Chapter 56: Second Transmigration (5)
“It’s better if you remain the ruthless and heartless Devil Emperor, Xuan Yi. As long as you continue your path, you will get your revenge one day.”
When Ye Yu finished saying this, the space that they were in began to twist and wrap.
The figures rushing in from the main hall began to fade as well and they glanced at each other in fear, wanting to communicate but unable to make any noises.
In the end, the last image that Ye Yu saw was the youth’s helpless but desperate face along with the veins on his forehead. His handsome face became distorted and fierce from the helpless cries.
He was probably saying “Ye Yu.”
As Ye Yu’s consciousness sunk into darkness, she was unhappy with how the last time the boy had called her, he called her with such an impolite name.
After a while, everyone disappeared.
In this empty underground palace, a phone descended from the sky and then fell with a bang…
“Ye Yu — !!!”
In this dark night within the Devil Emperor’s palace, there was a figure who sat up on his bed, screaming with a hoarse voice.
Outside the window, there was the sound of thunder rumbling and the dark sky was suddenly lit up by the light.
The pouring rain assaulted the tiles of the palace.
On this moist and damp rainy night, the youth whose body was covered in cold sweat and had black hair scattered over his shoulders wore thin pajamas had turned around and got off the bed.
He passed by the folding screen and walked into the front hall.
When he arrived at the round table, he grabbed the teapot and poured himself a cold cup of tea.
His slender fingers clutched the cup and he drank it in one gulp.
Then, the youth slammed the teacup firmly against the table.
For a while, his eyes were just pitch-black and quiet.
…it was the same dream again.
A few years ago, his cultivation was ruined by Xuan Bin, but he accidentally activated the devil palace’s underground palace due to his bloodline. There, he woke up the bloodline heritage power… Not long later, he found an object that wasn’t gold or jade deep within the underground palace.
The night that he picked that object up, he began to dream of a lot of strange and bizarre things.
In his dream, he had snuck into Xuan Bin’s residence in order to prepare for his revenge plan. However, he was accidentally injured and was forced to escape. Instead of meeting Yun Hua, he met someone named “Ye Yu” who saved him…the woman with the same name as Ye Residence’s princess.
After that, he was brought home by Ye Yu and taken good care of. Sometimes, that woman seemed to treat money like her life, but she would use all her money to bring a weak little puppy like him to the Spiritual Beast Pavilion in order to get his injuries treated… After that, he tagged along with the woman and watched as she went to tell fortune for people. He used the same teacup as her and got her dislike and then…
The events flashed through his mind and he didn’t even need to think to recall what happened… It felt like the 6 months that they were together wasn’t a dream, but a genuine experience.
He even felt the same feeling as the youth in the dream.
At the beginning, he was just curious about the woman, but then he couldn’t help but feel happy whenever he saw her. When he thought of her being injured, he wanted to rush to her side without a care. He was unwilling to part with her and wanted her to accompany him…
Plus, the heart-piercing desperation and pain in the last scene.
Whenever he thought of this, Xuan Yi couldn’t help but knit his eyebrows.
He raised his head and pressed it against his heart which seemed to be sore and faintly in pain still.
The only reason that could explain everything was…
The youth looked down and glanced at his left palm which a quiet rectangular object sat there.
This was the “tool” that allowed Ye Yu to tell fortune and at the same time, bring him his dream.
What was different from the dream was that the item would vibrate and light up in the dream, but it had been quiet like an inanimate object all these years by his sides.
…maybe it had been stubbornly waiting for its original master.
When he thought of that woman, he couldn’t help but think of her smile and appearance.
…”When the world resets, I hope the new you doesn’t meet me anymore.”…
That gentle voice was by his ears.
The youth slowly clutched his palm and the faint green veins slowly burst on the back of his hand.
He exclaimed the name in a deep and hoarse voice.
His words were full of deep thoughts and consideration.
The obsession had been carved in his bones already.
He can’t wipe it away or get rid of it.
