Finding a haystack near the farmland, Lu Shenxing fell onto it and rubbed himself back into a comfortable posture. He tilted his head while holding his sword, and put on a pleasant and lazy air despite the embarrassing situation.
Ning Que walked over and squatted next to him, softly asking for his advice, "Da Shixiong, is it okay to sleep here?"
He was answered with a grunt.
Da Shixiong snored when he was asleep. Ning Que looked at him in a novel way, couldn't help but take a slender straw among those scattered on the ground, and poke him with one end of it.
Lu Shenxing frowned, waved and held his hand down, his voice was a little hoarse from the deep sleepiness, "Behave, don't make trouble."
Ning Que was stunned, "Da Shixiong?"
His heavy eyelashes blinked, looking at the hand he was holding a little strangely, as if it wasn’t annoying at all.
"Da Shixiong, I can't move." Ning Que spoke to himself, unsure whether he was excusing himself or explaining to the sleeping Lu Shenxing. He held his hand and leaned down to sleep next to him.
His legs sank under a weight and Ning Que frowned, hesitated for a long time, and finally decided not to move.
After sleeping for a while, Ning Que woke up hungry. He laid out the food he had gotten from Jiang Wangchu, but didn’t eat it, just stared at it then put it away.
After a long period of self-destruction, Lu Shenxing slept deeply and long. He thought in a daze, that this haystack was quite soft, and it seemed to be warm.
His consciousness sank and the drowsiness set in. Lu Shenxing, who was intending to sleep again, suddenly opened his eyes. Yellow clothes filled his vision and when he turned his head, he collided with something hard. He immediately got up from Ning Que's legs.
Ning Que made a small gesture that made Lu Shenxing hold his breath. His eyebrows were slightly furrowed, and the corners of his mouth curled down a small arc. He felt sad and lost. It was probably a dream.
Different images and different faces appeared in his mind. Lu Shenxing covered his brow, his mind with the colour of memories. He couldn't help but stretch out his hand and touch Ning Que's mouth with his thumb...
Ning Que, who had also woken up, looked at the person with a darkened right eye in surprise, "Da Shixiong, what happened to your eyes?" He clearly remembered that he was fine before going to bed.
Suddenly noticing the depressing aura emanating from Lu Shenxing, Ning Que held his sword in an attacking posture, looked around guardedly, and asked in a low voice, "Did someone attack?"
Lu Shenxing glanced at the innocent culprit, smiled, and said slowly, "Please kiss me."
"..." Ning Que was stunned for a long while, his eyes widened, "Da Shixiong, what are you saying?"
Lu Shenxing narrowed his eyes, and spoke simply and plainly, "Kiss me."
Ning Que shook his head sharply.
Lu Shenxing approached slowly, holding down the back of Ning Que's head before he could avoid him.
The warm breath scattered across his face. Ning Que couldn't shake him. He closed his eyes subconsciously, unmoving.
A little disappointed at not seeing the slightest sense of recognition in his eyes, Lu Shenxing stood up unwillingly. Then I’ll wait for you to recognize me.
Ning Que chased after him with his numb legs, "Da Shixiong, wait for me."
"We should split up." Lu Shenxing spoke emotionlessly. "You go east, I’ll go west, let’s get out of here as soon as possible."
Ning Que stood there and mumbled, hanging his head and gently rubbed the toes of his shoes against the grass, unconsciously lost.
The sense of loss wasn’t a sudden occurrence, but it had been growing at the bottom of his heart until he could no longer ignore it. Ning Que's face changed slightly, his ears flushed in shame as he grew more and more flustered and confused. He must have been affected by the illusion. He quickly muttered to himself again, attempting to calm his nerves.
Lu Shenxing knew that someone was following him, and that the person was Ning Que, but he couldn't look back. This wasn’t a playhouse. The longer he stayed in the illusory world, the more confused his mind would get. Whether it was him or Ning Que, they had to get out.
Before sunset, Lu Shenxing found that the figure sitting not far behind him had disappeared. He breathed a sigh of relief, Ning Que had successfully left the illusion.
The lonely Lu Shenxing wandered the town and encountered many other disciples. They enjoyed the status quo and were deeply trapped in their own desires. They couldn't break away from their desires, and were unwilling to leave. Seeing Lu Shenxing, they also showed off their joyful lives.
Some were already consumed by their mundane lives, and were almost unrecognizable.
Time passed too quickly and Lu Shenxing felt like decades had passed.
He went to the casino to gamble and got cramps, quarreled with a few thugs, and vented his long-suppressed violent mood, then went to Ji Mian Hall to listen to a night of music. He got drunk in the tavern and indulged unreservedly for days and nights. Then Lu Shenxing began to meditate.
It went well at the beginning. Lu Shenxing overcame the desires of hunger, exhaustion, and jealousy until the final hurdle.
The young man in a round collared robe lowered his head, his cheeks flushed, and said softly, "General, this subordinate has been waiting for you for a long time."
There was a hand covering his, and that hand was slightly cold. Lu Shenxing knew that Xin Liang's appearance was an illusion but when he was about to get rid of it, there was a pain in his neck, and a dumb voice came, "I want you."
Lu Shenxing's aura began to fluctuate, fuck it, are you all going to gather for a family gathering?
The young man in a blue and white sportswear was eating cucumber seriously. The corners of his lips were raised, and his voice was a little fuzzy from the sound of swallowing, "Xiao Shu, do you miss me?"
Sweat dripped from his forehead. Lu Shenxing's facial expression gradually became distorted in his struggle. He heard the beautiful sound of a piano digging into his eardrums. To Lu Shenxing it no longer sounded beautiful, but hypnotic.
Lu Shenxing furrowed his brows and tried his best to restrain himself, but Shi Changan's figure still appeared, looking at him expectantly. He smiled and stretched out his slender hand to unbutton his shirt, and said softly, "Daddy, come here."
Different feelings came from different places. Lu Shenxing's breathing was thick and heavy. Suddenly, all illusions and the town were gone. The wind whistled in his ears, his pupils shrank and he saw Ning Que falling off a cliff.
Lu Shenxing rushed forward without hesitation, grabbing Ning Que's hand and pulling him up with an anxious expression, "Are you okay? Are there any injuries?"
Not waiting for a response, Lu Shenxing immediately picked up Ning Que, and checked his arms and legs, and asked uneasy, "Where does it hurt?"
"Da Shixiong, don't leave me." Ning Que put his arms around Lu Shenxing's neck and moved his lips against his face.
Lu Shenxing suddenly pushed Ning Que away, gasping for breath, it was all illusions, one by one. Love was the biggest devil in his heart. The more he tried to remove it, the more painful it became.
"222, state your terms."
"Ding, 100 million love points."
"Fine." He didn’t hesitate.
He didn’t care about the 100 million, in this situation, any condition would’ve been fine.
Lu Shenxing instinctively calmed down and his whole body relaxed. When he opened his eyes again, a sea of white flowers swayed in front of him, and there was a mass of flesh lying on the beach.
"Da Shixiong——" Jiang Wangchu got up using hands and feet and ran into Lu Shenxing's arms as if he had seen a savior.
Lu Shenxing stretched out his hand to hold Jiang Wangchu down. If they’d collided it’d be like being crushed by a pig.
"It’s just you? What about the others?"
"I don't know, there was no one here when I came." Jiang Wangchu was so miserable it was comical. He didn't dare to walk around rashly, so he’d squatted and waited. There were no ants on the ground, or insects in the air, it was as if he were the only living creature, and he was too scared to sleep.
Lu Shenxing looked at the white flowers. They were exactly the same as those seen in the town, except that they were of different colors. These were pure white and the others were pure black. Suddenly the words that Wan Guanqian had said appeared in his mind. The flowers are white. The leaves are big and the petals are...
Lu Shenxing looked at the sea of flowers again to see if the Naoyang and Spiral flowers were the same flower.
An idea spread in his heart, and Lu Shenxing's eyelids jumped suddenly. Could this be the place of death Wan Guanqian had mentioned?
Jiang Wangchu was still in tears with his nose running, looking miserable.
The little fat man was scared, but instead of running around, he’d chosen to stay where he was. He was lucky. Lu Shenxing touched the aphid egg in his sleeve and made sure it was intact.
"Where are we going? Da Shixiong, shouldn’t we wait for Er Shixiong and the others?" Jiang Wangchu asked as he walked.
"They should be somewhere else." Following Wan Guanqian's explanation, Lu Shenxing was cautious and alert, taking extra care with every step.
"Da Shixiong, do you have anything to eat?" Jiang Wangchu swallowed his saliva, his three-layer chin had become thinner, "I’m so hungry."
"Endure." Lu Shenxing said in a dark tone.
After walking for a while, Jiang Wangchu’s body sank, the top of his head vanished beneath the earth in the blink of an eye. He didn’t even have a chance to scream.
Lu Shenxing quickly took out a talisman and crushed it, and the ground split open
Jiang Wangchu, who was returned to the surface, was terrified. He shook like a sieve and held Lu Shenxing's legs and cried. His nose, eyes, and mouth were covered with mud. "Da Shixiong, don't leave me here."
Lu Shenxing pulled Jiang Wangchu by the back collar vigorously. He was covered in mud, and the stench pierced his nose, making him sick.
"Didn't I tell you to follow me exactly?" Lu Shenxing was angry. It was all this little fat man’s fault.
"I was just walking along Da Shixiong’s footprints." Jiang Wangchu trembled and wiped his eyes aggrieved.
Lu Shenxing took a breath and felt that the ground under his feet was moving and his own feet were sinking in while he was distracted.
"Open your mouth." Lu Shenxing threw a pill into Jiang Wangchu's mouth. The Bai family's business was big and his storage bag wasn’t small. There were many things in it, for almost any occasion.
Jiang Wangchu swallowed, and didn’t forget to ask, "Da Shixiong, what did you give me?"
A reminder sounded in his head, the task progress changed from zero to ten. The surprise came too fast, Lu Shenxing almost couldn't believe it.
Little Fatty was the protagonist of this world? The title of the book was ‘The Counterattack Life of Waste Chai’? Lu Shenxing instantly imagined the plot.
Was his task to help the little fat man become an immortal? Glancing at the dirty and smelly boy in front of him, Lu Shenxing's temples throbbed, why couldn’t it be someone else, just switch it to Liuyang, this is too hard.
Footsteps came from bushes on the left, and Jiang Wangchu shouted in surprise, "Er Shixiong!"
After returning to his senses, Lu Shenxing saw Liuyang, his robe was torn, his lips were chapped, and his face was gray. It was the first time he saw him in such an embarrassing state and he asked casually, "Are you injured?"
Liuyang was silent, his scabbard was missing and the tip of his sword was covered with dirt and grass juice. He looked like he’d been fighting the earth.
Seeing Liuyang staring at him, Jiang Wangchu stopped wiping his face and spoke, "Xiao Shidi isn’t with us."
"Did you run into it too?" Liuyang thought of what he had experienced before, and his face showed palpitations. There was an enchantment here, and they could only walk on foot.
Lu Shenxing groaned, "Look for Ning Que first."
"We need to find a way out." Liuyang raised his objection blankly.
"I said, find Ning Que first." Lu Shenxing looked at Liuyang coldly, "Do you need me to say it again?"
Liuyang's anger came so unexpectedly that he didn't even realise what he was feeling.
When Jiang Wangchu saw that the two seniors were about to fight, he quickly raised his hands weakly, "Um...I also think we should find Xiao Shidi.."
Two to one, Liuyang had nothing to say.
The three of them left, there was no one to guide them here. The atmosphere was inexplicably dull. Lu Shenxing was anxious, worried about Ning Que's safety, and even Liuyang was affected by his mood.
The faint smell of blood lingered on the tip of his nose, and Lu Shenxing handed over a small green bottle.
"Leave me alone." Liuyang's tone was stiff.
Throwing the small bottle at him, Lu Shenxing sneered, "If you want to die here, then do it somewhere else."
Damn, if it wasn't for the safety of numbers, he really didn't care about getting Ning Que out safely at all.
Jiang Wangchu was frightened. Da Shixiong was so cruel. He thought that Er Shixiong would get angry and leave but unexpectedly he picked up the small bottle on the ground and held it tightly in his hand, and endured.
Liuyang treated the wound, his face as tight as ever. Finally, he spit out two words hard against the air, just a little bit louder than a mosquito’s buzz, "Thank you."
"..." Lu Shenxing's mouth twitched. Presumably being indebted to him was an unprecedented shame for Liuyang, and he was definitely displeased.
There was an abrupt voice in his head, reminding him that the task progress was at 5%. Lu Shenxing's face sank after being excited for a moment. He was already 10% when he saved Jiang Wangchu.
Lu Shenxing's eyes flashed as he swept across Liuyang beside him, it was impossible...
"222, do I have two tasks this time?"
"Ding, Mr. Lu, after filling out this review, all information for the fourth novel will be given to you."
For some reason, Lu Shenxing heard some resentment in its tone, as if it had been waiting for this for a long time.
Lu Shenxing joked in his heart, "Are you relying on this to get a bonus or something?"
The system stopped speaking, and a few lines appeared in Lu Shenxing's mind.
222 Due diligence during work, serious and rigorous attitude, diligent, meticulous, patient, responsible, always on call, no complaints...
After reciting the last word, Lu Shenxing felt that his eyes were going blind. He had seen shameless people before, but never one as shameless as this.
I just realised I may have forgot to re-enable the comment system when I was fixing something else...sorry, it was a mistake it's all back online now.
