“Peng!” Du Jiu Sheng couldn’t take it anymore and fell down.
The moment he fell, his heart was incomparably calm.
His hair had long turned white and his face was covered in wrinkles, like he was an old man in his eighties, but his eyes were still as beautiful as the stars.
“Du Jiu Sheng!” Luo Qing Chen tightly hugged him as she broke out in tears. It was like she couldn’t say a single word seeing this kind of him, but she said in a trembling voice, “Don’t die…..I…..I’m begging you…..Have some way! You must have some way!”
“Truly a…..foolish Xiao Qing…..” He pursed his lips and raised his trembling wrinkled hand as he patted her head, “It’s already too late…..”
But his heart was filled with joy because at least he had kept his promise.
He said that he would protect her…..
He finally did it!
“Du Jiu Sheng…..we haven’t even been together yet, I still haven’t…...There are many things I haven’t told you yet…..” She tightly hugged him as streams of tears kept flowing down.
She knew why her heart had been so unsettled, she knew that something would happen!
Why, why would there be this kind of person in the world?
Only at the moment of death did he tell her the truth.
He used all those methods to protect her, how painful it must be…..
“Sorry, Xiao Qing.” He saw that she was this sad and his heart couldn’t help twisting with pain.
He didn’t want her to feel pain, he wanted to be with her forever.
Eating with her, watching TV together, and then stretching his hands out to tightly hold her.
But he already didn’t have the strength to raise his hands. He could only stare deeply at her as he said, “I’m not afraid…..of anything, I’m just unwilling to…..leave you.”
He really wasn’t willing to leave her, he had never been this reluctant to leave a person before.
They didn’t know each other long, their time together had been too short, but he had finally understood that Murong Xi kept talking about before.
But the moment he understood, he had no chance to love her.
How he wished time would go slower just a little bit, how he wished life would flow slower just a little bit…..
He still wanted to hug her, tightly holding her…...
“Du Jiu Sheng…..” She hugged him and felt his body becoming lighter until he stopped replying completely.
She already couldn’t cry anymore as she said with a face like dying ashes, “I will hate you…..”
It was like he woke up from a dream as he said in a hoarse voice, “Don’t hate me…..I will be very sad……”
She looked down at his completely white hair that could fall off with the slightest touch.
This was the terrifying part of the Destiny Life Map, it didn’t let a person die at once. Rather it slowly swallowed the life force of the user and slowly tortured them.
She bent over and pressed her face on his wrinkled face, as a hot tear fell down onto his face.
It was like he could feel it as he opened his eyes with difficulty for the last time.
He wanted to say something, but he couldn’t say a thing.
“I love you, Du Jiu Sheng…..” She moved beside his ear and said in a trembling voice, “If you also like Luo Qing Chen, don’t die…..alright?”
How selfish of a wish, how unreasonable of a request, how childish of a confession…..
But what else could she do!
There were his final words that came after a while, which were very, very light…..
But she could clearly hear them.
“Truly a foolish Xiao Qing…..”
