Chapter 106: The back figure in his the heart
“Tell me the reason. I don’t want to do anything without a reason.” Ye Tian Xie was breathing was very disorderly. His heart was also wildly beating in chaos.
“Reason…..” The azure haired man slightly closed his eyes. His perfect face tilted upwards and he looked up to the sky. Then, he said in a wispy voice, “If you can defeat or even kill me, I will be grateful to you…….You can also gain the Azure Soul. Otherwise, I can destroy the Azure Soul at any time. This reason, is it enough?”
Ye Tian Xie: “!!”
Ye Tian Xie shook his head and coldly said, “This is not a reason.”
“There are some things, regardless of you or me, that surpass this life and world. It even surpasses the cycle of rebirth, surpassing time and space and can never be escaped from……It is something destined by fate and no one can ever escape from fate. I have no choice. You, also have no choice…….” The azure haired man looked at the sky and said something that Ye Tian Xie could not understand. It was also at this moment that he released an extremely lonely and sad aura, turning the surrounding area extremely depressing.
“Ah, since it’s like this, I’ll promise you then.” After several seconds of silence, Ye Tian Xie suddenly raised his head and gave his reluctant answer without any hesitation.
The azure haired man lowered his head to look at him.
“You’re very strong. Before I came to this world, I never would have thought that there would be anyone that could reach this level of strength. But, since you’re saying these kinds of words, regardless of who you are, I definitely would not reject…….Although I can’t even take a single attack from you, but even it it takes over ten years, there will be a day when I will defeat you……Do you know the oath I took when I was ten years old?”
Azure haired man: “??”
Ye Tian Xie’s eyes shined, like two flames burning, “If I want the world, there are only people who cannot defeat me and there is no one in this world I cannot defeat……In this world, I will also make this a reality!”
Even though this azure haired man was very mysterious and strong, and even though he had saved him, Ye Tian Xie would not show him a weak appearance. Currently he was just taking his first steps into this world and he was considered a strong person among players, but compared to the experts of this world, his strength could not even compare. But he would not lose in terms of arrogance to anyone.
A player would not try to fight against a NPC that had strength far surpassing their own, but Ye Tian Xie was the one exception to this rule. Deep down in his heart, he was very different compared to other people. This kind of arrogance that allowed no one to surpass him was not naturally born, rather it was something that he had slowly developed.
The eyes of the azure haired man fell onto his face and he locked gazes with Ye Tian Xie. For a moment, he suddenly broke out in a smile……That smile was very light and very gentle, perfectly coordinating with his flawless face. His smile made people sink into a deep killing intent, but he was clearly smiling……Facing this smile, Ye Tian Xie could not help feeling pain in his heart.
This smile……Why is it so familiar…….
“I’ll wait…..for the day you’ll be able to defeat me.” He smiled while talking. This time, he seemed like a real person, having the expression and appearance of a normal person. “I……will only help you one more time. After that, everything will depend on you……Tian Xie.”
Ye Tian Xie: “…….”
Tian Xie……He called me……Tian Xie!?
Tian Xie, the name he had in the real world. In the past, she had changed his name, and there was only her that would affectionately call him that name……And in this game world, his name was clearly – Xie Tian!
Such a coincidence. Perhaps……
Just as Ye Tian Xie was about to speak, the azure haired man’s hand stretched out to him and grabbed his arm. The surroundings suddenly turned into stretch of white nothing.
Space Teleportation……Ye Tian Xie suddenly thought of this in his mind as the white world slowly began to regain its colours. But, the scenery that appeared was completely different from the one he had seen before.
“Tian Xie, goodbye. As for meeting in the future, we will definitely meet again.”
Ye Tian Xie did not even have the time to look around his surroundings before the azure haired man’s indifferent voice sounded in his ears. He quickly turned around and said, “Wait, you still haven’t told me where I am right now……Also, tell me this, have we met before!”
A NPC of the game world and a player from the real world, two people that should never have met before. If he asked this to a normal person, it would seem very crazy, but he asked the question after he felt his heart pound several times, longing to hear the answer.
“Where this is, you’ll find out very soon……The answers for the questions you ask, you need to find with your own strength and see with your own eyes, use your heart to feel them. Otherwise, if you hear them from someone else, you will not believe them or feel comfortable about them……Goodbye.”
Ye Tian Xie: “……”
His voice was wispy just like a cold wind blowing against the clouds. It was hard for a person to tell if his words were true or false, reality or just an illusion. The azure haired man turned and slowly walked away. The azure wolf silently looked at Ye Tian Xie and then silently followed behind him.
Ye Tian Xie subconsciously wanted to go forward a step. Right as he was about to shout out, he suddenly realized something and he quickly turned to look behind him. At this time, he was amazed to see nothing but black and indigo in front of him – He was standing at the edge of a ten thousand feet deep abyss.
Ten thousand feet abyss, this was an abyss that wasn’t overexaggerated to be called “ten thousand feet deep”. Looking in front of him, he could see that the abyss truly covered a giant area. He could not see the end, he could only see the black and indigo sky up above. And looking down, he could only see darkness, with no bottom in sight.
Regaining his composure from the shock, Ye Tian Xie did not have the time to think about what this place was or why the azure haired man had brought him here. He quickly turned his head to look at the leaving back figure of the azure haired man. He had suddenly appeared and then brought him to this strange place before suddenly leaving. After being together for this short period of time, it was as if his body was covered in a thick mist. It was impossible for anyone to see through or catch him.
An incomparably mysterious and charming man. His expression and eyes told Ye Tian Xie that he was someone half dead and half alive……This kind of person, even if he had the most perfect image and the strongest power, he would never be truly happy……Even his eyes showed that he was dead inside…….
He wants to die……But there was something he had to do that made him continue living. So, he had no choice but to keep living and strive for that unknown goal.
This is what Ye Tian Xie had understood from observing him……And these emotions that came from someone else, actually made his heart feel a deep sadness.
Who was he……What is this person’s background……And what kind of things has he experienced……
Why was his expression……
That back figure with the azure hair slowly went further and further away in Ye Tian Xie’s view. Then Ye Tian Xie’s body suddenly trembled, as if he had just been struck by lightning. Following that, his emotions suddenly fluctuated, making his entire body violently tremble……
Back figure…..that back figure……
“Wait…..Wait…..Stop for me!!” Hysterical screams came from Ye Tian Xie’s mouth as he crazily rushed forward like a maniac chasing after that back figure. A strong wind blew across his ears and a kind of exploding sensation filled his chest……But in that moment, he forgot about everything, he even forgot to breathe. In that blank world, the only thing that remained was the back figure that cast a shadow which he could never forget……All his strength and all his thoughts forced him to wildly chase after this far away back figure. He shouted out with all his might, screaming for him to stop.
The azure haired man’s figure paused for a bit, that sudden shout had made his body turn stiff. The azure wolf also stopped as it silently looked at its master. The azure haired man raised his head and looked at the sky that was void of colour to him. He slowly closed his eyes that were filled with relief which was then followed by a look of sadness and reminiscence. Then his hand slightly waved to beckon something.
A surge of wind began to blow, wildly smashing against Ye Tian Xie’s body. Immediately, while Ye Tian Xie continued to loudly scream out, his body was blown high up. He flew across the air in an irregular parabola……falling down into the ten thousand feet abyss. He entered the dark, endless world while continuing to scream out.
The azure haired man turned around and looked at where Ye Tian Xie had just stood with an apathetic gaze. His lips moved slightly and he whispered in a voice that even he almost couldn’t hear……
He closed his eyes and slowly turned around, then he walked forward.
He did not have a goal or a direction to head in, he didn’t even know where the road in front of him would lead. He did not know where he would even go from now on.
A dreary gently breeze blew and fallen leaves danced in the air. The leaves danced in the wind that came from who knows where and brought a kind of misery and silence to the atmosphere.
One man, one wolf. He was never just a single shadow, he was always followed by the shadow of his partner, but his aura, his expression, and the image of his back, they all exuded a kind of loneliness and sadness. He was clearly walking by, but he did not exude a single trace of being alive. Even the leaves falling by his feet, they gave off more of an existence than he did.
His footsteps were evenly quiet. Wherever he went, the atmosphere seemed to become depressed.
Unconsciously, when he realized that there was no path in front of him, he realized that he was standing on top of a withered hill.
He stood there in a daze and looked forward with his dead eyes, but he could not see any colours or his way home. The cold wind blew and his azure hair danced, but it was not enough to cause any ripples deep in his heart. At this moment, he was like a person that was living, but had lost his soul.
