Yi Yi calmly looked her father in the eyes, “He’s my fiance.”

“…”

There really wasn’t much for him to say to that, was there?

Yi Yi had always been a stickler for facts. Since she had acknowledged Mo Ke as her fiance, then she was dead set on him for life. Even if he were to actually kick the bucket, she still wouldn’t find another person to marry.

The two might have only met each other briefly, but the sight of him, a frail and weak human, protecting her to the death was something she had never experienced before and would never forget.

Ancerl knew what his daughter’s temperament was like, so he did not try to press the issue further, instead changing the topic, “There’s been some reports recently of an interesting bunch of little things, they seem to have some connection to that brat.”

“Mhm. Yi Yi has sensed them as well.”

“Should daddy take care of them for you?”

“There’s no need…” Yi Yi shook her head. “Just leave it all up to fate.”

As if on cue, a gust of wind gently blew past the girl, carrying with it a petal from the purple flowers nearby into the distance…

Planet Gaia: Southern Plains City

The city of Southern Plains was a tourist city modelled after the ancient times. Most of the buildings in the city were built in the style of a thousand years ago, similar to what you would see if you were in ancient China.

Amidst all that, a strikingly white soul silently drifted across the night sky, finally stopping just behind a middle-aged man in the middle of a suburban district. The wandering soul channeled whatever scant energy it had left in itself into its arm, then forcefully choked the man from behind.

The man immediately started to struggle violently. Unfortunately, the strength of that wandering soul was too much.

A moment later, the wandering soul’s body began to transform into a liquid-like state, gently flowing into the exposed orifices of the man. Slowly but surely, the struggling died down, until finally, the man collapsed to the floor as if dead.

A few hours had passed uneventfully till the man suddenly stirred from his torpor. He stood up as if nothing had even happened, then wordlessly got into his car and drove back to the city. Finally, he entered a towering office building which was labelled in bold letters as ‘Life Unbound Biotech Private Limited’

Somewhere in Gehenna…

The Skeleton King and the Lich King met once more, in that same icy cavern with a skeletal throne in the center. As he sat atop his throne, the Skeleton King quietly watched the scenes unfold before him in a floating sphere of light.

After a long while, he finally spoke. “Are you certain that Karlston has successfully entered the new world?”

“When have I ever failed in my plans? Besides, Karlston himself is a demigod. Passing through the dimensional barriers would at most destroy his physical body. Reconstituting his soul flame and possessing a mortal shell should be easy.” The Lich King replied in his hollow voice. “Once he has made it in, it’s only a matter of time.”

“You are sure your formula works then?”

“As long as the target is alive, it will work.” The Lich King answered without any hesitation. “But I’ve heard that the new world does not contain mana, it might be… difficult for that formula to take its full effect.”

“Hmph, I just knew you couldn’t be relied on.”

“But that’s why Karlston is over there, isn’t he? He used to be an excellent necromancer in life.”

“Fine, that will have to do for now.”

“Don’t worry, you won’t be disappointed.”

Planet Gaia: Phoenix City

“Ke, there’s something I need to talk to you about. It’s about school…”

Duanmu Bitong, dressed in pink pyjamas, walked up to Mo Ke while rubbing dry her hair with an equally pink towel.

“What’s wrong with school, Sister Bitong?” Seated in the middle of the room, Mo Ke turned his head around with a start to look at the girl.

“The school was blown up.” She stated in a matter-of-fact tone.

“YES!” Mo Ke immediately stood up and did a banzai.

Seeing the boy so excited, Duanmu Bitong couldn’t help but chuckle a little before saying with a smirk, “Naturally, that was just a joke.”

“…”

“But I was just thinking to myself in the bath, if Ke really does not want to go to school, it’s alright as well.”

“Really?”

“Really. However…” Duanmu Bitong deliberately paused at that point. “I need Ke to promise me something.”

“What’s that?”

“You mustn’t dress like a boy!” She declared with all the seriousness in the world.

“…”

“If Ke doesn’t want to go to school, he has to stay in drag.”

“Never!”

“Then go to school.”

“…” Mo Ke fell silent, a thousand indignations bottled up in his chest.

Seeing her little brother so visibly torn over the fact that he had to choose between wearing drag and going to school, she realised that she had gone overboard with this joke of hers.

Remorseful, she sighed before finally offering as such, “How about this? At least while you’re at home, you have to stay in drag. And Ke can only go work at aunty Qiao’s, nowhere else.”

“Oh, fine…” Even though he was still a little unhappy with the terms, he knew this was the biggest concession he was going to get from her.”

Having settled Mo Ke, Duanmu Bitong left for her own room where she started a video call with her mom, Duanmu Xinqing.

About to head to sleep herself, Duanmu Xinqing quickly picked up the call in her bedroom when she saw that it was her precious daughter. “What’s the matter, miss your mummy already?”

“Mum, there’s something I need to talk to you about…”

From the beginning, she was never one to call her mother for idle chat. She had grievances to air, and she dove right into them. For example, how aunty Qiao Yin was mean to her, or how aunty Qiao Yin was trying to introduce her daughter to Mo Ke.

The moment Xinqing heard that her dear sister was trying to snatch her future son-in-law from her, she quickly hung up and called her.

Right this very instant, Qiao Yin was talking to a black-haired girl that looked to be about eleven years old. The moment Duanmu Xinqing’s call went through, the three of them ended up being in the same video call.

“Hello aunty Xinqing.” The little girl politely greeted the projection of Duanmu Xinqing. “It has been a while, have your experiments been going well?”

“They are proceeding at a decent pace.” She answered without much thought before smiling warmly at the little girl, any thought of admonishing the girl completely driven out of her head. “So Jiaojiao was having a chat with your mum? I hope your aunty Xinqing wasn’t interrupting anything.”

“Not at all, mum was just talking to Jiaojiao about aunty Xinqing and sister Bitong.” Qiao Yin shook her and smiled as adorably as before. “Aunty Xinqing, I’ve heard that sister Bitong is staying with another big brother?”

(Say no to content thief!)

“What do you mean, another big brother? That’s your big brother Mo Ke.” Qian Yin suddenly interjected herself with a light admonishment before Xinqing could even respond. “Your big brother Mo Ke and sister Bitong grew up together.”

“That’s right. That’s right. Your big brother Mo Ke went missing two years ago, and he was found only recently.” Duanmu Xinqing nodded her head. “Don’t tell me you’ve already forgotten about your big brother?”

Seeing her own mother and her aunty suddenly affirm the existence of this Mo Ke, Qiao Jiaojiao was suddenly left at a loss for words. Perhaps she was the one that was actually amnesiac? She thought to herself.

“Huh? So there really is such a person?

“Of course, there is!” The two ladies answered in unison. And he’s super adorable too. The two added on silently.



Shameless Self-promotion
