Gu Xijiu glanced at him and casually answered, "The man who pretended to be Long Xi."
Her voice was clear. Long Siye seemed to hear her voice and slowly raised his head. He looked at the two persons who stood in front of the door then he focused his sights on Gu Xijiu. He seemed to feel pain and then slowly lowered his head again.
Gu Xijiu was very good at recognizing people. Although he looked very haggard, she knew that this was the real Long Siye while the one who went to her room and confessed to her was a fake one. If she was not mistaken, that fake one should be a clone.
Although the two people looked the same, their temperaments were somewhat different. Especially for Gu Xijiu, since she was betrayed by Long Siye, she could recognize him very accurately because she had been so close to him before. However, she never expected to see him being handcuffed here. What had happened?
The silver-haired Lord sighed and replied, "Xijiu, you're so smart. He pretended to be Long Xi and tried to approach you. Someone reported it to me, so I decided to punish him."
Gu Xijiu glanced at the place where Long Siye hands and legs were handcuffed. His wrists and ankles were surrounded by short and sharp needles. Based on estimated the length of a needle, it should have penetrated into his bones, which was why his wrists and ankles were bleeding.
"Is he a clone?"
The silver-haired Lord chuckled and nodded. "Yes, he was a failed product of Elder Long's experiments."
Long Siye merely closed his eyes. He did not respond to what the silver-haired Lord said.
Gu Xijiu looked at him again and sighed. "Actually since he was just pretending to be Long Xi, you don't have to punish him so badly, right?"
The silver-haired Lord smiled. "Are you pleading for him?"
Gu Xijiu answered firmly,"I just think that he is not that sinful to deserve this treatment."
"What if he is really Long Xi?" The silver-haired Lord suddenly asked.
Gu Xijiu's face turned angry and said without hesitation, "I will kill him!"
The silver-haired Lord took out a sharp-edged dagger from his sleeve. "You can do it now. Go and kill him!"
Gu Xijiu did not accept it. "I don't kill clones!"
The silver-haired Lord said, "You can treat him as the real Long Xi to practice."
Gu Xijiu calmly replied, "Unfortunately he is not. I never kill the innocent." She stared at the silver-haired Lord. "Human clones are also human beings. Even if he is a failed product, he has his own thinking and his own life. We have to treat him like a normal person unless you like to kill the innocent."
The silver-haired Lord was speechless. He smiled and raised his hand to flick Gu Xijiu's hair. "Of course not. I have always been compassionate. I won't kill the innocents."
He lifted up his hand and issued a multicolored light. The cramps on Long Siye wrists and ankles were released, and Long Siye fell down on the ground. It was clear that he was severely injured because he was struggling to stand up.
He looked very embarrassed. However, when he was lying there, his back was straight as if he did not want to surrender.
He looked up at them, but as his face was mostly covered by his hair, Gu Xijiu could not see his expression. However, she could sense that he was staring at her. He probably never thought that she would help him.
