Mo Zhao might not be as cunning or as smart as Di Fuyi, but he was undoubtedly crueler than him. As the saying goes, "the strongest person is the one with no desires." Basically, the one who had nothing to lose.
Even though Mo Zhao looked gentle, he was ruthless. No one could threaten him. He would abandon his companions if it helped him to achieve his goals.
Di Fuyi used to be like this too. However, it was now his weakness. As soon as his weakness was revealed, he was vulnerable to his enemies. Perhaps his biggest mistake was to fall in love with Gu Xijiu.
Long Fan had always treated the rules of the world like sh*t. He always felt that those rules were hypocritical and it was the reason why he would instead befriend the devil.
He had always believed he made the right choice but was left disappointed ever since Mo Zhao disregarded his life so that he could defeat Di Fuyi. However, Long Fan was very loyal to Mo Zhao, so he tried to ignore the disappointment.
Nonetheless, now that Mo Zhao seemed to be rechallenging him because of the rumor about the castrated cloned body. He suddenly felt tired of accommodating for this man! Deep down in his heart, he now doubted whether he had made the right choice after all.
Both of them casually chatted for a while. During that time, Mo Zhao continued to test him. He suspected that Long Fan had deliberately castrated him!
Long Fan's frustrations grew. He could not help himself and said, "My Great Lord, I have been very loyal to you! I was terrified to find out about this too. Over the past two days, I have been swamped trying to find a way to heal you. Why are you suspicious of me…?"
Mo Zhao was worried that Long Fan might discontinue his research, so he laughed and patted his shoulder. "I do not doubt you. I am just in a bad mood these two days; please bear with me. Alright, carry on with your work. I am going to see how the wedding preparations are going." Then, he walked away.
Long Fan closed his eyes and sat there momentarily. He then got up and walked into Gu Xijiu's room. Gu Xijiu was fast asleep. Her eyes were closed, and her long eyelashes formed a semi-circular shape under her eyelids. She looked weak but beautiful at the same time.
Long Fan did not dare to stay too close to her as she had a unique sense of smell now. He smelled like a corpse to her when he was near her. She would awaken if he walked any closer to her.
He sighed as he was confused about his feelings toward Gu Xijiu. She seemed like a daughter to him, but at the same time, she was not his actual daughter. He also felt like she was his lover but again not entirely so.
In his heart, creating Gu Xijiu had been the proudest moment in his life. He even hoped to see her become someone great so that he could prove that he was successful. However, he had turned his proudest possession into an idiot to satisfy Mo Zhao selfish desires.
Gu Xijiu did not seem to be sleeping well. She murmured a few words while she was asleep but it was too soft, and Long Fan was not able to hear it.
He was stunned for a moment and decided to go nearer to her so that he could listen to what she said. However, Gu Xijiu suddenly slapped him and said, "You are smelly! Go away!"
Long Fan was unprepared for it, so her slap hit him right on his cheek. It was the first time that he was slapped in his life. He was stunned for a while before he scolded, "Gu XIjiu!" Gu Xijiu was still asleep and did not react to him.
Had she deliberately slapped him or was it because she felt uncomfortable with his smell and so she had subconsciously hit him away while she was asleep?
