“Without knowing it, it’s already been a year.”
The Moon Admiring God’s voice came from behind her. She quickly raised her hand to wipe the tears on her face and closed her eyes as she said in a soft voice, “Un.”
“You finally came out.” The Moon Admiring God gently patted Luo Qing Chen’s shoulder, just like how he would pat Ye Xuan Ji’s shoulder in the past. He said to her like an elder, “He wouldn’t want to see you like this.”
“Then what kind of me would he want to see?” Luo Qing Chen looked up with a clear self mockery in her clear eyes, “Doesn’t he know how selfish he is?”
Selfishly leaving her alone in this world, selfishly directing and acting in a play, making it seem like everything ended perfectly.
He gave her an end, but it was a heart wrenching ending.
“He was more troubled than anyone……” The Moon Admiring God’s words cut her off. He gave a helpless shake of the head as he said, “Perhaps he wasn’t troubled at all because he had his answer from the beginning. He just followed the answer in his heart to finish the story between you and him.”
“You want to have a drink?” Luo Qing Chen gave a shrug as she placed red flowers from the other side on the snow tomb. She turned to the Moon Admiring God and said, “I suddenly want to hear the story he wrote back then.”
The Moon Admiring God was surprised. Seeing the faint tears in her eyes, he gave a nod, “Alright.”
The moon and stars, they really were beautiful in the night sky above the Sea of Stars and Flowers.
Luo Qing Chen poured the wine in her cup and took a sip before looking at him, “You weren’t afraid of me seeing through your script?”
“We were.” The Moon Admiring God drank two cups and his expressions became a bit excited. It was like he was recalling the script as he said in a casual voice, “Do you remember? You went to the Mirror of Samsara in the Unbounded Land just to make sure, so I immediately headed to the Unbounded Land.”
Luo Qing Chen was surprised when she heard this as her eyes turned red.
She felt like the past was appearing in front of her eyes, scene by scene, like the images were changing which filled her with pain.
“So it was true that I sensed your existence in front of the Mirror of Samsara?” She suddenly felt that she had a chance to approach the truth, but she was still one step short.
“It’s true……” The Moon Admiring God gave a sigh, “The Mirror of Samsara was actually a barrier that I set up, so what you saw was the image that I wanted you to see.”
“Moon Admiring God, aren’t you afraid that I would hate you?” Luo Qing Chen looked over with her clear eyes filled with tears.
When one day that you realized that the love and hatred you felt was a play written by someone else, you would find out how helpless you were.
But you couldn’t hate because he did it all so she could live, so how could she hate him……
“No matter which one of you died, I would feel sad.” The Moon Admiring God said with a bitter smile, “But Xuan Ji already made a choice, so what could I do?”
“You’re not afraid that I’ll hate him?” She seemed to have drank too much as the tears started to fall.
Actually, she didn’t drink that much. She wanted to get drunk, she wanted to get drunk in this lonely world and never wake up.
“So you hate him?” The Moon Admiring God asked back.
Silence, silence, silence, deathly silence.
Without knowing how long passed, she pursed her lips and looked up at the large bright moon, “I don’t even have time to love him, how could I hate him.”
