Ch 46: A crowd of evil spirit lines up to confess to me (1/4)
Chapter 46: 4th Instance (End) (part 1 of 4)
We’ll certainly meet again
The location was still this island, but the atmosphere was not quite the same as in the present.
Generally speaking, the island within this memory looks just like any ordinary island in the normal world. The surroundings were completely normal, with birds chirping in the forest from time to time, as well as the scent of the blades of grass brought about by the breeze.
Gu Wuji: “……” Right, this looks just like a place where living people exists, ah.
He reached out in an attempt to touch the tree next to him, and could clearly feel the existence of the object. But since this nothing more than a memory, the other people should not be able to see him.
Footsteps sounded soon after, Gu Wuji instinctively went to take cover, then looked over very cautiously, and saw a group of people startlingly appear before his eyes.
Led by a young man with light gold hair, with a beautiful countenance. The ice-blue eyes made him appear rational and a bit distant.
Despite that, his entire being looks much gentler the moment he looks at the other people. The eyes was full of trust towards his companions, in addition to having a firm belief.
Without a doubt, this blonde haired young man should be the malicious spirit boss of this instance, a single glance could tell that he was once a reasonably good person.
Gu Wuji’s eyes glanced towards the other people as well, and noticed that several of these people looked very familiar. Looking down to the group photo he took out from his chest pocket, instantly made him realize that several of these people in front of him, whether it be their clothes or accessories were the same as with this group photo.
“It was actually like this…… It seems like this is the time when this photo was taken. Did the memory unexpectedly start from this time?”
“Those nobles would have never expected that we would actually be able to kill all the hired thugs hunting us down!” A person excitedly waved the self-made bow and arrow in his hand, “It’s all thanks to the boss! Otherwise, we would simply be incapable of resisting at all.”
“We even managed to grab a lot of supplies, everyone should be able to fill their stomach now.”
“Continuing like this, we will be able to kill those nobles sooner or later, and leave this island.”
Everyone who had originally been struggling on death’s door on the island, now had the light of hope in their eyes, and the blonde haired young man surrounded by them looked at everyone with a smile.
At the very least, they firmly believed that their group can continue to develop down this path at this moment.
Nevertheless, Gu Wuji couldn’t help from sighing as he looked on at such a scene. Even if the blonde haired young man can be truly deemed as a kindhearted and capable person, but the people around him were simply not worthy to be his companions.
The scene soon changed, an ill-lit scene appeared before him, and appears to be inside some sort of cave. It was still those people who appeared, as well as some passer-by who hadn’t showed up before, only that blonde haired young man was not present.
“What should we do in the end? The person sent by those nobles said that as long as the boss dies, they will let all of us leave, properties will even be given……”
Naturally, properties were just consequential to the perspective of these people. Being able to leave this island, is the freedom they were looking forward to for such a very long time. The thing that had originally been thought to be out of reach, was almost at hand now, causing everyone to waver.
“Don’t joke around! How can we listen to the words of those nobles! They only want to make use of us, okay!” Another person angrily rebuked.
“Speaking of this, the boss has already helped us so much. Not a lot of lives had been sacrificed ever since he came, how can we do this kind of thing to him? Is this still even human?”
“Everyone should just behave like you haven’t heard anything today.”
The conversation ended like this, with everyone having different expressions. Even though they had temporarily restrained themselves from doing something, but the seeds of betrayal have already started to take root in their hearts.
“What’s going on? Are you guys discussing something?” The blonde haired young man went in, while smiling towards everyone.
“Nothing, nothing. We’re just having casual conversations.” Everyone immediately found excuses to fool him.
As a matter of fact, the behavior of these people were already very unusual, but the blonde haired young man remained completely oblivious to this, and did not realize that things would develop to such a detrimental level…… No, it would be better to say that he had never thought of doubting his companions.
Looking at this scene, Gu Wuji practically need not guess to know what he would be seeing next, that he couldn’t help but take a deep breath.
The scene then feel into darkness once more, what appeared before him, was the blonde haired young man lying on the ground. He had clearly been drugged and incapacitated, he then looked at his companions in shock, “Why?”
Even though the several of these people before him had discomfited expressions, but they had already made up their mind.
“Sorry, but, we can’t go on like this anymore. Disobeying those nobles in this island is truly very exhausting…… Everyone already suffered from injuries to some extent.”
“We will definitely go on and live well on your stead. You don’t really want to see us suffer too, right?”
Gu Wuji felt uncomfortable listening to this. These people were basically just like justifying their act in harming another person. Must that person help them at all costs just because of being a good person?
Even if he already knew that the owner of the island had a very tragic past, but he never expected that the tragicness would reach to this extent.
After listening to the discourse of his companions, the expression of the blonde haired young man quickly cooled down. He only gazed at these people coldly, and indifferently said: “Since this is your choice, I have nothing else to say. I just hope you won’t regret it.”
Several of these people had varied expressions on all their faces, but there was no turning back as they had already done such a thing. They directly handed the blonde haired young man to the noble’s people.
