The Golden Finger Encyclopedia - Chapter 1
Cong Sheng leaned against the wall. His eyes faint, his gaze scattered, and he didn’t know where to go. The cigarettes between his left fingers lit up a thin haze. The faint smile at the corners of the mouth was a bit mocking, a bit relieved, and a bit happy.
Cong Sheng pinched the half-burnt cigarettes that blew up a thin haze. He raised his arms and flicked his hair back that was hanging over his eyes with his fingers. The slightly open door couldn’t block the sound of a fierce quarrel from inside.
The half-dangling eyes flashed quickly.
When he lifted it again, it was calm, and even the mocking expression on his face disappeared, replaced by worry and eagerness.
He was not at all the same person from the sharp-edged man before, and his temperament differed from the arrogant one too. His whole body was exuding pleasant aura like a spring breeze.
“You say, whose kid is that bitch? Yes! That’s great! Bai Ru, I really didn’t realize that I had gone all over the world and capsized on your ditch”.
“Brother Tian, what are you doing?… How did it become like this? Such a terrible person is not my Tian Ge, and my Tian Ge will not treat me like this. I still remember the one I just rescued from the alley that year…”.
“Dad, Auntie Bai, what happened? Tell me something. Dad, I just saw Chenchen crying and running out. It’s not safe to be outside this late. It won’t be good if anything happens. Chenchen is still young. He has always been a good boy. Dad, don’t you say that he is the most like you, never causes trouble, smart and obedient.”
Cong Sheng barged into the house, interrupted the woman’s words. Those words would, although over ten years old but could still arouse Cong Haitian’s love for her. The matter had reached this point. He really did not intend to make any accidents.
These words made Cong Haitian, who was just about to ease his expression, become even angrier. He looked sullenly at the well-maintained woman in front of her eyes. She looked less than 30 years old and still had teardrops on her face like lotus flowers after the rain. He raised his hand and threw a document onto the woman’s face in astonishment.
Bai Ru’s eyes widened in disbelief.
Is the man with an indifferent expression in front of him really the husband who obeys his words and is tender and sweet?
When he looked at her, no matter how angry he was, the man would immediately extinguish his anger and coax her softly, buying a bunch of clothes and jewelry to get her forgiveness.
But this time, it was obvious that he had wronged her. Chenchen was obviously the crystallization of love between herself and him. But he actually scolded her and said Chenchen was not his child.
She decided that she would have a cold war with him for a week this time, and she would not forgive him until he transferred the shares of the company’s heir to Chenchen.
“Are you going to divorce me?”
Bai Ru’s tears stopped strangely. Her expression became much calmer.
“Why Chenchen is really your child, and that identification report is fake. Brother Tian, would you rather believe in a cold document than in me who has been with you for almost 20 years? I love you so much. How can you doubt me, how can you doubt my love for you?”
She knew him and also knew what words could affect him. The Bai family belonged to Chen’er. The mother and son had worked hard for so many years, and they were about to win. Haitian had already said that he would make a will in a few days.
Who knew such a thing would happen?
She worked hard for so many years to make the man in front of her fall in love with her and also designed his ex-wife to die and him to give up his ex-wife’s son. She had been Mrs. Cong for so many years, enjoying the luxury and splendor of the upper class. In this life, she was truly a personal winner, from a daughter of a small family to a wife of a wealthy family.
Bai Ru’s head, which had not been used for a long time, couldn’t regain its senses. She stared at her completely strange husband in a daze.
“Aunt Bai, don’t worry. Although that report was made by the most authoritative organization abroad, it might be really wrong. There are no accurate machines in this world.” Cong Sheng sneered inwardly at the farce in front of him. But there was worried expression on his face, he persuaded her gently.
“By the way, Dad, I’m in a hurry.”
“What’s the matter?” Although Cong Haitian didn’t like his eldest son, he also knew his eldest son’s character. He wouldn’t look for him if it was not important.
“I don’t know who is spreading the news on the Internet that it is the youngest son of the Cong Group who is not from the Cong family. Saying you…” As he said, Cong Sheng seemed to be unsure of how to continue. He wanted to speak but stopped, a face full of embarrassment.
Looking at Cong Sheng’s expression, Cong Haitian had a bad feeling, and then…
“It is said that the Cong clan’s boss raised someone else’s son for over ten years. He didn’t know either that he had been wearing a green hat. He seems to be a fool. The company’s stock also fluctuated a lot because of this incident. Uncle Li asked me to discuss with you how to deal with this matter.”
The sound made Cong Sheng feel as if he had drunk an iced drink in summer, and he felt refreshed.
This is the beginning.
Cong Sheng weakened his existence and faded out the vision of the two without a trace. He stood in the room’s corner and continued to look at everything in front of him.
Those pair of scumbags in front of him, were tearing and scolding each other. They were bright and beautiful, just like the people in the market.
He couldn’t help but think of his mother, who was no longer there. She must have seen this scene and would be happy too.
Three months later, the urban cemetery-
“… Cong Haitian is in a vegetative state now, hehe, he can only sleep in the second half of his life. However, I am a good son of filial piety. I placed him in the best nursing home. I also hired a senior nurse to take care of him. He is an old acquaintance of her, and he is also very happy to have someone to speak with. He thinks he bankrupted his father’s company, and now his wife will take good care of him. He will come to accompany you soon so don’t worry about being lonely.”
“As for Bai Ru, who has been bothering us, mother and son, for many years, found her favorite ‘job’. Unfortunately, she is now very old and I am not sure whether her business is good. If it’s not good, I can still help. I can hire some people to take care of her business. Presumably with some special hobbies or those who don’t care about her shabby old skin. The face cannot, but the body can still make do. After all, she does not have the qualifications and power to refuse the guests, and there is a drug addict son to raise.”
“Oh, mom, do you know? Cong Bai Chen is not a good student, he is addicted. As a result, he was filmed and broadcasted on the Internet. Now he doesn’t dare to go out. But there is another reason he can’t go out. Because he was tied up at home by Bai Ru. Who told him to be unlucky? He didn’t say that he was photographed, and he was also injected with drugs. Hehe, his luck is terrible, what do you think?”
“Okay, okay, I know I can’t hide from you. These are what I asked people to do. Well, do you think it’s too bad for your son to do this? But your son can’t help it. Cong Haitian married you for profit. He betrayed you again after marriage and made a little mistress, not to mention it, but he still grandiosely took her and her 5-year-old son into the hall when you were eight months old pregnant. That Bai Ru’s son pushed you down the stairs. As a result, younger brother and you… But in the end, Bai Ru shed a few tears, and Bai Chen sniffed a few times, and the matter was over. When I came home from school, they even lied to me that you accidentally fell. But they never dreamed of it. Everything was seen by me. I endured that mother and son for so many years and finally avenged you. Are you okay with brother over there now? I miss you so much. I’m so tired these years, now the matter is over and I want to travel around the world. The Cong’s business is sold by me, I donated half of the money, and the rest is enough for my remaining life. Don’t worry, I will come to see you again.”
As he left, a gust of breeze swept Cong Sheng’s clothes with shallow tips, which seemed to soothe or bid farewell. Cong Sheng couldn’t help but stop and look back again, then walked away with a small smile.
Who could believe that when he walked, he would enter a different space?
Cong Sheng didn’t know if anyone else had this experience. He walked down the steps of the cemetery. As a result, he usually walked down the steps in a minute, but today it made him walk for an unknown number of hours without seeing the end. If it hadn’t been for him to know that he was not dreaming, he would really pinch himself to confirm.
“Yes, you didn’t dream, all of this is true.”
Cong Sheng silently looked at a handsome man in cyan clothes in front of his eyes. His thigh-length hairs were still. Cong Sheng was thinking about where this white strewn place was. The man in front of him who had been fluttering with immortality finally spoke first.
“So?” Cong Sheng asked calmly. His face was indifferent, not at all surprised by the current bizarre scene.
“As expected…” The man looked at Cong Sheng and exclaimed. The last words in the sentence disappeared, making people feel the urge to ask about the end of the sentence.
But Cong Sheng was very calm, still standing in a leisurely posture, with relaxed expressions in his eyes, as if he was not anxious at all.
“Well, there is not much time. To make a long story short.” The man seemed helpless, sighed lightly, and told everything slowly.
“You were originally the God of the Nine Songs of the Divine Realm. You were exiled to the human world because you violated the divine law. When you went to the immortal platform, you went to the wrong interface. Originally, you were going to another sub-plane, and then slowly reincarnate in that plane, re-experience and comprehend, and then master the rules of that plane, and finally return to the realm of the gods.”
“God? It turns out that it exists.” After listening to the brief ins and outs of the man, Cong Sheng raised his eyebrows lightly. He didn’t ask such things as what was wrong with the God of nine songs, nor did he ask why a God would be exiled in the wrong place. He knew that even if he asked, the other party would not say it.
“You will understand some things later.” The man seemed to understand what Cong Sheng was thinking and said softly.
But this feeling of being spied on was a bit uncomfortable for Cong Sheng.
Can immortals see through people’s thoughts?
“I don’t have this ability, but I’ve lived a long time, and it’s easy to guess what others think.” The man smiled.
Cong Sheng was unimpressed, looking at the opposite man. He was not in a hurry.
“The plane you are going to is newly formed. The newly formed rules are still fragile and imperfect. No one has been to that plane yet. After you understand the new rules, you can master that plane. It will also belong to you. Those planes are made of many novels. A novel forms a world by itself, and countless novels form a plane.”
“Can a novel evolve into a world?”
“Yes. The ideas of the creator and readers let them form a self-contained space and it slowly evolves into a world. There are some unreasonable places in the novel and they will gradually make up for it on their own. So when you encounter something strange, as the saying goes, don’t be surprised at the ‘brain-disabled’ place. After all, it’s a new world, and it’s not complete yet, and there will always be omissions.”
“Of course, you will not go alone. Your friend from the God Realm has prepared some ‘clearance guides’ for you, well, to say. Some things in the world are very interesting.” The man blinked pretentiously.
Then, with a wave of his sleeves, a huge roulette-like thing appeared in front of Cong Sheng.
This roulette-like thing was about the size of a standing double bed. It was round and had some shallow gold lines scripted on it. It looked exquisite and mysterious.
“Every time you end a world, you will come to this place. As long as you put your hand on this roulette wheel, a card the size of a playing card will appear sealed with a helpful ‘golden finger’ and the content of the novel world. With these, your ’journey’ will be much easier.”
“Do you have any questions? I may not appear again in the future. Everything depends on you.”
“No more “Cong Sheng really had nothing to ask. He originally planned to travel, but now it was just a different place, and it was much more interesting. Besides, there was still a prize as big as the “becoming a God” at the end. He was already satisfied. Even if there was any conspiracy in all of this, he couldn’t care about it. After all, he was just a mortal.
“Then, as long as you put your hand on it, you can start, I wish you a happy journey.”
Cong Sheng stretched out his hand to the white roulette without hesitation and began his strange and long journey.
