Chapter 257: Heavenly Sun City (Part 2)
Year 2210, July 28th. The Thursday sky is covered in clouds and the sun’s warmth cannot be felt.
Every time I wake up from a dream, I can feel my body becoming weaker. I know that this is not a mistake because it’s been increasingly harder for me to wake up time after time these few days. I know that I am getting closer and closer to dying.
It’s about to end…..My broken life that has long been depleted…..
How long can I even still last……
From the age of nine, the god of death had already arrived by my side. In that sleep, I felt that I was getting further and further away from this world……While I was struggling and crying, I use all my strength to wake up……Finally, I woke up. On that day, I woke up much later than usual. After waking up, my body was completely devoid of any strength, not even being able to move a pinky. However, when I saw my elder sister’s tearful eyes suddenly being filled with joy, I felt that it was a beautiful thing to be alive.
If I had stayed silent that day, not struggling at all, everything would have ended. It was also from that day on, that the god of death beckoned to me everyday and I had to painfully struggle every day just to survive. Day after day, I became used to it…..However, the god of death is slowly getting closer and I don’t know how much strength I have left to struggle with.
If I didn’t have elder sister, I would have chosen to be led away in my dream, sleeping forever without any pain. Elder sister said that people will go to heaven after they die. There is no pain, no lies, and no bad people there. Mother and father are silently looking down on us from heaven……
In this world, is there really such a beautiful place like heaven?
However, no matter how beautiful heaven was, it could not compare to elder sister’s heartfelt smile.
For elder sister, I was willing to go through the tortures of hell and ignored the summons of heaven.
Because, elder sister is my only reason for living…..
Then before the god of death takes me away, can I see my elder sister enter a happy home? Like that, I can smile as my body breaks and I go to heaven to find mother and father. Then I will watch down from the heavens, smiling as I watch my elder sister’s happiness.
A home for elder sister……
Elder sister was currently in that mysterious game called «Destiny». Destiny…..Everyone had their own destiny. As for my destiny, it is filled with pain and frustrations, but I don’t mind or hate it…..because I have elder sister. If I could let elder sister be happy, then I would be filled with gratitude towards the heavens.
Yesterday afternoon, elder sister was a little restless when she came out of the game. I asked elder sister and she revealed a familiar smile, but she said nothing. At night, when I talked to elder sister, from the unconscious tone of voice, I understand why my elder sister was feeling a little unhappy……It was because when elder sister said, “Big brother has been away for the past two days and I haven’t seen him at all”, her smile became a bit smaller, but it was clear that she was sad.
Although I didn’t have any qualifications in love, my heart told me that elder sister must have fallen in love with big brother, but she didn’t know about it yet. This was because for me, elder sister had never dated anyone…..No, it should be because there were no men that were worthy of her and no men that could make her fall in love.
But this man had suddenly appeared.
Was this the final bit of pity the heavens were showing me?
To have the most gentle and beautiful elder sister fall in love with him so quickly, he must be a very outstanding and talented man that treated elder sister very well.
He was also always helping elder sister. Elder sister said that he had given her a lot of help and fought with a lot of people to protect her, also giving her encouragement so she could finally be confident…..I still remember that from the first day elder sister mentioned him, the smile on her face became better every day.
I really am grateful to this great big brother…..I also want to see him once and talk to him about a lot of things.
If he could love elder sister just like she loved him and take care of her forever, giving her a happy home, then that would be the best ending……
This is my final…..and biggest hope. I will support my elder sister with all my might, hoping that she will find happiness one day. That way, I can go to heaven with a smile on my face.
Chen Xue had written an entire two pages in her diary. Her world was very simple, only having two people…..One being herself and the other being her elder sister.
She felt a strong tiredness wash over her again. She silently watched her elder sister lying down beside her before finally being unable to resist this sleepy feeling. When she closed her eyes, her consciousness disappeared.
In this world, was there really a heaven? As she fell asleep, this was the final thought she had.
She was now like a doll carved from ice, so fragile that it would break from a single touch.
The heat from Heavenly Sun City was not a kind of stuffy feeling, but rather a burning heat that no one was willing to endure. It was like there was a giant pile of fire burning in front of him, currently baking his body.
It was also because of this climate that Heavenly Sun City had much less people compared to Heavenly Stellar City. There weren’t as many NPCs walking around on the streets in comparison. It could be imagined that if players were sent to Heavenly Sun City as their first city, how many people would run away from here.
There was no doubt that Ye Tian Xie was the first person to reach Heavenly Sun City…..but it was a pity that there was no reward.
“Hello little brother, can I ask where the City Lord’s Palace is?” Ye Tian Xie found a five-six year old child and asked with a gentle look on his face.
“Father said that I can’t talk to strangers.” The little boy quickly ran off.
Ye Tian Xie: “……”
“Hello, little sister. Can I ask you where the City Lord’s Palace is?”
“Father said that I can’t talk to strangers.” The little girl also quickly ran off.
Ye Tian Xie: “……”
“Mother said that I can’t talk to strangers.” The uncle also ran off.
Ye Tian Xie: “I……”
“What? Aunty? Look clear, this old lady is only eighteen years old! You really are rude.”
Ye Tian Xie was stunned. He just stared at this fat faced, round bodied, husky voiced, “eighteen year old” middle aged woman with a face full of wrinkles walk away.
…….What kind of situation did Heavenly Sun City have?!
Didn’t he have a high thirty two charm value!! Did the people of Heavenly Sun City not care about charm at all?
“Hello elder sister, can you tell me how to get to the City Lord’s Palace?”
The middle aged woman being called elder sister’s face lit up like a flower. With a notification saying, “Aunt Meng’s favorability has increased by 10”, she pointed to the direction in front of Ye Tian Xie and said, “Yo, did you come from the outside? It’s rare to see a polite young man like you……Keep walking down this road and then you’ll see a tall bell tower. Take a right there and you’ll see a building with a red roof and that is the City Lord’s Palace.”
“Oh……Thank you.” Ye Tian Xie waved his hand and went off in that direction.
“Remember to come to family’s steamed buns shop in the future, I will give you a 20% discount.” Aunt Meng’s friendly voice came from behind him.
Speaking was considered an art, regardless of what world one was in. This was especially the case with women.
Following the aunty’s directions, Ye Tian Xie quickly arrived at the City Lord’s Palace. It was built just like the Heavenly Stellar City Lord’s Palace, but this place was fire red, matching the hot atmosphere of this place.
“Hello, I’m someone from Heavenly Stellar City with an important matter that I have to see the City Lord about…..This is the introduction from the Heavenly Stellar City Lord, I’ll have to trouble you to give it to your city lord.” Ye Tian Xie took out the introduction letter given to him by the Heavenly Stellar City Lord.
The Heavenly Sun City Lord Palace’s Guard looked at him with a questioning gaze, being surprised that he was from Heavenly Stellar City. They had already obtained the news that otherworlders had arrived on the Lost Continent and are currently situated in Heavenly Stellar City. If they wanted to come to Heavenly Sun City, it would take at least another half a year.
The guard quickly went in with the introduction letter and quickly came back. He moved out of the way and said, “Guest that comes from afar, Sir City Lord is waiting for you in his study.”
These thick walls could not separate one from the insufferable heat outside. Staying in this environment for a long time, Ye Tian Xie felt that it was hard to breath. When he saw the Heavenly Sun City Lord, he found that he was holding a palm leaf fan. This Heavenly Sun City Lord looked like a serious and loving middle aged man. With an unruly face that was covered in a large beard, his head was shaped like a copper bell and his eyes were wide open. When Ye Tian Xie saw him, he thought that he had went back into the Three Kingdom’s era and had met Zhang Fei.
“You are the brat from Heavenly Stellar City…..Tell father, what did the Heavenly Stellar City Lord ask you to tell me?” The Heavenly Sun City Lord turned to look at Ye Tian Xie and that giant voice was like thunder that almost made Ye Tian Xie deaf.
Were people’s temperaments different here because of the climate?
Feeling like he didn’t want to stay long, Ye Tian Xie quickly took out the letter and gave it to the Heavenly Sun City Lord, not explaining anything. In front of this kind of person, it was better to say as little as possible.
The Heavenly Sun City Lord looked at the letter and didn’t even look at the seal. Moving his finger, a “chi…..” sound was heard as a flame appeared on his hand, burning the envelope away. The letter inside was completely fine, not showing a trace of being burnt at all.
It seems like he was an expert, an expert in using flames.
Sitting down in a bold manner, the Heavenly Sun City Lord looked down with his large eyes, quickly glancing over it at first……He had only looked over two lines before suddenly standing up and his large eyes became even wider as he tightly gripped the letter. He read it through once, then read it again, and read it one more time…..then he finally gave a large roar, “Fuck!! That turtle born and rabbit raised Dark Ghost King that should be killed was actually hiding this close to my Heavenly Sun City!!!!”
