Chapter 287: The true meaning of the seven sins (Part 2)
“Then the last sin – lust.” Murong Qiu Shui paused for a second before raising his right fist and placing it on his chest. He looked up at the sky with a face filled with melancholy, “The mix of yin and yang is one of the most indispensable basic rules of the heaven and earth. Because a person has lust, they will take the initiative to promote the blending of yin and yang. If a person does not have lust…..Oh, human production would stop and human’s pursuit towards beauty would disappear. A person like me with an appearance that even go would envy would just be normal…..Oh! That is truly terrifying. Ai…..Actually, my lust has always been strong, after being alone for over nineteen years. How I wish that someone suited to me would fall from the skies, so I could occupy her body and soul without any hesitation…..Because I am a normal man.”
The first part was fine, but the final part…..If you are a normal man, then there really wouldn’t be any strange men in this world. Ye Tian Xie and Zuo Po Jun both secretly thought this at the same time.
“Then, beloved third brother, one side is you have a heart of lust and wish to be with a woman. The other side will be there is something wrong with your body and you do not have any lust. Come….make your decision. Let us understand you more.” Murong Qiu Shui looked at the pitiful Zuo Po Jun as he spoke.
These two choices……Are there really no other choices?
Why…..Why couldn’t he think of a third option.
Although he knew that Murong Qiu Shui was misinterpreting the true meaning of the seven sins, he could not refute it at all. There was even some logic behind it.
Zuo Po Jun was silent for a bit, not answering at all because he wanted to say he was neither……
“Bingo, beloved third brother, your silence allows me to know your answer. Men will always be shy in the end. Aiyo, lust is actually a very normal thing. It is the most mature and purest expression a man can make, so what is there to be embarrassed about? Then…..” Murong Qiu Shui counted with his fingers, “Like this, beloved third brother is guilty of arrogance, envy, wrath, sloth, greed, gluttony, and lust…..One, two, three, four, five, six, seven……Seven kind!!”
Murong Qiu Shui let out an alarmed call and his face revealed an exaggerated expression, “Seven kind…..Third brother, you’re actually guilty of seven sins and they’re all things you alone are guilty for…..You are a demon, a demon!!”
“Old fourth, you’re looking for a fight!!” Zuo Po Jun smacked his hands together. He had casually said before that a person guilty of all seven sins was a “demon”, but now Murong Qiu Shui was using it to insult him.
“Oh, oh! This is the wrath of the seven sins……How terrifying, too terrifying.” Murong Qiu Shui quickly hid behind Ye Tian Xie.
Zuo Po Jun: (╯﹏╰)b
“Ha, ha, ha, ha……” Ye Tian Xie first revealed a faint smile before breaking out in laughter. With his laughter, Zuo Po Jun also rubbed his head in embarrassment as he also laughed.
Murong Qiu Shui’s seemingly silly words that actually contained “great wisdom” had cleared up most of the worries he felt towards the “baptism of seven sins”, making his heart light up again. In this moment, he realized that these seven sins were not some kind of untouchable taboo. In reality, these were seven evils that were a part of human nature and showed itself in a human’s normal lives, but each person experienced a different degree of each sin.
“That’s right, the so called seven sins exist in everyone’s human nature. No matter how kind or how normal a person is, they will have experienced the seven sins in their lifetimes. It is like a person’s happiness, anger, sadness, and joy, if a single one was missing, then a person’s nature would not be complete.” Murong Qiu Shui said in an enlightened manner before asking, “Second brother, why do you care about these seven sins?”
“……I’m prepared to undergo all seven of these sins within the next forty nine days.” Ye Tian Xie directly said it without any hesitation.
“Ah?” Zuo Po Jun still had not recovered from being flustered by Murong Qiu Shui’s strange words and he was once again stunned by what Ye Tian Xie said.
“Oh…..Second brother, the wind was too loud and I might not have heard properly.” Murong Qiu Shui said in a serious voice while whispering in his heart: This can’t be real, right? I was just having fun distorting the facts earlier……Ou! If second brother has decided to make this decision because of my words, the beautiful but terrifying eldest sister might kill me.
Ye Tian Xie nodded as his eyes sparkled while his face revealed a serious expression, “The words I have to say next might seem impossible, but I hope you will be able to believe it and deal with it accordingly……The baptism of the seven sins brings a strong influence and the depth of the sin will be immense. I cannot imagine how deep it will be right now, so you have to make proper preparations. My mind and emotions will be at an extreme and I don’t want to hurt you guys.”
Zuo Po Jun and Murong Qiu Shui had the same expression as they listened to what Ye Tian Xie said. Their ears were listening, but it took their minds a while before it could react.
Leaving the Destiny world, it was already dusk. Sitting up from the bed, his body was still aching. He softly pulled Xiao Xi who was curled up around his arm and gently covered her with the blanket. Then with soft footsteps, he opened the door to walk out.
He had spent two days unconscious and his body was still weak……Thinking of how Xiao Xi was weak and had a body with no strength, sleeping over twenty hours a day, Ye Tian Xie suddenly thought that her condition was just like his, severely injuring one’s vitality……Moreover, it was even more serious than him. From what Guo Guo said, this condition would last at least one month and could last up to a year.
What had happened to Xiao Xi? He thought about this question from all kinds of unbelievable angles.
“Big brother, you’re awake!”
Once he walked into the living room, he heard Chen Xue’s clear and ethereal voice. The three girls were all here and when they saw him, they all revealed looks of joy.
“Big lazy bones, you’re finally up. Little sister Chen Xin, let me tell you, he’s normally lazy as well. Before I lived here, his house was as messy as a pigsty……Not even a pig would be willing to live here.” Su Fei Fei said with a giggle.
“Un…..At first it wasn’t willing, but after airing this place out a bit, it still came to live here.” Ye Tian Xie said with a calm voice.
Ran Chen Xin gave a laugh. Su Fei Fei finally reacted after two seconds and angrily stood up to say, “Damn Tian Xie, daring to insult me like this. Do you still even want to eat!”
“You’re the one that said it yourself, I’m just agreeing with what you said.” Ye TIan Xie revealed a look of innocence as he sat down beside Chen Xue. Chen Xue happily leaned against him.
“Humph! I’m not going to argue with a sick person like you. Wait until you’re better and see how I punish you…..How’s your arm, does it still hurt?” Her words were very natural, but speaking of his arm, she revealed a look of worry. She squatted down by Ye Tian Xie’s leg and touched his arm, “This bandage has been on for over two days now. Because we were afraid of waking you, we never changed your bandages over the past two days……Don’t move right now, I’ll take it off for you.”
After saying this, without Ye Tian Xie’s agreement, she picked up a pair of scissors and made a line in the bandages before peeling them apart.
“I’ll also help.”
Chen Xin was on Ye Tian Xie’s other side, helping him take off the bandages on his left arm.
Chen Xin’s movements were smoother compared to Su Fei Fei’s, so although she started after Su Fei Fei, she took off the bandage at the same time. When they took off the bandage, both girls were stunned.
On Ye Tian Xie’s arm……There were no injuries at all. The only eye catching thing were white streaks running across them.
“See, I said it was fine.” Ye Tian Xie stretched his hands before placing them behind his head. His body’s recovery ability was very shocking, with an ordinary wound closing in just a single hour. As for this kind of wound that was considered quite big, it could be healed in at most a day. So this result was not surprising to him at all.
“Tian Xie, you wouldn’t have put on these two bandages at the hospital to scare us, right?” Su Fei Fei looked up as she spoke with a voice filled with doubt.
“No, no, big brother really was injured and lost a lot of……blood.” Ran Chen Xue anxiously said from the side. Ye Tian Xie’s thirteen wounds had all been for her, so she would remember it for her entire life, never forgetting about it.
Ye Tian Xie revealed a faint smile and he lifted Chen Xue’s delicate and slender body into his legs. In a loving voice he asked, “Xue’er, is your body healthier?”
“Un!” Chen Xue forcefully nodded. Her star like eyes sparkled with a smile, “I feel like I have more strength already and I can already eat by myself…..The food elder sister Fei Fei makes is very delicious, it is the best food Xue’er has ever eaten.”
“Hee, of course.” Although the wound on Ye Tian Xie’s arms strangely disappeared, Su Fei Fei did not ask about it anymore. She proudly tapped Chen Xue’s little nose as she spoke. In these two days, the three girls had gotten along very well. Although they were all brought together by a single man, they did not fight against each other at all. This was also decided on Su Fei Fei and Chen Xin’s dispositions.
“Big brother, are you better now?” Chen Xue used her little hands to touch the white lines on his arms. Although the wounds had healed, looking at the scars that were left behind because of her, her heart was filled with pain to the point that she wanted to cry…..She knew that this was a debt that she could never repay in her life.
“Look, does it seem like there’s something with me?” Ye Tian Xie said in a comforting voice as he gently rubbed her tender wrists. After experiencing life and death together, it was clear that there would no longer be barriers between them. This was because one had bled for the other and one had cried tears for the other…..and in Chen Xue’s body, there was also his blood flowing in her veins.
“Big brother Tian Xie, I really have to thank you……I really don’t know how to thank you……” Since Ye Tian Xie appeared, Ran Chen Xin’s heart had been excited to the point that she did not know what to say the entire time. From the moment she met him, he kept helping her who could collapse at any moment……She already did not know when she could repay him for what he done, but now he had even erased the darkness that covered the lives of her and her little sister. This debt, was already far beyond a life saving debt. She really did not know what she could use to repay him for this…..
