“I… I didn’t have a choice. I was forced to…” Nan Ningxin pulled on Gu Yunjing’s sleeve pitifully. “You’re the only one who can save me now. I don’t want them to take me back. They’re too horrible.”
“You worked with them when you know they’re horrible?” Gu Yunjing kicked her away. “Do you think I need a useless chess piece?”
He unleashed a pillar of dazzling light that enveloped Nan Ningxin. The power in it froze Nan Ningxin, and it felt like someone was splitting her head apart.
“Ouch! It hurts! Shao Di, what are you doing?” Nan Ningxin cried.
“Taking back what doesn’t belong to you.”
He didn’t care about Nan Ningxin, but that part of Gu Bailu’s soul had to be returned to him.
“No… Don’t take it away. Prince Zi will never talk to me again without that… Please don’t…” Nan Ningxin cried humbly.
“Prince Zi won’t talk to you even if you have it. Your role ends here.” Gu Yunjing seized a crystal ball that flew out of Nan Ningxin’s head.
“No… no…” Nan Ningxin shrieked and passed out.
Without looking at her, Gu Yunjing entered his palace with the partial soul.
He opened his hand, and the partial soul glowed in the air.
Inside the ball was Gu Bailu’s memories with Feng Qingtian. There was both sweetness and devastation.
Nan Ningxin knew so much about the past events all because of this.
However, even though she had the partial soul, she still couldn’t find a way into Feng Qingtian’s heart.
Feng Qingtian’s heart could see the right person, no matter how many lives had passed and how much her face had changed.
Gu Yunjing sighed and said, “I’ve lost.”
He made all kinds of plans, but those two were still meant for each other.
“Master, you haven’t lost. She hasn’t fallen in love with him yet, has she?” The outline of a beautiful woman appeared in a haze.
“She hasn’t? Then why would she let him touch her and sleep with her? You don’t know her. She wouldn’t let anyone she dislikes get close to her. She avoided me when I accidentally touched her.”
It was only out of self-defense that she had never admitted that she loved Feng Qingtian, and Gu Yunjing intended to keep it that way.
“Do you want to win, master? There are plenty of ways to win, but you never made up your mind about it.”
The master was too into that woman to take resolute action, and simply let things go her way.
Then, how could he defeat Prince Zi?
Gu Yunjing sat down on the bed and looked at the ball of memories floating above him. “Now, I don’t care about victory any longer. Ying Jue, you have no idea how much I love them…”
Ying Jue said pitifully, “My lord, why?”
“Because I love them, I can’t let them be together. I can’t.”
Gu Yunjing sat up and grabbed the ball. “Ying Jue, it’s time for you to take action.”
“Just give me an order, master. I’m ready.”
