The Slag Gong Wants to Kill Me - Epilogue (7)
Why are dogs abandoned?
It can’t understand what the problem is, it only knows that it has apparently done something wrong because the master was angry. And even then, it will only tuck its tail and beg for mercy like a dog.
Boring. The master stated with a smile.
The dog can only whine, like the sorrowful weep of humans, as it watched the master’s distant figure.
“Opportunities. They have to be strived for. And there is a price to be paid to have fate’s blessing.” The master ultimately stated. “Next time, if we meet again, I will give you a chance.”
Great. It thought at the final moment. —–《The Master and the dog》
PS: If you still can’t understand it, go jump off a river, Ji Qu.
PSS: What are we talking about when we talk about love.
Ji Qu moved the mouse to encircle the line of words. He knew that this reminder had been set by the poster so that only he can see it.
What are we talking about when we talk about love? He thought. It could be talking about the snows of the Himalayan mountains, talking about the perpetual snow in California, and even talking about the Sistine’s Chapels’ 《Genesis》.
We are talking about the limits of love.
“It’s not so much about measure but about the price.” Someone in his memories seems to have said something like this. “–All things have their fundamental values and attributes. Just like the price of a painting inside the Louvre is worth hundred folds more than the paintings of the vagrant painters beside the Rhine river, the value of love is different for each person.”
“However, the price changes with time.” That person stated, “But I don’t believe in time. It doesn’t really matter much.”
No, Ji Qu thought. Time matters. Patience and perseverance of the most precious virtues of humans. Only these two things can change his humble and hopeless love.
He seemed to have remembered him.
If so, we should go to the appointed location—the villa where it all happened.
The somber moonlight spilt through the window. The bright white light illuminated half of Shen Yizhou’s face, the other half was shrouded in darkness but he still especially beautiful. Just like an amalgamation of an angel and a devil. Just like the disparity between the abyss and the radiance.
He leaned against the window, cane in hand.
“Remember?” he softly asked.
“En. The hypnosis was lifted.” Ji Qu replied. “I remember everything. Therefore, you should give me the chance to pursue you.”
Three years ago, after the trial, his heart was filled with joy at the hope that Shen Yizhou’s eyes will finally fall upon himself. But in the end, he was still ignored.
He realized that this was probably because he knew too much. But then what? This chance depends on his ability to strive for it, he thought. So, he made an agreement with Shen Yizhou. If after three years of without knowing anything, he still willingly fell in love, Shen Yizhou would give him a chance.
Shen Yizhou stated with a soft smile: “Ah…If so”
“Then I’ll give you a chance.”
Ji Qu heard the sound of a pistol being loaded. He found that Shen Yizhou’s cane turned into a gun after it was opened.
At that moment, he felt no fear, rather it was joy. Joy at the thought of the man’s legs being uninjured, and therefore not in any way of being painful.
