Water Recovery System (Arc 3-End) - Arc 3 Chapter 10 Part 1
Arc 3 Chapter 10 Part 1
After allowing Chi Xi to be buried and put at rest, later Shen Jiayan quietly found a leeward slope and sat down. His eyes looking into the distance.
Looking at the scenery he asked, “System, what will happen if I give up my original employer’s wishes and stay here?”
“Then host, not only you will not get any points, but you will also lose your eyesight for a lifetime.” The black cat sat properly. “Lord Host, are you in love with Luo Shaoxuan?”
“Love?” Shen Jiayin unconsciously repeated, “It shouldn’t count. It’s just that, accompanying him for a lifetime might not be a bad idea.”
“Lord Host, you’d better give up this dangerous idea.” The black cat walked over anxiously, “Their lives are finite, but we are in infinite reincarnations. Once we break it, it’s eternal damnation. What’s more, if you stay here, the balance of this world will be broken and the consequences will be unimaginable.”
“So what will happen?” Shen Jiayin’s eyelashes fluttered slightly and asked.
“This world will choose to obliterate you for self-healing.” The black cat’s tail swayed, “And if you exist for one day, the balance of this world will be broken for one day. And at the same time, many things that should not exist will appear.”
Shen Jiayan’s body shook, “If I remember correctly, originally Chi Xi shouldn’t die, right? Was it because of me, so…?”
“Yes.” The black cat jumped onto Shen Jiayan’s lap and licked his hand comfortingly, “So you’d better finish your mission as soon as possible, Lord Host.”
Shen Jiayan lowered his eyelids, and the kitten-like pupils appeared as deep as a pool of spring water, “Okay, I know.”
At this moment, Lu Yingfan walked over towards Shen Jiayin’s direction, holding his Yinhen sword with his right hand hidden behind his back, “Young Master Mu, I, Lu Yingfan, am coming here today to say goodbye.”
“You are leaving?” Shen Jiayan asked in astonishment, and then his eyes were filled with strong reluctance, “Why?”
Lu Yingfan reached out and stroked Shen Jiayan’s hair, closing his eyes gently. It’s enough. To be able to see him(SJY) make such an expression in this lifetime, then everything is enough! When he opened them again, his eyes were tranquil without a ripple, “Soon you will be able to reach City B, and my destination is not there. As the saying goes, people who walk different paths can’t make plans together. So I have come to take my leave, Young Master Mu.”
Shen Jiayan’s eyebrows twisted slightly, then loosened, he bit his lower lip lightly and said, “Okay, then you have a safe journey.”
Lu Yingfan took a deep look at Shen Jiayan, as if he was trying to engrave his(SJY) face deep in his heart. Then with a resolute turn, his robe’s sleeve fluttering in the wind, he replied, “You too, take care of yourself.”
The breeze lifted Lu Yingfan’s sleeve, and Shen Jiayan suddenly caught a glimpse of his dark right arm that was concealed under his wide sleeve.
Shen Jiayin stepped forward and grabbed Lu Yingfan’s hand. The sleeve slid down his arm to reveal the swollen and blackened wound inside.
Shen Jiayan immediately understood everything, “You were scratched by that tentacle monster just now, weren’t you? You’re leaving because you’re afraid that you’ll become a zombie and put the rest of us in danger, aren’t you?”
Lu Yingfan dropped his hand and covered his arm with his sleeve, “No, Young Master Mu thinks too much.”
“It’s good if it’s just me who thinks too much, accompany me to find Yang Yuxing first.” Shen Jiayan ignored Lu Yingfan’s weak struggle and pulled him to walk towards Yang Yuxing’s direction.
Yang Yuxing studied the wound, carefully extracting a bit of the poisonous blood from Lu Yingfan’s wound and placing it into his apparatus to be analyzed, “The percentage of the virus invading the cell is at 60%, and in about half an hour, he’ll completely turn into a zombie.”
At the beginning, Shen Jiayan also wanted to complete the task and to abuse Lu Yingfan; but after spending the whole journey together and sharing the same hardship, Lu Yingfan usually took care of him everywhere and rescued him. Shen Jiayan had already given up on that task completely.
He just didn’t expect that Lu Yingfan would turn into a zombie because of him!
Shen Jiayan’s eyes were at a loss. He released his grip on Lu Yingfan’s hand and sat down on the floor, somewhat dejectedly. Why the hell did he come here, if it meant that the people who cared enough to help him, will die one after another?
Luo Shaoxuan knelt down beside Shen Jiayan, distressingly embraced him, and kissed his eyebrows, “Don’t blame yourself too much.”
Lu Yingfan handed the Yinhen Sword to Shen Jiayan, “This is the sword I’ve been used to using since I was young, it’s called Yinhen. Now that the Yinhen Sword Technique has been passed on to you, I hope you won’t dishonour it.”
Shen Jiayan cradled the sword in his arms and said solemnly, “I know.”
Lu Yingfan shallowly smiled , but there was deep regret in his eyes. Finally, he reached out and patted Luo Shaoxuan’s shoulder, “Take good care of him.”
Luo Shaoxuan hugged Shen Jiayin a little tighter, “Naturally.”
And just after Lu Yingfan had left, the position of the needle on Yang Yuxing’s apparatus slightly moved from sixty back to fifty. Then it remained still and did not move again. Unfortunately, no one in the tent noticed.
On the way to the city, everyone looked at the two empty seats and their hearts sank.
As soon as Luo Qi woke up, he felt this heavy atmosphere. He opened his mouth several times and wanted to inquire, but he dared not ask at everyone’s sorrowful expressions.
When they saw the city wall of City B, everyone felt as if a lifetime had passed. When they were coming, there were ten trucks full of people. When they finally arrived, there were only three trucks of people remaining.
Translator’s Note: I was actually planning to post this on December 1 but I decided to do it now. Anyway, I have picked up this translator hopping novel. I hope I can finish this…
