Chapter 58: The Other Side of the World
Translated by Rui of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
In Gu Ting Yu’s original world, there was a story known to all which was passed down from generation to generation.
In the Bible, the snake beguiled Eve to eat the Forbidden Fruit which resulted in her being punished by God.
The Forbidden Fruit allowed one to understand good and evil. After Adam and Eve ate the fruit, they saw a clear vision before their eyes, and from then on gradually began to realize the true nature of this world.
So in the end, was it the snake who lured out evil, or did the snake teach them to rip off the veil which concealed chaos?
Zhuo Yin was skilled at manipulating human will.
Normally, he preferred to see his prey fall into his trap on their own. Lust would control their body. It was the most basic and barefaced strategy. However, the truly frightening part of one’s lustful desire lay in the way it could subvert people’s beliefs of the world.
He saw Gu Ting Yu’s past and witnessed the darkness sealed in Gu Ting Yu’s soul. The truth was that everyone had a hidden black abyss beneath all that sunshine.
Zhuo Yin wanted to see the real Gu Ting Yu.
“So,” Zhuo Yin squinted his long and narrow phoenix eyes as he watched Gu Ting Yu softly mumble, “Don’t bore me.”
Right now, Gu Ting Yu’s skin was already flushed crimson. He was soon going to be completely immersed in a monstrous roaring flame.
Gu Ting Yu was constantly trembling. His face held an extremely contradicting expression. Vibrant trickles of blood were gradually dripping from his lip, as he was biting down on it in an attempt to suppress the pain.
“Don’t fight it… you don’t have to live for the sake of someone else…” the demonic voice resounded again. It tempted Gu Ting Yu to completely let down his guards and submit his mind and body to his instinctual desire to be drowned.
As reason and emotion clashed, Gu Ting Yu’s moral boundaries gradually started to collapse… What was right, what was wrong, what needed to be persevered, and what could be broken…
Zhuo Yin rested Gu Ting Yu’s hands on his own shoulders, “You just have to know what it is you truly want…”
The Silver Jade Vermin’s venom continually exerted its effect. The burning desire between Gu Ting Yu’s legs had long been impatiently waiting for release.
“Get lost. Ugh…” Unexpectedly, Gu Ting Yu fought back with all his might despite having clouded consciousness. He lifted his leg and kicked Zhuo Yin. Even though it was a very light kick, he successfully stopped Zhuo Yin’s movements. Zhuo Yin lifted a brow and began to reexamine the foggy-minded Gu Ting Yu.
“Ha…” Interesting. It seemed as though controlling this person’s heart wasn’t as simple as tampering with mere traditional morals.
The skies hung low, as thick dark clouds splashed across the entire sky like ink from a bottle which had been knocked over.
Water droplets as big as beans fell down across the entire land. They hit against the river surface, causing the snakes to burst into a frenzied dance. They fell on the newly nurtured life growing from the soil…
Ripping, destroying, losing control… falling was allowed…
Gu Ting Yu clearly felt a strong surge of power madly dragging him down. The deep abyss faintly hinted at a world where god and the boundaries of right and wrong did not exist.
“Be frank about it,” Zhuo Yin guided. “What do you want?”
Gu Ting Yu’s world was currently crumbling. His past perseverance seemed so feeble and futile. His world gradually became reduced to fragments along with the increasing magnitude of the nebulous heat…
He was going to suffocate.
But it wasn’t enough… far from enough…
What did he want…?
Zhuo Yin gazed at Gu Ting Yu and revealed an enthralled expression. He knew that this human was being controlled by lust. The venom of the Silver Jade Vermin wasn’t just an aphrodisiac, but it also fueled the forbidden desires of one’s heart.
“You can no longer escape.”
Let this rainfall seethe with excitement. This is merely the beginning of everything.
However, Gu Ting Yu suddenly opened his eyes!
“Uh!?” The man raised his brows as he felt an agonising pain on his shoulder.
Gu Ting Yu cried out like a caged animal. He harshly bit down on the man’s shoulder and sank his canines into the other’s flesh. He transformed his inner chaos into a direct form of attack.
“Tell me your truest inner thoughts.” Completely ignoring the piercing pain on his shoulder, the man licked Gu Ting Yu’s slender, pale neck.
“Ugh…” Grief got stuck in his throat as Gu Ting Yu regained his consciousness from being buried in sensations of agony… This was replaced by a tormenting excitement —— a sharp needle pierced through his numbed mind. He was about to drown in this rogue wave.
Let me go… He softly sobbed.
“This is your last chance. What do you want?!”
Gu Ting Yu was being lead by this damn surge of power. What was he doing… where was this force taking him…?
He took a deep breath. After having endured it for such a long time, at this moment he finally snapped.
What do I want… what can you give me?
—— Give me back my mum!!!
Give Bai Zhi Ao back to me!!!
Screw the roots of evil. It clearly didn’t have anything to do with him!!
Why was he always the one who had bear with it against his will?
Gu Ting Yu opened his empty eyes. Rain fell into them, causing an ice cold sensation of stabbing pain.
His hands which held the other man’s back weakly slid downwards, and Gu Ting Yu fainted.
Anger filled those bright yellow eyes. The human just expressed his true thoughts in that short period of awareness. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the answer he wanted to hear.
Just a little bit more… and the human would’ve submitted to his lustful desires. He was so close…
There was a pure sacred land in every person’s heart no one else could touch.
However, there was also definitely an evil corner in every person’s heart.
He very much looked forward to this game, because even a god would eventually fall.
