It was as if a door shut for a long time had opened in Saburo Nagato’s heart. He growled at the dark shadow in the room.
“Me? Probably to you, I am just an illusion.”
In front of Saburo Nagato, a man dressed as a samurai but much younger than him walked out of the corner of the room. The samurai met his gaze. He didn’t know why he couldn’t see the samurai in the eye. He subconsciously looked away and immediately retreated. The appearance of this guy was too abnormal!
No, this samurai already knows my purpose for coming here! A trace of murderous intent suddenly buds in Saburo Nagato’s heart. But this killing intent disappeared in an instant.
Perhaps this is the end of my sins.
“You want to die, right?”
“What did you say?” Saburo Nagato met the mysterious samurai’s gaze again and said in a deep voice, “Who are you!?”
“You don’t dare to face Haru Narukami, even if you know she is trapped under the dungeon of Nagato’s house.”
“Who are you!?” Saburo Nagato was crazy for an instant, rushed forward, and directly grasped the collar of this mysterious samurai with both hands. His eyes were ferocious, like a wounded wolf hiding in a dark cave and licking his wounds.
“Saburo Nagato, you dare not face Haru Narukami, you dare not fight Nagato Munechika, and even the reason why you returned to Unripe Rice Village is not to come back to recover your injury. The real reason is that you are a deserter on the battlefield.”
Saburo Nagato’s breathing was violent like sea tides, while this mysterious samurai was like a breeze on the grassland.
“I can give you a chance to end it all. Would you want it?”
“Chance…” Saburo Nagato stopped suddenly and took two steps back. He felt pale and weak, only to say with a wry smile, “You don’t know. You don’t know how terrifying my brother is. He is powerful! He doesn’t look like a human at all!”
“Because Nagato Munechika can’t be considered a human in the first place.”
“What?” Saburo Nagato was taken aback.
But when Saburao Nagato saw this mysterious samurai smile, it was the kind of scholastic smile. Saburo Nagato found it incredible because this mysterious samurai was twenty-seven years old, but this smile looked like a young man.
“My name is Mo Xiaofei. How about you?”
“Saburo… Saburo Nagato…” He answered softly.
Mo Xiaofei nodded, “Saburo Nagato, would you like to purge the nightmare of Unripe Rice Village with me?”
Saburo Nagato smiled bitterly, “Purge? Do you know what it means behind this? It’s impossible for me.”
Mo Xiaofei said, “You are afraid that once this curse scam is known to the villagers, the Nagato family will no longer be able to gain a foothold in this place, right? Committing such a crime will also tarnish the Nagato family’s glory. I think Nagato Munechika should have used this kind of reason to restrain you? But, I don’t think this is the main reason.”
“You know everything!” Saburo Nagato had horror painted on his face, feeling that everything about him was seen through. There was no secret in front of this mysterious samurai at all.
“It’s not important. The important thing is – are you willing to do everything with me to wipe out this nightmare?” Mo Xiaofei sent out the invitation again.
“What do you want to do?” Saburo Nagato’s heart suddenly thumped.
This feels so real. If I didn’t know that everything in front of me was just a memory that the little girl couldn’t resolve, I would regard these as reality.
Mo Xiaofei sighed slightly, “Listen, I don’t want to reveal this scam because no one can bear it. Those innocent girls and those who are full of expectations when they grow up will be shattered by reality. This reality is too cruel. I don’t even know how long it takes to heal a wound like this.”
“It’s not to tear it down.” Mo Xiaofei whispered, “If you are willing to join, we need to heal it. Since there is this curse, we just need to get rid of this curse.”
Mo Xiaofei said, looking at the two women bravely using pills in this room, “Just wait quietly for the arrival of tomorrow. Everything will be better.”
Saburo Nagato was uncertain. He couldn’t find out the origin of the other party, but he found that this might be the best solution after careful consideration. The villagers did not need to know the reality, but they could be reborn and free from the clutches of Nagato Munechika.
“You will face my brother’s wraith. You don’t know how powerful he is.” Saburo Nagato was still a little timid at last.
“I think I can deal with him.” Mo Xiaofei shook his head suddenly, “Don’t talk about him. I asked you for the last time, are you willing or unwilling? Do you want to continue to be a deserted soldier, or do you get the courage to go to that dungeon to apologize in front of the woman you once loved so much? By the way, I can let you know some additional info.”
“What else?” Saburo Nagato asked subconsciously.
Mo Xiaofei said calmly, “I feel no burden in killing you now because I recently learned the truth. If I can save more people by sacrificing a few, it will be a good deal.”
In fact, heroes don’t need to be merciful. I should throw away the kindness in my past.
Then, I need to become strong to prevent tragedy from appearing. From crawling forward to firm footsteps, even if the road ahead is filled with thorns, I will still take every step forward.
Looking at Saburo Nagato, whose lips moved slightly, Mo Xiaofei took a deep breath and thundered, “Saburo Nagato, I dare you to use the three-foot-long katana and cut off the sins of the Nagato family!”
Saburo Nagato instinctively pulled out the katana from his waist and then quickly cut a wound on his wrist, letting blood flow down, “Suddenly, I don’t want to be drunk.”
