The broken blade was capable of hurting. What’s more? The blade was under Mo Xiaofei’s “gravity.” But Saburo Nagato didn’t know it. He noticed that the blade was inserted into Nagato Munechika’s back, but it was not through his strength.
Warm blood spattered out and stained Saburo Nagato’s face. He stopped, keeping this posture, and motionless.
Saburo Nagato had been in the army for a few years and learned many killing techniques in the military. The blade penetrated Nagato Munechika’s heart directly from the back. Not only that, but Saburo Nagato also stirred the blade vigorously and twisted Nagato Munechika’s heart.
“You incompetent man. It is impossible for you to kill me.”
Nagato Munechika’s hand lifted, and it was quickly pressed down again, and finally, there was no movement. It was just that his eyes were wide open, seemingly unreconciled.
What Nagato Munechika wanted to say in the end, Saburo Nagato didn’t even have to listen to. He already knew. He stretched out his hand and touched the blood on his face, bewildered, “I killed him. Have I really killed my brother?”
“Yes, you successfully killed him.” Mo Xiaofei said calmly, “This guy who dominates your Nagato family and makes you live in pain. Saburo Nagato, you freed the Nagato family from Nagato Munechika’s hands. “
Saburo Nagato was silent for a long time and finally shook his head, “No matter what, I am already a sinner who kills my brother. There is no way to be freed from the sin in my body.”
At this time, Mo Xiaofei suddenly walked to Nagato Munechika’s side and took Nagato Munechika’s body. Saburo Nagato frowned and said, “What do you want to do!?”
“The fact that Nagato Munechika is dead cannot be exposed for the time being.” Mo Xiaofei said sternly, “Or do you think that only the death of Nagato Munechika can completely resolve the Unripe Rice Village’s curse?”
Saburo Nagato’s face was pale, not knowing whether it was pale after the murder or the pain of facing this curse, “I am also an accomplice of this curse. What do you want me to do?”
“Let those who know this secret keep this secret forever.” Mo Xiaofei took a deep breath and said, “Only this secret will never be resolved. The curse of Unripe Rice Village can be regarded as lifted. The woman of Unripe Rice Village will have the courage to live. Saburo Nagato, let this dirty curse be buried under your Nagato mansion forever.”
Saburo Nagato was taken aback and finally sighed. He understood the samurai’s intention.
The secret was not revealed unless he was dead. In the Nagato family, apart from the dead Nagato Munechika himself, only one other person knew it. That person was Shinji Nagato.
“I am already guilty of killing my brother.” Saburo Nagato looked at Mo Xiaofei and said in a low volume, “I don’t care about one more charge of killing my nephew.”
Mo Xiaofei didn’t say anything. Whether he committed the kill or let Saburo Nagato do it, the nature was the same. However, after experiencing such a long time in Unripe Rice Village, some of his thoughts had changed.
Mo Xiaofei was not sure whether such a change was good or bad. He just understood that there was no perfect in this world. If there was a defect, someone must be responsible for this part.
He began to agree with this saying and empathize with it.
The reason why you can’t see the darkness is simply that someone shielded you in front of the darkness.
“I’ll take care of Nagato Munechika’s corpse.” Mo Xiaofei said calmly, “You take care of Nagato’s affairs. I believe you are still sober if you don’t get in touch with wine.”
With that said, Mo Xiaofei lifted Nagato Munechika’s corpse, skillfully lowered the mechanism leading to the dungeon, and walked directly into it.
Watching this scene, Saburo Nagato’s eyes flashed with doubts. Why is this mysterious guy so familiar with Nagato’s house and Unripe Rice Village?
But, he had no time to think about it further. Saburo Nagato took a deep breath, wiped the blood with a cloth, and turned away.
Mo Xiaofei carried Nagato Munechika’s corpse until he reached the end of a passage under the dungeon and stopped.
At this time, Nagato Munechika’s body underwent a strange change. His flesh began to crack. In addition, some squirming entities seemed to want to get out of Nagato Munechika’s body.
“What a tenacious vitality. No wonder the fox demon beast’s heart survived after so many years.” Mo Xiaofei shook his head, “It’s a pity that all of this has long gone. But, no matter how tenacious your vitality is, disappear along with Chizuko Nagato’s nightmare.”
Together with Nagato Munechika’s corpse, these squirming flesh were directly turned into a mass of flesh. Mo Xiaofei’s face was a little pale at this time.
He would never think of such cruel means in the past. But since he planned to be the one who stood in front of the darkness, he got to make himself stronger.
As long as my heart remains unchanged, these are nothing.
Finally, after Mo Xiaofei dealt with Nagato Munechika’s corpse, he directly opened the door to the fox demon beast’s heart that the Nagato family kept in captivity.
Everything in the stone chamber was the same as when he arrived with Windchaser last time. The only difference was that there was no muse being swallowed this time.
When he walked to the square pool where the black muddy substance occupied, Mo Xiaofei extended his palm. In the square pool, a vast but still beating heart slowly flew out.
The heart was detonated in an instant, turning into a large mass of flesh. Mo Xiaofei watched these flesh fall to the ground and finally lost its vitality. He looked at this place built by the Nagato family for generations and collapsed the entrance mechanism completely.
“I hope Saburo Nagato can succeed.” Mo Xiaofei muttered to himself.
He didn’t leave the dungeon right away. It was not difficult to dispense medicine to the women in Unripe Rice Village. He walked towards the place where Haru Narukami was imprisoned. Mo Xiaofei felt that he had to take another look at this tragic woman.
I don’t know whether this time will trigger the loop reset condition again and let everything go back to the beginning.

Not knowing why, when Miki read this, she smiled slightly. It was a smile that came from the heart bottom, but when she realized that she was laughing, Miki immediately closed the book in her hand, “Stop influencing me!”
She threw it to the ground hard. She opened her palms, and the demon beast fox fire emerged. After contemplating, Miki squatted down and picked up the book in the end.
This time, she did not continue to read it but frowned. She then let out a sneer, “As expected of Master Eric’s favorite guy, he did so many things without me realizing.”
Miki’s face suddenly became ugly. She understood that she was somewhat relaxed about managing all the nightmares in her after reading the book.
