Chapter 497 – The Family Of Three Part 1

    Chapter 497- The Family Of Three Part 1

    Zi Qian Jing hugged the woman in his embrace tightly. He wanted to relieve all of the grief that had built up over the years.

    "It has been a thousand years. Mother, I have waited for you for a thousand years. I went to the Central Academy to look for you. But when I did, I didn't know how to make you acknowledge my identity. I was afraid that you wouldn't want to acknowledge me or maybe you wouldn't even believe me. However, I really missed you..."

    His kind of missing was one that dug deep into his bones.

    Mu Ru Yue's body stiffened abruptly as she sized the youth up before her with a trace of doubt in her eyes.

    "Jing Er, you are that little fellow sealed by Nangong Zi Feng?"

    Zi Qian Jing nodded profusely. A thin layer of tears could be seen in his grieving eyes. "My limbs were amputated by Zi Feng to make use of me to threaten father and mother. Following that, she sealed me in a dimension where time froze. It was aunt that saved me after that and even re-connected my limbs."

    Nobody would be able to understand the pain he had felt from having his limbs re-connected1.

    But he was willing to endure that pain in order to not see the hurt in his parents' eyes and he even wanted the ability to protect them...

    A slight change in Mu Ru Yue's expression was seen.  She focused and looked at the youth before her. She raised her hand to gently rub the handsome face before her as tears started to fog her vision.

    So, the person that she had always been looking for was by her side the entire time. She foolishly hadn't noticed it.

    How did this little fellow manage to live those years by himself?

    "You have grown up..."

    Mu Ru Yue teared and laughed as she looked at him, tearing.

    "Aunt brought me out from that place about a decade ago so that I can start to cultivate again. Mother, I swear that I will protect you well in this life so that the tragedy of that year won't occur again!"

    Zi Qian Jing closed his eyes in misery.

    That scene from that year played in his mind once more, making him pale from the pain. He only opened his eyes after a long time had passed and looked dazedly at Mu Ru Yue.

    The people of the Xiao family were stupefied.

    Even though they were clueless as to what they were talking about, they understood that the teenage youth was a thousand-year-old monster. How powerful was the aunt that he had said was able to live for such a long time?

    Qing Shi's body shuddered, but before he could react, the youth shot an icy gaze at him. With a sinister smirk, he asked, "You wanted to kill my mother even by sacrificing yourself? Since you want to die that badly, I won't let you die so cleanly."

    A life worse than death was the best punishment!

    Zi Qian Jing sniggered. He slowly released the woman in his embrace, looked at the elder before him, and continued, "But how do you think I shall punish you? How about... chopping you up into tiny pieces to feed the dogs? Of course, don't worry, I won't let you die quickly. I will let you personally watch as your meat is being carved."

    The youth no longer knew what kindness was after what happened a thousand years ago. Kindness would only scorch you to death. Currently, it would suffice as long as his two most beloved people lived.

    What did the death of others have anything to do with him?

    Qing Shi's eyes widened slowly. It was difficult for him to imagine that such a handsome youth would say such ruthless words.

    'Carving his meat to feed the dogs? How bloodthirsty and heartless is he?'

    Qing Shi's body shuddered before a violent aura burst forth. "Brat, I won't let what you want happen even if I die!"

    Zi QIan Jing narrowed his eyes slightly as he saw his action. With his cold smile intensifying, he sneered, "You want to self-destruct? Sorry, but self-destruction is useless in front of our family of three!"

    1. Miki pondered, 'I think Ed from Full Metal Alchemist anime should understand half of that pain from reconnecting his limbs too. His portions of connection are an arm and a leg, but yours is all four limbs. You two are such poor things. T.T'
