975 Forgive the Honest Person

    After messing around for some time, Jiang Fei finally recovered from his injuries. Right then, Isabella and Jiang Fei sat facing each other silently.

    In all honesty, the two had not known each other for a very long time. The game had only been launched less than a year ago. After Isabella's death, three months had passed before she was brought into the real world. However, both Jiang Fei and Isabella felt as if several years had passed since they had last met.

    During the period of waiting, Jiang Fei had tried to look for energy wherever he could so that he was able to resurrect Isabella. His feelings for her were undeniable. As for Isabella, she had been sealed away in an empty space with nothing but darkness. She could not even feel her own presence.

    After 0541 had extracted Isabella and Ariel from the game, their consciousness was stored in a void. Ariel was lucky as Jiang Fei had revived her not too long after. However, Isabella was less fortunate. She had been locked inside the space ever since.

    The most frightful experience was perhaps not death itself, but rather the loneliness one could feel in an empty space. Isabella had experienced that firsthand without any light or object around her. One could only imagine the depressing state of being alone.

    During this time, each second felt like a year to Isabella.

    Perhaps Isabella had only been sealed away for several months to Jiang Fei. However, in the endless space, time was meaningless. There was no distinction between a second, a minute, a day, a year, or even several thousand years. This was because there was no way for Isabella to keep track of time.

    The only reason Isabella had been able to keep herself sane while living in this endless space was the thought of Jiang Fei.

    She replayed the scenes of herself and Jiang Fei in her mind over and over again during this time. This was also what had fortified Isabella's consciousness.

    Although 0542 had provided a lot of energy to Isabella while resurrecting her, a real Level 5 expert needed to comprehend the rules of power. This was not something that could be solved by external energy. Otherwise, Jiang Fei would have achieved the Level 5 state already.

    The rule of power could not be easily comprehended. However, as Isabella had been sealed away for a long period in the endless space, she was able to comprehend her own rule of power without distraction.

    As such, the powers Isabella possessed far exceeded Ariel's after she had been resurrected.

    Regardless of how strong Isabella had become, the only person she had missed and loved was Jiang Fei. In fact, her feelings for Jiang Fei had even grown exponentially during her time spent in the endless space. She could not hold back her emotions any longer.

    "Husband, I've missed you..." Isabella whimpered as she wrapped her arms around Jiang Fei.

    "I miss you too... We'll never be apart again..." Jiang Fei was equally emotional. He held her to his chest as he gently caressed her back to calm her down.

    Ariel could feel tears rolling in her eyes as she witnessed the scene before her. Although she was touched by the emotional moment, she also remembered that Jiang Fei needed to spill the beans about what he had done with other women. This was Isabella's weakest and also gentlest moment. Once she became her usual self, Jiang Fei would be in huge trouble.

    "Ehh..." Jiang Fei could see that Ariel was hinting at him to do his part. Jiang Fei had already planned what he would do. Firstly, as Isabella would no longer be able to return to the game, Jiang Fei decided to keep the females in the game a secret. After all, ever since Isabella had been sealed away, most of the women he wooed belonged in the game. There were at least a dozen of the Naga Priestesses. If Isabella found out, she might beat the crap out of Jiang Fei.

    Although Isabella got jealous very easily and had a hot temper, she was still a reasonable person. As Jiang Fei only had Si Tuying as his girlfriend in the real world, he believed that Isabella would not be too upset. As for Hong Yu and the other female Bio-Humans, Isabella had known them from the game since they were all Hua Mulan's subordinates. Therefore, Jiang Fei had not actually wooed any new females in the real world.

    Despite there still being a chance that Isabella might get jealous, the risk was relatively low. However, it all depended on Jiang Fei not revealing the truth about females in the game. Otherwise, he would be in huge trouble.

    "Bella, now that we are reunited, there's something I have to tell you..." Jiang Fei hesitated before speaking.

    "Alright, go on." Isabella was still in Jiang Fei's embrace. When she thought of how Jiang Fei had risked his life to cover her body up, she felt a warmth in her heart.

    "Umm... Do you still remember when I told you about my girlfriend in the real world?" Jiang Fei had learned this trick from Han Tianyu. Since Jiang Fei had told Isabella about this before, she could not blame him for hiding the truth from her. As for whether she could remember the conversation or not, it had nothing to do with Jiang Fei.

    "Did you really?" Isabella suddenly became very alert. Although she no longer had the DNA of a Dragon after being resurrected, she was still a girl who got jealous very easily.

    However, as Isabella had been sealed away in the endless space for too long, she was not sure if she had lost some of her memory. When she saw how serious Jiang Fei looked, she believed that he was telling the truth. Could she have not paid attention when he told her about his girlfriend in the real world? Or could she have lost that part of her memory during her time in the endless space?

    The longer Isabella hesitated, the more confident Jiang Fei grew. As long as she doubted herself, he would be able to carry on with his plan. After that, Jiang Fei continued speaking with an even more assuring tone, "Of course, I've told you about her more than once!"

    "Uhm... Alright. What's up with her?" When Isabella saw how confident Jiang Fei appeared, she began to seriously doubt her own memory.

    "Oh! She's fine. Now that you've come to our world, I hope you and she can get along with each other," Jiang Fei said with a smile. This was the moment of truth. Isabella's reaction would determine Jiang Fei's fate.

    "Are you really not lying to me?" Isabella suddenly inched closer to Jiang Fei. Their noses were practically touching each other. Moreover, Isabella's hand was gripping Jiang Fei's waist. Despite being sealed away for a very long time, Isabella still remembered her ultimate technique.
