He is back!
The three words were echoing in the minds of Liu Xiaoli and Lin Yuxi like a deafening thunder from the Nine Heavens!
Xu Que’s identity was a little bit different at this moment. His soul was from Earth, but his body was from the World of Cultivators. After so many years of cultivation, his body, which was almost reshaped, had merged with his soul completely.
They were totally stunned and didn’t believe what they had heard!
What does this mean?
Xu Que died six years ago!
You told us he is back! How could a dead person come back to this world?
“Hey, what’s going on? Why did my words scare you that much?”
Their reaction surprised Huang Cheng a bit. Then he said, shaking his head with a smile, “Don’t worry! Although Xu Que is an extraordinary person now, he has gotten over the things that happened in the past. I can see he doesn’t have time to get even with you! Even I can’t stand by idly and watch it any longer. I mean you, Liu Xiaoli, please don’t speak ill of Xu Que in the future, or I’m afraid you will have a hard time in the film industry!”
After saying that, Huang Cheng turned around and was about to leave.
“Wait!” Lin Yuxi grew pale and stopped him suddenly. “Mr. Huang, do you mean you have met Xu Que?”
“Certainly. Just now we shared a car on our way here! It so happened that the reunion of his junior middle school classmates was also being held in this restaurant!” Huang Cheng said,nodding his head.
All of a sudden, the wine glass dropped from Liu Xiaoli’s hands.
“Ah!” She couldn’t help but shout in surprise. She was even stunned by her reaction. Then, she said, staring at Huang Cheng angrily, “Huang Cheng, are you insane? Do you think it is interesting to scare us like this?”
“Scare you?” Huang Cheng was confused.
How could you be scared by my kind suggestion? Could it be that Xu Que is even more powerful than I imagined?
“Humph! Yuxi, just ignore him! Do you really believe what he just said? Xu Que died six years ago! You saw his body in the hospital yourself!” Liu Xiaoli gave Huang Cheng a mean look, for she thought Huang Cheng was trying to fool them. Then she turned to leave, dragging Lin Yuxi with her.
However, this time it was Huang Cheng’s turn to be badly scared.
Liu Xiaoli’s words totally shocked Huang Cheng, who almost sat down on the ground!
“Wait!” He shouted in fear. “Liu Xiaoli, what…what did you say? Xu Que died six years ago?”
Liu Xiaoli rolled her eyes. “Bullcrap! Don’t tell me you don’t know about this! We don’t have time to talk nonsense with you today!”
“Holy crap! I really don’t know anything about this crap! No, you are fooling me! We came here in the same car today! I also saw he was with Director Cai! Right, Director Cai!” Huang Cheng, who was panic-stricken, realized something and his face darkened immediately.
Xu Que might be dead. Director Cai couldn’t be dead!
It is impossible that Director Cai was trying to scare me with a ghost!
I was almost fooled by this woman!
Then Huang Cheng sneered. “Liu Xiaoli, could the story you fabricated be more reasonable? You know Director Cai Tengjin, right? He is a classmate of Xu Que’s. Just now he drove Xu Que and me here. Now they are having dinner in this restaurant! We can go and have a look if you don’t believe me!”
“Director Cai?” Liu Xiaoli was surprised.
Cai Tengjin was definitely one of the most famous directors in Huaxia. Anyone who wanted to do business in the film field or was interested in the film industry of Huaxia would know Director Cai! Was Director Cai Xu Que’s classmate?
“Wait! I remember the film that was released by Director Cai, who acted as its investor, last year!” Liu Xiaoli realized something suddenly.
The name of the director and producer of the film, which shocked the entire world last year, was also Xu Que! She had thought that guy had had the same name as Xu Que, however….
“Huang Cheng, are you sure the one you saw was Xu Que?” Liu Xiaoli asked, as she looked at Huang Cheng seriously.
“Of course I am! I talked with him in the car about many things that happened in our high school days! If you still don’t believe me, let’s go to find him now!” Huang Cheng said impatiently. Meanwhile, he was quite confused because this seemed to be the first time that Liu Xiaoli was acting so serious in front of him. Lin Yuxi, who was beside them, turned pale completely and couldn’t believe what she had heard at all. She was totally dumbfounded.
Liu Xiaoli couldn’t sit still anymore. She asked, looking at Lin Yuxi, “Yuxi, are you sure you witnessed Xu Que’s death?”
Lin Yuxi nodded her head stiffly. She was quite sure that Xu Que had really died.
Liu Xiaoli said seriously, “Huang Cheng, you hear that? We have no reason to cheat you. Xu Que really died. Yuxi was Xu Que’s ex-girlfriend. They broke up in their freshman year because of some conflicts. When Xu Que was on his way back to the campus, he was killed in a car accident! Yuxi even witnessed his body before it was sent to the mortuary!”
“Eh.…” Huang Cheng was stunned. Then, he said suspiciously, “This sounds impossible! If he had been killed in a car accident, the accident would definitely have been reported on the news! Why are you the only ones who know this among so many classmates?”
“Because…” Lin Yuxi said suddenly in a hoarse voice as her eyes reddened, “…because it was not an accident! Someone murdered him, and the truth has been covered up ever since!”
“What?” Liu Xiaoli was surprised. Apparently, this was the first time for her to hear about this too.
Huang Cheng was completely puzzled. He couldn’t believe Xu Que was really dead!
Damn! He is definitely alive!
“Mr. Huang, did you really see him with your own eyes?” Lin Yuxi asked with a trembling voice as she looked at Huang Cheng. So many years had passed. People assumed she would have forgotten Xu Que completely. But she hadn’t. It was not because she still had an affection for Xu Que. For many years, she had been tortured by self-accusations, for she blamed herself for Xu Que’s death.
Therefore, she couldn’t believe the news that Xu Que was back! She didn’t know how to describe this feeling. It was unreal; relaxing, but even more terrifying! For she was quite sure Xu Que had really died. The bloody scene was still in her mind.
“That’s enough! Let me lead you to him, you can have a look for yourselves! If what you said is true, I guess he didn’t die!” Huang Cheng realized Lin Yuxi and Liu Xiaoli weren’t fooling with him because their reactions seemed so serious.
Thus, there was only one possibility left. Xu Que wasn’t killed. He had found a place to heal his wounds, and now he had come back recently.
“Let’s go and have a look. Yuxi, don’t worry, maybe you were deceived before!” Liu Xiaoli said, as she looked at Lin Yuxi.
Lin Yuxi had also gotten suspicious. Could it be that he was not killed? Or, the one who was killed was not him just like some quaint movie plots! He might have pretended to be dead!
Being driven to distraction by all these assumptions, Lin Yuxi was dragged out of the main hall by Liu Xiaoli. Then, they headed for the private dining room area with Huang Cheng.
At the same time, Xu Que had drunk a lot with Cai in a private dining room.
The old classmates who hadn’t seen each other for so many years had almost become strangers. They just gotten together to talk about the things that happened in their middle school years.
However, Xu Que couldn’t remember the things that happened so long ago. After spending several years in the World of Cultivators and decades in the illusory realm, how could he remember those trifling things that happened during his middle school years?
Therefore, Xu Que stood up to say good-bye to everyone after several drinks. He decided to go to the main hall. It couldn’t be better than if Lin Yuxi was also there for he could take this opportunity to ask her about the things that happened in those years that he didn’t know about. Also, he would take this opportunity to ask about the whereabouts of his younger sister.
He had asked Cai to search for his younger sister. However, Cai couldn’t find any information about her. What Cai could confirm was that his younger sister was not in Huaxia at all.
“Xu, are you really going to leave?” Cai Tengjin couldn’t help but say with a wry smile when he saw Xu Que was about to leave.
He thought Xu Que would be mocked by the others for being dumped by Lin Yuxi all those years ago.
“Right! You just continue to enjoy the reunion! Cai, don’t forget the thing I asked you to do! When you have it done, please call me immediately!” Xu Que reminded Cai about preventing tourists from visiting Mount Tai with a smile.
“Don’t worry. I’ve asked my people to do that before coming here. It shall be done in two days! Don’t leave in such a hurry. When you finish your business, please come back. I want to leave together with you!” Cai said.
“No, I still have other business to deal with. I will come see you in several days!” Xu Que waved his hand and left.
He opened the door of the private dining room and stepped out. When he had stepped out of the room, Xu Que was surprised a little bit.
In the corridor, Huang Chang, Liu Xiaoli, and Lin Yuxi were just in front of him. All of a sudden, it seemed that the air around them was frozen, together with time. They said nothing, but looked at each other in surprise and shock!
“What?” Xu Que registered surprise on making eye contact with Lin Yuxi. Old memories reappeared in his mind. However, those things that happened in the past were as transient as a fleeting cloud!
Xu Que had already put all those issues aside. Now he only cared about three issues – bringing Jiang Hongyan to Earth, finding Xu Fei Fei, and investigating the cause of his death in his past life.
All the rest of the issues meant nothing to him!
After coming to himself, he looked at Lin Yuxi calmly, his eyes were filled with indifference and strangeness. He had become the horrible big devil in the World of Cultivators. She was just an ordinary person!
Although their past had left something remarkable in his memory, she couldn’t cause any mood swings in his heart now!
At the same time, Lin Yuxi’s heart was filled with complicated feelings – guilt, shock, fear, and pleasant joy…. She didn’t know how to describe this complicated mood. However, the reaction of her body was that her eyes were filled up with tears! She wanted to rush up and hug Xu Que in her arms, because the self-accusation that had tortured her for so many years seemed to disappear completely.
At this moment, Xu Que said ,as he looked at her calmly, “Ms. Lin, long time, no see!”
His calm tone was full of indifference and strangeness like his current mood!
