Chapter 129

Edited and Proofread by KitKat

Mo Di used to think that the world was unfair. 

But as time passed and events unfolded, he believed that there was a balance to everything.

His life was once filled with bitterness and hardships that he had to do anything to survive but now, it was filled with happiness that every breath was like breathing in honey.

He had good friends, a successful career, a goal, and most importantly, the most amazing lover in the world.

Mu Tian Heng understood him, doted on him, cared for him, and loved him more than himself. Of course Mo Di also felt the same.

And loving someone else more than yourself doesn’t mean that they’ll love themselves any less. They both treasured their friends, career and also their health. 

And being in the pink of health had become particularly important to Mu Tian Heng because he was eleven years older than Mo Di, an age gap that was quite large. Once he reached forty, Mu Tian Heng had developed a new hobby – health management.

A good appearance could allow him to stand next to Mo Di and chase away suitors but a healthy body would allow him to accompany his little one as long as he can. He hoped that even when he was seventy, eighty, or even a hundred years old, he was still strong enough to protect his beloved.

In fact, he wanted to live a little longer than his Mo Di, just a little bit longer was enough…

That way, he could watch over his Mo Di till the very last second and not let him suffer any loss and sadness.

When Mo Di turned thirty-one, Di Yi Mu had become the third largest enterprise in the world. Mo Di’s assets had also soared, placing him only behind Mu Tian Heng as the world’s second richest. 

Mu Tian Heng was very proud of him and sent out bonuses to employees of both their companies. 

On the other hand, Mo Di may seem modest but he secretly made it his goal to surpass Mu Tian Heng one day. Mu Tian Heng made it to the top of the list at thirty-six and Mo Di was determined to get there at a younger age.

Compared to them, Lai De Si and Song Yu led a more simple life.

Lai De Si proposed to Song Yu at thirty-two and they were married when he was thirty-three. Since then, he had put aside his high-earning career to devotedly serve his partner. He no longer slept in and would wake up at five-thirty sharp to prepare breakfast, making sure that Song Yu would have a hearty meal every day. 

With practice comes mastery, eventually, Lai De Si had become quite an outstanding chef. Every month, the pair would visit Mu Tian Heng and Mo Di and when Song Yu gave Mo Di a serving of dessert that Lai De Si made, Mo Di was in quite a shock!

He became increasingly suspicious that the Lai De Si in front of him who obeyed Song Yu’s every word was actually a … shou?

Mo Di was incredibly baffled until he happened to see Lai De Si pinning Song Yu down on the grass in his backyard, licking and kissing him like a big Tibetan Mastiff…

Poor Uncle Song, it must not be easy when your gong is a silly Tibetan Mastiff.

…..

Mo Di and Mu Tian Heng lived until the end of the twenty-first century.

Crowned as the two most influential entrepreneurs in the world, they have become a role model for many to follow. They have become such illustrious figures that young people might not know who the president of a particular country was but they will know Mu Tian Heng and Mo Di’s name. This was because apart from being successful businessmen, they were also well-respected philanthropists. 

They have begun their charity work after their marriage. And the more they earned, the more they would give. Their donation helped to build schools, hospitals, libraries, and many more public facilities across the globe. Countless people of all nationalities were aided by the Mu Mo Charity Foundation, not to mention those who had benefited from the public buildings like stadiums and libraries that the foundation had constructed.

Even after the two had passed on, all their assets were donated to the Mu Mo Charity Foundation so it could continue to help as many people as it could.

Mu Tian Heng and Mo Di died on the same day. It was said that after Mo Di’s heart had stopped beating, Mu Tian Heng laid in the same bed and held Mo Di’s hand and in less than an hour, he drew his last breath.

That night, the areas that had been touched by the Mu Mo Charity Foundation all put up a flag to mourn their passing. All over the web and every media outlet across the globe had reported this sad news and billions sincerely mourned their deaths.

But what they did not know was that Mo Di… he had opened his eyes in another world.

…..

Mo Di could vividly remember that the moment he died, his vitality and strength were pulled from his body. He tried to reach for Mu Tian Heng but his fingers did not budge. He wanted to speak but his voice didn’t come out. Other than feeling Mu Tian Heng’s embrace and the tears that fell on his cheek, there was nothing else he could.

Just like that, he laid and listened to Mu Tian Heng calling out to him. He called him his little one, his darling, and asked him not to sleep…

At this point, Mo Di couldn’t help but feel a little embarrassed, his last strength was probably wasted on him blushing. Upon his death, he was already ninety years old. The older he got, the more embarrassed he was being called by Mu Tian Heng as his baby or little one. But his brother would still insist on addressing him as such. Even in death, Mo Di could still feel his goosebumps coming out.

But Mo Di was still unwilling to part with this voice calling him ‘little one’, unwilling to part with the man who would forever treat him as a kid, unwilling to part with his brother…

…..

“Wah!”

A cry pierced the silence. 

The sound was getting louder, causing Mo Di a slight discomfort. 

Why is there a baby crying here? How did it get to his house and keep crying like this? 

Where’s his brother? Why would he let a baby come into their bedroom?

But in the next second, Mo Di felt a choking sensation and before he could ponder how a dead person could choke, a bright light flashed.

Mo Di realized: he could actually open his eyes!

And in front of him was the face of an old woman he was not familiar with. She looked at him and her eyes turned red. She smiled and exclaimed, “Thank goodness, thank goodness…”

Mo Di was still in a daze with befuddlement. He moved his hand to wipe his eyes… 

A hand that could only belong to a three-year-old at most!

“Wu ah!”

Mo Di was shocked and almost wanted to cry.

What the hell is going on?!

At this time, a middle-aged woman came in. She looked at him and smiled, “Mother Wen, this child is really fortunate. I thought he couldn’t be saved, to think he had opened his eyes.”

“Hai…” Mother Wen sighed, “It’s because we’re so poor that we couldn’t send him to a hospital. He could only fight for his life on his own.”

“Mother Wen, you shouldn’t blame yourself. There are tens of children here and they’re all cared for by you. When this child was discovered on the roadside, he was already in a fatal condition. You shouldn’t think too much.”

“…”

Mo Di listened to their conversation and finally understood the situation he was in. This was probably one of those cases like in the movies and novels, transmigration was it? 

And apparently, he had transmigrated into the body of a kid from the orphanage!

But what about his brother? What happened to his brother?! Where is he right now?!

Mo Di began to panic. He clenched his fists and two large droplets of tears formed in his eyes, “Brother, brother, brother…”

“Hey, he’s talking!” the middle-aged woman looked at Mo Di and smiled, “He’s calling for his brother.”

“Maybe this child has a brother.” Mother Wen had a sad look on her face. After saying that, she could hear a rapid knocking coming from the door.

“Teacher Zhao, Teacher Zhao, Mu Tian is fighting again! He’s fighting again!”

“What happened?” 

The middle-aged woman went to open the door. 

At the door stood several kids and a man. The man was holding the back of the collar of a boy of eight or nine. 

“Mr. Li, did Mu Tian fight again?”

“This kid’s simply unruly. You ladies deal with him, I’m only a volunteer and I’ll be leaving tomorrow anyway.” The man pushed the boy into the room and turned to leave with the other kids.

The boy seemed to be in bad shape, one push and he had fallen to the ground. 

When Mu Tian Heng fully gained consciousness, he found that he was facing the ground as though he just had a hard fall.

In fact, he was aware of being dragged about by the man but his body was still unresponsive. Only now was he fully awake.

Mother Wen saw that Mu Tian had fallen and anxiously ran to him, “Mu Tian, are you injured?”

Mu Tian Heng shook his head without much thought.

Seeing the boy shake his head, Mother Wen was relieved, “Why were you fighting again? Didn’t you promise me you wouldn’t fight anymore?”

Mu Tian Heng kept his head down and did not speak.

Does this mean that he had transmigrated? But his heart was heavy and there was no joy even when he was given a second life.

His little one is not here. What is the point of living this life?

But in the next second, Mu Tian Heng heard a sticky little voice calling out ‘brother’. 

There was a sense of familiarity close to his heart in that tone.

Just like the way his little one would call him, it was short and concise but carried a sweetness that would make his heart melt.

Mu Tian Heng raised his head.

In front of him was a woman with a three-year-old baby boy in her arms. The baby looked just like a super mini version of his Mo Di with his beautiful black eyes and long eyelashes. When the baby saw him, he cried even harder and reached desperately for him with his short stubby arms. The little voice repeatedly called out to him, “Brother… Brother!”

Mu Tian Heng was stunned for a moment. His eyes were red and his heart almost stopped.

He quickly ran up and carefully grabbed baby Mo Di from Mother Wen and embraced him. 

“Brother is here, brother is here…”

“My little one, don’t be scared. You’ll never have to be scared.”

THE END

The author has something to say:

This final world is the real world that Mo Liu Gui came from. For equilibrium, since Mo Liu Gui was smuggled in, the world conscious had sneaked Mo Di out. In addition, because the Mu Mo Charity Foundation had helped countless lives, the good wishes collected were powerful enough for the world conscious to send the old beast to this world for them to be united and have a happy life!

Chapter 128

“Xiao Di, Xiao Di! You, you remember to watch that video I sent you. That, that one … pfff!” Zhao Chun’s face was red as she had to cover her mouth to keep herself from bursting into laughter.

Mo Di was accustomed to her shenanigans and cooly said, “Looks like you’re done with work, let me give you a new assignment.”

“Ah no! I’ve only rested for five minutes!” Zhao Chun protested.

Mo Di shook his head and laughed.

After Qin Guang Jie maliciously exposed Mu Tian Heng and Mo Di’s relationship three years ago, it had pushed them to make an official statement regarding their marriage and life had been a little different since.

In the beginning, there were indeed some downsides with people who discriminated against homosexuality openly castigating them online and some even boycotted Mo Di’s company. His rival companies took this opportunity to add fuel to the fire and hired water armies to abuse and discredit Mo Di’s games.

However, these people only had a brief period of success.

Impression, the company founded by Mu Tian Heng at that time was the world’s second largest company. His public relations team was not the best but it was one of the best. They quickly came up with countermeasures and a plan to smooth things out. 

Very soon, public opinion was flipped. In fact, if it weren’t for the powerful water armies, the general consensus was quite positive. 

As the negative influence of the water armies waned, numerous posts supporting their relationship surfaced. Amongst the female population, some voiced that they were disappointed because their two male gods were already taken, but there was no malice in their words. The rest were drooling fujoshi whose idolization of the two had increased exponentially.

With that, Mu Tian Heng’s team began to publish various fanfictions orchestrated by Mu Tian Heng of how the two met and fell in love. One version was the actual story of how Mu Tian Heng had helped Mo Di through the difficulties like an emperor helping out a prince in distress. 

This story had gotten immensely popular and eventually, a cp fan group was created and they named their beloved pair the Heaven and Earth Couple.

This pair had met all the right criteria to stir up a storm. Both had excellent looks coupled with remarkable talents. Their love story was just too sweet and enticing. Furthermore, they were already married, proving this was not a hoax to raise publicity. 

As the fanbase grew, more artworks, fanfics, manhua, and merchandise were created. This also greatly influenced the market value of both Mo Di and Mu Tian Heng’s companies which the fans also called the Heaven and Earth shares. Acquiring these means that you’ll most probably never go hungry.

Ultimately, this phenomenon spread to countries abroad, and now, every country had fans of the Heaven and Earth couple.

In the beginning, Mo Di was a little embarrassed but under the frequent exposure, he succumbed and sometimes would secretly browse the web reading fanfictions about them.

Eating his own dog food, he thought he was quite incredible this way.

Zhao Chun was a Heaven and Earth cp fan. Everytime she happened to find good ‘food’, she would dedicatedly send them to Mo Di with a giggling face.

What Mo Di did not know was that Mu Tian Heng would also sometimes flip through the stories that he helped create whenever he was away from him. As of now, the exclusive Heaven and Earth CP website had already posted several of his stories. Even the writing competition with the monetary top prize of several tens of thousands of yuan was sponsored by him. Compared to this old beast, Mo Di was still considerably naive.

…..

When Mo Di had graduated for three years, at the age of twenty four, his company, Di Yi Mu, had been established for six years and is currently christened as the dragon of the Hua Xia game industry. But Di Yi Mu was not only popular in Hua Xia, its influence had spread across the globe with Infinite Life’s elements being the basis for new infinite flow games but none of them were able to shake it off its throne.

Needless to say that Infinite Life was not Di Yi Mu’s only world-famous game. Over the years, it produced the MOBA game, Battle, the open-world role-playing game, Path of the Immortal, the dating sim game, Secret Summer, and the horror survival game, The Survivor is King

Although these games could not boost Mo Di’s assets to the point where they surpassed Mu Tian Heng’s, he was still on the list of the world’s twenty richest. Many analysts said that if Di Yi Mu had shifted its games towards pay-to-win mechanics, Mo Di could easily surpass Mu Tian Heng in terms of earnings.

Reading this, the cp fans all exclaimed that Mo Di simply did not want to overtake his gong too early!

Sometimes, there would be posts online that mentioned the Mo family and wondered if they had regretted how they had treated Mo Di.

The answer was definitely a yes.

Six years had passed since the Mo family got on that fateful cruise ship. By right, they should’ve been able to pay off their debts in five years but not everyone was able to take the initiative as Mo San Zhi did. Although failure to complete the quota would result in more severe punishment, some people would still prefer to procrastinate. 

As such, the Mo family’s stay was extended for another year. It was until June of this year that they were able to pay back all their gambling debts. However, when they were released (which also included Mo Si Lang who was sent straight to the ship after his release from prison), they had all seemed less human. They had lost their previous temperament but had become a little neurotic.

Mu Tian Heng had provided them with a large piece of land in a rural foreign country where they could sustain themselves through farming. He had people watching over them to ensure that they stayed put. On top of that, he had also sent Mo Liu Gui, who had been kept in the mental hospital for six years to reunite with them.

In the second year of her confinement in the mental hospital, Mo Liu Gui’s mental state had become somewhat disarrayed. 

After knowing the truth, she still firmly believed that the world revolved around her. She was the epicenter of this universe and that everyone should adore and worship her, love her unconditionally and devote their lives to her.

Too bad the reality was just the opposite. 

This cruel contrast had almost made her go insane. Especially after she was transferred to the ward with actual mental patients. Every day, she was surrounded by the horrid wails and strange behaviors of these eccentric inpatients. Her sanity gradually collapsed and she began to hide in her own fantasy.

She deluded herself into thinking that the system still existed and Mo Di had been killed by her followers. Countless men would kneel at her feet, the public was infatuated with her and the world would treat her as a goddess.

And so even without being tortured, Mo Liu Gui had managed to go nuts using her own delusion.

By the time she was sent to reunite with the Mos, she had degenerated completely into a mental patient with a serious case of day-dreaming. Even at first glance, one could tell by looking at her eyes that she was abnormal.

When she finally saw the Mo family members, she had told them to serve her tea.

To the now deranged Mo family, seeing Mo Liu Gui had ignited the anger from all the tortures they had to endure. To think she still had the nerve to provoke them. Unable to control their anger, the two aunts-in-law gave Mo Liu Gui a barrage of slaps across her face while pulling at her hair.

As for Mo Liu Gui’s mother, Ruan Qing Dan, not laying a hand on her was the greatest ‘love’ she could give her daughter. In fact, Ruan Qing Duan was never a selfless mother. In the six years that she had to suffer, she hated Mo Di every minute and her love for Mo Liu Gui had also disappeared.

It goes without saying that the rest of the Mo family all hated Mo Liu Gui to the bone. 

Even after giving her a good whacking, the aunts were still unsatisfied. They had to endure countless tortures because of Mo Liu Gui while she was given a much lesser punishment?! They refused to let Mo Liu Gui off so easily. 

Whatever that they were made to endure, why don’t they let her have a taste?

…..

With such an eventful reunion, the Mo family’s days were bound to get exciting. They were indeed meant to be a family.

Chapter 127

Mu Tian Heng had proven with his action what it was like when an old beast was too concerned that his little one would be abducted by others.

When Mo Di was in his sophomore year, Mu Tian Heng brought him back to America to be engaged. When he was a Junior, Mu Tian Heng brought him back once again to hold a wedding for them. It was a grand wedding with a small number of guests; only close friends and relatives were invited.

Other than Chen Zhao who was given the heads up by his uncle, Xian Yu Chao and the others were dumbfounded the moment they received the invitation.

They would never have thought that their Xiao Di had been in a relationship all along! And it was with Mu Tian Heng!! And they were going to get married!!!

Married!!!

Mu Tian Heng and Mo Di’s wedding was held on October third. It was a popular date to get married in Hua Xia but that was not the most important point. The most important part was that their wedding took place one month before Mo Di’s twentieth birthday, in other words, Mu Tian Heng that, old beast, had married Mo Di when he was only nineteen!

The guests who attended their wedding were all close friends of Mo Di and Mu Tian Heng but despite that, they reaffirmed that Mu Tian Heng was indeed a beast to have laid hands on Mo Di at such a young age!

Advertisements

That day, Mo Di wore a white wedding suit, giving him a tender and naive appearance. Soft sunlight danced across the stage and Mu Tian Heng looked at the scene like it was a dream. 

He had waited two lifetimes. The image in front of him brought a scorching sensation to his deep eyes.

Mo Di looked up at the handsome and awe-inspiring Mu Tian Heng whose eyes had now softened while looking back at him. Mo Di smiled with a special glow in his eyes.

Click. 

A photographer captured this moment down.

This photo was later developed three times. One for them to keep in their treasure box, one to be framed and placed on their bedside table, and the last one to go into Mu Tian Heng’s wallet.

Whenever he was out with an acquaintance, Mu Tian Heng would disregard any form of mobile payment only to take out his wallet and naturally show off his wedding photo.

Being one of Mu Tian Heng’s overly familiar acquaintances, Lai De Si had to endure this cruel treatment every time.

What’s the big deal! Soon, he and Song Yu will also get married! It won’t be long now… Next year… The end of next year, he will propose and shove his happiness back in Mu Tian Heng’s face!!

…..

Due to his young age and the low-key wedding, Mo Di’s marital status was not known to the public. 

Therefore…

He was still the most popular male god of his school and had stolen the hearts of many juniors and even the postgraduates.

In the second semester of his senior year, knowing that he was graduating, many mustered up their courage to confess to him and sent him love letters. Initially, Mo Di could still reject them politely with a smile but as the number of confessors piled up, Mo Di had no patience for them and changed his status on his social media account to ‘married’.

The news shocked the entire school! After the social media got wind of it, the whole network was in an uproar! The genius of the gaming industry is only twenty-one, how is it that he was married?!

Reporters went directly to his game company to interview the employees but they could not reach the senior employees like Xian Yu Chao and the others and could only interview the ordinary employees. However, they too were unaware that Mo Di was married. These reporters could not get a definitive answer and were still doubtful about Mo Di’s marriage.

When Mo Di got home that day, he was wrapped in Mu Tian Heng’s arms the moment he picked Suan Suan up. “You announced that you were married?”

“Um, I don’t want to have to deal with any more confessions.” Mo Di raise his head and responded with a smile. He then grabbed Mu Tian Heng’s collar and said, “Brother, all this time, you weren’t jealous at all?”

“Of course I was.” Mu Tian Heng pulled Mo Di in by the waist with one hand and held his hand with the other. He then bent down to kiss him on the lips. Mo Di relinquished his strength and welcomed Mu Tian Heng’s deep kiss.

Suan Suan who was sandwiched by the two stretched out its neck and let out an innocent cry.

Feeling the fluffy touch on his cheek, Mo Di couldn’t help but giggle. He looked down at Suan Suan and rubbed its nose, “Do you want a kiss too?”

Awoo. Suan Suan thought that Mo Di was going to play with it and started to shake its tail vigorously.

But Mu Tian Heng ruthlessly picked it up by the neck and shoved it to one side, “Go to the balcony and eat your dog food.”

Mo Di laughed even harder, “He was eating dog food just now.”

Mu Tian Heng smiled at Mo Di’s words. With doting eyes, he stretched to rub his hair, “You’re right.”

After saying that, he continued, “Why did you suddenly decide to announce that you’re married today?”

“Because you’ll definitely make me postpone and I really think that’s not necessary,” Mo Di looked at Mu Tian Heng and smiled, “I’ll be graduating soon and it’s only two months till I’m done with school.”

Mu Tian Heng gently stroked Mo Di’s left cheek. He rested his finger on Mo Di’s little dimple, “That’s fine then.”

He knew Mo Di had long wanted to disclose their relationship but Mu Tian Heng had stopped him from doing so. Deep down, Mu Tian Heng also wanted to selfishly announce their marriage to the public and let the world know about their relationship but rationale told him that it was still not the time, this was Hua Xia.

Although the younger generation of Hua Xia had come to accept homosexuality and no longer discriminated against it, a large majority was still somewhat inhospitable towards them.

Mo Di was still in school and once his marital status was known, it was inevitable that the public would eventually find out that he had married a man. Mu Tian Heng did not want Mo Di to be subjected to any form of bigotry from his peers and worst of all, people who were homophobic. After all, the school was never the safest place which was why, although he was utterly jealous, Mu Tian Heng did not let Mo Di disclose their marriage.

Outside of school, Mu Tian Heng could barricade Mo Di against admirers but he was hopeless when it came to those in his school. Despite having absolute trust in Mo Di, Mu Tian Heng couldn’t help but feel jealous. He knew Mo Di would reject all advances but he did not expect his little one to make this move so boldly.

When Mu Tian Heng got the news, his heart was all over the place. He was surprised at first but was delighted in the end. After which, he contemplated on how to deal with the follow-up. At least keep the lid on Mo Di having a man as his spouse until he graduates. And even if this was leaked, he could still suppress the information.

As for Mo Di, he could definitely tell what Mu Tian Heng was concerned with. 

He grinned and jumped into his arms. Mu Tian Heng skillfully supported Mo Di and let him nestle comfortably in his embrace.

“Brother, you don’t have to worry. I’ll be graduating soon and even if this matter was dug up, I won’t let anyone in school bully me. Moreover, I’m very well-liked by my professors, I’m sure they won’t discredit me for it,” Mo Di stopped and smooched Mu Tian Heng’s cheek before continuing, “Brother, I also want the world to know that you and I are together. Don’t think you’re the only one who’s allowed to be jealous.”

Mu Tian Heng had announced his marital status the moment they got married but even so, there were still those who were shameless enough to try to seduce him. Although Mu Tian Heng had mercilessly rejected them and made sure they never appeared in front of him again, Mo Di couldn’t help but feel irritated.

This was also why he wanted everyone to know that he, the talented, handsome, and wealthy Mo Di, was Mu Tian Heng’s legal spouse! See if anyone else dared to even think of tempting his man!

Mu Tian Heng smiled at Mo Di’s smug expression. He placed him on the sofa and kissed him dotingly, “Alright. Let’s do as you wish. When the news spreads, we won’t suppress it and make an official statement.”

“En!” Mo Di nodded immediately. He smiled and switched to another topic, “Brother, today I received an unexpected phone call. Guess who it was?”

“An unexpected call?” Mu Tian Heng thought for a while and asked, “Could it be Qin Guang Jie?”

“Oh, Brother, you’re incredible. You got it on the first try. It’s him!”

“What did he say?” Mu Tian Heng frowned.

The Qin Group had long been toppled by Mu Tian Heng. That was in part possible thanks to the deep-seated corruption of the Qin family which allowed the police force to swiftly iron them out. Qin Guang Jie was a loving father but he was definitely not a clean businessman. His methods were similar to Qin Cheng Yi, the only difference was that he was not ‘controlled’ in prioritizing someone else’s interest over his own.

Even with the fall of the Qin family, Qin Guang Jie was not completely penniless. He was merely reduced from being Hua Xia’s richest man to an ordinary old man with a house and a car.

“He said that he went to visit Qin Cheng Yi and Qin Cheng Yi had repented.” Mo Di said.

“That’s all he said?”

“Nope. That was all he could say. I hung up right after hearing his voice and only managed to hear that part. I only picked up the call by mistake, I never accept calls from anonymous numbers.”

As soon as he said that, Mo Di’s phone rang and it was another anonymous call.

Mo Di: “…”

He outright rejected the call but three seconds later, Mu Tian Heng’s phone rang. It was the same number.

Mu Tian Heng thought it through and decided to answer it. 

Lai De Si’s voice came from the other end, “Mu, I called Xiao Di but he did not pick up. This is Xiao Yu’s new number. Remember it well!”

“Get to the point.” Song Yu’s voice entered the phone.

“Oh right. Mu, your marriage with Mo Di has been exposed. The whole network is in an uproar! I suspect someone had sold you out! Quickly take a look!!!”

The exam week flew by with Mo Di completing all his exams with ease before carrying his suitcase and heading home.

The beautiful summer vacation had come!

Mo Di already had in mind how he would be spending his days. 

He would wake up in the morning with Mu Tian Heng and they would jog together, have breakfast together and go to work together. At work, they could spend their lunch break together and after work, they’ll go home together. At home, they would chat and kiss and hug.

The mere thought of it was just perfect!

Mo Di couldn’t help but blush.

Mu Tian Heng was thinking the same but with much more added ‘activities’. After all, once the old beast had a taste, his appetite was hard to quench.

Xian Yu Chao and the others did not return home for the summer either. They all worked in the office arranged by Mu Tian Heng and Mo Di with several new members that Mo Di had recruited. With that, his company was beginning to fall on the right track.

On July fifteenth, Infinite Life officially launched. Excluding the old players from the game competition, the number of new players logging on to the game had exceeded two hundred million. The number alone had broken the record for the highest log-ins for a new game and would continue to rise. Even a month after its launch, Infinite Life had over three hundred and seventy million log-ins on the weekdays and over four hundred million on the weekends!

There was no doubt that Infinite Life had become the most popular game in Hua Xia and had surpassed its competitors by a large margin. The success of Infinite Life had opened the door for Mo Di’s company to enter the market with a splash, breaking into the forefront of the gaming industry with unlimited potential.

After the game’s first-month debut, Mo Di generously held a celebratory party for everyone using his personal funds. They were treated to a few days’ stay in a lavish resort on the outskirts of the city. In addition, Mo Di also gave each of them a big bonus and an extra week of paid annual leave.

Such benefits to students like Xian Yu Chao and the others did not seem like much but to Zhao Chun and those who had been in the field for several years were overly thrilled. She screamed with joy and gave Mo Di a big hug.

Mo Di was a little guilty because this giveaway was not without motive. The summer vacation was coming to an end and although he and his Mu Tian Heng could spend any amount of time together even when they were bored, they hadn’t traveled anywhere together. It would be a pity if they could not at least spend a few days abroad before their busy days started all over again.

With his enemies gone and his career developing steadily, Mo Di was very satisfied with his current life. He had good friends and most importantly, a perfect boyfriend. When it came to his love life with Mu Tian Heng, Mo Di did not want to have any regrets and nothing else could surpass Mu Tian Heng’s place in his heart.

After Mu Tian Heng had asked several times about his work schedule and if he could go to America with him, he could tell that Mu Tian Heng really wanted to make the trip but did not want to affect his work. But who was Mo Di if not the perfect boyfriend! How could he disappoint such a considerate partner? And so, he had arranged for the week of paid leave to accompany his Mu Tian Heng to America. This could be considered as the first of their honeymoons!

Mo Di was secretly elated thinking about the upcoming days.

After the party, when Mo Di told Mu Tian Heng about the one-week holiday, he was initially surprised but quickly realized why Mo Di had made that decision. Mu Tian Heng’s heart melted. He felt that it was time he made Mo Di his legally.

He had never regarded himself as the jealous type but lately, he had found himself exposed to too many tooth-aching situations that he simply wanted to bind his little one by his side. Not to mention others, this month alone, Mo Di had recruited a whole fresh batch of bright-eyed admirers into his company. 

His little one had grown and matured. On top of having a top-notch appearance and personality, he also had talents and a promising career. Every time he was invited to a dinner party, he stirred up a new wave of admirers. Men or women, they would butter up to him in obvious flirtation! Although they were either immediately rejected by Mo Di or secretly ‘dealt with’ by him, Mu Tian Heng still could not help but feel distressed.

Mu Tian Heng hugged Mo Di in his arms and made a quick calculation of the time.

“I’m not busy at the moment and could squeeze out four to five days of leave. Shall we go back to my house in America for a few days?” Mu Tian Heng asked while kissing Mo Di’s ear.

“Ok!”

Of course Mo Di readily agreed. He looked up at Mu Tian Heng with a smile but there was a hint of nervousness in his voice, “Brother, are you bringing me home to meet your parents?”

“I do want you to meet my parents and elder sister but the main reason for our trip is to have fun. We’ll spend some time in our home before paying my parents a visit.”

Mu Tian Heng did not reveal his hidden thoughts. He rubbed Mo Di’s cheeks and said with a smile, “You don’t have to be nervous. They’ve seen your picture and all said that you’re the Adonis of the east.”

Mo Di blushed at the praise, “Brother, did you make that up?”

“No, everything I said is true. They also said that your talents exceeded even mine. I did not start my company when I was a freshman but look at you, you’ve become a prominent figure in the Hua Xia gaming industry .”

Mo Di was both smitten and embarrassed. He snickered and buried his head into Mu Tian Heng’s neck. “So we’ll go to our home then visit uncle and aunty?”

“That’s right, we’ll go to our house first.”

Mu Tian Heng thought of something and clasped Mo Di’s waist, “It’s the little villa that you picked. The interior is exactly as you saw it. We can always redecorate the place like what we did for the house we just bought here. What do you think?”

“There’s no need. I quite like it the way it is.” Mu Tian Heng was a little itchy as he felt Mo Di’s breath on his neck but his next sentence shook his heart. 

“Actually, somehow, there was a sense of familiarity when I saw that house.”

Mo Di said with a smile, “I feel like I’ve been there in my last life. It felt homely and close. The furnishings look great too, there’s no need to make any changes. Brother, you have to have confidence in your aestheticism…”

Before Mo Di could say anything else, Mu Tian Heng’s arms suddenly tightened around him.

Mo Di turned to look at him. He pressed his nose against Mu Tian Heng’s, “Brother, you scared me.”

Mu Tian Heng hugged Mo Di even harder. He lowered his head and began kissing him. Eventually, Mo Di was kissed until his mind was muddled. By the time Mu Tian Heng had carried him to the bedroom, he had already forgotten what he had wanted to ask him.

…..

Five days later, Mo Di was like an excited kid who went on an outing with his brother for the first time, dragging his luggage and following behind Mu Tian Heng to head to his villa in America.

Even from the outside, Mo Di was really fond of the villa. The flowers in the front garden were particularly large. They clustered together and created a beautiful landscape, full of vitality and warmth.

And Mo Di’s sense of familiarity with the place was getting stronger. It was as though he had once lived here.

“Let’s go in,” Mu Tian Heng pulled Mo Di’s suitcase and said, “This place is usually maintained by a cleaning crew but I’ve sent them away so as not to disturb us for the next few days.”

“Um!” This was exactly what Mo Di wanted. He had never been too fond of having strangers around the house.

As he strolled with Mu Tian Heng into the courtyard, a blue pavilion caught his eyes. He grabbed Mu Tian Heng’s hand and ran towards it. “Brother, this spot is beautiful. When I saw it in the photos, I just wanted to come here to have tea and play chess!”

Mo Di sat on the bench in the pavilion for a while but he did not stay still for long. He turned left to look at the flower garden then turned right to look at the mural on the wall… That scene gradually overlapped with some of Mu Tian Heng’s memories from their past life.

Mu Tian Heng sat and watched Mo Di devotedly with a gentle smile on his face and a slight glow in his eyes.

In fact, Mu Tian Heng did not want to make this place their home. Being here, he couldn’t help but recall the later part of their past lives. To be honest, those memories were too painful for him and at times, it could still make him feel hopelessness and despair.

But he did not expect that when he sent the pictures of his private homes in America to Mo Di, Mo Di had picked this place at first glance. 

Since Mo Di liked it, then he would feel the same. Secondly, he also knew that this place meant a lot to them. It did not matter if the memories from the past were too dark, with Mo Di around, he believed he would be able to view them in a brighter light. They would create new memories to drown out the old ones.

Mu Tian Heng stood up and gave the upbeat Mo Di a kiss on the forehead, then to his nose, lips, neck…

The warm sunshine shone on them and the nearby greenery surrounding them in a soothing fragrance. 

Mo Di was ticklish due to Mu Tian Heng’s kissing and could no longer suppress his laughter. Finally, he was pressed on the table and given a deep kiss on the mouth which rendered him motionless, relenting to Mu Tian Heng’s passionate advances.

TN: So sorry for the missing chapter 126. I think messed up when I merged the chapters (big thanks to Lucias who had kindly pointed this out to me). I will update it soon if I can recover the file, if not please give me a few days to work on it again 🙏🙏🙏

Chapter 124

Edited and Proofread by KitKat

Ever since the Mo family had fallen into their trap, Mo Di had rarely recalled the past. 

What happened in the past was sealed in the depths of his memories. His days were spent working on his career and indulging in his love nest with Mu Tian Heng.

His game company had officially entered the market with Infinite Life as its debut product. At present, it had garnered a hundred and nineteen million sign-ups, breaking the record for the highest number of sign-ups for an upcoming game.

Fans were visiting their website every day to urge them for the early release of Infinite Life.

Since the game competition had ended, due to the copyrights, the games were no longer available online. Fans could not even play the previous chapters to quench their thirst and had to wait painfully for the new releases. 

Mo Di read the posts and smiled. He told Zhao Chun to post on Weibo that the official release date would be on July 15th and gave the fans something to look forward to.

Whether it was the game they were producing or the company itself, many could foresee their successful future. It was predicted that in less than two years, Mo Di’s game company will rise to become one of Hua Xia’s top companies, overtaking many of its predecessors.

This statement had brought about a wave of objections from fans of other game companies who voiced their criticisms over the net. Mo Di just laughed it off but he did not deny it. After all, even with all the adversities in his last life, his company had risen to become one of the top three game companies in Hua Xia. 

In this life, his goal was no longer limited to Hua Xia but the world.

The workload of being a Jing Da student had become heavier as the end of the term approached along with the numerous exams. Mo Di had been too busy to have a proper date with his brother. And so, on the last day of exams, he rushed out of the classroom and headed straight for the gate where a black Maybach had been waiting.

“Brother… umm!”

Before Mo Di could settle down, he was pulled into a powerful embrace and kissed passionately.

After his initial surprise, Mo Di actively countered, cuddling and groping in Mu Tian Heng’s arms while calling out for him between their kisses. 

Mu Tian Heng, who had been dormant for a long time, was dangerously close to losing his control. After kissing him fiercely, he patted Mo Di lightly on the head. Softly he spoke, “You shouldn’t get cocky just because I pamper you too much or I’ll have to do something about it.”

“I’m not scared.” Mo Di raised his head and mischievously sucked on Mu Tian Heng’s Adam’s apple. His eyes shone triumphantly as Mu Tian Heng’s heart was softened with helplessness. He leaned over and planted a deep red hickey on Mo Di’s neck.

“A small punishment.” Mo Di’s eyes widened. It was now summer and he couldn’t cover it!

Mu Tian Heng laughed at the rare look of astonishment on Mo Di’s face. He rubbed his hair and kissed his cheek, “Be good now. No one will ask.”

Mo Di unconvincingly grabbed Mu Tian Heng’s neck and planted a revenge hickey on him, “If someone asks, I’ll just say it’s a mosquito bite.”

“Alright, alright. I’m a big mosquito that only bites my little one,” Mu Tian Heng smiled and said in a pampering voice, making Mo Di’s ears turn red.

He cleared his throat and changed the topic, “Brother, Uncle Song is coming for dinner tonight, should we show off some of our culinary skills?”

“About this, Lai De Si said that he wants to be the main cook today,” Mu Tian Heng said this with much doubt.

“Ha?”

Mo Di hurriedly shook his head, “That’s a bad idea. His fried eggs tasted particularly bad and he always burned the pan while cooking pork. I understand that he wanted to please Uncle Song but his level is just too… Hai.

Mo Di sighed for Lai De Si.

Mu Tian Heng smiled, “It’s alright, let him try. In fact, he’s been practicing in the kitchen for the past two weeks. Yesterday his fried eggs and green pepper pork were somewhat edible.”

“Actually…” Mo Di’s eyes lit up as he thought of a way, “Brother, aren’t there ready-made seasoning packs in the supermarket? Brother Lai De Si can make decent dishes with those. The most important thing is that he is the one who personally made them. Wouldn’t it fix everything?”

Mu Tian Heng: “I have proposed this method but was rejected by him, saying that it lacks sincerity.”

“Sincerity…” Mo Di was speechless, “Alright, let’s leave it to him then.”

When they reached the villa, they could hear the sound of pots and pans clanging in the kitchen. Suan Suan was running frantically towards Mo Di. It stood on its hind legs and grabbed at his knees, all the while with its tail wagging non-stop.

Mo Di picked Suan Suan up and tapped on his tiny nose, “Did you miss me?”

Suan Suan happily stuck out its tongue and continued to shake its tail vigorously.

Thanks to Lai De Si’s exorbitant reminder, Mo Di knew that Song Yu’s favorite dishes were spicy steamed fish, fried shrimps, and braised spareribs. To think that Lai De Si could perfectly cook the spare ribs, that was quite impressive.

Seeing Mo Di’s surprised look, Lai De Si said proudly, “I bought shrimps as well but at the moment, I can’t make Xiao Yu’s favorite fried shrimps. I’ll simply steam it with ginger and vinegar for now. Xiao Yu would still love them!”

Mo Di has had goosebumps at the sight of Lai De Si’s thoughtfulness. He couldn’t help but tease, “How is your relationship coming along? Have you confessed yet?”

Hearing the word ‘confession’, Lai De Si’s face turned beet red. Such a grown man of almost thirty and yet was stuttering at the words of his junior.

“I, I don’t have the courage yet. I’ll wait till my thirtieth birthday to confess. It’s my birthday after all, Xiao Yu might not have the heart to reject me.”

“Thirtieth birthday?”

Mo Di vaguely remembered that Lai De Si was half a year older than his Mu Tian Heng. So his birthday is in August, about two months left.

Mo Di hoped that Lai De Si would succeed. As a matter of fact, he believed that Lai De Si’s effort had not gone unnoticed. If someone whom Song Yu did not like were to shower him with gifts, he would’ve rejected the items, unlike now in which he would offer to return the favor with a meal or a chance for Lai De Si to meet him.

Furthermore, Song Yu already knew about that matter.

While Mo Di was deep in thought, he did not notice the change on Mu Tian Heng’s face when Lai De Si said ’till my thirtieth birthday.’

Although Mu Tian Heng knew Lai De Si was doing his best to please his crush, he himself would also like to cook for Mo Di. After all, it was rare for his little one to return home, he couldn’t possibly let him be Lai De Si’s lab rat. 

Mu Tian Heng headed in to occupy the kitchen and made several dishes: Chilli fish head, Sweet and sour pork, braised beef brisket with tomatoes, and steamed cod. The fragrance alone was enough to make Lai De Si salivate and at the same time, painfully saw the cruel contrast between their dishes.

Mo Di had been helping alongside Mu Tian Heng. From time to time, Mu Tian Heng would lean over and kiss his hair and cheek. The two acting lovey-dovey was like a stab to Lai De Si’s eyes.

He could no longer live in this house as a single dog!

Lai De Si swore that when Yu Yu was finally in his arms, he would return and flaunt their love in front of these two, especially when Mo Di wasn’t back from school. That’ll show Mu Tian Heng, that beast!

…..

At six in the evening, Song Yu arrived on the dot.

The moment the doorbell rang, Lai De Si was like a police dog, dashing out from the kitchen with a broad smile plastered on his face, “Xiao Yu, you’re here.”

Mo Di who was playing with Suan Suan in the living room felt that Lai De Si was only missing a tail.

Mu Tian Heng rubbed his hair and said, “Let’s go.”

“En!” Mo Di nodded.

Song Yu smiled when he saw them. He said to Mo Di, “Has Xiao Di grown taller? You should be about 180cm.” 

“We just had a physical examination a few days ago. I’m at 180.66cm now,” Mo Di said proudly, “My goal is 182cm. I believe I can get to that height.”

“Of course, our Xiao Di is quite extraordinary,” Song Yu said while the two bottles of wine in his hands were taken over by Lai De Si who was buttering up to him. He smiled brightly and said, “Xiao Yu, let me help you with this.”

“Xiao Yu, come in and take a seat in the living room. The food will be ready soon. I’m manning the kitchen today, you should have a taste of my food.”

Looking at the tall and big Lai De Si behaving like a silly puppy, Song Yu couldn’t help feeling sweet. He smiled and said, “Ok.”

Ever since the time Mo Di asked him if he found Lai De Si familiar and if he remembered someone who had secretly watched him every day during his university days, Song Yu had given a lot of thought regarding Lai De Si. Was Xiao Di hinting something to him?

After that, Song Yu kept reminiscing about the redhead who was always at the basketball court watching him for a year. The more he thought about it, the more he found that Lai De Si was indeed quite similar to that kid.

He had spoken to Mo Di about his suspicion and although Mo Di did not confirm, he did not deny it either. Under Mo Di’s subtle implication, Song Yu finally knew where Lai De Si was coming from. He had also stopped turning down his advances and slowly opened up to him. 

His only surprise was that the boy from those years ago still had the same light in his eyes when looking at him. And just like back then, he would still blush at the sight of him, almost like a silly but loyal Tibetan Mastiff.

Every time they interacted, Lai De Si seemed like he was dancing but he was too timid to take another step. Sometimes he wondered if Lai De Si had a tail stuck to his back. If there wasn’t one then he’s definitely missing a tail. 

The silly mutt.

Chapter 123

Mo Liu Gui’s memories returned entirely. 

At the same time, the world that Mo Liu Gui and the system had tampered with had reverted back to its original route, completely reviving the true consciousness of this world.

Although the formal world was able to bring Mo Di back, its power was still suppressed by the tampered world’s consciousness. It was only at this moment that it had fully recovered.

When Mo Liu Gui was busy smashing the stuff in her room, the people who had been mesmerized under the effect of her halo regained their senses one by one. 

Even though they did not know as much as Mo Liu Gui did, did not know that she was a transmigrator, did not know that there was a system, did not know about their past lives, but their logic had returned.

Qin Cheng Yi’s face in prison was as nasty as though he had eaten sh*t.

Despite the fact that he had been crazy over Mo Liu Gui, his true nature was cruel and violent with a disregard for the law as well as human lives. Thinking back to all the things he did for Mo Liu Gui as if he was under a curse, he simply wanted to tear her up!

That rubbish woman must’ve used jiang tou on him!!!

(TN: something like an asian version of voodoo)

Qin Cheng Yi kicked the metal railings of his cell with inconsolable rage. Unfortunately, the noise had disturbed the other inmates, all of whom were psychopathic killers with a complete lack of empathy. They gathered around Qin Cheng Yi and gave him a merciless beating.

Because his cell had been given ‘special privileges’ kindly sponsored by Mu Tian Heng, neither the guards nor the inmates were moved by his bribes.

Qin Cheng Yi had blood all over his face and his eyes were burning with a grudge. He wanted to kill these people as well as Mu Tian Heng and Mo Di!

Of course he hated the bitch who had put him under her curse, but the ones he hated the most were still Mu Tian Heng and Mo Di!

Qin Cheng Yi wanted to turn them all into human sticks and Mo Liu Gui was on top of that list.

Ironically, Mo Liu Gui in the mental hospital had no idea that Qin Cheng Yi had come to hate her so. She was even planning ways to punish him for failing her, she definitely would not be soft hearted!

It had to be said that Mo Liu Gui could really dream.

On the other hand, the Mo family had also felt a sudden paradigm shift.

As Mo Liu Gui’s mother, Ruan Qing Dan really did love her daughter. The love she gave her all these years was not superficial. Even when the eldest and second aunts were cursing at Mo Liu Gui, she still insisted that her darling daughter was innocent.

Towards Mo Di, she only felt a little regret for treating him that way. After all, he was also her own blood. But in no way was she guilt-stricken at the thought of Mo Di because Ruan Qing Dan was exactly how she had raised Mo Liu Gui, selfish and prejudiced. Now that her life was a living hell, wasn’t it all thanks to Mu Tian Heng and Mo Di? So despite regretting that she should’ve treated him better, she hated him for being a heartless beast who could mercilessly destroy his mother’s life!

Mo Shi Hong was the same. Although he knew he shouldn’t have treated Mo Di as such, he still couldn’t help hating him. He did not have any fatherly bond with Mo Di and could only see him as less important than himself.

But compared to Ruan Qing Dan, Mo Shi Hong’s love for Mo Liu Gui had now subsided. He was beginning to develop a sense of aversion towards the daughter that he once loved beyond all sense.

As for the second aunt and the others, they couldn’t wait to skin Mo Liu Gui alive. To them, she was now a witch who had condemned them to hell!!

These people used to hate Mo Di with every fiber in their body but now, that position belonged to Mo Liu Gui. Although they regretted mistreating him, they still hated him for making them suffer.

Amongst them, only Mo San Zhi had kept his calm and did not show any signs of anguish. Even when his mother cursed and swore at Mo Liu Gui and Mo Di while admonishing him and his brothers for defending her all these years, there was no change in his expression.

He quietly went to the guards and told them that he would like to complete some additional tasks for the day. 

It seemed Mo San Zhi was the only one who had gotten back his memories from their last life.

So looking at his parents and elderlies throwing abuses at Mo Di, he could not empathize with them. Towards Mo Di, he only had remorse and not a bit of hate.

He could vividly remember the later part of his last life and how Mo Di had suffered. It was many times more painful than what any of them had been through. And there was no one to share his tortures nor was he given any choices.

He could vaguely remember how the whole family had come together at dinner and discussed Mo Di’s torture plan. They ate and drank while boasting how they would teach Mo Di a lesson through ‘creative’ means.

As such, none of them were innocent.

Mo San Zhi knew all their sufferings were justly deserving; rather than being revenged upon, it was more apt to say that they were receiving their retribution.

After all, didn’t that sister of his say in the video evidence about a previous life? She had most likely regained her memories… So Mo Di was probably the same.

Otherwise, how could there be such a big difference in outcome?

Maybe because the spell had been lifted, the memories of Mo Di had become clearer in his mind.

He often reminisced about their childhood. In fact, Mo Di had always been an obedient little brother. When he was just a small child, he would tag behind them with his short legs. Because he had been despised from the day he was born, he had always wished that they would come to accept him. He would often use his hard-earned pocket money to buy gifts in hopes to please them. Oftentimes, he would unconditionally serve them drinks and food. Whenever he had heard a joke from his kindergarten, he would treat it like treasure and try to make them laugh. 

But how did they treat this little brother?

They had kicked him and told him to scram.

When Mo Di was a little older, the beatings they gave him increased and eventually became too many to count. Once, it had almost crippled his leg. Thinking back, he was really barbaric. 

How much they had pampered Mo Liu Gui was how much they had tortured Mo Di. The moment that she was unhappy, regardless if it was Mo Di’s fault or not, they would all pin it on him, claiming that it was he who had made her upset.

The countless punches and kicks they threw at him, the outrageous scoldings, and finally forcing him into the asylum where he was inflicted with endless torture….

None of them were innocent, their current miserable state was well deserved!

In his last life, his older brother had taken his kidney and let him die on the operating table. Maybe that was a small redemption so he could remember the past which had allowed him to stop hating this little brother.

At the same time, he had one more regret.

He regretted how he had treated Song Yu.

He had always been a coward and also a hypocrite. But he did sincerely like Song Yu.

In the beginning, he had deceived Song Yu into becoming his closet lover and after he died, he dared not reveal that Song Yu was a man. He even used that as a stepping stone for his career. Thinking back, he was truly despicable.

At that time, he was concerned about losing his inheritance but above all, he was scared that Mo Liu Gui would turn to hate him. 

In his heart, Mo Liu Gui was not just a sister, she was a god. If his ‘god’ doesn’t like him, it was as though the sky was falling down on him.

And yet, in this life, after his secrets were exposed, in order to have his revenge, he had done unspeakable things. In conclusion, he was probably not a good person to begin with. The ‘spell’ only magnified his hypocrisy and dark thoughts. So no matter what, he was not innocent and could never be compatible with Song Yu.

Song Yu must be a lot happier now. There were sure to be suitors attracted to him and they would all treat him right, unlike a coward like himself.

As for his little brother, he also hoped that Mu Tian Heng would always be good to him and if possible, it would be better for him to forget his past life. After all, what he had been through was not meant for anyone to experience, even if it existed only in memories, it was still a form of torture.

After they boarded the cruise ship, any trace of the Mo family was wiped clean by Mu Tian Heng.

The original owner of this luxurious cruise ship was Wen Guo Chao, one of the top five richest in Hong Kong. He had always wanted a chance to work with Mu Tian Heng but it never came. So this time when Mu Tian Heng approached him for help and offered him an incredible deal in return, he agreed without a second thought.

Mu Tian Heng not only offered him three big business ventures but also a billion yuan as gratitude.

Although Wen Guo Chao did not lack money, he wouldn’t say no to a billion yuan handed to him in cash. He knew that Mu Tian Heng was one of the world’s top three richest but he did not expect him to be this magnanimous!

Furthermore, doing business with Mu Tian Heng would only result in him benefiting, whether it was the profit he would receive or the worldwide connections he would be getting.

Therefore, with all willingness, he immediately handed Mu Tian Heng the entire gambling cruise ship that was ‘Dong Fang Ge Hao’, the place where the Mo family members were currently locked up.

As for Steward Zhao, he was an ex-special forces soldier who worked as Mu Tian Heng’s old housekeeper in America and had watched him grow up. He was a highly dependable and intelligent person. Asking him to ‘look after’ the Mo family was the most suitable decision.

Most importantly, Steward Zhao was a very trustworthy man who had absolute faith in Mu Tian Heng. He treated him like his own child, never doubting his actions, only faithfully doing what Mu Tian Heng requested. He was Mu Tian Heng’s most reliable confidant.

However, even if Steward Zhao did not ask, Mu Tian Heng still explained to him the things that the Mo family did in this life and the last life, of course, some information had already been filtered.

Steward Zhao was instantly enraged. He flew to Hua Xia the very same day.

With a slight change in attire, he became the current head honcho of the ‘Dong Fang Ge Hao’.

…..

On the third day of the Mo family’s ‘incarceration’, Mo Liu Gui, who was living far back in the capital, finally realized that something was wrong.

No one from the Mo family had called her for three days and when she had dialed any one of them, it had never gotten through. At first, the line just rang while no one picked up. Later, it had been completely unreachable. Something was definitely amiss!

Mo Liu Gui was beginning to panic.

She grabbed the nurse who was tending to her and demanded to meet the director. 

Needless to say, Liu Cui rejected her request.

Mo Liu Gui was insulted. To think, on top of turning her down, Liu Cui even dared to block her way. In a tantrum, she slapped Liu Cui with considerable force.

But when Mo Liu Gui was about to slap her a second time, Liu Cui grabbed her arm with a death grip. Although skinny and old, the laborious work through the years had trained her physically. Someone as feeble as Mo Liu Gui was not her opponent. 

She said to Mo Liu Gui with patience in her voice, “Miss Mo, you’re mentally ill, I won’t hold it against you but you have to behave. If you want to see the director, he’ll be here in a minute to have a look at your illness.”

“You’re the one who’s sick! You old and ugly hag! You’re crazy!”

Mo Liu Gui’s unease was getting intense. If she could not get in touch with anyone from the Mo family, who would get her out of here?!

She had to find Director Zhao. He was someone arranged by Qin Cheng Yi, he had to help her or else, Qin Cheng Yi would have a bone to pick with him!

If he’s smart, he’ll know what to do.

Zhao Chuan Ling was indeed a smart man. Which was why he had ordered Liu Cui to confiscate all of Mo Liu Gui’s mobile devices when the time was ripe.

Wearing his white doctor’s coat, he opened the medical diagnosis previously made for Mo Liu Gui and logged in the treatments he had prepared for her.

Retribution had descended on the Mo family. 

Some were imprisoned, one was locked in a mental hospital, and the rest were on a cruise ship reliving the torment that Mo Di had been through.

As for Qin Cheng Yi, the sentence he received included more than the murder charges. Evidence for his previous crimes was also revealed, piling up his imprisonment to that of twenty years without a chance of parole.

Mo Di personally went to watch Qin Cheng Yi’s trial. Seeing him lashing out in extreme anger and breaking his shoulder while being restrained, Mo Di couldn’t help smiling.

Mu Tian Heng looked at Mo Di then gave his hair a rub. “Shall we head home?”

“Ok!”

Mo Di’s eyes beamed and a little dimple appeared on his left cheek. He tightened his grip on Mu Tian Heng’s hands.

Mo Di was in absolute joy but frankly, he still felt a bit surreal. It was as though his rebirth hadn’t been that long ago and the oath to exact revenge on the Mo family and Qin Cheng Yi was still fresh in his mind. 

But now, these people already had the ending that they deserved. 

When Qin Cheng Yi was sentenced to twenty years in jail, his heart was light as never before. Like a weight that was pressing on it finally disappeared. 

From now on, he would not think of his past life again.

The tortures, the abuse, the unfairness, and the life that saw the loss of all hope, he would delete them all from his head.

He would live his new life in happiness and comfort along with his beloved and friends, free to do what he wishes and achieve greater heights in his career!

He had once been pulled into an abyss but now he had finally reached the light. 

There are karmic retributions according to heaven’s law, an old saying that Mo Di had come to believe in staunchly.

But this was something Mo Liu Gui would never be able to accept.

After having her phone and computer taken away, Mo Liu Gui finally realized that something was wrong. She went ballistic but it was hopeless. Locked up in that tiny room, she was refrained from going anywhere else.

Every day, the only person she got to see was Liu Cui!

Mo Liu Gui cursed at everyone. She hated the incompetent Mo family, hated Qin Cheng Yi for failing to help her, but the one she hated the most was still Mo Di.

In her mind, she constantly imagined the countless ways she would torture and kill him! The violent thoughts occupied her head and she almost went mad.

Until one day, the same day that Qin Cheng Yi was sent to serve his sentence, a certain seal in her head was broke. Her sight turned black and she fainted.

When she woke up, Mo Liu Gui stared unblinkingly at the window. Her face gradually turned distorted and she went berserk, smashing and throwing the things inside the room.

The memories from her previous life had all come back to her.

She was supposed to be the female lead of this story, the protagonist of this world!

And Mo Di, he wasn’t supposed to know anything. Albeit, he was reborn, but he shouldn’t have known that this world was inside a book.

Most importantly, she was not a native to this world, she was a transmigrator and yes, she had a system!

A transmigrator armed with a system that could captivate anyone on top of being born in a rich family and knowing the plot by heart… With these many advantages, she should’ve been the prizewinner, the center of attention, the foundation of this world!

She was meant to be loved and pampered by everyone!!!

And this was what happened to ninety-nine percent of her past life but in the end, her beautiful life was destroyed by a madman! Everything was ruined!

It was hard enough for her to get another life but this life was many times worse…

Mo Liu Gui was almost suffocated with hatred. 

She was originally an ordinary office lady who had to work day and night for a living. Thanks to a windfall, she was tied to a system and was brought into a novel that she absolutely hated.

This novel was a boy’s love novel with that brother of hers and Mu Tian Heng as the protagonists. Because the main theme was about games and career-building, the novel became popular and was adapted into a TV series. Although there would not be any intimate scenes, this was the very first primetime series to depict a gay couple!

It was just disgusting!

How could this kind of nauseating relationship gain popularity?! How could they even think of broadcasting this on television?!!

It really made her sick to her stomach!

But what she did not expect was that she would transmigrate into that very novel and was attached to a system.

This system was simply amazing. It not only made people mesmerized with her at first sight but shared the same disgust towards homosexuality as her.

She was very pleased with the system. It had capabilities beyond her imagination, showering her with a powerful halo from the moment she was in her mother’s womb.

As she grew up and garnered more affection from the people around her, the system got stronger and intensified its ability to spellbind the general masses!

On the other hand, Mo Di was the total opposite. His life was filled with misery. But Mo Liu Gui believed that he deserved it. His homosexuality was wrong and his bad life was atonement.

More importantly, Mo Di was immune to her halo and the system, he couldn’t possibly be a good person. And later, he even dared to run away from the Mo family. She was planning to let him off since he had gotten rid of his homosexuality but he dared to refuse her kindness and even pushed her away!

Mo Liu Gui did not realize this but her mind had long been distorted. The excessive praise, the bias, the double standards and the unreasonable pampering had morphed into what one would perceive as a norm.

In fact, she was living in a twisted world of her own creation!

Remembering her beautiful past life, the memory of her wedding day gradually came back. It was the wedding of the century, grand and romantic. The whole of Hua Xia, and even the world, was broadcasting this event and congratulating her.

It was also the day that Mo Di died.

Because Mo Di, the protagonist of the novel, no longer existed, the system had completed its task of altering this world. It was time for it to leave. At that time, it had asked Mo Liu Gui if she wanted to return to her original world or stay in this one till old age. 

She picked the latter without a second thought.

What a joke. She had countless people who adored her and her life was as beautiful as it could be. Only an idiot would choose to go back.

The system had expected her answer so it disappeared right after.

And then her perfect life went on with countless people loving and pampering her… 

Until she was forty.

She remembered going to the set for a variety show where she was attacked by a lunatic! Her stomach was stabbed, her face was disfigured and her eyes were blinded!

Next was a scene she never wanted to recall. She was constantly suffering in a hospital bed while the Mo, Qin, and Ye family had all met with demise. Qin Cheng Yi and Ye Cheng Feng who had always shielded her were in prison. Their families, together with the Mo family, fell overnight and their wealth dwindled into nothingness. 

It was as though the world suddenly fell and she was left with nothing!

In the end, she was set on fire by the second aunt and that was how her life had concluded!

The memories all came flooding back. Mo Liu Gui could not control her anger and yelled. 

She refused to accept this! Why had her last life turned out that way?! Why?!

And in this life, her downfall had come even earlier!

Didn’t it say that her halo would not disappear?! That system was a liar!!!

Mo Liu Gui simply could not accept everything that had happened to her. Anger overshadowed her reasoning and she went on a rampage, destroying everything in the room…

Just like a mental patient.

But Mo Liu Gui had been right about one thing:

Mo Di did not know about the novel he was living in.

That was because the one he read was not the same one that Mo Liu Gui had read in her original world. It was a novel that after she and the system had viciously tampered with, turned into a completely different novel under the title ‘Everyone is Crazy for Me’. With the system’s accumulated power, this novel was spread online in another world, different from the one Mo Liu Gui had hailed from.

With the appeal of a Mary Sue character, it had attracted many readers with similar thought patterns to Mo Liu Gui.

However, while many loved the novel, more were those who strongly abhorred it. They were disgusted with the female lead who used Mo Di as a stepping stone and her thoughtless followers who had no bottom line.

They voiced their opinions over major networking sites and eventually garnered a lot of support in the form of fanfiction. Many wanted a different ending for Mo Di.

As more people supported this notion, the fanfictions became more popular, ultimately attracting the praise of big-name celebrities which further promoted this movement. And as more people wrote and supported this version of the novel, it became a force powerful enough to awaken the original consciousness of this book.

This consciousness then went on to absorb the goodwill collected by Mu Tian Heng through his various charities in Mo Di’s name and finally… 

It was strong enough to give Mo Di a second life.

Chapter 121

Edited and Proofread by KitKat

A hundred and eighty million…

(TN: Haha I finally bothered to check these numbers, it’s about 27.65 million USD)

Even if the Mo family sold off all their organs, they could not come up with even one-tenth of this amount.

The owner of this luxurious gambling cruise ship was most unlikely someone with a kind heart. They would not bat an eye seeing them being fed to the fishes.

The Mo family members panicked as their faces turned paperwhite. They shivered uncontrollably. The three Mo ladies cried till their tears smeared the mascara, looking quite horrifying.

Mo Er Qian tried his best to stabilize his voice and talk some logic into the guards but they all treated him like air.

Not long after, the tiny storeroom door creaked open. A middle-aged man wearing a traditional Tang suit walked in with a smile on his face.

The muscular bodyguards immediately greeted him as Steward Zhao.

“You’ve worked hard,” Steward Zhao nodded then sat down on a stool that one of the guards had brought over. He fidgeted with the two walnuts in his hand.

“These are the people who owe 180 million in gambling debts?”

“This is a scam! You all set us up!”

Before the bodyguard could reply, Mo Wu Hang cried out, “You’re breaking the law! This is a criminal offense! This is against the law!” His eyes were raging but his voice was shaking.

“The law?”

Steward Zhao laughed heartily, “It’s a common principle to pay your debts, where’s the crime in that? Moreover, this is the high seas, I’d like to know which country’s laws we’re breaking?”

“Shut up,” Mo Er Qian cast Mo Wu Hang a glare then turned to Steward Zhao and said, “Mr. Zhao, I think there has been a misunderstanding.”

“A misunderstanding?”

“Yes. we’ve been set up. We don’t actually owe 180 million in gambling debt. I hope you can investigate this matter thoroughly. Your people may have colluded with someone from the outside. Considering that those who come here are all prestigious, if this were to spread, you might lose all your patronage. This will gravely affect your business, wouldn’t it?”

“A set up?” Steward Zhao raised his brows and laughed, “You’re a very eloquent person, and also quite skillful at stirring up dissension. Pity… It’s not persuasive enough. I’ve seen too many who tried all sorts of ways to revoke their debts. If you don’t pay 180 million today, I’m afraid I can’t let you leave this ship.”

“What are you going to do?!”

The second aunt remembered some of the films she had seen, causing her to scream in fright, “This is against the law! Against the law!”

“Tut… It seems you have no intention of paying this debt,” Steward Zhao smiled and signaled to the two bodyguards, “One finger is ten thousand. There are eight people here, let’s just collect eight hundred thousand in interest first.”

“Yes.” Two bodyguards immediately took a cleaver and went to Mo Shi Hong. One picked him up by the collar and the other grabbed his hand.

Mo Shi Hong was shaking like a chicken when he was pulled from the ground. He struggled and screamed, “This is a crime! You’re committing a crime!”

The knife rose and came down. A little finger stained with blood rolled on the ground.

Mo Shi Hong howled uncontrollably. His whole body shook and twitched uncontrollably.

The other Mo family members cried and screamed in horror.

Although they knew that they would not get out of this unscathed, they did not foresee the severity of the situation they were in. Witnessing the swiftly chopped finger rolling on the ground, they were immediately hit with the cruel reality as fear took over their whole body.

Under Mo Wu Hang was a pool of liquid, he had peed due to fright.

Seeing Mo Wu Hang as such, the bodyguard advanced towards him, intending to make him his next victim. Mo Wu Hang struggled as he howled in tears and snot, begging Steward Zhao to spare him, “Steward Zhao, you’re a good man so please spare me. Please, I beg you! We’ll pay you! We’ll pay you! We’ll do any work to pay you back! Please don’t chop our hands!”

Everyone else except Mo Er Qian knelt down and begged, “That’s right, we’ll be your slaves to pay you back! Please spare us, spare us…”

Steward Zhao’s eyes swept across the Mos and smiled. He then looked at Mo Er Qian and beckoned the bodyguards.

The two bodyguards let Mo Wu Hang go and went to Mo Er Qian. One pressed him down and the other raised the knife. Mo Er Qian had turned pale as a sheet and could no longer hide his fear.

“AH!!!” Mo Er Qian screamed as the knife came down.

Steward Zhao fidgeted with the walnuts in his hand. He looked at the Mos and said, “Honestly, I’m not a very unreasonable person. This debt, as long as you can afford to pay it, I naturally wouldn’t touch your fingers, toes, eyes, kidneys, stomach and whatever else.”

The Mos were shaking even worse than before. This man… He was going to cut off more than just their fingers!!!

“But I don’t believe that you’re able to repay this sum of money. The Mo family of Hua Xia had long collapsed, am I right? It’s impossible for you to even pay back 20 million so how are you going to pay me back 180 million?”

Steward Zhao shook his head and smirked, “It’s a pipe dream if you think I’ll let you go but that doesn’t mean I won’t give you a chance to live. If you’re obedient and determined to pay this debt, alright, I’ll show you a way.”

“What is it? Steward Zhao just say the word, as long as you don’t chop off our hands and feet and take our organs, we’ll do anything. We’ll do any kind of work! We’ll be your slaves! Steward Zhao, please…”

“There’s no need for you to be slaves.”

Steward Zhao looked at Mo Shi Hong with a sinister smile, “Since I’m not a cold-blooded person, I’ve made a list of tasks you can do to help you repay the debt. Once you’ve completed each of them, I’ll subtract the corresponding amount from the total sum that you owed. But there’s one rule, every day, you have to be able to pay back 200 thousand or else, I’ll have to chop off one of your fingers. Regarding this, I’ll be lenient and let you decide among yourselves who will get the special treatment.”

Steward Zhao clapped his hands and the bodyguard behind him took out a piece of paper and showed it to the Mos.

Mo Shi Hong picked it up and after looking through, his face turned red with rage! 

This man was inhuman! He’s not even worthy to be called a man! He’s worse than an animal!

How could anyone be this cruel?!

The others came to have a look and all their faces turned ghastly! They trembled in hate, crying and swearing at Steward Zhao, “You’re not human. You’re an animal! Heaven is blind! You’ll die a horrible death!”

What was listed weren’t tasks at all. It was simply ways to kill them!

(TN: Originally, the next paragraph is a description of the ‘tasks’ but I’m just going to list it like a spa brochure~ LOL)

A beating – 10 000¥

Confined with a violent mental patient – 10 000¥

3-day confinement with no food and water – 20 000¥

Electric shock session – 20 000¥

Iron needles to ten fingers – 25 000¥

Each task had to be completed at least once every week. Otherwise, everyone would be forced to do it three times without being able to earn any credits for their debts.

Furthermore, there was an interest rate they had to pay which included food and using the toilet. To be exempted from this, they would have to kowtow, beg, and bark like a dog…

Steward Zhao is simply not human. Even animals are better than him! How could a person be this vicious?! This cruel! Who could endure such tortures?! Who could endure it?!!!

Who? 

Mo Di did.

Mo Di not only had to endure it all by himself but what he had suffered was many times worse. And there was no one to take turns with him in a seemingly endless loop of tortures. The Mos had each other to share the pain while Mo Di had to endure alone. Compared to him, they had it easy.

The Mos had lost the will to argue. Or rather, they dared not do so. Surrounding them were stout men holding knives while they were like fish waiting to be slaughtered!

They did not want to do any of the tasks but if they didn’t, they would have to face worse treatments! Starting with their fingers being cut off, then to their toes, spleen, stomach, kidney…

They didn’t want to be handicapped, much less lose their lives!

They were now fully aware that this was not about the money. Whether or not they were willing to pay their debts, Steward Zhao would still enforce this set of rules upon them.

Steward Zhao moved the walnuts in his hand. Looking at their eyes teeming with rage, hate, and despair but not daring to retaliate, he smiled.

“I’m glad you’ve finally understood the rules. There’s one more thing I’d like to emphasize, according to this payment method, if you can do the bare minimum required every day, in exactly five years from today, you’ll be able to pay off all your debts and interests. Everyone buck up, your future is still bright!”

(EN: Satire is the best form of comedy! ( ̄▽ ̄))

Steward Zhao smiled and continued, “Alright, now that we’re clear. Let us begin. Shall we start off with the highest paying task? Who among you will go first? Do you want to draw lots or volunteer?”

“Still asleep? It’s ok, don’t bother. She can get up whenever she wants. You can bring the food to her by then,” Zhao Chuan Ling put on his glasses and typed something on his laptop before closing it.

“Also if she throws a tantrum, you can just ignore her. If she comes at you then you can leave the room.”

“Alright, I’ll keep it in mind,” Liu Cui nodded.

“You can go out now, I’ll call you if something comes up.”

“Yes, director,” Liu Cui went out and closed the door.

Liu Cui was someone who owed Mu Tian Heng a debt. Some time ago, he had paid for her son’s medical fees and offered her a job. The greatest wish in her life was that her son would get well and repay Mu Tian Heng’s kindness. 

After Liu Cui left, Zhao Chuan Ling dialed a number on his phone.

“Hello, Chairman Mu.”

“Director Zhao, I was just about to call you, what a coincidence,” Mu Tian Heng’s voice came from the other end. 

“It’s about time I report to you,” Zhao Chuan Ling smiled broadly, “Mo Liu Gui had stayed with us for one night. She hasn’t gotten up yet.” 

“Is that so? It seems she’s sleeping pretty well,” Mu Tian Heng thought of how his Mo Di was tortured day and night till he went mad and couldn’t hold back the enmity in his tone.

“Director Zhao, please do not forget to give her a check-up soon. Since she was already admitted to your hospital, you’ll have to treat her illness with care, otherwise, it’ll be a waste of the Mo family’s money.”

“Of course, of course. Now that she’s a patient of our hospital, we have to give her proper treatment,” Zhao Chuan Ling answered without any qualms. “In a few days, I’ll give her a diagnosis and prepare her for treatment. But…”

Zhao Chuan Ling was still queasy. The Qin family was still around and even though the Mo family was in shambles, Mo Er Qian was still someone with a strong voice; in case one of them caused any trouble…

How could Mu Tian Heng not understand his concerns? He said with a smile, “Director Zhao, you don’t have to worry. Whether it’s the Qin or Mo family, I will clean them up one by one. As for you… All you have to do is to give out treatments.”

“Of course I believe in your capabilities,” Zhao Chuan Ling chuckled and showed his loyalty, “Chairman Mu, have a look at the diagnosis I gave her. Should I start her treatment or move her to a different ward?”

“After you’ve issued her medical report, I will tell you what to do next.”

“…”

After hanging up the phone, Mu Tian Heng saw Mo Di yawning beside him. He rubbed his head and said, “Sleepy? Why don’t you go back to bed?”

“No need, brother, I’m fine.” Mo Di and Mu Tian Heng got up at 4:30 a.m. when they got a certain message and had to revise their plans.

Mo Di said so but he yawned again. To avoid being pestered about going to bed by Mu Tian Heng, he changed the topic, “Brother, Qin Cheng Yi’s sentence will be announced in a few days. Although Qin Guang Jie couldn’t help him, I’m sure he’ll want to give him a comfortable life in prison. So regarding that matter, what should we do?”

“You won’t have to worry about this. I’ve already made arrangements.” Mu Tian Heng saw through Mo Di but did not point it out. He put a cup of milk in his hand and continued, “Qin Cheng Yi can only dream about living his life like before. It’s a murder charge, with the kind of convicts he is going to live with, it can only be hell.”

Hearing this, Mo Di knew that Mu Tian Heng had already been in touch with the warden and people involved to ensure that Qin Cheng Yi would ‘enjoy’ his prison life. Mo Di then talked about something else, “The Mo family should not be a problem now. Without Qin Cheng Yi, they’re particularly easy to deal with.”

Those that remained in the Mo family, other than the three housewives, only Mo Er Qian and Mo Shi Qiang were still somewhat difficult to suppress. 

“That’s why we should put Mo Wu Hang, that blockhead, to good use.”

Mu Tian Heng closed his laptop and gave Mo Di a kiss on the forehead, “Trust me, it’ll be done soon.”

Mo Di hugged Mu Tian Heng and his heart was never more at peace. He nudged the tip of his head at Mu Tian Heng and said, “Brother, do you think I’ve grown taller? I should be about 1.8 meters tall now! Maybe even 1.81!”

“Yes, you’ve grown taller. My Mo Di is growing fast.” Mu Tian Heng sounded supportive but his tone was that of coaxing a child. He then picked Mo Di up and put him on the bed, “Which is why you have to sleep more. Now, go to bed and you’re not allowed to argue.”

This day, another ‘acquaintance’ of Qin Cheng Yi’s came to the Mo family.

The person called himself Bai Duan and claimed that he was sent by Qin Cheng Yi to take care of the Mo family. He had been in contact with Mo Er Qian before and helped him with Mo Liu Gui’s case, as such, the Mo family naturally trusted him.

Bai Duan told them in confidence that because Qin Cheng Yi knew that the funds he had transferred to Mo Er Qian to help Miss Mo were almost emptied, he had prepared another hefty sum for them to better serve Miss Mo. It was in a private account and couldn’t be transferred, they would have to personally withdraw it.

The moment they heard his words, Mo Shi Hong and the others were immediately excited. They insisted on going to get the money with him. Even the ladies of the family fully supported the idea, only Mo Er Qian remained silent.

When Bai Duan saw his attitude, he focused his attention on the other members. He elaborated how large the sum of money was and how they would be able to move away from this dump and live in a better place. He then took out a ‘keepsake’ from Qin Cheng Yi and gave it to Mo Wu Hang.

How could the Mo family ever doubt him now? This was someone sent by Qin Cheng Yi and had helped them a lot before. 

Everyone tried to persuade Mo Er Qian to agree, proposing that the money was for Mo Liu Gui to have a better life and to prepare lest something happened to the falsified medical report. 

After considering their arguments, Mo Er Qian finally agreed. When it came to Mo Liu Gui, he was easily swayed. 

The next evening, Bai Duan took the Mo family members to a certain city in the southernmost region.

At first, only Mo Wu Hang, Mo Shi Hong, and Mo Shi Qian were required to go but Mo Er Qian was not at ease so he went with them. As for the ladies, it had been a long time since they entered a high-class venue and were tempted at the prospect that they’ll be living on a cruise ship. They couldn’t help but want to return to the days when they could still afford all those luxuries.

And since everyone was going, Mo San Zhi couldn’t just stay at home by himself. So in the end, Bai Duan succeeded in taking everyone to the plane.

When Mu Tian Heng heard this, he sneered. It seems even heaven was helping him.

After getting off the plane, they then boarded a steamship and set off into the sea…

It was then that the Mo family realized that they had been offered to board the Dong Fang Ge Hao, the most famous luxury gambling cruise ship that was only available to the most distinguished people. Other than to refill their supplies, this ship hardly ever docked.

The Mo family members showed off their invitation and excitedly followed Bai Duan.

Although the Qin family’s fortune was common knowledge to them, with local and overseas casinos, they did not know that even this grand establishment was under Qin Cheng Yi’s control!!!

This was too much of an eye-opener.

The lowest bet in this place was ten million and the highest could exceed hundreds of millions. And it seemed this was how Qin Cheng Yi was planning to transfer the money to them!

Mo Wu Hang was so excited that his hands were trembling.

The ladies changed into branded cheongsams and dressed up elegantly. With graceful steps, they strode to the diner and got themselves a glass of premium champagne.

Mo Shi Qiang, Mo Shi Hong, and Mo Wu Hang also changed into classic suits and followed Bai Duan to get chips from the dealer.

Bai Duan took out thirty million worth of chips and passed them to Mo Wu Hang and the others. He then whispered, “Master Qin has already arranged everything. This thirty million will surely multiply into a lot more. Master Qin had intended for you to earn over two hundred million…”

“I got it, I got it,” Mo Wu Hang was getting impatient, “So shall we start gambling now?”

“My friend, what’s the hurry?” Bai Duan patted him on the shoulder, “Why don’t you enjoy what this place has to offer now that you’re here?”

Mo Wu Hang was about to nod his head when Mo Er Qian interrupted, “No, get the money first.”

“Haha, alright, alright,” Bai Duan smiled and nodded, “Let’s start with this table first. Make about fifty million then we’ll move on to the next one.”

…..

Once they started, the gambling went on for six days and seven nights.

At first, the Mo family felt as though they had landed in heaven. Not only were there good food and wine, but the service was also excellent. On top of that, they were on a winning streak. They had made more than twice of what Qin Cheng Yi had given them!

The Mo family had now fully trusted this reliable person that Qin Cheng Yi sent to help them out.

They were able to enjoy the beautiful scenery, listen to live music, watch skillful performances, and have good food and wine whenever they wanted. Mo Wu Hang felt that such a life was even more enjoyable than the one he had before the Mo family fell.

He did not want to go back at all! No one would shun such pleasures in life!

Unfortunately…

After enjoying their lives to the fullest, what awaited them was not the money Qin Cheng Yi promised but a devastating bolt from the blue!

On the seventh day, it was almost like the world had turned its back against them, causing them to owe a hundred and eighty million in gambling debt!!!

The Mo family refused to believe it. They thought there was some sort of mistake but Bai Duan was nowhere to be found and what greeted them was a group of bodyguards carrying wooden sticks. They did not give the Mos any chance to state their case before tying them up and demanding a payment!

The other gamblers present were no strangers to such a scene. Paying for losing bets was an unalterable principle of gambling. As for what methods the casino used to extract the debts was not their concern. They couldn’t see or rather, they couldn’t care less.

The eight Mo family members were throwing abuses in the beginning but when they were locked up in a storeroom at the bottom of the ship with knives pointed at their throats, they quietened down and began to shiver. Mo Wu Hang was frozen with fear.

Only Mo Er Qian could maintain a certain degree of calmness but his back was drenched with cold sweat. He realized that they were most likely tricked, that Bai Duan was not the person Qin Cheng Yi had arranged to help them!

Or rather… He was Qin Cheng Yi’s underling in the beginning but was later bought over by someone else!!!

Chapter 119

Edited and Proofread by KitKat

If things were like in the past, the Mo family would have already sent this ‘acquaintance’ off with a brutal beating. But now, no matter how agitated they were, they dared not do anything rash.

Because they were scared. Scared that the man would turn himself in to alleviate his crime.

In fact, this was a little scheme set up by Mo Di.

If they refused to send Mo Liu Gui to a mental hospital, then he would reveal her falsified diagnosis and increase her sentence to at least seven to eight years. All in all, the curtain was closing and Mo Di would never give Mo Liu Gui the chance to escape.

Mo Liu Gui was terrified. She saw that the rest of the family were in silence and panicked. Tears filled her eyes and in her unstable mood, she cursed at the ‘acquaintance’ and tried to chase him out.

Ruan Qing Dan hated the man as well but she knew where they stood and dared not offend him. She held Mo Liu Gui back and said, “Oh daughter, my good daughter, please calm down, alright? Mom will not send you to the mental hospital so stop making a scene…”

The eldest and second aunts did not accompany the others to pick Mo Liu Gui up. They had stayed at home but hearing the conversation, they could easily tell what had happened. They both carried dark thoughts towards Mo Liu Gui, especially the second aunt. She knew that Mo Liu Gui’s diagnosis would definitely have her son’s handiwork work in it. If this matter were to be exposed…

Wouldn’t her son be implicated as well?!

The second aunt began to fret.

Advertisements

She looked at Mo Liu Gui and said in a deliberately ambiguous tone, “Xiao Gui, I know you’ve always been a smart girl since you were little. You should know which is the better choice for you, right? Either be convicted of attempted murder and get an eight years sentence or go live in a hospital Qin Cheng Yi had arranged for you as a vacation. You know what to choose, don’t you?”

“And I also know that you’re very sensible and kind. You won’t knowingly cause your family any troubles, right? Furthermore, there are people who took great risks to get you out. If you’re selfish and refused to go to the mental hospital, aren’t you just repaying their kindness with malice? And Er Qian had been toiling away these past few days for you, you can’t just let his efforts go to waste. If this matter comes to light, you’ll bring down a lot of people with you!”

“Mom, what are you saying?” Mo Er Qian saw Mo Liu Gui’s tears falling and with annoyance, said to the second aunt, “Stop causing anymore trouble, will you?”

The second aunt was flabbergasted. Fearing that her son would refuse to send Mo Liu Gui away, she could no longer maintain the superfluous courtesy and bluntly said, “Are you stupid, huh?! Xiao Gui has already been suspected, if you don’t send her there, what else can you do? You’d rather drag everyone down with you when this matter is exposed?!”

With that, the second aunt looked at Mo Liu Gui again and said, “Xiao Gui, whether it’s for your own good or your brother’s, the right choice is to avoid the limelight. Do you really want to go to jail and destroy the people who cared for you? Xiao Gui, as a human, you must have a conscience.”

“Sister-in-law, what are you saying? Why are you harassing my daughter?! Do you think we’re all dead?” Ruan Qing Dan glared at the second aunt with angry eyes.

“Harassing your daughter? Let me ask you, how many times has your daughter brought trouble to this family? This time, if you don’t send her to the hospital, she’s going to get my son into trouble. If she’s imprisoned and my son is also caught, no one can help her anymore! When that happens, the most miserable one will be your daughter!”

Seeing the situation, the eldest aunt chimed in, “Sister-in-law, I know you’re not happy about this but Xiao Gui should really be kept out of sight for now. There’s still Er Qian to take care of her and the place has been prepared for by Cheng Yi, it’ll be just like a holiday. She can come back when things are fine. Otherwise, she will receive a heavier sentence and there will be no one to support her from the outside, isn’t that just worse off? You have to think carefully!”

Ruan Qing Dan hugged Mo Liu Gui and cried, “Oh my daughter, why is your life so tragic? My Xiao Gui…” 

Mo Liu Gui was also crying her eyes out but she was not dumb, she too knew which was the better choice.

But she’s not willing at all!

Mo Liu Gui was indignant and resentful from the bottom of her heart. She hated the incompetent Mo family but the one she hated the most was Mo Di. She really regretted not stabbing him to death when he was still tied up in the storeroom!

Why didn’t she just kill him herself and place the blame on the storeroom keeper?! If so, she wouldn’t have to face so much misery!!!

…..

No matter how unwilling they were to send her away, the Mo family still decided to do so.

The hospital Mo Liu Gui would be staying in was a private hospital that Qin Cheng Yi had already contacted.

This exclusive hospital was located in the suburbs and had luxurious rooms connected to beautiful courtyards. There were two types of patients living in this place. One was the actual mental cases whose families wanted a peaceful environment for them and the other was like Mo Liu Gui who had to stay here due to the insanity plea.

The day Mo Liu Gui was sent off, she had cried profusely and so did Ruan Qing Dan. Mo Shi Hong was both heartbroken for her and outraged at Mo Di, cursing and swearing at him.

The hospital director, Zhao Chuan Ling, personally went to greet them. He had ensured Mo Er Qian and Qin Cheng Yi that Mo Liu Gui would be living in the best environment and receive the best services. Seeing his hospitality, Mo Er Qian was relieved to leave Mo Liu Gui in his care. She would only need to stay there for about a week and then they could take her home.

Zhao Chuan Ling was an elderly man over sixty years old. He nodded and smiled at them, “Don’t worry, don’t worry. Mr. Qin has arranged everything. I know what to do. You can pick her up whenever you want.”

“Of course we trust you,” Mo Er Qian said politely, “Please look after our family’s Xiao Gui. She’s a little timid and there are real mental patients here, they will scare her.”

“That is not a problem at all. I’ve arranged for Miss Mo to stay on the top floor of building #6. It is the most secluded place in the entire hospital, there are no mental patients nearby. As you know, our hospital only houses a few of those and they are non-violent patients, you can rest assured, Miss Mo’s safety will not be compromised.”

“You should also have someone to cater to her needs,” Ruan Qing Dan sobbed and demanded as though Mo Liu Gui was really going on a vacation.

Zhao Chuan Lin did not mind and smiled, “Of course, of course. I have arranged for a specialized nurse to take care of Miss Mo. Her lips are very tight and she has already been paid off. I also have a handle on her so there will not be a problem.”

“That’s the way,” Mo Shi Hong looked at Mo Liu Gui and said with heartache, “Xiao Gui, Dad will pick you up in a few days. You just relax in here, don’t worry about anything else. It’s like taking a vacation. If you’re bored, just listen to music or play some games. After this, everything’ll be alright. Ok?”

“That’s right. We can always say that you need a homely environment for your illness and bring you home. And after a year or so, you can go back to doing whatever you want,” Ruan Qing Dan touched her hair and said.

Mo Liu Gui heard these words and her fear subsided. She looked at Mo Er Qian with red eyes and said, “Brother, can you stay here with me till noon?”

“Certainly,” Mo Er Qian naturally would not refuse. However, he knew he was in quite a bind. Ever since he was invited to teach at Jing Da, he had taken too many off days and did too little work. He neither participated in any research nor gave the students enough lectures. He had been given a warning and if he didn’t return to make up for his hours, he might soon be out of a job.

…..

The Mo family members accompanied Mo Liu Gui for a whole afternoon before leaving. It was a mental hospital, after all, they could not stay for too long.

But after that day, the Mo family was at ease knowing that Qin Cheng Yi’s arrangements for Mo Liu Gui were exceptionally good. She got to stay in a peaceful environment and a deluxe room all to herself. She was also provided with everything she wanted including the internet and room service. 

After everyone left, Mo Liu Gui laid alone in bed and wept. 

She was still unable to accept this. Mo Liu Gui couldn’t help directing the blame at Mo Di. She simply wanted him dead. If it wasn’t for him, she would never end up in such a place!!!

She regretted deeply for not killing him when she had had umptien number of chances before. Why did she let it go?! Why?!

It was all because she was too innocent and simple. She wanted to be called a good sister so she was tolerant towards him and now look how things turned out!

The regret was so maddening that Mo Liu Gui grit her teeth till it hurt and screamed till her face turned pale that she had to gasp for air before recovering.

After throwing a tantrum, she took out her phone to surf the web, watch videos, and play games, trying to divert her attention. She would rather die with Mo Di than being bored in this hospital!

Mo Liu Gui played with her phone all night and only fell asleep in the morning.

The nurse who was to look after her was called Liu Cui, a fifty-six years old veteran nurse with experience and tactfulness.

She had come to give Mo Liu Gui her breakfast but seeing that she was still asleep, turned away and headed for the director’s office.
