14. If I tell you a story, you must listen (Part 2)


Shi Xia stayed silent for a few more seconds before remembering that she wasn’t sleeping at all, what wake her up ah!

 

What’s more, the door of the room was not even closed, then why did he you climb the window ah? She suddenly vaguely felt that this person’s…… brain seemed to be empty.

 

“What do you want to do?”

 

Chi Hou replied indifferently as it wasn’t him who came to her, “Nothing!”

 

Nothing? Then did you climb the window to scare me?

 

“Since you are still awake, then ……” his face turned even serious as he finished, “I’ll put you to sleep, okay?” Lie down quickly! <( ̄ coo) >

 

“Huh? Ah!?” This guy is sick, right?

 

Before Shi Xia could say anything, Chi Hou suddenly made a move. He pressed her to the bed, pulled up the covers, and asked with a serious face, “Do you want to hear a story?” Quickly, say you want to hear.<( ̄ ̄)/

 

“……” big brother, did you forgot to take your medicine?

 

“Then I will tell you my story!” Chi Hou took her silence as affirmation and said.

 

“Wait ……” Why ask me if you don’t want to know if I want to hear a story or not ah!? Hey! Let me say something first ah!

 

“I was ten years old when I entered the path of cultivation, twenty years old when I built the foundation, and at the Jindan stage, I was……”

 

“I said ……”

 

“That year when I went to the south in search of the golden elixir, I met a ……”

 

“Stop!” Shi Xia finally couldn’t help herself and shouted. She quickly lifted the covers from her and sat up. Taking a deep breath to calm her nerves she asked, “What the hell do you want?”

 

Chi Hou seemed to be unhappy with her interruption, but still answered seriously, “Tell you a story.”

 

“Why do you want to tell me a story?” Shi Xia was frustrated with his behaviour. He, a big man, climbed the window of a young girl in the middle of the night to tell a story? That sounds very scary, okay?

 

“To put you to sleep.” His face was still stoic as he replied.

 

“Why do you want to put me to sleep?” Why don’t you go coax the old man? He seemed to be unhappy me being his Senior Aunt.

 

Chi Hou stared at her with unblinking eyes. His stare made goosebumps appear on her arms. After staring at her for a moment, he slowly reached out his hand and rubbed her head as he said, “I am your brother. It is my duty to make you fall asleep.” I’m sorry, but I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to do a god job. Thought Chi Hou in his heart.

 

“…… “It seemed what she heard at the daytime wasn’t her illusion, he really wanted to take her as a sister. But she couldn’t understand what exactly was his reason for him to take her as his sister.

 

She felt the need to clear any misunderstanding he had about her.

 

“Chi Hou, actually ……”

 

“Call me brother.” It is the right way to call me. (∩_∩)

 

“……” your sister! Why didn’t she thought before he was so difficult to communicate before? Why can’t he understand that she can’t be his sister?

 

“I’m sorry but I have a brother, a real brother! And of course that person is not the Demon King. But I can recognise you as a cousin brother if you want, okay?” Although her oldest brother wasn’t with her, but the two grew up together and faced all the hardship. Compared to other siblings who have good relationship, they have much deeper feelings. The word ‘brother’ is very precious to her, because her brother is the only family she has.

 

“Not a cousin brother.” He said word by word, “I’ll be your brother, your own brother!”

 

“……” Flip the table! you think you are the President of the United States ah? Why the hell did he want to be her brother anyway?

 

“You promised.” He added, “During the day.”

 

“I that thought you were going to take me as a disciple.”

 

His eyes narrowed slightly as he stroked her head. His fierce stare automatically blocked all of her objection as he repeated same words, “Call me brother.”

 

Call me brother…call brother… brother…I told it three times. Now she might understand how important it is to call me brother. <(^-^)>

 

“But you’re really not my brother!”

 

Chi Hou paused as he stared at her. He didn’t say anything back, but Shi Xia suddenly heard a sound, the sound of something breaking off. The hand that was just touching the top of her head stiffened. She felt the whole room was suddenly transferred to Antarctica, it became so cold that she couldn’t help but shiver. His cold face looked like it was frozen with snowflakes.

 

Her heart sank, when she slowly looked behind, she saw a stream of air burst out from somewhere.

 

Before she could blink, a loud boom resonated in the whole room. The hut where she lived the past one month were blown by the strong wind. One third of the hut was destroyed, in addition to the roof above her bed, the other side of the hut had been turned into flying ash. When she raised her eyes, she saw the moon and stars behind Chi Hou.

 

Shi Xia was dumbfounded, she immediately kneeled on the ground and clutched his thighs.

 

Hugging the angry person in front of her she exclaimed, “Brother, you are my missing Brother! My real Brother!”

 

Chi Hou seemed to be frozen for a moment, before the hand that emitted chill a moment ago fell in her head and rubbed.

 

“…… good girl.” A certain facial paralysed person was satisfied, she really called me Brother! ( ^ – ^ )

 

“Do you want to listen a story?”

 

“Yes, I’ll listen to anything you say.”

 

“Hmm.”

 

“……” Shi Xia, who was forced to listen story from her ‘Brother’ saw her real brother accusing her for forgetting him in her head. But she didn’t have the time to care about him, her own life was at stake.

 

****

 

For this sister, who he had been curious about for a hundred years, Chi Hou told her every single thing he remembered about his life.

 

He had been cultivating for too long, people around him, his friends and acquaintances have come and gone, and finally, he was the only one left. So at first when he heard the Demon King enthusiastically describing his sister, he didn’t feel much emotion, except for contempt. If it was before, he wouldn’t have cared for this so-called sister. But with the Demon King’s three hundred and sixty degree brainwashing, not only he thinks his sister was the best, he even started to think having a sister wasn’t that bad.

 

At first, there was only a vague concept of this person named ‘sister’ in his mind, but as the devil’s brainwashing continued, a faint image started to appear. When the Demon King disappeared, there was no one to whisper about sister in his ear, no one chanted praises for the sister. The image that was appearing in his mind suddenly became an unfinished figure, which made him uncomfortable. Because of the sudden lack of drawing paper and pen, the image couldn’t take shape.
