Immortal in The Apocalypse – 76

Chapter 76

Just when everyone was wondering about her strange behavior today, Zhu Lin was talking to her contracted beasts.

[Tu Tu, have you found the answer?]

Looking up at the sky of the inner palace, Tu Tu said, “Yes, master. As you said, that woman has the soul that came from this world, but she also brings something from the higher realm. The tall man is from another realm, and he came here not long ago. I can still feel the strong aura emanating from him. For the favorite son of Heavenly Dao, he also bestowed more luck not long ago. Around that time we were still at the Iron Base.”

[I see. Shuang.]

At the moment she called him, Shuang’s answer came. “Yes, Master.”

[Observe Luo Feiguang. Report to me if you find something strange.]

Kneeling on the ground of the inner palace, he said, “Shuang accepted the order.”

After Shuang disappeared from the inner palace, Zhu Lin turned her head to look at Yin Heliu, and said: [Huo Yan, you observe Yin Heliu.]

“Yes, master.” Huoyan’s energetic voice came, and he disappeared from the inner palace the next second.

Left alone in the inner palace, Tu Tu asked: “Master, what about me?”

[You help me monitor and guard Yuan Yan. I think he’s one of the most crucial people in our task of finding the Heavenly Dao. Tell me if anything happens around him.]

“Yes, master.” With a bag of chocolates in her paws, Tu Tu also disappeared from the inner palace.

After assigning the tasks, she stood up from the couch and said, “I still have something to do. Excuse me.”

She looked at Ye Yu with a sincere smile on her face and said, “Ye Yu, I’m glad you found her.”

After saying this, she calmly walked out of the Crimson Moon Squad headquarters. Looking at her back, the few people sitting in the living room could only look at each other in confusion. Little did they know, two people sitting among them were panicking because of Zhu Lin’s questions.

Coming out of the Crimson Moon headquarters, Zhu Lin came to the mission hall across the street. Now that she has handed over all the supplies and equipment that she collected before to the Night Base, she plans to go out to find clues about the Heavenly Dao, and get more supplies and crystal nuclei along the way.

Although she gave them some supplies from her own warehouse, she couldn’t give them too much. She also wanted to restore her memory as soon as possible after meeting Long Shengyu. There must be clues hidden in her lost memory.

Standing outside the mission hall, she saw many ability users come and go from the mission hall. Walking in, she went over to the mission board and looked at the mission paper pin on the wide board. After searching for a few minutes, she still couldn’t find a suitable mission.

Those missions on the mission board are either looking for missing persons or recruiting information. Since there was no mission suitable for her, she left the mission hall. When she came out from there, Long Shengyu was already waiting for her outside.

Seeing her come out, he smiled at her and held out his hand. Subconsciously, she held his outstretched hand and asked, “Are you also here to find a mission?”

He took her hand, looked down at her and said, “No. I’m looking for you.”

She tilted her head and asked confusedly: “Looking for me? Do you need anything?”

Looking at her confused face, he chuckled lightly and said, “I only need you.”

Listening to his sweet words, she felt that his behavior today was extraordinary. It feels more like his behavior when he was the Devil God. She squinted at him and asked, “Did you gain other memories?”

Long Shengyu pursed his lips and said, “If I retrieve all my memories, will you be happy?”

Nodding her head, she answered him without hesitation. “Yes.”

His mood turned worse when he got her answer. “Why? Because you can get your Ah Yu back?”

She stared at his sullen face for a moment, then laughed. After being stared at by him, she coughed lightly and said, “No. I’m very happy because you have found what you lost. Besides, you are Ah Yu in the first place. You are too cute to be jealous of yourself.”

In a complicated mood, he sighed and said, “Let’s go.”

“Go where?”

He glanced at her and said calmly, “Our home.”

Half an hour later, he took her to the mountainous area on the north side of the Night Base. Walking on the path up the mountain, she looked at the surrounding bamboo and smelled the familiar fragrance she liked. A few minutes later, she saw a small bamboo house in the middle of the bamboo forest.

Long Shengyu looked at her and asked, “Do you like it?”

Looking at the familiar design in front of her, Zhu Lin asked in a daze: “You made this?”

“Mhm. You guessed right. I got all my memories back last night.”

Listening to his words, she raised her head and met his loving eyes. Happy for him, she said with a smile: “It seems that I have to work harder in the future.”

He opened his arms and hugged her tightly. After a long silence, he lowered his head and whispered in her ear. “As long as you’re by my side, I don’t care about the rest.”

Feeling the soreness in her heart, she sighed. Hearing her sigh, he looked at her sad face and asked anxiously: “Lin’er, what’s the matter? You don’t like this house? Tell me, and I’ll make another one that you like.”

Shaking her head, she put her arms around his waist, leaned on his chest, and closed her eyes to listen to his rapid heartbeat. Getting no answer from her, he panicked and didn’t know what to do.

“I love you.” She whispered softly.

He was stunned when he heard her sudden confession. Lifting her eyes, she saw his masculine jawline and blushing face. Seeing his cute reaction, she chuckled, and suddenly wanted to tease him.

“Ah Yu didn’t answer me. Do you not love me anymore?”

He shook his head quickly. “No!”

Let him go, she said dejectedly: “I see. I’ll go then.”

Seeing her turn around, he quickly held her hand and explained hastily. “That’s not what I mean. I’m not saying I don’t love you, but… but I mean you’re wrong. No, I.. I mean you’re never wrong, but I… I mean..”

She watched him try to explain desperately, but  the more he said it, the worse it became. After talking nonsense for a few minutes, Long Shengyu stopped talking and groaned in despair. Looking at his bewildered face, she laughed until tears flowed from the corners of her eyes.

“Ha ha ha!”

He stared at her and asked, “Teasing me?”

She nodded and answered him between her laughs. “Um. You’re cute.”

He rubbed his face with relief, sighed and said, “You scared me to death.”

After her laughter stopped, she smiled and looked at him. “So, what’s your answer?”

He pulled her closer, bowed his head until there was almost no distance between their faces, and whispered: “I love you more than you love me.”

“Um.. That’s a good answer.”

With a smile on his lips, he lowered his head and kissed her deeply. The faint bamboo fragrance brought by the breeze brought them back to the memories of the past. In the middle of the bamboo forest, the figures of the two merged into one.

A few minutes later, they parted breathlessly. Long Shengyu stroked her lips lightly, and said hoarsely: “Sweet.”

Zhu Lin gently touched her swollen lips. “I eat mango pudding for breakfast.”

Lowering his head again, he gently licked her lips. “Mhm. I like mango pudding.”

Listening to his words, she couldn’t help blushing. Looking away, she looked at the bamboo house and said, “I want to see the house.”

“I’ll take you to have a look.”


With their hands intertwined, the two walked towards the bamboo house together. When they looked at each other, there were rare happy smiles on their faces. Today, the world looks extraordinarily beautiful.
