“An Te Qi-bàba, I’m going to go play with my classmates. I might come home late.”
Ri Xiang Ye was holding a cell phone and had called home to report he was fine.
On the other end of the phone, An Te Qi was silent for a long time before he asked with difficulty, “Ah Ye… Does eating dinner involve using the Death Scythe? Are you going to cut steak with it or what?”
“Ah…” Ri Xiang Ye replied in an embarrassed tone, “An Te Qi-bàba, you found out I took the Death Scythe?”
“Mhm. Earlier, Ri Xiang Yan called home and ranted for a while about some modified humans showing up again and said they even went to attack you and stuff like that. So I figured maybe you’d use the Death Scythe sometime soon and was just thinking about doing maintenance on it. But it was missing.”
“Don’t tell Gēge, O.K.?” Ri Xiang Ye pleaded.
“Where are you going?”
After his previous lie had been seen through, Ri Xiang Ye didn’t dare lie to An Te Qi again. He could only honestly say, “I’m going to demolish the lab that the modified humans come from.”
“Your brother will be livid. No, he’ll explode…”
Ri Xiang Ye also knew that if his brother found out about this, he would definitely be very, very, very angry. But Dark Sun was unable to disobey his instinct to hunt down enemies, and Ri Xiang Ye also didn’t want to disobey that instinct. He wanted to protect his brother.
