Chapter 94: Extra – Bloody Fairy Tale (4)
Caught unexpected by Cheng Zhi Chu’s kiss, the young merman’s face turned bright red. The tentacles making up his lower body trembled and one after another they moved over to cover his flushed face.
“Zh-Zhi Chu. Why did you kiss me?”
The golden-haired young man curled up the rest of his tentacles and appeared to be very shy. Cheng Zhi Chu saw this reaction of his and felt even more ashamed. Just when he was about to let the young man go, he found his wrist being held onto by the young man’s tentacles.
“You kissed my brother first and then you kissed me…………Don’t you know that we can’t reject you……”
The young man finally gathered up his courage. He stared at him with bright eyes and he looked like a puppy whose only intention was to please its owner. He carefully sat down next to Cheng Zhi Chu.
His eyes were clean and pure, and the flush on his face had not yet receded. He gently spoke to Cheng Zhi Chu.
“In our sea monster tribe, the meaning of a kiss is to ask the other person to pleasure you. Zhi Chu, you are already going to marry brother but I………”
When he spoke, several soft tentacles rested on Cheng Zhi Chu’s shoulder and waist. It quietly tightened. Using his hands, he slowly unbuttoned the Cheng Zhi Chu’s top button.
Cheng Zhi Chu was stunned. He didn’t expect the young man to have such a pure expression yet say something so scary. When the young man kissed him on the lips again, he became even more pale. Internally, he desperately called out to the system.
I’ve already kissed him. Hurry and transport me away!!
【I can’t. You need to make him let go of you first or I will transfer him over as well.】 The system whispered. 【But don’t worry. Even if that really happened, I won’t let you reach the outcome of having to lay eggs……】
Can you not talk about laying eggs?!
When Cheng Zhi Chu heard those two words, he was terrified. He wanted to speak up and beg the merman to let go of him, but he unexpectedly felt a tongue invading his mouth. He was being kissed, and those tentacles also weren’t very complacent.
In front of the young man, he had no power to resist. He was directly pressed down onto the bed. The golden-haired young man’s eyes with vertically oval pupils glowed bright. Carrying instinctive aggression after capturing his favourite prey, his tentacles tore open Cheng Zhi Chu’s clothes.
“Zhi Chu, don’t worry. I will be gentler than my brother……..”
The young man stroked his pale cheeks and comforted him softly. At this moment, the door to the palace was suddenly pushed open from outside. The handsome man with silver hair walked in with a hint of a smile on his face.
But the moment he saw the young man pressing Cheng Zhi Chu down onto the bed, the smile at his lips instantly stiffened, and his eyes frosted over. He asked expressionlessly:
“What are you doing?”
The golden-haired young man was very flustered. He opened his mouth but couldn’t explain himself. After all, the truth was indeed what his brother saw. There was no misunderstanding.
The man’s expression turned dark and cold. He waved his hand slightly and the young man’s body appeared to have been caught by an invisible hand. With a “thud” he slammed onto the wall. The force was so great, the entire palace shook.
The next second, his gaze fell over to Cheng Zhi Chu. Cheng Zhi Chu’s entire body was covered in cold sweat. At this moment, his body suddenly started to glow. His figure then disappeared from the palace.
【That was too scary, but fortunately the younger merman wasn’t holding onto you so I managed to transfer you away.】
After being transferred, the system spoke with lingering fear: 【Otherwise who knows what the older brother who was cheated on would do to you…….Uh, but I don’t think he would hurt you. After all, he is a projection of Bai Yi’s soul.】
Will the younger brother be okay? Cheng Zhi Chu was very worried. If he’s killed by the older brother, what will happen to Bai Yi?
【You have already kissed him. It doesn’t matter after the soul projection is purified. After all, he is just a projection and not a real soul fragment. Even if he is killed, it won’t affect Bai Yi.】
The system said: 【Of course, we still hope that he is safe. If he was killed by his brother, that would be too pitiful.】
I left him just like that……….After feeling elated that he escaped, the next thing Cheng Zhi Chu felt was shame.
【You also didn’t have any other choice. If you are really worried, you can go back and take a look. Oh, but you will need to wait until the end of the teleportation cooling time. It’s about half an hour.】
The system said: 【We should confirm first where you have been moved to. Earlier I set the location to Eternal Sleep City. This place should be…….Huh??】
It suddenly made a sound of surprise. Cheng Zhi Chu who was observing his surroundings tensed up. He asked: What’s wrong?
From what he can see, it is currently night. He’s currently inside a dense forest that stood on the edge of a highland. Looking down, he could faintly overlook a majestic city. When he looked at the sky, it’s………..
At this moment, Cheng Zhi Chu was surprised to see that the night sky was illuminated by a bright moon and it was sprinkled with numerous stars. It wasn’t the blood-red moonlight and the dozens of terrifying eyes.
【This time the space didn’t distort during transfer. Time had distorted…….】
The system said this awkwardly. It appeared to be feeling guilty.
【This is indeed Eternal Sleep City but the time is……..One thousand years ago.】
Upon hearing Chrisis’s request, Kashir’s pupils constricted. He replied in surprise: “Why?”
The lord of Eternal Sleep City didn’t explain. He just calmly looked at the black haired young man and once again repeated his request.
“If you want me to save him, give him to me.”
“Otherwise I will not save him.”
“……….You want new experimental materials?” Kashir pursed his lips. His fingers slightly tightened as he tried to restrain his inner emotions. “Don’t touch him. I will help you find other magical creatures.”
“It has nothing to do with experiments. I want to take him back to Eternal Sleep City.”

Chrisis’s finger slid down and he touched the red collar on the mirror spirit’s neck. He said: “Take it off.”
“……….I can’t agree with your request.”
After a moment of silence, Kashir looked up at him: “I can exchange other items. Things like the Dragon of the Abyss or ———–”
“Apart from him, I don’t want anything else.”
The man interrupted Kashir. His magical robe drew an arc as he walked past him. He left behind one sentence.
“His life is in your hands.”
The door closed, leaving the young man standing silently next to the bed. He stood there for a very long time.
Fresh blood fell from the palm of his hands. Drop by drop, it fell to the ground.
After a long and arduous trek, Cheng Zhi Chu finally arrived outside the gates to Eternal Sleep City. He was exhausted. He originally discussed with the system that he wanted to transfer directly to the city through teleportation, but the system said that he should conserve it and urged him to walk over to the city.
Eternal Sleep City also had another name. It was “Emerald City”. This was a very prosperous capital city. Even before entering the city, Cheng Zhi Chu could see numerous people coming and going from the city gates.
To enter the city, an identity check is required. Cheng Zhi Chu naturally didn’t have any identification so to enter Emerald City, he would need to teleport in. When he found out about this, he couldn’t help but feel hatred towards the system.
【How would I know that you would need identification?】
The system muttered: 【But it’s not like it was without benefits. At least we found out after asking the guards that Chrisis is the only son of the towns’ lord. We just need to teleport directly to the government house .】
Following the system’s instructions, Cheng Zhi Chu came over to a secret place to avoid being seen by others when he teleported. The system then used its ability and teleported him into the government house . After a feeling of weightlessness, he felt the floor disappear from under him. There was no ground below him. With a ‘splash’ he fell directly into a pool of hot water.
“Pah……..Cough, cough cough!”
Fortunately, the hot water in the pool wasn’t deep and it only reached his chest. Cheng Zhi Chu quickly stepped onto the bottom of the pool and stood up. He supported himself by the edge of the pool as he coughed desperately. He then suddenly felt a cold sensation at his neck.
He looked down slightly and was shocked. A sharp short sword was pressed against his neck. A deliberately low voice spoke to him from behind. It sounded like a young teenager threatening him: “Don’t move.”
Cheng Zhi Chu’s body stiffened. He cooperated and didn’t move. Under the instructions from the young man behind him, Cheng Zhi Chu raised both his hands and slowly turned around in the water. Separated by misty water vapour, he saw a very beautiful face.
The young man continued to hold the short sword against his neck. Most of his body was immersed in the water and his chest was bare. His skin was smooth and white, and his black hair was slightly damp from the steam coming from the hot water. Several strands stuck against the sides of his face but it didn’t soften his cold look. He stared coldly at Cheng Zhi Chu. It was as if he would immediately make him shed blood the moment he sees him do something strange.
【He is Chrisis.】
The system said this but, even if it didn’t say anything, Cheng Zhi Chu could tell that this young man is Chrisis. After all, the two maids from before had mentioned that the lord of Eternal Sleep City has an outstanding appearance to the point that others would mistaken him for a princess. The young man in front of him clearly met those conditions.
But why did he have to be transferred to the moment when Chrisis is bathing?! And why is this guy still carrying a sword around even while bathing?
Seeing the smooth tiles and luxurious decorations around him, Cheng Zhi Chu quickly realised that he was transferred into the bathroom. With Chrisis holding a sword by his neck, he immediately started to sweat. He even started to suspect that the system had done it deliberately.
“Answer my question.”
The young Chrisis narrowed his eyes and brought the blade closer to Cheng Zhi Chu’s neck. It even made a thin cut: “Who are you? How did you get in here? Who sent you?”
The system quickly reminded Cheng Zhi Chu: 【You should cooperate with him for the time being. Don’t anger Chrisis. The teleportation ability is still cooling down.】
Cheng Zhi Chu naturally understood his current predicament. Chrisis look was getting colder and colder but he couldn’t explain to him why he suddenly appeared here. Feeling anxious, he randomly blurted out:
“Actually I…..I’m a magician!”
Before the system’s teleportation ability cool down time is reached, Cheng Zhi Chu used his own short distance teleportation card to prove to Chrisis that he really was a magician. He explained that he had accidentally entered the government house when he used the skill earlier.
He explained very timidly. Within him having such an ability yet being able to be caught by Chrisis, the latter felt that he wasn’t a threat and slowly lowered his guard. After a moment of silence, he sheathed his sword and sneered coldly: “Your stupidity really surprises me.”
Cheng Zhi Chu didn’t have anything to say in response to that. He could only take it as Chrisis mocking the system and remained patient. He just needed to wait until the cooling time is over for him to kiss Chrisis and then quickly transfer away.
Like this, he would just have to kiss the twin knights under Kashir’s command.

With someone suddenly appearing in the bath, Chrisis naturally couldn’t continue bathing. He took a large bath towel and moved to sit on a bench nearby. He looked at Cheng Zhi Chu and raised an eyebrow.
“Why aren’t you leaving? Waiting for me to call the guards in?”
Having not yet kissed Chrisis, Cheng Zhi Chu naturally couldn’t leave. Since he is now treated as a rookie magician by Chrisis, he decided to thoroughly make use of this persona. He spoke dejectedly: “I have used up all my magic power and need some time to recover before I can leave.”
Chrisis assessed him for a moment: “I heard that magicians are all very mysterious and powerful, but you seem to be a special case. Are you really a qualified to be called a magician?”
Cheng Zhi Chu heard this and felt stuffy inside. He almost vomited out blood. Why is this guy’s mouth so poisonous? It’s completely different from his gorgeous appearance!
His depressed look seemed to please the young man. The young man lifted his lips up slightly and he suddenly walked over to Cheng Zhi Chu. He pinched his lower jaw and said:
“You are the first magician I have ever seen. Though your level is very poor, it is still very interesting.”
“I can allow you to stay in this government house. Teach me magic as remuneration. I will use the power of Emerald City to collect more magic books. Let’s study it together.”
“How is it? Do you want to stay by my side?”
In the night sky, under the gaze of the blood-red eyeballs, a black carriage flew through the air. Eight skeleton winged horses pulled the carriage along and the wheels of the carriage were engulfed in black flames that emitted a dark luster.
Following behind the black carriage was a long line of guards. They were all creatures of the dark and amongst them was the twin dark knights riding undead beasts. They were also originally from Eternal Sleep City and, under Kashir’s orders, they were tasked with guarding Chrisis and the mirror spirit.
The interior of the carriage was decorated very luxuriously, and it was also made more spacious using magic. It was more than enough to accommodate a large bed.
Chrisis sat by the bed and stared at the mirror spirit lying next to him. There were no emotions on his handsome face. His fingers unconsciously slid across the mirror spirits face.
It was exactly the same as the face in his memory.
That clumsy, ignorant yet cute magician.
He was like a flower that would only bloom in the presence of moonlight. During the past thousand years, he had only existed for a short time. After suddenly appearing, he also disappeared very abruptly yet it brought along memories that were deeply etched into his bones.
This was also the reason why he continued until now without choosing to sleep eternally.
He hoped to find him again.
And this mirror spirit……….Could he be related to his little magician?
He must let him wake up and figure out the truth.
Cheng Zhi Chu has already stayed in Emerald City for two weeks
He didn’t think that he would actually stay there for so long ——No, this wasn’t because he couldn’t find the chance to kiss Chrisis. Long before the cool down time ended, he had already kissed Chrisis but he still failed to return. Instead, he was almost thrown into the dungeon for defiling nobility.
The teleportation ability couldn’t be used here or, to be more precise, it could only be used for spatial displacement and not time displacement. With the twin knights existing at a time a thousand years later, even if he teleported around, it was pointless.
【Looks like you can only wait for the next time distortion to happen so that you can return to one thousand years in the past.】
When will the distortion happen?
【That, I don’t know. The time and space in this world is not stable. If you are not lucky…..】 The system’s voice sounded a little worried, 【It may even take several years.】
Cheng Zhi Chu’s face went pale: Do you mean I’ll need to live here for several years?!
He didn’t want to. There wasn’t the convenience of modern life, and he was also being watched over day and night. He even had to wake up early everyday to serve Chrisis. Just the past two weeks was about to drive him crazy. If you asked him to live here for a few more years, he may as well kill himself first!
The system tried to calm him down: 【That’s just if you are very unlucky. You might even be able to go back tomorrow.】
But it could also be longer than that!
Cheng Zhi Chu no longer trusted the systems words. Just when he was about to vent out his emotions, the young man sitting at the desk placed down his quill and waved at Cheng Zhi Chu: “Come here.”
Due to various reasons, Cheng Zhi Chu didn’t dare resist his orders. He could only obediently walk over before the young man.
Chrisis pulled his shirt collar and forced him to bow his head. He examined his face and raised his eyebrows: “Why do you look so reluctant? Don’t you like me? Is it painful for you staying by my side?”
“How can that be……I’m very happy.”
Cheng Zhi Chu forced a smile on his face. He pretended to be very happy.
Two weeks ago, he had forcefully kissed Chrisis but he didn’t expect the teleportation ability to fail. After the transfer, his body still remained in the Emerald City from a thousand years in the past. He was soon very quickly caught by the guards and taken over to Chrisis.
The handsome young man had a face of anger as he interrogated Cheng Zhi Chu the reason behind his actions. At that time Cheng Zhi Chu couldn’t explain his behaviour and blurted out a very dumb reason in panic. Until now, he continued to pay the price for those lies———
“Because I……I like you a lot Master Chrisis.”
Clearly wanting to cry, Cheng Zhi Chu did his best to force a smile on his face as he said this to the young man.
The young man didn’t seem to believe him. He said coldly: “Then why did you show that kind of expression?”
“Because I think that I’m not good enough for you. Being by your side makes me scared. Scared that I would suddenly awaken from this dream…….”
“Is that so?”
The young man didn’t say anything else. His lips curved up slightly and he appeared to be in a good mood.
“But you can rest assured.” He said, “You still have some use in you. As long as you don’t anger me, you can continue to stay here.”
Cheng Zhi Chu: “………..” No, but he doesn’t want to!
