Reborn As a System - Chapter 57
Reborn As a System Chapter 57
A smug smirk was plastered across Qi Rui’s face, and his eyes were filled with malice as he looked at the child before him.
Weren’t you proud? Weren’t you smart? So what? You’re still just trash!
Qi Rui…had already gone insane!
Compared to Shi Qing’s anger, Qi Zimo was calm. It was as if he had not heard a single thing. Both his black eyes were locked onto Shi Qing, to the point where he could not see anything else.
Qi Rui dragged Shi Qing into his arms and pointed his gun right at his temple. Speaking in a composed tone, he threatened, “You want him? Then you’d better behave yourself.”
Without diverting his gaze in the slightest, Qi Zimo asked in a still voice, “What do you want?”
Qi Rui replied, “What do I want? You already know, yet you still ask! I want you to give me my reputation back. I want you to admit your own evil doings, and release your true nature, you madman!” Then, he sniggered before speaking in excitement, “I want you to give up your inheritance rights to the Qi family!”
An insurmountable rush of joy burst into his heart. It was as if a big burden had been pressing down on his head through his entire life, and it was suddenly gone. He quickly lifted his head in excitement, causing him to appear even more smug.
“Ahahah! You’ve actually already given up. With your useless dimension, you don’t even have the qualifications to be admitted to school, how could you inherit the Qi family? Don’t even think about…”
“Alright, I promise you.”
When his demands were accepted so quickly, Qi Rui felt rather stunned. Even so, he was very quickly overjoyed again. If he had known how much Qi Zimo treasured this brat, he would’ve done this long ago!
However, he would not be underestimating Qi Zimo again. So what if he said it? Only actual actions were reliable.
He finally managed to press down the mirth on his face, and ordered the person at the side to bring out the equipment they had prepared previously, then aimed it at Qi Zimo.
Shi Qing’s body could not move, and he could not speak, but he could still see what was happening.
What they prepared was a full set of cameras. In an instant, he understood what Qi Rui wanted to do…Shi Qing’s fury was nearly enough to burst out from his heart like a volcano. He had never hated someone this much in his life! He hated him to death! Why did he have to bully a child? Why did he have to go so far? He was only eleven, and had never done anything bad. Why did he have to ruin his life like this?
He truly could not stand it any longer. He wanted to scream out loudly. With Qi Zimo’s ability, he could escape by himself. Ignore that crazy bastard, and stop worrying about him as well. He couldn’t die, he was a system, he wouldn’t die no matter what!
Unfortunately, all the words that came to his mouth became muffled grunts, he couldn’t say anything at all!
Oh right! He could send a system message!
Shi Qing sent a message to Qi Zimo immediately, telling him to leave quickly, and not to worry about him.
In just a short few seconds, Qi Zimo’s reply came, “I won’t leave you.”
Shi Qing quickly responded, “I’ll be fine, I’m a system so I won’t die. As long as you leave, I’ll get out of here immediately!”
“…” Qi Zimo, “That…That’s what mom said when she left too. I’m sorry, I don’t want to be cheated again.”
Shi Qing looked at that reply, and he was speechless. The only thing left was an immeasurable feeling of sourness and annoyance spreading through his chest.
By that time, Qi Zimo had already sat in front of the cameras, and said in a very calm tone, “I am the one who injured Qi Zihui and Qi Zirui, it was I who took Qi Rui’s hand and cut my own wrist. I framed Qi Rui, this was all my doing, Qi Rui is innocent.”
He spoke out the truth just as Qi Rui wanted him to, but Qi Rui could hardly feel satisfied with that. He huffed, “People still won’t believe it if you say it like that, they’ll even suspect that I was threatening you. What about this, show everyone your ‘ability’, and let everyone take a good look. You’re not an ordinary child, you…” His tone grew harsher, and he spat out viciously, “Are a monster!”
Following that, he had someone move in a huge rock and a stiff iron plate. He motioned his head towards it and said, “Come on, let everyone see your strength.”
Qi Zimo walked in front of the rock, extended his fair and delicate hands, then slammed down forcefully. With a bang, the rock was no more, and reduced to debris and powder. Then, he moved over to the iron plate, and smashed down with one hand. The iron plate bent into a strange arc, but at the same time, his palms quickly became red and swollen.
The sight gave Qi Rui a shock, but the only thing Shi Qing could feel was worry. He was simply going insane with remorse. If he had been stronger, and more cautious, then Qi Zimo never would have fallen to this level, letting go of his dignity, bearing with the humiliation, with no power to fight back…
His heart could not be in more pain than right now. Nobody knew better than he how important dignity was to this person. It was an existence that was more important than his life, or anything else in this world! But at this moment, he let it go!
Shi Qing could not imagine what Qi Zimo’s psyche was like right now. Even if he did not show a single hint of it on the surface, he must’ve reached rock bottom in his heart, hasn’t he? He kept telling himself that he could never push Qin Mo into the depths of the abyss with his own hands. Even so, at that moment, he could only watch his downfall with open eyes, yet he could do nothing!
Qi Zimo was watching Shi Qing from beginning to end, without ever blinking. His emotions surged as if they were going to burn his body away, and it was as if those feelings could only be temporarily suppressed by looking at him. Only this person, he was the thing he could never let go. That was his only redemption, everything he had; even if he had to give up everything, even if he destroyed everything, he could never lose him.
It was as if that thought was engraved deep into his bones, integrating itself into his veins, controlling him completely. He belonged to him, and he could only be his. Nobody could snatch him away. Anyone who coveted him, hurt him, or tried to take him away from him, they all had to die!
Yes! They should die! Why can’t these people just die?
The darkness grew even deeper in his black eyes, even the last trace of light had been extinguished… As long as they’re all dead, nobody would be able to hinder him; as long as they disappeared, nobody could take him away.
As long as only the two of them were left in this world, he’ll be able to stay by his side forever.
How wonderful! A quiet world, where only Shi Qing existed!
A world that belonged to him completely!
The corner of his lips hooked up lightly, revealing a shallow smile. With such a smile on his tender face, it gave off a strange sense of beauty.
Qi Rui was just about to put away the camera in satisfaction, but he suddenly had a start when he turned back to see Qi Zimo. He couldn’t help feeling that something wasn’t quite right… He clearly had the upper hand, so why was he getting chills down his back?
It…it’s going to be fine! No matter how strong this monster was, he brought twenty men. With so many weapons around, he’ll definitely be fine!
Qi Zimo looked at him and asked quietly, “Can I take him away now?”
Hearing this, Qi Rui came back to his senses. That inexplicable sense of fear gradually faded away. That’s right! He had his trump card! What’s there to worry about?
Faced with Qi Zimo’s question, Qi Rui spoke out the words he had been suppressing in his heart for a long time. With a strong sense of pleasure from getting revenge, he said, “My good nephew, you’re too naive, you actually believe the words of an adult? Take him away? No…He’s not going anywhere. This is going to be a grave, yours and his along with you!”
When he spoke this sentence, Qi Rui broke out in uninhibited laughter. All his feelings of grievances had disappeared! He succeeded! He saved his reputation, and even cleared away his obstacles! He’s the proper heir to the Qi family! He finally regained that which belonged to him!
Qi Zimo wanted to live? Keep dreaming! How could he let him live with such great enmity between them? (t/n: such a great wrong done to him by the other)
Qi Rui looked proudly at Qi Zimo. He wanted to see that little monster’s face twisted with horror, despair, and fear!
“Is that so?” Qi Zimo raised his head slightly. Those black eyes were locked onto him once more. That shallow smile still hung on his face, like an angel descending onto the human world.
“This place is, indeed, a grave.”
Qi Rui looked in horror at the boy approaching at a rapid speed, and did not hesitate to shoot the gun in his hands. The bullets shot accurately towards Qi Zimo, but a chilling scene appeared!
The boy raised his head slightly, and a blue light suddenly flashed up in front of him. It actually stopped the bullet! The blue light faded, and he continued to move forward.
That ghastly scene shocked everyone!
An inexplicable fear rose up as Qi Rui’s felt cold chills going down his back. He quickly ordered, “Shoot now, quick! Kill that monster!”
Countless bullets broke through the air, but the boy in the center was unscathed. The blue light was like a strong protective shield, shielding him perfectly.
When Shi Qing saw this, he thought of his own guess, and instantly understood what was going on!
God! Qi Zimo finally understood! He was releasing that violent energy from his dimension!
No…that’s not right! He can’t do that!
Shi Qing quickly sent a message to Qi Zimo, “Don’t use the power in your dimension, it’s too strong, you can’t control it right now!”
Without any signal to respond, Qi Zimo opened his mouth, and the sound he made was deep, hoarse, and enchanting, “It’ll be fine, Shi Qing, I’m here, I’ll protect you, I’ll stay with you forever, no one can separate us, no one!”
Just as his voice fell, he raised his hand once more, and a scarlet light rushed out from his fingertips, shooting straight towards Qi Rui’s head. That powerful force ran through his head and left behind a thick trail of blood spurting out. Qi Rui’s eyes were wide open, and his face was frozen in disbelief.
Following that, countless traces of light emerged from Qi Zimo’s body, gushing out to his surroundings. Wherever he sent it, the ground would be dyed red!
The dark and damp warehouse suddenly became a horrifying crimson purgatory!
However, that crazy outburst of energy did not stop there. Instead, it was like an open flood gate, flowing out tempestuously, completely unstoppable!
With Qi Zimo at the center, that huge energy circle was just like an exploding nuclear bomb. After the dark night was illuminated by a blazing white light, an earth-shaking noise was heard!
A force that could destroy the world had unintentionally been set off.
A despicable greed had awoken the demon from his slumber.
Ruin it, destroy it, it’s all dirty anyway, disgusting, they shouldn’t have existed in the first place.
Qi Zimo bent down and picked up the unconscious youth. He nestled into the crook of his neck, and, shaking with desire, licked it before speaking softly, “Shi Qing, there’s only us left.”
We’ve moved into our new home. My life is a mess, but in a good way? Hope you enjoyed this chapter. Pst, Qin Mo, your psycho is leaking.
