You Know I Do Not Have The Heart To Reject You

“Rong Jialou has been very nice to me. I will certainly not harm him. As you can see right now, we have come together as one.” Mo Zhao continued.
“I believe it is not his conscience that you kept, but his memory. Did you engulf his souls as a whole?” Gu Xijiu continued.
Mo Zhao rubbed his nose before answering. “It is not nice for you to say that I swallowed his souls. I prefer to call it a union of our souls.”
Gu Xijiu could not suppress the sadness in her eyes. She could almost understand why Mo Zhao chose to attach his soul to Rong Jialuo’s body.
When Mo Zhao was still Rong Che, both of them had spent many years together, enough for Mo Zhao to understand Rong Jialuo, which made it easier for him to manipulate his flaws.
Moreover, Rong Che and Rong Jialuo were brothers who shared the same bloodline. Mo Zhao had been using Rong Che’s body long enough to adapt to the Rong bloodline. Therefore, Rong Jialuo was a good choice that would make the reattachment easier for him.
Rong Jialuo was, after all, an ordinary man in his twenties, so he was not a well-matched adversary for Mo Zhao, who had been cultivating his vital energy for thousands of years. Once Mo Zhao took over the body, Rong Jialuo’s soul would not be spared.
It seemed like Rong Jialuo would never come back again. He had truly become Mo Zhao. Hence, Gu Xijiu was devastated by the realization. Rong Jialuo had always been very kind to her. Without Mo Zhao, Rong Jialuo could be an excellent ruler of the Feixing Kingdom with a good name for posterity.
Unfortunately, his encounter with Mo Zhao made it all impossible. Mo Zhao had been controlling him for all his life.
Before, Gu Xijiu was still unable to overcome certain misgivings, but she changed her mind. There would be no scruple for her anymore. She looked at Mo Zhao fixedly. “There is one more thing that I do not understand.”
“Say it. You know I do not have the heart to reject you.”
“In the secret Blood Palace, what did you mean when you said you did not expect it to be me?” Gu Xijiu knew that there would be some underlying meaning in his words.
Mo Zhao returned her question with a smile. “Xijiu, can you read the star chart?” Gu Xijiu was perplexed, as she did not understand what it had to do with the star chart.
A flashback suddenly occurred to her. She remembered Di Fuyi once showed her the astrological chart, which among many stars, she found the biggest star that represented Di Fuyi, but failed to find the star for her own. Di Fuyi did not point it out to her either.
She thought that she must be too insignificant to be on the chart, so she did not question any further.
Mo Zhao’s sudden question made her rethink the entire situation. Did Mo Zhao recognize her star from the star chart? She wondered if she had already acquired a position among the stars with her present capability, but she had no idea which one.
The real star chart could only be revealed at certain locations. The ordinary night sky left no trace of each star’s position.
She answered with another question instead, “What difference would it make if I can or cannot read it?
Mo Zhao kept his eyes on her smilingly. He tried to find some clues from her expression.
Although she managed to skip the question, he was sure to assume that she was still unaware of her true identity from the way she responded.
It would be fun for Mo Zhao.
Under normal circumstances, the old King Star would protect the new King Star as part of his or her obligation. He would keep the heir safe when necessary and teach the new King Star the ability to guard the world by continuing the work of the predecessor.
The old King Star should never watch over the new King Star so extensively to the point of going against God’s will. However, he could tell that the old King Star had done a lot for her from the star chart. The level of commitment had gone way beyond the relationship between a predecessor and an heir.
