“Where did you get this from?” Ling Chen asked as his face twisted.

“I wanted to ask you where you got that ring from?” Fey rubbed her forehead.

“I asked you first!”

“From a monster… and you?”

“Also from a monster.”

“……”

“I obtained the Lunar Scourge, and you obtained the Lachesis! I obtained the Lachesis’ Tear, and you obtained the Sacred Moon… fudge! Could this be even more ridiculous?” Ling Chen felt like he was going to go crazy. This was like a ridiculous drama!

“It’s useless for you to get all angry at me; I’m also quite shocked. Could it be that you were acting so confidently before because of this?” Fey was completely speechless. Seeing the [Lachesis’ Tear] and [Sacred Moon] in the other person’s hands, their battle intent was greatly reduced. Ling Chen never thought that the Lunar Scourge would have a perfect counter, and Fey never expected the Lachesis to have a counter either. After staring at each other for a while, both of them felt quite frustrated.

“Looks like we’re really bound by fate.” After staring at each other for a while, that was all Ling Chen could say, his voice full of wonder. They had met in ‘heaven’, and they had both survived. One had become Adam, the other Eve. They had supported each other through heaven and hell, and they viewed each other as their only rival. And now, in this world called Mystic Moon, their experiences had been so similar as well.

“Are we still going to fight?” The sharpness in her tone was almost completely gone.

“Looks like the heavens don’t want us to fight. However, we still haven’t had that final battle, and since we’ve dragged it out for so long, we need to have a conclusion. It’s just that this is the virtual world, so there are many things that won’t be fair if we use the things in the virtual world. My Lunar Scourge is useless against you, and your Lachesis is useless against me. It’s almost as if we’re being told that we shouldn’t be using things from the virtual world to settle this final match, but a fairer method,” Ling Chen slowly said as he slowly raised his chest. Evidently, he had thought of some sort of idea.

“Are you talking… about that?” Fey’s gaze also became strange. When she mentioned ‘that’, she didn’t seem to mind either.

“Of course it’s that. To us, that is the fairest way. We haven’t battled each other in quite a while, so do you dare?” A provocative look appeared in Ling Chen’s eyes.

Fey smiled back, “It’s not like this is the first time we’ve used that; why would I not dare? However, Adam, don’t forget about the consequences for losing.”

Ling Chen raised his eyebrows as he suddenly asked, “Fey, back then, you wanted to go back to your hometown to find your mother. Did you find her in the end?”

Hearing Ling Chen’s words, Yola looked at Fey worriedly.

Fey did not immediately reply, but the slight smile on her face slightly disappeared, and she softly said, “I did. It was 2 months after you left, but by then, she was on her dying breath. A month later, she died. Even though Liz and Cassandra were with me and I had some of the Mad Scientist’s equipment, they were unable to do anything.”

Ling Chen frowned and felt that he had asked something that he shouldn’t have asked. He cautiously asked, “What happened to your mother? Why was she on her dying breath?”

Fey closed her eyes, going back to that memory that she did not want to touch again. Apart from Ling Chen, if anyone else had asked her, she would not have answered them, “Back then, when I was taken to ‘heaven’, mother was completely heartbroken, and she looked for me every day. She blamed herself for my disappearance everyday… she never gave up looking for me for 7 years because she believed that I was still alive. Perhaps this is a sense of maternal instinct. It was just that because of all of the effort, tediousness, self-blame, tears, and despair that she endured over the 7 years… when I found her and when she found me, her mind and body had withered like that of a person who was 100 years old. I stayed with her day and night for an entire month, and I could only watch as she left me.”

Ling Chen: “……”

“However, that was also good. She suffered so much, so she deserved to rest. At least, during that 1 month, she was very happy. Up until she departed, she always had a gentle and warm smile on her face. After that, I no longer had any regrets, and I brought Yola and the others to find their family. At the same time, I expanded our power and protected those who we wanted to protect and killed those who we wanted to kill.” After speaking, Fey opened her eyes, looking completely expressionless.

Ling Chen stared for a few moments before saying, “Your mother… it’s good that she’s able to rest now. I’m sure she’s in the real Heaven now.”

Fey slightly smiled and said softly, “All mothers in the world are more or less like that. A mother’s love towards her children is not something that anything else can replace. These years, what I’ve admired most are those who still have mothers because they can at the very least still see their mothers and feel their mother’s love. They still have an opportunity to treat them with filial piety and protect them. What I hate most is seeing children who abandon their mothers when they need them the most. I always kill such people when I see them! Those sorts of people don’t deserve to continue living… forget it, to someone who lost his mother when he was born, the concept of a mother doesn’t mean much, and you wouldn’t understand.”

Ling Chen blankly stared ahead of him with a stiff expression on his face, and he did not say anything for a while.

“Oh? What’s wrong? From your expression, you seem quite touched,” Fey said half-teasingly.

Ling Chen shook his head, feeling incredibly complicated. He settled his emotions down as he replied, “You answered my question, so I should tell you about some things as well… 7 years ago, Hell didn’t die.”

“Oh?” Fey’s eyebrows leapt up, and Yola cried out. Following this, Fey calmly replied, “I don’t’ know why, but I don’t feel that surprised. After all, Instructor Hell wouldn’t die so easily.”

“He was saved by the Mad Scientist and was modified to become a terrifying half-cyborg. Half a year ago, he found me and tried to kill me. After becoming a half-cyborg, his mind was twisted, and he was no longer the Instructor Hell who had no openings. However, he became much more powerful to the point that I almost couldn’t fight back, and I was almost killed by him… however, afterwards, he died in front of me. I felt that it was me who killed him, but even now, I have no idea how I killed him. However, he’s completely dead this time – his body has been completely shattered, and even the Mad Scientist would not be able to bring him back.” After speaking, Ling Chen let out a light breath. Whenever he thought back to the scene of him fighting with Instructor Hell, he always felt a chill within his heart.

“Half-cyborg? The Mad Scientist actually created something so movie-like?” Fey was also quite shocked. After Instructor Hell died, the only person who made her feel true fear was the Mad Scientist. He wore white-rimmed glasses and was so hunchbacked that he stood at almost a 90 degree angle with his thin, skinny body, which looked so strengthless… and yet, he deserved the title of ‘demon’… no, he was even more terrifying than a demon.

“I’ve also been looking for the Mad Scientist all these years.”

“If he could be found so easily, he wouldn’t be the Mad Scientist anymore,” Ling Chen replied.

“That’s right. After so many years, I’ve found nothing, but even if it’s the Mad Scientist, he can’t be completely flawless all the time. One day, I’ll find him. If he doesn’t die, my heart will never be at ease. I’m sure you feel the same,” Fey said seriously.

Ling Chen nodded in complete agreement. After mentioning the Mad Scientist, the atmosphere became a bit gloomy, and Ling Chen said, “After talking about so many other things, it’s time to get down to business… same rules: the final battle will be decided by 3 rounds.”

“This was suggested by you, so don’t regret it!” A dangerous look appeared within Fey’s eyes.

In that moment, the peaceful atmosphere once again became tense. Both of their eyes became as sharp as knives, and 2 shocking waves of killing intent spread out, causing the surrounding temperature to drop.

As their icy-cold killing intent collided, Ling Chen and Fey inched towards each other from 30 or so positions away to just 10, then to 5… then to 3…

By the side, Yola’s heart was rapidly thumping. Back in hell, she would see Ling Chen and Fey fight almost every day, so she could immediately tell what they were about to do: heavens! They were going to use this sort of method to determine victory? Who would win? She felt so nervous…

When the 2 of them were just 1 metre away from each other, the air suddenly froze. Both of their weapons disappeared, and they stared at each other, raising their arms as they shouted simultaneously:

“Scissors, paper, rock!”

“Scissors, paper, rock!!”

“Scissors, paper, rock!!!”
