For more than three years, over 1,000 days and 1,000 nights, she had been the only person in his heart, yet when he returned to see her during this Sea God Fate Match-making Convention, she wasn't even willing to remove her veil for him.
A sense of bitterness welled up in his heart, and it quickly transformed into an indescribable sense of agony.
"Big Brother..." Na'er called out gently from beside him, and Tang Wulin turned toward her in a wooden manner before giving her a smile.
Na'er was rooted to the spot. She'd never seen a smile like this from her big brother. It was stiff and awkward, and tinged with a hint of dejection and despair. Her heart suddenly began to throb with excruciating pain. It was so painful that words failed to describe her suffering. She reflexively held on tighter to his hand.
Meanwhile, Gu Yue looked on at him in the distance from beneath her veil, and unbeknownst to him, there were already tears in her eyes. Unbeknownst to him, her long eyelashes were trembling.
She wanted so badly to remove her veil, but she knew that she had to sever all ties with him in the most direct way possible.
On the train, they were discussing their future aspirations. There were lofty ones like Xie Xie's, plain ones like Xu Xiaoyan's, and serene ones like Xu Lizhi's.
There was also...
"Get married to you."
It was just a joke, but it had clearly made her very dejected. It was the first time he'd seen her so depressed; she was like a dead leaf shivering in the autumn wind.
Just what had happened to her? Perhaps her aspirations truly were very very heavy, so heavy that she had to continue carrying them even in the face of all of the doubts and objections she received from everyone.
She didn't want to hurt this group of friends, so as opposed to lying to them, she simply refrained from telling them anything.
"Everyone has their secrets; you don't need to force yourself to tell us something you don't want to reveal."
"What are your aspirations?"
"I want to join the army."
He wanted to become more powerful so he could find his parents and Na'er. He cast his gaze out of the window and smiled as he envisioned a bright future ahead.
She seemed to have noticed his expression, and a series of scenes flashed before her eyes...
On that night, her hair was drifting in the wind, and her eyes were no longer black. Instead, they'd taken on a faint purple hue.
There was a ball of light flickering over her palm, and a final hint of purple rose up before vanishing in a flash.
She was as beautiful and intriguing as a mystery on a moonlit night, and her eyes were like a pair of deep ancient wells.
Life was a journey, and there were passengers and scenery along the way.
