Zhu Qing’an saw the door being opened, his pupils suddenly shrunk from nervousness.
He was tapped on the shoulder, a strange man in a suit appeared in front of him.
The man’s skin was pale, he wore a pair of gold-rimmed glasses, and unlike others – he was holding a laser g-un.
Zhu Qing’an frowned, took a few sharp steps back, and asked in a cold voice: “What do you want to do?”
The man was obviously interested in Zhu Qing’an, he looked at Zhu Qing’an a few times then coldly smiled: “You are Zhu Qing’an? Qin Hengyi’s lover?”
“……” Zhu Qing’an didn’t say anything. He stared at the laser gu-n in the other man’s hand and clenched his teeth.
But the man didn’t want to use the gu-n to hurt Zhu Qing’an, he said in a light voice: “I’m a person from the government. I’m sure you can guess what I’m trying to do by bringing you here.”
After Qin Yuan destroyed the government’s plan because of Zhu Qing’an, the government must have followed Zhu Qing’an.
Zhu Qing’an had become one of the important people blocking their plans.
Zhu Qing’an smiled coldly: “You want to kil-l me?”
He had a baby face, but his skin was extremely pale in the light, and his whole person exuded an inexplicable sense of detachment.
The man shook his head: “No, I won’t hurt you, if you die, Qin Hengyi will go crazy. I just want to take you to make a choice.”
“You’ll know later.” The man pointed to the food on the bedside table, “Eat something first. You’ve slept all day. You can’t hold up without eating.”
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
He glanced at the steaming bowl of milk cereal, then inexplicably remembered something else. He couldn’t eat.
Zhu Qing’an ignored him, “Where am I? I need to contact my friend–”
He picked up the light computer, while watching the man’s expression with his eyes.
The man didn’t say anything, smiling.
He opened the communication, surprisingly, the communication software couldn’t open. He poked open another communication software, it also couldn’t open.
“We have been observing you. You can’t contact Qin Hengyi. We’re not stupid.”
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
He silently poked open False Love.
The black and white game interface of False Love popped up.
It seemed the government didn’t expect it at all – Qin Hengyi was in the game.
This was a very fatal mistake.
The corners of Zhu Qing’an’s lips lightly raised, but he put on a very frightened expression, looking at the light computer with a face full of helplessness, his shoulders slightly trembled.
The man narrowed his eyes amusingly, he pushed up his glasses and pulled Zhu Qingan’s arm, “Come here.”
Before Zhu Qing’an could react, the man brought him to the front door.
It was dark outside the gate.
Nothing could be seen.
“Remember to make your choice at the end.”
The man pushed Zhu Qing’an lightly, but the force was unexpectedly strong, and Zhu Qing’an didn’t have time to struggle before he fell into the door.
His consciousness sank, and a warm feeling wrapped around his whole body.
–He was familiar with this feeling. He had this feeling when he entered the hidden storyline in the game.
Was the government …… letting him enter a virtual world?
White light flashed and the warmth gradually dispersed.
Zhu Qing’an opened his heavy eyelids and the scene that came into his eyes made his heart tremble and a sad and helpless feeling rushed to his mind.
The place he was in – was the home he had only seen as a child.
Zhu Qing’an was sitting in the living room sofa, and the big holographic screen in front of him was playing a flowery movie. He fished out the remote control and turned off the screen. The dark screen reflected his appearance at the moment.
His body still looked like a teenager, the same as it was now.
A gentle female voice, which couldn’t be more familiar, reached his ears: “An An, it’s time to eat.”
Zhu Qing’an: “……?”
He subconsciously looked at the sound and saw his mother, wearing an apron, standing in front of him.
That was his mother who had been pulverized at the hands of the Zergs three hundred years ago.
He called out “Mom” with a slight strain in his throat.
“Come and eat, I’ve made your favorite.” The woman took Zhu Qing’an’s hand and led him to the dining table.
The small three-person dining table had a few dishes on it. All were very simple home-cooked dishes, but the aroma emitted seemed unusually delicious and warm.
Zhu Qing’an sat down in a daze.
Next to him sat his father.
The man was still wearing a pair of glasses, meticulously reading a newspaper. When he saw that everyone had arrived, he put down the newspaper.
Zhu Qing’an looked at him quietly until he was poked in the shoulder by his mother. The woman raised the corners of her lips, gave Zhu Qing’an a piece of meat: “An An. How are you and your date …… getting along?”
Zhu Qing’an paused and frowned: “What date?”
“Qin Hengyi, the one whose family is quite rich.”
Zhu Qing’an: “…………”
He didn’t answer his mother’s question, “Dad, Mom, what kind of work do you do now?”
“What’s wrong with you, An An? How come you don’t even remember this? I’m a teacher at a university, and so is your father.”
Zhu Qing’an: “Then do you know the profession of world administrator? Is there a Zerg race in this world ……?”
The woman was even more surprised: “What’s all that?”
Zhu Qing’an was silent.
He gradually understood what was going on.
The government had forced him into a virtual world.
In this world, there were no world administrators, no Zergs that brutalized people ……
Zhu Qing’an also didn’t have a serious illness that required hibernation for three hundred years.
His parents, not scientists desperate for scientific research, could have taken him to the amusement park many times.
They were much less desperate to die at the hands of the Zergs.
Even Qin Hengyi.
He was also just an ordinary person living peacefully in the empire, not an AI burdened with doubt and suffering.
No blo-odshot eyes, no memory loss ……
They were all very happy.
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
Unspeakable emotions welled up inside him.
His mother answered a call and exclaimed, “Hey, An An, Qin Hengyi asked you out this afternoon. You should hurry up and get ready.”
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
Let’s take a step first and see.
He didn’t think the government would be so kind as to let him experience such a world for once.
Zhu Qing’an hurriedly finished his meal and returned to his familiar room.
His life followed the trajectory of his existence without hibernation and without Qin Hengyi. He went to school and graduated normally, just like an ordinary child.
He opened his closet, which had several sets of school uniforms in addition to his civilian clothes.
He picked a set of black pants and shirt, carefully put them on, and then prepared to meet with Qin Hengyi.
He was a little curious about what this world’s Qin Hengyi would be like.
After saying goodbye to his parents, Zhu Qing’an went to the big park near the imperial capital as he had agreed.
Qin Hengyi had been waiting for him for a long time.
The man wasn’t wearing a very formal suit, he was draped in a beige coat. He was very handsome. As soon as he saw Zhu Qing’an, he gently called out, “An An.”
His blue eyes seemed to be bluer than the blue sky, and when the breeze blew, his eyes seemed to be able to ripple transparently.
For some reason, Zhu Qing’an couldn’t help but approach the other even though he knew he was a fake. “What can I do for you?”
Qin Hengyi habitually wrapped his arms around his slim waist and buried his chin in the nest of his shoulder: “You’re so cute.”
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
Qin Hengyi said carelessly, “An An, I want to organize a wedding for us.”
Zhu Qing’an jerked to a halt.
Qin Hengyi held Zhu Qing’an’s shoulders and gently pecked the corner of his lips.
The man’s voice was very nice, but at this moment it was inexplicably more somber and low.
“After the wedding is held, you will stay here forever.”
” An An, are you willing to hold the wedding?”
This was obviously a normal conversation between lovers. But Zhu Qing’an was flooded with discomfort.
He instantly understood – why the government had set up such a virtual world for him.
In this world, there was everything that Zhu Qing’an had ever fantasized about, and there were also people and things that Zhu Qing’an had lost.
The government gave such a temptation, trying to make Zhu Qing’an stay within the virtual world.
Such an example wasn’t unheard of in the Empire. Some people who were desperate chose to upload their consciousness to the virtual world, while their physical bodies in reality were destroyed and they stayed in the wonderful virtual world forever.
Once Zhu Qing’an chose to stay forever in this dream-like world.
He would never wake up again in reality, it was equivalent to death.
But he wouldn’t be kil-led by the government, but by his own choice.
In reality, Qin Hengyi, after learning that his lover left him because of a beautiful dream. His will would collapsed and the government would have the opportunity to take advantage of the situation.
Zhu Qing’an froze, his hands subconsciously pushed away the man in front of him.
Qin Hengyi didn’ty leave, but embraced Zhu Qingan more tightly, he said in a hoarse voice: “An An, why don’t you promise me? Do you want to stay by my side?” His voice was wrapped in a bit of anger, as if he would eat him alive if Zhu Qing’an didn’t promise him.
Zhu Qing’an pursed his lips and didn’t say anything
Once he agreed to this Qin Hengyi’s request to stay by his side. It was the same as promising to stay in this world.
“An An? Look at you here, how happy you are, why don’t you promise me? ……” The man laughed, his handsome face held a little hostility: “I can give you so much happiness, the amusement park I gave you is built, do you want to go see it?”
Qin Hengyi took Zhu Qingan’s hand: “Let’s go, let’s go see.”
The man took him to a very luxurious and high-class airship.
The airship quietly sailed into the sky and came to the outskirts of the empire.
Zhu Qing’an saw the amusement park that Qin Hengyi was going to give him.
He finally understood why there were so many people that were willing to live forever in the virtual world.
