After drowning in disappointment for a few days, Ning Que didn’t have a joyful mood . But he happily disregarded these matters because regardless of his mood, it was a suitable time for drinking and forgetting about his hopelessness . Right at this time, Sang Sang’s illness had resurfaced . Her two little feet were frozen like tree branches in the winter . Even so, they opened a jar of strong liquor and started a drinking festival .

Although the young maid drank most of the large jar of strong liquor, Ning Que was the first one to become drunk . Sang Sang struggled to move him onto a mattress and cover him with a blanket . Afterwards, she went into the cover as well . Out of habit, she squeezed her small feet into his arms .

With the diffused smell of liquor, Ning Que had a sweet dream .

In his dream, he felt the warm ocean appear once again around his body . But this time, he did not reach his arms into the ocean and could not feel anything . The conversation he had with Lu Qing Chen earlier reminded him that he was dreaming . He stood alone in the warm ocean like a stranger or an observer and watched the entire scene calmly .

He smiled and remembered a phrase in the dream, “It’s all an illusion, it won’t scare me . ”

Since he was calm, Ning Que was able to observe the details of the ocean in his dream clearly . The vast and boundless ocean wasn’t blue, but rather it was green . The color was dark but also clear, like a graceful jade .

He stood on the surface of the green ocean and rather than reaching into the slow moving water, he just stood there and observed quietly . He guessed where it would flow next and what shape it would transform into .

Suddenly, two white flowers appeared in the green ocean . The petals were snow white and contained no other colors . They did not have stems like other flowers . They were just a simple and boring white .

The sea waves padded on the bottom of the white flowers . As if they had stems, the two white flowers grew rapidly under the nourishment of the green sea water . All the petals fell into the ocean and transformed into new white flowers . The white flowers expanded throughout the entire ocean and toward the sky . As far as Ning Que could see, the surface was covered with white flowers .

Ning Que watched this miraculous sight and could not remain calm . He softly placed his feet onto the flowers and stepped onto the petals to walk towards the sky . His bare feet touched the fresh white flower petals which bounced him upwards . The feeling was soft and splendid .

…………………………………………… . .

In the carriage beside the grassfield, Ning Que laid sideways on the mattress . The blanket was already half uncovered and there was sweat all over his forehead . In his arms were two feet . The skin of the young maid’s feet were much smoother than anywhere else on her body . They were white as snow and looked almost like two fragile little flowers .

Ning Que was wrinkling his eyebrows and constantly moving his lips . It was hard to tell what he was thinking of in his dream . He kicked the mattress and touched somewhere . It felt very comfortable . A satisfied expression appeared on his face and he remained still .

Ning Que had already forgotten that he was in a dream . Although he wasn’t concentrated, he walked calmly into the sea of white flowers . As a thought popped into his mind, his entire body began to slowly float away from the petals . Then, he flew rapidly to the space above the sea .

He looked down as he flew to an extremely high altitude . The white flowers on the green sea had already disappeared but he could faintly see a red flat surface deep within the sea . The red surface spreaded out to the sides . He plunged into the sea .

He broke the surface of the sea and dove into the deeper area of the sea .

Without knowing how much time had passed, he eventually reached that red layer — it was a layer composed of viscous, dark red fluid . Though it was red like ketchup, it had a texture of blood almost fully solidified .

The peace was suddenly interrupted and the blood water boiled up . There were many faceless humans repeatedly standing up, and falling down . They struggled and cried but no matter how hard they tried, they could not break free from the the thin film that imprisoned them permanently in this silent, bloody world .

Fear crept into Ning Que’s body . It turned him into a stone sculpture . All he could do was stand senselessly by the bloody red sea and watch the soundless brutal image .

The bloody sea became land and with it, the sky was restored .

Ning Que stood between sky and land . He discovered that he was on the Wild Plains . Underneath his feet were countless corpses . Among these corpses were cavalries from the Tang Empire, warriors from the Yue Lun Kingdom, marksmen from Nan Jin, and many Great Plains barbarian riders . Blood flowed out of these soldiers’ bodies and gave the entire Wild Plain an incarnadine color .

Three black clouds of smoke floated onto the frontline of the Wild Plains and looked coldly at this place as if they were alive .

“The sky is turning dark . ”

“I said the sky was turning dark but nobody trusted me . ” someone said contemptuously by Ning Que’s ears .

Ning Que suddenly turned around . He saw no one say anything, only a lot of people looking up at the sky . Among them, there were dumbfounded packmans, unwilling officials, scared ladies, and crazily laughing monks . No matter their distinct dresses and emotions, these people were looking up at the sky as if they were fat geese waiting to be fed .

On the Wild Plains, countless people fearfully looked up at the sky . Ning Que subconsciously looked to where their eyes were focused . Though it was still daytime and the sun was still out, for some unknown reason, the temperature in the Wild Plains was extremely low . Even the sun’s rays were gloomy . The entire world was dark and bleak as if night was about to come .

The darkness spread out from the edge of the world . It was absolutely pure black, and like the white flowers he saw in the beginning of the dream, it contained no other colors . This was the darkness in the deepest region of human dreams .

The people who were looking at the sky were very scared . Ning Que was also very scared, but no one knew why they were scared .

Ning Que looked around searching for the person who had talked to him previously . He wanted to ask him what had actually happened and why was the sky turning dark but no matter how hard he searched, he could not find that person . He could only faintly see a tall figure passing through the crowd, walking out of the Wild Plains .

He yelled loudly at the back of the tall figure, “Hey! Is it you? What is this!?”

The tall man did not turn around . He continued to walk away from the crowd until he disappeared . But Ning Que’s yelling disturbed the people in the Great Plain who were looking at the sky . Some of them complained . “The sky is about to turn dark, rather than observe it quietly, you disturb our final moments of peace . You are such an annoying youngster . ”

The people who complained were minorities . Most of the people looking at the sky in the Great Plains moved their eyes and looked at Ning Que surprised . The expressions in their pupils changed drastically . Some of them were astonished, some were amazed . The rest of them started to cry and their tears fell slowly . A drunkard and a butcher stood beside Ning Que and looked at him quietly as if they were waiting for him to say something . Their eyes all fell on Ning Que as if he represented some kind of hope .

The feeling of been observed by the entire world was weird and the feeling of been treated as hope was eerie . Ning Que suddenly felt majestic and powerful, almost as if he was divine . But he was just a regular person . He did not know what the deal was with the world that was going to turn dark . He was afraid and his fear induced a heart-tearing pain .
