"Brother, when I grow up I will be your bride!"
In the kitchen, a little girl with a ponytail followed behind Chen Fan with a blushing face.
"So, brother! Don't be sad, it's just a break up! Hmph! Breaking up with my favorite brother is the biggest loss that woman has ever had"
"Lingling, what sort of nonsense are you even talking about, you are too young to talk like this." Chen Fan turned his head while rolling his eye at the little girl behind him.
"Brother is mean, you always treat me like a child!" Lingling said angrily: "I am not a young kid anymore, I am already twelve years old!"
"You just finished elementary school at the age of twelve and now suddenly you are not a child?" Chen Fan shook his head helplessly. Since the breakup he had with his girlfriend a week ago, his little sister Lingling has been talking nonsense about marrying him when she grows up in order to comfort him.
"Go, get out of the kitchen! The kitchen is already too narrow as it is and you being in the way is making it harder for me to cook here." Chen Fan, who was wearing an apron, then forcibly pushed his sister out of the kitchen.
"Grrrr! I am being very honest brother, you deserve much better than her!" Lingling crossed her arms and stared at Chen Fan with a pout on her face. "These women don't know how powerful my brother is, but Lingling knows! Lingling knows you are the most powerful person ever teehee!"
"Yes, yes you go out first and after I finish cooking then we can talk more." Chen Fan looking at his sister looked helpless, he had no way of stopping her little antics.
Lingling is not his biological sister, but his adopted sister.
Eight years ago, Chen Fan's parents who were scientists picked Lingling from a rural area in a foreign land and adopted her.
However, shortly after picking her up his parents who left to go to another mission was then suddenly shipwrecked, and both died without leaving anything behind.
It has been eight years since, and Chen Fan today was a little bit emotional thinking about his parents.
Recalling the past and memories, he walked out of the kitchen with the fried green pepper shredded pork and tomato scrambled eggs.
"Okay, eat and don't say anything until you finished your food!" As soon as he got onto the table, he saw Lingling was about to say something and Chen Fan stopped her with a straight face.
Although he wouldn't take Lingling's words to heart, it was bad that a twelve year old girl would talk about such things.
Zhang Mingyu: Hey have you left your house? We just arrived by car at the location right now and I just realized we forgot to pick you up, can you come over by yourself?
Chen Fan: It's alright, you just chill with the boys today by yourself, I will stay home and look after my little sister.
After sending his message, Chen Fan put down the phone and didn't even read the response afterwards. After he had broken up with his girlfriend a week ago, his friend Zhang Mingyu had planned to go out and relax with him and a few other friends in order to make Chen Fan feel comfortable but in the end, his friends had forgotten to even invite him.
However, Chen Fan has been long accustomed to this kind of thing.
From a young age, his sense of existence was thin and easy to forget, as if he was cursed by God himself.
He was forgotten by his parents while they were on holiday, he was locked inside a internet café as the shop owner closed the doors without telling him. Even the reason for him and his girlfriend breaking up was that his ex girlfriend had forgotten about a date with him for the fifth time, causing him to wait inside the restaurant all night waiting for her until closing time.
During this period, he texted and called her the entire time and yet she didn't respond.
She didn't reply until the very next morning, and her excuse was that she was preparing for an exam in college and she was too focused on her studies and forgot.
Chen Fan didn't believe the reason at all, but he did not get angry or argue with her. He calmly broke up with her and didn't blame her. His heart turned cold and his love for her was completely gone as she had done this multiple times to him.
"Brother, what are you thinking about?"
"Nothing, finish your food young miss!" Chen Fan shook his head and came back to his senses.
He couldn't reveal his thoughts to his innocent sister, his goal was to look after her not make her his therapist.
"Brother, Brother! Lingling has something really cool to show you!"
After eating their dinner, Chen Fan was lying on the sofa while playing on his phone and Lingling who just came into the living room had her hands behind her back as if she was hiding some good treasure.
"Hm? Something cool? Show it to me then." Chen Fan played along with Lingling, but he didn't care about it at all. What good thing could a twelve-year-old girl come up with?
"Okay, here it is! Tadaa~!"
Lingling then took out a book from her back and offered it to Chen Fan as if it was treasure.
"Lingling, where did you buy this book?" Chen Fan stood up abruptly, realizing that the cover of the book showed a mature woman and that both sides of the cover and a title written in bold red text.
THE MISTRESS OF LOVE HAD OWED A LOT OF MEN IN HER LIFE, NOW SHE MUST REPAY THEM ALL IN FULL…
Chen Fan who saw this grabbed the book from Lingling's hand.
This was shocking to him, it was already difficult enough for him to look after a twelve year old girl going through puberty as he doesn't have experience at all with this sort of thing, but he never expected Lingling to read such a book!
"Tee hee, brother did you also discover the power of this book?"
Lingling had thought her brother snatched it excitedly because she had found treasure just like how she reacted when saw this book at the newsstand.
"I am really disappointed in you Lingling, I never thought you would read such a book like this!" Chen Fan said, "Who taught you this? I don't believe you would take the initiative to read this sort of book!"
"Brother, I bought this book by myself, how could I show this kind of treasure to anyone but you, and because you are my favorite person in the world of course I'll be willing to share it with you!" Lingling said proudly with her hands on her hips.
A treasure book? Bought by her own free will?
Chen Fan shook his head, it seemed like he really needed to discipline this girl today otherwise she would never learn from her mistakes.
"The book is really incredible! When I first saw this I was already in love with it!"
Just when Chen Fan was about to shout at her for her purchase, Lingling began talking about the book, which was completely different to what Chen Fan could see.
"The creature on the cover is so cool but so scary!"
"There is also an introduction to the cover, it reads that this is a book about a traitor who perished during Ragnarok? and the rest of the novel talked about war and armies super cool stuff!"
"When I read these words, my body sometimes trembles, and even now I can't help but shiver."
Chen Fan was stunned, "Lingling, what are you talk-"
THE EARTH IS UNDERGOING MASSIVE CHANGES ONCE AGAIN, EVERY CIVILZATION THAT ONCE LIVED ON THIS PLANET IS ABOUT TO AWAKEN, FROM THE GIANTS IN THE FROZEN WASTELANDS TO THE DRAGONS SLEEPING FOREVER IN THE FAR EAST, AND THE WIZARDS WHO WERE SEALED IN THE DEEP SEA…
THE GODS WHO HAD ONCE RULED EARTH HAVE NOW BEEN AWAKENED AND THE AGE OF A NEW DAWN IS COMING…
IN ORDER TO KEEP MODERN HUMANITY ALIVE, ALL OF YOU SHALL CROSS TO ANOTHER WORLD TO CULTIVATE!
A distant voice voiced into his brain like an echo, and the screams of Lingling woke up him in an instant as he saw Lingling disappear in front of his eyes before he could even say a word.
Chen Fan shouted.
The sudden change caught Chen Fan off guard. 'Am I dreaming, I must be dreaming right?'
The uncomfortable feeling began to become stronger and stronger, and he grabbed his phone and began calling his friend Zhang Mingyu to see if he is around.
He rushed out of his door with no shoes and saw that the bustling city that was full of traffic had not a single person in it. It was eerie and quiet, as if a sound of a needle dropping could be heard.
He pinched his thigh hard, it hurt. This is not a dream.
What the voice had said in his head came true, humanity all left to another world but he was forgotten.
'Am I alone?'
