Everything in eternity would not change.

Chi Yan had gradually adapted to this kind of life, and would not even pay attention to the numbers on the timekeeper for a long time. It was hard to determine whether this kind of life was good or bad. Here he could get everything he wanted, except for that — close at hand, but he couldn’t ask for it.

It wasn’t that He didn’t want to give it, but there wasn’t any.

Chi Yan still maintained the habits of an ordinary human being, defining day and night for his area according to the timekeeper, and even distinguishing the changes of the four seasons of the year.

One day when he walked past the timekeeper, he suddenly found that the number under the unit representing “year” had become a five-digit number.

He was here, by Ye Yingzhi’s side for tens of thousands of years. In Chi Yan’s original world, he would have gone through hundreds of cycles of reincarnations.

“Ye Yingzhi,” he called the name softly, “Where are you?”

“You should know,” the voice replied calmly, “In my domain, I am everywhere.”

“I want to see you.”

“You are seeing me now.”

“Not like this……” Chi Yan reached out his hand and touched the air in front of him. His voice was a little sad, “I want to touch you.” I want to hug you, I want to kiss you, I want… to be one with you.

Translated by The Red Oak Tree

There was no air in Ye Yingzhi’s domain. There was nothing there. Only Chi Yan’s area had these humanoid things.

His black eyes were full of things that Ye Yingzhi couldn’t understand. But he inexplicably wanted to erase those things. He didn’t want to see Chi Yan like this, he wanted to make him happy.

But he didn’t know what to do.

Finally, he said, “You come out, come outside.”

Chi Yan didn’t know what he meant, but he obediently walked into the darkness.

The moment he stepped into the darkness, a light and fluttering force held him up. Chi Yan felt like he was flying, being held up all the way, breaking through the layers of darkness, and finally reaching a height that he had never reached before.

From here, leaning forward and downwards, what appeared in front of him was a majestic twinkling “galaxy”.

The dazzling galaxy slowly “flowed” forward. On closer look, they were actually countless bright stars above the belt-shaped area moving forward in the same direction. Because there were too many stars, a light belt was formed. It even gave the illusion that this was a river of light.

These “stars” weren’t really flickering, they just looked like twinkling stars. Once they were extinguished, they would never light up again. But as the old stars were extinguished, new stars would light up in the light belt.

Every time the old stars were extinguished, the new stars were lit up. From his perspective, it was like an incomparably majestic light symphony.

Chi Yan had never seen such a magnificent scene before, and was stunned for a while.

Translated by The Red Oak Tree

Until Ye Yingzhi’s voice sounded beside him, “This is the World’s River. Those that are lit are the worlds of existence, and they will be darkened when the world dies.”

Every “star” was a world.

At every moment, an old world was destroyed and a new world was born.

Here, they were actually witnessing the birth and destruction of countless worlds.

Chi Yan froze completely. An extremely intense sadness and hopelessness that had never been seen in thousands of years suddenly struck him.

Sitting beside Him, standing in His perspective, he saw everything in His eyes for the first time.

In His eyes, endless creatures, billions of worlds, were nothing but mayfly, thriving and dying.

Everything was like a cloud of smoke passing by His eyes, only He was an eternal existence.

At this moment, Chi Yan suddenly felt frustrated and physically and mentally exhausted.

He had always firmly believed that humans were the most tenacious and persistent creatures in all existence. The sea could be flat and the mountains could move, but as long as there was enough time, there was nothing that couldn’t be done. And what he had in abundance was time. As long as he stayed by his side, as long as he kept waiting, one day he would get what he wanted, He would look back. As long as there was a glimmer of hope, no matter if it was ten years or a hundred years, thousands of years, or millions of years, he was willing to stay here with Him, wait for Him and guard Him. It’s sweet after toiling hard for it. 

But he was wrong.

Translated by The Red Oak Tree

From the beginning, what he fell in love with was an existence that would never reciprocate and would not know how to love.

An eternal existence.

“Don’t you like it?” He heard Ye Yingzhi ask him in his usual plain tone.

“I like it.” Chi Yan responded softly, slowly lowering his head and his eyes.

Although he said that he liked it, Ye Yingzhi could feel that the human in front of him was even lower in his spirit — his black eyes looked sad. He became more and more at a loss, not knowing what to do and what to say. He was afraid that, like this time, he would eventually become self-defeating. So he didn’t say anything.

Beside the shimmering world, he heard Chi Yan whisper, “I like you.”

“What?” he asked.

“Ye Yingzhi…I love you.”

“…What is love?”

“That is I want to be with you forever.” That is I want you.

The human smiled, lowered his head, and said nothing.

The eternal evil saw something very bright in Chi Yan’s eyes, something that was brighter than the bright worlds that flashed by, and dimmed in an instant.

He had witnessed the demise of countless worlds. He had never regretted or felt sorrow for them, nor had he pitied them. But when he saw Chi Yan’s dimming eyes, he couldn’t help but want them to light up again — looking at him as bright, focused, and hopeful as before.

But after that, Chi Yan always seemed unhappy. His eyes always seemed to be covered with a faint mist, which made Ye Yingzhi unable to see what he was thinking of. He couldn’t understand human emotions. He didn’t even understand why he wanted to understand human emotions.

Translated by The Red Oak Tree

He could only say, “Of course you can stay with me forever. Just like now.”

Chi Yan smiled and shook his head.


One day Chi Yan suddenly asked him again to take him to the World’s River.

Reflecting the shimmering lights in the World’s River, Chi Yan turned his head and whispered, “Ye Yingzhi, can you send me back to the world’s reincarnation?”

He couldn’t see the master of this domain, but he could feel that the other party was there by his side.

Perhaps some of the ideas of mankind were really close to the true meaning of the world. In Buddhism, people had three reincarnations – the present life, the past life, and the future life. Everything that is experienced now is the present life, all the past was the past life, and the life that hadn’t been experienced is the future life.

What Chi Yan knew was similar to this. Endless creatures had a divine soul each, and the divine soul was immortal. They would continue to reincarnate in this billions of worlds, until one day their divine souls were wiped out, and they became completely extinct.

He was originally just one of the most common creatures in this billions of worlds. He was born as a human, with a lifespan of no more than a hundred years and no more than ten lives in reincarnation. The souls could exist in the World’s River for at most a thousand years, and eventually they would disappear like all creatures. The body was like a mayfly, thriving and dying.

How lucky he was to enter this absolute eternity and to meet Ye Yingzhi.

There was once a question asking if Jack knew the final outcome in “Titanic”, would he still want to win the ticket and if he would still board the huge ship.

Translated by The Red Oak Tree

Chi Yan didn’t know. He only knew that he never regretted falling in love with Ye Yingzhi. Even now he couldn’t help but love Ye Yingzhi.

It was just that this love was too hopeless.

Forever and in eternity, waiting for the lover he wanted the most but could never get.

He was originally a human in that reincarnation, so let him return to where he came from.

“Yes.” Ye Yingzhi answered without hesitation, then he paused for a moment before asking, “…Why are you leaving?”

“It’s too lonely here.” Chi Yan smiled faintly, “Ye Yingzhi, I’m too lonely.” Waiting for you like this is just too lonely.

“Can you send me away?” he asked again.

“Okay,” Ye Yingzhi replied without hesitation. Chi Yan said that he was lonely, but he didn’t know what loneliness was. He watched the human become sad in his domain, but he didn’t know what to do. All he could do was to fulfill the human’s every wish.

Hearing a calm and decisive answer, Chi Yan’s eyes darkened and a wry smile appeared. What else did he expect? Did he expect Ye Yingzhi to keep him?

He smiled and raised his head, “Ye Yingzhi, before I leave, can I give you a hug?”


“……Because I love you.”

Chi Yan saw a translucent humanoid silhouette appear in front of his eyes. It was the same as what he saw back then. He smiled again, walked up and wrapped his arms around the other party’s neck, hugging him deeply in the other party’s arms.

Translated by The Red Oak Tree

This is the last time.

I love you.

Even if my soul dies one day, I will love you to the end of eternity.

I love you forever.

Chi Yan let go of Ye Yingzhi and took a step back in the direction of the World’s River.

The human silhouette in front of him raised his hand to him, “I will attach my breath to your spirit to protect you. But every time when you reincarnate, my breath and your spirit will be consumed, and in the end your spirit will become very weak until it disappears…Before that, you must remember to come back.”


The human laid on his back and slowly fell towards the World’s River. Chi Yan could feel the bright and dazzling light spots behind him getting closer and closer, while the endless darkness was getting farther and farther away from him. He slowly fell towards the glinting galaxy, but couldn’t help stretching out his hand, reaching out towards the darkness — even in the end he was still hoping, hoping that that existence in eternity would extend his hand and pull him back.

Seeing Chi Yan falling towards the World’s River, Ye Yingzhi couldn’t help stretching out an invisible hand to him — when he didn’t even understand why he stretched out his hand. Just when he was about to touch the human being, he retracted his hand. He murmured in the direction of Chi Yan’s disappearance, “You can enjoy the warmth of family, you can pursue success in your career, you can appreciate the preciousness of friendship… You can get everything you deserve. But you cannot fall in love with anyone, your heart can only be opened for me.”

Translated by The Red Oak Tree

Because you said you love me.

You said before, that love is to be with me forever.

What he said officially would become the rules of reincarnation.

What an overbearing, selfish and unreasonable rule; a rule set for one person only. When he didn’t even understand what love is.

He didn’t know how to love, but he already knew how to possess.

However, the fact was because of love, one wanted to have it.

Translator Nessie: Okay I’ve translated and uploaded 3 chapters today and my eyes are giving up now. Time to shut my eyes and rest for the weekend. I hope to finish 2 more chapters next week. And I hope that you’re enjoying this novel and my translations too.

It’s the 15th day of the month of Hungry Ghost Festival on 22 August 2021. Believers in my area believe that its the peak of the Hungry Ghost Festival and the Yin energy is the strongest, and more spirits and ghosts will be roaming the living world during their month-long holiday on this day. I was advised to stay at home by evening and not be out until late by my mom. 😂Maybe I should just be home by 3 pm since the cave of the last world opens at 3pm and the Yin energy gets stronger after noon. And the couple is returning to the cave after this. Just kidding. 😆
