323 I’ll Take You Home (Final Chapter)

“After you were sent to the experimental grounds…” He smiled mysteriously. “You can try to recall what happened then.” He then stood up and headed for the door!

I realized that I finally could speak at this point!

I called out. “What do you mean! You’re saying that everything was just a dream?”

Mr Blond smiled as he waved a finger at me. “Nope. Even though it’s just an experiment, it can’t just be a dream… As for what happened, think about it. Li Shen, what are you going to do now that there’s no one by your side and no one else to protect you?”

I screamed, “You are all mad! I want to go back! I want to go back to the Split Zone! What’s happening here?!”

“Go back? Li Shen, look at this and think about it properly. You’re from this world. How can you keep leaving this place?” That smile was still on Mr Blond’s face as he spoke.

I kept telling myself to calm down, but my hands were shaking non-stop, and I just couldn’t control them. According to what Mr Blond says, everything was just an experiment? It was an experiment that was named Split Zone No. 13 in my head? And I’m merely subject number 13?

“You might not be able to accept and digest what I’ve just told you. If you’re not able to come to terms with being an experimental subject, then just treat it like it was a dream.”

Mr Blond was about to leave at that, but I got up from the bed and rushed to grab him in a bout of sudden energy. I stared at him and asked, “What about them? Where are they?”

Mr Blond looked at me. “They’re obstacles in your brain that I’ve created. Even though they are also experimental subjects like you are, and their brain waves might have interacted with yours, I’m unable to reveal any information about them to you.

“Li Shen, you can’t remember what happened at the very end, can you? Since you’ve completely accepted your second personality through this experiment, your life will return to being peaceful and normal. Why are you so hung up on what happened in the end?”

“What did you say? My life will return to being peaceful and normal? Are you kidding? This is called peaceful? Everything was a sham and I’m left alone now. I’m still lonely like I was before. Tell me how this is peaceful?” I asked in a hysterical manner, laughing and crying at the same time.

Sorrow flashed past Mr Blond’s eyes. “Your friends were among the other twelve experimental subjects, and whether it’s Jiao S or Guan Nie, they’ve both already returned to reality and are living their own lives. You just need to know that they are living well, and there’s no need for you to learn about anything else.”

“How about Nie Zun? What about Nie Zun?!” I cried.

Mr Blond responded with confusion. “What Zun?”

My heart twisted in a knot. “Nie Zun!”

Mr Blond gave me a meaningful look. “No one called Nie Zun had ever existed in the world that I’ve created for you.”

Darkness blanketed my vision as I passed out.

I was discharged half a month later. While I recovered, I finally wrapped my head around all that had happened.

Everyone there did not exist, except for the other twelve poor experimental subjects. Our brain waves were connected in this space called the Split Zone, and I was subject number 13. Our subconscious were sent there so that we were able to conquer ourselves and find meaning and value in being alive, after which we’ll be on the road to recovery once we woke up.

This was the aim of the Split Zone experiment.

Mr Blond was the one behind everything in the Split Zone, be it the space, the environment or the monsters, and even the random passers-by. Now that I think about it, I kept harping on protecting my residents, but when have I ever met an ordinary resident?

It was my brain that was fooling me, because there had only been thirteen people in the Split Zone, including me.

I didn’t know if the rest had recovered, nor did I know where they were. The hospital staff did not tell me how I could contact any one of my friends since they said it was confidential patient information.

Pomelo and my parents picked me up from the hospital, and I promised them that I’d live well from now onwards.

There’s no reason I wouldn’t cherish something that I had once lost.

I forced myself to forget about everything; to forget about Jiao S, to forget about Gaoqin Jiuye.

Oh there’s something else I forgot to mention. Gao Qi did not die. He was seriously injured after the stabbing, but the doctors managed to save his life eventually.

When I met him again, I realized that he and Gaoqin Jiuye were completely different people, and it was something that I had not realized in the past.

Mr Blond told me that Gaoqin Jiuye wasn’t among the thirteen experimental subjects. This meant that Gaoqin Jiuye did not exist and he was merely a dream that Mr Blond had created for me.

However, Gao Qi told me in secret that Gaoqin Jiuye existed, right there in his heart.

I no longer wanted to uncover the truth about this. I was like a puppet whose outer shell looked pristine while its core was full of holes. In my greed to ease back into real life, I forced myself to forget everything that had happened. Except for one person.

Many times, I simply squatted and cried in the middle of doing household chores.

How could it be? How could it be that no one else knew you existed?

Even for Gaoqin Jiuye, Mr Blond could still tell me that he was someone who did not exist, that it was merely an illusion he created.
