Part 1

April 19, night.

The air in the hull space slowly began to grow thick. The top of the hull cabin was below the surface of the water, so of course it contained no areas of ventilation. Even the slightest gap would allow water to rush in and the ship would sink.

But Ingot didn’t care about the air. He was focused on Guo Mie.

All the events surrounding him should not have happened, so of course no one could explain them.

Ingot still wasn’t convinced.

No matter how much he thought about it, he just couldn’t explain everything that had happened. He was starting to get a headache, and still couldn’t even begin to piece everything together.

“Did you notice my head?” he suddenly asked Guo Mie. “Does it look any different?”

“It doesn’t seem so.”

“But it’s changed, I know. It’s at least three times larger than normal.” Ingot gave a bitter laugh. “My head is small to begin with. Now that it’s three times larger than normal, it hurts so bad it’s shaking.” He asked Guo Mie, “Do you know why a person’s head will change suddenly?”

“Why?”

“Because I can’t figure it out,” he finally admitted. “I just can’t figure out what happened between you and your wife and son.” He grabbed his head in his hands. “I used to think I was incredibly smart, that I could figure out anything in the world. But as for your story, my brain just swells up, so big that my neck might snap from the weight of it.”

“You shouldn’t have tried to figure it out,” said Guo Mie. “It’s a secret that should have remained buried. Nobody besides the three of us should know about it.”

“Why’s that?”

“Because this secret is a deadly weapon, a weapon that can hurt people. Anyone who reveals the secret will harm not only us, but themselves.”

“Which three people are you referring to?” asked Ingot. “Do you mean General Li, Gao Tianjue and yourself?”

“Yes.”

“But as of now, you need to let at least two more people know. Because there are two people who need to know!” It seemed he feared Guo Mie might misunderstand. “The two people I’m referring to, of course, are me and your son. Everyone has the right to know a secret which affects their life.”

“What of you?” Guo Mie asked Ingot. “What gives you the right to know other peoples’ secrets?”

“Because I can’t not know. If you don’t tell me, I’ll be very hurt at heart.”

Actually, he didn’t give any reason at all, and yet spoke as confidently as if he had given one hundred reasons.

“Also,” he continued, “even if I have a deadly weapon in my hand, I won’t use it to hurt people.” In a cheerful tone, he continued, “Even if it was an actual deadly weapon, in my hand it would become a good luck charm.”

Guo Mie looked at him, then looked at Xiao Jun. He sighed.

“Very well, I will tell you,” he said to Ingot. “There are no secrets in the world which can remain hidden forever. I suppose the time has come to speak it out.”

Ingot looked at him, his
