as suspected of having “cancer”.  If it was a mild case, it would be best to treat it and he would be back to normal.


Ji Mingxia’s fear was that it would be a serious case and not only would he not be cured, but he may also become a test subject.


If it was someone else, Ji Mingxia would have advised them to go for treatment.
It was most important to survive after all, but Yu Ning was different.


Yu Ning was the main character, even if the contamination is really “advanced”, he would not die.
His ultimate fate was ending up as a test subject until he was old…


The thought of this made Ji Mingxia’s heart break.


The Yu Ning in the original story was not bothered by such issues.


This current situation was entirely due to the butterfly effect caused by his transmigration.


From a certain point, he was the one who had brought Yu Ning to this point.


“I know.” Ji Mingxia whispered, “I will find a chance and speak to Yu Ning.”


Seeing that Ji Mingxia was in low spirits, Pei Yuan thought about it and told the other about his team.


They were officially recognised full-time staff under the Department of Mysterious Items Research.
The department had developed since the founding of the country and had already reached a certain scale.


However, because of the specific content of their work, everyone was exploring from the north and south of the world, and they rarely met or communicated with each other for long periods of time.


In the past, it was difficult for colleagues to communicate with each other for years, but with the internet, things were much more convenient.


If Yu Ning intended to go back with him, he would contact the headquarters when there was a signal down the mountain, and have a special officer take them back then.


While reading the book, Ji Mingxia had no interest in the background setting and he had skipped it after a quick scan.


Now that he was in the book, background knowledge was vital so he listened very carefully.
He made passing links to the plot as he listened, trying not to miss any important details.


Time passed unnoticed, and in the blink of an eye, night fell.
The last haze of the setting sun disappeared, and the glow of the moon reflected in the mountains.


Ji Mingxia and Pei Yuan were in the middle of a conversation when they inadvertently turned around and were surprised to find Yu Ning still standing in place.
Bao Guangyuan saw Ji Mingxia turn his head and hurriedly waved his hand at Ji Mingxia for help.


Yu Ning had stood for so long without moving and Ji Mingxia was a little worried.
He only said to Pei Yuan as he stood up, “Bao Guangyuan is looking for me, I’ll go over there first.”


“Okay.” Pei Yuan said.


Ji Mingxia had just walked up to Bao Guangyuan when the latter said with a bitter face, “Is…is everything okay between you and Pei Yuan?”


“Me and Pei Yuan? It’s fine.” Ji Mingxia said strangely, “What’s wrong?”


“Then why did you guys talk for so long? And Pei Yuan kept smiling at you.” Bao Guangyuan muttered, “Not to mention Yu Ning, I also couldn’t stand it.”


Ji Mingxia’s head was simply full of questions, “Weren’t you the one who said you didn’t want to talk to Pei Yuan and told me to go up and do it?”


Bao Guangyuan froze for a moment.
It was only then that he remembered this matter.
Ji Mingxia was on a mission to communicate with Pei Yuan!


Bao Guangyuan hurriedly said, “It’s my fault, it’s my fault, so have you guys finished talking now?”


“Almost.” Ji Mingxia said.


“Why don’t you go and talk to Yu Ning too.
He’s been standing there for a long, long time.” Bao Guangyuan said weakly.


Ji Mingxia glanced at Yu Ning who was not far away, “It’s true that he’s been standing for a long …… time.
Why didn’t you ask him to come over?”


“I don’t dare.” Bao Guangyuan urged, “You go, you go.”


Ji Mingxia looked at Bao Guangyuan’s abashed face and was speechless.


He felt like he was useless, but this Bao Guangyuan, was a million times more useless than him.


However, as an unnamed passerby in the original story, it didn’t matter if he was a bit useless.


It was different for him.
He was also useless but he had a mission to fulfill.


Thinking of this, an inexplicable light flashed in Ji Mingxia’s mind and an idea flew by, but Ji Mingxia didn’t catch it in time.


Bao Guangyuan was still urging him from the sidelines, “Mingxia, Yu Ning is watching you.”


“Okay, okay.” Ji Mingxia tried to think back but it was to no avail.
He had no choice but to first walk up to Yu Ning.


Yu Ning stood in his original position, and when he saw Ji Mingxia walking over, he slightly lowered his eyes to look at him.


As soon as Ji Mingxia met Yu Ning’s eyes, he recalled what he had confided in Yu Ning not long ago.


His face reddened a little, but fortunately, it was already dark and so Yu Ning could not see his embarrassment.


Ji Mingxia tried to pretend that it was business as usual, and briefly told Yu Ning about the conversation he had with Pei Yuan.


He explained the role of Pei Yuan’s crest, the role of the bronze bell, and the Mysterious Item Research Department……


For the time being, Ji Mingxia didn’t mention the possibility of Yu Ning being contaminated.


Yu Ning was already distrustful of Pei Yuan, and telling Yu Ning of such a possibility would just backfire.


Moreover, Ji Mingxia himself had not thought of what choice he should make.


Yu Ning quietly listened to Ji Mingxia’s explanation and said, “You trust him?”


This was a question that Yu Ning had asked earlier.
Previously, he didn’t know how to answer and stammered in defence, but he didn’t want to run away from it this time.


He was willing to trust Pei Yuan.


Thinking of this, Ji Mingxia gave an “mmm” and nodded his head.


He thought that Yu Ning would be disappointed by his choice, but unexpectedly, Yu Ning was very calm: “Okay, then I believe him too.”


Ji Mingxia did not expect Yu Ning to be so nice all of a sudden, and looked up at him in surprise.


Although it was already dark, the stars and the moon were shining brightly.


The cool moonlight reflected Yu Ning’s delicate and clear face.


His gaze had not left Ji Mingxia from the beginning and seeing Ji Mingxia raise his head, Yu Ning looked at him tenderly and whispered, “Because, I believe in you.”
