Reincarnation: I Married My Ex's Brother - Chapter 798 - I Was Wrong
Chapter 798: I Was Wrong
This scene was especially strange.
Zhuang Long saw Robert’s frown deepen.
Robert said, “Do you know how I punish disobedient children?”
Zhuang Long shook his head.
Robert slowly put on his white gloves and picked up a scalpel from the table beside him. He smiled at Zhuang Long and said, “Baby, Herbert, Dad will make a cut on you. This is your punishment for being disobedient.”
Zhuang Long started to struggle.
However, no matter how he begged, Robert was indifferent.
He slowly stretched the knife towards Zhuang Long’s chest.
The skin on Zhuang Long’s chest suddenly twitched. He screamed loudly, his voice shrill and filled with pain.
“Daddy, it hurts!”
The man cut open his chest and raised the bloody scalpel in front of Zhuang Long so that he could see it carefully.
Zhuang Long saw blood dripping from the knife and groaned in pain. Robert said, “My baby, the next time you do something wrong and go against my wishes, I’ll take out your heart and let you look at yourself as you die slowly…”
Zhuang Long twitched violently, but his body was tied up everywhere. Even his neck could not move, and only his head swayed left and right on the bed. “No! I was wrong! I was wrong!” Zhuang Long screamed and cried. His miserable scream shattered Robert in front of him.
There was no one in front of him.
There was no Robert or bleeding scalpel.
Zhuang Long stared blankly at the dusty autopsy room with a stunned expression. Tears rolled out of the corners of his eyes. He was still crying, but there was no sound.
After a long time, he murmured softly, “I was wrong…”
When it was almost dark, Zhuang Long was still lying on the bed.
He did not remove the handcuffs on his body. He only stared blankly at the ceiling above his head. He remembered everything that had happened clearly. He knew very well that it was not an illusion. He was what he had really experienced as a child.
His father was an extreme control freak and a perverted murderer.
He still could not remember his childhood, but he believed that he could remember everything sooner or later. This process might be very painful, but for the sake of recovery and Xiao Li, he had to remember.
Zhuang Long felt exhausted. He had to rest for a while.
Only then did he untie the restraints on his body and slowly sit up. When he climbed the rope upstairs, he was halfway up and almost fell because of his weakness. Fortunately, he gritted his teeth and held on. Zhuang Long walked out of the gym and left the house. He saw Butler Xi Bo standing on the slope.
When Xi Bo saw him, he said loudly, “Mr. Zhuang, dinner is ready. Come and eat.”
Zhuang Long was indeed hungry.
He walked slowly to the villa and finished all the food in one go before leaving.
When he got home, he sat on the sofa and recalled the fantasy scenes he had seen in the secret room today. He thought about them carefully. He suddenly pulled up his clothes and stared at the long scar on his chest.
This was the mark Robert had left on him…
To think that he had always thought that this was a scar from his childhood heart surgery.
Zhuang Long could not sleep. It was late at night, and he did not want to go to the basement again. He simply walked out and lay down on the lawn.
He placed his hands under his head and looked up to see a starry sky. Beside his ears was the sound of surging waves. The air here was good, the environment was good, and the visibility was high. On a summer night, he could see the broken stars and the Milky Way. Zhuang Long took out his phone, took a photo, and sent it to Xiao Li.
Xiao Li had just finished dealing with her colleagues and taken a shower when she received a message from Zhuang Long.
She opened the photo and saw a starry sky map.
Xiao Li stared at this photo and her memories drifted away.
How long had it been since he returned to Monterey Bay?
Xiao Li recalled the scene of lying on the lawn with Zhuang Long and looking at the stars when she was young. Her lips curled up, but her smile looked lonely. On impulse, she directly called the other party to ask for a video call. After calling, she felt flustered again. Just as she was about to hang up the video call, Zhuang Long’s face appeared in the middle of the phone screen.
Xiao Li’s outstretched hand stopped in midair.
She stared at Zhuang Long. His expression was very ugly. The video had the effect of whitening his skin. In addition, his face was already pale, so he looked even more haggard.
Xiao Li’s heart tightened and she asked with concern, “What’s wrong?”
Zhuang Long smiled and said, “I almost died.”
Xiao Li did not think that he was joking. “What did you do!” Her tone was stern, clearly guessing that Zhuang Long was trying to show off.
Zhuang Long did not answer.
He pointed the camera at the sky.
The lens of the X smart phone was very high-definition, and she could see the scenery in the night sky clearly. Xiao Li stared at the night sky and heard Zhuang Long’s voice coming from the phone. He said softly, “When I lie here, I always have the feeling that I’ve once lay here like this and seen the stars with someone. What makes me feel even more magical is that I think that person is you.”
Zhuang Long probed, “Is that you?”
Xiao Li stared at the charming starry sky and did not reply.
Zhuang Long was not disappointed. He placed his phone beside him, but the camera was still pointed at the sky. He closed his eyes and muttered to himself, “We must have met before. We know each other. We have a deep relationship. But later on, I forgot about you, but you always remembered me.”
“Why won’t you tell me?”
Zhuang Long’s heart ached.
His Ah Li was really stupid. Why didn’t she tell him? All these years, he had ignored her and treated her differently. How sad must she be!
All kinds of emotions filled Zhuang Long’s heart. He rubbed his heart and said to Xiao Li, “I like you very much… The other me likes you very much too, right?”
Xiao Li remained silent.
Zhuang Long did not mind her silence.
He did not expect Xiao Li to answer. He just had too many things in his heart and wanted to tell Xiao Li. He asked Xiao Li again, “That night ten years ago, I actually took the initiative, right?”
“Ah Long…” Xiao Li finally spoke, but it was not to answer his question. Instead, she asked him with concern,” Tell me, what did you do? “Xiao Li sensed that Zhuang Long’s emotions were not right.
What did he do?
Zhuang Long said, “I tied myself to an autopsy bed…”
Xiao Li’s expression changed.
She never expected Zhuang Long to choose such a radical method to treat himself.
Zhuang Long chuckled and stopped laughing. He said seriously, “If I don’t stimulate myself like this, I’ll never recover. I hope I can get better. I want to remember you and know what happened between us. It’s unfair that only you remember.”
