Zayn felt his heart wrench in pain and he had the impulse to cry. He did not even blink his eyes once while being pursued by so many highly-skilled fighters earlier, but now, he was close to losing control of himself just because of Faye’s remark.
He felt an overwhelming urge to bawl!
He could not imagine how much agony and torment he would have felt had he failed to acquire the Aeon Karpos and had to watch helplessly as Faye slipped from his hands!
It was fortunate that the possibility was eliminated now because he had succeeded!
At the thought of this, he could not help breaking into a brilliant, joyous, happy smile on his face that stretched all the way from the corners of his mouth to his eyes.
He wiped away the faint tear mark on the corner of Faye’s eyes gently and said in a gentle yet sentimental tone, “Silly girl, I thought I told you that I won’t let you die and that I have a way of making you become healthy again and remain youthful for eternity. Have you forgotten about that?”
Faye sobbed even more profusely upon hearing his remark. “Zayn, don’t do this. I’m already mentally prepared and I can feel that I don’t have much time left anymore.”
“It’s possible that I’ll die tomorrow. When I’m gone, you must go and look for new happiness. Promise me!”
Zayn did not speak anymore as he cupped her face and kissed her lips deeply. Faye resisted because she refused to let him kiss her hideous self.
However, she did not have the strength to resist the ever-domineering Zayn. He managed to peck her lips.
Next, Zayn did not waste time making small talk anymore. He took out the Aeon Karpos that he had harvested with so much time and effort including figuring out ways to save her.
“Fifi, look at what this is!” said Zayn with a brilliant smile while he presented the Aeon Karpos to Faye.
Faye was stunned upon seeing the shimmery, marvelous-looking Aeon Karpos.
Even if she had never seen an Aeon Karpos before in her life, she could still sense that it was out of the ordinary. “This is…”
Zayn smiled and said, “This is the Aeon Karpos which is also known as the ambrosia fruit. It is a precious treasure that only grows once every 112 years and it works miracles. You’ll be able to recover immediately after consuming it.”
Upon hearing that, Faye was dumbfounded.
“Really?” Faye looked at Zayn in bewilderment.
“Really, of course! Since when have I lied to you?” Zayn pinched Faye’s button nose while he said, “Let’s not waste time talking anymore. Hurry, eat this. You’re going to get well after you have it. By then, we will be able to always keep each other company and go back to the way we were in the past.”
As he was speaking, Zayn began to peel the Aeon Karpos.
The skin of the fruit was tough. Had it not been for his strength, it would have been very hard to slash open its skin even with a knife.
He removed the skin of the basketball-sized Aeon Karpos layer by layer, eventually revealing its flesh that was only the size of a child’s fist. Its scent emanated and filled the entire car.
“It smells so good!” Faye felt energized instantly when she smelled it. Her originally dispirited expression also became much more energized.
Zayn could sense the rich energy from the Aeon Karpos the most. It made him grin even more joyously as he hastily urged Faye to eat it.
Apart from noticing how serious Zayn was, she could also sense the iridescent fruit in front of her was out of the ordinary. Albeit being a knowledgeable person, she had never seen a fruit in this shape before in her life or even heard about it.
She managed to eat two to three bites successfully, and immediately, she felt a warmth that blossomed all the way from her throat to her stomach. It was a very blissful feeling.
