Chapter 18 – A Look of Expectation (7.1)
“The nobles are corrupted and the Capital Star is already rotting.” Yu Jingmo stretched out his hand towards him and said with a smile, “An Ji, come with me ot the Junk Star to create a world of freedom and equality.”
No, don’t go, reject him, fast! Junk Star has no freedom and equality at all, only a new round of oppression!
An Ji yelled crazily at his former self, but it was as if they were separated by a layer of fog. He could only watch helplessly as he former self, who was full of hope, stepped into a trap.
“An Ji, help us make a decision! A group of beta soldiers came to the hospital yesterday, they… they took advantage of us while we were bandaging them up to tease us and one of them even put his hand up my skirt! He told me to marry him and even give him a baby! Why? Haven’t we come to an equal world?”

“You’re asking me why I touched her butt? Heh, isn’t it obvious? You omegas eat our food and use our things, so what if we tell you to give birth to children? Isn’t this your duty? Besides giving birth, what else can you do?”
“An Ji, you have to understand where I’m coming from. The army has so many young and vigorous betas. It’s normal for them to not be able to control themselves when they see so many tender and lovely omegas wandering about.”
[T/N: I really hate this kind of talk…]
“Traitor! Since you said you didn’t betray the organization, you should break up with Yu Jingmo right now!”
“Go on, the gland is just a product of the oppression you face. After the operation, you will be completely free.”
“If the research is successful, we will be able to mass produce soldiers with strong mental power, and when that time comes seizing the empire will be like shooting fish in a barrel.”
The intense pain spread from the back of his neck to every corner of his body. An Ji twisted his fingers into the bed sheets. His clothes were a mess. It was as if he was in great pain.
Immediately afterwards, time quickly went backwards.
An Ji saw Li Rong leading the imperial fleet to attack the Junk Star with a solemn expression and sad eyes.

He saw his parents kneeling in front of An Ning, humble and lowly, like ants, while An Ning stood high above them with a face full of disdain: “You hypocritical aristocrats, every pore is filled with filth. Hand over your property, and I will return An Ji’s body to you.”
Scenes of the past kept flashing in front of his eyes, accompanied by a burst of earth-shaking pain. It was as if a cold poisonous snake was piercing him, and even the soul trembled.
An Ji suddenly woke up from the nightmare. His face was pale and terrified.
Wind rustled the white curtains, and the chirping of birds could be heard outside the window.
Today was a sunny day. Flowers stretched their petals towards the sun, covered in morning dew. The sun shone through the curtains onto the carpet, and the duvet was warmed… Everything around him was calm and serene, a complete contrast from the world in his dreams.
An Ji sat quietly on the bed. After a while he lowered his head, buried his face in his palms, and heaved a long sigh of relief.
He liked the sunshine. He wanted to continue to sleep for a while.
Junk Star was at the very edge of the empire, extremely far away from the stars, and the entire planet was shrouded in mist all year round. Cold, gray, depressing, these were all synonyms for the Junk Star. He couldn’t remember how long it has been since he’s seen the sun.
An Ji lied on the big soft bed, let the sun shine on his body, and fell into a deep sleep again.
At the same time, a sneaky figure appeared outside the window.
That sneaky figure was An Can, who just came back from an alien galaxy this morning.
After hearing that An Ji ran away from home, An Can rushed out in the mecha without saying a word. Unexpectedly, after busying about for a long time, someone told him that An Ji didn’t run away from home at all, but that he just had a date with his fiancé.
An Can was so angry he couldn’t breathe. He rushed all the way back home and finally got back in the morning. He came to An Ji’s room without even pausing to drink a mouthful of water.

An Can and An Ji were biological brothers who grew up together. They spent ten years wandering outside, dependent on each other. It stood to reason that they had a very affectionate relationship with each other.
However, An Can’s expression at this moment was completely different from expected.
The young man’s sharp facial features were stained with anger. He stared at An Ji, who was lying on the bed, as if he wanted to firmly imprint the other’s image in his mind’s eyes, or as if he was about to rush up, tear him apart, and stuff him into his stomach.
He didn’t understand, if An Ji wanted to leave, then why didn’t he take An Can with him? They were obviously such close brothers.
On the Junk Star, An Ji didn’t abandon him even in the most difficult of times, but when they returned to the Capital Star, that man actually left him behind to run away on his own!
Up till now, An Can could still recall his feelings when he was abandoned, surprise, panic, loss… followed by anger!
It was obvious that he did not care where he was as long as he could be by his brother’s side.
An Can stared at An Ji without restraint. His dark pupils were full of possessiveness. He didn’t know why his brother came back again, but he knew that he would never let the other person leave him.
