The look in Mu Chongyan’s eyes didn’t change in the slightest. He lifted his right palm up and a report immediately appeared under. He looked straight at Dross, pushing the report over to him, “Second prince might as well take a look at this.”
“Oh?” The small smile on Dross’s face grew deeper, the corner of his mouth lifting up as he held the report.
“This important matter…couldn’t possibly be about you preparing some confidential information for me, is it?”
“Second prince will know once you’ve taken a look at it.” Mu Chongyan’s voice was neither fast nor slow, “I believe that second prince will be very interested in it.”
“He…” Dross chuckled, his interest piqued. He began to get more serious, casting a faint look at Mu Chongyan before flipping the pages of the report in his hand.
However, in the next moment, the smile on Dross’s face immediately vanished, surprise completely filling his eyes and a hint of rage started to wash over him.
Mu Chongyan saw that Dross’s hands began clenching the report tighter, small veins appearing on his curved fingers, his face getting darker and colder. He calmly retracted his gaze and took a sip of his tea.
After a while, the dark look on Dross’s face dissipated slightly and he raised his lids, looking straight at Mu Chongyan.

He paused for a moment, clenching his fist, saying, “…Then let’s do the test right now.”
“Alright.” Mu Chongyan took the gene detector, putting his right hand on the detector’s gene harvesting area.
A small needle faintly pricked the web between Mu Chongyan’s thumb and forefinger before quickly retracting.
After 10 minutes had passed, the words “Test Completed” appeared on the screen of the detector. Dross quickly took the detector and obtained the previous record of his gene test, pressing “gene comparison analysis.”
Three seconds later, the results of the analysis appeared on screen. Dross’s pupils dilated in an instant, his joins turning white due to the pressure exerted in his hand and a faint red flashed through his eyes, lifting his head and looking at Mu Chongyan.
Mu Chongyan stared back at Dross, “If you still don’t believe me, I can’t do anything else because I also only discovered this a month ago, moreover…” Mu Chongyan’s voice came to a stop. He watched Dross suddenly stand up and walk towards in extremely fast steps, and quickly spread his arms out, hugging him.
Almost immediately, the conditional reflex of throwing the person off him kicked in, Mu Chongyan raised his arms and suddenly heard Dross’s quivering voice call out, “Third brother…”
Mu Chongyan’s actions turned sluggish and he became stunned for a moment.
“I’m sorry to have…made you suffer.” The second prince gently patted Mu Chongyan’s back, the feeling of excitement mixed with guilt fermenting in his throat, his voice revealing an undetectable choke.
“…No.” Mu Chongyan was still somewhat taken aback, however, his nose had started to turn a little sour. He clenched his right hand but didn’t push Dross away, instead, patting his back in turn.
“I’m fine, and I didn’t suffer at all.”
Dross’s feelings slowly calmed down and he let go of Mu Chongyan. He really wanted to say what with Mother Mu as his mother, how could he not have suffered? However, in the end, before he could even say anything, he merely patted Mu Chongyan’s shoulder, saying, “I’m very happy.”
Mu Chongyan’s expression also softened slightly and he paused before saying, “Second prince just..”
“Call me second brother.”
Mu Chongyan’s eyes glinted for a moment as he tried to endure that bit of unease in his heart, saying, “…Second brother had just seen the gene comparison report between me and Fenya, why didn’t you suspect that I forged my gene template according to Fenya’s?”
“Intuition, moreover …I remembered something from my childhood.”
“Your childhood?” Mu Chongyan’s gaze changed slightly, “What was it?!”
Dross sat down beside Mu Chongyan and said, “I remember when I was young…when dad told me he was going to give me another brother or sister, I told him I wanted a younger brother at that time to play mecha together with. Dad agreed but when the embryo came out, it was a little sister.”
Mu Chongyan furrowed his brows, feeling slightly suspicious.
Dross continued, “Later on, I heard dad say that he and father handed the cultivation of the embryo over to the Sheng Mu Hospital, the best in the medical field where your false mother was the head of. They said that they wanted a boy but when the hospital started cultivating it, they claimed there was a mistake, they had cultivated a girl. Dad and father couldn’t bear for the hospital to destroy the embryo and accepted the mistake. Now that I think about this, there certainly seemed something odd about it.”
“Mother Mu must have a strong force backing her from behind.” Mu Chongyan lowered his eyes slightly, concealing the restlessness in his eyes, “But I can’t figure out how they were able to do this. How could they mask the sex of the embryo several months later?”
“I’m not too clear of this myself as well, however, at that time, dad trusted Hu Erya very much, which was Mother Mu. Dad also treated Hu Erya like his younger sister so he didn’t doubt her words at all. Moreover…something happened to dad in his third month of cultivating the embryo.”
“That’s after two months?” Mu Chongyan’s face changed, “Isn’t that when you can see the sex of the baby from the appearance?”
Dross’s complexion also darkened slightly as he said, “In short, I only heard father say that something happened to dad and I don’t know the exact specifics of it because from that point forward, I no longer saw dad.”
Dross clenched his fist tightly, “Father is clearly hiding something from us but for what reason? I still haven’t figured this out yet.”
“Second…brother, didn’t you go to the ward to see…” Mu Chongyan opened his mouth and finally managed to spit out the unfamiliar word, “dad?”
“No. Father didn’t allow me to go.” Dross raised his head and looked at the gradually dimming sky, the look in his eyes also turning grey together with it.
Mu Chongyan also lowered his gaze and shut his mouth, no longer speaking.
After a while, Dross spoke again, “To possess gene forging technology implies that they must be an extremely big force…No matter if their goal is the royal family or the entire Sheng Ya, third brother, you have been bearing the brunt. I know that you confessed this in order to ask for my help and not to return to the royal family but at this juncture, I suggest you tell the truth to father and return to the royal family for security.”
“I can’t do that.” Mu Chongyan shook his head, “First of all, it’s because I still don’t have proof that Fen Ya isn’t a royal family member. Secondly, I’m currently investigating those forces so I can’t inadvertently alert them, otherwise, I wouldn’t have disclosed this matter first to second brother and ask you for help.”
Dross subconsciously wanted to persuade him again but seeing Mu Chongyan’s determined eyes, he could only sigh, “Alright, but if you find anything, you must tell me beforehand. If you need any help, you must also find me for it.”
A warm feeling swept Mu Chongyan’s heart, “En, I understand.”
“Besides that, how did you manage to uncover this gene forging matter, third brother? Was it through a drug or a device? If it’s alright, can you give it to me? I want to use it to uncover Fen Ya’s disguise, this way, wouldn’t there be evidence?”
“You can’t. This time, it was all due to a drug.” Mu Chongyan took out the vod drug from his spatial button and handed it to Dross, saying, “This drug was invented by someone from my team. After drinking it, every cell in the body would be destroyed so the process is very painful. If one isn’t able to withstand the process, it would mean certain death. Second brother, if you give this to Fen Ya, there’s a hundred percent chance she won’t even last half a minute and the cells of a person’s dead body have no way of regenerating so you can’t obtain the results of cracking her disguise, instead, those forces will grab a hold of this information.”
Dross frowned, nodding his head when he suddenly thought of something. His gaze towards Mu Chongyan instantly turned sharp, his voice worried and angry, “Why would you use such a drug? Did those forces do something to you?!”
Mu Chongyan looked at Dross with an appeasing gaze, saying, “It’s nothing. Those forces secretly injected a virus in me and the virus’s effects were to completely destroy my constitution within a week, I—…”
“Crack——!“ The table under Dross’s hand suddenly crumbled. Mu Chongyan looked at Dross’s furious face and felt his heart warm even more.
He never experienced this feeling called brotherly affection and was instantly comforted.
“Tok tok tok…” Knocks suddenly resounded from the door, accompanied by Grace’s voice, “Second Prince, did something happen? Do you need me to come in?”
“It’s nothing. Guard the door and don’t let anybody come close.”
Seeing that Dross had somewhat calmed down, Mu Chongyan said, “Second Brother, I’m fine. You don’t need to get angry. I did completely eliminate the virus in my body by ingesting the vod drug but it was not without benefits. This vod drug is able to to draw out one’s potential so after ingesting it so my constitution soared.”
“Are you completely fine now?” Dross didn’t seem to have heard the last few phrases, merely lifting Mu Chiongyan’s arms and looking at Mu Chongyan up and down several times, making Mu Chongyan cough in embarrassment.
“Second brother, I’m really fine. Are you not interested in the vod drug…”
“As long as you’re unharmed..” Dross breathed out in relief. He looked at Mu Chongyan and said, “A vod drug is not as important as my younger brother.”
Mu Chongyan’s lips twitched as he said, “Second brother, I’m giving this vod drug to you but I don’t recommend you use it now. The risks of using it are still far too dangerous, the success rate is one in a hundred million.”
“I know. Your second brother is well aware.” Dross placed the vod drog into his spatial button before picking up the two gene detectors on the table, handing the silver one to Mu Chongyan and saying with brotherly affection, “Tell me. What do you need help with?”
