Chapter 740

"I already knew about this . . . "


His voice echoed in Yui's ears . Her troubled heart started rumbling . Before Yui could say anything, Wu Yan pointed out something which roused her intrigue .


"Sword Art Online, this game is supported by a very advanced ssystem . . . "


Yui clenched her teeth and she lowered her heart . Wu Yan continued telling the story she should have been telling him had he not possessed prior knowledge .


"The Cardinal System is an autonomous system designed to preserve the balance of this game . Possessing vast computational powers, and the power to adjust monster attributes, items, and equipment drop rates, the Cardinal System controls all the processes in this game world . . . "


"Under its authority is the maintenance of players suffering mental problems . . . "


Wu Yan can tell Yui's body is shaking the moment he mentioned this . He bitterly laughed while looking into Yui's face .


"Yui, You're the mental health counselling program (Yui-MHCP001), right? . . . "


Yui looked at Wu Yan with deep shock . She was ready to confess her origins but Wu Yan's words threw her cards into the air and she didn't know how to proceed from this point on .


"Why? How did you . . . "


Wu Yan didn't answer her . Instead, he smiled at her .


"Yeah, I more or less knew about your identity when I brought you home with me on that fateful day . . . "


"From the start . . . "


Yui couldn't believe her ears, her body trembled .


"If you already knew about my true identity, why did you still pick me up?"


"Well . . . "


Wu Yan rubbed her head . He caressed her silky smooth hair .


"Who in the right mind would leave an unconscious little girl collapsed in the woods just like that?"


"Little girl . . . "


Yui tried to shrink away from him with an awkward laugh .


"I am just a program, I am not an actual human girl . . . "


"Is that so?> . . "


Wu Yan turned around, he pointed her towards a certain corner of the house . There are photos with Asuna, Wu Yan, Kirito, Liz, Klein, Souta, Agil, Sachi, Shion, and Silica . . . .


"Look at them . . . "


Wu Yan pointed at Wu Yan & co .


"Yui, do you honestly think they doubted your humanity?"


"Think about it, Uncle Kirito, Uncle Klein, Uncle Souta, Uncle Agil always brought gifts for you whenever they came back from the labyrinth . Meanwhile, Aunt Liz, Aunt Sachi, Aunt Shion, Aunt Silica would come along to bring you out on trips to the cities, right?"


"Now, would someone do that for a simple program? Do you still think you're just a program?"


Yui started losing her focus as she recalled the events she experienced . However, she shook her head when she realized something .


"N-no, I am just ones and zeroes written by the Cardinal . My tears are fake, my body is fake, even my emotions, how can . . . "


Wu Yan shut his eyes .


"Alright, you say your body is fake and your tears are generated . . . "


"Basically, you're like every other player in this world, yeah? . . . "


Yui was stunned .

Wu Yan gave her another big hug .


"Yui, let papa give you a lesson . . . "


In this world, everything's digital, the players are also ones and zeroes walking around . The monsters, their tears, they are all not real . I have to hand it to Kayaba Akihiko, he's got mad computing skills to emulate all those complex stuff . . . "


"But, even if he's very good, I doubt he has the ability to write codes for emotions . "


"Granted, everything you said might be fake, however, I am sure the feelings you expressed are genuine . . . "


He pressed Yui's head against his chest .


"Look? Isn't my hug warm? . . . "


Yui couldn't resist but nod . Wu Yan's smile became even more radiant .


"Okay, do you love papa? . . . "


Yui looked at Wu Yan instantly . Tears started rolling down her cheeks, she grabbed Wu Yan's shirt and she buried her head in his embrace .


"I love you! I love you! I love papa the most! I love mama the most too!"


Her tears made his shirt wet . Her sobs echoed in the room .


"Yui wants to stay with Papa and Mama . I don't wanna leave papa and mama, uuu . . . "


A figure flashed past the living room, the figure grabbed Yui .


Wu Yan was surprised by the figure . He gasped .




Asuna was already tearing up, she squeezed Yui into a tight hug .

"We will always be together, Mama will never leave you behind!"


"Mama . . . "


"It doesn't matter if Yui's Yui, a program, a monster, I don't care!"


Asuna didn't loosen her grip on Yui .


"I know only one thing . Yui is my beloved daughter . . . "


"Mama . . . "


Yui was already crying up a storm . Her tears never stopped flowing for a second . They were weeping and sobbing together .


Wu Yan didn't feel good looking at the mother and daughter pair cry up a deluge . He didn't like the fact that the two people he cared about the most in this world has to go through something like this .


Yui detected the pain in Wu Yan's heart . She stopped crying and she wiped away the tears on her face . She gave them a wide smile .


"Thank you, papa, mama, I will cherish what little time we have left . . . "


"What do you mean by that?!"


Wu Yan's pupil shrank .


"What little time? . . . "


Asuna turned pale, a sense of crisis crept up from deep in her heart .


"Why? . . . "


Yui gave them a very troubled smile . She linked her arms around Asuna's neck .

"The players stuck in Aincrad are already on the 98th-floor . If they kill the remaining 3 floor bosses, SAO will be cleared and players can leave this world . . . "


Her eyes turned misty .


"Three years ago, SAO's nature was changed and it became a death game . Players were filled with terror, hatred, despair, and various other negative emotions . Due to Papa and Mama's active efforts, the perceptions of the players changed towards the positive side . Leaving this world is the sole hope in the hearts of every players in this world . . . "


"Papa, mama, you two are going to have to leave this world soon . . . "


Yui looked longingly at both Wu Yan and Asuna .


"I am an AI program, I can't return to the world with you two . . . "


Asuna's face turned into a deeper shade of paleness . She covered her mouth, her grief made talking very difficult . Meanwhile, Wu Yan chuckled when an idea struck him .


"Yui . . . "


Wu Yan hugged both Asuna and Yui .


"Don't worry, papa has a way out of this . "


"Papa . . . "


Yui was dumbfounded . Asuna looked at Wu Yan intently .


"Yan, you . . . "




Wu Yan tightened his hug .


"You girls just need to trust me!"


Asuna and Yui looked at Wu Yan without saying anything . Then, they resolved themselves and they nodded .
