“You are the mighty Beiyan Commander. Why stay here and put up with this persecution? Why don’t you rebel?!”
Fu Shen blinked the water droplets off his eyelashes. Suddenly, he laughed.
All his resentment and helplessness, his dejection, his fellow-feeling, his apathetic insight and bone-deep suffering, were collected in that laugh.
