The lady sighed. “From what I heard, Celestial Master Zuo has eyes only for Gu Xijiu. Your news is therefore inaccurate. Is it true?”
Master Yang quickly explained, “How could Gu Xijiu possibly be a match for Celestial Master Zuo? She is merely a mortal. Celestial Master Zuo only agreed to their marriage because he sympathized with her. The one that Celestial Master Zuo truly loves is you, Fairy Queen Li.”
Puzzled, the lady sat with her chin rested on her hand. “Is that true? Where is the proof?”
Master Yang continued, “Celestial Master Zuo has sent all four of his messengers to be your followers. You have the best vehicle for all your travels. He has even ordered the people to start bowing to you when they see your vehicle from afar. He will not tolerate even the slightest disrespect to you. As for Gu Xijiu, she did not have the same privilege. Ever since she ran away from their engagement, Celestial Master Zuo has been searching for her everywhere. I have personally involved in the search. She, however, is very tricky and has probably hidden in the most remote corner. To date, no one has managed to find her. In my opinion, she must have been swallowed alive by some ferocious beasts, leaving no trace behind, so people will never find her. You should not be concerned with a lady like her. She does not deserve your time.”
The lady broke into a smile and rose. Her dress swayed gracefully with her every buoyant step. She approached Master Yang face-to-face and gently responded, “Master Yang, as a return for your loyalty, I shall exchange a little secret with you. Do you want to hear it?”
Master Yang tried very hard to please her. “Please, enlighten me.”
“I am not Fairy Queen Li. I am Gu Xijiu, the one you talked about.”
Master Yang was taken by utter surprise, with his eyes wide open. He trembled at each word. “You… It is impossible!”
“Hmm? How is that impossible?” Gu Xijiu remained calm and composed.
“Gu Xijiu’s spiritual power should only be at level eight. As for you… Yours is at level ten! Gu Xijiu has been missing for about ten years, so there is no way for such tremendous progress. Fairy, please do not make jokes now. It is not funny.”
Gu Xijiu smiled. “Actually, I have another secret for you.”
She shifted a little closer to him. “I am in fact the wife of The Lord, also the wife of Celestial Master Zuo.”
Master Yang could not believe his ears. “A woman with two husbands?”
Gu Xijiu pursed her lips into a smirk. “I am a woman of loyalty and virtue. How could I possibly have two husbands?”
Master Yang was hit by a sudden realization. He turned his gaze to Celestial Master Zuo, who had been watching them. “Could it be… Could it be that Celestial Master Zuo is actually The…”
It was a huge secret, so he could barely finish his sentence.
Celestial Master Zuo answered smilingly, “You are smart for this time. You can now die a well-deserved death.”
Master Yang was worried. Driven by anxiety, he bounced hastily and quickly raised his hands to catch Gu Xijiu.
Apparently, he was hoping that he could use Gu Xijiu as his shield. Dazzled by a sudden change of sight, he finally realized that Gu Xijiu was no longer standing beside him.
Suddenly, a glimpse of seven-colored ray flashed before his eyes. There was an abrupt pain in his chest. Then, he fell to his knees and to the ground.
Master Yang was, after all, a friar whose spirit power was at level eight. However, he had no chance at all in fighting back. He died immediately.
Gu Xijiu sighed. “I still wanted to ask him for more. You are too eager in restoring the order!”
Di Fuyi flickered his fingers and answered accordingly, “I could not help it. Anyway, the matter is now clear enough, so there is nothing more that we need to find out.”
