The Lord’s Arrival (5)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Even though I did not agree with this principle of his, I was unable to stop him. Before The Lord withdrew in isolation, he had ordered me to assist Celestial Master Zuo, emphasizing that he was the one chosen by the heavens and that I was to obey him in all things. That is why I have never questioned his actions and only passed on some of my spells to him, but I had never expected that he was a counterfeit…”
Fairy Queen Li was adept at oratory and managed to redirect all the blame away from her and even drag The Lord down to this matter.
She had her own calculations in mind as well. Although she had stayed by the fake Celestial Master Zuo’s side a lot of the time, the evils that they committed were through his command while she stayed silent. Therefore, in the public’s perception, she was no more than his valuable and trusty ornament whom they never saw being guilty of any sins.
Since the masses did not know the truth and were in deep reverence to The Lord, they had naturally held her in veneration. After hearing her speech, the crowdonly looked at each other and did not refute her words.
Di Fuyi laughed. Although his smile was light, his gaze was piercingly sharp. “I will personally investigate into this matter myself. If you had done it, well, good luck trying to escape; if you hadn’t, you’ll naturally be set free. But let’s leave this aside for now. You claimed that you were The Lord’s wife? Do you know what’s the punishment for impersonating the wifeof The Lord?”
Fairy Queen Li stammered for a while and said, “I am the wifeof The Lord as bona fide as she gets! What are you insinuating with the mention of impersonation!”
“Who made you the wife of The Lord? Who do you have to back you up?” Di Fuyi folded his arms.
“This… Of course, I have The Lord himself to back me up! Why do I need to provemy marriage with him? If youneed a witness that badly, why don’t you summon The Lord himself to testify!?” Fairy Queen Li raised her head high.
Di Fuyi had seen lots of shameless people before, but never a person as shameless as she! Just when he was about to say something, the air was struck with a thundrous voice. “When have I had a wifelike you before?”
It was The Lord!
The crowd was shocked!
Countless gazes were directed toward the source of the voice in the sky, where several people were standing thereon. The person in front was donned in a wide snowy ritual robe. His hair was wintry, his countenance resembling the qualities ofjade with a halo of light around him. His aura was of such a magnitude that it seemed that he had robbed the heaven and earth of its radiance and diminished everyone around him.
He was accompanied by figures of great importance as well, such as Tian Jiyue, Qian Yueran, Hua Qianyan, and Long Siye.
All of the great five heaven’s gift disciples had arrived! More importantly, the always enigmatic Lord had made his appearance as well!
The Lord only appears once in no less than a couple of years. Now that he has shown himself here, the public could not believe their eyes!
After staggering for a while, Gu Canmo’s face flushed with joy and he surged forward to pay his respects. “My Lord!”
After recovering from their astonishment, the others kneeledbefore him with elation as well. “My Lord!”
“The Lord has come!”
“Heavens, The Lord has truly come!”
Mu Feng and the other three followers looked at each other for a while then directed their sight to Di Fuyi.
Di Fuyi was frozen in his tracks and only fixated his gaze upon The Lord without saying a word.
The Lord alighted with swift grace on the podium, his legs stirring no dust nor sand.
He projected an aura that inspired reverence in those around him.
Therefore, the people on the podium prostrated themselves before him as well wave by a wave!
Only Di Fuyi was still motionless in awe, standing out from the rest.
The Lord descended to his side elegantly and put a hand on his shoulder. His voice was as thin as ice but hid with it a certain warmth. “You’ve worked hard.”
