The Lord’s Fury
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
The procedure for swapping bodies was very complicated. It would take about one and a half hours to perform all the actions.
Before Long Siye performed the procedure, he advised her to consider once more. However, all his persuasions were in vain, as Gu Xijiu was very determined. Long Siye had to do it.
Before everything started, Gu Xijiu thought about getting in touch with Di Fuyi via the jade tablet. She wanted to bid farewell to him and to let him know that he should look for others to verify the identity of a true heaven’s gift disciple tomorrow. Once she switched to a new body, her spiritual power would be reduced to level eight. She would no longer be able to activate the spiritual pillar.
After staring blankly at the jade tablet for some time, she finally decided that she should turn it on and say her last words. Suddenly, a movie scene that she watched before reminded her of how painful it was for the female lead to bid farewell to her love in the movie.
She smiled wryly.
The lovers from the movie were madly in love. The scene where the female lead had to bid her last goodbye was very heartbreaking.
What was the big deal about her story, then?
The relationship between her and Di Fuyi was completely shattered, they probably treated each other worse than strangers. He could most probably be considered as her superior leader. Having thought of that, she started to wonder if she should make the farewell call.
Her blind imitation of the last farewell seemed absurd all of a sudden. Hence, she finally decided not to make the call. She should wait until the completion of the switch and send the body back to him.
She also thought about giving up her status as the National Celestial Master. She did not want to continue being his subordinate, as she wanted nothing to do with him at all. She would leave the Feixing Kingdom for good and move somewhere else. She would finally be able to travel unfettered.
She was mentally prepared for the outcome, so she was prepared from the very beginning to deal with the problems that might arise. Everything in the aftermath was well arranged.
She kept the jade tablet, the gift from Di Fuyi, in her storage bag. Everything else that was given by him was kept away altogether. She left nothing behind.
Once the switch was done, she would put the body in the storage bag and send it back to him along with everything else.
Gu Xijiu followed Long Siye’s every instruction carefully. She did not hesitate at all throughout the entire procedure. She was the kind of woman who was very determined in everything that she had decided to do. There was no space for regret.
As the procedure had to be carried out in complete silence without any disturbance, it had to be done in Long Siye’s laboratory.
The exterior was designed with strictly restrictive injunctions. The laboratory was also sealed with many security doors. Even Long Siye’s disciples could not enter.
For security purposes, Long Siye assigned six more disciples to patrol the surroundings of the laboratory to make sure no one could break in.
Finally, Gu Xijiu laid down on the Cold Jade Bed that was made especially for the procedure. The ice coffin was placed next to her bed. The cloned body in the ice coffin had been defrosted. The body lay in the coffin, looking very much alive.
The Cold Jade Bed was piercing cold. The stream of cold air started to penetrate through the acupuncture points on her back. The cold was unbearable, as though her blood vessels had turned into ice as a result of the extreme cold. She closed her eyes and held onto the Wisdom Fruit as she patiently waited for the separation of her soul from her current body.
It was really cold. However, the cold was necessary. In order to preserve the condition of he body, she had to go through the immediate freezing procedure.
If the same situation were to happen to a normal human, he or she would have become a living ice statue by now. But Gu Xijiu was, after all, a celestial being whose spiritual level was already at level ten. Her body thus had an involuntary defense ability. When threatened, the defense mechanism would be immediately activated, protecting her body from the penetration of the cold from the Cold Jade Bed.
It was almost midnight. It was the coldest hour of a day, which made it the perfect time to carry out the procedure for the switch to a new body.
