Physical Transcendence And Rebirth
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
There was a time when Gu Xijiu stood by Di Fuyi, thinking that they could be on equal ground some day. She tried her very best to be his match, but now she realized it was all her illusion.
He only treated her differently because she had parts of Lan Jingke’s soul. Once the identity no longer existed, she would be nothing more than a myriad of ordinary beings.
Her memory unavoidably reverted to former times with a sort of oppressive sadness, but she managed with a smile. “I have never thought so.”
He regarded her as a total stranger, so why would he give her another way out?
Even under the pressure of his tremendous presence, she tried all she could to stand up straight and look Di Fuyi in the eye. “I said it once, and I will say it again. If you want to punish him, you have to punish me first. I am willing to take all the punishment on his behalf.”
“Xijiu, you cannot do that!” Long Siye’s expression completely changed.
He had got a taste of how the suffering in the Distant Fire Land felt. It was too much for anyone to take. Even for a man like him, he had to suffer the burning flames in great agony. How would a delicate, ladylike Gu Xijiu handle the pain? He would rather take it all on himself.
Long Siye took a step forward. “My Lord, the order was for me, and I went against it. Xijiu did not even know about the existence of such an order. All she wanted was a new body so she could return the original body to Celestial Master Zuo. I heard that Celestial Master Zuo wanted to use the body for a different reason, so she did not want to be indebted to him. She had no other way than to ask for my help. She bears no evil intention. No blame should be attached to the unconscious doer of wrong. My Lord, I hope you can forgive her.”
The Lord turned to look at Long Siye and asked, “Are you trying to bargain with me?”
Long Siye dared not say anything.
“How dare you!”
Anxious, Long Siye’s forehead broke out in sweat.
All these years, The Lord had always been a man of his word, leaving no room for others to argue with him. His orders were even stricter than the military’s orders. His followers would have to follow his orders without question. His issuance of punishments would be an unbreakable law. Who would even dare to bargain with him? Those who dared to bargain would end up with an even worse form of punishment.
His superior position offered no room for a straightforward approach. All his followers would have to follow his orders.
Dead silence filled the air and no one dared to make a sound.
The Lord continued in an icy tone, “Long Siye, you are a heaven’s gift disciple, and yet you always act according to your sentiments. Your emotions blind you. You chose to disregard the overall situation and general interest. If you are not qualified to be a heaven’s gift disciple, you’d better not be one!”
Soon, he launched a strike with a seven-colored ray that surrounded Long Siye.
“No!” Gu Xijiu was utterly shocked. Swiftly, she launched herself forward and launched a strike of her own to stop the incoming attack ofthe seven-colored ray.
In the heat of the moment, she was too anxious to realize the strength of her strike. There was the sound of wind and thunder as she launched the attack. Surprisingly, she managed to return a strike in a multi-colored ray, too. Her defense hit the incoming strike from Di Fuyi and gave it a great thump.
However, her strength was, after all, incomparable to that of Di Fuyi’s. Her attack was strong, but it was not enough to change the course of Di Fuyi’s attack. Long Siye screamed out loud in pain when the ray finally hit him.
“You can try and attack again!” The Lord’s voice was frosty. “I will then make sure that he dies a painful death.”
Gu Xijiu was utterly shocked.
She was completely pale and took a few steps back. For the first time, she finally understood how insignificant she was. There was nothing she could do.
It was her fault that Long Siye was involved, but there was nothing she could do at this point.
