Immense Remorse For His Lost Opportunity
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Logically speaking, the old King Star should have passed the stargazing ability to the new King Star. However, she appeared to know nothing about it. It seemed that the former King Star did not wish for the incoming King Star to find out the truth about their change of power. He genuinely cared for her, which was something very unusual.
There was only one possibility. The old and new King Stars must be lovers, who swore to love as long as they both should live. The old King Star must be trying to avoid breaking her heart by not telling her the truth of his doom.
The old King Star would use any reasons, even with his betrayal, to cause them to split before his final days. He would break her heart entirely so she was no longer concerned about his existence.
He would then hide from the world. It was normal for him to disappear for a few years, even for a few decades. If everything had been properly arranged, the new King Star would never find out the truth about the death of the old King Star. His follower would take his form and make an occasional appearance once every few years, so the world would still think that he was still alive.
After the heartbreak, the new King Star would never ask anything about the old King Star ever again. She would never find out about his death.
Mo Zhao thought to himself. ‘The only one that was entangled with Gu Xijiu was Di Fuyi. It was normal for Di Fuyi to look after Gu Xijiu, but not The Lord, unless The Lord was indeed Di Fuyi. Di Fuyi could be the embodiment of The Lord!’
Mo Zhao was delighted at this sudden realization.
He had heard about the breakup between Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi. Before this, he did not quite understand why their relationship would end up in ruins, given that both of them were so madly in love, so much so that they would die for one another.
He finally understood it all. That was how it was. Di Fuyi must have been scheming his plan for quite a while.
He turned to look at Gu Xijiu with an intense gaze and questioned her, “Di Fuyi is The Lord, right?”
Gu Xijiu was utterly surprised, but she gave nothing away on her face. “What nonsense are you talking about?” She did not know how he came up with the assumption.
Mo Zhao looked away and smiled scornfully. He did not intend to answer Gu Xijiu’s confusion. “If I knew better that they were the same man, I should have tortured him to death while he was still in my underground palace.”
It was a great remorse. Mo Zhao repented of his lost opportunity so immensely. He did not realize that The Lord was once in his hand, but he let him escape so easily.
Mo Zhao gave Gu Xijiu a look so full of pity. He wondered how she would react when she found out about the truth. Would she be mentally devastated?
He decided to wait until Di Fuyi’s death before uncovering the painful truth. Her expressions would be fascinating.
Di Fuyi’s painstaking effort would be all wasted away. He would take it as a revenge for all the suppression that he had to suffer for so many years. The idea sounded very interesting.
Mo Zhao’s mind started to be bombarded with many more crazy ideas. He no longer wanted to murder Gu Xijiu, at least for now. He would wait until the day she found out about the truth. The urge to kill Gu Xijiu started to fade.
He should take it easy and wait for the death of the old King Star before he started to take any action.
As long as Lan Waihu was still alive, he could still extract the blood from her heart. Also, he still had some mermaid tears left.
For the past few days, he had to bustle in and out all because of Gu Xijiu. She was very excellent in causing him all sorts of disturbances. All he needed was a quiet place to practice his Kung Fu and cultivate his vital energy, so he had to keep running away from her.
