The Firmament Stone took a few steps back. “I… I meant our new Lord… There would be a new Lord sooner or later; the substitute Lord could only take over for 300 years, right?”
Di Fuyi grabbed it as he grunted. “Are you sure you don’t want to tell the truth?!” Did the Firmament Stone take him for a fool?
The Firmament Stone still refused to spill the beans. “My Lord, heavenly secrets are always highly confidential and are not allowed to be disclosed! Otherwise, you will face a tragedy!”
“I’m not afraid! Tell me! Don’t you forget that I can also predict heavenly secrets; hence, it’s not considered as leaking even if you tell me.”
“You’ve gone against the heavenly laws several times now; that’s why you’re not aware of this!” The Firmament Stone was upset as it answered.
Di Fuyi looked at it with an icy gaze. “So what you showed me earlier is not a heavenly secret?”
The Firmament Stone could not respond. “That… That was just a forebode! That shows the consequences if you continue to waste your time!”
Di Fuyi remained silent as he stared at it.
Did it mean to say that incidents which were possible to happen would not be considered as a heavenly secret? Who the h*ck was this idiot trying to fool?! Did it really think that Di Fuyi did not know the meaning of a heavenly secret?
The Firmament Stone became more concerned as the conversation went on. Finally, it told part of the truth. “Since my master is the new Lord, she… she would not immortalize or die before the end of her life. She committed suicide using a forbidden spell without approval, and that is considered against the heavenly laws because she destroyed the world’s balance; hence, she deserves punishment. The punishment of the heavenly law is to let her reborn after several years with all of her memories, and she would know that you had fallen. Besides that, she would have nightmares about the past every single night so that all of her memories would feel as though it just happened yesterday…”
That was too ruthless!
Di Fuyi’s face turned pale. “Carry on!”
The Firmament Stone did not hide anything anymore. “If you just leave the world behind and cause it to be destroyed, she would need to oversee a disastrous continent when it’s time for her to take over. All of her friends would be dead, and she would live with regret and hatred. What is worse than being restricted from dying and being tasked to rebuild the entire continent until the heavens are satisfied with her performance? Only then would she be allowed to die and finally be free from suffering…”
Di Fuyi was extremely angry.
“Crack!” A strong table beside Di Fuyi was broken into pieces!
“I was the one who broke the rules! Why should she deserve the punishment?!”
The Firmament Stone trembled and agreed. “You’re right; it’s indeed unfair…” It also thought the ‘heavenly laws’ were too harsh! It was helpless and sincerely felt that was too much for its master.
Di Fuyi closed his eyes, and his fingers were moving in his sleeves as if he was trying to predict something. A moment later, he opened his eyes, and his gaze fell on the Firmament Stone. “I think the heavens got you to threaten me with her safety…”
The Firmament Stone remained silent. Perhaps it was true; the Firmament Stone did have such a doubt too.
It carefully asked, “So, are you…”
Di Fuyi hated to be threatened, and no one would succeed in threatening him. Moreover, he has been breaking the rules for so many years; why would he obey this time?
“What should I do?” Di Fuyi seemed to be more relaxed now.
The Firmament Stone heaved a sigh of relief. “My Lord, listen to me…”
It then told him a series of tasks while Di Fuyi quietly listened to everything. Casually, he said, “I can do all of these, but all the punishments on her should be waived! If someone must be punished, I’ll take it all on myself!”
The Firmament Stone shone and blinked for a short while. Apparently, it was delivering certain messages to Di Fuyi. A moment later, several characters were flashed in Di Fuyi’s head again. “As long as My Lord does a good job and the world is peaceful, her punishment will be waived…”
