“Bro… Brother-in-law, why… why did you do this to me? I… I just wanted to destroy a wooden statue… Gu Xijiu is still alive, but she built a credit temple for herself; how could you allow it? Even you don’t have one…”
‘Brother-in-law?! The Lord was the brother-in-law of this princess mermaid?’ It was definitely breaking news to the ordinary people. At this moment, everyone was looking at each other with a shocked expression.
Lan Yaoguang just could not wait to shut his sister’s mouth up! He immediately yelled, “Jingyi! Shut up! Xijiu is also our sister! She…”
“She’s not.” Di Fuyi suddenly interrupted Lan Yaoguang.
Lan Yaoguang glimpsed at Di Fuyi with his mouth wide open. “Brother Huang, I thought you told us that Xijiu was reincarnated from one of my sister’s souls…?”
“She has nothing to do with Lan Jingke.” Di Fuyi casually continued, “She’s always been herself; no one else. Lan Jingke has passed away, and she is truly dead; just like how the other mermaids’ souls have broken into pieces, she will never be reborn again…”
Lan Yaoguang’s face turned pale, and he took a step back. “How… how is it possible? Brother Huang, I thought you said…”
“Lan Jingke was worried about you and your sister, and she was afraid that you might end up doing something silly as a result of depression; hence, she begged me to design a lie so that you will have something as your mental support…” Di Fuyi explained in an icy tone.
Lan Yaoguang stuttered, “But…”
“There is nothing much for you to argue with me. Yaoguang, I’ll definitely take care of you and your sister since I’ve promised your eldest sister to do so when she passed away during the battle; that’s also why I helped you to manage all the administrative works of the mermaid kingdom and even helped you to ascend the throne. In fact, I’ve already repaid your sister since you have already dominated the entire ocean for more than 5000 years…
Lan Yaoguang remained silent.
That was true, The Lord had been supporting him for a few thousand years, and he made the mermaid kingdom grow stronger than ever before; he also helped the mermaid clan to kill all its enemies.
Even though Lan Jingke had helped The Lord before, he has more than repaid them! It was now the mermaids who owed The Lord…
Lan Yaoguang was a smart person; hence, he finally understood after a short ponder. The Lord probably wanted the mermaids to be loyal and take good care of Gu Xijiu’s body; hence, he claimed that Gu Xijiu was actually reincarnated from Lan Jingke…
Upon this realization, he took a step back and glimpsed at The Lord. He sighed. “Brother Huang, in fact, I’d still safeguard her body properly even if you didn’t tell me Miss Gu was reincarnated from my sister…”
Di Fuyi’s eyelashes flashed. “I’m sorry about this.”
It was his selfishness because he wanted Gu Xijiu to have strong support when she woke up… However, Di Fuyi never expected things to go in such a different direction; she felt hopeless and eventually decided to die with Mo Zhao just to fulfill his wish…
Although he was now apart from her and she might not know all these things he had done for her, she would be reborn someday in the future. Therefore, he might as well help her to solve all the problems while he was still alive.
Based on her capabilities, she might not even need to rely on the mermaids’ power to unite this continent and rule it.
Conservatively, even if she really needs the power from the mermaids, she would have her own strategies and did not have to become their Empress.
Lan Yaoguang finally got it as he thought about it. He had a strange feeling because it was undeniable that The Lord had used him. However, compared to the contributions made by The Lord, the exploitation was hardly comparable.
