The Battle Between The Lord And The StandIn Lord
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Long Moyan was not a real hermit. He built good relationships with powerful people and was once quite close to Rong Jialuo. He was also a cunning person; however, he was good at hiding his true colors.
“So, you expected me to come to you?” Di Fuyi asked in an icy tone.
Long Moyan did not expect him to ask in such a frank way. He paused for a second before he could continue. “I was too cowardly. Although I knew about the heavenly secret, I did not have the courage to see you. I have no interest in power. In fact, I didn’t know what to do as this happened all of a sudden… Thus, I thought I can catch some fresh air here… I’m really sorry, I didn’t know you would look for me…”
He managed to answer flawlessly to the extent no one could find any weaknesses. However, Di Fuyi was standing right in front of him; no one could hide or try to fool him!
Di Fuyi looked at him for a short while and realized that his body language did not look like an apologetic man. Apparently, he was just lying… It was definitely extremely difficult for someone like him to let go of his power once he really took over the throne. Although Di Fuyi did not express anything, he had already made a silent conclusion about Long Moyan.
The Firmament Stone was also observing Long Moyan as it coiled on Di Fuyi’s wrist. After all, Long Moyan was the stand-in Lord and he would have many interactions with its master; hence, it must help to inspect him.
Long Moyan was quite handsome, it rated him 90 marks in that aspect. He seemed to have no greed on power based on what he had said earlier. There was mud stain at the end of his robe though. He was a typical hermit! It rated him 90 marks again.
In fact, the Firmament Stone did not see many people before; hence, it thought highly of Long Moyan…
“My Lord, Long Moyan is quite good. I think his spiritual power is already level nine, right? He seems to be a down to earth person. I think you can just bring him along and teach him your Kung Fu…”
The Firmament Stone said all this in Di Fuyi’s head.
“Shut up!” That was what Di Fuyi replied it. He then took a look further ahead and saw a small bamboo tavern behind the bamboo grove.
He flew down and slowly moved forward. Casually, he said, “Let’s go.”
Long Moyan’s face immediately changed as he looked at the direction where The Lord was moving toward.
“My Lord, you came all the way here, let me bring you to the town for a good meal.” Long Moyan quickly ran over and tried to block Di Fuyi from moving forward.
Di Fuyi stopped and responded, “I’m good, your house is just fine.” He wanted to take a look because that might be the best place to find out more about him.
“My Lord, my house is too small and simple, I’m afraid it is an insult to host you there; let’s go to the town for a cleaner place…”
Di Fuyi was doubtful. According to what he knew about Long Moyan, he was also obsessed with cleanliness; hence, everywhere he stayed at was extremely clean.
It was possible for him to own a simple house, but it was almost impossible for it to be dirty. Was he really that humble? Or was there something else in his house?
“I feel a little tired. Since your house is just nearby, I should just rest at your place.” Without waiting for Long Moyan to agree, Di Fuyi continued to walk in the direction of his house.
Long Moyan was extremely panicked! He regretted not concealing his entire house earlier. The wizardry barrier he set around his house was invisible from afar. However, The Lord could definitely notice it when he goes nearer.
Gu Xijiu was still trapped in there. What if Di Fuyi finds out? All of his plans would be ruined!
Long Moyan finally figured out a solution. He quickly ran over and stopped in front of Di Fuyi. “My Lord, I’m sure you want to examine my Kung Fu, I can demonstrate it to you right here. Perhaps, I can make a mansion for you to take a break with my power? Your comments are very much welcomed.” Long Moyan suggested with a smile.
