“Master! Master! Please respond to me! Master…?” The Firmament Stone felt like shrieking.
A faint smile appeared on Gu Xijiu’s lips as she continued to observe the battle. She wanted to let the Firmament Stone suffer a little, and let it feel how it is like to lose all modes of communication again.
She directed her gaze toward the battlefield. Long Moyan had endured countless wounds on his body that rendered him in a state of disgrace. Gu Xijiu felt as though justice was being served!
She had nothing against Long Moyan at first. When she first knew him, she had saved him and had even gone out with him once under Gu Xietian’s arrangements. She assumed that they would be acquaintances at the very least, and had never expected that he would stab her in the back when she tried to break free from the wizardry barrier!
If she did not know the spell to remove the barrier, who knows how long she would have been trapped in his bamboo house! Maybe he even would have locked her up forever to maintain his power!
Although she swore to take vengeance on Long Moyan when she made her escape, she knew that her spiritual power was far too depleted. There was no chance for her to defeat him in her current state. Gu Xijiu would probably have to teleport away for her own safety.
She had already concocted an escape plan. Although it was shoddy, it was the best she had given the circumstances. She had not expected to bump into Di Fuyi once she got out. Upon seeing him, she heaved a huge sigh of relief.
Sitting here now, she felt a strong sense of soreness and limpness in her body. Those were the symptoms of spiritual power depletion. Just when she was contemplating whether to move the boulder below her to a nearby tree, a rocking chair suddenly appeared beside her out of the blue.
Gu Xijiu was speechless.
She looked toward Di Fuyi but he was still wielding his sword and slashing at Long Moyan. Without looking at her, he said, “The boulder’s cold. Rest on the chair instead.”
How considerate! Gu Xijiu got up and laid on the chair. The rocking chair swayed some of her fatigue away as she continued to observe the battle. As she possessed much expertise in battle, she was able to discern that Long Moyan was already at his strength’s end and would be sliced into pieces after twenty or thirty more moves.
Wait! Sliced into pieces?! Long Moyan belonged to the Upper Bound and seems to have a higher status than Fairy Queen Li. When Di Fuyi dealt with Fairy Queen Li, he incurred a heavenly punishment as a consequence. Though being only barely involved in the matter, Gu Xijiu was also punished and almost became a monster.
If Long Moyan was slaughtered now, Di Fuyi would definitely be punished again.He did not have much time left to begin with… So could he still afford any punishments?
Just when this thought came across her mind, the Firmament Stone flew to Di Fuyi’s side and showed the following words on its screen. “Lord, you can’t kill this person! He belongs to the Upper Bound and does not deserve death for his crime. If you kill him, a stern heavenly punishment will befall upon you! You can’t suffer anymore…”
Seemingly knowing the grave danger he is in, Long Moyan shouted, “My Lord, I harbor no ill intent toward her and only wanted to lock her up for a while… Even if I have sinned, I do not deserve death. You would anger the Upper Bound if you kill me! I am the Prince of the Upper Bound; the brother-in-law of the king of the Upper Bound…”
