Who Is Huang Tu?

She wished to present the ruler to Yun Yanli as a gift, but Yun Yanli kindly rejected the offer. “Xijiu, all magic weapons belong to the ones who deserve them. Now that the weapon has chosen its master, you will be the one who owns it. There is no need to decline it.”
Gu Xijiu felt the tug of her conscience about accepting the ruler, but Yun Yanli was completely fine with it and did not mind at all about the outcome. “Anyway, I am happy, as long as the ruler belongs to a member from the Celestial Kingdom,” he responded smilingly.
Since he had already made himself clear, Gu Xijiu said nothing more.
The most stunning views of the mountain lied within its most adventurous paths, so Yun Yanli suggested that they take a walk to enjoy the scenic beauty. “The presence of the magic weapon has proven that the mountain is indeed sagacious. There could be other nice things hidden within its land; we shall look for them as we go,” he joked.
Gu Xijiu agreed. After the long battle, she was actually a little exhausted. A rest would be very much appreciated. Fortunately, taking a walk was considerably relaxing as well.
The lights blazed in the dusking sky. As the darkness slowly took over, the moon appeared three times bigger compared to the view from Earth.
Misty air floated around the mountains. In twinkling lights, the fireflies sparkled like the stars. The view was rather unique. After the adventure, both of them grew to know each other better. They became close friends.
From their conversation, Gu Xijiu was able to find out more. Yun Yanli told her that when the immortalization of the Lord, or the Deity Lord, or the Emperor Lord took place, the heavenly law would allow them to be reborn in heaven. They would reincarnate as Mighty Immortals right away and be treated respectfully with special honors.
Before Gu Xijiu could say anything, the Firmament Stone was seemingly more eager than her. It blurted out in her head, “Master, try to ask him about Huang Tu to know if he has been brought to heaven.”
“Who is Huang Tu?” Bewildered, Gu Xijiu felt that the name sounded somewhat familiar.
“He… He used to be my friend’s friend… Master, my friend misses him dearly. She is unsure if he has vanished completely after his immortalization. Master, please do me a favor by asking him about the man.”
Gu Xijiu felt that something was not right. “When did he immortalize?” She was determined to find out more.
“I… I am not sure. Master, please ask about him first.”
Gu Xijiu asked Yun Yanli about the man. It was obvious that he was well aware of the names of the present Mighty Immortals. He simply shook his head to dismiss the name. “No, the man does not exist.” He then continued, “Xijiu, not all guardians of the earth deserve to be brought back as Mighty Immortals in heaven. The rebirth comes with strict conditions. If they have previously violated a rule or two, their immortalization will be final. They will vanish in the vast wilderness, with no possible existence elsewhere. Otherwise, there will not only be two hundred Mighty Immortals in heaven after so many years.”
The Firmament Stone was shocked. Di Fuyi had acted against the heavenly law so many times when he was alive. The heavenly laws meant nothing to him. He would have acted against the heavenly laws even more if it were not for the sake of Gu Xijiu’s wellbeing.
A man like him would never be allowed to come alive in heaven. It seemed like Di Fuyi had truly immortalized. He was gone, eternally.
It was a shame that Gu Xijiu spent so much effort searching for a man that no longer existed. She was doing so even though she had lost every memory of him.
The Firmament Stone observed Gu Xijiu’s impassive expression upon hearing the news. Apparently, she had no idea what the news actually meant to her.
Was she still going to meet all of the Mighty Immortals? She was not aware that the man was not among the Mighty Immortals.
It was fortunate that she had completely lost her memory of him. Otherwise, the news would definitely be a hard blow to her.
