Di Fuyi circled the Fiery Bird three times just to make sure that it was really dead. He finally gave up, knowing that it would never come back alive.
The mussel was stunned at the sight of the dead, solidified bird. “Without the bird, how is my master going to come back up?” The mussel was at the verge of crying.
Bai Ze was still hopeful about the situation. “This cannot be the only one. Usually, the bird comes in a pair. If there is one at heaven, the other one must be in the mortal world. The one here is dead due to the catastrophe, but the one down there should not be affected. It should still be alive. There is still hope for her to come back.”
The mussel was relieved but was not entirely satisfied with the answer. “That will take another five months. Once she descends, she has to stay for at least six months in the mortal world,” the mussel complained.
Di Fuyi frowned. “Is this bird my only way to the mortal world? I know that the immortals from heaven can descend, right?” He was reluctant to wait for another five months.
Bai Ze heaved a sigh. “My prince, there are thousands of different worlds. If you intend to descend, you must go through the Rotary Platform, but the destination is completely random, even the Emperor Immortal has no power to fix a destination. What is worse is that when an immortal from heaven descends, his or her spiritual power will be reduced by half. Also, it will take at least a century before he or she is allowed to leave. This is such a great loss. If you wish to arrive at a specific destination in the mortal world, the bird is your only choice.”
Di Fuyi did not answer. The randomness of the destination frustrated him. Even if he risked everything and took a leap of faith, he could not even be sure that he would end up where she was. If things did not go as planned, he would be stranded in a strange place for quite a while.
Bai Ze continued, “My prince, in my humble opinion, we should wait. Her majestic beings, the mussel and Lu Wu, are both here. She will be eager to come back, surely. It will only be five months; my prince, you only have to endure for another five months.”
Bai Ze was right. Under the current circumstance, he should wait. Time would pass by very quickly.
Within the months of waiting, the hall was rebuilt entirely, filled with an abundance of garden flowers. The buildings were refurbished with carved railings and jade inlays. It was hard to imagine that it was once in ruins.
Di Fuyi did not merely wait for time to pass. He took the time to travel the continent, along with the mussel and Lu Wu. He never stopped searching for her, but nothing was gained.
Lu Wu had a directed audio spell in its possession. It would call her many times a day, but she never picked up. Every attempt ended in disappointment. Her name on the celestial pillar was their only reassurance that she was still alive.
Di Fuyi did not sleep or eat well for months. He was not even interested in meditating. Bai Ze did its best to convince him, but he barely listened to its earnest advice.
Bai Ze was worried, even more so when it thought about Gu Xijiu’s mission.
Gu Xijiu’s disappearance had successfully turned the young prince into a mess.It was worried that Gu Xijiu would return someday, along with her husband. What would its young master do then? Bai Ze did not want to picture the outcome.
The young prince had fallen head over heels for Miss Gu. Bai Ze was really puzzled. A man like its young master would not usually fall in love so quickly. It seemed like he had been cursed.
Determined, Bai Ze took the effort to disappoint him, for once. “My prince, I think you might have overvalued your feelings for Miss Gu. When Huang Tu is brought back to life, she will definitely go with him. Have you ever thought of that, my prince?”
Meanwhile, Di Fuyi was busy looking for her name on the celestial pillar, again
