How Long Do You Plan To Watch The Bustling Scene?
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
The streets were restless with many armed men coming and going at the same time, but none of them paid any attention to the tree by the streets. Certainly, they would not notice Gu Xijiu there even if they looked closely.
Gu Xijiu’s body was hidden by the invisibility spell. Her presence would remain unnoticed unless someone as powerful as Yun Yanli came by. Certainly, they did not think that anyone would have the courage to stay in the city after conducting such a great theft. Even more ludicrously, why would the person choose to stay high up in the trees and watch the search?
The Firmament Stone watched as teams of armed men continued to pass by the tree. “These people did not even bother to look up at the tree.” It sighed.
Gu Xijiu turned the bracelet around her wrist as she said, “The closer you stand towards the light, the less you can actually see beyond it. As the saying goes, the most dangerous place is usually the safest hideout.”
Impressed, the Firmament Stone agreed. “Master, how long do you plan to watch the bustling scene?”
Gu Xijiu leaned against the trunk and said, “A while more.” She seemed at ease. Although her Kung Fu had not improved much, her usual temperament slowly returned.
It had been quite some time now that she had stayed on the tree. In fact, all the soldiers were already assigned with a mission, leaving behind a quiet and rather empty place. Then, she saw Yun Yanli leaving the governor’s house. Soon, he disappeared like a trail of smoke into thin air.
Along with him, there were 18 other men with the same green robes. These men obviously possessed great Kung Fu. Their spiritual power was at least at level nine, or more. As they swept by quickly, their disappearance into the air was accompanied by a flurry of wind.
Gu Xijiu heaved a sigh of relief as she took out a piece of green cloth. She closes her eyes and tried to recall something. The green cloth was what she found from the place where Di Fuyi disappeared. Yun Yanli saw her picking up the green cloth, not knowing that she had been trying to find out the origin of the green cloth for the past year.
All of Yun Yanli’s followers had to wear a kind of special robe, light enough to keep them cool in summer and yet warm enough to retain heat in the winter. Also, it had resistance to fire. The robes were considerably a precious possession, assigned only to his men of the highest rank.
The textile was not commonly found. In every city that Gu Xijiu had been to, she would definitely visit the fabric shops to find out more about the green cloth, but even the experts did not know its origin.
Now, she finally saw the men with the exact same fabric. Her palms started to sweat as anxiety struck. Shenow believed that Yun Yanli had returned to the spot where Di Fuyi was last seen and killed his own man. Obviously, he must be plotting something evil against Di Fuyi.
The question remained unsolved, though. Was Di Fuyi murdered? Or did he successfully escape?
After a year of painstaking search, there was still no news about Di Fuyi’s whereabouts. However, Gu Xijiu was adamant that he was still alive, spending his time somewhere away from her.
Yun Yanli had been very keen on helping her in the search for Di Fuyi. She finally understood that he was not actually helping her; in fact, he was counting on her, so that he could capture Di Fuyi when she finally found him.
Di Fuyi was the son of the celestial god and devil. They were meant to be enemies in their family feud. Everything would be fine if Yun Yanli chose to let the feud go. It would not be so bad for him if he chose to live a free and easy life with nothing to worry about.
Things were, apparently, different from what Gu Xijiu had expected. Yun Yanli was very ambitions. His ultimate goal must be to restore his family’s name by coming into power. Therefore, Di Fuyi would be an obstacle that he needed to get rid of.
Although Di Fuyi was young, he was very meticulous in his every action. Every plan of his was flawless. His inductive reasoning was always on point. The moment he saw Yun Yanli, he must have noticed something wrong about the man. However, ever since Di Fuyi came to this world, his spiritual power had never exceeded the level of a Junior Immortal.
