The Devil King (2)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Secretly, she performed an incantation in her sleeves to initiate the tracking spell. If the man in the carriage really were Di Fuyi, she would know immediately from the tracking spell. She was standing very close to the carriage, so there was no reason that the spell would fail this time.
A few moments later, the result came as a disappointment. Her tracking spell failed to pick up Di Fuyi’s aura in the carriage. Hence, she could safely assume that the Devil King in the carriage was not Di Fuyi.
Overwhelmed by immense disappointment, she was dispirited and obviously uninterested in the rest of the troop. She took a turn and was ready to go back to the restaurant. Suddenly, she heard the sound of a crane. The loud call of the flying crane got everyone’s attention.
“The princess is here!”
“The princess is really here!”
Gu Xijiu looked up and saw a flying crane soaring at great heights with its wings wide open. The celestial crane was three times as big as a normal crane. On its back, stood a young lady in a white dress. It was a very graceful sight as they watched her dress dance in the wind around her slender figure. Slowly, the celestial crane made a landing as it dived from the sky.
Gu Xijiu was utterly surprised. A thin cloth covered the face of the lady in white, revealing only her bright, watery eyes. Like a cold river that was enshrouded in a fog, her mask had certainly added a great sense of mystery to her grace and beauty.
Gu Xijiu was observant enough to notice that the lady was actually the woman she saw in Suiye City. She was the one who gave the Longevity Locket to the child. What she did not know back then was that the lady was actually the young princess of the Devil Kingdom. Could the Devil King be the mysterious man, who used the puppet string and gave the abuser a lesson?
Before the celestial crane touched down, the princess leaped and landed gracefully in front of the carriage. “Brother, you are finally back.”
The troop stopped progressing at this point. At the window, the curtain was pulled away, revealing the man that was sitting within. Finally, the people got to see the man in the carriage. They also got a glimpse of the interior of the vehicle.
The interior was brilliantly decorated with a sense of luxury, but no amount of luxury was comparable to the aura of the man. Casually, the man sat leaning against his seat, covered in robes of fiery red. The robes looked ethereal, making him look as if he was sitting afloat on rolls of fluffy red clouds. His ink-black hair was left undone, hanging loosely around his body. Meanwhile, a red crown piece was placed on his head, further complementing his pitch-black hair and his fair-white skin.
Like the rumors had said, he was currently wearing a butterfly-shaped mask, revealing only his bright eyes and perfect lips for general admiration. He held the curtain with one hand, so people could see his slender fingers and three jade rings that were exquisitely carved.
Nonchalantly, he sat in a relaxed position. He looked just as charming as ever, even when he was casually sitting in the carriage. However, his aura was certainly very icy cold, completely unapproachable. One quick look in his eye was able to make her flesh creep.
Upon seeing the young princess, his stern face broke into a sense of delight as he said, “Yuan Yuan, I did not expect you to arrive before I did.”
The princess gave him a cheerful smile before she answered, “Of course. I am excited to celebrate my birthday with you, brother. Have you got me a present?”
“Surely. I will show you tomorrow,” the Devil King gave her a chuckle. His voice was very soothing, as relaxing as the sound of flowing water gushing over rocks.
“Why do you have to keep me guessing? You do know that I am quick-tempered,” the princess responded adorably.
Delighted, the Devil King leaned against the wall of the carriage and teased, “Go ahead, then.”
The princess stamped her foot lightly in protest. “Brother, you are bullying me again!”
The Devil King gave her a tight smile before changing the topic. “Yuan Yuan, what have you done about the thing that I asked you to do?”
“I destroyed it.”
“Good; well done!”
“Is there any reward for me? Let us unbox the present in advance, shall we?”
The Devil King started to laugh. His laugh was the most beautiful thing that the people had ever heard. He then let go of the curtain before commanding, “All right, that is enough. You should leave now. As for the present, you will get it tomorrow.”
