Preparedness Averts Peril
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
It could not be! How could he achieve such a great title in such a brief moment? Nonetheless, it was Di Fuyi who they were talking about.The man’s presence was already a miracle. As the son of the celestial being and a demon, he had always been full of surprises since young. He possessed the mentality of a well-grown man, even at a tender age. Moreover, he was equipped with many magical items supplied to him by his parents. He could do the impossible.
Yun Yanli finally had the chance to catch Di Fuyi while he was at his weakest, but the Divine Lord’s sudden interference had snatched his opportunity away to end the man. But how did the Divine Lord manage to show up in time? The Divine Lord had claimed that he was intrigued by the sound of the lute. Did the lute belong to Di Fuyi? Was the melody played by Gu Xijiu a way for Di Fuyi to communicate with the Divine Lord? Did he make Gu Xijiu play the melody?
If he had known about the Divine Lord’s whereabouts any earlier, why didn’t he play the melody earlier? Also, since the Divine Lord had never acted without his wife, why didn’t they come together this time? Many doubts surfaced, but Yun Yanli was very much convinced by one of his speculations. “Could the Divine Lord be an imposter? Was it only an escape plan for Di Fuyi?”
As soon as he thought of it, he trembled. He tried to link more facts together and recalled that Di Fuyi was a man with many connections. Among them all, there was a man who could actually imitate anyone.
“I need my men!” His tone changed completely.
Gu Xijiu looked at the man standing courteously in the corner, who was still bearing the appearance of Shen Jiuli. She could not quite believe her eyes. The man was only an imitation of the Divine Lord.
Di Fuyi had asked his man to play the role of his own father. It was doneso skillfully to the point where he was indistinguishable from the original person. He even managed to deceive her.
She then looked at Di Fuyi and said, “I can finally understand your escape plan.”
Di Fuyi’s face was still pale as a sheet, but he answered her with a smile, “I had no other way. The enemy is obviously deceitful. Preparedness averts peril.”
He knew that Yun Yanli was not a local and that his Kung Fu was much more advanced; so, he had already planned out an escape plan as soon as he left the Devil Kingdom. If he really ran into Yun Yanli, he would use the imitation to get to safety.
He wanted to wait until they were in Leguo City to find out more about Yun Yanli’s background and what kind of plan he was up to before escaping. Never had he expected that he would have overdosed on the Purple Mushroom pill and that he would almost lose himself.
Gu Xijiu took a walk around the fake Shen Jiuli. She found it hard to believe that his temperament was almost the same as the Divine Lord’s as well. There was only a slight difference between this impersonator and the actual man. Perhaps, only the Divine Lord’s closest men could distinguish the two.
Yun Yanli had only seen the Divine Lord a few times, so he certainly could not tell him apart. In addition, the Divine Lord had been in the Shura World before, so it was not terribly unusual for him to visit again. Yun Yanli would certainly have believed the show.
“Get us back to the Devil Kingdom as soon as possible!” Di Fuyi made his order.
“Yes!” Guardian Jin answered promptly and continued the journey.
Gu Xijiu looked at Di Fuyi again. “Preparedness averts peril,” Di Fuyi calmly said.
Gu Xijiu heaved a sigh of relief before turning away to have a look out the window.
“Are you troubled by Zhu Duqing? Are you blaming me for not calling him along?” Di Fuyi asked.
Hesitantly, she said, “I certainly am thinking of him. However, this is not your fault. Everyone knows that the Divine Lord is not keen on the trivial.”
