Only He Can Help Himself

Gu Xijiu was stunned by its response.
“The Purple Cloud Mushroom comes with an immense supply of spiritual power. It will take days to digest one mushroom, and yet you have fed him at least a dozen at once. Did you really think that it is only a supplement? A fool’s haste brings about no additional speed. He is only a Golden Immortal, spiritually and physically, which is not even close to the level of a Mighty Immortal. You have fed him with at least half the power of a Mighty Immortal.”
Di Fuyi’s situation could be compared to astream that overflowed because it was filled with the contents of an ocean- the force would definitely crush the small, narrow river and cause permanent damage.
Gu Xijiu assessed the severity of the situation. “Half the power of a Mighty Immortal? Are you suggesting that the Purple Cloud Mushrooms contain the power of a Mighty Immortal? Did they come from the spiritual power of a deceased Mighty Immortal?” She bombarded the Firmament Stone with a series of questions.
A thought suddenly hit her. “When Huang Tu was immortalized, did all of his spiritual power get converted into these Purple Cloud Mushrooms?”
The Firmament Stone was speechless. It regretted giving out too much information and started to worry about the possible catastrophe that awaited it for breaching the secret. Gu Xijiu was simply too smart. She could infer a lot of information based on a simple conversation.
The Firmament Stone only replied to her with a set of ellipsis. She immediately understood. The Firmament Stone had its own temperament. When Gu Xijiu said something wrong, it would undoubtedly correct her. But when she was right about something which it was not allowed to tell her, it would show her a set of dots.
She never knew that the Purple Cloud Mushrooms were Huang Tu’s spiritual power in the past. No wonder she could only pick these mushrooms once. She also did not know that Huang Tu had the spiritual power of a Mighty Immortal while he was alive.
If Di Fuyi was his reincarnation, it should not be too difficult for him to absorb the power, right? Yet, perhaps they would have had different physiques.
When Di Fuyi first consumed the Purple Cloud Mushroom, there was no sign of any rejection by his body whatsoever. Was it because the mushrooms used to be his own power? Supposing that were true, if he continued to consume the mushrooms one by one, he would probably regain his power to the level of a Mighty Immortal, or even a Great Deity, in no time. Perhaps his main mistake was to have taken almost half of the mushrooms all at once. It was hard to predict what would happen to him next.
“Little Cang, do you have any idea how to solve this?”
“No idea.” The Firmament Stone paused and became somewhat dejected as it continued, “Only he can help himself.”
Panicked, she took a deep breath to calm herself down. She took a look at Di Fuyi, who was quietly meditating. She suddenly felt guilty for letting him consume so many pills. “I am the one to blame.”
“Master, this misfortune might be a blessing in disguise. This is perhaps a challenge that he has to overcome. He will be fine once he makes it through,” the Firmament Stone reassured.
“What if he does not make it through?”
“In that case, he will need a new body. Don’t worry, master. All it takes is another twenty years before he becomes a man again.”
Gu Xijiu did not know what to say. She felt even more anxious after the Firmament Stone’s reassurance.
Di Fuyi, who had been sitting quietly at the side, suddenly added, “Xijiu, rest assured that if I really need to change to a new body, I will certainly take the Firmament Stone along. It knows about so many things, so it will definitely be helpful.”
The Firmament Stone was astonished by Di Fuyi’s suggestion. Was he planning to take it to the grave with him? What had it done to deserve this?
“No way! My master is Gu Xijiu. I shall never switch!” The Firmament Stone fought for itself.
Di Fuyi looked at it calmly. “Xijiu cares about me. In order for me to return as soon as possible, she will definitely send you with me to the dead. Don’t worry. I will make sure that you will not suffer much loss. However, I do not like bracelets. Perhaps I will turn you into a jade that can be embellished on my sword so that you can fight my battles with me.”
