He Was Finally Here
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
The Firmament Stone was utterly shocked by Di Fuyi’s suggestion. It liked to be a bracelet and had certainly not imagined itself as an embellishment on a weapon. It could easily lose its life.
Indignant at the injustice, it turned to Gu Xijiu for help. “Master, what do you have to say?”
Gu Xijiu only sighed. “Little Cang, if he really needs you, I will make anything possible for him. I want him to return to me as soon as he can.” In other words, she was willing to sacrifice the Firmament Stone.
“Master, this is a typical example of a bad friend who places a relationship over a friendship! You must not throw me away simply because of a man!”
“Little Cang, I know you have many solutions. If you can come up with a plan, your sacrifice will no longer be needed,” Gu Xijiu persuaded. She could tell that the Firmament Stone was hiding something from them. Therefore, she joined hands with Di Fuyi to stress it out.
The Firmament Stone was certainly dumbstruck. Helplessly, it finally surrendered. “Let me… Let me think about it.”
In the end, the Firmament Stone finally offered a solution. The Firmament Stone attached itself to Di Fuyi’s wrist so that when the seizure happened again, it would use its power to absorb the exploding flow of energy in his body.
The Firmament Stone naturally possessed some mysterious power that could probably help Di Fuyi get through this great obstacle. However, there were limitations to its power, as well. In case of over absorption, it would have to risk being exploded and end up as a pile of ash. It could only help as much as possible but explained to them all the possible outcomes. Guiltily, Gu Xijiu gave the Firmament Stone a gentle tap and said, “Little Cang, try your best. Do not force yourself too much.”
All of a sudden, an idea came to her. “Is it possible for you to direct part of his power to me? I was once a Mighty Immortal, after all. My power is temporarily lost, but my physique remains as that of a Mighty Immortal, so I should be able to keep some of the spiritual power, right?”
Little Cang was suddenly hopeful. “I can try. It could probably work!”
As soon as the discussion ended, the carriage came to an abrupt stop. Gu Xijiu was unprepared for the sudden brake and lunged directly towards Di Fuyi. Since Di Fuyi had not secured himself, he fell when Gu Xijiu crashed into his arms.
Luckily, the carriage was lined with thick carpets, so they did not have a bad fall.
“Who is that?” Guardian Jin demanded sternly.
“It is I,” a man answered in an icy tone.
His voice sent chills down Gu Xijiu spine, as soon as she heard him. It was Yun Yanli! He was finally here. Had he found out something?
Hesitantly, she wanted to go out and face him but was immediately stopped by Di Fuyi. “Don’t go out there just yet. Let us listen to him first,” he said in a directed audio.
Guardian Jin sounded neither aggressive nor friendly, so it was difficult to assess the situation. “Governor Yun, what is the matter? You should not simply stop the carriage of the Divine Lord. If he is unhappy about it, you will be severely punished for the disrespectful gesture.”
There was a look of uncertainty in Yun Yanli’s eyes. After all, he did not have any proof of his speculations. After a short pause, he continued very politely, “I would not simply stop the carriage of the Divine Lord if I did not have any emergency that would require his help.”
“The Divine Lord is treating the injury of Prince Nianmo and has absolutely no time for you. You should go back now. When the Divine Lord is free, you can come back and ask for his help.” Guardian Hua tried to chase him away.
Yun Yanli would not take the rejection for an answer, so he answered apologetically, “The matter of urgency is related to Prince Nianmo’s injury, so there is no time to spare. I sincerely request the Divine Lord’s presence. If he has no time for me right now, I can follow the carriage first and wait until he is free to see me.”
