The Wedding (2)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Feng Ruhuo and her alliance were experienced fighters who could recognize an array formation when they saw one, but there was not a thing that they knew about the stage or the danger it posed. Gently, she gave Xiao Chi a rub on the head as a gesture of appreciation for delivering Kun Xueyi’s message. From there, she learned that Yun Yanli’s knowledge of how to destroy the jade statue through came through his dream. In other words, the five-elemental stage was built from some kind of divine intervention. But what kind of power could it actually possess?
The beating of gongs and drums resounded to the skies as the bridal sedan finally came to a stop about 100 feet away from the wedding stage. Yun Yanli got off from the horse and walked towards the sedan. Slowly, he pushed the red curtains aside and carried his bride out.
The bride seemed to struggle a little as the scene carried out. It was apparent that she was seemingly reluctant. However, Yun Yanli did not intend to let her go. With a smile, he whispered into her ear, “Xijiu, I remember you saying that the men from your world would always carry their brides, from the sedan all the way into the hall. Today, I shall make your wish come true.”
He did not raise his voice, but it was loud enough for the people around to hear him. Some gasped in admiration by his sweet gesture. Others cheered for him. There were also some who did not care. All in all, the gesture had sparked some level of excitement in the crowd.
The bride finally stopped struggling. Her head nowrested perfectly on Yun Yanli’s shoulder. He could clearly feel her warm breath on his neck every he exhaled. The more he thought about it, the more excited he got.
Under the red bridal veil, Kun Xueyi was smiling in a contemptuous manner. He was proud of his unparalleled flirting skill. It would be even more exciting when Yun Yanli finally found out the truth. He would surely be disgusted by their sweet exchange. As such, Kun Xueyi allowed himself to be carried in Yun Yanli’s arms from the sedan all the way to the wedding stage. However, they did not perform the formal bows right away. Instead, Yun Yanli put his bride down by the pillar and said cheerfully, “Xijiu, I have a show for you.”
He then turned his attention to the crowd and publicly announced, “Something strange has unfolded in Leguo City not long ago. I believe all of you are aware of it. A jade statue appeared and claimed to be a celestial being. He has deluded the people with superstitions and false perceptions.”
Yun Yanli then briefly talked about the incident in Leguo City and gave the credits of the disappearance of the blood rain to himself. Finally, he added, “I know that you will definitely have doubts about what I have recently achieved. After putting in a great amount of effort, I have finally caught the Devil King, who had disguised himself as a celestial being. He has tried to confuse you about what is right and what is wrong. My people, he has done so in order to destroy the order of society in the entire Shura World. Thank God for His mercy that I am finally able to capture him. Today, I will show you his true colors.”
His words had certainly aroused everyone’s curiosity. They all looked at him intensely, waiting to see what he will unravel. Feng Ruhuo and the rest were anxious, too, for they were finally about to see the jade statue of the Devil King. They started wondering where the statue could have been. Had Yun Yanli hidden the statue in his storage space?
Under the sparkling eyes of anticipation, Yun Yanli started performing a spell. Many streaks of light then appeared from the tip of his finger and flashed towards the five-colored stage. Gradually, a jade statue slowly showed up.
The statue was indeed made of jade, but the figure was too realistic. It was hardly any different from the man himself. The carvings were incredibly intricate.Feng Ruhuo was breathless. The statue was really the Devil King himself! Although she had dedicated her service to Di Fuyi for almost six months, it was truly her first time to see him this way.
