The Wedding Crisis
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Yun Yanli’s men were already heading towards his residence to solve the mess. The Star Formation would be buried once again and kept away from the eyes of the general public.
He signaled the master of ceremony to make the announcement. “Now is a perfect time for the bride and groom to take the next step. Please come forward and take your vows.”
Yun Yanli forcibly turned Kun Xueyi around so that they would face each other.
The master of the ceremony continued speaking to keep the ceremony going quickly and smoothly.
“First, bow to the creator of the universe!”
“Second, bow to the master of heaven and earth!”
“Third, bow to man and wife!”
“The ceremony is now complete!”
The first announcement was confusing to the audience. Should the first bow be dedicated to heaven and earth? Who is the creator of the universe? The second bow was changed, too. Instead of dedicating the bow to their parents, it was dedicated to the creator of heaven and earth.
Both the creator of the universe and the master of heaven and earth sounded mighty. No one had heard about either of the names before.
Kun Xueyi was surprised, too, but Yun Yanli did not give him much time to think. He was forced to carry on with the ceremony. In the blink of an eye, the entire ceremony was done. It felt rather odd to everyone.
As soon as the master of ceremony announced the completion of the ceremony, tremendous flashes of lightning suddenly filled the sky. The audience looked up and was shocked by the sudden change of weather. Rolls of dark, ominous clouds replaced the sunny, bright sky. It was an uncomfortable change. Was God against the newlyweds? Many questions surfaced, but none were answered.
Kun Xueyi was quite sad as he had never thought that he would be married to Yun Yanli someday. It was the result of a series of unforeseen mistakes. Was God going to punish him for the mistake?
Nonetheless, Feng Ruhuo was delighted by Kun Xueyi’s misfortune. She barely had the chance to tease him with such an embarrassing topic, so she felt the need to enjoy the moment.
On the other hand, Yun Yanli was really one of a kind. Under such intense circumstances, he still insisted on carrying out the ceremony. He must be really obsessed with the woman. Feng Ruhuo and the rest of her alliance had certainly not expected that.
Their initial plan was to let Gu Xijiu destroy the governor’s residence and uncover the hidden Star Formation. They thought that Yun Yanli would put the Star Formation as his priority and delay the wedding. They predicted that he would rush to conceal the Star Formation to reassure the people that everything was fine. Meanwhile, they would take the opportunity to recover the statue.
Initially, Feng Ruhuo wanted to send a large troop into the city as a distraction but was stopped by Gu Xijiu. Gu Xijiu made it clear that Yun Yanli had put on a show to attract the people of the Devil Kingdom. If the troops really made their way into the city, it could easily be a one-way-ticket for them as Yun Yanli would definitely seize them all. Therefore, they only sent 15 elites from the Devil Kingdom, each with extraordinary strength and abilities.
These men were scattered among the crowd and patiently waited for the signal. When the tension slowly increased, they did not chime in too loudly. They only tried to trigger the people, especially the loud ones.
Yun Yanli assumed that the people from the Devil Kingdom were going to create a state of confusion and disorder in Zhengde Square, so he had arranged to have many of his men amongst the audience. To his dismay, none of these Devil troops showed up even at the end of the ceremony. Instead, he had arrested many innocent people.
Although some people from the audience were temporarily seized, they did not surrender. Curiously, they kept looking back at the governor’s residence, which was now adorned with many glistening starlights.
The more he resisted the public, the more suspicious they grew of him. Perhaps what the jade statue once said was true. Hence, many of them looked at the statue in anticipation. Their hearts sank as the flames continued to burn it.
The flames from the eight bronze pots were burning brighter and brighter. The five-colored stone that was used to build the stage was lighted up as well. It seemed to be emphasizing the color red, which suggested that it was burning hot.
