The Battle (2)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Before Di Fuyi continued, Kun Xueyi quickly added, “The Star Formation is clearly the root cause behind all the chaos in the Shura World. The Blood Bats, the rain of blood, as well as the madness experienced by the creatures in the wild, were caused by the Star Formation. Our master has thoroughly investigated the Star Formation in Leguo City, and you can obviously see the result after it was reconfigured. The one in this city has just been exposed. You will understand when you see it.”
The audience stood frozen as they tried to connect the dots. Yun Yanli had been behaving rather oddly today, so they were quite convinced by what Kun Xueyi had just said. Many were very interested in having a look at the Star Formation. After all, their fates were closely tied to this magical mechanism.
Obviously, they were also interested in the battle that was about to unfold between the two great fighters in front of them. The chance of witnessing a great battle was hard to come by. Since the Star Formation had already been revealed, the crowd guessed that they would get the opportunity to see it later. Therefore, the epic battle should be their priority at the moment. So, everyone decided to stay still until it began.
The young palace master suddenly interrupted contemptuously, “The Star Formation used to work just fine. My master had spent a great amount of effort and time to keep it going so that his people can have a peaceful time here. However, these people from the Devil Kingdom have completely twisted his good intention to jeopardize his reputation. The Star Formation in Leguo City has been manipulated. No one knows if the one we have here has been manipulated as well. Perhaps they have summoned the dead to fill the formation with malice and resentment in order to create a wicked effect.”
The young palace master expressed her point of view, articulately. Everything that she said was false, but she made it sound believable.
Some of the people in the crowd were convinced. In fact, if Yun Yanli had not stopped them from going to see the Star Formation earlier, they would have totally believed what the young palace master had just said. Nonetheless, things weredifferent now.
“Who do you believe in?” Di Fuyi asked with a smile while looking at the crowd for an answer.
The people answered in unison, “We believe in you!”
Embarrassed, Yun Yanli stood there quietly.
On the other hand, the young palace master was annoyed. “What a bunch of fools! Unbelievable!”
Some people could no longer suppress their anger and started protesting, “If you are not guilty, why did you stop us from going to the other cities to check their Star Formation? After what happened in Leguo City, the only thing you tried to do was to conceal the news. You even arrested so many talented people who only wanted to find out the truth behind the formations and killed them by convicting them of treason. How many of them have you killed? I am sure you know the number. You tried to keep the truth away from us, but the more you tried, the more obvious it became. We had become suspicious of you a long time ago. Do you really think that we are fools?”
When one man rose in opposition, others felt brave enough to follow suit. All of them had enough of the mess. Finally, they had the chance to voice out how they felt.
Being an arrogant person, the young palace master could not deal with it when someone challenged her authority. Impulsively, she wanted to whip the first man who challenged them. She withdrew her whip and used almost all of her spiritual power to launch an attack at him; obviously, she wanted him dead. However, before she could reach the man, a sword swung by and knocked her whip away.
“Gu Qing, have you decided to join the rebels?” The young palace master was furious.
The one who stopped her was one of her closest followers. He was also a man who was born and raised in the Shura World.
“The people of the Shura World deserve to know the truth,” Gu Qing said with his teeth gritted.
