The Culprit Behind The Scenes (3)
The child’s parents were frantic. To save their child, they jumped into the sand without care or concern for their own life. Yun Yanli’s heart trembled at the sight. It reminded him of the time that he had encountered great danger when he was young. His father almost risked his life to save him…
Instantly, he flew over and pulled the child out of the yellow sand. He also managed to rescue the child’s parents at the same time.
Di Fuyi looked at him and saw his compassion for the child. His voice was calm as he spoke, “The eight ferocious beasts would completely ruin this place. Even if you want to save a few of your people, you can only do so temporarily!”
Yun Yanli naturally understood this, but he really did not know the solution that Di Fuyi needed. He looked around at the people who were in tears, and the subordinates who had been desperately fought for him. He was sad and repeatedly shook his head. “I… I can’t help. I really can’t help. I didn’t expect these beasts to appear in the fire…”
His eyes were red, and he could not finish his sentences. He was faintly aware that he was being used all this while. He finally realized that the “God” who taught him all these tricks in his dreams was using him.
His handsome face turned green at the thought, but Di Fuyi did not let him go. “What else did the God in your dream teach you other than the Star Formation? Did he tell you how to break the array?”
Yun Yanli almost collapsed. “The starry arrays were not made by me! I am only responsible for maintaining them!” It would appear that the heavenly being did not teach him the way to break it, and also did not even show him how to set it up.
Di Fuyi found this believable as the starry array in Leguo City was never restored by the man even after Di Fuyi manipulated it. Being such a careful man, it did not make sense for him to leave such a significant matter unfixed.
Feeling disheartened, Yun Yanli stood in the square, feeling that his entire life was a joke. He looked at Di Fuyi, who was only a few steps away from him, and suddenly, he looked up and laughed. “I have been used all this time, but I am able to take you to the grave. I will treat it as revenge for my parents.”
Di Fuyi waved his sleeves and faintly said, “The dreams that you have experienced are not to be trusted. This kind of array could not trap us at all. The ordinary citizens, as well as your subordinates, are going to pay the price for everything you have done.”
Yun Yanli did not respond.
Di Fuyi stared at him thoughtfully and continued, “There is only one way to save the people of this city, but you need to pay the price!”
“What is the price?”
Yun Yanli remained silent again.
The young palace master had been listening to their conversation. At this time, she could not help but jump in and cried, “Master, don’t listen to him! He is lying to you! He is lying to you to weaken you! It’s a trap!”
Di Fuyi did not care about the young palace master. “Yun Yanli, the choice is yours, but you don’t have long to decide. I will count until three. If you don’t give up your arm, I will take my own people and leave yours behind! One!”
Yun Yanli did not wait for him to finish counting. “I agree!”
Everyone around them heard their conversation. At first, the crowd was angry and full of grievances toward him. They wanted to kill him as a form of revenge as well. However, they saw that he was willing to sacrifice for them, so the hatred in their hearts began to subside.
The young palace master’s face turned pale. She suddenly pulled out her two arms from her sleeves. “If you have to use arms as a sacrifice, you can use mine! I use my two arms! Please don’t take my master’s arm away.”
Di Fuyi faintly replied, “I must use his arm. It is useless even you cut off four of your limbs.”
The young palace master was speechless, but there was nothing she could do. In the end, they used Yun Yanli’s arm to try to solve this mess.
