Chapter 2586 He Was Not Completely Incorrigible
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Kun Xueyi shamelessly interrupted their private moment. Gu Xijiu finally withdrew herself from her sweet exchange with Di Fuyi and turned to look at Kun Xueyi. He had wrapped Yun Yanli’s wounded arm. At this very moment, Kun Xueyi was looking at the two of them with a discontented look in his eyes.
Di Fuyi threw a stern look at him and said nonchalantly, “Kun Xueyi, what species are you? What do you know about affection?”
Just like that, Kun Xueyi decided to keep quiet. He knew very well that he could not possibly outsmart the Devil King. Hence, he decided to avoid the argument and swiftly switched it to another serious topic. “My Lord, the bamboo man in black has already escaped. Should we clean up the mess here?”
“How do you plan to do that?” Di Fuyi asked.
“We should calm the affected people, get rid of the Star Formations, and treat those who are wounded.” By the end of his proposal, he could not help but give Yun Yanli another sympathetic look. The man was still caught in a daze after the emotional shock of his parents’ passing. “I think he might have lost his soul. He has been sitting here for some time without making a single sound. He is completely unresponsive to anyone or anything,” Kun Xueyi said, seemingly concerned.
“Do you want to save him?”
“I sympathize with his unfortunate encounter. At least, in the end, he has made the right decision and done something good for the people. Moreover, he did not set up the Star Formations by himself. He was only made responsible for supporting and strengthening the formations. He was not the cause of the massacre in the Shura World, but a tool of another wicked brain.”
“When did you learn to be so compassionate?” Di Fuyi said scornfully. “Have you legitimately thought of yourself as his partner after the wedding?”
With a pause, Kun Xueyi argued, “How is that possible? I will never put myself below another man!”
“Hmm?” Di Fuyi answered playfully. “Below another man?”
Kun Xueyi knew that he had said something he should not, so he answered awkwardly, “It is all but a misunderstanding. I did not mean it literally. I am only a little soft-hearted due to the man’s devastations. I have never felt that way about him. Also, I know that he is a straight man, so I have no intention of turning him into a homosexual. I only flirted with him to annoy him.”
He then pulled Yun Yanli up and helped him stand. “Can you man up? If you still think of yourself as a man, you should learn to let go of anything that is beyond your control. If your parents saw you being so depressed, they would definitely be very disappointed. I am sure they do not want you to be a worthless wretched who only sits around!”
“You make it sound so easy! The pain is obviously too great for anyone to endure. He is not a worthless wretch! He is a real man who has a strong spirit!” The young palace master had to jump in and stand up for her master.
Kun Xueyi was reluctant to argue with a girl, so he remained quiet. Meanwhile, Di Fuyi finally took a proper look at Yun Yanli. Honestly, he was never fond of the man.
Yun Yanli had never stopped plotting against Di Fuyi, even when Di Fuyi was unconscious. The former prince had even planned to burn him alive. Additionally, the part that annoyed him the most was when Yun Yanli forced Gu Xijiu to get married.
All these unpleasant encounters were enough reasons for Di Fuyi to kill him. However, the man was not entirely devoid of conscience. For that, he was not completely incorrigible.
More importantly, Yun Yanli was a friend of Gu Xijiu. If he went on with his life in an utterly dispirited manner, Xijiu would definitely be sad for him. Therefore, Di Fuyi was convinced that he should not bother lowering himself to the same level as the likes of Yun Yanli.
He looked at Yun Yanli and quietly cast some spells under his sleeve. “Yun Yanli, your parents’ souls are not entirely shattered. I shall gather their pieces and put them together as a whole before sending them away for reincarnation,” he kindly offered.
