An Exaggerated Plot Of Absurdity (2)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Di Fuyi did not pay much attention to her at first. She was merely a stranger who was irrelevant to him. Her talent, however, managed to impress him, so he did not mind having her as an opponent for a game or two.
Over time, Di Fuyi grew fond of her. When he went fishing in the Milky Way, he would very often catch certain fishes that possessed an immense source of spiritual power and also tasted good. He would reserve his good catches specifically for Gu Xijiu.
The two men never needed any food; so, Gu Xijiu would finish most of the fish on her own. Day after day, her spiritual power gradually increased. As the video progressed, Gu Xijiu realized that everything in the universe was still in perfect harmony. The main difference was that Di Fuyi seemed to fancy Xijiu, the girl whom he called as his young, little apprentice. They no longer only played chess together; instead, they would often travel from galaxy to galaxy together. Those were happy days for both of them.
Soon, Di Fuyi started looking at Xijiu differently. In return, Xijiu seemed to be quite attached to Di Fuyi as well, whom she called her big brother in purple robes. However, Xijiu’s heart still belonged to Fan Qianshi. She would propose to him every few centuries, but Fan Qianshi was never in a hurry to tie the knot. As time went by, Xijiu grew to have a slight feeling of resentment towards Fan Qianshi, so she started spending more time with Di Fuyi instead.
Slowly, Di Fuyi realized that he had indeed fallen in love with the little girl. However, what Xijiu had for Di Fuyi was merely the bond between a brother and a sister. She never took him as a lover.
One day, Di Fuyi finally proposed to Xijiu. He wanted her by his side, always and forever.Xijiu finally realized how Di Fuyi felt about her, but she clearly knew that the man she loved was Fan Qianshi, so she turned away from his proposal.
Di Fuyi was never worried about rejection. Therefore, the two of them still traveled around and explored places together. He would take her to different wine tastings in the mortal world, or share some heavenly wine with her that he had personally fermented.
Feeling comfortable with the man, Xijiu never had her guard up with him. One time, she got drunk while consuming heavenly wine and found herself high with euphoria. That night, they finally broke the barrier and had sex with each other. It was already too late for her by the time her sobriety returned. Without a choice, she had to agree to Di Fuyi’s proposal.
They went to meet Fan Qianshi and asked if he could marry them in the ceremony. The news struck Fan Qianshi like a sudden bolt of lightning. He could not find a word to express his astonishment by what had happened. In the end, he helplessly agreed to preside over their wedding ceremony.
Nonetheless, Fan Qianshi still felt the need to talk to Di Fuyi in private. He told Di Fuyi about his responsibility as the master of heavenly law. As the man who governed the rise or fall of the universe, he should never have any inclination or prejudice against anyone. Emotions should be avoided at all costs, or else it would be difficult for him to be fair and objective with all his decisions. Should he get distracted by love, all six worlds would be in chaos.
In other words, the master of heavenly law should never be in love. He should refrain from having any emotions. However, Di Fuyi was allowed to marry Xijiu under one condition, which was to resign from his position as the master of heavenly law.
Di Fuyi, however, never believed a word that he was told. He made the heavenly laws, so there should not be any violation even if he insisted on getting married. In fact, he treated Fan Qianshi’s word of advice with contempt. As the master of heavenly law, he proceeded with the wedding without the man’s blessing.
The heavenly law had come into existence for many years, so it had become the principle that paved the way for everything to flourish in the universe. It was the laws that should be obeyed by all. Not even the master of heavenly law had the power to escape it.
True enough, as soon as Di Fuyi and Xijiu were married, all worlds started falling apart. Natural or man-made calamities haunted many places. Most lands were disintegrated and torn by dissension. The six worlds were in a state of complete disorder.
Eventually, Di Fuyi chose to believe in Fan Qianshi’s warning. There were only two solutions. The first option was to break up with Xijiu, so his power as the master of heavenly law would be restored. And, the second option was to surrender his power as the master of heavenly law and let Fan Qianshi assume the role.
