Fan Qianshi was slightly taken aback by her remark. “Xijiu, you have been brainwashed by this version of the heavenly law. I really regret everything that has happened.”
“What do you regret?”
“I should not have let you live your life in a commonplace. I should never have let you spend so much time with Di Fuyi. I should have taken you away the moment you were created.” Fan Qianshi sighed.
Gu Xijiu slowly swirled the cup in her hand as she listened. “You could not take me with you, even if you wanted to.”
After a slight pause, he continued, “Xijiu, you have always been very bright. However, you are mistaken this time. I could have easily taken you away, but I was not allowed to. When Di Fuyi murdered you, I only managed to collect two pieces of your fragmented soul. The rest of your soul was scattered in every possible corner of the world. In order for you to come back as a whole, I needed to collect all the pieces of your soul. I knew that it was going to be a long and difficult process. Ye Hongfeng possessed a piece of your soul. Gu Xijiu, the daughter of General Gu from Starry Crescent Land, had a piece of you. As for the rest, I already collected them all from many different places. These broken pieces had to be regrouped and placed in a cloned body. As Long Fan, I strived to transfer all the pieces of your soul into one body so that you could finally be revived as a whole.”
Gu Xijiu did not know how to react to that. She never knew that she was pieced together in that way. If that were true, perhaps there was nothing that this man could not achieve, if he were willing to take the risk.
While she tried to find a way to escape, she continued to distract him by pointing out the fallacies in his false story. “You are only trying to find excuses for all the wrongdoings that you have committed over the years. Stop glorifying yourself. This part of your acting is totally pointless. You did not wait this long to destroy the Starry Crescent Land because you were merciful. The truth is, you could not find a way to make the invasion happen. Di Fuyi had been here long enough to keep out the people of Blue Fox planet or the Silver Fox planet; however, you want to call that damn planet. My return from the Upper Bound was delayed for two years, which opened up a window for you to get through the wizardry barrier, thus making the land vulnerable to an alien invasion. Am I right?”
Fan Qianshi was a little surprised by her analysis. “Xijiu, you really are the brightest,” he could not help but compliment her. In a way, he also confessed his sins, indirectly.
Gu Xijiu looked at him in disbelief, for his confession had come too soon. Perhaps, there were more secrets that she had yet to uncover.
“Were you the one who brought the Blue Fox family here many years ago?” She suddenly asked.
Fan Qianshi only gave her a smile in reply. He let her make her own guess. The hypocrite would not give out any significant information to her, so she had to find her own clues.
Gu Xijiu had once studied about the existence of the Blue Fox family. Their origin dated back 13,000 years ago. As far as she knew, Di Fuyi had been around about 10,200 years ago. The Blue Fox family was more primitive than him, in terms of their time spent in the Starry Crescent Land. They were here about 3,000 years ahead of Di Fuyi.
They must have come with advanced technology, but never properly utilized any of it. Hence, there must be a reason why they chose to blend in and cultivate with the locals.
The Blue Fox family seemed like a tool that Fan Qianshi had placed in the continent for future use.
