Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
“The entire idea of the invasion was from the marshal and I. Our men were only carrying out their duties under our command. You should put all the blame on me. Can I offer a counter proposal? I will tell you every secret that you want to know in exchange for their lives to be spared. As the chief offender, I shall stay behind for any sort of punishment that you have for me. How about that?”
Gu Xijiu certainly did not expect that he would be so loyal to his men. All of a sudden, the hatred that she had for him was reduced by a little. “Your second chance depends on your performance.”
With a nod, Guan Yaning’s eyes shone with delight. “Great. What can I do?”
“First, tell me everything that you know.”
Guan Yaning hesitated. If he told them every secret that he knew, there would be nothing left for him to bargain with.
Di Fuyi seemed to understand his concern. “You can choose to trust us or have death befall your men. In fact, there is still hope for you if you cooperate fully. I shall decide the fate of your men based on the significance of the information that you choose to share. If it is of utmost importance, I will spare a hundred lives. For every piece of general information, I will spare ten. If it is something trivial, only one life will be spared.”
At this point, there really was nothing Guan Yaning could do, except to tell the truth.Many secrets were unfolded. For example, the practice of Primary and Secondary Black Magic started about 10,000 years ago by the royal family of the Blue Fox planet. Back then,a celestial master showed up just when they started mastering the practice of the Primary and Secondary Black Magic. The celestial master was competent, so he was assigned to assist the crown prince in governing the country. He performed splendidly.
As an ambitious man with a plan, the crown prince was meant to succeed to the throne. However, the emperor went mad one day and thought that the crown prince was going to wrest the power from him, so the crown prince was suddenly convicted of treason and was sentenced to death.The crown prince had no choice but to leave the Blue Fox planet in search of somewhere safe. It was where the history of the Blue Fox family in Starry Crescent Land began.
The invaders used to be a group of happy thieves on the Blue Fox planet, wandering in the vast universe with no rules and restrictions. One day, the marshal and Guan Yaning both shared the same dream where God bestowed a treasure into their eager hands. They were told that in a faraway land named the Starry Crescent Land was a magical stone known as the Starry Stone. They could harvest its immense energy and even become immortals by wearing the stone.
They talked about the dream the next day and were surprised by their same encounter. Since then, both of them were motivated to get the stone. They did not really care about acquiring energy, but they wanted to live forever.
Therefore, they began looking for the Starry Crescent Land based on the hints that God had left behind in their dreams. Very soon, they were able to locate a specific source of energy that was released by the Blue Fox family from afar, thence the invasion happened.
Unfortunately, they did not manage to find the so-called Starry Stone. Instead, they were attracted by the otherworldly cultures of the Starry Crescent Land. They wanted to rule the land by right of conquest so that they could build their homes here.
Di Fuyi listened quietly with occasional but important questions, and Guan Yaning answered with everything that he knew. When the whole story was finally done, Di Fuyi rose and grasped Gu Xijiu by the wrist. “We should go and have a rest.”
Guan Yaning was still worried. “My Lords, I have told you everything that I know. How many lives will you spare?” He anxiously asked.
Di Fuyi answered without even looking back, “All of them.”
Guan Yaning gasped in disbelief. “All?”
