Di Fuyi’s Requirement (3)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
“That is correct.” Di Fuyi then took Gu Xijiu away into another cabin where they could have a rest. He was exhausted after such an eventful day. Not to mention that he had been traveling for some time to get here. Also, he needed a private space to connect all of the hints and dots.
Frozen, Guan Yaning stood silently, unable to believe what he had just heard. “Hey, my young Lord, does your father always mean what he says?” He asked Di Hao for reassurance.
“Certainly, his word is as good as a bond.” The positive statement was what Guan Yaning needed.
He heaved a long sigh of relief before starting to question the validity of what he heard again. He then circled the room a few times before tripping himself up.
“Have you lost your mind? I am dizzy just looking at you.”
Guan Yaning sighed. “All right, I will stop circling the room. We should head back now. Right now. My young Lord, would you like to rest as well? A child should not stay up too late.”
Di Hao shook his finger in disapproval. “I am not tired, so I will stay here and enjoy the view. By the way, call me Mr. Hao and stop addressing me as a young Lord.”
Guan Yaning dared not argue with him.
The view of the night sky was absolutely breathtaking in space. Guan Yaning could not help but share with Di Hao everything about the constellations while slowly steered across the void.
“Stop talking and let me have a moment of silence.” Di Hao did not appreciate the sharing session very much.
Understandably, Guan Yaning stopped talking. He would peek at Di Hao every once in a while. The boy was still sitting by the window and gazing intensely at the stars. He seemed to be deeply absorbed in his own thoughts. Sometimes, the boy could be seen using his fingers underneath the sleeves to make some predictions.
The little boy did not seem so little anymore. In fact, he glowed with a vibrant state of power and authority. He was only a child, but his powerful aura was not to be underestimated. He was just like a god who was overseeing the world.
Guan Yaning was intimidated by the boy, but Di Hao did not care about Guan Yaning at all and continued to observe the stars. He frowned a little.
Many things had changed, but the ending still remained the same. His memories were still the same. He could not hold back a sigh of disappointment.His mission was not accomplished yet. Perhaps, he still had a long way to go.
His time-traveling experience was an accident, but he intended to make it count.
The distance did not matter at first when they were in pursuit of the man. However, the return journey finally made Guan Yaning realize how far they had actually gone.Even with such great speed, they would still need at least half a day to get back to Starry Crescent Land.When the last lapse was complete, he finally saw Starry Crescent Land from a distance.
Relieved, he then decided to speed up but was halted by a sudden flash of blue light before his eyes. Something was about to collide with the ship.
Guan Yaning was shocked by the sudden obstruction. By the time he realized it, the object was already very close.He quickly steered the ship away with a sharp turn and just managed to avoid the blue light.
Stunned, Guan Yaning quickly wanted to check what he had narrowly missed. He was even more shocked when he found out that it was actually a bird.
The giant bird was massive enough to blot out the sky and the sun just by extending its wings. As the bird had stopped very close to the ship, Guan Yaning was only able to see its head, which was already as huge as a small hill. Frankly, its eye alone was already the size of an elephant. The bird was also looking at him intensely.
He could not help but be astonished. What kind of bird could that be? Even without its gigantic beak, the bird could still easily crush the ship just by blinking. Guan Yaning wanted to steer the ship away from the potential danger, but he froze in a blind panic.
All of a sudden, Di Hao quickly stood up and waved at the bird. “Hey! What took you so long?”
