Reality Became Unreal When The Unreal Became Reality

When Gu Xijiu finally took Wu Qianyan out of the prison in the Monster Kingdom, she quickly settled her down in a guest inn where she could rest. Gu Xijiu tried to contact Fan Qianshi using her sensing ability to get him to stay with Wu Qianyan and be her caretaker. Still, the boy never answered or returned her call.
Her sensing ability was supposed to be a form of telepathic communication. Only her disciple and her servant were equipped with the ability to receive her call. She could easily reach out to them as long as they stayed within a radius of a few hundred miles.
Therefore, Gu Xijiu’s failure to communicate with Fan Qianshi could only mean two things – he was either hundreds of miles away or was trapped in some sort of forbidden land.
Although Wu Qianyan had suffered severe injuries, these wounds could be easily taken care of by Gu Xijiu. Very quickly, she wrapped up Wu Qianyan’s open wounds with dressings to help her heal better. Some pills were also administered to help with her internal injuries. In merely an hour, Wu Qianyan was already halfway through her recovery. She could already leave the bed and take care of herself.
Relieved, Gu Xijiu put a wizardry barrier at the door before leaving Wu Qianyan alone in the room. When everything was done and secured, she left.
Her original plan was to wait for the dismemberment to come to an end before revealing the truth before the Monster King’s eyes. She wanted to humiliate him publicly, but plans changed when Fan Qianshi showed up so suddenly in an unplanned rush.
He did not even have the strength to protect himself against the Monster King’s eight best soldiers in his current state. Hence, the way he emerged onto the scaffold was an act of digging his own grave.
“What a little rebel,” Gu Xijiu thought.
Gu Xijiu clenched her fists and looked at Fan Qianshi in frustration. He was ruining her plan. The boy went straight for the pillar and shouted, “Hey, bastard! Let go of Qianyan!”
The Monster King was delighted to see him. With the disciple’s presence, he now had more reasons to force the creator of the universe to show up. But first, he needed to put on a show. “Fan Qianshi, I have been looking for you. Your time is up. Where is your master? Were you the one responsible for her death? Soldiers! Take him down!” The Monster King exclaimed in a fury.
All his soldiers rushed ahead and were ready to fight. In an instant, the scaffold became a warzone. The executioner was not sure if he should continue his work, so he looked at the Monster King for confirmation.
The Monster King gestured to his man and firmly said, “Don’t stop. Keep going.”
Therefore, the executioner continued to slice ‘Wu Qianyan’ into thin pieces of meat.
The Monster Princess’s speech was no longer muted, but without her tongue, she could only screech in agony, emitting wails like a lost soul. Her voice was piercing, loud enough to make everyone’s flesh creep.
She screamed on, as her body trembled with each slice. The misery was surely worse than death. Alas, she finally realized how painful it actually was to be dismembered,
On the other hand, Gu Xijiu was still watching the fight. She had her spells ready underneath her sleeves, so if anything went wrong, she could assist Fan Qianshi as soon as possible.
After a while, she found herself astonished by his adequacy. Fan Qianshi’s kung fu had increased by twofold. He was able to move unhindered among the armed men. Also, he had never once put himself in an inferior position. The moves that he was using were taught to him by Gu Xijiu, but the source of spiritual power that he was channeling was obtained from something else. She could obviously sense a hint of violence and rage within him.
As soon as he emerged on the scaffold, two soldiers were already injured.
She wanted to communicate with him via her sensing ability and tell her that the girl on the pillar was an imposter, so there was no point for him to fight anymore. However, seeing his ability made her change her mind.
Fan Qianshi’s attacks were a little odd. Since he was doing great on his own, she decided not to interrupt. With a swift leap, Fan Qianshi sent the guard across the air. After a few twists and turns, he found his way up to the pillar and launched a stinging attack at the executioner.
