Reality Became Unreal When The Unreal Became Reality (2)

The executioner spat out a mouthful of blood and was severely beaten. Hence, the punishment was halted.
The Monster King saw the whole scene unfold and decided that it was time for him to interrupt. His spiritual power was already at the level of a Great Deity, so every move of his was equipped with an enormous force. He launched his first strike at Fan Qianshi, which was a powerful attack. However, Fan Qianshi could easily take a step back to avoid getting hit.
Gu Xijiu observed his moves and could already make a few predictions. She could see that the Monster King would not hit Fan Qianshi since one tiny step was enough to avoid his first attack. But to her utter surprise, Fan Qianshi did not move at all. He disregarded the swift and fierce attack that was clearly aimed at him. Instead, he went straight to the pillar and cut away the chains that were holding ‘Wu Qianyan’ in place.
As a result, Fan Qianshi had to suffer a blow to his back in return for breaking one of the chains. After a loud snap, Fan Qianshi was hit and sent flying across the square. Being severely injured, he spat out a mouthful of blood while hanging on helplessly in the air.
The plot twist was alarming for Gu Xijiu. She could no longer stay still. With a swift leap, she teleported right in the air and held Fan Qianshi in place.
Fan Qianshi had suffered a powerful blow, so as soon as Gu Xijiu grabbed him in her hands, she had to take a swift turn and help him find his footing. Gracefully, they both landed on the scaffold.
“Master!” Fan Qianshi was happy to see her. Unfortunately, he spat out another mouthful of blood.
She could easily tell how badly he was hit. His complexion was pale and drawn, but fortunately, he remained conscious. “Master, I… I thought you did not want me anymore.”
“What an idiot!” Gu Xijiu steadied him on the platform before putting a pill right into his mouth. “I never asked you to leave. What makes you think that I gave up on you?”
Without any hesitation, Fan Qianshi swallowed the pill. Soon enough, he was no longer spitting out blood. His complexion, however, was still ghastly pale. “Master, I have done my best, but I still could not get Qianyan free.”
Gu Xijiu frowned at him. She knew immediately that her words had prompted him to risk his life in this rescue mission. All she wanted to see was his attitude and kindness towards a friend. She never wanted him to rush into a crude and impetuous decision that did more harm to him than good. As opposed to her expectation, she thought that he was smart enough to analyze the situation first before making any reckless moves.
Initially, Gu Xijiu had her identity disguised while moving among the crowd. However, as soon as she emerged in the air, she finally revealed her true self. Fortunately, her face was still concealed under a mask, so her ethereal beauty had yet to be uncovered.
She stood high up on the scaffold in her emerald dress, overlooking the crowd with an overwhelming sense of authority.
“Who are you?” The Monster King called out loud. He was still standing next to the pillar.
Gu Xijiu finally expressed her contempt, “You have pushed my disciple to the edge only to see me here today. Now that I am already here, why do you have to play dumb?”
“Then you must be the creator of the universe.”
“Just as you can see, I am.”
The crowd gasped in disbelief as soon as they heard the brief exchange. They had never seen the creator of the universe before, nor had they felt her strong presence. Her aura was so intimidating that one could hardly stand straight when she was present.
Some of them quickly fell to their knees to worship her. Soon enough, the restfollowed. Most of the people in the square were already kneeling and touching their heads on the ground as an act of respect.
Meanwhile, the Monster King kept his composure. “So you claim to be the creator of the universe, but do you have any proof?” He asked scornfully.
Gu Xijiu raised her eyebrow at him. Before she could say anything, Fan Qianshi was already defending her, “I can prove very well that she is my master!”
The Monster King had it all planned out. “You? I can assume that this is all but a trick, made up by you and Wu Qianyan to cover up the fact that you have killed the creator of the universe.”
He then gazed at Gu Xijiu intently. “It is easy to prove that you are the creator of the universe. You just need to defeat me in a battle! Otherwise, I will sentence you to death for impersonating the Divine Lord.”
