I Refuse To Be Taken Advantage Of Any Longer (2)

Gu Xijiu’s slow-improving condition had limited her power and abilities. There were many things that she simply could not do with such a limited level of spiritual power, so there was not much point of her returning home. This left her with no choice but to stay for another month.
For the past two months, Di Fuyi was always there. He took care of her and even went hunting for her so that she would not starve. Sometimes, he would guide her into a vortex so that she could absorb more spiritual energy. Since there were only two of them there, they would often talk to one another to pass the time.
It appeared that the man was genuinely there to meditate, too. When she went into a vortex to amass more spiritual energy, Di Fuyi would find himself another whirling mass of spiritual energy to meditate in as well. Nevertheless, he would always come out a little earlier than her, so she often found him standing in the distance while watching her with a crooked smile.
Sometimes, she would find him organizing their food supply or perusing some documents that required his examination. Other times, he would just be reading to accumulate knowledge.
Gu Xijiu knew that he was, in fact, a man of great ambitions. He managed to influence the development of two kingdoms in just a few years. The achievement alone was enough to prove his worth.
After capturing the respect of the people of the two kingdoms, Gu Xijiu wondered what his next target would be. With such progress, it would not be difficult for him to bring all six worlds under his control in less than a century.
While pondering the man’s next steps, a sudden realization struck her. Gu Xijiu’s existence served only to protect and keep watch over all six worlds. But if Di Fuyi could somehow bring all six worlds under his control and government, her immortalization and absence would not make any difference.
Deep down, she had a feeling that the man was born to be the ruler of all six worlds. It just seemed so right. The only flaw in this entire plan was his reluctance to be her disciple. Otherwise, she would be able to teach him everything that she could before her passing. In fact, Di Fuyi was a better candidate to become the next creator of the universe compared to Fan Qianshi.
“Di Fuyi, what do you think about my role here?” Gu Xijiu finally asked.
Di Fuyi was reading when she suddenly raised the question, so he looked at her in slight confusion and asked, “What about your role?”
“I am the creator of the universe, a divine being who is worshipped by all.”
“What about that?”
“Would you like to take over my role and become the ruler of the six worlds?”
“I would not like that at all,” Di Fuyi rejected without the slightest hesitation.
Triggered, Gu Xijiu continued, “You are only masking your true intentions, aren’t you? I can see that you are inclined to power. Otherwise, why would you spend so much effort and energy in reorganizing the Monster and Celestial Kingdoms? As you can already see, you have greater influence than the Monster King and the Emperor Immortal and are clearly ranked above their royal status. I think you are also planning to bring the remaining kingdoms under your control, aren’t you? Don’t get me wrong; I do not see this as something negative. In fact, I am happy that you were able to bring peace to two worlds. The great plan of yours requires a lot of planning and effort, with many great obstacles that lie ahead. Even your safety will be at stake. However, if you agree to become the creator of the universe, the whole plan will no longer be a problem.”
Di Fuyi answered with the slightest interest, “I find it more interesting if I achieve it solely with my own power. Whatever I want, I shall get. Therefore, I have no interest in taking your role. Nevertheless, he found her statement a little odd. “Wait, since you are a divine being, that would mean that you are immortal, aren’t you? Why should anyone need to succeed you?”
Gu Xijiu jokingly replied, “Even a divine being will eventually face her death or become dormant for a very long time as I have done for the past tens of thousands of years. If I had a successor to govern the world, it would not have become the mess that it is today.”
“So you are looking for a successor… Haven’t you already found one?”
Gu Xijiu did not answer.
“Do you still insist on taking me as your disciple? Are you going against your own words right now?”
Gu Xijiu decided to ignore his questions. From that moment onwards, she never brought it up again.
