Playing Off One Against The Other

As destiny unfolded, Fan Qianshi eventually became the Creation Deity.
Di Fuyi, who had been quiet for a while, commented, “You were not blinded by love, but instead, by your obsession. You wanted things that were not meant to be yours. Anyway, those are long in our past, so there is no point to even talk about it now. It seems like the demon is only a tool of yours. How did you know that Xijiu would end up here? If it was not for Di Hao, we would not have stepped foot into this desert at all.”
Fan Qianshi explained in an arrogant manner, “Di Hao was only an accident. The demon had reached full maturity so it was only a matter of time before she became fully destructive. Even without Di Hao, you would still come to evaluate the situation. Once you entered the desert, you would have no choice but to play along according to my rules.”
Di Fuyi laughed out loud at his ludicrousness. “Fan Qianshi, you got us. We acknowledge that. What about the demon? What are you going to do with her?”
“That is none of your concern,” Fan Qianshi dismissed him swiftly.
Meanwhile, Di Fuyi continued with heavy irony, “You are afraid to tell us, aren’t you? Your goal has been achieved, so she will be eliminated as well. In order for you to truly become the ruler of all six worlds, you need to build a lasting reputation by gaining public respect. The expansion of the demonic desert will go on indefinitely and become the biggest catastrophe that endangers the existing world. If you get rid of it, people will submit themselves to you for all eternity.”
Gu Xijiu finally got a grasp of it. “To kill two birds with one stone! What an impressive strategy!”
“Shut up! I will not do anything harmful to her!” Fan Qianshi responded with anger.
With a smirk, Di Fuyi continued to challenge him, “Is that so? Fan Qianshi, others may know nothing about the Soul Kneading Spell, but you cannot fool me. It is dark magic that will cause her to have a hidden but fatal defect, which, I believe, is a fact that you concealed from her. You, as the originator of the spell, know about its fatality better than anyone else. If you want to kill her, all you have to do it is to attack the defective spot of hers. Also, this dark water prison is a cruel practice that absorbs countless of resentful spirits, which is something against the laws of nature. With the use of such a spell, her Kung Fu will be largely increased, but at the risk of her own safety. At some point, she will not be able to hold against the overbearing grudges and collapse. She will die in a major explosion, even without any intervention from you. Luo Jiuchen used the same spell on a celestial being and turned her into a massive killing machine. She ended up being swallowed by the resentful spirits, without a trace of her soul left behind.”
Gu Xijiu looked surprised. “Are you talking about the feud between the Divine Lord and the Great Devil? I have heard about it. Luo Jiuchen wanted to replace the Divine Lord but he could not do the killing on his own. Secretly, he used the Divine Lord’s godsister as his subject and turned her into a weapon that threatened all beings. She thought that she was invincible but little did she know that she was merely a pawn in another’s man grand scheme of wickedness.”
With a frown, Fan Qianshi wanted to defend himself, but Di Fuyi added on, “Fan Qianshi, are you trying to deny it? Are you going to say that the incident was made-up? Are you going to deny the fact that you were the one who taught Luo Jiuchen dark magic? If you were bold enough to do it back then, you should man up and accept the responsibility right now.”
Fan Qianshi replied scornfully, “So what if it is true? To answer your question, yes, I was the one who taught him dark magic.”
