Little Pink could not believe what he had just said.
It finally had a thorough understanding of its own history, which also explained why it was always unnoticeably drawn to Gu Xijiu. It always hoped that someday it would become her majestic pet. Little did it know that it had always been Gu Xijiu’s. It was the demon’s interception that cut their connection off.
It was eager to look for Gu Xijiu but was concerned for Di Hao as well. “What about you?”
Di Hao did not answer its question. He only waved at it and said, “Just go. Remember, both of them have to work together in order to destroy the violent desert, once and for all.”
In a second, Little Pink’s vision suddenly became blur and cloudy. Apparently, the illusion of the Forbidden Land of God began to fall apart. From afar, Little Pink caught a glimpse of Di Hao. His body turned translucent and slowly faded to dust, just like everything else around him.
Tearfully, it cried out loud, “Young master!”
“Hey! We are falling again! Going down!” The mussel called out. After a loud bang, it found itself back on the sand. The fall was so great that its shells almost broke apart.
The mussel, along with Lu Wu, Long Siye, and Hua Yan, were waiting outside of the grand hall when Fan Qianshi suddenly ran out with his face looking aghast with terror. He ran towards the door, frantically.
Worried, the mussel thought that he was running away, so it volunteered to stop him. “Where do you think you are going?”
“Get off!” Fan Qianshi swiftly swept the mussel out of his way.
The mussel had no resistance against his strength, so it rolled and tumbled its way to the side.
Triggered by his arrogance, Lu Wu was ready to fight him.
“Let him go!” A voice called out.
It was Di Fuyi who stopped Lu Wu. While Lu Wu was still dumbstruck, Fan Qianshi already disappeared.
Hua Yan was dumbfounded, too, at how things changed so abruptly. She quickly followed her master, but Fan Qianshi furiously rejected her. “Why are you still behind me? Go away! Wu Wuyan, you no longer serve me. You are free to go! You have nothing to do with me anymore. Go and find someone else!”
He tossed her an odd-looking piece of jade and walked away without looking back.
Bewildered, she watched helplessly as he walked away and then picked up the jade and held it tightly in her hand.
Long Siye walked to her side. “What is this?”
“The curse of my fate,” Hua Yan murmured.
Long Siye knew exactly what it was about.
Whoever holds the Fate Curse shall practice full power on one’s life course. Fan Qianshi used to keep a curse on Hua Yan’s life, so she had to obey his every instruction. If she ever misbehaved, he could always perform a small trick on the jade that would make her suffer in agony.
Giving the Fate Curse back to her means that she was free for good. She could finally go her own way and be with anyone she wanted.
The woman was smart, beautiful, and powerful. Although she seemed cold and unapproachable, none of her unfriendliness managed to keep her admirers away. Many from the Celestial Kingdom had their hearts surrendered to her.
As Long Siye’s master, she was treated with great respect. She had her freedom at last, but sadness filled her heart. She stood there, clutching the jade, feeling utterly lost.
“Let’s go,” Long Siye said, freeing her from her contemplation.
Oddly enough, she seemed helpless. “Where shall we go?”
“They are going out now. Let’s go with them.”
Hua Yan finally noticed that everyone was leaving already. She put her emotions aside and joined them.
Before they even made it out through the gate, the whole place was already crumbling down. The stars, the walkway, the grand hall, and the shrine, were all shaking aggressively. Like a paper house in the wind, the whole place was falling apart.
