The Grand Finale (26)
Although the wizardry barrier was not strong enough to stop the frantic desert from expanding, it could, at the very least, stop the desert from growing in a particular direction. That way, they could buy the common people some time to flee.
As expected, the array formation was very physically demanding. Before Di Fuyi showed up, the team was like a spent force that was on the verge of giving up. They were already contemplating if they should give up on the lives of millions as they knew they could not hold it together much longer.
Among those who virtuously stayed behind were generals from the Monster Kingdom, and some were respected leaders from the Devil Kingdom. Even the Emperor Immortal and his men were still present. There were about 110 men in total.
To keep the array formation running, they had to take turns to support the barricade with their power. The clamoring crowd was actually the one who had just done their shift. All of them were equally exhausted, and some had already collapsed on the ground.
Di Fuyi and the group’s presence was a hopeful sight for them. They quickly asked about the desert’s condition from within, which was when Bai Ze, Yun Yanli, Kun Xueyi, the four messengers, and the guardians from the Shura World made their timely arrival.
Bai Ze felt tearful as soon as it saw Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi. They all got into a warm embrace.
“Young master!” “Young lady!” “Master!” “Xijiu!” “My Lord!” Both Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi were addressed in all kinds of titles.
As soon as the rest heard the titles, realization dawned on them suddenly. Little had they realized that the powerful man of purple grace and elegance was actually Prince Nianmo. Without a doubt, they bowed to him.
It was a widespread sight of respect and submission to Di Fuyi all at once. Meanwhile, Fan Qianshi stood and watched quietly as everything unfolded.
Di Fuyi had no time for socializing now. He waved his hand at the clamoring crowd as a sign to keep them quiet. He looked stern and fierce. The man’s powerful aura was intimidating, so they quickly stopped talking. “How can we stop it? Speak.” He directed his assertion of authority at Fan Qianshi.
Without wasting any time, Fan Qianshi told him everything he needed to know.
It was a solution that he had come up with long before his whole plan went haywire. He had planned to keep Di Fuyi in confinement before injuring the demon. He would then propose an ultimate solution for everyone to seal away the ferocious desert, which was meant to be a strategy for him to gain popularity as a savior for all. He would then take over the six worlds as their leader.
He thought that it was a useful solution to solve the problems of the desert once and for all. Even the resentful spirits could be freed from purgatory, not dusted.
This method was a little complex, but not too many people were needed. Only 200 excellent fighters were requested to take part. Nevertheless, not everyone was convinced by his proposal.
Kun Xueyi and the rest of them knew how cunning he was, so they refused to trust him and his plan, thinking that it was still part of a major plan of wickedness. In fact, they loathed him on sight, especially Yun Yanli, for he was reminded of his parents’ suffering. He would have attacked Fan Qianshi if they had not been in this unpleasant situation together.
As for those who did not know Fan Qianshi very well, they could not trust him completely either. He was not the man that they pictured him to be.
However, Di Fuyi seemed convinced. “Everyone, do as he says!” He instructed.
The crowd was visibly confused. At first, only Di Fuyi’s men chose to obey his instructions. The rest was not quite sure if they should submit to Di Fuyi’s authority, especially in these times of great danger. Some of them only respected him because of his powerful parents.
