The stage had basically turned itself into a barbeque rack as the flames thoroughly burnt the statue. As it was no longer safe, the young palace master and her men quickly retreated. They had only stood around the stage before to keep people away from stealing the jade statue.
Anxiously, Feng Ruhuo kept her eyes on the jade statue with clenched fists. Was Gu Xijiu going to teleport to the stage and rescue the statue? If everything went as planned, she should be on the stage by now to seize the statue since the place was in chaos.
Gu Xijiu had the Invisibility Spell with her, so no one could see her even if she stood on the stage. Due to that, Feng Ruhuo could not even tell if she was already there because she would be invisible.
Did she hurt herself when she blew up Yun Yanli’s residence? The security should not have been very tight, right? Feng Ruhuo had contacted Gu Xijiu earlier and was reassured that she was safe. She even said that she had already entered the Star Formation and was getting ready to plant the explosive. As soon as the place was destroyed, she promised to rejoin the rescue mission at Zhengde Square.
It would not take long for her to remove the statue from the pillar. However, a few moments had passed, and Kun Xueyi and Yun Yanli had even been married in the process. Yet, Gu Xijiu was still nowhere to be seen. Furthermore, the statue was still well secured on the stage.
The flames were drawing closer to the center, and soon, the wooden pillar was up in flames. The pillar used to be burgundy in color. However, it soon turned lighter and lighter.
After the ceremony had concluded, Yun Yanli did not guide his bride into their bridal chamber. Instead, he grasped her by the waist and stood by the railing. They watched as the fire blazed merrily. Utterly delighted, Yun Yanli asked in a cheerful tone, “Xijiu, do you know the nature of this fire?”
Kun Xueyi answered firmly, “I do not.”
“It is known as the Fire of Fen Fanye. Everything will be indiscriminately destroyed under the blaze. Even one’s soul has no chance to escape from the fire. This is even more powerful than the Fire of Hong Lianye. Can you see the pillar in the middle? It is made of Dark Bodhi Wood, which is specialized in trapping one’s soul. Anyone who is tied at the pillar will be burnt into ashes, along with their souls. I do not know if the jade statue is actually Di Fuyi or not, but it does not matter. There is only one possible ending, which is that the statue will turn into a pile of ash.”
Kun Xueyi gasped in utter surprise. There was no time to waste. They could not watch as their master slowly died in the blaze. Someone had to retrieve the statue by force. He gave his finger a twitch to signal someone on the ground. Soon, a voice broke out from the tent, “Yun Yanli has sacrificed millions of innocent souls to support the Star Formations. The formations are not intended to help the people. Instead, it is used to absorb the essence of heaven and earth. The purest source of spiritual power will then be used to cleanse the resentment and grudge of the dead, so he can utilize the power to carry out nefarious activities for his own benefit. The Star Formation is the birthplace of the Blood Bats. Yun Yanli is the evil that we should all be aware of, the one who puts his people’s lives at stake! The jade statue is truly the celestial being who is here to save us all!” The person who made the announcement was one of Tian Xiuxiu’s puppets. No man was needed, so people could not tell where the voice was coming from.
