Zhu Duqing sighed softly. “Are you thinking of rescuing Di Fuyi? Fine, I’ll help you!”
After hearing that, Gu Xijiu seemed to have blacked out momentarily. When she regained consciousness, she found herself inside a tent at the crowded Zhengde Square. She tried to speak but found that her voice was as soft as the sound of insects. This was in stark contrast to the extremely noisy surrounding.
Zhu Duqing had sealed her acupoint and also disguised both of them. They now looked like an ordinary couple. Later, they headed out, and Gu Xijiu managed to see everything that happened on the two towers.
She saw that Yun Yanli and Kun Xueyi had completed their wedding rituals. She also saw the jade statue burning fiercely on the other side of the square.
“Xijiu, is that Kun Xueyi who was just married to Yun Yanli? I cannot believe that he does not even know it is not you. I thought he loved you so badly. Apparently, he is dumb!”
“Xijiu, do you know the nature of the fire? It is the Fire of Fen Fanye.” Zhu Duqing explained the power of the flame and concluded with a soft tone, “I am the one who taught Yun Yanli this spell. I gave him the blood he needed, the five-colored stones, and even the necessary wood. Sigh, I have put in so much effort to make his dream come true. Disappointedly, he trapped me in a prison and wanted to kill me.”
“Zhu Duqing, why are you doing all this?” Hopelessly, Gu Xijiu asked as she gritted her teeth.
“For him.” Zhu Duqing pointed at the jade statue on the tower. He then sighed. “Today is the day!”
“What has happened between the two of you?”
“You would not know the enmity between us. You do not have to know. You just need to know that only one of us can survive!”
“Are you a member of the Yun family?” That was the only clue Gu Xijiu had.
“The Yun family is nothing. I have nothing to do with them.” Zhu Duqing drew closer to Gu Xijiu. He was so close that his lips almost touched her ear. “They are too low a class of people even to polish my shoes!”
Gu Xijiu finally understood that Zhu Duqing was the main culprit behind the chaos in the Shura World. He finally revealed himself. Unfortunately, it was in such an intricate situation! Gu Xijiu could only watch helplessly as the flames engulfed the jade statue. She had no way to escape.
Nonetheless, she did notice that Kun Xueyi had signaled his peers to take action. The beacon was lighted as a sign for the soldiers outside the city wall to send in the ferocious beasts. Besides that, she also heard Tian Xiuxiu use the puppets to urge the crowds to foil Yun Yanli’s plan.
The place was undoubtedly in a state of chaos. Zhu Duqing sighed as he shook his head. “They are all dumb*sses! It is impossible to put out the fire; it will burn everything into ashes! They are merely killing themselves. Tsk tsk. What a tragedy.”
Gu Xijiu was generally a calm person. However, she was lost now! Her eyes started to turn red! She had no idea what she could do, and it seemed that she could not save him! In fact, she had even gotten his loyal subordinates into trouble.
In a last attempt to save her friends, she struggled out of Zhu Duqing’s embrace and shouted with all of her energy, “No! Stop!”
“Please stop! Please!”
“Stop running! It’s a trap! Come back, please!”
Her voice was extremely soft, even though she had consumed every bit of her energy. No one heard her! The only thing she could do was to watch them run into the burning flame.
“Crack!!!” Suddenly, a bolt of lightning struck the burning tower!
The thunder was loud enough to impair everyone’s ears! Meanwhile, the people had rushed into the burning tower has been pushed back by a powerful force that felt as though they had crashed into a wizardry barrier.
Everyone was shocked. What was happening?!
“Look!” Someone shouted as he pointed at the sky.
The crowd quickly lifted their heads and immediately took a deep breath! Gosh! What was that?! No one had realized that plenty of light purple clouds had completely covered the sky. It seemed that a terrifying storm was approaching.
Those with low spiritual power were trembling, and some even slumped to the ground. It was a catastrophe! Someone in the crowd would be experiencing a catastrophe! However, the strange thing was that the ominous clouds were usually red or black; no one has seen purple ones. These clouds seemed to glow in seven-colors.
Certainly, none of the people here had seen it before! Those who had were wondering who the challenge was for.
“The jade! It is a holy statue!” Someone shouted.
“Gosh! It is a holy statue! It is going through the catastrophe!”
Swiftly, another bolt of lightning struck the tower, and the burning platform collapsed! Then, a white shadow was engulfed by the lightning and slowly rose up to the sky.
The crowd watched in awe as the jade statue began to float in midair as it glowed. At the same time, numerous bolts of lightning struck the jade statue. Everyone watched silently as the statue glowed in seven colors.
Gu Xijiu also held her breath as she fixed her eyes on the jade statue and watched it experience 49 strikes of lightning. All of a sudden, the jade statue slowly opened its eyes and got up. The jade statue was alive! It seemed to have turned into a man with a white robe right in front of a thousand pairs of eyes.
The silky, snowy-white robe with embroidery designs was fluttering in the clouds. Meanwhile, the man’s hair was like a waterfall flowing at his back. Everyone was amazed as he stood on a cloud with seven-colored glows.
He looked to the ground as though he was a holy lord. Furthermore, his strong aura made the people around him kneel to worship him. Even Yun Yanli’s soldiers had kneeled.
Gu Xijiu almost stopped breathing because of what she had seen. She was certain that the man was Di Fuyi. However, his aura was so much stronger than she remembered. Suddenly, she felt a crack in her head as a plethora of memories rushed into her mind.
