That child was only three years old. The ropes binding his body had inflicted great pain upon him. He had already collapsed before and had only woken up with a wail. That child was Gu Xietian's nephew. He turned toward Di Fuyi instinctively and asked, "Do you have any way to unite these ropes?"
Di Fuyi nodded slightly. Without saying a word and with a swift flash of the body, he flew toward the child and unbound the ropes. His actions were as swift as lightning. The ropesuncoiled loop by loop without triggering the time bombs through his adroit maneuvers.
Everyone who witnessed this was brought to their knees with utmost reverence! Countless gazes were fixated upon his hands. Watching himuncoiling the ropes was truly a spectacle to behold.
At the moment, the last loop of the ropes was uncoiled, the child fell safely from the pole to his mother's embrace.
The crowd cheered once again.
Everybody's attention was focused on Di Fuyi until they heard a shrill and ghastly shriek. Everyone turned toward the source of the sound and were frozen in astonishment!
Fairy Queen Li had pierced through Counterfeit Celestial Master Zuo's left chest with a bright snowy sword!!!
Di Fuyi squinted slightly.
Counterfeit Celestial Master Zuo's eyes were brimmed with incredulity. He stared at Fairy Queen Li, "You You"
"What about me? You're the fake Celestial Master Zuo! I've been so stupid to be deceived by you!" Fairy Queen Li's voice was marked with acrimony, her eyes with malice. She did not bother to wait for the counterfeit's reply and swept her sword.Counterfeit Celestial Master Zuo's mouth became agape, unable to make a sound. His body toppled over limply.
Di Fuyi raised his eyebrow. "Are you having an internecine fight?"
Fairy Queen Li's maidenly hands were still stained with the fake Celestial Master Zuo's blood. She sighed, "Celestial Master Zuo, I was merely deceived by him. I'm not his ally."
"Oh?" Di Fuyi approached her slowly. "But I've heard that a lot of the atrocities he committed was due to you, such as the use of black magic to manipulate the four messengers and the other heaven's gift disciples, and the shenanigans with the Wall of Sorrows"
He swept his gaze over the stalwarts who were bundled up. "Even the dark arts that these people practiced were because of your doing!"
Fairy Queen Li straightened her face. "You are wrong in that regard. I am a fairy queen that was sent down by the heavens and a lady of The Lord; I would only do good for this world and refrain from all kinds of sins. This was all because of the counterfeit and his deceitful acts. I am remorseful for having been used by him as well"
"Lies!" Mu Feng stood up. "The manipulation spell cast upon us was of your doing!"
"He's right! We've always been under your control and saw you masterminding us!" Mu Lei stood up as well.
Fairy Queen Li pursed her lips and sighed. "I must concede that I do know a particular type of fairy spell that is used not to manipulate people but increase their spiritual power instead. I had not expected that that counterfeit would develop his own brand of poison that merged with my spell and became a tool that put you all under control. I did not know about that before and had thought that all of you had stayed by his side willingly He had not told me about what he had done; I did not know anything at all"
With the full knowledge that that counterfeit is already dead, she shifted all her blame to him. "Of course, I did see him go overboard with some things that were unconscionable. But he told me that his ends justify the means, which was for the sake of the people, and that the death of a few lives was inevitable.
