Gu Xijiu had not paid much attention to the messenger while she was stuck in the clouds but this time was different. She had to know. The messenger was silent at first but finally spoke. “You shouldn’t be dead…”
“I am dead because of my fight with the Omen, right? If I didn’t use this method, I couldn’t kill him! I killed him for the good sake of people. It cannot be a sin, right?”
The messenger sighed. “In fact, you did not have to kill him. Huang Tu could have settled him.”
Gu Xijiu was noticeably disappointed. “So you people already decided who should settle the Omen? Could the Omen only be destroyed by The Lord? Is it a violation against the heavens for anyone else to do so?”
“That is not the case… but with the Omen’s ability, only The Lord could have defeated him.”
“But I am the one who killed him! Is he not dead yet?”
“He is dead! But you also sacrificed your life…” The voice grew softer.
Gu Xijiu was angry. Was it a mistake for her to sacrifice her life to save the world?
“I think it is worthy to use my little life to change the life of everyone in the world.”
“No, it was not worth the trouble… Your life is worth more than him!”
Gu Xijiu was speechless.
Was her life more valuable than the Omen? How could that be the case!? She was just an ordinary celestial master. She was not even a heaven’s gift disciple Did she have a hidden identity?
Suddenly, Gu Xijiu seemed to have a minor heart attack. She remembered the two brightest stars that she saw when she accompanied Di Fuyi in his house before. It seemed to have a link to her… She said that she would look out for the world with him, and not be a bird that was protected under his wings. Was her identity really comparable with Di Fuyi’s?
“Why do you say this?” She wanted the truth.
This time, the messenger was silent for a long time…
“When you get out after 40 or 50 years, you will understand.”
40 or 50 years?! She could not wait that long! She seemed to think of something. She tried to ask indirectly, “Is it true that the world cannot have two suns, and that the people cannot have two Lords?”
The messenger seemed stunned. “This” Before she waited for the voice to speak, Gu Xijiu continued, “Since you are a messenger of Heavenly Order, you should not lie, right?”
“This…” The messenger could not continue, and it did not respond to her. However, Gu Xijiu did not need an answer. Her heart sank. Silence at this time was almost equivalent to acknowledgment
“Am I the new Lord in future?” Her voice sounded shaky! It was definitely not something she looked forward to doing.
How could she guess it so quickly? The messenger did not even tell her anything! Anyway, it continued to remain silent.
“Will I replace him? Replace The Lord, Huang Tu?” The questions asked by Gu Xijiu were getting sharper, and it was close to the core of the problem.
Some key points that she could not think of seemed to be resolved. However, this was not something she personally wanted! She felt like she was being engulfed by a black hole. The truth that she managed to unravel was too cruel.
She actually wanted to hear the voice to deny it. She would even laugh when it did. Sadly, no such thing happened. Instead, Mu Feng’s words floated in her heart. He was running out of time
