Chapter 1200: Do You Miss Me (2)
Little did he know…
Xing Lou had just entered his room when someone sneaked in from the back window.
Before he had any time to react, Xing Lou was enveloped in a bear hug from the back.
Slightly startled by the warmth radiating from his back, a gentle smile played upon his lips.
“You brat, did you miss me?” Ji Fengyan pressed her little face into Xing Lou’s back as she asked fiercely.
Xing Lou remained silent but pulled her to his front. With warm eyes, he cast a lingering gaze over her face before giving her a light kiss on the lips.
“You are taking too big a risk.”
Ji Fengyan grinned at Xing Lou. “Is it risky? When have I done anything that wasn’t a risk?”
Xing Lou stared wordlessly at Ji Fengyan. He couldn’t help feeling frustrated. After arriving at the Divine Temple, he had suddenly received news that he was to go to the Kingdom of Sa Er. He didn’t know the reason behind the trip, until he heard the name Ji Fengyan while on the way to Sa Er…
That girl was stirring things up again.
“I had thought it strange when I heard that Xing Hun found a way to settle the stargazing pagodas. Looking at you now, I think I know why he suddenly got the funds to build those pagodas.”
In terms of finances, even adding up ten of Sa Er’s national reserves would not be as much as what Ji Fengyan had.
Ji Fengyan shrugged. “Even without me, the Divine Temple would find some way to resolve the issue. However, I am rather curious about this stargazing pagoda. Why is the Divine Temple so desperate to build them?”
Xing Lou’s eyes darkened. He sat down on a chair with Ji Fengyan still in his embrace.
“The stargazing pagodas will form a large-scale trigram. When the Heavenly Fiend Clan poisoned the ancient dragons, they had also built something like that at the dragons’ gathering place. This thing can have a major effect on all living creatures, quietly sucking their life-force without them knowing. Now, Xing Hun wants to construct the stargazing pagodas to absorb the life-force of human beings. However, the effect of this trigram is extremely harmful—even the powerful ancient dragons suffered terribly from it—if the humans and demons endured the same kind of effect, they would instantly perish.”
“What does the Heavenly Fiend Clan want? They are already powerful enough. Humans and demons are no threat to them at all.” Ji Fengyan frowned. Although she already knew of the Heavenly Fiend Clan’s cruel plan, Xing Lou’s explanation still shocked her.
“They want to create a new world.” Xing Lou narrowed his eyes.
“Create a new world?”
“That’s right. They want to become the new gods. To achieve the same powers held by gods, they must annihilate most of the living creatures created by the previous gods. To erase all traces of them. After that, the essence left behind by the former gods would vanish from this world. The Heavenly Fiend Clan can then absorb the power of the world and become the new gods.”
Ji Fengyan was stupefied. The Heavenly Fiend Clan was maniacal.
However…
Ji Fengyan couldn’t help looking at Xing Lou.
At the end of the day, Xing Lou was also part of the Heavenly Fiend Clan. Yet, he held a high sense of animosity towards the Divine Temple’s actions.
