Chapter 2318: Whose Child Is He?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Di Fuyi knew Gu Xijiu very well. When he was still a child, he managed to lure her in with his irresistible cuteness and made her do anything that he wanted. She sent him home and gave him little presents. Eventually, she even fell for him. The same tactic should not be repeated. He would never let anyone enjoy the same privilege that he had.
Di Fuyi started judging the baby, who was clearly adorable but could potentially be an embodiment of some wicked monster. He remembered that his own father had the strange habit of transforming into a baby every once in a while. Hence, the baby could merely be a transformation of someone strange.
“Are you being too petty against a baby who cannot even walk on his own?” The baby said innocently.
“Am I?” Di Fuyi acknowledged his remark with a smile.
All of a sudden, he lifted the baby and released him mid-air. Unsteadily, the baby fell onto the bed and almost hurt his head. He tried to turn his body around and gazed at Di Fuyi in disbelief. “What are you trying to do?” He questioned.
Was Di Fuyi trying to torture the baby as a means to vent his frustration about his lover running away with another man? Di Fuyi did not know what to say. Honestly, he thought that the baby was only pretending that he could not walk.
“How old are you?” Di Fuyi asked while crossing his arms.
The baby snuggled his head comfortably on the pillow and closed his eyes in response to his question. “It is hard to tell,” the baby answered nonchalantly.
“Try me; even if it is hard to tell.” Di Fuyi insisted.
The baby sighed. “One shall not talk about heavenly secrets.”
Di Fuyi was speechless. Frustrated, he clenched his fists while trying to calm himself down. He had many ways to make someone spill the truth, but none were friendly. His conscience told him not to torture a baby.
It was very rare for Di Fuyi to reveal his soft-hearted nature. After spending a year in the Devil Kingdom in which he encountered many ferocious battles, Di Fuyi’s heart was now hard as a rock. The pain made him grow. In the past year, he had encountered more challenges here in the Devil Kingdom than all the time that he had spent in heaven.
In order to get to where he was today, he had to go through a reign of terror. Many immoral tactics were used. Lives were lost. The more he pursued his power, the more relentless he became. He was cruel, and in order to win, he did anything necessary. Many were cruelly treated; however, he could not find the will to mistreat this baby.
The baby noticed his hesitation and seized the opportunity. He held his sleeve in a tight grip and looked at him with eyes full of sincerity as he reassured, “Don’t worry, I am nothing but an accidental discovery. I will do no harm to both of you. Instead, I wish you all the best.”
Di Fuyi looked at his tiny hand and was surprised. As he grew up, he did not like anyone to get too close to him, not even his closest servants. The only people whom he was not disgusted to get close with were his parents, Gu Xijiu and now, the baby.
Di Fuyi constantly covered his body with a wizardry barrier. No one was allowed to get too close, except for the ones that he trusted entirely. When he was severely injured and almost unconscious under the attacks of the wild wolves, it was only his wizardry barrier that the wolves were tearing away. Right before his wizardry barrier was torn apart, Yuanyuan’s sudden and unexpected arrival saved his life from the wolves.
Although he could barely recall the whole incident, he was sure that Yuanyuan was not able to get too close to him either, for he was still covered in his wizardry barrier when he woke up. For a while, he was curious about how Yuanyuan carried him all the way into the Devil Kingdom under such inconvenient circumstances. He asked her about it, but she only looked at him with a face full of grief.
