When Shen Li’s gaze touched upon Mo Fang’s eyes, she was stunned. For a short while, a myriad of sad emotions filled her heart. However, by the time she sorted out her emotions, a tapered tongue abruptly shot out from the center of the tongue that Mo Fang had hacked off; the tip of the tongue was like a sword. As a “ding” sounded, the sharp-edged tongue shattered the long sword that Mo Fang was using to block. When the blade broke, the tip of the tongue simultaneously penetrated Mo Fang’s heart. Then like a broken puppet, it threw him away. 

While behind him, his hot blood splattered all over Shen Li’s face. When Shen Li’s eyes went wide, the scene appeared to move in slow motion within her sight. As she looked at the figure that was thrown away, many scattered images flashed through her mind’s eyes. The scenes were of them, either fighting on the battlefield together, or returning from victory together, or toasting and laughing together after singing and dancing. She even remembered the time when she left the Demon Realm to escape from the arranged marriage. Back then, Mo Fang injured her severely and made her revert back to her true form, letting her escape to the Mortal Realm, so that people in the Demon Realm could not find her. 

Thinking about it now, at that time, Fu Sheng had hoped that she would marry into the Heaven Realm, so that they could execute their plans in the Ruins of Heavenly Poles. However, Mo Fang let her go. Therefore, he had already planned to disobey Fu Sheng. 

This person… Had harmed the Demon Realm, but towards Shen Li, he was never willing to harm her. 

This kind of person… 

When a howling whistle was heard coming from inside the Ruins of Heavenly Poles, the sharp-edged tongue swung forward, trying to wrap around Shen Li. Suddenly, Shen Li’s entire body emitted an aura of death. As her eyes turned red, the sharp-edged tongue had not even veered in front of Shen Li yet, she already threw her silver spear and the tip of the spear nailed that tongue into the ground. A startled scream was heard coming from a demon beast inside the gate. Shen Li was not in the mood to bother with it, instead she quickly rushed straight to Mo Fang’s side, seeing his entire body soaked in blood, drenching the ground black. As Shen Li crouched down, the light in her eyes dimmed. She stretched out her hand but was unsure whether to touch him or not. 

“Now, finally, there will no longer be any dilemmas.” He uttered hoarsely. His eyes stared at Shen Li calmy, while his expression stayed indifferent, as if there was no joy or sorrow, “Your Majesty, can you please forgive me…” 

Shen Li’s lips trembled: “I won’t forgive you. Get back up. After this matter, you still have to atone for your betrayal.” 

The corners of Mo Fang’s lips quirked up: “I’m afraid I can’t anymore.” 

Shen Li bluntly interrupted him: “Get up for this king! Even a calamity fire can’t burn you to your death, right?! With such minor injuries, don’t think that you can deceive this king to sympathize with you!” Despite having said this, Shen Li still clenched her fists in reluctance. She had seen too many deaths. She was all too familiar with this kind of death, the moments before dying. 

“I had a heart defect since I was a child, so I wouldn’t have been able to live for long. However, for an entire three hundred years, every day, Fu Sheng fed me his blood, so that I, like him, have the ability to come back to life, but… There is no power that will not be exhausted in this world. Fu Sheng’s power is about to be exhausted, and I… Won’t be able to continue to live anymore.” 

As Shen Li gnashed her teeth together, her throat tightened, silent and speechless. 

“In this life, I, Mo Fang, was born through hatred and lived because of other people’s plans. I couldn’t even ask for death. Only at this moment, did my wish come true…” The scarlet-redness in his eyes disappeared, making way for black eyes that were as clear and limpid as the sunniest depth in a pool. Using all the strength that he had left, his eyes reflected all the radiance that he possessed: “Your Majesty… I like it most… When you tie your hair up and it dances freely with the wind. It’s like a war flag that will never fall…” 

He said: “Don’t lose anymore…” 

Then the radiance disappeared and everything was a deathly stillness. 

Shen Li clenched her fists so hard that they almost trembled. The sharp-edged tongue that was nailed by Shen Li seemed to regain its strength and began to squirm again. Calmly, Shen Li stood up and her palms loosened. The red-tasseled silver spear disappeared. When it reappeared, it was held tightly in her grip. The wound on the tip of that tongue healed quickly, and it came towards Shen Li like a snake. 

“Why…” The fringes of hair on her forehead blocked her eyes, “Is he not your young master?!” With a wave of her silver spear, she slapped the tongue that was sweeping towards her back. Shen Li’s entire body exuded an aura of death, “Even your own people, you won’t even spare! It’s so crazy and ridiculous!” 

“Hehehehe.” A strange laughter came from the Ruins of Heavenly Poles, “My son is not filial. He actually delayed major affairs several times because of his personal affairs. So, naturally I should take care of his life.” 

After hearing this, Shen Li frowned deeply: “Liu Ming…” 

“I haven’t heard my own name in a long time. It does make one feel strange.” The cruel voice inside laughed strangely, “Come on, little lassie. Quickly enter the Ruins of Heavenly Poles. If you don’t hurry up, then the Divine Sovereign will catch up.”

When he finished speaking, a figure in white appeared about three steps away from Shen Li. As soon as Xing Zhi showed up, he did not even utter a single word, just stretched out his hand, grabbing at Shen Li. However, another black energy was even faster than him, it wrapped directly around Shen Li’s waist and dragged her into the Ruins of Heavenly Poles. 

Immediately, raging flames ignited all over Shen Li’s body. However, when she heard a shrill scream coming from the black energy, it sounded like Fu Sheng’s voice, the flames around Shen Li burned even more vigorously. The flames burned the black energy until there was nothing left. Still, she unexpectedly forgot to guard against that sharp-edged tongue that was leaping towards her back once more. It was also very afraid of the fire, but under the order, it directly wrapped Shen Li up, risking its skin being burnt and its flesh being cooked. It dragged her through the small crack in the Ruins of Heavenly Poles.

Xing Zhi was livid and a transparent blue sword made of ice suddenly appeared in his hand. However, in this place, the seal of the Ruins of Heavenly Poles was here. Xing Zhi did not dare to brandish his divine sword as he desired. His figure moved, wanting to catch up, but the miasma suddenly rose up and covered the ruins. In an instant, dozens of demon beasts escaped from it! They had Xing Zhi surrounded! Just within this moment of delay, Shen Li was already dragged into the ruins. 

Shen Li only felt darkness all around her, and the tongue that wrapped itself around her immediately pulled back. The flames on her body illuminated the surrounding environment. Countless demon beasts were wandering around in the darkness, surrounding her and watching her coldly. Shen Li looked back, wishing to escape from the Ruins of Heavenly Poles, but there was only darkness behind her and the gate was nowhere to be found.
