“Shen Li, do you still remember what I told you before that when the Ruins of Heavenly Poles collapses, all the demon beasts will be buried within it.” Xing Zhi embraced Shen Li gently within his arms and said softly, “Simply put, when I established the Ruins of Heavenly Poles, I could only support it with the Powers of the Five Elements, except for the Seal of Fire, which I borrowed the power from your father, the other four were all based on the powers of heaven and earth within the Demon Realm.” 

His ordinary words inadvertently made Shen Li recall some sweet memories that resided within her heart; outside the Ruins of Heavenly Poles, the moon on the mountain and the water in the lake. At that time, one of them was suspicious, while the other even carried murderous intentions. However, regardless of what was hidden in their hearts at that time, when Shen Li recalled the memories now, she only remembered that moment when the moonlight broke through the miasma. Compared to anywhere else, it was the most beautiful scene ever. 

“When I reconstructed the seal, you were with me. I think you understand it clearly, too. When the time comes, if the Ruins of Heavenly Poles are destroyed, then the Demon Realm cannot be saved either.” 

Shen Li nodded: “Mhm, the tree on the mountain is the Seal of Wood, the water in the spring is the Seal of Water, the stone slab under the training platform of the barracks is the Seal of Earth, and the iron chains around the the Ruins of Heavenly Poles is the Seal of Metal. The three outside happen to form the shape of a triangle, which surrounds the ruins, while the metal hangs on the ruins, and the fire resides within the ruins, this ought to be a foolproof magic array. However…” 

“Mhm, but the other party has found a substitute for these five elements.” When Xing Zhi clasped Shen Li’s shoulders, the ever-present smile on his face subsided and he said firmly, “Shen Li, for what’s coming next, I need you to listen carefully, because it is up to you to decide.” 

As soon as Shen Li’s face became solemn, she listened to Xing Zhi speak: “You and the other four substitutes have already replaced the original seal. This Powers of the Five Elements is far less powerful than the original Powers of the Five Elements that was born from heaven and earth, so this seal can only support the Ruins of Heavenly Poles, and cannot imprison the demon beasts within it. Therefore, right now the gate of the ruins is wide open. Although I have forcibly seal the exit with an enchantment barrier to prevent them from escaping, this is not a long-term solution. There’s only one way to solve the problem with the demon beasts.” 

Shen Li gazed at Xing Zhi: “What you’re saying is to bury the demon beasts together with the Ruins of Heavenly Poles?” 

Xing Zhi nodded: “Right now, it’s fortunate that the four seals that connect the Ruins of Heavenly Poles with the Demon Realm have all been replaced. If the ruins collapse, then it will not affect the Demon Realm. Right at this moment, the only one who will be affected…” He stretched out his fingertips and stroked Shen Li’s cheek, “Is just you.” 

Shen Li was silent for a long time, but then she smiled: “With these types of choices, you already know how I’m going to choose.” 

Xing Zhi’s heart tightened and he withdrew his fingers: “Yes, I know.” 

“Then why hesitate.” Shen Li said, “Destroy the Ruins of Heavenly Poles.” 

For a long time, Xing Zhi gazed at Shen Li quietly. In the end, he helplessly released a bitter smile: “In any case, it’s your own life. At this moment, you should at least hesitate before agreeing…” However, if she hesitated, then she would not be Shen Li. When making decisions, this woman was always too straightforward. 

Shen Li pursed her lips, but in the end, she just blurted out the word “sorry.”  Seeing Xing Zhi looking at her, Shen Li said, “The life you saved with all your might is going to be lost again. This time… Don’t go and seal the Eastern Sea anymore. I was still curious about why the Dragon King was so eager to give you gifts when we were in the Eastern Sea… Look at how you scared them…” 

“Heh.” Xing Zhi could not help but laughingly shake his head. After controlling his laugh, he patted Shen Li’s head and said as if he was making a promise, “Not this time and no one will be scared.” He said, “I will accompany you. I will be with you until the very end.” 

Shen Li stared at him in disbelief. 

As if talking to himself, Xing Zhi said: “To destroy the Ruins of Heavenly Poles, it will consume an enormous amount of divine power, and now my divine power is gradually fading away. It will be difficult to cast a spell to destroy the ruins while supporting the enchantment barrier outside. Fortunately, those four seals outside the ruins were moved, so I will take them to the Outer Bounds of Heaven and connect them with it. Then I will use the powers of the Outer Bounds of Heaven to imprison the demon beasts. Finally, I will destroy the Ruins of Heavenly Poles and take the Outer Bounds of Heaven with it. Henceforth, there will be no more troubles in the Nine Heavens. Killing two birds with one stone.” 

When that time came, the Divine Sovereign Xing Zhi would die, and the Outer Bounds of Heaven and the Ruins of Heavenly Poles would both disappear together, leaving the Heaven Realm undamaged and the Demon Realm unharmed.  

He already… Planned it so thoroughly… 

“Actually.. You can complete these things outside the Ruins of Heavenly Poles, why are you…” 

Xing Zhi smiled lightly. Even though the injury made his face pale, his eyes carried a warmth that was never seen before: “Because I can’t imagine a world without you anymore, Shen Li. To terminate my life with you is the most benevolent ending that I can think of.” 

Immediately, Shen Li felt a pain in her heart. She wanted to reach out and hug the person in front of her. Perhaps he had always lived a more pessimistic life than anyone else, so even his wish was so humble that her heart could not stop aching. 

“I’m only afraid that in the end, I won’t be able to even terminate…” Without waiting for him to finish speaking, Shen Li abruptly shot upwards and bit his lips. Then as she carefully caressed his lips, she softly said, “Not going to happen. I will plague you, just like that lifetime when you were a human, I will stay by your side for all time.” 

Xing Zhi released a sigh, grabbed Shen Li’s waist with one hand, and pressed the back of her head with the other, making the kiss deeper. Then when he released her to gasp for air, he said with a sigh: “During that time… All you wanted to do was run away.” 

Leaving each other’s lips, Xing Zhi pressed his forehead against Shen Li’s forehead and quietly said: “It will be a little dark in here, so don’t be afraid. I will come back to accompany you when I have taken care of those four seals properly.” 

“Mhm.”

  1. I’ve been away (or err not checking this website, anyhow) for a bit and we’re already at the end! And while this is supposed to be a happy ending, the author always knows how to wring those tears out in the penultimate moments.

    Thanks for your hard work!
