“Of course she was replaced by me”, Qi Yue said and smiled as if it was something insignificant. “The first thing that I needed to do in order to carry out the Mystic Moon Plan and fulfil my goals was to control the Lunar Scourge. This should have been quite difficult, but luckily, when I found the Lunar Scourge, there was an item soul that had been in there for over 10,000 years. As such, I used my godly soul’s special power of ‘control’ to split a part of my soul into the Lunar Scourge, and I took all of her memories before killing her, replacing her as the Lunar Scourge’s item soul. Oh… that item soul’s name was indeed Ye Yue, and her father was indeed the Night Emperor Ye Wu Ya. Come to think of it, little master should thank Ye Yue. Even though she was killed by me, everything I know about the Forgotten Continent comes from her memories. Without her memories, little master’s journey wouldn’t have been so smooth.”

An explosion seemed to go off within Ling Chen’s mind, and he furiously roared, “You… You killed Ye Yue?! She only had her soul left and was sealed away for so many years, an incredibly pitiful existence. Since you were able to replace her, you must have had ways to help her escape from the Lunar Scourge as opposed to killing her!”

“Oh… you’re right, I could have done that. However, if I let her go, that might have caused problems for me in future, so it was much simpler to just kill her. Oh, and that boring 3-year arrangement: that was just an excuse to avoid trouble. If you meet the Night Emperor again, you can tell him that his daughter died long ago, and it’s fine if you tell him that I was the murderer,” Qi Yue said uncaringly.

“You!!” Ling Chen’s eyes widened, staring at Qi Yue’s remorseless and guiltless smile. He felt a chill within his heart – was this really the Qi Yue that he had known for more than 1 year?

“No! Impossible… You’re not such a cruel person, impossible…” Ling Chen stared at Qi Yue and slowly shook his head. He was unwilling to believe that Qi Yue was such a cruel person who purely used and toyed with him. They had experienced much together, and they had spent almost every day together during that period of time. Even if he didn’t know her fully, he understood her quite well. Even though Qi Yue was quite mysterious and devious, from everything she had done and said… she shouldn’t be this sort of person! Ling Chen had experienced much in his lifetime, and he was very rarely wrong about someone, making him quite confident in his judgment of people.

“If you were purely using and lying to me, why did you… that night…”

“That night? Oh! You meant that incident.” Qi Yue immediately understood what Ling Chen was talking about, and she smiled enchantingly. “Are you asking why I seduced you into having sex with me that night if I’ve been lying to you and using you? And you even found out that I was a virgin.”

Ling Chen: “……”

“Hahahaha, poor little Ling Tian. Now I feel bad about telling you the truth.” Qi Yue’s eyes narrowed into 2 slits as she smiled. “The next day after that night, did you feel quite dizzy and weak? Also, did you feel as if something had happened, but you couldn’t remember the details?”

“… What are you trying to say?” Ling Chen deeply frowned because that was indeed how he had felt the next day. In fact, he didn’t even remember how he had ended up on his bed.

“It’s because what happened the previous night was fake.” Qi Yue calmly smiled. “Don’t you remember that my godly soul’s main power is ‘control’? I can control your memories within a certain period of time. Nothing happened that night; rather, I left some hazy memories in your mind. How could I let a human have my beautiful body?

“When you walked into the bathroom that night, you already fell unconscious. Nothing you remembered afterwards really happened. Rather, I spent some time leaving a mark called ‘Enchanting Moon’ on your body. That mark would have made you under my control forever. However, the next day, the mark mysteriously vanished, giving me a big fright. Only today did I realise that it was Sha Sha who had gotten rid of it. Moreover, she only got rid of the mark and not the ‘side effects’. However, that doesn’t matter to me. There were also many times when I wanted to control you when your mind and spirit were in chaos, but I was always disrupted by a mysterious power. Evidently, that was also done by the Godchild… if it wasn’t for the Godchild, you’d be a skeleton who is completely obedient to me, as opposed to standing here talking to us.”

“However, even though the Godchild stopped me many times, I still made some gains. At least your suspicions towards me were gone because of that night. After all, if a woman didn’t feel anything towards a man, why would she give him her virginity? As such, your guard towards me was lowered afterwards, and you even said that you would help me fulfil my desires. In fact, after you killed the Mad Scientist, you only felt suspicious towards me for a short period of time despite him yelling at me to stop you. I don’t know if I should feel moved by this trust or if I should laugh at you for your stupidity.”

The last trace of hope in Ling Chen’s heart shattered as he listened to Qi Yue’s mocking words. He fell silent before slowly smiling incredibly derisively – no one knew if this was towards Qi Yue or towards himself. “Ha, hahahaha… Qi Yue, you’ve spelt it out so clearly and laughed so uncaringly in front of me. Only just now did I believe that this was the true you. I’m stupid beyond belief… haha, since this is the case, there’s nothing to be said.”

Ling Chen slowly raised the Lunar Scourge Divine Spear and pointed it towards Qi Xing and then Qi Yue. “I don’t care about your goddamn God Creating Plan, nor do I care about your Godhood. If you want to take Sha Sha away from my side… you’ll have to step over my dead body first!!”

“Aiyaya, I wasn’t planning on stealing little Sha Sha away from you.” Qi Yue innocently shrugged. “So, you should point your spear back at Xing. However, I don’t think you can beat her. If Xing unleashed her full Godhood, killing you would be like moving her fingers, and even the Lunar Scourge wouldn’t be able to help you. As for me, since the Shura Plan has been cancelled, what I want…” Qi Yue opened her hand, and a rainbow, glass-like orb appeared in her hand. “Has already been obtained. The Godchild has nothing to do with me.”

When Ling Chen looked at the orb in Qi Yue’s palm, he felt as if he had been struck by lightning. His body trembled and his pupils contracted as he lunged forward, almost screaming, “That’s… That’s my Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb!! Return it to me!! Return it to me immediately!!”

What Qi Yue was holding was evidently the Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb they had created by fusing the Moon Goddesses’ blood, Demon Emperor’s soul, and Shura’s tears. If he could find the Sun God Orb, the Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb would be complete. The Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb was Ling Chen’s most treasured item because it was his only hope in awakening Shui Ruo, and it was even more important to him than his own life! For the Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb, he had spent almost all of his time in the Mystic Moon world – he had gone through countless struggles and dangers, and he had sacrificed much time with Tian Tian and the others. The Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb contained his greatest wish, and it was the brightest light of hope he had.

“Return it to you? Are you joking?” Ling Chen’s words sounded hilarious to King, causing her to coldly laugh. “Yue only agreed to come to the Mystic Moon world for the Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb, and the Shura Plan was only of secondary importance. Now that she has obtained what she wants, you want her to return it to you? How naïve.”

“What… did you say?” Qi Xing’s words made Ling Chen feel as if he had been struck by lightning. His entire body trembled as he stared at the Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb in Qi Yue’s hand.

“Aiya, Xing has already said it for me.” Qi Yue closed her fist and slightly smiled. “Our mother was a normal human, but she was our mother and closest person. After she died, my greatest wish was to bring her back. Afterwards, Xing found an ancient method for resurrection from her fragmented memories: the Variant Moon God Clan’s blood. The Moon Goddesses, who had inherited the Variant moon God Clan’s godly soul, could replace it, but it had to be the pure blood of a virgin; the remnant soul of an ancient demon – the Demon Emperor’s soul could replace this; the Shura’s tear – the tear of a fake Shura could replace it; and the Lunar Scourge. Because it was only reviving an ordinary human, using these replacements would suffice. Before, I doubted whether this would actually work, but when the Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb took form, I was able to rest at ease. The Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb is much smaller than what Xing described to me, but its shape and colour are just as she described, and it should be enough to awaken our mother, who has fallen asleep for many years.

“I need to really thank you for this. If it wasn’t for your efforts looking for the ingredients, I would have been in quite a difficult position. How should I thank you then?” Qi Yue smiled as she held the Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb.

“… This isn’t true! Return it to me! Return it to me right now!!” Ling Chen’s body trembled as he roared. If he lost the Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb, his hope of awakening Shui Ruo would be completely shattered, and all of his hard work would have been for nought. He would have worked so hard for someone else, and he would never see Shui Ruo again… Ling Chen felt as if his heart was going to explode, and he gritted his teeth and said in a low, hateful voice, “Qi Yue… if you take the Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb away, I… I’ll… never forgive you! I’ll find the Sun God Orb and destroy it, making it so that you’ll never have the complete Fate-Defying Heavenly Orb!!”

“Sun God Orb?” Qi Yue once again smiled beautifully. “No, that won’t happen. You won’t ever obtain the Sun God Orb because… I’ve always had the Sun God Orb!”

As she spoke, Qi Yue slowly opened her other hand, revealing an orb that was the same size and shape as the Moon God Orb and Star God Orb but with a slightly different colour. At the same time, the Lunar Scourge’s 14 other orbs lit up with light.
