Chapter 1116: Mending the Sky

“No!” Chi You shouted.
Then, his body became incredibly red as if it was burning within. His entire body seemed to have become a gigantic furnace.
Chi You’s massive body blew up completely.
He chose to self-destruct at the moment the Source of God left his body. He wanted to use the last ounce of his strength to destroy the world and everything that was part of it.
The ground beneath Chi You cracked open towards all directions and lava started pouring out of the underground like a bunch of waterspouts. The entire Changyang Mountain was affected.
The impact was even spreading beyond the mountain.
The last explosion created a massive amount of power.
Even Fang Zhengzhi couldn’t nullify the power instantly. He was blown away and only managed to regain his footing after flipping several rounds in the air.
“The ground is being destroyed!”
“The Cosmic Disaster… The Cosmic Disaster is upon us once again?!”
“Run, hurry up and run!”
“We can’t run. We must stop the Cosmic Disaster. However… Who is going to lead us now?”
The Godly Beasts and Demons were extremely distressed.
However, many of them were honorable. They were still willing to do whatever it took to stop the Cosmic Disaster because they didn’t want destruction to befall the world and its inhabitants.
Soon, everyone was looking at Fang Zhengzhi.
“Shameless thief, Mother Earth led everyone and stopped the Cosmic Disaster tens of millions of years ago. Since I carry her bloodline, this is my responsibility!” Chi Guyan suddenly uttered at this moment.
The Godly Beasts and Demons instantly noticed her.
That was right!
Tens of millions of years ago, they followed Mother Earth’s lead and successfully stopped the Cosmic Disaster. Now that the Cosmic Disaster was upon the world once again, Chi Guyan, the one who possessed Mother Earth’s bloodline, was the perfect choice.
“We’re willing to follow Mother Earth’s lead!”
The Godly Beasts and Demons glanced at each other, and they all chose to agree with her.
However, Ping Yang grabbed Chi Guyan’s hand at this moment. She knew that Chi Guyan could do it, but Mother Earth expended every last bit of her energy in order to stop the Cosmic Disaster tens of millions of years ago.
Although Chi Guyan possessed Mother Earth’s bloodline now, no one knew that… If she could come back alive.
“No. Yan’er, you don’t have to go.” Fang Zhengzhi shook his head.
“I have to go. Shameless thief, you are stronger than me, and this world still needs your protection. Although Chi You is dead, who knows if there are other Demon Gods or Monster Gods that have been sealed up?” Chi Guyan knew what Fang Zhengzhi was trying to say, but she insisted on her decision.
“Yup, Chi Guyan is right!”
“The greater the power, the greater the responsibility!”
“We’ll stop the Cosmic Disaster. We were imprisoned in the galaxy to begin with, so even if we are imprisoned once again… Haha, it is what it is.”
Ping Yang didn’t say another word, but she was extremely reluctant. She gazed at Chi Guyan silently as tears built up in her eyes.
Chi Guyan caressed Ping Yang’s hair and said with a smile, “Ping Yang, you have to take care of the shameless thief from now on.”
“Yan’er, I said that you don’t have to go. It isn’t just you. All the Godly Beasts and Demons don’t have to go too.” Said Fang Zhengzhi.
“What do you mean?”
“Fang Zhengzhi, what are you thinking of?”
This time, everyone looked at Fang Zhengzhi with a confused expression.
They could understand why he wanted to stop Chi Guyan.
However, why did he want to stop everyone?
Did Fang Zhengzhi intend to watch the world burn, or did he think that he could stop the Cosmic Disaster alone?
That was impossible!
Even during ancient times when Mother Earth was around, it was impossible for a single person to stop the Cosmic Disaster. Everyone had to work together.
After all, it was the Cosmic Disaster!
There were too many of them.
Countless massive rocks, covered in flames, fell from the sky. They were extremely powerful. No matter how strong a person was, he couldn’t stop the insane number of meteorites.
“Shameless thief, are you saying that…” Chi Guyan was also puzzled.
“Yup, I’m saying that I could stop this Cosmic Disaster alone.” Fang Zhengzhi nodded his head with certainty.
All the Godly Beasts and Demons went slack-jawed.
Even though they somewhat saw it coming, they were still shocked when they actually heard the words coming out of his mouth.
‘Isn’t this guy too cocky?’
‘The Cosmic Disaster is a huge number of rocks. Most importantly, it covers such a huge area. How could a single person stop it?’
“Shameless thief, I know what you want to do, but there are so many of them… I think that…”
“If I do it the normal way, I certainly could not stop the Cosmic Disaster by myself. However, I can prevent the Cosmic Disaster from ever returning alone.” Fang Zhengzhi waved his hand.
“What do you mean?!”
“Prevent the Cosmic Disaster from ever returning?”
Chi Guyan, Ping Yang, and the others were as puzzled as the Godly Beasts and Demons.
Fang Zhengzhi knew that he couldn’t explain it now, but he had already grasped the true nature of the Cosmic Disaster.
It was a meteorite shower!
The meteorite shower was caused by the earth’s gravity.
To put it bluntly, before Chi You died, he exerted his greatest power and altered the orbit of this earth.
It was the same reason why nuclear weapons were banned in the world in his previous life.
When a nuclear weapon blew up on earth, it would actually alter the earth’s orbit apart from harming the environment. If dozens of nuclear weapons were detonated at the same location, it might throw the earth completely out of its orbit.
Even secondary and primary school students knew about this logic in his previous life.
However, it was extremely difficult to explain it to the inhabitants of this world.
Fang Zhengzhi couldn’t explain it, but he knew what to do. He just needed to correct this earth’s orbit, which was altered by a massive power.
Then, everything would return to normal.
“Shameless thief, can you really do it alone?” Chi Guyan gazed at Fang Zhengzhi. She could tell that he was serious.
“Yup, we’ve come so far, and I can’t lose you guys anymore, not a single one of you.” Fang Zhengzhi nodded seriously.
Chi Guyan fell silent.
Ping Yang, Yan Xiu, and the rest also fell silent.
Fang Zhengzhi didn’t say anything extremely heroic or noble, but they could all feel Fang Zhengzhi’s care for them at this moment.
There wasn’t a need for even another word.
That was because Fang Zhengzhi’s attitude had already proven everything.
“Stopping the Cosmic Disaster by himself?”
“Can Fang Zhengzhi really do it?”
The Godly Beasts and Demons found it hard to believe.
However, for some reason, they sensed an aura from Fang Zhengzhi. It was the aura of someone who was born to be a king.
At this moment, they all lowered their heads.
They bowed down to him… Willingly.
They knew that if Fang Zhengzhi really managed to pull it off, he would become a real God in this world, an unsurpassable God.
“I, will stop the Cosmic Disaster!” Fang Zhengzhi looked at the lava surging out of the ground, and he suddenly yelled, “Earth!”
After he yelled, a sky full of huge rocks appeared and fell towards the lava, stopping it from surging out of the ground.
However, there was so much lava, and these boulders weren’t enough.
Fang Zhengzhi kept uttering one word after another, and countless rocks appeared in the sky and dropped down. Moreover, rocks were growing out of the lava.
It was as if they were living things.
A massive downpour appeared.
A violent wind cooled the lava rapidly.
The ground finally began to calm down.
The Godly Beasts and Demons held their breaths at this moment.
A single person could actually be powerful enough to fill up the ground and stop the lava from pouring out. This scene showed them that Fang Zhengzhi was stronger than they could even imagine.
However, massive rocks, covered in flames, were still falling from the sky, igniting the trees on the ground and spreading the fire towards all directions.
Fang Zhengzhi looked up towards the sky at this moment.
“Yan’er, Ping Yang, Qingwu, Yu’er, and Yan Xiu, wait for me!” Fang Zhengzhi rushed into the sky and towards the massive rocks.
One of the rocks was blown to smithereens.
However, the rubble didn’t fall down. Instead, they turned to powder and permeated the air after Fang Zhengzhi pointed at them using an extraordinary technique.
Enormous power kept descending from the sky.
Rubbles filled the air.
Chi Guyan, Ping Yang, and the rest were gazing at the sky.
They could no longer see Fang Zhengzhi, but they could all sense the massive power that he constantly unleashed.
A mysterious force seemed to be impacting the ground continuously.
However, what was more mysterious… Was the fact that the ground wasn’t going to crack open.
That force was extremely gentle as if it was calming down the earth’s pulse rate. It made people feel at ease.
Strangely enough, they kept hearing loud noises coming from the sky.
Fang Zhengzhi was fighting against the massive rocks that were falling.
In the meantime, he was also slowly revitalizing the earth, its reiki, and its orbit. He was creating nutrients for the earth.
Time passed by slowly.
Two hours, four hours, six hours…
The noises in the sky didn’t stop.
Chi Guyan, Ping Yang, Yan Xiu, Yun Qingwu, and the rest didn’t leave.
The Godly Beasts and Demons also didn’t leave.
Everyone was waiting for the final conclusion of the Cosmic Disaster. Their faces were covered in sweat, and they were clearly nervous.
A day passed.
Two days passed.
Three days passed.
Seven days passed by in the blink of an eye.
Changyang Mountain’s earth had been scorched. The flames were put out and there weren’t any more dust in the sky.
That was because Fang Zhengzhi flew higher and higher while he was fighting against the Cosmic Disaster.
“Sister Yan, do you think he can come back?” Ping Yang stood on a huge rock and watched the sky as she asked Chi Guyan.
“He can.” Chi Guyan replied with certainty.
“But, it has already been seven days. Is he hungry? Did he run out of strength? He may be tired, should we help him…”
“Ping Yang, don’t you trust him?”
“I… I do!” Ping Yang nodded with a firm expression.
Yan Xiu and Nangong Mu were standing on a huge rock beside the two of them. They had also spent the past seven days here, but they never rested.
They just stood on the rock silently for seven days and seven nights.
The Godly Beasts and Demons found resting spots nearby. However, they didn’t leave either. All of them were waiting patiently.
There was no fighting.
The world seemed to have restored its peacefulness once again.
“Qingwu, do you want something to eat.” Monster Emperor Baizhi’s expression was full of motherly love as she placed a fruit in front of Yun Qingwu.
“It’s ok, mom.” Yun Qingwu shook her head.
For seven days and seven nights, she didn’t sleep or rest just like Chi Guyan and the others. She just stood there and waited quietly, and she didn’t leave no matter how hard Baizhi tried to convince her.
At this moment, an old man in a golden robe stuck his head out at the side, and his golden eyes were glowing faintly.
“If she doesn’t want it, why don’t you give it to me?” The old man licked his lips.
“…” Monster Emperor Baizhi was a little speechless, but she still passed the fruit to him. However, she uttered in a slightly condescending tone, “After all, you are still the number one Godly Beast of the ancient era, Xuanyuan Five. Can’t you have a little pride?”
“Pride? I was wounded and almost beaten to death by Chi You. Where were you guys at that moment? You have the audacity to talk to me about pride?” Xuanyuan Five, who had turned into his human form, didn’t care about what Baizhi said. He took the fruit and stuff it into his mouth angrily.
“Haha.” Monster Emperor Baizhi didn’t keep arguing with Xuanyuan Five.
After all, Xuanyuan Five wasn’t handsome after he turned into a man.
He was so ugly!
However, Xuanyuan Five himself didn’t realize that. After loitering around Baizhi for a while more, he turned towards Nangong Mu, who was in the distance.
“Hey, the kid from Emperor Yan’s family. I saved your life before. Does your Tree of God of bear any fruits? Why don’t you give me some?” Xuanyuan Five stretched his neck out and said.
“…” Nangong Mu glanced at Xuanyuan Five.
He stopped looking at him.
He chose to ignore him.
Xuanyuan Five got bored instantly. He knew that they were waiting, but they didn’t even utter a single damn word. He had been stuck in the galaxy for tens of millions of years, and he was lucky enough to survive Chi You’s attack. Now that Chi You was dead, he was finally free. He wanted to talk to someone, but he realized that everyone was ignoring him.
He was frustrated!
“Hey, Yun Qingwu, aren’t you the child of both Demon and Monster race? Your mom is a Monster, in fact, she is the Monster Emperor. In that case, your dad is a Demon, and he should be the Demon Lord… By the way, why didn’t I see your dad? Is your parents’ relationship bad? They quarreled, didn’t they? Come, tell me all about it.” Xuanyuan Five found a spot, sat down, and raised his head while waiting for the story.
However, his eyes became wide open as soon as he sat down and raised his head.
“Eh? A star is… Falling?”
