Subconsciously, Gu Xijiu wanted to pull the big net. However, before her fingertips had touched it, the net was pulled up firmly and disappeared in the air. The last thing Gu Xijiu noticed was the baby’s cries.
Gu Xijiu’s facial expression changed abruptly! The Universe Net was a terrifying instrument. It would tighten when its victims struggled. There was even a spike-like mechanism in the net, so no matter who was caught in it, they would be hurt! Hao Er was still so young, how could he bear the pain?
Gu Xijiu had problems of her own now as there were more than ten people around her in the dark at that moment. The group surrounded Gu Xijiu. The woman who headed the troop was Servant Ye. Her pretty face was fierce. She lifted her fingers and shouted, “Such a bold evil girl! You actually dared to pretend to be me and entered into princess’ house to steal her treasures. Did you know that it is a sin?!”
Gu Xijiu ignored her. “Let the child go!”
There was a flash of light all of a sudden, and a woman in a white dress and white veil suddenly appeared. She had a curvy body shape with some of her hair tied up. It was Princess Yuanyuan!
She looked down at Gu Xijiu and said coldly, “Who are you? How dare are you to come to my house to steal?” Princess Yuanyuan did not have the net in her hand. Apparently, she already hid the child.
It seemed that today was going to be a difficult day unless Gu Xijiu abandoned the kid. She knew that some of the troops here were weaker than the others. Perhaps she could escape if she chose the right direction. Among them were four guards with high skills; they were much stronger than Gu Xijiu. When Gu Xijiu went into the Devil Palace, she saw them while she was hiding in the dark. They should be the guards who were usually around Di Fuyi. It seemed that they were seconded by the princess.
She knew that she would not be able to win in a physical fight. So, she could only rely on strategy and tactics to engineer her escape. Gu Xijiu’s mind worked very quickly, and she had already analyzed the situation in the blink of an eye.
Seeing that the guards had surrounded her, Gu Xijiu raised her head and whistled very loudly. The sound was clear and loud, so much so that it could crack a stone. The whole area actually tremored slightly.
Sunset had just fallen over the place while twilight had not risen. Although the east of the city was a relatively remote place, there were still pedestrians passing by. Her whistle already alerted seven or eight pedestrians and shocked a large number of families in the east of the city. People heard the sounds and started to rush out. In just a moment, the place had been surrounded by 50 to 60 people; the number kept increasing.
Princess Yuanyuan slightly frowned. However, Servant Ye seemed to be smug. She shouted, “The princess is here to catch a thief who entered her house to steal from her! You do not have to panic.”
After she spoke, many eyes turned to Gu Xijiu. She did not look like a thief at all, even though she had removed the makeup she used to disguise herself as Servant Ye. She was carrying the look she used for the Hua Xuyue persona.
She raised her head slightly and smiled coldly. “This is strange; what have I stolen?”
“You have stolen the little Xie Zhi!” Servant Ye voiced sharply.
“Are you sure?”
“Yes! I am certain.”
Gu Xijiu smiled coldly. “Hilarious! It is my favorite beast! When did it become yours?” She patted little Xie Zhi’s head. “Good boy, identify your master. Did you come from the princess’ house?”
Little Xie Zhi immediately shook its head
“Are you my pet?” Little Xie Zhi nodded continuously. It also licked the back of Gu Xijiu’s hand with its tongue.
Everyone remained silent. Even a blind man could tell who was the rightful owner of this little Xie Zhi!
