Chapter 2305 – Breakout (6)
Gu Xijiu’s heart felt as if a sharp knife was stabbing it. In utter disappointment, she closed her eyes slightly. He really came just in time to rescue Yuanyuan!
Yuanyuan was smiling at first, but her heart suddenly stopped. She had heard from the maid who borrowed his magic weapon that the Devil King had sent a notice out in the afternoon that he was going to meditate for 18 hours and that no one should disturb him during this time. It had only been four hours since that message, but he was here!
The other servants and the crowd had all kneeled. “All hail the Devil King!”
Di Fuyi only nodded slightly at their gesture. His glare easily made someone feel as though they were in an ice tub. The people present were all too afraid even to move.
Di Fuyi’s eyes certainly swept pass Gu Xijiu, but he did not stop at all. Gu Xijiu bit her lips and did not look at him again. Since he had come, he would definitely prevent her from hurting Yuanyuan. Hence, her anger at being stabbed by Yuanyaun’s sword could not be avenged for the time being.
She ignored the pain of the injury under her rib and looked down at the little baby in the net. As the net was very tight, and the little baby was wrapped tightly in it, like a cockroach. In the dense net, she could barely see the face of the little one. He did not cry or scream and seemed to be asleep.
Had he died because of the pain? Gu Xijiu quickly examined if he was breathing and fortunately, the little baby was alive. Perhaps, he actually fell asleep. She felt somewhat relieved given the circumstances. It was good that the child was fine.
This Universal Net could not be released at the moment, so she just put it aside first. Gu Xijiu was suffering from massive pain in her ribs, but she stood up straight because she knew that it was not the time to look weak. She still had a hard fight and did not have time to heal herself!
She knew that he recognized her. After all, when she was looking for him, she was in this appearance. He said that he wanted to be separated with her and that he already had another sweetheart.
Now, she even encountered a big conflict with his favorite sister. She had mentally prepared herself that he was going to be biased toward his sister. Hence, she had to be strong.
“What is going on?” Di Fuyi finally opened his mouth and looked at Princess Yuanyuan.
Princess Yuanyuan seemed to be frightened. Her face was pale as she tried to explain the incident. She started by telling Di Fuyi how she had bought the Silver Wolf for 100,000 devil coins. Was she trying to tell him that Gu Xijiu and Luo Zheng partnered up to cheat her? And after that, they sneaked into her house to steal the Silver Wolf?
At the moment, the owner of the restaurant had arrived, and he had testified for the purchase of the Silver Wolf by Yuanyuan. The person who dared to deceive the sister of Devil King was now hated by the entire crowd. The onlookers all called for the swindler to be executed.
Di Fuyi raised his hand and requested for silence. He finally looked at Gu Xijiu and asked, “What do you have to say?”
Gu Xijiu chuckled. “Princess Yuanyuan is really good at telling a story! Little Xie Zhi is my favorite pet, and I have never thought of selling it! I had something to do at noon, so I requested Luo Zheng to help me to take care of it. I didn’t expect it to be bought by the princess during this period…”
Servant Ye interrupted her, “No matter what relationship you have with Luo Zheng, it’s true that the princess bought the little Silver Wolf! Since the deal had been done, it means that this little Silver Wolf belongs to our princess! You came and took it away from her house, and that is considered stealing!”
The crowd also agreed with her statement.
Gu Xijiu sneered. “Did Luo Zheng tell you that little Xie Zhi was not owned by him? Did he tell you that I, Hua Xuyue, owned it before he sold it to you?”
Servant Ye was stunned and tried to argue, “Since he is your companion, he has the right to decide for you. Not to mention that you also told him the price! As long as it is sold at the price you said, there is no difference whether it is sold by him or you.”
This statement was not entirely convincing; therefore, some people agreed with her, but some hesitated.
