He steadied himself next to her and challenged Di Fuyi, who was now on the other side of the door. “Don’t dare to chase after us? It seems like the Devil King only wants the kid but not the mother…”
Di Fuyi faintly replied, “She doesn’t want to stay by my side anyway. She even agreed with your conditions and asked for help. You guys settle the agreement yourself; I don’t want to be involved in it.” He sounded very firm and decisive.
Gu Xijiu could feel her heart shattering into pieces. Everything that happened was clearly within her expectation, but hearing the words from him personally was more hurtful that she thought it would be.
Mr. Zhu saw her expression. Then, he teased Di Fuyi with a sarcastic laugh, “Haha! You are really the Devil King. You are cruel enough!” Mr. Zhu chuckled and did not say anything anymore.
With a wave, a glimpse of green light flashed by them. Soon, the door disappeared.
“Are you hurt by his heartless reply?” Mr. Zhu asked.
Gu Xijiu did not want it to look like a joke to him, so she answered nonchalantly, “I already saw it coming. I am fine.”
Mr. Zhu then noticed her pale complexion and exclaimed, “You are badly injured!”
Her complexion was as pale as a sheet. “If it were otherwise, I would not have agreed to your terms,” Gu Xijiu responded with a hint of sarcasm.
While she was busy dealing with Di Fuyi, Mr. Zhu never stopped sending her directed audios. He offered help in exchange for her time. She was asked to stay by his side for ten days and teach him the facial disguise technique. Gu Xijiu ignored him at first. She completely disregarded his boisterous requests.
Fueled by her indignation, she finally agreed to Mr. Zhu’s terms. It was all because of one impulsive decision. The moment she stepped into the door, she regretted her decision a little. Then, Di Fuyi’s words changed her mind.
She only regretted that she was not able to take the child with her. She was worried about the safety of the baby. When Di Fuyi finally found out that the little infant was not his child, she was afraid that he would send the baby away into exile.
Even without the paternity test, Princess Yuanyuan still remained a threat to the baby too. She was such a horrible woman. Once she was married to Di Fuyi, she would then become the baby’s stepmother. Gu Xijiu was worried that the baby would not be well taken care of by his new parents. Therefore, she was determined to get the baby.
Temporarily, she had to stay with Mr. Zhu in order to treat her wounds. For the next ten days, as agreed, she would teach him how to utilize the facial disguise technique. When the time was up, she would then go and save the baby.
However, things changed very quickly when she finally noticed the severity of her wound. She had to ask Mr. Zhu for some privacy in order to check the wound on her ribs. The pain was as bad as the sting of a scorpion. Instead of being swollen, the wound was actually a display of five variant colors in red, black, green, yellow, and white.
The vivid display spread out around the wound, making it look like a blossoming flower of varied colors. To her surprise, her blood looked normal. Also, there was not a lot of blood from the wound. When she first got hurt, the pain drove her to check the wound. She was relieved to know that the blood was still red in color and thought that it was nothing serious.
Little did she know that she was actually poisoned by some kind of poison that she had never seen before. She tried to suppress the pain while squeezing out the blood around the affected area. She also had to take some antitoxin pills to drive out the remaining toxins in her body.
