Chapter 2373 – Working Together (2)

He gave Gu Xijiu a judgmental look, for she did not seem like the person who would care for a child of unknown background and origin. Hesitantly, he half-jokingly added, "He is our child. I will not make him suffer."

Gu Xijiu only responded briefly with a nod. She did not feel the need to discuss the child's parenthood at this time. She was just overwhelmed by her guilty conscience. Moreover, it was not appropriate for him to talk about the child that he had with another woman in front of Yun Qingluo. Shouldn't he be worried that she would be jealous? Or was he using the child to trigger her even more, so she would obey him?

Perhaps, there was indeed an argument between Di Fuyi and Yun Qingluo as they refused to talk to one another at the moment. And maybe, the only reason Di Fuyi invited Gu Xijiu along was to make Yun Qingluo feel a sense of competition. Her mind swirled with the many different possibilities. She had to stop.

Gu Xijiu realized that every time something that was related to Di Fuyi happened, she always tended to overthink the entire situation. It was not like her at all. For now, she should focus on the search for the Silver Ring Crocodile.

Speaking of which, she wondered how Di Fuyi found out that she was actually looking for the Silver Ring Crocodile. He seemed to be looking for the same thing as well. What was the crocodile for? She had to ask him. "How did you know that I was looking for the Silver Ring Crocodile?"

"Aren't you going to use its heart as the guiding herb for your antitoxin?" He answered.

Hesitantly, Gu Xijiu agreed. "Yes." She then threw another hateful look to Yun Qingluo and added, "Thanks to her."

Yun Qingluo's face was still pale. Quietly, she pretended like she did not hear anything and continued to stare blankly into the distance.

"That is all that matters. Although we came from different paths, we all share the same purpose."

Gu Xijiu's expression changed a little. Apparently, Yun Qingluo was forced to be here. Di Fuyi must have made her do so. That must be the reason for their argument, she thought. The one who caused the trouble must be the one who ended it.

Was he trying to show him how sincere he was in finding a solution? Was he trying to ask for her forgiveness for what Yun Qingluo had done, simply by finding the cure? He was unnecessarily thoughtful.

Gu Xijiu was somewhat convinced that Di Fuyi actually wanted to be a friend, though they were not able to be together as a couple. She took a deep breath and answered smilingly, "Thanks for doing this for me. I shall accept your kindness. All right, I see that all of us here share a common goal. What should we do next?"Find authorized novels in Webnovel,faster updates, better experience,Please click for visiting.

Di Fuyi looked at her and answered, "I went on an exploration into the depths of the swamp and realized that the place was terribly dangerous. It is surrounded by many kinds of savagely fierce and poisonous creatures. If we choose to fight them off in the core, it would be too dangerous for us, as we might draw unnecessary attention from other creatures. Moreover, the Silver Ring Crocodiles live in groups. When one of them is under attack, the others will defend it. We have to draw the specific Silver Ring Crocodile out of its group and kill it alone."

Gu Xijiu thought about his proposal for a moment. "I can teleport. I will draw the crocodile out of its group, while the rest of you work together and attack it at another spot."

No one was able to escape faster than her. She was the best candidate to be the bait and draw out the crocodile. However, Di Fuyi disagreed. "No way, it is too dangerous for you to act alone. Besides, Yun Qingluo needs to be there as well. We will go with you."

Gu Xijiu looked at him in disbelief. "Why is her presence required? Does she know about the place well?"

If Yun Qingluo knew how to make the poison by using the Silver Ring Crocodile, she must have been here in the poisonous swamp before and managed to escape safely. She must know a thing or two about this palace. Di Fuyi did not say anything but looked at Yun Qingluo sternly.
