Gu Xijiu quickly fed him another antidote, but Hua Qianjun struggled to swallow it. Unfortunately, there was no time for Gu Xijiu to treat him at that moment. When she was about to teleport away with Hua Qianjun, he grabbed her dress. “Miss Gu!”
Gu Xijiu frowned. “Yes?”
Since he had saved Gu Xijiu’s life, she was courteous to him. Hua Qianjun paused, and he seemed to feel it difficult to speak his mind. In the end, he decided to be frank. “I know that our princess is guilty, but she is so miserable as it is. Please, spare… her life.”
Gu Xijiu frowned. “The reason you saved me was to ask me to return a favor?”
Hua Qianjun’s eyelids seemed to close. “I hope you can promise me this one thing.”
Gu Xijiu casually continued, “Did you know that I could have escaped the attack even if you did not save me?”
Hua Qianjun did not speak a word. He realized that his current situation would not change Gu Xijiu’s mind. He softly added, “Okay, just forget that I asked.”
Gu Xijiu took a good look at him and decided to continue, “Although you have done something silly, you did try to save my life. I can make you a partial promise. From today onwards, I will not get her into trouble if she does not challenge me.”
That was her baseline, and that was already good enough for the injured man. Hua Qianjun heaved a sigh of relief. “Thank you! Thank you so much.”
Hua Qianjun knew that things were complicated between Gu Xijiu and Yun Qingluo, even though the former had saved the latter moments ago. Perhaps, she only did it as a favor to the Devil King. He would try his best to prevent Yun Qingluo from challenging Gu Xijiu in the future. If he could, he would report any incidents to the Devil King so that he could prevent them from getting too serious.
It was difficult for Hua Qianjun to find someone he loved. Now that he did, it was his duty to protect her. Throughout their conversation, Gu Xijiu had already provided him with basic treatment. However, she did not have enough time to do anything more for the moment.
Fortunately, it was curable. She teleported over to Guardian Jin and said, “Try to take out the venomous blood and apply this cream to his chest.” Without hesitation, Guardian Jin quickly rushed over to attempt to rescue his teammate.
Gu Xijiu turned back and looked around the battlefield. She noticed that only Di Fuyi and Mr. Zhu were left fighting the crocodile. The power of the crocodile was unimaginable since it got stronger! Di Fuyi and Mr. Zhu could only manage the situation using the array. Things were not looking up for the pair.
Mr. Zhu’s hair was in a mess, and his robes were torn into shreds. It was as if he was a victim of a stampede. Di Fuyi still looked tidy and neat, and although he did not seem to be in a hurry, he seemed extremely stressed compared to his usual self.
Fortunately, the spell that he cast earlier seemed to work. Furthermore, the number of rocks and bamboos also seemed to increase as Mr. Zhu continued to multiply the bamboos while Di Fuyi used spells to make the broken rocks as formidable as the unshattered ones.
