Chapter 2398 – Who Had Been Schemed? (7)
Guardian Jin wanted to end Yun Qingluo, but he had to obey the Devil King’s order. There must be a bigger plan that he was not seeing. But what was the Devil King planning on to do? Guardian Jin could not figure it out though he knew that keeping her alive was more than just to interrogate her.
For someone who was as careful as Yun Qingluo, it would be difficult to make her speak the truth. Furthermore, keeping her alive would make things complicated for the group as she was sure to have more evil schemes. Hence, for now, all he could do was to keep his eyes on her and make sure she did not have any opportunity to do something to sabotage them.
Di Fuyi took a walk around the bamboo house and found a place to sit outside. Zhu Duqing designed the house to be rather uninviting as he did not want her to be interrupted. Hence, there were no doors or windows.
According to Zhu Duqing, Gu Xijiu could only leave the house when the alchemy was complete to make sure that there was no disruption while she was working. It was not an easy task to get the guiding herb, so Di Fuyi was very anxious about the result as well. He wanted to help her, but he dared not interrupt at this moment.
The journey had been exhausting for him, so he closed his eyes to meditate for a moment. In fact, his body was aching from the journey.
Di Fuyi was not keeping Yun Qingluo alive simply because he felt indebted to her. In fact, he had already repaid her more than she deserved. It was Yun Qingluo, who was indebted to him for his kindness. Yet, he could somehow tell that killing Yun Qingluo was unwise at the moment, and would probably initiate a series of unfortunate events. Yun Qingluo seemed too desperate to die.
In this peculiar place, he had to be extra careful not to make any impulsive decisions. He took a look at Yun Qingluo and saw her lying on the ground helplessly without even the strength to sit up. She kept trying to trigger the two escorts, but they did not even care to listen.
Relieved, he knew that he would always need great people to help him do great things. Hua Qianyu was a real talent that was rare to come by. He was a man of great capability and loyalty. Di Fuyi knew that he had feelings for Yun Qingluo, but he needed to see the harsh truth for himself. With this, he would be able to let go of her. Hua Qianyu certainly deserves someone better. Yun Qingluo was unworthy of him.
Although the poisonous swamp area was dangerous, it certainly had great views. There were no animals in sight, either. Alone, Zhu Duqing sat guarding the entrance from above and was pleased to find no intrusions.
Meanwhile, Di Fuyi took the time to meditate and recover. Perhaps he was really tired, so he could feel his muscles aching everywhere. There was an uneasy flow of warm blood across his chest, making him feel rather grumpy. He needed to sit down and keep calm.
Whenever he meditated, he could always calm down immediately and immerse himself in the state of complete oblivion, but this time was different. He fell asleep immediately.
He had a dream. It was a wet dream. In the dream, there were flashes of light everywhere that brought him back to the village that was concealed within a wizardry barrier. He had just eaten animal testes and penis. Gu Xijiu then came by to offer her bed to him and ask that they sleep together.
It was a crazy night that was unforgettable. Many times, he reminisced every sweet little moment that he had during that night. He was doing so again in his dream.
Certainly, the dream was not a complete reflection of what happened that day. In the dream, he felt like he had just woken up from a night of lovemaking. She had already left the bed, so he woke up and went outside to look for her.
He walked out of the white tent and saw a big lake.
