Chapter 2408 – An Abnormal Soul-Tracking Spell (4)
Speaking of which, Yun Qingluo was nowhere to be seen. If they had left their bodies behind together, they should be together with him, right?
The Firmament Stone had clearly asked her before, that no matter what they were doing, she would still step in and save him. Her answer might sound carefree, but she was actually a little worried. She was worried that they might be making love to one another when she came by, or that they were having some sweet little moments together. She was mentally prepared to witness that before her eyes.
From the way the Firmament Stone asked her questions, she had already figured out that they would surely be together. However, she looked around and was overwhelmed by the slopes that were ablaze with flower blossoms and some dense trees. A white tent on the slope had caught her attention.
Gu Xijiu could immediately tell that it was Di Fuyi’s. If he even had the time to make and secure a tent, he should be doing just fine. Perhaps, Yun Qingluo could be in the tent right now.
Was this a part of Di Fuyi’s date? Had he left his body behind and took her soul with him to go on a date in the wild? If that were the case, was it inappropriate for Gu Xijiu to be here?
Gu Xijiu wanted to turn around and just leave. However, her reasoning stopped her from acting impulsively. She had been through a lot to be here, so she definitely needed to find out more about him before leaving.
There she stood, contemplating if she should approach his tent using her teleportation technique to see if Yun Qingluo was in the tent. If she was really in there, then there was no need for Gu Xijiu to show up. She could find her way back just like how she came in and pretended nothing ever happened. She could also avoid the awkwardness since she would wake up first.
She was caught in a daze when Di Fuyi turned around and saw her there. Gu Xijiu was still figuring out her next step, but it was all too late. Their eyes met. Her heart raced at that very moment. She had not had a clear view of his face, but she decided that she needed to stand her ground. “Mister, you look at ease here! It is such a carefree day.”
Gu Xijiu was relieved to see him all well and safe but was also irritated at the back of her mind. A little bit of sarcasm would be appropriate to cover her embarrassment.
Di Fuy did not seem to respond in kind, however. The look in his eyes was rather stern, almost lethal. The icy look in his eyes made her skin creep. Gu Xijiu could almost feel his hatred.
Troubled, she wondered if her presence was actually a disturbance. The look in his eyes was simply unforgiving. It was as if he wanted her dead.
Obviously irritated, she gave him a tight smile and continued to bombard him with a series of ironic questions. “You must be here to practice. Perhaps, you are here with a friend? The body that you so impulsively left behind looked as good as dead. Your men were terribly worried as there was no way they could wake you up; they thought you were caught in some serious trouble. They asked for my help, right after I was done with the alchemy. I agreed to help, just as you have helped me many times before. Now that I know that you are safe, I should not be here to interrupt you anymore. You may proceed without me. Farewell.”
She was terribly embarrassed and was ready to leave right away. Also, she decided that she needed to give the Firmament Stone a lesson for tricking her about the situation.
“Gu Xijiu!” She could hear Di Fuyi’s hoarse voice, calling out to her from afar. His voice sounded rough and harsh, like he was a bit unwell. However, he was still charming to her. Nevertheless, she could tell from his tone that he was somewhat dubious of her existence.
Gu Xijiu raised her eyebrow at him and nodded briefly. She did not use any facial disguise technique, so he should be able to recognize her just fine. Nonetheless, his expression clearly showed his disbelief.
Was he surprised by her presence here in his space? Now that he had already seen her, Gu Xijiu no longer felt the need to hide anything. She looked at him proudly and asked, “Why did you call me?”
Slowly, Di Fuyi paced towards her. His grudge disappeared as soon as he could see her clearly. He was still gazing at her intensely. “Is it really you?”
Gu Xijiu was thoroughly confused. What kind of situation was this?
