Chapter 2417 – All She Had Created Was Someone Else’s Success (4)
He looked at the person in his arms and heaved a sigh of relief. Since she was by his side, he would push himself to work harder! Of course, he would also push her to become an immortal as soon as possible so that she could return to the Upper Bound with him. Besides, she had been practiced to the level of a Great Deity up there. Her skills should be comparable to his mother’s.
Gu Xijiu had told Di Fuyi before that her accomplishments were achieved in the Lower Bound. When she was still less than 50 years old, she had already cultivated to the level of a Great Deity. This was very extraordinary! The fact that she did so in the Lower Bound was even more remarkable.
There were only two possibilities for this to happen. First, all the skills were passed to her before the death of Huang Tu. However, as Huang Tu disappeared, she lost her memory about it. Second, she was, indeed, a very extraordinary person. Among these two, the first one seemed to make more sense to Di Fuyi, but he could not completely rule out the second conjecture either.
After being punished by the heavenly laws and cursed to be in the Shura World, Gu Xijiu’s abilities had deteriorated substantially. However, perhaps her abilities would be restored once she makes it out? Di Fuyi bowed his head and kissed her forehead at the thought. He held her tightly in his arms and said, “Xijiu, although I am the reincarnation of Huang Tu, I still hope that you can fall in love with me in this life.”
This was one of the reasons why he never told Gu Xijiu that he was the reincarnation of Huang Tu even after he confirmed that with Yun Qingluo. He really wanted Gu Xijiu to love him for the man he was right now as opposed to the person in her memory, which he did not know.
Di Fuyi calculated the time and realized that it was still early. Since Gu Xijiu was tired, he should let her continue to rest. Therefore, he would let her sleep for another four hours. Right after that, they would need to return to their bodies and settle matters in the Shura World.
Hua Qianyu had killed Yun Qingluo! He and Guardian Jin had been waiting outside the wizardry barrier set in place by Gu Xijiu. They were tasked to guard Yun Qingluo while waiting for Gu Xijiu to return together with Di Fuyi.
As time passed by, the two of them grew rather uneasy. They were anxious, and Zhu Duqing was also worried. In fact, Zhu Duqing was more worried than them! He wanted to break into the barrier several times, but he could not enter it. Furthermore, Guardian Jin and Guardian Hua had been preventing him from doing so. The two guards were afraid that he would give them trouble, so Guardian Jin was assigned to follow Zhu Duqing at all times while Hua Qianyu was to guard Yun Qingluo.
Yun Qingluo had been snoring away, so Hua Qianyu was not too concerned. However, Yun Qingluo seemed to have opened her eyes after some time, and Hua Qianyu was shocked by her action. He wanted to ask her if she was the culprit behind the Devil King’s current predicament, but he was too stunned to think clearly at the time.
“Hua Qianyu, please kill me. I have suffered enough. You do love me, right? Can you even stand seeing me this way? Don’t you want revenge for your brother and your niece? Kill me so that you can avenge them and fulfill my request simultaneously.”
Although Yun Qingluo did not open her mouth to speak, Hua Qianyu could hear her as if she did. It was a very tempting request. Hua Qianyu ignored her at the beginning. However, he could not seem to resist her constant persuasions that came in the form of threats, tears, and pleas. She had used all the methods she could.
Hua Qianyu’s heart was shaken, and finally, he was controlled by the voice. He pulled out his sword, and stabbed it into Yun Qingluo’s heart! He even took the opportunity to shatter her heart into pieces!
Yun Qingluo screamed momentarily, and her body fell gently to the ground.
