Chapter 2418 – Could Not Be Saved
The sudden loud cry had alarmed Guardian Jin. He ran toward the sound to take a look and was shocked by what his eyes had seen. “Hua, what did you do?!”
Hua Qianyu seemed to come to his senses and was also stunned by what he saw. “I…”
He obviously did not want to kill her, but he seemed to be momentarily possessed. He looked at Yun Qingluo to see if she was still alive. However, there were no vital signs left. She could not be saved.
Zhu Duqing came over as well to check on the two of them. “Just leave her be.”
Hua Qianyu was disappointed with himself. “The Devil King had instructed us to keep her alive…”
Zhu Duqing did not care. “The reason why your Devil King wanted to keep her alive was because of their past relationship. Since she is now dead, what can you do? By the way, why would you kill her? You even shattered her heart.”
Hua Qianyu lamented, “This… She had tricked me into killing her with a magical voice…”
Zhu Duqing remained silent. He frowned as he walked around Yun Qingluo’s body. Although nothing seemed wrong on the surface, he had a hunch that things were not what they appeared to be.
Guardian Jin suddenly heard something. “Hey, are the animals outside a little instigated?”
Zhu Duqing tried to listen, and his facial expression suddenly changed slightly. “Something is wrong!”
As they were now deep underground, they should not be able to hear the creatures in the swamp. However, they could hear beasts approaching them from all directions right now. It was getting louder and louder, and the ground tremored more fiercely as it did.
The gravel above their heads started crumbling down too.
“Gosh, this cave is going to collapse!” Hua Qianyu expressed his concern. It felt like a level eight earthquake, and the three of them certainly found it difficult to keep their ground. If an earthquake happened deep in a cave, it was merely a catastrophe for those present.
They must escape immediately, or they would be buried deep underground.
“Devil King and Miss Gu are still inside the wizardry barrier!” Guardian Jin yelled and rushed to the side of the barrier. Hua Qianyu also followed him.
As the two of them were in a hurry, no one brought Yun Qingluo’s body with them. As they turned back, they could see that the place where she lied suddenly split into a big hole, and her body was subsequently swallowed into the hole.
Because of the earthquake, all the rocks were shifted, which inevitably broke the rock array made by Gu Xijiu. There were big and small stones crashing into each other, which created a big area of dust. Zhu Duqing ran towards the barrier and was ready to rescue Gu Xijiu at the first opportunity that he had.
All three of them were now right in front of the place where the barrier stood, and in the dust, they faintly saw two figures hugging each other. As the dust was still settling, they could not see the two figures clearly.
Zhu Duqing shouted, “Master Xijiu!” He was about to leap over but realized that the two people, who were hugging each other, suddenly moved. He had not seen the appearance of the two people but noticed that there was a seven-colored ray of light that appeared in front of him.
A milky white layer appeared instantly, covering the two people as the other three held their breaths. What did this mean?
Guardian Jin and Guardian Hua were suddenly ecstatic. “Devil King!”
This milky white layer did not last a long time. It took a minute or two to remove the cover, but it eventually revealed the two people inside.
