Chapter 2422 – This Feeling Was So Good (2)
This bastard always malfunctioned during critical times! Gu Xijiu had given up; however, Di Fuyi looked at the Firmament Stone and suddenly raised his sleeves on the jade bracelet. The Firmament Stone immediately flashed and shone brightly.
Gu Xijiu suddenly remembered that she had sealed the five senses of Firmament Stone before entering the illusion to find Di Fuyi. No wonder it did not have any response earlier. After the Firmament Stone woke up, it was still a bit confused by its surroundings, so it asked a series of questions.
“Where are we?”
“Is this a meteorite rain?”
“Is this an illusion or reality?”
“Is this the end of the world?”
“Master, I am impressed! You actually saved him! It looks like he is fully recovered!” The Firmament Stone’s last remark was said with elation.
Gu Xijiu was speechless. She seriously doubted whether this guy knew what she did after she entered into the illusion. Or was he a pimp? Anyway, it was naturally not the time to discuss this with it. Gu Xijiu was trying to explain the current situation to the Firmament Stone. Before she could really feed it with some useful information, Di Fuyi had interrupted them.
He quickly told the Firmament Stone about Yun Qingluo. Although it was brief, he seemed to cover all the important points. Finally, he asked the Firmament Stone, “She should have cast a spell in this swamp. Do you have a way to crack it?”
The Firmament Stone did not respond, but it started to flash. It looked as if it was searching for relevant information inside itself. After a while, it spoke weakly, “This spell seems like a combination of ancient and modern magic. It is extremely complicated to set this up and requires very stringent conditions.”
The Firmament Stone began to list everything it knew in detail before it was interrupted by Gu Xijiu, “I am not interested in how it came about! I just want to know how to crack it.”
The Firmament Stone was bothered by her impatience. “After I explain the origin of this spell, then you can analyze the appropriate way out.”
Di Fuyi hugged Gu Xijiu, “It’s alright. Let it speak. Perhaps we can analyze clues from the people behind the scenes from its explanations.” Gu Xijiu decided to give in and kept quiet while the Firmament Stone continued.
According to the Firmament Stone, the person who taught Yun Qingluo the spell must be at least close to the level of a Great Deity, or even slightly above it. It seemed that the culprit had used a spell to bring Yun Qingluo back as a new person, and even transferred some of his skills to Yun Qingluo in the process of teaching her. It was because of this person’s support that Yun Qingluo was able to tie her soul to this swamp.
Yun Qingluo used this swamp as her last resort to bring her enemies down, and so here they were in this situation. Escaping this place would be impossible without breaking the spell cast by Yun Qingluo. After the analysis from the Firmament Stone, Gu Xijiu’s heart sank. Based on what it had said, Zhu Duqing and the rest would not be able to escape either!
As she was with Di Fuyi, they were able to protect themselves from the meteorite rain and lava due to the wizardry barrier that Di Fuyi had set up to protect them. However, the two guards that came along with them were incomparable to Di Fuyi, so they would have probably perished by now.
As for Mr. Zhu, this guy had some strange skills and magical weapons, but whether he could resist the melting magma was still an unknown. The burning question right now was, who was the person behind all this mess? According to the Firmament Stone, the magic involved was from a time even later than when Gu Xijiu was born.
If Gu Xijiu’s era was in the year 2018, then this person probably existed in the year 3018, which was indeed a distant future.
