Even if Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi’s abilities could prevent the little devils from hurting them, once an alarm was sounded, Yun Yanli’s subordinates would enter into his lair, and they would not be able to hide anymore. Hence, it was necessary to subdue them.
After he was done with the little devils, Di Fuyi started to store the unaffected spiritual crystals into his own storage space and left the guarded crystals untouched so as not to alarm anyone.
Meanwhile, Gu Xijiu had already found a secret door for them to continue moving forward. To open this door, one had to possess at least a level nine spiritual power. In the past, Gu Xijiu was unable to open the door. But this time, she could!
She opened the secret door in just a few seconds and found a pathway made with jade behind the door. This jade could absorb all the light in the area, so when the door was opened, the hallway looked completely dark.
There seemed to be a draught of cold wind circulating inside the hallway. Even though the wind was not strong, the cold wind seemed to get straight into the bones. Gu Xijiu shivered, and the hair on her back was standing in unison.
Di Fuyi pulled her behind him and said, “Don’t rush; follow me.”
He raised his hand and created a small wizardry barrier around her body. The barrier was able to shield her from the cold wind. This man really treated her like a prized porcelain doll. Gu Xijiu looked at his broad shoulders and muscular figure from the back and was impressed. However, she also found it somewhat weird. It was just a gust of wind. He was really overreacting. Did he really think that she was so weak? Nonetheless, it felt so good to be protected by her sweetheart!
Gu Xijiu put her face on his back and embraced his waist with her arms. “Fuyi, I really love you!”
Di Fuyi was stunned for a moment. After a brief pause, he simply nodded in response. It was completely out of her expectations to see him acknowledge her sweet words so nonchalantly. The man was so playful, and she definitely expected him to respond sweetly. Did he not like her to be so open about her feelings?
The lady was not very open about her feelings, but she could feel how much Di Fuyi cared for her. Nonetheless, the awkward response made her regret her action. She wanted to pull her hands away from his waist, but he held her wrists and did not let go.
Although the entire place was dark, Gu Xijiu’s abilities allowed her to see everything clearly. She saw that Di Fuyi’s ears were slightly reddish. She also realized that the palms that were holding her hands were very hot. It was as if an iron was on her hands.
Was this guy embarrassed? He had been shy before. With that note, Gu Xijiu could not help but smile. She was not a very expressive person, but when she was with him, she was always inexplicably happy.
If she were not worried about the abrupt changes that were expected to hit him, she would have been even happier.
“How do you feel?” Gu Xijiu asked softly.
“Very good.” Di Fuyi whispered to her.
“Stupid! I want to know about your condition. Do you feel any pain?”
Gu Xijiu breathed a sigh of relief. “Perhaps, the poison has been digested by your body and will not erupt any further. After all, if I am not mistaken, the Purple Cloud Mushroom is the spiritual power from your past life.”
