Chapter 2472 – Rearranging The Starry Array
Many black shadows were flying around the place all of a sudden, and Gu Xijiu’s hands turned cold almost instantly.
Those shadows were young Bloody Bats! There seemed to be more than a thousand of them flying around the galaxy replica as if they were trying to absorb something. However, they must have been alarmed by something in the vicinity because they suddenly flew out of the area all at once, which felt as though a whirlwind was leaving the place.
Gu Xijiu held her breath the entire time as she watched the bats exit the place from where she and Di Fuyi were standing. Had they not teleported away in time, they would have to face the wrath of the bats head-on. Instead, they were now in hiding in a quiet part of the array. To ensure their safety, Di Fuyi had cast a spell to conceal their breaths so that the bats would not be able to track them.
Was this the home of the Bloody Bats? Where were they off to this time? Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi looked at each other in hopes that the other would have a clue. Gu Xijiu asked, “Should we follow the bats?”
Di Fuyi was looking at the starry array and did not know what to think. Being lost in his thoughts, he did not even hear Gu Xijiu. Hence, she poked his waist and asked, “What’s wrong?”
Di Fuyi regained his senses and whispered to her, “This starry array seems to be a bit familiar.” He was certain that he had seen it somewhere but possibly in a slightly different arrangement. When he saw the ‘stars,’ he had a sudden urge to rearrange them. It was as if something possessed him to put things in order.
He turned to ask Gu Xijiu, “When you were on Earth, did you ever make any starry arrays?”
Gu Xijiu shook her head. “No, but I have always watched the stars.”
“What about Huang Tu?” Di Fuyi asked.
Gu Xijiu was stunned by his question. “I… I don’t remember.”
Di Fuyi knocked his forehead with his palm. Was this part of his past that he could not remember? Thinking logically about the matter, he realized that despite Huang Tu’s obvious abilities in the past, he was just the Lord of the human world. Hence, he should now know how to form a starry array. Furthermore, if he knew how to do it, he would certainly have taught Gu Xijiu. So what was the memory in Di Fuyi’s mind?
“Ah! Help!” Someone could be heard calling for help from afar.
Gu Xijiu was stunned by the voice. It seemed to come from the direction where the bats had gone!
She pulled Di Fuyi along as she said, “Let’s go and have a look.” Before Di Fuyi could even reply to her, she had teleported with him to the direction of the voice she had heard. Because of her mastery over her teleportation technique, she could estimate locations very precisely. Soon, she found herself on a trigram-shaped platform with 18 pillars surrounding the area. There was a person tied to each pillar! To be more accurate, there were skeletons tied to each pillar as the people who were there had been killed by the Bloody Bats that swarmed over. Their fleshes were clearly eaten away.
Gu Xijiu managed to take a glimpse of the bats in the area and noticed that their skin had turned from black to bright red after they entered this part of the cave. Although the place was too dark for Gu Xijiu to see every detail, she noticed that the bats had turned their attention to something above them. Hence, she simply followed them up and found that there was a hidden passage above them, which led to the outside.
There was a jungle outside, and they could hear the roaring of beasts that seemed to be charging at one another. It seemed that this place was the origin of the Bloody Bats. The starry array was the culprit!
Gu Xijiu clenched her fists in indignation.
