Chapter 2473 – Rearranging The Starry Array (2)
Di Fuyi held her little hand that was clenched and said, “Let’s go back inside first.”
“Okay!” Gu Xijiu teleported back inside with Di Fuyi. The two stood in front of the starry array again to try to figure it out. Upon contemplation, Gu Xijiu said, “Let’s destroy this starry array! We must stop all the trouble it is causing!”
When she was just about to perform a spell, Di Fuyi quickly grabbed her hand. “Hold on!”
“This array also supports the wizardry barrier outside the place. The Bloody Rain is raging outside right now. If we destroy it, the people of this city will be sacrificed.”
Gu Xijiu was stunned by his remark, and sweat started pouring all over her forehead. She had completely forgotten about the people in the city. She rubbed her eyebrows in disappointment and wondered what had happened to her recently. She was not as sharp as she used to be in the past.
As she could not destroy it, for the time being, she gazed at the starry array trying to figure out her next move. She was somewhat unhappy by the sight and asked, “Are we going to let the bats continue to hurt the people and animals here?”
Di Fuyi was silent for a moment. He had been devising a plan the whole time. “I can try to rearrange the starry array; perhaps, I can support the wizardry barrier while and also stop the bats from going out of control.”
Gu Xijiu’s eyes were gleaming with inspiration. She was surprised that Di Fuyi was so knowledgable. “Did the Divine Lord teach you this?”
Di Fuyi replied, “No. I never had a teacher in this field.”
Gu Xijiu was rendered speechless by his reply.
Di Fuyi began to wander around the starry array with his fingers pointing around the place as if he was calculating something. As Gu Xijiu did not know what he was up to, she merely followed him and kept quiet so as not to distract him. Instead, she fended off any wraiths that came near to him.
When she came close to the base of the array, Gu Xijiu realized that the spiritual crystal seemed to be connected to the ground. She tried to push one of the crystals, but it would not move. She quickly shared this finding with Di Fuyi. “I am afraid that the array cannot be rearranged.”
Di Fuyi seemed to shake his head slightly. “If you try to move it with force, it cannot be moved. However, with the right amount of force and technique, it should work.” Apparently, he had already mastered the force and technique as he flew up to the moon-like platform and started to work.
Like playing a game of chess, he lifted his sleeves and waved them in a specific direction on a spiritual crystal. In an instant, the spiritual crystal and the base below it moved silently. Everything happened very swiftly and gracefully. It was a dazzling sight.
Standing near to Di Fuyi, Gu Xijiu somehow felt a sense of familiarity with the situation. It was almost as if she had seen him doing the same thing in his past life. Did it really happen in the past? Perhaps, Huang Tu had set up a starry array before, which left some residual memories in her mind.
Being a master of array formations, Gu Xijiu could easily remember any arrays that she encountered before. However, she seemed a little dizzy with the one that Di Fuyi was rearranging now. The more she looked at it, the dizzier she got!
She decided to take a few steps back and watch him on the high platform. Even though they were not very far apart, Gu Xijiu suddenly felt as though there was a gap between them. Perhaps, it was not about the actual distance between them, but she somehow felt that no one could stand side by side with Di Fuyi. He was such a remarkable being with knowledge and abilities that were unparalleled. She could only watch him in awe. She suspected that she had been doing so for many years in their past life.
Even though it was good to be with someone so worldly, Gu Xijiu did not have a very good feeling about the situation. Nevertheless, now was not the right time to think about it. She quickly shook her head and started to calculate the time they had spent in the cave. It had been more than four hours! Does that mean the bottled up spiritual power inside Di Fuyi’s body had somehow passed?
As she pondered on the situation, she noticed that Di Fuyi suddenly lost his balance and almost swayed off the high platform! She was shocked and quickly teleported over and catch him, but the moment she held his arm, her heart sank! The changes in his body had started taking effect. His arms were hot, and his body was hot too. His face was faintly red, but sweat could be seen all over his forehead.
