Chapter 2475 – Rearranging The Starry Array (4)
Without waiting for a response from Gu Xijiu, it began transferring the spiritual power that it had absorbed from Di Fuyi. The sudden absorption of spiritual power was overbearing for the Firmament Stone, and it was eager to channel some of it away. While the spiritual power was being transferred, Gu Xijiu felt as though her veins were swelling up all around her body. It was a truly painful experience.
The sheer discomfort that Gu Xijiu experienced from absorbing the excess spiritual power from the Firmament Stone made Gu Xijiu wonder how much pain Di Fuyi had been enduring. She decided to check on him and found that he was sitting like a Buddha in an attempt to meditate. She was a little relieved by the sight.
In that brief moment, the Firmament Stone managed to transfer a significant amount of spiritual power to Gu Xijiu; in fact, she was worried that she would be able to experience a breakthrough in her power. Her original spiritual power was at level 9.2. However, it became apparent to her that she was about to reach level 9.9! Once she passed the level of 9.9, she would reach level 10 and experience a catastrophe that would possibly allow her to ascend to heaven. However, now was definitely not the right time for her to ascend. It would certainly attract Yun Yanli’s attention, and he would be here in no time.
Thinking on her feet, Gu Xijiu immediately channeled the power she was receiving towards moving the spiritual crystal that she had been working tirelessly to rearrange. Due to the improvement in her spiritual power, she managed to move the crystal a little faster than before. Also, she managed to reduce the level of spiritual power in her body.
Soon, the Firmament Stone had transmitted all the spiritual power it had absorbed from Di Fuyi into her body. It felt a bit tired, but since it now had the capacity to help Di Fuyi again, it quickly attached itself to his wrist and continued to absorb his spiritual power. It suddenly felt as though it was a device that could transfer spiritual power from one being to another.
Although the procedure was tiring, the Firmament Stone had no other options. It continued to push itself, and without knowing, an hour had passed. In that time, Gu Xijiu finally managed to move the two spiritual crystal to their designated locations. The very moment that it happened, the cold wind that had been flowing in between the crystals suddenly disappeared. Instead, it was replaced by a faint, lukewarm wind that whirled in between the crystals as if it was comforting the suffering wraiths.
The calm that replaced the stormy winds from before gave Gu Xijiu the assurance she needed that she was successful. There was no need for her to disturb Di Fuyi to confirm it. As usual, Gu Xijiu achieved the impossible by performing a task that only a Golden Immortal could do.
Triumphantly, she cheered, “Success! How can I…” Upon looking at Di Fuyi, she stopped before she finished the sentence.
Di Fuyi was still sitting there quietly; he was as still as a mountain, which made him look just like a statue. Gu Xijiu’s heart suddenly sank from the jubilant rushed that she had moments ago. She rushed over and put her hand on his shoulder. “Fuyi…”
Upon touching him, she realized that his body was cold and hard. It felt nothing like touching human skin. In fact, it almost felt as though she was touching a piece of jade. Did he become a statue? Startled by this discovery, she quickly checked his entire body and realized that he had become a jade statue! The details on the status were extremely realistic; even his eyelashes were clearly defined. But how could he become a jade statue? Did Di Fuyi leave a jade statue here before he left? It was impossible!
Gu Xijiu was confident that he would not leave her behind here. But if that were the case, was this statue really Di Fuyi?
