Chapter 2498 – Making A Fool Of Each Other (2)
Panicked, Kun Xueyi quickly got up and apologized. “Please don’t! Miss Gu, please excuse my ignorance. I take back my words.” Kun Xueyi was no longer standing in a position of ease. “Miss Gu, how long can you keep him trapped in the array?”
Gu Xijiu made a guess. “Perhaps a day.”
Kun Xueyi was delighted by the response. “Should we take this opportunity to escape?”
“I have to stay behind to support the array. Otherwise, the formation cannot even keep him trapped for an hour.” Gu Xijiu crushed his hope for an escape. However, what made him curious was why they even wait for Yun Yanli to arrive in the first place.
Kun Xueyi assessed the situation and made a guess, “Did you ask Guardians Jin and Hua to send the Devil King back while we keep Yun Yanli here?”
“Yes, we are staying behind to buy them time. It will be enough if we keep Yun Yanli here for a day.”
“Where are they now?” Kun Xueyi seemed relieved.
Hesitantly, Gu Xijiu answered, “They should be at Fengping City by now. We have to do our best and keep Yun Yanli here. As you know, Yun Yanli is the only man who can actually stop them.”
“Great! We shall keep him here as long as we can!”
Both of them were communicating privately via their directed audio spells. Under normal circumstances, no one could hear what they said. However, Yun Yanli was not an ordinary man. His spiritual power had surpassed theirs, and overhearing directed audio messages was nothing for him.
After a moment of deep, reflective thought, he smiled as he swept his eyes across the array formation. He suspected that as long as he stayed still, the array formation would not do him any harm. It would probably be difficult for him to move further into the center of the array, but exiting the formation should not be a challenge.
He laughed out loud as he said, “Xijiu, although you have done me wrong, I am still reluctant to make things difficult for you. If you insist on keeping the fish, fine, I shall let both of you go this time.’
He then turned and started rushing out of the array. However, what he did not expect was that leaving the array formation was just as difficult as coming in. He took one step in the opposite direction and was immediately trapped into another illusion. His parents appeared right before his eyes again. Luckily, he was prepared this time. He smacked his father and was finally able to break free from the illusion.
Gu Xijiu seemed to have noticed that he had figured out the way to escape the illusions. She quickly tried to distract him, “Yun Yanli, we are right here! Come for us if you dare!” Swiftly, she leaped and teleported right in front of Yun Yanli to block his path.
Yun Yanli locked his gaze on her face. He seemed to be conflicted for a moment. “Very well then, Gu Xijiu. You will have to come with me!” He said with a smile.
Gu Xijiu was not in the mood for a fight. Instead, she took a few steps back and slowly approached the array formation. Yun Yanli was eager to catch her but still could not gather the courage to make any deadly moves.
Her spiritual power was no match to his, but her quick wits were nothing short of his tactical moves. She moved around constantly to make things difficult for him. Yun Yanli knew that he had to be ruthless if he really wanted to catch her.
All of a sudden, Gu Xijiu suddenly tripped and fell into the array formation herself. Yun Yanli smiled evilly. He already knew that she was going to play weak to lure him into the array formation. It seemed that he had already figured out her intention. Pretentiously, he leaped towards the array formation but stopped abruptly before the entrance.
