Chapter 2504 – Ignore Him
Before Gu Xijiu could say anything, a sudden loud noise distracted her. Gu Xijiu listened carefully and realized that the sound was coming from the eastern part of the wizardry barrier. Was Yun Yanli finally here?
As soon as she thought of Yun Yanli, the directed audio spell at her waist suddenly flickered in bright lights. She picked up the call and recognized Guardian Jin’s voice from another end. “Miss Gu, there are some movements outside. Yun Yanli will be here anytime now. He must be attacking the exterior of the wizardry barrier.”
Gu Xijiu let out a scornful smile. Yun Yanli had finally thought it out, but it was all too late. With the wizardry barrier in place, there was no way he could make his way into the valley. He could only stay on the outside of the barrier and fight a pointless siege.
Within the wizardry barrier, the people could live self-contained lives. Aside from the mediocre food, there was nothing else to complain about. There was an abundant supply of spiritual stones as in Gu Xijiu’s storage space, so the villagers could continue to practice their Kung Fu for at least another five to six years.
“Ignore him. He will never make it through the barrier,” she said nonchalantly.
Guardian Jin was unaware of how powerful the wizardry barrier of Toa Tie actually was, so he was still worried. In a determined effort, he decided to guard the perimeters along with Guardian Hua.
Their hearts skipped a beat whenever the wizardry barrier moved in a wave-like motion. They knew that Yun Yanli was a man of great power and that he also had many talented men working in his troops. Could this thin wizardry barrier keep him and his men away?
Guardian Hua was still troubled about the potential intrusion, so he directed another audio to Gu Xijiu. “Miss Gu, there seems to be a violent attack from the outside. Would you like to come over and have a look?”
Without Di Fuyi, Gu Xijiu had automatically become their pillar of hope. If the wizardry barrier was going to collapse, they should prepare themselves for a fight. Although Gu Xijiu was not worried about the strength of the wizardry barrier, she still agreed to go with the guardians just to make them feel more at ease.
She carried Di Fuyi’s statue into the tent and placed him carefully on the bed. Conveniently, she put the remaining Purple Cloud Mushroom pills in his firm clasp. “Fuyi, I am going out to have a look and will be back in no time.”
Di Fuyi did not answer, as usual.
She lowered her body and planted a soft kiss on the lips of the statue before teleporting away. With a few quick moves, she was already at the edge of the wizardry barrier and saw the guardians strolling around in a frenzied hurry. The wizardry barrier would sometimes be deformed by the strong external force, resulting in ripples that spread across the entire layer.
Also, the barrier was entirely soundproof, so she could not tell how many people were actually present on the outside. They could only see that each attack would often result in a thunderous blow.
It was obvious that the people on the outside were determined to fight their way into the barrier and would change different spots to attack. The wizardry barrier, however, was as solid as a great iron armor. They did not damage the barrier at all, no matter how hard he tried.
After taking a walk around the barrier, Gu Xijiu was even more relieved. She reassured the guardians that everything was good and that they should head back for their practice instead, as there was really nothing to be worried about. However, both of them remained unconvinced. They offered to stay for a day and would only go back to the village when the sky was dark.
Gu Xijiu could not talk them out of their stubbornness, so she let them be. Once again, she returned to her tent.
Di Fuyi’s statue was still there. Habitually, she started talking with him, “Fuyi, Yun Yanli is here. Right now, he is attacking the wizardry barrier on a violent rampage. When do you think he will be aware of the overwhelming odds against him? I…”
She suddenly stopped talking as soon as she turned to face him. Her blank eyes were locked on his hands. The Purple Cloud Mushrooms were gone! His hands were intertwined in a clasping manner, so Gu Xijiu was able to place the Purple Cloud Mushrooms on his palm. However, all of them were now gone!
