Chapter 2635 – Meet Again (3)
It certainly seemed as though he saw her but then moved away. But did he really see her? Gu Xijiu had this question in her heart. Fortunately, with her current abilities, she did not need to be too concerned. If he did pursue her, she was sure that she could fight or flee.
Nonetheless, this person’s abilities were remarkable, to say the least. He could grow a herb at will. Was he the assigned doctor for the soldiers here? And, who was the person they wanted to save with this herb? These questions went around Gu Xijiu’s mind as she followed them to learn more.
After several successive turns around the place, and a vault-like cabin appeared in front of them. Again, the hatch could only be opened from scanning their pupils. After Lan Yue opened the door, he went in together with Duan Muyan. Understanding the mechanism of the door, Gu Xijiu stood closely behind them and quickly joined them once the door was open.
When she saw the person who was lying on the bed, her heart stopped. A female dressed in a light gray military uniform with her hair was tied into a ponytail laid across the bed. Her chest was wounded, and her face was ashen. She seemed to be seriously injured.
Although this person looked different from before, Gu Xijiu could recognize her at a glance. It was Lan Waihu! She was Gu Xijiu’s companion and best friend back in the day when she was in Tianju Hall. She was also Yan Chen’s wife. When she married Yan Chen, Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi hosted their wedding.
Curiously, Gu Xijiu wondered why she was not holding the fort with Yan Chen in Tianju Hall. Why was she lying here? And, what made her dress in a military uniform? Even though she was a member of the Blue Fox family, and also a national master, she truly loved Yan Chen, and the two of them were inseparable. Even if she learned that she was a descendant of the Blue Fox Planet, she would not side with these aliens to take control of the Starry Crescent Land, right!? What was wrong with her, anyway? How did she get into such a critical condition?
As the two men walked in, Duan Muyan went straight to the bed and hung the medicine in his hand over Lan Waihu’s wound. Upon squeezing the herb, some light brown liquid dripped down and fell on her injured chest.
In just a brief moment, Lan Waihu’s eyelashes trembled, and she could open her eyes. Even though she could see her surroundings, she did not speak. In fact, it looked as though she had no emotions.
“Have you given up?” Duan Muyan finally spoke. His voice was deep, magnetic, and pleasant to the ear.
Lan Waihu closed her eyes again upon hearing what he had to say.
In response, Duan Muyan smirked and exclaimed, “Stupid!”
Lan Yue interrupted them and asked, “Has she recovered?”
“It won’t be so fast! Although this medicine is effective to the people of the Blue Fox family, her injury is a spiritual injury. It will take at least another two doses of medicine to heal her.”
Gu Xijiu’s eyes fell on Lan Waihu’s face while the conversation went on. Although her facial features made her look like Lan Waihu, her temperament seemed to have changed. She used to be lively and cheerful. But now, she was somewhat depressed and indifferent to her surroundings. There was also a fiery-red cinnabar stone in between her eyebrows.
“Was this her?” Gu Xijiu seemed to ask herself this question in her heart. Gu Xijiu approached her body to take a closer look at her wound. Since her military dress was unbuttoned, Gu Xijiu could tell that her injury was around the upper part of her chest. Gu Xijiu was stunned by the sight of the wound as she recognized it straight away. This injury was caused by a Fiery Palm attack.
To the best of Gu Xijiu’s knowledge, the only person who knew how to use the Fiery Palm attack in Starry Crescent Land was Yan Chen. But Yan Chen loved Lan Waihu so profoundly, so how could he hurt her so badly? Was it possible that the Lan Waihu in front of her was merely an imposter? Had she been cloned?
After the two gentlemen chatted briefly, Duan Muyan left the room. Lan Yue had told him the concerns that he had, as well as the areas in which he wanted Duan Muyan to pay more attention. Gu Xijiu naturally followed the man out since there was nothing she could do for Lan Waihu.
When she left, she looked back and saw Lan Waihu lying motionless on the bed. However, there seemed to be tears rolling down the corners of her eyes.
