How Could That Be Possible? I Don’t Believe It!

His gaze was cold, and Gu Xijiu felt a chill deep inside her heart. She wanted to say something, but the words were stuck in her throat after she saw his glare.
Di Fuyi did not speak but grabbed Gu Xijiu’s hand right away. Gu Xijiu’s heart skipped a beat. Although they have been married for eight years and had experienced countless intimate moments, her heart still raced uncontrollably when he grabbed her hand.
“I didn’t…” Gu Xijiu wanted to say, ‘I didn’t intend to do that’. However, she did not manage to say it because Di Fuyi’s spiritual power had already been absorbed into her body.
A moment later, he let go of her hand and moved his gaze back to Hua Wuyan. “None of your spiritual power is inside her body!”
Hua Wuyan was startled. All the absorbed spiritual power would usually be stored in the body of the individual. It would be stored in the body for at least half a day.
However, Hua Wuyan and Gu Xijiu shook each other’s hands only about 15 minutes ago. Therefore, it was impossible that the spiritual power was not stored in Gu Xijiu’s body if she absorbed Hua Wuyan’s spiritual power. Everyone understood this theory because they were all the experts in martial arts.
“Impossible! She just absorbed my…”
Di Fuyi casually added, “Are you sure the reduction of your spiritual power did not happen during the ritual ceremony earlier? I think it is very common for you to lose quite an amount of spiritual power after performing such a challenging ritual.”
Long Siye and the rest also nodded. Indeed, it consumed at least 1/3 of their spiritual power.
“How could that be possible? I don’t believe it!” Hua Wuyan shook her head unbelievably.
Di Fuyi’s gaze turned icy. “So you don’t even trust me anymore?”
“I’m… No… I’m just…”
Di Fuyi casually added, “Qian Yueran, come and check on her so that Overlord Long can settle this matter!”
Qian Yueran walked over and placed his fingers on Gu Xijiu’s pulse. A moment later, he shook his head as he looked at Hua Wuyan. “Indeed, I can’t trace any of your spiritual power in her body. Wuyan, I guess it was just an illusion because you’re exhausted.”
Hua Wuyan was speechless even though her mouth was opened. Qian Yueran was quite close to her; hence, he would never lie to her.
“Overlord Hua, since you made quite a great contribution to the salvation ceremony, I’ll let this incident slide. However, I’m afraid I can’t grant you any mercy if this ever happens again!” Hua Wuyan was shocked to the extent she said nothing as she watched Di Fuyi leave with Gu Xijiu.
Di Fuyi left four bottles of pills behind. It was eighth-grade pills which were known as the most premium medicine to restore spiritual energy. Each of the heaven’s gift disciples got one, and it was the reward given by The Lord since they were accommodating during the salvation ceremony.
On the riverbank beside Hu City, Gu Xijiu was sitting on a big rock while Di Fuyi was standing beside her watching the river as though he was thinking of something.
Gu Xijiu did not expect him to bring her here. “Why here?”
Di Fuyi glimpsed at her. “I thought you wanted to meet me here yesterday?”
He half-jokingly asked, “So, did you jump into the river last night? I’m surprised you managed to learn this strategy. First, you cry, followed by throwing a tantrum, and then attempting to commit suicide…”
Gu Xijiu wanted to kick him. “Are you saying I’m a shrew?”
Di Fuyi sighed. “I feel you’re behaving like an ordinary women nowadays. Anyway, what was going on just now?”
Gu Xijiu paused and decided to tell him the truth. Thus, she told him every single detail. “I have no idea how this happened because I’ve never encountered the same scenario before.”
