Gu Xijiu was swift and agile; she almost cured the wound in just a blink of an eye! She smiled as she heaved a sigh of relief. “I was just careless. No worries, I’m fine.”
Tian Jiyue gazed at her curvy eyelashes and her reddish lips. He realized that it seemed to have been no different from usual. However, her face was slightly pale; perhaps it was because of the pain from the wound earlier.
He sighed; the weapons from the compartment were supposed to shoot outward if it wereoperated accordingly. It could attack dozens of people at once like a hedgehog if they ever tried to attack the cabin!
It was a black iron blade, and the blade was coated with poison. Hence, it must be excruciating for her.Tian Jiyue might not feel bad for her if she screamed out of pain. However, the fact that she pretended to be strong has caused him a heartache now.
“Just shout if it’s painful, I will not laugh at you.” Tian Jiyue sighed and continued, “You do not have to hold it.”
This girl was so tough! Not sure if it was because of the mass bleeding or insecurity, but Gu Xijiu’s eyelashes were flickering. She smiled instead of shouted out in pain. “It is all right, just a small injury, it does not hurt at all.” It was nothing compared to the heartbreaking experience she just endured. Apparently, the pain on her wrist helped her to focus better.
The drugs she had with her nowadays were extremely magical because the bleeding stopped almost immediately after she applied the medicine. Besides that, it was only her flesh that was wounded which was not as severe as cutting an artery. It might have seemed dangerous, but it was just a minor injury.
She lightly flicked her wrists as she took a breath, and then continued experimenting with the mechanisms. Tian Jiyue was nervously watching from beside her because he was afraid that she might get hurt again.
This time, Gu Xijiu paid very attention,and she managed to master the essentials of the mechanisms without hurting herself again. While operating the mechanisms, Gu Xijiu also chatted with Tian Jiyue and did not forget to ask him about the principles and essentials regarding its mechanical settings.
Tian Jiyue was kind enough to answer every question she asked. As long as the problems were related to the mechanism, he could explain excellently as though he has swallowed the user manual.
Gu Xijiu finished asking all the possible questions she had. She could finally confirm that Tian Jiyuemade it for her. She had a bitter smile and wondered if she was trying to prove something to herself.
She knew that she should rationally give up on Di Fuyi, yet, she could not help her subconscious urge of trying to prove something even though every attempt had led her to disappointment. When the number of disappointment got greater, she somehow grew immune.
As she instructed Gui Quan to take Di Fuyi for a stroll, she thought he would have left instantly based on his pride. However, it was beyond her expectation that he would proceed with the minion to visit her yard instead.
He was a person seemingly undisciplined yet actually thoughtful and always well strategized. A careless mistake would become a chance to be tricked.
When she was his ally, she was always amazed by the way he deceivedothers, and she was often glad for not being his enemy. However… What was he going to do in her mansion? What was his main objective?
Di Fuyi seemed to be in great spirits today. He wandered around the mansion without missing a single corner with the guidance of Gui Quan. When he was tired of walking, he would always ready himself a futon and had a chat with Gui Quan while taking a break.
However, Gui Quan was secretly assigned by Luo Zhanyu to keep an eye on Di Fuyi to prevent him from playing any tricks. Therefore, Gui Quan paid very close attention at all times and maintained his supervision at every movement with his eyes widely opened.
