A Day Like This Every Year (3)

Without a level nine spiritual power, how could the mermaid kidnap Lan Waihu with the Ground Drilling technique?
“Aqua Drilling”, said Di Fuyi.
The three of them immediately looked at him.
Di Fuyi added, “The mermaids are very good at Aqua Drilling. As long as there’s water underground, they can escape with anyone.”
Yan Chen and Lan Yue looked at each other. There must be water underground; however, they could not follow the mermaid because they never learned Aqua Drilling.
Gu Xijiu paused and realized that she knew the Aqua Drilling technique. After all, she had Lan Jingke’s memories in her head. However, the water flow underground was very complicated with multiple branches; hence, she could not find Little Fox’s aura nor the mermaid’s even though she could go underground.
Lu Wu could find their aura, but it could not swim; hence, it would probably die from suffocation if it went underground! Perhaps, she could ask Lan Yaoguang to help? After all, he knew the most about the mermaids. Besides that, he could also help to check if any mermaids traveled to land recently.
Lately, Lan Yaoguang was quite close to Gu Xijiu; he swung by her residence twice a month. Regardless of whether Gu Xijiu acknowledged him as her younger brother or not, he insisted on addressing her as hissister.
One should never hurt someone with good intention. Thus, Gu Xijiu could not show Lan Yaoguang with her anger even though she did not want to be Lan Jingke. Moreover, she silently acknowledged him as her brother. In fact, Lan Yaoguang had given her a paging shell so that it was easier for them to keep in touch.
Suddenly, Di Fuyi grabbed Gu Xijiu’s hand just when she was about to take out the paging shell. “Let’s find Little Fox using Aqua Drilling!”
Di Fuyi was always fast when he had to take action. Before Gu Xijiu could respond to him, she had a blackout! When she could open her eyes to have a clearer view, she already heard the sound of water flowing, and she saw a big undercurrent in front of her.
Gu Xijiu was speechless. She subconsciously initiated the Aqua Drilling technique and then withdrew her hand. She did not want to have any physical contact with him anymore. She needed to stay calm.
Gu Xijiu’s priority was to find Little Fox. “What now?”
Di Fuyi took out a wizardry shell and blew once. Instantly, the water around them began to gush to the east.
“There!” Di Fuyi put his wizardry shell away and stretched his hand toward Gu Xijiu. “Let me bring you.”
“It’s fine, I’m good.” Gu Xijiu turned around and moved toward the water’s direction.
She was quite good at Aqua Drilling. Her body was like an apparition that disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Di Fuyi remained silent for a few seconds as he looked at his empty hand. He then shook his head and immediately rushed toward that direction.
After traveling for seven to eight miles, he finally saw Gu Xijiu waiting for him ahead. He rushed over and realized there were four to five branches further ahead.
No wonder she was willing to wait for him.
She quietly waited there for him to show her their next direction when he came over.
She really treated him like a normal friend now. In fact, it did not even seem to be a normal friend but rather an acquaintance. She was very cold but courteous.
That was what he wanted, and he was the one who caused all this mess.
He smiled and then took out his wizardry shell again. This time, he explained to her, “When you blow this shell with water spiritual power, it can sense whether any mermaid passed by the water here. Nah, try it yourself.” He passed the shell to her.
Gu Xijiu refused to take it. “Just do it.” He had blown on the shell with his saliva on it earlier; hence, she did not want to kiss him indirectly.
