Gu Xijiu’s first action was to teleport to the cell where the children were imprisoned. The door was tightly closed, and the half-men there had not found that the children had escaped; they still worked in an orderly manner.
As for the half-men that had been killed by Gu Xijiu, she had also thoroughly cleaned away their corpses. Unless someone were looking for those half-men that had died, their deaths would not be exposed for a while.
She turned around and wanted to find the place where the people behind the scenes lived. It was strange to say that she secretly caught several half-men and interrogated them, but they did not even know where their masters lived. It was noted that only the guards who were close to the master would know.
After exploring the place, Gu Xijiu finally knew how these passages worked. These were the branches of the big tree to transport nourishment! The number of passages was equivalent to the number of branches in this big tree. It was even more complicated than a spider web.
More importantly, the roads here were not arranged according to an array, so even if Gu Xijiu was good at recognizing the path, she would easily get lost.
Theoretically, the person behind the scene should live at the very top of the thickest trunk. However, Gu Xijiu had been running along the most spacious passage and ignoring the branches. In the end, it was a green wall, and she did not see any palace. Was she mistaken?
Where did this pervert behind the scenes live? She did not give up and continued to search on both sides of the passage, trying to see if there was a secret door or whatnot.
She was an expert in cracking mechanisms, so if there were an unknown mechanism, she would be able to spot it. However, after she searched for a long while, she still did not find any secret door.
It seemed that the direction she was looking for was wrong! Gu Xijiu sighed. When she was about to turn back and changed the path, there was some movement at the end of the corner.
She was shocked and quickly made herself invisible. After a while, one person appeared at the end of the road. Gu Xijiu’s heart pumped faster! It was the purple-clothed young man! He was also the eldest senior of Si Qing and the gang. The young man was still holding his umbrella. When he walked over slowly, it was very pleasing to see as if an animated landscape picture.
Gu Xijiu had been immune to handsome guys in recent years. Regardless of how cute the guys were, she only treated them as an image. She would enjoy watching them, but they would not make her have the slightest temptation.
Nonetheless, when she saw this young man, her heart was shaken a little bit, and she even had an inexplicable feeling of sorrow and grief, so she looked at him one more time.
As she was invisible, when the young man passed by, she was at no more than half a meter away from him. They were very near to each other to the extent where Gu Xijiu could smell the fragrance of his body. This fragrance made her slightly breathless.
Mr. Fuyi… This name was elegant! Gu Xijiu unconsciously recalled the poem she had carved in the crystal palace on Earth: One is willing to walk away without being obsessed with the fame he deserves.
This young man was really matched with this name. She forgot to ask Si Qing what was the name of this eldest senior. Perhaps there were these two words in the name. Gu Xijiu guessed countless questions in her heart.
Meanwhile, Mr. Fuyi went all the way to the end of the passage, then bent his fingers to knock on the wall. He knocked in a sequence as if he was tapping out a piece of music.
Gu Xijiu’s heart moved as she followed him over. After a while, the wall actually lit up with a green halo. The green halo slightly expanded until a door slowly appeared and opened.
