She Wanted To Have A Closer Look

At first sight, the appearance of the massive being very much resembled a boar, but without a head. It appeared as though its four legs acted like pillars to support its round and giant body. The color of its body was entirely red like the fog. It was a strange yet terrifying sight.
Gu Xijiu took a step back to cover Di Fuyi behind her. Tightly, she held the sword in her hand. As the red fog was very potent, Gu Xijiu naturally assumed that this creature possessed great powers. As soon as it was formed, strong gusts of wind took over the land like a storm.
Gu Xijiu felt that it looked somewhat familiar, but could not recall the encounter.
“It is Chaos,” Di Fuyi communicated with Gu Xijiu via directed audio.
Gu Xijiu’s jaw dropped. “Is it one of the four ancient ferocious beasts?”
“This is not its original body. It is merely an illusion, formed from the power of its soul. Don’t worry. I will take it down and make the poisonous barrier disappear.”
Gu Xijiu was relieved.With her memory loss, she had literally no knowledge about the beast. She only knew about the Phantom Beasts and some other things about animals, which she acquired from the clan leader. The rest remained unknown.
Her instinct told her that the beast was an exceptionally dangerous one. “Will it behave like the Phantom Beasts and transform into its original form?” Gu Xijiu was concerned.
“Hard to tell,” Di Fuyi only answered briefly.
The tune of the lute became more complicated. Therefore, Gu Xijiu did not want to interrupt him. She continued to stand in between Di Fuyi and the creature with a sword in her hand. He was busy playing the lute, so he would not be able to defend himself if the beast were to attack him.Surely, she would not be able to fight it, either. But at least she could teleport with him to somewhere safe.
The red fog had been swirling vigorously to complete the illusion created by Chaos. As soon as it was formed, it seemed very violent and agitated, as if it were about to destroy everything in its way. With every step it took, the ground would tremor.
Di Fuyi’s lute was able to calm it down. Along with the tune, it started moving its body in gentle sways. The more complicated the tune, the calmer it seemed. In fact, the swirling of the red fog around it was gradually reduced, too.
Gu Xijiu did not know what was actually happening, but she could tell that it was a good sign. If everything went smoothly, they would be able to break through the red fog wizardry barrier within an hour.
Having some sense of relief, Gu Xijiu slowly kept her sword. In a blur, she caught something shimmering on its feet, as attractive as a gem.
‘What was that?’ Driven by her curiosity, Gu Xijiu stepped forward to have a closer look.
That was when everything changed. Chaos seemed to detect something and stopped following the rhythm of the tune. Then, a pair of bloody red wings appeared on its smooth, shiny back. It stretched its wings out, causing a storm. The tip of its wing continued to move and cause more troubles.
“Beware!” Gu Xijiu heard Di Fuyi shouting out loud. Soon, she was dragged to the back by Di Fuyi.
The bloody red fog came rolling at both of them. Gu Xijiu was shocked, but fortunately, her agility remained. Swiftly, she grabbed Di Fuyi’s arm and teleported. The teleportation took them more than ten feet away from the incoming danger.
