Is This A Custom From Heaven?

Di Fuyi flicked her hand away and said nonchalantly, “I do not care what you say or think.”
Chun Cao was shocked by his sudden resentment. Di Fuyi adjusted his robes gently before giving her another look in the eye. “A girl should not get too close to her good friend’s man,” he warned.
Chun Cao was taken by surprise. Was this a custom from heaven? Nonetheless, she nodded firmly. “Hmm, all right.”
Di Fuyi did not say anything further. Instead, he looked at her, as if trying to tell her to go away. His intense gaze terrified Chun Cao. She touched her nose out of awkwardness and left. She was going for Gu Xijiu this time.
The man was good at everything except socializing. He could not join the group, as he was obviously not one of them. Given his attitude, the people were not sure if the man would take advantage of Brother Stone.
They wanted to have a chat with Di Fuyi, but the idea faded when they saw Chun Cao’s unfortunate rejection. They dared not take another step closer.
Di Fuyi closed his eyes again to take another quick rest. He started to meditate. After a long day, his spiritual power was reduced by a great amount. He thought that in a short, quiet rest, he would be able to feel his power growing back. However, it was not the case. Every decrease in his level of spiritual power seemed irreversible.
His spiritual power was at a new low with no sign of recovery. Earlier, he wanted to open the box in his storage bag to take some dishes out for the group, but he only managed to open a small opening. He could not take the box, so he could only reach out for the small bag that carried the fruits. He could use his spiritual power to open the storage bag forcibly, but he did not want to spend his remaining spiritual power on this unnecessary act.
It was already in the evening. The hill was windy with a clear sky. The air was filled with the refreshing scent of the greens around them. The surroundings were completely different from the valley that was constantly shielded under a dark, grey layer of haze, but there was one thing in common, there was no spiritual power in the air at all.
Di Fuyi had been to the underworld, which was said to have the worst condition out of all existing worlds. It was known to be a place with a scarce amount of spiritual power. As long as he meditated with special techniques, he could still source a large supply of spiritual power from the surroundings to fill in the gaps in his body.
However, there was no spiritual power at all in his current location. Logically speaking, all the lives here, including the plants, had a spirit. As long as there were spirits, there would be spiritual power. This was a matter of fact that even God could not alter.
In the valley, there was an explanation for the lack of spiritual power. But why would the outside world be just the same? Was there any special channel to absorb the spiritual power of this particular world? Was there any problem with his meditation?
He took at the can leader who was sitting on a rock and trying to meditate as well. The way he did it was a little different from him. He pointed a finger at the sky, and another to the earth. He did not sit with his legs crossed; instead, he sat with his feet facing each other.
After a short while, his fingers started to tremble. Soon, he opened his eyes, only to be surprised by Di Fuyi’s presence. Di Fuyi was staring at him from the top of another rock, not too far away.
“Mr. Di,” he greeted while trying to stand up.
“Have you extracted any spiritual power?” Di Fuyi asked frankly.
The clan leader hesitated a little and shook his head in disappointment. “There is no spiritual power here.” His face was grave as he told Di Fuyi. “Something is not right.”
“There used to be spiritual power here?”
“Yes, I did take a short rest here on the hill back in the days. There used to be an abundance of spiritual power, unlike now. Did the red fog absorb all of the spiritual power here because the place is too close to the forbidden land?” The clan leader tried to find the best explanation.
