Perhaps, this man had seen Di Fuyi before. After all, Di Fuyi was probably a well-known person in heaven. It was possible that the two gentlemen could be friends.
At that point in time, Gu Xijiu felt like she really needed a friend.After all, the shared path with Di Fuyi tended to be a little lonely sometimes. If they could have a friend from heaven join the adventure, it would be a wonderful journey.
The man in front of Gu Xijiu right now had very good control of his sword. Every strike had power in it, and every move was swift. A series of attacks bombarded the Chinese Alligator in a continuous flurry, showcasing a dazzling display of powerful moves.
After a brief moment, Gu Xijiu could finally confirm that he was a man from heaven. The way he carried his sword was very familiar to Gu Xijiu.Could they be from the same association? Was the man her senior or junior apprentice?
Gu Xijiu was not eager to get herself involved in the fight. After all, it was all her speculation. She had to be more cautious, in case the man was actually an enemy of hers.
Nonetheless, after observing the battle for some time, Gu Xijiu quickly realized that the man did not know how to take down the beast. He was merely concentrating his energy on trying to slash its skin open. Luckily for him, his slashes seem to impact the beast.However, this Chinese Alligator was quite agile. Most of the time, it was able to avoid the man’s attacks. Also, its skin was thick enough to protect itself despite the bleeding. It was going to be an uphill battle for the man if he continued to fight in this way.
After almost an hour, Gu Xijiu noticed that he only managed to leave four scars on the beast’s body. The amount of blood from each wound was plentiful, enough to fill an entire basin. However, the blood loss was nothing once compared to its gigantic body. Instead of being wounded, the beast was triggered to a crazier extent. Its eyes were flashing with even brighter beams of red light.
She finally understood why a single hunt for Chinese Alligator would usually take a group of 20 men to seize it. They even had to use a net. Apparently, they were unaware of the specific technique to fight against the beast, so they could only seize it with their physical strength. The man’s Kung Fu was obviously excellent. However, according to his progress in the battle, he would take at least another hundred strikes to take the beast down.
Gu Xijiu looked at the sky. It was already midnight. She tried to use her directed audio spell to get in touch with Di Fuyi but to no avail. She tried hard to recall how to locate him using her power, but a sudden warning pulled her back from her thoughts. “Xijiu, be careful!”
Gusts of violent winds were coming towards her. Gu Xijiu looked up, only to realize that Chinese Alligator was already launching a deadly strike at her, like a fast train that she was unable to avoid.
This situation was perfectly summed up in a saying, “A fire at the city gate had brought disaster to the fish in the moat.”
This time, Gu Xijiu could not stand at the side as a spectator. With swift teleportation, she knew that she had to avoid the head-on strike first. In another move, she retrieved her sword and aimed it at its eye.
She wanted to attack Chinese Alligator’s weak point first, but another idea suddenly occurred to her. She waved her sword and started to make random cuts on the beast. She saw the man’s moves, so what she did at the moment was actually a repetition of what the man had done.
When she first started using the moves, she was not quite familiar with the sequence. However, she soon mastered the method. It came to her naturally, and she was now certain that she and the man were somehow linked.The man proceeded to join her in the battle. “Xijiu, be careful. This thing is poisonous,” he reminded.
