Did She Change Her Mind?
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
He used to be a gentle and soft-hearted gentleman who was friendly with everyone. However, the way he teased Di Fuyi was completely different from how he used to be. His aura suddenly became overbearing, strong enough to affect his surroundings. Leaves were shed from the trees as a result of his powerful influence.
All of a sudden, Gu Xijiu reappeared right in front of them.
Yun Yanli’s expression changed abruptly the moment he saw her. He took a step back and said, “Xijiu, why are you back again?” His powerful aura completely disappeared in an instant, and he was friendly again to her.
Di Fuyi’s eyes flickered with a sense of hope. He fixed his eyes on Gu Xijiu. Did she change her mind? Was she here for him?
Gu Xijiu ignored him completely and turned her attention to Yun Yanli. “Why are you still here? Do you still want to go to the city?”
With a nod, Yun Yanli gave her a firm confirmation. “Yes!”
“Let’s go!” Gu Xijiu wanted to turn around and leave again.
“Wait a minute!” Di Fuyi finally broke his silence.
However, Gu Xijiu did not stop. Suddenly, ared, shimmering crystal flew before Gu Xijiu’s eyes and placed itself safely in her hands.
Di Fuyi explained calmly, “This is a class-one spiritual crystal. Send it to Ye Ling to accomplish the mission.”
Gu Xijiu stopped to observe the spiritual crystal that he offered. She smiled, but he could not be sure if she were amused or being sarcastic. Soon, she turned around and threw the spiritual crystal back to him. “Thank you, but I do not anything from you.”
The spiritual crystal landed right next to Di Fuyi’s feet. Along with the crystal, there was another storage bag. It was a gift from him to Gu Xijiu before. It appeared that Gu Xijiu wanted to cut ties with him completely. Swiftly, she pulled Yun Yanli away and left.
Yun Yanli followed her, but before he left, he gave Di Fuyi another curious look. Di Fuyi stood completely still in the shade of a tree. He looked away, and there was no light on his face for anyone to tell his expression. His hair and robes danced in the gusts of wind. Even for a man as powerful as him, at the end of the day, he was left alone.
“Xijiu, are you still looking for a class-one spiritual crystal?”
At this point, they were already far away from Di Fuyi. They were entering a valley in the remote forest.
“Hmm,” she hummed absentmindedly. Her hands were still cold.
“Why?” Yun Yanli was curious.
“To save my people,” Gu Xijiu answered briefly. A conversation was the last thing that she wanted to have at the moment.
Yun Yanli saw the pale look on her beautiful face and sighed. “All right, I will help you!” He reassured her.
Gu Xijiu seemed concerned about his wellbeing. “You are injured! You should go to the city now. I can find a class-one spiritual stone myself.”
The beasts that possessed a class-one spiritual stone were very powerful. She was no match to the beasts without knowing their weakness.Yun Yanli said nothing more and searched into his pocket. Soon, he presented her with a spiritual stone, shining. “Xijiu, look at this. What do you think it is?”
Astonished, Gu Xijiu could tell that it was a class-one spiritual crystal. “You have got it, too!” Gu Xijiu was impressed. “How did you get it?”
She witnessed the battle between him and a class-two beast. It was a tough fight, and he won because she helped him. A class-one beast was far more powerful than what he had faced, and he somehow defeated it.
