Yun Yanli seemed to understand the thoughts running through her mind. Smilingly, he explained, “Xijiu, when I first came here, my spiritual power was much stronger. A class-one beast emerged all of a sudden, so I fought it off and acquired the stone. I have been keeping it for a while. Now, you can use it to save your people.”
Gu Xijiu did not quite understand his offer. She asked, “Do you know the use of this spiritual stone? It will greatly restore your spiritual power, especially this one. It is not something you can get every day.”
Yun Yanli sighed. “Xijiu, I have been here for quite a while. Surely, I know the unique application of this spiritual stone.”
“Why did you give it to me, then?”
Yun Yanli pulled her hand and put the crystal on her palm. “Xijiu, like I said, I am a friend. I am a friend who you can trust for life. If you take me as a friend, then accept it.”
Gu Xijiu was touched by his kind gesture. She finally accepted the crystal and thanked him. “Great! I really appreciate it!”
She made a mental note that she would collect another spiritual stone of the same power and return it to him someday. She did not like to owe anyone anything.
Yun Yanli was relieved at her acceptance. “That is all right.” He smiled.
Gu Xijiu offered him a class-two spiritual stone. “Please absorb this one.”
Yun Yanli did not hesitate and accepted the crystal, “All right, let us absorb its power together.”
He closed his eyes and absorbed half of the spiritual power contained in the crystal. Then, he passed it back to Gu Xijiu. “You should take the other half.”
Gu Xijiu turned down his offer and said, “Don’t worry; you can have it all.”
Although she wanted to become stronger, she did not want to share the spiritual stone with Yun Yanli.
“All right, I will do as you say.” Yun Yanli finally agreed and finished the other half while meditating.
When he opened his eyes again, he saw Gu Xijiu still standing in front of him. She seemed to be deep in thought as she stared blankly into the emptiness.
His eyes darkened as he suggested hesitantly, “Xijiu, if you are worried about him, you can go back and have a look.”
Gu Xijiu finally recovered from her contemplations and was ready to leave. “No need. We shall head to the city.”
Di Fuyi’s Kung Fu was stronger than hers, so she did not feel the need to check on him. Now that she was no longer looking for him, she could skip the time-consuming search and teleport directly to the city. Together with Yun Yanli, she took a few turns and arrived at Luo Hua City shortly after.
First thing first, Gu Xijiu had to visit her people. They were fine, proving that her threatworked. He no longer gave her people a difficult time. The men still had to deal with the most tiring jobs, but at least the women were not required to work in the brothel anymore. They were assigned to sweep and clean the streets. They were relieved to see Gu Xijiu again. Immediately, they greeted her warmly.
Certainly, the handsome man next to Gu Xijiu had also caught many curious eyes. Gu Xijiu did not want to talk too much about him. “This is my friend, Mr. Yun Yanli,” she briefly introduced him to the people.
Yun Yanli was an amiable, young gentleman who treated everyone equally with grace and respect. Smilingly, he greeted the people with enthusiasm. The people were welcoming. Yun Yanli was a guest of Gu Xijiu, so they greeted him warmly in return by offering handshakes or gentle taps on the shoulder.
Their hands were actually dirty, covered in a layer of dust, but Yun Yanli did not mind any of it. He returned all handshakes with a firm grip.Gu Xijiu watched the entire friendly exchange and was not sure of what to feel. She remembered the first time they met Di Fuyi and were eager to get friendly with him.
