Did You Not Sleep At All Last Night?

Despite all her negative thoughts, Gu Xijiu still held a glimmer of hope before approaching Yun Yanli for help. The city gate closed on time every night at 11 PM, and no one was allowed to enter or leave. When Gu Xijiu came back with Yun Yanli yesterday, she used her teleportation technique and bypassed the gate.
The gate was already closed by the time they returned, so ifDi Fuyi returned to the city, he would not be able to enter through the gate but would have to find another way through. That would explain why the gatekeeper would have no record of his return.
Nonetheless, given his abilities, she was certain that he would find a way to enter. Thus, she checked all the inns in the city; however, the result was the same.Since she had no idea where he was, she had to come and ask for help.
Yun Yanli looked at the sweat that rolled down from Gu Xijiu’s forehead and then shifted his gaze to the dark circles around her eyes. “Did you not sleep at all last night? Were you out looking for him?”
“No, I managed to sleep for a while.” She only slept for two hours.
Yun Yanli suddenly raised his hand and grabbed her wrist tightly. Gu Xijiu frowned and subconsciously wanted to withdraw her hand. However, it was held tightly by Yun Yanli! Her palm was hot, but her fingertips were cold. Yun Yanli looked at her icily. “Xijiu, you have a fever!”
“Hmm?” Gu Xijiu finally managed to withdraw her hand. After hearing him out, she was stunned! She subconsciously touched her own forehead to check the validity of his statement. She found that her forehead was indeed hot.
No wonder when she woke up this morning she felt a bit dizzy and her joints were sore. She initially attributed this to her fatigue; however, as she was too focused on looking for Gu Xijiu, she did not pay much attention to it. At this moment, she was reminded by Yun Yanli and finally paid some attention to her health.
It seemed that the heavy rain last night had an effect on her. Perhaps she caught a cold from it. Gu Xijiu subconsciously put her hand into the sleeves; she wanted to take out some medicine for her treatment. Nonetheless, when her hand was in her sleeve, she could not find anything. All her medicines were given to her by Di Fuyi and were all in the storage bag that she returned to him.
Gu Xijiu decided to look on the bright side. It was just a cold; she would not die because of this. With her physique, she should be able to recover quickly. Satisfied with her conjecture, she looked up and was about to say something. However, her wrist was grabbed by Yun Yanli again. “Come with me!”
Gu Xijiu frowned. She did not like to have skin contact with people; subconsciously, she struggled, out of his grasp. “What are you doing?”
“You have the flu. It must be addressed immediately.”
Yun Yanli exerted so much force on Gu Xijiu so she could not wriggle her way out. Instead, she had to follow him out of the place. Before Yun Yanli arrived, the place was in shambles. It was now sparkling clean.
Yun Yanli retrieved a stool from his storage to let her sit down. He then took out a ceramic cup and poured a cup of hot water into it. He then took out two pills and handed it to her. “This medicine can cure your cold. Eat it.”
Gu Xijiu looked down at the pill and was stunned! Di Fuyi had given her the same pill before. He told her that it was refined by her when she was in the Upper Bound.The two pills looked precisely the same.
She looked up at Yun Yanli, who smiled at her. “Does this medicine give you any flashbacks? Xijiu, this is medicine that has been refined by you. When you were in the Upper Bound, you gave it to me during one of our adventures. It is a miraculous effect on flu…”
Gu Xijiu put the pill below her nose and smelled it. It became apparent to her that the pill given to her by Di Fuyi before was made in the same batch as the one in her hand right now.
