The Only Person She Could Rely On Was Herself

Di Fuyi was nowhere near to being a match to Yun Yanli. Perhaps, he thought it was best for him to avoid the fight. But where would he go into hiding, then?
All nine cities in the Shura World belonged to Yun Yanli. No matter where he chose to hide, his whereabouts would still be exposed, sooner or later.
The only place that Yun Yanli feared was the Shura Devil Kingdom. He was probably not hiding in that place. So how could he go into hiding without leaving any trace behind? How could he leave her behind to survive on her own? Wasn’t he worried that Yun Yanli might take advantage of her? Wasn’t he concerned that Yun Yanli might take his spot beside her?
As the thought crossed her mind, she quickly stopped herself from overthinking. After all, she was not actually his wife.Gu Xijiu silenced her illogical inner voice. Then, she turned and asked the Firmament Stone something more important. “Little Cang, do you know anything about the Shura Devil Kingdom?”
“Master, I… I am not well-informed,” the Firmament Stone argued weakly. The only setting that it was most familiar with was the Tianci Continent, which was the same as the Saha World where Gu Xijiu became the Lord. In the Shura World, it only knew as much as she did.
Gu Xijiu pursed her lips into a tight line. The only person she could rely on was herself. She was taught to be independent. So now she had to keep pushing forward using her own strength. The Firmament Stone was able to foresee her next move. “Master, are we venturing into the Shura Devil Kingdom?” It promptly suggested.
Gu Xijiu dismissed its thought, “No, the theft of the spiritual stones has greatly weakened their operations. Yun Yanli must be very desperate now. He will definitely think that it is a plot from the people of the Devil Kingdom, so his men will definitely secure the entrance. If we go, we will walk right into his trap.”
“Where do we go next?”
“To Luo Hua City. It is time to take a look at the body.” Gu Xijiu was interested in the deceased, Mrs. Yun. She needed to confirm her speculations.
The Firmament Stone was speechless.
Luo Hua City was at least 3,000 miles away from Suiye City. Even with a horse, one would need at least three days to travel there on a smooth course. Nonetheless, the paths were mostly abandoned. Trees and bushes started to grow, hindering the travelers from making a smooth trip. Thus, the journey would naturally require a walk in the woods, extending the travel from a couple of days to more than a week.
Gu Xijiu’s teleportation skill had saved her from the trouble. After she recalled her memory, she managed to attain the acme of perfection with some of her familiar teleportation spells. Each spell could take her as far as 50 miles. After dozens of teleportations, she was able to catch up with the Clouded Leopard King.
The Clouded Leopard King was taking a rest somewhere in the mountains. She had told it to take its time and allowed it to wander around, so it did as told. The Clouded Leopard King was the king of all beasts in the Shura World. Other than the crazy Chinese Alligator, no other beast dared to come any closer to it, so its journey was rather smooth.
When Gu Xijiu reappeared, the beast leaped in excitement. Quickly, it picked up the meat of its prey deer in its mouth and gave it to her. It swung its tail excitedly, expecting her to grill the meat. The sight of the beast reminded her of the mussel and Lu Wu, overwhelming her with a sudden sense of reminiscence. Tearfully, she took the meat and started grilling it, half for her and the other half for the Clouded Leopard King.
While eating, her intuition told her that someone was watching her in the dark. She remained quiet, but secretly, she performed a precautions spell against the possible threat.
The directed audio spell at her waist suddenly rang. It was a call from Yun Yanli. She answered the call, and the first thing she heard was his magnetic voice. “Xijiu, where are you right now?”
