Entering The Devil Kingdom (8)

Gu Xijiu answered Luo Zheng casually, “I will go around the city and have some fun.”
She tried to perform a spell to track Di Fuyi’s aura, but it failed. Was he even in the city? Did she head to the right place? Perhaps there was some unique mechanism here that could hide one’s aura. Had his aura been masked?
It was a long way into the Devil Kingdom, so she refused to leave empty-handed. Determined, she had decided to stay and carry out a thorough investigation.
Luo Zheng was surprised by her nonchalance. “Xuyue, have you forgotten that all outsiders cannot stay for more than a day in the Devil Kingdom? Two days later, the Devil Quenching Clothing that we are wearing will lose its protective function, and we will be burned to ashes.”
Apparently, she was unaware of it. If that were the case, she only had eight hours to spare. Luckily, she had two sets of Devil Quenching Clothing, enough to buy her another day in the Devil Kingdom.
“I must not leave this place empty-handed. I need to close the deal before I leave,” she answered with a smile.
Luo Zheng was a really helpful man. “All right, I will accompany you to make sure that the Silver Wolf is sold. We can go to the western part of the city this afternoon. There is a market for majestic beings. Maybe we can try our luck there.”
Gu Xijiu coughed. “There is no need. I can go there myself.” She never intended to sell the Silver Wolf, so she wanted to avoid going to the market.
It was already noon. While Luo Zheng was trying to discuss for a fair price with his buyer, Gu Xijiu chimed in and helped him fight for a better offer, thus maximizing his profit. In return, Luo Zheng invited her to a nearby restaurant for lunch.
Gu Xijiu accepted his invitation immediately. Restaurants were the center of the masses where people gathered. Perhaps she could get more information from the bustling people.
Luo Zheng was not rich enough to afford a private room, so they looked for a table in the common hall instead. There were many people in the restaurant, but only a few outsiders. Luckily, the people here were not really bothered by the outsiders. They did not pay any attention to Gu Xijiu and Luo Zheng when they entered the restaurant.
The Silver Wolf, however, had certainly drawn much attention, especially from the women. Women, in general, had a soft spot for these furry animals. Therefore, many of them could not resist the temptation to pet the furry wolf.
The Silver Wolf was arrogant. It ignored all the affection of the ladies and focused on its food. Since it was able to understand their conversations, it knew that the people found it rather adorable. Some even approached Gu Xijiu and asked about the price of the wolf.
Gu Xijiu told them the price that she offered. Upon hearing the price, all of them avoided the wolf immediately. One of the women was not very pleased, so she added, “It is only a Silver Wolf. How can it possibly be worth 100,000 devil coins!? You are clearly robbing us!”
Gu Xijiu ignored her and continued to enjoy her lunch.
Luo Zheng sighed. “Xuyue, your price is indeed way too high.”
“That is all right. Majestic beings will only go to their fated owner,” Gu Xijiu reassured him.
Luo Zheng kept quiet.
While Gu Xijiu was eating, she also focused on the conversations at the nearby tables. Most of the people there were talking about the contributions of the Devil King. Clearly, they adored and respected the Devil King very much. When they talked about the Devil King, they never mentioned anything about his name yet addressed him very formally.
From their conversation, Gu Xijiu found out that the princess would be celebrating her birthday tomorrow, so there would be a massive celebration in the city. People were actually busy preparing for tomorrow’s event in the bustling streets.
As for the Devil King, he did not take her birthday present lightly. According to the rumors, he had left the city to look for the best birthday present for the princess.
