Although Mr. Zhu dressed in a rather unconventional way, he was undeniably handsome and carried grace and elegance with him. He was generally known to be a mysterious man who had lived in seclusion for many years. An hour into the fight and his image was completely ruined. His hair was in a mess; in fact, most were missing. One side of his face was swollen. His robes were punched with holes. Also, a part of his leg was fractured.
He wanted to curse so badly to vent his anger, but any slight distraction would pepper his body under the burst of Di Fuyi’s continuous strikes, so he decided to focus on the fight instead. Finally, he noticed that Di Fuyi slowed down. Perhaps he had had enough revenge.
Mr. Zhu spoke up, “Di Fuyi, what is wrong with you today?” The man was very unhappy about his current state. The worst part about the defeat was that the woman he cared for was there to witness it. He was completely embarrassed. Di Fuyi was now undoubtedly the most powerful man in the Devil Kingdom.
Occasionally, people from the outside world would have to come into the kingdom and do business with the local devils. Mr. Zhu was the only man who helped produce the Devil Quenching Clothing. In other words, Di Fuyi needed the man.
The man respected Di Fuyi, but he had never expected that someday he would be so badly defeated. Yuanyuan must be the reason behind Di Fuyi’s sudden wave of anger, he thought.
“Di Fuyi, I suppose you no longer need the Devil Quenching Clothing. Is this price worth paying, all because of Yuanyuan?” He could not hold back his anger anymore.
“It was not because of her. You have been annoying me for quite some time. I have always wanted to beat you up,” he responded sarcastically. Then, he continued with another wave of attacks.
Di Fuyi was excellent at strategizing his attacks and using array formations. Simply with a twist and a turn on his wrist, he managed to establish a fiery array formation right behind Mr. Zhu. He intended to burn the man alive.
Mr. Zhu took a step back as he saw Di Fuyi conjuring an attack. He almost fell into the burning flames behind.
“Take the principle steps. Venture into the forbidden land.”
Gu Xijiu, who had been quietly watching the fight, suddenly offered him a hint. Without a second thought, Mr. Zhu did as told. Not only did he manage to escape from the fiery array formation, he even made it out next to Di Fuyi.
He managed to spot the flaw. Determined, he decided to target his sword at Di Fuyi. Di Fuyi avoided the sword at the very last minute, which came as a disappointment to the man. However, Mr. Zhu was still delighted that he finally managed to strike back.
“Master, you are the best. What should I do next?” Delighted, Mr. Zhu asked in excitement.
Gu Xijiu did not pay any attention to him. Instead, she gazed at Di Fuyi and said, “Yuanyuan was hurt because of me. The man was only asking for the cure on my behalf. Fight me, if revenge is what you seek. Stop making it difficult for the innocent man.”
Di Fuyi turned and looked at her. “Do you really think that I beat him up because of Yuanyuan?” The tone in his voice was stern and ice cold.
His expression turned into utter disappointment while his aura was getting stronger and stronger. It had reached a point where it was suffocating even for Gu Xijiu to be around him.
However, she did not step back. “I cannot think of any other reason.”
There was a look of sorrow in his eyes. “Very well, then!” He exclaimed.
Then, he took a leap and gave Mr. Zhu a sudden strike. The man was caught off guard by the sudden attack. Di Fuyi hit him right on the left side of his chest.
“Crack!” Three sharp blows could be heard. With a groan, Mr. Zhu realized that he had three fractured ribs as a result of the impact. He spat a mouthful of blood while pressing hard against the wound on his chest. He fell back weakly and tumbled.
With a laugh, Di Fuyi teased, “What a lousy man! Yuanyuan has two broken ribs because of you, so now I am making you suffer the same. The extra one is the price you have to pay for what you have done. If you dare to harm her again, I will make sure that you suffer ten times more than what you have suffered today.” Mr. Zhu was utterly shocked while Gu Xijiu did not know what to say. Di Fuyi ignored them and left.
Tranquility finally returned to the barren land. Nothing much had changed, other than their feelings toward each other.
