Yun Qingluo bit onto her lips. Di Fuyi understood her thoughts, so there was no point in hiding anymore. She continued, “Yes, I had never expected that you would be here in the Shura World. The moment I saw you, I fell for you all over again. I chose to fake my death and disregard all consequences, just to keep you alive.”
Tears started rolling in her eyes. “Celestial Master Zuo, I have never stopped loving you, from my previous life until today.” She finally addressed him like how she used to before. Her hand trembled as she tried to reach out for Di Fuyi.
She was longing for him, so much so that she was going crazy. She wanted to pull his robes to get his attention. Unfortunately, Di Fuyi never gave her a chance. He took a step back to avoid Yun Qingluo from touching him. Unsteadily, she almost fell from the bed.
“I never liked you. I never did!” Di Fuyi added, “You are no different than all the other women to me. Yun Qingluo, I know that you have saved my life because of your personal interest. I will now offer you another chance, and if you do not take it seriously, I will make sure you suffer a painful death.”
“What chance?” Yun Qingluo looked up at him.
Di Fuyi reached out his hand and demanded, “Give me the other half of the antitoxin.”
Yun Qingluo was surprised. “Have you seen her?”
“How could she still be alive?” Yun Qingluo murmured.
“She will live longer than you do!” Di Fuyi’s face turned furious. If it were not for the second half of the antitoxin, he would have hit Yun Qingluo and send her flying in the air.
He was a skilled doctor. When he was reading Gu Xijiu’s pulse, he noticed that her heart was surrounded by some very strong toxins. He tried many ways to detoxify the toxins but to no avail.
All he could do was to secure and stop the toxins from spreading around her body, so she would not be in pain and would still be able to move.
He was still quite worried about her condition, so he decided to give Gu Xijiu the pill that he got from his father. The pill worked as an elixir of life in times of danger. The pill was powerful enough to bring the dying back to life, even for those that were already dead. Hence, it would definitely be very helpful for Gu Xijiu.
Although the pill could not help detoxify the toxins, it could protect her vessels from being eroded by the toxins. When Gu Xijiu was first poisoned, her nervous system was greatly affected to the point beyond repair. Even when the toxin was finally detoxified, she would lose all of her spiritual power and the ability to practice Kung Fu in the future, unless she decided to reincarnate into another body.
However, with the elixir of life, all that could be avoided. Di Fuyi was not very knowledgeable in terms of poisons, but his mother, Ning Xuemo, was the Great Devil who was just as skillful as Gu Xijiu in that area. She was worried that Di Fuyi would one day be harmed, so she wrote him a book with a compilation of many different poisons.
The compilation covered and contained everything that he needed to know about the use of poisons and the different methods of detoxification. After studying the book comprehensively, he was considered an expert in the use of poisons, too.
Thus, when he examined Gu Xijiu, he quickly came to the realization that the antitoxin that she took from Mr. Zhu was only half of the cure. There should be another half. That was the reason why he quickly returned to the palace.
As for the fight between him and Mr. Zhu, he was angry about what Gu Xijiu said to him. He went all the way for her, and yet she thought that what he did was for Yuanyuan.
Since she had already misunderstood his intention, he decided to make her believe whatever she chose to believe. He wanted to let her know that the only way to get revenge for Yuanyuan was to break the ribs of Mr. Zhu the same way he did to her. That was what Di Fuyi would usually do.
There was another reason for the fight. Mr. Zhu had feelings for his newfound master, Gu Xijiu. He had to make sure that the man was injured and would not be able to do anything to Gu Xijiu even if he wanted to. She would be safe. Last but not least, he had always wanted to give that man a lesson. Now he finally had the chance.
