Was He Reluctant To let Her Go?

He raised his hand and immediate cast a wizardry barrier around her room. The wizardry barrier was soundproof, so no one else would be able to hear her, no matter how she shrieked or screamed in agony.
He took another step forward while Yun Qingluo looked at him fixedly. There was a mixed sign of pain and anxiety in her eyes.
She knew that her insolence had greatly displeased him. He was about to make her suffer. If he did, they would definitely come into contact. She was willing to endure the suffering if it was the only way that she got to touch him.
About an hour later, Yun Qingluo lay almost lifelessly on the bed. Her body kept trembling every now and then. There was no external injury on her body. Di Fuyi only attacked some specific acupuncture points until every inch of her bones started to ache. She felt as if countless ants were crawling and chewing on her bones.
The pain was beyond her endurance, and the itchiness was beyond compare. She wanted to end her agony. She wanted to scream out loud and roll around in pain, but she was too weak even to move. She could only accept the fate of her suffering, helplessly.
Di Fuyi sat beside her and started playing chess. He paid no attention to Yun Qingluo’s groan of despair and continued moving each piece. Before his game even finished, Yun Qingluo already surrendered herself.
“I will tell you what you need to know. The two pills must be taken at the same time in order to be effective.” She added by describing some characteristics about the poison and finally told the truth under Di Fuyi’s intense gaze. “The main ingredient is the Gu poison that I made with the blood from my heart. Under the current circumstance, she will need to make the antitoxin with a few different herbs, in addition to the heart of the Silver Ring Crocodile.”
Troubled, Di Fuyi knew about the Silver Ring Crocodiles that lived in the poisonous swamps. It was difficult to enter the area. What troubled him more was that the swamps were not found in the Devil Kingdom, but in the outside world.
“All right, I am done. If my life is all you ask for, take it now,” Yun Qingluo closed her eyes and told him firmly.
She knew him well enough to know that he would not let her go easily this time. She waited for that one deadly strike, but it never happened. She opened her eyes and was surprised to find that Di Fuyi was looking at her calmly without any intention to move.
He was still there, looking rather pensive.
“You…” She started to feel some faint hope. Was he reluctant to let her go?
Di Fuyi answered calmly, “You were not telling the entire truth. Yun Qingluo, you know all about my tricks. If you die, I will be sure to confine your soul and torture you some more. The pain will be even greater than what you had just now. Are you sure that you are ready to challenge my limits?”
Yun Qingluo felt hopeless this time. “How… How could you tell?”
Di Fuyi continued to observe her in silence.
She finally gave up and told Di Fuyi everything that he wanted to find out. “You are right. You cannot simply use the heart of any Silver Ring Crocodile as the guiding herb. You need to find the one that is controlled by my Gu poison and take its heart.”
“How can I find that specific Silver Ring Crocodile?”
Yun Qingluo closed her eyes and confessed. “When you are in the poisonous swamps, take the blood of my heart and pour it down at a specific location. The beast will present itself to you.”
Di Fuyi remained quiet.
It was a rather ordinary carriage. A black donkey was pulling the carriage. Only its four hoofs were covered in a contrasting tone of white. The donkey had its own character. If it was whipped or mistreated, it would get in a rage and stop moving.
