The Devil King Came To The Rescue (2)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Gu Xijiu was unprepared, so the bottle of wine went flying in the air. Swiftly, the majestic donkey raised its head and grabbed the bottle with its mouth. It popped it open and drank every bit of the wine.
Gu Xijiu was astonished!
Troubled, Zhu Duqing complained, “I am afraid that our journey has to stop here for today.”
Gu Xijiu did not really mind the delay. “Let us call it a day.” Exhausted, she had to take a rest in the carriage.
After being poisoned, she would get tired very often. With her current condition, there would not be any use even if they made it to the swamp early. Therefore, Gu Xijiu felt that it was better for her to meditate to have a better recovery. Also, the spiritual stones came in handy to increase her spiritual power at that time.
After drinking the entire bottle of wine, the donkey threw the empty bottle away and made a long, doleful cry before running forward at full speed. It had never been so fast throughout its entire time of service.
Zhu Duqing was unprepared for the sudden launch and almost fell off from the carriage. “What madness is this?”
The donkey did not even bother to reply. It increased its speed instead. In the end, the donkey managed to cover a total journey of 800 miles in one shot, more effective than any other time before.
Moreover, they were traveling in the wild without any proper streets; its speed was very impressive buthad caught some unnecessary attention. While the donkey was speeding, five giant birds suddenly appeared and blocked its way with their large, widespread wings.
The donkey had to come to a sudden stop, which almost threw Gu Xijiu out of her seat. She steadied herself with the handle and quickly looked out of the window. There was a loud, demanding voice. “Who are you? Where are you heading to?”
Surprised, Gu Xijiu recognized the voice of the young palace master. They had met before in the Upper Bound. She knew that the young palace master was one of Yun Yanli’s followers. Never had she thought that they would run into each other so soon.
Gu Xijiu and Yun Yanli had not met for almost a month. As soon as she left the Devil Kingdom, she received a directed audio from Yun Yanli, asking for her location, as she had been out of touch for a while, and he was worried.
She did not want to uncover his deceit just yet, so she continued their conversation casually, saying that she was not quite in the mood to meet and that her directed audio spell was not working very well. She lied that she was now in Luo Hua City, having some drinks with her friends.
Gu Xijiu had many friends in Luo Hua City. She once reminded them to help her patch up a lie whenever someone asked for her whereabouts. Her friends were superb, so she trusted them very much. She was not even worried, despite knowing that Yun Yanli would definitely send his men to ask her friends about her whereabouts.
From the call, she could tell that Yun Yanli seemed to be quite occupied. After a quick chat, he ended the call by saying that he would see her soon to have a couple of drinks together. He made sure that she was safe before he hung up.
To Gu Xijiu’s surprise, she never expected that she would run into the young palace master in the middle of nowhere. The young palace master knew about Gu Xijiu. In fact, just yesterday, Gu Xijiu had a call with Yun Yanli and told him that she was staying in Luo Hua City; today, she bumped into the young palace master at a place that was 4,000 miles away from where she was supposed to be. No one would believe that she would travel that far in only one day.
Once the young palace master found out that Gu Xijiu was in the carriage, she would definitely tell Yun Yanli about it. His suspicion was the last thing Gu Xijiu needed at the moment.
Gu Xijiu’s face was not disguised, and it was too late to do it now. Meanwhile, Zhu Duqing was a narcissist who was obsessed with his looks. Although he was keen to learn the facial disguise technique, he was not willing to change his features. He thought that he was the most handsome man in the world.
His robes were easy to recognize too. As soon as he stopped the carriage, the young palace master immediately knew his identity.
