Zhu Duqing wanted to vomit out blood! However, he really did not dare to shout right now. “What do you want?!” He asked.
“You are too noisy. I do not like to be disturbed.” Di Fuyi circled around him as he spoke. He then praised the man, “Your posture is really different from the other people I know.”
He put his palm on the ‘bamboo’ and transferred his spiritual power into it so that Zhu Duqing could not say a word. Zhu Duqing was surprised by his action and was naturally also very furious. He shook his body and tried to restore himself to his original form, but he did not know what magic Di Fuyi used on him. He could not break out of it.
When he was busy shaking his body, Gu Xijiu, who had been meditating, suddenly opened her eyes.
“You’re awake? Come; eat a chicken leg and taste my cooking.” Di Fuyi handed over a roasted leg to her.
Gu Xijiu subconsciously took it from Di Fuyi as her stomach was growling. The aroma of the chicken leg in her hand could almost penetrate her limbs. This fragrance had already beaten the meat she had just baked.
She could not help but take a mouthful. It was sweet, tender, and smooth. It was very delicious! She had never tasted such good food in her life.
“Is it good?” Di Fuyi asked.
“It’s delicious.” Gu Xijiu sincerely praised.
“Eat more.” Di Fuyi encouraged her.
Gu Xijiu looked up and saw him sitting next to the campfire, smiling at her. The fire seemed to be dancing in his black pupils, and it was really enchanting.
Her heart skipped a beat, and she moved her eyes away from him. She suddenly noticed the bamboo that was not far from her. She was surprised and raised her eyebrows. When she meditated, she did not see this bamboo. How did it suddenly emerge?
She looked around again and noticed that everything else was the same. She finally recalled that someone was missing. It was her apprentice! “Where is Zhu Duqing?” She was a little panicked that the man went missing.
“He went to find his donkey.”
“His donkey is a genius. It can come back with just a whistle. He does not need to look for it.”
“The donkey is too proud; it did not want to respond to him.”
The donkey was definitely a proud one.
Gu Xijiu stopped asking questions but looked at the bamboo that seemed to be swaying even without the presence of any wind. “Why is this bamboo here?”
“Zhu Duqing was worried that you would feel hot, so he planted this bamboo for you.”
Zhu Duqing was a really understanding person. Gu Xijiu felt that she had chosen the right person to be her apprentice.
“Have it hot; it won’t be delicious if it’s cold.”
Gu Xijiu continued to eat the meat in her hand. The taste was wonderful. Without realizing, she had eaten the whole leg in her hand. “I didn’t expect your barbecue skills to be so good. I remember that you were not good at cooking.”
“What I used to be bad at will not always be my weakness. What else do you remember about me?” Di Fuyi was looking at her when he asked the question.
Gu Xijiu’s heart skipped a few beats again. She could sense that he was trying to make a move on her, and she did not want to be affected. She changed the topic, “What is this meat?” Somehow, she felt as if the taste was quite familiar, but she could not recall the source.
“It’s a Green Phoenix.”
Gu Xijiu was speechless.
“Do you not want to live anymore? This is a mythical beast! You will be struck by lightning if you eat it!”
Di Fuyi was surprised! He raised his eyebrows and spoke, “Really? It is just a bird.”
When he finished this sentence, there was lightning and thunder in the distance. Damn it! The storm really came on time!
Gu Xijiu pulled him with her. “Let’s go! Come with me!”.
There were a lot of cavesin the distance. Gu Xijiu already saw one when she was traveling here. It was not too far away- about three miles from where they were located.
