Softly, she protested, but he did not let her go. Instead, he held onto her even tighter. The two escorts were quite observant. They noticed that Di Fuyi was busy showering the lady with affection, but they dared not look back. Attentively, they only listened closely to the conversation.
Certainly, they had not forgotten that Yun Qingluo’s safety was their biggest concern. They had to be alert to keep her away from danger. As for Zhu Duqing, he frowned in utter annoyance.
Not wanting to observe this any longer, he reached out his hand, trying to pull Gu Xijiu away, but before he managed to touch her sleeve, Di Fuyi seemed to have blocked his approach. Zhu Duqing was speechless while Di Fuyi gave him a nonchalant look that was not quite friendly as a sign for him to stay away.
Suddenly, Zhu Duqing was reminded about what happened the night before, when Di Fuyi turned him into a bamboo tree. If he were to provoke Di Fuyi even more, he would probably turn Zhu Duqing back into an immobile bamboo tree in this land full of danger with nowhere to escape.
Overwhelmed by a sudden sense of panic, he decided not to do anything that would annoy Di Fuyi, though compliance was certainly against his will.
Gu Xijiu tried to pull her hand out of Di Fuyi’s grasp but was not successful. Di Fuyi held onto her even tighter, making her regret making the mistake in the first place. “Let me go!” She sent a directed audio to him.
“I will not!” His smile remained, but the way he replied was rather firm.
“You should not be using me as an excuse to make her feel bad.”
“Baby, we have a son together. You and I are a couple.”
Gu Xijiu was speechless. Determined, she confessed, “Di Fuyi, as I have told you, I found the child in the woods and adopted him. There is no need for you to keep me around, just for me to play the role of a mother.”
“Try to find me a daughter.”
Gu Xijiu did not answer, for she did not know what to say. She stomped on his foot in frustration, thus leaving a mark on his nicely cleaned shoe.
“Your shoe is dirty. Use the cleaning spell to get rid of the dirt.”
In order to perform the cleaning spell, he would have to let go of her waist.
Smilingly, Di Fuyi answered, “The mark is pretty nice; it is like the motif of a flower. I will keep it.”
Irritated, Gu Xijiu then offered, “Should I make another motif on the other shoe, so they can become a pair?”
“I do not like things that come in pairs. Let it be. It looks best when it is created randomly. Deliberation is not the style I would prefer,” Di Fyi gave her an unexpected answer.
Gu Xijiu was speechless again. He was indeed very confusing sometimes.
Suddenly, Di Fuyi whispered into her ears, “I knew that you were trying to make her feel jealous as a form of revenge.”
Gu Xijiu did not know how he realized her intention. The man must be using her to make Yun Qingluo feel bad as well. At this rate, would it be surprising if Yun Qingluo decided to lead them to their doom?
All of a sudden, Yun Qingluo could be heard screaming. A giant mouth appeared right in front of her very quickly and unexpectedly.
Very soon, a streak of red lights could be seen flashing out from the giant mouth that was aimed right at Yun Qingluo. The attack caught everyone off guard. Even the two escorts behind her were unable to react.
Before the streak of red lights managed to take Yun Qingluo away, another flash of seven-colored light came to the rescue.
“Crack!” After a loud explosion, the creature trembled helplessly on the ground. It was already cut into half, and there was blood everywhere.
