Alas, Guardian Jin was convinced. He nodded as he responded, “In that case, let me go and help them. You should still be careful. If something is wrong, do not hesitate to call one of us.”
Yun Qingluo nodded. “Alright.”
Soon, Guardian Jin joined the battle.
He was also skilled in array formations but was not as good as Hua Qianjun. However, he had spent some time watching from the sidelines and was able to remember some steps. He was certainly smart, so that helped. He did not attempt to fight with the crocodile just yet, but instead, assisted Hua Qianjun in repositioning any boulders.
Hua Qianjun had basically positioned himself at the weak point of the array. With Guardian Jin’s assistance, the pressure he felt was relieved.
As Gu Xijiu teleported around the place to secure the array, she suddenly saw Guardian Jin and was stunned. She asked, “Why are you here?” Gu Xijiu quickly tried to locate Yun Qingluo. Although she found her, there was a big stone blocking most of her body.
Guardian Jin had already learned from Hua Qianjun that Gu Xijiu formed this array, so he admired her. He told her what Yun Qingluo said to him and also offered to help.
Since Gu Xijiu tried not to use her spiritual power, she found herself very fatigued from this battle. If Guardian Jin were able to help her, it would certainly ease her work. Therefore, she agreed to Guardian Jin’s proposal. Nevertheless, before they could really do anything together, Di Fuyi had suddenly emerged.
When he saw that Guardian Jin was around Gu Xijiu, his facial expression changed. “Guardian Jin, why are you here? Go back and protect Princess Yuanyuan. You must not let anything happen to her!”
The Devil King brutally scolded Guardian Jin. He did not dare to refute so he could only agree and turn around immediately.
Gu Xijiu was stunned by this action and almost tripped over a big stone. Her body seemed to jerk a little. Di Fuyi held her from the side and asked, “What happened to you?”
Gu Xijiu pushed him away. “Nothing, quickly finish off the crocodile!”
Di Fuyi frowned. When he held her, he felt that her hands were cold. It was not normal. Just as he was about to check further, he heard Yun Qingluo screaming. “Help!!!”
As he looked in her direction, he saw that the crocodile, which was still trapped a moment ago, had broken through the array and was headed directly toward Yun Qingluo!
At that very moment, Guardian Jin had not arrived by her side. Di Fuyi was also far away from her. It was too late for either of them to rescue her! However, Gu Xijiu quickly teleported over!
Before Yun Qingluo finished screaming, Gu Xijiu had already appeared by her side and teleported her to safety. The crocodile had raised its paw to attack Yun Qingluo but only managed to tear Gu Xijiu’s sleeve. Fortunately, none of them were hurt. They appeared in another relatively safe place, and Gu Xijiu put her down on the ground.
When she just put her down, Di Fuyi also arrived at the scene. He grabbed Gu Xijiu’s hand and asked, “Were you hurt? Let me take a look!” He was particularly worried about the arm which the crocodile scraped.
Gu Xijiu pulled her hand back. “I am fine; you don’t have to check.” She turned and teleported again.
Di Fuyi was speechless. He looked at Yun Qingluo, whose face was pale. She looked back at him and tried to speak, “Brother… I am fine; don’t worry.” Although her voice was soft, Di Fuyi was able to hear it.
Di Fuyi did not care about her right now. Instead, he instructed Guardian Jin, who had just arrived, “Look after her! If you dare to leave her side again, I will peel off your skin!”
