Guardian Jin quickly agreed and did not leave her side again. Yun Qingluo pursed her lips with a pair of teary eyes. “Brother, I know you still care about me…”
Di Fuyi glimpsed at her and casually replied, “You overthink! Yun Qingluo, stop fooling around! Otherwise, you will face the consequences!” He turned around and walked away when he finished.
Guardian Jin was stunned by what he heard. Yun Qingluo? This was the first time he learned that Princess Yuanyuan’s name was actually Yun Qingluo.
Yun Qingluo’s heart skipped a beat by the realization. Upon brief contemplation, she put on a smile on her face.What could be worse when she was already at her lowest point in life?
The Silver Ring Crocodile seemed to have sensed its death approaching; anxiously, it became even more ferocious! Its power seemed to have doubled while its size also grew. It pounded on the array formed by Gu Xijiu, trying to find a way to escape.
Most of the features behind the array were based on illusions. In the past, the crocodile used to be affected by the illusions. Particularly, when it saw a large mountain falling toward it! However, it decided to ignore them and began to counter-attack with its claws when it saw the mountain falling toward it again!
After all, the mountain was just an illusion! It was just a few huge rocks! Hence, it was crushed into dust when the crocodile smashed it! It seemed to be surprised that the mountain was so fragile. Instead of fearing the illusions, it decided to attack them with all its might. It also spat a massive puddle of venomous red liquid to try to break the array. It did not hold back any of its abilities!
Suddenly, the team found the rocks being destroyed one by one. Thus, Hua Qianjun quickly filled the gaps with new rocks. Unfortunately, he was unable to replace the rocks fast enough since half of the rocks in the array had been destroyed in less than 30 minutes!
Everyone was getting anxious now, especially Guardian Jin.He was instructed to protect Yun Qingluo, which was supposed to be the most straightforward job. Unfortunately, the crocodile began to attack him once it figured out the secret behind the illusions.If the rest of the group were not working hard to stop the crocodile, it would have torn the two of them into pieces!
In addition, the venom from the crocodile and the strong gusts of wind it created made matters even more challenging for them.
“Hua Qianjun, stay in this position from now onward.” Di Fuyi made way for him.
“Yes!” Hua Qianjun dashed quickly to where Di Fuyi stood.
“Mr. Zhu, please assist me.” Di Fuyi rushed to Zhu Duqing and drew a spell on his palm. “Print this on the bamboos with your spiritual power…”
Certainly, Zhu Duqing followed Di Fuyi’s instructions. The spell seemed to be glowing on his palms as he tapped on the bamboos. Strangely, a layer of protection formed on all the bamboos that had been cast with the spells; thus, it was not so easily damaged when the crocodile smashed it.
Meanwhile, Di Fuyi cast a spell on the rocks in the vicinity. There appeared to be a protection membrane formed around the rocks after he cast a spell on them. As a result, the quantity of the bamboos and the rocks remain unchanged for a short period.
However, this strategy consumed a lot of spiritual power, and Zhu Duqing began to feel dizzy after casting spells on the bamboos. The two men with the highest spiritual powers were busy casting spells; hence, the responsibility of guarding the array fell on Gu Xijiu and Huan Qianjun’s shoulders.
It was not a big deal for Gu Xijiu as she was the one who created the array and was good at using the rocks as her shield. However, it was a little more difficult for Hua Qianjun as he struggled to defend himself. In just a few minutes, his face began to turn pale, and his limbs were numb.
Fortunately, Di Fuyi often passed by and managed to help him out. Otherwise, he would have slumped to the ground purely out of exhaustion. Gu Xijiu was sitting at the center of the array. Although she was stressed out too, it was manageable for her at the moment.
Di Fuyi also helped her occasionally,but she would frown when he did. “I can manage this; you should help Guardian Hua.”
Di Fuyi looked at her and asked, “Do you not want my help?”
Gu Xijiu pursed her lips. “I can handle this!”
Di Fuyi paused and sighed. “Xijiu, sometimes, I wish that you are weaker.” In fact, he hoped that she could rely on him. He would even be okay if she were acting like a cute baby in front of him. He would certainly prefer that to her trying to put everything on her shoulders like a man.
He wanted to keep her under his wings so that he could protect her from everything, including the wind and rain. Subconsciously, he thought that itwas the way they should interact with each other. He did not want their relationship to be the way it was right now. She was too independent to the extent that she might even want to stand in front of him and protect him!
It was not the time to argue with her, so Di Fuyi left her side and continued casting spells on the rocks.
Gu Xijiu paused and then smiled awkwardly. In fact, she wanted to be weak sometimes. However, she could not do so whenever she remembered that Di Fuyi was still a kid!?
She used to act cute with him when she suffered from amnesia and thought that Di Fuyi was her fiance. However, she remembered everything now. How could she be cute to a child who was just ten-years-old?
Yun Qingluo was indeed a lovely woman; she was just like a little bunny in front of Di Fuyi. Perhaps, that was the reason he liked her? Gu Xijiu shook her head as she did not want to think about all these problems right now.
She was not usually an indecisive person; however, she was completely helpless when it came to love. She realized that she was not her usual self. In fact, she was distracted and did not notice that the crocodile, which was busy attacking Hua Qianjun, had changed its target. Its claw nearly smashed her!
When she noticed it, its claw almost hit her skull! “Watch out!” She heard a loud shout. Hua Qianjun jumped forward and landed in front of her! Swiftly, she quickly teleported away with the man. Unfortunately, she was slightly late. When they landed on a giant rock, she realized that Hua Qianjun’s chest was injured!
Dark green blood gushed out from the wound, and his face turned purplish in an instant! He was poisoned! Fortunately, all of them had consumed an antidote before they entered the swamp. Otherwise, Hua Qianjun would have been dead by now.
