Who Had Been Schemed?
Gu Xijiu was a very observant person. She had a hunch that Di Fuyi seemed to be waiting for something, an opportunity. However, she had yet to ascertain exactly what it was that he wanted. Although she was curious, enough things were going on at the time, so she just stayed in her position and tried to reduce the pressure on the two men.
As for Yun Qingluo, she had been sitting there to meditate, like a statue. Her pretty face was ashen, which was certainly a concern for Guardian Jin and the rest.
Fortunately, the crocodile did not attack her for the time being, as it was occupied with Di Fuyi and Mr. Zhu. Since there was no danger, Guardian Jin could concentrate on treating Hua Qianjun’s wounds.
Gu Xijiu’s medicine was very useful, as expected. Without too much effort, the poison that had infected Hua Qianjun was almost fully neutralized. However, he could not stand up on his own just yet. Guardian Jin was eager to re-join the battle, but he did not dare to make any move without instructions from Di Fuyi.
Therefore, he stood at the sidelines, observing the battle. However, as he was excitedly watching the scene, Yun Qingluo, who was at his side, suddenly groaned and vomited blood! Both Guardian Jin and Hua Qianjun were shocked!
Meanwhile, Di Fuyi, who was in the midst of a fierce battle, suddenly flew over! He waved his sleeve, and it seemed like a knife that was aimed at Yun Qingluo! Hua Qianjun instantly rose to his feet. “Devil King, please don’t!”
Before he could finish his sentence, Di Fuyi sleeves had covered Yun Qingluo. A colorful light appeared briefly and disappeared just as fast. Under the colorful light, they could hear Yun Qingluo screaming. When the light dissipated, Yun Qingluo had fallen to the ground.
Hua Qianjun’s hand hands were shaking. When he was going to see how she was, he heard the crocodile’s sorrowful screams, and it also fell to the ground. Its body seemed a little disfigured, and its bones were out of position. Its body was shrinking at a speed that could be seen by the naked eye.
Its skin gradually changed color, and it now looked like its subordinates from before, though with a slightly larger head. After rolling around in pain, it seemed to have stopped.
Di Fuyi leaped onto the crocodile’s body and stabbed his sword right through its chest. He seemed to extract the crocodile’s heart and looked relieved. “Take it!”
The extracted heart was bright red, but there was a small groove on it that seemed as though something had been connected to it before.
“Go and refine the medicine you require.” Di Fuyi handed the heart to Gu Xijiu.
Gu Xijiu also breathed a sigh of relief as she took the heart. “Thank you.”
Di Fuyi seemed rather disappointed by her reply. Instead of throwing a tantrum, he said, “This will be more effective when it is fresh. You should start refining it now.”
Gu Xijiu did not want to delay the process either; after all, everything else was already prepared. Hence, she started the process.
“Master, please look at the princess. Something is not quite right.” Hua Qianjun pleaded.
Di Fuyi turned and slowly walked to Yun Qingluo’s side. He looked down at her for a moment and said, “You deserve it!”
He waved his sleeves, and Yun Qingluo rolled over on the ground. She seemed to have been hiding something which was now exposed. It was a blood-red worm that was shaped like a spoon. It seemed to be biting something.
It was biting a heart! It was a relatively small heart, which was probably half the size of a normal human heart. There seemed to be a big hole in it at the moment.
Yun Qingluo was in excruciating pain; her body was curled up like a ball as she rolled on the ground.
