Guardian Jin was well aware of her vast knowledge in the field of medicine, and particularly in the use of poisons. The pills must be something precious that he could not possibly obtain from anywhere. Therefore, he accepted the gift happily and thanked her.
“All right, Master Xijiu. Let us go,” Zhu Duqing urged her again, somewhat impatiently.
Gu Xijiu took another look at Di Fuyi, who was still unconscious. She finally made up her mind and decided to leave with Zhu Duqing.
“Master Xijiu, where do you plan to go after this?”
“I will find a quiet place to practice and recover.” She needed to go back to heaven and from there, return to the Saha World again. According to the rules, she was not allowed to leave the Saha World for more than six months. It had already been two years. She could not help but wonder if the Saha World was in terrible chaos.
The only reason for her return to heaven was to recover so that she would be able to return to the Saha World at full strength. Her spiritual power was already at level nine. If she worked hard, she could achieve level ten in no time.
And when she finally achieved level ten, she would then face a catastrophe and ascend to heaven. That was the usual practice, but was it the same in the Shura World?
“I know a quiet place. It is a place with a strong spiritual aura.” Zhu Duqing knew about the Shura World very well, so he could show her many places that not many people knew about.
He was confident that not many knew about the secret place that he was about to show her, not even Di Fuyi- the one who was known to be knowledgeable about everything. Zhu Duqing was proud of himself for a moment. He continued to emphasize the advantages of different pieces of land for her to choose from. Confidently, he offered to take her wherever she wanted to go.
However, to his dismay, Gu Xijiu did not respond to his enthusiasm.
“This man is so reckless! How can he be meditating so deeply in such a dangerous place? He does not even have someone to guard him. Is this because his upbringing forced him to be fearless?” Her thoughts continued.
He kept saying that he cared about her injury, but instead of protecting her, he fell into a deep state of meditation. The scene was similar to a woman who had just given birth and left the operation room, only to realize that her husband was sleeping soundly outside.
She knew that he must be tired, but he would not be so deeply asleep while she was busy trying to save her life, right? It did not seem right. Di Fuyi would not do so. Was there something wrong?
“Master Xijiu, are you listening to me?” Zhu Duqing had to wave his hand to see if she was paying attention.
“I need to go back to have a look at Di Fuyi!” Gu Xijiu left him alone and teleported.
Zhu Duqing was shocked. They were almost at the end of the tunnel by that time. Even though he admired her teleportation ability, it was a burden for him, too, as he found it hard to keep up with her.
His complexion was good. His pulse was steady. His eyelids were sealed with no movement from his eyeball. He did not look unwell. However, there was no way she could wake him up. Gu Xijiu had been circling him for eight rounds and tried every possible way to wake him up. She even used her knowledge of acupuncture points and applied it between his thumb and index finger as well as the middle of his upper lip. He was still unresponsive, not even moving his lashes. It was like his soul had just left his body!
This should not be happening, no matter how focused he was on his meditation.
“Miss Gu, Yun Qingluo is in the same condition; she is not responding at all,” Guardian Jin came reporting about what he just found.
“Could their souls have left their bodies together to do something?” Zhu Duqing, who had made his way back, suggested.
“Did he tell you anything before he started meditating?” Gu Xijiu asked Guardian Jin.
