Chapter 2423 The Person Behind The Scene
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Perhaps, the person behind the scene was someone who could freely travel through time. Having learned some powerful spells from his or her era, the individual probably decided to travel through time and space into the distant future and learned about the powerful spells that existed there.
Gu Xijiu frowned. With such an analysis, she felt that this person was somewhat like Long Fan.Her heart sank at the thought, and the more she pondered about it, the more she thought it was true.For example, Long Fan used very modern technology to mix the genes of a human with the genes of a beast in order to create a half-orc.
Furthermore, the young palace master, who was a subordinate of Yun Yanli, had once owned a group of half-orcs. Was this a coincidence?! Did Long Fan get reborn into this world after his death? Was it possible?
She remembered that Long Fan died with his spiritual power at level nine. The person behind the scene was close to or already at the level of Great Deity. Furthermore, this person seemed to be deliberately targeting the two of them.The strange part of it all was that this person was strong enough to fight with Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi. So why would he or she put in so much effort into setting up a trap? Why would he or she be so concerned with hiding in the dark?What was the purpose?
This person must know his or her own strength but seemed to prefer to use other people’s knives to take down enemies.
“What are you thinking?” Di Fuyi looked at her and asked.
Gu Xijiu did not want to hide her thoughts from him now, so she told him everything in her mind. Of course, she also storied about Long Fan’s past and her previous encounters with him. Some of her memories were somewhat vague because of Huang Tu’s presence in them, but she could still remember the general context.
Di Fuyi thought about her revelations for a moment. “This seems very similar to the way Luo Jiuchen dealt with the Divine Lord and Great Devil. During that time, Luo Jiuchen was a substitute lord, and he was constantly monitored. He would be punished if he was caught scheming, so he frequently used other people to kill his enemies. Of course, the person we are dealing with this time should not be him; the timing is not right.” Both of them analyzed the situation while still in the wizardry barrier. Although they had some clues right now, nothing was certain.
Meanwhile, in the vicinity, there seemed to be a sea of magma engulfing the remaining creatures. Breathing the air was rather impossible too. Even the inside of the wizardry barrier had started to become inhabitable. Gu Xijiu’s low spiritual power could not protect her, so she began to feel a little bit breathless.
The two of them had to think of a way to quickly get out of this place, even if they had to pay a high price. In the end, the Firmament Stone enlightened them with a way out. This method was somewhat ridiculous, however. “Devil King, the blood from your heart can break all the wizardry barriers in this world. You may want to try using it, but you will be injured…”
If it were not the last resort, the Firmament Stone would not tell them this method.
Gu Xijiu frowned. “No!”
She had worked so hard to get him safe and cured. She was not keen to see him injured again!
Di Fuyi thoughtfully looked at Firmament Stone. “Are you sure of this?”
“Of course; I am very sure!” the Firmament Stone vowed.
Di Fuyi did not say anything more and condensed a sharp and thin knife from his palm. The blade had a groove, and it was somehow similar to the knife which Yun Qingluo used to extract the blood from her heart. He started to take off his robe to start the process.
Gu Xijiu was shocked and reached out to grab his hand that held the knife. “Don’t! Maybe we can find another way. Let’s not rush!”
Di Fuyi lifted his arms and hugged her. “Don’t worry. I am confident.” He took the opportunity to seal her acupuncture point to avoid her from stopping him. Di Fuyidid not want her to see him drawing blood directly from his heart, so after he sealed her acupuncture point, he also covered her eyes with a cloth. “Be a good girl. Just give me a moment.”
