She would be willing to risk her life for her people.However, selfishly speaking, Di Fuyi meant more to her than all of her people combined. Especially because of his current state, she did not want to put Di Fuyi in danger just because of the villagers.
Di Fuyi knew her well enough to understand her thoughts. He held her hand to reassure her, “Don’t worry. I know ways to escape.”
Gu Xijiu finally had a glimpse of hope. “How?”
Di Fuyi pressed his finger against her lips and said, “The heavenly secret cannot be revealed. Baby, just do as I say when the time comes.”
Gu Xijiu could finally heave a sigh of relief. She pushed his hand away and teased, “Stop trying to touch me all the time. There could be surveillance devices in here.”
Delighted, Di Fuyi twisted her words and said, “Does that mean I am allowed to touch you if there are no surveillance devices around?” The man would flirt her at every chance that he had.
Gu Xijiu ignored him and continued to check every corner of the carriage. Meanwhile, Di Fuyi was smiling in the carriage. Her actions showed how much she cared for him.
“There is no need to check. This is Yun Yanli’s personal carriage. I know he is a prudent man, but he surely will not put himself under surveillance.”
“It is hard to tell. This man may have come prepared. If he was willing to surrender his personal carriage to us, there might be something here. It is better to look around and be prepared.”
Like an expert, Gu Xijiu searched the entire carriage thoroughly, not leaving any stoned unturned. The result proved that Di Fuyi was right. There were no surveillance devices in the carriage. She was finally relieved. “Lie down.” She turned her attention back to Di Fuyi.
Di Fuyi was caught by surprise. “Hmm?”
“Let me have a look at your injury.” She was worried about him and wanted to check his injury earlier, but she was worried that it might reveal Di Fuyi’s weakness to his enemy.
Di Fuyi hesitated. “There is no need to check. The wound is fine. When my spiritual power returns, I will meditate and get back to full health.”
Gu Xijiu could not care less about what he said. She went on top of him and pushed him down. “I do not believe what you have said. I need to see it for myself.”
Di Fuyi said nothing more. He could not fight with her at that moment, so he decided to stay put and let her do whatever she wanted to do. “Baby, are you trying to take advantage of me when I have no strength to resist?” He teased.
Gu Xijiu took off his robes, so the incident seemed inappropriate. “Stop messing around. I have had enough of your sweet talk. Do you really think that I will be fooled so easily?”
Di Fuyi was speechless. He was indeed trying to divert her attention so that she would not examine his body. He had underestimated her resolve to make sure that he was all right. Gu Xijiu finally had a clear view of the wound on his chest and gasped in surprise!
The wound was not treated at all! In fact, there was a swollen piece of flesh dangling on his chest. The condition explained why he could barely stand on his own. But, Di Fuyi had already applied the best medicines that he had on the wound. Why would it worsen?
“The wound looks a little gruesome, but it is really not a big deal,” Di Fuyi tried to comfort her as soon as he noticed her pale face.
The method he had used to retrieve the blood from his heart would definitely leave a bad wound. To make things worse, he had to support a wizardry barrier around them while attempting to retrieve the blood. The combination of the two was clearly beyond his current capabilities. Furthermore, he even had to use his spiritual power to break the wizardry barrier that Yun Qingluo had set up to ambush them. It was likely that the poisonous air around the swamp might have infected the wound as well, making it worse than any of them had anticipated.
Without sufficient spiritual power, he could not drive the toxins out of his body. Therefore, all he could do at that moment was to endure the pain. Luckily for him, his body was trained to be resistant to toxins. Moreover, he already consumed an antitoxin pill to suppress the effects of the poison. Otherwise, things would have been a lot worse.
