Danger Threatened At Every Corner

Di Fuyi leaned against the table as he casually replied, “You’re hilarious! Why should we show it to you? Shouldn’t you be ashamed of your sudden intrusion?”
Yun Yanli was speechless. He was not expecting Di Fuyi’s brutal and straightforward reply. His expression clearly showed that he was a little offended. “Prince Nianmo, we are on the same team now! We have to work together to ensure our safety. The attacks from the Bloody Bats are getting more frequent now. Obviously, they are coming after one of your magical items. For our safety, it is better if you to show it to me so that we can examine it together,” he said in an icy tone.
“How did you know they were coming after one of our magical items?” Di Fuyi added.
“These Bloody Bats are attracted to powerful sources of spiritual power. They were clearly chasing after your carriage, so you must have been in possession of something valuable to them.”
Di Fuyi gave him a sharp look in the eyes as he said, “I did not know that these bats would go after spiritual power. Using this information in relation to the blood rain, are you suggesting that the bats will attack the cities because they have their own sources of spiritual power as well?”
Yun Yanli’s expression changed a little. He had obviously revealed a little too much information to Di Fuyi. Not many people knew about the characteristic of the Bloody Bats. Perhaps only him and Yun Qingluo.Even his closest follower knew nothing about the secret. It was rather unusual for him to have given away such a secret so carelessly. Was he being manipulated?
Di Fuyi had the bloodline of the celestial beings and devils, so the Kung Fu that he possessed was a complicated mixture of both. He must have learned a method to manipulate his enemies into revealing their secrets. At least, that was what Yun Yanli believed.
The man was very frustrated at that point. His fists were clenched tightly in his sleeves.
Di Fuyi looked at him smilingly and said, “Mr. Yun seems to know quite a number of things. What are the other characteristics of the Bloody Bats? I hope you do not mind to share the information with us, Mr. Yun. As you said before, our safety is the priority, so perhaps with the information, we can discuss our strategies to fight them later.”
Yun Yanli could no longer hold back his irritation. “I asked my question first.”
Di Fuyi glanced at him as he continued, “Is it mandatory to answer your question first? Mr. Yun, as you said, we are on the same team now, so we should share everything we know and plan the next strike on our common enemy. Let us do it this way. You tell me about the secrets of the Bloody Bats, and I will share with you the magical item that attracted them. Although I will be the one who is giving up more than you, I am generous enough to share. I do not want to bother myself arguing with the likes of you.”
Yun Yanli clenched his fists repeatedly under his sleeves to vent her anger silently. He wanted to smash Di Fuyi’s head right there and then. Overwhelmed, he put his fingers togetherto cast a spell, but an item that Di Fuyi held in his hands caught his attention.
The man was holding a ring that was embellished with a gem that glistened with seven colors. Di Fuyi was carving the gem with a finger. It used to be in the form of a hemisphere but was now carved into the shape of a rose using his nail. Every intricate detail of the petals was almost lifelike.
Yun Yanli could recognize the material with a single glance. It was the toughest diamond that was ever discovered in the world. Yet, Di Fuyi was carving the diamond with his hand! Yun Yanli knew very well that he was not capable of doing the same. Therefore, he decided to hold back on the spell.
The lack of patience in small matters would always upset great plans. He was not sure that he could kill Di Fuyi, so he should not act recklessly. There were still many opportunities ahead of them. In fact, Yun Yanli was going to host a grand dinner in the city to plot against his enemy. However, those were only his thoughts for the time being. He let out a smile to conceal his murderous thought. “As far as I am concerned, these Bloody Bats are fond of blood and are very poisonous. They like to go after the powerful sources of spiritual power. The place where they gather is where the source of spiritual power lies.”
“Does every city have a powerful source of spiritual power?” Gu Xijiu asked.
