Danger Threatened At Every Corner (3)

Di Fuyi pondered for a moment before putting the diamond on her palm. “You can do the same,” he said.
Gu Xijiu examined the diamond, but could not find anything special about it. She then started to move her finger on the diamond, but could barely leave any mark on it. Perplexed, she looked at him for guidance. Di Fuyi gave her a delightful smile before applying a layer of cream on the diamond. After a while, he gave it back to her. “Try again.”
Gu Xijiu tried again and managed to carve the diamond into the shape of a flower. Startled, she asked, “What cream did you apply? How does it soften the diamond?”
“It is not actually a diamond, but a lookalike. Without the cream, it looks no different from a diamond. Once applied, the cream will completely unmask its true property.” He continued, “I wanted to show it to you for fun; never knew that it would get us out of a problem.”
They continued their conversation while indulging in the meat of the Blue Phoenix. Gu Xijiu insisted that Di Fuyi should have a more substantial portion of it, so he did. After that, Di Fuyi asked Gu Xijiu to meditate, as he finally had the time to look after her. However, Gu Xijiu thought that Di Fuyi should be the one to mediate first. He was, after all, the one with the injury.
Di Fuyi had the meat before, and it did not trigger any reaction, so he did not see the need to meditate. However, he felt different this time. His body was boiling, and there was an apparent rush in his blood circulation. This was how a normal body would react upon consuming the meat of a mythological beast. The lack of reaction he had before must be due to the strong foundation of his spiritual power. The meat could hardly trigger any reaction because his spiritual power was already greater than what the bird had to offer. Now that his spiritual power had been greatly depleted, he could finally feel the power of the bird.
Di Fuyi made some calculations and noticed that the meat would eventually increase his spiritual power by a tenth, which was quite remarkable progress. He took a look at Gu Xijiu and noticed her crimson face. She needed to meditate.
Without wasting any time, he pulled her closer and sat her down. “Listen to me; you should start first. I can meditate after you have fully absorbed the energy.”
Gu Xijiu could not argue with him, so she did as told. The transfer of energy would take at most an hour. If the Purple Cloud Mushroom could not trigger any reaction for Di Fuyi, then the half of the bird should be nothing to him. Moreover, he was the one who had the bird, so he should know the effects better than her. He was confident that he would be fine. Therefore, Gu Xijiu proceeded to meditate.
She did not meditate for long, however. About 20 minutes later, a sense of danger took over her mind. She started to panic as if something dangerous was about to unfold. Abruptly, she opened her eyes and realized that there was another man in the carriage. The man was not facing her, but she could immediately recognize him just by looking at his back.
It was Yun Yanli! His palm was flashing with streaks of white light that were as sharp as a blade. He was about to give Di Fuyi a head-on strike. Di Fuyi was sitting there, helplessly. His veins seemed to be visible all over his body while his face was completely drenched in sweat. He locked his eyes on Yun Yanli, but could barely say anything.
Before Yun Yanli could deal him a blow, Gu Xijiu quickly interrupted, “What are you doing?”
Yun Yanli froze and slowly turned his head around to face her. “Xijiu, you are awake,” he said with a tight smile. His smile could not hide the murderous look in his eyes. It was appalling.
Gu Xijiu acted as if she did not notice anything. She returned the smile and said, “Yes, I have finally absorbed all of the power from the meat. What are you doing here in our carriage? And, what is wrong with Di Fuyi?
