While There Was Life, There Was Hope

Yun Yanli stormed into the golden house and quickly checked on the woman that he had held captive there.
Gu Xijiu was taking a rest on the bed. At ease, she looked carefree and was soundly asleep. Her lashes were like curtains, casting faint shades below her eyes. She looked just as fragile as ever and was still there. Was she real? Could she be a puppet as well?
Yun Yanli approached her to take a closer look. Abruptly, Gu Xijiu opened her eyes and was very surprised to see him. “You…” She said hoarsely in a sleepy voice. It sounded just like her! Even her facial expressions looked normal.
Yun Yanli was relieved that she was still there. With a calmer mind, he realized that it was rather unlikely for her to be able to escape. After all, the golden house was made with the Starry Formation, which he had learned from the mysterious voice in his dreams. No one, not even a Mighty Immortal, could possibly leave the house. Gu Xijiu was merely a Junior Immortal, and her spiritual power and physical strength were both restricted, so there was no way she could escape.
He took a look around the house, and a tiny crystal in the corner caught his attention. It was supposed to be a surveillance camera used to spy on Gu Xijiu, but it was broken.He then turned to look at Gu Xijiu, who was guilty of breaking it.
“I do not wish to be spied on when I rest.”
She had discovered his little trick. It was indeed a perverted thing to spy on a girl when she was alone in the house. Anyone would break the camera if the same thing happened to them.
Yun Yanli was quite embarrassed, so he made up an excuse and said that the surveillance was for her safety. Then, he quickly left.
‘Gu Xijiu’ sat up casually and let out a scornful laugh. Her impersonator was impressed by his acting.Luckily, he was able to get back in time. Otherwise, the whole plan would have been exposed. Nevertheless, it was odd that Yun Yanli would race into the place so abruptly.Had Gu Xijiu’s tracks been discovered by Yun Yanli so quickly? It did not seem likely. After all, if Yun Yanli discovered her, he would not have come into the golden house to check on her.
So, what made him suddenly search the place? Had Yun Yanli found out about Kun Xueyi’s escape? It was easy for them to disguise the guardians who were in the cell. However, it was difficult for Kun Xueyi to find a replacement for himself, as no one could possibly disguise as the mighty Kun.
Due to Zhu Duqing’s escape, Yun Yanli had sent his men to check on the guardians and soon discovered that they were both gone. This made him furious, and he ordered the entire city to be searched. The whole situation became tense.
Gu Xijiu wanted to go into the administrative center to look for Di Fuyi’s statue but was surprised by the dramatic turn of events that unfolded in the city. Learning from his earlier mistake, Yun Yanli had figured out that the most dangerous place was often the place that people would overlook, so he started by searching his own residence.
The man would have almost seen Gu Xijiu there. But luckily, she reacted quickly enough and avoided him. Yun Yanli had many men working for him. Some of them were specialized in hunting people down. Their majestic beings would help by sniffing out the scent of their victims. Although Gu Xijiu was eager to find the jade statue, she dared not do so publicly.
While there was life, there was hope. As long as she was free, there would still be plenty of chances for the rescue. Hence, she used her teleportation ability again and went straight back into the golden house. She wanted to free Kun Xueyi, but as soon as she arrived, she could immediately tell that Yun Yanli was approaching.
“Miss Gu, you have to go! I need to stay behind and keep him here. Don’t worry. He will not be able to tell the difference.”
