“Miss Gu, rest assured. Tian Meimei and the monster he has captured can communicate telepathically. He can also summon the creature at any time. Even if Lion accidentally falls into the swamp, Tian Meimei can summon it back.”
Gu Xijiu was relieved to learn that. However, she still had another question. “Miss Feng, are you and your red snake also connected telepathically? Where is it now? Did it find the jade statue?”
Feng Ruhuo coughed. “I am not a creature trainer, so I am not connected to my snake. Nonetheless, Xiao Chi is brilliant. It can use the Ground Drilling technique if it needs to do so. After entering the city, it will split up with other snakes. As long as either snake finds the jade statue, it will come back to me to report it.”
“Is there a chance that it could get caught?”
“No, Xiao Chi is vigilant and is very stealthy. No one can catch it.” Feng Ruhuo was very confident in her snake’s ability.
Gu Xijiu nodded in acknowledgment and did not ask any further. She knew Yun Yanli was a very cautious person. And, since he already suspected that the jade statue was Di Fuyi, he would naturally hide the statue in a very secret place. She guessed that there would make a lot of wizardry barriers guarding it as well. Therefore, it was very unlikely that they would find it.
Nevertheless, if the snakes are unable to find it in advance, Gu Xijiu’s backup plan was to sneak in on the day of the wedding and wait for the opportunity to save him. Since Yun Yanli would place the jade statue in a public place, and her chances of stealing it would be the highest.
Knowing Yun Yanli well, Gu Xijiu was certain that he would set up a number of traps nearby, waiting for the people from the devil world to be captured. However, sometimes, even a trap was an opportunity.
Gu Xijiu and the team stayed up all night, but the snakes did not return. Apparently, something went wrong! Feng Ruhuo blew a flute to summon the red snake, but nothing came back even after an hour.
Tian Meimei sighed. “Eighth Sister, I had offered to help you train it and even establish a binding agreement with it, but you still didn’t agree. Now, is there even a way for you to retrieve it?”
Feng Ruhuo was concerned about the well being of her pet. Therefore, Tian Meimei’s remarks made her frustrated. “It is none of your business! I prefer my creature to be free and comfortable with me. It makes them more independent! Forcing it to be submissive to me will only make it a dumb bird thathas to wait for instructions from its master. It would not even have its own opinion. I refuse to treat Xiao Chi this way!”
Tian Meimei was speechless by her response. In fact, his creatures that their own thoughts, but it was true that they could not act without his orders.
Feng Ruhuo was a very impulsive person. Since her snake had not returned, she wanted to go to the city to look for it. Just as she was about to head off,Gu Xijiu grabbed her arm. “Don’t be too hasty!”
“Miss Gu, I must find Xiao Chi. If I don’t act quickly, it might be eaten!”
“Are you familiar with the facial disguise technique?”
“No, I am so beautiful, why do I need to disguise myself?” Feng Ruhuo raised her eyebrows high.
Gu Xijiu made her sit on a boulder before continuing the conversation. “Your beautiful face is too conspicuous. You will attract a lot of unnecessary attention, and it will be difficult for you to find your snake. It will be much more efficient for you to keep a low profile.”
In less than 15 minutes, the charming Feng Ruhuo had now become a common old aunty in the neighborhood. Gu Xijiu also disguised herself in a similar outlook. The two of them now looked like a pair of good girlfriends.
Right after that, Gu Xijiu teleported into the city with Feng Ruhuo.
