Chapter 2793 Don’t Worry, I Am Not Sending You Away
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Gu Xijiu was smart enough to link everything that happened together in an instant. This man must have noticed that the princess was the culprit for a while now. Knowing that she would most likely be interested in handsome men, he needed to trigger her jealousy by doing things that were completely out of her expectation.
Back in the restaurant, he purposely showed his kindness to the woman who was seen as hideous by the public. The princess had, as expected, become utterly jealous and thus initiated a series of brutal remarks and actions.
Feng Jiayi knew very well that everything was going as he planned, so he notified the victims’ families in advance. The Monster King was not the only one who had received the invitation. The princess needed to be exposed in the eyes of the public and punished in a way that she deserved.
Gu Xijiu studied Feng Jiayi for a while and was impressed by his perception and wit, even though he was only a young man.
“I am sorry,” Feng Jiayi suddenly apologized.
Gu Xijiu cleared her throat to dissolve the awkwardness. Now that he had apologized, she should let the matter go. After all, the princess deserved it.
“I…” A sudden grasp by her wrist interrupted her.
Baffled, she had never encountered such disrespect in her life. She wanted to push his hand away, but he pulled her toward him instead. “This is not the place to talk. Follow me!”
Soon, Gu Xijiu’s vision turned black! The man had already initiated the Ground Drilling technique.
Gu Xijiu was still perplexed. “What are you doing?”
“Don’t worry. I am not going to send you away.” Feng Jiayi did not look back and continued drilling.
Gu Xijiu knew that he was not strong enough to hurt her. Stirred by curiosity, she decided to let him guide the way.
After a moment, Gu Xijiu noticed that something was not quite right. Usually, Ground Drillings would only cover a relatively short distance. One would usually use it for a hundred miles at most.
Under normal circumstances, one would need to head back up to catch a breath every hour. Not even a Great Deity’s physique could handle the harsh underground conditions. However, Feng Jiayi was able to use the Ground Drilling technique for over six hours straight without stopping for a rest.
Also, his speed was impressive. Gu Xijiu assumed that they had both traveled for at least six hundred miles in total.
Fortunately, Gu Xijiu was the creator of the universe. Even with her power being greatly depleted, Ground Drilling would not pose any danger to her. She was able to survive all day being underground. However, the young man was obviously not as strong as her. How did he manage to survive all day?
Icy peaks and snow-capped mountains rose up from the land amid the white snow. From where they stood, they could see a glacier that had been around since forever. She looked up and was impressed by the mighty mountain that had its icy summit above the clouds.
Gu Xijiu did not expect to see snow as soon as they resurfaced. At the same time, cold winds blew by, swirling snowflakes in the air. She could not help but shudder in the cold. For the first time, she thought that her clothes might be a little too thin for the weather.
She took a look at Feng Jiayi. His clothes were obviously not made for the cold, but he did not seem to be bothered. There he stood, tall and straight, seemingly unconcerned by the icy peaks and the brutal winter winds.
He opened up an umbrella to shelter her from the snow. “Are you feeling cold?” He fixed his eyes on her pale white face as he asked her.
Gu Xijiu took a deep breath and rubbed her numb hands together for warmth. “I am not afraid of the cold. Why did you take us here?” She steadied herself, and calmly remarked.
Feng Jiayi sized her up before continuing, “If I am not mistaken, your spiritual power is less than the strength of a Golden Immortal now. Why do you have to keep playing tough?”
Astonished, Gu Xijiu looked at him with a rather spurious smile. “Hmm?”
Underneath her sleeves, she quietly cast a spell on her fingertips. So, if something went wrong, she could easily escape.
