The prison was not too big, so the area was definitely confined within three miles. She should be able to sense her presence if Wu Qianyan was held captive here.
Had the Monster King concealed Qianyan’s aura? Or was she even in the prison at all to begin with? If she could not find her here, the only way left for her to find her servant was to raid the execution ground.
“Mister, this way please.” Gu Xijiu could hear the Monster King’s voice from around the corner as the sound of footsteps was slowly closing in.
Gu Xijiu lounged in the corner of the corridor and became invisible in the dark. Soon, a group of people came in.
The first one from the group was the Monster King. Next to him was a man in purple. They were followed by a group of soldiers that the Monster King trusted most.
Gu Xijiu gasped in disbelief as soon as she saw the man in purple. His entire face was concealed under a mask painted with ghostly features. She could only see his big, watery eyes shining brightly in the dark.
Could the man be Di Fuyi? His physique certainly resembled Di Fuyi’s. Why was he here? Hadn’t his relationship with the Monster King fallen through?
Nonetheless, it was possible that the man was not Di Fuyi. Maybe they happened to share similar features.
She stood in the dark, contemplating the situation. Abruptly, the man in purple threw her a quick glance, followed by a frown. Panicked, Gu Xijiu could not help but think if he had seen her.
No one had ever seen through her invisibility skill, so it was rather unlikely that the people in front of her could see her.It was only a quick glance before the man in purple looked away and continued walking next to the Monster King as if nothing had happened. Perhaps, she had overthought.
Gu Xijiu was curious about what would happen next, so she followed the group of people from behind.She then overheard the conversation that was exchanged through directed audios between the mysterious man and the Monster King. The brutal content of their conversation sent chills down her spine.
The Monster King asked, “Mister, can the princess really use Wu Qianyan’s lungs?”
The man in purple answered, “Well, you can choose to doubt me.”
“I trust you, mister. Without your miraculous skills that work wonders, my sister would be long dead. I was only asking because I was curious. I have not heard that replacing organs is actually possible.”
“Have you not heard about the case where an entire head was replaced? Haven’t I performed it to you before? The soldiers were still well and alive even after I exchanged their heads. If I can deal with a head replacement, replacing a pair of lungs would be considered child’s play.”
The Monster king heaved a sigh of relief and replied, “I know very well that you have magic hands that restore health. I trust you and your skills. After replacing my sister’s injured lungs, I shall need your help to swap the heads of my sister and the servant. Only then can my sister escape death.”
The man in purple glanced at the Monster King. “Are you planning to use the servant as a replacement for the princess by making her face the punishment on her behalf?”
The Monster King paused for a while but did not intend to lie. “Of course. I am only sacrificing the worthless servant for the precious life of the princess. She should feel lucky for this opportunity. Are you against it?”
The man in purple casually flicked his robes and gently replied, “My mission is to help people who are in need of my medical skills. I do not care about anything else. If you are able to pay me well, the princess will only be a patient of mine and not a prisoner.”
Relieved, the Monster King laughed out loud. “You are truly an understanding man.” He then added, “Wu Qianyan is already dying. Her sacrifice will be a great service to my sister. Her death will not be in vain.”
The man in purple calmly said, “I am only concerned that she will scream aloud later on the scaffold, thus defaming your good name. You should take the matter seriously.”
The Monster King gave him a serious look. “That is all right. You can mute her, so there is no way she can speak. She will have to accept her own death.”
