Substituting One Person For Another

Gu Xijiu locked her gaze on the man in purple and said, “Di…”
The man in purple quickly put one finger on his lips and signaled her not to mention his name. “Divine Lord, you may take your servant away now.”
Wu Qianyan reeled forward in shock and disbelief. She kneeled before Gu Xijiu and looked at her tearfully. Soon, she wiped away her tears and continued to touch her forehead on the ground repeatedly to worship Gu Xijiu.
Gu Xijiu pulled her up. “If I take her away, how are you going to answer to the Monster King? Do you need me to take you along?” She asked Di Fuyi. It would not be a problem at all for her to teleport away with two of them together.
Di Fuyi squinted his eyes at her. “I have my own plans. I can take her out even without your help.”
“Hmm? How?” Gu Xjiu was curious about his plans. The prison was heavily guarded, so it would be difficult for him to take a prisoner out when so many people were watching. Also, she did not know anyone else that was equipped with the ability to teleport.
Di Fuyi did not answer. Instead, he took out his storage bag and uncovered a person from within. The person lay unconsciously on the ground.
Gu Xijiu took a closer look and was shocked. “This is the Monster Princess!”
Di Fuyi calmly explained, “She is the one who should be punished with a thousand cuts.”
In an instant, he was already performing a spell on the Monster Princess to alter her looks. She now shared the same appearance as Wu Qianyan. It was so skillfully imitated that she was indistinguishable from the original, even her injuries looked the same.
Gu Xijiu finally had a grasp of his so-called plan. He was substituting one person for another.
She suddenly thought of the bag that Di Fuyi briefly showed her. It somehow reminded her of something that she once saw in the past. From her memory, she knew that someone had the same bag. However, it had been a long time since she last saw the bag.
She had lain dormant for too long to remember things from the past, butshe remembered that the bag could only store non-living items. Any living thing would suffocate to death in the bag.
“May I have a look at your bag?”
“No,” Di Fuyi rejected right away.
She had never been rejected in such a direct manner before. Gu Xijiu sighed. “Don’t worry. I am not trying to get my hands on your precious bag. It somehow reminds me of an old friend’s item, so I really just want to have a look.”
“An old friend?” Di Fuyi was intrigued. “Which old friend of yours?”
His eyes looked fiery and a little intimidating.
Gu Xijiu shook her head and frankly said, “An old friend from a very long time ago. You are too young to know anyone from those times. Let me ask you again. Where did you get the bag? The bag can only carry non-living items, right?”
Scornfully, Di Fuyi answered, “Is this an interrogation?”
“That is not what I meant. I really am just curious,” Gu Xijiu replied with a frown.
“Sorry, but I am not obliged to answer your curiosity,” Di Fuyi sternly said. A small, narrow-bladed knife then slowly appeared on his palm. He frowned as he took a look at the Monster Princess. “Divine Lord, do you know how to extract one’s pulmonary lobe from their lungs?” He threw the question at Gu Xijiu.
Confidently, Gu Xijiu folded her arms in a display of authority. “Of course.” As the creator of the universe, she could even make a human being from scratch if she was given enough materials. Extracting one’s pulmonary lobe was only a small matter.
Di Fuyi looked relieved. He then passed the knife to Gu Xijiu and said, “Please operate on her, Divine Lord.”
