Could Di Fuyi Be The Help She Needed?

Although Gu Xijiu was dominating the battle against Yao Xingye, she was not entirely comfortable during the fight. Her body had never stopped aching. During the encounter, she realized that another visit to the glacier was inevitable.
Gu Xijiu could no longer locate the glacier even though she used the same path as before. She remembered the way, but it did not lead her to the desired destination.
For a moment, she wondered if a wizardry barrier hid the glacier. Nonetheless, she dismissed the thought quickly because no wizardry barrier could possibly escape her eyes. If the glacier had been in a wizardry barrier, she would have easily noticed it before.
She lingered around the hills where she had originally exited the place. However, even after a thorough search, she still could not find her way in. Alas, she gave up.
Gu Xijiu suspected that the glacier was either mobile or would only appear at a particular time. Since she did not have other information, she had no hope of returning to the glacier for cultivation.
Could Di Fuyi be the help she needed? But even if he could help, would he agree to help? The man was beyond calculative, so Gu Xijiu was slightly reluctant to meet him or to have anything to do with him.
She decided to let things flow naturally. There was not much time left for her, anyway, so it did not matter anymore if she got to live another day or two. Her years of cultivation had trained her to reconcile herself to different circumstances. Life or death did not matter too much.
Meanwhile, the magnificent views in the mountains made her linger a little bit more in the woods.The place was rather quiet today as only animals were present in the solitary woodland. Not a single woodsman was around.
Deep within the valley, there was a garden of blossoming flowers. The hills were ablaze with tiny white blossoms. From afar, the entire area of white blossoms looked like a large fluffy cloud. It surely was a feast for the eyes.
Gu Xijiu excitedly walked towards the land of white flowers for a pleasant stroll. However, a sudden gentle sound of running water caught her attention, and she hurried towards the sound of the river. White flower petals stayed afloat on the gurgling water, like flocks of white ducklings flowing down the stream.
At the end of the stream, there was a natural lake. Strangely enough, these petals were gathered around a dark hole in the middle of the pond. Apparently, the running water was directed to flow right into the hole.
The water was as clear as crystal without any sorts of contamination. As it was rare to find such a clean lake, Gu Xijiu lookedas if she had just found a hidden treasure. Surely, she would not leave without first dipping in the water.
There was no one around, not even an animal. Hence, it was the perfect place for her to go for skinny-dipping. She removed her robes and went into the lake. The water was slightly chilly, but the cold never bothered her anyway.
She followed the flow and started swimming across the pool. Much to her surprise, she realized that the spiritual energy of the water was even stronger than in the Tianyin Valley.
Immediately convinced, she decided that it was the place for her cultivation. The lake was a deep one, like a bottomless pit. She used her spiritual power to sense the presence of any ferocious beings that were hidden in the unseen depths, but there was nothing that caught her attention. It was clear to her that this was the right place for her.
The minor inconvenience of the lake was its clear water. Her naked body could be seen entirely from above the water. Fortunately, there was no one around. So, she stayed submerged in the water with her legs crossed and cast spells on her fingertips as soon as she began her cultivation.
The serenity did not last long before a sudden splash of water caused the water around her to swill. Astonished, she quickly looked around.
Someone could be seen rising dramatically from the depths of the pool. However, she could only see the person’s silky black hair from the back. The person noticed her presence and quickly turned around. Their eyes met abruptly.
