“The rate of my recovery has significantly deteriorated. I will not be able to restore my spiritual power to its original level, even with a year of practice.”
Di Fuyi suddenly stepped forward and grabbed her wrist. This sudden action stunned Gu Xijiu, who screamed. She was trying to break free from his grip, but her strength was weaker than a kitten to him right now.
Upon realizing that she was indeed weaker, Di Fuyi placed a finger on her vein and transferred some spiritual energy into her body. The process seemed to hurt Gu Xijiu’s veins somewhat. She bit her lips and asked gently, “What are you doing?”
Clearly, she was not at ease. Was the man angry with her? Was this his way of killing her?
Di Fuyi looked at her little pale face and asked, “What are you afraid of? Are afraid that I will kill you?”
Gu Xijiu bit her lips and did not speak. Nevertheless, one could easily tell from her eyes that she was fully alert.
Di Fuyi moved away from his eyes from her pretty face and faintly said, “If I want to plot against you, do you really think you will still be alive at this moment?”
Gu Xijiu raised her chin proudly and replied, “I am the God of creation; you can’t kill me.” This was somewhat true. If Gu Xijiu were about to be immortalized, she could not be killed by anyone. Even if he destroyed her body, her soul would live on.
Upon hearing her reply, Di Fuyi raised his eyebrows to her and asked, “Are you trying to challenge me?”
He suddenly pulled her by the hand, picked her up, and went out of the ice house. “Since you challenged me, perhaps we should settle this once and for all. I will not kill you myself, but maybe I will just throw you into the vortex of wind.”
Gu Xijiu was shocked by his reply! She would surely be turned into an ice sculpture! Perhaps, now was not the right time to be a hero. Therefore, Gu Xijiu immediately softened her stance. “Mr. Di, don’t be so childish. You let me go now.”
“Childish?” Di Fuyi questioned. Right then, he seemed to have started moving faster.
“Even if you throw me inside, I will not be freeze to death but will be turned into an ice sculpture. You can’t take advantage of me.”
Di Fuyi chuckled. “Take advantage of you? Little Divine Lord, do you know that my favorite thing in the world is to take advantage of people?”
“You can rest assured that if you are frozen into an ice sculpture, I will not leave you here to rot. I will come here after a year, and if you are still here, I will take you out and defrost you.”
Gu Xijiu almost wanted to curse the man! “Hey, a kid shouldn’t be so vicious; you have to be kind.”
“A kid?!” Di Fuyi was already moving as fast as the wind now.
Gu Xijiu saw the vortex in front of them and quickly grabbed his arm tightly and screamed, “I am wrong! You are not a child! Mr. Di, Brother Di, Hero Di… Don’t be so impulsive!”
Di Fuyi’s lips curved. He did not expect the Divine Lord to say something so hilarious! He finally stopped and looked at her. “I thought you would stay tough to the end.”
Nonsense! If she stayed tough, she would become an ice sculpture! She did not want to be left here to suffer for a year. She did not leave much time left, so a year was very precious.
Generally, Gu Xijiu knew that she was well respected in the six realms, so she tried to maintain a good image of herself in front of others. However, her hand was now forced by Di Fuyi, so her elegant perfect image could no longer be maintained.
She took a deep breath and spoke gently, “Mr. Di is the officer in the Monster Kingdom and National Master in the Celestial Kingdom. You have a great ability, and I admire you a lot. Can we go back to the ice house to discuss your request further?”
