Will Not Break The Promise 4
The two candle dragons were fighting valiantly as if they encountered a ferocious enemy. The battle with Di Fuyi was so intense to the point where dust had covered the sky above them and made it rather dark.
Even with Di Fuyi’s current abilities, it was tough to deal with these two candle dragons at once. He tried to escape several times but was blocked by them. These candle dragons were already seasoned fighters and knew how to apply different techniques in order to keep their prey in their grasps. Therefore, Di Fuyi could not find an opportunity to escape the battlefield for a while.
Gu Xijiu frowned slightly at the situation. With her current abilities, she could not cope with two candle dragons. Furthermore, even if she wanted to help him using her teleportation ability, it was difficult to get him while he was moving about, so she had to act smartly.
The candle dragons had been chasing him around the place for some time but could not land any blows to Di Fuyi, thanks to his steadfast agility. They were a little annoyed and raised their head and howled for a moment. Just then, the place had suddenly turned into a place as dark as night.
Swiftly, a candle dragon took the opportunity to attack Di Fuyi while the conditions were changing!
Di Fuyis did not see the attack coming, and by the time he felt that a gust of wind had come to his face, it was already too late to hide.
He made up his mind and decided to take the risk to hide in its stomach. Just then, another gust of wind swooshed past him, and his arm was grabbed! He was shocked and subconsciously wanted to push away, but he also heard the howling of the candle dragons in the distance, which made him change his mind.
Teleportation! He narrowed his eyes to try to see the identity of the person that reached out to him. Although he could not see the person, he had already guessed the identity of the other party.
After one teleport, the wind and howling had stopped.
Di Fuyi stepped on the ground to try to sense his surroundings. Although he still could see what was around him, he could smell the fragrance of the plants and the unique scent of the person near to him.
He forcefully withdrew his hand from her grasp and stepped back as he uttered, “Thank you for helping me, Divine Lord.”
This was their first encounter after two years and five months. It was undoubtedly their first dialogue as well. Di Fuyi’s words were polite, but his tone was cold.
Gu Xijiu replied awkwardly, “No need to mention. You are welcome…” She was somewhat not used to his politeness, so her reply came out a little weird.
Although she did not know why, Gu Xijiu had an indescribable feeling of grievance that twitched in her chest, making her eyes somewhat irritated.
Fortunately, it was absolute darkness around the place, so they could not see each other. Therefore, Gu Xijiu did not have to hide her expression.
Two years ago, her first reaction would be to quickly explain the incident that happened during the wedding when she ran away. But now… She only had a month left to live. The countdown was real, so why would she explain herself? It would only burden him. Therefore, she smiled and started a topic that she thought would not trigger any sadness. “Why are you here? Are you addicted to eating the eggs of candle dragons?”
Di Fuyi remained silent for a moment before faintly asked, “Divine Lord, is this an inquiry?”
Gu Xijiu was speechless. Perhaps, she could just pretend that she did not ask!
The two continued to stand opposite each other and remained quiet for some time. Although she could not see him, she could definitely sense the strong aura around him and was inexplicably flustered.
Just when she was trying to find another topic to cut the tension between them, there was something placed in her hand. It was an egg the size of a basketball!
Gu Xijiu was stunned. She blurted out, “So you did come to steal the egg!”
“This one is for you to thank you for your help.” Di Fuyi sounded indifferent as he passed her an egg.
“You don’t have to be so polite…” In fact, Gu Xijiu did not think that she had done much.
“I don’t want to owe you any kindness.” Di Fuyi interrupted her, but this time he sounded colder.
Gu Xijiu did not reply this time. The candle dragon egg in her hand was like a hot yam.
Di Fuyi decided to continue, “Our agreement is due in a month. I only hope that you will not break the promise again.”
Gu Xijiu looked down at the ground as she replied, “Rest assured, this time, I will not break the promise!”
“Good! I will choose to believe in you once again. You warned me that when we cancel the mentoring arrangement, there will be a catastrophe in the form of thunderbolts. Therefore, this candle dragon egg may help you. It is my compensation to you for your troubles.”
