Another One Bites The Dust

“Yes, I know a bit about it. You can answer my questions directly. There is no need for Hao Er to do any translation,” Gu Xijiu said firmly.
The pink candle dragon stared at her in disbelief. “Strange, indeed. I used to be invisible to the world, and no one could understand me. But suddenly, everyone is able to see and hear me clearly,” it murmured.
As the pink candle dragon was speaking, Gu Xijiu had been plucking away the thorns on its body.The creature was definitely grateful.
Delightfully, it rubbed its lantern against her palm before initiating a question and answer session. It told her anything that she wanted to know and almost everything that it ever knew. Perhaps, it was even more than what it had previously shared with Di Hao.
Troubled, Gu Xijiu did not expect this place to only have a way in and not a way out.
Nevertheless, she had to try to find a way. In fact, she refused to believe that there would be any wizardry barrier that she was unable to break. With that thought in mind, she clenched her fists as if ready to take on the challenge!
Also, she had not figured out how she was related to the God of Demons, who happened to look exactly like her. She suspected that the oddity of the wizardry barrier must be associated with the mysterious woman.
It did not take long for Gu Xijiu to remove all the thorns from the pink candle dragon’s body. Finally, a layer of cream was applied to soothe the wounds, and the pain subsided. But even with the pain gone, the candle dragon seemed to have its guard up all the time. It would pay more attention to its surroundings than before.
“What is the matter?” Gu Xijiu rubbed its forehead.
“It does not seem right. It has been a while since the black candle dragon had found us. If I am not mistaken, it is still able to trace my scent and find us.”
The black candle dragon had certainly made a strong impression on Little Pink.
“Why do you say so?”
The pink candle dragon proceeded to tell her about their ability to sense one another’s presence.
“Why didn’t you say so earlier?” Gu Xijiu was surprised to find out that the candle dragon’s had such a unique ability.
“I was in great pain at the time, and the thought did not cross my mind. Sorry!”
“It’s okay then.” Gu Xijiu stroked its head and gently added, “So, can you tell where it is right now?”
“I did not even bother to find out. I am too good for that guy,” the pink candle dragon proudly declared.
Gu Xijiu was perplexed by its reply, and she knew that she would have to explain her reasoning to the creature. “Silly, I need your help to sense its presence so that we can avoid it.” She was equipped with the ability to teleport, so if the black candle dragon was really coming their way, she could easily teleport them to safety and keep Fan Qianshi away.
At this point, her power was not on par with Fan Qianshi’s. Moreover, her two companions were injured. Hence, a head-on fight should be avoided at all costs.
The pink candle dragon understood her intention now, so it agreed to help.
After taking a moment to sense the black candle dragon’s presence, it responded with utter surprise, “I can sense that it is somewhere beneath the ground, but it is moving in a direction that is getting further and further away from us.”
“Have your senses failed you before?” Gu Xijiu had to make sure.
“No, at least not so far.”
Red-hot magma could be seen boiling with bubbles beneath the surface. Getting too close would roast and burn almost anyone to death.
Fan Qianshi was standing next to a stream of magma, along with Little Black. “Are you sure that they are hiding here?” It was the one who showed him the way.
Little Black firmly responded, “Yes.”
Fan Qianshi was quite puzzled, for he had not dealt with Gu Xijiu enough to know that she possessed the ability to survive in magma. However, he chose to believe that Little Black’s instruction was correct.
“Wait for me here. I will get down there to check it out.” Fan Qianshi gave Little Black a gentle tap before diving into the burning hot liquid.
Little Black’s emotionless face suddenly broke into a smile.
It was certainly unhappy with its master right now.
He promised to keep Little Pink alive but ended up going against his own words. The pink creature had to suffer the pain of being turned into a hedgehog!
Good for you Little Black!!👍😁But should you worry that when Your Master found out that you tricked him he will punish you again?!🤔😢
A***weeee!!!! Sweet Little Black candle dragon!

If Gu Xijiu had not arrived in time, Little Pink would have been long dead.
It seemed the fortune was on its side as the black candle dragon was now also irritated by his master’s betrayal as he attacked the pink candle dragon despite promising not to hurt it.
Additionally, its master had disregarded the trust that they had both built over the years by controlling the candle dragon against its will.
The man was ruthless to it, so it wanted to return the favor to him.
He insisted on finding Gu Xijiu, so it decided to guide him farther away instead.
Besides trying to get back at its master, Little Black also felt the need to protect the one it loved. The further away it brought its master, the safer she would be!
The thought of Little Pink being killed definitely worried it.
Meanwhile, the pool of magma in front of it now was vast. Fan Qianshi had spent a significant amount of time searching through the boiling hot magma. Little Black began to worry as there were no signs of movements on the surface of the magma.
Had the magma melted the man? Why hadn’t he emerged?
Logically speaking, Fan Qianshi would remain unharmed even if the magma suddenly became crazily hot. His Kung Fu was far too good to allow him to succumb to the heat, but the oddity of the desert shook its faith about his abilities. Many things could still go wrong.
Little Black only intended to mislead him and had no intention to take its master’s life. Therefore, the longer it waited, the more impatient it became.
Candle dragons were born with tough scales that were impenetrable by water or fire.
Little Black, however, was quite afraid of the heat. Hence, it refused to get too close.
But after waiting for some time, it wondered if it should go in and check on Fan Qianshi.
While it was still trapped in its anxiety, a man could be seen rising from the magma. Fan Qianshi was back, and definitely alive!
Little Black quickly hid its face behind its claws for a moment for it to regain its composure. It had to keep calm as if nothing had happened.
“They are not in there,” Fan Qianshi announced, while gracefully making his landing. “Little Black, what do you have to say for yourself?”
“Maybe you have not searched the place thoroughly enough,” Little Black calmly replied.
“I have searched everywhere; it was more than thorough. I have been to every corner and every stream. Honestly, did you lie to me?”
“I dare not, master. I would not do that,” Little Black answered in a flat tone that made it sound like it was still under the control of its master.
Triggered, Fan Qianshi gave its head a hard slap. “Stop acting; I saw how uneasy you were earlier. Lying to your master is a terrible act of disgrace!”
Little Black had nothing more to say, for its intention had been revealed.
At this point, it was letting go of all of its frustration. “So what if I lied to you? Haven’t you been lying to me as well? I will not show you the way to Little Pink. I cannot let you do any harm to her. I dare you to control me again!”
Fan Qianshi was speechless.
The creature had shown dogged determination not to change its attitude.
With that, Fan Qianshi turned around and left. “I can still locate them, even without your help.”
Soon, he returned to the surface and did not turn back. He created a Blood Butterfly on the spot. The butterfly fluttered gracefully and stopped by his fingertip. A scale was presented to the butterfly to take a sniff of the creature’s scent.
Just when the Blood Butterfly was about to take flight, Little Black reached out to it hastily and shattered it into pieces.
“How dare you rebel against me?” Fan Qianshi cursed.
“I will not let you get Little Pink into trouble!” Little Black exclaimed in a fury.
Fan Qianshi calmly replied, “I can create as many of these butterflies as I want. Destroying one will not stop anything.”
With a flip on his wrist, another Blood Butterfly was created on his fingertip.
“When will you ever let it go?” Little Black clenched its claws in frustration.
