Scheming Against One Another (2)

Gu Xijiu treated the item like a treasure and was reluctant to use it. However, the best opportunity happened to present itself, and she could not hold back.
It was a good time to put the needles to use as Fan Qianshi never saw it coming.
It was truly a coincidence that both of them decided to turn hostile at the same time. Their brief moment of connection over wine had been completely shattered in an instant.
Gu Xijiu’s spiritual power became inaccessible, while Fan Qianshi, on the other hand, was greatly affected by the needles. His head went blank, while his body became numb. He could no longer keep his balance and started to sway as he walked.
She, too, was swaying a little but managed to take a few steps back to keep her balance.
Judging from the current situation, Gu Xijiu seemed to be on the advantageous side.
The pink candle dragon was impressed.
“Kill him! End him now!” The pink candle dragon hated the man thoroughly. It started chanting for his death.
Without further ado, it jumped straight into the attack with its mouth wide open in an attempt to crush the man into many tiny pieces.
“No way.” Gu Xijiu had to pull its lantern to stop it from biting him.
The pink candle dragon was totally bewildered. “Why can’t I kill him? This man is wicked. If we do not kill him now, there will be consequences.”
“He is now affected by the numbing drugs. If you bite him, you will be affected just the same.” Gu Xijiu then dragged Little Pink away.
The amount of drugs that she applied on the needles was able to take down an entire tyrannosaur. Just one tiny scratch on his skin would put the pink candle dragon down.
Convinced by her explanation, the pink candle dragon finally gave up on the idea of sinking its teeth into his skin, but it refused to stand aside and do nothing. Swiftly, it dispensed a layer of poisonous pink fog around Fan Qianshi from its mouth.
The poisonous fog was known to corrode all sorts of things with its high acidity.
Fan Qianshi was submerged in the pink, toxic air, but it was not able to do him any harm. Instead, it woke him right up from unconsciousness.
He opened his eyes and saw Gu Xijiu, who was standing close by. “I thought we agreed to work together. How could you attack me so sneakily?”
“You, too, did the same to me,” Gu Xijiu replied with heavy irony.
“What do you plan to do with me? Do you want to end my life?” Fan Qianshi locked his eyes to hers.
Gu Xijiu displayed a red sword before his eyes before answering, “You are right.”
“Are you really going to kill me, though?”
“Let’s find out.”
In an instant, the sword in Gu Xijiu’s hand rose into the air and aimed itself straight at Fan Qianshi’s neck. It was meant to be a deadly attack.
The sword was specially designed to kill evil people and spirits. She was confident that it would be a fatal hit, as Fan Qianshi was still unable to move. Even if she could not kill him, he would at least be critically injured to prevent him from playing any tricks.
As soon as she waved her sword down to attack, blood could be seen spilling everywhere as if a man had just been beheaded.
Gu Xijiu was quite surprised as everything happened way too easily.
“Mother, watch out!” Di Hao called out loud. A sword could be seen heading for her feet.
Alarmed, Gu Xijiu noticed the danger. She wanted to teleport away, but a pair of hands from the ground secured her ankles, making her unable to move. Di Hao aimed his sword at the hands, but it was not made of flesh. Unexpectedly, his sword made a clanging sound as if it crashed into some sort of metal and bounced back to him with great intensity. He almost cut himself with the sword.
Those hands did not stop right. With a strong pull, Gu Xijiu was shoved onto the ground hastily.
It was not utilizing the Ground Drilling technique, but in an instant, Gu Xijiu was already buried deep in the yellow sand.
She held her breath and made a few quick kicks to free herself, but it did not work. She then bent her body forward so that she could attack the hands that were still securing her ankles.
However, someone could be heard chuckling at her attempt. The hands on her ankles suddenly let go and pushed her feet upward.
If Gu Xijiu missed the hands, she would most probably have hit her own legs and became disabled.
Fortunately, she was able to stop herself in time. However, those hands from the ground seized the chance and threw her forward.
