Her Hobby (3)

Gu Xijiu was certainly relieved that they were all alive.
However, the boy was not doing quite well. His body was already half-frozen.
Gu Xijiu quickly teleported next to her son. She then placed her hand on his legs to transfer a steady stream of heat into the frozen lower-half of his body to melt away the ice.
After a while, Di Hao was able to move his arms and legs a bit. “Mother, you are able to move again,” he said excitedly while tugging her sleeves.
When the lady in white first approached Gu Xijiu, she looked like she was getting possessed. A layer of ice appeared and disappeared from her body from time to time. However, she had no consciousness. Her eyes remained shut all the time.
Anxiously, Di Hao rushed forward to help, but before he could even get close, half of his body became frozen.
Luckily, he realized in time that danger was real, so he started performing a spell to keep avoid being turned into an ice sculpture.
Nevertheless, he was only able to save his upper body. He tried to hit the lady in white with a strike but realized that his spiritual power was too depleted to cause any harm.
All he could do was to call out for his mother, but she did not seem to be able to wake up. Her face could be seen getting paler and paler, which indicated that her soul might be on the brink of leaving her body.
The pink candle dragon called out to her in high pitches as well, but none if its calling was heard.
Panicked, Di Hao realized that he had to try everything that he could. “Fan Qianshi, are you just going to let her die?” He tried to trigger him and, hopefully, get him to help.
Fan Qianshi stood very still. He only gave Di Hao a quick glance but did not answer anything.
It was at that point that Di Hao decided to address her by her real identity. He was desperate to save her.
Surprisingly, it worked like magic, and Gu Xijiu woke up in time.
Di Hao realized that the spell that Gu Xijiu used to break free from the illusion was a very magical and powerful one. It was not a skill that she could possess from her current level of spiritual power.
Needless to say, it was probably a skill that she acquired from her previous life as the Creation Deity.
Although Gu Xijiu had no memory of being the God of Creation, some things about her past and some odd techniques would always come to her mind in times of great danger.
That was a perfect example of it.
Di Hao was glad that she could break free from the illusion. His mother always managed to work wonders!
At present, Gu Xijiu patted Di Hao lightly on her head as she said, “Of course, I can always find a way to recover.”
Deep down, she was a little perplexed, though. Fan Qianshi had obviously restricted her movements when he sealed her acupuncture points. Therefore, when the lady first took control of her, she tried very hard to break free on her own but failed. Magically, she managed to free herself from Fan Qianshi’s restriction as she found a way to put a stop to the illusion. The injuries that she had suffered also seemed to subside.
She took a look at the sky and clouds only see the grey clouds in the distance. The sun was nowhere to be seen.
It felt as if she had come to the very southern edge of the earth.
Gu Xijiu looked into her storage bag and took out a fur coat along with a heavy cloak, one for herself and the other for Di Hao.
The garments were obviously two magical items. Both items looked rather bulky and loose at first, but as soon as they put the garments on, the sizes automatically adjusted to a perfect fit.
The pink candle dragon wanted a cloak, too. “Hey, master. Can I have one?”
Gu Xijiu hesitated a little before offering it a fur blanket. “Do you want this?”
The pink candle dragon took the blanket and covered its body right away.
“There is nothing for me, surely,” Fan Qianshi scornfully said.
No one answered him. In fact, Gu Xijiu pretended that he was not even there.
Gu Xijiu felt so much better after putting on the cloak. With a clear head, she started to recall many questions that she had, which were left unanswered.
