A Racoon For A Prince (3)
Was she sealed away in a big boulder?
From Di Fuyi’s perspective, what he could see was indeed just an ordinary boulder. After stitching up Di Hao’s wound, he placed him on a large rock to rest.
Then, he decided to take a stroll around the place, and coincidentally stood in front of the boulder where Gu Xijiu was trapped.
This rock was no different from the other rocks in the area. It was about half the height of an average person and felt cold and hard when he touched it.
‘Gu Xijiu’ knew that he could not see anything abnormal with it, so she acted smug to Gu Xijiu. Nevertheless, her facial expression showed that she was concerned. “Fuyi, how is Hao Er?” The imposter asked in a kind and gentle way, making her sound like a loving mother.
“He is okay. Fortunately, I managed to treat him in time. Nevertheless, he needs to rest for about an hour before he can move again.” Di Fuyi came to her and said, “Come here. Let me check on your injuries. Can you show them to me?”
Gu Xijiu’s eyes flashed a little before she stretched out her hand and let him examine her pulse.
Due to her immense skill, her rate of recovery was excellent. Although Di Fuyi had recently stabbed her avatar and caused her great distress, the pain had already subsided by now.
However, to play along with her earlier lie, she secretly exercised her spiritual power to hurt a vein of her body.
Therefore, when Di Fuyi checked her pulse, her eyes purposely focused on the stone that Gu Xijiu was sealed in to see her ashen face. The demon was very satisfied with the result and made it clear to Gu Xijiu.
In order to prevent any suspicion, she quickly returned her attention to Di Fuyi and leaned against him as she complained, “Fuyi, I am so tired…”
Di Fuyi wrapped one arm around her and said, “Lean on me.”
‘Gu Xijiu’ would not turn down the opportunity. As she laid on him, she could briefly smell his body’s scent. She closed her eyes and subconsciously muttered, “It has been so many years… Yet, the fragrance on your body has not changed.
Di Fuyi looked at her and said, “Hmm?”
‘Gu Xijiu’ mumbled, “Fuyi, I really miss the smell of your body… Finally, I can smell it today.” She buried her face in his arms as she continued, “I will never leave you again!”
Di Fuyi remained silent.
His eyes flashed slightly as he took her other hand to check her pulse. He casually said, “The vein leading to your heart is injured. Who hurt you and Hao Er?”
“It was Fan Qianshi! He caught Hao Er and tortured him… Fortunately, I came in time…”
“It is really him! Where is he now?” Di Fuyi swiftly surveyed the place but did not see Fan Qianshi.
“When he hurt Hao Er… I was furious and wanted to kill him! In a desperate attempt to kill him, I seemed to have subconsciously learned a new skill! However, I think the attack took a toll on my body, so as a result, my heart got injured. Fortunately, I managed to injure him seriously.” The lie seemed airtight.
Di Fuyi heaved a sigh of relief and held her hand. “It’s fortunate that you and Hao Er are alright. As for the bastard, Fan Qianshi, I will end him sooner or later!”
“Yeah.” Gu Xijiu’s inner demon was satisfied by the response she received. She could not help but take another glimpse at the big boulder again, where Gu Xijiu was sealed.
Di Fuyi looked at their surroundings and asked, “What happened to this desert? Do you know?”
“It is probably the array formation set by Fan Qianshi. As you know, he is the God of Creation; therefore, it is possible for him to turn the desert into a lethal array.” All the blame was conveniently placed on Fan Qianshi.
It became clear to ‘Gu Xijiu’ that Di Fuyi was happy with her explanations. He did not seem to doubt her at all.
The two of them chatted for a while, and Di Fuyi was certainly curious about the skills that she had acquired on her own.
‘Gu Xijiu’ did not mind showing him as she wanted him to know that she was now stronger.
