The Evil Consort Above An Evil King Book 4 Chapter 2511
Gu Xijiu's main concern was only for the jade statue. She wanted to make sure that nothing happened to Di Fuyi. As the catastrophe was for her, she decided to put Di Fuyi somewhere safe that was not near her.
In the distance, a loud crashing sound could be heard. However, it did not seem to be from the catastrophe. Gu Xijiu's expression changed as she realized what had happened. Yun Yanli and his men must have broken through the wizardry barrier! It was only a matter of time before he and his men would be here.
She did not have time to think about how the wizardry barrier was broken. She had to make sure that Di Fuyi was safe, so she took the jade statue and plunged into the lake. Upon returning to the shore, the jade statue was gone, and only Gu Xijiu was present. She knew that she had to distance herself from the lake, but just as she had come up from the water, a bolt of lightning headed her way and seemed to cover her entire body. It also seemed to have lifted her in midair.
Her clansmen- Guardian Jin, Guardian Hua, and Kun Xueyi, along with Yun Yanli, had already entered the valley. Therefore a thousand pairs of eyes witnessed the mindblowing sight.
Gu Xijiu was being pulled into the sky by an enveloping circle of light as a lightning bolt struck her. Yun Yanli gripped his fingers to prepare to do something. He waved his sleeves to cast a spell but held back.
He was certainly familiar with this kind of catastrophe and could easily help in this situation. However, something made him hesitate.
With an expressionless face, he ordered his subordinates, "Go in and don't let anyone escape. If you can catch them alive, then let them live. Otherwise, kill them all!" Since God had given him this rare good opportunity, he naturally had to grasp it. He should no longer show benevolence to this woman!
Thousand of soldiers answered and rushed into the inside of the valley.
It was chaotic. Although there were many fierce beasts in the valley, they could not stop these elites that had broken in. The soldiers killed the beasts so easily as though they were chopping vegetables. By chance, they had even killed the king of the beasts. Therefore, the remaining beasts fled in fear as Yun Yanli and his people marched straight into the valley.
Although the entrance to the valley was hidden, Yun Yanli was an expert in mechanisms and easily found the way in. Finally, they had made their way into the hidden paradise. Gu Xijiu's clan was no match for the masters that Yun Yanli had brought along with him; they were all caught almost instantly.
Meanwhile, Gu Xijiu was still busy facing a catastrophe in the sky, and could not fly down to protect her people. Instead, she found herself seriously injured after being distracted by the need to protect the people that mattered to her.
In the end, Kun Xueyi knew that they had to make a run for it. He only managed to take Guardian Jin with him as he plunged into the lake and disappeared. Unfortunately, Guardian Hua was seized.
Gu Xijiu experienced six lightning strikes and had indeed become an immortal. However, due to obvious worries in her heart, she did not ascend. She merely fell from the sky.
Yun Yanli rolled his sleeves up to catch her and hugged her in his arms. He looked at her and smiled. "Xijiu, congratulations on your advancement! I am pleased."
Gu Xijiu was unable to stand at that moment, so naturally, she did not have the strength to push him away. She did not struggle and kept her eyes closed. Weakly, she uttered, "Yun Yanli, I regret!"
"What do you regret?"
"I regret that I used to treat you as a friend! You are not worth it!"
Yun Yanli's facial expression changed. He was stunned for a moment. After pondering for a moment, he smiled and said gently, "I don't regret it, though. I don't regret knowing you. Xijiu, we are a perfect couple. We are destined to be together. Otherwise, how could you fall to the Shura World so coincidentally? Even you should be able to see that we are fated to be together."
