The Evil Consort Above An Evil King Book 4 Chapter 2513
Gu Xijiu sneered.
"Why don't you think about it? If Di Fuyi was here and saw me experiencing a catastrophe, he will definitely be protecting me. Why wouldn't he show up?"
Yun Yanli snorted. "Maybe he is paralyzed?"
Gu Xijiu smiled with ridicule. "If this explanation makes you feel more comfortable, you can go ahead and comfort yourself."
Yun Yanli remained silent. In fact, he also felt that this reason was farfetched. The last time he saw Di Fuyi, the man still looked well. Although he suffered some injuries and his skills were not as good as before, there was no indication that he would be paralyzed. What's more, he had already rested for seven to eight days. If anything, he should be stronger than before.
"So, he is not here?!" Yun Yanli seemed to understand what was going on. After all, this was the most reasonable explanation.
Gu Xijiu chuckled but did not speak.
"Where is he?"
"Do you think I will tell you?"
"Gu Xijiu, my patience is limited, even for you!" Yun Yanli pinched a spell with his fingers, and a spear-like object appeared on at fingertips. "I will count to three. If you don't tell me his whereabouts, I will immediately order the men on the shore to kill your friends and your clansmen!"
Gu Xijiu remained silent. She pondered the situation, and after a while, she finally said coldly, "In fact, there is no harm for me to tell you. He has already returned to the devil world."
"Nonsense, my people have been guarding the entrance to the devil kingdom for days. No one had entered."
"Stupid! He naturally knew that you sent people to guard the entrance. Do you think he will just deliver himself to you? We knew that you would use my clansmen to force me out one day and that you would bring your most elite squad. Do you think the soldiers that you left there could stop him?"
Yun Yanli clenched his fist. He did bring all his elite troops with him, leaving not more than eight people at the entrance to the devil kingdom. Those eight people were certainly able to deal with an average person, but there was no way they could deal with Di Fuyi.
"So, it turns out that you have thought of everything. Deliberately attracting my people here to pave the way for him to return to the devil world."
Gu Xijiu smiled. "Yes!"
"You are really infatuated with him!"
"Of course. He is my husband. Who else would I be infatuated with?"
Yun Yanli smiled slyly. "Gu Xijiu, I didn't expect your taste to be so poor. It seems that a child managed to lure you away. Aren't you afraid that the people in the Upper Bound would make fun of you for it?"
Gu Xijiu slightly closed her eyes and answered indifferently, "I am following my heart. I am not concerned over any gossip."
Yun Yanli suddenly laughed. "Really? That's good then!" He then brought her straight to the shore.
The young palace master and the rest of his subordinates were waiting for their next instruction. When they saw him returning empty-handed, they knew that he had not found Di Fuyi, so they did not dare to ask any further questions.
Gu Xijiu let out a sigh of relief. She had always been rigorous in her work and liked to have a backup plan. Over the past few days, she had set up a wizardry barrier at the bottom of the lake together with Kun Xueyi. This wizardry barrier was colorless and transparent to anyone looking at it from the outside.
