The Evil Consort Above An Evil King Book 4 Chapter 2514
The barrier was actually set up for Gu Xijiu to hide in if Yun Yanli ever managed to find a way past the wizardry barrier. It would also be a good place to hide Di Fuyi's statue if anything ever happened.
She certainly did not expect to experience a catastrophe at the same time that Yun Yanli broke into the valley. It made her a live target, and she knew that she could not hide. Therefore, before she experienced the catastrophe, she buried the jade statue into the wizardry barrier.
Kun Xueyi went into the lake with Guardian Jin in the middle of the battle. He actually hid inside the wizardry barrier as well. Yun Yanli thought that the two persons had run away, so he did not chase after them.
As long as Yun Yanli did not capture Di Fuyi, there was still hope for a comeback, no matter how badly things turned out. She was worried about his wellbeing, but she did not show it on her face. In fact, she kept her eyes closed most of the time and just focused on healing her injuries. However, the cries of a donkey made her suddenly open her eyes.
She did not see the donkey in the crowd, but she certainly recognized its voice. It was Zhu Duqing's donkey! Did that mean that Yun Yanli had captured Zhu Duqing? When she opened her eyes, Yun Yanli already knew what was going on in her mind. He waved his hand to signal the soldiers to spread out, revealing Zhu Duqing, who was trapped in a net as well as his donkey, which was tied up.
The donkey had spent a few days with Gu Xijiu before and had grown fond of her. It had treated her as a friend, so seeing her definitely made it hopeful. It kept talking to Gu Xijiu as though it was complaining about something.
Zhu Duqing was very embarrassed and ordered the donkey, "Don't scream!"
He apologetically looked at Gu Xijiu and said, "Master Xijiu, I am sorry..."
Gu Xijiu felt sorry for Zhu Duqing, as well. If it were not for her, Mr. Zhu would be safe and sound in the devil world. She had abandoned him for Di Fuyi, which made her feel guilty about his current predicament.
Initially, she thought that even if Yun Yanli caught him, the man would be kind to him. However, she did not expect him to be trapped in the torturous net while his donkey remained tied up.
Gu Xijiu turned to look at Yun Yanli and then looked away. "Why have you kept him in a net?"
Yun Yanli chuckled. "If you promise to marry me, then I will let him go."
Gu Xijiu was speechless. This guy was sick!
Yun Yanli's eyes clearly showed his disappointment. However, a smile suddenly appeared on his face. "He is your precious apprentice. He would sacrifice anything for you. Although he had escaped from me before, he still worried about you and even spied on us. However, he was caught by me. Can you bear to watch him being tortured to death?"
Gu Xijiu did not speak.
Yun Yanli then looked at Zhu Duqing. "Mr. Zhu, see for yourself. It seems that you are not important to her."
Yun Yanli was very good at provoking people's relationships. In just a few words, he managed to turn the situation in his favor. However, Zhu Duqing was not a fool. He disdainfully replied, "You are just trying to provoke us! I don't buy it!"
Yun Yanli's facial expression changed very abruptly. He instructed the young palace master at his side, "Peel off the skin of this donkey!"
The donkey was raging! It never thought that it would be the one who got the bullet. How did it manage to get in between all these parties? The donkey screamed furiously!
The scream was loud as a dragon and shook the stone houses in the distance, causing them to collapse. Even the surface of the lake was moving violently as if someone were boiling it. Everyone covered their ears and stepped back.
"Don't scream! Bastard! Don't scream! Do you want to kill the people here?!" Zhu Duqing cursed!
