Venerated Venomous Consort Chapter 2436
It was evident from her tone that Gu Xijiu was very scornful. Hesitantly, Yun Yanli stared at her with a serious expression. “Xijiu, did you suspect that I was the one who summoned the bats?”
Gu Xijiu denied his accusation. “I did not.” It was true that she did not suspect that he had caused the commotion. She was sure that he did! However, she could not point that out. She could not risk shedding all the pretenses at this time.
Yun Yanli turned his attention to Di Fuyi instead. “Mr. Di seemed at ease, even in such a dangerous moment.” He did not see Di Fuyi helping Gu Xijiu earlier.
Di Fuyi confidently flicked his sleeves. “You are right. If I helped, I would not be able to witness your charm.”
Yun Yanli did not know what to answer.
Soon, Di Fuyi and Gu Xijiu returned to their carriage. Their reason for doing so was that Mr. Di was obsessed with hygiene. He had just cleaned the wagon, so he was reluctant to switch. What frustrated Yun Yanli the most was Gu Xijiu’s unquestioned submission towards Di Fuyi’s every request. When he asked to return, she willingly agreed and followed him back to the carriage without questioning his intentions.
Yun Yanli was very annoyed but did not dare to act at this moment.
The incident was finally over, and all the carriages continued their journey.
Yun Yanli looked at the carriage before him and was puzzled. He did not summon the Bloody Bats. They appeared on their own. However, he knew about the characteristics of the bat. These bats were able to tell when an immense source of spiritual power appeared. They were attracted to spiritual power like flies are attracted to garbage, and could easily track the source within miles.
He once used the bats to find sources of spiritual power, and they never let him down. The stronger the spiritual power, the more bats one could expect to be present. The scary part was that he had never seen so many bats going after one source of spiritual power before.
Obviously, Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi possessed a strong source of spiritual power. They must have revealed some of their spiritual power by accident, thus attracting the Bloody Bats. Finally, the bats left as soon as they kept away their spiritual power. What was the source of the spiritual power that they had?
Di Fuyi was the son of a celestial being and a devil. The Divine Couple clearly adored him, so they must have given him a lot of magical items. One of the items he was carrying must be the source of the spiritual power.
That would explain how Di Fuyi was able to show up again after his disappearance for so long. He even had the ability to destroy the entire poisonous swamp that had encountered a catastrophe. Perhaps he had passed through some adventures and acquired an immense source of spiritual power.
Di Fuyi was known to be a man of wicked plans, torturing his enemies with no mercy. Yun Yanli thought that it was all a plot. Otherwise, Di Fuyi would not stand aside even when his life was at stake. He would not leave Gu Xijiu alone in such a situation. He appeared to be a little weak, as well.
Was Di Fuyi presenting a bold front to conceal something? Or was he only acting to lure Yun Yanli into action? A sudden realization occurred to Yun Yanli, which made him believe that he had a grasp of the entire situation.
Yun Yanli was convinced that Di Fuyi revealed Yun Yanli’s intentions to Gu Xijiu, but she refused to believe his theory, so he wanted to make Yun Yanli launch the first attack to prove that he was right. Di Fuyi had pretended to be weak on purpose and flirted with Gu Xijiu sweetly just to tempt Yun Yanli. Everything was a show just to trigger him to attack.
Yun Yanli was not a man who would fall for such a trap. With a smug look on his face, Yun Yanli decided to enter Zhu Duqing’s carriage. He wanted to see if he could get any information from the man.
The carriage that Di Fuyi and Gu Xijiu rode was not badly damaged. There were some stains on the curtains and some holes every here and there, but overall, it looked fine. Di Fuyi changed the curtains into new ones that were even better than what Yun Yanli had for them earlier. He changed a few other items and threw the old ones out.
Yun Yanli’s men were not on the same carriage, but they could clearly see him from behind. All of them frowned with dissatisfaction by his action.
“Di Fuyi, how could you?”
