Gu Xijiu was speechless. Ye Hongfeng looked at her and asked, "My master was fighting with the Silver Fairy Beast at the abandoned area earlier. Why did you release an ox to lure it over here?"
Gu Xijiu casually answered, "It would have called its buddies if I did not do it!" She did not want to talk any longer with Ye Hongfeng. Hence, she turned around and went to help Long Siye.
She had found the weakness of the beast, so they could probably kill it faster if she helped.
"Please, don't go."
Ye Hongfeng quickly grabbed her sleeve. "I'm scared."
Gu Xijiu was impatient. "What are you afraid of, my young lady?"
"I'm afraid that there'll be other ferocious beasts There are so many of them in the jungle!"
Gu Xijiu felt like she was about to get a headache. "I thought you possessed a spiritual power of level five and a half? Normal beasts would not be able to harm you."
"I I've never hunted or fought before. I'm terrified of being alone here by myself. Could you stay here with me? My master told you to stay with me and protect me if anything should happen" Ye Hongfeng refused to let go of Gu Xijiu's sleeve.
Gu Xijiu was annoyed. Although she did not like Ye Hongfeng, she was Long Siye's disciple, and he prioritized his disciples. Otherwise, he would not have resurrected her and recruited her as his disciple. He even treated her nicely.
Although he had sex with Ye Hongfeng when he was drunk, it would not have happened unless some part of him was willing to do it. Besides that, he even brought Ye Hongfeng along this time. Firstly, he was trying to avoid being alone with Gu Xijiu. Secondly, Ye Hongfeng wanted a type of stone from the Silver Fairy Mountain which looked similar to the Agate. Hence, Long Siye brought her along.
Regardless of whether Long Siye and Ye Hongfeng would be a couple in the future, Long Siye did care about her. Since Long Siye cared about here, Gu Xijiu decided to protect her from any harm for his master. Hence, she chose to stay with her on the tree.
"Ah! Your arm is bleeding." Ye Hongfeng suddenly screamed.
"Don't worry; it's just a small wound." Gu Xijiu did not care about it and was lazy to look at it as well.
"Why don't I help you to wrap it?"
Gu Xijiu shook her head. "It's alright, I won't die because of the bleeding. Also, we'll need my blood to get the muscles out from the Silver Fairy Beast later, so least I don't have to cut my finger for it."
Ye Hongfeng went silent.
Gu Xijiu continued looking towards the direction where Long Siye and the beast were fighting. She was relieved as she saw that Long Siye had gained an advantage over the beast.
After about 15 minutes, the Silver Fairy Beast finally slumped on the ground. Gu Xijiu exhaled a sigh of relief. Finally, it was over!
She looked at the wound on her arm and saw that a layer of scab was already forming on the surface. She planned to break it with her spiritual power while she was heading over to the beast. Thus, by the time she arrived, the blood should be sufficient enough to pull out the beast's muscle.
She was so happy and was about teleport when suddenly Ye Hongfeng pulled her from behind. "Xijiu, bring me along."
Gu Xijiu was more relaxed now. Hence, she immediately carried Ye Hongfeng and teleported away.
She only managed to teleport half of the way when she suddenly felt a chronic pain in her back! Ye Hongfeng who was being carried had pierced a short knife into her! Their distance was too close, and she was unaware. Hence, Ye Hongfeng succeeded.
