Her face was red, and her forehead was covered with a layer of sweat. Her fingers were trembling, and her mouth was slightly ajar as though she was shouting in fear or anger. Was she having a nightmare again?!
Di Fuyi's heart sank as he grabbed her hand. She was sweating, but her hands were as cold as ice. She was holding his hand so tightly that it even hurt his hand. Di Fuyi quickly checked on her pulse and realized the blood was circulating in her body rather rapidly and that her body temperature had drastically risen as well.
It was as though a particular virus has invaded her body and the antibodies inside her bloodstream were fighting vigorously against the infections! She was having a fever, and was probably 41 degrees Celsius now!
Other than her little hands, every single part of her body was boiling! It was common to have a fever when one getsinjured. However, it was different for Gu Xijiu. Her body was exceptional, and she has almost achieved a level eight spiritual power. Besides that, Di Fuyi let her use his best Gold-Inflicted Remedy, hence, she was not supposed to have a fever!
Di Fuyi quickly scanned her body and realized there was nothing wrong with her other than her fever. Her wounds were well monitored too. What was going on?
"Xijiu! Little Xijiu!" Di Fuyi was calling her, at the same time, he also transmitted some spiritual power to her via his palms to suppress the blood circulation.
Her eyeballs were moving under her eyelids. She wanted to open her eyes eagerly but she could not.
"Xijiu, quickly adjust your mind to Spiritual Calming Magic!" Di Fuyi quickly sent her a refined directed audio via her ear, and he believed she could hear it.
Gu Xijiu's eyeballs were still moving, but she did not seem to understand what he said.
Spiritual Calming Magic was a new magic Di Fuyi shared with Gu Xijiu. It was good at controlling evil spirits. Gu Xijiu was a fast learner, and she was familiar with it as she would even use it when she was dreaming.
If she could use the magic the way Di Fuyi taught her, she would be able to recover very soon. However, she did not show any signs of cooperation. Hence, Di Fuyi could only suppress the blood circulation with his spiritual power.
As a result, her recovery progress has been slowed down. Initially, she only needed an hour to recover, but now she needed two hours. Fortunately, the outcome was relatively good. Two hours later, her blood circulation was back to normal, and her body temperature slowly decreased as well.
Di Fuyi was sweating all over. He used a cleaning spell to clean himself as well as Gu Xijiu. After that, he sat beside her and looked at her for a while again.
This time, Gu Xijiu slept well as though she was having a good dream.
"Little Xijiu" He called her name as he held her hand. He was ready to enter her dream to bring her out if she could not respond to him again.
It consumed a lot of his spiritual power to enter her dream. He would have used other methods if he could, but sadly, there was none.
Fortunately, Gu Xijiu could respond this time. Her lashes trembled a few times and finally, she opened her eyes!
She seemed miserable when she first opened her eyes. She had to blink her eyes several times to finally to focus her eyesight. Her mouth was slightly opened as she looked at Di Fuyi, but she could not make a single sound at the moment.
