The sharp needles had been pierced into his skin and were poking the acupuncture points which caused his spiritual power to be inhibited. Regardless of how powerful a person was, they would not be able to get out of those locks.
She twisted her wrist, and a pair of tweezers appeared on her palm. She squatted down and started helping Long Siye to pick the lock. There was a kind of light fragrance that was emitting from her body. Long Siye stared at her. She looked exactly like how she was in their past life.
He did not know what she was feeling in her heart right now as he lowered his voice and asked, "Did you come to save me? Don't you hate me?" He had expected her to have a lot of hatred towards him.
"Why would I hate you? Gu Xijiu answered calmly, "You are just a failed clone specimen."
Long Siye was baffled. She still did not recognize him. She was feeling sympathetic towards him and so decided to save him.
"Xijiu, I am Long Xi. I have been reincarnated as Long Siye in this era. You can kill me…" He was unsure of himself. Although it was not a smart move, he felt like telling her the truth.
Gu Xijiu looked at him and chuckled. She did not speak but continued to unlock the spiritual lock. She was an expert in mechanisms and was able to unlock even the most difficult devices. She had a rough idea of how she could unlock it after she had taken a brief look at the lock. What she needed now were the right tools to open it.
When her soul got attached to this body, she did not possess any tools of her own. The tweezers that she was using now had been stolen from Long Fan.
Long Siye breathed lightly. "I have some tools in my storage bag. You can use them."
Gu Xijiu answered, "Okay, please open it for me."
"I can't open it myself… Why don't you point at my chest."
Gu Xijiu did not ask much and directly pointed to the location he had mentioned. A small storage bag appeared, and there were all kinds of medicines and tools inside.
Gu Xijiu glanced at him. "Didn't Mo Zhao search your body….?"
"He did, but I have two storage bags. No one knows about this smaller one", Long Siye explained quietly. He was talented enough to create two storage spaces for himself. One of them was commonly used while the other one was a secret space.
The common storage space had been emptied when he was searched by Mo Zhao earlier while this secret one had gone undetected. The things that Long Siye stored in this secret storage space were essential for him during critical moments.
Gu Xijiu glanced through the storage space but mainly found a makeup toolkit… She could not open the spiritual lock easily with these tools, so it took her some time and effort. After a while, she finally unlocked the spiritual lock and freed Long Siye.
When the lock was opened, the sharp needles that had been pierced into his bones were pulled out together with the lock, which caused his blood to ooze out again. Gu Xijiu did not want to bother him anymore and started walking out of the room.
Long Siye said something that stopped her in her tracks, "Xijiu, do you want to escape from here?"
"Of course." Gu Xijiu did not hide her true intentions. "No one would want to stay in a place where they were unable to see the sun and the sky!"
"I might have a way." Long Siye whispered. He looked at her, "Are you interested in listening?"
He thought that Gu Xijiu would be curious to ask. However, she did not show any interest, "No, I am not interested."
"Don't you believe me?" Long Siye could not help but ask.
Gu Xijiu stared at him and said firmly, "I don't believe you."
