He only had Mu Yun and Mu Lei by his side to escort him. Moreover, Wu Wuyan was there with him, too. It was inconvenient for him to go anywhere else.
The Great Lord had brought over a hundred elites along to plot against Di Fuyi in secret. They should be arriving anytime now. By that time, Di Fuyi could hardly look after himself, let alone Long Siye. Long Fan was contented with the possible outcomes.
He had quite a lot of followers along with him this time, about 30 to 40 of them. After doing the maths, he started to dispatch them with different missions until there were only ten followers at his disposal. The rest were ordered to return to the base.
The place was a base camp that he had spent a few decades to build. He could not afford the smallest mistake. He would only be relieved if there was sufficient security to guard the place.
"Elder, where should we go?" The ten followers were ready to receive their mission.
Long Fan took a look at the compass in his hand. The red dot was still in rapid motion and had already left the mountains. It was heading towards the east, where the Tianwen Mountain was located. It seemed like Long Siye was trying to take her to the Tianwen Mountain for temporary shelter. However, with her current physical condition, she would have to stop for a break within the next hundred miles.
After securing Gu Xijiu's whereabouts, Long Fan seemed to be at ease. He replied nonchalantly, "What is the rush? We should let them have some fun. Listen to me…" He segregated them and assigned eight flying riders to intercept them on the way to the Tianwen Mountain.
His flying rides were exceptionally fast, even faster than Long Siye's magic crane. Once they were allowed to fly off, he was sure that they could make it in time for an interception. Both Long Siye and Gu Xijiu would fall into his trap if they were indeed headed to the Tianwen Mountain.
When everything was sorted out, the eight of them set off to carry out their mission.
"Elder, what about us two?"
"The two of you will be with me."
Long Fan instructed for a ride, too. Carefree and leisurely, he was carried towards the east. He did not travel at a breakneck speed, but instead, moved as though he was going for a casual outing.
Two of his followers were puzzled by his sudden change of temperament, as he was filled with extreme fury just a few moments ago.
Long Fan might seem outwardly calm but was often subject to mood swings. The two followers were thus too scared to ask. They took their rides and followed his course.
They saw that Long Elder was frequently checking the compass in his hand. He seemed confident about his plan. The smile at the corners of his lips sent cold chills down their spines.
About half an hour later, the red dot on the compass came to an abrupt stop. Long Fan quickly tried to determine its exact location. Smilingly, he said, "Alright, we can now draw up the nets!" Suddenly, his ride gained tremendous speed and dashed ahead!
"Something is not right!" After leaving the territory of the active volcano, Long Siye finally broke his silence.
"What is wrong?" Gu Xijiu was perplexed.
"Xijiu, you have something like a locator marked on your body!" During their teleportation, Gu Xijiu had been holding Long Siye's hand. It was the first time Long Siye touched her after she switched to a new body. He could tell that something was not right.
Gu Xijiu's expression changed abruptly. Intuitively, she quickly searched for the locator on her body.
"The locator is not on your clothes. It is inside your body." Long Siye stopped her.
Gu Xijiu did not know what to say. She finally understood why they were not worried about her snooping around the underground palace. They knew that she could not run away because her cloned body was installed with a locator.
She furrowed her brows and asked, "Where is it?"
"Beneath your heart…" Long Siye told her its exact location.
Gu Xijiu used her spiritual power to examine her body with the help of her inner vision skill. She could somehow see a foreign matter there the size of a bean.
