Gu Xijiu suddenly had a realization... Were they fighting using their music instruments?
Di Fuyi could not continue any further after playing halfway through the song. He paused, and the chord strings immediately snapped. Fortunately, he released the strings quickly enough. Otherwise, his fingers would have been injured.
Mo Zhao stopped as well and asked with a tone of satisfaction, "Why did you stop?"
Di Fuyi answered as he looked at the lute, "The chord strings have snapped." He then tried to fix the lute.
Mo Zhao smiled elegantly and did not bother him anymore.
Two hours later, the temperature in the cabin started increasing. They could see the volcano in the distance. Di Fuyi sighed as he looked at the volcano.
He had been here a few days ago when he followed Long Siye's trail and had even found Ye Hongfeng's clone body. In fact, he had felt that there was something strange about the volcano. Hence, he had assigned a few secret agents to search every inch of the mountain. However, he could not find anything and never expected that they were hiding inside the lava.
Long Fan was indeed a genius!
"Xijiu, we're home." Mo Zhao was sitting beside Gu Xijiu, and he carried her up.
"Let me do it." The lute player said as she drew closer.
Mo Zhao did not like to argue over small matters, so he pushed Gu Xijiu over to the lute player, "Alright, be careful."
Everything happened in a split second!
While Mo Zhao was pushing Gu Xijiu towards the lute player, a sharp knife flew towards the chest of the lute player at the same time!
Mo Zhao's Kung Fu was terrific, and his attack was too fast and sudden. Based on Mo Zhao's predictions, she would not be able to avoid his attack, and would be stabbed in the chest!
Unfortunately, his opponent was alert and smart. Even though everything had happened in a blink of an eye, Di Fuyi was able to respond to his attack, and the knife barely missed his chest!
Mo Zhao's attack had failed, and he did not manage even to cut Di Fuyi's clothes. Even Gu Xijiu did not expect him to avoid the attack as everything had happened so suddenly. Therefore, they ended the first round of the battle politely.
In a blink of an eye, Mo Zhao had pulled Gu Xijiu into his arms, and a green knife was placed near Gu Xijiu's neck. He smiled as he watched Di Fuyi leap up from the floor. "Di Fuyi, you're indeed amazing! I can't believe that I missed that attack."
Everything had been revealed. It was a surprise to everyone.
Di Fuyi sighed as he knew that he had been exposed. He decided to stop pretending and asked as he placed his arms in front of his chest, "How did you find out?"
Mo Zhao narrowed his eyes and looked at Di Fuyi as he sensed that his aura was getting stronger all of a sudden. He said, "Di Fuyi, I find that you're quite an intelligent person as you know how to go with the flow. However, even though you're as cunning as a fox, I'm not a weak chicken that you can prey on. Though you're very good at acting, your subordinates still have room for improvement. It doesn't make any sense that you could be hurt by Wu Wuyan so easily. Furthermore, Wu Wuyan had poisoned him (the person who pretended to be Ying Yannuo) earlier. I felt that you would have known about it based on your intelligence! You would have forced the poison out from your body immediately if you had been poisoned, but he didn't…"
Mo Zhao was quite happy about himself as he slowly revealed Di Fuyi's conspiracy.
