Furthermore, those palace guards were already having a grievance against Mo Zhao. They had been sabotaging the surveillance cameras, making it even easier for Di Fuyi's men to move around in the palace. These men were all elites and were very careful about their conducts, so they would not give themselves away.
Gu Xijiu was able to draw inferences about other cases from this one instance, so she managed to understand the events quickly. She continued to ask a critical question, "Long Fan is excellent in the field of medicine and familiar with the use of poisons. What kind of poison did you apply to prevent Long Fan from realizing it? What was that?"
Di Fuyi coughed. "As Long Fan was too sensitive to the use of poisons, simple ones would easily get his attention. We had to use something specially made that took a few steps to work. The combination of furniture made of Gold Phoebe Wood, in addition to the music played from Ah Xi's lute, my blood, and some powdered medicine did the trick. All these four materials were not harmful individually but worked when they were mixed and triggered with a special tune from the lute. It had neither any color nor smell, so Long Fan could not tell it apart."
Gu Xijiu hesitated a little. "Why are you telling me every detail?"
Mo Zhao did not manage to figure it out. Hence, it was safe to assume that he currently had an upset stomach.
Di Fuyi responded gently, "I will not hide anything from you anymore."
Gu Xijiu did not answer.
Di Fuyi raised his concern, "Are you still mad at me?"
Gu Xijiu pursed her lips into a thin line and refused to answer him. Deep down, she could not help but sigh. These arrangements were not much to be particular about, but to get everything done in perfect synchronization required a thoughtful mind with meticulous plans. Every step led to the other. A simple mistake would waste all previous efforts. It was very risky.
Gu Xijiu was not mad at him though. She had lost her memory and was a little dumb. If Di Fuyi had told her every part of his plan in advance, she would not be able to keep it a secret.
She was a little frustrated. Di Fuyi did not lose his power and was still the mighty God who could easily crush anyone with a flick of his finger. However, once Gu Xijiu regained her memory, he acted as though he was weak. So weak that he could be blown away by strong wind. She was really worried about him.
Although he was acting his part in front of Mo Zhao, he could have easily directed an audiomessage to her to keep her notified. Therefore, she did not want to answer him at the moment. She turned and continued to engage in a conversation with Long Siye.
They were talking about Mo Zhao and Long Fan. Concerned, Gu Xijiu furrowed her brows before continuing, "Both of them got away. I am afraid that they will misbehave and will continue to cause a perpetual torment."
Before Long Siye could respond, Di Fuyi suddenly interrupted, "No, although Mo Zhao has escaped, his soul is severely injured. He will not be able to cause any trouble in at least 50 years. As for Long Fan, he was caught by Gu Canmo and Mu Feng but managed to run away through a secret passage because he was familiar with the structure of the palace. However, he, too, was severely injured and will need at least a decade to recover fully."
Long Siye and Gu Xijiu were both relieved. This time, at least they could stay in peace for at least a couple of years. No one could predict what major changes would happen to the world after that but Gu Xijiu was very confident. With the pace of her practice, her spiritual power would already be beyond level nine after a decade. One could easily assume that she would be huge trouble for them as well.
She continued to chatter with Long Siye on some other topics.
Di Fuyi sat leaning on his back. He interrupted their conversations a few times but did not manage to get any response from Gu Xijiu. Long Siye ignored him on purpose as well.
