However, it was no surprise that Di Fuyi had won the battle as he was good at identifying one's weaknesses. He had managed to find Mo Zhao's weaknesses and took the opportunity to instigate a conflict between Mo Zhao and Long Fan. Otherwise, it would not have been that easy for him and Gu Xijiu to escape. They were even able to destroy the underground palace! Besides that, he had also successfully injured Mo Zhao to the extent that he could not harm anyone for at least ten years.
The main downfall of the stream of events was that Long Fan managed to escape! It would be a disaster in the future if they happened to reunite again.
"Don't worry, even though Long Fan had escaped from a tunnel, he is severely injured, and Mu Feng is waiting for him at the end of the tunnel. Perhaps, he will not be able to escape."
Gu Xijiu paused for a second. She could not believe that Celestial Master Zuo had thought about everything beforehand.
She sincerely complimented him. "You're such a psychopath! What a smart man! It must be terrible to be your enemy!"
Di Fuyi pulled her into his arms and kissed her forehead. "No, you're the smartest because you chose to be my lover!"
Gu Xijiu looked at him doubtfully. "Lover?"
"Of course! I'm pushing you towards the category of an official wife. By the way, when are you going to marry me?"
Gu Xijiu pondered and asked, "Are you proposing to me? Where's the candlelight? How about the ring and flowers?"
Di Fuyi was speechless.
Of course, Gu Xijiu was making fun of him. Thus, she placed her arm around his neck and said, "How about when my hair reaches my waist?"
Di Fuyi looked at her short hair and assumed that it would take at least three years for her hair to reach her waist!
Anyway, it would be an easy task for him to speed up the hair growth once he had fully recovered. Perhaps, it would take only a few months.
Therefore, he agreed with a smile. "Deal!"
He rubbed her head and added. "Hmm, it's such a long journey, and I don't feel sleepy. Xijiu, why don't we"
Gu Xijiu's heart skipped a beat as she had an instinct that he wanted to cuddle again. He could not stop teasing her for a minute. Gu Xijiu scolded him. "No way!"
Di Fuyi immediately innocently asked, "Why not? I was thinking we can practice together and I can teach you the method of destroying the navigation device."
Gu Xijiu remained silent.
Di Fuyi looked at her. "Did you think of something naughty? You are such an evil girl!"
Gu Xijiu grabbed a cushion and pressed it on his face. "You're a slut!"
Long Fan was sprinting through the tunnel.
He almost died after being attacked by Gu Canmo, Mu Feng, and Mu Lei. Thus, he was spitting blood as he ran and even blacked out a couple of times.
The tunnel had been secretly built as his emergency exit when he designed the underground palace. At the end of the tunnel was a lava pool and he could leave the underground palace safely by boarding a Fire Ship. He just needed to maneuver the Fire Ship out from the secret tunnel to escape.
It was usual for a leader to abandon everyone at such a critical time. However, Long Fan was always a cold-blooded person. Coupled with Mo Zhao's doubtful personality, it was no surprise for Long Fan to leave him behind under such circumstances.
