Gu Xijiu took out a small bag and handed it to Mrs. Zhou. "In the bag, you will find 100 pills that will allow everyone to advance to level nine. Those who are about to advance to level nine will have to request for the pill from you. You can choose the next group of people who wish to leave, at your own free will." Mrs. Zhou was delighted and thanked her for the offer. She could not express enough gratitude that she had for Gu Xijiu.
Gu Xijiu's eyes swept across the crowd and picked some of the men to be her assistants, for them to ensure her safety. She also set a rule, saying that she would choose the next group of people.
Mrs. Zhou was a very responsible woman, and her Kung Fu was outstanding, making her a friendly figure around here. Usually, she would be the one who guided the women in solving the problems that they faced in the village. If she continued playing Luo Zhanyu's role as a ruler to keep the place in order, no one would oppose it.
Everyone was delighted at the new hope. Negativity was nowhere to be found as a new sense of excitement took over the ambiance.
The Wang's couple held onto each other firmly as they looked into each other's eyes. Wang Yunyuan pulled his wife into his embrace immediately and said, "I will make sure that you practice more frequently. We shall make it out together when the time comes!"
Mrs. Wang nodded quietly, as she rushed into his arms and hugged him tightly.
Zhou Tianci was astounded by the sudden change. He looked at his wife as he stammered, "Xiaotong"
Mrs. Zhou's original name was Le Xiaotong. With an icy glance, she walked away without answering him.
Le Xiaotong was a gentle and responsible woman. Everything she did, she did it in an orderly manner. Moreover, her appearance was absolutely stunning and she was once the dream lover for most of the men here.
Now that she had rediscovered her freedom, all the other men finally stood a chance in winning her heart. There were already a few men surrounding her, as they tried to make a good impression.
Zhou Tianci was an extremely jealous man. He would be jealous even if Le Xiaotong spoke to another man only for a short while. Now, he had completely lost his chance to be with her.
Le Xiaotong looked gentle, but she was, in fact, a woman with a steely determination. If she chose to let him go, she would not look back at all. Also, he had made his solemn promise. She would no longer be his wife.
Di Fuyi took a look at the rest of them. "To the next group who wishes to escape the eighth peak, you will still require Xijiu to guide you through the wizardry barrier. You will not be able to get out, otherwise, even with a level ten leader. She will pick you up on the assigned dates for the time to come."
After hearing what he had to offer, the people were thrilled. Everyone was hopeful of getting out. Only Zhou Tianci's face was the color of wood ash.
If they only needed Le Xiaotong as the guide, what he had to do was to beg for her forgiveness. After all, she was his wife who once loved him dearly. He had to play weak and showed her that he was wrong, hoping that she would be compassionate enough to let him leave. However, they still needed Gu Xijiu to guide them through the wizardry barrier. Gu Xijiu wouldobviously loath to have him. He was afraid that he might have no chance of getting out at all.
When everything was set and done, those who were about to depart returned to their homes to keep their bags and to say goodbye to their loved ones.
Gu Xijiu returned to her house as well. She looked around the place that she had been living in for the past eight years. Now that she was finally leaving, she might not have the chance to come back anymore. She suddenly felt a strong attachment to it.
"Master, are we coming back to this place again?" The mussel clasped the corner of her dress with its shells.
"Definitely not, this place is a prison. The outside world is better." There was a crispy sound of a child. A child in red was seemingly pinching his lips in disapproval.
It was Lu Wu. After eight years, it was almost attaining its human form, as his practice was the most advanced among the three of them.
