She did not have to stay close to him, but she did so anyway. Naturally, she wrapped her arm around his and said, “Can you figure this thing out? I tried to poke it with a finger, but my finger ended up getting burned.”
Di Fuyi took her hand to observe it. “Which finger did you use?”
“This one.” Gu Xijiu showed him her left hand. “I was concerned that the red fog might be poisonous, so I used my left hand.”
Di Fuyi was not impressed. “Your left fingers are still your fingers, silly.”
He checked the affected area and realized that it was no longer swollen or reddened. Gently, he gave it a rub. Gu Xijiu’s heart melted. “It is fine. The pain was nothing.”
“The red fog is the Chaotic Fog caused by the poisonous gas from the evil beast known as Chaos. It is extremely poisonous, so you must not touch it.” While explaining, Di Fuyi also delivered one of the dead bodies into the fog. White smoke appeared while the body corroded into a pool of pus.
Gu Xijiu was speechless. She did not realize that the red fog was so deadly. Why did her finger remain intact? She could not help but look at her finger again.
“There is no need to think about it. Your body is different. You have developed immunity, so normal poisons will not do any harm on you.”
Even without spiritual power, the quality of her physical body remained the same as a celestial being with immunity against many poisons. Moreover, she was keen on messing around with different poisons all the time, so her level of immunity was already at its peak. Thus, the poison was not deadly, at least to her.
Although the red fog was not harmful to her, she would still have to find a way to break through the barrier. “Can you break down the Chaotic Fog?” Gu Xijiu placed all her hope on Di Fuyi. He seemed invincible, after all.
He took a lute in his hand and answered, “I should be able to.”
Then, he pulled her close and said, “You should stop running around and distracting me.”
Gu Xijiu’s eyes danced with merriment. “Don’t worry. I will stay close,” she reassured him with a firm nod. Her heart was filled with warmth from his caring gesture.
She had always been the leader. Under many dangerous circumstances, she was always the one standing in the frontline. She used to be the one who warned others not to run around. Now, she finally found someone to take over her role.
His gentle reminder was heartwarming. It was nice to feel protected. She enjoyed it, especially when it came from the man she cared about. Gu Xijiu could not hide her joy. Her eyes were bent into a delicate arch as a sign of her great pleasure.
Di Fuyi took a step back and placed the lute by his lips. Smoothly, he played the tune. The sound of the lute was refreshing. His graceful fingers moved swiftly around the lute to create a flow. Loudly, the sound echoed in the air.
Gu Xijiu looked at his lute in astonishment. Was the lute the key of breaking down the red fog barrier? The sound of the lute was rather odd. It did not have any specific melody, but it did sound like the archaic Chinese rhymes with special effects and unique beats. She enjoyed it very much. She tried to remember the tune so that she could play it for him in the future.
Even though the sound of the lute was quite loud, it did not attract any Phantom Beasts. The land remained peaceful, and the air was filled with only the tune. However, a few moments later, Gu Xijiu caught a terrifying sight.
The enormous red fog started to flow. Gradually, the swirling slowly revealed a massive being! Gu Xijiu clenched her fists tightly in response.
