Nan Ningxin could touch Feng Qingtian now?
Feng Qingtian didn’t crush her to pieces?
Nan Ningxin took off her necklace and put it on Feng Qingtian. “Qingtian, don’t worry. The Night Lotus will protect your spiritual power.”
“I’m fine. Get it away.” Feng Qingtian tried to take off the accessory.
Nan Ningxin shook her head anxiously. “Don’t you know that Shao Di’s Red Fire can destroy your spirit root? Why did you take the hit?”
“It can’t leave you.” Feng Qingtian insisted on taking off the necklace.
Gu Bailu frowned. This time, she finally noticed that the necklace Nan Ningxin had been wearing was a pure lotus flower which had a creepy dark core.
The lotus flower was strung on a transparent string that was barely visible.
She was curious why Nan Ningxin could touch Feng Qingtian now. She had been wearing the same necklace before, but couldn’t approach Feng Qingtian back then.
“Prince Zi was hit by my Red Fire. His spiritual power has scattered.” Gu Yunjing asked Gu Bailu concernedly, “Were you hurt just now?”
Gu Bailu shook her head. “No.”
Gu Yunjing examined her carefully before he relaxed. “Why did you run at the Red Fire just now? I almost hurt you.”
“I just saw the opportunity to escape…”
She really thought that it was just a squabble between Gu Yunjing and Feng Qingtian.
Their fights were astonishing each and every time, but neither of them were ever hurt.
She didn’t expect Gu Yunjing to attack so fiercely this time.
It seemed that Feng Qingtian hadn’t seen it coming either. That was why he had blocked it with his body instead of dodging it.
“What a fool. You were running in desperation,” Gu Yunjing said angrily.
He wasn’t angry at Gu Bailu, but at himself.
If Feng Qingtian hadn’t done anything, Gu Bailu would be dead.
He had waited so many years for her, and he almost killed her just now.
What scared him even more was that Feng Qingtian needed Gu Bailu more than just physically.
He had shielded Gu Bailu almost without any hesitation; it was an instinctive protection.
Gu Bailu couldn’t be any more innocent. How could she know that they were fighting for real?
She was too busy running away from Feng Qingtian to pay attention to the danger.
“Don’t do that again… Stay away from any spiritual power,” Gu Yunjing held her hand and warned her gravely, his charming face now hard and cold.
“Alright. Got it. I’ll pay more attention next time.”
It was her negligence.
Judging from how nervous Gu Yunjing was and how miserable Feng Qingtian was, she knew that she had almost been killed just now.
“Ahhh…” Nan Ningxin suddenly cried out and fell into Feng Qingtian’s arms like a leaf.
“Ningxin!” Feng Qingtian yelled anxiously.
Nan Ningxin’s skin withered like a fresh vegetable put in boiling water. She looked extremely awful.
It was as if somebody had extracted her soul, leaving only the shell behind.
