Gu Bailu sneered. “History? We have much more than just history.”
Gu Yunjing frowned in confusion.
What could Nan Ningxin have possibly done to make Gu Bailu hate her so much?
“Is it really because of Nan Ningxin?”
“Of course. What else could it be?” Gu Bailu replied honestly.
Gu Yunjing was secretly relieved. “What do you want to do?”
Gu Bailu grinned. “I could use your help.”
Gu Yunjing raised his eyebrow. “I would love to help you, but Nan Ningxin is an old acquaintance of mine…”
“Say no more. State your terms.” Gu Bailu interrupted him.
Acquaintances were nothing in the face of interests.
Gu Yunjing smiled. “I’m short of nothing except…”
“I know that you need someone to dual cultivate with.” Gu Bailu knew exactly what he would demand.
“Yes. I’ll definitely help you if you agree to that.”
“I would love to agree, but I’m not qualified for that, and I can’t guarantee that I can find someone who is.”
Nobody is more qualified than you.
Gu Yunjing added in his heart.
Gu Bailu pouted. “Are you sure that I can dual cultivate with you?”
If she could dual cultivate with Shao Di, her power would definitely soar.
“All you need to do is say yes.” Gu Yunjing was delighted to find someone to dual cultivate with.
The happiness from the bottom of his heart made him less lonely.
Gu Bailu asked solemnly, “What exactly is dual cultivation? Does it have to involve sex?”
She couldn’t agree to that if they had to sleep together.
“That’s unnecessary. You don’t even need to get naked.”
“Alright! You’ve got yourself a deal. However, let me reiterate that I don’t agree to sex, and that it’s not my fault if the dual cultivation doesn’t work because of my lack of spiritual power.”
“Deal. How do you want me to help you?”
Gu Yunjing didn’t hesitate.
Coldness flashed in Gu Bailu’s eyes. “Nan Ningxin’s soul must still be inside the Night Lotus. I want to steal it.”
Gu Yunjing’s face changed. “That’s not possible. The Night Lotus has a defense mechanism. You’ll be killed if you touch it.”
The Night Lotus was a contracted item that outsiders couldn’t touch.
“Then, I’ll fight over the soul with the Night Lotus before she recovers.”
She couldn’t let Nan Ningxin die, but Nan Ningxin could fall under her control.
If she had Nan Ningxin’s soul, the woman would have to listen to her!
That couldn’t be any more wonderful!
Gu Bailu’s hands were itchy at the thought.
Her years of hard work were finally of use now.
Gu Yunjing shook his head again. “It’s impossible for you to steal a soul that is contracted to the Night Lotus, or it wouldn’t be the best artifact in the world.”
“That’s why I need your help.” Gu Bailu waved at him.
Gu Yunjing hurried to lean over. Sensing her warm breath, he immediately blushed.
“What do you want me to do?”
“The Night Lotus is an artifact, but it doesn’t have intelligence, after all. Help me get the Night Lotus. I’ll be able to get the soul out as long as you can get the Night Lotus for me.”
