The island was desolate. The rare grasses that grew in the cracks were too short to be noticed.
The sunset on the horizon turned the rocks orange, reminding Gu Bailu of the magma river in hell.
Gu Bailu didn’t like her first impression of the place.
Bare rocks, depressing atmosphere, and the inability to use her runes.
Futu Island wasn’t huge, and didn’t have any buildings on it.
“Where does your master live?” Gu Bailu asked Miyasi curiously.
Miyasi had been solemn after they arrived on the island. He replied worriedly, “My master doesn’t have a residence. He hides among the rocks in bad weather.”
Gu Bailu’s lips twitched. That sounded like an eccentric man.
He lived in such a desolate place, with the earth as his bed and the sky as his quilt.
“You must follow me closely. Don’t miss a step,” Miyasi reminded them as he led the way.
Gu Bailu followed closely, with Feng Qingtian and Qin Shou behind her.
The island wasn’t large, but Miyasi zigzagged over it from sunset to nightfall.
“How long will it take? I’m hungry.” Gu Bailu was truly starving.
Miyasi took a box of food out of his pack. “There’s fried fish inside. You can have this first.”
Gu Bailu blinked. “Judging from your preparations, we have to walk for days?”
Miyasi was carrying quite a few huge boxes that were laden with food.
“It won’t be long. We’ll arrive tomorrow morning.”
And that wasn’t long?
Gu Bailu thought that it had been a bad decision to come to Feng Qingtian. She should’ve waited for Gu Yunjing in the royal palace.
At least, the royal palace had good food and accommodation.
Why did she have to come here to suffer?
However, since she was already here, she could only keep walking.
Miyasi was an honest guy. They truly walked from dusk to dawn.
Gu Bailu had often stayed up all night to capture ghosts, so walking for a night wasn’t a problem for her.
When it was dawn, Miyasi stopped and said, “We’re almost there.”
Gu Bailu looked around. They were in the same place. Was he sure that they hadn’t wasted the night strolling around?
Gu Bailu looked at Feng Qingtian, and Feng Qingtian looked back at her.
Gu Bailu ignored him. Since he didn’t protest, they probably weren’t wasting their time.
“We have been walking inside an area of two hundred meters by two hundred meters.”
Gu Bailu frowned. Was it some sort of array?
Such an array required circling the same place to reach their destination.
Also, walking in these circles was quite complicated. One step wrong, and all the previous efforts would be in vain.
Such arrays were often exhausting and frustrating.
Those without patience wouldn’t be able to solve it even if they knew how to.
“We’re here,” Miyasi said, and drew a star on a rock next to him.
The rune glittered, and the rock split down the center to reveal a stone path.
Miyasi stepped forward solemnly.
Gu Bailu hurried to follow. Feng Qingtian observed the environment coldly.
Miyasi walked quicker and called out toward the waves. “Master!”
