While she looked like she was devouring the food, she was actually chewing slowly.
It was impossible for her to run out of here, as the passage was so narrow that only one person could pass through it at a time.
She had just searched herself, and all her runes were gone, so it was impossible for her to flee through teleportation.
On her way here, she had seen a tiny window above the passage, but it was only big enough for a baby.
There was no way for her to escape.
“Eat faster.” The man slapped the table and broke it in half.
Gu Bailu didn’t dare dawdle any longer. She finished the food and didn’t hesitate to draw the map.
They had to confirm that the map was correct, so that they would keep her alive for now.
“I… I’ve drawn it out. Can you let my maid go first?”
“So that she can send a message to someone else? Don’t be in a rush. It’s up to the boss if you can leave or not.”
Gu Bailu frowned. “I’ve given you what you want. Why are you still keeping me here?”
“Cut the crap.” Gu Bailu was hauled up and later imprisoned in the skull cave again.
There was no telling if it was because she had eaten too much after being hungry for too long, but she retched for a long time.
She wondered if the food was clean at all.
Even if it was clean, however, it must’ve picked up germs in such a dark place.
Very soon, Gu Bailu felt that she had a fever. She had to get out of here.
She was worried about Ah Luo, but considering the man’s reaction, Ah Luo should be fine for now.
But Ah Luo was a glutton. She had to be feeling very miserable without food.
Who could save Gu Bailu?
She wished someone would save her. She knew that it was impossible for her to escape on her own.
The enemy was too strong, and she was imprisoned in such a strange place.
However, she would never stand a chance if she simply waited to be rescued.
Chanting secretly, Gu Bailu released her Soul Collecting Bracelet.
“Soul Collecting Bracelet, I can only count on you now. There’s a window above the passage. Fly out through there and inform…”
Who should she inform? Who could she turn to now?
“Go inform Gu Yunjing…”
She couldn’t count on Feng Qingtian now. After what happened to Yan Anchun, he wouldn’t have time for anybody else.
Even if he did, he probably wouldn’t bother to save her.
The Soul Collecting Bracelet flew along the passage for a long time, but failed to find a way up to the window.
Gu Bailu chanted again, and turned it into a thin strip of cloth. Finally, it crawled out through a crevice.
In the end, the Soul Collecting Bracelet found the window and successfully flew out.
Gu Yunjing would know that something had happened to her after he saw the Soul Collecting Bracelet.
Gu Bailu passed out after using up the last bit of her strength.
After a long time, her dizzy senses picked up the sound of footsteps as well as the sounds of a battle.
She wanted to open her eyes, but was unable to.
“I didn’t expect you to be the one to come,” said a man in a hoarse voice.
“Let her go.”
It was a familiar voice.
