These days were longer than nine lives for him.

“Just wait. I’ll keep her alive with pills for now; it’s up to fate whether or not she can survive the last strike from the heavens.”

Feng Qingtian nodded. “I’ll keep an eye on her.”

Naturally, Gu Bailu didn’t return to the Gu house on her own. Prince Zi sent a bunch of Ye guards with her.

But nothing happened. Gu Bailu took out the piece of the Sky Splitting Mirror that was in the ancestral hall when she returned home.

“Master, I can only rescue you later. I can’t let anything happen to the baby.”

The dazzling light from the Sky Splitting Mirror illuminated the whole house.

This piece of the Sky Splitting Mirror was formless. It looked just like a regular piece of broken glass, except that dense mist swirled in it.

However, the mirror emitted a glittering brilliance that was full of power.

She couldn’t see anything in the mirror. The swirling mist in the mirror looked like the beginning of the universe.

Gu Bailu waited for the Archfiend to pick up the Sky Splitting Mirror.

But nobody came after a whole day.

She spent an uneasy day waiting. Scared that somebody else would take the Sky Splitting Mirror away, she fortified the house with a few more arrays.

If the Archfiend came to take the mirror, he should be able to break the arrays.

When Gu Bailu and Ah Luo slept in the same room that night, Gu Bailu was clutching deadly runes in her hand.

She thought that she wouldn’t be able to fall asleep, but to her surprise, both she and Ah Luo slept until noon.

She sat up quickly and looked at the box next to her pillow. The box, along with the Sky Splitting Mirror piece inside it, was gone.

She checked her pulse again, and it was still chaotic, which suggested that the parasites had yet to be removed.

“My lady, there’s a note here.” Ah Luo picked up a piece of paper from the ground.

“The demonic parasites will automatically disappear in three days. You made a smart decision, little girl. If you’re willing to abort the baby and follow me, you can enjoy the Sky Splitting Mirror with me.”

Gu Bailu snorted.

The Archfiend was indeed formidable enough to make Gu Bailu break into a cold sweat.

He had snuck in and stolen the Sky Splitting Mirror without alerting her at all despite all her security measures.

It would’ve been more than easy for him to kill her if he wanted to.

Feng Qingtian was right. She would be in great danger if she didn’t give up on the Sky Splitting Mirror.

But would the danger disappear if she did give up on it?

The Archfiend was probably the big boss behind Nan Ningxin.

He was her true sworn enemy.

He hadn’t attacked her because she was too weak for him.

She really needed strength, but she didn’t know how to grow strong.

In order to be strong, she had to grow a spirit root and develop spiritual power, so that she could really be part of this world.

She hurriedly took out the water that the King of 9,999 Spring Harbingers had been placed in, and drank two bowls.

She felt very comfortable, as if a brook was flowing through her body.

Feng Qingtian said that the King of 9,999 Spring Harbingers could help grow a spirit root, but Gu Bailu still hadn’t felt anything after drinking it for days.

She looked at the dazzling King of 9,999 Spring Harbingers in the water.

It was really too slow. She wondered if it would be faster if she simply ate it.

She couldn’t stop thinking about it once the idea occurred to her. Looking at the King of 9,999 Spring Harbingers for a long while, she finally gritted her teeth. “I’m going to eat it.”

She took the King of 9,999 Spring Harbingers out of the water, and the whole room lit up in various colors.
