“I’m serious. You can draw some of my blood and test it. I’m only useful in this way. I’m told that you never grew a spirit root after you ate the King of 9,999 Spring Harbingers, so I thought my blood might come in handy…”
“Wait! Who told you that?”
Only Mr. Xiao and a few people in Prince Zi’s house knew that she had eaten the King of 9,999 Spring Harbingers.
The Nether Land had been chasing this girl all over the world. Where had she learned that?
“I… I’ve been lingering around the Gu house in Pale Emperor City recently. I don’t have a fixed place to live.”
Looking at the weak-looking girl, Gu Bailu found it hard to picture her as an unpardonable person.
She sat down and tried to see the girl’s mind with her Heavenly Eye, but it was a complete blank.
She could see through Qin Shou, a strong guard, although what she saw was quite fuzzy.
Why couldn’t she see through this girl when the latter didn’t have much spiritual power?
Was it because of her Dragon Spirit Blood?
“Have you been living on the streets?” asked Gu Bailu.
The girl had almost had a miscarriage last time, and she escaped before she was fully recovered. Still, she survived being hunted down by the Nether Land after that. This girl definitely wasn’t to be underestimated.
“I… I don’t have any money.” The girl’s pale face turned red with shame.
“Poor you. I do need Dragon Spirit Blood.” Gu Bailu thought for a moment, then decided that she could give the girl to the Nether King after she took her Dragon Spirit Blood.
After all, the Dragon Spirit Blood shouldn’t be monopolized by the Nether King.
“You can do whatever you want to me, but please don’t give me to the Nether King. I don’t want to be… ravaged by him.”
Gu Bailu frowned. “Aren’t you from the Nether Land? Why would he ravage you?”
“I’m not from the Nether Land. He caught me… I only pretended to be obedient in order to live.”
Gu Bailu found that odd. “So, your baby is the Nether King’s?”
The girl shook her head. “No… I would never let the Nether King touch me. The baby’s father is someone else.”
“Then why don’t you ask the father for help?” Gu Bailu frowned at the girl’s complicated life.
“No… I can’t go back… I can’t let him know that I’m pregnant either, or I would have to abort the baby.” The girl hugged Gu Bailu’s leg and said, “Princess, you’re the only one I can turn to now. I can do anything for you, but please don’t kick me out.”
She wasn’t weeping, and there was stubbornness on her soft face, but Gu Bailu knew that she was begging her.
And that was even worse than if she had cried.
A pregnant woman had to avoid both the baby’s father and her pursuers.
Maybe because she looked too harmless, Gu Bailu didn’t suspect her of hidden motives at all.
If she really had Dragon Spirit Blood, Gu Bailu might be interested in negotiating with her.
However, she still planned to discuss it with Feng Qingtian first.
“I can’t make such a decision on my own. I’ll talk to Feng Qingtian first. You can stay here for the night.”
As a pregnant woman herself, she knew how difficult life was for people like them.
She couldn’t kick such a vulnerable woman out after seeing her.
She wondered if she would be killed for her kindness one day.
