He dodged and disappeared instantly into the ground. No one knew that he had mastered the skill of burrowing. Only those with a spiritual power of level nine and above could master the technique.
The people stood gazing at one another with heavy hearts, "Did he manage to escape from us? If he gets away, he will certainly make his comeback in due time!"
Gu Xijiu was astounded, and her eyes stared in disbelief at the display of the tablet, "He had hidden his Kung Fu so well! Who would have thought that he had achieved a spiritual power of level nine and above!"
Di Fuyi was looking at the scene as well, "Yes, he had indeed hidden his strength very carefully!" It was rare for someone to get away from under his eyes for so many years.
Gu Xijiu continued watching. Di Fuyi questioned her with a smile, "Aren't you worried that he will get away?"
Gu Xijiu answered with another question, "Since you have already prepared so much in advance, why would you leave out the possibility of him escaping from underground? Someone must be waiting for him down there."
"Brilliant! Who do you think is waiting for him?"
"Headmaster Gu or Celestial Master You!"
Di Fuyi sighed. He moved closer to her and planted a kiss on her cheek, "Xijiu, sometimes you are so scarily brilliant!"
Gu Xijiu was flattered, "I will take that as a compliment. How could your fiancée be stupid? You could have easily sold me out on countless occasions if I were someone stupid."
Turning her attention back to the scene at the hall, she heaved a sigh of relief, "There are three out of five heaven's gift disciples present at the scene, in addition to the four messengers and headmaster Gu. All of them are well-known masters, and so they must have set up an inescapable trap for him. He cannot possibly get away even with his capabilities!" It was no wonder that Di Fuyi could stay so calm while watching the scene.
Di Fuyi smiled softly, but the look in his eyes was sharp, "I did not want to risk anything while catching him."
Gu Xijiu pondered, "In my opinion, Rong Che must have quite many followers under him since has been wandering around the city for so many years, right? Why hasn't anyone showed up to rescue him now that he is in danger?"
"There are ten of them among the imperial soldiers, twelve among the maids, eight among the eunuchs, six among the important imperial officials, 36 among the businessmen outside of the palace, five among the guardians of the city, 120 soldiers…" Di Fuyi surprised her with an ongoing list of numbers.
Gu Xijiu turned to look at him, "All of them are his secret followers? I did not expect you to know about him so thoroughly! All of his followers must be arrested as well."
"Most certainly. While Rong Che was engaging with the Emperor, the forces on the outside were already acting against them, leaving no one behind."
Gu Xijiu was truly impressed, "Indeed, when the virtue climbs a post, the devil climbs ten."
Di Fuyi patted her gently, "Silly. It should be the other way round. When the devil climbs a post, the virtue climbs ten."
Just when she was about to argue with him, the scene on their display caught her attention, "He's coming out!"
A loud noise could be heard coming from underground. The entire hall was shaking.
"Boom!" The entire ground was breaking apart as though an earthquake was happening. A shadow emerged from the ground and landed slowly.
It was Rong Che.
Apparently, he had been ambushed underground and had suffered some damage. He appeared to be a little dirty, and his face was pale.
Messenger Jiangshan looked at him smilingly, "Did you encounter any trouble while you were underground? Headmaster Gu's invincible metal shield was a gift from The Lord himself. It is impossible for you to dig a hole through it even if you possessed a metal body."
Rong Che was speechless.
Headmaster Gu and Celestial Master You had been waiting for him underground. Qian Yueran and Hua Wuyan were positioned above him. Furthermore, the four messengers had surrounded him. These were people of utmost importance and pivotal status. Anyone of them could have easily taken care of the situation. Now, all of them were here at the same time.
