Gu Jinyuan could clearly sense that he was inching toward death. His consciousness had become blurry. If not for the fact that his cultivation level had increased quite a lot in the tomb of the Spacetime Emperor, he would not have been able to last until now.
This was all thanks to Xue Fanxin. If not for her… Strange, why would he think of her at this time? He even wanted her to save him… He was a man, but he actually wanted a woman to save him. He was so useless.
Just as Gu Jinyuan was mocking himself, he suddenly heard a bang as if the door had been kicked open.
Gu Jinwei wanted to continue hitting Gu Jinyuan, but he had no choice but to stop when he heard the abrupt sound. He turned back and saw a group of strangers barge into the ruined dungeon. All of them looked unfriendly, making him feel a little afraid. He asked nervously, “Who are you? What are you doing here?”
The newcomers ignored Gu Jinwei and stood on both sides, opening a path.
At this moment, Xue Fanxin walked in and read the situation inside. When she saw the chained Gu Jinyuan riddled with injuries and on his last breath, she was enraged. She was so angry that she wanted to kill someone. She glared at Gu Jinwei, who was still holding the bloody whip, and gritted her teeth. “You beat him up like this?”
Gu Jinwei was quite frightened by the aura Xue Fanxin emitted, but he still endured it and asked with a trembling voice, “Who… who are you? What do you want? I’ll be the Young Master of the Heavenly Treasure Trading Company soon, so I advise you not to act recklessly. Those who go against the Heavenly Treasure Trading Company will definitely not have a good ending.”
Xue Fanxin ignored him. Her rage intensified, and she said, “Since you hit him, you have to pay double the price.”
“If you dare to touch me, the Heavenly Treasure Trading Company will definitely not let you off.”
“If the Heavenly Treasure Trading Company wants to protect you, then I won’t let them off either. Chain him to the wall and whip him.” Xue Fanxin could not even be bothered to ask about his identity. She went over to see how Gu Jinyuan was doing.
When Gu Jinwei saw Xue Fanxin approach, he immediately pointed his whip at her. “Stop, don’t come over, or I—”
Before he could finish speaking, he was subdued by the Night Shadow Guards behind Xue Fanxin. The whip in his hand was also taken away, and he was chained to the wall.
“What are you doing? I’m the Young Master of the Heavenly Treasure Trading Company. You can’t treat me like this. You can’t…” Gu Jinwei struggled with all his might and kept using the Heavenly Treasure Trading Company to scare the other party. Unfortunately, it was useless.
Xue Fanxin realized that Gu Jinyuan’s injuries were serious. Apart from his whip injuries, there were also knife wounds. They were so deep that white bones could be seen. If not for his strength having increased greatly, how could he have endured till now? He would have long stopped breathing and reported to the King of Hell.
Gu Jinyuan was originally in despair and waiting for death to come, but unexpectedly, Xue Fanxin saved him. This made him see hope again. He forced himself to take a breath. No matter how painful his injuries were, he could still smile. He said happily, “You saved me again. I owe you another life.”
Just now, he had secretly sworn that if anyone could save his life, he would acknowledge them as his master.
Perhaps this was the will of the heavens to make him acknowledge Xue Fanxin as his master.
