Gu Xijiu checked him carefully to make sure it was indeed him. “Celestial Master Zuo, long time no see.” She responded with a tight smile.
Di Fuyi did not know what to say. Before they could even start a conversation, Gi Xijiu walked away. Lately, Di Fuyi had been ever more elusive, coming and going like a shadow. This started even before they lost contact because of the broken amulet. He just disappears again and again, leaving no clue behind.
She had not seen his face since the big fight. Gu Xijiu thought that he must have been busy interrogating Fairy Queen Li, so she waited patiently for his reply instead. However, he fell out of touch for several days, again. He did not come to see her, neither did he call or send her any messages.
She could always contact him first, but it did not feel quite right for her.
Gu Xijiu could somehow tell that he was starting to avoid her indirectly. Lovers could always know the little things quickly, especially when they were still madly in love. To prove her point, she decided not to contact him first and waited for him patiently instead. In the end, the results were as expected- disappointing.
His sudden emergence made her even angrier, because he acted as though nothing had happened between them. She did not want to talk to him, so she left. Di Fuyi stood his ground and watched as she slowly walked away. He did not chase after her.
Gu Xijiu was not expecting him to stand frozen. When she left, she chose to walk on her feet, not to teleport. He could always reach her easily if he wanted to. After a while, she stopped and looked back. He was no longer standing there.
Gu Xijiu was helpless. Upset, she wondered if she was being too petty or perhaps too sensitive. She shook off the thought and proceeded to look for Luo Zhanyu.
Luo Zhanyu was staying in a hotel. When she arrived, he was still in practicing. She waited until he was finally done and asked, “Are you not going to reunite with him?”
Luo Zhanyu shook his head and answered firmly, “No!”
Gu Xijiu kept quiet and sat contemplating about something else. Luo Zhanyu saw her expression and realized something was not right. “Xijiu, you seem upset.”
He could feel her anger burning from within but Gu Xijiu said nothing. Luo Zhanyu was reminded by a sudden thought. “By the way, Di Fuyi once said that he was going to hold a grand wedding for you. Has he informed the general yet?”
Gu Xijiu was obviously irritated. He had not proposed yet. He did not even show up at all.
Luo Zhanyu could tell from her face. “Hasn’t he proposed yet?” He stood abruptly from his chair. “What is Di Fuyi thinking? It has been a week already. He may need time to prepare for the wedding, but the proposal will not take him too much time, right? It is easy. Gu Xietian will agree immediately for both of you to get married! There is no reason to refuse.”
Gu Xijiu did not wish to hear anyone talk bad about Di Fuyi. She disagreed. “He has been busy dealing with a multitude of things for the past few days. It is normal that he cannot find time to do it. After all, we are already married. The wedding is just something ceremonial. There is no rush.”
Unimpressed, Luo Zhanyu frowned. “It does not take him too much time for a proposal. How busy can he be?” Suddenly, a thought came to his mind. “Is he preparing the wedding secretly without telling you so that he can give you a huge surprise?”
Gu Xijiu was moved. There was hope in her eyes. Di Fuyi seemed like someone who could use the idea. There was no other reason for him to keep postponing the proposal. That must be it!
