Meng Suyan shook her head. “He was once a well-known gifted scholar in town,a very handsome man. I, too, feel that I am stupid.”
Gu Xijiu patted her shoulder gently. “You were young. It is not uncommon for youths to fall for scumbags. Luckily you are not married, so you can still break away from the relationship anytime. Although there are scumbags everywhere, good men still exist, just like my brother.”
Meng Suyan looked down and disagreed. “Brother Luo is a good man, but… Xijiu, I do not want to talk about the relationship anymore.”
Gu Xijiu understood. Meng Suyan had been in love with the same man for so many years. Even though it did not end well, she could not possibly let it go so quickly, as though nothing had ever happened. She needed time to heal.
Meng Suyan was, after all, a big-hearted woman. The conversation was able to alleviate her pain. She put behind her own concern and asked Gu Xijiu in return, “Xijiu, when are you and Celestial Master Zuo going to be married? I am still waiting to celebrate your marriage.”
Gu Xijiu laughed out loud. “There are many things to be done, so he is very occupied. It is just a process, so there is no rush. I will inform everyone when the date is set.”
They continued drinking for a while. Feeling a little tipsy, Gu Xijiu decided to leave. Almost drunk, she wanted to teleport her way back to the general’s residence, but she ended up at the bank of a stream instead. She almost fell into the water!
She stood herself still and looked around. The place seemed a little familiar. After some thought, she recalled an incident that happened not long after she traveled through time to be here, where a stranger, who claimed to have hostilities between them, took her liberties and lifted her clothes. She was unfortunately exposed to the soldiers who were nearby.
The stranger had indeed given her a difficult time. She was frustrated back then, but as time went by, it turned out to be a funny, bittersweet memory.
She sat down on a rock and thought about what happened. When she first arrived, she took off all his clothes, leaving him with only a pair of underwear. She even touched his private part before she left, thus triggering him, which was why he claimed to have grudges against her.
Time passed by so quickly. A lot had happened since then, so she sat reminiscing the past. After a long while, she finally realized that it was already midnight.
She could not help but wonder where he was and what he was doing. She had a sudden urge to see him. Abruptly, she took out her audio spell and tried to call him.
The spell flickered, but even after a while, there was still no answer. She looked at the moon and wondered. ‘Is he already asleep?’ She decided that it was too late. She would call him again the next day. Before she turned off the call, he finally answered. His voice was clear and hoarse.“Xijiu?”
Gu Xijiu’s heart was filled with immense excitement. “When are you going to visit and propose to me?” She responded without giving much thought.
He was quiet for a moment. “Xijiu, I still have many things to attend to. Let’s talk about it after this,” answered Di Fuyi, firmly.
Gu Xijiu was at loss for words.
Hesitatant, she continued, “Actually, there is not much trouble with the proposal. You only have to show up and explain the situation. We will then have a ceremony to prove that we are married.” Their marriage was well concealed. Except for those who were with them at the forbidden land, none of the outsiders knew that she was already his wife.
Di Fuyi smiled and said gently, “Xijiu, are you calling me at this hour just to tell me about that?”
