To Her Surprise, She Was Back Again

It was the Love Bracelet! It was the Love Bracelet that she used to have; the one that she could not simply take off no matter how she tried. The bracelet felt cold on her skin, which reminded her of its existence.
“Give me the mirror,” she finally demanded. The tone of her voice was a little icy. Her voice sounded a little young and tender.
Lan Yaoguang was surprised by her sudden request. He quickly proceeded to take a mirror for her and explained, “Sister, your original body no longer exists. Your current body is the one that he found for you. It fulfills all the conditions. Even though you do not look like how you used to be, this body is still a great one for you. Its spiritual power has already achieved level ten.”
Gu Xijiu ignored him. She took a look into the mirror and saw a demure, young lady in the prime of her life. Her brows were smooth and curved. Her pale lips looked somewhat pouty, complemented by a pair of bright, attractive eyes that were as dark as pure black gems, shimmering in dreamy light.
The birthmark on her forehead was gone, replaced by a mole of vermillion color in the size of a small coral bean. Its bright red color set was advantageous to her delicate skin. Her current appearance looked very familiar and amicable to her.
It was the body that she had been bearing in mind constantly. It was the original body of the sixth daughter of General Gu. She had always wanted to return to this body. Surprisingly, she was suddenly back into the body again.
How did that happen? Intuitively, she tried to sense the difference in her body. Her spiritual power was constantly circulating. When she abandoned the body, she was not even 17 years old yet. The body looked more matured now, more like in its twenties.
Last time, the spiritual power of the body was merely at the beginning of level eight. It was now at level ten. To her surprise, the body was able to achieve such advancement, even though it was constantly confined in the coffin. It was at the same level as the spiritual power of her soul.
“Sister? Sister?” Lan Yaoguang flicked his fingers before her eyes. He looked worried.
He saw Di Fuyi putting back the fragments of her sister’s broken soul into the coffin with his own eyes. He could tell that there was a faint sense of Lan Jingke’s spirit in Gu Xijiu’s body. More importantly, Di Fuyi had told him that when the body came alive, she would be his sister, Lan Jingke.
Di Fuyi would never lie to him. Or so he believed.
Lan Yaoguang saw her coming alive before his eyes. He knew that it was normal for her to get confused, as she had just woken up from her sleep for five thousand years. Di Fuyi once said that her temperament might be different when she woke up. It was possible that she no longer remembered any of them.
He was mentally prepared for the possibility, so he was not very surprised by Gu Xijiu’s abnormal behavior. However, deep down, he truly hoped that his sister would still remember him.
He raised his hands and dangled his fingers before her eyes to get her attention. Gu Xijiu was, after all, an assassin who had been through countless struggles and challenges. She had been trained to stay calm and still, regardless of how emotional she felt.
She swept his hand away and sat her body up to observe her surroundings.
She was located in a crystal hall, aligned with numerous crystal pillars. Coincidentally, all these crystal pillars were gleaming in seven-colored rays. There was a big white pearl that cast colorful lights on the pillars, making them look aglow with a magnificent pearly radiance.
She could recognize the array formation. There was some ancient mantra written on the crystal floor to support the formation. Gu Xijiu was no stranger to the mantra. It was Di Fuyi’s handwriting.
“Sister, this place has the richest spiritual power in the entire Blue Hill Continent. It is even better than anywhere else in the mundane world. Eight years ago, Brother Huang strengthened the place to channel all of its spiritual power to your body, which is why you can wake up from your slumber so quickly. By the way, do you still remember Brother Huang?”
