Lan Yaoguang blabbered on. Gu Xijiu heaved a heavy sigh. How could she not remember? Brother Huang, Huang Tu, Di Fuyi or even The Lord, they were all the same person.
“I remember,” she slowly answered. Her eyes swept across the hall. “Did he send me here? Where is he now?”
“He has some matters to attend to. He just left,” Lan Yaoguang explained. To ease her mind, he added, “Sister, don’t you worry. You are always on his mind. He has played a huge part in your resurrection. This is the body that he found for you. He is also the one who has collected all the parts all your soul, not forgetting the formation of this array. For six thousand years, he has always been busy trying to resurrect you.”
Gu Xijiu did not know what to say. She took a deep breath. Honestly, she was a little confused. She was very sure that she was Gu Xijiu, as she still had all of her memories. However, she was not sure if she was Lan Jingke, as she had some fragments of her memory as well.
Could it be that two souls were occupying the same body? Like Long Siye and Long Fan? Had Lan Jingke always been in her body, unnoticed? Was she the reincarnation of Lan Jingke?
She was with Di Fuyi in the crystal palace the night before. How did she end up in this body? Moreover, she was being mistaken as Lan Jingke, who had just been resurrected from the dead.
What was Di Fuyi trying to do? Gu Xijiu remained silent for a while. Then, she asked, “About Brother Huang… When did he leave?”
“About an hour ago,” he had an answer to every question. “Sister, I believe he is very busy. Starry Crescent Land is in a great mess now, so he has to sort a lot of things out. I think he will come to visit when the things are done.”
Bewildered, Gu Xijiu closed her eyes and rubbed her temples gently. She needed some space alone to think things through and resolve the complications.
“Who exactly are you?” Lan Jingyi, who had been quiet all this while, started to question her. She stared at Gu Xijiu cautiously.
Gu Xijiu ignored her. Honestly, she did not even know her own identity. Based on what she could recall, she had never been fond of Lan Jingyi. She signaled them to leave. “I need both of you to leave. I need some time alone.”
“You are Gu Xijiu, aren’t you?” Lan Jingyi refused to give in. She stared at Gu Xijiu with dark piercing eyes.
Gu Xijiu looked back and gave her a smile. “Lan Jingyi, when I left, you were only this big.” She gave a rough indication of her height. “I did not expect to see you being all grown up now. I remember you once broke a very precious vase in my room but blamed Yaoguang as the culprit instead. I had to punish you when I found out the truth. You became more obedient since then.”
The height that she pointed at was how tall Lan Jingyi was many years ago. Also, what she just told her was true. These were the things that Gu Xijiu could trace back from Lan Jingke’s fragmented memory.
Lan Jingyi was shocked. Lan Yaoguang’s eyes brightened up immediately. He was delighted and exclaimed, “Jingyi, don’t you say any nonsense now. She really is our sister. She still remembers how you used to behave when you were little. Surely, Gu Xijiu does not know these things.”
Lan Jingyi still found it hard to believe. “But…”
Lan Yaoguang immediately interrupted, “Alright, alright. My little sister, haven’t you been hoping that our sister would come back alive someday? Why have you become so suspicious, now that she is finally here with us? By the way, didn’t you say that you were going to make the best pastry for our sister when she woke up? Go on and prepare the pastry. Let our sister savor your crafts.”
