Do I Look So Vulnerable?

Luo Zhanyu grinned. “He is aware that she is our mother. He also knows that our mother has already remarried. He was quite sad for a few days, but after that, he suddenly got motivated and said that he would pursue her regardless. Even if she has kids with other people. Oh yes, this old man also felt that he was too old, so he dyed his hair. He also worked very hard to improve his spiritual power. He desperately wanted to increase it to level eight so that he could look younger.”
Gu Xijiu was speechless. This old man was really enthusiastic. Despite already reaching such a late stage in his life, he still acted crazily like a young man.
The shadow of Di Fuyi suddenly flashed in her mind. Seemingly, his age was much older than Gu Xietian; he could even be Gu Xietian’s great grandfather. That man was an immortal demon and never failed to scheme people. He had always been cunning whereas Gu Xijiu was just like an innocent child compared to him. That was why she had been fooled.
Her heart was in pain as if there was a fire burning sullenly. She quickly tried to dismiss his image. Luo Zhanyu rushed over from thousands of miles away at lightning speed.
When Gu Xijiu saw him, she was shocked! His face was full of dust, and his hair was messy. She was very touched. “Why did you come here so hastily?”
When Luo Zhanyu saw Gu Xijiu, he was also startled and circled her. “Why do I feel that you look even younger now? What skill have you practiced recently? Come on, tell me, what happened to you and Di Fuyi? How could he suddenly cancel the engagement?”
Gu Xijiu barely smiled. “You come so hastily just to ask me this question?”
Luo Zhanyu carefully looked at her face. Although Gu Xijiu still looked energetic, she could not hide her sorrow from him. Although his sister looked younger now, she seemed quite tired.
“Have you not eaten for two days? I will take you to dinner first, and we will chat while we are eating.” Luo Zhanyu pulled her up without waiting for her response.
The two went to a delicious restaurant. Luo Zhanyu personally cooked a few herbal dishes for Gu Xijiu. These dishes were all very beneficial to her body and also tasted very delicious. He served them in front of Gu Xijiu. “Come on, try my cooking.”
Gu Xijiu tasted a few mouthfuls and gave him a thumbs up. “Very nice! Your cooking skill is comparable to a master chef! When did you pick it up?”
Luo Zhanyu proceeded to sit across her and also feasted on the dishes. Suddenly, he shook his head and sighed. “You always like your food with mild flavor while these dishes are a bit salty. Are you lying to me or are you unable to taste the salt?”
Gu Xijiu was stunned. Although she looked fine, she could not taste anything. Naturally, she could not discern whether the dishes were good or bad.
She took a and slowly ate. She smiled. “Brother, you have overthought. Just like anything else, tastes can change. In the past, I did like to eat light tasting food, but now I like to eat salty food, so your cooking is just right for my taste,”
Luo Zhanyu felt discomfort in his heart. He tightened his fist that was holding a glass and said, “Xijiu, you don’t have to pretend to be strong in front of me. If you want to cry then cry; I’ll give you my shoulder to lean against.”
Gu Xijiu eyes flickered for a moment, but she instantly smiled after that. “I am not so vulnerable. It is just a breakup. I have adjusted to it.”
When she just finished this sentence, she suddenly heard something shatter in the adjacent room. It sounded like a wine glass had fallen to the floor.
