I Must Have an Explanation

The siblings gave each other a look before quickly realizing that hearing cups tumbling over in these occasions was frequent and would not warrant any surprise.
Luo Zhanyu strained his ears. He heard some vague form of speech in the adjacent room, as though a group of six or seven people was reveling in inebriation.
He breathed a sigh of relief and said, “Xijiu, just exactly what happened? Just tell me about it, I can’t allow anyone to bully my little sister!”
Gu Xijiu did not want to become like Xianglin’s wife  who harped on about her problems to everyone, so she only spun her wine glass and said, “Nothing, it’s just that our personalities don’t match and so we decided to break up.”
It was clear that Luo Zhanyu did not believe her convenient reason for her breakup and persisted with his questions, but to his dismay, he was unable to obtain the slightest piece of information from Gu Xijiu.
Luo Zhanyu became frantic. “Xijiu, if you don’t tell me, I’ll get an answer from the Celestial Master mansion myself! For this matter, I must have an explanation!”
Gu Xijiu felt worn out. “What type of explanation do you want?”
“You… Although you two did not enter into an engagement outside, you were betrothed to him in the forbidden land! How could he break up with you and leave?”
“So you’re saying that I could not let eight years of his sleeping with me go to waste?” said Gu Xijiu with a smile.
Luo Zhanyu did not expect her to be so brazen and brusque. After pausing for a while, he said with disapproval, “Xijiu!”
Gu Xijiu waved her hand in dismissal. “Brother, I know that you’re doing this for my sake, but I do not want anybody else being involved in my matters with him. I’ve already changed into another body that is brand new, still preserved my integrity and, moreover, it was me this time who forced him out of the engagement. If he didn’t agree to my wishes, I would’ve submitted myself to the prince consort.”
Luo Zhanyu was speechless. He only came to his senses after a while and said to her, “Xijiu, I don’t understand. It is evident that you love him so much that you had risked your life multiple times for him and would feel distressed at the slightest hint of his affliction. Why would you force him out of the engagement? This isn’t like you at all. What happened? Also, what’s the deal with the change of your body?”
He sized her up for a while before continuing, “I see that you’ve become more slender, but your external abilities are still strong and hardly different from before…”
He was an expert in medicine. Though he had not noticed before, now that he took a good look at Gu Xijiu, he finally saw that she was indeed virginal.
He became confused.
Gu Xijiu rubbed her eyebrows. For him to understand all of this, she would have to explain a lot of things, such as the clone body, the catastrophe, Di Fuyi’s identity as The Lord, Lan Jingke’s longstanding conflict with Di Fuyi
It would take her a whole two hours to explain all of this. She was mentally fatigued at the moment and did not feel like dwelling on the matter.
Moreover, even if she explained everything to Luo Zhanyu, the problem would not be solved, and she would make him worry about her as well. Therefore, Gu Xijiu just smiled at him and said, “Alright, it’s time to put this matter to bed. I don’t want to discuss it anymore. Hey, I remember that you knew how to bake a type of osmanthus cake. I’m craving for it right now. Why don’t you make me some as a consolation for my broken heart?”
After hearing what she said, Luo Zhanyu knew that he could not pursue asking her about this anymore and decided to go to Di Fuyi for answers sometime in the future.
Gu Xijiu seemed to know what he was thinking in his mind. “Brother, if you truly love me dearly, they don’t go to him. It’s impossible for anything to develop between himand me! If you go to him it’ll only make things awkward for me.”
Luo Zhanyu remained silent.
“Brother, promise me! Or you won’t ever see me again! I’ll stay true to my word!” Gu Xijiu asserted firmly.
