Felt A Little Embarrassed

‘Have you given up? Or are you waiting for something? Di Fuyi, where are you?’
‘Things seem good for me. I have power, status, connections, friends… All of them are around me. Countless people envy me, and a myriad people who worship me. But why can’t I be happy? I still feel like crying when I dream about you at night?’
‘Di Fuyi, I want you to see what I have built and achieved!’
‘Di Fuyi, I miss you…’
‘If you come back, I will return this body to you! I don’t want to owe you anything.’
She drank liquor one mouthful after another, and she rarely refused any drink that was given to her. Unsurprisingly, she had been feeling tipsy.
“Xijiu, you can’t drink anymore!” A hand stretched over and held her wrist that was holding a cup of beer.
She turned and saw the face of Long Siye.
“You will be drunk if you continue drinking.” Long Siye took away the glass in her hand. Although Gu Xijiu intended to indulge herself in being drunk, she knew her drinking ability too well. It was terrible!
It was not proper if she was drunk and misbehaved here. Therefore, she took the opportunity to say goodbye to Rong Jialuo and said that she was not feeling well. She was now the National Celestial Master, and her status was very honorable. No one would stop her if she wanted to leave.
Rong Jialuo and the group of ministers stood up and sent her out. Before she walked out of the main hall, there was a report from outside, “The custodian of Celestial Master Zuo, Mu Dian, has arrived!”
Mu Dian stepped into the main hall. He represented Celestial Master Zuo to send his regards. He also brought Chinese New Year presents to everyone there.
Except for emperor Rong Jialuo who gotten a jade scepter and a black iron sword, everyone else got the same presents which were a jade teapot set.
Celestial Master Zuo never gave people cheap stuff. The teapot was made of a special jade, which was very delicate and exquisite. Gifts were issued according to a list so there would not be any mistake. Gu Xijiu also got a small teapot set which was no different from others.
When Mu Dian issued her the gift, he wanted to say something but felt a little bit embarrassed. In his heart, even if his own master and Gu Xijiu had broken up, they used to be lovers. At the very least, he should have given her a more special gift.
Mu Dian felt like wanted to buy something else to give to Gu Xijiu on behalf of Celestial Master Zuo. However, he could not go against the order of The Lord.
Gu Xijiu looked at other people’s gifts and then looked at her own. She smiled. “Please send my thanks to your master.” She then put the jade teapot into her sleeve and strode out.
The wind outside was wildly harsh on Chinese New Year’s eve. Most people were busy at home, so there were not many pedestrians on the street. When the wind blew, the drunken feeling started to take its effects on Gu Xijiu. She could not see clearly and had blurry eyes. She seemed to see Di Fuyi vaguely.
Her transport was still waiting outside. When she walked out, her servants and driver came forward to carry her. Gu Xijiu felt flustered in her heart and did not want to sit in her ride. She asked the driver to leave first, and she tried to walk in the snow to released her tipsiness.
The driver followed her instruction and left while Gu Xijiu proceeded to walk alone on the street. Her dress fluttered in the wind. Since she reached such a high level of spiritual power, she was not afraid of any coldness anymore. She was only wearing a jade-white sheer dress on her right now.
