As soon as the shopkeeper looked up, he saw a man standing at the door. The man stood under the light and was holding a green bamboo umbrella in his hand. The person under the umbrella was all white; even his hair seemed silvery white. The individual looked like a snow sculpture. Although he did not wear a mask, his face could not be seen. The shopkeeper did not know when this person entered, so he was shocked when he saw him.
The shopkeeper subconsciously put the jade teapot in his sleeve and asked, “Sir, are you coming to…”
He could not finish his sentence because that person lifted his sleeve and the jade teapot in his hand flew over to him. The shopkeeper was shocked! When he was about to rush over, the snowy white man acted in lighting speed and struck the shopkeeper on his forehead with a piece of paper. He was frozen and could not move at all.
After some time, he finally recovered. His legs were numb, and he fell to the ground within seconds. The piece of paper on his forehead fluttered. He subconsciously took it and saw that it was a 1,000 ingot paper note.
Gu Xijiu said that she wanted to buy Long Siye a drink, but it was Chinese New Year eve, so there was no restaurant operating tonight. She walked along the street from the beginning till the end with Long Siye but did not find any restaurant that was open.
How could they not operate? She wanted to spend money but had nowhere to spend it! Gu Xijiu stood on the corner of the street. She looked at a restaurant and seemed to be pondering.
Long Siye was still with her all the way but knew that she was feeling hurt by Di Fuyi. He suggested, “Why don’t you invite me to your house for a drink?”
Gu Xijiu shook her head. “My house is too crowded…”
Her house had too many members living there and tonight was the few times that everyone would be home to have their reunion dinner. If she went back home, she would be surrounded by everyone, and there would be no peace for her.
Long Siye pondered for a moment before giving a new suggestion. “Let’s go to Tianwen Mountain.”
“It is too far!” Gu Xijiu shook her head again.
Long Siye sighed. “With your current skill, it will take only two hours. I have great wine at my place, and you can drink freely!”
Gu Xijiu was stunned. She pondered about his offer and finally nodded. “Alright!”
She directly performed the Ground Shrinking technique and held Long Siye’s hand. Two of them disappeared from the place instantly. The Ground Shrinking technique could shrink a land of a thousand miles into a hundred miles. Therefore, the distances of a few thousand miles had been shortened to a few hundred miles. With their speed, they took less than an hour to reach Tianwen mountain.
Back in the town, a figure stood in the snow. All one could see washis blue umbrella and long sleeves. He looked at the place where Gu Xijiu and Long Siye disappeared. After standing still for a long while, he coughed and turned away.
Inside the Pavilion Zhuochen in the Tianwen Mountain, there was a small bamboo table with two bamboo chairs. There were a few dishes on the small table thatwere cooked by Long Siye. The wine served was the best wine in the Tianwen Mountain. The taste was also her favorite – green plum.
Gu Xijiu sat opposite of Long Siye. They chatted while savoring the best wine she had tasted. A few years ago, he was her instructor and she was a killer. They used to sit opposite each other. At that time, she wanted to marry him, and he was wondering how to make it happen.
Unfortunately, an accident happened, and their relationship had no turning back. Now when they were sitting opposite each other, Long Siye felt like the world separated them.
“Xijiu, can we start over again?” Long Siye blurted out.
