Gu Xijiu had a noble status now, even young masters fromrich families had to bow to greet her if they saw her. Thus, Long Moyan stood up and greeted Gu Xijiu.
Gu Xijiu was annoyed by these courtesies, hence, she waved and allowed him to be seated. Gu Xijiu had a relatively good impression of Long Moyan. Hence, she decided to stay for a chat. Gu Xietian was very happy with that, and he just excused himself and left them alone at the pavilion after a brief introduction.
Certainly, Gu Xijiu felt helpless and annoyed because she knew it was a date arranged by Gu Xietian. She did not want to entertain him anymore and was about to leave with an excuse. Suddenly, Long Moyan sighed. “National Celestial Master, please allow me to ask this question. Were you forced to come on a date with me?”
Gu Xijiu did not expect him to bring this up. “You’re right,” said Gu Xijiu as she looked at him.
“You hate it?”
“Me too. My father has been pushing me every day, but someone has already won my heart, and I wouldn’t get married if I can’t find her. Nonetheless, my parents just couldn’t stop nagging me…” Long Moyan came clean about his situation.
Gu Xijiu was surprised. “So?”
“I have an idea; but it would be great if you could give me your opinion.”
“Since both of us hate speed-dating, why not we pretend to date and meet every three to five days? This could probably stop them from forcing us, and both of us could also get some peace.”
In fact, that was not a bad idea. After all, many young people in the modern era also got people to act as their partner to entertain their parents who forced them to date.
She did not expect Long Moyan to know of this modern strategy as well. Since Gu Xijiu was annoyed by Gu Xietian’s arrangements, she decisively agreed after a quick ponder.
Therefore, they became slightly closer after they came to an agreement. Gu Xijiu asked, “Since you already have someone in your heart, why did you not marry her?”
Long Moyan sighed. “I cannot find her…”
Gu Xijiu frowned while Long Moyan continued, “Honestly, I’ve seen her only once. I have tried my best to find her but my efforts have been in vain…”
Love at first sight?
Gu Xijiu seemed to be interested to know more. “What’s her name? Perhaps, I can help you.” The Anying Association was now under her supervision, and they were very efficient in collecting information. Thus, they should be able to find the girl if Long Moyan was willing to tell her.
Long Moyan said without hesitation, “Her name is Chong Sheng. I’ve met her at the Mysterious Ice Land…”
Gu Xijiu remained silent. Was this destiny calling? Chong Sheng was created as a fake identity.
Gu Xijiu sighed. “Is this considered love at first sight? Maybe she gave you a fake name? Or perhaps even her nickname. Why are you so obsessed to find her?”
Long Moyan smiled bitterly. “I should have known. However, I can’t get her out of my mind… Anyway, let’s find her first.”
“What if she is dead?”
“Please, don’t curse! I believe she’s still alive.”
Gu Xijiu was speechless.
Alright, she should find another possibility. “Perhaps, she has gotten married?”
“If she found her one and only, I’ll give her my blessing… However, I must find her and make sure she’s done so.”
Gu Xijiu was speechless again.
