Physical Transcendence And Rebirth (4)

Because of her incapability to deal with the taste of bitterness, Long Xi would always tease her by saying that an assassin should not possess such trait.
Gu Xijiu remembered answering, “An assassin is still a human with flesh and bones. It is normal to have one minor imperfection.”
Now, she could finally overcome her so-called imperfection.
The sweets would actually interfere with the effectiveness of the medicine, so Long Siye chose to make no further comment and filled another glass of water for her instead.
Gu Xijiu noticed that she was still in the territory of Tianwen clan. The place that she was currently staying must be one of the guestrooms.
After drinking the glass of water, she immediately put her fingers on Long Siye’s wrist.
Long Siye knew that she was worried about his condition, so he did not hide his wrist away and let her read his pulse. “Don’t worry, I am doing fine,” he explained.
“Didn’t he send you to the Distant Fire Land?” Gu Xijiu asked immediately. The question had been haunting her for days, even when she was unconscious. Long Siye’s spiritual power had been significantly reduced; she was concerned that he would no longer be able to tolerate the extreme heat.
In one of her many nightmares, she saw that Long Siye was burned alive and became entirely charred.
Long Siye shook his head. “No, he did not. He seemed to be occupied by another matter and left urgently.”
The Lord left in a hurry. Before he went, he did say that he would postpone the punishment regarding the Distant Fire Land and that they would talk about it soon. Swiftly, he then disappeared into thin air.
Gu Xijiu was relieved. Seemingly, it was Long Siye who had been taking care of her for the past few days.
She got him into trouble and yet he still lavished every care on her.
Gu Xijiu looked down in guilt. She did not know what to feel about it. There was a mixed feeling of gratitude and guilt.
She regretted her impulsive mistake. She should not have assumed that she was strong enough to be evenly matched with the man. It was a very dumb move. She promised not to repeat the same mistake.
However, she did not quite understand why Di Fuyi would become so infuriated. If he really wanted to find another body to revive his past love, she would be very happy to return the body to him. In that case, he would never have to look for another perfect replacement for Lan Jingke if the switch succeeded. Both of them could achieve two things in one go. What was he angry about, then?
If this were before, Gu Xijiu would easily overthink that the reason for his fury was because Di Fuyi hated to see her spiritual power being wasted. She would assume that his love for her still existed and that he still cared for her.
However, the recent series of events made it clearer for her to see that she should not, and would never again, think that he still cared for her.
The man was a man with a plan for everything he did. He was probably angry because her decision might have a critical impact on his overall strategy and mess up the entire plot.
Di Fuyi… Di Fuyi…
His name used to make her feel genuinely warm. Now his name was nothing but a bitter disappointment.
The room returned to its usual silence. Quietly, Long Siye read her pulse to monitor her condition. Her pulse was still weak, but stable.
Three days ago, she vomited blood because she was too agitated by her fury that was burning within. Also, it was one of the consequences of the unfinished procedure. Luckily, three days of careful treatment gradually nursed her back to health.
Her physical health was restored, but what about her emotions?
Her emotions were hurt more badly than her physical being. Other than her inconceivable murmur, she exhibited her suicidal thoughts while she was still unconscious. She seemed to have lost all hope.
Perhaps that was one of the reasons for his unconsciousness. Long Siye was very worried that she might not wake up.
Long Siye was worried that she might not want to live any longer. Immediately, he served her a bowl of hot fish soup to make sure she had something to eat. “Xijiu, come. Eat something.”
Gu Xijiu agreed instantly. “All right.”
