Gu Xijiu took the soup from him and immediately started eating. It was good that was willing to eat, and soon, she finished the entire bowl of soup.
Long Siye was relieved that she was not trying to commit suicide by refusing food. Quietly, he observed her. He could tell that there was something different about her now.
Very soon, Long Siye discovered more and more of her changes.
When she initially came to meet him, he knew that she was keeping her countenance with a forced smile. She could not get over her past relationship and was lost in her thoughts.
However, the incident with Di Fuyi served as a second chance for her to have a physical transcendence and rebirth from her previous experience. She started to have a normal daily routine and practice. She would talk to him about all sorts of mental cultivation methods. She started to perform various alchemies and even managed to extract some level eight pills. In order for her to perform the alchemy, she had to be completely focused without the slightest distraction from her personal life. Once she was distracted, the process would definitely turn out to be a complete failure with either useless or bad quality pills.
If she managed to extract high-quality pills of level eight, it would mean that there was nothing that could distract her from the devotion of her duties anymore. She could finally get over her past relationship.
She seemed to be more energetic, and the way she talked became gradually optimistic. Enthusiastically, she started to indulge herself in the things that she loved to do and performed well. She seemed to have abandoned the burden that she had been dragging for so long. Her great display of vigor was proof of her revitalization.
Her new change came as a great relief to Long Siye. He was very relieved. She was once again the Gu Xijiu that he once knew. However, no one knew the price that she had to pay for her transformation.
Gu Xijiu spent two more days in Tianwen clan before returning to her residence. Gu Xijiu had always been missing, so Gu Xietian was not really concerned about her recent disappearance. He came to visit her and was relieved to see that she was doing well.
On the first day of her return from the Tianwen clan, Gu Xietian could already tell that there was something different about his daughter. There were many affairs that she needed to attend to as National Celestial Master. Moreover, she had many friends that would continuously stay in touch with her. On the first day of her return, she immediately started to deal with all kinds of matters. She managed her work efficiently. Her gathering with her friends was terrific, too. She would no longer stare blankly at the wall and get distracted in her thoughts.
On the second night, while she was meditating in her room, she noticed that there was something wrong in her room. Immediately, she opened her eyes.
There was a stranger in her room. There was a man of white robe and white hair. He was even wearing a white mask to cover up his face, leaving only his bright eyes. It was Di Fuyi.
That was incorrect. It was The Lord, also known as Huang Tu. The attire was a clear display of his current identity as The Lord.
Their eyes met for a while. Then, Gu Xijiu rose from her bed and greeted him formally with a bow. “Welcome, My Lord. What is the matter?”
The courtesy in her response was polite and considerate. She knew her manners, leaving Huang Tu no chance to be picky about her flaws.
Huang Tu observed her for a moment, as though trying to find some clues from her expression. However, Gu Xijiu was calm even under his intense glare. She did not show any waves of emotion.
“Gu Xijiu, you are now the National Celestial Master of the kingdom, so you should take up your responsibility. There will be a test for the identity of heaven’s gift disciples tomorrow. You will be the one to host the event.”
Gu Xijiu looked him in the eye and said, “My Lord, are you treating me like one of the heaven’s gifts disciple now?”
In fact, all heaven’s gift disciples were his followers as well, like Long Siye, Hua Wuyan and the rest. They always acted according to his orders.
“No, your position is higher than the heaven’s gift disciples,” Huang Tu answered.
“Are you handing me the task of Celestial Master Zuo? Aren’t you worried that I may seize your authority?”
“I am not worried, as long as you are capable.” Huang Tu was not concerned.
Gu Xijiu could feel the chill in his tone, but her smile remained. “Can I say no?”
Huang Tu looked at her fixedly and answered, “You can say no, but you have to know that you are a little different.”
