Don’t Be Silly
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
“Lan Jingyi is the sister of Jingke. Jingke loved her the most when she was alive. I made a promise to take care of both her brother and sister for the rest of their lives.” Di Fuyi continued in an icy tone, “Gu Xijiu, you’d better dismiss the idea of harming her.”
Gu Xijiu’s face was pale, but she still responded with a smile, “No one can ever scheme against my friend and expect no revenge from me. What if I insist that I will avenge her?”
Di Fuyi turned around. “I will, in turn, insist that your friends will be harmed as well.”
He ignored her and went straight into the garden to look for their traces.
Gu Xijiu stood very still. Her fingers were trembling by her side.
She would not mind if it were her that he threatened to harm. She was ready to risk everything. Furthermore, she was curious about what he would do to her. Would he kill her? Would he imprison her? Would he even confine her? She did not care as long as he hurt her. However, it was her friends that he targeted. He was a man of his words. What else could she do?
Her willful acts of damage had got Long Siye into trouble once. Because of her, his spiritual power had been significantly reduced; he even lost his status as a heaven’s gift disciple. Would she get the rest of her friends into other trouble?
Therefore, she could never take her revenge against Lan Jingyi. Even if Little Fox was dead, she could not make Lan Jingyi pay for her death. She could not tell how she truly felt right now, whether it was frustration, grief, or helplessness.
The thought filled her with indignation. She took a deep breath, trying to suppress her resentment over his threat.
She told herself that there was nothing to be mad or sad about. It was normal for this stranger to come and threaten her, for he cared about the safety of his lover’s sister more than anyone else. He was merely a stranger to her after all. Hence, she tried to adjust her emotional state to calm down.
Then, she decided to continue her search in the plum garden. Suddenly, the directed audio spell started to flicker at her waist. It was Yan Chen. He was anxiously waiting for her news.
Along the journey, Gu Xijiu would stay in touch with Yan Chen every time she resurfaced to catch a breath. She would update him of her current location for him to follow the path.
Since they both agreed that there must be something wrong with the plum garden, she decided to call her friends and ask them for their assistance.
Once everything had been carefully arranged, she turned and saw Di Fuyi standing not too far away, seemingly waiting for her.
She looked away and wanted to check out other places.
“This place is highly dangerous. You and I should go together.” Di Fuyi approached her.
“That is unnecessary! We should do it separately. It will be faster.” Gu Xijiu turned around and decided to leave.
Di Fuyi held onto her sleeve tightly. “Don’t be silly.”
“Screech!” There was a sound of clothes being ripped. It was Gu Xijiu’s sleeves. She took a step back and answered icily, “Di Fuyi, when did you become so protective over women? The plum garden is vast. It will be much faster if we search for them separately.”
“Are you still mad at me? I am not showing any bias towards Lan Jingyi. I have checked the traces along the way and am sure that someone has been controlling her. It is not her intention to kidnap Lan Waihu. She…”
“Haha! I understand. Don’t worry. I will not harm her.” She interrupted him with a sneer. Having nothing more to talk about with him, she teleported and disappeared.
She remembered a quote from the modern era, saying how open-hearted and graceful it was for a modern couple to befriend each other one another after they broke up, even knowing the other halfhad betrayed them. They could even visit one another occasionally as if they were still close friends.
She felt that it was theright thing to do back then, but it all seemed likecomplete nonsense now.
If one could still forgive and treat his or her ex-lover like a friend even after a betrayal, it was surely not true love that they had been through.
In her case, she could never treat Di Fuyi as a friend ever again. It was either love or complete isolation from one another.
