“Have you heard about anything unusual in your travels?” Gu Xijiu tried to get some information.
She was still the National Celestial Master. Di Fuyi should have announced the deaths of her and Rong Jialuo after he returned. The citizens of the three kingdoms should be in a heated discussion.
Long Moyan seemed surprised. “What unusual stuff? Everything seems to be calm recently.”
Gu Xijiu paused for a while. She asked, “Then why were you staring at me just now?” She thought that he knew she “died”, and found it odd that there she was alive.
Long Moyan sighed. “Your appearance… I found it hard to identify you.”
Gu Xijiu sat in silence for a moment. “You haven’t heard any news about me?”
Long Moyan was startled. He sighed again. “I’ve heard some things; they should be rumors.”
Gu Xijiu furrowed her brows. “What rumors?”
“Rumors that you’re now staying at The Lord’s side training attentively and disregarding all worldly affairs. Some have even said that The Lord had intentions of passing the mantle to you…”
Gu Xijiu let out a laugh. “He is The Lord and not an emperor. He can’t age or die. How could he pass the mantle to anyone? This rumor is ridiculous.”
Long Moyan laughed as well. “That’s why I said rumors couldn’t be trusted.”
Gu Xijiu lowered her eyelids slightly and pondered. What is Di Fuyi trying to do by not announcing her death?
Would he use that body to revive Lan Jingke?
Did he remove the souls from it?
As Di Fuyi could gather souls, would it not have been easy for him to retain her Sense Soul?
Gu Xijiu did not know how to examine spirits and could not detect if her Sense Soul was missing; she had to put the question aside. She laughed lightly in her heart at the thought of it.
She had already died once and relinquished her body. She would have no ties with that person ever again. In that person’s eyes, she should be already dead, right?
Then she would not have to live with the identity of Gu Xijiu anymore and could let go of that baggage. She could change her identity and her name and roam in this world freely.
“Prince Long, I have a request for you.”
“Hmm? Tell me about it.”
“When you return, don’t tell anyone about ever seeing me. Okay?”
Long Moyan was a bit astounded, but he was never the inquisitive type. He nodded his head and replied, “Alright!”
When he raised his head again, he was taken by surprise. Gu Xijiu seemed to have already changed her appearance. Although she still had the same attire and makeup, her appearance was vastly different than before! He thought that he was caught in an illusion.
However, she was still a stunning beauty. “Xijiu, this is?”
“From now on, call me Chong Sheng.” Gu Xijiu stated a name commonly used in disguises.
“Chong Sheng?!” Long Moyan’s voice rose quite a few decibels, and his eyes turned brighter as well.
The realization finally dawned upon Gu Xijiu. She had taken the identity of Chong Sheng and went on adventures with Long Moyan before; he still remembers “Chong Sheng” quite fondly…
She coughed lightly and thought of a timely excuse. “It’s just an incognito name. Did it coincide with the name of someone you like? If so, I’ll just think of another.”
She was not adept at coming up with names. Before she could think of a good name, Long Moyan cut her off. “Don’t change it anymore; this name is great. A lot of people share the same name in this world; the name suits you quite well.”
Gu Xijiu would retain the name. She would not stay with Long Moyan for too long anyway. After giving Rong Jialuo a burial, she would disappear and seclude herself and not return to the Feixing Kingdom ever again. She could change her name again after that.
