Rong Jialuo was already ‘eaten’ by Mo Zhao; so, the person she killed was technically Mo Zhao. Anyhow, she felt sorry and guilty to Rong Jialuo, especially since she treated him as her good friend. She had to attend his funeral to pay her last respect.
It was a long journey from the ice land to the Feixing Kingdom; it would take at least eight days to return to the capital based on the speed of Long Moyan’s flying lion. That’s not even taking into account the breaks they will take along the journey.
Crowds of people began to appear in the distance once they left the abandoned ice land. In the evening of the next day, both of them finally arrived in a city and checked-in to a tavern for a break. When they had some snacks in the restaurant, Gu Xijiu finally overheard someone talking about herself and The Lord. In fact, quite a number of people in the crowded restaurant were talking about the two of them.
“You know what? I saw The Lord’s vehicle yesterday!” Someone initiated a conversation in excitement.
Another man at the same table immediately asked, “Are you serious? How does it look like this time? Is it the same blue crystal carriage?”
“Of course not. The Lord frequently changed vehicles. This time, it was a purple crystal carriage… It was so beautiful! Sigh, I don’t have many words to describe it!” The first man sounded very excited!
“Which one of The Lord’s vehicles have been ugly? What’s there to be so surprised?” Someone at the other table nearby interrupted.
“True! Oh right, did you see the National Celestial Master in The Lord’s carriage?” Someone asked all of a sudden.
“Of course! She was in the cabin. Although they did not come out, the crystal carriage was transparent; so I could see her.” The man could not stop talking.
Everyone was in a heated discussion.
Long Moyan took a glimpse at Gu Xijiu and then pretended to ask the witness. “May I know when you saw The Lord’s carriage?”
“It was yesterday’s evening.” The man answered confidently.
Long Moyan had bumped into Gu Xijiu yesterday, before evening! He paused for a moment and then continued, “Are you sure the lady inside the carriage was the National Celestial Master?”
“Of course! Other than Miss Gu, who else is qualified to take the same carriage with The Lord? They were not only taking the same carriage; The Lord even wrapped Miss Gu in one of his arms.” Although he could not see their features clearly, he could see their figures.
Undoubtedly, no one had the guts to judge The Lord, and they definitely did not dare to talk about the fact that he had such an intimate interaction with a lady.
Long Moyan took a glimpse at Gu Xijiu again. She remained silent and sipped a mouthful of alcohol as a smile grew on her face.
It seemed that Di Fuyi had resurrected Lan Jingke… They even openly took a stroll on the street intimately. Perhaps, he wanted the citizens to support her, and he wanted to acknowledge her as his partner publicly. However, why he did not reinstate her original identity? What was on his mind to let her live with Gu Xijiu’s name?
Perhaps, Lan Jingke was willing to be Gu Xijiu since she accepted the body? But Lan Jingke was also someone with a high ego; was she really willing to live with someone else’s name?
In a similar manner, Gu Xijiu did not want to live with Lan Jingke’s identity, even though it meant that she could be the empress of the mermaid kingdom and she could easily get all the power of the mermaids.
The pain inside was tearing her apart again. She took another sip of alcohol so that she could swallow the bitterness in her throat.
Suddenly, there was chaos outside when she was quietly pondering. Someone cheered with surprise, “Look! The Lord’s vehicle! The Lord is here again!”
