Can You See Me?

Occasionally, Di Fuyi would kiss her lips and call her ‘baby’. It was a very simple action; however, Gu Xijiu felt like crying as she watched the scene. Fortunately, she did not have tears in her current form; but, she could feel all the feelings she was supposed to have.
In fact, she had not wasted any of her efforts by following him around because she realized she recovered at a good speed. On the first day, her hearing and smell improved greatly. On the second day, she could taste the prayer items. On the third day, her sense of hearing was even more sensitive. She could already clearly hear conversations from a hundred miles away!
It was a night with a full moon again.
Di Fuyi got the staff of the tavern to get everything prepared so that the four messengers could have a good rest. Gu Xijiu somehow felt something was wrong with the four messengers as she witnessed them tear a few times. However, they always held it in and continued with the work assigned by Di Fuyi.
Gu Xijiu felt that Di Fuyi would probably take a good rest tonight. To her surprise, Di Fuyi made a tableful of food and asked the staff to place it in the garden.
He sat down with Gu Xijiu’s body in his embrace and looked up to the moon in the sky. He sighed. “Baby, today is the 15th of the month. You once said that 15th is always a day for a reunion, but we…” He paused. A moment later, he stuffed a pair of chopsticks into Gu Xijiiu’s hand.
“Xijiu…” He called her name softly. “All these are your favorite dishes; do you still like them now?”
Certainly, the body could not eat the food, while Di Fuyi did not dig in as well. However, Gu Xijiu, who was floating around, suddenly felt hungry as she looked at the tableful of dishes. Her senses were getting stronger recently just like how she used to feel before she died. However, that was the first time she felt hungry!
There was her favorite deep fried tiger prawn as well as sweet and sour fish displayed on the table. She could not control herself anymore and slowly moved toward the table. As she tried to grab the chopsticks on the table, she felt helpless.
In the end, she could only go close enough to smell the food in order to satisfy her desire…
Unfortunately, she was getting hungrier as she smelled it. She looked around and realized no one could see her. Decisively, she bent her body and took a bite… She tried very hard and could finally bite on the prawn’s antenna!
Hey, she could bite on solid food?! Gu Xijiu decided to try again. She bit the whole prawn! The prawn accidentally fell out from the plate when she tried to bite it. Sadly, Gu Xijiu did not like to eat food that is contaminated. Therefore, she gave up on that one and tried to take another prawn even though the first one was quite a big one.
This time, she gave her all and finally managed to take a prawn away from the plate after consuming all of her energy.
“Bang!” A glass fell in the ground and Gu Xijiu was shocked! Certainly, the prawn in her mouth also fell back onto the plate.
She naturally lifted her head and her gaze coincidentally met Di Fuyi’s shocked gaze! She was stiff and slowly walked away from the table after she stood up. “Can you see me?”
Unfortunately, Di Fuyi’s gaze did not follow her as she moved. His gaze was fixed on the big prawn which had fallen onto the plate.
After a short idle, he picked up the prawn with a pair of chopsticks. His fingers were stiff when he slowly brought the prawn nearer to his nose. He probably tried to smell the odor on the prawn.
Gu Xijiu anxiously looked at him as she was wondering whether she has left any ghostly saliva on the prawn…
