The SoCalled Perfect Match

Gu Xijiu looked at her surroundings and saw a sunset the size of a bowl. The sky was getting noticeably darker with a few orange clouds still floating in the sky.
“The sunset is very beautiful, but it doesn’t last; just like Huang Tu. Why do you have to be so obsessed with him? I’m your sunshine! I’m brighter than the sunset…”
Gu Xijiu remained silent while she was playing with a bamboo shoot. It was really awkward for her to listen to him expressing his feelings like a poet. The bamboo shoot in her hand was very young to the extent she could squeeze some juice out of it.
“Xijiu, the animals know where is good to be their habitat; hence, you should know who is best for you. We can go everywhere together; we can rule the world together and be at the top of the world together if you’re willing to be with me. We can spend time together every day and enjoy the wonders of life. We are a perfect match…” Long Moyan began to create a sweet dream for her.
Gu Xijiu looked at him with her head slanted to one side. “Did you just say we can go everywhere together and rule the world together? I’m the official Lord! You’re just a substitute Lord. The sky cannot accommodate two suns, and there are never two kings in a country.”
Long Moyan paused for a second. “Xijiu, we will be a team if we get married; hence, it does not matter who is the official Lord. Besides that, you’re a girl, you shouldn’t burden yourself with these responsibilities. As your husband, I should share your burden. I know you have no interest in power; I’ll help you manage everything and you only have to enjoy the credit. Let me handle the execution part.”
He sounded like he was going to work and fund the family and she could just spend her days relaxing and enjoying life. However, Gu Xijiu is not that type of person per se. Indeed, she had no interest in power. However, that did not mean she was a complete idiot on politics!
Mankind was greedy. Regardless of whether they were relatives or royal family members, they could kill each other for power. A family was just a joke when it comes to power, not to mention the throne of the Lord!
Prince Long already could not let go of the power even before he succeeds the role as a substitute Lord. If she were to be reborn 38 years later, he would have already abused his power. By that time, how would he hand over the throne? Perhaps, many disasters would have been created by him! In fact, he might even kill his wife to rule the world!
Gu Xijiu silently sensed her body again, and she realized the poison in the drink she had earlier had been eliminated out from her system while she was playing with the bamboo shoot.
Long Moyan was still busy trying to convince her. “Xijiu, we are meant to be together; we are a perfect match…”
Gu Xijiu suddenly interrupted him. “I’m the one in charge of my life, not the immortals and certainly not you! I never believed in predestined arrangements! Even if I only manage to spend one day with him, I would only be with him! I wouldn’t love you even if you could be alive as long as the world exists!”
Long Moyan frowned because he never expected her to be so stubborn even after talking to her for so long. “So, until now you still don’t believe in the predestined arrangement?”
“No!” Gu Xijiu answered with an icy tone. “I believe that we can always beat fate as long as we try our best! According to heavenly laws, I was supposed to be reborn after 38 years, but I’m already here now, right!?”
Long Moyan was speechless.
What she said was true; hence, Long Moyan ran out of words all of a sudden. In fact, he could not figure out this lady. She had disobeyed the heavenly laws and neglected the immortals several times…
