Gu Xietian was mildly against the idea, but Gu Xijiu had already made up her mind. There was nothing he could do to change it. They made an agreement that she would have to come home early on the wedding day as she needed time to wear the phoenix coronet and her wedding robes.
It was the third day of March, a very beautiful day indeed.
It was a suitable day for a wedding.
It was the most anticipated day for all the people of the Starry Crescent Land. They had been eagerly waiting for the big day.
The ten-mile long street was very well decorated with red festoons to celebrate the day. By the street, people stood to wait. All of them dressed fully in red, as though it was time for another New Year.
Qian Lingyu, Yan Chen, Lan Waihu, Baili Ce, Gu Canmo, and their friends from the forbidden land were all present as the guests from the bride’s side.
All of the aforementioned people were of noble status. They were not the type of people that were normally approachable by Gu Xietian. They even offered their helping hands for the wedding. To Gu Xietian, their presence came as both a surprise and astonishment. He was still very glad to have them.
He understood that they were here only for his daughter. He believed that his daughter’s wedding would be the most magnificent; one that was incomparable for any other woman on earth.
The sound of aflute came floating in the air. The melody of the flute was very pleasant and lively. It fitted well into the sounds of the wedding gong and drum, lifting the spirits of every listener as the band played on.
As the music slowly began, the house steward came and happily announced their arrival, “They are here!”
Gu Xijiu was already well dressed in the room. Her makeup was done by the best wedding chaperon from the palace. Her dress was from Di Fuyi, so it was surely exquisite. The dress perfectly complemented her beauty, as ethereal as the rosy clouds that suffused the evening skies. She was beautiful and even more charming with the dress. All her servants could not keep their eyes from her as they continued to admire her beauty in awe.
Lan Waihu was obviously astonished as well. She looked at Gu Xijiu with eyes full of admiration. She clearly respected and adored Gu Xijiu.
Gu Xijiu sat waiting anxiously for Di Fuyi’s arrival. She could only feel at ease when she finally saw his face. She was as anxious as a baby who refused to leave her mother’s side even for a second.
Like any other girls, Gu Xijiu looked forward to having a wedding of the century for her own. Her biggest wish was to have a grand wedding, one that was witnessed by all when she finally married him. She would become his wife and share his journey, for better or for worse.
Her wish was finally coming true. She would be the happiest bride if not for the fact that Di Fuyi was about to pass away. She shook her head to dismiss the thought. She did not wish to be reminded by these bad thoughts on her wedding day. There was still time. In two and a half months, she was sure that she would eventually find a way. She would not stop until she reached her goal. Especially when it was about Di Fuyi, it was impossible for her to give up, not until the very end.
She could hear the music slowly getting louder. Her place was very crowded, bustling with noise and excitement. However, the sound of the flute could clearly suppress all noises and was heard all around as it kept pouring in. It was him! He had finally arrived. He played the wedding song personally, which was a first.
Di Fuyi never played by the rules. This time was no exception. Excitement filled her heart. She could not wait to see him.
The people outside were all cheering madly as Di Fuyi’s escort came flying in the sky, instead of traveling on foot. The lead escort was a very well known band, which was formed together by the most excellent artists.
