What kind of experience was it to watch the closest person you love walk step by step to death while being too helpless to do anything about it? Weak people would probably collapse into depression merely out of fear.Even Gu Xijiu was getting more and more anxious every passing day.
Fortunately, Di Fuyi still looked the same. He was still young and handsome; full of energy. However, the big star that represented him was already dull and crumbling. It looked like it could fall at any time.
Di Fuyi had just recently taught her about stargazing in the past month. It was extremely complicated. It was not just about observing the constellation or brightness of the stars. Through stargazing, one could see the rise and fall of a dynasty, as well as the fate of significant people. It was not something that could be learned overnight.
Although Di Fuyi did not have much time, he had to make sure that Gu Xijiu picked up all the skills she needed. Thus, he delayed the teaching until now. He expected that Gu Xijiu would spend a lot of time watching the stars in the future.
The more she watched, the more nervous she got. The more she looked at it, the more desperate she was. This was not unlike a situation where a person discovers that a terrible fate lies before them. They would choose to live differently and enjoy whatever time they have remaining.However, if that fate were to befall on their loved one instead, he or she would be very anxious and restless. It would only get worse with each passing day.
Gu Xijiu was now in this situation. The more she looked at the astrological map, the more uneasiness and fear she had! The pressure she had was enough to make her breathless. Upon observing the crumbling King Star, she was dying to fly up to hold it or support it from underneath.
After she learned astrology, she finally realized that the fall of the stars was irreversible and she did not have any method to change Di Fuyi’s fate.
She also talked about the condition with the occasional voice in her head. She begged her to show mercy. She could even transfer her remaining life to Di Fuyi if that were allowed. However,the messenger from the Upper Bound just sighed. It had to advise her to give up. Perhaps it was better just to cherish the time they had left together.
Gu Xijiu realized that she could not sleep well anymore. In fact, sometimes she could not even go to bed.The pain that she was about to endure from losing her beloved could not be described. On a scale, it was probably 100 times more painful than losing a relationship.
Of course, she did not want to add too much psychological pressure to Di Fuyi. On the surface, she still showed a relatively calm look, except for the fact that she was getting thinner.
After all, Di Fuyi could not do anything about his fate either. Although he looked the same, his energy level had been falling of late, and he began to feel easily tired.
If he had nothing to be concerned with, he would accept this fact very calmly. After all, he had lived for nearly 10,000 years, and he had already seen everything there was to see. He did not care about life and death.
However, now he had someone in his heart. He was eager for her warmth. He could not bear to leave her alone. He did not want her to be in pain. He was the one who caused the most pain for her, so he felt guilty even though he could not do anything about it.
Needless to say, he could not sleep very well either.He would often wake up in the middle of the night and find Gu Xijiu’s eyes closed. However, her lashes would be moving ever so slightly, indicating to him that she was just pretending.
There was once when he opened his eyes too quickly, so Gu Xijiu did not even have time to pretend to be asleep. Both of their teary eyes met each other!
Her small hand clasped his robes, and the bottom of her eyes was full of helplessness and fragility.
