A Real Dilemma
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
It was highly possible. If the flashbacks were based on true events, she once saw that they were already married. If so, she would no longer be a virgin.
Determined, she dashed quickly into her room to check her own body. A few moments later, she tidied her clothes and stood with a mixture of feelings of rejoice and disappointment. She was still a virgin.
Was her speculation leading her to the wrong direction? Were they not ready to take their relationship to the sexual level? However, the couple in her flashbacks was clearly intimate.
Bothered and bewildered, something about the whole thing just did not add up. She disarmed the seal that had been suppressing the Firmament Stone’s spiritual intelligence and waded straight to her point. “How was I related to the previous Lord?”
The Firmament Stone stammered. “What… What about the previous Lord?” Did its master recall anything about the previous Lord? It did not seem quite possible, as the loss of memory about the previous Lord was an order of the heavenly law. How could she possibly remember him?
To her disappointment, she heaved a sigh and said, “So, you do not know about him as well.” She sat by the table and stared blankly at the leather garment.
The Firmament Stone was at a loss for words. She spoke of her thoughts out loud, as though she was talking to the Firmament Stone. “I think that I am somehow related to the previous Lord. Hallucinations occur to me very often now. I can see a man and a woman together, as if madly in love. They behave very intimately like they are already married. I think that the man and the woman represent the previous Lord and I. I have even checked my own body, but I am still a virgin.”
The Firmament Stone did not know what to say. It did not expect the heavenly law had removed every single trace of Di Fuyi from the world, thus restoring her virginity. However, if the heavenly law had indeed removed every single trace, its master would not have experienced flashbacks so frequently.
She must be greatly obsessed with Di Fuyi to be able to see the images, even under such a strict circumstance. It was a shame that Di Fuyi had immortalized and vanished completely. He was not in heaven. The Firmament Stone was initially relieved that Gu Xijiu had forgotten about Di Fuyi. Otherwise, the brutal reply that she got from heaven would have been a bad knock to her head.
The Firmament Stone was deeply absorbed in its thoughts when Gu Xijiu asked, “Little Cang, about that Huang Tu that you had mentioned before, was he the previous Lord? Answer me honestly.”
The Firmament Stone tried to find the right words to say. It was forbidden to lie to the Lord, so the Firmament Stone did not know how to answer the question right away. “Should… Should be,” it finally answered, after a while.
“Who was the friend that you talked about? On whose behalf did you try to ask for help?” Gu Xijiu tried to force the truth out of it.
The Firmament Stone was shocked. Sudden remorse occurred to it. It should not have asked about Huang Tu in heaven. Now, it did not know how to handle her intense interrogation.
Gu Xijiu looked at the Firmament Stone fixedly and asked, “Little Cang, you do remember about the previous Lord, don’t you?”
“I…” Desperately, the Firmament Stone wanted to avoid her question.
It desperately wished to be struck by lightning, so it would not remember anything like her as well. It was not allowed to deceive the Lord, but it was not allowed to mention anything about the heavenly law either. It was indeed in a real dilemma.
It was but a piece of jade. Why did she have to interrogate it so intensely?
“You do remember!” Gu Xijiu exclaimed in reassurance.
The Firmament Stone was obviously guilty. It shrunk into a ball and said nothing more.
Gu Xijiu put it on her palm and questioned it even more, “Speak. What has been going on between us? You’d better tell the truth.”
The Firmament Stone decided to respond. “Master, the matter is related to the heavenly law, so I am not allowed to tell you anything more. However, I do have an advice for you. You should look forward to the future, as there is still a long way to go. Why do you have to get yourself entangled with the fragments of your past? Let bygones be bygones!”
