A Sudden Strange Urge To Caress Him
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Could he be the person that she is looking for? It couldn’t be, right? The person she is searching for is the head of the heavenly law. She could believe that the Divine Lord, Shen Jiuli, might be that person, but as for that child… Even if the head of the heavenly law had a thousand incarnations, he would not take the form of a child, right?
But what if he would? She felt that there was something strange about that child. Just the thought of the incident kept her up all night, even after changing her sleeping position multiple times! Hence, Gu Xijiu decided just to put on her robe and get up.
As there were too many people around the other day, her senses may have gone astray. Therefore, she decided to go exploring at night to check whether she could sense anything. As Gu Xijiu was someone who would act on impulse, she immediately set out in pursuit.
Shen Nianmo lived in the Fantian Palace. Gu Xijiu knew that Fantian Palace was specially located on top of the ninth layer of heaven; it was the apex of the heavens. Except for its host and a select few servants, others are unable to enter its gates. It was a heavily guarded location.
The Divine Lord himself set the barriers; hence, Gu Xijiu thought that going into this place would take a lot of effort. Contrary to her expectations, she was able to enter it without any obstacles by just simple teleportation.
She was shocked when she successfully entered. Was it because the host was newly wedded and the guests had not left yet?No matter the reason, at least she got in. Because she had attended the wedding ceremony in the morning, she was still quite familiar with the layout.
As it was already near dawn, she was able to go undetected. In a moment, she quickly found Shen Nianmo’s home. Gu Xijiu’s external abilities were now at a high level, and her stealth technique was the best of its kind. She felt gratified at her success in infiltrating the palace without notice but worried about the security of the place at the same time.
If she could enter the place so easily, what if an enemy of the house just barged in and kidnapped their children? She suppressed that thought and put her ears to the window, closely listening. Hearing the soft sounds of breathing inside, she knew that the person inside was already deep in sleep. Being deep in sleep is good; it would make her search much easier. In a flash, she teleported into the room.
The room was elegantly decorated. On the side of a curtained bed by the wall, there was a mussel with its partially open shell, revealing the rays of a pearl within it.
Gu Xijiu’s eyes turned toward the mussel, and she inadvertently thought of her own mussel, who was training in the Lower Bound. As their power levels were not high enough, the mussel and Lu Wu were unable to follow her. Every time Gu Xijiu traveled to the Upper Bound, she would send them to the Fucang Palace for training.
The mussel in front of her had striking similarities to her own mussel. Even their color was the same. Her line of sight turned toward the curtains of the bed. The curtains were of a light blue shade and had an ink painting drawn on it, giving it a misty intrigue. The style of drawing was extremely delicate and exquisite. It was clear that Shen Nianmo drew the painting on the curtains. It looks like this child has quite a talent for art!
Gu Xijiu stood by the bed for a while. She then opened the curtains lightly and finally saw the child sleeping inside.
His lashes were long and beautiful while his cheeks were as beautiful as jade. His tiny lips that closed gently seemed to carry a smile even in its neutral position. He carried a soft fragrance that was extremely faint; still, it reminded Gu Xijiu of something.
She felt something gently tugging at her heartstrings. She looked at this child and had a sudden strange urge to caress him.
