The Head Of The Heavenly Law

As Gu Xijiu did not want to wake him up from his dream, she decided to extend her hand gently and touch his soft face with the tip of her finger. However, before her finger made contact, his lashes suddenly quivered, and his eyes quickly opened.
In her astonishment, Gu Xijiu forgot to conceal herself, and their eyes met. She was dumbfounded, while Shen Nianmo could not believe what he saw! His previously blurry eyes enlarged in an instant!
Before Gu Xijiu could react, her eyes were suddenly shrouded in blackness— the blanket was about to envelop her! A hint of confusion hit her. She seemed to recall using this technique herself before and did not expect this child to use it as well.
She raised her hand, causing the blanket to fall to the ground without even grazing the sleeves of her robe.
“Ha!” A strong force pressed against her. The magnitude of the force was surprisingly large. Gu Xijiu took a few steps back and waved her sleeve, dissipating the force into nothing. She raised her head only to find the child having crashed and escaped from the window.
Gu Xijiu was usually a very stealthy person; hence, she did not see any of this coming. Moreover, was she that frightening? Why did the child react as though he had just seen a ghost? She touched her face inadvertently and felt the coldness of a mask.
She quite liked to put on masks recently and would wear it every time she was out. She possessed a huge selection of masks that came in a variety of styles. When Gu Xijiu decided to come here, she simply chose her maskwithout taking a close look. In fact, she scared herself when she saw the mask that she had chosen.
The mask portrayed a hauntingly white visage with a bloody red mouth that had half a tongue protruding from it; the mask looked eerily similar to the face of a hanged man! She coughed lightly. To think that a child saw a face like that in the middle of the night; he was already brave for not being scared out of his mind!
Instead of running away immediately, he even managed to launch an attack.He had real talent! But where did he go to now? He would not go to his parents, right? Both of them were just married and were probably in the process of consummating their marriage tonight. Surely they would not like to be interrupted. Gu Xijiu would certainly not wish to do so either.
Gu Xijiu quickly teleported out the door and saw two figures- one big and one small, coming forward from afar. Her heart jumped. She shifted herself up to a densely leaved tree nearby and hid. The two figures were none other than the Divine Lord Shen Jiuli and Shen Nianmo.
Shen Nianmo still looked unnerved. “Father, I really saw a fiend… Is he your mortal enemy? Could it be that Luo Jiuyi?”
Shen Jiuli shook his head. “Don’t worry, Luo Jiuyi already died a long time ago and won’t come back to life.” He took a look at his son and continued, “Why? Are you afraid?”
Shen Nianmo raised his chin at him. “No way! I’m just checking with you!”
Shen Jiuli could not help but laugh at his response. “Alright. Thank you, then.”
The two walked into Shen Nianmo’s bedroom while talking.
Shen Jiuli walked out after a while. When he went past the tree Gu Xijiu was hiding in, he gently looked up and said, “Train him well.” He then left with grace.
Gu Xijiu sat on the branch. Turns out that Shen Jiuli had noticed her! However, did he not care too much about her terrifying his son? Seems that he only made a passing remark on that issue.Gu Xijiu rubbed her brows. She did not intend to scare him; it was a mistake.
But what did Shen Juili mean by ‘train him well’? Did the Divine Lord want her to teach his son?
