Gu Xijiu was puzzled. Before long, she asked, “Instructor Long, why are you here?”
Long Siye saw that she was awake, and heaved a sigh of relief. “I have been looking for you for the entire day. I never thought that you would be sleeping away in this hotel for three days! I could not even wake you up. What happened? Did you have a nightmare?”
Gu Xijiu sat up and massaged the inner corner of her eyebrows. She knew that she had a dream. Speaking of which, what did she dream of? She massaged her veins while pondering, and her memory failed her. She could only vaguely recall herself meeting the master of the heavenly law.But how did she end up sleeping for so many days? Had she been too overwhelmed by her quest of searching for the master of heavenly law?
Long Siye did not actually have any reason to go looking for Gu Xijiu. It just so happened that he saw her when he was managing the order on the wedding. Gu Xijiu was at the end of the crowd, worrying him. Hence he tried contacting her after his task but to no avail.
It was only then that he started searching for her, and it took some time before he finally bumped into her at the hotel. At first, he did not want to disturb her seeing that she was sleeping soundly. However, as she did not show signs of waking up despite the amount of time that passed, he was rather anxious. He started calling out for her, but she did not wake up.
Gu Xijiu never thought that she would have slept for three days. She gently massaged the inner corner of her eyebrows again as she pondered. “It could be that I haven’t had a good rest for the past couple of days.”
Long Siye did a quick examination of her health condition, and she seemed to be fine. That helped to ease his earlier worries.
It was late in the evening, so Long Siye asked her out to a restaurant, and they chatted over dinner. Through Long Siye, Gu Xijiu knew that Saha World had entirely changed over the past few days. Also, the Emperor Immortal who had disappeared was said to have immortalized. There was no trace of him. Besides that, the son of the Emperor Immortal had died in the hands of the Great Devil, Ning Xuemo.
Furthermore, Prince Yun Yanli was missing. The Celestial Kingdom could not be without a leader for a day. As a result, the top general, Ye Tianli, ascended to the throne of the Emperor Immortal under orders from the Great Devil and the Immortal Lord.
Once Ye Tianli became Emperor Immortal, he changed the laws in the Celestial Kingdom. The law he first abolished was the one that prevented the ascendant group from getting positions beyond the sixth level. Instead, he wanted to permit social mobility by means of capability. In other words, as long as one had the capability, he or she could reign at a high position.
It was also due to the change made that Long Siye was promoted by a level. From a guard, he became the commander of the guards. That position was already considered one in the fifth level. Gu Xijiu lost track of her thoughts while looking at Long Siye. The Long Siye right now had completely regarded the Saha World as his home. Step by step, he had made a career for himself; from being a servant when he first came to being a fifth-level officer. However, he had been living a very humble life.
He had forgotten everything that happened in the Tianwen clan and had come here starting a brand new life of his own. Was such ascendance equivalent to reincarnating and bearing a new life? What had passed had passed. He was no longer the Overlord of the Tianwen clan, but a commander of guards in the Saha World. His aim was to be an actual general of the immortals.
Gu Xijiu had visited many of the powerful people who had ascended. They had all become Mighty Immortals, but without memories of the Lower Bound. Their lives had been carefree up here. On the other hand, she often found herself being on a mission when she visited the Upper Bound, yet perhaps that is because she regarded the Lower Bound as her home.
But did she? Because, when she was in the Lower Bound, the sense of loneliness did not diminish at all. In fact, regardless of whether she was in the Upper or Lower Bound, she did not feel like she belonged.
She lost track of her thoughts again until Long Siye gave her a toast.
