Even You Cannot Take The Bracelet Off

Gu Xijiu did not know how to respond.
“Can’t you take the bracelet off yourself?” Hesitantly, Gu Xijiu asked.
“Have you no knowledge about your previous possession?” Shen Nianmo questioned.
Gu Xijiu coughed. “This… This was not always mine. I was acting under orders to find its true master.”
“Were you following me under orders? Whose orders?”
“I have nothing to tell.”
She could not simply tell him about the heavenly laws; otherwise, the act would be considered as a breach.
Shen Nianmo looked at her with apathy. “How did you know I was its true master?”
Gu Xijiu frowned, struggling to find an explanation. Did her intuition count as a legit answer? She only found him based on her intuition. However, the explanation sounded rather abstract. He would not easily believe it. “The method is of no importance. The important thing is that you are truly its master. Regarding the box… Only its true master can open the box. Even I could not open the box myself, so I certainly did not know what was in there.”
Shen Nianmo fixed his eyes on her expression; he had a profound look in his eyes. He hugged his arms and continued, “Are you saying that even you cannot take the bracelet off?”
Gu Xijiu hesitated before offering, “Do you want me to try?”
“Great!” Shen Nianmo reached his hand out for her to try.
Gu Xijiu finally had a clearer view of the bracelet. Its texture seemed to be richer than before. Indistinctly, its appearance was translucent with seven-colored rays, looming up through its misty and rosy cloud patterns. It was far more beautiful than any other bracelets that Gu Xijiu had ever seen. The bracelet hung perfectly on his wrist. It suited him just right, like it was meant to be his. “The bracelet looks beautiful. Why do you want to take it off?”
“It is here against my will. I will not take it, no matter how beautiful it looks.” Shen Nianmo obviously disapproved of the bracelet. He liked the joy of freedom but was unfortunately hooked with the bracelet. It shimmered gloriously, which was something that he did not prefer. Moreover, the bracelet was from the person who had been giving him nightmares, which made him dislike the bracelet even more.
Throughout the years, he had tried many ways to get the bracelet off but failed. Now that he had finally met the person who was responsible for the bracelet, he would not let the opportunity slip.
When he was forced to wear the bracelet, he had even thought that it was the ugly and disturbing woman’s trick to manipulate him. When he was older, he changed his mind and thought that the woman might fancy him.
He had expected her to show up once in a while to remind him of her presence. To his surprise, the woman disappeared entirely for many years. He later found out that the woman had a rather low profile in the continent. Her appearance was merely a flash no matter where she went. Also, she was not very sociable.
He asked many people about her, but not many had the answers. Regarding the case of the missing children, he had once thought that she was the chief conspirator behind the case. He interrupted the investigation to winkle her out.
Surprisingly, she showed up in another way. He did not know what to feel the moment she revealed her true self, so he stood by staring blankly, lost in thoughts.
Just when he was all caught up in his thoughts, the snake seized the window and bit her. When he saw that she was poisoned, he quickly supported her with hand. His only thought at the moment was to keep her alive.
He had finally found her after so long, so he could not simply watch her die. He also discovered that she was the big sister who had once sent him home many years ago. The moment he took off her mask was when he found out about the shocking truth. He was astonished.
