I Am No Longer A Child

“I remember the time when you were in your feminine form, with Long Siye by your side. You sent me home before, as my big sister.” Shen Nianmo answered, half-jokingly.
Gu Xijiu paused for a while to think about it. It seemed the young man did recall.
“Why did you make your appearance in so many different forms? What do you want from me? Aren’t you tired, having to change from one identity to another?” Shen Nianmo took another quiet but intimidating step towards her.
Gu Xijiu smacked her head. “Nianmo.”
“Call me Fuyi.”
Gu Xijiu raised her arms as if surrendering. “All right, Fuyi, I believe we may have a misunderstanding here. I appeared a few times before because I suspected that you were the target of my mission, so I had to observe you before I made any conclusion. I know that I have scared you before, but have I actually harmed you? It was a mere coincidence when I sent you home at that time. I did not intend to show up in front of you that night.
Moreover, I only took the form of a child this time in order to be caught. I needed to make the investigation myself. I did not know, at all, that I was going to see you here. What surprised me more was that you grew so much in just five years!”
It came as a shock when she found out that he was Shen Nianmo. She suspected that he must have taken some kind of growth hormone to help him grow.
Shen Nianmo explained slowly, “I am the son of a celestial being and a devil. Surely, I am different from ordinary people. I am no longer a child.”
Gu Xijiu was certainly impressed. “Your genetics are undoubtedly amazing.”
“My father became a grown up when he was only a year old. There really is nothing strange.”
It was indeed a privilege to be born as the next of kin of the union of a celestial and devil.
Unlike Gu Xijiu, who had to go through many hardships in order to get to where she was now. However, his progressive growth was not entirely because of his genetics. He was also the reincarnation of the master of heavenly law.
Gu Xijiu recalled the appearance of the master of heavenly law. Although she did not see his face very clearly, she could remember how he made her feel. His elegant grace and tremendous influence closely resembled Shen Nianmo’s.
Certainly, Shen Nianmo’s influence was not as strong as the master of heavenly law that she had met before. He was, after all, a child. Someday, she believed that she would become a really powerful man.
He took six years to achieve the level of a Golden Immortal. With that progress, he would become a Mighty Immortal within a decade. Her mission was to help him achieve the level of a Mighty Immortal in exchange for Huang Tu’s revival. She was excited at the thought of that, so she gave Shen Nianmo an enthusiastic look. “Nianmo, oh no, Fuyi, would you like to increase your power tremendously?”
Perplexed, Shen Nianmo responded with a look of confusion. “Hmm, what about that?”
On her palm, Gu Xijiu showed him a purple, lustrous pill. “I have collected an effective pill that will help you to increase your strength quickly. I can give this to you as a gift. You can try it and see your progress.”
Shen Nianmo picked it up and observed it carefully. “Did you make this?” He could not help but ask.
“I did not expect that. This is a level eight pill. There are not many alchemists who are as skilled as you even in this Celestial-Demon Continent.”
Gu Xijiu was flattered. “Of course. I am an expert in alchemy. There is rarely anyone who can achieve the same excellence as I do.”
Shen Nianmo looked at the pill with a peculiar expression. The pill shone with brilliant luster, but he could not figure out the ingredients of the pill at all, even though he was an expert in medicine. He put the pill away in his storage bag, so he could study it properly when he got home.
