Yun Yanli did not dare stay there for long. After having a chat that lasted about two hours with his sister, he bid his goodbye.
While the siblings were speaking, Gu Xijiu waited outside. She did not wish to pry.
Since Princess Yun lived in a lush, secure forest above the eighth heaven, Yun Yanli would not be able to sneak himself to meet his sister with his current external abilities.
When Yun Yanli came out, his eyes were red. It was obvious that he had cried in there. Gu Xijiu did not say anything and simply brought him away. Gu Xijiu led him away and arrived at the sixth level where the demons and immortals coexisted. She then asked him about his plans.
Yun Yanli inhaled a breath of air, and said wryly, “It has ended up this way, what else could I plan for? I hope to find my father first since he is only missing.”
Gu Xijiu shook her head in silence. Emperor Yun has been missing for such a long time; it would mean more bad news rather than good news. There was little possibility that he could still be alive. Looking for him would end up to no avail as well.
She paused for a moment, and said, “Your Highness, the change in empires happen by fate, as does among the immortals and the people of the land. An empire run entirely by a family would not last long. Your father’s deeds when he ruled was not liked by the people either, and instead caused a wave of despair. Now that Ye Tianli rules the world, as you can see, the people are living a safe and prosperous life. Your Highness, you will need to be more open-minded, and not be overly determined, or else you would inflict trouble upon yourself.”
Yun Yanli’s dark eyes fell on her. “Xijiu, I know that you say so for my own good, only that…” Only that he was not satisfied! The empire built by the Yun family had been substituted. He was once a member of the royal family, and now he had to instead scurry about hiding himself, not even able to reveal his true identity. He had to disguise himself when he went outdoors.
Gu Xijiu could understand him. However, if he did not learn to let go, he would only suffer.She could only help him to that point, so she tapped on Yun Yanli’s shoulder and said, “Your Highness, you will need to learn to let go, especially when the circumstances have been finalized; otherwise, you will only inflict problems onto yourself, and not solve anything. With your abilities, even if you are no longer the king, you will be able to fare well in many aspects of your life. Alright, I will stop right here. You can sleep on it. I am leaving.”
It was time for her to go and look for Shen Nianmo. She could also check on whether the poison in her juniors’ body had been cured.
Yun Yanli was somewhat reluctant. However, he did not know what plans Gu Xijiu had. So, he smiled and responded, “Xijiu, I am heavily indebted to you. No matter how I turn out to be eventually, I would have regained my freedom, and hence, I would consider what you said. Is there any chance of us meeting again?”
“If fate brings us together… we will see each other again one day.” Gu Xijiu did not turn back.
Yun Yanli was sitting in the room while staring at where Gu Xijiu before she disappeared. Moments later, he said, “Xijiu, I believe, that we will meet each other again someday, and that day will arrive soon…”
Gu Xijiu stood at the top floor of the building. She took out a directed audio talisman and closed her eyes for some time. She then started contacting Shen Nianmo, and, as usual, he did not show any sign of picking up.
When she was going through danger in the Tree Palace with Shen Nianmo, she gave him a directed audio talisman, saying that they could keep in touch with each other through the device.
