Is There Any Food?

He fixed his eyes on the loving couple as he stood there. They were happily whispering to each other as they left, but the scene hurt him so much. He shifted his gaze to the pot nearby and realized there was enough fish soup to fill half a bowl. He pursed his lips and flicked his sleeve. Consequently, the pot immediately flew away and dropped into the ocean.
“Bang!” Di Fuyi awoke from his long sleep. He had a bad headache; he saw Bai Ze with a worried expression as he slowly opened his eyes. “Your Highness, you are awake!”
Di Fuyi was informed that he had been asleep for three days. It was all just a dream! He got up from the bed and looked into the mirror. He looked horrible- his hair was messy, his eyes were filled with loads of capillaries, his clothes were crumpled, and there were even a few wine stains on his collar. He had not been so miserable before. Bai Ze was certainly concerned for him. He had not seen his master in such a condition.
Di Fuyi lifted his head, and his gaze met Bai Ze’s gaze in the mirror. He smiled and said, “Bai Ze, get all the necessary items ready; I want to bathe!”
Bai Ze’s eyes sparkled. “Sure!”
His young master would usually use the cleaning spell to clean himself up. Hence, this act of physically cleaning himself was a sign that he was going to say goodbye to the past and start everything over again.
Indeed, Di Fuyi came out from the bathroom with a fresh look after an hour. He was wearing a light green robe, and he got half of his long black hair tied with a black hairpin. He was certainly dashing! He was smiling as he walked out, and all of the lady servants could not stop looking at him.
“Bai Ze, is there any food? I am hungry!”
“Sure! Sure! Please be patient; I will prepare something now!” Bai Ze quickly rushed into the kitchen. Quick enough, Bai Ze had prepared a tableful of food. Di Fuyi slowly enjoyed the food, just like how he used to.
Bai Ze finally felt relieved. Miss Gu’s appearance probably attracted his Highness; it was good that he finally understood and could let go of her.
Di Fuyi saw Bai Ze send four lady servants away as he finished his meal. The four lady servants were flower elves; they knew that this was a good place for them to cultivate and upgrade their spiritual power. Thus, they tried many ways and begged to stay as one day of cultivation in the Fantian Palace was equivalent to a month of hard work out there.
However, Bai Ze did not want to give his master any reason to recall anything about Gu Xijiu. After all, they were hired to serve Gu Xijiu when she was here; hence, all of them should go too since Gu Xijiu has left.
Bai Ze was negotiating with them when Di Fuyi came out. Casually, he interrupted the conversation. “Let them stay.”
The four flower elves were so happy and quickly kowtowed as an appreciation. Lazily, Di Fuyi added, “However, the Fantian Palace does not pay servants with nothing to contribute. Hence, the cleanliness of this palace will now be your responsibility; those who are lazy, just pack your stuff and leave!”
“Yes, Your Highness!” The four flower elves immediately left to get their work done.
Bai Ze looked at Di Fuyi with a complicated expression. “Your Highness…”
Di Fuyi waved his hand to dismiss him. “It does not look good to only keep eight of you in the palace. All of you are mythological animals who can compete with Mighty Immortals; how can you do chores every day? Go recruit a few servants and get them to do the chores.”
Bai Ze did not dare to disobey; hence, he left after taking the note. Certainly, there were many good candidates when the Fantian Palace announced their available vacancy.
