Where Is She? (3)

“Perhaps, she has already escaped to a safer place. As you know, the lava is continuously flowing. Perhaps, she has been brought to another place by the stream. We have to keep looking,” Bai Ze tried to sound hopeful.
“That is right. God always blesses the good. I am sure that she will remain unharmed. I will send more men in the search as well,” the Emperor Immortal agreed. He quietly observed Jing Ling Er, who had been following Di Fuyi everywhere. Based on his observation, it was clear that the prince seemed to be really in love with Miss Gu.
Earlier, he did well to disguise his feelings for her. However, in the current emergency, he finally revealed himself for what he was. His feelings were completely unmasked. As for Miss Gu, she did not seem to treat him completely as a child. She must have fallen for him, even though she did not care to admit it, rationally.
With these revelations, the Emperor Immortal would love to know how things would turn out for both of them. But where did Miss Gu go? He did not believe that she was gone for good. No one believed so. They thought that she would reappear in no time, but it did not happen.
Three days went by. Another five days passed. Soon, two weeks flew by. Then, a month. There was no news. It was as if she had disappeared entirely from the world.
Di Fuyi tried to look for everywhere. In a frenzied hurry, he did not sleep or even rest. As time ticked by, he slowly grew less hopeful about her survival. He had looked into many places and even visited Long Siye.
The four Great Guardians had brutally tortured long Siye while he was detained. His injuries were quite severe, making it difficult for him even to leave his bed. Upon hearing about Gu Xijiu’s disappearance, he bore the pain and joined the search as well.
He speculated, “Has Xijiu gone back to the Lower Bound? After all, her six-month stay in the Upper Bound is coming to its expiration.”
The mussel dismissed his idea, “Impossible! Master will never abandon Lu Wu and I. Also, my master has to ride the Fiery Bird in order to return to the Lower Bound, via the Sky Bridging Tree. It is not possible that the vortex would send her back.”
Long Siye did not comment any further.
Bai Ze recalled about the pillar at the peak of the ninth heaven, which officially recorded all the names of the people that had achieved a Middle Immortal status and above. Their names would be automatically displayed on the pillar. If he or she died, the name would be wiped off automatically as well.
Before it could finish explaining itself, Di Fuyi was already gone. As soon as it got to the pillar, Bai Ze regretted its decision immediately. There were tens of thousands of names on the pillar. What frustrated it more was the randomness of the display. The names would move and switch places from time to time. Searching for one name in the sea of names was like looking for a needle in a haystack. Furthermore, Bai Ze was not even sure if her name was there, to begin with.
Di Fuyi circled the pillar while carefully studying every name that flashed before his eyes. He only cared about her name.
Bai Ze persuaded him, “My prince, failure to find her name does not necessarily mean that she is dead. After all, she is not originally a member of the Saha World. It is possible that her name was never here.”
After three days of painstaking search, he finally found her name in a very hidden corner. The search finally ended, right before dusk.
