He Wrote Down Her Name, Letter By Letter
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
The angrier Stone was, the more reluctant he became to socialize with the villagers. He would stay home most of the time. Most people would treat him as if he was transparent. In the village where most people were known for being strong and masculine, his presence was quite negligible.
The clan leader was anxious that his son would never become someone useful. However, he also believed that the sorcerer would not make a false depiction about the future of his son. Thus, he would often force his son to practice Kung Fu while at home. Occasionally, he would try to push his son to achieve his potential, even if it meant being harsh.
In a sudden righteous ardor, his son decided to leave a letter to the clan leader, saying that he would prove himself by hunting a ferocious beast personally. Then, he sneaked out alone, not to success, but his death.
Although Stone was not a very significant member of the clan, the sorcerer once predicted that he would encounter an odd adventure when he was 18 and proceed to become a great leader who would change everything about the place. Therefore, the clan members were still a little hopeful.
Heartbroken, the clan leader had never thought that his son’s life would end so tragically, but there was actually a more significant problem about his death. Stone was the sole reason that they struggled to live on under the harsh living conditions, for they were all waiting for that day he became stronger.
Once the clan found out that Stone was dead, they would definitely be greatly affected by the loss of their only hope. Hence, the clan leader was worried about the emotions of the members. A plan occurred to him. The clan leader asked if Gu Xijiu could pretend to be Stone for a while, as their figures were more or less the same.
Gu Xijiu had completely lost her memory. Also, she was not familiar with the world that she was just sent to. Having nowhere to go, she agreed to the clan leader’s request. Luckily, the people there would paint their faces most of the time. Stone had a fine face, which was unlike the majority of the people. Due to his extremely low profile, his face was barely recognizable by most people.
Although her memory was lost, she did not lose her ability to disguise herself; she looked almost similar to Stone. For the past six months, no one knew that she was actually in disguise. Certainly, the loss of memory did not take away her character. She would not tolerate the clan members’ mistreatment like how Stone used to. Briskly, she gave her bullies a lesson by fighting them off. Later on, she also joined the hunters to pursue the beasts together.
There was barely any spiritual power left, but luckily, a third of her internal power remained. In addition to her mysterious teleportation skill, she became an eminent member of the clan. Within six months, she managed to change the people’s attitude about Stone. Most of them started to regard her as their leader. Without any memory, she started to adapt and become a whole new person.
Di Fuyi’s presence had reminded her that she did not belong there. She did not even know where she truly belonged. She observed how he would hold her hand; it was very natural.
“You said that my name is Xijiu, didn’t you? Do I really like to drink?” She asked in a low voice. For people who had lost their memory, they were typically insecure. All this while, she had never stopped trying to recall her past, but there was nothing she could remember.
“Your name is Gu Xijiu.” Di Fuyi took her hand and wrote down her name, letter by letter, on her palm.
His long, slender fingers looked well refined, with soft and supple skin. She could barely resist his beautiful hand. With every stroke, she could feel her heart throbbing to his every movement.
At this moment, he was leaning close to her. His faint and yet irresistible scent hung in the air. Wildly, her heart thumped. Baffled, his scent gave her a mixed feeling of excitement and grief. Yet, she desperately wanted to pull herself into his embrace.
