“Stone, who is this?” The clan leader consulted Gu Xijiu about the newcomer.
Before Gu Xijiu could answer, Di Fuyi explained himself. “I am her fiancé. You must be the clan leader, am I right? We need to talk.”
The clan leader’s eyes flashed with uncertainties, and his jaw dropped. The other’s did not know about Gu Xijiu’s real identity, but he was well aware of it. Her fiancé was here looking for her now. The clan leader sighed and agreed. “All right, follow me.”
The clan leader’s house was a two-story building made entirely out of stone, like a little castle.
To play the role of Stone, Gu Xijiu had to share the house with the clan leader. She was staying on the first floor. The ground floor was where the clan leader’s room, and the living room were located. The clan leader brought them to the living room.
Gu Xijiu was already familiar to the surrounding. Di Fuyi, on the other hand, was unimpressed. The house was so simple and crude. The only pieces of furniture in the living room were the stone table and chairs, without any cushion to keep warm.
Did Gu Xijiu really spend the past six months in such a shabby place? It was no wonderher body was getting weaker; thus, explaining the instability of her name on the celestial pillar. Although the clan leader felt a sense of enmity towards Di Fuyi, he still welcomed him as a guest into his house. He pointed at the chair and asked him to sit.
Di Fuyi did not do as told. Instead, he took out two brocade cushions and offered one to Gu Xijiu. As for the clan leader, he should continue enjoying the solid-hard chair that his tough body was made to endure.
The clan leader noticed the luxurious cushion. Then, he fixed his eyes on Di Fuyi and asked him frankly, “Where did you come from? Do you have any proof that you are Stone’s fiancé?”
Di Fuyi showed off the bracelet on his wrist and answered smilingly, “She likes to give away bracelets. This is a token of love that she has given to me.”
Gu Xijiu remained quiet as she observed the bracelet. Indeed, it gave her a sense of familiarity. The bracelet looked like a high-end item with an extraordinary origin. Was it really a gift from her? Was she once a rich woman?
When she arrived in the Shura World, she had nothing else but a dress to cover up her naked body. Hence, she had certainly not expected that she would be so generous in the choice of gift.
The clan leader looked at the bracelet fixedly. There was a flow of spiritual power within the body of the bracelet. Spiritual power was the element that they most lacked in this world.
He reached out his hand and requested, “May I have a look of your bracelet?”
Di Fuyi pulled his sleeve down to hide it away. Briskly, he rejected. “You may not.”
The clan leader did not give up. “If you do not show me, how are you going to prove that it is a gift from her?”
“You will not be able to tell even if I show you.”
The clan leader was speechless.
“Show me,” Gu Xijiu offered.
Di Fuyi agreed swiftly. “Sure.” He put his wrist on her palm and said, “Have a look.”
Gu Xijiu was not quite comfortable with the idea. Frowningly, she continued, “Take it off and show me instead.”
Di Fuyi heaved a sigh of helplessness. “Have you forgotten? I cannot take it off once it has been worn.”
Was that a logical explanation?
Gu Xijiu did not believe him, surely. She tried to take the bracelet off his hand but failed miserably.
“How is that even possible? How did I put it on for you?” Gu Xijiu felt something strange about the bracelet.
Di Fuyi hesitated. “Have you really forgotten it all?” He gave her a look of disbelief.
