He Would Not Be So Heartless

Even though Gu Xijiu managed to hear everything clearly, it felt as though the voice in her head was very far away from her; like it had been somehow hidden from her. This time, she could even tell that it was a conversation between a man and a woman.
The woman sounded like herself, but who was the man? Who could it be? From the conversation, it seemed like the two were a couple. If that were the case, could Celestial Master Zuo be Di Fuyi?
Di Fuyi told her that they had known each other since young and were engaged for a long time. Also, her Kung Fu used to be much more advanced than his during her time in the Upper Bound.
However, what she inferred from the conversation was that the relationship between the couple seemed to have bloomed only after a series of exchanges. Celestial Master Zuo also seemed to be much stronger than Gu Xijiu. In fact, he was the one who taught her; he seemed to be both her master and her partner.
The two situations did not match up. Did Di Fuyi lie to her? Or was she having an affair with Celestial Master Zuo? Perhaps it was something that Di Fuyi was unaware about? Strangely, the Celestial Master Zuo character in her head had clearly said that they were engaged. How many times exactly had she been engaged?
Helplessly, she placed her face in both her palms; she was unable to believe that she was that shameless and licentious woman who had multiple affairs at the same time. Perhaps, she had broken off the engagement with Di Fuyi before knowing Celestial Master Zuo. However, she was not sure about what had happened between them that made her change her mind and return to Di Fuyi instead.
Many different speculations emerged, and she could barely get her head around the possibilities anymore. After giving it more thought, the one that she believed to be the most reasonable was that before she lost her memory, she was actually in love with Celestial Master Zuo. Di Fuyi liked her, so he took the chance to take advantage of her loss of memory and tricked her into a relationship.
The last speculation made her heart ache. She had only talked about Celestial Master Zuo once last night, and Di Fuyi was immediately quiet. Could it be true? Even without her memory, her logical reasoning remained excellent. At this very instant, the many possibilities seemed to connect all at once. The truth was about to resurface.
Nonetheless, Gu Xijiu did not want to believe in the truth. Di Fuyi would not do something so cruel. He would not be so heartless. She must have overthought the entire situation. The clan leader once told her that she had the habit of overthinking, perhaps she was a bit too paranoid. It was not a good habit to keep, and she needed to change.
“He has been so good to me, and I feel the same about him. Every moment spent with him has been very heartwarming, like a support that I can finally trust upon. No one has ever made me feel this way. I have to trust him. I cannot picture him in such a negative way.” She tried to calm her anxious heart down.
“Growl!” An animal was screaming from a distance, loud enough to shake the tree that she was standing on. She took a deep breath to clear her tangled mind. She could not afford to linger on the useless thoughts at this very moment. The search for Di Fuyi was of the utmost importance.
Gu Xijiu tried to utilize her spiritual power to locate Di Fuyi. Her loss of memory had prevented her from recalling the techniques she possessed, but she believed that she was able to remember if she stayed focused. If she tried hard, she might be able to remember everything.
She closed her eyes to try and recall, but another growl from afar interrupted her. A sudden idea occurred to her. The growl came from the Chinese Alligator.Could he be there?
