She Knew Nothing About Prince Nianmo

The man wanted to hold Gu Xijiu’s hand, but she swiftly took a few steps back. She could almost confirm that he was a man from heaven, but she did not know his true identity or intention. She wished he would have identified himself better.
“Xijiu, don’t you recognize me?” The man immediately realized that something was not quite right about Gu Xijiu.
On the other hand, Gu Xijiu wanted to pretend that she knew him, but there was no way she could hide it anymore. She coughed to hide her awkwardness. “When I first saw you, I was immediately overwhelmed by a sense of familiarity. It is a shame that I no longer remember who you are,” she confessed. Loss of memory was such a struggle.
The man looked at her in disbelief and sighed. “How could you forget me, Xijiu? Have you lost your memory?”
Gu Xijiu wanted to leave immediately. All she wanted from him was his identification. Instead, he said a lot of unnecessary things to make her feel bad.
“Xijiu, I am Yun Yanli, your best friend from heaven. You were the one who taught me how to utilize the potential of this sword fully.”
Gu Xijiu did not know what to say. However, she did feel that this name was familiar to her. Apparently, he was neither her senior nor junior apprentice. She rubbed her temples in confusion. “I see. I hurt my head when I first came here. Part of my memory is lost.”
“Are you hurt? Is it serious?” Yun Yanli was eager to approach her to read her pulse.
Gu Xijiu avoided him. “It is fine. I have only lost some of my memory. Nothing serious.”
Yun Yanli felt sorry for her and sighed. “Xijiu, you have lost a huge part of your spiritual power. When you were in heaven, you were close to achieving the level of a Great Deity. Look at you now.”
Gu Xijiu knew that her spiritual power had been greatly reduced, but she did not know that it was reduced to such a great extent. Di Fuyi told her a few things about heaven before, so she knew that there were only a few Mighty Immortals and hardly any Great Deities. She did not know that she used to be so powerful.
Also, she knew that all the Mighty Immortals were generally a few thousand years old. She was only about 200-300 years old, so logically, she should have merely been a Golden Immortal like Di Fuyi. However, the truth turned out to be vastly different than she thought.
Her Kung Fu used to be so much more powerful that Di Fuyi’s, so she should be very much older. In that case, she could hardly be a friend from his childhood. Did Di Fuyi really lie to her? Gu Xijiu’s heart skipped a beat at the painful realization. However, she still had one thing on her mind. “You are Yun Yanli, right? Do you know how to use your Will Power?”
“I am sorry, I have never heard of it,” he shook his head to dismiss her expectation. Gu Xijiu heaved a helpless sigh. The technique seemed to be one of Celestial Master Zuo’s greatest skills. Perhaps, she was the only one that he had ever taught it to. Sadly, she could not remember any of it, at the moment.
Yun Yanli suddenly recalled something. “By the way, Xijiu, is Prince Nianmo is here as well? Are you looking for him?” Gu Xijiu was absolutely astonished, for she knew nothing about Prince Nianmo.
Yun Yanli was smart enough to notice her confusion just from her expression. “Xijiu, I noticed that you had taken me for someone else earlier, someone named Di Fuyi. You are looking for him, aren’t you?”
Gu Xijiu nodded and replied, “Yes.” Another realization suddenly occurred to her. “Is Di Fuyi also known as Prince Nianmo?”
Yun Yanli heaved another sigh. “Di Fuyi is the name Prince Nianmo uses when he travels the world. Xijiu, have you forgotten about that as well?”
Gu Xijiu was obviously lost. Di Fuyi had never told her about his background identity. It appears that she had been too distracted to the point where it never came as a concern to her that she should find out more about his background. She did not even ask him about her own background, too. To be fair, they were often swamped.
