Di Fuyi continued to stand on the tree. The moon was hanging high up in the night sky behind him, forming a ring of light behind his figure and thus highlighting his silhouette. His robes swayed in the night breeze. However, his handsome face was not entirely observable in the absence of light, so they could barely see his expression. “Di Fuyi? Is this how you address me?”
After their intimate relationship, Gu Xijiu had been calling him ‘Fuyi’ to sound closer. Hence, it sounded strange to him. His indifferent tone of voice hung in the air.
Gu Xijiu noticed the indignation in his words. It was always good when he was friendly and approachable. However, when he was angry, his aura was overbearing. After their reunion, Di Fuyi acted like a big brother to her; he had been trying to show his good and easygoing side in hopes to charm her.
It was apparent to Gu Xijiu that he was angry, but what should he be angry about? Was he entitled to be angry? In fact, he refused to answer her calls even though he was fine. Was he trying to act cool? She had been worried for him all day long.
There was a brief moment of relief the moment she found him. However, that relief was immediately replaced by an overwhelming sense of frustration. Looking to respond to his question, she looked at him with a tight smile. “What do you prefer? Prince Nianmo?”
Surprised, he then fixed his eyes on Yun Yanli. With a bow, Yun Yanli was ready to greet him with the proper courtesy that he would do in heaven. “Prince Nianmo, it is nice to meet you.”
Di Fuyi closed his eyes and then lunged forward and grabbed Gu Xijiu’s hand without giving any attention to Yun Yanli. “Let us talk.”
His hand was cold, and the tightness of his grip was a little uncomfortable for her. Gu Xijiu pulled back her hand from his grasp and said, “What is there to talk about?”
Did he want to talk to her because he knew that she had found out the truth? Gu Xijiu could not contain her frustration anymore. “Prince Nianmo, good to see you here. Now that Mr. Yun is here, I actually have a few questions for you, and I hope you can answer me honestly.” Gu Xijiu felt that it would be beneficial to put everything forward so that she could find out the truth. Di Fuyi took a deep breath before answering, “Great. Please proceed.”
“Are you Shen Nianmo, the son of the celestial god and demon?”
“Are you at seven this year?”
“Yes, but I was already grown up when I was three.”
“We are not childhood friends. In fact, I can actually be considered as your parent, am I right?”
“Indeed, we are not childhood friends, but my parents are more than 10,000 years old. You are only 200 years old. Do you really think you are in the same generation as them?” Di Fuyi answered calmly. Gu Xijiu’s face slowly turned pale. “Well, your level of cultivation is comparable to that of a Great Deity. I guess you are as good as my parents.”
Everything he said seemed to be aligned to Yun Yanli’s sharing earlier. Gu Xijiu was disappointed, but slowly, she began to get angry. “We were never engaged, right?” Gu Xijiu gathered enough courage to finally ask the question.
Di Fuyi hesitated in his response but eventually answered, “Yes.”
Although she had misspoken in the Upper Bound, about how she was interested in making him her little husband, it all turned out to be a misunderstanding. In fact, Gu Xijiu had cleared the misunderstanding in public.
Gu Xijiu’s hand trembled in her sleeves. “Why did you call yourself my fiancé?” The misunderstanding had cost her the price of her virginity.
Di Fuyi gave her a tight smile. “Because I like you, so much that I am completely overwhelmed.”
