Perhaps, You Are Not Even As Good As Me

It was his fault, so he was willing to suffer the consequences. “Xijiu, I know that I have made a mistake. I will make it up to you in the future.”
“How are you going to make it up to me? Di Fuyi, do you really think that I will marry you?”
Puzzled, he stared at her silently. “Xijiu, don’t say something you will regret. We have already…”
Gu Xijiu laughed out loud before giving him a serious reply, “Had intimacy? Do you really think that I will resign to fate and marry you after discovering the dirty tricks that you have played on me? Is this why you initiated the whole plan, to act first and apologize later? Let me tell you, Di Fuyi, that it is impossible. I always have and always will love Huang Tu, Celestial Master Zuo. As long as I live, I will always be his woman. I will never marry you!”
Di Fuyi’s face could not hide his emotions.
“Di Fuyi, you should leave. From this day onwards, we shall never cross paths ever again. We shall keep ourselves away from one another. Please do not show up in front of me again. I am disgusted by the sight of you.”
Gu Xijiu trembled in extreme indignation. The truth was too much for her to take. Di Fuyi was such a great liar. How could he trick her into believing a false version of the truth? Who did he think she was? Swiftly, she turned around and disappeared.
Meanwhile, the two had completely disregarded Yun Yanli’s presence all this while. “Xijiu!” Yun Yanli called out loud. She must be outraged, so much so that she had completely forgotten about him.
He turned around and looked at Di Fuyi. “Prince Nianmo, I did not know that you and Gu Xijiu had gone through so many stages in your relationship.”
Di Fuyi gave him a stern look in return but did not say anything.
Yun Yanli sighed and raised his hand in defense. “Prince Nianmo, I did not know that you chose to hide so many things from her. What you have done is, indeed, inappropriate.”
“You have no right to interfere,” Di Fuyi answered in an annoyed tone.
Yun Yanli shook his head in disapproval before giving him a stern response, “Prince Nianmo, I have no intention to interfere with things that are irrelevant to me. However, Xijiu has been a friend of mine for many years. Our friendship is not something that you can understand, for you are still young. I really do not wish to see her being tricked in such a bad way.”
“Friend? Are you really, her friend?” Di Fuyi sounded a little hostile.
Yun Yanli answered calmly, “Yes.” With a tight smile, he added, “She is the only friend that I will ever have in my life. I am here in the Shura World only because of her. This barren land is not suitable for her.”
He then took another two steps towards Di Fuyi and said, “Prince Nianmo, you chose to have her trapped in this place all because of your personal intention. It is disgraceful. You certainly have not expected that she and I would meet here, right? You should know that no secret can be kept hidden forever.”
Di Fuyi stood still. His presence alone was intimidating. “Yun Yanli, you have become more courageous since you got here. How dare you talk to me like that!?” When the two met in the Upper Bound, Yun Yanli used to be very courteous and polite.
Amused by his comment, Yun Yanli gave him a laugh. He then stared at Di Fuyi fixedly and answered with a sarcastic smile, “Prince Nianmo, you are the son of the celestial god and demon in the Upper Bound. People respect you and keep a distance from you to avoid any trouble from your parents; but here, what is the difference between you and me?”
He took another step forward and teased, “Perhaps, you are not even as good as me.”
