Have You Broken Up With Mr Di?
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
When the villagers first met Di Fuyi, they wanted to shake hands with him to greet him, but he refused to, pretending like he never saw the approaching hands. He was very arrogant toward them. When someone touched him, he would flick his robes to clear away the dust. It was a sign of him thinking that these people were dirty.
Also, he had the habit of insulting people and being very sarcastic to them. Most of the time, he would go to the extreme and shut them up once and for all. Thus, they no longer dared to approach him, avoiding every chance of a conversation. He also often kept himself away from the villagers.
He once said that if it were not for Gu Xijiu, he would not even care about the lives of these people at all. Yun Yanli, on the other hand, had also descended from the Upper Bound and possessed a noble background, but he was not arrogant at all. He was amiable, exactly like the celestial beings that were often thought to be compassionate. Obviously, he was very different from Di Fuyi.
She was caught in her own contemplation when Chun Cao suddenly pulled her aside and spoke to her in private. “Xijiu, this man is very handsome. I think he likes you.”
“That is not true!” Gu Xijiu quickly corrected her. “He is only a friend to me; so am I to him. There is nothing more between us.”
Chun Cao was a little disappointed by the response. The women from the clan were not very concerned about their chastity. They had their absolute freedom to be with anyone they liked. In fact, Chun Cao had been with three different men in the clan. To be adored by many men was a privilege and an honor. Therefore, Chun Cao thought that Brother Stone, being someone who was so strong and capable, deserved to have several men by her side, even if it was at the same time.
“Do you really only like Di Fuyi? Do you want to commit your life to him?” Chun Cao happened to say something that she should not have.
Gu Xijiu’s facial expression seemed to have changed as the conversation dropped into a dead silence. “Don’t mention him. We have already broken up.”
Chun Cao was obviously surprised. “What? Why?”
Gu Xijiu did not want to talk much about it. “No specific reason. We are just not compatible with each other.”
Puzzled, Chun Cao then continued, “Are you sure? Both of you look great together. We are envious of your relationship. Why did you say that you are incompatible all of a sudden?”
Chun Cao was a little loud, so she managed to attract the attention of the people around her.
“Brother Stone, have you broken up with Mr. Di?”
“Brother Stone, why would you do so?”
“Brother Stone, I thought both of you were doing great! Last night, you were still together. Why did you break up so suddenly?”
The discussion continued.
Their judgments and questions were too much for Gu Xijiu to handle. Obviously annoyed, she could no longer suppress her irritation and lashed out at them. “Are you really so free? Don’t you have work to do tomorrow? Go back and sleep now!”
As she was very well respected in the clan. Once they saw how annoyed she was, they stopped making any comments.
Tie Dan was concerned and added, “Xijiu, has he done something wrong to you? Is that why you are so angry? I was just wondering why he came back so suddenly and looked for you in a rush. Now I see why.”
Gu Xijiu was astonished. “What? Did he come back? When?”
“About four hours ago.”
“He asked many of us about your whereabouts, but none of us knew where you were.”
“Yes. From his expression, he seemed quite anxious.”
“He did not receive any news from us, so he went to see Governor Ye.”
Gu Xijiu did not know what to say. Four hours ago, she was still in the depths of the forest. It was the time she met Yun Yanli and was looking for Di Fuyi.
