He Had Failed So Thoroughly

He took a look at his hands and then closed his eyes in contemplation. Di Fuyiknew that her memory was slowly recovering. To his dismay, the first person that she thought of was still Huang Tu, who was also known as Celestial Master Zuo.
In the fragments of her memories, the man still existed. Huang Tu was still the one that she cared about the most. As for him, he was nothing but her mission, the last hope for her to bring her deceased love back alive. Furthermore, after all this time, he was only a junior to her. He was also the only one that had unfortunately fallen in love. He was, unfortunately, trapped in a love that was not mutual.
He did not know when he started to have feelings for her. He did not know how he got himself so madly in love with her. He thought that their coexistence in the Shura World was his second chance. Without any memory of her past, he believed that it was a great time for him to compete with her deceased lover.
There would not be any age gap between them and her obsession with Huang Tu would not come and haunt them. He wanted to make her fall in love with him completely. If he succeeded, he hoped that when her memory was finally returned to her someday, she would choose to stay with him. He would be the one she truly loved at that moment. He would take responsibility for her.
Nevertheless, nothing happened as planned. Her love for Huang Tu was unmoving, deeply immersed in every inch of her flesh and bones. It had become her intuition. As for their current relationship, it was merely a false illusion. As the surface of the water, a small stone would be enough to ripple the entire image.
“Let me tell you, Di Fuyi, that it is impossible. I have always been 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, 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.”
No matter what he did, he would never be able to replace the one in her heart. He had failed so thoroughly.
“Gu Xijiu, I have been asking for too much.” He mumbled, followed by a few violent coughs. He could not stop coughing and felt as if he was about to cough his lungs out. His frequent coughing was the only sound that he could hear in the quiet forest. Apparently, he had attracted dozens of ferocious beasts, as they started to howl in response to the sound he made.
Under normal circumstance, these beasts would not be able to harm him at all. But now, he refused to even defend himself. Step by step, the wild animals approached him and slowly revealed their sharp fangs.
Gu Xijiu felt that she was in a dilemma. Obviously, she was furious at him, so much so that she wanted to make a clean break. At the same time, the only thing that filled her mind was her thought of him.
She recalled all of his expressions and words from the beginning when they first met until the very last moment when they broke up. She still remembered his face when he claimed to be her fiancé, his smile when he teased her, and his disappointment when their relationship fell apart.
After a brief walk, she found herself in the inn, and before she knew it, she was back in the room. Di Fuyi reserved the room for her. If she was really determined for a clean break, she should leave the room immediately and check out in order to uphold her unyielding character.
However, now that she was in the room, she could not find the courage to leave. She tried to convince herself by saying that it was already too late to find another place to stay. It was only a night, and she would leave tomorrow to look for a new room. In the end, she stayed in the room but was not able to calm down. She was in a state of agitation.
Although she tried to meditate, most of her attention was actually focused on the room next door. Di Fuyi’s room was right next to hers, so she could definitely hear the sound of the door when he returned. However, she heard nothing, even after two hours.
Her teleportation made her journey to the city with Yun Yanli much quicker. However, he should have been back by now.
