Is This How You Treat Your Friend?

Back in heaven, Gu Xijiu’s spiritual power was the highest among the three. She would have never imagined that one day she would be the weakest here in the Shura World. Could it be that God saw that she was too strong in the Upper Bound, so he sent her down to have a humbling experience?
Gu Xijiu’s fingers repeatedly tapped on the table; she was a little distracted. “Xijiu, if you found Mr. Fuyi, what would you do?” Yun Yanli started a topic that she might be interested in.
Gu Xijiu returned her attention to the room. She raised her glass to drink some wine. ” Nothing, I just want to make sure that he is safe.”
Yun Yanli’s eyes flashed for a moment. He smiled. “You are so obsessed with him. I would have thought that after you found him, you would want to marry him.”
“You overthink.” Gu Xijiu put an end to the chat. She just wanted to make sure that he was safe. The rest was not important at this minute.
She turned the bracelet on her wrist. It was a simple black bracelet that did not stand out in any way at all. However, it had been with her for as long as she could remember. When she woke up in this world, this bracelet was the first thing she saw.She remembered that when she saw it, it tried to flash, but then it became entirely black right after that.
In her subconscious mind, this bracelet seemed to have other compelling features, but she could not recall anything until now. Yun Yanli also looked at this ugly bracelet. He suddenly thought of something and smiled again. “Xijiu, this bracelet is worn out. I saw a bracelet in Ice City a few days ago, and it is quite suitable for you. I bought it and wanted to give it to you.”
He turned over his palm, and a bright bracelet appeared. Thematerial of this bracelet made it look crystal clear like water. However, there was a violet tint to it. In Yun Yanli’s palm, it looked like purple water. It was definitely a lovely accessory.
“Xijiu, this bracelet has a function- it has a protective effect. It can slow down the consumption of spiritual power in your body.”
Gu Xijiu’s heart jolted. There was no spiritual power in this Shura World. To gain spiritual power, one could only rely on absorbing spiritual crystal from the beasts that possessed them. Moreover, being in this world also consumed spiritual power from the human body. Thus, even if one did not fight with spiritual power, their spiritual power would be exhausted day by day.
Spiritual power practitioners here needed to absorb a grade three spirit crystal every ten days as a supplement. Fortunately, Gu Xijiu did not lack spiritual crystals; however, it was still beneficial if she had a way to slow down the consumption of her spiritual power.
Anyone would rightfully expect her to accept this bracelet immediately. However, she refused. “Thank you, but I have never liked jewelry items. You can give it to someone else.”
Yun Yanli looked away. After everything they had been through, she still refused to accept things from him. He had tried giving her a number of things throughout the year, but she had outright rejected them. Perhaps, she did not like the feeling of owing something to other people.
If it were not for his blood butterfly, it was possible that Gu Xijiu might not even be traveling with him. In order not to owe him anything, she decided to hunt for spiritual crystals for him.Every time Yun Yanli used his blood butterfly for her, she always gave him a grade two spiritual crystal as thanks. If he refused to accept it, she would not let him follow her anymore.
“Xijiu, I am your friend. Is this how you treat your friend?” Yun Yanli really wanted to say this to Gu Xijiu. However,he did not dare to.He was afraid that their relationship would be broken if he did so.
In the Upper Bound, he loved her secretly, and in the Shura world, he loved her carefully. He put away the bracelet and gently forced up the corner of his lips. It was done so forcibly that he could not tell if he was laughing at himself or treating it all as a joke.
