Yun Yanli and Gu Xijiu were on the second floor of an elegant restaurant. It was quiet and peaceful up there and was undoubtedly a delightful location. Initially, this restaurant was full. However, after they came, a few people who had initially been booked this elegant room suddenly left due to an emergency. Therefore, both of them managed to get this room.
Suddenly there was some commotion downstairs. Gu Xijiu was quite bored, so she went to the window to check it out. Her heartbeat raced rigorously! It was the birthday party of the son of a modest officer in the city. This family probably wanted to show off. Thus, they held the birthday banquet in the most luxurious restaurant in the town and reserved the entire first floor.
At that moment, it was time for gifts to be presented to their son. Many guests were walking forward to provide birthday presents to the kid. The kid was held in the arms of his mother. He had a pair of big eyes with double eyelids and looked very adorable. When the guests played with him, he giggled, and it made him look very cute.
Gu Xijiu could not help but look at the child. She did not know what was going on, but she somehow felt that this scene was very familiar to her.
“I also want to give your son a gift.” A soft female voice came out from an elegant room on the second floor. Along with the sound, everyone saw a woman in white come down.
This woman had white hair and wore a white dress.Her hair was so long that it could almost reach her feet. She used a black jade hairpin to keep her hair neat. The white dress she wore was simple in design, but it fitted her body very well. There was a whirling design on it that swayed along with her every move.
She wore a butterfly-shaped mask on her face which revealed only a pair of jade-like eyes and a slightly thin lip. There were a lot of guests in the restaurant, and a number of them were female. However, no one had the same aura as her! Her fair skin made her look elegant and pure. When she stood there, her white dress fluttered and as if she were standing in the middle of the cloud.
Although her face was covered and people could not see how she looked like, this kind of elegant feeling was enough to attract every pair of eyes in the restaurant! Some people’s eyes fell on her and were full of curiosity. Even the host was curious as he did not seem to know her. The kid’s father stepped forward and asked, “Miss, who are you?”
The woman smiled slightly and turned around briefly. In her palm was a delicate longevity jade lock. The jade was warm and shining. She handed it over. “I like your son from the moment I first saw him, so I want to wish him well with this gift.”
The woman’s voice was slightly hoarse, but it was not difficult to hear. It was so gentle to the ears that no one could possibly dislike it.The male host saw her tender hand, and his heart shook. He replied, “Thank you, miss.”
He raised his hand to take the jade lock from her palm. When he reached her palm, he scratched it. The woman’s palm went stiff, but she did not retract it. She just frowned slightly. The man took the longevity lock and handed it to his wife behind him.
When his wife was trying to keep the lock, the woman spoke. “Madam, you can wear the lock on your son and see whether it suits him. If it does not suit him, I will need to take back the lock.”
Was this some sort of gift that could be recalled? The guests looked at each other, confused. Gu Xijiu looked down from upstairs, and her heart seemed to be struck! This situation was very familiar! She vaguely felt that she had personally experienced it before!
While observing the entire scene unfold before her eyes, Gu Xijiu suddenly saw a black-robed man fall from the sky and give a box to a kid who looked five or six years old. “This gift is given to you as your birthday gift…”
