“My Silver Wolf is one in a million. A hundred coins can only pay for its viewing. It is worth at least 100,000 silver coins.”
The man was speechless. He gave up on the Silver Wolf and sighed. “No one can afford to pay the price, unless…”
“Unless the princess fancies it. The Devil King can afford to pay that price. In fact, they are the only ones who can afford.”
The Silver Wolf heaved a sigh of relief. Playfully, Gu Xijiu gave it a gentle knock on the head. She then continued to inquire about the princess.
From the man, Gu Xijiu found out that the princess was actually the Devil King’s sister. He cared about her very much, giving her anything that she ever asked for. She was not an arrogant princess.On the contrary, she was a very understanding and graceful noble who loved the people as if they were her own children. Her beauty was also unparalleled. All the people in the Devil Kingdom adored her.
Gu Xijiu listened attentively, and so did the baby in her backpack. He seemed to enjoy the story.
“Is the baby yours?” The man finally noticed the baby. Their eyes met, and the man’s heart was instantly melted by the baby’s sweet, adorable smile.
Gu Xijiu laughed out loud but did not agree or disagree. “He is sweet, isn’t he?”
“The baby is a boy, right? He is so beautiful! I have never seen such a beautiful baby!” The man liked the baby a lot.
The baby looked attentively at the black wooden tablet that was hanging loosely at the man’s waist. Curiously, he reached out his little hand at the wooden tablet.
Amused, the man was very keen on sharing. He pulled the wooden tablet off his waistband and gave it to the baby. “Do you want to play with this? Here. Take it, but you have to give it back to me later. Without it, I will never make it through the city gates.”
The baby took the wooden tablet in his little hands. Gu Xijiu also paid attention to the tablet. It was small but exquisitely carved with patterns of the rolling clouds. In addition, his name and identity could also be found.
He was Luo Zheng, 25 years old; a businessman in the jewelry sector. Obviously, it was the wooden tablet required to enter the city. Without the wooden tablet, she could never make it through the gates. She looked up and noticed the dark green city walls from a distance.
“Miss, you need to get your wooden tablet ready. We are almost at Fanyin City.”
“Certainly,” Gu Xijiu answered casually before pretending to look into her sleeve for her tablet.
A moment later, she seemed panicked as she exclaimed, “Oh, no! My tablet is gone!”
Luo Zheng was concerned for her. “How did you lose it? Without the tablet, you will not be able to enter.”
With a sob, Gu Xijiu sounded as if she was about to cry. “What should I do? It was with my child. He wanted to play with the tablet, so I gave it to him and forgot to keep it back. I must have lost it while we were on the way here.”
The baby was busy playing with the wooden tablet when Gu Xijiu made up the story. Irritated, the baby stared at Gu Xijiu fixedly.
Gu Xijiu ignored the sharp look in his eyes and continued to make up the story. “Brother Luo, I have come a long way to be here. Will you pretend that we are your closest relatives and take us with you into the city?”
Gu Xijiu was not very beautiful, but her bright, watery eyes were sparkling with hope, enough to charm the man.
