Gu Xijiu rubbed the soft hair on its head and asked, “What about your little master? Do you know where he is?”
Little Xie Zhi nodded.
Gu Xijiu heaved a sigh of relief. “Very good! Take me to him.”
Little Xie Zhi nodded again and kissed her palm with its tongue.
Gu Xijiu patted its head. “When you exit the place with me, don’t be too close to me. You have to pretend like you were forced to give in. Do you understand?”
Its little eyes blinked. It tried to raise its head and looked at Gu Xijiu. It then pretended to be with Gu Xijiu unwillingly.
Gu Xijiu shook her head. “No, this is too arrogant. You do not look like you have given in.”
Little Xie Zhi was quite confused and scratched its head with its claws. It made several attempts in succession, all of which were rejected by Gu Xijiu. It then lost confidence and started to tear. Little Xie Zhi was disappointed that it could not act.
Gu Xijiu thought about it and finally found a solution. “You will treat me as the real Servant Ye. You have to succumb to her. What would that look like?”
Little Xie Zhi immediately snorted angrily. It showed its small fangs that just grew out, then clamped its tail. It looked dejected and walked a few steps around Gu Xijiu. While walking, It occasionally stared at Gu Xijiu angrily.
Gu Xijiu then turned and took it out. When they stepped out the door, the guards naturally inquired about it. Gu Xijiu answered casually, “It has already been succumbed to be used by our princess. I will take it to see the princess now.”
Those guards looked at Gu Xijiu and looked at the dejected little Xie Zhi. He did not look suspicious, so they just waved and let her go.
After it was free, Little Xie Zhi immediately took Gu Xijiu to the little baby by tracing his breath. They walked all the way to the end of the princess’ house. Gu Xijiu was still somewhat puzzled. Since the princess had already gotten the kid, she was supposed to treasure him. Why did she not ask people to cage him in the courtyard near her? Instead, they seemed to send him to a remote place. After all, the few yards around her were supposed to have the highest security.
For instance, the place that caged little Xie Zhi was the place located three courtyards away from the main house. If there was anything unusual, she could easily hear it. It just did not add up at first. However, this doubt was quickly solved. Before Gu Xijiu reached the last courtyard, she heard a burst of crying.
The crying was high in tune. Sometimes the crying was sharp; sometimes, it was high pitched. It even sounded fierce sometimes. It was as though it could drill through one’s brain and sting their ears.
The courtyard was very remote, with only two maids guarding at the door. The two maids frowned and felt lifeless. Gu Xijiu was still in the appearance of the maid, swaying around with little Xie Zhi. The maids at the door were apparently not in a high position. They quickly saluted her.
Gu Xijiu raised her chin slightly. “Why is he still crying?”
The two maids almost wanted to break down in tears. “Sister Ye, this little kid has been crying nonstop, and still hasn’t taken a break!”
They almost became deaf!
Gu Xijiu asked again, “Why did you not entertain him?”
“Oh, it is useless. This little kid closed his eyes and cried.”
Gu Xijiu nodded in acknowledgment. “I am going in. You can take a break.”
The two maids could not wait for this message. They answered, turned around, and ran! They were faster than rabbits!
Gu Xijiu then dashed inside while Little Xie Zhi was busy keeping up.
