Di Fuyi was not a man of exalted virtue, of that she knew. Was he doing his best as penance for Yuanyuan’s sin?
“Thanks,” Gu Xijiu acknowledged his effort with a hoarse voice. After going through the sweaty and painful process of recovery, she felt much better.
Di Fuyi paused as soon as he heard her. With a complicated look, he gazed at her as he replied, “Thanks? Do you really think that is what I want to hear?”
Gu Xijiu was speechless. However, she needed to make herself clear, “Your Princess Yuanyuan has condemned me to great torture. I appreciate your help in saving my life, but I will definitely make her pay for what she has done.”
At most, she would consider keeping Yuanyuan alive for his sake, but she would definitely make her suffer the same way, if not worse. Only then she could vent her anger for suffering.
Di Fuyi was a little affected by what she said, but chose to respond calmly, “Do as you please.”
Gu Xijiu paused and tried to understand what he meant. He must be saying that she could do as she pleased, but there was no way she could hurt Yuanyuan, for he was there to protect her. At the thought, she decided to say nothing more.
Di Fuyi pondered over the problem as he asked, “Have you known Yuanyuan for long?” He could feel that there must be a greater cause for what Yuanyuan did to her.
With a sigh, Gu Xijiu told him, “She looks like a former enemy that I used to have in the Saha World.”
“The Saha World? What sort of enemy?” Di Fuyi added.
It was a long story, but Gu Xijiu simplified it. “A woman who was jealous of a rival in a matter of love. She had put me into many difficult situations before, but lost her life to me in the end.”
Di Fuyi was not very impressed. “A rival in affairs related to love? Was it related to the Celestial Master Zuo, Huang Tu?”
Gu Xijiu paused as she could not remember anything related to Huang Tu. She shook her head and dismissed his speculation. “Not quite like that, as I recall. We were in the same school, and she did not like me very much.”
Di Fuyi made no further comments. It was fairly normal for students to be jealous of one another in the same school.
“So is Yuanyuan her reincarnation? How could you be sure that they are the same person?”
“Their personalities are the same. Their looks are almost the same. Both master the use of the puppet technique. Also, both of them are named Yun Qingluo! The only difference is their accent.”
Di Fuyi thought out loud, “It seems like it, from what you said. Did she reincarnate in the Shura World with memories from her previous life?”
Gu Xijiu thought the same. Confused, she looked at Di Fuyi. He seemed to know very little about Yuanyuan. He would not usually lack that kind of knowledge.
He was a smart man, but not quite in matters of love. Just like before, they had only met once in the Upper Bound when he was all grown up, and he immediately fell in love for her after a reckless adventure together without first knowing her true identity.He must have behaved the same with Yuanyuan.
When he loved someone, he would definitely tolerate with her past, wouldn’t he? It was just like how he tolerated with Gu Xijiu’s past as well.
“What else do you know about her? Tell me more,” Di Fuyi interrupted her contemplation. He raised his hand and cast the cleaning spell.
Irritated by his keen interest in another woman, Gu Xijiu was not interested in talking about her anymore. She stood quickly and immediately suffered from a blackout. With no support, she almost fell right off the couch.
Luckily, Di Fuyi reached out for her and pulled her into his arms. His heart raced, and he was reluctant to let her go. His embrace gave her a thrill too. Tears started rolling in her eyes. Determined, she took a deep breath and thanked him for his help. Then, she pushed his arms away.
