The Interrogation (3)

Di Fuyi knew it all along, but never questioned her. “Yun Qingluo, I did not want to question you because you were the one who saved my life. I did not want to embarrass you. But did you really think that you could hide the truth from me?”
Di Fuyi was immediately informed as soon as she sent the Devil Quenching Clothing away. She was taking the opportunity to lure Yun Yanli into the Devil Kingdom. As for the secret chamber, he had been there before, but the prisoners there were mostly Yun Yanli’s followers that were of little value. Di Fuyi did not really mind, as long as the prisoners were not from the Devil Kingdom. He only requested his men to keep an eye on the place.
“Yun Qingluo, you are Yun Yanli’s sister. What is your motive to be by my side?”
“There is no motive! He and I do not share any common goal!” Panicked, Yun Qingluo looked up and quickly explained, “Only a part of his sister’s soul has reincarnated into my body. He never thought of me as his sister, only a tool.”
Di Fuyi looked at her quietly and said nothing more. Hastily, Yun Qingluo continued with a red face, “He never cared about me. He only wanted me to work for him without the slightest regard for my safety. I did not want to be one of his men. I had no choice. There was no one I could count on in the Shura World, so I had to do as he told.”
“Yun Qingluo, you are not telling the whole story, are you? You said you were the incarnation of part of his sister’s soul, so he could use you. How did you end up in Starry Crescent Land, then? I heard that you had a great life there.”
Yun Qingluo trembled in fear. “I… I first reincarnated in Starry Crescent Land.”
He noticed the momentary blind panic in her eyes, but she calmed down almost immediately.
“That was really you! You were also named as Yun Qingluo, right? How dare you. I knew you had put me into trouble many times before,” Di Fuyi said nonchalantly. He tried to make it sound very casual, but deep down, he was anxious for an answer.
His remark came as an utter surprise to her. The words echoed in her ears while she desperately tried to come up with an explanation. She replied weakly, “You… I… I had never done so. I have always liked you!”
Eagerly, Di Fuyi was still waiting for an answer, with both his fists tightly clenched underneath his sleeves. He was tensed, but he never showed it. “Liked me? I think that it was my identity that you liked. After all, I used to be so superior and powerful back then.”
Yun Qingluo did not think it through and answered right away, “No! It was not like that! Even if you were not Celestial Master Zuo back then, I would still fall for you. I liked you for who you are, not your status.”
Celestial Master Zuo? He was Celestial Master Zuo! He was the man that should have been forgotten by the world, but not by Gu Xijiu. He was the man that she had been tirelessly searching for the past two centuries. He never knew that he was known as Celestial Master Zuo in his previous life.
Di Fuyi’s fingers went icy cold. His heart was throbbing, but he tried to stay calm and look casual. “Yun Qingluo, you seem to remember a lot about me. You knew it was I, so you chose to save my life a year ago, didn’t you? How could you lie to me when I was without any memory? Is this what you do to the people you like?”
Yun Qingluo would never tell him more than she should. For many times, Di Fuyi tried to interrogate her but to no avail. This time, he took the opportunity to ask her more while she was injured. Also, she was emotionally unstable because of the punishment that Di Fuyi made her suffer. She chose to tell him the truth, as she thought that Di Fuyi had finally recalled his past. His calm expression and temperament had clearly misled her.
