Would It Be Too Cumbersome?

Gu Xijiu subconsciously looked at her wrist. Fortunately, the Firmament Stone was still attached to it! It had been quiet for the last half-hour, having constantly moved from Di Fuyi’s wrist to Gu Xijiu’s wrist to transfer over Di Fuyi’s spiritual power.Being so focused on moving the crystals from before, and she had not paid any attention to it.
“Little Cang, what happened to Di Fuyi?”
The Firmament Stone did not respond. Had it also turned into a stone?
Gu Xijiu flicked it with her fingers. “Talk!”
The Firmament Stone did not flash. Perhaps it was too tired and had shut down.
Her attention turned back to the jade statue, and she suddenly realized something.Di Fuyi was originally wearing a purple robe, but this jade statue was wearing a white robe. The material of the robe was also rather strange. It was not silk, but when she touched it, the material felt very smooth and warm. The bottom part of the robe was also designed in a rather unique fashion. It did not have dragons or phoenixes or flowers. Instead, it merely looked like the sun and the moon with a collection of stars. It was rather impressive and made him look as though he was a person of noble status.
Was this really Di Fuyi? Was he so uncomfortable before that he found the need to change his attire? What was going on here? Gu Xijiu felt rather panicked by the perplexing turn of events. She leaned on his chest and tried to listen for a heartbeat but did not detect anything. After all, the figure in front of him was a statue.
She called out to him, but he did not answer either. Did someone kidnap Di Fuyi and leave a statue behind to deceive her?She took a deep breath and tried to calm her mind as she started to think about Di Fuyi’s features. The man had a good physique. Although he had been injured several times since he was young, none of the injuries left any scars on his body. It was perfect. In fact, it was too perfect that Gu Xijiu could not even tell if this was really him.
All of a sudden, she recalled that there was a birthmark on top of his left thigh. The place was so private that if she had never had sex with him, she would never know that it existed. Hence, if someone tried to make a replica statue of him, the birthmark would probably be missing.However, to check the specific area, Gu Xijiu needed to remove his clothing.
Unconvinced, Gu Xijiu stood there, contemplating whether she should remove his clothes. Would it be too cumbersome if she stripped it off?! Nonetheless, if she did not, how would she be able to verify whether this statue was really Di Fuyi? Furthermore, since no one was around, it seemed like there was no downside. Hence, she went ahead and removed his robe.
The moon was extraordinarily bright during the mid-autumn season of the year. In fact, it was time for the annual Mid-Autumn Festival. The round moon had risen high in the sky and was clear and bright. The clouds looked like pieces of cotton wrapped around the moon. It was certainly a breathtaking sight.
On the bank ofTaihu Lake, the moon was reflected onto the lake. It looked somewhat mysterious when ripples scattered the surface. Meanwhile, the surrounding streets were sprinkled with bright lights everywhere.There was a mountain peak in the middle of Taihu Lake. Although the peak was not very high, it was an excellent place to watch the moon.
In a small pavilion on the peak, two people were sitting opposite each other. There were a few pastries and side dishes laid on the table in front of them along with a jug of wine.
