How Could They Look So Much Alike?

In other words, Kun Xueyi was still alive. Given that, she suspected that Guardians Jin and Hua must be alive, too. They were most probably imprisoned. As for Zhu Duqing, she had a feeling that she needed to be careful of that man.
Since there was no way she could escape, she continued to meditate. Although she could not access her spiritual power, her physical strength had completely recovered from the catastrophe. All she needed was a chance to make a move.
The luminous Milky Way glimmered brightly in the night sky. Specks of light formed into bright and colorful constellations. There seemed to be a canoe that was afloat along the Milky Way. The canoe was as blue as the clear sky, decorated with drawings of a stellar map. The starry night sky and the stellar map added radiance and beauty to each other, forming a dazzling picture.
A man in charming purple robes was sitting on the canoe. On his head, there was a hairband, embellished with a glistening gem in the shape of a fox’s eye. Gu Xijiu held her breath in disbelief. The man was clearly Di Fuyi!
Was he awake? How did he come here? For a second, she forgot where she actually was and rushed towards him. “Di Fuyi!”
With the help of her teleportation, she was traveling very quickly. However, no matter how fast she tried to get close to the man, the distance between them never seemed to reduce. It was as if she was running at the same spot.
The man was still leaning casually on his canoe, with a fishing rod in one hand and his chin on the other. He was there, fishing on his own.
Abruptly, she stopped running and looked carefully at the man. Something was not quite right. The man did not seem quite like Di Fuyi. Firstly, Di Fuyi did not possess such a powerful aura as the man did.
This man also seemed carefree, seemingly aloof from all worldly affairs. His aura, however, was immensely powerful, as if the fate of all cosmic inventories was under his sole control. The sun, the moon, and the myriad of stars were mere specks of dust that moved according to his command.
She stood gazing at him for a while and was quickly intimidated, so much so that she wanted to fall on her knees and bow to his mighty power. Who was this man? How could they look so much alike?
In a daze, she started to make sense of the current situation. Was she dreaming? She took another look at the myriad of stars, and everything seemed familiar to her. Then, asudden realization hit her. Could the man be the master of heavenly law?
She had the same dream before, where the man was sitting within a cluster of stars. He was arranging the cosmic matters when she saw him. However, thisman was fishing. In her earlier illusion, the man was not wearing any mask, but Gu Xijiu could never get close enough to see his face.
She could finally have a clear look at him this time. From the way he dressed, every detail of the garment reminded her of someone she met before. She could not help but reminisce about her past. She specifically thought about a man who once had a very profound relationship with her– a man who had undoubtedly left a very long-lasting impression on her mind.
She had an urge to call him Celestial Master Zuo but hesitated. “Do you prefer to be addressed as Celestial Master Zuo, Huang Tu- who used to be the Lord from the Earth- or Prince Nianmo- Di Fuyi, who is now the Devil King?” She was surprised by the sudden voice.
She looked towards the source of the voice and saw a toddler standing in the distance.He seemed very young, probably about two years old. He was staring at her with his big, watery eyes. The tone of his pink lips completely resonated with the faint blush on his chubby cheeks. He was wearing a small set of silver robes that looked like an exquisite work of art.
Gu Xijiu called him out loudly in astonishment, “Hao-Er!” The toddler was not a stranger. He was the child that she found in the wilderness- the one who acknowledged her so eagerly as his mother.
