The game was quite addictive, so Yun Yanli was interested in going a few more rounds, but Gu Xijiu has obviously tired. “Let us call it a day. We will play another game tomorrow.”
Yun Yanli thought about it for a moment and agreed, “All right, I will revisit you tomorrow.” He raised his hand to seal away her acupuncture points again. “Sorry. I have to do so.”
Gu Xijiu did not argue. She only nodded.
His eyes lingered on her face for a while before leaving the room. He longed for sweet little moments between them. He wished that time could just stop for him.
Gu Xijiu could not help but heave a sigh of relief, for the danger was finally over. She lay on the bed and started contemplating. Obviously, Yun Yanli was not familiar with the game, and the way he played was completely different from the so-called creator of the universe. Apparently, he was not the reincarnation of the man that she had a dream of.
She moved her wrist around to flex it a little, being sore from the games.
Before Yun Yanli placed the spell on her acupuncture points again, she secretly used a skill that she learned from the modern world to alter the position of the acupuncture points by half an inch. Due to the slight difference, Yun Yanli’s spell had failed, and one of his attempts had actually freed the flow of spiritual power in her body.
In other words, her Kung Fu was slowly recovering. She had at least a tenth of it back. The progress was not impressive, but it was enough for her to carry out some plans.
As soon as Yun Yanli left the room, he saw the young palace master standing not too far away from the door. Her blank gaze was clearly fixed in his direction.
Frowningly, Yun Yanli asked, “What is the matter?”
The young palace finally recovered from her preoccupation and said, “Master, there is only one more ingredient left. My men are working on it right now. Everything can be prepared by tomorrow night.”
Yun Yanli acknowledged with a nod. “Well done.”
He complimented her, but only verbally. He did not give her a firm tap on the shoulder, like how he used to.
There was a look of despair in her eyes, but she decided to fulfill her role and continued to report, “I have some news from other cities. Recently, some masters of Kung Fu have been making their appearances quite frequently around the administrative centers. The rain of blood should have happened two days ago in Leguo City, but it did not. Because of that, people are ready to make trouble. More and more have joined forces to search for the Star Formation in other cities. There seems to be a massive uprising.”
Yun Yanli was not quite bothered. “They are nothing but a bunch of fools. What damage can they do? Relax. When they finally see the wedding, they will believe in everything I say.”
The young palace master thought about it for a moment and asked faintly, “Master, are you really going to marry Gu Xijiu? Didn’t you say that the wedding was only baiting Di Fuyi to show up?”
“That is only one of the many reasons. I am still going to marry her.”
She was his biggest obsession, so he needed to make sure that she belonged to him. He was even more excited at the thought that she used to be Di Fuyi’s woman.
The young palace master’s face turned pale. “What… What about Die-Er? You have promised to marry me.”
Slightly surprised, Yun Yanli reassured, “Don’t worry. You have my word. I shall not treat you unfairly. When I finally reclaim my throne as the Emperor Immortal, I will definitely make you my Imperial Concubine Immortal.”
“What about Gu Xijiu? She has never stopped plotting against you. Her heart never belonged to you. Are you still going to appoint her as your Empress Immortal?”
Yun Yanli was obviously annoyed. “Ming Die, you have just crossed the line! Who do you think you are to meddle with my personal affairs?”
Intimidated, Ming Die quickly apologized for her misbehavior and said nothing more.
Yun Yanli needed her, so he would try not to upset her. He said some comforting words to her and made a promise that he would marry her the same way as he did with Gu Xijiu in a month.
