Had She Misread The Sign?
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Gu Xijiu had accomplished many things that day. Even though she was drained by all that had happened, she could not bring herself to fall asleep. She laid on the bed where Di Fuyi used to sleep. Centuries had passed since the last time he laid there, so his scent was no longer traceable. However, all the furniture and arrangements of the room still reminded her of the past.
The covers clung to her soft skin comfortably, but she found herself rolling around in bed. Since the cover once belonged to Di Fuyi, it was not surprising that it was of the highest quality. Everything that he used and owned would always be the best quality. Even after all these years, the cover still felt very soft and warm, reminding her of a wonderful summer day.
“Fuyi, do you miss me? You must be very anxious now. Perhaps, it is time for you to feel how difficult it is to look for someone.” In the dark, a smile seemed to appear on her face. To her people, she was the mighty Lord. However, she behaved like a child when she was with Di Fuyi. Even the thought of him made her feel weak.
Worrying about Di Fuyi was not something she would do this time around. He had finally recalled his past and even retained his powerful aura and Kung Fu. Nothing could possibly hurt him. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before they would be reunited.
Excited about his return, Gu Xijiu was eager to tell everyone that Di Fuyi had been resurrected; but, she was concerned that it might be a heavenly secret. If she were to reveal another heavenly secret, she could not be sure of the consequences that awaited her this time. What if Di Fuyi’s past was erased again? She could not afford to lose the man another time.
Perhaps, all that she needed to do was to be patient. She was certain that Di Fuyi would eventually show up. His appearance would definitely come as a shock to everyone, and she could not wait to see them gasp in disbelief. In particular, she looked forward to seeing the messengers’ reactions. It would be very entertaining.
Meanwhile, Gu Xijiu was curious if they had already known about DI Fuyi’s resurrection. Since Di Fuyi and Gu Xijiu could recall the past, she assumed that everyone else would have their memories of Huang Tu restored. So, why hadn’t they spoken a word of him?
This oddity led Gu Xijiu to believe that the people of the Starry Crescent Land did not experience the revelations that she had expected. They might have known nothing about it. In which case, it was of the utmost importance that Gu Xijiu keeps his return a secret. Besides, it would not change anything for the time being.
Secretly, Gu Xijiu started imagining the day that they would finally meet again. She predicted that his next destinationwould be the Upper Bound. However, the channel that connected the Upper Bound and the Starry Crescent Land had mysteriously disappeared, so it would be tricky for him to come to her.
Di Fuyi had told her that he once spent six months trying to look for a connection that could take him from the Upper to the Lower Bound, but could not seem to find one. What if he still could not find the way, this time?
The more she thought of it, the more insecure she became. Therefore, she eventually decided to get up and leave the bed. By the window, she stood and looked intently at the brilliant moon that lit up the night sky.
The moon was a slender crescent, and part of it was obscured by the clouds, thus adding a slight hint of mystery. People often claimed that reunions would happen whenever there was a full moon. She could not help but wonder when she would see one. With a sigh, she started caressing her tummy. “Little one, you will probably be a young lady by the time you meet your father. Also, little Di Hao will probably be all grown up by then.”
The near future sounded kind of depressing for her, so she tried to shake the thoughts away. She went to bed again and put her hands securely on her tummy, which was still flat – not giving away any sign of her pregnancy, unlike Little Fox’s.
She sat up abruptly as soon as she thought of Lan Waihu. The woman that she saw in the base camp of the Blue Fox family was clearly not pregnant. It suddenly occurred to her that the pregnancy could be the way to distinguish between the two of them!
