The Compensation That Di Fuyi Asked For (3)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
The changes in events since Di Hao’s arrival would surely have altered the upcoming scheduled events that Di Hao had personally experienced. Infact, Gu Xijiu being taken away from the Shura World came as a surprise to Di Hao.
At that point, Di Fuyi knew that he had no one to count on but himself. He spent a lot of time looking around without finding a single clue. But one day, he heard Gu Xijiu’s voice echo in the air. “Fuyi, I miss you.”
He heard her voice wafting through the breeze. It was a surreal encounter because it felt so real even though Gu Xijiu was not around. It was so subtle that he would have missed her voice if he had not paid enough attention.
Di Fuyi quickly looked around for her but found nothing. He concluded that it was her inner voice that had called out to him.Once again, Di Fuyi found himself on the rotary platform. There were millions of possible outcomes to different lower bounds, with only one of them being the Starry Crescent Land.
He would not simply take a leap of faith, for he was not sure where he would end up. Fortunately, he was able to hear her thoughts. The more she thought about him, the better it would be for him to locate her through array formations.
Needless to say, a great amount of spiritual energy was required to create the array formation. It took even more effort to support the formation and keep it open since Di Fuyi was worried that he might have mistaken her location. He decided to keep the portal open until he could hear her voice again and locate her once again.
In the end, he spent almost a month at the rotary platform. Even Bai Ze and Kun Xueyi both felt that what he did was foolish because there was no guarantee that he would hear her voice again. However, right before despair swallowed him whole, her voice came through the air once more.
He quickly searched for her and marked down her location. Without wasting any time, he took the boy, who had been by his side all the while, and jumped across the rotary platform together with him.
Fortunately, he returned to Starry Crescent Land once more. There was no time for him to catch his breath. He needed a plan so that he could be reunited with his wife as soon as possible. However, when he learned about the current date in the Starry Crescent Land from a stranger, Di Hao took a surprising turn and became concerned about Yan Chen and Little Fox.
The following was another series of unexpected events that kept him without any sleep. Fortunately, he was tough enough to go through all the obstacles at once.
Di Fuyi only shared about his experiences briefly, but his story was enough to charm Gu Xijiu. She was touched by how much he was willing to do for her. She snuggled her head in his arms at that point and looked very pleased.
Nonetheless, Di Fuyi squinted his eyes in disapproval at her and said, “It had been such a long time that we were apart, and yet you have only thought about me twice.” At one point during his long wait, he was quite convinced that she had lost her memory again and forgotten about him.
“Impossible!” She defended herself. “I thought about you every day. I just never showed it.”
“I only heard your inner voice twice,” Di Fuyi teased in a flirtatious manner. “Perhaps, you are not that into me, after all.”
Gu Xijiu did not see that coming. His last remark rather hurt her as it made it seem that he was unaware of her feelings for him. She was just too busy to announce how much she missed him publicly. She knew that they would not be able to meet anytime soon, so she decided to keep her thoughts to herself. It was only when she was alone and vulnerable that she would express her longing for him.
After trying to recall everything, it seemed like she had truly only mentioned his name twice. But to be fair to her, she did not know that he was able to hear her inner voice. Otherwise, she would have done it every day. She explained all this to Di Fuyi to try to make sure he knew what had really happened.
Given this strange connection that the two had, Gu Xijiu predicted that if she had thought of him long enough while she was in Tianju Hall, which was where Di Fuyi used to stay, there was a chance that she could develop some psychic powers that would somehow connect their hearts and minds together.
While that idea would certainly be amazing, Di Fuyi did not intend to let her off the hook so easily. “I think I need some compensation from you.”
“How should I compensate you for what had happened?” Gu Xijiu was willing to offer him anything that he wanted.
“Think about it yourself.” Di Fuyi then hugged her while waiting for an answer.
“There he goes,” she thought to herself. The man was going to ask for the compensation that he thought he deserved.
