His kind gesture touched Gu Xijiu, so she decided to roll up her sleeves and join him. “Let me do it.”
The fish that she requested was a very rare find, so it would be best if he did not ruin it with his inexperience. Therefore, both of them worked together and prepared the entire meal that mainly consisted of fish. Nonetheless, Gu Xijiu was only a helper; he was still the chef for the night.
To Gu Xijiu’s surprise, the food that Di Fuyi had prepared was unexpectedly good. Gu Xijiu found herself filled with delicacies.
After dinner, Di Fuyi sat down next to her on the chair, and the couple watched the night sky together. Gu Xijiu was surprised to notice that the star chart was vastly different from the one that she observed before. Perhaps, a major incident had changed everything that she knew about the stars. In fact, it no longer made any sense to Gu Xijiu.
Di Fuyi noticed her bafflement and tried to explain the situation to her, “Xijiu, the stars that we once saw were the ones that portrayed the fate of the Starry Crescent Land. However, the chart that we are looking at now is the whole picture of every star that is present in the sky.”
Gu Xijiu finally understood why it did not make any sense to her. The chart that she was familiar with was probably solely restricted to the solar system. Perhaps, she was now looking at the fate of the entire galaxy!That also explained why she failed to find the star that represented her fate.
She took a quick look at Di Fuyi and wondered what he was thinking of at that time. The place was created entirely by him, so it was only natural that the things that they were looking at now had changed according to his field of vision. If the entire star chart of the universe was displayed right here, could it be that he was already on the verge of recovering his identity as the master of heavenly law? If he did, would he still be the same man that she used to know?
Understandably, Gu Xijiu was a little preoccupied with her thoughts and did not hear a thing that Di Fuyi tried to tell her about the stars and their features.
Di Fuyi had to shake his hand in front of her eyes to catch her attention. “Baby, time to come back. What were you thinking of this time?”
Gu Xijiu finally recovered from her preoccupation and caught Di Fuyi looking at her with a spurious smile. Without much thought, she said the first thing came into her head, “I did not ask to learn this! You forced me to learn the star chart because you wanted me to take over your role as the Lord before you were immortalized. Why are you teaching me this right now? Are you trying to pass me the heavenly…”
She realized the mistake and quickly stopped talking.
“Hmm?” Di Fuyi seemed puzzled.
She could not make up her mind about what she was trying to say, so she looked at him with a long pause, while trying to make up a legitimate excuse. “Did you receive any bad messages from the heavenly law this time? Are you trying to pass me your role again?”
Still slightly puzzled, Di Fuyi rubbed her hair and said, “You are overthinking. I do not have any role to pass on to you. Now that I think of it, I actually have one role. I am now the husband of the Lord. Shall I pass the role to you?”
He managed to tickle Gu Xijiu with the joke. “You and your sweet talk! If you have nothing to offer to me, why are you telling me about the star chart?”
“Silly, I am simply sharing the knowledge with you. In fact, this is the first time I am looking at it.”At this point, he started to have some doubts. If this was his first time looking at the chart, why did it feel so familiar to him? He was even able to read the star signs without being taught.
Between him and Fan Qianshi, he could not decide which one of them was the master of heavenly law. He had always doubted that he could be the master of heavenly law until Fan Qianshi showed up.
After all, Fan Qianshi’s Kung Fu was beyond Di Fuyi’s level of understanding.Hence, it made sense for Fan Qianshi to be the master of heavenly law because of his powerful strength and ability to control many things at once.
However, he changed his mind a little after he realized that he could read the star chart without any foundation or reason. But, if he was the master of heavenly law, what was Fan Qianshi’s role?
