Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
After some small talk, Di Fuyi was concerned that Gu Xijiu might be having a hard time digesting the food while sitting down, so he pulled her up and went for another walk with her.
Gu Xijiu saw the words that filled another part of the gardens and was quite embarrassed. “Fuyi is gone along with everything else,” she wrote. Her desperate remarks spoiled the entire view of the gardens.
She quietly rolled up her sleeves and performed a spell to wipe away the words along their walk. Deep down, she wanted to restore the place to its original beauty.Wiping away these words also made her feel better; it was like getting rid of her past anxieties and exasperation in one go.
Stealthily, Gu Xijiu tried to remove the marks without Di Fuyi knowing. Di Fuyi had nothing against it. He only held her hand and walked the path together as if nothing was happening.
As they continued walking, one of the stones they passed had a carving that said, “Di and Jiu, forever.” Di Fuyi immediately stopped her from removing it. “Keep this one.”
It was at that point that Gu Xijiu realized that Di Fuyi knew what she had been up to all this time.She looked up, only to find Di Fuyi’s hand on her forehead. “This is a good sign and should never be wiped away. However, you may wipe the phrase about how I was gone like everything else because I will never be away from you ever again.”
Gu Xijiu was delighted by the last promise that he made to her. “I take that as a promise. If you abandon me again, I will surely take revenge this time.”
“Oh, baby, why did you make it sound so serious? How do you plan on getting revenge, exactly?”
Gu Xijiu had to pause to think about the master plan but realized that she would never hurt the man she dearly loved. She could not even find the courage to hurt his little finger.
However, that did not mean that she could not hurt other people. After a while, she finally came up with a great plan. “If you ever leave me again, I will become completely demonized, like a killing machine with no emotions. I will turn the entire world upside down.”
Di Fuyi was at a loss for words. He looked at her in astonishment, as he had never thought that she would make such a solemn statement with such serious consequences, which did not sound like her at all.
Gu Xijiu was shocked by the remark as well. Was there something wrong with her? There were many other ways that she could get her revenge. If they really had to be apart from one another again, there were always ways to help her forget about him. She could even descend to the Underworldfor a bowl of Meng Po soup to forget all of her earthly existence.
Therefore, her statement did not make much sense to Di Fuyi. Gu Xijiu herself tried to shake the thought away. “I was really worried that you might leave me alone again. I never meant any of those childish things that I just said to threaten you,” she explained while gently patting his shoulder as a sign of comfort.
Di Fuyi’s heart sank a little. He found out from Di Hao that the boy already became an orphan not long after he was born. He did not have a good upbringing.Could what Gu Xijiu just said be a prediction of their future tragedy?
He took a deep breath and made a promise to himself that such a tragic ending should never happen to them. Then, he pulled her into his arms and said, “Don’t worry, you will never get the chance for your revenge. No matter what happens, I will always be by your side.”
Gu Xijiu planted a soft kiss on his chin. “I know. I trust you.”
The topic was unusually awkward and somewhat ridiculous, so Gu Xijiu decided to talk about something else. “What do you think about Fan Qianshi? I believe that he will not give up so easily. Someday, he will come back to us again.”
“Of course. After spending so much effort on the plot, he surely will not let this go. If I am not mistaken, Long Fan must be one of his embodiments back in the day. Perhaps even the character of Zhu Duqing. He must have been the one behind the invasion from the people from the Blue Fox planet as well.”
“How do you know?”
Di Fuyi showed her a book in his hand. “The book has a record of some of the history of the Great Celestial Master. He and his men first discovered the Starry Crescent Land. He was also the one who made the rules and regulations for the Blue Fox family. He died of old age, eventually, and was buried. I sent someone to check the coffin, but it was empty. The members of the Blue Fox family are born with a unique characteristic that allows their skeletons to stay intact for more than 10,000 years.”
