Di Fuyi smiled coldly. “Why do you believe others so easily? Since you do, you deserved to be deceived. I am a trickster that enjoys deceiving others. Instead of letting you go out into the world and be deceived by others, it would be better for you to help me cure my addiction or at least quench my thirst in this aspect. And, today, no matter how much you cry, you have to practice the flying technique, or you can forget about going home! My favorite pastime is to spend my time with a crying child. When I see you cry, I have a sense of accomplishment.”
Di Xuyue was speechless. She finally realized that she could not escape; her best option was to face her fear and practice. She also did not want her father to drop her from the sky again to force her to find her footing on the way down. Therefore, she chose to comply with him and practice flying.
After trying again and again, she finally mastered the art of flying! She could now fly very fast yet steadily.Di Fuyi had spent the entire day with her and was pleased to see her making progress. Whenever he saw her practicing on her own, he rewarded her by giving her some fruits and toys.
Nonetheless, Di Xuyue was rather stubborn and was not ready to forgive her father. She was still angry at him the entire time. Although she had been starving the whole day, she was too proud to accept his toys and fruits.
As a result, her father put them away, patted her little head, and praised her for being tough. Instead of pampering her, he asked her to continue being tough.
Di Xuyue was so angry that she could not help but shed a few tears. The little girl took the opportunity to threaten her father by telling him that she would go home and complain to her mother about the way he had been treating her! However, this place was thousands of miles away from home. With her current skills, she could not fly back, so naturally, her mother could not save her from this torture. Thus, her words were purely meant as an empty threat.
As expected, her father was not afraid. He did not comfort her, and just let her continue crying. In typical fashion, he patted her head and told her to look for him when she was all cried out. He was going to take a dip in the ocean and catch some fish. If she cried long enough, he would cook some fish for her for dinner.
Alas, Di Xuyue finally understood that crying was not going to get her out of the situation. Nonetheless, the misery was just overwhelming for her, so she continued to sob slightly longer on her own.
Di Fuyi really left her to go fishing at the lake. He would let this girl cry until the place flooded if she wanted.
All the crying only added to Di Xuyue’s hunger. She was starving but could not win her father’s sympathy and compassion. That drove her to feel angry and annoyed as well. After some time, she suddenly smelled the taste of grilled fish from a distance. That was the last straw for her.
In the end, she just ran over to her father and grabbed one of the fishes that he was grilling without uttering a single word. Di Fuyi did not stop her, but he looked at her very interestingly. “I thought you were adamant that you did not want anything from me? Why are you taking my fish?”
Di Xuyue’s simply took a mouthful of fish without entertaining her father. How much was her pride worth after all? How important was it for her to be tough? When she needed to be soft, she had to do so for her own benefit. Otherwise, she would be at a disadvantage. After spending almost the entire day together, Di Xuyue understood this theory and realized the malice that exists in the world.
When the little girl returned, Gu Xijiu realized that she was better behaved. She did not cry that frequently and had overcome her fear of heights. What surprised her from the beginning was that Di Xuyue had flown back home!
Naturally, the little girl was exhausted. The moment she returned, she plunged herself into Gu Xijiu’s arms, asking for love and comfort. She even bit her lips and complained about the way her father had treated her.
She wanted to cry, but she had cried too much over the past two days. Her tear glands were empty. To add to her misery, she saw herfather smiling at her from a distance, so she chose not to cry anymore.
