Before he could finish his sentence, the bowl of congee was already splashed right across the floor. Gu Xijiu had pushed the bowl off the table.
“Go away!” She sternly said as soon as the bowl shattered on the floor.
Fan Qianshi was utterly surprised by Gu Xijiu’s sudden reaction. His fingers immediately started to tremble uncontrollably under his sleeves. Before he could explain himself further, Gu Xijiu was already shouting at him. “I know myself better than you do, so there is no need for you to worry about me. Stay away for a month and don’t show up again.”
Fan Qianshi clenched his fists. “Yes,” he finally agreed after a long pause. He exited her room slowly.
The room fell into complete silence after his departure. The congee was still warm on the floor, infusing the air with its delicious scent. Gu Xijiu sighed while looking at the wasted food. The scent of the delicious congee was still tempting her.
She liked the taste of congee. Although she no longer needed sustenance from food, she could not keep herself away from all the delicious food in the world. Very often, she would disguise herself and join the locals in tasting good food.
Di Hao watched as Gu Xijiu hesitantly looked at the wasted congee on the floor for a while before clearing the mess up. He shook his head in disapproval, for he knew that Fan Qianshi was indeed hoping for something more from his relationship with Gu Xijiu. Nonetheless, Gu Xijiu obviously did not feel the same way about him. Fan Qianshi was only a disciple in her eyes.
Did Fan Qianshi become evil in the end by turning his love into hatred? To find out, Di Hao had to continue.
The scent of the congee managed to trigger Gu Xijiu’s appetite. She decided to disguise herself so that she could blend into the crowd at a famous restaurant in the Monster Kingdom. All she asked for was a bowl of red rice congee.
The place was rather crowded and filled with uproarious talk and laughter. However, Gu Xijiu did not request for an independent room. She enjoyed the hustle and bustle of life at times. The liveliness there certainly excited her.
The red rice congee from the restaurant tasted excellent, though it was a little expensive. A bowl of congee cost her 1,000 spiritual stones. Fortunately, Gu Xijiu had many spiritual stones with her, so the price did not bother her at all.
Her hunger for food took over her, so she decided to add more dishes to her meal. Just when she was happily eating, a sudden wave of silence took over the entire place. Gasps of astonishment could be heard across the air.
“Oh, my! He is so handsome!”
“Handsome is not enough to describe his ethereal beauty. He is surreal.”
The man’s appearance had provoked much discussion.
Gu Xijiu was curious, so she looked up and saw a handsome and young man by the door.
He stood as straight as an arrow, and his silky smooth, pitch-black hair gently hung across his shoulder. His exquisite features were as pretty as any artist could paint a man to be. There was a red jade piece embellished on his forehead band, faintly glistening with light. Meanwhile, the corners of his mouth twitched up into a nonchalant smile while he stared at the crowd with undivided attention.
His eyes swept across the hall, and everyone’s heart thumped with excitement whenever his eyes met with theirs. All the men sat up straight in a proper manner. As for the women, they were busy fixing their hair and makeup so that they could present their best selves.
In reality, Di Hao was in shock. His fingers were trembling so much that the spell almost failed to channel the vision over to him. He wondered who the man was and felt that hereminded him of his father, Di Fuyi. However, their looks were not exactly the same. In fact, the man in the vision was not as good looking as Di Fuyi.
Di Hao’s heart raced in excitement. He had to continue! Back in his vision, every table in the restaurant was already occupied. Some were full of people, while others still had seats available. Like Gu Xijiu, some were also in the restaurant all alone.
“Is there any room available?” The young man finally asked. His voice was charming and sweet.The waiter and the owner of the restaurant both shook their heads in unison. It was the busiest time of the day in the restaurant, so the rooms were all full.
