Chapter 2816 We Seem Destined To Meet
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Both of them examined one another, but Gu Xijiu was the first to panic. The intruder was none other than Di Fuyi!
Gu Xijiu never thought they would meet in the wild. More importantly, she was naked. She quickly kicked and splashed water onto his face in order to distract him and cause a small turbulence in the water. Gu Xijiu seized the window of opportunity to return to the land. Her robes were automatically directed to her, and soon, she was effortlessly dressed.
The entire escape took place rather quickly. Hence, she staggered a little to her feet when she landed. Other than that, everything went smoothly.
Nonetheless, her heart continued to pound in her chest. Being seen naked by another man could be awkward to deal with. She wished she could just disappear right at that moment, but the man already emerged from the water. His intense gaze never left her.
Leaving would only make her look defeated. It was not an option for the creator of the universe, who should keep her composure at all times.
“Why are you here?” Gu Xijiu returned his gaze but was soon embarrassed by what she saw.
The man was naked from the waist up. Although only his head and shoulders were above the water, the clear water was no shield to the rest of his lean, muscular body.
There was only a thin layer of undergarment that covered him from his waist to his ankles. Normally, his muscular body was completely hidden when he was dressed; he usually looked like a man of poise and grace. She never thought that he was actually a very well built man, physically.
The stature of his body was beyond perfect. Every inch of his muscle was firm and shapely, contributing to his unworldly beauty and effortless grace. Especially now that he was casually undressed with wet hair clinging onto his naked skin, it was a rather breathtaking view.
Di Fuyi finally recognized her. “I did not know you were here. We seem destined to meet.”
She was unsure if destiny was a blessing or a disaster. Nevertheless, Gu Xijiu emphasized her question again, sternly, “You have yet to answer my question.”
Di Fuyi took it easy and slowly approached the shore. “Divine Lord, I was here first. I should be the one directing the question at you.”
He was right. He did not emerge from the depths of the pool on purpose, only to catch her naked. In the blink of an eye, he was already by the shore. Perplexed, she took a few steps back. “What are you doing?”
“I am getting out of the water. Do you really think that I will be in the water for long?” Droplets of water continued to linger on his supple skin, which sparkled like diamonds under the light.
Just then, Gu Xijiu realized that it was inappropriate for her to stare. Therefore, she turned around to avoid looking at him. “Get dressed. I have something to ask you.”
Di Fuyi hesitated a little while trying to get dressed. In amazement, the view of Gu Xijiu’s back caught his attention. “Sure,” he answered without any resistance, which was rare.
It did not take long for him to get fully dressed like the gentleman that she used to know. However, his complexion was unusually paler than his healthy self. Water continued to drip from his hair, which somewhat affected his sleek outlook.
He wanted to dry his hair with a spell, but Gu Xijiu thought that he was taking a little too long. Without any time to waste, she cast a cleaning spell to dry him up in an instant.
Her act obviously caught him by surprise.
Meanwhile, Gu Xijiu sat on the top of a big rock. “Shouldn’t you be helping the Tu family to succeed to the Monster Kingdom? Why are you here, all of a sudden?”
Di Fuyi put a casual smile on his face and avoided her question. “Did you ask me to stay only to ask me about that?”
He did not answer any of her questions.
