Di Fuyi crossed his arms and replied, “The pill is rather valuable. I do not offer it to anyone quite as frequently. Also, I remember that we do not owe each anything other anymore, so I do not see the point.”
Gu Xijiu disdained his tone of mockery. She took another look at the vortex of spiritual energy swirling in the air and was rather troubled. It was like staring at a huge pot of treasure that she was not allowed to touch.
“I can offer you something else in exchange for the pill. Take a look and see what you fancy,” Gu Xijiu suggested while opening up her storage bag wide enough for him to choose something. She then took out dozens of other stuff, each with its own value.
Di Fuyi took a casual look. “You do have many valuable things to offer, but I do not like any of these. I have no intention to trade.”
Gu Xijiu clenched her fists in mild irritation. Determined, she proceeded to take out a pair of bracelets from a very hidden corner of her storage bag. The bracelets shone with seven-colored rays, glistening with a sense of auspiciousness and beauty the moment they were presented, as ethereal as infinite light.
“I will trade the pill for this pair of bracelets.” She was concerned that he might not know about the bracelets’ value and added, “The jade was harvested from within the cores of the Buzhou mountains. The pair of jade bracelets were made naturally over time. These bracelets are treasures, both equipped with spiritual senses. In times of danger, they can be turned into Glass Dragons to protect you.”
She gave the bracelets a flick, turning them into a pair of Glass Dragons of lustrous white and yellow. The yellow one was as shiny as gold, whereas the white one was as pure as snow. They surrounded Gu Xijiu obediently, winking and nodding to her. Their cuteness was almost irresistible.
However, Di Fuyi was not interested at all. “These things are so girly. They look fancy, but are not practical.”
Gu Xijiu, in her defense, answered, “These things are not only for girls. Have you seen these Glass Dragons? They will choose their own master and his or her partner. Once matched, they would hook themselves onto their newly found masters. You are still young, so I am sure there will come a time when you look for a wife. With these bracelets, it will be easy.”
Di Fuyi finally responded. “Are they made for matchmaking? Why haven’t they found someone for you?”
After a pause, Gu Xijiu still could not hide her amusement. “As the creator of the universe, marriage is not quite suitable for me.”
“Why not?” Di Fuyi asked.
“The creator is responsible for every existence in the world. I need to be compassionate for all and not affectionate to one. Personal relationships should be avoided at all costs so that I can dispense equal justice to all.”
Di Fuyi gazed at her. “Do you mean to say that the Divine Lord should never fall in love?”
“Who made this rule?”
“You are the creator of the universe. Everything that has ever existed, or will ever exist, is all created by you, Divine Lord. That means so are the rules. If something is not reasonable, you can always change it.”
“Which part of it is unreasonable?”
“Divine Lord, being in love is one of the many forms of love. You have friends and disciples, and you have shown them the qualities of kindness and humanity. Even your servant was showered with kindness. I know that you are capable of loving someone, so why should you keep yourself from falling in love?”
Gu Xijiu was a little dumbstruck, so she started reminiscing. Many years ago, there seemed to be more than just one creator. She had a feeling that she was not alone, but could not remember anything clearly. Nonetheless, they could have passed on. Like everyone else, catastrophe would strike, and immortalization would occur. She, for example, was going through the final stage of her long life.
With or without the rule, there was no reason for her to find a partner. Certainly, she was not going to share that fact with him. She did not want to linger on the topic, so with a smile, she said in a soft voice, “Young man, you are going off-topic. I intend to trade these bracelets for the pill. We are not here to discuss marriages.”
