Accepting A Disciple

Gu Xijiu was utterly shocked! Meanwhile, Di Fuyi took a look at the bracelet in his hand, then at hers. He smiled at her, but only in a way that confused her even more.
“This thing has been around for tens of thousands of years. It is probably going a little haywire now. It must have thought that I am still its master, so it came right back to me.”
While she tried to explain herself, she tapped on the bracelet as if to wake it up. “Hey, Little White. Time to get to your new master.” However, the bracelet remained unresponsive.
Gu Xijiu tried the hard way. “If you refuse to obey me, I will break you into two halves.” Nonetheless, the bracelet still ignored her instruction.
Amused, Di Fuyi stood aside and watched as she performed multiple tricks to get the bracelet off her wrist. He could not believe that the name that she had given the bracelet was unbelievably simple.
“If it is named Little White, should mine be called Little Yellow?”
“No!” Gu Xijiu was against it. “Little Yellow does not sound right. Who would give it such a bad name?”
“What is it called, then?”
Dumbstruck, Di Fuyi paused for a little while. “Let us just agree that Little Gold is more appropriate,” Di Fuyi answered.
Gu Xijiu continued to try to get the bracelet off her wrist, but nothing worked. It was stuck! There was no way she could take it off.
Perplexed, Di Fuyi took another look at the bracelet on his wrist. He never took the matter seriously, nor had he thought about marrying someone. Although he was still young, he made up his mind that he would not fall in love throughout his life.
As for the Divine Lord, what he had done for her was mostly to take advantage of her powerful nature and then compensate her for the losses that she had to suffer. However, it turned out that there was also a small amount of emotions involved, though he did not see that coming.
Gu Xijiu started to panic. Desperately, she started thinking if she should try taking the bracelet off using one of her weapons. She looked up and was immediately locked in Di Fuyi’s intense gaze. His eyes indicated to her that he was smiling. “It can help me find my future wife, right?” He added.
Gu Xijiu could feel sweat dripping along her skin. “Technically, yes.”
“So, are you the one?”
“This… This must have been a huge misunderstanding. It must be reluctant to leave me. My spiritual power is at my all-time low now, so perhaps it thinks that it should stay to protect me. By the time my power comes back, it will let go of my wrist, surely.”
Di Fuyi answered with a tone of respect. “It seems this is also a righteous bracelet.”
“Of… Of course.”
Di Fuyi laughed at the absurdity. He did not comment any further and soon became occupied with his task of cooking the egg. The water in the pot was actually melted from snow, and the man was using some unique firewood. It was a kind of red sandalwood, which became fragrant when burned.
Troubled, Gu Xijiu did not expect that her good intention would end up in such a major misunderstanding. All she wanted was the pill. Anyway, since the golden bracelet had already been given away, he should at least give the pill to her now.
“Fuyi, shouldn’t you be giving me the pill now?”
Slowly, Di Fuyi used the Samadhi Fire to burn the red sandalwood. “Divine Lord, what you initially offered to me was a pair of bracelets. At the moment, I only have one, and the other one is with you. Since I only have one side, should I give you only half of the pill?”
Gu Xijiu was speechless. What use could there be with only half of the pill? Clearly, the man was wicked. He kept making up excuses to deny her request.
“In that case, would you please give Little Gold back to me?” Gu Xijiu reached out her hand to him.
Di Fuyi glanced at the bracelet on his wrist and answered casually, “I cannot take it off, either.”
