Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
“Even if you are the reincarnation of an ancient god, you must have changed your outlook in this life. Thus, even if I knew you in your past life, I would not be able to recognize you in this life.”
Di Fuyi looked at her intensely and blinked a few times in quick succession. Nevertheless, he did not speak.
Meanwhile, Gu Xijiu stepped closer to him and asked him hopefully, “Do I look familiar to you?”
Di Fuyi moved his eyes away from her, and faintly replied, “I have no impressionable opinion on people with a common face.”
Gu Xijiu was speechless. In fact, she was a bit angry with his last remark. “I have a common face?! I find my appearance to be unique!”
Whenever she appeared undisguised in public, she was like a beautiful landscape that always attracted attention. She would probably still look stunning even after she rolled around in a pile of charcoal.Perhaps, Di Fuyi just had a bad taste in women.
The man looked at her face again, and replied with just one sentence, “I do not see it.”
Gu Xijiu did not know what to say. Maybe, it was better for her just to dismiss it. Besides, why should she care about the preference of a man with bad taste?
After surveying the outside a little more, she realized that it was just too cold for her to stand up properly. She had covered herself in the thickest coat that she had, but she still could resist the chill that drilled into her bones.
Just then, a gust of wind blew over her and forced her to take a few steps back. While walking backward, she tripped over something and almost fell. Subconsciously, she screamed, “Catch me!”
Di Fuyi was very obedient and grabbed her into his arms. While in his embrace, Gu Xijiu realized that he was wearing a very thin set of robes.In fact, it was so thin that it was still fluttering from the gust of wind that just passed them. Nevertheless, while resting in his arms, she felt the warmth similar to standing in front of a hot stove.
Her hands and feet that were almost frozen by the cold quickly warmed up. At first, she wanted to step away from the man once she was able to steady herself. Nonetheless, at this moment, she did not feel like leaving his arms.
She paused for a while and decided to have a thick face. Instead of standing on her own, she whispered, “Take me to the wind vortex and let me give it a try.”
“Okay.” He carried her and walked over.
This vortex of wind was more prominent than they had ever seen it before. When they entered, Gu Xijiu caught a cold, and the veins in her body were almost frozen. Soon, she seemed to be losing her consciousness and was having blackouts. Quickly, she screamed, “Out…” However, before she could finish, she realized thather mouth was frozen! Not a single word could be uttered.
Deep down, she wanted to instruct him to evacuate the place quickly. But now, she could not say anything. “Oh, god!” She cursed in her heart.
At this point, she was quite sure that Di Fuyi hated her. If she were to freeze to death here, perhaps, he would even be happy to see it and would leave her body here.
Just when she thought that things could not get any worse, Di Fuyi, who was still carrying her, suddenly tripped and coincidentally fell out of the vortex!
Gu Xijiu thought that she was going to die in his chest, but after briefly coming out of the vortex, there was hope. She coughed uncontrollably the moment that she could breathe again as if someone who had just drowned and was revived.
Di Fuyi frowned slightly at the sight of her coughing. Intuitively, he gripped her vest as if he wanted to do something, but he held back.
Gu Xijiu was still unable to see, so she did not realize what Di Fuyi had done. Instead, she tried her best to instruct him, “Back… Back to the house…”
They finally returned to the ice house that Di Fuyi made. Gu Xijiu covered herself up in a blanket but still felt cold even though she was still wearing a rather thick coat. She did not stop shivering for a second since the incident from before.
