Marrying Someone Else (2)

Fan Qianshi was triggered. With his fists clenched, he decided to look past his concerns and told her how he truly felt, “I will never stop pursuing her unless she is married to someone else. Even if she banishes me, I will still come back to her and stick around stubbornly.”
Wu Qianyan was dumbfounded. Gu Xijiu, on the other hand, was starting to get distressed by him. After weighing her decisions, she chose to leave right away.
“I will never stop pursuing her unless she is married to someone else.” His words kept playing back in Gu Xijiu’s head, pushing her to come up with a solution.
He was the only disciple that she ever had, so his complete banishment was not an option.
Moreover, banishing him would not solve the problem at all as he seemed very determined to pursue her, regardless. Killing him was not an option, either.
So it seemed that there was only one way she could end the entanglement for good – by marrying someone else.However, there was a problem with that option – she only had three years left to live. There were many things that she needed to attend to within that time. So, finding a relationship was surely not a priority. Even if she chose to marry someone else, it would only be a show to fool Fan Qianshi.
Besides, Fan Qianshi’s keen intelligence was not to be underestimated. If she simply put on a show, there was no way he would believe it. Things would be worse if he found out about the truth. Given his rebellious behavior, he would probably be driven to do unimaginable things.
She believed that Fan Qianshi would not harm the man that she chose to marry while she was around. But once she was immortalized, perhaps the man would become an unfortunate victim of Fan Qianshi’s rage.
Gu Xijiu did not want to push any man to his death, so the man that she chose to marry had to be single and superior in many ways. There would be no feelings involved, only business. She did not want to leave any problems for the future.
She wondered who would be the best candidate, so she started creating a list of possible men, but none of them truly fit her criteria. Some of them were disqualified because of their incompetence, while some were ineligible due to their personalities. Others had feelings for her, whom she would very much like to avoid.
Just as she was about to give up hope, Di Fuyi’s name somehow came into light. Many of Di Fuyi’s qualities could immediately outshine Fan Qianshi’s. Also, he had always kept his distance, so there was no way he would fall in love with her. Therefore, he seemed to fit her criteria perfectly. However, there was a problem – it was complicated to talk business with the man, for there was nothing that she could use to buy him over. He was wealthy enough to resist any of her offers.
Also, he was already irritated enough by her consistent approach to keeping him as a disciple. He would surely not approve of the whole idea of them getting married and must think that she must have gone mad from first pursuing him to be her disciple and now her husband. So, perhaps the man was not an appropriate candidate, after all. But who else could she possibly find? She was troubled.
She spent the next two days looking for a candidate, but could not find any. It was now time for her to pay her dues by accompanying Di Fuyi into the Devil Kingdom.The place where they agreed to meet was in the closest city to the entrance of the Devil Kingdom.
The devil aura in the kingdom was powerful and would be harmful to anyone who was not a part of the Devil Kingdom. As an outsider, one must obtain a special kind of material, known as the Devil Resisting Herb, to protect themselves from the devil aura.
Nevertheless, since Gu Xijiu was the creator of the universe, she was born with an extraordinary physique that was immune to the devil aura and did not need the herb. Di Fuyi was different from her, so he would still need it. Hence, it hardly surprised her that he chose to meet in the city.
