“Why can’t I drink during these few days?”
“You have a bad after-wine attitude, and we have to sleep in the same room. I am afraid that you might molest me if you get drunk.”
Gu Xijiu was speechless. What a douche! She would not be so unethical! However, she could not completely deny his statement as she did get drunk and lose control lately. She did not have much confidence in her ability to hold her liquor right now. Perhaps, when all was done, she would come back and look for a restaurant where no one knew her and drink her heart out.
Even though she could not drink, Gu Xijiu was not about to waste the opportunity to feast on the good food in the Devil Kingdom. In fact, she ate so much to the point where her stomach was slightly bloated. Thus, Di Fuyi brought her for a stroll on the street.
As expected, Di Fuyi was well known by the people here. Anything he did would naturally attract the attention of a crowd, but right now, he was even patiently taking care of a woman. When the two of them walked together, they could already hear whispers coming from every corner of the place. Some curious comics even had the audacity to tail them.
“Ah Jiu, how do you feel?” Di Fuyi asked her.
“I feel… I feel that I’m attracting a lot of hatred.” Gu Xijiu continued, “Your ability to attract women is definitely very powerful. I can sense that many women here want to kill me. Did you deliberately bring me here to attract their attention?”
“Are you jealous of the other women?”
“Young man, you have overthought. I just think it’s dangerous to be your date, especially when so many people are clearly after you. Didn’t you notice the princess’s reaction? When you left with me, she stared at me as if she wanted to swallow me up.” In fact, Gu Xijiu could subconsciously feel a chill at her back.
Di Fuyi gave her a rather confused look. “You are the Great Deity! Are you afraid of her?”
Of course, Gu Xijiu did not care about her. She just thought that it was unnecessary trouble.
Di Fuyi coldly continued, “I am acting as your fake husband; in fact, it is also very risky. Can you imagine once your precious apprentice figures out about our relationship? I’m afraid he might have the intention to rip out my heart!”
Speaking of which, Gu Xijiu felt somewhat guilty when she was reminded of the price Di Fuyi had to pay to play along with her request. She cleared her throat and replied, “I didn’t look for you at first. I wanted to let Yin Jiusi do it, but you…”
“Yin Jiusi’s ability is suited as the future king of the devil world. His ability is limited. If your apprentice decides to take him down, do you think he can escape?”
Gu Xijiu remained silent. She had actually considered this before and even thought about a backup plan. She knew was that Fan Qianshi would not dare to harm Yin Jiusi while she was still alive. So, just when she was going to immortalize, she would explain the truth to Fan Qianshi before she dissipated, and then force Fan Qianshi to swear that he would not do something unfavorable to Yin Jiusi.
The promise would be binding, so it was very unlikely that he would go against it.Besides, once Fan Qianshi knew the truth, he should know that it was not Yin Jiusi’s fault. At this point, he would not risk his life to go against a binding covenant.
Nevertheless, she could not tell Di Fuyi about her plan. But, she was actually curious about one thing, “Did you volunteer yourself for this task so that Yin Jiusi would be protected?”
Di Fuyi choked for a moment. Then, he looked at her and smiled. “Do you really think so?”
Gu Xijiu sighed. “You don’t even want to be my apprentice and have continuously asked me to set you free. Doesn’t that mean that you don’t want to have any relationship with me? However, this time, you suddenly took on this troublesome task and have even played along with everything. I can’t think of the reason why you would endeavor to do so.”
Di Fuyi silently stared at her for a moment. She was looking at him too, and at that moment, he realized that her eyes were bright and calm. Apparently, she really thought so.
He decided to respond half-jokingly, “Maybe I really like you and don’t want to be your apprentice. Perhaps, I only want to be your husband?”
Gu Xijiu was stunned and subconsciously stared at him. “Are you serious?”
“I said maybe; so, it may be true.”
