It had been days since she last tasted some wine, so she became immediately hooked to the delicious scent. With a quick gulp, she downed another mouthful of wine. The taste still lingered on the tip of her tongue as she spoke, “It tastes quite mild.” It seems she actually preferred a stronger wine.
“Then, this is the wine for you. The after-taste is very strong,” Di Fuyi smilingly answered as he passed her another bottle.
They sat across the table and started drinking delightfully. Gu Xijiu had never thought that they could live in peace with one another someday. His attitude of late had become less provoking. There was less arguing and more caring for one another. In fact, whenever he had the time, he would even take her out for a walk around the Devil Kingdom.
He reasoned that they needed to show their affection publicly to make it more convincing. Contrary to what she expected, Gu Xijiu actually found those days quite enjoyable. Sometimes, she wished that it would never end.
Besides enjoying good food and walks around the Devil Kingdom, Gu Xijiu was also collecting spiritual stones around the place.Passerbys would typically only admire the clarity of the stones. However, Gu Xijiu was perhaps one of the few people who knewthat the stones were essential elements that provided spiritual energy to the heavens and earth. Furthermore, these stones were the sole element required on a Star Formation. Soon, she would have to teach Fan Qianshi the real technique to build a proper and stable formation. In order to fully understand the technique of a star formation, he had to put his heart at ease without the slightest distraction; otherwise, the entire endeavor would fail.
Over the past few days, Di Fuyi was quite occupied with his own schedule. So whenever he was busy, Gu Xijiu would head out to collect the spiritual stones on her own. It was a rather exhausting process, so she could only collect 30 pieces at a time. Nevertheless, she estimated that she only needed a total of 360 pieces, so there was no rush.
They had been in the Devil Kingdom for almost a fortnight now, and those were fruitful days. For the first time, she actually felt contented and fulfilled. Di Fuyi would make an effort to come back and have a meal with her during lunch. Sometimes, they would have the meal in their room, and other times in a restaurant. Every outing together was a great way to get more people aware of their relationship. Gu Xijiu was impressed by Di Fuyi’s professionalism in the matter. Everything that he did was done with a proper plan. She thought about all this while drinking wine with Di Fuyi.
Getting tipsy was the best part about drinking. Satisfied, Gu Xijiu could already feel the wine in her head. She then threw the voice-recording amulet to him and said, “Here, a surprise for you.”
Di Fuyi switched it on and listened to everything on the tape. “Did you venture into the regent’s residence all alone? His place is heavily guarded with many array formations.”
With a smile, Gu Xijiu proudly replied, “There is nothing that can stop me from entering. There is also no place that I cannot go. Don’t worry. I went in and out unnoticed. Your plan still remains intact.”
“I am not worried about my plan. I am worried about your safety.”
Gu Xijiu laughed out loud. “You are being silly. You should also know that I am the Divine Lord. Do you really think that I am that fragile? Moreover, you have done a great deal for me, so I really should repay your kindness.”
She was right. Gu Xijiu was the Divine Lord, after all. She was not like any other woman. In fact, she was even more powerful than him. He was indeed, over-worried. Perhaps he had seen her at her worst times, thus giving him an idea to be protective of her. He felt an intuitive need to make sure that she was safe.
Her blushing cheeks seemed to have caught his attention at this time. The look in her eyes was a little blank as she was probably tipsy. Nevertheless, Di Fuyi found it extremely captivating.
All of a sudden, he could feel a rush of blood in his chest, so he quickly looked away. “I do not need any form of repayment. All right, the wine will get a little stronger over time. You should stay here and rest.”
Apparently, Gu Xijiu was very obedient when she was tipsy this time.
