As she tried to get up, she accidentally brushed her head against his hand, and unfortunately, she started swaying and fell right into Di Fuyi’s arms!
For a moment, Gu Xijiu lay helplessly in his embrace. She shook her head real quick before looking up and staring at him.
Their eyes met, and he looked at her with an intense gaze. It was clear that he had become captivated. As they continued to stare into each other’s eyes, it was as though they were looking into each other’s souls.
At this point, Gu Xijiu’s breath smelled of the wine that they had shared coupled with a small fraction of her own sweet scent. Di Fuyi could feel the blood rushing through his head, reminding him of a strong urge that led to the most honest bodily reaction of a man. In an instant, he felt the need to take her to the bed.
“Little Fuyi, you are so good looking,” Gu Xijiu commented while stroking his face with both her hands.
The sudden gesture dumbfounded Di Fuyi. Delighted, he then returned the comment with a smile and said, “You are welcome to take a few more looks.”
“Your face will surely attract a lot of women. I wish I could put a mask on your face so that no one else gets to see it.” Gu Xijiu slowly traced his supple skin with her fingers. Her soft hand slowly caressed his cheek, sending tickles down his spine.
Di Fuyi acknowledged her concern with a bright smile. “From now on, I will wear a mask in public. You are the only one who gets to see my face, all right?”
“Great!” Gu Xijiu nodded at the suggestion. “Unnecessary attention only brings trouble.”
“I think so, too. All right, I have decided to wear a mask from now on and take it off only when I am home.”
It seemed that the high alcohol level in her body was finally taking over her head. Gu Xijiu’s body went weak, and she appeared to be completely learning on him now. Suddenly, he could hear her mumbling to herself, “Why is the world spinning? The ground has become so soft. Is there anothercatastrophe?”
Surprised by her sudden remark, Di Fuyi knew it was time to put her to bed. “The world is not spinning. You are drunk.”
He carried her onto the bed and tucked her nicely into the comfortable sheets. However, she felt that it was too warm and immediately kicked the sheets away. Di Fuyi tried to put the sheets back on her a few times, but she kicked the sheets away just the same.
The Devil Kingdom’s weather was usually quite chilly, so he needed to make sure that she was warm enough. He put the sheets on for the last time and cast a spell to make her stay comfy. Finally, she stopped moving and drifted into slumber right away.
After sending her to bed, Di Fuyi felt the need to get a refreshing drink.He poured out a cup of water and downed it in one shot. Soon, he felt better. For the past couple of days, both of them have been sharing the same room but slept on different beds.
He did not agree to split the beds because he was trying to behave like a gentleman. In fact, he only agreed to it because he did not want to taint her name. He was a man who sought perfection and wanted to keep the most romantic part of their relationship for their wedding night.
Besides, it was not their first time sharing a room. They used to stay together in the same icehouse back in the glacier, but it was nothing more than sharing a space for meditation. However, something had changed over the past couple of days. Di Fuyi was feeling something more for her. Sometimes, he would spend his sleepless night looking at the woman who was soundly asleep on the other bed, immersing himself in the sweet scent of hers.
Watching her sleeping had sparked some excitement in his heart. Seeing how things were going now, he made a hiss and decided that he had to leave. He walked out of the room and requested for some soup to sober up.
Although the aftereffect was strong, the wine was a quality one. Therefore, getting drunk from the wine would not do any harm to Gu Xijiu’s body. Di Fuyi wanted for her to rest well, so he only returned two hours later to check on her.
