“National Master, you are so thoughtful for bringing these snacks along. They are so delicious!”
“Ah, there is also wine! This is awesome!”
The dramatic expressions went on and on.
It was a lot of noise. With a sigh, Gu Xijiu cast a spell to make the barrier soundproof. Finally, peace returned, but it did not take long for her to become distracted by the smell of good food.
All of a sudden, Gu Xijiu opened her eyes widely. She could tell from the smell of the food that it was her favorite cookie made with of passion fruit. Most importantly, it was from Restaurant Baoyan.
Restaurant Baoyan was very well known for its excellent cookies. One try was enough for Gu Xijiu to become hooked. However, the number of cookies available was very limited. Only a small amount was produced each day. There was no guarantee that one could buy the cookies even if they joined the queue early.
Di Fuyi once promised that he would buy her some cookies from there. But when he finally bought them, but they were not for her!Gu Xijiu took a quick look and saw the cookies that were placed neatly before them as the duo enjoyed their glasses of wine.
Since she could only see Di Fuyi’s back, there was no way she could see his expression. But from the look of the little princess’s happy face, she seemed to be genuinely having a great time.
All of a sudden, the little princess caught Gu Xijiu’s curious eyes, so she turned around and said something to Di Fuyi. Thanks for the soundproof wizardry barrier, Gu Xijiucould not hear anything she said, but she could read her lips. “We cannot finish these snacks, anyway. Should we send your fiancée a few pieces?”
Di Fuyi said something in return, which prompted the little princess to reply, “Nevermind, then.”
Even without hearing what Di Fuyi said, Gu Xijiu already knew that he would reject the idea. Frankly, she was quite disappointed by it. As her fiancé, it was not appropriate for him to just leave her aside and spend his time with someone else.
Perhaps, he was reluctant to keep the show going. But if that were the case, should the wedding be carried on as planned? Gu Xijiu thought that it might make sense for her to start looking for someone else.
Fortunately, the news about her wedding was not widespread. Otherwise, she would be so embarrassed if no groom showed up at the wedding. Imagine if the creator of the universe were to stand there alone and marry no one!
In an attempt to resolve the matter quickly, she wondered if Yin Jiusi would agree to her request again, but she suspected that he would not entertain it.Yin Jiusi had been avoiding her these days, so it was very unlikely that he would put himself in such a vulnerable situation with her again.As it was rather difficult to find a suitable candidate, Gu Xijiu could not help but feel annoyed at the sudden change.
She took another look at the cookies and saw that only a few pieces remained. Apparently, the little princess had savored almost everything. Frustrated, Gu Xijiu closed her eyes and sighed.
Her love for food was very apparent, especially when the food was fresh. There was always some food in her bag, but not much was left this time since she had been away for so long. After a long day of harvesting the spiritual stones, she had actually finished what was left.
Ever since she caught a whiff of the smell of the cookies, her stomach had been rumbling a little. Nevertheless, her exhaustion soon overcame her hunger.She closed her eyes and sealed the barrier from the scent as well. When there was no distraction, she soon fell asleep.
After resting for some time, Gu Xijiu suddenly woke up and realized that the moon was still well lit, along with many stars that twinkled across the entire night sky. There was no one there at the other end of the hill; they were long gone. There was only midnight serenity that surrounded the hill.
