“My apprentice has not lived up to my expectations. I assigned this matter to him,but I did not expect that he would get drunk every day and not even get up when I tried to wake him…”
Her words were polite, but they were also somewhat formal, creating a sort of distance between her and Di Fuyi.
Di Fuyi did not drink her wine but swirled the glass in his hand. “What were you doing?Are you not even bothered about your own wedding?”
Gu Xijiu was stunned by his frank reply. She was swamped over the past ten days, trying to arrange the starry array in a specific position. It was a very time-consuming and labor-intensive task. In fact, she had not left the place for ten days and only finished it today.
After she came out, she saw a significant change in the Tianyin Valley. Every inch of it from the hall to the small wedding flowers were all lovely and fascinating. She thought that her apprentice finally got down to work and was delighted in her heart.
She did expect to learn from Wu Qianyan that Fan Qianshi had not been taken care of all these things like he was supposed to do. He was drunk every single day and would usually go out and not come back for a few days. Even when he returned, he would sleep for a day or two.
When Gu Xijiu went to the Tianyin Valley, Fan Qianshi was out drinking again, so she could not find him. It was then that she learned that all thearrangements in the Tianyin Valley were by Di Fuyi.
Gu Xiji pondered for a moment and felt that it was only appropriate that she should meet him and thank him for everything he did, so she used the directed audio spell to connect with Di Fuyi. And now, here they were in front of each other for the first time since the incident in the Devil Kingdom.
When Di Fuyi questioned her, she looked at him with her bright but ruthless eyes. “Fuyi, I had to deal with a few private matters. I don’t need to report everything I do to you, right?”
She probably felt that she was too ruthless, so she frowned and added, “You should know that this wedding is just a cover-up. It is not an actual celebration of love. You don’t need to make it too luxurious.”
The glass in Di Fuyi’s palm was spinning as he suddenly asked, “Ah Jiu, are you still angry with me?”
“Ah? “Gu Xijiu looked puzzled.
Di Fuyi took a deep breath and reminded her, “That night when I was with the young princess…”
Gu Xijiu laughed and quickly interrupted him, “Ah, you are talking about that incident. Rest assured, I know that you were trying to influence her father, Meng Liancheng, so you deliberately pretended to be good to her. I will not be angry about that.”
Di Fuyi’s facial expression changed slightly. He wanted to add something, but in the end, it became a question, “Not angry at all?”
Gu Xijiu raised her eyebrows. “Of course, this kind of thing is very common. What is there to be angry about? The trick you used had been used by Yin Jiusi on Meng Liuxiang before. It was just a matter of expediency. I understood it at the time, so I didn’t bother.”
Di Fuyi was choked, but suddenly, he laughed. “Divine Lord is being really understanding now! However,why did you ask to cancel our engagement that day? ”
“I was afraid of delaying you.”
“Then, why do you want to marry me now? ” His questions were getting sharper and sharper.
Gu Xijiu frowned slightly and sighed. “That was because of the situation… I couldn’t deny it in front of Qianshi… I am sorry…”
She finally felt apologetic as she looked at him. “I know that it is challenging for you to tolerate me. So why don’t we do this? After the wedding, I will try to arrange for a divorce and will not delay you for too long. In the meantime, if you have another sweetheart, you can date her quietly. I will close one eye and not interfere with you. After three years, you can officially marry again.”
