“Am I not good enough? I… I like you so much…”
His clean clothes were full of dirt at the moment, and he looked like a lonely tramp.
Gu Xijiu looked down at him, and there was clear pain at the bottom of her eyes. After all, she taught him for so many years, so seeing him like this would inevitably affect her. She would be lying if she said she was not distressed. However, she should not give him any hope. She had to be cruel to free him of his unrequited love so that he could ultimately come back to his senses.
The pain he was going through was something that he needed to experience. Otherwise, he would never let go.
Under normal circumstances, a person suffering from unrequited love would turn their attention to their career. As for Fan Qianshi, she believed that his focus would soon shift to his practice.
With that in mind, Gu Xijiu turned and was about to teleport away, but the door of the wine cellar was suddenly opened, and three people sneaked in. These three people were dressed like the shopkeepers of the cellar. They saw Fan Qianshi and were furious and shocked. “No wonder our stock has been missing. We have a thief!”
“Hit him! Hit this little thief!”
The three men picked up three wooden sticks and smashed Fan Qianshi’s face!
Meanwhile, Fan Qianshi was so drunk that he simply could not defend himself. He got hit a few times on his face to the point where it turned reddish.
Gu Xijiu frowned. She pulled her fingers together as though she was about to do something, but in the end, she held herself back. It was good for him to face the consequences of his actions since he had stolen a lot of wine from the shop. She should let him have a lesson.
Anyway, Gu Xijiu thought that these people would throw him out after a few hits, but she did not expect that they would endlessly hit him with the sticks. She watched Fan Qianshi get whacked 30 to 40 times until his nose and face were obviously swollen. What was worse was that these people did not seem like they were going to stop. One of them even drew out a knife to cut him and feed him to the dog.
This was clearly too much! Therefore, Gu Xijiu pinched a spell in her fingers and pointed at Fan Qianshi. There was a colorless and transparent cover that suddenly appeared over his body. The man with the knife did not see it went forward to cut Fan Qianshi’s neck. However, as she attempted to cut Fan Qianshi, the invisible barrier responded, and he was thrown to the back of the room, almost cutting himself in the face.
He was shocked and quickly threw away his knife. “There is a ghost!”
The invisible barrier also repelled the sticks that the other people had used to hit Fan Qianshi. Quickly, all of the people in the roomgrew suspicious. They looked at each other and did not dare to hit him again. Instead, they lifted Fan Qianshi and threw him into the mud on the street.
When they went back to the wine cellar and counted the jars, they accidentally found a few silvers on the ground, enough to pay for the wine stolen by Fan Qianshi. They groaned and picked up the silvers, and later regretted what they did to the man. It seemed that this drunk man was not trying to eat a free meal. He had left a few pieces of silver coins as payment.
The wind on the street was bleak, and Fan Qianshi was lying in leeches. He had no intention to wake up. He was aware of the pain on his body and face despite his drunken state. He spoke softly, “Master, don’t abandon me… ”
“Master, even if you hit me, please don’t leave me…”
“Master, I am hurt…”
Gu Xijiu’s fingers were trembling slightly at this point. She was angry but also felt sorry for the poor guy.
Soon, a group of people around the street circled him and pointed at him; someone actually recognized him. “Hey, is he… Is he the principal disciple of the Divine Lord of the Tianyin Valley?”
Gu Xijiu was speechless.
No matter how angry she was, she still did not want her apprentice to lose his face here. But just when she was about to remove him secretly, there was a gust of wind around the grounds.
