The Wedding 3
The flat ground suddenly burst into a gust of wind, to the point where the crowd could hardly open their eyes and mouths. When the strong winds had passed, Fan Qianshi, who was on the ground, had disappeared.
Everyone was speechless except Gu Xijiu, who was relieved. She recognized that Wu Qianyan caused the gust of wind. It seemed that she arrived in time to save him.
Fan Qianshi did not return that night, and Wu Qianyan was nowhere to be seen either. Gu Xijiu initially thought that Wu Qianyan would bring the drunken Fan Qianshi back home. After all, tomorrow was her wedding day, and he was her only apprentice. It would not be appropriate if he did not show up.
Furthermore, since Wu Qianyan had a good pair of hands, Gu Xijiu expected her to help as she dressed up tomorrow for the big event.
Wu Qianyan had always been a sensible person, and she had no reason not to come back. However, as the sky grew brighter, the two people still did not show up. This made Gu Xijiu’s heart a little uneasy. She wondered what had happened to the two of them?!
Nevertheless, with their abilities, it was difficult for anyone in this world to challenge them. So they probably did not encounter any trouble. Perhaps, Wu Qianyan saw that Fan Qianshi was so drunk that she did not dare to bring him back, so she stayed outside with him and took care of him.
But even though Wu Qianyan did not come back last night, she still needed to get dressed for today. Therefore, she should be back soon, right?
Fortunately for Gu Xijiu, the matron of honor who was sent by Di Fuyi could help Gu Xijiu get dressed. Quickly, she put makeup on Gu Xijiu to get her ready for the wedding. The method that the matron had used definitely caused some pain to Gu Xijiu’s face. Nonetheless, she was born with natural beauty, so even though she was getting married, she only needed to put on a layer of thin powder.
When all was done, Gu Xijiu looked at herself in the mirror. She had a pair of beautiful eyes, a reddish face, and fair skin. When the flaming tassel was floating in front of her, it made her feel a bit strange. Although she felt that she looked very pretty, she knew that it was all fake.
She stopped for a moment to imagine how it would feel if it were true but then laughed at herself for thinking so. How could it be true? Both she and Di Fuyi had their own agenda. This was simply a mutually beneficial situation.
While still occupied in her thoughts, the matron of honor whispered to her, “Divine Lord, should you set off to pick up the groom now?”
Gu Xijiu was stunned for a moment. She just remembered that Di Fuyi would be married in her house this time, so she needed to pick him up personally. Quickly, she got up and strode out. “Let’s go!”
It was common to marry a bride, but it was rare to see a bride marry the groom, not to mention that it was the Divine Lord who married a husband. Therefore, at this time, it was not only her house that was full of guests but also along the streets all the way to the Tianxing Palace, where Di Fuyi stayed. The streets were filled with people who wanted to watch it live.
The team to pick up the groom marched on the street as the firecrackers were set off, and the music was played. Gu Xijiu opted not to take the sedan chair but sat in a large, luxurious car. After they reached the groom, he would sit together with her in the car.
She opened the curtain and looked outside of the car as it was traveling to Di Fuyi. Around 600 people were traveling with her to his place. This made the marching on the street look very grand as they were surrounded by people who admired the Divine Lord. Nonetheless, there were also a few inharmonious sounds that occasionally chimed in.
“I didn’t expect the National Master to marry the Divine Lord. It seems as if he is trying to exploit the power of the Divine Lord, which is why he compromised for this kind of marriage.”
“You are right. The National Master is a very proud man. There are a lot of powerful ladies who want to marry him, but he never even gave them a chance. Now, he is going to marry to the Divine Lord so openly. Perhaps, this was the condition set by Divine Lord to marry him.
