The Wedding 4
“Nevertheless, if the National Master did not benefit from it, he surely wouldn’t agree to it. A real man should not openly attach themselves to just one woman.”
“The Divine Lord is the god of the six realms. If she were to get attached, she would surely marry a husband. Anyway, this is also good for us. As the husband of Divine Lord, no one would dare to provoke National Master Di anymore. His identity is more honorable now, and it is just a matter of time for him to rule the six realms. A man can always be flexible. It doesn’t matter to compromise a little bit to achieve a bigger goal.”
“Tsk… After all his efforts, it seems that the National Master is going to rely on his wife’s status. As you said, it is not that noble. Hmmph! I will never do this if it happened to me. I would rather have nothing in my life than to have to rely on my wife for my success. I would rather get an obedient wife and a few more beautiful concubines. That is my greatest joy of life.”
“Shhh… Lower down your voice, please. This is Divine Lord… she is different from other women.”
These people’s voices were not very high, but Gu Xijiu was very good at hearing, and naturally, she heard all of their conversations. She frowned slightly when someone alerted them to it.
Then, her fingertips moved, and a touch of pale light emerged from the car. Those people who were gossiping suddenly felt an itch on their throats, and soon, they realized that they could not open their mouth or even utter a word.
They were certainly shocked by the itchiness and discomfort. It was so bad to the point where they felt like pulling their tongues out to scratch their throats. Even then, their mouth could not be opened and was tightly sealed.
All of them looked rather crazy trying to figure out how to open their mouth and scratch the inside of their throat. The people in the crowd thought they were mad, so they stayed far away from them.
This little chaos naturally did not affect the team at all. They were still moving forward to Di Fuyi’s house.
Gu Xijiu put her hand back down inside the vehicle. These people would feel the itch for three days and would not be able to sleep, drink, or eat during that time. It was just a small punishment for them so that they would learn their lesson.
She did not treat these people’s words as an insult to her, but she definitely reflected on what they said. Suddenly, she realized that Di Fuyi paid a higher price for this show. He actually did not need to get married to her, and he could still rule the six realms on his own. It was just a matter of time. However, because of the wedding, he was being described as a man who relied on his wife. This reputation might never disappear in his lifetime.
If she knew this earlier… It seemed that she was not considerate enough in their arrangement. She had to try to remedy it in the future.
Soon, Gu Xijiu and her team arrived at the front of the Tianxing Palace. Compared with the lively atmosphere in the Tianyin Valley, this place was quite deserted. The door was closed, and only two or three doormen guarded the entrance.
There were some worries in Gu Xijiu’s heart when she saw the scene. Over the past few days, Di Fuyi was definitely mad with her, and she did not contact him to sort out the issues they had. Would he regret getting married to her now?!
She got out of the car, and the doorman greeted and saluted her. “Divine Lord.”
“Where is your master?”
“Master… Master… Divine Lord, please come in first. My master will come out soon.”
Gu Xijiu secretly heaved a sigh of relief. As long as he was in the house and did not escape from the wedding, it was all right. She left the team outside as she stepped into the palace.
It was the first time she entered the Tianxing Palace. She found the decorations inside quite festive with a big red double-happiness word hung inside. Red silks were hung everywhere as a sign of prosperity.
Gu Xijiu was taken into the main hall by the housekeeper in the house. This hall had been elegantly arranged. A peony flower shaped in the word “Xi” was hung in the middle with red pearls hanging on the ceiling. The decoration was flawless and powerful. Di Fuyi actually did it himself. Apparently, the arrangement here was more interesting than in the Tianyin Valley.
