The Scene Had To Be Recreated
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Was she pregnant with the boy already? If she were pregnant, then the two were certainly sleeping together very closely last night. Could the proximity have forced his soul to be absorbed into the fetus?
Would he be the same after she gave birth to him?
Perhaps, it was more likely that he would not remember anything.
In her head, she was entertaining all sorts of blind and disorderly conjectures that were now bottled up inside her. Feeling overwhelmed, she finally decided to share her thoughts.
Di Fuyi examined her pulse at once. His medical abilities were more or less on par with hers, but he had a much greater spiritual power at the moment, so his examinations would be more accurate.
“You are not pregnant,” he confidently concluded.
Gu Xijiu was relieved for a moment but soon became even more perplexed.
“Xijiu, tell me everything that happened last night between you and the boy.”
Di Fuyi still had a gut feeling that something was missing.
Without wasting any time, Gu Xijiu told him everything that she could remember.
As far as Di Fuyi understood, the boy actually had the mentality of an adult even though his body was restricted to the size of a toddler. Therefore, he knew that the boy would not insist on sleeping with his mother if there was nothing going on.
Di Fuyi decided to test Di Hao’s spiritual power, and the result supported his speculation.
Di Hao’s spiritual power was severely drained. It seemed that he had performed some sort of physically demanding spell. What had he done?
Di Fuyi then turned his attention to Gu Xijiu and saw the dark pouches under her eyes. He asked, “Did you not sleep well last night?”
“I slept very well. I have never slept so well in a long while,” she said. She knew that her sleep last night was deepened into a long and undisturbed one.
Nevertheless, she still felt tired, even though she had a good sleep. Although she could not recall the specifics, she knew that she had a long, long dream throughout the night, but there was nothing she could remember as soon as she woke up.
Di Fuyi pulled her hand over and said, “Let me have a look.”
By this time, Gu Xijiu knew that Di Fuyi already had some clues about what might have happened, so she agreed to let him continue his examinations.
A moment later, Di Fuyi let go of her hand and frowned as he processed the results.
He could tell that Di Hao had used some sort of spell that allowed him to read Gu Xijiu’s memory, but it was not a simple memory extraction. The spell was much more powerful than that.
It was his first time encountering such a spell, but he felt something strangely familiar about it like he had once studied the same spell before. It must be a skill that was especially for the master of the heavenly law.
The spell required the purest power of one’s soul, which would cause his soul to leave his physical body while the spell was ongoing.
In order for him to understand the entire incident, the scene had to be recreated.
Therefore, Di Fuyi asked Gu Xijiu to lie down on the bed again. As for him, he adjusted his body size to that of a toddler, just like Di Hao. He climbed onto the bed and lay by her side, where Di Hao pretended to sleep last night, which was right beside Gu Xijiu. Then, he was mimicking Di Hao’s gestures and expressions.
Gu Xijiu quietly followed.
When Di Hao lay by her side, all she could feel was a rush of maternal love.
It did not feel quite the same next to Di Fuyi.
She would pinch Di Fuyi’s adorable face right now if they were not in a rush to search for their child.
“Xijiu, take a rest as you did before. It is all right if you cannot fall asleep, as long as you control your breathing and stay focused.”
Gu Xijiu did as told. Soon, she could feel a stream of power flowing in her body. Some fragments of her memory were about to be extracted.
Shocked, she opened her eyes to stop the extraction. “Are you reading my memory?”
Di Fuyi shook his head and whispered to himself, “No, that’s not what I am doing.”
Gu Xijiu remained confused.
Perhaps, no matter what Di Fuyi performed on her, she would always be alert.
Finally, Di Fuyi was reminded of a very strange method, so he put it to use. It did not take long for Gu Xijiu to fall into a deep sleep under this spell.
In her mind, she felt as if she had fallen into a dream.
Nevertheless, Di Fuyi stopped using the spell before she had the time to figure out her dreams. “Hao Er’s consciousness has collided with the candle dragon’s Dream Entering spell. That is how he was taken away,” he concluded.
Furious, Gu Xijiu asked, “Is Fan Qianshi behind this?”
Fan Qianshi was the only one known to own a candle dragon.
