Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
According to the pink candle dragon, as soon as the lady made an appearance, the surrounding temperature would immediately plummet to absolute zero. Also, it would not take long before one frosted up and turn into ice.
Honestly, at the time, Gu Xijiu thought that the situation would not be as bad as what it had described.
She then took a look at the lady, who was still standing there with effortless grace. She seemed a bit preoccupied as she stared at Gu Xijiu blankly. The look in her eyes was so profound that it somehow felt like a bottomless void.
“Do you have any wine?” The lady suddenly asked.
Before Gu Xijiu could answer, Fan Qianshi was already speaking out loud on her behalf, “Yes.”
He then threw the woman a bottle of sour plum wine and proudly said, “Try this one. I am sure you will like it.”
The lady took the wine and sniffed the heavy aroma that the wine exuded. However, she did not seem very impressed.
Fan Qianshi was a little nervous, for he was suddenly not sure if she was going to like it. He knew that it was Gu Xijiu’s current favorite wine, but perhaps he was mistaken.
Curious, the lady finally took a sip. “Damn it! How dare you lie to me!?” She exclaimed furiously.
She then struck him with a hit and blew a severe snowstorm toward him.
Fan Qianshi was almost critically injured. The cold was not to be underestimated. He felt like his entire body was submerged in an ice pool at that point. In order to stay alive, he had to use all of his spiritual power to resist the cold. “Master, this really is your favorite wine,” he said while trembling in the cold.
He could not believe that it was wrong!
“Not this wine.” The lady held the bottleneck in a tight grasp. She seemed rather disappointed. “Not this one,” she repeated.
Which wine did she want?
Fan Qianshi had no idea at all. He looked at Gu Xijiu for an answer. “Isn’t the wine your favorite?”
Puzzled, Gu Xijiu did not understand why her answer even mattered at all. She did not feel that she was associated with the lady in white.
Their preferences could not possibly be the same, though they shared the same appearance.
Even twins could have completely different tastes and preferences.
“Mother, isn’t that your favorite wine?” Di Hao asked in a low tone.
Meanwhile, the surrounding temperature started to drop again. Without her favorite wine, it seemed that the entire world would be doomed in extreme cold.
Gu Xijiu stopped to think for a moment. Soon, she took out a bottle of wine, intricately carved with unsophisticated and straightforward patterns. Di Hao could immediately tell that it was his father’s work of art.
“My favorite wine is actually the one that your father personally brews, but the ingredients are scarce, so he did not produce a lot of it. I will only take a sip whenever I crave for it,” Gu Xijiu explained.
She took a quick look at the lady and caught her lingering eyes on the bottle. “Give it to me!”
Gu Xijiu was reluctant to give it away, but she did not have much choice. She had strong feelings of attachment for the wine, for it was something that Di Fuyi personally made for her. However, in the current circumstances, she could only do as told.
She then passed the bottle to her, with a slight reminder. “Please give it back to me if you do not like it. It is all I have left.”
The lady took the bottle over and opened the cork right away. The air was immediately filled with a captivating scent of wine.
Excitedly, the lady held the bottle up with trembling hands and took a careful sip. She paused to taste it before taking another sip.
They all held their breath as they watched her. Soon, they were relieved by the fact that she was actually enjoying the wine.
Fan Qianshi did not know what to feel, for he never thought that the wicked woman was only craving for wine. She was plagued by her irrevocable obsession with Di Fuyi’s wine.
At that moment, Fan Qianshi’s heart was quickly filled with utter bitterness.
The lady looked like an addict as she took one sip after another to fulfill her satisfaction.
Soon, the surrounding started to rise, and the warmth of spring had come to replace the extreme miserable cold.
Relieved, they were glad that they finally had a cure for the God of Demon’s obsession for wine. Perhaps the wizardry barrier could finally be removed, and they could leave this bloody place.
“What a great wine!” The lady sighed in delight. Abruptly, she waved her sleeves in the air as the pink candle dragon let out a long, high-pitched cry.
After so many years, the gate was finally open for the first time. A giant whirlpool suddenly came into view, and Gu Xijiu was taken away by the turbulence.
Gu Xijiu honestly thought that the whirlpool would lead her all the way out of the desert. She was looking forward to seeing the Flying Serpent.
However, she was trapped in the turbulence for quite some time before she landed in another part of the world where she had never been.
