"Miss Gu... Miss Gu…"
"Miss Gu, please wake up…"
"Miss Gu, today is your wedding day with The Great Lord. You have to wake up to prepare in advance. Please, wake up. It's time to get up."
Four servants had shown up inside Gu Xijiu's bedroom. They had brought along the crown and gown to help Gu Xijiu dress up. However, Gu Xijiu had been sleeping very soundly and could not be awakened regardless of how they called her name.
The four servants looked at each other and wondered what was wrong with Miss Gu. Had she fainted?
They had no idea, and so they quickly sent someone to go and invite Elder Long.
Long Fan quickly headed to Gu Xijiu's room, and Mo Zhao accompanied him.
The four servants were slightly stunned. According to their tradition, the bride was not supposed to be seen by the groom until she was dressed up. However, since The Great Lord had arrived, they did not dare to comment.
Both of them stood beside the bed and saw that Gu Xijiu was sleeping. Her face was blushed, and her breathing was calm. It seemed like she was in a deep sleep.
Mo Zhao glanced at Long Fan just as he was about to raise his hand to shake her, and so he took a step back and left the area.
Mo Zhao frowned as he had called her name twice, but she did not respond. He held her hand and was about to use his spiritual power to wake her up. Unexpectedly, before his spiritual power was channeled, Gu Xijiu's body moved slightly and finally, she opened her eyes. Thankfully, she had finally woken up! All the maids were relieved.
Her eyeballs looked as lovely as a pair of black pearls. When she first woke up, she seemed to look confused. Both of them looked at each other for a while before Gu Xijiu said in surprise, "Brother Mo, what's wrong?"
Mo Zhao was relieved. Well, she was still his Gu Xijiu.
"Xijiu, why did you sleep so long? The servants failed to wake you up…" He gently asked.
Gu Xijiu blinked her eyes. "Have I been sleeping that long?"
Mo Zhao looked at her face again and again. She looked very healthy, and nothing seemed to be wrong with her except for the sweat that had formed on the tip of her nose.
However, he was still worried, so he called Long Fan to run a diagnosis on her. Long Fan shook his head after he had checked her pulse. "She is fine, and nothing is wrong with her. She was having a good sleep. It is quite normal for her to have trouble waking up." He then glanced at the four servants. "Besides, since The Great Lord has issued an order that no one can touch Gu Xijiu, they could only try waking her up by calling her name which was less effective."
Mo Zhao touched Gu Xijiu's head as he looked into her eyes. "Xijiu, today is our wedding. Are you happy?"
Gu Xijiu blushed as she faced downwards and did not answer his question. She looked like a shy little girl.
It was rare to see her with this look. Mo Zhao was a bit excited, so he went close to her ears and whispered. "Dress up nicely. You must dress like the most beautiful bride ever known to man."
Gu Xijiu's ears turned red, and she shyly nodded her head. Mo Zhao was happy, and finally, he left in a good mood.
While he was leaving, he asked Long Fan to tag along with him to help decorate the wedding hall. The four servants helped Gu Xijiu to get ready and started dressing her up.
Gu Xijiu sat on a chair, and a mirror was placed in front of her. The four servants busied themselves around her.
An hour later, a beautiful and stunning bride had finally shown up.
