Nonetheless, the king of the mermaids was a gentleman. Even if he had lost interest in his concubines, he allowed them to stay in the palace to live a good life. However, he would never treat them as nicely as before.
Lan Yaoguang claimed himself as the greatest lover and never thought that he was melodramatic.
He once said before that the men on the continent often had three to four wives. Even though some of the men married only one wife, the time they spent with each other was just several decades.
Meanwhile, the love he showered upon each of his concubines was nearly a 1,000 years, so he felt that he was loyal enough.
The concubine that was currently accompanying Gu Xijiu was the one he most recently married, and they had been together for 200 years.
After all, Gu Xijiu was still human. In her mind, she thought that a lifelong relationship was very rare and precious. She wondered how love would be like for those people who could never get old or die.
In the human world, the lifespan of a relationship was even shorter. Some of the couples who loved each other very much could easily get bored with their partner after they had been married for many years. The passion and love would slowly dissipate and transform into family love. Some men liked a challenge so most of the time they would end up cheating on their wives and having an affair with other women.
As for these people with infinite life, it was not unusual to get bored after they had seen the same face for a thousand years.
The concubine was trying to express her sorrow to Gu Xijiu.
According to what she said, a regular mermaid could live for 10,000 years. She was now only 1,300 years old and was still in her youth. However, after she hadmarried Lan Yaoguang for only 200 years yet Lan Yaogung had stopped pampering her like before.
The concubine shared with Gu Xijiu about the tactics that Lan Yaoguang had used to win her heart. The tactics that he used could easily make any girl fall for him. For instance, he would sing in front of her seashell house and dance for her in public. He would give her all kinds of precious gifts. He even saved her when she was in danger, and he almost sacrificed his beautiful face.
The concubine finally fell in love with Lan Yaoguang after seeing that he had put in so much effort to woo her. Even though she was the prime minister's daughter, she willingly married him as his seventh concubine.
Gu Xijiu did not expect to find out so much from a visit to the garden. After the concubine had finished her story, she said, "Miss Gu, in fact, I envy you."
Gu Xijiu replied, "Why?"
The concubine exclaimed, "Humans have a very short life. I believe that you only possess a spiritual power of level six and a half, right? Even if you managed to train your spiritual power until level nine, you could only live for a thousand years. In that case, you will only be by Mr. Huang's side for a few hundred years. He would love you your whole life, and you don't have to experience the sorrow of falling out of love."
Gu Xijiu remained silent.
For a moment, she did not know how to reply to the concubine.
In fact, she had not thought that far. Once she fell in love with someone, she would love him to the fullest. If she did not love him anymore, she would not hesitate to let him go. No one knew how long their love would last.
Gu Xijiu herself could not guarantee how long her love would last. She did not seem like a loyal lover. Perhaps, she would be the one to lose interest first.
She only cared that she was currently in love, but she did not expect the love to last forever. Though she presently felt that she wanted to be with Di Fuyi forever, no one knew what would happen in the future.
She only knew that they loved each other now and she felt contented.
