Gu Xijiu smiled and said, "Humans have countless missions to complete in their lifetime, and the same goes for me even if I am a lady. My life should not befilledonly with romance, and I should not make romance the only important thing in my life either. How boring would that be? Don't you agree? The world is such a vast place. We should go and explore it."
The concubine had not expected Gu Xijiu to take this matter so lightly. She sighed and responded, "It seems like you have not truly fallen in love with Mr. Huang. If you have fallen in love with him, you will find it suffering. Just imagine that after a century, he will still exist in this world, but he will be meeting other ladies. He will love and pamper them and ultimately marry one of them. When you think of it this way, you would feel jealous."
Gu Xijiu felt that the concubine was overthinking things. No one knew what was going to happen after a century. Her physical body might no longer exist, but her soul was supposed to be imperishable. Di Fuyi would probably make her a new body, and she could still stay with him.
If her soul perished by mistake, then she would not have any consciousness. If it ever happened, regardless of who he loved, it would not have any impact on her as she would not have any emotions.
Gu Xijiu felt that the concubine had wasted her time and effort in trying to study an insignificant problem. She was just like a billionaire who had just earned an enormous amount of money, but instead of starting to enjoy life, she was worried and upset that no one would inherit her assets.
Gu Xijiu coughed to clear her throat. She tried explaining and gave the concubine a lesson based on her opinions.
After her sharing, the concubine was stunned and speechless. She was a soft and attached person. Thus she found it confusing to understand Gu Xijiu's way of thinking. However, she did not argue back as she did not want to offend Gu Xijiu. A person who was standing not far away from them interrupted their conversation and said, "This lady has a clear mind. It is the first time that I have heard of such an opinion."
Gu Xijiu raised her head and saw a lady in green coming out from a dense forest not too far away. The lady was a mermaid as well, and she looked very alike to Lan Yaoguang.
Unfortunately, her features were not as flirtatious as Lan Yaoguang's. The lady had thicker eyebrows and a more prominent pair of lips as compared to Lan Yaoguang. She also had a couple of big bright eyes. If she were not to be compared with Lan Yaoguang, she would be considered a beauty.
However, after Gu Xijiu had met Lan Yaoguang before and had witnessed his beauty, she was not stunned by the this young lady's beauty.
The young lady was wearing a green dress. When she walked towards them, she looked like lettuce that was blooming in spring. She was related to Lan Yaoguang, but Gu Xijiu was unsure as to whether she was his sister or daughter. Therefore, she remained silent.
"Jingyi, finally you are back. Your brother kept talking about you lately." The concubine was the first one to speak.
"What did he say about me? Does he still want to get a husband for me? I don't want one! I am not interested if it is not someone like my brother-in-law." Lan Jingyi grunted.
Did she like her brother-in-law?
The concubine sighed softly. "Jingyi, Mr. Huang already has Miss Gu as his fianc, and they will be getting married very soon. I think you'd better stop loving him for now."
Gu Xijiu was stunned.
The brother-in-law they were talking about was
"Sister-in-law, I know that I have no future with brother-in-law. However, I still like him"
