Lan Jingyi stared at Gu Xijiu and analyzed her from head to toe. She looked unconvinced. "I don't know what is so good about Miss Gu. You don't look good enough for my brother-in-law."
This girl spoke very bluntly, and so she often ended up hurting people's feelings. However, Gu Xijiu was able to catch the point of her sentence and asked, "Who is your sister?"
Lan Jingyi proudly, "My sister was the former ruler of the mermaids. She grew up together with my brother-in-law since we were young. She would still be alive if she had not sacrificed herself for my brother-in-law."
The information was somewhat shocking which made Gu Xijiu frown.
Di Fuyi had lived long enough, and she knew that he had been friends with Lan Yaoguang for 6,000 years. Hence, she knew that he had lived for more than 6,000 years. He had never talked about the history of his romance, and she had never questioned it either.
It seemed that Di Fuyi used to have an old lover during his childhood and she was the former ruler of the mermaids. She had sacrificed herself for him. It sounded like nothing short of a drama!
Lan Jingyi glanced at her again and spoke, "You are a real a beauty, but you are just a normal human and should not be able to live too long. Brother-in-lawhas been lonely for a long time, and since my sister is not back yet, he is probably trying to take revenge on her by falling in love with a human."
She circled Gu Xijiu, and suddenly she discovered something. "Hey, you look like my sister from the back. Perhaps brother-in-law had fallen in love with you because of this!"
Gu Xijiu was speechless.
Even though Gu Xijiu had a lot of questions in her mind, she did not want to allow this girl to comment on her again. "Most of the beauties in this world look very alike from the back. Some of us even have similar facial features, so it is not strange to discover that my back looks like your sister's. Nonetheless, I don't think you look like your sister so you don't have to worry that others would mistake me as your sister."
Lan Jingyi was speechless.
Gu Xijiu was trying to say that she was not beautiful enough. This was the most indescribable pain for Lan Jingyi.
She was the younger sister of Lan Yaoguang. She was also a great beauty, but when compared with her brother and older sister, she was considered ugly!
Everyone was amazed by her brother and sister, but look at her like a pirated copy of them. Never able to reach the same quality and standard.
Gu Xijiu's comment had pressed on a sensitive nerve. She looked angry! "You What did you say?"
Gu Xijiu smiled at her and replied, "Don't you understand me? Do you want me to repeat myself?"
Lan Jingyi was speechless. She finally realized that the lady in front of her was not a fool and did not let others push her around.
The reason why Gu Xijiu had not responded to her earlier was that she had been caught off guard when she received so many shocking revelations from Lan Jingyi.
Lan Jingyi was contemptuous of humans. In her eyes, human beings were just like planktons in the water. They were irrelevant and not even worth mentioning. She never expected that she would be humiliated by a little girl today.
Her face was pale, and she clenched her fists. She stepped forward as if she wanted to teach Gu Xijiu a lesson. However, she was stopped by the concubine. "Princess, please don't be angry. She was brought here by Mr. Huang, and she is an honored guest of the king. Please don't be rude to her."
