Gu Xijiu did not let him look. "It isn't hurt. You've only shattered that dagger." Her tone was light.
Di Fuyi loosened his breath. "That dagger wasn't good enough. Wait till I get back and craft one personally for youit'll be a hundred times better than that other one!"
Gu Xijiu did not speak. There are times where the importance of a blade does not lie in its quality, but what it symbolizes instead.
Gu Xijiu has always been rational and could barely understand Di Fuyi's moment of anxiety at that situation, so she did not want to suspect him anymore.
Even though she had not betrothed to him, it had not been easy for them to come to this stage. Gu Xijiu understood how much he loved and valued himself; yet, it was merely an understandinga bag of soreness had grown inside her heart.
However, compared to this bag of soreness, she was more concerned with another matter. "Were you once that princess's brother-in-law?"
Di Fuyi's fingers froze for a moment. He took a look at her, "You're concerned about this?"
What tripe is this!
Gu Xijiu was brazen in her speech. "If someone you didn't know popped out of nowhere and called you their sister-in-law, won't you be concerned?"
Di Fuyi was speechless.
He pondered for a moment before replying, "This affair is not what you think it is. I did not become her brother-in-law, as I was not engaged with her sister That was a misunderstanding that happened a few thousand years ago."
"A misunderstanding?" Gu Xijiu raised an eyebrow.
It was clear that Di Fuyi was concealing a secret. He sighed. "Xijiu, I've promised someone never to mention that incident again. Moreover, her sister had already passed away a few thousand years ago, there's no need for you to be envious of her."
It was now Gu Xijiu's turn to be speechless.
Di Fuyi put his hand on hers. "Alright. Darling, the carnival organized by the mermaids over here only occurs once a year. It's full of good stuff, and we took quite some effort to get herelet's not miss it!"
He pulled her up without even waiting for her response. "The reason I brought you here was to buy some things."
Gu Xijiu was a bit dispirited. "I don't think I have anything to buy."
Di Fuyi looked at her with a half smile. "The things that I want to buy are for a wedding. Are you sure you don't have anything to buy?"
Gu Xijiu's heart leaped.
She replied subconsciously, "I did not talk about marrying you at all" They haven't even had a formal engagement!
Di Fuyi pulled her over by force into his embrace and kissed her without further ado!
The kiss caused her heart to leap like lightning and overwhelmed her head. He spoke to her leisurely, "Why don't you try talking about not marrying me again?!"
With his breath enveloping her and his luscious kiss just now causing a short-circuit in her head, she replied boldly, "I don't want to marry you"
Before she could even finish her sentence, Di Fuyi released her and let her fall. She was taken aback by surprise and thought that she would land on the cold marble; it was against her expectations when she found out that she was lying on a mattress that was as soft as a cloud upon landing.
Di Fuyi pressed his body onto hers and held both of her hands above her head with one of his hands, while the fingers of his other hand raised the sleeve of her shirt. He had a somewhat devious smile playing on his lips.
"Darling, you are testing the limits of my patience"
He gently bit her lips with warm breath and danger in his eyes. "Darling, do you intend for me to obtain you right here and now?"
There were already significant physical differences between the two of them, not to mention the fact that Gu Xijiu's spiritual power was much lower than his. Therefore, when he boldly put her body under control, she could not push him away unless she snuck up on him.
