Gu Xijiu did not want to cast him away using self-defense techniques. Their positions were set. Gu Xijiu could even sense the slightest change in his body; a specific part of his anatomy which was located right between both of her legs
That fiery warmth had heated both of their blood and veins. Gu Xijiu's face exploded with red, and she was found gasping lightly. She was not averse to a relationship with him, but to do so at this place... It's a goddamn restaurant!
Even though they were in a private dining room, the walls were not soundproofshe could even hear the murmurs of the other customers in the adjacent rooms.
"Get off of me!" Her breath was unstable.
"Then promise to marry me!" Di Fuyi did not let go nor get off of her.
Gu Xijiu surrendered. "Alright, I'll marry you. I'll marry" She bit her teeth. "Hey, you get up right now. It's a restaurant here. Are you planning on performing live-action erotica for everyone to hear?"
Before she could speak again, she felt a coldness on her finger. Something was put on it. Gu Xijiu lowered her head and saw a ring on her finger; it was a ring inlaid with ruby.
Rubies were already quite rare, so it was certainly more than rare for a ruby to have such a perfect shape and high purity.
The ruby was in the shape of a heart with innumerable facets; the light of the candle shone on it like the sunlight leaping off the surface of a lake. It was dazzling beautiful and sublime beyond comprehension.
Gu Xijiu's heart skipped a beat. She looked at the ring then at him again. "You are?"
"Didn't you say before that back in your time engagements needed a wedding ring and that the woman would agree to the proposal if she accepted the ring?" Di Fuyi held her hand. "The size of this ring is most suitable for you. Since you didn't take it off, does that mean that you've agreed to my proposal?"
Gu Xijiu, "..."
What an extraordinary way to propose!
It was as though he was coaxing a child. Gu Xijiu thought it funny and felt a warmth in her heart. She stretched her finger and took a look at the ring. She asked him, "But won't this ring be like the love bracelet that cannot be removed?"
"Of course not, you can remove it anytime you want." Di Fuyi pulled her over into his embrace. "This ring also has the function of exorcism. Once any demonish being walks within five meters of you, this ring will automatically alarm you. By then you could choose to fight or flight, and thus be safer. This is much safer than the love bracelet. "
Maybe it was to recompense for her grievances, but Di Fuyi bought a lot of things for her during the carnival. Each item was exorbitant, with the prices of some even comparable to cities.
For instance, there was the rainbow bracelet shining with all seven colors with its prismatic patterns that was indeed much more beautiful than the Firmament Stone.
There was also the kyanite bracelet. Though at first glance it resembled the love bracelet, its quality was much better than the love bracelet. When wearing the kyanite bracelet, it was as though one had enveloped a streak of seawater on one's wrist. What was better was that it was warm in winter and cool in summer with the ability to enhance one's spiritual power. It was rumored that if one were to wear it during training the outcome of their labor would be doubled.
Di Fuyi had also taken a fancy to a dagger that shone like the snow. Upon brandishing, the dagger would glimmer with a snowy ray of light that would slice rocks and mountains across it into half orderly as though cutting tofu.
Gu Xijiu could not help but sigh. No wonder rumor has it that the richest being in the world is the Dragon King. Though she had never seen the Dragon King before, the undersea Mermaid Kingdom was indeed the richest with countless treasures.
Not only were the treasures prepossessing, they all had a variety of functions as well that was greatly beneficial to the cultivation of spiritual power.
Of course, each of the items was exorbitant beyond comprehension.
