Gu Xijiu's brother, Gu Tiannuo, had run into the Dark Forest as he was too mad at his father. Since then, no one had heard any news from him, and everyone assumed that he had passed away. However, Gu Xijiu knew that he was also still alive.
That was because she knew that Di Fuyi could perform 'Soul Calling' magic and she had asked him to help to look for Gu Tiannuo's soul. However, the almighty Celestial Master Zuo replied her, "He is not dead yet so how am I supposed to summon his soul?"
Gu Xijiu was shocked and kept asking about Gu Tiannuo's whereabouts. Unfortunately, Di Fuyi had refused to disclose any information and only replied, "It's against principles of nature to disclose highly confidential information." Since then he had never brought up the topic anymore.
Now, Gu Xijiu thought about the brother she had never met before. What if Gu Tiannuo was able to return alive? According to the culture of the Feixing Kingdom, it was best to have siblings around when the daughter of the family was getting married.
Perhaps, she should ask Di Fuyi for Gu Tiannuo's whereabouts and try to bring him back. Finally, she had found a good reason to see Di Fuyi. Thus, she immediately changed her clothing and teleported to Fucang Hall.
Initially, there was a unique wizardry barrier surrounding the Fucang Hall, and it was capable of blocking Gu Xijiu from teleporting directly into the hall. However, ever since Di Fuyi had brought her back, he had removed the barrier so that she could teleport around in his palace.
It was already very late at night so Gu Xijiu assumed that Di Fuyi would either be practicing or asleep. Thus, she went straight into his bedroom. Unfortunately, she did not see him there.
Di Fuyi was a very unpredictable person. Hence, it was not easy to know his whereabouts. Even though Gu Xijiu was dismayed, she was not surprised. Gu Xijiu did not want her efforts to end in vain. Hence, she headed to the ice palace as her original body was still there.
Her body needed the spiritual power of the mussel and Lu Wu to be preserved. Hence, Gu Xijiu did not bring them along to the General's manor and had left them behind in the ice palace instead. Gu Xijiu felt that she should pay them a visit, and immediately teleported to the ice palace.
Just as she was about to enter the palace, she heard someone talking.
"Brother-in-law, this body is for my sister, right? It's fantastic! Look, it possesses a spiritual power of level eight!"
The voice was clear and sweet, and Gu Xijiu suddenly felt that her limbs were frozen as she held her breath.
It was Lan Jingyi!
"Brother Huang, this body looks like Miss Gu though. Did something bad happen to her?" Another voice was heard. It was the king of the mermaids, Lan Yaoguang.
"She's fine, stop guessing." Finally, she heard Di Fuyi's voice. It was cold and magnetic as usual.
"How about the body? Is it for my sister?" Lan Yaoguang paused and asked. He sounded like he was walking around the ice coffin." Her aura is so identical to my sister's." He then sighed softly. "Brother Huang, you're such a great and trustworthy person. I'm shocked that you kept your promise of finding a new body for my sister. The quality of this body is great, and it matches her aura. Most importantly, it has achieved a spiritual power of level eight. Though she's still young now, she would become a bright diamond in the future. This is perfect! Perhaps, it won't be long before my sister is resurrected."
"To be honest, I don't really like this appearance." Lan Jingyi sounded a little upset. Gu Xijiu had almost killed her, and so she felt uneasy especially since the body looked 80 percent identical to Gu Xijiu.
"Jingyi! Watch your mouth! You can't blame Miss Gu's shoulder. Don't blame me for suspending you if you are ever rude to her again!" The king of the mermaids was mad.
