Unfortunately, she did not want to this kind of compensation. Even if she was not highly respected like Celestial Master Zuo and the royalties of mermaids, she had her dignity. She wanted to be her lover's only partner and not have to share her partner with another woman. He was marrying her now as a way of compensating her!
When the empress awakes, he would be married to her too. If it ever happens, it would be tragic for Gu Xijiu! She would never allow herself to fall into this kind of misery so she would prefer to let go now than to fulfill their wish. It was the plan that Gu Xijiu had in her mind now.
Since the big mussel and the other guardians were not required at the ice palace anymore, she wanted to bring them along with her. Therefore she tried persuading them. "Do you all want to go back with me?"
"Yes!" The big mussels answered without hesitation. The other two also nodded.
Though the original body of their master was important, their master had already possessed a new body. Furthermore, it was even more beautiful than the original one. Therefore, the big mussel thought that its master did not care so much about the old body anymore. Besides, with the help of Beauty Pearl, the old body did not need them to guard anymore. They had been wanting to explore the mountains and looked for to the wilderness!
"Master, can we go hunting in the mountains?" The big mussels asked carefully.
"Sure." Gu Xijiu smiled.
Just as she had walked out the door, a cold breeze swept by her and a human appeared from out from nowhere and stood in front of Gu Xijiu.
Gu Xijiu was shocked and took two steps backward. Her heartbeat was fast as she shouted, "Celestial Master Zuo!" The person who had shown up was Di Fuyi. It was rare to see him wearing pajamas. His long hair was slightly messy too. He had rushed here.
When he saw Gu Xijiu walk out of the door, he was relieved and pulled her into his arms. "Why didn't you inform me before you came here?" When did you arrive?"
"I missed them, so I came to visit them. I was here just for a while" Gu Xijiu tried calming herself down and answered him as usual.
Di Fuyi looked at her and jokingly asked, "Do you only miss them?"
Of course, she missed him. She missed him like crazy, which was why she had created an excuse to come here.Gu Xijiu replied, "Of course I missed you too." She then noticed that he was a bit messy. "How did you know that I was here?"
Di Fuyi remained silent. Though he had sent her back to the general's house, he had secretly assigned a few guards to protect her. The guards' job was to protect her as well as to monitor her whereabouts so that she would not run away.
He had received the report from the guards while he was resting earlier. The guards told him that Gu Xijiu had disappeared from her bedroom and they could not find her in the general's house.
The guards were very good at monitoring people. When they were on duty to protect someone, no one was able to come close to the person they were defending. Therefore, it was almost impossible that Gu Xijiu had been kidnapped by someone else. The only possible reason why she had disappeared without anyone noticing was that she had run away on her own using her teleportation technique!
However, the guards were only responsible for monitoring from the outside, and so they had no idea when she had left the room. After they had failed to locate Gu Xijiu, they quickly reported the incident to Di Fuyi.
The first thought Di Fuyi had was that she had sneaked into the ice house and so he immediately rushed over here. His intuition was right, and she was here.
He pulled her into his arm and held her hand. He looked at her with eyes full of love. "Why are you so cold? When did you arrive here?"
"I arrived not too long ago"
