Gu Xijiu made Di Fuyi work a lot tonight. After Di Fuyi had carried her down from the hill, she asked him to carry her up again. She claimed that she liked the feeling of listening to his heartbeat while being on his back. Fortunately, Di Fuyi was not an ordinary person. It was an easy task for him to carry her as she was as light as a piece of paper to him.
Their way of spending time together was pretty cool too. Perhaps Di Fuyi felt guilty to her, so he did not reject when Gu Xijiu had made such a strange request. While he carried her back and forth, he enjoyed listening to Gu Xijiu's singing.
When they were back at the ice house, Gu Xijiu let Di Fuyi know of her intention to bring her three beasts back with her. Di Fuyi considered the fact that the ice house did not need the guarding of the three creatures anymore, so he agreed to her proposal. He seemed to be interested in walking with her, so he asked her, "Let's go. Let me walk you back."
Gu Xijiu laughed. "It's okay. You must be tired. I will use my teleportation ability to go back. You might create a problem if you send me back to my house. The family will not welcome you peacefully. Besides, I sneaked out without other people being aware, so it would be better for me to go back secretly."
What she said made sense, so Di Fuyi agreed with her.
She was very clingy tonight. She gave Di Fuyi a big hug before she left with the three beasts. When she was gone, Di Fuyi felt that something was not quite right. After pondering for a short while, he contacted the secret guards at General Gu's house. The guard told him that Miss Gu had returned and was now having a bath in the room while she prepared to rest. Gu Xijiu had a habit of taking a bath before she went to sleep. Therefore, Di Fuyi was no longer worried.
He was quite tired too, so he decided to meditate to recover his power. Before he began his meditation, he ordered his subordinates not to interrupt him if there was nothing urgent.
Meditation was the fastest way to recover. Since he had no distractions, he meditated the whole night and only opened his eyes in the morning. He felt so much better, so he tried contacting the secret guard to check on Gu Xijiu. However, he failed to reach the guard this time around.
Di Fuyi had a bad feeling. Usually, the guard was quite steady when he was on duty. Something must have happened which prevented him from being contacted.
He did not ask Mu Feng to check on the guard but personally went over to the general's house instead. He discovered that Gu Xijiu was missing!
Meanwhile, the guard had been tied up like a dumpling on a couch in her room. When the guard saw Di Fuyi, he looked embarrassed and tried whining. His sound was even softer than a mosquito.
Di Fuyi waved his sleeve, and the spiritual rope that was bounding the secret guard was released. Di Fuyi then made some gestures to release his acupuncture points and asked, "What happened?"
The guard leaped up, and his face was red as an apple. "Sorry that I was incompetent. Miss Gu had discovered my existence and successfully attacked me…"
Di Fuyi clenched his fists. "Where did she go? When did she leave?"
"It was… It was around midnight last night. I saw her ordering a maid to prepare her bathtub so that she could to take a bath and so I left the courtyard for a while. However, I was secretly attacked by her when I was wandering around the courtyard… Oh! She left a letter on my sleeve and asked me to pass it to you."
The guard quickly handed the letter to Di Fuyi. Di Fuyi opened it, and his face turned pale!
There were only a few words in the letter. 'Celestial Master Zuo, I will give you my original body voluntarily. I don't want you to feel guilty and offer me any compensation.'
