Gu Xijiu believed that time was the best medicine. Regardless of how deep their relationship had grown and how hurt she felt right now, it was only a matter of time before things improved.
Perhaps, after several years when she receives news about him and his new partner, she could peacefully and sincerely give him her blessing. She had planned it all out and felt that what she had done was sensible. She had even started planning for a different future.
Nonetheless, she still felt a pain in her heart. It was too painful to the extent that she desperately wanted to get drunk. When Long Xi had betrayed her, she was furious. However, she now felt like her world was collapsing and her heart was being stabbed by a knife even though Di Fuyi had not betrayed her. Her life was full of despair!
When she first discovered the truth last night, her mind started feeling numb, and her senses became more obtuse. However, she still acted in a reasonable and orderly manner.
As an assassin, she was trained to quickly regain her composure whenever she encountered a major psychological blow. Yet, the pain became unbearable as soon as she entered the dark forest and her emotions felt like it was about to pour out. She was suffering deep down inside and wanted to cry out loud!
It was a wasteland with a bonfire.
Gu Xijiu had been alone somewhere inside the jungle when the four-horned goat attacked her as the three spiritual beasts had gone out hunting. Perhaps it had thought that Gu Xijiu was an easy target, so it decided to creep up on her.
As a result, it turned out that the four-horned goat had become the prey instead. It was now just a piece of meat to Gu Xijiu. She was feeling hungry at that moment when the four-horned goat attacked her and wanted to find something to fill her stomach. Therefore, she immediately started setting up her tools to grill the creature after she had killed it.
The big mussel returned from its hunt while she was grilling the goat. It threw out several types of fresh meat from inside its shell and excitedly said, "We are going to have a good feast tonight! I have been a vegetarian for far too long!"
It was shocked when it saw the grilled lamb! "Tao Can! Master, you killed a Tao Can!" The Tao Cans are of the same species as the Tao Ties . Though their appearance and characteristics were very similar to the Tao Ties, they were slightly weaker in terms of their ability.
Nonetheless,the Tao Cans can be rather ferocious too. Even a practitioner who possessed a spiritual power of level eight would run away when they come across a Tao Can. The big mussel never expected that Gu Xijiu could kill the Tao Can on her own!
The big mussel looked at the Tao Can and found that its body had been chopped up like a fish and was full of scars. It shuddered and carefully looked at its master.
Did its master abuse the corpse of the Tao Can? In fact, Tao Cans were easilykilled by slicing its neck using a knife. Gu Xijiu did not care about the big mussel and continued grilling the meat.
Suddenly, the big mussel noticed that something was wrong with her eyes. "Master, your eyes are so red! Did you cry?"
Gu Xijiu raised her hand and rubbed her eyes. "Nonsense! The smoke choked me. I am not crying!" There was water on her finger after she had rubbed her eyes.
The big mussel was speechless.
The baby inside the big mussel stared at the water on her finger. It was not convinced. "Don't lie, you are tearing!"
The mussel was being very inconsiderate. Gu Xijiu sneered! "Stupid mussel! It is natural for me to tear up due to all this smoke."
