Suddenly, the bridechamber, Di Fuyi, and everything disappeared. She saw Luo Zhanyu who panicked when she woke up with a shiver. He was looking at her as he stood beside the bed. "You're awake! Did you have a bad dream?"
Gu Xijiu did not answer.
Her heart was still pumping rapidly as the flame of anger burnt in her chest. It was a dream. At the end of the dream, Gu Xiju seemingly saw Di Fuyi opening his eyes, and he stood up from the chair hurriedly. She woke up just as he rushed towards her!
Indeed, she had a strong imagination. Since she was thinking about their wedding night before she got drunk, she found him in the dream and even saw various scenes there.
What she saw in the dream was probably unreal. Perhaps, it was the result of her thinking about Di Fuyi too much during the daytime. However, the last scene in her dream made her very upset and angry at the same time.
"Xijiu, did you dream about Di Fuyi again?" Luo Zhanyu asked. She shouted so loud that he could not even pretend to be deaf.
Gu Xijiu was annoyed. "Don't mention his name to me!" She got mad whenever she heard his name.
How could he give her body to someone else!? He had even said that she was his one and only. He was such a liar!
Luo Zhanyu remained silent.
He sat down at the edge of her bed and said, "Xijiu, tell me honestly. Did he mistreat you? What did he lie about?"
He had only one sister, and he definitely would not allow anyone to bully her. He wanted to protect her. It was as though he would immediately cause trouble for Di Fuyi as soon as she had told the truth. Gu Xijiu felt a warmth deep down inside her heart. However, she had gone through many ups and downs along with Di Fuyi and so it was not easy solving the conflicts between the two of them. Besides, they were now trapped inside the village, and there was no way to find Di Fuyi even if they wanted to slaughter him.
Therefore, Gu Xijiu assumed that it was just a dream and did not take it too seriously.
She looked out from the window and noticed that the sky was still dark.
She wondered. "Brother, why would you come here?"
Luo Zhanyu replied, "I thought that you would probably be feeling uncomfortable right now since you had drunk quite a lot last night and so, I brought some soup for you You were having a bad dream when I arrived. Therefore, I quickly woke you up"
He then took the hot bowl of soup that was sitting on the table and placed it on her palms. "Here, drink some soup. It can help to soothe your headache."
Indeed, Gu Xijiu felt a little uncomfortable as she had a hangover. She managed to calm herself a little after drinking the soup. Suddenly, her heart skipped a beat. She recalled the fact that she had bumped into Di Fuyi in her dream. Di Fuyi was soaking in a pond, and he had even kissed her forcefully. Later on, when she brought it up, Di Fuyi had clarified with her that it was not a dream.
What about this time? Was it a dream or did it happen in reality?
According to Di Fuyi, it was due to her soul detaching from her body. Hence, he could see her and even kiss her. However, he could not see her this time around so perhaps it was just a dream.
However, he might have seen her when she rushed out and yelled at him. It was probably the reason why he suddenly stood up in shock.
It was still early, so Gu Xijiu decided to slump back into her quilt. "Brother, thanks for the soup but I feel like sleeping again"
Luo Zhanyu had not gotten his rest yet as he came to visit right after the campfire gathering. He left her house after offering her several reminders.
Gu Xijiu once again closed her eyes and realized that she could not fall asleep as she was still upset about the previous dream.
