Baili Ce sat beside Gu Xijiu and graciously asked, "What would you like to eat? Let me bring it for you."
Gu Xijiu fed fruit to Lu Wu who was lying on her shoulder. She lazily answered, "No, I don't feel like eating anything right now." She was not in the mood.
Tomorrow would mark the ninth day since Di Fuyi had left. 'Would he show up as promised?' She was still waiting for an explanation from him.
She was head over heels for him to the extent that it was unexplainable. However, she could not forget about the story she had heard about the former empress of the mermaids. She had thought about it a lot recently. However, she still could not accept the fact.
After going through so much with him, she knew that Di Fuyi truly loved her. However, did he still have feelings for the former empress of the mermaids?
Of course, she could accept the fact that he had an ex-girlfriend. To be honest, she had several ex-boyfriends in the past. What she could not accept was the fact that he was planning to give her original body to the former empress of the mermaids. He had been working very hard to get the former empress of the mermaids a good body. What would he do after the former empress of the mermaids had been revived?
Would he start a new relationship with her? After all, the marriage bracelet was on her original body. Di Fuyi and the former empress of the mermaids would be the perfect pair for each other.
What about herself? Was she just a replacement during the period when he was single? Di Fuyi had probably thought that it would take the former empress of the mermaids hundreds or thousands of years to revive. Gu Xijiu would have already died by that time.
After all, she was a human. Even if she practiced and reached a spiritual power of level nine, she would not be able to live longer than a thousand years. Perhaps, Di Fuyi could accompany her to the end of her life.
Meanwhile, the former empress of the mermaids would be the one who accompanied him for his entire life. Gu Xijiu was only one of many passersby in his long life.
Though Gu Xijiu never expected her partner to love her and stay by her side forever, she wanted to be the only one in her partner's heart.
Moreover, she could not accept the fact that Di Fuyi wanted to give her original body away to his ex-girlfriend. Once she had passed away, Di Fuyi could still be together with his ex-girlfriend who would be using Gu Xijiu's body. Though this might have been a perfect arrangement for him, Gu Xijiu did not like it at all. She always felt that she was a substitute companion to him.
She was deep in thought for a while and did not hear what Baili Ce was asking her. Luo Zhanyu, who was sitting on the other side of Gu Xijiu, elbowed her. She looked at Baili Ce and asked, "What did you say?"
Baili Ce asked with a serious face, "Xijiu, do you have a marriage arrangement with Celestial Master Zuo? Do you want to marry him?"
Gu Xijiu felt like she was coming down with a headache. She did not want to answer his question, so she took a sip of her drink and changed the topic. "That is my problem. Baili Ce, I don't like people asking about my personal affairs."
Baili Ce was stunned for a moment. "Well, I honestly did not want to talk about it. All I wanted you to know, Xijiu, is that I don't care about the affair between you and him. Since both of you have not gotten married yet, I have a right to like you, and I won't give up."
Gu Xijiu was speechless.
Baili Ce was the elite among his people. He possessed a spiritual power of level eight. He was handsome and a very sporty looking man. He would usually take the lead when everyone went out hunting. Gu Xijiu heard that Baili Ce came from a very famous family living on the continent. If Baili Ce were not trapped in this place, he would be the leader of the Bai family.
She had gotten all this information from Luo Zhanyu. In fact, Baili Ce was Luo Zhanyu's ideal candidate to be his brother in law. He always intentionally tried matchmaking them to be together.
