She took a deep breath. "Celestial Master Zuo, I know that I do not own the original body. Its true owner is the real Miss Gu, the daughter of General Gu. I somehow accidentally possessed it and trained it to a higher level. Besides, you also partly contributed to making it happen.Now that I have a new body, you wouldn't feel guilty anymore if you gave the original body to your ex-lover. It is a perfect plan, am I right?"
She revealed everything that she knew to him. She then looked at Di Fuyi, but he did not reply. It was the best time for him to listen to what she had in her mind. He tapped lightly the table and said, "Carry on."
Gu Xijiu slightly frowned. As she had said so many things in her mind, she did not feel like hiding it anymore. "Celestial Master Zuo, have you ever thought... If you marry me now, what will be your arrangement with the former empress of the mermaids once she comes back to life? You have worked so hard to revive her, so I believe that you would have a deep affection for her. If she comes back to life, will you let her go that easily? What would happen to me then? Are you going to ask me to share my husband with another woman? Or are you going to divorce me to be with her? Or perhaps she still requires a long time to be resurrected. Therefore, I am just a temporary replacement for her. Since you have met me, you probably thought that you could stay together with me until I pass away or maybe until you get bored with me"
Di Fuyi looked slightly unpredictable. He had caught a loophole. "I thought you only cared about the process instead of the ending in a relationship?"
Gu Xijiu rubbed her eyebrow. "I did say that, but I also hoped that our relationship would be simple without anyone taking advantage of the other. I want us to be loyal to each other. However, the things that you have done makes me feel that I am just a substitute. You promised to marry me as a form of compensation. Perhaps, you liked me and wanted to marry me willingly, but I find it unacceptable Even if I am just a human clone, I want to live with dignity. I don't want to be compensated with a relationship, and I also don't want to be anyone's substitute"
Finally, she had said everything that had been kept inside her heart for a very long time. It felt like a huge burden had been lifted from her heart. She heaved a sigh of relief. "You may think that I'm ungrateful or hypocritical, but I find it unacceptable so I only had the option of leaving."
Di Fuyi sighed. "Are you done talking? Is that all?"
Gu Xijiu nodded. "Yes."
"Alright, let me explain it to you. Firstly, the former empress of the mermaids is not my fianc. Secondly, she is indeed dead, and there is no way for me to resurrect her anymore. Your original body was not reserved for her. Thirdly, I never treated you as a substitute. I have only fallen in love with one person in my entire life, and that person is you. The relationship between the former empress and I is not like what you have thought. We were just friends. Fourthly, I wanted to marry you because I love you. Do you think I will waste my effort to marry someone that I don't as a form of compensation? Therefore, whatever you have just said is utter nonsense."
Gu Xijiu was shocked when he mentioned the four points to her. She tried fighting back. "But I heard that the mermaid siblings"
