Fortunately, even though the people here were a little dissatisfied with him, he had saved everyone's life before. Therefore, everyone only secretly complained about him behind his back and did not take it too personally.
Gu Xijiu looked at the house. It was very dark, and the light inside was not turned on. It seemed that he was not home yet. Gu Xijiu sighed. She had no idea where to find him. If he wanted to hide from her,she would not be able to find him even if she had ten hounds.
She decided to ask the mussel regarding the location where they had gone to practice. The mussel acted mysteriously. It said that it was a secret and it was not at liberty to reveal it to others. However, Celestial Master Zuo had mentioned that it could only tell its master. Finally, it arrived at the main point of the conversation after giving a lengthy explanation. It said that they had gone to the root of the banana-milk tree to practice. The place was filled with the essence collected from both the Heaven and the Earth. It could enhance someone's practice speed to become ten times faster.
However, the place was like a maze. It required the blood from Celestial Master Zuo before it could drill until the roots of the banana-milk tree. What the mussel had told her was quite intriguing. At first, Gu Xijiu had planned to ask him when they had the chance to talk as his spiritual power had been fully restored in such a short time. Was it possible that he had gone back to the roots of the banana-milk tree to continue practicing? Or had he left this place for good?
Anyway, Gu Xijiu still had no idea how to find him. She felt somewhat lost at that moment. It seemed like Luo Zhanyu was in a bad mood too. He took out a jar of liquor and invited her to his house to drink. At that point, Gu Xijiu also felt like drinking to wash off her bad mood, so she followed him back to his house.
Luo Zhanyu asked her while they were drinking, "Since Celestial Master Zuo knew the way to enter this place, he should know how to leave this place too, right? Perhaps, we will be able to leave very soon"
'Does he know the way out?' Gu Xijiu never had a chance to ask Di Fuyi about it.
"Don't you want to leave?" Gu Xijiu asked. The living condition here was horrible. Does he like staying in this place?
Luo Zhanyu shook his head and continued drinking.
Gu Xijiu had something in her mind. "Are you in a bad mood?"
Luo Zhanyu paused for a second but did not speak. He continued finishing his drink.
Gu Xijiu was quite sharp. "Is it because of Meng Suyan?"
Luo Zhanyu was stunned. He looked up at Gu Xijiu. "How did you know"
Gu Xijiu sighed. "Though you are good at acting, your eyes betray you" Her brother had always been very fair to everyone. However, he would occasionally look at Meng Suyan differently so Gu Xijiu could sense that her brother liked the beautiful lady. Unfortunately, she was loyal to her fiance, so Luo Zhanyu could only hide his feeling in his heart. He did not want to let her find out about it.
Perhaps, Gu Xijiu had revealed his secret. Or had he finally found someone reliable to share his feelings with? Luo Zhanyu finally told the secret that he kept deep in his heart. "Xijiu, I like her. However, she has a fianc in the outside world. She loves him very much, and so I do not want to get involved in their affair"
He laughed at himself. "Earlier on, we were unable to find a way out so I thought we would be staying here forever until we die. I had some hope that she might change her mind as time passed. Perhaps, after several more years, she would slowly accept me"
He took another sip of his drink. "Xijiu, do you think I am despicable?"
