Gu Xijiu shook her head. "There is nothing wrong with liking a person. Moreover, you have never forced her into a relationship. She does not even know your feeling towards her"
"Is that so?" Luo Zhanyu was not a very good drinker. After several glasses of liquor, he started to get drunk. "I met her just now at the practice field. She was holding a hairpin in her hand. I walked over and chatted with her only to discover that her fianc was the one who had given her the hairpin. She had been keeping it with her for many years now. It was the first time she smiled at me just now. She said that she finally saw some hope of leaving this place and reuniting with her fianc. She even asked me which dress was nice on her cause she wanted to wear it to meet her fianc. She wanted to look pretty in front of him"
Gu Xijiu remained silent. She did not know how to console Luo Zhanyu. Though Meng Suyan was a good girl, there was no fate between her and Luo Zhanyu. Though men usually change their love targets very quickly, the same could not be said for women. Their love for someone would last forever once they recognized someone as the life partner.
Both siblings were in a bad mood, so they kept drinking. After one hour, Gu Xijiu started to feel tipsy. Suddenly, she heard a flute sound coming from the distance. It sounded lovely especially when it was heard during the night.
Gu Xijiu immediately stood up. It was him! It was Di Fuyi! He had not left the place yet! She rushed anxiously towards the direction of the sound.
However, she was only able to estimate the location where the sound was coming from as she was a bit drunk at that moment. She teleported deep into the mountain and almost crashed into a beast at some point.
When the beast saw her, it could not resist the fresh meat that was in front of it. Therefore, it roared and prepared to attack Gu Xijiu.
Gu Xijiu was shocked and tried to become more sober. It was a level seven beast which was rather ferocious as it had not eaten in days and was starving.
Gu Xijiu's reactions were somewhat slower than usual as she felt tipsy because of all the liquor she had drunk earlier. Though she managed to kill the beast, her arm had been bitten by it. The pain felt excruciating!
She quietly cursed and hastily bandaged the wound before she carried on with her journey.
Di Fuyi was sitting under a tree. His purple robe was fluttering in the wind. There was a small desk in front of him and there were dishes and liquor on the table.
Finally, Gu Xijiu saw Di Fuyi. At the same time, he stopped playing his flute as a lady dressed in silver walked out from the dark. She stood in front of Di Fuyi and bowed. "Huang Shangxiang is honored to meet Celestial Master Zuo."
Di Fuyi did not look at her and only nodded before picking up his cup of liquor to drink. When Huang Shangxiang saw what had happened, she immediately stepped forward and said, "Let me do it. I am rather good at pouring liquor. I can pour the glass to its fullest without overflowing it"
Di Fuyi had a cool expression on his face. He lifted his sleeve, and Huang Shangxiang was pushed away by an invisible force. She heard Di Fuyi shout, "Go away!" Celestial Master Zuo was in a bad mood, and so he did not allow anyone to get close to him.
Huang Shangxiang almost fell onto the ground. She staggered several steps backward before regaining her balance. However, she did not want to give up. It was such an excellent opportunity now to get closer to Celestial Master Zuo, and she did not want to miss it. "Celestial Master Zuo I have no other intention. I am merely grateful that you saved us several days ago and so I want to repay you as much as I can"
She continued to explain her intentions to Di Fuyi. Suddenly, Di Fuyi pointed at her with his finger, and Huang Shangxiang lost her voice.
