The people here preferred the primitive way of living. Most men would take their baths in the nearby ponds, while women would be assigned with a bathtub. The bathtub was a water container with a higher depth, enough for a lady to fit half her body.
Gu Xijiu was assigned with one of the containers when she first got here. However, she thought that it was too small, so she only used it for her feet. Instead, she went into the mountains and found a piece of solid wood. She then carved it and turned it into a bathtub.
She only wanted to make it more practical, so she did not put much emphasis on its aesthetics. The tub was spacious enough to fit a tall man.
Di Fuyi took a look at the finishing of the tub and gave his honest opinions, "The wall of the tub is a little rough. It may not be so comfortable to lay in it."
Gu Xijiu was agitated. "This is all that I can offer. Leave it if you don't like it."
From his expression, she could tell that he was already sober. The pill was effective, as she had only administered them a few moments ago. It was perhaps also because he was a God, so his physical body worked differently from that of an ordinary being.
He returned to his usual self, someone who was picky and not easily pleased. He only liked specific things. How could he possibly have so many comments on a tub? He deserved to only live in heaven.
Gu Xijiu took another look at his clean clothes and smooth hair. He had used the cleaning spell on himself. Hence, he no longer needed the bath.
She always forgot that he was a God. Hail would not easily affect a man like him, even if he stood under it for the entire night, let alone the rain. She cared too much.
"Did you make the tub yourself?" Di Fuyi took a walk, circling the tub as he observed. "It looks very raw and archaic."
Gu Xijiu did not know what to say. Then, she watched as Di Fuyi slowly removed his pants.
She was stunned!
Her heart beat out of control. Hastily, she turned around to avoid the sight. "What… What are you doing?"
Di Fuyi responded casually, "Taking a bath. Didn't you say that this is all prepared for me?"
He was swift in removing his pants. Promptly after his reply, Gu Xijiu could hear the sound of water splashing in the tub as he entered it.
She dared not look back. She raised her arm, and a layer of cotton curtain circled the tub. "Haven't you used the cleaning spell already? The bath is useless for you now."
She could hear splashes of water amidst his response, "The cleaning spell is still different from a real bath. I prefer a bath." Hesitantly, he continued, "Don't you need a bath?"
Was he inviting her for a bath together?
Gu Xijiu did not hesitate when she took off his clothes just now, only because he was soaking wet. She had no other choice. Also, he was too drunk to do it himself. However, the situation was different now, as he had completely sobered up. She dared not take another step towards the tub.
She took a look at her body. There were tea and water stains. The water in the tub spilled when she carried it tremblingly out of sheer surprise. She looked into the mirror, only to see herself covered in her messy hair. She definitely needed a bath.
"You can have your bath first. I will have it later."
She could not find the courage to share the same tub with him while he was sober. Certainly, she would not share the bath with him while he was drunk, either. At most, she would only strip him of his clothes and place him in the bath naked.
Di Fuyi sighed. This was not a great time to stay sober.
With his physical condition, he would hardly get drunk. So far, it only happened twice, all because of her. She witnessed both times as well. Although he was drunk, he was not completely wasted to the point of not remembering anything.
