It appeared to look like a really young child at the age of six or seven. It had a delicate look with fine features. There was a mole in the shape of a flame in the middle between its brows. Its cute little look was everyone's cup of tea.
It had always preferred to share Gu Xijiu's bed. After she was married, Celestial Master Zuo took its place and forbade it from getting any closer. Moreover, as Celestial Master Zuo was inseparable with Gu Xijiu even during the day, it had no chance at all in getting into her sleeves. It could not even get close to her body, as Celestial Master Zuo often thought that it was too hairy to get attached. Its hair would easily stick to her clothing and body.
Lu Wu was unhappy about it but was unable to express its frustration. Because of that, it decided to continue its practice as much as it could. Finally, it was able to attain its human figure after seven years of hard work. It knew that she liked little children, so it transformed into the shape of a child, hoping that she would hug it once again and take it to bed with her like she used to.
As expected, she liked its human form as a child very much. She pinched its limbs several times and could not help but kissed its cute little cheeks, too. Finally, Lu Wu could feel the love from its master again. However, their encounter did not last long, as Celestial Master Zuo was back and saw what they were doing.
He observed its form for a moment and praised it on the transformation. He patted its head and gifted him two silver bracelets with simple patterns. As he seldom offered it any forms of encouragement, Lu Wu was very delighted and quickly wore the bracelets on its hands. It then went to show off to the other two what it just got from Celestial Master Zuo to make them envy. Lastly, it went to look for Gu Xijiu. She was curious about the bracelets, so she asked it to take them off so she could look closely. However, that was the time when it realized that it could not take them off.
The two bracelets were as physically attached to its skin on both its wrists. It could not take them off, no matter how it tried. The more it struggled to take them off, the tighter the bracelets got. It was so helpless that it started crying.
Gu Xijiu wanted to help. The moment she touched it, it immediately reverted to its original form.
The two bracelets were attached exactly at its front paws.
Lu Wu was furious. It transformed its figure between the bigger and smaller forms, hoping that it was able to break off the bracelets, or at least loosen them. However, the bracelets were known as Ru Yi Bracelets, which could change their sizes according to its bearer's form.
Lu Wu finally understood that it was attached to the bracelets. Also, the bracelets had another function. As long as it came into physical contact with Gu Xijiu, no matter how its human figure, it would be immediately reverted back to its original form. It would not be able to change for two hours.
Lu Wu felt that Celestial Master Zuo had deceived it with such an evil trick. Ablaze with anger, it went to see Celestial Master Zuo and asked him to take back the bracelets. It did not want them any longer. After listening to its lengthy explanation, Celestial Master Zuo gave it a cold look as he took out another new, shiny necklace. He responded with a friendly look, "I still have another Ru Yi Necklace. You look adorable in your human form, I am sure that this necklace will make you look even better. Come, let me put it on for you."
Lu Wu ran away almost immediately.
From that day onwards, Lu Wu would fly as far away as possible every time it saw Celestial Master Zuo. It would never get close to him anymore.
As for the bracelets, they sat well on its wrists as accessories, as long as it stopped touching them or trying to take them off.
Celestial Master Zuo was away now, as he needed to pack for their departure. Lu Wu finally got the window it needed to get closer to Gu Xijiu. It could finally stand by her side to have a proper conversation, as long as there was not any physical contact.
