Lu Wu liked to wear red, so Gu Xijiu made a little red robe for it. The red robe suited it so much, looking as though a picture that came vividly alive.
Gu Xijiu looked around the house, as she kept all her belongings in the storage bag. Before this, all she thought about was to leave this place. Now that she was about to go, there came upon her a sense of dreary deprivation.
She stood in the middle of the house, gazing at the surrounding. Di Fuyi emerged behind her and noticed her expression. "What is wrong?"
Gu Xijiu leaned on his chest. "I feel a little reluctant to leave. After all, it has been our home for the past eight years." She recalled a lot of good times that they had in this house.
Di Fuyi observed the house. He took thing easy and would not be easily bothered by these mundane affairs. All his life, he had been living in numerous places with all sorts of luxuries and styles. However, it was the first time for him to live in such a simple and unadorned house.
He could take down any place easily without a second thought, regardless of how luxurious it was. This place, however, clearly meant something else to him.
It had been their home for the past eight years.
He thought about it for a moment and said, "We should tear down the place."
Gu Xijiu could not respond. "Ah? Why?" She was reluctant to do so. There were things that they made together to build it, like the painting on the wall, and the windows.
Di Fuyi continued, "I do not wish to see the house being inhabited by someone else." Once they left, the house would be taken over by someone else who stayed behind. He could not tolerate seeing his beloved home being occupied by others.
Gu Xijiu understood so she did not stop him. She thought the same as he did. Therefore, Di Fuyi proceeded to tear down the place.
The process was swift. He flipped his sleeves several times and the house completely disappeared before their eyes, as though it had just been swept away by a flurry gust of strong wind.
They had to leave, no matter how heavy hearted it was to leave. When the time was up, all nine of them gathered.
Gu Xijiu, along with her three majestic pets, climbed to the top of the tree with other men. Then, they performed a spell, according to how Di Fuyi had instructed them to, to allow access through the barrier.
The sealed opening above the tree was triggered by an enormous force, as it started trembling. Soon, an opening could be seen forming. All nine of them sprang out of the opening one by one.
All of them disappeared almost instantaneously. Zhou Tianci followed their steps quietly and was determined to do what they just did, as he continued to spring upward towards the opening. However, before he could reach it, an unknown force immediately halted him and rebounded him back to the ground.
The force was great. As he fell quickly to the ground, he broke the branches all the way through. Some of the branches plunged into his body. The pain made him scream in agony. When he was discovered, there were branches all over a body like a porcupine.
The only doctor left in the village was Le Xiaotong (Gu Xijiu had been passing on her medical knowledge to her throughout the years as Le Xiaotong was a keen learner. Although she was not as skilled as Gu Xijiu, she was still a great doctor. Handling external injuries was no problem).
Initially, Zhou Tianci did not agree to let his wife learn medicine, as she would have to get physically in touch with other men. Later, when he decided he would abandon her, he decided to care less about her. Even though seeing her treat another man would still make him feel uncomfortable, he tried his hardest not to care and disregard it.
At this moment, he was severely injured, but still conscious. He knew that his pals were carrying him to where Le Xiaotong lived.
