Long Siye's condition was far worse than he had thought it would be. Long Fan's soul seemed to have merged with his, and their souls could only be separated with a particular technique. He had not figured it out just yet. He hated Long Fan. He would turn his soul into ashes at any opportunity.
It was not difficult at all to destroy Long Fan. However, before their souls were entirely separated, killing Long Fan meant that Long Siye would be killed, too.
He had to keep Long Siye alive, for he was one of the heaven's giftdisciples. Moreover, even if he was not a heaven's gift disciple, he was Gu Xijiu's most precious friend. She would be devastated if he was killed. He did not want to hurt Gu Xijiu. Also, he should keep Long Siye alive to be her valuable assistant in the future.
He did not want Long Siye to find out that it was Long Fan who was secretly attached in his body, as Long Fan's soul was more powerful than Long Siye's. If he knew that the 'bug' was actually Long Fan, he would definitelybe worried. At every thought, Long Fan would be stimulated and gradually became stronger. Soon enough, he would be released again. Therefore, Di Fuyi had to pretend it was only a venomous spell to switch the subject to a lighter cause.
When he returned to his room, he saw that Gu Xijiu was still deep in her sleep. Her long, silky smooth hair covered the entire pillow. She slept heavily, looking calm and carefree.
He cleaned up briefly with the cleaning spell before he climbed into bed. Then, he lay down closely next to her. Even in her sleep, Gu Xijiu was used to clinging to him tenaciously. Not long after he lay down, she silently crept into his embrace.
Di Fuyi watched her as she slept, contemplating. Then, he planted a gentle kiss on her lips. "Baby, I will make sure that the world is a peaceful place for you by getting rid of all your troubles. "
He sounded serious, as though making an oath. In her sleep, Gu Xijiu mumbled. "I am not worried about trouble."
Di Fuyi was taken by surprise. Amused, he let out a quick laugh and kissed her again. "You are right... Troubles should choose to avoid you instead."
Gu Xijiu did not respond and fell back into deep sleep.
Di Fuyi pulled her closer into his arms and fell asleep with her.
When Gu Xijiu woke up the next day, the sun was already high up in the sky. She sat and saw Di Fuyi next to her, who was still deeply asleep.
Is he tired? It was odd for Di Fuyi to stay in bed longer than usual. Puzzled, she got down and studied his complexion. He appeared to be a little pale, with his under eyes covered with a faint shade of dark circles. Obviously, he was really exhausted.
Gu Xijiu was a little worried about him. He had done so many things in a day and met so many people. Hastily, he came all the way to see her that very night just to make sure she was fine. They even made love to each other. For sure, he must be tired.
She thought about it for a moment and figured out that she should make some food for him. Just when she was about to get out from the bed, his arm suddenly clung onto her waist. Relaxed, Di Fuyi's voice could be heard. "Where are you going?"
Gu Xijiu answered with questions, "Are you hungry? Do you want to eat something?"
Di Fuyi's face brightened up. "I am hungry!" Di Fuyi replied frankly.
"I will prepare something good for you." Gu Xijiu cupped his face in her palms. "Sleep a little while more if you are tired. I will wake you up when the food is done."
Before she left the bed, Di Fuyi grabbed her hand and said, "Baby, please do not tell Long Siye yet, about Long Fan taking over his body during the night."
Gu Xijiu did not understand. "Why? Shouldn't we warn him? Maybe he has his ways to get rid of Long Fan."
