This was the first time Di Fuyi saw such a terrible hairstyle. He looked at her and paused. Eventually, he wanted to say something but hesitated. He then moved his gaze away from her hair and said, "Ok, lets catch that fish!" Then he handed her the fishing rod and bait.
Gu Xijiu took the fishing rod that was now black but did not look at the bait provided by him and said, "I will find the bait myself."
Di Fuyi looked at the bait inside his crystal bottle and did not say anything.
This was a bait that was made of a spiritual snake and possessed intense spiritual power. All his spiritual creatures in his house liked this food very much. Di Fuyi wondered if this little girl could find a better bait to use from this place.
Gu Xijiu wandered around the shore for a moment and took out a dagger from her clothes to dig the ground. After a while, she retrieved a thin and long pinkish earthworm from the ground. There was still soil on the earthworm, and it was struggling to escape from her hand.
"This is your bait?" Di Fuyi raised his eyebrow.
Would the fish like to eat such a dirty and nutritionless worm?
Gu Xijiu nodded gently. She then washed the earthworm with water and cut it into pieces. Di Fuyi looked at those uneven pieces of bait and frowned. He raised his sleeve, and a light covered the bait.
Gu Xijiu was shocked and asked, "What are you doing!?" She thought that he wanted to destroy the bait she retrieved.
Di Fuyi did not speak but gestured to ask her to look at her baits. Gu Xijiu looked back at her bait and was surprised. The unevenly sized meats were now the same size. Gu Xijiu remained silent. It seemed clear that Celestial Master Zuo had Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. He did not understand that Gu Xijiu had intentionally cut the earthworm into uneven pieces because she wanted to use the bait for different fish sizes.
However, she did not bother to argue with him but instead continued to prepare to fish. Gu Xijiu was very efficient. She looked at the stars in the sky and walked a few steps on the shore to find a slope to sit on. She then tied a glowing pearl to the fishing rod, put the bait on it, and started to fish.
The glowing pearl was not too bright and was very soft. It only lighted up a small area in the water. After a while, the area where her bait was located started to have humble waves. Di Fuyi raised his eyebrow and was a bit surprised. There were fishes gathered around her bait. He had excellent eyesight and could see it even though the lure was under the water which was quite dark. He was also able to tell the species of the fish that were present.
In just a moment, a huge fish bit on the bait and the fishing line suddenly tugged! Gu Xijiu did not have any response and did not intend to pull out her fishing rod just yet. Celestial Master Zuo wondered if the fishing line was too far away that she did not realize the bite of the fish. But before he finished his thought, the big fish pulled the bait again, and Gu Xijiu finally raised up her arm and turned her wrist to pull the fish out. By leveraging on her hidden strength, the fishing hook finally came out from the water.
A big fish was jumping unwillingly on the grass. Gu Xijiu pressed sandwiched it on the ground with her foot and later picked it up and handed it to Di Fuyi. She smiled and said, "This is to compensate you."
The entire process took less than 10 minutes. Di Fuyi did not accept it and glanced at the fish in her hand. He then said, "I was catching a Silver Princess fish, and this is an autumn fish. It is too ugly. I dont want it."
Gu Xijiu remained silent. It seemed like he deliberately wanted to inconvenience her.
The fish he was trying to catch had a lovely name, but it did not taste as good as the autumn fish. She felt that the purpose of fishing was to eat the fish and regardless of whether it was ugly or not.
