When he sold her the Illusion Weed which had a net worth of nearly 10,000,000 ounces of silver at only 50,000 ounces of silver, he basically gave it to her for free but also managed to drag her into the situation whereby she had to be chased after by Rong Chu's men together with him.
Therefore, Gu Xijiu had a deep memory of him. She later tried to look for him too, but he seemed to have disappeared from the world as she could neither see nor hear him. She did not expect that she could meet him here!
It was the third peak of the Dark Forest, and a person with level six spiritual power would find it difficult to survive here, yet he could appear from nowhere in the shape of a tree.
When Gu Xijiu was staring at him, she was somewhat perplexed.
"Uhj, uhj, you have a very firm grip" That childe kept coughing.
"Im sorry." Gu Xijiu released her fingers to let go of his neck, "Youwhyre you here?"
"You know me?" The long eyelashes of that childe suddenly blinked while curiously staring at her.
Gu Xijiu hearts missed a beat, and she remembered she was in disguise when she first met him. She was looking like Ren Mosheng and dressed like a man. Besides, she was very short and was different from how she looked like now, no wonder he could not recognize her.
"Weve seen each other before" Gu Xijiu stared directly into his eyes, "At the auction house of the Feixing Kingdom. You sold me a 3,000-year-old Illusion Weed at 50,000 ounces of silver."
That childe opened his eyes widely as he was surprised, "Its you! Youre a girl!" He sized her again, "And a beautiful one if I might add."
Gu Xijiu, ""
When she was at the auction house, she felt that this person was not someone simple as she could not understand him yet. She thought that he knew about her origin at that time. But with his current expression, he did not seem to be the man she thought he was.
While she was pondering, the person beneath her moved but was held down by her subconsciously. Therefore, he stopped moving and said directly, "Miss, its improper for man and woman to touch each other. Though we knew each other earlier, its not very appropriate for you to ride on my body, right?"
Gu Xijiu just realized that she was still sitting on his waist!
She blushed and finally jumped up, "Im sorry! Why are you here?"
That childe also stood up, but the soft rope Gu Xijiu used was still tangled around his waist. Therefore, Gu Xijiu raised her finger and kept the soft rope back.
He flicked his clothes to clean the dust and soil away from his body, "Good question! This question is what I wanted to ask you too. Why are you here? And why did you tangle onto me like a tree? Fortunately, I knew a bit kungfu, or else Id be pulled into that Bone Dissolving Stream directly, and not a single bone of mine would be left."
Gu Xijiu felt deeply ashamed as the condition was too urgent that she did not see clearly what was available and thought that it was a tree. But fortunately, this person appeared at the riverbank in time. Otherwise, she would lose her life falling into the stream!
Gu Xijiu coughed lightly, "I was rushing because the killer centipedes were chasing me. Im sorry I offended you!" She apologized.
The childe responded, "Its alright, its not your time to die yet after all. If Im not here, youd have fallen into the stream!"
It was true, Gu Xijiu did not deny this and directly nodded.
Oddly enough, 100 meters on the opposite side of the stream was bare land. It did not even have a single weed growing at all, only had pebbles of various sizes. Those pebbles were not the blue color ones she used to see, but they were dark blue, bluish-green, and other intermediate colors.
