"Follow me; Ive some questions for you." The Lord said as he flew toward the river. Gu Xijiu followed at the back. It was late spring; there were a lot of flowers blooming coupled with plenty of butterflies.
Gu Xijiu was walking along the shore together with The Lord. He seemed to be pondering something but always remained silent. Gu Xijiu slowed down and walked behind him.
A moment later, The Lord looked at her and asked, "Are you trying to escort me?"
Gu Xijiu was silent. She thought that was supposed to be the right etiquette while walking together with elders. Since he was not happy, she quickly walked further in front as though she was taking the lead.
She took two steps further and walked in front of him.
"Have you no manners!? Why are you walking ahead of me?"
Why is he so fussy!?
Gu Xijiu had a headache. She would have kicked that person into the water if it were someone else. Unfortunately, the fussy one was The Lord. Sigh. She decided to endure.
She was not allowed to walk ahead or behind him. As a result, she decided to walk side by side with The Lord.
After walking for a short while, The Lord took a glimpse of her, "I think it's time for you to change. Your clothes are smelly"
Gu Xijiu was not a shy person. However, she felt like crying now! She had been locked in a jail cell for three days, and three nights. Although The Lord was kind and rescued her, she did not have time to change at all. She smelled an awful scent on her body and could not wait just to have a good bath.
"Youre my disciple, so you better take care of my image. A clean appearance and outfit is a fundamental requirement, but now youre messy and dirty"
Gu Xijiu finally got pissed off! Was he done with his criticisms? She wanted to show her dissatisfaction; however, she tried to suppress her anger when she considered his identity.
"Xijiu also wishes to be clean, but I've just come out from jail not long ago and didn't have time to clean myself. Can you stay here for a short while I find a place to clean myself?"
"This place is quiet enough." The Lord pointed at the small pond slightly further ahead of them. The pond was not big, but the water was crystal clear. Besides that, this place was on the outskirts and was quite well hidden. It was considered a nice place to bathe as nobody would come at the moment.
However, since The Lord was just standing there, how could she bathe?
She hesitated, and The Lord got the message and asked, "Are you afraid Ill peep at you?"
Gu Xijiu immediately said, "My Lord, you overthink. You're such a great person, how would you peep at an underage kid when she bathes? I'm just afraid someone else would see this scene and think inappropriately."
"Unaged kid?" The Lord repeated, but it was difficult to identify his expression.
Gu Xijiu did not understand the reason he repeated what she said, so she pondered and explained, "Uhm, I'm sorry. I think I am considered as an elementary junior. I'm your disciple, so I should be your elementary junior, a very very young elementary junior"
The Lord was the God of this mainland, and no one knew how many thousands of years he has been alive. While Gu Xijiu's body was only 14 years old, there was a huge gap between both of their ages! Almost everyone in the world was his juniors. Gu Xijiu felt that The Lord would be happy with her reply as she noticed the cold breeze had turned warm.
The Lord waved his sleeve, and Gu Xijiu's vision suddenly turned blurry and then she instantly fell into the pond! While she was thrown into the water, The Lord also said, "Since you're a super young elementary junior, what's there for you to be shy when you bathe in front of me? You'd better clean yourself properly!"
