It was difficult to know the truth. After all, Di Fuyi was a psycho, and he had previously impersonated Si Chen. However, there was no reason for him to play different roles just to trick her this time. Especially since he would be impersonating The Lord.
Perhaps, those abnormal aliens always had a few similarities. The Lord and Di Fuyi were very similar hobbies and interests. Gu Xijiu was probably overthinking.
The more she thought about it, the more entangled everything became. Gu Xijiu knocked her head and decided to stop. She proceeded to walk around the house.
Eh, where did the three of them go?
"Knock! Knock!" A sound came from the door. Gu Xijiu opened the door and saw the three of them standing outside.
The mussel was wet, and Lu Wu was in Wind Caller's sac with its little head exposed.
"Master, we ain't sleeping in your house again because we have built our own shelter." The mussel shook its body and reported. It pointed at the pond, "I'm staying there." And then, it pointed at the pavilion in the pond, "They stay there."
It was a surprise that three of them suddenly became so understanding. Gu Xijiu frowned. In fact, she did not plan to let them stay in the same room together with her. However, the mussel and Lu Wu were so clingy and kept crying pitifully in front of her. Thus, she just let them be and kept them in the room as though she was keeping puppies and kittens.
Now, she finally felt relieved as they took the initiative to move out. She need not worry that the three of them would mess up her room again when she was away.
The Lord had chased them away without her permission, and Gu Xijiu did not feel good about despite understanding his intention.
The Lord was known to be obsessed with cleanliness; he definitely would not allow his disciple to mess up their room as they were carrying his image. Two of her "pets" were shedding every day. Hence, she was a maid who cleaned their fur every day. While the mussel was an aquatic living organism, there was always a few saliva drools wherever it slept. Therefore, she had a lot of extra work to do serving the three babies.
Gu Xijiu paid a visit to their new homes following their lead. It was better than she expected as their shelters suited their nature. Only Lu Wu required some time to adapt as it used to sleep beside Gu Xijiu. Its eyes were teary, and its nine tails were wagging as though it was asking for a warm hug from Gu Xijiu.
"Master, they are majestic beings, and they are meant to train their spiritual power and their sense of aggression. Only then can they come to your aid in the future. You can't pamper them as though they're your puppies." The Firmament Stone spoke in a serious tone.
Gu Xijiu did not reply, but she understood the message the Firmament Stone was trying to convey. This reminded her of the Tibetan Mastiff which fought with wolves on the grassland and battled in the snowstorm to be powerful enough to fight the enemies together with its master. They should not be kept in the house and fed with good food every day. Otherwise, they would be destined to be a display pet.
Even though she understood this, that did not mean she would not pity them when she saw the three of them living outside. Perhaps she still remembered the original form of the mussel which was a little kid and Lu Wu who was still a cute baby. She had a hard time to let go. Gu Xijiu did feel lonely sometimes and hoped to have some companions.
