Gu Xijiu was gasping as she was sitting by his side. She was so scared that the anxiety felt as though a strong wave from the sea was trying to engulf her. Even her fingers were shaking.
Suddenly, she seemed to have recalled something and quickly jumped up from the ground!
Long Siye! He was the master physician, and he knew the magic of gathering souls. Perhaps, he could save Di Fuyi!
She was ready to run. However, she suddenly noticed that Di Fuyi was tugging on her wet dress.
She was delighted!
Was he still alive?
She quickly took a look at Di Fuyi's eyes, but they were still tightly closed. His hand was holding the edge of her dress, and Gu Xijiu could see that his fingers were pale.
Was he a living corpse!?
Subconsciously, she placed her hand on his wrist, and she finally could feel his pulse. She then looked at him and started pondering. Bastard! Was he pretending to die? Did he just "wake up" when he knew that she wanted to leave?
She took a closer look at him. Although his face was still as pale as before, he was breathing now! His eyelashes flickered slightly, and water droplets rolled down his cheeks. Apparently, he was awake, but he did not want to open his eyes. Did he want to fool her?
She pulled her dress away and smiled evilly, "Hey, are you alive or not?" He did not open his eyes but grabbed her dress tightly instead. Gu Xijiu was mad and did not want to waste time with him. She used all her strength to pull her skirt away as she intended to leave.
Gu Xijiu's dress ripped, and a big piece of her clothing was gone! To make matters worse, she fell on to his body due to the strong force he exerted earlier. Her forehead crashed on to his chest as she fell into his arms. Di Fuyi groaned as he was in pain. Gu Xijiu felt dizzy as well.
If she was not mad earlier, now she was undoubtedly furious at him and quickly got up. Di Fuyi locked her in his arms, "Don't leave!" He said in a hoarse voice. As he spoke, a strong smell of alcohol spread out from his mouth. The air in the surroundings was contaminated as though a big container of wine spilled on the ground.
How much did he drink?
Gu Xijiu tried to push his arms away, "Hey! Let go!"
"Dont go, please?" He asked sincerely with a soft voice.
Gu Xijiu looked at his eyes which were finally open. His eyes were red, and it looked like he was suffering. Gu Xijiu had known him for quite a long time, but that was her first time seeing him behave this way. The mighty man looked like a weak child who could not find his way home.
"Alright, I wont leave, but you have to let go first" Gu Xijiu said.
She was still lying on his body. Gu Xijiu was shivering as it was quite breezy on the shore and both of their clothes were wet.
"Why didnt you want me?" Di Fuyi asked, but he did not let go of Gu Xijiu. His voice was extremely hoarse as he continued, "Im better than anyone else"
Gu Xijiu was speechless. Was this guy conscious of what he was saying?
"Celestial Master Zuo" Gu Xijiu tried to call him, "Are you talking to me?"
"Everything I've done is for your good Why Why don't you want me? Do you know it's killing me?" His lips were trembling, and he frowned. He was acting like a miserable child.
