Mrs. Luo greeted Celestial Master Zuo and Overlord Long first and then thanked Gu Canmo for his invitation. Finally, she looked at "Gu Xijiu."
Her eyes were getting teary at this point. Although she was smiling, her eyes were all red. She looked at "Gu Xijiu," and then walked over and said, "My daughter I am your mother" She was trembling and seemed like she was ecstatic and sad at the same time.
Di Fuyi developed a mighty headache when he saw her walking towards him. He tried to take a glance at Gu Xijiu to see what to do. Gu Xijiu was smiling at him, and she looked like she was happy for him. Indeed, Gu Xijiu was very excited! She could not wait to see how Di Fuyi would handle the situation.
It was very rare to see him embarrassed. Thus Gu Xijiu was pleased with this arrangement. Of course, she also took a few glances at Mrs. Luo. After all, she was the mother of the original Gu Xijiu. She was a legend as well as a tragic character who committed suicide. Gu Xijiu still had high respects for her.
However, she had no other feeling towards her. She was not the real Miss Gu who used to get bullied in the house of General Gu. She only borrowed this body. Besides, even if the original Miss Gu was here, she might not have much feeling towards Mrs. Luo too. After all, they were separated when she was still an infant. Moreover, deep inside the heart of the original Gu Xijiu, her mother was the main culprit who caused her misfortune.
Even if the lady in red were Gu Xijiu's actual mother, it required daily interaction to deepen the relationship between them. Although they had the same blood in their body, they were not close to each other. Gu Xijiu tried to figure out how the original Gu Xijiu would feel but she found that she was not able to dig out any feelings since she was now occupying a different body. She suddenly realized that it was not too bad to have her body swapped. At least she did not have to face such an embarrassing scene.
Gu Xijiu stared at Di Fuyi and was interested to see how he would deal with it. Would he stand up and hug the lady? Or would he accuse her, "Who are you? You are not my mother! If you are my mother, why did you let me get bullied in General Gu's house for so many years!?" Gu Xijiu had thought of all the possible responses that the original Gu Xijiu would have in her mind. She waited to see which one Di Fuyi would use to respond to the mother.
The story of Mrs. Luo tragic death was very well-known in this continent. Almost everyone knew about it. Now that she suddenly appeared in public, everyone was also very interested to see how Gu Xijiu would react. Therefore, all attention in the hall had fallen on the two of them.
To Gu Xijiu's surprise, Di Fuyi did not use any of the possibilities that Gu Xijiu had in her mind. He just laughed and raised a wine glass. He asked calmly, "Should I call you Mrs. Luo or Mrs. Gu?"
Luo Xinglan was stunned, "Little Xijiu"
Di Fuyi smiled, "When you decided to jump down from the hill, I guess you decided to separate with General Gu. I guess you might not want to have any connections with General Gu anymore so it would be better to call you Mrs. Luo."
Luo Xinglan looked at her "daughter" in front of her. Her lips were trembling when she replied, "Alright"
Di Fuyi poured wine into his glass and toasted to her, "Let's have a drink and cheers." He was calm and treated her like a friend.
Luo Xinglan's tears had burst out from her eyes. She tried to calm down and quietly raised her glass. She replied, "Alright." She finished the entire drink in one go!
