Di Fuyi smiled, "Mrs. Luo, you are indeed straightforward! I would like to propose another toast."
Luo Xinglan did not seem to refuse the toast from her daughter and was delighted to empty her cup.
The crowd expected both Gu Xijiu and her mother to be choked with tears upon their reunion. Hence, the scene in front of them was not really what they had expected to witness. They were somehow disappointed.
Gu Canmo was a little disappointed as well. He suspected that something was not quite right with Gu Xijiu, but he could not pinpoint what was wrong. While he was lost in his own thoughts, "Gu Xijiu" used her facial expression to signal him, "Headmaster Gu, shouldnt we arrange a seat for Mrs. Luo?"
Gu Canmo cleared his throat, "Yes, yes, please arrange a seat for Mrs. Luo."
Initially, he arranged for Mrs. Luo to be seated next to Gu Xijiu so that both of them could engage in conversation. However, the signal from Gu Xijiu sent chills down his spine. He thus changed his mind and arranged for her to sit among other guests.
Gu Xijiu did not expect Di Fuyi to handle the situation with such great ease. She was thoroughly impressed by him. She directed an audio message to him, "Celestial Master Zuo, in my opinion, you are a little too distant towards Mrs. Luo. Do you think so?"
Di Fuyi looked at her with a faint smile, "It doesn't matter, you can treat her more warmly when get your body back." Gu Xijiu did not say anything further, as she could not actually be warm towards her "mother."
She looked at Luo Xinglan pitifully as she sat there with her back straight. She seemed like a strong woman, but probably one who made bad decisions. She married the wrong man and ruined her entire life. That included her daughters life too.
Her real daughter was long dead, and the current Gu Xijiu was no longer the one who was desperate for her mothers love. There was no turning back the clock. Gu Xijiu could not help but sigh. Di Fuyi directed an audio message back to her, "There is no need to sigh. Her life is actually going quite well."
"Hmm?" Gu Xijiu raised her eyebrows.
"Her brain was damaged when she jumped off the cliff so she cannot recall her past. Her senior fellow apprentice then rescued her. When she had fully recovered, they fell in love with each other and got married two years later. Her senior fellow apprentice was an illegitimate child of the overlord of the Wuwang clan. When he was critically ill, he agreed to acknowledge his child, as he had no other offspring. The man returned to Wuwang clan as the young overlord and officially took over the clan. Almost half a year later. Luo Xinglan was then the wife of the overlord. As Luo Xinglan had little contact with the outside world and her new husband barely spoke of her past, no one knew that she used to be the wife of Gu Xietian who jumped off the cliff. Both of them were very in love after getting married, and she gave birth to two sons. Before her husband passed away a few years ago, he decided to pass his position as overlord to Luo Xinglan, as he loved his beloved wife dearly. Moreover, both of their sons were still young. Luo Xinglan is a true leader, as she has been able to manage the clan well for the past two years. She has truly become a heroine."
Gu Xijiu did not expect Luo Xinglan to end up like this. She certainly did not expect Di Fuyi to be so well informed either. He knew more about Luo Xinglan than most private investigators.
When Luo Xinglan jumped off the cliff a few years ago, Gu Xietian searched for her thoroughly in every possible corner of the world but found nothing. No one would have expected her to become the wife of the overlord of the Wuwang clan and now even the overlord of the clan. No one would have known that she had already found a new family and even had children.
There was no way to tell how Gu Xietian would feel if he were to find out about it. The affairs of the world were unpredictable, and in this case undoubtedly erratic.
