It was indeed a good life for Luo Xinglan. What was more important than being in love? Her love story with General Gu was one that could not withstand the test of time. Fortunately, she had found someone who loved her and was willing to marry her in her desperate time of need. Their affections lasted until her husband's last breath.
Gu Xijiu could not help but glare at Di Fuyi, "You knew about her all this time, but you never said anything."
Nonchalantly, Di Fuyi replied, "It is unnecessary, she is not your real mother!" He was right.
Gu Xijiu stopped talking and took another sip of her tea. She felt a little troubled, as Di Fuyi's body could not consume any alcohol at the moment. She was only allowed to drink tea for the day. Fortunately, Celestial Master Zuo had always been a little odd, as he would only use his own cup and kettle no matter where he went. He would never drink something that was not his. Thus, no one would say a thing even if Gu Xijiu only drank her own tea.
As the ceremony began, Gu Xijiu was delighted to witness the celebrations of her adulthood. When a young lady reached a certain age, an elder, who would unquestionably be her mother, would give her a hairpin. If the mother were not around, another respected woman would take this role.
When the ceremony began, Little Fox and the other female students entered the hall with the necessary tools for this process to happen. Luo Xinglan cleaned her hands and started braiding the hair of her daughter. She owed her daughter a lot, so she wanted to make it up to her.
Di Fuyi directed another audio message to Gu Xijiu, "Little Xijiu, I do not wish for others to touch me. Can you be the one who braids my hair?"
Gu Xijiu was not convinced, "Why should I? People of different genders should keep a distance from one another."
"You have taken over my body, what distance is there? Quick! Would you like me to make such a request in front of all these people? You do realize that this is your body. If I made such a request, they would think it was Gu Xijiu who asked Celestial Master Zuo to braid her hair." Di Fuyi threatened her.
Gu Xijiu was speechless.
"If you refuse, you would be the one who is embarrassed. I would not be ashamed at all." Di Fuyi continued.
Gu Xijiu did not know what to say. She wished she had not heard him. After some considerations, Gu Xijiu threatened him harshly in return, "If you continue to talk in such a bad manner, I will go pole dancing in public with your body! I would not be the embarrassed one; it would be you!"
Di Fuyi stayed quiet for a while. Confused, he asked, "I know about dancing, but what exactly is pole dancing?"
"It is a very seductive way of dancing. Generally, women will dance around a metal pole in very sexy attires. Their moves are very slutty, sexy and seductive. Men are always very attracted to them." Gu Xijiu put in extra effort to explain the effects that pole dancing would have on Di Fuyi's reputation. She then continued, "If you threaten me any further, I will go out and dance!"
It would be such a horrifying scene to witness Celestial Master Zuo pole dancing in public. Di Fuyi took another pause before asking, "Do you dance?"
"I do! I dance well!"
Di Fuyi smiled, "Very well." He did not continue any further.
Gu Xijiu was puzzled by his response. Fortunately, he did not request for her to braid his hair anymore. Hence, she decided to move on from the topic. Little did she know the price that she would have to pay for her pole dancing ability. She wished to turn back the clock and prevent herself from explaining it to him in the first place.
