Gu Xijiu followed Di Fuyi out of the mansion.
To fool their enemies, Di Fuyi and Gu Xijiu treated each other rather intimately the past few days. They either held each other's hand, or Gu Xijiu would place her hand on his waist when they walked together. Since they had swapped bodies, it looked as though Di Fuyi was holding Gu Xijiu's waist.
Perhaps, it was because they had done it so often in the past few days, Gu Xijiu subconsciously wanted to place her hand on his waist again when they walked out the mansion. However, she quickly withdrew her hand when she almost touched him as she suddenly realized something was wrong.
Di Fuyi probably did not notice as he continued walking as though nothing happened.
A big moon was hanging in the sky that night. It was so massive that onlookers could notice a few grey pits on its surface. Gu Xijiu realized Di Fuyi was bringing her to wander by the brook. The water was flowing with a soothing sound, and the maple leaves on both sides of the streams fell on the ground gently. They also dropped into the river and floated away naturally with the water.
Gu Xijiu felt that the scene was very familiar and recalled the experience she had with The Lord. She was shocked when she remembered The Lord! It felt like the fragrance of The Lord smelled similar to Di Fuyi's!
Of course, it was not identical, but it should be from the same manufacturer. Did her sense of smell suddenly malfunction? Or did Celestial Master Zuo have a particularly special relationship with The Lord?
Di Fuyi was an expert in disguising himself, and he could play many different roles, so did that mean he also impersonated The Lord before? Perhaps, The Lord she met earlier was him? She was shocked by her own thought.
How could it be!? He was not supposed to be brave enough to fake The Lord's identity even if The Lord liked him. That would be a great sin! He might be decapitated, or have his entire family killed! None of his servants in the Fucang Hall could escape.
But... Uhh, oh right. Gu Xijiu remembered she had smelled the same fragrance from Rong Jialuo too. And also the person who claimed he wanted to get revenge on her at the riverside.
Gosh! Was her nose spoilt? Or was there something big behind it?
Gu Xijiu was idling while she was thinking. Di Fuyi, who was walking ahead of her, suddenly paused. All of a sudden, Gu Xijiu crashed into his back! She quickly stepped back and rubbed her nose as she hit her nose on his firm back.
"Absent-minded again?" Di Fuyi turned around and looked at her. He sighed, "You're always absent-minded when you're with me huh? What's on your mind?"
Gu Xijiu asked, "Did we hate each other before?"
Di Fuyi frowned and looked at her, "What do you mean?"
Gu Xijiu continued to ask, "Did you pretend to be Rong Jialuo and come to the General's residence?"
Di Fuyi suddenly recalled that he would have forgotten about the past if she did not mention it to him. Initially, he just found her interesting and wanted to tease her and play with her as the price of her taking away his robe in the cave. However... However, what was wrong with the little girl? How did she suddenly talk about that? It was too random!
"Why are you asking me in this way?" Di Fuyi did not answer her question but questioned her instead.
Gu Xijiu twitched her lips, "You just need to tell me yes or no"
Di Fuyi paused a second and replied, "Yes."
Gu Xijiu was shocked, "Why? I haven't claimed I was a heaven's gift disciple that time. Why why did you investigate me?"
Di Fuyi sighed, but he could not tell her the truth. Thus, he used a more reasonable excuse, "You were quite special that time, so I decided to take a look."
