It seemed inappropriate to bring the three young students along if the topic they discussed was only meant to be addressed among heaven's gift disciples.
Long Siye introduced the three of them, "They are students from Tianju Hall's Ziyun class. They are currently in the top class."
Before he finished his sentence, Qian Yueran laughed, "Brother Long, since when you have you been so close to your students?" He then switched his focus to Gu Xijiu and Lan Waihu, "These two girls look nice. They must be good students since they are Brother Long's favorites." However, Qian Lingyu was given a very different type of treatment, "But I never expected that my grandson could also be your favorite student"
Qian Lingyu was speechless. He was not afraid of anything or anyone, except for his grandfather - Qian Yueran. If he knew earlier that his grandpa would be here, he would not want to come to the second floor!
When Qian Yueran looked at Long Siyes expression, he knew what his struggle was and said, "It is rare for everyone to gather, come and join us! The three kids can come together too!" Since he had said so, it was not right for Long Siye to reject. He turned and asked Gu Xijiu, "Shall we join them?"
Gu Xijiu had no opposing opinion. The more people around, the better. Also, she had met Qian Yueran and Hua Wuyan before. Hence, she just nodded, "Okay."
Lan Waihu would always follow Gu Xijiu. Thus, she had no other opinion too. Only Qian Lingyu was worried. He felt that he would not be able to eat well, but he did not dare to speak up and just followed.
However, upon going up to the second floor, Gu Xijiu was filled with regret. Di Fuyi was here too! She did not interact with Celestial Master Zuo these days except during his lessons. Most of the time when she met him, it was just an ordinary greeting like meeting an acquaintance. Even in his class, Di Fuyi would address questions to almost all students in his class except her.
Students always liked to gossip. They would speak about how Gu Xijiu had been so close with Di Fuyi in the past. They had been hanging around each other all the time as though they were a couple. In the end, it was all just an act. Due to their ability to fool everyone, students liked to observe the interactions between Di Fuyi and Gu Xijiu these days. It was a popular topic in the town.
Gu Xijiu was already the center of attention in the Ziyun class. But after Di Fuyi came to teach the course, the attention grew even worse. Every student suddenly became Sherlock Holmes when analyzing Gu Xijius every move. It made Gu Xijiu feel pressured when she attended each class.
In Gu Xijiu's own opinion, she felt that it was okay for Di Fuyi to treat her this way. This was also what she hoped for in fact. She had decided to be with Long Siye so if she continued mingling with Di Fuyi it would create a lot of unnecessary troubles.
Now this man finally decided to let her go and no longer brought her any trouble; she should have felt relieved. Rationally, everything was on the right track, however emotionally it was a different story.
Gu Xijiu was getting uncomfortable when she attended his classes. Sometimes habit was a terrible thing. For example, she had stayed with him for two weeks. Every morning when she woke up, Di Fuyi was the first person she saw. Even if he was using her body at that time, she knew that it was him. She was so used to his presence.
