If she had a mirror with her, the first thing she would do was to take it out and have a look at herself to see what was really confusing him. Gu Xijiu touched her face intuitively and realized that there was nothing wrong. She frowned at him and asked, “Are you all right? I… Wait, you do not look very well!”
Gu Xijiu finally noticed his pale complexion that would occasionally flush crimson. Also, his forehead was drenched in sweat. Before she knew what to do, she immediately teleported to his side and grabbed his wrist. “Let me check on you!”
Di Fuyi stood frozen and did not resist. He looked at her, and all he saw was her thick lashes. He then took a look at her puckered lips and her little finger that would naturally point upward every time she read his pulse. It was really her! She had made it here, surprisingly.
It all happened so suddenly. Di Fuyi could not believe his eyes. At first, he thought that Yun Qingluo was finally smarter and managed to imitate all of Gu Xijiu’s little movements to look more convincing. After all, Yun Qingluo had singlehandedly created this illusion. Anything was possible right now.
As her soft fingers were placed gently on his wrist, he could feel his blood rushing in excitement. He wanted to hold her tightly in his arms; however, he needed to identify if she was really Gu Xijiu before making any approach.
“Gu Xijiu, when I was trapped in my father’s wizardry barrier many years ago, you visited me and released a ferocious leopard to attack me. We even fought, and my clothes were burned. In the end, I only had my underwear,” he slowly described, while gazing at her intensely.
Gu Xijiu was reading his pulse when he started reminiscing the past. She did not feel that it was the right time to do so, however. Was something wrong with his memory?
Gu Xijiu did not look up at him. “You did not get the facts right. The creature that I released was actually a black python. I remember it clearly because the python was the one that I personally captured. Also, when you lost all of your clothes, you were still wearing a band that managed to cover your tummy. It was not your underwear,” she explained.
After Gu Xijiu managed to assess his condition, she finally looked up and met his big, shiny eyes. Her heart raced a little. It was all involuntary. All she had done was correct a couple of facts, so she did not understand why he had to stare at her so intensely as if he had just hit the jackpot.
From his pulse, she could tell that he was poisoned. Could the toxins have affected his emotions? He seemed to struggle to express himself. This poison was also new to Gu Xijiu, so she needed to find out more about it in order to help him. She asked, “Which parts of your body are in pain?”
All of a sudden, he gripped her wrist tightly and pulled her into his arms. He pulled her so hard that she almost hit her nose on his chest.
“Ah, what are you trying to do?” Gu Xijiu did not see it coming. Desperately, she tried to break free from his embrace. However, he did not intend to let her go. He tightened his arms around her as if he had just found his savior. “Xijiu, help me,” he whispered into her ear. She could clearly feel his warm breaths.
He could finally be sure about her identity. He had never told anyone about that particular incident, not even his parents, as it was not something he wanted to share. Only the two of them knew about it. Hence, he had no intention of holding back his desires any longer. He had all the reasons he needed to be with her.
“Xijiu, I am not feeling well.” His voice was trembling and full of pity.
Gu Xijiu was instantly overwhelmed by her maternal instinct.
