The Evil Consort Above An Evil King Book 4 Chapter 2411
"When you went missing, I never stopped looking for you for the entire year. Did you know that I had been to almost every corner of the Shura World? I entered each path with hope that simply turned into disappointment every time I left a city. Did you know how difficult it was for me to come here and look for you in the Devil Kingdom? We finally met after so long, and the first thing that you said to me was, 'What are you doing here?' You even said that it was over between us. You treated Yun Qingluo with care and pampered her in every way possible. I could see that very clearly. Obviously, I thought you did not want me anymore."
Those sorrowful moments reemerged, so she had to hold back the tears in her eyes. "It was you who changed your mind first. How could you blame it one me? Di Fuyi, you cannot be so unreasonable."
She then raised her hand to wipe away the tears that streamed down her cheeks. "I let you go because I want to make things easier for you. I only want you to be happy."
It was evident that she cared very much about him. She only wanted him to live a happy and blissful life, which was why she had to let him go. She even tried to save Yun Qingluo despite losing out on the love of her life to that woman. Surely that showed how unconditional her love was toward Di Fuyi. How could he be so unreasonable?
If Gu Xijiu were an ordinary woman, she would probably just hit him the chest at that point. However, being the extraordinary person that she was, she wanted to kick Di Fuyi really hard right to show her resentment toward his actions. She wanted to make sure that he knew what she had been through for him. However, because he was still suffering from the love potion, so she decided to save the kicks for later.
"Xijiu, your love is my biggest fulfillment!" Di Fuyi disregarded her resistance and pulled her into his arms once again. "You are the only one that I have ever loved, no one else. Yun Qingluo saved my life, so I treated her like a sister in return. We have never shared any form of intimacy."
Gu Xijiu was stunned by his comments. Could she believe what he said? She had seen and heard many things that were the opposite of what he claimed to have said. Furthermore, he led her to believe that those rumors were true.
"Xijiu, you cannot judge the situation solely based on what you see. Sometimes, what you see may not necessarily be the truth. Perhaps, it is all but a show that is intended to deceive its viewers. You need to feel it with your heart and analyze the situation accordingly," Di Fuyi got to the bottom of it. He knew exactly what she was thinking of at that moment.
Gu Xijiu remained silent. By that response, Di Fuyi knew that she was finally listening and was a little relieved. "The poison that she made was one of a kind. We needed the blood from her heart to entice the Silver Ring Crocodile, and we needed her alive. She was brought here to make amends for her wrongdoings by helping you create the cure," he added.
Gu Xijiu was shocked. She gazed at him in astonishment. Was Yun Qingluo only here because they needed the blood from her heart? Was that the reason why Di Fuyi brought Yun Qingluo here?
Flashbacks started to hit her as she recalled the situation when Di Fuyi finally drove the crocodile into taking the bait. Yun Qingluo was all tied up by Di Fuyi as soon as she arrived. Her clothes were untidy, and her complexion was as pale as a sheet.
The situation back then was pretty dangerous. She had to focus on her fight with the crocodile, so she did not pay much attention to Yun Qingluo and thought that the crocodile injured her.
Now that she started thinking about it, the little details seemed to prove that Di Fuyi was actually telling the truth. She never knew that the blood from Yun Qingluo's heart was needed to bait the crocodile.
