Venerated Venomous Consort Chapter 1870
Gu Xijiu was surprised. Without a second thought, she hit the rock again with her weapon along the path of her blood. It was rather easy, this time, like cutting soft tofu. The rock was starting to take a boxy shape. Finally, she exerted her force for the last time.
One side of the rock was cut open, revealing what was inside. Within it lay the crimson box. She could finally see the shape of the box. The box accentuated a unique, vintage design, and looked heavy. On its cover, there was an emerald of lively luminosity.
She finally found the box! Gu Xijiu was relieved to know that her trip was not in vain. She put the box away in her storage bag. Another look at the rock reminded her of a phrase. ‘Fate has brought the lovers together, with a love that lasts for an eternity. When the love comes to an unpalatable end, one’s heart must be buried away, deeply in a sealed box.’
The box had indeed been buried here. Did it end up here because of a heartbreak? Gu Xijiu pondered for a moment at the scene. The place was burning with extreme temperatures after the rock had been shattered. Now that Gu Xijiu had found what she desired, she was reluctant to stay any longer. Swiftly, she exited.
She returned to her bedroom, sitting and studying the box attentively. The box was considerably light for her. She twisted and turned the box several times, but failed to figure out the opening mechanism.
She shook the box to hear what was inside, but no sound was heard. She tried to recall the dream again. The man in her dream held a bracelet in his hand, while the man in her vision held a handful of shattered pieces instead. Did the bracelet become shattered?
Was the box carrying the pieces of the bracelet? If there were pieces in the box, surely there would be noise, but she could not hear anything in it.
Gu Xijiu was an expert in unlocking different mechanisms. However, it was different this time. After hiding in her bedroom for a couple of weeks, she still could not find out a way to open the box. There did not seem to be an opening.
She tried many different ways, even with the help of the golden ruler. The box remained uncut. She clearly saw that the white shadow had opened the box and put some pieces away in it. Why couldn’t she open it now?
She was circling the box, helplessly trying to figure a way. A voice suddenly spoke in her head, “The box is a heavenly secret box. Only the destined one can open it. You should not waste any more time.”
Gu Xijiu finally heard the voice again, from the messenger of the heavenly secret with a voice of indistinguishable gender.
“Who is the destined one?” Gu Xijiu was eager to find out.
“It is a quest for you to find out.” The voice then continued, “It is the only way.”
“How does the person look like? Where should I start?”
“What is the person’s identity?”
Gu Xijiu continued to bombard the messenger with a series of question, but the voice was gone again, obviously refusing to answer her inquiries. Gu Xijiu took a look at the box that had been bothering her for a while and decided to change the direction of her search. She should start looking for the destined one.
The destined one should be the white man in her vision.
Although she had not seen his face clearly, she could tell that the man was tall and possibly attractive. Moreover, he seemed like a powerful person. A man as such should not be a difficult find.
After so long, Gu Xijiu finally found a new direction for her life. She finally felt more alive. However, before she could embark on her journey, Mu Feng came to report, “My Lord, the Feixing Kingdom has recently welcomed the arrival of a new prince. The prince is quite special. As soon as he was born, the room shone in glistening red light. Many magpies circled in the air as if forecasting good news.”
