Venerated Venomous Consort Chapter 2437
They were very unhappy with Di Fuyi’s actions and found him too arrogant. He was too disrespectful to the governor, the men thought.
Yun Yanli came out of his carriage and saw exactly what Di Fuyi was doing. However, he was not quite bothered. With a smile, he proceeded to Zhu Duqing’s carriage as planned.
His smile clearly showed that he would not fall for his trap. Di Fuyi could annoy him as much as he wanted, but he was not going to give him the chance to convince Gu Xijiu.
Yun Yanli’s men looked at one another in consternation. If the governor was unbothered, perhaps, they should not care about it, too. Therefore, everyone pretended that they saw nothing.
Gu Xijiu looked at the carriage that had taken on an entirely new look. Di Fuyi had publicly removed every piece from Yun Yanli.
“It is not the time to trigger Yun Yanli. Are you sure that he will not be irritated by your little affectations?” She was quite puzzled by Di Fuyi’s intention.
Di Fuyi let out a graceful smile as he explained confidently, “Don’t worry. The more I behave so, the more unlikely he will attack. He must be thinking that I am doing all this to irritate him and trigger him to act out of exasperation, thus revealing his true self in front of you.”
Gu Xijiu said nothing more. She knew that Di Fuyi was indeed a man with a plan. More accurately speaking, he was a child with a plan. She observed him and was relieved to see that his complexion had slowly returned. It seemed like the Purple Cloud Mushrooms were useful after all.
She then proceeded to read his pulse and could immediately tell that there was a strong flow of spiritual power circulating in his body. Delighted, she quickly put him down on the cushion and examined the open wound on his chest. The wound was starting to heal, and everything seemed to be going right. It was, indeed, a great sign.
Relieved, she looked up and caught Di Fuyi gazing at her. There was a complicated look in his eyes as he stayed still and well behaved.
“Why are you looking at me like that?” She then helped him put his robes back on properly.
Di Fuyi pulled her close and lay her down on his body. “I thought you were going to do something dirty to me.”
“You have overthought!”
She decided to offer him the entire bottle of Purple Cloud Mushroom pills. “I can see that your complexion is slowly returning and that your wound is healing just fine, which proves that my pills are working. Would you like some more?”
Di Fuyi planted a soft kiss on her forehead. “Do you have many of these pills?” He was perplexed by her generous offer.
“Unfortunately, I don’t. These pills are very precious. I have only encountered these Purple Cloud Mushrooms once in my entire life and collected them all. I tried to find these mushrooms again, but my efforts were in vain.”
She had offered him the entire bottle without any hesitation.
“Are you giving all of the pills to me?”
“Yes,” Gu Xijiu did not hesitate. She always felt that these pills belonged to him. Giving him the bottle was only a gesture of returning something that was always meant to be his.
Her kind offer touched Di Fuyi. He took a careful look at the content of the bottle. There were about 50 or 60 pills left. Each pill was encircled in a glistening layer of purple light that made it look as though it was glowing.
Di Fuyi took about half of the bottle and returned the rest to Gu Xijiu. “It will be a waste if I take them all. You should keep the rest. These pills will probably help you as well. When there is time, I will cover you while you slowly take these pills and meditate.”
Gu Xijiu thought about his proposition before accepting the bottle. “All right!” She knew that she needed to restore her spiritual power as well. These pills would surely work for her. When she had regained her memory, she had thought about consuming the pill to restore her power. However, there was hardly any time for her to rest and meditate.
Di Fuyi proceeded to swallow a dozen pills at once. Like before, these pills melted away in his stomach almost instantaneously. But this time, Di Fuyi could finally feel the warm sensation in his veins. It was a rather pleasant feeling. The wound on his chest did not hurt quite as much after the pills had dissolved in his stomach. Meanwhile, a warm stream of energy circulated his entire body, making him feel as if he had soaked his body in a hot spring.
