The thing was, wasn't this phoenix a little too small?
The tiny phoenix rubbed his eyes sleepily and opened them, displaying a pair of beautiful eyes which shone like amethysts as he looked bewilderedly at Gu Ruoyun.
He then leaped off the woman's hand and fell to the ground. His body was then engulfed in a purple light as it grew longer and longer.
Not too long after that, the purple light disappeared and a little boy of around five to six years of age stood before Gu Ruoyun's eyes.
The little boy was dressed in purple robes and has a purple flame between his brows which set off his already mesmerizing features, making him look absolutely stunning. His skin was fair, tender and looked as soft as a baby's. His initially innocent-looking eyes looked demonic thanks to the purple color of his irises. His eyes were so beautiful that they tugged at one's heartstrings.
Gu Ruoyun stared at the little boy in purple robes in astonishment. Her eyes filled with hesitation, "Are you Zixie?"
"That's right, I'm currently a child."
The little boy nodded as he narrowed his beautiful amethyst eyes smilingly at Gu Ruoyun.
"Based on my observation, there's no mistake. You're indeed Zixie. However, do you still remember who I am?" Gu Ruoyun wrinkled her brows as her eyes fell upon the little boy.
I'm not sure if spiritual beasts do retain their past memories after death.
A demonic smile flashed across Zixie's eyes. Before Gu Ruoyun could react, he suddenly appeared right in front of her and without any warning, a pair of warm, thin lips touched the woman's face...
"What a sweet fragrance."
Zixie smiled, looking like a sinister demon before he then blinked and stared at Gu Ruoyun.
Gu Ruoyun's brain instantly froze. When she finally came to her senses, she immediately yanked Zixie by his robes and dangled him in the air before throwing him out the door. His little body coincidentally ended up crashing into Lingxiao who was on his way to give Gu Ruoyun a report.
Zixie had smashed into Lingxiao and caused him to fall to the ground. He rubbed his numb head as his face filled with suspicion, "This... What's going on? Eh? Why is this scent so familiar? You... Are you Lord Zixie?"
Lingxiao's expression changed greatly as he sensed the aura from the person in front of him. He then quickly backed away while staring fearfully at the tiny figure before him.
"Lord Zixie, you've hatched?"
Zixie furrowed his brows and a glint flashed in his purple eyes but he did not say much. His gaze fell upon Gu Ruoyun once again.
"Lingxiao, you've come just in time." Gu Ruoyun rubbed her forehead as she tried to stave off a headache, "What on earth is going on with Zixie? He has been reborn but I feel as if his personality has changed. Why is that?"
"This..." Lingxiao carefully glanced over at Zixie, "Master, Lord Zixie has only just hatched so he's still a child. His personality would be similar to a human child's so it's quite different from his personality as an adult. Even though powerful spiritual beasts are able to retain memories of their past life, since he has kind of shrunk, his reactions would definitely be very different from his adult form."
Gu Ruoyun's face turned dark. In other words, Zixie is now pretty much like a human child?
"When would he reach adulthood?"
Gu Ruoyun stroked her chin. She never expected that a newly-hatched Zixie would have powers at the rank of... A Martial Supreme?
No wonder the Ancient Divine Phoenix Zixie was addressed as the king of spiritual beasts, he truly was a king amongst spiritual beasts! Even in his childhood, he already possesses such great power. How powerful will he become once he reaches adulthood?
