Bai Yin froze. She looked absolutely full of rage and hatred, almost as if Gu Ruoyun had seen right through her.
For twenty years, she had always remained quietly by the Grand Lord's side and has carefully concealed her feelings and conflicts from him because she understood that the Grand Lord loves the Madam deeply. If he ever found out about her feelings for him, he would have chased her out of the Red Lotus Territory.
As such, she had buried her feelings into the deepest recesses of her heart and used the Madam's name to fight for justice and get rid of women who harbored any intentions towards the Grand Lord! True enough, not only did the Grand Lord did not only not punish her, but he praised her as well.
Now, this woman has actually pierced through my true intentions!
I had got rid of those women not for the Madam's sake but for my own!
The Madam has been missing for so many years. No one knows if she's even alive and perhaps she's not even on this earth anymore. If this was the case, he will forget about that woman sooner or later. By then, my efforts in staying by his side for such a long time and silently giving so much to him for so many years, well, any man would be moved by my actions.
Besides, the Grand Lord was not a person with a heart of steel. He was simply too devoted to the Madam. If the Madam was no longer alive, how could a man who only puts up a cold, hard-hearted front but is soft-hearted deep down bear to leave a woman feeling dejected over him?
When that time comes, I can tell the Grand Lord of my love for him as well as offer my company and devotion to him.
Gu Ruoyun glanced at Bai Yin who was now immersed in her own imagination and said nothing more. She turned around and headed towards her tent, slowly disappearing under the clear and cold moonlit sky...
In the wide tent, a young boy dressed in purple robes was sitting on the side of the bed. He swung his legs back and forth and smiled as he watched Gu Ruoyun undress.
"What are you doing out here?" Gu Ruoyun raised an eyebrow, "I want to rest so you better go back into the Ancient Divine Pagoda."
Xiao Zixie blinked as an evil and impish smile flashed on his adorable face.
"I want to sleep with you."
Gu Ruoyun's expression immediately turned black. She rejected him without any courtesy, "No!"
Xiao Zixie jumped from the bed and threw his soft, cotton-candy-like body into Gu Ruoyun's arms. He lifted his large eyes which were glistening with tears and stared pitifully up at Gu Ruoyun.
"I don't want to stay in the Ancient Divine Pagoda, I want to sleep with you."
"Zixie!" Gu Ruoyun gritted her teeth and called out the little boy's name.
"I'm not Zixie now, I'm Xiao Zixie." The little man cocked his head to one side and stared evilly at Gu Ruoyun. He then added, "I'm at childhood stage so I'm still a child!"
Gu Ruoyun's expression grew increasingly ugly. She did not care if this phoenix was now at the adult stage or childhood stage. After all, Zixie in the past had left a deep impression on her. Even with this smooth and immature little face, she could not help but remember that handsome and demonic man.
Gu Ruoyun yanked the little boy up in the air with one hand and spoke threateningly, "I'm giving you a choice; do you want to return to the Ancient Divine Pagoda on your own or do you want me to throw you back in?"
Xiao Zixie pouted and replied pitifully, "I'll go, I'll go. Jeez, why are you so fierce?"
He then struggled for a bit and broke free from Gu Ruoyun's hand. He glanced pitifully at Gu Ruoyun again before turned into a wave of purple light and disappearing before her very eyes.
