Chapter 2257: Too Weak To Suffer The Impact

Even Yun Yanli failed to notice her presence. Luckily, she was able to witness an interesting scene- at least she knew that the little one from the Tree Palace was one of his followers. The Palace Master wanted to use the children as one of the ingredients in her alchemy. Fortunately, Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi managed to put an end to it.
After her escape, the little Palace Master remained hidden. All beings from the three worlds had come together in the search for her whereabouts but failed to locate her. It turned out that the Shura World was her perfect hideaway.
Gu Xijiu was convinced that the Shura World was their base. Furthermore, it could not be a coincidence that a strange combination of circumstances had sent her here.
“Master, it is all a tragedy. It serves as a punishment for your breach of mission from the heavenly law, thus taking your memory away and sending you here,” the Firmament Stone analyzed the situation to her. “Please do not repeat the same mistake by breaching the confidentiality of your future mission,” it added with a touch of grievance.
Gu Xijiu dismissed it right away. “I was desperate. Otherwise, I would have to bear with the reputation of robbing a child from his cradle. How would I know that the heavenly law would be so cruel to me?”
The thought of Di Fuyi resurfaced. Surely, she also recalled the night that they had spent together. Her face darkened as she murmured, “It seems like I have turned the rumor into reality by mistake!” She was indeed a cradle robber. Moreover, she was the one who made the move!Never could she have expected that she would behave so wildly without her memories of the past. If Shen Jiuli and his wife found out about what she had done to their son, they surely would not let her live another day. After all, their son was only eight years old.
To be sexually engaged with someone who was still at an inappropriate age would very likely be punished with the death penalty, even in the modern days with a more open-minded society. However, what troubled her the most was the unintentional betrayal of her love in the Saha World. It was, indeed, a struggle.
Gu Xijiu was stressed, so much so that her temples were lined with prominent veins. The Firmament Stone did not quite understand her almost inaudible utterance, as it had just come back alive. “Ah? What has become a reality?”
Soon, it began to have a clue. After all, it had been around in the world long enough to understand the intimacy in a relationship. “Master, have you and Shen Nianmo had intimacy?” It was eager to know.
Gu Xijiu did not know what to answer. She acquiesced in her silence. The excitement of the Firmament Stone started to bloom. “It is true, then. Master, you really are good with relationships, regardless of age.”
The last comment had already got on Gu Xijiu’s nerves. She gave the Firmament Stone a slap and protested, “Regardless of age? Am I old enough for such comment? I am only slightly more than two hundred years old. In heaven, I can be considered as a teenager.”
The Firmament Stone was too weak to suffer the impact. “Master, be gentle! I am very weak. I cannot be treated so violently,” it cried out.
Gu Xijiu sat down with her legs folded. She seemed troubled.
“Master, are you upset about what happened between you and Shen Nianmo?”
Gu Xijiu threw a look at it and added, “Should I be upset? My initial plan was to preserve my virginity for the sake of Huang Tu. I ended up losing all my integrity because of the child, Di Fuyi. How am I supposed to face Huang Tu when he returns in the future?”
It was all about her honor. She used to be the Lord of the Saha World and prioritized her integrity and freedom; she traveled the three worlds without any worries and hardly followed social conventions. She enjoyed all that independence, but in the end, she turned out to be the pervert who had robbed the cradle of an eight-year-old child.
She blamed the incident on the heavenly law for leaving a stain on her good reputation. What consequence was she supposed to face in the future for what she had done to the child?
The Firmament Stone remained silent to process all the facts. It was a little impatient, but could not share the truth, for it knew everything about the entire sequence of events that had happened in her life. Thoughtfully, it agreed to give her some guidance.
