However… why could Gu Bailu?
Who was she, exactly?
If the Night Lotus had only one master, he would suspect that Gu Bailu was the woman he had known in his previous life.
However, he knew that she wasn’t, because the Night Lotus recognized Nan Ningxin.
It didn’t make mistakes.
Feng Qingtian looked at Nan Ningxin with complicated feelings.
He could hug and touch Nan Ningxin now, but he didn’t have any desire for her.
Nan Ningxin was even prettier than Gu Bailu thanks to the pills and tonics that she had taken while growing up.
But he couldn’t feel anything.
“Night Lotus, I raised you. Tell me what this is about,” Feng Qingtian said coldly.
The mist from the Night Lotus had disappeared, and the petals had stopped moving.
Feng Qingtian frowned and focused on healing Nan Ningxin’s soul.
As for the rest, he would figure it out sooner or later.
Gu Yunjing brought Gu Bailu to a bed of spiritual power in his palace.
The bed was connected to spiritual stones, and Gu Bailu became the focus of the spiritual power.
The bed was where Gu Yunjing cultivated.
No women had ever used it.
Gu Yunjing put Gu Bailu on the bed and wiped away a tear. He swore to the tear that he would never make Gu Bailu cry again.
He clenched his fists and injected his spiritual power into the spiritual stones.
It wasn’t until he was sweating in exhaustion that Gu Bailu finally woke up again.
“Where am I?” Gu Bailu remembered what happened, but she still hurt too much to move.
Gu Yunjing wiped his sweat. “You’re in my palace.”
Gu Bailu looked at him, and he was clearly weak. “Did you save me?”
“I said that I wouldn’t just stand by if you got hurt.” Gu Yunjing smiled at her.
He didn’t seem as proud as before, but much more feeble.
His weakness roused sympathy.
Gu Bailu would be lying if she said that she was unmoved. Whatever his purpose was, he had defended her sincerely.
“Why are you so nice to me?”
“Because I love you. Is that so hard to understand?” Gu Yunjing thought that he had been obvious enough, but the girl ignored him every time.
Gu Bailu was stunned. “Are you sure?”
Are you sure that you love me, and not Feng Qingtian?
“Why else do you think I started the garbage transformation project? It’s only meant to make you stronger.”
Although he could protect her, it was better to make her stronger so that she could do what she wanted on her own.
Gu Bailu was stunned. The confession came too abruptly.
“I didn’t know that I was so charming. Who says that I’m good for nothing?” Gu Bailu was happy after she thought it through.
It was always a delightful thing to be loved, especially by someone as remarkable as Gu Yunjing.
However, wasn’t he gay? Or was he bisexual?
Gu Yunjing touched her head. “Judging from your high spirits, your wounds are probably healed now.”
