Her master was entirely drenched, but he still just sat there.
Gu Bailu wept. It was just like what she dreamed. Her master was attacked by the tide every day.
“Master.” Gu Bailu pushed Feng Qingtian aside and ran to the old man.
Could her master still be alive after being hit by the ocean waves every day?
Gu Bailu hurriedly grabbed his wrist and took out silver needles, about to perform first aid.
She had barely raised the silver needles, when her master suddenly opened his eyes. “What are you doing? Are you trying to kill me?”
Gu Bailu was stunned. “Master, you’re still alive?”
“What are you talking about? As a fortune teller, I’ve estimated that I still have a thousand years to live. Why would I be dead?” The old man got to his feet.
He seemed stiff after not moving for such a long time.
“Master, why were your muscles rigid, like…”
Like he was dead.
“Because I was meditating.”
Gu Bailu wouldn’t be tricked so easily. Her master couldn’t be very healthy after being tortured by tides every day.
“Master, you really can’t get out of here?”
“Didn’t I already tell you last time? Why are you here again? Have you found the Sky Splitting Mirror?” Her master sat down again after stretching for a bit.
Gu Bailu leaned in close and sat down next to him. “I dreamed that you were suffering, so I came. I’ve found one piece of the Sky Splitting Mirror.”
“This isn’t suffering at all. You can only keep your mind pure if you’re washed by the tides day and night.” The old man wasn’t bothered. “Don’t you know that your dreams are a manifestation of your subconscious fears?”
He then looked at Feng Qingtian, who had remained silent. “You’re indulging her too much. You could’ve spent the time searching for the Sky Splitting Mirror. One piece isn’t good enough.”
Feng Qingtian gazed at Gu Bailu affectionately, not affected by what the old man said at all.
“I was wrong. I’ll work harder.” Gu Bailu didn’t dare argue with her master, and admitted her mistake.
“Go back now. The more you visit me, the more likely I’ll be exposed.” The old man didn’t seem to be in a good temper.
Gu Bailu looked at him, and then at the ocean waves. “Can’t you train in a higher location, master?”
“As I said, this is meant to help cleanse my mind. If I can’t take it any longer, I’ll naturally switch spots. You go away. I need to talk to this guy in private.”
Gu Bailu looked at Feng Qingtian strangely. Why did her master want to speak to him alone again?
It happened last time when they met, and he told just Feng Qingtian everything.
But she didn’t dare disobey her master, and simply stepped aside.
Miyasi greeted her and asked, “What did our master tell you?”
“What else? He asked me to get the hell out of here. He doesn’t want to see me.”
Gu Bailu was slightly depressed. She had always loved her master.
He was her only family member now, and the man she trusted the most.
She wouldn’t be scared if Feng Qingtian abandoned her, but she was scared of her master doing so.
Her master might be stern, but he loved her as much as her parents did.
