She had merely lost the love of someone who didn’t belong to her in the first place.
It was already dawn. Gu Bailu returned to the Gu house with a teleportation rune.
She fell asleep, and woke up in the afternoon.
Remembering that it was the day when Ye Yunshu would run off with the little fox, she hurried off to the teahouse.
Since it was close to dinnertime, few people were in the teahouse.
The little fox greeted her when he saw her. “My lady, let’s go upstairs.”
He was acting abnormally and seemed worried, and didn’t dare look Gu Bailu in the eye.
Gu Bailu smiled. “What are you hiding from me?”
The little fox shook his head. “Nothing at all.”
Gu Bailu looked at him with the Heavenly Eye and discovered that he was recalling what the customers at the teahouse had talked about during the day.
Mostly, it was about how Prince and Princess Zi had asked for hot water for the whole of last night, how the new Princess Zi was more pampered than the previous Princess Zi had been, and how the former Princess Zi had been completely abandoned.
The little fox had intentionally ignored the more nasty remarks, so Gu Bailu didn’t sense them clearly.
Gu Bailu sighed. The downside of the Heavenly Eye was that she could see everything that was in the little fox’s head.
She didn’t really care about the whispers, but it was inevitable that it would affect her mood.
Thankfully, there was still Ye Yunshu, who could fix her unhappiness.
“Don’t care about what they say. It’s all true, anyway.” Gu Bailu patted his shoulder.
The little fox hugged her excitedly, “My lady, I’m here for you.”
Gu Bailu hurriedly pushed him away. “Don’t hug me. A man should always keep his distance from a woman.”
“You carried me out of the woods. Why can’t I hug you?”
“That’s different! You were an animal back then, and now you’re a man…”
She had barely said the words, when the man turned into a white fox, which raised its paws and looked at her pitifully.
It was completely unexpected.
Before she realized what was going on, the little fox dashed into her arms.
Gu Bailu could only rub its fur. “Little fox, winter is coming. Your fur would make the perfect scarf.”
The little fox shivered in her arms.
Can you not threaten me like that?
The little fox licked its way up Gu Bailu’s hands and arms, and all the way to her neck, until Gu Bailu slapped it away. “Don’t think you can just do anything after turning into a fox.”
The little fox squeaked in dissatisfaction.
Gu Bailu lowered her head, only to be shocked by the overwhelming lust in those foxy eyes.
She was about to drop the fox, when it turned into a man on top of her, and he tried to press his lips to hers.
Gu Bailu was quick to kick his groin, making his lips stop three centimeters away from her face.
“Little fox, stay away from me.” Gu Bailu’s foot stayed where she had kicked him. She had thought that the man would flinch at the pain, but she sensed the changes in that part with her foot.
The fox truly was a man.
She hurriedly drew her foot back, and for some reason remembered what Feng Qingtian had said.
