“Why are you over her now?” Gu Bailu asked curiously.
Bai Yunyi frowned slightly. “Can we talk about something else?”
“But I really want to know. Mr. Bai, if you want to win my heart, you must show me your sincerity.” Gu Bailu certainly would never let go of such a chance.
“She hurt me.”
“Who is she?” Gu Bailu really wanted to know who was the person that this man, whom Gu Yunjing and Feng Qingtian were both worried about, had loved before.
For some reason, she subconsciously thought that it might be herself.
Even Gu Yunjing had mentioned that the deities had liked her back when she was at Heavenly Palace Cliff.
“Yan Anchun, the current Princess Zi,” replied Bai Yunyi.
Gu Bailu’s heart grew heavy. Was that really true?
“Did you know her in the past?”
“She was my love a long time ago.”
Gu Bailu was lost for words.
If Yan Anchun was his love, then where did Feng Qingtian come in? Had she cheated on Bai Yunyi by sleeping with Feng Qingtian?
It all seemed too dramatic.
Gu Bailu didn’t want to be part of it.
“Then how did she end up with Prince Zi?” asked Gu Bailu in shock.
“It was a long time ago… You might not understand.”
“Just tell me. I’ll just consider it a story. I’m very curious.”
“If you’re interested, I’ll tell you.” Bai Yunyi crossed his hands on the table, sorrow in his eyes. “At Heavenly Palace Cliff, I used to be the deity with mastery over the weather. By the order of Heavenly Palace Cliff, I unleashed a huge flood on mankind and nearly drowned the land.
“Mankind didn’t want to be destroyed, so a priest who could communicate with Heavenly Palace Cliff offered up a five-year-old girl as a sacrifice.
“The girl was very cute. Her beautiful eyes made me want to give her all the best things.
“I accepted the sacrifice but was unwilling to kill the girl, and so violated the Heavenly Emperor’s order. Mankind survived the cataclysm, and I was punished with imprisonment for hundreds of years. During those centuries, that girl grew up bold and beautiful. She trained with me and cultivated excellent divine arts.
“I fell in love with her. I knew that a deity shouldn’t, but I couldn’t control myself; my heart changed in her company. She was nice to me and helped me through my lonely punishment.
“I thought that we would live happily ever after in the tower where I was imprisoned. However, Heavenly Palace Cliff pardoned me not long after that, and I was released. Once we were out, she had a great time at Heavenly Palace Cliff. Because she was delightful and adorable, all the deities liked her, which made her even more audacious. Later, she pissed off the Heavenly Emperor, who locked her up in his temple. By the time the Heavenly Emperor set her free, she told me that she had fallen in love with the Heavenly Emperor and wanted to be with him.”
