    Gu Xijiu could not speak those thoughts in her mind. She just received the clothes from The Lord and put it on somewhere in the distance.

    It was a light blue dress which was soft and smooth. Gu Xijiu did not know the exact material, but she felt comfortable as she put it on. The dress would flutter when the wind blew, much like Di Fuyi's sleeves. More interestingly, Gu Xijiu realized that the aching feeling in her body was significantly reduced, as were the bruises on her body which faded after she donned the dress. She felt great now!

    The only flaw of the dress was its oversized cutting, as it could not help to reveal her slim body figure. She had suffered a lot in the last few days - she was put in jail and almost killed in many attacks. She was exhausted and became skinnier than before. Her waist shrank. Fortunately, her bust was still well maintained.

    Although the dress given to Gu Xijiu by The Lord was beautiful, it was not as good as her black outfit which made her looked nicer. Nonetheless, an oversized dress was not a big deal as she could still tie a strap around her waist.

    ...

    It was a breezy evening, and the green grass was swaying. The water was flowing into the brook, and the butterflies were dancing in the air.

    Gu Xijiu was walking side by side together with The Lord. An hour had passed, but The Lord still had not mentioned anything. He did not even say a single word but continued walking.

    Gu Xijiu felt like she was reliving a movie scene of young couples in the 70's having small talk on the street pacing back and forth the entire evening. But in this case, The Lord was much older than her; this would be like walking with her grandpa!

    "The environment here is quite nice." The Lord finally opened his mouth! They had walked a few kilometers away from the pond by now.

    Along the journey, they saw brooks, ponds, waterfalls, and green lawns. Everything seemed to be balanced with each other's existence.

    "Yup." Gu Xijiu responded. She suddenly realized it was too impassioned and added, "The weather is nice, too."

    Gu Xijiu still felt awkward. My Lord, what do you want to talk to me about? Can you just go straight to the point? She was thinking about her mussel. That fellow had not eaten for a few days; it must be starving now.

    "My Lord, do you have anything you want me to do?" Gu Xijiu decided to take control of the conversation. The Lord looked at her; she was smiling at him in a professional fashion, but The Lord realized that she seemed to be annoyed by the long walk.

    The Lord moved his gaze away and asked, "What do you think about the culprit behind the incident?"

    Gu Xijiu was stunned and then decided to speak honestly, "I personally think it's not as simple as what we had seen earlier. There must be something behind the death of Teacher Zi..."

    The Lord looked at her again, "Carry on."

    Thus, Gu Xijiu continued, "The incident looks simple from the surface, Hu Qingqing who hated me very much tried to seduce Teacher Zi so that he could secretly send someone to destroy my house and thought I'd be afraid and then withdraw from the Tianju Hall. It caused the two disciples to accidental disclosed Teacher Zi' scandals, and he decided to kill two of his disciples secretly and then push the crime to the mussel and I. This is because we would be kicked out from the Tianju Hall even if we would not be executed. However, My Lord was intelligent and found the truth of the matter. Teacher Zi was very mad and anxious, his blood circulated rapidly and caused him to lose his mind. Thus, he got burnt by his own power. Everything seems to be fine, and it makes sense. However, I feel something is weird..."

    The Lord smiled and asked, "What's weird then?"
