Chapter 2478 – He Used To Be A Lot Older Than Her
Even though Shen Jiuli could keep his calm, Ning Xuemo still felt uncomfortable about the events surround her son. After barely a few hours, she brought up the topic again and asked Shen Jiuli to open the water mirror so that they could check on their son. She claimed that this festival required a reunion, and even though they could not physically meet, the least they could do was to observe their son through the water mirror.
Shen Jiuli did not want to argue with her, so he opened the mirror again. The image that appeared on the mirror was Di Fuyi and Gu Xijiu looking at the starry array. His parents also observed the starry array for some time to try to decipher its mechanisms. Ning Xuemo was the Great Devil, so when she saw the wraiths attached to the spiritual crystals, she frowned. She then asked Shen Jiuli, “What is this sorcery? It looks so evil!”
“No wonder the Shura World has no spiritual energy. This array has been absorbing all of its energy! And, if my guesses are right, there are more than one of these arrays in the Shura World. In fact, there should be at least eight more that are sucking out the spiritual energy in the place and transferring it to the man behind the scenes. Well, it is no surprise that Yun Yanli has managed to develop so quickly.”
“Can you crack it?” Ning Xuemo was a master in array formations, but this array made her feel rather uncomfortable.
Shen Jiulu pondered for a moment. “With our skills, it is not difficult to crack it. We can demolish it and also help the souls find peace. However, if we do so, it would be harmful to the entire Shura World, because we don’t know what this array is connected to over there. Perhaps, it will affect the balance in the place.”
While discussing over their wine and food, they could also hear the audio around Di Fuyi. Hence, the dialogue between Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi was audible to them. In the process, Ning Xuemo heard Di Fuyi address Gu Xijiu as ‘baby,’ and she could not help but giggle. “Miss Gu should be a thousand years old, right? On the other hand, Nianmo is so young. She should be the one who addresses him as ‘baby.'”
Shen Jiuli took a sip of wine before responding, “This girl is actually only 200 years old while Nianmo… Well, he used to be much older than her!”
“Used to?” Ning Xuemo clearly caught the key message. “Do you mean that Nianmo is the reincarnation of someone from Gu Xijiu’s past?”
Shen Jiuli paused for a moment. He had to figure out if he was allowed to tell his wife the truth. Ning Xuemo tugged pulled his sleeve in anticipation. “Don’t be so hesitant. Be direct with me!”
In a bid to satisfy her demand while protecting the heavenly secret, Shen Jiuli responded smartly, “Nianmo was Gu Xijiu’s better half in his past life.”
Ning Xuemo remained silent, but she seemed to connect some dots automatically. “Was he also called Di Fuyi in the past?”
“No wonder you agreed for him to change his name, even his surname!”
Ning Xuemo had heard something about Gu Xijiu, but she needed clarification. “She has always been looking for a person in the Upper Bound. Was the person Nianmo? Why did she not recognize him at first?”
“In Nianmo’s past life, the heavenly laws erased all memories about him. Naturally, Miss Gu could not remember him as well. She was merely looking for him using her instincts.” Shen Jiuli sighed before continuing,” They were extremely close in his past life.”
Ning Xuemo kept silent for a considerably long time. Nonetheless, she kept her eyes on their son. “I have always felt that Nianmo does not look like you or me. Could it be that his current appearance is how he used to look like in his past life?”
Shen Jiuli faintly replied, “No matter which couple gives birth to Nianmo, he will not change his appearance. This is his original appearance.”
Ning Xuemo was stunned. Was her son really that powerful? He must possess very unique genes if even the Divine Lord and Great Devil’s genes combined could not change him.
