I changed the original title of Chapter 18 and will only reveal it at the end of Chapter 18 because the title itself is a huge spoiler and I think most readers will enjoy the story much more without knowing the title beforehand. A favourite character of mine appears and he spills a rather big secret, but who knows if Jin Mi will get it?
We are now at chapter 52 of 68 internet chapters and chapter 18 of 24 book chapters.
Chapter 18: The Constellations are Moving (Part 1 of 2)
"How many female goddesses has Night had physical relations?" I sat on the bamboo bed, bit my lips, and seriously looked at the half kneeling Night before me.
Night's hand paused, his cheeks flushed red, he turned aside to cough, then returned a gentle gaze at me, "To have physical relations is not child's play. Since I have a marriage agreement with Jin Mi, why would I have any physical relationships with other female goddesses? I only anticipate marrying Jin Mi on the 8th of the next month, we will then be husband and wife for ten thousands of years."
I paused, from what Night had said, only men and women who are going to get married should mutually cultivate? But, Master Pu Chi said that as long as one is a man and one is a woman, then one can mutually cultivate, and the Moon God said that mutual cultivation harmonises the yin and yang. Since both of them had such different views, I could not help being a little confused.
Night carefully looked at me and said calmly, "Why does Jin Mi ask this? Has Night done anything wrong?"
Phoenix and Sui He did not have any marriage engagement, I suddenly remembered the scene I had seen in Qi Wu's palace, I furrowed my brow and looked into Night's clear gaze, "You are very good, even better than very good. I had came to accompany you to watch the moonlight, and had only asked the question for fun."
Night gave an elegant and gentle smile. He got up and sat next to me. He held my back and bent down to kiss me, it was soft and smooth like maple syrup dissolving on my lips, after a long while, he finally moved away. His forehead leaned on my forehead, the tip of his nose brushed the tip of my nose, he gave out a sigh with deep feeling, and then placed his hand on my shoulder and sat next to me. He lifted up his head to face the moon in the sky, he smiled, "The moon looks less lonely tonight."
The night was cold like water, the small fireflies flew around us, my eye lids started to grow heavier and I yawned, I leaned onto Night's arm and safely fell asleep...
When the dawn broke and Night's shift was over, I had awoke and Night sent me back to Luo Xiang manor. Just as I stepped into the manor, I saw a group of immortal attendants looking helpless as they surrounded a figure in green who cried, "Ah Jin Mi! Ah Jin Mi! I have waited for days and nights just to see you. But, who knew I could only see your dead body? No one can stop me! I will chase Jin Mi in death!" As he cried, he appeared to want to hit the pillar with his head and his voice rose passionately.
I saw that this was Master Pu Chi.
"Who said Jin Mi is dead?" Water God Daddy sternly said as he stepped into the hallway and looked at Master Pu Chi, his brows were furrowed tight as if his head was in great pain.
"If she is not dead, why doesn't the great god let me see her?" Master Pu Chi hugged the pillar and refused to let go, but his tears immediately stopped.
"Jin Mi is already betrothed to Night. I hope Gentleman Yan You can speak carefully and not harm Jin Mi's reputation," Daddy coldly spoke, he sounded a bit angry.
"The great Water God's words are too cold. Although Jin Mi has the right to be engaged, I also have the right to have unrequited love," Master Pu Chi said boldly.
