First meeting or reintroduction…..
The illusionary image seemed unreal and resembled something one would see in a dream…fantasy. The subtle wave of undulating color that mirrored the smooth, fluid motions of the curling sea, was Ye Hua’s future Crown Princess Consort Bai Qian’s silky oceanic hued goddess dress that was flowing and swaying with her careful, deliberate steps.
Slowly she moved towards him, while showered in the rain of falling blossoms from the many peach tree branches overhead. She was far and shifting straight in his direction but at a gradual, creeping pace.
At first, her unintelligible, hazy features were imprecise, vague but the closer she came, Ye Hua started to see dark spots because he was involuntarily holding his breath. The sudden winded sensation was precisely like being forcibly punched the stomach, and he trembled to the point, that he compulsorily quenched his jaw firmly to stop his teeth from chattering uncontrollably.
It was sheer madness. Ye Hua roughly rubbed his eyes scarcely able to believe the incredible, and unexplained sight that was standing before him.
They paused a few paces apart when she spoke first in a voice and tone he knew all too well, “It’s been a while, Ye Hua. I guess three hundred years give or take a day or two. Do you remember me?”
Incredulously Ye Hua couldn’t believe the words that were coming out of his mouth, when he heard himself whisper in absolute disbelief, “SuSu?”
How sad was the melancholy smile on her face but her guarded gaze was icy, and there wasn’t a hint of warmth in her chilly masquerade when she coolly corrected, “Perhaps once but not anymore. I’m High Goddess Bai Qian of Qingqiu, and the time has come for me to take back what rightfully belongs to me.”
A thin strip of white, silken, material suddenly appeared over her eyes as she coldly stated without expression, “It’s time for payback and retribution. I want revenge and I need your help.”
