Gu Xijiu wanted to loosen her sleeve from his grip, and Little Nianmo seemed to have noticed her annoyance and let go automatically. He took a step back and gave her a charming smile. After that, he raised his hand, patiently waiting for the present.
Gu Xijiu was at a loss for words. She observed little Nianmo's expression for a while and said scornfully, "If you have rejected it, it should no longer be yours. However, if you really want it, I will give you another chance. This present is rather unique. If you really want it, you have to prove to it that you deserve it."
Soon, she presented the gift on her palm again. "If you want it, you have to open the box right now." Little Nianmo agreed without hesitating. The mysterious woman then handed the box to him.
The crowd was curious. All of them were eager to see what was in the box.
The woman seemed to be playing a game with him. Ning Xuemo noticed her trick, so she wanted to stand very close to her son to make sure he was safe. Shen Jiuli pulled her back instead and shook his head lightly in disapproval.
Ning Xuemo was not sure about her husband's intention, but she was certain that he knew what he was doing, so she stood still. However, her hands were ready to perform a series of powerful spells if anything were to happen to her son.
The box was a very delicate item. Observing it carefully, it did not have an opening. Shen Nianmo took the box and touched it everywhere. Soon, he found a spot and pointed at it. Surprisingly, he managed to open the box.
Gu Xijiu clenched her fist in disbelief. He really could open it! It was really him! After years of tireless search from the Upper Bound to the Underworld, she had finally found him.
Little Nianmo was unaware of Gu Xijiu's waves of emotions. Like everyone else, he focused instead on the item in the box.
Once opened, a flash of golden rays emerged strikingly. There was a golden snake resting in the box. The snake was not big, only about a few inches long. Its body was covered entirely in attractive golden scales. It also had two horns on its head. Whimsically, the snake shone in a faint golden light, like the infinite light of Buddha's aura.
Also, the snake had really long eyelashes that were also golden. With its eyes closed, it looked rather refined and elegant. When the box opened, the snake suddenly opened its eyes. The color of its eyes was pitch-black but glistening. The crowd was dazzled by its charm.
Little Nianmo focused his eyes on the golden snake. It somehow gave him a sense of familiarity. The eyes of the snake were black, but the charm that it possessed was golden. It was rather odd.
Little Nianmo's body reflected the golden ray, making him look as though he was glistening in gold, too. Moreover, the light formed a circled aura at the back of his head.
Ning Xuemo was moved. Little Nianmo looked as though he carried the light of Buddha.
