Who Was The Traitor? (2)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
However, everyone here was an elite of Tianju Hall, and so it was unreasonable to quarantine them for a few days. Besides, no house was big enough to detain 22 people. The discipline elders looked at each other for a moment and found it difficult to deal with such a situation.
Gu Canmo made up his mind and said, “Let’s quarantine them in three groups and ask them to oversee each other. We will let them go as soon as we find the traitor.”
The face of the 22 suspects changed as soon as they heard what Gu Canmo had said.
Some of them retorted. “Headmaster Gu, it is unfair to ask us to be quarantined together with the traitor. Are you planning to quarantine us forever if you are unable to find the traitor?”
Gu Canmo coldly said, “No, the longest that I will quarantine you is only until Celestial Master Zuo is dead. However, we will have to quarantine all of you until that time comes.”
The people were getting increasingly dissatisfied. Everyone claimed that they were innocent. The situation was getting a bit out of control because everyone was getting very angry.
Gu Canmo also understood that most of the people here were innocent. However, it was a severe issue so he could not take the risk.
Gu Xijiu suddenly spoke just as he was about to order to bring these people away. “Headmaster Gu, their argument is reasonable. We should not quarantine everyone just because of one traitor. I have an idea to find the traitor in one day. Furthermore, we won’t have to quarantine everyone.”
The crowd opened their eyes and looked at her skeptically after she finished speaking.
Gu Xijiu patted her storage bag, and soon enough, a small little head showed up from the container. It was Lu Wu, and it looked somewhat blur. “Master, do you need anything?”
Gu Xijiu touched its head. “Come out and listen to me.”
Lu Wu suddenly awoke and immediately jumped out onto Gu Xijiu’s shoulder, its nine tails swayed along. “Yes, master!” It felt excited to be summoned.
“Master, what about me?” The mussel also popped up from within the gang and busily sought for attention.
Recently, Gu Xijiu had been bringing them around. Occasionally, she would let them out to take a breather. However, they felt bored most of the time. Now, they became very excited when they suddenly heard that they had a mission.
Gu Xijiu also took the mussel out. “I will assign a task to you later. Hold on.”
“Okay!” The mussel immediately transformed to his original size and went to one corner and kept watch of everyone.
Gu Canmo was slightly shocked. He seemed to have thought of something. “Xijiu, are you planning to ask the mussel to use his illusion skill on everyone so that they would speak the truth?”
Gu Xijiu laughed. “Something like that. As you know, the mussel possesses a skill that can force people to reveal their secrets.”
Everyone almost stepped back at the same time as she revealed this fact.
It was common for people to have their secrets. For example, a person might secretly be admiring someone else; a person may hate someone and curse them deep down in their heart. Furthermore, some of the guys currently do not have a partner, and so they may be forced to use their hands when their sexual desires get the better of them.
All of these were untellable secrets. They would feel extremely embarrassed if their secrets were disclosed to the public.
Lan Waihu, Qian Lingyu, Lan Yue, Zhang Chuchu were among the 22 people being suspected.
Lan Waihu tried opposing. “No, Xijiu. You should know that I am innocent. I don’t want to be tested!” She had a big secret in her heart and did not want it to be disclosed to the public. She did not want to let Yan Chen know about it too.
