Rong Jialuo was observing Gu Xijiu with a smile. He seemed happy and relieved about something.
When the five-colored rays were emitted from the Spiritual Pillar and engulf Huo Qifang, the entire square with tens of thousands of people were in complete silence. They could easily hear it if a needle fell on the floor.
The five-color rays whirled around Huo Qifang, and four of them disappeared. However, the green rays in-fluxed Huo Qifang’s body and he glowed in green! The green light then moved around his body and disappeared a few minutes later.
Gu Xijiu glimpsed at Huo Qifang with surprise and relief. Finally, she announced, “He is a heaven’s gift disciple who cultivates the wood element of spiritual power!”
It shocked everyone at the scene!
The entire square that was initially quiet was filled with thunderous applause and cheer! Some were surprised while others were still in utter shock. Mu Feng was also shocked!
Although Mu Feng had witnessed countless test conducted by Di Fuyi, he could not be sure whether Gu Xijiu had done it correctly because the procedures were too complicated. The consequence was too severe if it was inappropriately done.
In the past, many from the testee’s fellow countrymen would come and support the testee whenever he or she had to be examined as a heaven’s gift disciple. Occasionally, some of the members from the royal family would come and cheer as they found there was no reason for them to excuse themselves.
However, the people from Huo Qifang’s home country did not think he was a heaven’s gift disciple because they assumed he was insane to claim that he was a heaven’s gift disciple in the first place. Everyone looked at him as a joke; hence, not many people from his home country came to support him.
A few people did come, and they screamed in delight after Gu Xijiu made the announcement.
A voice came from the crowd, “This must be the first time for National Celestial Master to host the ceremony; there must be a mistake!”
The voice was loud enough to cover the noise from the crowd. The clear voice also lingered around everyone’s ears.
The crowd immediately took a glimpse and realized that it came from a scholarly young man. There were four more young men around him who looked below 18 years of age. Based on the way they dressed, they were probably from the Zhaoyang Kingdom.
Huo Qifang’s expression changed as he looked at them with his fists clenched. They were his childhood buddies.
The smart young man was the most pampered prince of the emperor from the Zhaoyang Kingdom. It was a surprise for him to visit.
Gu Xijiu gazed down at the young men. Casually, she asked, “What kind of mistake?”
The young man laughed arrogantly before responding, “How could a person like Huo Qifang be a heaven’s gift disciple? His spiritual power is low, he has no guts, and he is irresponsible.”
Gu Xijiu listened to him and then asked again, “I asked you what’s the mistake, not your opinion about the outcome!”
The young man answered, “The result is wrong, that’s why it’s a mistake… If he is a heaven’s gift disciple, then I also deserve to be one because my spiritual power is higher than his and I’m also smarter than him…”
He then sized up Gu Xijiu with a gaze filled with contempt. “Although National Celestial Master has a very high level of spiritual power as well as a high status in the Feixing Kingdom, the test to identify the heaven’s gift disciple should not be done carelessly because the future of the entire continent depends on it. Celestial Master Zuo has always been the main host of the test and no one would doubt the result as he is trustworthy. However, National Celestial Master Gu is a rookie and a lady.”
