Gu Xijiu had not put in her all in a battle for a long time. She probably did not know that whenever she was basking in her new marital affection with Di Fuyi, he was covertly passing on his external abilities to her, causing her external ability to escalate at a frightening rate.
Furthermore, when Di Fuyi passed on, his spiritual power was transferred into the Purple Cloud Mushrooms that were picked by Gu Xijiu to be refined into pills.
The Firmament Stone had coaxed Gu Xijiu to consume the pills, augmenting her external abilities by several degrees. The current Gu Xijiu was no longer any greenhorn, and her prowess was not too different from that of Di Fuyi’s in his prime.
That was why the Firmament Stone was unsure of Gu Xijiu’s level of abilities, not to mention that it was not familiar with the Saha World and was unable to make an assessment. However, it felt that her power should surpass those white-shirted dudes that guided the ascenders in the square and even that of the Princess Ya.
Purple was the color that could only be worn by royalty here and differed in shade based on status. Princess Ya had worn light purple, while Yun Yanli wore a shade darker. The darker the shade, the higher the status.
Gu Xijiu looked down with her head in her hands. In the disarrayed crowd, she did not see anyone else in purple.
Is the person she is looking for of royal blood? The Saha World was divided into nine heavens. Those with the noblest blood lived in the ninth layer, the officials with high status lived in the eighth layer, the lower bureaucrats lived in the seventh layer, while the commoners of the fairy clan entirely inhabited the sixth layer.
It goes without saying that the higher the layer, the more condensed the spiritual power.
This is the reason why some ascenders are willing to become servants when they reach here; they could live in a place heavy with spiritual power alongside their master. Entry to the ninth layer and eighth layer of heaven is strictly prohibited and can only be allowed through a guide.
The square that Gu Xijiu alighted on was on the sixth layer and was basically accessible to all. The layer below that, the fifth, is a no man’s land peopled by the troops of the fairy clan and demons and monsters.
The Demons dominated the third and fourth layer, while the monsters occupied the first and second layer. It is said that several thousand years ago, the fairies, demons, and monsters equally distributed the land and were embroiled in a great war. At some point in the past, the fairy clan became stronger and stronger and gradually reduced the other two groups’ territory to the desolate lands below the fifth layer.
Gu Xijiu had stayed here for about a month and had attained quite a clear idea of its structure. She had basically walked around every corner of the sixth layer. She sometimes saw a few people of royal blood who wore light purple robes. Among them, there were some that were debonair and charming, but Gu Xijiu took a closer look at them and found out that they were not the person she was looking for.
She sunk into contemplation while tapping the bark of the tree with her fingers. She had heard before that the Emperor Immortal had two sons, the younger being Yun Yanli and the eldest being Yun Yanhong. Both of them were figures of magnificence and talent. She had already seen Yun Yanli. Maybe now she should look for Yun Yanhong?
Having walked around for so many days, she felt tired and slept beneath the tree.
In a daze, she entered an open field of wilderness. Even in her dreams, she seemed to be looking for something. As it was drizzling, she ran into a nearby cave to avoid getting wet.
Running without much sense of the ground, she tripped on something and fell on her face.
