Even If It Was Only A Dream

A day later, he was trapped in another wizardry barrier. Only this time, it came with an increased level of difficulty.
Shen Nianmo had been indulging in good food the day before to replenish his physical strength before he was essentially locked up again.The current wizardry barrier was more robust.
Due to Shen Nianmo’s intense protest, Shen Jiuli did not send him into a wizardry barrier in the desert. He complained that he would have languished from lack of water and too much sun, so his father sent him into another wizardry barrier in the rainforest instead, a place filled with sufficient water sources.
The amount of water supply in the rainforest was indeed plentiful. There would be a torrential downpour every one or two hours. The floor had turned into mud. The combination of hot and humid weather frustrated him.
He could not utilize his spiritual power within the wizardry barrier. In the primitive rainforest, ferocious beasts appeared relentlessly. After rounds and rounds of heavy rain, he was completely soaked like a drowned rat. He could not even use his spiritual power to dry up his clothes instantly. Moreover, he had to run for his life tirelessly to escape from the beasts.
Gu Xijiu had not left the Fantian Palace, so she had clearly seen what happened. The Divine Lord was eager to punish his son with no mercy shown. The little boy must have acquired his extraordinary Kung Fu from his father’s abnormal ways of teaching.
For the past two days, she took her time to visit Shen Nianmo’s study room and bedroom secretly.
To her surprise, she realized that the boy had a great habit of putting everything in perfect order. He had even arranged the books according to their height from the shortest to the tallest.
Also, the boy had a keen eye for beauty. The aesthetics in his study room and bedroom clearly reflected his simple and elegant taste. He had even clipped and carved his flowers with impressive emphasis, better than anyone who had formally learned how to do so.
The little boy was amazing, but not enough to impress his father.Was he too ambitious to see his child succeed in life? Or was he trying to make him the best? If she were to have a son like Shen Nianmo, she would not have the heart to put her son through all that trouble.
She could be, nonetheless, the reason behind the little boy’s confinement in the wizardry barrier. She had indeed peeped at the little boy while he was taking his bath. She was only trying to get closer to the little boy to see if the jade would light up again.
The result was rather disappointing; the jade did not light up, but that was probably also due to the distance. When Shen Nianmo stepped ashore, she had quickly lunged into the sky to avert suspicion. She was lucky that she did. Otherwise, the boy’s strike would definitely have hit her.
Gu Xijiu was more or less guilty, so she studied the wizardry barrier and found out that the barrier would not let the insiders out, but would let the outsiders in. She could easily make her way into the barrier.
The moment Gu Xijiu stepped into the barrier, she was cautious enough to realize the Divine Lord’s reckless mistake. Wouldn’t he be worried that someone else might sneak into the barrier and attack his beloved son?
The wizardry barrier was more complicated that she had thought it would be; it was like a huge leap into a primitive jungle. There was not a path to trek, while bushes of thorns crept all over the ground.
From the depths of the jungle, she could hear deep, prolonged cries of the beasts. It was rather creepy, with an air of mystery and gloom.
The jungle was covered in a thick fog. If a normal person were to stand in the fog, it would be difficult even for him or her to see who was standing right opposite them. Even for someone as powerful as Gu Xijiu, there was a limitation for her vision as well. She could only see clearly within a few miles, so she was unsure how vast the jungle actually was.
