Was The Fantian Palace A Marketplace?

The setting up of a wizardry barrier was usually like this… It could be infinite and boundless, but once the key was found to decipher the barrier, it could be infinitely small; so small that one could easily step out of it.
The jungle hosted many ferocious beasts. A few of them immediately surrounded Gu Xijiu. But with her extraordinary Kung Fu, she could easily defend herself. With only a few moves, all the beasts were defeated.
After the fight, she was surprised that the beasts were all of the low ranks. Most of them were roughly at level five. It was safe to assume that the Divine Lord was worried that the ferocious beasts might harm his son, so he chose to insert the ones of a lower rank into the wizardry barrier.
Little Nianmo’s Kung Fu was approaching the level of a Golden Immortal. Would these lousy beasts be incompetent for his level? It did not seem much like the Divine Lord’s style. Bewildered, she tried to pay closer attention to her surrounding, but could not hear any roaring in the distance. The little boy must have hidden well.
There was an abundance of ferocious beasts in the jungle. Gu Xijiu would bump into a few beasts even in a short walk. Reluctant to fight, she chose to avoid as many of them as she could.
She knew how to teleport, so these beasts could hardly get close even though they had seen her. The place reminded her of the Dark Forest, and Gu Xijiu recalled her first experience in the Dark Forest with a narrow escape from death. She could still remember how she was trying to stay alive; every second was a struggle of life and death.
All of a sudden, a man came into her vision. She could roughly remember the figure of the man in the Dark Forest, fighting along with her. However, she could not recall his identity no matter how hard she tried.
She took a few turns in the jungle. From a distance, she could hear something strange, like someone was knocking the rocks. She followed the sound and finally found Shen Nianmo.
The little boy seemed rather messy. His hair was thoroughly soaked, and so were his clothes. Beside him, there was a pile of wet firewood and some meat. There he squatted, trying hard to start a fire.
Obviously, he was unsure of the correct method, so he was making a lot of noise but with no result to show for it.Gu Xijiu was confused. It was merely an easy matter if he chose to use the spell. The little boy looked as though he was seeking the challenge to live in the open wild.
Was it possible that he could not utilize his spells at all?
Gu Xijiu watched excitedly from the top of the tree for a while. Finally, a sense of soft-heartedness filled her heart. “I can help you light the fire, but you will have to share half of the meat with me,” she offered.
Shen Nianmo was obviously shocked. He trembled, and the rocks slipped from his hands. The small flame that he had worked on for so long died out immediately.
He raised his head and found her. His eyes narrowed with an immediate concern. Quickly, he rose and took a careful step backward. “Who are you? Why have you been following me?”
Gu Xijiu was covered entirely in black and an awfully disturbing mask with a fiery red face. Her attire completely concealed her gender. Gu Xijiu was expecting his reaction, so she folded her arms and answered casually, “A passerby.”
How could one pass by the Fantian Palace? Was Fantian Palace like a marketplace?
Shan Nianmo clearly rejected the lousy excuse, so he took another careful step in retreat and treated her with defensive hostility. Apparently, he thought that she was a bad person who was here to abduct him.
Gu Xijiu smiled gently and presented a pile of mushroom-shaped wood that was used to ignite a fire. She flicked the wood in front of him and tempted him. “Can you see this? This is a fire-igniting wood that can be used to store fire. With this, you will never have to strike fire from flint.”
