The Meeting Of Old Friends
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Gu Xijiu wondered what kind of ferocious creature the mussel had encountered. How could it not leave any scent or trace behind?
Gu Xijiu continued to search with Lu Wu, and they slowly entered the deeper part of the forest. It was not easy to walk in there as there were plenty of thorns, which made one feel as though they were stepping on needles.
Abruptly, Gu Xijiu paused as she heard someone talking. What a coincidence that she bumped into the five little kids again! It was Guan Jinhua and her clanmates. They were arguing about something, and it was loud enough for Gu Xijiu to hear even though she was not keen to listen.
Gu Xijiu got two messages out of the conversation. The first was the that Shen Nianmo’s action of betraying his teachers still remained a secret within the ten clans; hence, most of the people did not know about it. The overlords of the ten clans had not given up on Shen Nianmo as they still planned to pull him back from the ‘devil.’ After all, they were all friends of the Divine Lord; they could not let the son of their friends follow the ‘devil.’ Therefore, they planned many different avenues to bring Shen Nianmo back.
Secondly, they heard that there was a strange phenomenon on Yaori Mountain recently. According to the prediction made by the fortune master, a celestial creature would be born on Yaori Mountain in the next few days; hence, they were here to try their luck.
Of course, they also discussed Gu Xijiu, who was referred to as a devil woman during their discussion. They suspected that she was dead. And if she was not dead, they wished that she would be paralyzed by now. In fact, Gu Xijiu had been honorably upgraded from ‘devil woman’ to ‘old devil woman.’ Without any surprise, they repeatedly mentioned that it was dishonorable enough for her to think about getting such a young boy to be her partner.
Gu Xijiu curved her lips upward; she did not want to be calculative with the kids. Initially, she wanted to forgive them. However, they should not have let her hear this conversation. Since she heard it, she was getting upset. Consequently, she felt like beating them upto teach them a lesson!
As a result, she smiled evilly and teleported over. When the five of them were happily judging her, they suddenly heard a sound of blades scraping one another and saw a few sparks! They were shocked and quickly drew their swords to fight.
“Ouch!! Oh, gosh…” Before the five of them managed to find out who was after them, their swords were shattered, and their palms were bleeding from injuries. That was not the worst thing that happened to them; a sparkling golden weapon severely damaged their clothes.
They immediately retreated to avoid further attacks.
“Who is that!?”
“Who is there?!”
They were questioning and screaming out of fear. As they had time to catch sight of their surroundings, they realized that they did not see anyone there. Had the leaves attacked them? Those leaves were as soft and smooth as silk. Was it so powerful when it was used as a weapon!?
All five of them were frightened and subconsciously got into formation; they formed a circle with their backs facing each other’s as they tried to find the culprit.
Suddenly, someone chuckled above a tree. “Did your teacher not tell you that you will be sent to hell with your tongue removed if you judge someone behind their back?”
The voice was crystal clear as it lingered in the wind. Instantly, the five of them went stiff as the voice was too familiar!
