It Was An Impossible Mission Even To Endeavor

Gu Xijiu continued to have a small chat with the Firmament Stone. However, every now and then, she would find herself subconsciously staring in the direction where Yun Yanli went.
She knew the man in the green robes- he was the governor of Suiye City. If the governor was one of Yun Yanli’s followers, she could almost be sure that all the other governors would also be his followers.
Gu Xijiu also knew that Yun Yanli’s power was so much greater than what he was willing to reveal. Could the Blood Rain and the tremendous change about the place be a few of Yun Yanli’s evil tactics? What was his purpose of creating all nine cities? Was he really doing it out of kindness? Did the cities serve as an array formation for him to collect more spiritual aura from the place?
Yun Yanli’s advancement in his spiritual power had been unbelievably quick. Was it related to the array formation? Furthermore, the issue of the missing majestic pets remained unresolved in heaven. Did he have anything to do with the matter?
Many questions started to come together at once, so Gu Xijiustarted to ponder deeply over the possibilities.
“Master, do you want to follow them and see what they are up to?”
Gu Xijiu replied, “This place is so odd. Let’s wait for a while.”
“Ah? Should we wait any longer? I am afraid that they will soon disappear. How are you going to enter the array formation?”
“Silly, Yun Yanli is able to tell my presence immediately within a hundred-mile perimeter. If the array formation is his lifeblood, he will definitely pay extra attention to it and protect it. If I get too close, my presence may become an unnecessary alarm and ruin everything.”
“When do we enter, then?”
Gu Xijiu looked at the moon high in the night sky and made some calculations at her fingertips. “Now is the time,” she commanded as she rose abruptly.
Gu Xijiu had always thought of herself as one of the greatest talents in an array formation. There were only very few formations that she could not solve. However, the array formation that she found after tailing Yun Yanli gave her a blow in her confidence.
First, she went through the bamboo garden and arrived at the side of a hall of residence. There was a spectacular view of the place. Also, there were eight women in the hall. They were all beautiful, each with her own attractiveness. The single commonality between the women was that all of them were wearing very thin clothes; they were almost naked. It was a very seductive view for any passerby.
Gu Xijiu was not seduced, but there was no way she could avoid the women on her way. Some women were sitting. Others stood. Some were playing their lutes. Some were painting. Some were playing chess.
Out of the entire space in the hall, there was not a single spot for Gu Xijiu to hide. No matter which direction she chose to enter, her path would definitely be exposed. The eight women could be more than just the concubines of the governor of Suiye City. They could also be the guardians of the array formation.
Gu Xijiu spent some time to observe their appearances and postures. She was sure that their spiritual power was all around level eight, possibly higher. All of them could be considered as great fighters here, and they all shared the same spiritual power level as Gu Xijiu at the moment.
She was confident that with her experience, she was able to take one of the women down in less than an hour, but only if she could do it one on one. If she had to fight all eight of them together at once, it was an impossible mission even to endeavor.
Gu Xijiu thought about it for a moment and decided to transform into one of the rocks in the garden. She put the rock from the garden into her storage bag and took its place.
“Master, aren’t we entering?” The Firmament Stone was confused. It did not quite understand why she chose to prolong the wait.
“We should wait. Now is not the time to enter. Act rashly, and we will only alert our enemy.”
Wait? What for? The Firmament Stone was confused. However, it soon figured out her intention. About an hour later, the governor of Suiye City finally came out of his bedroom. All the women approached him at once. Some had to bring him his robes; some tried to fix the crown on his head. They surrounded him like a bunch of busy bees.
Bewildered, the Firmament Stone noticed something different. “Master, why don’t they talk to each other at all?”
The two had been observing the girls for a while. The women never made any sound the entire time.
