In the middle of the stage, there was another platform in the shape of a lotus flower that was supporting a big pillar made of burgundy wood material that glittered with dew.
Other than the stages, the square itself was divided into eight different regions, each separated with a layer of white curtains. Surely, these regions were allocated for the common people to witness the ceremony.
Long before the start of the ceremony, the place was already thronged with excited people. Patrols were stationed to guide the people into different designated areas in an orderly fashion to avoid any accidents. The people were generally spiritual energy cultivators, so they lined up according to their element of practice, respectively.
A huge crowd was expected to show up, as a lot of people would definitely come to witness the governor’s big day. Additionally, Yun Yanli’s men and their families already made up a huge sum. Therefore, the regions had to be built accordingly to accommodate an equal number of people in each tent, so the square would not be too crowded.
Feng Ruhuo and the rest of the guardians were among the crowd. Gu Xijiu had disguised them so they could keep a low profile among the people. Being more observant of her surroundings, Feng Ruhuo had already noticed that many of Yun Yanli’s men were secretly scattered among the general public. There were at least 70 men in her region of 4,000 common people. It looks like they were prepared for any possible intrusion from the Devil Kingdom.
Feng Ruhuo could not help but smile scornfully. Yun Yanli knew that the people from the Devil Kingdom would definitely show up to save the jade statue, so he must have multiple traps set up in the square. The traps that he made were powerful but were not hidden well enough to escape the eyes of Feng Ruhuo’s third brother, Wan Hongxiu. Eventually, most of the traps were secretly destroyed. Collectively, the team was confident with their plan. Moreover, Gu Xijiu still had an ultimate killer move. Once triggered, Yun Yanli would definitely be thrown into confusion.
As time passed by, the sun was slowly rising higher. It was also a second closer to the final countdown. The bustle was getting rowdier, waiting for the ceremony to start. Finally, an ensemble of gongs and drums could be heard from afar, accompanied by loud fireworks that slowly closed in.
Amidst the sound of festivity, a group of people slowly approached the square. Feng Ruhuo was not quite expecting the type of celebration. It really did look like a wedding. All the people watched the display as the parade arrived at the designated spot.
Just like how people celebrated their weddings in the mortal world, the groom in fiery red robes was the unmistakable lead. There he was, riding a horse and guiding his men through the crowd. At the end of the parade, there would be a red wagon to take him away.
Feng Ruhuo heaved a sigh. She knew very well that the sedan cost a fortune just by the look of it. Yun Yanli seemed to care about Gu Xijiu, at least a little. She could not help but wonder how Kun Xueyi felt about the bridal sedan.
Although Feng Ruhuo was a woman, she certainly behaved rather manly. Kun Xueyi would often tease her and say that she was anything but a lady. In return, she would always make fun of Kun Xueyi’s girly appearance and his lack of manliness.
Although Kun Xueyi liked to flirt around, he did not particularly appreciate people saying that he looked like a woman. He would usually teach these people a lesson for making fun of his appearance.
Nonetheless, he had to disguise himself as a beautiful woman today. Excited, Feng Ruhuo was suddenly happy that she finally found something that she could mock Kun Xueyi with for a long while. She then took another look at the octagonal stage of elements. The stage looked like the place where Yun Yanli would place the jade statue.
