Chapter 21: The Stern Crown Prince (5)
“Ladies and gentlemen,” Shiyun’s weak smile carried warmth as she said with a gentle gaze, “In order to test your ability, our Lianqi Sect’s elders have specially brought out our Heavenly Spirit spell formation. In a moment’s time, I will send you into the Heavenly Spirit formation to train for a month, we will determine if you qualify to enter the Lianqi Sect based on your results a month later.”
Even if they did not know what the Heavenly Spirit formation was, since it was a treasure passed down in the Lianqi Sect, they deduced that it must be very valuable. They would definitely cherish this opportunity…
The crown prince who had not spoken up from start to finish, Leng Yanfeng, paused as he passed by Gu Ruoyun, and without turning to look at her, only that slow and solemn voice resounded.
“Gu Ruoyun, what you did just now was just to show off your individuality, to attract this crown prince’s attention, but unfortunately, this crown prince’s eyes were never on you…”
After saying so, he disappeared from Gu Ruoyun’s sight without looking back.
Gu Ruoyun was somewhat dumbfounded. When she was in the Dongyue mainland, even Jin Di was not qualified to make her kneel down, so why would she kneel before a little crown prince? But her behaviour somehow let the crown prince think that she wanted to attract his attention?
Back then, Gu Shengxiao, as a genius, would often duel with Leng Yanfeng, and at every place they met, they would be Gu Ruoyun. Everyone assumed that she was using Gu Shengxiao to get close to Leng Yanfeng, but they did not know that every time the two pitted their skills against each other, she only ever paid attention to her older brother.
So the previous Gu Ruoyun did not even like Leng Yanfeng, much less the current her!
“Gu Ruoyun, so you really liked the crown prince!” Gu Panpan was enraged, fiercely staring at Gu Ruoyun, “You denied liking the crown prince that that time, but now you’re actually using such tricks to get his attention! Luckily the crown prince saw through your tricks, otherwise…”
Glancing at the gazes thrown at her by the crowd, Gu Ruoyun blinked innocently: “What’s a crown prince? Is it edible?”
“Edible? You actually want to eat up the crown prince?! Gu Ruoyun, as expected, you didn’t hold any good intentions!”
This time, even speaking with ten mouths would not be able to clear her innocence…
Gu Ruoyun shook her head, lazy to explain anything more, she shrugged and said: “Luo Yin, let’s go inside and see.”
In the palace compound. Everyone quieted down, any noise disappeared before the two elders.
Luo Yin pointed towards one of them and said: “Gu Ruoyun, do you see that old man in black? That’s the crown prince’s teacher Hun Fei, the other old man in red is Elder Tian Lin, both of them are Lianqi Sect’s experts.”
Gu Ruoyun nodded, her line of sight moved from the two men and landed on the pillar next to them.
If she guessed it right, the door the four pillars were surrounding was the entrance to the Heavenly Spirit formation…
“Ladies and gentlemen, with your current strength, I’m only letting you into the first level of the Heavenly Spirit formation. Remember, you should stay within the designated area, please don’t run around wildly, you might meet danger if you run to other areas!”
Hun Fei looked at the crowd with a serious expression: “In addition, the spiritual Qi in the Heavenly Spirit formation is too dense, so your strength has to be at least Qi level 3, otherwise you won’t be able to withstand the tremendous power inside and explode. I’m not trying to scare you, but I believe that anyone who is below Qi level 3 won’t be able to pass.”
“This…” Hearing this, Gu Panpan looked like she had something to say, but was hesitating.
Her demeanour attracted Elder Hun Fei, of course, who furrowed his brows and asked: “Does this lady have anything to say?”
TL note: In case you don’t remember, Jin Di was last mentioned in Chapter 8, where she compared his beauty to Zixie’s. On a side note, Jin Di (金帝) means golden emperor – but this is his name, he’s not an emperor.
