Gu Bailu smiled. “Alright, since you’re obedient, I’ll let you go, but stay quiet and don’t interrupt my training.”
She released the rune, and the three frogs fell into the mud.
It was quiet again for a short while. Gu Bailu closed her eyes and focused on the Heavenly Eye.
However, she soon heard noises again.
“That clown must be a witch.”
“She’s a devil.”
Gu Bailu glared at them. I’m such a cute and lovely woman. Do I look like a devil at all?
“Shut up! I am a goddess.”
Gu Bailu roared, and the three frogs crawled into the mud.
She meditated again. Hardly had she stepped on the rainbow path when she heard croaking again.
Gu Bailu stood up in a fury and tied them up with runes. Ignoring their complaints, she simply tossed them into her ring.
The world was finally peaceful again after she sealed the ring.
She sat down, but was in no mood to open the Heavenly Eye anymore.
Was the Nether King really blind?
That was different from what she had in mind…
But how strong was he, that he could be so arrogant when he was blind?
She wondered what was going on with Feng Qingtian and if he had met the Nether King.
She noticed her shoes. She had forgotten to give them back.
So, he had gone barefoot…
Feng Qingtian sat in the Nether King’s palace for an hour with bare feet before the latter finally showed up.
Sensing that someone was in his room, he asked, “Who is it?”
Few people in the world could enter his palace.
“It’s me,” Feng Qingtian replied casually.
The Nether King relaxed. He asked lightly, “What brings you here?”
“There’s someone you can’t detain.” Feng Qingtian looked at the Nether King, who still looked the same after so many years.
The Nether King’s special robe was strewn with ghosts and skeletons. It was quite depressing.
He always wore a thin black mask. Nobody had ever seen his real face.
Nobody had even seen his eyes, because his mask hid them.
Even Feng Qingtian had never seen them, not because he couldn’t, but because he wasn’t interested.
“Who is it?” The Nether King sat down and poured Feng Qingtian a glass of wine. “Who in the world is worthy enough for you to come in person?”
“My woman.” Feng Qingtian accepted the wine but didn’t drink it.
“When did I touch your woman?” The Nether King found it odd.
“She’s Gu Bailu.”
The Nether King drank up the wine. “Nobody can talk me out of catching her.”
Feng Qingtian narrowed his eyes. “This isn’t up for discussion.”
The Nether King filled his cup. “Are you going to fight me over a woman, Prince Zi?”
Feng Qingtian said the words coldly before he left the palace.
The Nether King finished his drink again and gripped the cup tightly. Why was Feng Qingtian involved in this?
“Nether King, Cloud Mirror Academy is defending her. If Prince Zi is also infuriated…” The Nether King’s ghost shadow approached.
Prince Zi certainly hadn’t been joking.
“I didn’t know that Murong Qianyue had such a great helper.” The Nether King crushed the cup in his hand.
“Murong Qianyue can’t be far away. Keep searching for her. Meanwhile, don’t clash with that woman from Cloud Mirror Academy.”
The ghost shadow was relieved. “A wise decision, Nether King. It’s more than easy to catch Murong Qianyue in secret.”
The Nether King looked out of the palace, but Feng Qingtian was nowhere to be seen.
He murmured, “He’s the last person that I want as my enemy.”
