316 The Faster You Are, the More Miserably You“ll Die
The gaps in between the 9,999 Spring Harbingers were identical, and only big enough for one person to squeeze through.
Even so, one had to be extra careful, because their clothes might accidentally brush against the flowers.
One touch and the fragile flowers would be ruined.
Though Gu Bailu entered the flowers first, she walked extremely slowly and wrapped her clothes more tightly around herself to prevent them from touching the 9,999 Spring Harbingers.
Nan Ningxin did the same.
She didn’t dare be too fast at first. After all, it was Gu Bailu who had proposed this match, and Nan Ningxin was worried that there might be traps.
But even after a while, she didn’t find any on the floor.
The flowers were beautiful, and there was nothing wrong with them at all.
“Ah…” Gu Bailu exclaimed and managed to maintain her balance. “I almost lost.”
She patted her chest, her heart pounding.
Nan Ningxin, however, walked steadily.
Smiling, she sped up. She thought that Gu Bailu had proposed the match because Prince Zi wouldn’t do anything to her even if she ruined the 9,999 Spring Harbingers, but if Nan Ningxin ruined them, other people would say that she did it on purpose, and Prince Zi wouldn’t feel that he owed her anything anymore.
Well… Nan Ningxin decided to accept the challenge. She wouldn’t touch the 9,999 Spring Harbingers.
Gu Bailu walked even more carefully to avoid the 9,999 Spring Harbingers.
Nan Ningxin was already a dozen meters ahead of her.
However, Gu Bailu didn’t seem anxious at all.
“Miss Nan, the faster you walk, the more miserable your death might be. You better be careful!” Gu Bailu reminded her generously since she liked a fair game.
Well, she was an honest woman.
But Nan Ningxin thought that Gu Bailu was bluffing because she couldn’t catch up. She examined the environment and didn’t see any danger.
All she needed to do was keep her balance and stay away from the flowers.
Gu Bailu carefully accelerated, trying to catch up with Nan Ningxin.
As she walked, she said to the flowers nearby, “You’re really beautiful. Forgive my intrusion.”
Everyone watching held their breaths, fearing that these two might accidentally ruin all the flowers.
It wouldn’t feel great to watch something so beautiful be destroyed.
However, both Nan Ningxin and Gu Bailu walked steadily, and the flowers were still blooming.
Everybody wanted Miss Murong to hurry up and reach the end so that the match would be over.
“Princess Zi, why are you talking? Focus on walking!” Bu Yaolian was rather anxious because Miss Murong was way ahead of her.
Gu Bailu replied loudly, “There’s no need to rush. More haste, less speed.”
Speed wasn’t the only thing she needed to win this race.
Nan Ningxin looked back at her in confusion, wondering why Gu Bailu didn’t seem as hasty as a moment ago.
She stopped and looked around suspiciously. Sensing no danger, she felt that Gu Bailu was only bluffing.
She started moving again. However, she barely took a step forward when something crawled out in front of her eyes, and she was about to fall.
She wanted to control her balance, but then realized that her spiritual power had disappeared.
Nan Ningxin was shocked. What on earth was that? What was the thing that had crawled out just now?
