Gu Bailu wasn’t afraid that Feng Qingtian would be attracted to any of them.
She was only worried that some of them might be annoying troublemakers.
However, she had confirmed that those women weren’t cheap at all, and would be suitable partners for the Ye guards.
“You can do whatever you want.” Feng Qingtian laid his hand on her belly. “How do you feel today? Is there any nausea?”
“I’m just exhausted from vomiting.”
Feng Qingtian frowned. “When he’s out, I’m going to teach him a good lesson for you.”
“You’re the culprit. You were the one who made him.” Gu Bailu touched her belly.
After only half a year in this place, she was already pregnant.
Although Nan Ningxin had paid for her sins, the real boss behind her hadn’t been hurt at all.
“Okay, it’s all my bad. Just hit me if you’re angry.”
“Your skin is too thick for me to hurt you. Let’s just focus on the Sky Splitting Mirror.” Gu Bailu leaned her head on his shoulder. “It’s getting cold. I don’t like winter at all. I can’t go anywhere or do anything.”
“You ate the King of 9,999 Spring Harbingers; your spirit root is growing. When you have spiritual power, you won’t be cold anymore.”
Feng Qingtian quickly took her inside.
The winters here were particularly cold, but since everybody in this world had spiritual power, they weren’t really scared of it.
Most people who had no spiritual power died from the cold as infants. Hence, adults without spiritual power were rare.
Gu Bailu’s mother had taken good care of her when she was a baby without spiritual power.
“I feel power coming out every day, but I can’t feel a spirit root. Are there any other requirements?”
Like a seed which couldn’t sprout in soil unless it was watered?
“It might be faster if you have Dragon Spirit Blood. I’ll have someone look for it. However, there are only reports of it in Heavenly Wind Empire. I’ll have to ask the crown prince of that country.”
Gu Bailu asked curiously, “Isn’t he the one who has a piece of the Sky Splitting Mirror?”
Feng Qingtian nodded. “Yes. He used to have a maid who has Dragon Spirit Blood, but the maid seems to have disappeared.”
“I don’t think he’d be willing to give her to us even if she was with him.”
“Of course not. Lu Fenying is a greedy and vicious man. He even killed his own mother.”
Gu Bailu: “…”
If such a ruthless man became the emperor of Heavenly Wind Empire, it was unlikely to coexist in peace with Southern Glory Empire.
“Then forget it. If my spirit root is growing, it’ll come out eventually.”
“The emperor says that I’ll start managing the country from tomorrow onward, and that he’ll set me up as his heir. Heavenly Wind Empire will definitely send someone to congratulate me. I’ll ask them.”
Gu Bailu nodded. Since she had no spiritual power, she might as well practice her family skills first.
According to “Unusual Natural Phenomena,” her family skills were quite good and weren’t just support skills.
“Right. You asked me before if I could control souls, and you said that some people in this world are great soul controllers?”
