Then, she dedicated herself to the chicken once more.
Gu Bailu decided to check the situation again. If she had a chance, she would send out the candidates of the Gu family to participate in the game.
What? There were no candidates from the Gu family?
Of course there were. She and Ah Luo would be enough.
Though she had suffered setbacks because of the Archfiend, she was confident she could deal with these people. She had even defeated the principal of Cloud Mirror Academy before…
She had to seize the chance, whether or not she was successful in the end.
Now that she had hired so many people, not only did she need to support them with food and money, she also had to give them hope to live on.
With the Holy Fruit, these people with low spiritual power might become hopeful again.
It could also bring her tremendous benefits.
“Ah Luo, eat faster. We’ll go together and kick that annoying Bai family out of the four families.”
Bai Zhaozhao and the eighth daughter of the Bai family were obviously spoiled, which indicated that the family wasn’t a decent one.
Gu Bailu didn’t feel guilty about elbowing them out.
She came up with a good plan.
The game was still going on. Apart from the four teams from the four families, some other families had sent out their best descendants too.
They were unleashing storms, fire and lightning, creating a rather impressive sight.
Gu Bailu quite enjoyed the show. It would be quite fun if a flame accidentally drifted toward the emperor or the empress dowager.
Just as she expected, when one of the contestants unleashed fiery spiritual power, someone else blew wind at it, but the wind didn’t extinguish the fire, and instead pushed it toward the throne.
The emperor’s guards reacted swiftly enough to build a wall of ice to block the fire.
“Useless crap. Why are you in this game if you can’t control your own spiritual power? Pull him down!” roared the emperor.
The contestant was immediately dragged down by the royal guards; things probably wouldn’t end well for him.
Gu Bailu chuckled and was about to have some tea, when an ice shard with a sharp tip was flung at her…
Hm… Was it so dangerous to be an audience member?
Gu Bailu quickly drew a cross and blew it away, and it veered off to hit the head of a lady at another table.
The lady cried out in pain and collapsed.
Gu Bailu hurriedly rushed over, ready to apologize, when she discovered that the woman was very much like Bai Zhaozhao.
She then looked at the label next to the table, which said “Bai.”
Gu Bailu said with a cryptic smile, “My lady, it was someone from your family who accidentally hurt you. It wasn’t my fault.”
She had been observing the contestants because she wanted to kick the Bai family out of the four families. She knew that it was someone from the Bai family who had aimed the ice poorly.
“You…” The lady rose and glared at her. “What’s with that attitude?”
Gu Bailu tugged her cloak around her and said, “You were bitten by your own dog, my lady. What attitude do you want me to have?”
She raised an eyebrow, ready to beat up whoever was angry with her.
