She couldn’t wait for the party to be over so that she could kill Gu Bailu.
Gu Bailu smiled and said, “Thank you for your leniency, my lady.”
She then returned to her table and established a barrier around it, in case anyone “accidentally” released their spiritual power in her direction and ruined her fun.
Actually, the contestants in the game now were top experts, and few of them would lose control of their spiritual power.
They were only using the pretext of the game to attack their personal enemies.
However, who was the emperor’s personal enemy?
Gu Bailu looked at Feng Qingtian, who had been watching the game solemnly, and wondered what the guy’s plan was. Was he really going to usurp the emperor?
But that wasn’t allowed in the royal family.
It was possible that he would engineer the emperor’s death somehow.
Feng Qingtian didn’t look at Gu Bailu, but he knew that Gu Bailu was looking at him.
He waved his hand, and Qin Shou lowered his head. “What’s your order, my lord?”
“Give the princess a note and tell her to leave beforehand.”
If the girl drew more attention, someone would notice her.
“Okay, at once.” Qin Shou immediately gave a secret instruction.
When the waiter served the eighteenth plate of chicken, he passed a note to Gu Bailu.
Surprised, Gu Bailu looked at Feng Qingtian, but he still didn’t look at her at all. He was really a great actor.
She opened the note, only to see that he was telling her to leave the party beforehand.
That wasn’t an option. She had to become one of the four families.
Gu Bailu drew a rune on the note and chanted a spell, and the note soon burnt to ash.
“Your Highness, Your Majesty, four groups of experts have been screened out…”
All the noble families had sent out their best candidates, but none could defeat those from the four families.
“Very well; in line with the tradition of the Sword Test, the four winning groups from the four families will represent Southern Glory Empire, and will be boosted by a Holy Fruit and enjoy the royal legacy…”
Before the emperor could finish, a female voice interrupted him. “Your Majesty, Ah Luo won the game just now and never participated later. Why are you saying that the game is already over?”
The emperor frowned. It was her again!
What was she up to this time?
The emperor subconsciously looked at Feng Qingtian, but Feng Qingtian showed no interest at all.
Did he have no feelings for this woman at all?
“You think you can defeat the four families with your maid?” The emperor thought that she was kidding.
“Your Majesty, there’s still me. I’ll fight alongside Ah Luo.”
“But you’re still missing one candidate. This is a three-on-three game.” The emperor was of a mind to tell her to get the hell out.
This was a serious test. However strong her maid was, it was impossible for them to beat the top elites of the four families.
“Two people can’t participate in a three-on-three game?” asked Gu Bailu, who was amused by the excuse.
The empress dowager said, “Miss Gu, they really can’t. If you can’t find three contestants for the game, that means that there are too few talents in your family.”
Gu Bailu was lost for words.
