Should she find a random person to fill the spot?
But nobody here would be willing. They all thought that she and Ah Luo would lose.
They certainly didn’t plan to get killed.
Gu Bailu spoke to the girl next to her. “Would you like to fight as a representative of the Gu family for ten thousand taels of gold?”
The girl looked at her as if she was crazy. “You can get yourself killed if you want, but don’t drag me into it.”
Ah Luo raised a piece of chicken and asked, “Can chicken count as a contestant?”
Everybody was lost for words.
Were the garbage and the idiot really going to join the competition?
They had to be kidding.
“Your Majesty, the Sword Test has to proceed until we have a winner. We can’t delay anymore.”
“Then the four families will continue…”
“I’m with the Gu family.” Just as the emperor was going to announce that the competition among the four families would proceed, someone shouted from the back.
Everybody turned around for a look, only to see that it was a fatty.
The woman who stood up was in orange clothes which were so big that they would be a sheet on anyone else. There was nothing remarkable about her face either.
“Bu Yaolian!” Gu Bailu looked at her in surprise, not expecting her to be here.
Bu Yaolian had come to the royal palace with her grandfather. Their family was rich, but their spiritual power wasn’t good enough, so their seats had been arranged at the back of the hall. She hadn’t had the chance to greet Gu Bailu.
“Lulu!” Bu Yaolian ran toward her, excited that she finally had a chance to hug her idol.
Startled, Gu Bailu stepped back and said, “Don’t be so excited. Just walk slowly.”
Bu Yaolian stopped in front of her and chuckled. “You’re pregnant, I won’t hug you. But you have to count me in this fight.”
Gu Bailu patted her shoulder and said, “Good girl! You’re truly a loyal friend from Class H.”
Who said that everybody in this world was indifferent?
No! A lot of people hadn’t lost their conscience yet even though they had low spiritual power.
“Hahahaha…” Someone suddenly said mockingly, “An idiot, a piece of garbage, and a fat pig plan to fight the elites of the four families. How amusing… Ah…”
As the second prince was laughing like crazy, a huge piece of meat was jammed into his mouth.
Ah Luo said regretfully, “My lady, I’ve lost a piece of the chicken. I wonder if the empress dowager will reimburse me for it.”
“She will if we win the game.” Gu Bailu comforted her.
“Your Highness, Your Majesty, I don’t think it’s appropriate. They aren’t qualified to take the Sword Test at all…” a Bai family member got up and said.
The second prince pulled the chicken out of his mouth and roared, “You idiot, you attacked me!”
This time, Ah Luo simply swung a plate of chicken at him.
But the second prince wasn’t so stupid this time, and his guards blocked the danger in advance.
“When your mouth is foul, it should be sealed,” said Ah Luo matter-of-factly.
The empress dowager immediately roared, “Enough quarreling. Mr. Bai is right. If you represent Southern Glory Empire, the other two countries will mock us, so just stay back, or don’t blame me for being rude.”
“Your Highness, what is the qualification to take the Sword Test?” asked Gu Bailu.
