“There is no such rule, but in any case, your method is not the right way.”
“Your Majesty, whoever beats their opponent is the winner, no matter how they do it. Besides, I fought them fair and square without using any traps, didn’t I? Are you saying this method doesn’t work just because you aren’t capable of it?”
“Father, she violated the rules of the contest. The world will be in chaos if everybody fights like that.”
Gu Bailu snorted. “You’re right that the world will be in chaos. Spiritual power will no longer be held up so loftily, and the garbage will have their day.”
“How arrogant. It was just a petty trick, and you think that you’re so good at it,” said the second prince scornfully.
“I might not be good at many things, but I’m certainly good at elbowing the second prince.” Gu Bailu smiled.
Everybody smiled as well. Last time, the second prince was heavily wounded after a gentle nudge from Gu Bailu.
The second prince was infuriated and the emperor was a little embarrassed as well. The empress dowager thought for a moment before she said, “The Gu family has indeed won. Nobody cares how you win in a real battle as long as your opponent is dead. So, the Gu family is the winner.”
The leader of the Bai family wasn’t happy. “Your Highness, Your Majesty, it wasn’t stated before the battle that the use of all tricks is allowed. We demand a rematch.”
Gu Bailu scoffed. “Are there any more candidates from the Bai family?”
If she remembered correctly, those guys just now were already the best young men of the Bai family.
“The Bai family is full of talents who all have their own tricks,” said the leader of the Bai family affirmatively.
Gu Bailu chuckled. “And I’m sure that shamelessness is one of them. Leader Bai, I have no time for a rematch. If you’re unwilling to acknowledge your defeat, let’s have a family contest. Whichever family loses will dissolve itself. Are you up for that?”
Everybody in the Bai family was furious. How could the Bai family and the Gu family be the same?
Who did the Gu family have? Nobody except Gu Bailu and her servants.
But the Bai family was a big one with thousands of descendants.
“You don’t have the guts to do it? Then you should give up already. You know that you can’t defeat the Gu family.” Gu Bailu turned to the empress dowager. “Your Highness, the leader of the Bai family has acknowledged their defeat.”
So, let’s stop wasting each other’s time and just kick them out of the top four families.
“Who says that the Bai family doesn’t have the courage to take up the challenge? We’ll do it.” A clear voice rang out. Gu Bailu turned around to see a gorgeous man.
He had a pretty face and was wearing a gray robe, and was as charming as a deity from above. His red lips were full and perfect and utterly kissable.
He wasn’t as captivating as Feng Qingtian or Gu Yunjing, but he gave off the feeling of a gentle breeze and looked like a heavenly being.
How could the Bai family have such a gorgeous man?
There was no way.
He didn’t seem like he belonged to the Bai family at all.
