The fourth prince behaved like a proud peacock as he liked to show off his collection. Therefore, it was no longer a secret, as there were a few people who already knew that he had a Divine Garnet Furnace in his mansion.
Sadly, he could not deny it when Gu Xijiu wanted it as the reward.
He was judging Gu Xijiu and said, "Indeed, I have an alchemy furnace in my mansion, but what do you want to do with it? You know how to produce medicine?"
Gu Xixi said sarcastically, "Your Highness, you must be joking. One has to achieve a level four of spirit power, along with good elements from wood and fire in order to produce medicine.
However, Miss Gu has zero spirit power but an intelligent mouth!"
Gu Xijiu smiled and said, "I just want a reward. Maybe I might just use it for play and entertainment? Are you giving it to me or not?"
Rong Chu replied, "Little girl, this is not a small reward! What if you lose the bet?"
He evilly looked at Gu Xijiu and said, "Dont tell me youre going to marry me or give me your life, as tens of your life will never be enough to pay for the furnace!"
Gu Xijiu said calmly, "Coincidentally, I have nothing but my life. Since Your Highness insists that I bet with something equivalent to the value of the furnace, I think I'll just give up as my life is invaluable."
Rong Chu was speechless.
Was this little girl really giving up? Had she deliberately request for a treasure to defeat him?
Gu Xixi was upset; she would not forgive her for the insult!
"I'll bet against you!" Gu Xixi voiced out straightforwardly. She continued, "You want the alchemy furnace right? I'll give it to you. But if you lose, you're going to pay the price! I'm a kind person, I don't want your life but I'll need you to promise me two things."
"Tell me." Gu Xijiu asked.
"Firstly, if you fail to provide three pieces of evidence, your engagement with the twelfth prince will be annulled and you can't be married to another guy - only to the twelfth prince as a mistress.
You will never be the official concubine! Secondly, your mouth annoys me so much! If you lose the bet, then you should cut off your tongue!"
Those were very evil conditions.
Gu Xietian frowned and said, "Tianwen Saint, she is still a kid. You dont have to care about what she said."
Gu Xixi answered arrogantly, "How could a Saint feel insulted?" She then asked Gu Xijiu, "Deal? Or no deal?"
Gu Xijiu smiled and said, "Why not? Deal! But what kind of furnace you're giving me as a reward?"
Gu Xixi brandished an alchemy furnace from her bag and said, "Here is your reward!"
As a student of the Tianwen clan, Gu Xixi was using a special furnace with had emitted a nice fragrance!
However, Gu Xijiu was not really happy with it. She glanced at Rong Chu and said, "I've just realized that the fourth prince cant let go of his alchemy furnace. Thats why he needs to use the furnace from the Saint."
Rong Chu was mad and said, "Fine! Use my furnace! It's also not necessary for the Tianwen Saint to join the bet." He instructed his guard to bring the furnace.
Gu Xixi was panicking as she was planning to get the furnace from the fourth prince if she loses the bet...
Apparently, Gu Xijiu had ruined her plan and now, she could not go against his words.
