Since Gu Xijiu was the bride today, the brothers did not fight using their full potential as they wanted to capture her alive.
Both of them were the best of partners as every single one of their attacks was fierce and accurate, and their skills were rather captivating. Many heroes and heroines had died under their cold-blooded hands.
They anticipated that they could finish the battle and arrest Gu Xijiu within 15 minutes before proceeding to arrest Di Fuyi who was watching the fight as he leaned against a pillar. However, things did not turn out as they had anticipated.
Indeed, the battle had ended within 15 minutes, but it was the brothers who had been killed instead of Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi, and their corpses were now lying on the floor.
Gu Xijiu who looked weak and timid had gotten her hair messed up a little during the battle. However, her accessories were still intact, and she was still wearing the heavy gown.
She had taken off her headgear before she fought against the ruthless brothers and had even removed all the pearls and kept it in her sleeves as a secret weapon. During the battle earlier, she had attacked the brothers with the pearls. One of it had penetrated through the elder brother's chest, and the other had hurt the younger brother's eyeball!
Though her attacks were not fancy at all, they were fast and accurate! She was even faster than lightning as the audience only saw her shadow moving around on the battlefield.
Everyone was shocked when they saw that the brothers had died with their eyes open. They seemed to be amazed as they looked at Gu Xijiu.
They could not believe that the cute and naive little girl who had been calling Mo Zhao sweetly every day could beat two ferocious men!
Everyone had thought that she was just a weak girl and none of them could imagine that she would turn into an arrogant queen when she had recovered from her amnesia!
She had killed three people in a single battle, which were the brothers and also a bastard who had secretly attacked Di Fuyi while she was fighting the brothers!
When the battlefield returned to its silence, Gu Xijiu had landed beside Di Fuyi with an intense look on her face. However, she asked caringly, "How are you feeling? Did he hurt you?"
Di Fuyi shook his head. "No, luckily you came back in time to rescue me."
Gu Xijiu let out a sigh of relief. She flipped her hair which had covered her eyes as she frowned. Her hair was too long, and it was somewhat inconvenient for her to fight. However, she could not find anything that she could use to tie it up. Therefore, she narrowed her eyes and cut off her long hair with the sword in her hand!
She was fast and accurate, and within seconds, her waist-length hair had fallen to the floor.
Everyone including Di Fuyi was shocked as her long hair had become very neat and short now. Youngsters in that era were not allowed to cut their hair as they liked since they had to be respectful to their parents' wishes for bringing them into the world.
During that era, cutting one's hair usually symbolized that one was trying to sever all the bonds between themselves and their lover or that one was ready to become a nun in the temple. It seemed like everyone was shocked by her action.
Even the musician who was still playing the zenith eeked as she witnessed Gu Xijiu cut her long hair.
Di Fuyi looked at the long hair in her hand and then he looked at her again. "What are you doing?"
Gu Xijiu kept the hair underneath her sleeves as it could be used as her secret weapon as well. She did not want to waste the resources she had at the moment.
