The Emperor was stunned and looked at Gu Xijiu, "Xijiu, how did you get this talent? Tell me."
The Emperor looked confused, and everyone had the same feeling too! Gu Xijiu noticed their response and quickly asked the Firmament Stone for help.
The Firmament Stone answered, "There are people who gained certain talents from the gods. For example, Celestial Master Zuo and You, as well as the overlords of the three clans obtained their respective talents from the gods and established their factions. If you encounter a similar situation, that means that you were sent by the gods and would be able to rank as high as the celestial masters! Since you aren't, your lie was exaggerated!"
Gu Xijiu was having a headache and asked, "Then, how did these people get their talent?"
The Firmament Stone replied depressingly, "Thats a secret! No one knows, not even me."
Even the Firmament Stone did not know, not to mention those people at the scene.
Gu Xijiu remained silent, and the Emperor assumed she was hesitating to tell and said, "Xijiu, its alright. Its a good thing to be blessed with talent from the gods; youll not be facing any disaster."
Gu Xijiu looked at him and replied, "Your Majesty, this is a highly confidential matter. I can only tell you that I got it in my dream and I also promised the person in the dream that Id never tell anyone else."
The Emperor remained silent, and so did everyone in the basilica.
Rong Chu suddenly said, "Father, Emperor, this is not a small thing. I think we might need to get help from Celestial Master Zuo to prove it."
The Emperor frowned, "Its very difficult to find him, he is probably not in his residence now."
"Father Emperor, according to the report, Celestial Master Zuo had returned to Fucang Hall last night. Perhaps, he is still in now. Should we get someone to invite him?"
It was difficult for the Emperor to reject his suggestion. He nodded and looked at Gu Xijiu, "Xijiu, this is a critical matter. Since you claimed that you got it from the gods, well have to get the Celestial Master Zuo to verify."
He then told the bodyguard to invite the Celestial Master, "Go and invite Celestial Master Zuo for verification."
Gu Xijiu remained silent.
"Whats wrong? Why do they need verification?" Gu Xijiu asked the Firmament Stone nervously.
The Firmament Stone replied, "Of course! Obtaining talents from the gods isn't something small. If everyone simply says that, it will cause chaos in the world. Therefore, those who claimed that they receive power from the gods will need to undergo verification"
"Is Celestial Master Zuo the only one who can verify?"
"Yes, he is the only one who can verify."
"Can he differentiate?"
"Yes. Many years ago, someone who was very talented faked the truth, and Celestial Master Zuo discovered his lie and"
"And what?" Gu Xijiu was panicked.
"Nothing much. Celestial Master Zuo removed all his kung fu skills and threw him into the dark forest."
Gu Xijiu remained silent.
"My body is useless, and I have no spiritual power. I guess there's nothing to be afraid of even if they found out that I was lying."
"What if he could make you into a paralyzed person? All your veins would be injured, and they could permanently restrict your movements." The Firmament Stone demoralized her.
