Every peak had the same color when they were seen from midair.
Those in red was as red as flames, the orange ones looked as similar to the sunset, and those in green were as green as the dark green pigments for dying of eyebrows, the purple ones just looked like silk
Every peak seemed to emit a certain mist which had a similar color as the peak and those mist were spreading towards the eighth peak at the center. Apparently, the colorful mist on top of the eighth peak came from the peaks nearby.
That was the beauty of the Mother Nature, as well as the spookiness of it, where everyone in the mainland was afraid of.
Although Gu Xijiu had heard Rong Jialuo talking about the geography in the Dark Forest, she was still amazed the moment she saw it - especially by the eighth peak!
Her heart was beating very fast. She looked shocked and surprised until she could not even decipher what kind of emotion she had.
Yun Qingluo was amazed too, she kept staring downwards, "Celestial Master Zuo, is the yellowish mist poisonous?"
Di Fuyi said softly, "Take a guess."
Yun Qingluo was in silence.
Gu Xijiu smiled as she knew Celestial Master Zuo was playing a trick on her. Perhaps, it was a secret
"I guess its a poisonous gas." Yun Qingluo answered and then turned around to look at Gu Xijiu, "What do you think, Miss Gu?"
Gu Xijiu took a look at the peaks and said, "Perhaps, its not poisonous but the essence emitted by the mountains. All the essences from the seven peaks are gathered at the eighth peak."
"Essence from the seven peaks? How could it be? The other peaks had no mist but the fifth peak was emitting a yellowish mist." Yun Qingluo said.
Gu Xijiu frowned.
What does he mean by only the yellowish one? How come she could see the other peaks emitting mist?
She took a look again and realized it was so clear - every peak was emitting clouds of mist and each of them had a different pattern.
When she could see it clearly, even she was shocked!
The red one was as red as a vermillion bird, the purple one looked like a flying dragon, the orange one looked like a tiger, the yellow one looked like a tortoise, and the green one looked like a snake every single one of them was different.
That kind of mist was definitely not a poisonous gas but rather, animal spirits.
Were all these seven peaks transformed from the spiritual animals? And had those mist represented their spirits?
When Gu Xijiu was still thinking, Yun Qingluo seemed to have figured out something and smiled to her, "Miss Gu, I forgot youre not the heaven's gift disciple and cant see the mist."
Gu Xijiu frowned, "Huh?"
Yun Qingluo said, "Ive heard from my father that the eight peaks in the Dark Forest were spiritual and only the heaven's gift disciple could see it, while ordinary people can't. Even The Lord's disciple could not see it. It slipped my mind and I actually shouldn't be discussing this with you."
She then asked Di Fuyi, "Celestial Master Zuo, do you think what I said was right?"
Di Fuyi looked at Gu Xijiu, "How many peaks are emitting mist?"
His eyes were staring at her and he looked nervous to hear her answer.
Gu Xijiu suddenly had an idea, "How many can Celestial Master Zuo see?"
"Im asking you!"
Gu Xijiu smiled and said, "Am I obliged to answer your question?"
Di Fuyi was speechless. He had forgotten that the little girl was like a hedgehog, which had the tendency to protect herself if she sensed danger.
"I can see all of them." Di Fuyi answered and then asked her again, "How about you?"
Gu Xijiu twitched her lips and said, "Nothing, I cant see anything." And then she continued, "I answer as such, because I'm only assuming based on speculations."
She felt there must be something strange about it. Her power was still very weak, hence, she should not disclose too much about her unique abilities
