The mussel was looking at her with its shell opened. While looking at her determined and stubborn face, it suddenly felt relieved.
Its master was a tough person and had never disappointed anyone yet!
"Master I just dont want to see you being bullied. They are obviously snobs who despise you"
Gu Xijiu said indifferently, "Mussel, if you want people to respect you, you have to prove it with your own strength."
The world is ruthless, and only the fittest survive. Therefore, if you want to survive in this world, you would have to be strong! When you are truly strong, people will respect you and dare not look down on you. She wanted to be at the top of this world one day where everyone would admire her, and nobody would be able to control and instruct her.
She abruptly clapped her hands, "Alright, stop talking nonsense, lets start working!"
When she was an assassin, she had been trained to survive in the wild. Therefore, it was easy for her to build a simple house.
Unfortunately, Di Fuyi had confiscated the tent she made. Otherwise, she could set it up here directly.
The mussel looked at the stones scattering around, "Master, how can we do it?"
With a palm strike, Gu Xijiu sliced a stone, and with her palm slanting like slicing through tofu. She was turning the irregular stones into regular sizes.
The mussel understood what to do and it was good at handling stones!
It exerted its spiritual power and immediately jumped a few times on the ground to separate the huge rocks from the small ones. Then, the mussel erected one of its shell and chiseled swiftly through these rocks.
As the stone chippings filled the air, brick-like stones appeared.
Gu Xijiu's eyes were brightened when she saw the angular stones. She did not expect that the mussel had such skills too. Its shell was much better than a diamond saw!
As the mussel was handling the rocks, Gu Xijiu decided to work on stacking the rocks together. They coordinated smoothly with each other.
Lu Wu was rather unhappy that she was not able to help.
As they kept working, the place where they were became very dusty, and Lu Wu's beautiful purple fur had almost turned yellow. The dust made it sneeze too.
When Gu Xijiu took a slight glance at it, its eyes immediately turned watery. It was staring at her while its nine tails were grasping on her wrist.
Gu Xijiu patted its head, "Be good and play by yourself first. Ill bathe you after I finish building the house later."
Lu Wu obeyed and went aside.
When one is busy, the time passes by very quickly. Without knowing, a day had gone.
The sun went down, and the moon rose up.
The framework of Gu Xijius stone house had finally formed. Even the scattered pieces of wood were used to support the house with the thickest ones being the supporting beam.
The weeds were harvested and tied to be put on the house beam as the thatched roof.
While Gu Xijiu was busy working, some students of the Tianju Hall who passed through were looking at her work. Some ignored it while others criticized from afar but none of them wanted to help.
Gu Xijiu also heard some of the gossips they said.
It seemed that her identity as an unofficial student had spread throughout the community.
Those gossips were something as below:
"So, shes the unofficial student? She doesn't look special after all. Why would The Lord accept her as his disciple?"
