The Lord set the rules in the Tianju Hall, and Gu Canmo was its most strict implementer. Ever since it was built, he had never accepted any student who wanted to enter through connections.
Gu Xijiu was the only exception and that against his principles, but he could not reject. Therefore, she was the person he was most upset with and was the thorn in his heart.
When he was unhappy with a person, everything the person did would be wrong in his eyes. Thus, he was more than happy to kick Gu Xijiu out of the Tianju Hall. Especially when there were two students killed on the first day she arrived. It increased his dissatisfaction with her to the extreme! He did not even want to listen to the claim made by Gu Xijiu.
The discipline guru at the side refuted the claim made by Gu Xijiu, "Gu Xijiu, stop your quibble! It was their fault when they tried to ruin your house. You could have hit or injure them, but you should not kill them. How are we going to tell their parents that their sons were killed in the Tianju Hall? Don't tell us that they had agreed to your deal because you had threatened them. We don't have students in the Tianju Hall who easily breaks their principles. I am sure that they did not want to agree with you and you were angry with them, so you sent the big mussel to kill them!"
Gu Xijiu sneered, "If I wanted to kill them, would I throw their dead bodies nearby my house and let you discover it?"
Gu Xijiu's reply choked the discipline guru, however, Gu Canmo interrupted, "I have heard that you are very cunning. How do we know if you intentionally did it to purposely expose the big flaw so that you can use it as an excuse? Even if you did not order it, the big mussel was the murderer. There is no doubt about that. Perhaps it was accustomed to eating humans, so it secretly went out and killed people."
Gu Xijiu said, "It is not logical. If the big mussel wanted to eat a human, why would it leave the two complete bodies for you all to find? If the big mussel did it, it would not even leave a single hair."
"Stop talking nonsense! No matter how you defend yourself, it is a fact that the two students were killed by the shell of the big mussel. Gu Xijiu, I don't want to argue with you anymore. Up to this point, you still try to shirk from your sin when two people are dead. I am very disappointed with you. I will send you to the jail to wait for the judge!"
It was an impregnable jail.
Gu Xijiu was escorted into an iron chamber like a prisoner. Someone might have told the gurus that she knew how to teleport. Thus she was chained to the wall.
The iron chain was specially made. There was an intricate pattern on the chain which was said to be used to lock the devil. Once this chain locked the devil, it could not run away anymore.
Gu Xijiu did not know if this chain could lock the devil, but she knew that it did seal her mobility. Her limbs were all locked by this chain, and she could not move anymore.
She was locked up for half a day, and she could not feel her limbs anymore despite not being able to struggle out of it. She just closed her eyes.
She had been very cautious but still fell into a trap that was carefully planned. The question is, who was the one who set the trap? Was it Gu Canmo? It should not be him, right? Although he could do so, he was an old-fashioned man.
