Since she stepped out from the forest, she had silenced them. Although they were still very upset with her, they could not fight back.
Gu Xijiu took a glimpse of them and spoke, "Actually I'm really curious, where did you get to know all those gossips if the Tianju Hall is isolated from the outside world?"
"Hmph! Its better not to do it if you dont want it to be known. All your news has been spread throughout the mainland!" One of the teenagers twitched his mouth.
"Then who is the one who told you these?"
All the teenagers frowned one after another, "Dont bother to ask as we wouldnt tell you. Anyway, people wouldnt simply create a story."
"Youre right. It has nothing to do with where we heard it from."
They began to judge and criticize again.
Gu Xijiu listened to their conversation patiently and suddenly said, "You only heard it from someone else, but have you really seen it by yourself?"
"So, do you mean what we heard isn't the truth?"
The teenagers began to argue again and felt they were like heroes with a good sense of justice.
Gu Xijiu smiled sarcastically as she realized the keyboard warriors were everywhere regardless of the dynasty. They were either talking nonsense randomly in the cyber era or simply spreading untrue scandals in this period.
It seems like everything about her has been spread all around the school. Tianju Hall was isolated. Hence, the students could not simply go out. Therefore, they were not supposed to know so much, unless someone was trying to get her into trouble and get the rest to boycott her.
Anyway, rumors were unstoppable and unexplainable. The more she explained, the worse it became. Therefore, Gu Xijiu did not plan to explain anything to them. However, someone asked, "Gu Xijiu, do you dare to say those rumors are untrue? Do you dare to swear that your siblings deaths had nothing to do with you? And do you dare to say that it was not you who caused the fall of Gu family?"
Gu Xijiu smiled and asked, "When A had killed B, you only see B is dead. However, have you wondered why B was killed? Perhaps, he died from a fight, or he died from a robbery, or maybe he was really a bastard who had done many bad things in the first place? So, A killed B to punish B on behalf of God. You guys only saw the result, but never bothered to ask the process. Even if you had seen everything by yourself, it could be completely different if you don't interpret it properly. What more if you only simply heard it from someone who didn't know the truth!"
The teenagers remained silent.
Gu Xijiu blew her fingers and said calmly, "Perhaps, you think you have a very good sense of justice, but who knows you are just unknowingly helping someone to achieve their personal goals"
The teenagers were speechless.
Gu Xijiu was cleaning her fingernails and suddenly realized she was behaving as though she was possessed by a discipline teacher while teaching the kids a lesson. Naive kids were not easy to teach, especially those who were talented.
And now, these naive kids did not dare to speak anymore. She had no idea whether they had learned their lesson, but she did not even bother to know.
She walked towards the mussel and then looked at Qian Lingyu who was still looking at her. She asked, "Hey guys, tell me whats going on?"
Qian Lingyu did not really want to talk about it. However, the mussel acted as though it has seen its maternity family and told her every single detail. In fact, it was a very simple incident. The mussel was hunting, and so was Qian Lingyu...
