Furthermore, they were also hurt in the illusion, but what they suffered were just internal injuries. These youths were too arrogant to expose their injuries. Generally, they were the ones who suffered most of the losses. Yet, they could not say anything about it.
The two choices that Gu Xijiu had offered were not difficult for them to choose from. Even though the youths hesitated to concede, they still had to make some formal remarks to her before leaving. The lakeside then returned to its usual tranquility.
Gu Xijiu took out the medicine and applied it on the mussel and Qian Lingyu. The medicine was given to her by The Lord. It was very impressive. After about an hour, they were back alive and kicking.
The mussel went off to hunt again, leaving Gu Xijiu and Qian Lingyu behind. Qian Lingyu thought to himself that he must be a coward to Gu Xijiu. Therefore, he was rather dispirited and sat there quietly. The kid who was once in high and vigorous spirits was already gone.
Gu Xijiu seemed to disregard his presence and kept herself busy by gathering wood. Qian Lingyu deteriorated for a while. Then, he felt a little guilty, so he got up to help her gather the wood. When both of them were together again, he finally had enough courage to strike up a conversation with her, "Gu Xijiu, youre really good! Words were enough to make those people surrender without fighting."
Gu Xijiu did not look at him and responded nonchalantly, "You can do even better."
Qian Lingyu looked down and said, "I I cant be good. They They used to look down on me! My power is indeed incomparable to theirs, and I used to be the last in the Liuyun class."
He only wanted to prove his existence by acting arrogantly and trying to get Gu Xijiu into trouble. Instead, they become friends.
"So youre hopeless and reckless?" asked Gu Xijiu.
Qian Lingyu could not say anything back. He kept his head down and stayed quiet.
Gu Xijiu had done some research about Qian Lingyu's situation from Rong Che. Since young, he had been the best among the geniuses, which was the reason why he was here in Tianju Hall. Based on his intelligence, he should be able to make it make it into the Ziyun class without a problem, but why didn't he? He even became the last in the class.
Gu Xijiu took another look at him. His eyes sagged and his body shrunk like a rooster that had lost a battle. Gu Xijiu rubbed the space between her brows and thought to herself - what a problematic youth. However, he was a little boy with a good heart. Although he used to behave arrogantly, what he did was indeed for her own good.
Now that she was in trouble this time, he was very anxious and asked for her everywhere. He had even burst into the house of Principal Gu just to bring her justice, but he was too insignificant to make any difference. He was forced out of the house by Principal Gu and thus became the laughingstock of his batch. She did not have to ask about his situation.
He was known to have possessed all the qualities that a bad student could possibly have - fussy, wayward, mischievous and refusing to learn. Why did a good student become like this?
Gu Xijiu was an assassin. Thus, she was good with psychological tactics. She slowly approached the subject without going straight to the point and had a heart-to-heart talk with him. Finally, Qian Lingyu let down his guard and told her everything.
There was something unusual about him. He was once the best among all the recruits and entered the Ziyun class. He was known as a promising student, and Principal Gu seemed to think highly of him.
Qian Lingyu was one of the members of the Qian family. Qian Fengtian was his relative by blood, specifically his distant cousin.
