As usual, Gu Xijiu came here and sat down for a while to enjoy the breeze. She was also there to make up her mind and to make some plans for the future.
This time was no different. Her sorrow did not last for long, as the breeze was comforting enough to make her feel better.
She started to think about the competition that was going to happen three days later and proceeded to make a plan.
Gu Canmo told her that if her team won another fight, the three of them would be able to make it into the Ziyun class.
The first class was the priority class. If they made it in, they could get better resources to improve their abilities. Most importantly, the other two in her team were very desperate to get into the class.
Unfortunately, the team leader of the team they were going to face was Yun Qingluo. The other two teammates in her team were also the best of the best. Both of them had their spiritual power at level six and a half. They were not easy to be dealt with.
More importantly, the three of them did not always involve themselves in the battles. Gu Xijiu had never seen their tactics before, but they had observed her team countless of times already.
To know one's strength and that of their opponents was the way to victory. The opponent clearly knew them well, but she barely knew anything about them. This was not going to be an easy fight.
"Gu Xijiu" There was a sudden call from the back.
Gu Xijiu was too absorbed in her own thoughts so she immediately freaked out when she heard a voice. Intuitively, she turned her head around and saw Yan Chen standing not too far away from her. He looked anxious, and it was rare to see him being so uneasy. Gu Xijiu was taken by surprise and raised her brow at him asking, "Where did you come from?"
Yan Chen fixed his gaze on her and said, "Come here." He walked towards her as he talked.
Gu Xijiu hesitated for a while, but she finally understood what he was anxious about. She could not help but laugh, "Do you really think that I am going to jump off the cliff? With my Kung Fu, I cannot possibly fall to my death at this height."
The cliffs were about two hundred meters tall. If she leaped straight off the cliffs, she would definitely die. However, her Qing Gong was extraordinary. If she really slipped and fell, she could step on the trees that were growing along the walls of the cliffs and fly back up.
Yan Chen examined her for a while. He seemed to realize the indifference in her expression and finally caught a breath. He walked towards her and sat down by her side. He said as he looked down, "This cliff is not the deepest cliff, but do you know what is down there? There is a hot spring. It is sizzling hot and can cook you thoroughly."
Gu Xijiu did not answer.
She coughed, "I think that I will not fall to its depth with my skills."
She knew about the hot spring that was capable of killing people as she had researched about it before.
Yan Chen realized that he had made a mistake. He got a little upset and tried to change the topic, "What are you doing here in the middle of the night? Little Fox was crying hysterically for not being able to locate you. She could not stop knocking my door."
Gu Xijiu was a little astounded and asked, "Did she alarm anyone while knocking your door?"
Would there be another rumor tomorrow saying that Gu Xijiu was about to commit suicide for taking things too hard?
Yan Chen knew exactly what she was worried about and shook his head, "No, she will always come to me when she has no idea what to do or when she is scared. Only if I have no idea too will she look for someone else. I guess a person who is as thick-skinned as you will not be suicidal, so I told her that you must be studying your strategy at somewhere quiet and I promised her that I would go and look for you immediately. She was finally relieved."
"You are the one who is thick-skinned!" Said Gu Xijiu.
