"My Lord, in my opinion, perhaps Tianju Hall is the place where you put your tiger cubs, but the enemy may not think the same. Maybe he does not even care about those cubs. Rather, he is actually targeting the tigers guard" Mu Lei finally gathered enough courage to say it.
"If you cannot even protect yourself against a wolf, what makes you think you are qualified to be guarding my tiger cubs?" The Lords voice was soft.
It was true. Mu Lei agreed in silence. He was stuck for a while. Seeing that The Lord was already walking towards Hotspring Lake, he asked again, "My Lord, who is the cub this time?"
"Think about it yourself!" The Lord replied him swiftly and left.
Mu Lei stood there for a while but still could not get a hold of the meaning, so he contacted Mu Feng who was working outside and told him what The Lord had previously described to him. "Mu Feng, you have always been smart, and you can always grasp what others are thinking. Who do you think is the cub that The Lord has described?"
Mu Feng assumed, "Is it Yun Qingluo? She is after all the newest member of the heavens gift disciples. The Lord has always been very caring towards them." Although his care was more like a burden to them, it was his way of showing that he cared.
Mu Lei was speechless. What about Miss Gu?
"Xijiu, how confident are you regarding the battle?" Qian Lingyu asked Gu Xijiu when the three of them finally got together early in the morning.
Gu Xijiu answered nonchalantly, "10 out of 10!"
Qian Lingyu looked at her with his eyes wide open. He coughed, "Xijiu, I know our strength, but the other team is crazily strong. The three of them has always been invincible in the Ziyun class. I heard that they had defeated most teams in Ziyun class before"
Lan Waihu did not know what to expect and told them about her concerns as well, "Yun Qingluo is a heavens gift disciple, and her Kung Fu has attained the acme of perfection. The twins, Le Qingxing and Le Zixing, are even stronger. They are inseparable even when they talk. They do not even need to communicate when they fight, as long as they take a look at one another, they will know the other's next moves! The siblings used to look down on everyone. They would not team up with anyone and would rather fight other teams of three without any backup. Even then, they still had more victories than losses. When Yun Qingluo came, it was as if they finally found their soulmate and decided to form a team with her. They have been together for a few months now, and their progress has been good."
Gu Xijiu took a sip of her water. She knew that it was difficult to win, especially since she neither had golden fingers nor external power. All she had was just the manipulation of her techniques.
She was an assassin, as well as the strategist of the team. She understood the importance to fight in synchronization. As long as they were able to work in coordination, they could face any fight easily.
Fortunately, Gu Xijiu was an expert in coordinating. Her team had more victories than losses. Even if they lost a fight, they would always win in the coming fight, as she already knew their weaknesses.
The most unfavorable factor to her was that their tactics were already well known to their opponent. Yet she barely knew anything about them.
She had seen the twins before. Other than their identical appearances, they also moved in unison.
