The atmosphere was slightly awkward. People all looked at Gu Dongliu.
There were few people who dared to ask the king of Qin to hand over somebody like Gu Dongliu did. Two battles made the Cottage as well as its spirit known to all. Everyone knew how arrogant those people from the Cottage were. They witnessed it again at this moment. But this time, Gu Dongliu was confronted with the Qin Dynasty and the Donghua Clan.
"Today, everybody here is my guest." The king looked at Gu Dongliu. He didn't respond directly but replaced his gentle smile with a serious look.
Since Gu Dongliu was so bold, the king was not going to play kind. What the king just said was already a response. His attitude was very clear.
Since everybody here was the king's guest, Gu Dongliu was not allowed to take anybody away.
Gu Dongliu bowed to the king. Though he was proud, he behaved in a very proper manner.
"It seems that even guests have differences," Gu Dongliu said calmly. People soon knew what he meant. People from the Cottage were also guests here but were mistreated by the nobles of the Qin Dynasty.
During the guqin concert, people of the Donghua Clan bullied people from the Cottage and nobody stopped them. But at this moment, Gu Dongliu was stopped. Apparently, there were differences between guests.
The king frowned. Gu Dongliu continued saying, "Since it is so, I won't disturb the ceremony anymore. Goodbye" Gu Dongliu turned around, looked at the stand and called, "Junior, let's go."
"Okay." Ye Futian stood up and walked to Gu Dongliu. Together they stepped away. The two's backs looked lonely but proud. Gu Dongliu was arrogant but acted appropriately. No matter how tough he was, he couldn't disrespect the king. However, would the Cottage call it an end?
The king's grandson, Qin Li, sneered. The Qin Dynasty was not the top power of Eastern Barren Territory but was even stronger than the Fuyun Sword Clan.
If the Cottage could take anything they wanted, it would be a joke.
People from the Donghua Clan looked indifferent but were actually very indignant. Gu Dongliu was so outstanding. Compared with him, the Donghua Clan seemed too ordinary. They couldn't bear this.
He Jiang stared at Gu Dongliu's back coldly. He was the one who had hurt Yu Sheng badly. He was the one that Gu Dongliu was looking for.
Gu Dongliu was wild. How did he dare to take someone at the ceremony right before the king? Of course he would fail.
"The ceremony is over. We shall leave as well," Situ Wu from the College stood up and said to the king at this moment. Then the people of the College departed.
The king wanted to suppress the Cottage but actually, the College was also his goal. Situ Wu knew that no matter what, the Cottage belonged to the College though sometimes the Cottage was so famous that it seemed an independent clan. Since Gu Dongliu left, the College would naturally leave as well.
"We shall also leave," people from the Sword Saint Mountain also said, bowing.
The Sword Saint was a god for the people of the Sword Saint Mountain. He established this clan and turned it into a top power. It wasn't easy but he succeeded. He was also the first disciple of the Cottage. Therefore, the Cottage was also a sacred place for them. Their god came from the Cottage and became known to all.
People from the Sword Saint Mountain knew few disciples from the Cottage, but they knew Gu Dongliu very well. Gu Dongliu had been to the Sword Saint Mountain a few times and had good talks with the Sword Saint. The two were very close.
Gu Dongliu made his stance clear. The Sword Saint Mountain would naturally support him.
The king frowned. Just then, the people from the Liu Kingdom also rose to depart and the king's eyes turned cold.
The Liu Kingdom was also on his side?
As the three top powers all left, the atmosphere became a little weird.
But the king recovered quickly and commented, "Young people are really proud. I could see that from the Cottage's disciples. Qin Yu is the next king of the Qin Dynasty. Young people are the leaders of the future."
People smiled and nodded. They had their own thoughts but no one else left. It was unnecessary to offend the king on this occasion.
After a while, someone came and bowed, "Your Majesty."
"What's the matter?" The king glanced at the comer.
"Gu Dongliu didn't leave," the man reported while bowing.
The king's expression changed and the others were confused. "Where is he?" he asked.
"He is standing outside the palace, looking in this direction."
The king's grandson, Qin Li's smile disappeared. He looked uncomfortable. Qin Yu frowned and looked outside with sharp eyes. Was Gu Donliu challenging the Qin Dynasty?
Everyone's eyes flashed. This was what the Cottage's disciples should be likeresorting to force after peaceful means. He had tried peaceful means and made his stance clear that he was not going to disturb the ceremony so he waited outside of the Qin Palace. He wasn't breaking any rule.
At this time, a black dragon flew outside the palace with two people on its back. They were Ye Futian and Xue Ye.
There were two disciples from the CottageGu Dongliu and Xue Ye. Luo Fan didn't come this time. Because Yu Sheng was badly wounded, he needed to cook for Yu Sheng and help him recover. Before the black dragon was a figure in white standing in the air. It was Gu Dongliu.
Outside the palace, people downstairs were looking up to Gu Dongliu with a strange look.
Not long ago when Gu Dongliu stepped into the palace, people thought he was invited here to the ceremony. But soon he left and took a person with. This person was very handsome and young. He seemed to be just 18-years-old. People seemed to have guessed who he was. He was Ye Futian, who became famous in the Barren Ancient World and then was enrolled into the Cottage.
Recently, he was in the spotlight. Everyone was talking about him, especially after Qin Li made that comment about him. But they didn't know what had happened in the palace last night. Only those top powers knew. Even so, they still guessed something from the present scene.
Instead of attending this ceremony, the Cottage's people were coming here for other reasons. Following behind the Cottage, the College, Sword Saint Mountain, and Liu Kingdom all walked out.
The disciples of the Sword Saint Mountain bowed to Gu Dongliu and said, "We have informed the Mountain but before getting the response, we can do nothing right now."
"I understand. Just watch," Gu Dongliu said.
The people of Sword Saint Mountain nodded and stood to the side. The College and Liu Kingdom also stood to the side. The Liu Kingdom's prince and princess were close to Ye Futian but they couldn't intervene either. Their departure was already enough to make their attitude clear.
After another while, a line of strong cultivators came out from the Qin Palace led by, not the king, but Qin Yu.
Qin Yu was now the Qin Dynasty's crown prince and was equal to Gu Dongliu. He was the most appropriate one to deal with this. It would be better for the king to stay in the palace.
People of the Donghua Clan and other clans stood behind Qin Yu, looking at the figure in white. They seemed to see the Sword Saint standing above the Fuyun Sword Clan so many years ago.
"Gu Dongliu, what are you doing?" Qin Yu asked coldly, raising his head and looking at the other.
Gu Dongliu arched an eyebrow and asked, "What do you mean?"
The two pairs of eyes were both sharp as if they were colliding with each other.
"The king is inside, so I walked out. Now, why are you here? Or is it because the Qin Dynasty has indeed something to do with this issue?" Gu Dongliu questioned coldly.
This question was hard to answer.
Qin Yu couldn't say that the Qin Dynasty was involved in this and admit that two top powers joined hands to fight against a young disciple from the Cottage, could he?
It was worth mentioning that the Cottage was also the king's guest. If he did admit it, it would affect the Qin Dynasty's image. However, if he said they didn't take part in this thing, he was turning back to the Donghua Clan.
"We are outside of the palace," Qin Yu responded without answering his question.
"It's funny. Our Cottage's disciple was bullied by the Donghua Clan's noble but nobody stood out to stop it. My fifth brother told me that your people even stopped him from fighting back." Gu Dongliu's tone grew sharper.
He continued his accusation, "Now, I am just waiting outside the palace and you are going to protect the Donghua Clan? Your Highness, please explain."
Hearing Gu Dongliu's words, people outside were shocked. Had this really happened inside the palace? Did the Donghua Clan's noble attack the Cottage's disciple?
Gu Dongliu from the Cottage was coming to fight back but the Qin Dynasty intended to protect the Donghua Clan.
All forces looked at Gu Dongliu. They found that this disciple of the Cottage was not only gifted but also eloquent. There was no fault in Gu Dongliu's words. This was indeed the Qin Dynasty's wrong.
The Qin Dynasty didn't stop the Donghua Clan from attacking the Cottage's disciple. And this time, the Cottage's people were waiting outside to fight back; there was no excuse for the Qin Dynasty to get involved.
Gu Dongliu looked at Qin Yu coldly and continued, "If Your Highness insists to help the Donghua Clan and refuses to explain, then could I understand that as you helping the Donghua Clan to bully my Cottage's disciple?
