you always feel the need to swoop in and answer for him in such a domineering manner without ever asking what he wants?” Gu Yunxi glared at Gu Feng frostily, trying to drive a wedge between them with her words.

“Shijie, I thank you for your kindness all these years.
Here’s a bottle of top ranked nascent soul pills to repay the favor.” Su Mujin took out a bottle of pills and tossed it to her, paused, then continued, “Gege’s opinions are my opinions.
Shijie need not bother to find me in the future; asking Gege will do.”

Gu Yunxi’s retort was nullified by Su Mujin.
Her face turned pale and distorted for a moment, then she hurriedly left. 

“You .
.
.” Both men spoke at the same time.

“You go first.” Again, they spoke simultaneously, causing them both to laugh.

“Then I’ll speak first.
What you said just now I won’t forget.
Even if you later decide to look for a Dao companion .
.
.
you have to ask for my blessings.” Gu Feng spoke with a faint smile.

“Who else could I turn to for such a matter as a Dao companion, except for Gege?” Because the one I like is you. 


The corners of Gu Feng’s mouth turned up.
The sapling in his heart seemed to grow a bit taller.
Perhaps it wasn’t far from being full grown already.

After another half month or so, the defenses of the second hall were finally broken by the same group as before and the yao guardians once again had the misfortune of dying at their post.
As this hall was the ‘Library Pavilion’, Gu Feng thought the Tianji disc was probably not hidden within, so there was no need to split up and search separately from Su Mujin.

The Library Pavilion’s collection was exactly as one would expect.
It contained some rare books for cultivation techniques, and so on.
Gu Feng already had a celestial level technique, and didn’t need anything else.
As for Su Mujin, Gu Feng recalled that as soon as he broke through to nascent soul, the cultivation technique ‘Nirvana’, inherited from the Phoenix Clan, would automatically appear within his mind.
So neither of them needed any of the cultivation manuals.

With this thought, Gu Feng wasn’t invested in exploring, but then decided to pick up some manuals, so he could hand them over to the sect for merits.
The library was immense, and after two days of exploring, the two of them failed to come across any trace of the Tianji disc. 

The third hall was the ‘Palace of Oration’.
The barrier to this hall was much more complicated than the previous two halls, and took a full month to break through.

Hey, why is the hall’s yao guardian still sitting in place? Gu Feng was inwardly immersed in astonished confusion when he realized that he himself was unable to move, and furthermore, everyone around was frozen in place.
What had happened?

To his amazement, he saw a lone figure lazily strolling through the hall, turning to look at the cultivators as they stood motionless.
Naturally, that person was a gorgeous woman, with long silvery white hair, eyes like shining gems, lips red as cherries, and skin as white as snow.
Their every move was alarmingly seductive, and many of the male cultivators reacted, their faces blushing bright red.

In contrast, Gu Feng stood there calm and collected.
He had to withstand the temptation of Su Mujin’s good looks daily, so he had developed a sort of immunity to beauty.
But despite that, Gu Feng couldn’t help but admit that this person’s appearance was equal to that of Su Mujin.
However this person’s ability to suppress everyone was terrifying.
Their cultivation was likely on par with the sect leader’s, which was enough of a development to shock anyone. 

“Ugh! Today’s male cultivators are too weak.
If their hearts are so easily swayed, how can they hope to cultivate the path of immortality?” The beauty’s eyes were filled with derision, then the sound of their magnetic voice revealed a deep, masculine tone.

A man’s voice? The cultivators were astounded.
Such a peerless beauty was a man? The male cultivators were distraught, the Heavens were cruel.
The female cultivators were envious and jealous.
Why couldn’t they have been endowed with such divine looks?

 

That man brandished his hand, and numerous rays of white light poured forth, rushing about before finally alighting upon the few men with irreproachable conduct.
Gu Feng and Su Mujin were included within that number.
Both of them pinched a ray to take a look and saw it was .
.
.
a bit of animal fur?

Gu Feng, “.
.
.” 

Su Mujin, “.
.
.”


They were in agreement upon this expert’s ‘unique’ demeanor.

“Now, all those who were selected by the rays of white light can come with me to undergo the trial of the Celestial Sovereign.” The man spoke with an aloof expression, his entire disposition instantly undergoing an about turn.
If he had been a seductive siren previously, now he was as chilly as an immortal in exile.

“What? What were the selection criteria? 

“Weren’t they randomly selected?”

“That’s right, this method is unfair!”

Many male cultivators began to raise a fuss, and among them was Chu Feng.
To be honest, he was the only one of his aptitude that wasn’t selected, but who made him be so partial to a beautiful face? Meanwhile each of the female cultivators had been selected.

“Why? You ask me why? Just think of how you behaved when I appeared a few moments ago!” The man coldly snorted. 

In response to those words, many of the male cultivators looked ashamed.
Only Chu Feng recklessly insisted, “What your gorgeous self said is naturally correct, but isn’t this test only unfair to the male cultivators? Afterall, to start with everyone thought that you were .
.
.
a peerless beauty.” After finishing his words, he still eyed the man up and down a few times with a heated gaze.

Gu Feng resolutely tried not to smile though the corners of his mouth twitched.
Such lewd behavior would lead to a tragic end.
One day that dude would get his comeuppance.

The person who Chu Feng was undressing with his eyes felt completely exposed, but couldn’t deny the rationale of the other’s words.
His expression abruptly turned gloomy as he icily asked, “Then what, pray tell, do you think should be done?”

“I can test the women’s resolve myself, to assure they’re qualified.
I am willing to take on such a task so that those beauties can show their ability.” Chu Feng’s face was as thick as a city wall, to say such words without a trace of shame. 

The man bowed his head in contemplation for a bit, then nodded and said, “Your words are reasonable, but I think your charm falls short.
In my opinion, he is the best choice.”

Keenly watching the farce from the sidelines, Gu Feng’s expression suddenly grew dark.
If he wasn’t mistaken, the person the man had pointed to was himself.
Why was his life so difficult? Why did he keep getting pushed into the fire?
