There came a tearing sound .
And Emperor Wu removed the sticker on the paper .
“Wait, that’s a girl’s name . ” Emperor Wu found the name a little strange and he gave it a closer look . “Feng Wu? She has the same name as that Feng Wu from back then . Are all girls named Feng Wu this smart?”
Grand Secretary Fang stared at Emperor Wu without blinking .
Emperor Wu turned to Grand Secretary Fang in bewilderment and met the latter’s eyes .
All of a sudden, an idea struck him!
“Feng Wu!” Emperor Wu stared at Grand Secretary Fang in disbelief . “Feng Wu? Don’t tell me that it’s THE Feng Wu?!”
Of course Emperor Wu was agitated!
He was the one who broke off the marital engagement back then!
Emperor Wu thought that Feng Wu was no longer engaged to his son, but in fact, Jun Linyuan hadn’t given his consent to the cancellation at the last minute .
Grand Secretary Fang gave him a solemn nod .
“It’s really her?!” Emperor Wu looked like he had been struck by lightning and was dazed on the spot . “This is her paper?”
Grand Secretary Fang nodded again .
Emperor Wu stumbled back and became lost in thought .
It had been years since he heard Feng Wu’s name .
“It’s her… her… no wonder…” Emperor Wu darted a look at Grand Secretary Fang, then said, “Even back then, she was an amazing, talented girl . No one was nearly as brilliant as she was . Unfortunately, she got greedy and pushed herself over the limit, which messed up her cultivation and she lost all her abilities . She was crippled after that . ”
Too greedy? Pushed herself over the limit? Grand Secretary Fang shook his head .
He had been indifferent to such rumors before meeting Feng Wu . However, once he knew Feng Wu well enough… Grand Secretary Fang shook his head with a wry smile . That girl was too smart and meticulous to bring that on herself!
There had to be something else behind it!
“Fang, has that girl regained her abilities?” Emperor Wu asked .
That question put Grand Secretary Fang in a difficult position .
He knew for a fact that Feng Wu could cultivate now and she was leveling up at a frantic pace . However —
Grand Secretary Fang recalled what Feng Wu had told him .
The enemy was still lurking in the dark, trying to kill her .
Since Grand Secretary Fang didn’t produce an immediate answer, Emperor Wu took it as silent confirmation of his speculation . He sighed . “What a pity… We lost such a genius just like that . ”
Grand Secretary Fang gestured at the paper . “Her talent isn’t lost . ”
Emperor Wu agreed . “You’re right . Her understanding and innovation of the stances alone is proof enough of her prominence! We haven’t lost her talent!”
Emperor Wu was secretly overwhelmed by his guilty conscience .
The cancellation of the engagement was carried out in such haste that he wasn’t able to help her…
Emperor Wu’s eyes flickered as he looked down at the paper .
Grand Secretary Fang thought to himself, “Xiao Wu has changed Emperor Wu’s opinion of her through her answers alone . His Majesty will be thrilled if he knows that she can cultivate again . ”
However, Grand Secretary Fang had promised Feng Wu that he wouldn’t tell anyone else and he had to keep the secret for now .
