"Get to the main point!" Gu Xijiu interrupted, "Stop chasing a red herring, you just need to answer my two questions."

Gu Xixi was blushed slightly, "In the recent years, my master has healed a total of approximately one hundred and thirty people and they were of course, coming from high social ranks…"

"About one hundred and thirty? What’s the exact number?"

"One hundred and thirty eight!" Gu Xixi secretly gritted her teeth and blurted out a number.

"Are you sure?"

Gu Xixi was feeling guilty but she did not show it. Instead, she said proudly, "Sure!"

"Incorrect! The Tianwen Overlord has been a doctor for 88 years. He has healed a total of 248 patients regardless of their identities. For example, the local overlord and normal citizens. Though the Tianwen Overlord does not attend to a patient easily, he attends to them regardless of their identities, but by fate. Once he is interested, he does not care even if the patient is a beggar. In these few years, he has healed six florists, 18 boatmen, two beggars, and 64 small tradesmen and porters…"

Gu Xijiu paused for a moment before she continued, "121 killers, ten Overlords and elders from various clans, 27 government officials, princes and relatives…" Gu Xijiu reported the numbers with a clear voice.

The people were stunned, but were uncertain if what she said was accurate.

Gu Xixi retorted, "Nonsense! How would you, a person who never goes out, knows about my master? These are all nonsense!"

Gu Xijiu ignored her and stated, "I think the Shumishi, Sir Pei can prove my earlier statement."

Therefore, everyone shifted their focus towards the Shumishi, who managed all the information of the world.

The emperor inquired without further ado, "Minister Pei Ai, is her statement correct?"

The Shumishi was shocked as he was one of the supporters of the fourth prince, Rong Chu and thus he did not want the fourth prince to be on the losing end…

Just as he wanted to speak, Tian Jiyue who was sitting on the seat of honor dictated, "Everyone must tell the truth, if I find out that anyone had lied, I will kill him with my own hands!"

A cold sweat broke out over minister Pei’s forehead, and with determination, he replied, "According to the information I have, what Ms. Gu had said is correct…"

The people hissed like pouring a cup of water in a cauldron with boiling oil before they shifted their focus to Gu Xixi.

Gu Xixi was blushing and looked at Gu Xijiu unbelievably, "You…How did you know this so well?!"

Gu Xijiu tapped on the table, "I admire the Tianwen Overlord; he’s my idol...I’m his worshipper. Needless to say, I’ll ask all I can about him. On the contrary, Ms. Gu, aren’t you the favorite disciple of the Tianwen Overlord? How can you not to know all about your master? Therefore, why shouldn't I doubt her identity as the Tianwen Saint?"

The Firmament Stone cannot help but convey the message to her mind, "Hey, it was me who told you all this information alright? Prior to this, you didn’t know who he was at all."

Gu Xijiu was ignoring it. She was just turning and rubbing that bracelet on her wrist with her finger to soothe it.

Gu Xixi took a deep breath secretly, "My master acts mysteriously and with a low-profile. Besides, he doesn’t share what he's doing to his disciples. Therefore, I…it shouldn’t be strange even if I don’t know much about these things, right?"

Gu Xijiu sneered, "If you are heartless and don’t want to know more about your master, it’s definitely not a strange thing not knowing how many patients have your master has healed. However, isn’t it very odd that you don’t even know the behavior of your master when he attends to a patient?!"
