The banquet had already begun when Tang Wulin and Wu Zhangkong entered. In the center of the hall, the emperor and empress stood in magnificent attire as they chatted with the high-level members of the diplomatic delegation. The mood throughout the hall was joyous, nobles of Star Luo and influential people of Douluo happily mingling.
Music entering the background, Dai Tianling approached a woman in her thirties of Douluo. Invited her to dance. A single glance at that woman would take one’s breath away. She accepted his offer with an enchanting smile, and the two stepped onto the dance floor for the first dance of the evening.
As Tang Wulin watched the dance, his mind wandered off elsewhere. Memories of Gu Yue’s passionate dancing flickered before his eyes.Where’s Gu Yue and the others?He scanned the crowd. He soon spotted the others from Shrek Academy chatting with some young nobles of Star Luo. Xu Xiaoyan, Ye Xinglan, and Gu Yue were quite popular.
