In the center of the banquet hall stood a circular dance floor spanning fifty meters wide. Members of the Star Luo delegation climbed up it and declared the start of the party.
The moment music started playing, a couple entered the hall and a spotlight descended upon them. It drew everyone’s eyes.
A fairy in silver and white, so beautiful one would fear that with a blink and she would disappear, merely a figment of a dream. This was the girl who had just walked into the hall with her partner. Her black hair gently brushed past her shoulders. She carried herself in a delicate manner, and although not particularly pretty, she had a noble and graceful air.
The music stilled. Upon closer inspection, her hands were wrapped in a pair of silver evening gloves, subtle patterns running along their length. Her dress stopped short of her knees and revealed a pair of slender, fair legs, seemingly cut from marble. Her high heels, also silver, sparkled like crystal, and as she walked forward the tapping filled the hall, counting down to a splendid occasion.
Escorting her was a handsome young man. He stood tall and straight, his figure slender yet muscular, with perfectly broad shoulders. His jet black hair was combed back and fell in supple waves. A pearl-white shirt stood out against the black of his trousers, and a black bow tie complemented his purple tuxedo. He cut a dashing figure, despite the hint of immaturity left on his face. If the girl next to him was the full moon over the starry sea, then he was the radiant golden sun.
Murmurs broke out among the bystanders, praising the beautiful couple. The spotlights were manually controlled and had coincidentally landed on the two, but it was so fitting that the operators couldn’t bear to readjust them. In that moment, they were the prince and princess of the banquet.
The couple was precisely Tang Wulin and Gu Yue.
Standing atop the platform at the back of the hall, Sima Lanxiao had a clear view of the two as they had walked in. He was certain that they were both from Douluo since he was familiar with the faces of the Star Luo delegation. It was essential for a diplomat to have a good memory.
“It looks like we have another strong candidate for our prizes tonight. Welcome to the banquet! May I ask which part of Douluo you are from?”
Tang Wulin found his outfit uncomfortably tight and restrictive. In his everyday life, he wore whatever was comfortable to blacksmith and cultivate. Yet despite how restrictive he found the tuxedo, he could feel himself standing taller in it.
Gu Yue had locked arms with him as if only natural when they entered the hall. As the spotlight had landed on them, Tang Wulin was taken by surprise. But not a stranger to surprises, he quickly recovered and answered Sima Lanxiao. “We’re from Shrek Academy.” His voice was calm and pleasant, loud enough that everyone in the hall could hear it.
The spotlight finally left Tan
