If I were Xingyin, I would have been team demon realm a long time ago.
Minister Wu just seems to hate anyone he sees as beneath him. And I think that motivation drives a lot of court politics. It’s possible he’s heard some gossip about Liwei and Xingyin, too. He seems the type who would have informants that would pass him that kind of information. They weren’t that careful.
Xingyin has gone from innocent maiden to full on warrior. She has had to do that to survive. Somehow, though, she’s kept her values outside of that.
As for the bow, I wonder if her lineage runs as far back as the original owner of the bow. I started to get the feeling while reading this that it’s not just her mother who has kept her in the dark about her magical abilities.
And Wenzhi! Damn him! I had really liked him and was glad she was with him. I don’t know what it means that his eyes turned gray when he grabbed her up, but I’m worried it means he’s from the demon realm. If so, this has been an incredible long con he’s been running on the court. But, how could he have known that she would come along, be so amazingly talented, get the prize from the emperor, demand her mother’s release, talk the dragons out of their pearls? I just don’t see how that could have been his plan. He’d been in the court for a long time before she came. I’m really anxious to see how this turns out.
