Chapter 18: The Stern Crown Prince (2)
Gu Ruoyun smiled wryly: “How can I not understand your reasoning? It was exactly because I wasn’t strong enough, that caused my mother, grandfather and brother to die so horribly, that caused the people by my side to leave me, one by one! Since the heavens let me live on, then I must become the ruler of this world! Dominating everyone’s right to live or die!”
At this moment, the girl’s voice was full of a dominating aura, lighting up that usually inconspicuous face with radiance.
Zixie smiled and patted Gu Ruoyun’s small head, then said: “Girl, you need to take the Qi Gathering Pill now, wait until you break through into level 3 before you leave.”
A light passed through Gu Ruoyun’s eyes, she had a sort of premonition, that she would be able to break through into level 3 after taking this pill…
A sleepless night.
When Gu Ruoyun appeared in front of the eyes of everyone in the Gu household, they had already reached the final time limit, the people in the Gu household that had previously wished for her to stay as far away from them as possible, had never looked forward to her return this much before.
Old General Gu could not be bothered to say anything more to her, sweeping her with a neutral gaze, he ordered: “The expert from Weapon Refining Sect is already inside the palace. The emperor has ordered everyone to attend the crown prince’s birthday, there’s no time for you to clean up, just follow us right now.”
Actually, Gu Ruoyun had some insight into this matter, however, because she wanted to know the level of one of the experts of this mainland, she did not defy the general’s order…
Within a room carrying a faint fragrance, a man stood with his hands held behind his back; he cast a long shadow under the weak sunlight.
Elder Yu stood behind his family’s young master, after hesitating for a long while, he said: “Young master, recently, two of Weapon Refining Sect’s elders came to Azure Dragon Country, and I’m not sure what they have come for. Even if Azure Dragon Country’s crown price is Elder Hun Fei’s disciple, with his arrogant personality, he would definitely never attend a meet without a motive. This time, even Elder Lian Tianlin and the sect leader’s daughter have followed, I feel like something is going to happen.”
The man curved up the corners of his lips: “No matter their purpose, it has nothing to do with our Dongfang family, but… I recall that Elder Hun Fei had an eye for Gu Shengxiao’s talent, but was rejected by Shengxiao, and only accepted the crown prince as a disciple after that.”
“Young master, you mean, he’ll cause trouble for Miss Ruoyun.”
“No,” the man shook his head, “Weapon Refining Sect has some prestige in this mainland after all, they won’t do such things. Right, Elder Yu, I will make a trip back to the Dongfang family soon, you will stay here to help Gu Ruoyun.”
Elder Yu startled for a moment, his wrinkled face stunned.
“Young master, this…”
“Elder Yu, you know that I established Hundred Herb Hall to secure a source of funding for myself at the start, but if Hundred Herb Hall is able to support Gu Ruoyun, then what’s the harm in giving it to her? No matter what, she’s my older sister’s daughter. Letting you stay here, is for the sake of allowing you to see her abilities clearly, if she has no real strength, then you may return to the Dongfang family without saying anything else to her. Rather than involving her in our internal feuding, why not let her live a free and unfettered life outside?”
The man’s tone held some helplessness.
Elder Yu lowered his head, and respectfully said: “Yes, young master, this old servant will do as the young master commands.”
Within the Imperial Gardens, Luo Yin spotted Gu Ruoyun, who had followed the Gu family in, with a single glance. Overjoyed, she flew towards Gu Ruoyun without caring about the glare from General Luo at her side.
