Slowly, those fear-filled eyes lost their spirit and turned blank, so blank that he looked like a piece of wood.
“What’s your name?”
It was as if Gu Ruoyun’s voice held some magic power that made the assassin obedient: “Reporting to Master, this subordinate is named Li Cheng.”
“Li Cheng, is it? You can return now. Observe Second Master Gu. If there’s any movement at all, inform me at once through soul telepathy.”
Since Li Cheng was being controlled by Baobao, who was Gu Ruoyun’s contract beast, they could communicate via soul telepathy. Of course, with Baobao’s current power, they could only control souls of those who had martial king strength and below.
“Shifu, Baobao had that kind of ability?” Wei Yiyi’s beautiful eyes widened in surprise. A little puzzled, she asked, “Since it has that kind of ability, why don’t you directly control Second Master Gu and ask him what we want to know?”
Gu Ruoyun shook her head: “If it were really that easy, I would have done it earlier. Second Master Gu has some mysterious power backing him. If I were to control his soul, that person is sure to detect it. It’s not safe to do so. Right now, I just want to find out where that power comes from and what kind of grudge they had with my parents!”
“Shifu, shouldn’t we thank Gu Xianglin for sending such a convenient pawn to you?” Wei Yiyi blinked, then grinned as she spoke. It was obvious that she was still in high spirits from seeing the Gu family’s humiliation today.
Gu Ruoyun smiled slightly: “That’s right, just now…”
She was about to turn towards that grim masked man, when she found that the space behind her was totally empty. He had disappeared.
“Shifu,” Wei Yiyi asked hesitantly, “Where did that man come from?”
“I’m not sure.”
Gu Ruoyun shook her head: “However, he didn’t have any evil intentions towards us.”
Not only that, when that man had held her in his embrace, Gu Ruoyun had for some reason unconsciously felt a sense of safety and relief…
“Forget it,” Gu Ruoyun stopped looking around, “Wei Yiyi, let’s go.”
Before she left, she seemed to have detected something as she cast a final glance at the old tree that man had been hiding behind before…
It wasn’t until the two figures had disappeared that a man dressed in black slowly stepped out from behind the old tree. The man’s thin lips were pursed slightly, while those black pupils were still fixed on the girl’s disappearing back, filling with endless warmth and affection.
“I’m sorry, Yun’er. I can’t acknowledge you right now, I hope you’ll forgive me…”
Three years ago, that auction had shocked countless people. Thus, upon hearing that Hundred Herb Hall was going to sell Beauty Rejuvenation Pills in their store, the entire Azure Dragon Country was in an uproar. All the imperial officials and nobles started to prepare their fortunes for the sake of buying a Beauty Rejuvenation Pill from Hundred Herb Hall.
Even if they didn’t need the pill themselves, based on the fact that it was pills alone meant that many people would fight with all their might to get one.
However, when the crowd had reached Hundred Herb Hall, it was strangely quiet. Perhaps they were worried that they would be chased out of Hundred Herb Hall if they were too noisy.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I see that almost everyone is present,” Shopkeeper Zhao coughed drily as he spoke with upturned eyes, “Because we don’t have enough pills, only twenty people will be able to get a pill. Since there are already twenty people present, there won’t be any more pills available for late arrivals. However, today, we’re not only selling Beauty Rejuvenation Pills. We’ll also be selling Longevity Pills.”
Hearing Shopkeeper Zhao’s words, everyone’s hearts unconsciously skipped a beat.
TL Note: Um, Mr. Masked Man, was it really so smart to hide behind the exact same tree…? ovo;;
