Yunyao was inwardly shocked. From what she could see, this human girl seemed very ordinary. What made that god of pests take a fancy to her? If she made a contract with this human, would she get enough power to make the Ancient Phoenix bow to her?
“Zixie, I won’t disturb your closed cultivation then. As for Yunyao, stay in the Ancient Divine Pagoda and recover from your injuries for now. When I need you, I’ll bring you out.”
Gu Ruoyun yawned. She hadn’t seen Xiao Ye for a whole day; he was probably pitifully drawing circles in a corner somewhere.
In the imperial palace, a poised, elegant lady sat on a chaise. She casually played with her nails as she said, “How are the preparations going?”
An imperial guard respectfully replied: “ Reporting to Imperial Concubine, we’ve already prepared the items you wanted. We’ve sent them to the elder of Dark Yin Palace and they’ve already accepted our mission.”
“Good, very good!” Imperial Concubine Ling sneered and stood up. A glint of malice flashed across her beautiful eyes. “It’s been three years. Gu Ruoyun, it’s been three years since you killed my Ling family. For these three years, I’ve spent every moment thinking about this grudge! However, I didn’t have the power to deal with you back then! It took me three years of searching to find a technique valuable enough for the elder of Dark Yin Palace to agree to my request! This time, even if you have the protection of Hundred Herb Hall, your death is guaranteed!”
Heaven knew how she had muddled through these past three years. Even His Majesty himself had refused to help her take her revenge! Thus, she could only depend on herself! Otherwise, she wouldn’t have had to waste three years’ time searching for something that the elder of Dark Yin Palace valued.
She would let that woman know that there were consequences to killing a member of the Ling family! Anyone who killed her family would have to go to the underworld and answer for their crimes!
It was night. Moonbeams filtered in through the window, falling upon Gu Ruoyun’s fair visage.
Gu Ruoyun was sitting cross-legged on the bed, her eyes closed. There was a thick layer of spiritual qi encasing her entire body, slowly entering through her pores.
Suddenly, a burst of strange fluctuations came from behind the door. Gu Ruoyun abruptly opened her eyes. Cold light flashed across her clear pupils as she said: “Someone has entered the formation! I wonder who has come to disturb us at such a late hour!”
The formation in this compound had been set up by Zixie. Those whose ranks were lower than martial emperor would never be able to get out!
She tossed her sleeves and got up, striding out with large steps.
Wei Yiyi spotted Gu Ruoyun from afar and hurried to shout out to her.
Bai Chuan was standing in brocade clothing next to her, bashful. When he looked at Gu Ruoyun, his gaze carried a little awkwardness, most likely because he had thought of Wei Yiyi’s proposal to make him into a male pet.
Of course, Gu Ruoyun didn’t bother with him and walked to Wei Yiyi without leave. She asked: “Who’s the intruder?”
“I’m not sure.”
Wei Yiyi shook her head. “That fellow’s still within the formation. I was waiting for him to spend all his strength before I capture him for interrogation.”
“There’s no need for such trouble,” Gu Ruoyun smiled, “Yunyao, go and get him for me.”
A light flashed, and in the blink of an eye, an elegant woman dressed in chrysanthemum-yellow clothes appeared before the men of the Devil Sect. Her black tresses fell like a waterfall, her every gesture was extremely graceful and noble; she was exactly like a true well-bred young lady.
However, upon seeing what happened next, everyone’s expressions changed…
