General Luo could not resist applauding. He laughed as he said: “Gu Ruoyun, at first, I didn’t want to allow you and Luo Yin to keep in contact. Firstly, because you’re from the Gu family, and I was worried that Old Man Gu would try something against my daughter. Secondly, it was because you were too weak and cowardly. I, Luo Hongtian, have always admired those who have courage and spirit! Not long ago, I have heard people saying that your cowardliness was just a pretence, and I didn’t believe it at first… However, now I’ve personally witnessed that the rumours were indeed true. Not having talent by birth is something you can’t control, but character is something you can, and I admire your character! So if you ever leave the Gu family one day, you’re welcome to be a guest in my Luo family!”
Gu family? Lianqi Sect? He did not need to even consider the consequences of defying them.
He has always been this fearless, so why would he fear the Lianqi Sect?
Moreover, Gu Ruoyun’s words were very much to his liking.
With that kind of family, for her, there was simply no difference between having them or not.
Hun Fei’s expression sunk, he gazed darkly at General Luo, but said nothing.
However, Old Man Gu did not avoid the touchy topic and sneered: “Luo Hongtian, this is my Gu family’s business, it has nothing to do with you! You’re an outsider, so you’re not qualified to comment on this matter! Since this girl’s parents have been dead since she was little, I’m the one who has the right to make decisions for her! Elder Hun Fei, from now on, Gu Ruoyun belongs to your Lianqi Sect, whether you want to kill her or punish her, it’s all at your liberty.”
Hearing so, Hun Fei nodded in satisfaction.
The Gu family was more sensible.
Seeing that General Luo wanted to speak up on her behalf again, Gu Ruoyun smiled, stopping him from speaking: “General Luo, I’ll accept your good intentions, but this time, the opponents are the Gu family and the Lianqi Sect. I don’t want to see your Luo family facing any repercussions from this, so you don’t have to bother with this matter anymore. However, I, Gu Ruoyun, will always remember the great kindness you’ve shown me today.”
A person who flatters you when you are successful may not really mean it, but if someone speaks up for you in front of powerful enemies while you are a good-for-nothing, then he must be sincere.
So, she will remember General Luo’s kindness in her heart forever.
“No matter how many times you say it, my answer is still the same, I will never join the Lianqi Sect!”
Gu Ruoyun slowly looked up, the smile in her eyes slowly fading away, as she gazed straight into Hun Fei’s gloomy old face.
Hun Fei harrumphed: “Since you won’t see sense, don’t blame me for not being courteous!”
Having said that, his body flashed, and quickly arrived in front of Gu Ruoyun. Just as the Qi on his hand was about to smash into Gu Ruoyun, a loud crash sounded and the ground shook a few times.
“This… What’s going on?”
Hun Fei was forced to retreat a few steps, frowning, he asked: “That wave seemed like it came from the formation, did something happen to the formation?”
From start to end, the Lianqi Sect’s eldest miss, Shiyun, did not say a single word. Only after this wave, did she look towards the center of the formation, and with this one glance, she was rooted to the spot…
The formation exploded right under everyone’s eyes, fizzling into tiny spots of light that fell onto the hair of a devilishly handsome man.
They had never seen beauty to such a degree in a man before; beauty that could make all living creatures obey him, beauty that could make cities and kingdoms fall. Even these phrases did not seem enough to describe the breathtaking beauty that this man brought. It was as if the ground beneath his feet was covered with red spider lilies, his red robe lightly floating, and silver hair flying; even the heavens themselves would not have such a scene of absolute beauty.
