Gu Ruoyun was just about to turn away when she heard those words. Her feet paused unconsciously, and the corner of her lips raised slightly, carrying a trace of a smile on the girl’s pretty face.
“I did find Xiao Ye, but I didn’t make him follow me. Why? Does Miss Shiyun recognise Xiao Ye?”
“Miss Gu, that’s exactly what I mean. I’ve indeed seen this man before, and we were even married for some time… It’s unfortunate that he doesn’t remember it. So I’m reminding Miss Gu, that if you lie too much, your lies will be revealed someday.”
The meaning in her words was that, the one who Qianbei Ye really knew was her, but through a chain of accidents, he had somehow met with Gu Ruoyun and caused the current situation.
“What does Miss Shiyun mean by this? Don’t tell me that she’s acquainted with the man who killed Ling Yi just now? But the man has lost his memory, so he mistook Gu Ruoyun for her?”
“That’s right, who knew that Gu Ruoyun could be this shameless? She could even speak such lies. It’s no wonder. How could someone as plain as her be able to match a man as beautiful as him?”
“Standing next to Miss Shiyun, it’s like the difference between a phoenix and a wild chicken! Furthermore, what kind of person is Miss Shiyun? She’s the heir of the Weapon Refining Sect, and she’s an absolute genius who’s already reached martial king at such a young age. How could Gu Ruoyun even be compared to her?”
The crowd gave their opinions one after another, and all looked at Gu Ruoyun with eyes filled with disdain.
At this moment, no one noticed the restaurant nearby. A man was holding a fan and lying lazily on a soft chair, surrounded by female servants, lively and colourful.
The man’s upturned gaze passed through the crowd and landed on the young girl. He then smiled; absolutely beautiful and elegant.
“She’s Gu Shengxiao’s good-for-nothing sister? Interesting, Gu Shengxiao’s sister is indeed very interesting. With this kind of rare talent, she’s actually being labelled as a good-for-nothing.”
Tsk tsk, if someone with this level of talent was a good-for-nothing, then there wouldn’t be any geniuses in this world.
According to common knowledge, the higher you got, the harder it was to break through into the next rank. Some people could spend their entire lives and never pass some bottlenecks. However, there was only one kind of talent in the world that could completely ignore all bottlenecks. Even though her speed at rising through the ranks wouldn’t be able to match other geniuses, but the further she got, the more chances her talent would have to shine…
This kind of talent, was to have a spiritual ocean much larger than normal.
And it was obvious that Gu Ruoyun was someone with that talent…
A glint flashed through his pupils, and the man laughed soundlessly: “The only person I admire in this world is Gu Shengxiao, so I wondered what kind of person his sister would be. It looks like I haven’t come to Azure Dragon Country in vain this time.”
Thinking up to here, the smile on his face became even more pronounced: “Qingyi, investigate everything about Gu Ruoyun for me.”
“Yes, My Lord!”
Outside Hundred Herb Hall, Gu Ruoyun did not say anything. That indifferent expression made it seem as though she was ignoring the other.
It was at this time that an ill-timed voice cut in.
“Gu Ruoyun, I didn’t think that you were this despicable!” Gu Panpan opened her eyes wide as she spoke in a tone full of self-righteousness, as if Gu Ruoyun was a devil that everyone should punish, “Luckily, Grandfather had the foresight to chase someone like you out of our family! Otherwise, wouldn’t you be dragging my Gu family’s reputation through the mud right now?”
However, as soon as she had finished her words, mocking cold laughter sounded from the side.
“Oh? Your Gu family still has some reputation left? Hehe, that’s the first I’ve heard of it.”
Luo Yin smiled coldly as she said: “Gu Panpan, there isn’t any place for you to cut in here. You had best shut your mouth for me. If you make me angry, I’ll stab you to death with a cucumber!”
Gu Panpan was so angry that her cheeks flushed red; she gritted her teeth and spat out two words.
