“Xiao Yun, did I say something wrong?”
Seeing that Gu Ruoyun had sunk into silence, a wave of panic unconsciously began to build in Qianbei Ye’s heart, so he decided to word his question carefully.
Gu Ruoyun shook her head, her gaze a little complicated: “Xiao Ye, why did you protect me back then when Ling Yi was about to hit me? Why are you treating me so well?”
“I don’t know,” Qianbei Ye looked at the girl’s delicate face, his red pupils showing his resolve, “I only know that, from the first time I saw you, I wanted to protect you.”
The depths of Gu Ruoyun’s heart shook, and she slowly closed her eyes.
In the past, someone had also said that he would protect her and take care of her, but in the end? She had caused the death of her little brother because she had placed her trust in the wrong person…
“Xiao Ye, I’ve been here for more than a month. I don’t know if Hundred Herb Hall has encountered any trouble or not, so I’m going to visit there first.”
The girl opened her eyes, a smile on her pretty face.
Mother, Yu’er, Grandfather… Rest assured, there’ll be a day when I’ll return to the East Peak Mainland and use our enemies’ blood to pave the path for my return…
“In addition, Xiao Ye, there’s something I’d like you to help me with…”
In Hundred Herb Hall, all was silent.
Since Ling Yu had been pushed into retreat by Elder Yu a month ago, she had not come looking for trouble again; it was peaceful to the point that everyone had forgotten Ling Yu’s existence…
At this moment, when Shopkeeper Zhao spotted Gu Ruoyun walking into the hall, he was overjoyed in his heart and hurriedly walked up to her in welcome: “Eldest Miss, you’ve come?”
“Mm, where’s Elder Yu?”
Gu Ruoyun’s gaze swept the hall, but she didn’t see Elder Yu’s figure.
“Eldest Miss, Elder Yu isn’t in Hundred Herb Hall right now. Would you like this servant to call him?”
“Yes, go call Elder Yu and tell him that I have some urgent business. Also…” Gu Ruoyun casually brought out a piece of paper and indifferently said, “Bring all the herbs written on this piece of paper to me as fast as you can.”
“Yes, Eldest Miss.”
Shopkeeper Zhao glanced at the herbs that Gu Ruoyun wanted and was inwardly surprised. However, he didn’t say a word and respectfully took his leave.
He was rather curious in his heart. The herbs that Eldest Miss wanted were extremely precious: some would only grow a single leaf every few hundred years. What was she going to do with these? However, with Hundred Herb Hall’s resources, it was but a moment’s time before he brought all these herbs in front of Gu Ruoyun.
Following that, Elder Yu had also appeared…
“I need to leave for a moment. Elder Yu, wait for me outside the room. In addition, don’t let anyone come in and disturb me.”
Having said so, she turned and walked towards the courtyard in the back.
Although Shopkeeper Zhao and Elder Yu were extremely curious, none of them questioned Gu Ruoyun’s orders…
Inside the Ancient Divine Pagoda, right after Gu Ruoyun entered, she immediately inquired: “Zixie, I’ve already gotten the materials for the Spirit Gathering Pill. Are we going to start refining it now?”
Zixie smiled: “The method to refine this Spirit Gathering Pill is a little different from the way we refined the Qi Gathering Pill. However, they’ll produce the same result. For you, it isn’t too difficult. Alright, now you can try it out…”
Gu Ruoyun inclined her head before turning her gaze to the cauldron…
When the sun set in the west…
The old man stood outside the door without moving, just like a statue. Eldest Miss had been inside the room for the entire day, from the time she had entered up till now, and there hadn’t been a single hint of movement either. He didn’t know what the situation was like inside…
Just as he was puzzling over why Gu Ruoyun had been looking for him, the door to the room behind him was slowly pushed opened, and then the girl’s clear voice called for him.
“Elder Yu, come in.”
“Yes, Eldest Miss.”
Hearing this, Elder Yu turned to walk into the room. Looking at the girl standing in the center of the room, he said with an expression of the utmost respect: “I wonder what business Eldest Miss has summoned me for today?”
