Chapter 1014: Gu Lan's Identity (6)

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

Initially, Lan Ge had assumed that Gu Ruoyun had denied him and was acting out in anger. However, when he heard the next part of her explanation, his blue eyes revealed a glittering light, just like a precious stone. He stared at Gu Ruoyun unblinkingly.

"You're a pill master?"

A pill master?

The surrounding stall owners had initially been staring curiously at Lan Ge's stall. They snorted disdainfully upon hearing his exclamation.

This fellow, Lan Ge, thinks that just because he's casually pinched a few sweets, he can claim to be a pill master? Just how valuable are pill masters? Aside from Gu Ruoyun who rose to fame during the Medicine Sect's general meeting not too long ago, no other pill masters have appeared.

He has the gall to award himself with such a large cap?

Only Ye Ying remained silent. His gazed turned from one of surprise to one of shock.

He could tell that Miss Gu was actually guiding Lan Ge. Could it be that Lan Ge is actually capable of refining pills?

"How unfortunate." Gu Ruoyun shook her head and smiled gently. "The taste is pretty good but the force is not strong enough. It can only cure the mild illnesses of an average person. If it were a wounded cultivator, it would not be able to cure him at all."

Lan Ge turned very red in the face. "I don't have a pill formula," he quipped with embarrassment. "If you gave me a pill formula, I can definitely refine a pill based on the formula."

"No." Gu Ruoyun remained smiling. She spoke in a light voice, "Even if I gave you a pill formula, you might not be able to refine the pill so soon. However, if you're willing to become my disciple, I'm willing to teach you."

It goes without saying, this man is truly a genius.

He managed to refine a pill without a pill formula! Talent like this far surpasses the average! If I could teach him, his future achievements would shock the mainland!

Besides, another thing that concerned Gu Ruoyun was the other layer of the fellow's identity...

A light flashed across Gu Ruoyun's eyes at the thought of this.

If my guess is right, Lan Ge is not completely human! He's a demibeast human! He holds the blood of a spiritual beast in his veins, except that it's not entirely pure.

Hence, Lan Ge's mother must be a spiritual beast!

She never expected to reap such profitable gains during her first visit to the black market! Lan Ge, who holds all the qualities of both man and a spiritual beast, would have a rapid increase in cultivation... If he used the right methods.

"You... You're a pill master? And you're willing to take me in as your disciple?"

Lan Ge was filled with excitement.

This woman only needed to swallow my refined pills, and she managed to guess the medicinal herbs I've used to refine them. She must be a true pill master, no doubts about it!

Gu Ruoyun smiled gently. "Let's go. There's nothing more to see in this black market. Let's go home."

Ye Ying was a little shocked. "Miss Gu, are you not interested in the treasures hidden in the black market at all?" He asked, turning towards Gu Ruoyun. "If there's anything you like, I, Ye Ying will purchase it for you as a gift. Consider it my way of thanking you for saving our World Destruction Mercenaries."

Hearing this, Gu Ruoyun shook her head. "I've already claimed the greatest treasure in the black market. There are many other treasures, but they are not what I need."

She's already claimed the greatest treasure in the black market?

Liquid mist gathered in Ye Ying's head. He simply could not understand what Gu Ruoyun had meant.

During his hesitation, Gu Ruoyun had already stepped out of the black market. Even Lan Ge had began to close his stall and chased after the woman ahead...

Chapter 1015: Gu Lan's Identity (7)

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

The World Destruction Mercenaries' Unit was situated in the northern area of Green Maple City. It was more withered and decayed when compared with the hustle and bustle of the eastern area.

At this moment, in the World Destruction Mercenaries' territory, Gu Lan was leading Xia Linyu to the room to get some rest when suddenly, a noise was heard from outside the door.

"Scumbags of the World Destruction Mercenaries, get your asses out here!"

The voice was clear and crisp, echoing throughout the World Destruction Mercenaries' Unit and through the skies.

Gu Lan mildly raised her attractive brows as a bite of impatience flashed in her eyes. She turned towards the young man in front of her and said, "Brother Xia, the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries have arrived. The person who just made the announcement was Jun Shi of the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries. You go get some rest, I'll stop them."

"The Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries?" Xia Linyu furrowed his brows as a thought-provoking air flitted across his clear gaze. "You mean the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries who had forced you into Nemesis Forest?"

Gu Lan nodded. "The very same. They must have heard the news once the World Destruction Mercenaries had stepped into Green Maple City. I never thought that they would take advantage of our Leader's absence and launch and attack. Brother Xia, don't worry, I'll protect you. Besides, these Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries are here for us. You're only a guest so they shouldn't hurt you."

Protect me? 

Xia Linyu laughed bitterly.

When have I been reduced to such a weakling that I would need a woman to protect me!

It's the same with big sister and this little girl...

Gu Lan did not wait for Xia Linyu's response. Instead, she turned around and went out the door. Her pink robes flashed across the young man's limpid gaze and soon disappeared from his sight.

At the grand door, a group of gruff brutes had surrounded the front yard. When they saw the young woman walking out from inside, they immediately burst into laughter.

"Haha, I never thought that the World Destruction Mercenaries would have the guts to come back! If I were you and had managed to survive with great difficulty, I would definitely hide away and live an ignoble purpose. You, on the other hand, chose to return to Green Maple City."

"The Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries have tolerated you long enough. Since we've shed all pretense of codiality, there's no need for us to be nice to you scumbags! Gu Lan, surrender if you know what's good for you! Don't waste your breath!"

"Why are you alone? Where's that little fair-faced boy that you've brought back? I see that he's lost an arm. I wonder if he's crippled down there too? Why don't you come with me? I promise that I'll treat you to delicious food and drink hard liquor. Can that crippled, fair-faced boy satisfy you at all?"

The crude words they spoke caused Gu Lan's pale, pinkish face to flush red. Two flames flickered within her large, vivid eyes.

Suddenly, she burst into an icy laugh.

The smile on her sweet and lovable face was a delight to the eye.

Amongst the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries, some began to salivate as they stared lustfully at Gu Lan's body from top to toe — not a single inch was spared.

"And I was wondering who you were." Gu Lan laughed icily as she continued, "You're all just a bunch of spineless cowards."

"Spineless cowards? Who are you calling spineless cowards?"

A mercenary scowled at Gu Lan icily. If it had not been for the fact that his Leader has yet to issue an order, he would have pressed the damned girl beneath him long ago and ravaged her. Let's see if she would still have the guts to speak to him in such a manner then.

"Why? Taking advantage of my Leader's absence and coming here to bully a weak little woman like me? If you have the skills, come at us when our Leader has returned!" Gu Lan sneered as she spoke, "I wonder if you have the guts?"

Gu Lan's words angered the mercenaries so much that their faces turned ashen. Just as they were about to teach the damned girl a lesson, their leader, a middle-aged man, raised his hand and stopped them from acting rashly.

"Gu Lan." The middle-aged man looked at Gu Lan before continuing with a serious look on his face, "You think too highly of that kid, Ye Ying. I won't ever lose to him if we were to fight one-on-one. However, I don't want to give other organizations an opportunity so I'm choosing the method that will create the least casualties. Hence, I'll have to trouble you to come back with us to the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries Unit. As for the fair-faced boy who had come back with you..."

The middle-aged man paused before he lifted the corners of his lips into a creepy angle, "We can only blame it on his association with the World Destruction Mercenaries!"

His meaning was, he would not spare the young man who had returned with Gu Lan!

He would never spare anyone who has any connections with the World Destruction Mercenaries!

If one does not remove the roots, cut grass will regrow in the future!

Gu Lan never expected the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries to not spare Xia Linyu. Her heart filled with anger as the cold smile on her face deepened, "Brother Xia is only the World Destruction Mercenaries' guest but I never thought that the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries would turn out to be deranged to such a degree! I only wish to leave you with a piece of advice; there are some people in this world that you should never offend. Don't invite a greater calamity onto yourselves!"

At this moment, Gu Lan no longer displayed her sweet and lovable appearance. Instead, she was emitting a terrifying aura which was different from most of the mercenaries.


The middle-aged man laughed maniacally. His laughter was arrogant and smug. He then said, "Gu Lan, you are young yet you enjoy spouting such wild banter. To this day, the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries have never heard of anyone that we should never offend aside from those few great families. Are you telling me that this young man is a member of one of those families?"

His face was filled with disdain as he stared at Gu Lan contemptuously.

"He isn't from any of those families."

Gu Lan laughed icily as she replied.

Obviously, Brother Xia is not from any of those great families but... I am connected to those forces. If the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries were to kill me, I believe that they won't be alive for very much longer.

Once those people have received word of my death, they will avenge me!

"Since he isn't from any of those families, the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries can afford to offend him!" The middle-aged man narrowed his eyes as a cold light flashed in his pupils, "Guards, take Gu Lan away. Kill every other idle person!"

"I'd like to see if any of you has the audacity to try!"

Gu Lan's expression changed greatly and she hurriedly blocked the way with her body. An anxious air appeared on her sweet and pretty face as she glared fiercely over at the group before her.

At this moment, she was filled with regret. She regretted having brought Gu Ruoyun and Xia Linyu back to Green Maple City.

Initially, they had intended to thank them for saving them and had only thought of bringing them back as their guests! However, she never thought that the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries would take advantage of the Leader's absence and launch a killing spree. If she had known this earlier on, she would never have brought Xia Linyu back to the World Destruction Mercenaries' territory.

Unfortunately, there was no cure for regret in this world.

All she could do now was to bar the enemies' way in and prevent anyone from entering the door.

"Little lion, come out and help me."

Gu Lan gritted her teeth and cried out loudly.

Soon, a loud roar sounded from inside the great door. A lion covered in flames charged from the gates before their eyes and bared his fangs as he glared at the intruders.

"Little lion, we mustn't let anyone harm Brother Xia no matter what. You must help me to delay them, at least until the Leader and the others have returned!"

This was all she could do for now.

Gu Lan's gaze shot towards a patch of the sky not too far away. Her large, vivid eyes gradually clouded over with grief.

Leader, you must hurry back. Otherwise, I'm not sure how long I can hold on...
