"Let me guess, are you guys from Wind Valley or the Lin family?" Gu Ruoyun gently stroked her chin and laughed icily as she said, "If my guess is correct, you're from the Lin family! The Eldest Lady of Wind Valley would not be so stupid to send people to capture me here. However, it goes without saying that you're far more composed compared to the last time. You've even sent Martial Saints along as well!"
The Lin family from First City were the ones who had plotted to capture my older brother and caused my parents' separation!
They're also the reason why Father has been working so hard!
"Gu Ruoyun, how dare you!" The middle-aged man scoffed icily as he stared domineeringly down at her. "Previously, the members of the Lin family had extended an invitation to you as a guest in our Lin household. Instead, you had collaborated with Grand Lord Hong Lian and murdered the Lin family members! This is a debt that the Lin family shall collect from you sooner or later! However, the Lin family has always practiced returning good for evil. We will give you a chance to atone for your sins. As long as you follow us back to the Lin family home, we'll spare your life!"
Gu Ruoyun laughed.
Her smile was filled with an icy chill and it further enraged the middle-aged man.
"You want me to follow you back to the Lin family home?" Gu Ruoyun smirked as replied. Her eyes were clear and cold as she continued, "Then what? Use me as a means to threaten my father? Do you think that I'd do as you say? Besides, it seems that First City has its own set of rules. Cultivators at the rank of Martial Saint and above aren't allowed to leave First City without permission. Aren't you afraid that those people from First City would punish the Lin family for shirking the rules like that?"
The middle-aged man's face was ashen. The Lin family had to do this was because they had no other way.
Grand Lord Hong Lian's power was growing far too quickly! If they want to eliminate him now, they would need to send out half of the Lin family's powerful cultivators! However, if they really were to mobilize that many Lin family cultivators, it was likely that they would be stopped even before they could step out from First City.
Hence, he had to represent the cultivators of the Lin family and capture Grand Lord Hong Lian's daughter!
However, upon leaving First City, he never thought that he would hear a rumor about how this woman was a Pill Master! If that was the case, the Lin family seriously needs to get rid of the father and daughter pair more than ever now. Otherwise, the Lin family's doomsday would arrive very soon!
"Little girl, let me offer a bit of advice, don't retaliate unnecessarily. That trouble-making father of yours has constantly antagonized the Lin family. The Lin family had always shown mercy by allowing him to drag out an ignoble existence for so many years. We've already shown him so much benevolence! After this, don't blame us for being discourteous!"
"Showing mercy? Drag out an ignoble existence? Are you certain that you're talking about the Lin family and my old man?" Gu Ruoyun replied as she chuckled softly. Her smile was extremely calm but when her voice rang in everyone's ears, they could clearly hear her disdain.
"Based on what I do know, the Lin family has been trying to eliminate my father for many years now. However, it was to no avail as they were simply too weak. Not only had they allowed my father to escape, they've let him grow to the rank that he is today! If it wasn't for the fact that you can't do anything about my father, you wouldn't have needed to come and look for me! Only, it's just too bad. I, Gu Ruoyun, may not be able to go up against so many of you but if I want to escape, there hasn't been anyone who's been able to intercept me!"
The middle-aged man burst into laughter and exclaimed with a scornful look on his face, "Little girl, as humans, it's best not to act with such savagery. With so many of the Lin family members surrounding you, do you really think that you can escape? If we do let you get away, we won't have the right to stay in First City anymore."

That was right! This time, for safety's sake, the Lin family had deliberately sent him, a Martial Saint! Though little girl's powers were pretty substantial, in his hands, she would be nothing more than an insect.
Trying to escape? Dream on!
"All of you, attack! Take this girl alive!"
The middle-aged man gritted his teeth and bellowed an order.
The aura within the group of Lin family members whirled suddenly before charging towards Gu Ruoyun who was surrounded by them.
At the same time, a powerful aura also exploded from Gu Ruoyun's body. The powerful aura was so strong that it caused the group to stumble back unconsciously before they stopped and looked at her with astonishment.
The middle-aged man's eyes landed upon Gu Ruoyun's hand. He then lightly raised the corners of his lips as he exclaimed disdainfully, "A spiritual weapon? I never thought that you would have a spiritual weapon in your hands! No wonder you're so confident. If the people here today were ranked below Martial Saints, you might have been able to get away. Unfortunately, the gap between a Martial Saint and a Martial Supreme is no small distance, but actually the size of an entire gulf. You'll never be able to touch it, hahaha!"
He burst into laughter as a torrential wind rose piercingly around him. The surrounding trees were sucked into the sky and the middle-aged man, who was standing in the middle of the hurricane, curled his lips into a sneer. He then moved as fast as lightning and soon appeared in front of Gu Ruoyun.
Yunyao and the rest anxiously cried out from within her soul.
Unfortunately, it was already too late.
Just as Gu Ruoyun had pulled out her sword and was holding it in front of her chest, the middle-aged man's power slammed fiercely onto her body with a loud bang. The spiritual weapon in her hand was also hit by the destructive force from the energy blast and split into two right in front of her with a crack.
Is this the extent of a Martial Saint's power?
Regardless of how powerful she has become, she was as insignificant as an insect when faced with a Martial Saint.
Gu Ruoyun stumbled backward and her mouth was dripping with blood. Her delicate and pretty features were drained of color. She felt as if her internal organs were under heavy attack and the pain was excruciating.
The white pale dragon which resides in the spiritual weapon as its weapon spirit also roared in agony due to the damage sustained by the spiritual weapon.
Its voice was like a spell and caused Gu Ruoyun's heart to clench violently.
Even though the white dragon was previously defeated by Gu Ruoyun's and had chosen to become her weapon spirit for the sake of survival, after many years of fighting side by side, she has long come to consider it as her friend.
Now, hearing her friend's agonized roar, how could she not feel anxious?
"I'm sorry that I'm too weak. I wasn't able to protect you."
Gu Ruoyun bent down and picked up the two halves of the spiritual weapon before putting it into the Divine Weapon, Xiao Hei. She then turned her clear and cold gaze towards the middle-aged man once again, staring at him unfeelingly.
"Spiritual weapons are indeed precious. Unfortunately, when a spiritual weapon, no matter how precious it is, is contracted to a piece of trash, it will become trash as well! The power of trash is far too inferior so how can a spiritual weapon showcase its greatest potential? I, Lin Fei, on the other hand, do not require the use of a weapon when faced with trash like you! I can make you kneel before me and call me your grandfather even when I'm unarmed and defenseless!"
Lin Fei lifted his chin arrogantly as he stared down dominantly at Gu Ruoyun.
Gu Ruoyun gently closed her eyes.
At this moment, her heart was filled with extreme determination.
A Martial Saint's power is so powerful, and I will enter this world sooner or later.
When that time comes, everyone who has ever hurt me or my friends will pay a bitter price!
