Gu Ruoyun exhaled and slowly opened her eyes. A small smile hung on her face. "I've finally broken through to the rank of a mid-level Martial Supreme. It certainly wasn't a waste of time coming here."
Once she had said that, her gaze fell upon the trembling flaming dragon next to her.
How could the flaming dragon still carry his previous splendor now? His eyes were filled with terror and resentment as well as a deep sense of grief. His body no longer displayed its initial bright and vigorous appearance. Instead, his body has become transparent and he looked as if a gust of wind could blow his spirit away.
It seems that Gu Ruoyun's actions earlier has indeed brought a great deal of harm to his spirit.
"I'm going to take the Dragon Phoenix Fruit now. You have no objections, right?"
Gu Ruoyun raised her brow as she asked.
She would have loved to swallow this flaming dragon entirely if her body had not begun to feel saturated.
Unfortunately, she could not contain such great power.
The flaming dragon quickly nodded. Would I dare to object? This little girl is a total lunatic! I've already ignited my lifetime's worth of flames yet not only was it not enough to burn her to death, she had nearly eaten me alive.
Upon remembering the woman's lunacy, the flaming dragon's heart began to feel limp.
"Oh?" Gu Ruoyun curled her lips. "Do you still want my body?"
The flaming dragon quickly shook his head. How could he still have the courage to covet her physical body? All he wanted now as for this madwoman to leave this place as soon as possible!
Even though his spirit had been imprisoned here and he has no freedom, it was better than having his spirit scattered and completely destroyed! After this madwoman had consumed part of him, his spirit has become particularly weak. It was likely that his current level of power was not even at the Martial Emperor rank.
What powers would he have left to snatch this madwoman's physical body away?
"Seeing as you have no further issues, I'm leaving."
Gu Ruoyun rose to her feet. The flaming dragon watched as she walked towards the Dragon Phoenix Fruit which was surrounded by the flowers and plucked it. She then carefully wrapped it in a cloth bag.
"I never thought that I would reap such great profits after coming to Wind Fall Village." Gu Ruoyun giggled softly. "However, this is all because of Xiao Yu's hard work. Even though I don't have the time to teach her medicine right now, it wouldn't be a bad idea to gift her with a few books on medicine before I leave."
This blazing cave was located in a mountain at the back of Wind Fall Village. Hence, Gu Ruoyun was not very far from Wind Fall Village. She could still go back for a short visit after leaving the cave.
After that thought, Gu Ruoyun walked out of the cave without further delay.
"That madwoman has finally left."
Once he saw that Gu Ruoyun has left the cave, the flaming dragon heaved a sigh of relief and lamented resentfully, "She had consumed so much of my soul. How many years of recuperation would I need for a full recovery? I hope that I'll never see that madwoman again! It's too scary! Are humans these days that insane?"
The flaming dragon hurriedly shook his head.
He has been imprisoned her for a few thousand years now and has not been in contact with the secular world for so long. If humans were just as insane as that woman nowadays, he would much rather stay here for the rest of his life. This was a far better fate than being made into dessert for those lunatics' consumption.
Gu Ruoyun did not expect for her one inadvertent action to bring about a chain reaction. From that moment on, anyone who had unwittingly wandered into the blazing cave would be fortunate enough to leave with their lives.
At Wind Fall Village.
Gu Ruoyun paused in her footsteps outside the village as she looked at Wind Fall Village's plaque which was lying on the ground. Her lucid and elegant features sank as her clear gaze darkened.
"I've only been away for a few days, what has happened to Wind Fall Village? I don't know why but I have a very bad feeling about this..."

Wind Fall Village, a once quiet and peaceful place, was now tainted with blood. The thick smell of death reeked throughout the entire village.
This was what Gu Ruoyun saw the very moment she entered Wind Fall Village...
The bodies of countless familiar-looking villagers were lying on the muddy ground. The earth beneath them was soaked in blood and the thick, metallic smell filled the air. These villagers had entertained her enthusiastically and full of vitality not so very long ago.
However, she could no longer see their simple and honest smiles. All that was left in its place was the dull color of dead ashes.
"I've only been away for a few days. What on earth happened here? Who killed them?"
Gu Ruoyun stumbled and her voice trembled as she asked.
She then noticed a small, deathly pale and freckled face in a pool of blood. However, that little face could no longer display her innocent and lively smile. All that remains was a pair of dull, wide-opened eyes as if she had died with an unresolved grievance.
Gu Ruoyun reached out her hand and gently placed it on the little maiden's eyelids, closing them.
"Nian Ye, do you know that my dream is to become a great doctor? I want to heal the sick and wounded! I even want to be able to snatch the life of a dying person from the clutches of the King of Hell!"
"Nian Ye, will you come back?"
"Really? Then let's pinky swear. You're not allowed to lie to me."
Gu Ruoyun slowly closed her eyes. After a long pause, she opened them again and turned towards the little maiden in the pool of blood. She murmured, "Xiao Yu, I've returned. Unfortunately, I had been too late but don't you worry, I won't let the culprits who had butchered the village get away with this no matter who they were!"
Just as Gu Ruoyun was rising to her feet, a frail voice called out from behind her, causing her body to stiffen. She hurriedly tried to find the source of the voice amongst the bodies.
The frail voice cried out once again. Gu Ruoyun finally managed to locate the person who had been crying out to her.
Gu Ruoyun rushed to Auntie Hua's side and helped her up. "You're still alive?" she exclaimed, "I have medicine. Swallow this quickly."
"No." Auntie Hua shook her head. Her entire body was drenched in blood and her voice was weak as she continued, "My body... I know it myself. There's no use... Only... Only, I never thought that I'd be able to hold on until your return."
"Auntie Hua..." Gu Ruoyun's heart trembled fiercely. She tried to speak but Auntie Hua cut her off.
"Nian Ye, those people... Those people had come here to find you. I think I heard something about... About some Lin family."
Auntie Hua had to gasp for breath with every word that she spoke yet she persisted. She was determined to finish what she needed to say.
The Lin family!
A fiery rage immediately ignited within Gu Ruoyun's heart. It was a raging flame that could destroy the heavens and earth.
She never thought that the Lin family would be the ones responsible for destroying Wind Fall Village!
"Nian Ye..." Auntie Hua saw the overflowing fury on Gu Ruoyun's face along with her guilt and remorse as she muttered weakly, "You're a good person. We don't blame you. I... We only blame those cruel people. Previously, if it had not been for you... Perhaps, perhaps, we would not have been able to destroy those bandits and we wouldn't have enjoyed those few peaceful days... So, we don't blame you."
"Auntie Hua! Eat this pill, perhaps you'll live, I..."
"Really... There's really no need." Auntie Hua shook her head as her voice grew weaker and weaker as if it would disappear at any moment. "My family, friends... And fellow villagers are all gone. Even if I can be saved, I don't want to be saved. Nian Ye, you are a good and kind child. We, the people of Wind Fall Village... Don't blame you."
It was so hard guys. So hard to make it through this chapter without crying. My heart is in pieces now. I'm gonna have a good cry before I continue, so that we can all have the satisfaction of the Lin family's total annihilation.
