Chapter 1077: Main City, Four Great Families (1)

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

Zixie's eyes had remained fixated on Gu Ruoyun the entire time while a gentle smile danced upon his handsome and wicked features. How could he fail to realize that Gu Ruoyun was scaring the flaming dragon on purpose?

She had never intended to cause any further trouble for the flaming dragon from the beginning. However, the flaming dragon had completely lost his nerve so how could she miss out on the opportunity to take advantage of that?

Main City.

The position of this city in the Northern Block Territory is equivalent to the Imperial City. It was also the gathering place for powerful cultivators!

Everyone knows that the Four Great Families control Main City. The Four Great Families may seem to get along harmoniously on the surface but in reality, they were constantly competing against one another in secret. Out of the four families, the Jiang family and the Gu family have created a marriage alliance in order to solidify relations. Even though the Gu family only had Gu Lan, a girl, in their third generation, she has long been betrothed to the Jiang family. Amongst the numerous youngsters of the Jiang family, anyone who could win her affections will become the Jiang family's heir.

However, even though the Jiang family had given Gu Lan the right to choose her suitor, she has no wish to be made into a tool for marriage alliance. She had run away from Main City a year ago and her whereabouts were now unknown! To this day, no one has been able to locate her.

The other two Families of Main City have created an alliance as well. However, because they did not have a marriage alliance, the relationship between both parties could not be compared to the one between the Gu and the Jiang family.

At this moment, an old man was sitting cross-legged on the floor in the Lan family's secret chamber. There was no sign of any emotions on his elderly features.

Lan Shao, the Master of the Lan family, stood in front of him in a very deferential manner. He did not dare say a word before the old man had spoken first. He only glanced at the old man in front of him from the corner of his eye from time to time.

If anyone else were here, they would certainly be able to guess the old man's identity.

Who else could make Lan Shao act with such reverence aside from the Old Master of the Lan family who had been in closed-door cultivation for many years?


Just as Lan Shao was beginning to grow fidgety, the old man finally opened his mouth, "I've heard that a woman has offended the Red Lotus Territory's emissary a while ago?"

Lan Shao did not know what the Old Master had meant by that question. He replied respectfully, "Apparently, that woman had seduced the Grand Lord of Red Lotus Territory which had made Miss Bai Yin very angry. However, that woman has already received retribution and has been annihilated in lava."

The Old Master sighed and said, "Miss Bai Yin is an emissary of Red Lotus Territory so there's nothing wrong if you listened to her. However, Shao'er, the Lan family is an estate which has been inherited from our ancestors. I don't want it to be destroyed by the hands of your generation. Do you understand?"

Lan Shao joined his fists while his entire face was filled with reverence. "Father, I understand. I only wish to establish a good relationship with the Red Lotus Territory so I don't dare offend Miss Bai Yin."

"Mm." The Old Master nodded. "I've heard that a genius girl has soared across the horizon in the Medicine Sect's general meeting a while ago. She has even refined a legendary pill. Besides, I've heard that she has arrived in the Northern Block Territory. During this period of time, please tell the members of the Lan family to stop causing trouble for the Medicine Manor's subordinates and send some people to keep a close watch on the Medicine Manor. I believe that she would certainly head to the Medicine Sect's official residence in Main City once she has arrived here. You must establish a good relationship with this genius. In comparison with the Red Lotus Territory, that Gu Ruoyun woman is more important!"

Even though the Old Master has been in closed-door cultivation for over ten years, he was very aware of everything which was going on in the world outside.

Even Lan Shao did not know why even the slightest sign of disturbance or trouble in the mainland could not be kept from him.

"Father, even if you had not mentioned it, I know. No one can surpass the position of a pill master on the mainland. Even Bai Yin, an emissary of the Red Lotus Territory, could not be compared to her!" A light flickered in Lan Shao's eyes. "Hence, I will establish a good relationship with her before any other organization no matter what. Especially before the Jiang family and Gu family! As long as Gu Ruoyun has a preference for us, we would probably anger those old fogies to death!"

Now, each time Lan Shao remembered everything that the Jiang and Gu family had done to the Lan family, he would gnash his teeth hatefully.

Translator's Thoughts


Hello guys! I just wanted to thank everyone again for your messages of support. They really mean a lot to me and I really wish I could reply all of you, personally. <3 The situation in my family has kinda gotten better, although we're not totally out of the woods yet, there is progress. :)

I've actually fallen sick from the multiple trips to the ICU in the hospital over the past week and have been quarantined from visiting the ICU because they need to keep the area sterialised. But I consider this a blessing in disguise, as I've managed to use my quarantine time to complete a stockpile of chapters so that there will be no delays in our regular updates. :) Again, thank you so much for your kind messages. They've really motivated me to work harder in giving you guys my best work!

Chapter 1078: Main City, Four Great Families (2)

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

"I never thought that we would arrive in Main City so soon. Unfortunately, I could not find any of the other medicinal herbs along the way."

Outside the city gate, a green-robed woman paused in her steps. Her eyes stared at the grand, ancient city gate in a profound manner before muttering, "Let's go. I'm going to the Medicine Manor for a while. Since the Medicine Sect has given the Northern Block Territory to me, the Medicine Manor shall be our official lodgings in the Northern Block Territory from now on."

She slowly walked through the city gates as she spoke.

The man in purple robes who was following next to her smiled mildly. His purple eyes were like colored glass and displayed an enchanting light. There was no doubt that this man was extremely handsome. Clad in long purple robes, he looked awe-inspiring, demonic, and incomparably noble.

He looked like a true aristocrat and was so beautiful that he could strike a chord in one's heart!

Once the pair walked into Main City, they immediately attracted numerous people's attention. The crowd's gaze seemed to be fixed squarely on their backs.

They have never seen such a beautiful and peerless man before. If he were to glance back and smile at them, they would willingly give everything that they had to him. However, the man's eyes only beheld the woman in green next to him and his smile only blossomed for her alone.

"Zixie, we're here."

Suddenly, the woman in green next to him paused in her steps. Her light, pure, and honest voice was like a gentle breeze which brushed across every ear.

The people who initially had their eyes on Zixie instantly turned their gaze towards the official residence in front of the woman. When they saw the sign on the official residence, everyone found it beyond comprehension.

The words on the sign were very clear. Even though it was a little run down, it was not unfamiliar to the people of Main City.

Medicine Manor!

The first place that the strange man and woman are visiting is Medicine Manor?

Everyone in the Northern Block Territory knows the story behind the Medicine Manor's Master! The Medicine Sect may hold an awe-inspiring presence in the world outside but the powerful cultivators from the Four Great Families in Main City have already achieved the high-level Martial Supreme rank. They were only one step away from becoming a Martial Saint.

Hence, even though the Medicine Sect was the Master of the Northern Block Territory, they would not attach any importance to the Medicine Sect anyway, what more serve those people.

When they saw the two figures enter Medicine Manor, the people on the street began to erupt into a fervent discussion.

"Can you guess who they are?"

"I don't know. Doesn't the Medicine Sect frequently send people to take care of the Medicine Manor? Unfortunately, those people have left one by one after being threatened by the Four Great Families. If my guess is right, the person who has arrived in the Medicine Manor must be the young genius."

"Tsk, tsk, so what if she's a genius? They may be considered as a genius in the Medicine Sect but this is the Northern Block Territory's land. Even if the Sect Master of the Medicine Sect were to arrive, the Four Great Families' cultivators can make him leave with his tail between his legs! I never thought that the Medicine Sect would be so persistent. My advice is that they should surrender the deed to the Northern Block Territory."

"Are you mad? Haven't you heard of the young pill master who had emerged from the Medicine Sect a while ago? I hear that the Medicine Sect has already given the Northern Block Territory to that pill master. If this land belongs to her, perhaps the Four Great Families would never be so impudent from now on! Such a peerless genius like this is a person that any organization would wish to recruit."

Pill master?

Instantly, someone who overheard this began to snort disdainfully. "The Medicine Sect has indeed granted the Northern Block Territory to that pill master. However, do you really think that pill masters would be so idle and have time to watch over the territory? I think that the person who has been sent over this time is only a genius from the Medicine Sect. People like that pill master would never possibly come to a place like this!"

Everyone else nodded in agreement.

That was right. As a pill master, how could Gu Ruoyun possibly have the time to manage the Medicine Manor? Therefore, the Medicine Sect must have sent one of their geniuses this time! The conclusion to this was also very obvious. Their fate would not be any better than those who had come before them.

How unfortunate that such a wickedly handsome man would also meet a downfall from the Four Great Families' attacks...

"What did you say?"

At the Lan family home.

Lan Shao instantly rose to his feet from his chair. His face was filled with joy. "Were you speaking the truth? Someone has spotted two young people entering Medicine Manor?"

"Reporting to the Master," a bodyguard joined his fists as he replied respectfully, "This subordinate has indeed noticed two people entering Medicine Manor while I was patrolling the streets. Therefore, I had quickly returned to report this to you, Master."

"Good, very good! I am going to make a trip to Medicine Manor right now. Servants, bring me the spiritual weapon that I've obtained not too long ago. I believe that this spiritual weapon can successfully grant us Master Gu's good favor towards the Lan family."

Lan Shao smiled imeperatively. From his point of view, no one could resist the lull of a spiritual weapon.

He believes that Gu Ruoyun was just the same!

As long as he establishes a good relationship with her before the other Great Families, pills would then be rolling towards them! By then, collapsing the other Families would not be an impossible feat.

The Medicine Manor.

It could not be compared to the majesty of the Medicine Sect on the mainland. The entire courtyard was wretched and a hunch-backed old man was sweeping the courtyard in a slow and deliberate manner.

The old man was shocked when he noticed Gu Ruoyun and Zixie's arrival. He paused his actions and asked in a hoarse voice, "May I ask who you are looking for?"

Gu Ruoyun smiled faintly. "The Medicine Sect's Master hasn't informed you of my arrival?"

"You..." The old man instantly regained his senses. His body shook mildly as he exclaimed with excitement, "You're Great Master Gu Ruoyun?"

Gu Ruoyun mildly nodded as her eyes surveyed the entire courtyard. Her voice was as indifferent as the wind. "This Medicine Manor is rather large. Are you the only one here?

"That's right." The old man laughed bitterly. "I'm the housekeeper of Medicine Manor, Zhang Lin. As for the rest, they have all lost their endurance from the Four Great Families' coercion and run away. The position of the Medicine Manor is rather awkward in the Northern Block Territory. That's why the Four Great Families have been pushing us around. I'm the only one left now."

Gu Ruoyun has long been aware that the people of Northern Block Territory would not welcome anyone from the Medicine Sect. However, she never thought that it would be this bad.

She fell silent.

She finally replied after a long pause, "From now on, I will be managing the Northern Block Territory. I will also be taking care of the Medicine Manor. You will continue your position as the housekeeper of Medicine Manor while I'll take care of everything else myself."

Wei Yiyi and the others have been in closed-door cultivation for a very long time. Their powers have experienced a quality breakthrough so it was time to let them out now.

"Miss Gu, I've never left this place at all because I could not bear to leave it. Now that you've arrived, I will most certainly hand the Medicine Manor over to you. You only need to give me some food. I don't mind even if I'm no longer the housekeeper."

Housekeeper Zhang laughed bitterly and sighed as he replied.

She did not know why but as she stared at the old man's plain features, the image of the villagers from Wind Fall Village appeared in Gu Ruoyun's mind. Her eyes took on a hint of absent-mindedness. Shortly after, she returned to her senses and smiled faintly. "You would be more familiar when it comes to matters pertaining to Main City. Besides, you have been the housekeeper for such a long time. That's why I had asked you to continue being the housekeeper. However, since I've arrived, no one will cause trouble for the Medicine Manor from now on. You can rest assured."

Housekeeper Zhang's heart was deeply moved. He had initially thought that he would not be of much use anymore after the Northern Block Territory has changed hands. However, he never expected Gu Ruoyun to ask him to stay and continue working as the housekeeper.

How could he disappoint her trust in him?

"Since you've made your decision, Miss Gu, I won't argue. Even though I don't have much power, I have mingled around here for many years. No one else is better versed on the matters concerning the Northern Block Territory."

"Good." Gu Ruoyun smiled. "From now on, everything inside and outside the Medicine Manor shall be left to your care, Housekeeper Zhang. Zixie, let's head to our rooms."

Zixie glanced at the respectful-looking Housekeeper Zhang before he followed Gu Ruoyun to the room without another word.

"Little girl, do you wish to subdue the whole of Northern Block Territory or build your own organization?"

In the room, Zixie minded his own business by first pouring a cup of tea. His lowered and hoarse voice carried a sense of wickedness as he asked his question.

Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders and laughed gently. However, she did not reply to his question. Instead, she unleashed Wei Yiyi and the others who had been in the midst of cultivation within Xiao Hei. Of course, the Vermillion Bird immediately protested wildly so Gu Ruoyun had thrown her out of the Ancient Divine Pagoda as well.

"Finally, I get the chance to appear!" said the Vermillion Bird as she looked absolutely delighted. However, when she sensed the crowd in the room, her smile froze in place. "Master, isn't it a little too crowded here?" she whined woefully.

Gu Ruoyun's gaze moved from the Vermillion Bird's pouty little face towards Wei Yiyi. "Wei Yiyi, I'll leave you to manage the Medicine Manor for the time being. If anyone wants to see me, please inform them that I won't be receiving any guests."

Wei Yiyi was shocked. "What about the Jiang family and the Gu family?" she asked.

"I won't see them."

Gu Ruoyun smiled as a light flashed in her eyes.

While it was true that she would not receive the Master of the Jiang family in the Medicine Manor, she could still seek him out at the Jiang family's residence...

"The average citizen would not know about my journey to the Medicine Manor. However, those mid-tier forces must know it very well. I won't be seeing anyone personally. When the time comes, I will choose a date and summon all the leaders of the powerful forces in the Northern Block Territory! By then, I will subdue the whole of Northern Block Territory in one stroke."

Before that time comes, she will not reveal herself!

She knows that she will only be able to find the medicinal herbs that Yu'er needs at a faster pace when she has united the Northern Block Territory.

Wei Yiyi nodded before asking, "Master, may I ask if you've chosen a date?"

"In about half a month." Gu Ruoyun fell silent for a moment before she continued, "If I want the leaders of the other forces to rush to the Main City, even a Martial Supreme would need half a month's time at best. I'll give them half a month's time. You can now issue an anouncement that I will be holding a banquet in the Medicine Manor in half a month's time! Everyone who has reached the Martial Supreme rank must attend! Before that time comes, I won't be receiving anyone!"

Even if this was for Xia Linyu, subduing the Northern Block Territory was something that she absolutely had to do!


Wei Yiyi joined her fists, accepted the order and walked away.

The Vermillion Bird's large, quick-witted eyes darted back and forth before she exclaimed in a domineering voice, "Master, her powers are so weak that she can't possibly make those people surrender! Why don't I go with her? I guarantee that no one will dare to cause trouble for the Medicine Manor then."

What a joke!

Who is the Vermillion Bird? I'm a majestic Divine Beast! Those are merely a group of Martial Supreme humans. With me, the Vermillion Bird around, who would dare act with impudence?

Gu Ruoyun thought for a bit and found the Vermillion Bird's suggestion to be quite rational. She nodded and replied, "Alright, both you and Wei Yiyi will take care of this matter. I won't entertain anyone who visits the Medicine Manor!"
