Chapter 1082: Main City, Four Great Families (6)

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

A flash of red robes like a splendid and moving flame sped towards the mountain's summit.

The man then stood on top of the mountain with his hands held behind his back while his eyes stared at a patch of sky not too far away. His red robes could not conceal the eerie murderous intent on the man's face. The spiritual beasts around the entire mountain range did not even dare to breathe due to the sight of it. They were like little dogs as they crawled on the ground, afraid that they would provoke the demon.

"My King, the rest and I have followed your orders and launched an assault on the Lin family. May I ask if you have any other orders?"

A Tercel descended from the sky. It landed behind Qianbei Ye before turning into a middle-aged man. He knelt respectfully with one knee on the ground as he spoke.

Aside from respect, most of the look in his gaze towards Qianbei Ye was full of sincerity and reverence.

This man was a symbol of faith to all spiritual beasts!

According to the older generation in the Clan, some who have lived for over ten thousand years, if it had not been for this man, spiritual beasts would have been destroyed by the hands of mankind ten thousand years ago! It was this man who had saved the Beast Clan and decided to present the Beast Clan as a gift to a woman! However, later on, this peerless man had vanished. Even the seniors of the clan have not seen him since!

The life expectancy of spiritual beasts was far longer compared to humans. However, they would still endure birth, aging, illness, and death. When the seniors of the Clan were beginning to think that he would no longer appear, the man arrived before the Beast Clan once again not too long after!

Upon his appearance, he gave them one responsibility — to cause trouble for the Lin family!

Was this not an easy feat for the long-established Beast Clan?

"I am not your King."

The man in red robes did not turn around but continued to stare at a distance. He then spoke in a cold and distant voice, "You only have one Master. When she appears, you will pledge your loyalty to her. This is an order!"

"But, my King..." The Tercel was shocked. He then spoke reluctantly, "I'm afraid that the seniors of the Clan would not agree. We want to serve you alone wholeheartedly."


Just as the Tercel had spoken, he suddenly felt a great, eerie glare upon him. He could not help but shiver.

"Remember, she is your Master. If you ever dare to show her any form of disrespect..."

A wave of murderous intent burst from the man's body.

"I had saved the Beast Clan in the past so similarly, I can destroy all of you right now! I had saved you only for the sake of helping her find aid. Now, if you aren't willing to pledge your loyalty to her, what use do I have for you then?"

Regardless of the great forces which he had built, everything that he had done had been for her alone, now and forever!

Because, sooner or later, he would give the people in his hands to her.

If these powers were of no use to her, they would be useless to him as well. Why not destroy them then!

The Tercel's heart shuddered. He then anxiously lowered his head and said, "Your wish is my command."

Qianbei Ye turned away and his eyes stared at the azure skies once again.

At that moment, his body no longer emitted a murderous aura. It was now replaced by a gentleness which the Tercel had never seen before.

"Yun'er, now that these spiritual beasts are causing trouble, I believe that the Lin family would not be in any frame of mind to cause trouble for you. It's about time that I come look for you."

The Main City, at the Jiang family residence.

Gu Ruoyun paused in her steps outside the gate. She then stared at the imposing Jiang family courtyard and raised her brows before stepping into the residence.

However, before she could step into the threshold, she was promptly stopped by two guards in front of the gate.

"Stop, this is the Jiang family residence. Please present your visitation invite!"

"Visitation invite?"

Gu Ruoyun shivered and said, "Report to Old Man Jiang and tell him that Gu Nianye is here for a visit."

Gu Nianye?

Both guards at the gate looked at each other. In the end, the guard who had first spoken continued to speak, "Miss, there are many who want to see our Master. However, you must present a visitation invite. We will then send it to the Master in your stead. If the Master agrees to meet you, you will be allowed to enter. This is the Jiang family's rule."

Gu Ruoyun knitted her brows together. She never thought that the Jiang family would be so troublesome. However, as she had not come prepared with a visitation invite, she would not be able to enter the Jiang family for the time being.

"What's going on here?"

Just then, a kindly voice sounded from behind her.

Gu Ruoyun jumped when she heard this voice. She then turned around to find a kindly man walking towards her.

That man did not seem to expect to find Gu Ruoyun here. His expression turned sluggish before quickly returning to normal.

"Young Sir Wen."

The two guards clearly recognized the man who was as gentle as a piece of jade. They joined their fists, bowed respectfully and said, "This young lady is here to visit the Master. I was only asking her for her visitation invite."

Wen Yan!

Gu Ruoyun smiled calmly, she never thought that she would bump into him here!

"Isn't that a coincidence." Wen Yan smiled. "Miss Gu is maternal grandfather's old acquaintance. They had gone their separate ways in Cloudy Wind City just a few months ago. I never thought that I would meet you here again, Miss Gu. I haven't thanked you for eradicating the Snow Jade Bandits for Cloudy Wind City that day."

Gu Ruoyun shrugged. "I had been in a hurry that day. Taking care of the Snow Jade Bandits was just something which had happened along the way."

"Regardless of whether it was along the way, Miss Gu, you have helped us a great deal. Are you here to see my maternal grandfather?"

"That's right." Gu Ruoyun nodded. "Since I've arrived in Main City, I want to meet Old Man Jiang and reminiscing about the past no matter what. I don't know if Old Man Jiang is in the manor."

"If grandfather knows that you're here, he will definitely be very happy." Wen Yan's face displayed a small smile. His smile was like a ray of sunlight, giving one a wonderfully immersive and soothing feeling. "Let's go. I'll take you to see maternal grandfather."

As Wen Yan was now escorting her, the two guards did not stand in her way anymore. However, their eyes were filled with shock. They never thought that Gu Ruoyun would actually be acquainted with Old Man Jiang. After all, Old Man Jiang was never reasonable in the entire Jiang family. Perhaps only his biological grandson, Jiang Mozhu, and maternal grandson, Wen Yan were allowed to see him a little more often.

When did the typically unreasonable Old Man Jiang start to have such a good relationship with a little maiden?

Furthermore, based on what Young Sir Wen had just said, it seems that the relationship between the two was unlike the rest!

The two guards began to feel remorse at this thought. If they had known, they would have taken the opportunity earlier on to try to curry favor with her. Perhaps, when she meets the Master, she could put in a good word for them and they would not need to stand watch at the gate anymore.

An old, white-bearded man was seated in the middle of an unusual-looking courtyard. A chessboard was placed in front of him but he was playing the game alone.

In contrast to their meeting a few months ago, this old man has clearly aged by a large degree. He heard the sound of Wen Yan's footsteps but did not lift his head. He only spoke indifferently, "Yan'er, you're here?"

"Yes, I had rushed right over from Cloudy Wind City once I had received your letter. May I ask why you've summoned me back to the Jiang family residence, maternal grandfather?"

Wen Yan's voice was as kindly as ever. Hearing it was equivalent to basking in sunlight and it made one feel absolutely delighted.

"Oh, that's right. I've just bumped into a familiar face. I believe that you must really want to see her, maternal grandfather, so I made the decision to let her in."

Old Man Jiang laughed bitterly. The only person he really wanted to see now was Gu Ruoyun.

Sadly, that girl had lost her life in a sea of flames when she sacrificed herself to save him and Old Man Gu. There was no chance of survival for her at all! Therefore, no matter who Wen Yan had brought over, it would not make him happy.

However, just as Old Man Jiang was about to speak, a serene voice sounded from behind him, causing his elderly figure to tremble.

"Old Man Jiang, long time no see. You don't look so well."


One of the chess pieces in Old Man Jiang's hand dropped onto the chessboard. He raised his head unbelievingly as his gaze fell upon the flash of green robes next to Wen Yan. The expression in his eyes changed from shock, astonishment, before slowly turning into ecstatic. He then rose to his feet with a whoosh as his elderly voice trembled from overexcitement.

"Gu girl? It that really you?"

She didn't die?

How could this be? She had fallen into the sea of fire. How could she have survived?

Wen Yan felt dubious and his eyes darted back and forth between Old Man Jiang and Gu Ruoyun.

While he knows that his maternal grandfather would be delighted to see Gu Ruoyun, he never expected his maternal grandfather react so happily.

This was not logical at all!

Gu Ruoyun smiled gently as she said, "It's me."

"You..." Old Man Jiang's voice was incredulous. "You aren't dead?"

"I was lucky." Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders. "Aren't you happy to see that I've survived? Could it be that you want me to die in that sea of flames, Old Man Jiang?"

That sentence was full of jest but it also convinced Old Man Jiang to completely believe that reality!


Just as Wen Yan thought that the old man has returned back to normal, a bright and clear laugh erupted from Old Man Jiang.

His smile was excited and rang throughout the atmosphere in the Jiang family residence.

"Gu girl, you're really alive! Did you know that you had nearly scared me and Old Man Gu to death that day? Even my grandson had fallen into depression for an entire day when I told him the news. He has only recently begun to work hard in his cultivation."

After a long time, Old Man Jiang stopped laughing and sighed.

However, his face could not conceal his excitement.

If Gu Ruoyun had truly sacrificed herself for them, he and Old Man Gu will forever live in regret! Of course, most of it was sympathy! A peerless genius like her should not have fallen this way! As long as she lives on, one day, this mainland will belong to her.

"Maternal grandfather," Wen Yan asked as he stared at Old Man Jiang with foggy thoughts, "What on earth happened? What do you mean? What happened to Miss Gu?"

Old Man Jiang sighed heavily before explaining, "Previously, Old Man Gu and I had run into some danger during our search for a Divine Weapon. Initially, the Gu girl could have escaped. However, she had fallen into a sea of lava in order to save us. If it had not been for her, we would have been the ones who had lost our lives in the lava."

Wen Yan never thought that so many things would have happened prior to this. His eyes stared at Gu Ruoyun gratefully.

"Miss Gu, you've already saved my maternal grandfather once. I never thought that you'd end up saving him again. This is a sentiment that would be difficult for us to repay for the rest of our lives."

Gu Ruoyun smiled but did not say a word.

After all, her objective was not that simple. The whole of Northern Block Territory that was her real objective!

Just as Old Man Jiang was filled with excitement, a guard rushed right in. "The Master of the Gu family is here for a visit."

Hearing this, Old Man Jiang's face changed instantly!

He certainly never forgot how this old fellow had tried to snatch the Gu girl from him! If Old Man Gu finds out that the Gu girl is in his residence and tries to snatch her away, what should he do then? Besides, the Gu girl has returned from the dead so he obviously wants to reminiscence with her. How would he find the time to entertain that old man?

"I'm not seeing him, I'm not seeing him." Old Man Jiang waved his hand. Suddenly, he seemed to remember something and added, "Oh, that's right, tell Old man Gu that I've gone out to run some errands. I'll only be returning around half a month's time."

Once half a month has gone by, he will reveal the news of the Gu girl's survival to that old man!

During this period of time, he would certainly have the youngsters of the Jiang family establish a good relationship with the Gu girl.

Even though there were no males in the Gu family's third generation, if the Gu family actually manages to bend the Gu girl to the same gender, who shall he send his lamentations to then?

"Hahaha, you old fart. Who is only returning in half a month?"

Unfortunately, just as Old Man Jiang had spoken, a loud laugh rang out from outside the courtyard.

Old Man Jiang's face instantly blackened!

This old fellow had just barged right in! That's it, I'm finished. There's no time for me to hide the Gu girl now!

Indeed, when the flash of blue robes entered the courtyard, the old man instantly froze in place.

"You... Gu girl... You're alive?" Old Man Gu looked completely astonished as he stared at Gu Ruoyun in disbelief. His body trembled.

Both him and Old Man Jiang have been living in remorse for the past few months.

If they had not dragged the Gu girl to search for the Divine Weapon, perhaps she would not have had to sacrifice herself for their lives. The initially peaceful state of Main City would also not have been shattered due to Gu Ruoyun's demise! They had pushed all of their rage onto the Lan family. Hence, at this point in time, the Great Families were as incompatible as oil and water!

"Old Man Gu, how have you been these days?"

Gu Ruoyun smiled.

She has a fondness for Old Man Gu simply because he had chosen to stand with her and face Bai Yin's threats, 

Old Man Gu finally regained his senses and exclaimed excitedly, "Old Man Jiang and I thought you were dead, we didn't think that you would still be alive! This is too fantastic! Old Man Jiang and I have previously discussed this — that as a token of our gratitude, we would make the appropriate arrangements for your kin. We have already sent a letter to inform the Holy Doctor and the others and have detailed everything which has happened very clearly in our letter."


Gu Ruoyun was astonished. She never expected that the two old men would have informed her Master of her accident.

If Master finds out about this, the news would certainly reach my father's ears.

Gu Ruoyun knitted her brows at the thought as a hint of exasperation flashed across her forehead.

"Gu girl, what is it?" Old Man Gu could not comprehend Gu Ruoyun's reaction and asked in astonishment.

"Oh, it's nothing." Gu Ruoyun shook her head. "However, I'd advise you both to be prepared. Main City will not be at peace for very much longer."

If my father finds out that I was in danger, he would overturn the whole of Northern Block Territory.

Especially the Lan Family.

Not a single soul would be spared!

Otherwise, that overprotective father of mine would not be given the title of a madman. However, I must inform Lan Ge about this matter. Regardless, Lan Ge is still a member of the Lan family...
