Hence, the members had only been able to reach him now.
"What is it?" Grand Lord Hong Lian asked as he knitted his brows, clearly not happy with the person who had disturbed his interaction with Gu Ruoyun.
"Grand Lord, something has happened!"
An anxious voice cried out from the other end of the communication token.
Something has happened?
Grand Lord Hong Lian's brows furrowed even further as he replied icily, "Regardless of what has happened, it can be settled once I've returned to the Red Lotus Territory. Right now, I do not have the time to concern myself with matters surrounding the Red Lotus Territory."
To Grand Lord Hong Lian, nothing was more important than reuniting with his daughter.
"No, Grand Lord, it's not a matter concerning the Red Lotus Territory. Something has happened to the Eldest Lady!"
Something has happened to Yun'er?
Grand Lord Hong Lian was thoroughly shocked. He then stared curiously at Gu Ruoyun as his eyes filled with confusion.
Yun'er is clearly by my side, how could something have happened to her?
"What on earth do you mean?" Grand Lord Hong Lian calmed himself down and asked in a deep voice.
"Grand Lord, the Eldest Lady had run into some trouble in the Northern Block Territory a while ago. We heard that the members of the Lan family allied themselves with Bai Yin and caused the Eldest Lady, who was investigating a mountain cave, to fall into a sea of lava as she attempted to save others. Falling into a sea of flames pretty much guarantees death! Right now, this news has reached the general population. The Holy Doctor is already furiously rushing towards the Northern Block Territory to avenge the Eldest Lady! I've been trying to contact you over the past few days but I haven't been able to connect with you."
That voice was filled with anxiety and rang continuously in Grand Lord Hong Lian's ear.
An infinitely burning anger exploded from Grand Lord Hong Lian's body. His red robes were like flames as they danced in the wind. The man's initially grim eyes were now filled with a keen light while his handsome face was filled with anger.
Gu Ruoyun blinked suspiciously, unable to comprehend what had happened which would anger her father so immediately.
Grand Lord Hong Lian cut the voice in his head off. He then turned around outside the gate. A cold smile has begun to form on the corners of the man's lips and his expression was extremely maddened.
He was not able to hear anything else clearly.
All he had heard was that the Lan family of Main City had formed an alliance with Bai Yin and planned to harm his precious daughter!
Just as Grand Lord Hong Lian's anger was growing stronger and stronger, a bustling noise sounded from outside the gate. Grand Lord Hong Lian then saw the Great Elder leading everyone from the Lan family into the Medicine Manor, crowding the already small courtyard.
The Great Elder's eyes sparkled. Of course, he was not addressing Gu Ruoyun as 'Grand Lord'. Instead, his address was directed towards Grand Lord Hong Lian who was standing in front of Gu Ruoyun.
That was right!
This man was most certainly the Grand Lord Hong Lian! He had been fortunate enough to meet the man once so he had instantly recognized him.
"Who are you?" Grand Lord Hong Lian's dark eyes turned grim and sharp. It was as if a sharpened darkness has just landed in front of the Great Elder.
There was a fawning smile on the Great Elder's face as he said, "Grand Lord, have you forgotten me? We've met before. I am the Great Elder of the Lan family. This time, I've come to congratulate you on your breakthrough to the Martial Saint rank. Furthermore, Emissary Bai Yin, whom you've sent, has been in the Lan family's care. We have never treated Emissary Bai Yin unfairly."
The Great Elder did not seem to notice that when he mentioned the words 'Lan family', the man in red's features grew even fiercer. His grim and dark eyes were now flashing with murderous intent.
