Gu Ruoyun went deep into thought when she recalled that place.
"I had once promised the fire spiritual beast that I would help restore his fire spiritual beast clan to freedom. That fire spiritual beast clan is currently under Wind Valley's control. Hence, I will run into the members of Wind Valley sooner or later!"
This was a promise which she had once made!
The fire beast, who was now residing in the Ancient Divine Pagoda, did not expect Gu Ruoyun to remember this matter and his heart was deeply touched. If she could truly help to restore the fire beast clan to freedom, he would give everything he has to protect her from that moment on!
Qianbei Ye smiled and pulled Gu Ruoyun into his embrace. However, when he turned to the direction where the members of the Charm Sect had departed, a murderous intent flashed through his blood-red eyes.
If the Charm Sect wishes to offend them, he does not mind having the entire Charm Sect disappear from the First City...
"What did you say?"
In the Lin family's great hall, an old man who was seated upright on a chair rose to his feet immediately. His elderly face was gloomy and horrifying as he spoke in a cold and icy manner, "You say that Grand Lord Hong Lian's daughter, Gu Ruoyun, has arrived in the First City?"
"Reporting to the Master, the Lin family members have indeed seen Gu Ruoyun enter the First City. She has even started a dispute with the members of the Charm Sect."
The old man burst into laughter. His cackling laugh echoed throughout the entire Lin family residence. "Gu Ruoyun, you've asked for this! If you had remained in the secular world, perhaps I wouldn't have much of a choice about you. Yet, you've come to the First City so I won't let you leave this place alive! Guards, bring this little girl back. With her in our grasp, I'd like to see what that brat Grand Lord Hong Lian could possibly do to us."
The old man's chest was spitting fire as he said these words. One could imagine the scale of his hatred towards Grand Lord Hong Lian!
After all, it was all because of Grand Lord Hong Lian that he has become the greatest laughing stock in the First City and the secular world! During all these years, despite after sending out countless subordinates, they were unable to slice that damned brat to pieces! Furthermore, he has even been able to progress in his cultivation to this degree...
Each time the old man thought of this, he would feel a piercing pain in his chest. He took a deep breath and the space between his eyes filled with gloom.
The guards joined their fists upon hearing the old man's order and took their leave.
The First City, when compared to the vast mainland, was its own little world.
Powerful cultivators have always come into the First City in large numbers. Only the great Martial Saints who were considered to be the best of the best amongst the cultivators of the mainland have the right to enter this little world. However, it was very obvious that the spiritual energy within the First City was particularly abundant. It was thicker and more plentiful by many times. This was also the reason behind the First City's cultivators' rapid speed in growth.
"Yun'er, you are now a Martial Saint so I should explain the divisions beyond the Martial Saint rank to you now." Qianbei Ye's gaze landed upon Gu Ruoyun's delicate features and his blood-red eyes filled with gentleness. "The Martial Saint rank is not the peak rank for cultivators. After the Martial Saint rank, there are the states of exceptional, refined, ninth transformation, and full circle. Every state is also divided into early stage, mid-stage and late stage. Your rank is currently only at early stage Martial Saint."
Gu Ruoyun nodded then turned towards the peerless man by her side, "Xiao Ye, what is the extent of your power then?"
Qianbei Ye smiled, "Previously, after we had parted ways, I happened to have had a stroke of luck. My power is now at the refined state."

Once someone has broken through to the Martial Saint rank, the difficulty in their cultivation will increase exponentially. Even in the First City, reaching the state of the ninth transformation was limited to those who were at the peak of existence.
Mid-ranked powers such as Wind Valley only need one refined state Martial Saint to keep watch.
Gu Ruoyun hummed as her gaze suddenly pierced through the crowd in front of her. She noticed a figure in the middle of the crowd and was completely shocked.
"What's he doing there?"
A young man was standing with his hands on his hips in the middle of the crowd as he glared fiercely at a group of people in front of him. He bellowed angrily, "You better get out of the way before I treat you with discourtesy!"
"Haha, you would dare to treat us with discourtesy?" Another young man who was the leader of the group burst into laughter. A murderous intent then flashed in the corner of his eyes. "Hurry up and hand over the medicinal herbs you've collected. Otherwise, I will let you experience the meaning of a fate worse than death!"
"Do you think that I scare easily?" The young man laughed with disdain. His entire face was filled with arrogance as he replied, "You bunch of uglies, get out of my way! You're all just standing here and hindering my eyesight."
"Damned kid, if you won't do this the easy way, we shall do this the hard way!"
A gloomy light flashed across the second young man's eyes. He then waved his hand fiercely and exclaimed icily, "Since you refuse to hand over the medicinal herbs, the rest of you, I want you to slaughter this kid! Let's see if he still dares to act tough!"
"Yes, Eldest Sir."
Upon hearing this, the group of people who were dressed in black charged towards the young man.
The young man hugged the lingzhi-shaped medicinal herbs against his chest. His black eyes glared fiercely at them while he stumbled back continuously.
It had been so difficult for him to obtain these medicinal herbs. Bodyguard Gu would love them very much for sure. He certainly was not going to give them to these people!
His body accidentally bumped into a tree and a droplet of sweat rolled down the young man's forehead. He no longer has any room to back away now and the arm hugging the lingzhi clutched the herbs a little tighter.
"Damned kid, are you really gonna be that stubborn?"
The second young man narrowed his eyes and glared at the first young man icily.
The cornered young man scoffed and said nothing more. The look on his face fully described everything he wishes to say. He would never hand over the medicinal herbs no matter what.
"Fine! Don't blame us for being vicious and merciless. All of you, attack! Kill him!"
The second young man issued his final order and a cruel smile formed on the corner of his lips. It was as if he could already picture the other man lying on a pool of blood.
Just as the group closed in on the handsome young man, a clear and cold voice chimed in from behind them, "Who are you guys trying to kill?"
That voice fell into the young man's ears as if they have been separated by a few centuries.
It rooted his slender body involuntarily to the ground. He raised his gaze in disbelief before his excited and shocked eyes landed upon the woman in green. In that moment, his heart trembled.
"Who are you? Are you trying to meddle in other people's business?" The second young man eyed the two people approaching him but paid no heed to them.
Gu Ruoyun smiled but her smile did not reach her eyes which were covered in an icy chill.
"I don't want to meddle but, rather unluckily for you, this fellow is an old friend of mine. Therefore, I have no choice but to meddle."
I think I know who this is~~ Qianbae Yeah is not going to like him. :3
