Gu Ruoyun was a little astonished. Even though there were organisations stronger than the royal family in Azure Dragon Country, letting those organisations decide who the position of crown prince would go to was unheard of to her.
What kind of place was this mysterious Heaven City like?
“Could you continue explaining the situation in Heaven City to me?” Gu Ruoyun asked excitedly.
“Sure,” Zuo Shangchen’s eyes held a hint of a smile: “The city lord, the Xia family, controls the entire Heaven City. Supposedly, their young master has been extremely weak and sick since he was young. It was assumed that he wouldn’t live past 15 years old. However, just a few months ago, that young master suddenly got better and his cultivation increased by leaps and bounds. His situation is rather similar to yours.”
As he finished speaking, Zuo Shangchen’s pupils narrowed as he cast a measuring gaze towards the girl before him.
Based on Qingyi’s information, Gu Ruoyun had also been a cowardly weak good-for-nothing, but that had changed after her near-death experience…
“That young master from the Xia family, what’s his name?” Gu Ruoyun’s heart skipped a beat against her will. She took a deep breath and asked.
It was as if a thunderbolt had struck Gu Ruoyun’s heart. Her whole body started trembling. She hurriedly covered her face with her hands as tears slowly leaked through the cracks between her fingers.
Was it him? Could it be him?
Could he still be living in this world?
In her previous life, she would have given her life to protect him. In the end, his limbs had been torn off in front of her as he died miserably. What level of heartrending pain was that?
The only regret she had after her previous life, was being unable to protect the ones precious to her!
“Ruoyun, what happened to you?” Luo Yin asked, confused as she stared at Gu Ruoyun.
From what she could remember, Gu Ruoyun had never left Azure Dragon Country. How would she know the young master of Black Turtle Country’s Xia family? Why was she so agitated after hearing Xia Linyu’s name?
Luo Yin’s voice brought Gu Ruoyun back to her senses. It was only now that she realised that everyone was staring at her with peculiar gazes. She hurriedly wiped away her tears and gently smiled as she spoke.
Zuo Shangchen wrinkled his brows slightly. He looked at Gu Ruoyun as if he were thinking of something. After a long moment, he finally said: “Xiao Yun’er, Heaven City is cut off from the outside world. No one is allowed to enter unless they have the token of Heaven City’s city lord.”
Gu Ruoyun inclined her head and smiled in gratitude.
She was grateful to Zuo Shangchen for telling all this to her. She had to make a trip to Heaven City, regardless of whether the Xia family’s young master was Yu’er or not.
“If you want to show your gratitude, then come hug me.”
Zuo Shangchen languidly opened his arms, waiting for the girl to fly into them.
However, Zuo Shangchen’s words made Susu stomp her foot unhappily: “Chen-gege!”
Chen-gege had always disliked people touching him. However, right now, he actually wanted to hug another woman.
This made her feel bitter in her heart. The gaze she shot towards Gu Ruoyun was full of enmity.
At this moment, the first pill had already been auctioned away. No matter how much money Ba Zhentian had, he couldn’t match up to the fortunes belonging to the boss of Heaven City’s largest medicine hall. Thus, the auction ended at the bid of 3 million gold coins.
Of course, since it was just the first round, many people weren’t willing to show their hands yet. There were four more pills anyway, why spend so much in the competition at the start?
It was because the crowd had these kinds of thoughts that they would regret giving up on the first round. In the end, that was the lowest price for the entire auction.
“Alright, we’ll start the second round now! This time, our starting bid is 3 million gold coins!”
The crowd suddenly burst into an uproar. The starting bid for this round was the final bid of the previous round?
