In an instant, Zuo Shangchen’s face darkened. This girl, was she actually cursing him?
Suddenly, he smiled. It seemed like ten miles of peach blossoms had suddenly bloomed, it was a magnificent sight.
“I suddenly feel like dying isn’t so painful, if I can get Xiao Yun’er’s protection.”
At that moment, Shopkeeper Zhao, who had been watching this man taking liberties with his Eldest Miss, but hesitated to take action, hurriedly tried to wrap up the conversation: “Eldest Miss, there’s one more thing I have to report. The second young master of the Gu family, Gu Xianglin, has returned. The Gu family is going to hold a welcome feast for him, and they sent you an invitation. Does Eldest Miss intend on attending?”
Zuo Shangchen glared fiercely at Shopkeeper Zhao, with a resentful expression. He was clearly unhappy about the interruption.
“I’ll go!” Gu Ruoyun sneered, “Why wouldn’t I go? Shopkeeper Zhao, notify Wei Yiyi. She’ll be going with me.”
“Yes, Eldest Miss.”
Shopkeeper Zhao respectfully made a cupped fist salute before slowly retreating.
Seeing that the old fellow had finally left, Zuo Shangchen wanted to say something more, but was cut off by Gu Ruoyun.
“Fourth Prince, I’m going to go cultivate. If you have nothing to do, then go back.”
Zuo Shangchen shrugged and smiled: “If you’re going to cultivate, then I’m not going to disturb you. Oh, right, Gu Shengxiao came out of closed door cultivation a month ago. I told him about everything that has happened to you.”
Suddenly, Gu Ruoyun stopped walking: “You mean, Brother’s coming back?”
“I’m not sure,” Zuo Shangchen shook his head, “I told him that you’re fine for now, and that I’ll be staying here temporarily. He’s unable to leave the Spirit Sect right now. If he leaves, someone’s going to take the chance to make a mess that he won’t be able to clean up afterwards.”
Although Zuo Shangchen couldn’t see Gu Ruoyun’s expression, he could feel the disappointment that flashed through her heart.
How many years had it been since Gu Shengxiao had left? That was the number of years that she hadn’t seen her only family in this world. However, Gu Shengxiao had to gain more power in order to protect his beloved little sister, and avenge his parents’ deaths…
Perhaps it was only Zuo Shangchen who understood the longing Gu Shengxiao had for her all these years. The set of clothes that Gu Ruoyun had sewn for him back then was his treasure. In the past, someone had accidentally torn them when fighting with him. Gu Shengxiao had flown into a terrible rage and torn that person into shreds with his bare hands.
Later on, to prevent the clothes from getting damaged further, he changed out of them and switched to carrying them on him at all times instead. Whenever he missed her, he would take them out. The reason he had been able to live all these years through all the danger he had faced was Gu Ruoyun.
He was afraid that if he died, his sister would suffer from solitude and harassment.
“I understand,” Gu Ruoyun smiled, turning her head towards Zuo Shangchen, “Help me send a letter to my brother. Tell him that I’m doing well here. He doesn’t need to come look for me. When I have grown strong enough, I’ll be the one to go find him.”
After she finished speaking, she didn’t tarry any longer. She turned and walked to her room, slowly closing the door and cutting off Zuo Shangchen’s gaze…
In this period of time, General Gu’s household was bustling with activity.
Almost everyone in Azure Dragon Country knew that the second young master Gu Xianglin had become the Cool Breeze Faction’s young master. Thus, those who had previously looked down on the Gu family could no longer act arrogantly. They fought to be the first to flatter the Gu family.
Old Man Gu was extremely proud. Ever since the Plum Faction had sent out their announcement three years ago, the Gu family had never been lively until now. And all this was thanks to that outstanding grandson of his.
