Shock flashed across Gu Xianglin’s eyes before he recovered his senses. With an indifferent tone filled to the brim with his arrogance, he said: “Gu Ruoyun, I’m not going to quibble with you over what has happened in the past few years. As long as you kneel down and kowtow to Grandfather now, I’ll forget what you did on account of your youth.”
Upon hearing this, the seductive woman standing next to Gu Ruoyun couldn’t hold back her laughter. Her fox-like eyes seemed to steal away people’s hearts and souls, and her every action held unmatchable allure.
“What are you laughing at?”
Gu Xianglin’s frown tightened. Although this woman was beautiful, she wasn’t his type.
Especially since she dared to laugh at him in this kind of setting.
“I’m laughing because the young master of the Cool Breeze Faction is actually coercing a lone, weak woman right here. I really wonder why you sent her an invite. Was it because you genuinely wanted her to attend the banquet, or was it for the sake of threatening her?”
Wei Yiyi’s face was full of smiles, but her heart, on the other hand, was full of ice. This banquet was clearly like the Banquet at Hong Gate; they were out for Gu Ruoyun’s blood. However, if they thought they could deal with Shifu this way, then they were living with their heads in the clouds.
There was no way Shifu would have come to this Banquet at Hong Gate without a surefire plan.
Gu Xianglin’s eyes turned chilly: “Who are you? This is my Gu family’s territory. It’s not some place that just anyone can waltz into!”
“Hehe,” Wei Yiyi chuckled, her lips holding a faintly discernible smile, “Your Gu family didn’t mention that disciples weren’t allowed in with their masters. Gu Ruoyun is my shifu. It’s only proper that I follow her in.”
Everyone was stunned; they looked at Gu Ruoyun with surprise.
Following that, a mocking voice sounded, carrying a sneer: “Gu Ruoyun, I didn’t think that you would have started accepting disciples in these three years. You couldn’t possibly be teaching this woman the art of seduction, right? Actually, I see that might be possible. Although Elder Yu is rather advanced in age, he’s still the master of Hundred Herb Hall. You’re not losing out by following him, haha.”
Gnashing her teeth, Gu Panpan’s pretty face was full of jealousy and hatred. It was like Gu Ruoyun was her sworn enemy.
Wei Yiyi’s eyes darkened; a cold glint flashed across the depths of her pupils as she slowly raised her hand. Spiritual power began to condense in her palm. However, before she could put it to use, another hand reached out from beside her and caught it in a gentle grasp.
“Is this a banquet or a trial?” Gu Ruoyun’s smile was cold. Her clear pupils swept over the crowd in front of her as she said, “If you’re not going to welcome me as a guest, then I’ll take my leave.”
Having said so, she pulled Wei Yiyi along as she turned to leave.
However, how could the old man give up such a great opportunity to humiliate her? He shot a quick glare in Gu Panpan’s direction before turning back to Gu Ruoyun and saying: “It’s my grandson’s welcome feast today. All of you, don’t just stand there; let’s go in and have a seat.”
Since Old Man Gu had already spoken, Gu Panpan didn’t dare to say anything more. However, her hate-filled gaze toward Gu Ruoyun and Wei Yiyi belied her true feelings. It was as if these two women were so filthy that just looking at them had dirtied her eyes.
Within the banquet hall, the seats were arranged according to each person’s status. Thus, Gu Ruoyun and Wei Yiyi were relegated to an inconspicuous corner.
Although it was a corner, they could see the entire hall from their seats.
It was clear that the old man had done this on purpose, all in order to let Gu Ruoyun see the Gu family’s current position for herself.
“Great General, Young Master, the esteemed guest Heavenly Thunder Faction’s Elder Lei requests an audience.”
Suddenly, an announcement rang out from outside the banquet hall.
TL Note: The Banquet at Hong Gate was a real event that happened in the past~ TLDR; a banquet held to murder your guest. Read up more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feast_at_Hong_Gate
Elder Lei is literally ‘Elder Thunder’, I’m not sure if there’s a significance to them taking the name of their faction, but I’ll have to see in later chapters. 🙂
