To the people gathered there, Gu Xianglin’s grim expression made it hard to suspect the true motives behind his altruistic words. After all, he was different from Second Master Gu. No matter how greedy he got, there wouldn’t be a trace of it on his face.
Gu Ruoyun smiled; her clear pupils were full of ridicule: “Then shouldn’t I be thanking you for bearing all that danger in my place?”
Gu Xianglin raised his arrogant face: “Ruoyun, Hundred Herb Hall is keeping such a high profile now. Haven’t you thought of the danger they’ll be in? Hundred Herb Hall has remained safe for the past three years, but it doesn’t mean that no one will come to steal the pill formulas in the future! That’s because those powers have been preparing for some important matters these past three years, so they didn’t have the time to bother with your Hundred Herb Hall! Furthermore, the Beauty Rejuvenation Pills didn’t hold much attraction to them. However, this time, with the birth of the Longevity Pills, countless powers will surely come to fight for it. As someone within Hundred Herb Hall, it’s impossible for you to remain uninvolved!”
“Also…” Gu Xianglin paused for a moment before he sneered and said, “Our Cool Breeze Faction won’t let go of such a great opportunity! Ruoyun, did you think a tiny Hundred Herb Hall could compete with the Cool Breeze Faction? I’ve been trying to persuade you on account of the Gu blood in your veins. If it were some other person, I wouldn’t even be using words!”
It was clear that Gu Xianglin wasn’t intending to leave until he got the Longevity Pill formula today! They had to bring out both pill formulas by any possible means!
“You’re right. Our Hundred Herb Hall is no match for your Cool Breeze Faction.”
Everyone thought that Gu Ruoyun would rather die than give in, based on her temperament. They hadn’t expected that she would say something like that. The unexpected words made all of them stare blankly at the girl’s pretty face in astonishment.
At this moment, none of them realised that a trace of cunning flitted across her eyes when she lowered her gaze.
Following that, she slowly raised her head. Her bright and clear eyes carried some cowardice as she spoke weakly: “Actually, the pill formulas aren’t in Elder Yu’s hands. It was because I had these pill formulas when Elder Yu took me in back then. If you want the pill formulas, you only have to ask me for it. As they say, a wise man submits to circumstances. I don’t want to make an enemy out of your Cool Breeze Faction, so if you don’t trouble me anymore, I’ll give the pill formulas to you.”
This was within Gu Xianglin’s expectations.
He had thought a lot these past few days about why Hundred Herb Hall was so protective of the orphaned Gu Ruoyun, and why the haughty Ghost Doctor had become her disciple when Gu Ruoyun had never learned medicine.
It was clear that there was only one reason; that Gu Ruoyun had something that those two people treasured greatly.
The legendary pill formulas!
He really didn’t know how Gu Ruoyun had gotten such a windfall. She was lucky to have found the pill formulas. She even used them to control Elder Yu and the Ghost Doctor! Hundred Herb Hall’s pills must have been refined by the Ghost Doctor. Who else in this world could learn the art of refining pills so quickly other than her?
“Ruoyun, rest assured. Once I become the Faction Master of the Cool Breeze Faction, there’ll be benefits for you too.” Gu Xianglin smiled. He hadn’t thought that things would go so smoothly.
Who said that Gu Ruoyun had become tough? That was because she had Elder Yu and the Ghost Doctor to back her up. Once she had heard that there would be many people coming to snatch the pill formulas, she had immediately become scared. Wasn’t she obediently handing the pill formulas over now?
