"Then I'll give you a choice as well. Would you die, or serve me?"
The man laughed as if he'd just heard a hilarious joke, "Human, you certainly enjoy indulging in fantasies. You want me to yield to a puny human? This would trample all over my dignity!"
"Oh? Is that so?" Gu Ruoyun raised her eyebrow, "Are you not wounded now?"
"So what if I am?"
The man sneered and thought, does this human really think that she can control me using her own abilities? Despite the fact that I'm heavily wounded, there's no way she can make me yield.
"It's true, I can't do it," Gu Ruoyun smiled, "But someone else, can! Zixie, Baobao, White Tiger, show yourselves! Today, I want to see if he will choose death or servitude!"
Instantly, Baobao and the White Tiger, who were both inside the Phoenix Cauldron, appeared in front of Gu Ruoyun. Upon sensing their Martial King rank powers, the man displayed a cold smile filled with disdain. So she thinks that two mere Martial King spiritual beasts can control me? What a joke!
But then, when he saw a man in purple robes appear out of thin air, his arrogance quickly disappeared.
The man's dark reddish-purple robes fluttered softly in the night breeze. Zixie raised his devastatingly handsome face, his demonic and cold gaze fell upon the man. In that moment, his body began to emit a strong aura and his purple robes danced wildly. It was a mesmerizing sight.
"You're all bullies!"
The man nearly went mad with rage and began to regret being taken away by the woman. He had a feeling that this time, these people will never let him get away.
Could it be that I've escaped the tiger's den only to fall into a pack of wolves? He thought.
"So how about it?" Gu Ruoyun rubbed her chin and smiled, "Do you choose to serve me, or... Shall I have you stripped and thrown into the market, for all to see?"
Perhaps she was imagining him undressed in a scene where a group of people was staring at his naked body. The man was shaken and stared back at Gu Ruoyun, absolutely terrified.
"You're completely sinister!"
This is a disgrace! He thought. I've never seen such a shameless person.
"No, no, no," Gu Ruoyun shook her head, "I've already given you the chance to make a choice. So it's considered fair treatment. What do you think? Unless you have some sort of weird fetish and would actually enjoy the attention. If that's the case, I can certainly grant your wish. You never know, I might even earn a great profit. Zixie, have the finances in the Hundred Herb Hall been running low of late?"
The man quickly clutched his chest, I'd rather die than expose my nakedness in front of a crowd!
His eyes darted back and forth for awhile until the man fiercely gritted his teeth, "You're already using such a powerful man to force me into it. What else can I do? Servitude it is, then. It's no big deal. That's certainly far better than exposing myself in front of a crowd."
Most important of all, he was only giving in for the time being anyway. Once he has returned to his full strength, he would be the one to strip this evil woman naked and use her to vent his frustrations.
Come morning light, Heaven Mountain no longer held the dangers of the night. All was calm and bright.
Along the ravine, the group whispered into each other's ears. Who knows what they were debating about. At that moment, Xia Linyu, who was standing in a corner saw Gu Ruoyun. His young and naive face lit up with a smile. He kept his sword and approached her.
But upon noticing the fiery red creature lying on her shoulder, he paused in his steps. A sense of astonishment appeared in his eyes.
"Big sister, you've made a contract with the Fire Cloud Beast?"
His question attracted a lot of attention. Everyone turned their heads to look at the woman and beast...
