Gu Ruoyun smiled coldly and disdainfully, "What? You failed in your scheme to frame me so you're now randomly accusing me of crimes to give your Weapon Refining Sect the right to kill me? If you wanted to kill me so much then by all means, go ahead and try! Why should there a need for so many reasons? You're even finding excuses for your own greed!"
"Gu Ruoyun, are you still trying to shove false arguments down our throats?" Shiyun's smile slowly disappeared and she scoffed coldly, "I received this information after years of investigation. For the sake of peace and safety on the mainland, I will not let you off today no matter what! Furthermore, you've killed so many people. You've long carried a great sin, if you aren't killed today, many more innocent lives will die by your hand in the future. I cannot bear it. Hence, I must exterminate you!"
Shiyun pierced through the void again, the cold light from her silver sword flashed across Gu Ruoyun's face.
Gu Ruoyun's mind stirred, she narrowly dodged the strike and slammed her hand at Shiyun's chest.
Shiyun reacted at the same time, blocking Gu Ruoyun's sudden attack.
The earth quaked and the mountains shook as both palms clashed. Gu Ruoyun quickly jabbed her sword into the ground to stabilize her posture. She clutched her numbed hand and raised her head towards Shiyun. Her cold eyes were focused entirely on the woman in white.
"Gu Ruoyun, your powers were lacking. You're no match for me! Besides, you don't have to search for Little Master Xia anymore. The Xia Family will belong to the Weapon Refining Sect sooner or later. As for the Little Master Xia, he's long been imprisoned by my Weapon Refining Sect. Take my advice, cease your resistance obediently and admit that this spiritual weapon truly belonged to my Weapon Refining Sect. Or else you will never see him again."
At this moment, a sound rang from within Gu Ruoyun's soul, causing her initially clear and cold eyes to slowly turn blood-red. She glared fiercely at Shiyun's faintly smiling face.
As the voice had come from Gu Ruoyun's soul, only she could hear it.
"What did you say?"
Gu Ruoyun slowly rose as a cold light covered her delicate and pretty face.
"If you have harmed a single hair on Yu'er's head, not even the entire Weapon Refining Sect's death would be enough to pay this debt!"
Shiyun looked astonished and innocent as if she was ignorant of Gu Ruoyun's meaning.
Every bit of aura burst from within Gu Ruoyun's body. She slowly closed her eyes as all kinds of memories from her past life flashed across her mind in slow motion.
"Yu'er, I once swore that I will not allow any harm to come to you in this life."
"If anyone dared to touch you, I will make their entire clan accompany you in death!"
Then, she opened her eyes and a glare filled with a murderous intent shot towards Shiyun. She spoke slowly, "Shiyun, your biggest mistake was using Yu'er as a means to threaten me! You say that the Weapon Refining Sect has captured Yu'er so... I will kill every single one of you and bring him home!"
