The white-robed elder laughed in spite of his anger. He then put his hands behind his back and his eyes lost their initial warmth, they now held the light of a fiery rage.
"Little girl, I see that you are also a genius. If you were to serve the mainland, you would certainly win success, recognition, and be highly revered among the people of the mainland. Yet for the sake of your selfish needs, you would carelessly cast aside the mainland! From what I've heard, Xia Linyu has not even reached the rank of a Martial King. Hence, even if there were a hundred of him, he would still be no match for a Martial King of the Weapon Refining Sect!"
A strong aura erupted from Gu Ruoyun's body as her lips curled into a cold smile, "But, no matter how I look at it, even with the combined lives of the people of the mainland, it would not come close to his life."
"Haha! Little girl, you have such an evil nature at such a young age. If this were to continue, it would be disastrous for the mainland. As the patron saint of the mainland, we must destroy you before the disaster can arrive."
In that instant, the elders in the air released their collective coercion from their bodies, suppressing everyone in sight and rendering them breathless.
"Little Gu girl, these people are all Martial Emperors, especially the one who has just spoken, he...is a high-level Martial Emperor!"
Despite the Azure Dragon's great power, he was no match for so many Martial Emperors! Furthermore, thought Master Xia, I'm still wounded. Even facing a low-level Martial Emperor would be difficult for me...
Master Xia was deeply troubled at the thought. Perhaps, this time, the Xia Family was truly in danger.
Gu Ruoyun's expression turned serious. She knew that there's a vast difference in power between her abilities and those of her opponents. But if she were to let Shiyun go, Yu'er would remain in grave danger! She would only be able to ensure his safety when she is in her hands.
"Lord Bai, please save me."
Shiyun's malevolence returned from silence, as long as the people of the Immortal Realm are around, Gu Ruoyun will die, this was without a doubt!
The white-robed elder said nothing more. His indifferent gaze stared at Gu Ruoyun and he asked, "I'll ask you one last time, are you really going to kill everyone in the Weapon Refining Sect?"
Her answer was definite and it enraged the white-robed elder.
"Great, just great. Such impudence, even when faced with the people of the Immortal Realm, what audacity! Since that's the case, then I'll do as you wish!"
A gust of white wind flashed and the white-robed elder appeared in front of Gu Ruoyun.
His eyes were completely devoid of his initial warmth, they were now filled with arrogance and malevolence. He aimed his palm violently towards her chest.
Master Xia's expression had thoroughly changed. He no longer cared about his wounds and rushed towards Gu Ruoyun.
Unfortunately, they were both too far away, he could not save her from the white-robed elder in time...
Just as he was about to give up all hope, a grim black figure, as sharp as an eagle, swooped in. He held out his hand and collided with the white-robed elder's palm, pushing Master Xia out of the way.
Under the wild winds, dressed in black like an eagle of the night, the man's back was wide and steadfast. She didn't know why but Gu Ruoyun felt at peace.
It was the masked man she had once met back in Azure Dragon Country.
The man did not speak, his back faced Gu Ruoyun. His grim features were filled with murderous intent and underneath his black mask, he pursed his thin lips. His sharp, dark eyes stared coldly at the white-robed elder.
The white-robed elder stared back in astonishment at the man who had appeared out of thin air. It seemed as if he was reflecting on something. Suddenly, he noticed something else and a fiery rage slowly built up within his very being.
