In that very moment, he really looked like a demon. His silvery hair danced in the wind as his blood red robes fluttered. An unlimited amount of power gathered in his body before he charged at the black shadow, resulting in a loud bang...
A powerful force exploded from where Shiyun once was, creating a deep chasm which was so dark that no one could see the bottom. One could tell how much power was involved in this one attack. The black shadow had disappeared along with Shiyun and Leng Yanfeng...
Gu Ruoyun's heart tightened and she grabbed Qianbei Ye's hand tightly. Somehow, the warmth from the young girl's palm slowly brought Qianbei Ye back to his senses. He turned to Gu Ruoyun and said, "Xiao Yun, even I don't know what came over me. When I saw that man, I had a strong urge to kill him!"
Gu Ruoyun stared blankly. She had only seen a black shadow and was not able to make out the person's face yet Qianbei Ye had been able to see it...
Gu Shengxiao, who had remained silent from the beginning, now glanced at Qianbei Ye before his gaze landed on Gu Ruoyun. He clenched the large hands on the side of his body.
It would seem that the enemy that my little sister has encountered was exceptionally powerful, thought Gu Shengxiao. I must grow stronger to protect her safety.
Perhaps it's time for me to return to the Spirit Sect. This man may lack discipline towards my sister, but at least with him by her side, he can ensure her safety. As for me, I have to enter that place to cultivate for my powers to increase with great speed.
The Master of the Spirit Sect had mentioned this before but because it would be difficult to leave that place upon entering, I was worried about my little sister. So I did not agree to it then...
In this case, I can now relax and enter into cultivation.
Unbeknownst to everyone, Gu Shengxiao's gentle gaze slowly filled with resolve as it fixed itself upon the young girl in green before him.
Yun'er, wait for me he thought. Wait for the day when I've grown strong enough to protect you and I'll return to you...
Gu Ruoyun turned her gaze to the man's determined and strong features before slowly walking to his side, "What do you plan on doing next? Will you be following me to the Dongfang Family home or will you be returning to the Spirit Sect?"
"Yun'er," Gu Shengxiao softened his gaze as his lips curled upwards and his large hand lovingly stroked the young girl's head, "Wait three years for me. Three years at most and I will return to you! By then, I will ensure that all matters will be settled."
Three years would be enough time for him to emerge from that secluded place and for him to take control of the entire Spirit Sect...
"Then when will you be leaving?" Gu Ruoyun raised her head to look at the man as she asked.
Of course, she knew her brother's reasons for entering the Spirit Sect. It was all for the sake of gaining more power so that he could protect her. On this mainland, the most powerful were the lands of the Three Great Authorities.
Hence, at the thought, a sense of warmth began to trickle through Gu Ruoyun's heart.
Gu Shengxiao paused in silence, then replied, "Tomorrow."
His eyes never left the form of the young girl in front of him. It was almost as if he was trying to carve her image into his mind's eye.
After all, who knows when they will meet again after going their separate ways this time...
Gu Ruoyun said nothing more. She turned to the remaining members of the Weapon Refining Sect behind her and spoke with an exceptionally bleak voice, "From now on, there's no longer a need for the existence of the Weapon Refining Sect. Master Xia, I'll leave the rest to the Xia family. The Azure Dragon will help you out."
After hearing that Xia Linyu was not in Shiyun's hands, Master Xia finally allowed his heart to sigh in relief. Then, when he heard Gu Ruoyun's words, he smiled, "Little girl, this time I'm in great gratitude to you. If it weren't for you, my Xia Family would have been in imminent peril."
