Gu Ruoyun gazed indifferently at the small animal and her voice was cold, "I've already dissolved your contract. You can leave now. From now on, you have your freedom. This was what you had hoped for after all."
Yan didn't respond. In all honesty, he was in deep regret. He regretted not having helped Gu Ruoyun. But how could he have known that Gu Ruoyun was actually connected to the Sovereign King? If he had known of this earlier, he would have given his life to help her.
"Master, I know I've done wrong. I hope that you can give me another chance. I promise that I'll change and I will use all my power to help you in the future."
At this moment, the little animal no longer held his initial smugness and arrogance. His red eye and green eye stared pitifully at Gu Ruoyun.
Gu Ruoyun smiled coldly, "That's true, I do need many strong cultivators by my side but I don't need disobedience! If you can't even help me in my time of need then what use would I have for you even if you were a god? I don't want to throw a tantrum at you, I no longer want to see you ever again."
Seeing Gu Ruoyun's nonchalance, Yan turned to face Qianbei Ye. He then bowed in accordance to the etiquette of the animal kingdom, "Respected Sovereign King, please forgive this subordinate of his delinquency. Your subordinate knows that he has done wrong and is willing to give his life to ensure her safety. There will be no trace of disloyalty."
Qianbei Ye did not reply and instead turned his gaze towards Gu Ruoyun, as if awaiting her decision.
"No need," Gu Ruoyun glanced at Yan and spoke emotionlessly, "He once disobeyed an order and refused to rescue those who were in mortal danger. I don't blame him but in the future, I will no longer be using him. Otherwise, whenever I ever fight with anyone else in the future, his attitude will only push us into an even more difficult situation. You should leave now. I don't ever want to see you again."
Hearing this, the little animal's eyes grew more anxious. That year, when the Sovereign King had saved them, the animal kingdom then fell under the command of the Sovereign King. If he was chased away, then he will be considered as a traitor to the animal kingdom and his presence would no longer be tolerated in the animal kingdom.
"Master, I swear with my life that I will never make the same mistake again. It's true, I wasn't willing to obey you in the beginning because you had used the help of the Phoenix's power to force me into a contract. I have always been proud and arrogant, I would never willingly bow to human coercion! That's why I did not listen to your orders, Master. But now, I'm willing to serve you and if you don't believe me, you can make a bond of slavery contract with me. As a slave, I cannot rebel against your orders."
The bond of slavery contract is the most unfair form of contract. If a slave disobeys his master, he would be punished in the flames of hell. Neither alive nor dead, neither dead nor destroyed. He will suffer endlessly in hell.
Hence, Gu Ruoyun has never formed a bond of slavery contract with any spiritual beast. This was how she had respected them.
But upon hearing Yan's suggestion, Gu Ruoyun grew silent. Actually, with the bond of slavery contract, Yan would never be able to oppose her orders. Even if she wanted him to die, he would have to obey her.
"Are you sure that you want to form a bond of slavery contract?" Gu Ruoyun swept her calm gaze onto Yan and spoke in an even tone.
Yan quickly nodded his head, "I am sure."
Gu Ruoyun stared at Yan, "Then I'll give you one last chance! I will form a bond of slavery contract with you! In the future, if you ever behave as heinously as you once did, then you will stay in the fiery pits of hell for thousands of years."
