Suddenly, a strong force erupted from within her body and swept like a wave of light through the ground. It destroyed the trees in the surrounding area and even the herbs planted by Lan Yuge were turned into ash by that strong force.
But this power did not stop, continuing a trend of rising continuously and ramming violently.
"Is she breaking through to become a Martial Emperor?"
Lan Yuge, who had been attracted by the sheer amount of power, stared in astonishment at Gu Ruoyun who was seated on the withered ground. She was so shocked that she was almost speechless, "If I'm looking at this correctly, when I first met this little girl, she seemed to have had just broken through to a high-level Martial King not too long ago. This talent is absolutely shocking. Now she has immediately jumped into the ranks of a Martial Emperor?"
What kind of genius is she, this is clearly perverse! She thought.
Actually, while she was in Heaven City, Gu Ruoyun had already used the holy spirit stone to reach the pinnacle of a high-level Martial King. She was only one small step away from breaking through to Martial Emperor. Otherwise, she would never have been able to continue breaking through in just one short month.
At the same time, the old man ignored all the shocked glances and ran straight out of the study. He stared in astonishment at the back mountain and his old face was completely flabbergasted.
"A low-level Martial Emperor! This little girl has actually broken through to the ranks of a Martial Emperor! Such talent, she has completely surpassed her parents! The funny thing was that the Gu family members had all considered her as a good-for-nothing all those years ago! On this mainland, where Martial Honors are few and far in between, a Martial Emperor can already operate as an independant cultivator! Even our Dongfang Family has only two Martial Emperors in our ranks while the Weapon Refining Sect has four."
Of course, previously there had only been three Martial Emperors. Shi Yun was considered as a dark horse who unwittingly broke through to the ranks of a Martial Emperor.
But Shi Yun was a few years older than Gu Ruoyun. So by the time Gu Ruoyun reaches her age, how could she possibly still remain as a low-level Martial Emperor?
Meanwhile, the whole of Heaven City was in a sensation.
"There's no mistake about that aura, it seems that the Dongfang family has gained another Martial Emperor."
"Could it be Young Master Dongfang? It looks like only Dongfang Shaoze alone could be at the brink of a breakthrough to a Martial Emperor in the Dongfang Family."
"Previous, the Master of the Dongfang family already relies on two mid-level Martial Emperors, now the Dongfang family has one more. Are the skies about to change? I reckon that aside from the Three Great Authorities, no other power can compare to the Dongfang family, not to mention the fallen Weapon Refining Sect."
The crowd chattered ceaselessly, most taking a fancy to the Dongfang Family.
Meanwhile, at the back mountains.
Just as Gu Ruoyun opened her eyes, she found herself in an embrace. The man's silver hair fluttered softly in the wind as his blood-red clothes dazzled under the light of the setting sun. His large hands were warm and strong as he held the young girl tightly his arms.
"Xiao Yun, congratulations, you've broken through again."
The man lowered his gaze and looked at the young girl in his arms. His red lips were slightly raised as he thought, this was the kind of woman that I like, always so outstanding.
Staring at the man and the woman on the ground, Lan Yuge found it difficult to regain her senses. She ignored her destroyed herbs as her beautiful face filled with shock, "Little girl, I want to ask you this. When did you have your breakthrough to a high-level Martial King?"
Gu Ruoyun rubbed her nose, "About a month ago, around the time before I made my way to the Dongfang family home."
Lan Yuge was astounded, to reach the ranks of a Martial Emperor from a high-level Martial King in one month, no one knows what this could mean. Who could possibly have the capability to reach that level in the span of only one month?
