The reason why she had dared to do such a thing was because she had already made some inquiries.
The Divine Trials will start soon and during this period of time, the Immortal Realm's cultivators would be far too busy with their preparations to have the time to come bother her. That was why she had dared to do such a thing.
It would take a few months for the Divine Trials to end. By then, her powers should have grown stronger and she, as well as the Azure Dragon and the rest, would certainly be a greater match for those Martial Emperors from the Immortal Realm.
"You idiot girl, you simply won't be satisfied unless you stir up a fire in public." Master Dongfang glared fiercely at her and spoke with a hint of annoyance, "Your great-uncle has just declared to have you participate in the Divine Trials. I know that you have no interest in this but you only need to participate and draw the attention of two out of the Three Great Authorities and the Immortal Realm would not be able to deal with you."
"I'm not interested."
Gu Ruoyun pouted and rejected him without a moment's hesitation.
Master Dongfang nearly went insane, this girl was clearly not giving him any face at all.
"Let me tell you this; this time, even if you don't want to participate, you still have to participate. I've already put your name in so you'll have to play it by ear."
"And if I were to refuse to participate?"
Gu Ruoyun narrowed her eyes slightly.
Honestly, she has no interest in the war with the demons. The fate of the entire mainland had absolutely nothing to do with her. She only wished to open up a place for the people she loves to live in peace.
Master Dongfang was so angered that his face turned ashen, his gaze darted around for a bit before he said, "Don't you want to enter the Spirit Sect? I've heard that Shengxiao's situation was growing perilous. Many elders have refused to comply with him and were secretly making false charges against him. Are you not going to help him?"
Now, Master Dongfang was placing a gamble on how much Gu Ruoyun actually cared for Gu Shengxiao.
Obviously, he made the right gamble!
Suddenly, Gu Ruoyun remembered the man from the Spirit Sect who had helped the Ling family plot against her three years ago!
Someone from the Spirit Sect had wanted to capture her and use her as a means to threaten her big brother. That proves the unfavorable situation of her big brother in the Spirit Sect.
And the only way she could help her big brother was by entering the Spirit Sect!
A wave of cold aura flashed across Gu Ruoyun's eyes, "Put my name in for me, I'll participate in the Divine Trials."
Master Dongfang heaved a sigh of relief. The only way to prevent the Immortal Realm from laying their hands on her was to send her to the Spirit Sect so he had no choice but to use Gu Shengxiao as a means to convince her.
Ever since her parents' died, the girl's brother, whom she had also relied on, was the biggest berserk button of her life.
"Oh right, when do the Divine Trials begin?"
"In three days time."
Gu Ruoyun frowned, "Alright, I understand. I'll set off in three days."
Master Dongfang still had something more to say but swallowed his words in the end. He left with a heart filled with all sorts of concern.
Fine wisps of hair danced in the night breeze.
The beautiful moonlight poured down from the heavens, falling on the young girl's green robes.
"Xiao Ye, aren't you supposed to be in your room? Why are you here?"
Gu Ruoyun's voice was as light as a fresh breeze as it fluttered in the night air.
The silver-haired man had appeared from behind a tree. His blood-red robes were like a demon's and looked even more enchanting under the moonlight.
"Xiao Yun," The man slowly walked towards Gu Ruoyun and placed both hands firmly on her shoulders. His peerless features were resolute and serious, "I don't know why but I'm feeling very uncomfortable. Can you not go to the Divine Trials?"
Gu Ruoyun stared blankly for a moment then smiled lightly, "Xiao Ye, he's my older brother who had always shielded me. For my sake, he did not hesitate to oppose the people from the Immortal Realm. In times of calamity, all he could think of was my safety. He even concealed his identity to protect me. How could I leave him alone and not care about him? Besides, I have a feeling that if I participate in the Divine Trials, I might be able to find Yu'er."
