A violent storm twisted towards them from far away. It landed with a loud crash and sent tremors throughout the arena. It took a long time before the rumblings settled down.
Before everyone else could recompose themselves from their shock, a loud bang was heard and a lightning-fast attack came zipping towards Gu Ruoyun. In that instant, a murderous wind enveloped the entire arena, horrifying the entire crowd.
A voice spat out through gritted teeth. It was filled with intense hatred, "You go to hell!!!"
Two fists clashed and a powerful wave of energy erupted from both parties. It destroyed the stage of the arena and caused its wooden planks to crack and fly into the air.
This was an unfamiliar face to Gu Ruoyun but the hatred in the young woman's eyes was apparent. She looked as if Gu Ruoyun had murdered her entire family.
"Have we met?"
Gu Ruoyun lightly cocked an eyebrow.
She didn't know why but the aura from the young woman felt oddly familiar. However, she simply could not recall the identity of the girl.
"Hehe," the young woman in white sniggered. Her smile was cold and eerie as her hair fluttered in the wild winds. Her face was devoid of emotion but her eyes held great hatred, "You've insulted the Medicine Order so I must kill you!"
Just as she spoke, the woman in white turned into a white flash and reappeared behind Gu Ruoyun.
She moved too quickly. It was impossible to detect her movements with the naked eye.
Gu Ruoyun turned around in the nick of time — just as the woman was about to wave her sword, and swiftly drew her own spiritual weapon which countered the blade of the woman in white's sword. In that instant, brilliant flames erupted from the clash and she stumbled a few steps back.
Bai Xiangtian's eyes widened in shock as he stared at the longsword in Gu Ruoyun's hand. A greedy glint flashed across his eyes.
"A spiritual weapon!"
This woman, Gu Ruoyun, actually has a spiritual weapon in her possession! He thought.
"Bai Xiangtian, don't you start eyeing this girl. She is also one of mine," the Honorable Sir Tianqi sneered as his gaze fell upon the woman in white in front of Gu Ruoyun. "Something is not right with that woman's aura. It looks like she has used something to forcibly raise her abilities to the rank of a high-level Martial Emperor."
Bai Xiangtian scoffed as cold light flashed across his elderly face.
However, he did not say much and only stared darkly at the arena...
"Who on earth are you!"
Gu Ruoyun wiped the blood from the corner of her lips as she fixed her eyes upon the woman in white. She asked coldly, "You're definitely not a member of the Medicine Order."
The woman in white curled her lips into a smile and her eyes thick with gloom, "Gu Ruoyun, no one can save you today! You will die, without a doubt!"
Boom, boom, boom!
Wave after wave of attacks swiftly flew towards Gu Ruoyun, layered thick with hatred and bloodlust.
It was as if she would never rest until her opponent was dead!
"Who is this woman? Wasn't Rongyue the greatest genius of the Medicine Order? When did this peerless genius appear in their ranks?"
"Besides, this woman is far too powerful. A high-level Martial Emperor... Tsk tsk, at such a young age. I'm afraid not even Zuo Shangchen would be able to defeat her, right?"
"The Medicine Order's secret weapon is certainly great. I suspect this woman is someone whom they've trained in secret so the world knew nothing of her existence..."
Hearing the voices of praise from the crowd, Xueyi snobbishly raised her chin with a complacent look on her face.
"Hehe, how could the insignificant Dongfang family be a match for the Medicine Order's secret weapon? This one is a genius who has far surpassed everyone else in the Medicine Order! She is the number one cultivator amongst the younger generation of the mainland. And most importantly, she's now only sixteen years of age, much younger than Gu Ruoyun! Forget about the present, no one in history could ever be more powerful than her! Only she is worthy of the title 'peerless genius'! Those wenches, Gu Tian and Dongfang Yu... What were they? When compared to her, they're nothing but pieces of trash!"
