"Hehe, I'm afraid that you don't have a chance."
Suddenly, a cold voice sounded from the skies like a sudden clap of thunder and struck striking into everyone's hearts.
In that instant, countless figures suddenly appeared from thin air; each and every one of them was dressed in white and carried the bearing of an immortal. The space between their brows held a sharp sense of righteousness.
"Bai Xiangtian, is this the person who've told us about, Gu Ruoyun?"
One of the elders in white asked as he turned to face the person next to him while he glared at Gu Ruoyun coldly.
That person was Bai Xiangtian, an elder from the Immortal Realm who had also made an appearance in the Divine Trials. At this moment, his elderly face was filled with a cold light as he stared arrogantly down at the young girl in the desert.
"That's right, she's Gu Ruoyun." Bai Xiangtian scoffed coldly, "Gu Ruoyun, I'll ask you one more time, will you join the Immortal Realm?"
Gu Ruoyun smiled disdainfully, "And what if I refuse?"
Bai Xiangtian laughed wildly. His laughter was thick with murderous intent, "So be it. What a stubborn little girl! Let me tell you, you now have only two options; the first option is for you to join the Immortal Realm, the second option is for you to die! The Spirit Sect already has Gu Shengxiao, I will never give them the opportunity to obtain another genius!"
Just as he spoke, someone giggled softly behind Gu Ruoyun.
Lounging in a palanquin, carried by a gaggle of gorgeous maidservants, the man curled his lips coquettishly. His peach blossom-like features were filled with a disdainful smile. His eyes were rife with disdain as he said, "So, this is how the great Immortal Realm works. You would destroy everything that you cannot have? Tsk, tsk. You've certainly opened my eyes."
Bai Xiangtian's eyes turned as cold as ice. He replied frostily, "The same goes for you! If neither of you joins the Immortal Realm today, don't even think about leaving this place! Especially you, Gu Ruoyun. For such a vicious and violent girl like you, you're like a savage. Only when you join the Immortal Realm will you be able to change your ways! The Immortal Realm is doing this for your own good yet you don't know a good thing when you see it!"
Gu Ruoyun fell silent. The elders before her were all at the rank of Martial Honor. Honestly speaking, she wasn't sure if she could take on so many powerful cultivators at once. Furthermore, there are so many of the Dongfang family members that need her protection.
But she refuses to pledge allegiance to the Immortal Realm, no matter what!
"Gu Ruoyun, your heart is filled with vicious poison. You would even murder a person so cruelly in the arena. A person like you should be punished with a thousand deaths. However, the Immortal Realm has always been benevolent and charitable. We couldn't bear the sight of your current state which is the reason why we're giving you a chance to turn over a new leaf!"
An elder of the Immortal Realm who stood next to Bai Xiangtian already knew about Gu Ruoyun. He knitted his brows disapprovingly and nagged in an icy manner.
"That's right. Gu Ruoyun, repent and be absolved of your crimes. Forsake your evil ways and do good. Only when you join the Immortal Realm can you have the chance to start with a clean slate! Based on your previous conduct, you aren't even fit to be considered human, you're closer to the level of a domestic animal!"
"An animal like you, who did not even spare her own biological grandfather, does not have a single shred of humanity. I reckon that only the Immortal Realm would give you such an opportunity. So I hope you appreciate the opportunity and not let it slip through your fingers. As for that spiritual weapon and the Martial Emperor spiritual beast, hand them over to the Immortal Realm for our safekeeping! Otherwise, these things will fall into the hands of others sooner or later. If those people are as narrow-hearted as you, wouldn't it bring a great disaster upon the mainland?"
