At this moment, Gu Ruoyun's face was completely covered with blood while her robes were torn and tattered. Her originally pure, delicate and beautiful features were hidden under the grime. Such a desolate appearance would certainly look ugly in any other person's eyes.
"Get out of my way!"
Gu Ruoyun furrowed her brows and replied coldly.
"Stupid girl, I dare you to say that again!" The middle-aged man was enraged and the scars on his face cast a terrifyingly sinister look on him, "Men, catch this woman! I haven't had a woman in a very long time. Her looks simply won't do but at least I can eat her to my heart's content and satisfy my cravings thoroughly."
"You've got it, Boss."
Hearing this, the group of men behind him stepped forward and charged towards Gu Ruoyun.
"I asked you all to get out of my way!"
A powerful energy burst from the young girl's body and sent the group of men high into the sky. The middle-aged man was dumbstruck and stared puzzledly at the youthful face before him.
"You... You, what are you thinking of doing? I'm warning you, my little sister is the concubine of the Wolf's Fang Robbers's right-hand man. If you kill me, he won't let you get away!"
As Gu Ruoyun's eyes turned towards him, the middle-aged man finally felt afraid and his face drained of color.
"Is that so?"
Gu Ruoyun laughed coldly, "I had thought of letting you go but since that's the case, there's no logic for me to let you live."
A gust of wind shot from Gu Ruoyun's palm and pierced through the middle-aged man's chest. The man widened his eyes as if he could not believe that this woman would still kill him even after hearing him mention the Wolf's Fang Robbers.
His body fell heavily onto the ground. His pale face was filled with utter disbelief as if he had never expected that this woman, whom he had only wanted to play with, would bring such disaster upon his life!
Gu Ruoyun coughed and spat out a mouthful of blood. She then slowly raised her head and spoke, "The ten deadly trials have definitely caused great harm to my body and even my pills cannot heal some of these wounds. I must find a place to rest and recover first before figuring out what to do next."
Right now, she has to get out of the forest first...
"I've finally managed to shake off those b*stards."
Within the thicket, Ye Nuo glanced behind him to see that there were no longer any shadows trailing him. A glint flashed across his bright, starry eyes. His fair, youthful and doll-like features were filled with excitement, like an adorable little powder puff.
"Those hateful little ghosts would only ever listen to that old fart, stalking me day and night. I had received my freedom with great difficulty and I'm certainly not about to let those guys control me. It's a good thing that they're a little stupid. All I need to do is to hatch a plan and I'll be able to get rid of them for good."
Ye Nuo placed his hands on his hips and felt an urge to burst into laughter. However, before he could let his emotions run free, he noticed a figure stumbling in the distance. The figure finally reached him and he saw that she looked absolutely exhausted before she fell to the ground with a crash.
Ye Nuo jumped in fright and blinked his brilliantly shining eyes. He cautiously gave the girl on the ground a slight push.
He rolled the girl over to her side and jumped backward in horror at the sight of her bloodied face. After a long pause, he finally gathered the courage to walk towards the girl.
"Hey, are you alright?"
Ye Nuo scrunched his face up. He really wanted to throw this girl aside and leave but he simply couldn't stand aside while someone is in peril. So, even if he wanted to leave, he forced himself to stay by her side.
