"Big Brother Lu, that's not what I meant, I..."
"Enough!" Lu Shaochen's gaze darkened, "Murong Rou'er, don't think I don't know what you've done. Yan'er is my Junior Sister, I won't let anyone harm her!"
Murong Yan was shaken and she widened her big eyes in disappointment at Lu Shaochen.
So, I've always been nothing more than his Junior Sister, deep down in his heart...
His kindness towards me has all because of this.
At this moment, Murong Yan felt a searing pain in the depths of her heart like a needle piercing through her very being. It hurt so much that she sighed and her beautiful face was filled with disappointment.
However, at this moment, Lu Shaochen had his back to her and had not noticed her reaction at all...
"Senior Brother, I'm a little tired," Murong Yan forced a smile on her face and spoke to the man in front of her, "I'm going to rest now. I'll let you take care of these two."
Then, without waiting for Lu Shaochen's response, Murong Yan turned and walked out of the courtyard.
Lu Shaochen turned around to look at Murong Yan as anxiety flashed clearly in this eyes, "Yan'er, what's the matter? Why are you suddenly tired?"
As she watched the thoroughly anxious Lu Shaochen, a glint flashed across Gu Ruoyun's eyes and she laughed internally.
It would seem that this Lu Shaochen might have some feelings for his Junior Sister. He just hasn't realized it himself...
"Ye Nuo, let's go."
Gu Ruoyun yawned and did not say anything else. She turned towards the guest room and closed the door.
Ye Nuo touched his nose then followed Gu Ruoyun into the room as well...
It was nightfall and the light of the moon shone like clear water.
Gu Ruoyun was sitting cross-legged on her bed with her eyes closed. The light of the moon poured down from the heavens, casting a cool glow into the room.
Ye Nuo pouted and glanced at Gu Ruoyun. He sighed out of boredom then rose to his feet and walked out the door.
Ye Nuo, who had shut the door behind him, did not notice this but once he had left, the girl's body, which had been sitting on the bed, suddenly disappeared...
In the Ancient Divine Pagoda.
Standing in front of a cauldron, Gu Ruoyun looked flabbergasted. Her gaze slowly fell upon the handsome, demonic man before her as she asked, "Zixie, what is the meaning of this?"
Previously, whenever I've entered the Ancient Divine Pagoda, I would only enter as a spirit. Yet this time, even my physical body has followed as well...
"Due to my increase in power, you can now enter the Ancient Divine Pagoda — completely, "Zixie took one look at Gu Ruoyun and had obviously guessed what she was thinking. He smiled demonically, "Little girl, there is a sort of power in the Banished Lands. This power has been preventing me from leaving the Ancient Divine Pagoda. Fortunately, you can still enter. Additionally, my breakthrough in strength has allowed your physical body to enter the Ancient Divine Pagoda as well. So should you ever be faced with an enemy that you cannot defeat, you can escape through the Ancient Divine Pagoda."
Gu Ruoyun nodded gently, "Zixie, I want to see Xiao Ye."
Zixie was mildly startled before he nodded, "I've placed him in a room, you can go see him."
Nobody saw the quick flash of complex feelings in Zixie's eyes that left as quickly as it came.
But he did not stop Gu Ruoyun.
He would never stop her in doing whatever she wanted to do. He would only do everything he could to help her.
In the room.
The man lay quietly on a large, red bed. He looked as if he were asleep and was completely still and silent.
It's just like when we first met!
At this very moment, Gu Ruoyun was completely mesmerized by his current state. So much so that she was willing to remain intertwined with him for the rest of her life.
