Tsk tsk, this little girl really is a true genius.
She's even stronger than her parents!
The Honorable Sir Lingshang scoffed as a cold light flashed in his eyes, "I wonder when the Spirit Sect has ever opened our doors to outsiders. It seems that anyone can come in these days."
Hearing this, the Honorable Sir Tianqi chuckled and stepped out from the crowd, placing himself in front of Gu Ruoyun.
"Hehe, this little girl is not just anyone. She's Gu Shengxiao's little sister. I'm surprised that you're not aware of this, Honorable Sir Lingshang?"
The Honorable Sir Lingshang's eyes were turning gloomier by the minute. He clenched his fist so hard that it shook.
It's this old man again! Sooner or later, I'm going to have to kill him!
"What? She's Eldest Senior Brother's little sister?"
"Such a young Martial Honor, this young lady's talents are near on par with Eldest Senior Brother's."
"It's no wonder she's here. The Spirit Sect does allow relatives to visit so it's really nothing out of the ordinary for her to be here."
The rest of the disciples began to discuss fervently under their breaths.
The main cause of fascination was that, amongst the younger the disciples, Gu Ruoyun has already broken through to the rank of a Martial Honor at around the age of twenty. This was enough to garner respect from everyone.
Hearing the Honorable Sir Tianqi's explanation, a glint flashed in the Sect Master's eyes. However, he remained silent and examined Gu Ruoyun.
"Even if she is Gu Shengxiao's sister, she has sabotaged my disciple's pill refinement process upon arrival. What kind of evil intentions does she have?" As he saw that the position of the number one elder was now further from his grasp, the murderous intent in the Honorable Sir Lingshang's heart ran deeper and deeper, "If she does not provide me with an explanation today, I don't care whose sister she is. I won't let her leave!"
Hearing this, the rest of the disciples began whispering amongst one another.
The Honorable Sir Lingshang's anger isn't completely unfounded. Kun Nan has reached this stage with such difficulty yet his chances were destroyed in an instant. Anyone would be mad at that.
"This..." The Honorable Sir Tianqi hesitated, he turned towards Gu Ruoyun and asked, "Little girl, what's gotten into you?"
This little girl certainly knows how to invite trouble. Since Kun Nan was going to fail, then let him fail. Why had she needed to sabotage his pill refinement process?
To the extent that now, this pair of master and disciple has an opportunity to extort.
"If he wants to die, don't drag me down with him." Gu Ruoyun smiled icily, "Adding a Berserk Fruit into a Martial Spirit Pill, I really don't where he had found that conclusion! A pill like the Martial Spirit Pill is already quite volatile. By combining it with a Berserk Fruit, does he wish to detonate the entire Spirit Sect? I have no wish to die just yet. If he's still feeling overly depressed, it's best that he finds a secluded spot with no one else around."
"What did you say?"
The Honorable Sir Lingshang's anger began to rise and he retorted with a vicious look in his eyes, "Kun Nan has made sufficient preparations for the sake of this pill formula and his refinement was absolute perfection. If it had not been for your sabotage, he would have successfully created a pill."
Gu Ruoyun laughed and her face filled with ridicule, "From what I could tell, he wasn't refining pills, he was cooking stew! He didn't even clean off the impurities from the herbs before placing them into the cauldron. If this isn't stew, then what is it?"
Hearing this, the Honorable Sir Lingshang burst into laughter. It was a laughter mixed with malice. "So, does this mean that you know how to refine pills?"
"I'm not very well versed but at least I'm competent." Gu Ruoyun smiled calmly and replied humbly.
However, her humility was interpreted as arrogance in the eyes of the crowd.
After all, Kun Nan's pill refining demonstration was for all to witness.
During the past few days, every elder has been trying their hand in pill refinement and have all of them had failed. Some have already triggered an explosion in the cauldron during the initial stage of their research.
