Whenever she thought of what he had done for her in the past, Gu Ruoyun's heart would soften.
It goes without saying that in the initial stages of her breakthrough, Dongfang Shaoze has been a great help.
It was likely that at the time, Dongfang Shaoze had no idea that the frail and weak young girl would have transformed herself so quickly. In just a short span of six to seven years, she has grown to a point where even the Three Great Authorities had to be wary of her presence.
He was lucky enough to have noticed the light within her, back when she was still a weakling.
"By the way, Yun'er, a while ago I heard someone mentioning that a young man had come to see you."
"A young man?"
Gu Ruoyun frowned with a puzzled look in her eyes, "Did he mention his name?"
"No, he left once he learned that you were not around. According to the description from the guards, this young man had delicate and pretty features. His eyes were particularly clear and he wore green robes which looked similar to yours. He should be about sixteen to seventeen years of age."
Gu Ruoyun's heart clenched and her clear eyes were overcome with emotion.
Could it be... Was that young man Yu'er?
That's right, it must have been Yu'er!
It can't be anyone else but Yu'er!
Yu'er is still alive!
"Uncle, it seems that our maternal grandmother's birthday is just one month away."
A light flashed in Gu Ruoyun's eyes, "I'd like to ask you to send out invites to as many organizations as you can. Those organizations must be the best of the best in the mainland, including Three Great Authorities as well!"
Dongfang Shaoze nodded, "Two of the Three Great Authorities shouldn't be a problem but the Immortal Realm has a grudge against you. I'm afraid that they won't come."
Gu Ruoyun smiled, "They'll come."
Dongfang Shaoze's eyes flashed with surprise when he saw the resolve on her face but he did not comment on it. He smiled warmly, "Then I'll make the arrangements. You must be tired from your journey. Go get some rest. Your previous room is waiting for you."
Before he left, Dongfang Shaoze glanced at Qianbei Ye who was by Gu Ruoyun's side. However, from the very beginning, the man's eyes seemed to follow only Gu Ruoyun. No matter what anyone said, he did not seem to hear a thing.
It was as if nothing interested him except for matters concerning Gu Ruoyun.
Dongfang Shaoze smiled with delight. With a man like that by Yun'er's side, I can rest assured.
Just as Dongfang Shaoze made the announcement, the entire mainland dove into a hurricane of speculation.
Someone, somewhere, had spread the word that the maternal granddaughter of the Dongfang family, Gu Ruoyun, had reached the rank of a Martial Honor. What does being at the rank of a Martial Honor mean? It was the most powerful rank on this mainland! How had a twenty-year-old woman managed to achieve such a feat?
As such, many were skeptical at the news. Some flatly refused to believe it, considering it some sort of diversion from the Dongfang family.
Still, Qianbei Ye's massacre of the Immortal Realm cultivators during the Divine Trials was deeply etched in the minds of every single person. No one could forget it.
Regardless of whether they believed Gu Ruoyun's rise to the rank of a Martial Honor or not, many powerful cultivators rushed to attend the party due to Lan Yuge's influence in the mainland. Even the Spirit Sect of the Three Great Authorities stepped out and gave the Dongfang family a reply.
They would definitely send representatives on the day of Lan Yuge's birthday celebration!
When they saw that the Spirit Sect had made a decision, the Courts of Hell could not fall behind. Furthermore, Gu Ruoyun had once saved Elder Jiu and their Palace Lord. Hence, they did not hesitate to send their reply either.
