It was not just the members of the Dongfang family, even the citizens of Dongfang City were scared out of their wits. Everyone locked their doors, deathly afraid that the spiritual beasts would enter their homes.
It felt like the end of the world!
At this very moment, everyone felt as if the world had descended into Armageddon.
There were such a great number of spiritual beasts that it looked like almost all the spiritual beasts on West Spirit Mainland has turned up.
"Little girl, was this your doing as well?" Master Dongfang has obviously received a great shock. His eyes hurriedly turned towards Gu Ruoyun as he asked nervously.
Gu Ruoyun shook her head, "No, I don't have the ability to gather all the spiritual beasts on West Spirit Mainland."
"What? If this wasn't your doing, then who?" The Master looked like he was in a panic as his elderly features turned very pale, "We're finished. Someone must have a score to settle with the Dongfang family and is going to use the spiritual beasts to trample us to the ground. There's so many of them, not even a high-level Martial Warrior can go up against them all."
Gu Shengxiao frowned and pulled Gu Ruoyun into his arms. His grim eyes glared vigilantly at the spiritual beasts charging towards them as he released the powerful aura within him. His aura erupted into a torrential hurricane which caused his black robes to dance wildly in the winds.
"Gu Ruoyun!" Rong Xin's expression had turned into an extremely ugly shade as she glared fiercely at the woman's serene features.
I can't understand this, how could this woman still be so calm in a situation like this?
Does she not feel fear at all?
"Speak! Have you provoked someone who should not have been provoked and dragged all of us innocents down with you?" Rong Xin's entire face was burning with rage, "We had come here to congratulate Madam Dongfang, not to die! If you want to die, go die on your own. There's no need to drag us down with you!"
Instantly, all eyes turned to face Gu Ruoyun.
Those who already hold a grudge against the Dongfang family would never let such an opportunity slip by as they all began to criticize, "I knew that the Dongfang family would not live in harmony for long! Especially since this Gu Ruoyun seems to love stirring up trouble, hasn't she provoked enough enemies? Someone clearly hates her to the bone and now they want to drench Madam Dongfang's birthday celebration with blood."
"That's right. If I had known about this, I would never have attended this bullsh*t birthday celebration! I'm about to throw my own life away here!"
"Master Dongfang, we still have some other matters to attend to so we'll be leaving now. You can take care of these spiritual beasts yourselves. This has nothing to do with us."
A group of people made a move to leave as they spoke.
However, they clearly did not have the chance to leave now. Numerous spiritual beasts have surrounded the entire Dongfang City from the skies to the ground. They were clustered together in large groups but the spiritual beasts stopped advancing once they reached the Dongfang family home. The spiritual beasts eyed the people before them like a tiger watching its prey.
Just as the crowd began to fill with hopelessness, a crimson light enveloped the skies. The flaming ray of light shone so brightly that it seemed to illuminate the entire mainland.
A great fire dragon charged past the spiritual beasts and appeared before all of them. Its body burned with raging flames, making it look as if its entire body had been constructed from living fire. It let out a fearsome roar and the sky shone with a bright and beautiful shade of blood red.
When her eyes fell upon the person standing on the fire dragon, Gu Ruoyun's lucid yet elegant face turned astonished.
The man's silvery hair danced in the night wind as the light from the flames set off a mesmerizing glow against his blood-red robes.
