"If it wasn't for the fact that the demons had attacked in waves, the battle might have ended even sooner! Perhaps she was waiting for their leader to show up."
"Kill! Let's kill the remaining demons and forever end any future disasters!"
After everyone had regained their senses, they waved their weapons and charged towards the demons' lair. Since the demon's leader has been killed, in order to prevent another leader from rising up, they must exterminate all of them. None will be spared!
Gu Shengxiao slowly turned around and stared at the woman's figure from far away. His cool, dark eyes sank.
Yun'er, how many more secrets are you keeping from me?
Why do I keep having this feeling that you've become another person?
In the tent.
Xiao Zixie cocked his head and stared at Gu Ruoyun who was packing her things, "Yun'er, why didn't you let me fight?"
Gu Ruoyun's fingers paused in the middle of packing and she turned around to look at the little boy's beautiful face. She raised an eyebrow and replied, "I wanted to test the might of the Ancient Divine Pagoda. You had once told me that when my powers are strong enough, I can control it completely and have it come out and fight for me! I wanted to see whether I could control it with my current level of power."
This was her true reason!
Now that she could control the powers of the Ancient Divine Pagoda, even if she meets with a Martial Supreme ranked enemy, she could kill them no matter how many of them had attacked her.
Xiao Zixie was just about to speak when the doorway to the tent suddenly opened. A tall and grim man appeared.
Gu Ruoyun was surprised and stared at the man in confusion.
"Yun'er," A complicated look flashed in Gu Shengxiao's eyes, "Are you leaving?"
Gu Ruoyun nodded, "Since the battle has ended, it's time for me to leave. This time, I'm heading to another mainland. Big Brother, please take care of yourself."
Gu Shengxiao stepped forward. His big and tall figure filled Gu Ruoyun's view. There was something he wished to say but in the end, he simply sighed.
"You... Stay sharp and take good care of yourself."
"Big Brother," Gu Ruoyun lifted her head and looked at the man's grim face, "There are some things that I can't tell you but I want you to know that I will no longer allow myself to be bullied by others. This is why I want to grow stronger, to become so strong that no one else can bully me ever again!"
Gu Shengxiao's body shook. He then lowered his head and looked at the woman before him with a complicated expression on his face.
He had always known!
Over those many years, how much abuse had she suffered under the thumb of the Gu family? Each time his attention lapsed, they would take the opportunity to bully her.
Because of this, it was understandable why she wants to grow stronger.
"I'm sorry, Yun'er, Big Brother was not capable enough to protect you." Gu Shengxiao pulled Gu Ruoyun into his arms and hugged her tightly. His large hand stroked her hair indulgently, "I know you're planning to go to the East Peak Mainland. With your current level of power, you're completely invincible on the West Spirit Mainland now. You go on ahead, I'll come for you later."
She has grown so strong because she no longer wanted to be abused by others.
However, no matter how powerful she becomes, she would always be his Little Sister!
His Little Sister who had once clung to him and needed his protection.
Gu Ruoyun smiled, "Once I deal with the Medicine Order, I'll head to the East Peak Mainland immediately after. Please help me, inform our maternal grandmother and grandfather! And... Please help me protect Yu'er."
