Bai Yin took a deep breath before she crawled towards the man. At that moment, no one noticed the anger and unwillingness in her eyes as well as an indistinct murderous intent.
"Your wish is my command! Once I'm finished with this job, I will return to the Territory and accept my punishment."
The man in red said nothing. Similarly, he showed no sign of mercy.
If Gu Ruoyun's powers had not been so formidable, she would have ended up dead instead of the Snow Spirit Wolf.
Thus, he would never forgive Bai Yin!
"It's getting late now, let's all get some rest. One more thing, Yun Qing, Xue Kuang, I want you two to take care of the bodies. These will become our next meal."
"Yes, Grand Lord."
The two men addressed as Yun Qing and Xue Kuang stepped out and replied respectfully.
"Alright. Everyone else, go get some rest. At the same time, put Yun'er's tent next to mine."
The man in red took a last look at everyone else before entering his tent.
When everyone was going about their duties, Bai Yin took a deep breath and walked towards Gu Ruoyun. She lowered her eyelids and asked, "I had allowed you to leave so why won't you leave?"
Gu Ruoyun looked at Bai Yin and calmly replied, "I previously had agreed to leave not because you asked me to, but because I wanted to leave! No one in this entire world can order me to do anything."
"I don't care what you say, you had promised me to leave but you're still here! You've broken your promise." Bai Yin spoke with some measure of emotion and her pretty eyes glared angrily at Gu Ruoyun, "Besides, do you think that the Grand Lord is taking you in because he likes you? It's because you look too much like the Madam and he has asked you to stay because he yearns for the Madam too much. Otherwise, why would he take you in as his goddaughter? So, don't you start dreaming about flying above the branches and turning into a phoenix. In the Grand Lord's heart, you are only a shadow of the Madam. If you have any sense of tact, leave as soon as you can. You'll only hurt yourself in the end."
Bai Yin had purposely lowered her voice so no one else around could hear her words aside from Gu Ruoyun.
Gu Ruoyun did not speak. Regardless of whatever reason I previously had for leaving, I've already agreed to stay. This time, I may have gone back on my word but if I was to get another chance, I would still have made the same choice.
It's all because this man stirs a very close and familiar feeling in me, he makes my heart feel very warm.
"Are you done?" After a long pause, she lifted her head and stared at Bai Yin who was about to continue jabbering incessantly, "If you're done, I'm going to go and get some rest."
"Gu Ruoyun!" Bai Yin's eyes darkened and she spat icily, "Why would you degrade yourself and become the shadow of another? Are there no men on this earth anymore? Why must you cling to the Grand Lord? The Grand Lord is head-over-heels in love with the Madam, he will never hold you!"
I've been by his side for twenty whole years and I've never been able to enter that man's heart.
This woman, however, has only just appeared and she wants to take the Madam's place in the Grand Lord's heart? Dream on! Even with the fact that she looks like the Madam, this was impossible!
Gu Ruoyun slowly turned around. Her clear and cold eyes fell upon Bai Yin as she calmly raised the corners of her lips and said, "Since I've accepted him as my godfather, in my heart, he is like a father to me. Are you fighting for the justice of the Madam you've been talking about, or... For yourself?"
