The altercation had attracted the attention of quite a number of people. When they heard how the Grand Lord Hong Lian had addressed Gu Ruoyun, they could not help but stare at her. Their hearts were curious as to where this daughter of the Grand Lord had come from.
After all these years, they had never heard him mention that he had a daughter!
Also, no one actually knows the Grand Lord Hong Lian's real name nor did they know where he had come from. All they know was that this man had appeared out of thin air over ten years ago and in a few short months, he had committed acts which had stunned countless people. It was because of this that the Grand Lord Hong Lian's name soon resonated through the entire mainland.
During her past life, Gu Ruoyun had once heard of Grand Lord Hong Lian and he was already at a rank that she yearned to be at that time. Now that she has met him, she realized that this man was enigmatic and unpredictable.
His entire being was a mystery which no one could solve.
Yu Xinglong fiercely straightened his robes and swept his venomous gaze towards the man in red. He was filled with an absolutely malicious aura but he said nothing else and turned around, heading towards the opposite direction.
The man in red smiled icily and soon retracted his gaze. He turned towards Gu Ruoyun and his handsome face lit up with a warm smile.
"Little girl, you don't need to bother about that old fart's words. One day, I will kill him!"
Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders. She never had any intention of taking Yu Xinglong's words to heart. She had only just turned around when a familiar-looking figure suddenly appeared before her eyes, causing her expression to freeze in place.
The man's golden robes fluttered under the gentle breeze.
He seemed to notice her eyes on him and he turned to look at Gu Ruoyun. His gorgeous golden eyes flashed with uncertainty but that expression left as quickly as it came.
If the man in red next to Gu Ruoyun was a domineering and aggressive overlord, this man would be a great, grave and stern sovereign. His entire body was decked in a dazzling shade of gold and his gilded robes looked utterly resplendent under the sun.
"Little girl, are you acquainted with him?"
The man in red noticed where Gu Ruoyun was looking and he frowned as he asked.
Weren't we more than acquaintances?
In my past life, our friendship went deeper than that! Unfortunately, he can't possibly recognize me now.
Gu Ruoyun smiled at the thought and replied, "He's Supreme Jin, someone who had earned the title of Martial Supreme at a young age. Who wouldn't know who he is? However, I'm not all that close to him."
The man in red raised an eyebrow. He did not know why but he felt that there was something in the way Gu Ruoyun had looked at Supreme Jin. Nevertheless, everyone has their own secrets so he made no attempt to get to the heart of the matter.
"Little girl, let's go. I'd like to see the thing hidden in this snow forest which had attracted the attention of so many powerful cultivators." He stared into the far-off sky, his thoughts a mystery from others.
Gu Ruoyun nodded. As she followed the man into the snow forest, she turned around to take one last look at Supreme Jin.
So what if I told him about my identity in my past life? Would this man even believe me? Perhaps he would think that I was insane.
Forget it. Right now, the most important thing in this forest is that spiritual beast egg. Now is not the time to get reacquainted with Supreme Jin...
Gu Ruoyun turned away at the thought of this and no longer spared him another look.
