Gu Ruoyun said nothing else. She gently stroked her chin and fell silent.
It seems that I will need to speed up on improving my powers.
My powers on the West Spirit Mainland could be considered extremely formidable but this is the East Peak Mainland. Not only am I being watched by that man who calls himself 'this Holy One', I'll have to factor in Godfather's powerful enemy as well...
So, my powers are still not strong enough.
It was nightfall and the moonlit sky was silent.
As the spiritual beast egg has been taken away by someone else, the other organizations began to make their way out. Soon, only the Red Lotus Territory members still remained in the snowy forest.
Inside her tent, Gu Ruoyun was staring at Zixie who was standing in front of her. She then asked him a question with a smile that did not reach her eyes, "How is it that I'm unaware that you've become such a glutton?"
Xiao Zixie rolled his eyes and replied, "This spiritual beast egg had originally belonged to me."
"Belongs to you?" Gu Ruoyun felt suspicious, "Could it be that you've had a little phoenix with another female phoenix? Why would you then eat your own child?"
Hearing this, Xiao Zixie's little face flushed red with anger and he pouted with rage, "I had placed the egg there before I had met you. That thing stores my power and it's not just an ordinary spiritual beast egg. I'm only taking back my power. I certainly never had any babies with a female phoenix. However, if you're willing, we can make a baby."
Gu Ruoyun's face was instantly covered with black lines, "I'm not interested in spiritual beasts. However, you said that that spiritual beast egg stores you power. Why had you done so?"
"This..." Xiao Zixie's eyes darted back and forth before he smiled impishly, "There's no need for you to bother about that. Besides, I've retrieved the power which rightly belongs to me but I'll need some time to fully digest this. Before the time comes, I'll need you to help me."
"I need the feather of the Vermillion Bird! Find the Vermillion Bird and get one feather for me. That feather can help me fuse with my power and my power level will then increase! At least, it wouldn't be any worse than your cheap Father."
Gu Ruoyun fell silent before speaking again, "Since that's the case, let's be on our way now."
"You're not going to stay with that cheap Father of yours?"
"There's no need. I'll leave him a letter and we can set off to find the Vermillion Bird. It's also about time for me to exact my revenge on the Xia family! Once this has been done, I'll go to Red Lotus Territory to see my godfather again."
Gu Ruoyun raised her head towards Xiao Zixie as she spoke.
Xiao Zixie nodded, "Alright, let's go right now. Once I've fused with this power, I'll be able to help your cheap Father in his revenge at the very least! Even though I won't be able to reach adulthood just yet."
After the two had finished their discussion, Gu Ruoyun immediate found a brush and paper. She wrote her letter and used the cover of night to her advantage, slipping away in the dark.
When the next day arrived and the members of the Red Lotus went to summon Gu Ruoyun, all they found was an empty tent and a piece of paper sitting quietly on the floor under a rock. The members of the Red Lotus wasted no time and handed the paper to the man in red.
The man in red took a deep breath and sighed, "Since she has other matters to attend to, leave her be. We'll look for the Mysterious Cloud Fruit first then send someone to find her whereabouts."
As he spoke, the space between his brows showed signs of anxiety. However, when he remembered Gu Ruoyun's display of power, his heart relaxed.
This little girl's powers are formidable and she has many trump cards. I'm certain that she'll blend right into this mainland like a fish in the sea. Perhaps in the not too distant future, I'll be able to hear news of her even if I'm in the Red Lotus Territory...
Perhaps the man in red himself did not know that he had predicted the future in that sense and that day would come so quickly...
