These two are my acquaintances. If this had purely been about those medicinal herbs, I would not have bothered to meddle! However, I can't leave them in the lurch! The destroyed medicinal herbs were only an excuse for me to step in.
"Miss, thank you for saving us."
Mo Shangfei released the Little Princess from his embrace and approached Gu Ruoyun. He joined his fists together and bowed, "I, Mo Shangfei, will return this debt one day."
Gu Ruoyun smiled calmly, "There's no need to thank me. Come to think of it, I have some connection to the Mo family."
She thought that the entire Mo family had been annihilated during that fateful year. She never expected that there would be a survivor. This means that her maternal grandfather was left with one bloodline and that no matter what, she had to protect this last remaining descendant.
Mo Shangfei was stunned and he stared in confusion at Gu Ruoyun.
"Miss, may I ask which member of the Mo family are you acquainted with?"
"Xia Ruoyun." Gu Ruoyun's eyes darkened slightly, "I was once acquainted with Xia Ruoyun of the Xia family. Perhaps it was because we have the same name despite our different surnames so we had got along very well at the time. She had also mentioned the both of you before as well."
Mo Shangfei's chest tightened instantly. He reached out to hold onto Gu Ruoyun's shoulder, even his breathing has changed.
"Miss, you knew my cousin?"
"Big Brother Mo," The Little Princess hurriedly stepped forward. She glanced at Mo Shangfei and said, "Don't get too excited, let's just ask her about Older Sister Ruoyun."
Gu Ruoyun smiled, the matter regarding her reincarnation was far too inconceivable. Hence, she had no way of explaining her actual identity. If she wanted to get close to these two, the best way was to pose as Xia Ruoyun's friend.
"This... I'm sorry."
Mo Shangfei realized that he had behaved too impulsively. He quickly took his hand off her shoulder and said apologetically, "I only wanted to get some information about my cousin and I became too excited. Miss, would you happen to know the truth behind my cousin's demise? Not too long ago, the Xia family discovered that the person who had caused my cousin's death was the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian. I don't know if this is true but my cousin was the daughter of the Xia family so their information must be true."
Gu Ruoyun was shaken. The Xia family is actually telling the public that my Master was the one behind my murder?
In my past life, only Supreme Jin and the Xia family knew that the Holy Doctor was my Master! Also, the person responsible for the Mo family's annihilation as well as my mother and my little brother's death is Xia Ming!
Now, he wants to frame my Master for this as well?
Gu Ruoyun laughed icily at the thought but she soon regained her calm. She looked at Mo Shangfei with eyes filled with surprise.
"Why do you believe that it was the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian who had killed your cousin? Wasn't the Holy Doctor her master? Why would he have wanted to harm her?"
At that time, she had her reasons for not disclosing her actual relationship with the Holy Doctor. The Xia family had only managed to find out about this after they had eavesdropped on her conversation with the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian. Thus, the rest of East Peak Mainland should never have found out about the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian's only disciple.
However, since her reincarnation, it no longer mattered if anyone else were to know about it now.
"What? Miss, what did you just say? The Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian was my cousin's Master?" Mo Shangfei's expression changed as he shook his head in disbelief, "That's impossible, how could this be? Xia Ming clearly said that he had made a thorough investigation and found out that the powerful cultivator whom my cousin had provoked was the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian. How could that guy possibly be her master?"
