At this moment, Mo Shangfei suddenly remembered something.
His cousin had once mentioned to him that there were two people that she admired the most in this world.
One was the Grand Lord of Red Lotus Territory, the other... Was the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian!
Since that was the case, why would my cousin have provoked him?
Gu Ruoyun smiled calmly as she saw Mo Shangfei's shifting expression.
She knew that Mo Shangfei trusts the Xia family very much so she could not reveal outright that it was the Xia family who had murdered her. She could only gradually make Mo Shangfei's suspicions grow! Clearly, he has now developed a little bit of doubt towards the Xia family.
"Little Princess, I'd like to return to the Xia family home."
Mo Shangfei turned towards the Little Princess and looked at her remorsefully, "I need to find out the truth and avenge my dead relatives! I need to know if it was really Bai Zhongtian who had killed my cousin. If not, why had the Xia family framed him? Please forgive me, I can't leave with you now. I will find a safe place for you and you can wait for me there, alright? Once I find out the truth, I'll go look for you there."
The Little Princess bit her lips and shook her head. Her bright eyes were filled with resolution, "Big Brother Mo, I'll come with you. If I'm not around, Qi Haoran and his grandfather will certainly cause trouble for you. Besides, Older Sister Ruoyun had treated me so well in the past, I'd like to know who her murderer was as well."
Gu Ruoyun smiled as she observed the Little Princess' stubborn little face.
It has been six years.
This little girl who had loved following me around and running wildly in the past has grown up as well. However, that stubborn nature of hers has never changed. Once she has made a decision, no one can sway her from her choice.
"I'm sorry, Little Princess. I've gone back on my promise."
Mo Shangfei's entire face was riddled with guilt. In this life, the person I've wronged the most is the Little Princess.
"It's fine. As long as I refuse, can my Imperial Father really force me into marriage?"
As she spoke, the Little Princess' gaze slowly darkened and she smiled bitterly, "If it wasn't for my elder brother, the Crown Prince's worsening condition, that old fart would not be using the treatment for the Imperial Crown Prince illness as a threat to force me into marrying Qi Haoran."
Gu Ruoyun suddenly interrupted the Little Princess' words, "You're saying that the Crown Prince of Drifting Wind Country is sick?"
The Little Princess nodded as her vision slowly clouded over.
Imperial Father may indulge and shower me with love but when compared with the Crown Prince, that love doesn't really count for much.
"Perhaps I can cure him."
Gu Ruoyun's eyes darted back and forth as she considered this. She then curled the corners of her lips.
Mo Shangfei and the Little Princess were both shocked. They turned their attention towards Gu Ruoyun and asked agitatedly, "Is that true?"
Gu Ruoyun smiled, "Did you forget? I was friends with Xia Ruoyun so I've met the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian before. I've also studied under his tutelage for a period of time. Perhaps I could help you out."
The Little Princess' eyes sparkled. If this young lady is able to successfully cure the Crown Prince, I won't have to marry Qi Haoran.
"Miss, when can we go to save the Crown Prince?"
"Once I go to Drifting Wind Country." Gu Ruoyun's eyes flashed, "However, I need to make another trip first. You two can follow later. By then, I'll go to the Xia family home to visit Mo Shangfei."
The Little Princess nodded. This is our only chance. No matter what, I won't give up.
Gu Ruoyun said nothing more and turned around to head towards Drifting Wind Country. After all, the Little Princess and Mo Shangfei were too slow. She needed to survey the situation in Drifting Wind Country first.
