Gu Ruoyun was deep in thought when the door of the compartment on the second floor opened once again.
Following that, she saw a man slowly walking down from the second floor. He was dressed in golden robes and had furrowed, stern brows. He seemed to sense a pair of eyes watching him and followed the trail. In an instant, a pair of clear, cold eyes crashed right into his golden eyes. He narrowed his eyes instantly and his heart feels as if it was pounding furiously.
Supreme Jin was shaken. His golden eyes flashed with a dark and gloomy confusion. He then slowly approached the woman in green who was sipping on her tea in the tearoom.
"Can I help you?"
Gu Ruoyun slowly put her teacup down and smiled serenely. She raised her eyes to look at the man in golden robes in front of her.
Supreme Jin's eyes tensed and his expression remained grave and stern. His voice remained cool as he asked, "Back in the snowy forest, this Supreme One had wanted to ask you something; have we met before?"
Gu Ruoyun smiled gently. Supreme Jin did not know why but when he saw her smile, he felt as if a heavy weight had pounded into his heart.
Her smile looks too much like Yun'er's. If it wasn't for the fact that I don't recognize her face at all, I would have suspected that this woman is actually Yun'er.
"My apologies, we don't know each other."
Gu Ruoyun mildly lowered her eyes, concealing her emotions and steadying the excitement in her heart. She then slowly looked up again and smiled lightly, "Even so, I would like to advise you that sometimes what you've heard might not be the truth. Perhaps the people you trust might be your true enemy."
Supreme Jin faltered for a bit before frowning.
What is she trying to say?
Is she implying that the people I trust are my true enemies? Is she referring to the Xia family?
Supreme Jin intended to question her further but after making her statement, Gu Ruoyun had lowered her head and quietly sipped on her tea, no longer looking at him. Seeing how she does not seem to want to talk anymore, he joined his fists together, bowed and left.
When the man in golden robes had left from the tearoom, the woman in green who had been sipping on her tea, slowly raised her head again. She drifted into deep thoughts as she watched his exit.
Suddenly, a boy in purple robes filled the space in front of Gu Ruoyun's seat.
The little boy was dressed in reddish-purple robes with a purple flame in the space between his brows. His fair and adorable face held a playful smile. He had no trace of politeness at all as he reached out and grabbed Gu Ruoyun's teacup, finishing her tea.
"You're not going to tell him?" Xiao Zixie's pupils darted back and forth. His thoughts were unreadable.
"I can't do that yet."
Gu Ruoyun shook her head, "Besides, he wouldn't believe me even if I had told him."
Xiao Zixie pursed his lips, deep in thought. At that moment, a childish voice rang out from the side.
"Older Brother Lu Chen, this little doll is very pretty. Will you buy it for me?"
Gu Ruoyun's entire being turned frosty when she heard that name. Her dark, bleak eyes immediately filled with a deep, whirling, murderous intent.
Nevertheless, she suppressed it all in the end and betrayed no emotion on her lucid and elegant face. She did not even spare a single look at the two people who had just entered the tearoom.
The person who had spoken was a little girl next to Lu Chen.
She noticed that the little girl was around five years old. Her fair and flawless little face was extremely adorable. Her large, sparkling and translucent eyes shone with intelligence and her long lashes were like cattail-leaf fans.
