"So, where are we going to now?"
After he regained his senses from his deep thought, Xiao Zixie pursed his lips. Every time he thought of Lu Chen's shameless words, a fiery rage would burn from within his heart. A cold, eerie light flashed across his purple eyes, carrying a thick murderous intent.
Gu Ruoyun raised her brows before slowly rising to her feet and walked out the door. Her lips were curled into a small smile and an undetectable glint flashed in her clear, cold gaze.
She did not reply Xiao Zixie's question as she exited the tearoom and headed towards the familiar streets...
"Grand Lord, Ling Feng has returned!"
At this moment in the Red Lotus Territory, the man in red raised an eyebrow upon hearing his subordinate's report. His fingers remained on his teacup and he replied indifferently, "Let him in."
"Yes, Grand Lord."
The man withdrew as he spoke. Soon, a man in black robes entered the room. He joined his fists and bowed as he greeted the man in red with reverence, "Reporting to the Grand Lord, this subordinate has received some news from the First City."
The man in red sipped his tea and his tone was as grim as ever.
"This subordinate has personally heard from an elder in the First City that the Young Lady has journeyed from the West Spirit Mainland and has arrived on the East Peak Mainland!"
The man in red tightened his grip on his teacup and his breathing quickened automatically.
"Is this true?"
In the entire Red Lotus Territory, only a select few know of Grand Lord Hong Lian's true identity.
That year, someone had set him up and he had nearly lost his life. Fortunately, he had a few loyal subordinates by his side. There weren't very many of them, only around ten had remained with him. However, these ten people have then followed him from the West Spirit Mainland to the East Peak Mainland and have stayed by his side through countless dangers and torment.
Ling Feng was one of them. He had expended a tremendous amount of effort in order to receive the assignment to go undercover in the First City!
"This subordinate had heard the news with his own ears. This can't be false."
The man in red's heart trembled. He tightened his grip on his teacup, took a deep breath and laughed bitterly, "All these years, I've offended quite a number of people to avoid the discovery of my identity from the West Spirit Mainland and also to protect my son and daughter from my hometown. I had concealed my identity so that aside from those b*stards in the First City, no one else would know my origins. Ling Feng, I had asked you to go undercover in the First City because I suspect that Yu'er might have fallen into their hands. I had thought of finding Yu'er's whereabouts but I never thought that you would have discovered news of my daughter."
"It has been so many years, so many years since I've laid eyes on her. I didn't even get to name her."
The man in red gently closed his eyes as his heart throbbed with agony.
"I wonder if she hates me. By the way, Ling Feng, what did the Gu family name my daughter? I had thought of countless names for her that year but before I could make a decision, that incident had happened. However, since she has arrived on the East Peak Mainland, I must find her no matter what!"
Hearing this, Ling Feng's mind harkened back to the name mentioned during his discussion with the elder in the First City. He said, "Gu Ruoyun!"
The teacup in the man in red's hand slowly slipped from his fingers. It fell to the ground and smashed into pieces. A flash of red robes then swiftly appeared in front of Ling Feng. The man in red grabbed him by the lapels and spoke with a completely different look on his face, "What did you just say? My own trueborn daughter, what's her name?"
