As she stared at the man's peerlessly beautiful face, a warm current ran through Gu Ruoyun's heart as her lucid and elegant features broke into a smile, "Actually, it's not a very difficult task. I'd like to ask if you could bring Yu'er over, knowing your agility you should be very fast. Once everyone has been gathered, we'll go to the Xia family home. Now that I've gathered all the evidence, I need not feel apprehensive whether Supreme Jin or Mo Shangfei would help the Xia family."
This was the issue which she had worried about the most.
Of course, she was not worried about being unable to defeat Supreme Jin but she was unwilling to make an enemy of him. Hence, she had not made any move against the Xia family.
"Then I'll set off tomorrow. I'll be back in three days."
Qianbei Ye stared eagerly at Gu Ruoyun and said miserably, "Yun'er, we haven't seen each other in such a long time. You wouldn't bear to send me away today, right?"
"That's up to you."
Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders and turned away from Qianbei Ye.
It was a quiet night.
The clear, cold glow of the moon illuminated the room, brushing against the young woman's body. At this moment, Gu Ruoyun does not know why but her heart leaped when she sensed the still atmosphere. She opened her mouth to speak but at that moment, a hand reached forward from in front of her and pulled her into a warm embrace.
The man lowered his eyelids and gazed upon the woman in his arms, curling his mouth into a smile. His red eyes were filled with warmth and his silvery hair looked even more brilliant under the moonlight.
He looked so beautiful that it was as if he had just stepped out of a painting. The sight was so mesmerizing that one would find it hard to turn away.
"Yun'er, let's sleep together tonight, alright?"
The man's smile turned even more beautiful when he felt the woman's body tense up. His long, slender fingers stroked her soft hair.
Gu Ruoyun gently closed her eyes. When she opened her eyes again, her clear and cold pupils displayed a sense of resolution.
She raised her head towards the man before her and her eyes were filled with smiles.
Qianbei Ye smiled happily. That smile was so beautiful it looked like a fully bloomed flower. He murmured gently, "Let's go to bed, Yun'er. I'll start my journey to the West Spirit Mainland tomorrow morning and bring him here."
He then held Gu Ruoyun by the waist, carried her and gently placed her on the bed...
That night, Gu Ruoyun was unable to fall asleep at all as her mind was wild with nervousness. However, it was a good thing that the man only turned around and pulled her into his embrace and did not try to consummate anything. This made Gu Ruoyun's heart feel a little calmer.
The next day.
Early in the morning.
The snoozing couple was awakened by a sudden, muffled noise. They then heard an angry voice.
"Which damned girl dares to pose as my disciple? Get your f*cking ass out here right now!"
This voice was all too familiar to Gu Ruoyun.
She hurriedly opened her eyes and turned towards the furious old man in white who had just charged into the room.
Gu Ruoyun was instantly stunned before she hurriedly crawled out from the bed. Her heart was filled with joy, she had not anticipated the old Holy Doctor to have shown up so quickly. This was certainly out of her expectations.
Bai Zhongtian was extremely indignant at the sight of the woman on the bed. He threw his fist across with extreme force.
"Damned girl, who are you to f*cking call me your master?"
At that moment, a ray of red light flashed across and shielded Gu Ruoyun from his strike.
Momentarily undefended, Bai Zhongtian staggered back. He raised his head and stared in shock at the silver-haired man in red. His gaze then slowly grew solemn.
