"Master, it's not my fault. I had wanted to give you an explanation but you refused to give me a chance at all. Furthermore, you chased me around and tried to beat me up. You're a Martial Supreme so my pounding wouldn't have harmed you at all."
Gu Ruoyun then retrieved the Ancient Divine Pagoda.
Bai Zhongtian was sprawled on the floor and his eyes were wide open. He looked as if he had just seen an ox with the face of a horse. He quivered, crawling to his feet as his elderly eyes stared fixedly on Gu Ruoyun.
"You're Xia Ruoyun?"
Gu Ruoyun nodded, "I just told you that I'm your disciple."
"Sh*t!" Bai Zhongtian could not contain himself from swearing, "Why didn't you mention that you had the Ancient Divine Pagoda earlier?"
It was Bai Zhongtian who had once told her the true power of the Ancient Divine Pagoda.
It was said that the Ancient Divine Pagoda only recognizes one master. Regardless of how many times that person was reincarnated, only they alone could form a contract with the Ancient Divine Pagoda! Hence, no one else would have been able to control the Ancient Divine Pagoda!
Bai Zhongtian was the only one who had this knowledge! This was why Gu Ruoyun was so certain that she could prove her identity to him.
However, she had not expected this guy to start screaming threats and try to beat her up the moment he had arrived. He simply had not given her the chance to speak. Therefore, she had no other choice but to let the Ancient Divine Pagoda show itself! After all, the Ancient Divine Pagoda exists inside her body and could only be summoned in battle. However, once she had summoned it, she could not put it away and had to smash the pitiful Bai Zhongtian.
"Master, did you forget?" Gu Ruoyun commented as she blinked at Bai Zhongtian, "You were the one who had asked me to shut up."
Bai Zhongtian was instantly rendered speechless. I really had not given her the chance to speak at all. His angry expression was then replaced by anxiety, "Dearest, precious disciple. I was unaware of your identity as Xia Ruoyun just a while ago so I had accidentally overreacted. Did I hurt you? Let me see."
Bai Zhongtian tried to touch Gu Ruoyun as he spoke.
However, before he could even reach her, he saw a red shadow appear right in front of her. The man's blood-red eyes swept towards him.
At that moment, Bai Zhongtian felt as if he had fallen into hell. His entire body was enveloped in an eerily cold aura until he quickly pulled his hand back. He cradled his arm as he exclaimed, "Dear disciple, please get this guy a little further away from me. He scares me."
Even Bai Zhongtian himself does not know why but he was deathly afraid of this man!
Especially the look in that man's eyes.
I wonder how many people he's had to kill to have eyes like that?
"Xiao Ye, this old fellow is very advanced in his age so don't scare him. What if he gets a heart attack? That would be horrible." Gu Ruoyun said as she patted Qianbei Ye's shoulder.
When he heard her words, Qianbei Ye immediately retracted his gaze and turned back towards Gu Ruoyun. In an instant, his initially gloomy-looking pupils softened and his red lips curled into a beautiful smile.
"Oh, right." Suddenly, Bai Zhongtian seemed to remember something and stared fixedly at Gu Ruoyun, "Aren't you supposed to be dead? What are you doing here?"
Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders, "Have you heard reincarnation? I was very fortunate. Even though I've died, I happened to reincarnate onto a different mainland..."
She then began to explain everything which had happened to her in the past six years to Bai Zhongtian. She reckoned that not even Bai Zhongtian would have expected Gu Ruoyun to have had such a stroke of luck and was given the opportunity to reincarnate. Forget about his expectations, not even the Xia family would have expected any of this at all.
