"The Vermillion Bird? If I'm hearing this right, it sounds like Xia Ming had addressed it as the Vermillion Bird? Could it be that it's the legendary Divine Bird, the Vermillion Bird?"
"The Vermillion Bird is one of the Four Divine Beasts. However, they had disappeared many years ago so why is it here now? What kind of f*cking luck does this Xia family have to get the Vermillion Bird in their possession? It's no wonder he had dared to act so fearlessly."
The Vermillion Bird scoffed and was clearly not bothered about the humans who were talking about it.
"I'll ask one more time, which of you is Gu Ruoyun?"
As the Vermillion Bird uttered its second question, Xia Ming scurried over with jolting buttocks, bowing and scraping as he replied, "Lord Vermillion Bird, that's Gu Ruoyun, she's the one you're looking for!"
Instantly, the Vermillion Bird's eyes turned to face Gu Ruoyun and its fiery pupils blazed with a furious light.
"You're Gu Ruoyun? Good, that's very good. You shall die today!"
The Vermillion Bird then flapped its wings as if it could engulf everything under the sky with its flames, carrying a terrifying aura.
Supreme Jin cried out and appeared in front of Gu Ruoyun in a flash. His eyes were watching the enraged Vermillion Bird seriously.
The Holy Doctor, however, was not as worried. With the Ancient Divine Phoenix Zixie on the girl's side, one mere Vermillion Bird cannot harm her.
After all, between the Divine Beasts and the Ancient Divine Beasts, there was an entire gulf of difference in their powers. They would not even be able to break through the suppression of their blood vessels!
"Chi, what are you doing?"
Just then, a tender-sounding voice cried out in front of Gu Ruoyun. When the Vermillion Bird laid its eyes upon the figure in front of Gu Ruoyun, it was stunned. An even bigger raging flame then exploded from its body as it screamed, "You, get out of the way!"
"Vermillion Bird, stop!" Yunyao's expression changed greatly. Her initially elegant features had grown cold when she heard the Vermillion Bird's words, "If you don't stop, kill me first before laying your hand on her!"
The confused crowd looked at the woman in yellow robes who had just appeared in front of Gu Ruoyun, clearly unable to comprehend her relationship with the Vermillion Bird. However, this woman does not seem to be much more powerful than the Vermillion Bird.
How does she expect to stop the Vermillion Bird? They wondered in unison.
The Vermillion Bird became even more incensed when it heard this, "This kid Xia Ming was right, you only know how to use spiritual beasts as a shield. If you're so great, then step out and fight me on your own! You're only good at using spiritual beasts to block your dangers, what kind of cultivator are you?"
Everyone in the main foyer looked at each other. Could it be that this elegant and beautiful woman is also a spiritual beast?
As Xia Ming stared at Yunyao's peerlessly gorgeous visage, a bad feeling entered his heart. However, he could not understand where this feeling had come from.
"A shield?" Yunyao was stunned as she knitted her brows, "What are you talking about? What shield? Vermillion Bird, as friends, we have not seen each other for so many years. Why has your temper grown even worse through the years? You even want to harm my master. However, she's not only my master but also a benefactor who had saved my life."
The Vermillion Bird scoffed and glared at Gu Ruoyun who was standing behind Yunyao's protective figure. It then replied irritably, "You don't need to lie to me, you're only doing this because you've been threatened by this woman! Xia Ming has told me everything. He had seen this woman maul you with his own eyes and she had captured the Azure Dragon to force you into submission. Furthermore, she then used your body as a shield against attacks. He could not bear to watch this woman abuse you so he had chastised her and had ended up festering in her grudge! However, don't you worry, I'll save you and Azure Dragon now. I think this Xia Ming fellow is a pretty good guy. After all, he does not think that we spiritual beasts should be used as shields for humans."
