When she had saved the three Divine Beasts, Gu Ruoyun had originally intended for them to fight for her. This was something that the three Divine Beasts were also well aware of. However, after having interacted with her for so many years, they have long developed a deep trust for Gu Ruoyun. They were even glad to have met her.
Gu Ruoyun had a small smile on her face the entire time. Her clear, cold gaze observed the little lolita with a smile. She believes that Yunyao and the rest would handle this matter very well for her.
When Xiao Zixie saw that Yunyao was about to continue her attempts to convince the Vermillion Bird, his adorable face darkened in a split second. He turned his arrogant purple eyes towards the little lolita and exclaimed in an insufferably imperious manner, "I'll give you a choice, form a contract with her or leave!"
Initially, Xiao Zixie had intended to threaten Chi with 'form a contract or die' but when he remembered that the Vermillion Bird has a rather close relationship with the White Tiger and the others, he decided that the threat would not be a good move so he had changed his words.
"You..." Chi was clearly enraged. She was about to lose her temper when she saw who Xiao Zixie was and was instantly shocked to her core.
Everyone thought that this Vermillion Bird has such a violent temper and would have definitely have lost her cool after being called out like that. Yet, in the end, they saw... Terror on her face?
That was right, it was definitely terror!
It was as if Xiao Zixie, who was only one head taller than her, was some sort of a monster.
"Why is it him? Yunyao, what is this pervert doing here?" Chi nearly jumped. Her expression was particularly horrifying and her tiny figure could not help but tremble.
She, who had initially acted smug and arrogant, slowly grew meek under Xiao Zixie's watchful gaze and no longer dared to say another word.
Yunyao laughed bitterly, "That's why I didn't want you to say anything else to avoid irritating him. I forgot to mention, this fellow is also the Master's contracted beast."
Hearing this, everyone in the room, aside from Bai Zhongtian who had long been aware of Xiao Zixie's identity, was stunned. Even the ones who were as solid as Supreme Jin could not help but shudder.
This little guy was actually a spiritual beast too? Even the Vermillion Bird, a member of the Four Divine Beasts, was terrified of him?
Who on earth is he?
Xia Ming gently shut his eyes as his expression filled with despair.
It's no wonder that the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian had said such things. This little boy's origins are not that simple. The funniest thing was that I had previously assumed that he was the little son of an average family and had wanted to purchase him at the price of ten gold pieces as a present for Ling'er.
Someone who could strike fear into the Vermillion Bird's heart... Cannot be exchanged for an entire country, what more ten gold pieces!
Only now did Xia Ming clearly understand the kind of people he has provoked.
Was there any point in regretting it now? It was useless to dwell on regret over some mistakes after having committed them!
At this moment, outside the Imperial City of Drifting Wind Country, a figure in red landed on the city walls. He stood with both arms clasped behind his back as his handsome and grim features stared at the horizon with his lips curled into a smile.
"Yun'er, I shall see you again soon. Previously, I was not aware of who you were so I had let you slip through my fingers. This time, no matter what, I will not let you leave!"
Half a month ago, the members of Red Lotus Territory had discovered Gu Ruoyun's location. Hence, after he had finished all his business in the territory, that man had quickly rushed over. He hoped that he was not too late and that the little girl has not yet left this place.
The man in red no longer dallied at the thought of this. He then shot off the city wall like a bright, red arrow. He caught hold of an officer and snapped open the portrait in his hands, raising his eyebrows as he asked, "Have you seen the woman in this picture?"
