When she realized that the two men were getting completely swept up in the fight, Gu Ruoyun finally returned to her senses and frowned as she exclaimed, "Both of you, stop it this instant."
Once she had spoken, the two men in the air obediently listened to her. However, they still eyed each other with disgust and neither one of them was willing to back off!
Gu Ruoyun laughed bitterly with a hint of exasperation, "When have you become so brash?"
Qianbei Ye eyed the man in red but he ultimately descended from the sky to stand next to Gu Ruoyun and whined pitifully, "Yun'er, he had a painting of you in his hands so he must have bad intentions! I only wanted to snatch that painting away but he refused to give it to me so we had ended up fighting."
According to Qianbei Ye's observations, this fellow must harbor some sort of criminal intent. Otherwise, why would he have Gu Ruoyun's picture? Furthermore, he has been all over the place trying to gather information about her.
If this was not criminal intent, then what was?
At this moment, the man in red no longer bothered to look at Qianbei Ye as he fixed his eyes squarely upon Gu Ruoyun.
His eyes carried a sense of excitement and joy. However, a vast majority of it was also clouded by guilt...
It has been so many years after she was born. I've never kept her company, not even for one day.
So much so that when she had appeared in front of me that day, I wasn't able to recognize this girl as the daughter whom I've been yearning for so long.
The man in red opened his mouth but was unable to utter the thousands of words that he wanted to say at that moment.
However, his eyes continued to stare at Gu Ruoyun, unable to bear the thought of turning away.
Qianbei Ye furrowed his brows and took two steps forward. He walked right in front of Gu Ruoyun, perfectly blocking her from the man in red's view.
"Damned kid! Get out of my way this instant!" The man in red was immediately enraged. This damned brat has dared to stick so closely to my precious daughter and had tried to snatch the picture of my precious daughter away from me!
Where is he placing me, her own father, at what position?
Obviously, Qianbei Ye was still unaware that he had offended his own future father-in-law. After all, Grand Lord Hong Lian was staring at Gu Ruoyun with far too much intensity and looked too vulgar for words. No wonder Qianbei Ye would view him as an enemy.
"Xiao Ye, this is my godfather."
Three black lines appeared on Gu Ruoyun's forehead as she explained exasperatedly.
Qianbei Ye finally stepped aside when he heard this but he continued to stay by Gu Ruoyun's side and sent warning looks at the man in red.
Grand Lord Hong Lian was nearly going mad with rage.
What is the meaning of this, you damned brat? He dares to glare at me in such a manner? Does he think that I'm going to try and kidnap my own daughter?
Wait a minute!
I am this girl's father, so what if I kidnap her? What, I can't take my own daughter away?
"Hahaha, I wonder what brings you to my humble little Drifting Wind Country, Lord Hong Lian?"
Just then, a loud laughter filled the skies. This was followed by a yellow figure who slowly emerged and appeared before their eyes.
Supreme Gao had sensed the man in red's presence ever since he had appeared in Drifting Wind Country. Besides, he had threatened an officer tasked with guarding the city so it was impossible that he could have gone undetected! However, what shocked Supreme Gao was that Grand Lord Hong Lian had journeyed from so far away just to find a woman?
He has even brandished her portrait as he went around the entire place, questioning everyone about her!
Supreme Gao narrowed his eyes at the thought and turned towards Gu Ruoyun who was standing before the man in red. A peculiar glint flashed in his eyes.
