Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The first person to step out was dressed in green robes and carried her usual air of indifference. Her dark eyes were calm and not a single sign of emotion could be seen in them.
Wen Yan's heart thumped anxiously when he saw the look on her face and he hurriedly rushed into the room.
"Maternal grandfather, are you alright?"
He saw the old man who was sitting cross-legged and noticed the emotionless look on his face as well. His heart raced fiercely as he spoke, "Maternal grandfather, was it a failure? It's alright. Even so, we still have the Dragon Blood Fruit on hand. I will ensure that the Dragon Blood Fruit will display its best effects."
At this moment, Wen Yan was under the impression that Old Man Jiang had been unable to accept the shock and had been rendered speechless. He hurriedly tried to console him but his brows remained tightly furrowed and no one could tell what he was thinking at all.
Just as Wen Yan had gone into a complete state of anxiety, the old man finally responded, "What are you standing around for? I'm getting stiff, why aren't you helping me up?"
"Ah?" Wen Yan was mildly dazed before he quickly followed Old Man Jiang's orders and helped him to his feet. "Maternal grandfather," Wen Yan spoke in an anxious voice, "What's wrong? Even if Miss Gu had failed, it's not a huge issue. After all, many doctors who have tried to treat you have failed so don't blame her for this. Besides, didn't she mention that she wouldn't be able to clear the toxins in only one day? It's only been a day after all. We still have two more days to try again."
Regardless, Gu Ruoyun had already helped everyone in Cloudy Wind City and Wen Yan does not want his maternal grandfather to blame her in any way.
Old Man Jiang took a deep breath before glaring at Wen Yan, "Who told you that it had been a failure? I'm only feeling a bit numb. Let me tell you this, ever since I had been poisoned, this was the first time I've ever felt so relaxed as if my very bones have been cleansed!"
Old Man Jiang believes that he might be able to return to his former glory tomorrow without the need to wait for three more days to pass!
He could not help but feel excited when he thought about that and spoke with a radiant look on his face.
"Yan'er, I have a feeling that this little girl is no mere weed in the pond! She will grow even stronger one day. When that time comes, perhaps the geniuses of the First City can only look up to her existence!"
Wen Yan was completely dazed when he heard this.
Gu Ruoyun was indeed very powerful. Even he admits to this.
Otherwise, that holy beast would never have followed her so willingly!
Even the peerless geniuses of the First City could not be compared to her?
Is this even possible?
The First City was not like any place in the secular world! A countless number of geniuses live there and some were unmatched in existence. However, he never thought that his maternal grandfather would place Gu Ruoyun in such high esteem!
"Zhu'er," Old Man Jiang glanced at Jiang Mozhu who was standing at the door. He then raised his brows and said, "It's worth it for you to start a relationship with this little girl! Besides, you can learn well from her. I believe that her appearance will bring great change to the Northern Block Territory's landscape. Perhaps we might even become unified."
Wen Yan, who still had not regained his senses, became dazed once again when he heard these words.
Her appearance will bring great change to the Northern Block Territory's landscape?
Wen Yan wrinkled his brows but he did not respond to Old Man Jiang's words.
However, he never thought that Old Man Jiang's words would come to fruition one day and that the Northern Block Territory would indeed be greatly changed by Gu Ruoyun's appearance, creating a full-blown carnage!
"Grandfather, I understand," Jiang Mozhu smiled as he replied.
His smile was as brilliant as a ray of sunlight shining into one's heart.
Just then, a delicate and serene figure appeared in his mind's eye, causing him to blush red, "I won't let you down."

Chapter 993: Gu Ruoyun? Imposter! (1)

Ultimately, Gu Ruoyun chose not to attend Cloudy Wind City's banquet.
She gathered all the things that she needed after healing Old Man Jiang and left without any further delay! The delicate-looking youth, who had tagged along with Old Man Jiang, tried to speak to her several times but could not find the words. Finally, he approached Gu Ruoyun and mumbled coyly with a very red face, "I hope that we'll meet again someday."
After he had spoken, he then hurriedly turned and walked away as Gu Ruoyun stared in confusion at him.
Xia Linyu seems to have noticed something but he did not say a thing. Instead, he turned around and looked at the woman in green next to him before smiling and saying, "Sister, let's go."
Gu Ruoyun nodded with a small smile as a light flashed across her eyes, "The matter at hand is most urgent at the moment so we need to rush towards the main city where the Medicine Sect's mansion is located! Of course, if we do manage to find some of the herbs along the way, that would be even better."
Xia Linyu smiled delicately. He had really never placed any hope into recovering his severed arm from the very beginning. Now, however, hope has been reignited in his heart.
He does not wish to drag his sister down just like he did during his past life!
He wants to utilize his own abilities to protect the person he loves the most in this lifetime.
The Northern Block Territory is like a country with extremely vast territories! In the Northern Block Territory, there lies an abundance of famous herbs! Hence, Gu Ruoyun had managed to collect a lot of precious medicinal herbs along the way! Unfortunately, none of the herbs that she had picked up were the herbs that she actually needed to restore Xia Linyu's arm.
The Nemesis Forest!
Even though it was not the most fearsome place in the Northern Block Territory, the Nemesis Forest was known to contain countless danger zones and labyrinths! If someone who was unfamiliar with the Nemesis Forest's terrain and boldly set foot into this area, all that awaits them was an eternity of bitterness!
Even if one was familiar with the landscape, the innumerable succession of danger zones and powerful spiritual beasts would give one a severe headache. Hence, not many would willingly set foot in the Nemesis Forest.
At this time, a group of men was cutting their way through thistles and thorns on a quiet little path in the Nemesis Forest as they forged their way forward.
A handsome man dressed in flax-colored robes was leading the way. His skin displayed a healthy wheat-hued tone, clearly due to encountering many frequent battles! There was a scar on the corner of his forehead but his good looks were unaffected by it. Instead, that scar added an extra sense of heroism to his handsome features.
A dainty and exquisite young woman was following closely behind him. This young woman has extremely sweet and beautiful features. Her big, vivid eyes were bright and full of expression. She looked out of place as she walked beside the rough and brawny man next to her.
"Leader, we've been in the Nemesis Forest for over a month now yet we've still not been able to get out. Are we going to be trapped here forever?"
A middle-aged man could not help but complain. Heaven knows that they have almost nearly been driven to madness after being trapped in the Nemesis Forest for over a month! If it had not been for this bunch of idiots, they would never have been forced into this state!
The man in flax-colored robes, who had been addressed as the 'leader', knitted his sharp brows into a tight knot. The expression on his face was not a pretty sight but, in the end, he could only sigh softly.
"I know another path in the Nemesis Forest but that path is guarded by a mid-level Martial Supreme spiritual beast! That spiritual beast is also the King of Nemesis Forest! Hence, we cannot use that path! We have no choice but to find another way at this moment."
