    After the Honorable Sir Tian Qi had left, the old man retracted his gaze and said, "Ze'er, you take care of our guests for a bit. I will now make preparations for the trials."

    "Father, don't worry, I'll take care of them. You relax and go ahead."

    Dongfang Shaoze replied warmly. His handsome, jade-like features were lifted into a smile.

    Then, without another word, the old man waved his hand as he headed towards the direction of the meeting room and soon disappeared from view.

    The moment he was gone, the entire courtyard burst into a cacophony of discussion.

    This had probably been the most unforgettable party of their lives.

    So, as it turned out, Mistress Lan of the Dongfang family was actually the younger sister of the Honorable Sir Tian Qi. No one in the mainland had known about this. Now, even the daughter of Dongfang Yu, who was also the mysterious master of the Hundred Herb Hall has actually returned to the Dongfang family.

    Furthermore, she has attained the rank of a Martial Emperor at such a young age...

    If news of this were to get out, the entire mainland would burst into a sensation.


    Dongfang Shaoze let out a cough. His expression changed from awe to an air of seriousness as he spoke sternly, "Ladies and gentlemen, for today, you have seen nothing you have heard nothing. If I were to ever find out any unsavoury gossip outside of these walls... Well, I'm sure you all know the methods of the Dongfang family very well!"

    I mustn't allow for news of Yun'er's gifts to leak out no matter what, he thought, Especially that string of pills that could allow a Martial Emperor to breakthrough. If this were to get out... I don't want to think of the consequences.

    "Yes, Young Master."

    The crowd regained their senses and replied respectfully.

    They were all very clear on the Dongfang family's methods. Besides, they were all under the jurisdiction of the Dongfang family so they wouldn't willfully disobey the Dongfang family's orders.

    However, not everyone would think of it in that way.

    Lin Yu'er clenched her fist as she stared in hateful jealousy towards the direction where Gu Ruoyun had departed in. A sneer started to form on her lips, containing a faint trace of mockery.

    "Gu Ruoyun, so what if your powers are strong, so what if you have the ability to surpass the crowd. Do you really think that you can go up against the Three Great Authorities with only your powers? If anyone knew about the pills which you hold in your hands, all that awaits you will be a death sentence issued by the Three Great Authorities! Don't judge the Three Great Authorities for their noble display of character in public. In reality, they would do anything to increase their power."

    This woman was looking for her own death!


    In the rear courtyard, just as Gu Ruoyun was about to push open the door, an elderly voice rang out from behind her.

    "Idiot girl, I need to speak to you."

    Gu Ruoyun raised an eyebrow, and turned around with a smile at the old man who was approaching her with his hands behind his back, "What? You want maternal grandmother to start ignoring you?"

    "You..." The old man puffed out his beard and glared in anger. I've yet to collect my debt from this fellow , he thought. But she was far too good and was actually using Ge'er to threaten me.  "I'm here because I have something to talk to you about, little girl. You really shouldn't have given that pill to your maternal grandmother in front of all those guests at the birthday party. You do know that if word of your actions were to get out, you will then attract many spies? Especially those hypocrites from the Immortal Realm. If they were to hear of this, I'm afraid that not even the Dongfang family could protect you then."

    Even though the old man's tone had a hint of rebuke, but his words, full of concern, softened Gu Ruoyun's heart.

    "I know."

    She knew that her conduct would attract great danger but if she didn't do this, it would be difficult to shut everyone up. It might even cause trouble for maternal grandfather and grandmother.
