    "I'm sure that a lot of you have heard about me and must be feeling curious about me as well. The reason why I've invited you here is to make an announcement! From now on, I'm the governor of Black Rock City. Furthermore, I will make Black Rock City the most powerful in the entire Plain Hills."

    Gu Ruoyun smiled again before continuing, "You've seen the situation of Black Rock City for yourselves so I'm not just saying this for the sake of it. One day, it will come true."

    Hearing this, the governors seated beneath her began whispering amongst themselves.

    That's right, Black Rock City's power has grown so much that it was shocking. That also proves that this young governor was supported by extremely powerful supporters. It would be best to try not to provoke someone like this as much as possible. Otherwise, if one happened to anger the mysterious power behind her, the entire governor's palace would be finished.

    "There's one more thing," Gu Ruoyun paused and smiled, "I'm searching for news about one particular item."

    "What is it, if you don't mind telling us, governor of Black Rock City?"

    The governor of Heavenly Feather City smiled as he asked.

    "My surname is Gu, you may call me Lady Gu." Gu Ruoyun paused before continuing, "Actually, my biggest reason in calling all of you here is because I need some information. I wonder if any of you have heard of the Hell's Lotus?"

    Hell's Lotus?

    Everyone looked at each other in dismay, seeing the shock in one another's eyes.

    The Hell's Lotus is the most valuable thing in the Banished Lands. Similarly, no one really knows where the Hell's Lotus really is.

    So, once she saw the look on their faces, Gu Ruoyun sighed.

    Just as she was about to speak again, an elderly voice sounded, "This Hell's Lotus, I think I may have heard who it belongs to."

    The voice was like the sound of Nature, causing Gu Ruoyun's eyes to sparkle. Nevertheless, she hurriedly returned back to normal.

    "If you can give me the information, I'll give you the remaining contents of this pot of tea."

    Gu Ruoyun calmed the excitement in her heart and purposely evened out her voice.

    The pot of tea she had spoken of was the very same one with Spirit Gathering Pills dissolved in it. Since she was in front of these powerful forces, she could not speak of pills so casually.

    But even this mere pot of tea could make everyone's breathing quicken.

    "It is the old-timer of the Ye family." The old man looked at the pot of tea in front of Gu Ruoyun and gulped, "Old Ye Lan of the Ye family has possessed a stump of Hell's Lotus for over ten years. But that was many years ago so I'm not sure if the Hell's Lotus is still in the Ye family's possession."

    Ye Lan?

    Gu Ruoyun's eyes darted back and forth. If I had known that he was in possession of a Hell's Lotus, I should have asked him while he was still in Black Rock City at the time.

    Unfortunately, Ye Lan has already returned to the Ye family home.

    No matter what, I will not give up on this opportunity.

    The Ye Family home... I must pay them a visit!

    The Hell's Lotus is the only way to save Xiao Ye.

    "Alright, this pot of tea now belongs to you. Master Murong, I'll leave the rest to you. I'll take my leave now."

    Gu Ruoyun slowly rose from her seat and walked out of the banquet hall.

    She stretched as she faced the sunlight outside the door then returned to her quarters.

    "Now that I have information on the Hell's Lotus, I must get it for Xiao Ye while it's still early. Now that matters in Black Rock City are pretty much at a conclusion, it's time for me to leave."
