    After all, if it had not been for the Dragon Blood Fruit's existence, she would have left them to their own devices.

    "Regardless, I'd still like to thank you. To celebrate the Snow Jade Bandits' destruction, I've decided to hold a banquet tonight. I wonder if you would be interested to join us, Miss?"

    A banquet?

    Gu Ruoyun stroked her chin. Under normal circumstances, she certainly would not be interested at all.

    However, if the Dragon Blood Fruit was here, that would be a completely different situation!

    "Alright."

    Gu Ruoyun smiled and nodded. Suddenly, her gaze shifted as she asked, "By the way, I had overheard the Snow Jade Bandits talking about the Dragon Blood Fruit. They had actually come here for the sake of obtaining it. May I ask if this Dragon Blood Fruit..."

    "Miss, you know of the Dragon Blood Fruit as well?" Wen Yan smiled as he replied gently, "Actually, this Dragon Blood Fruit isn't really of much use to the Snow Jade Bandits. They were only looking for an excuse to pick a fight with the Cloudy Wind City. However, this Dragon Blood Fruit is of great use to me! An elder in my family is greatly ill and needs this Dragon Blood Fruit as a cure. Hence, I could not give this up to the Snow Jade Bandits no matter what!"

    Gu Ruoyun simply nodded and did not say much. No one could tell what she was thinking.

    "Ah right, Miss, it's getting late now. If you have nowhere to stay, perhaps you could come with me to the governor's palace?" Wen Yan smiled mildly. His smile has retained its usual gentleness.

    Gu Ruoyun nodded, "Alright, then I'll have to trouble you, Governor."

    "If you had not reached out and helped today, I would not have won so easily. Therefore, I've got to do what I've got to do." When he had said his piece, Wen Yan's gaze turned somber as he ordered, "Servant, escort Miss Gu to the governor's palace!"

    "Yes, my Lord!"

    The eyes of the governor's palace's guards lit up. After all, this woman was a benefactor who had saved Cloudy Wind City. She even has a powerful spiritual beast on hand. Such a great opportunity to network with her has been presented to them, how could they let it go?

    Hence, within a short amount of time, the guards of the governor's palace have become extremely friendly as they quickly escorted Gu Ruoyun to the governor's palace.

    When the crowd had dispersed, a figure appeared next to Wen Yan.

    It was a delicate-looking woman. Her black hair cascaded down like a waterfall and she had handsome brows and a snub nose. Her lips were a natural vermillion shade. She certainly looks like a well-brought-up daughter from a noble family.

    "Master, I can tell that this woman seems to have an interest in the Dragon Blood Fruit."

    The woman's voice was pleasant to the ears and was as clear and moving like a black-naped oriole. To hear her speak was a sort of enjoyment.

    As she stood by Wen Yan's side, the both of them looked absolutely spectacular.

    Sadly, no one was there to admire this picture perfect scene.

    "The Dragon Blood Fruit?"

    Wen Yan shuddered as he laughed bitterly, "She saved the Cloudy Wind City. I can give her whatever she wants but this Dragon Blood Fruit! After all, the Dragon Blood Fruit is connected to maternal grandfather's name! For my maternal grandfather's sake, I've made painstaking efforts to obtain this Dragon Blood Fruit. I will never let anyone else have it so I had no choice but to utilize other ways to thank her."

    The woman smiled mildly. It was a sweet-tempered and dignified smile.

    "Ah, that's right. Tian Qi, it looks like maternal grandfather will come for a visit tonight." Wen Yan smiled before he continued, "When that time comes, I will refer this woman to him. I can estimate that this woman's future will be limitless in the days to come. Since maternal grandfather treasures geniuses so much, they will definitely find a kindred spirit in each other."
