    Lan Ge's gaze fell upon Gu Ruoyun. The murderous intent slowly faded away from his eyes and his expression soon returned to their initial steadiness.

    "I believe that you will change my life!"

    Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders. "I've said this before as well, only you can change yourself."

    Only I can change myself!

    Lan Ge fell silent for a while as he diligently looked into the meaning behind Gu Ruoyun's words. After a while, he came to a sense of understanding and his fair face which was marked with a dark mole displayed a small smile.

    "I understand. By the way, there's something that I need to tell you. Gu Lan... I know her."

    "Who is she?"

    Actually, Gu Ruoyun has some guesses towards Gu Lan's identity as well but she was not too sure of her assumptions.

    "She's a member of the Four Great Families from the Main City and the Eldest Lady of the Gu family! I heard that the Gu family had intended to use her to form a marriage alliance with the Jiang family's Young Master. She had run away to escape this political marriage. The Gu family has been searching for her whereabouts ever since."

    The surname 'Gu' was quite common in the Northern Block Territory.

    Hence, despite having interacted with the World Destruction Mercenaries for a year, no one had thought that Gu Lan was actually the missing Young Lady of the Gu family. Ye Ying had begun to suspect her identity after he had unwittingly caught sight of the spiritual weapon in her hands.

    "Alright, I understand."

    Gu Ruoyun nodded as she replied, "Lan Ge, I'm going to leave this place with Yu'er tomorrow. I hope that when we meet the next time, you'll be waiting for me with good news."

    "You're leaving?" Lan Ge was shocked. A sense of reluctance then welled up within him. "How will I find you then?"

    "Go to Main City, you'll find me there."

    Gu Ruoyun did not give Lan Ge the chance to reply as she headed towards the courtyard.

    Lan Ge silently watched her back as she left while his blue eyes gradually filled with determination.

    "Don't worry. I won't let you down, Master."

    ...

    The next day.

    At first light.

    In the front area of the World Destruction Mercenaries' courtyard, the mercenaries standing there were staring reluctantly at the two figures in front of them. Only Liu Yue was seated leisurely in a pavilion as he stared disdainfully at the sincere outpouring of feelings amongst the brutish mercenaries.

    To him, goodbyes were a very normal matter. These men were acting like women and looked so reluctant as if they were about to be separated in life and death.

    "Miss Gu, won't you join the auction?"

    Ye Ying had wanted to say more but, in the end, this was the only thing he could articulate.

    Gu Ruoyun shook her head as she replied, "There's nothing I need from this auction. I won't be staying any longer now."

    Generally speaking, the auction would distribute the list of items in the auction one day before the auction itself so that those who wish to join the auction would have enough time to prepare. Gu Ruoyun chose to leave after she had seen the list.

    There was nothing that she needed from the auction!

    "Then how about if we escorted you to Main City instead?"

    "There's no need." Gu Ruoyun shook her head before slowly turning her gaze towards Gu Lan's lovable and sweet features. She then slowly approached her. "Gu Lan," she said, "If you don't wish to be restricted or remain a victim, you must grow stronger! Only when you've grown strong enough will you be able to stop others from forcing you into doing things that you don't want to do."

    A dazed look appeared on Gu Lan's face as she stared back at Gu Ruoyun in astonishment.

    I must grow strong enough if I don't wish to be restricted?

    She fell silent for a moment as she carefully replayed Gu Ruoyun's words in her mind.

    As Gu Lan was deep in thought, Gu Ruoyun was already standing back in front of Xia Linyu. She smiled gently and said, "Yu'er, let's go."

    At that moment, Gu Ruoyun never thought that her words would have such a great impact upon Gu Lan! One could say that her words have molded Gu Lan into who she would become in the future!
