    Gu Ruoyun felt the temperature rise as she ventured deeper into the cave.

    That's right, it was a blistering heat!

    However, this heat was different from the heat within the flaming cave. This was a temperature which was hot enough to burn one's soul into ash! Even the Martial Supreme ranked Old Man Jiang and the others felt it difficult to continue forward.

    Jiang Mozhu obviously could not hold on much longer as sweat streamed continuously from his fair and jade-like face. He had initially thought of opening his mouth to ask them to let him stay back but when he saw the steadfast look on Gu Ruoyun's face, the words became stuck in his throat and he found himself unable to speak.

    Since she was also able to continue, he must not give up either!

    At least, he must not give Miss Gu any reason to look down on him.

    Jiang Mozhu does not know why he feels such a great attachment towards Gu Ruoyun. It was also due to this attachment that he has managed to come this far...

    "Old Man Jiang."

    Gu Ruoyun took one look at Jiang Mozhu who was stumbling along and said, "I can sense something in this mysterious cave so it's best to let those below the rank of a Martial Supreme stay back. There isn't much use to let them venture further in."

    Old Man Jiang was shocked. He then noticed that Jiang Mozhu seems to be having difficulties moving forward so he nodded immediately. "Alright. Zhu'er, you and the rest should stay here and wait for us."

    "But, Grandfather..."

    The young man's delicate features flashed with determination. His clear and limpid eyes stared at Old Man Jiang as he replied, "I can do this."

    "Zhu'er, accidents may happen in this mountain cave. I won't let you take that risk so this time, I can't let you have your way." Old Man Jiang shook his head as he laughed bitterly.

    How could he not be aware of how his own grandson thinks?

    Ever since they had left Cloudy Wind City, his grandson has been rather absent-minded. As his grandfather, how could he fail to pinpoint his own grandson's intentions? Now that his grandson has met the Gu girl again, he must be determined to prove his worthiness to her.

    However, the Gu girl does not seem to be interested in his grandson.

    Still, they can cross that bridge when the time comes. Who can say what the future holds?

    Jiang Mozhu felt somewhat disappointed when he heard Old Man Jiang's words and clenched his fists at his sides.

    He felt the distance between Gu Ruoyun and him this time.

    If he had been strong enough, perhaps he would be able to follow them to the end of the cave and would not have been told to stay here.

    Old Man Jiang himself probably never realized that it was because of what had happened today that his grandson, who had ever really paid any attention to cultivation, would throw himself into cultivation upon their return. The rapidness of this sudden change would make even Old Man Jiang jump in fright...

    "Miss Bai Yin, let's continue on."

    Lan Shao turned respectfully towards Bai Yin and spoke in an ingratiating manner, "Regardless of the dangers that lie ahead, I, Lan Shao, will ensure your safety."

    Bai Yin nodded. Her cold, icy gaze then turned towards Gu Ruoyun like the sharp blade of a sword as her murderous intent shot out from all directions. Her lips were curled into a cruel angle and she stared at Gu Ruoyun as if she was looking at a dead person walking.

    "Gu Ruoyun, you've brought this all upon yourself. This would not have happened if you had only listened to my orders back then. You are sorely mistaken if you think that you could use your good looks to seduce the Grand Lord. However, the Grand Lord is fiercely loyal to the Madam so how could he possibly be interested in a young and inexperienced little girl like you? You're digging your own grave just by having delusions of seducing him!"

    In Bai Yin's heart, Grand Lord Hong Lian already belongs to her! No one knows if the Madam was dead or alive after so many years, perhaps she was no longer in the world of the living by now. To bai Yin, as long as she was patient enough, she would certainly be able to melt the Grand Lord's icy heart.
