    However, before she could step into the threshold, she was promptly stopped by two guards in front of the gate.

    "Stop, this is the Jiang family residence. Please present your visitation invite!"

    "Visitation invite?"

    Gu Ruoyun shivered and said, "Report to Old Man Jiang and tell him that Gu Nianye is here for a visit."

    Gu Nianye?

    Both guards at the gate looked at each other. In the end, the guard who had first spoken continued to speak, "Miss, there are many who want to see our Master. However, you must present a visitation invite. We will then send it to the Master in your stead. If the Master agrees to meet you, you will be allowed to enter. This is the Jiang family's rule."

    Gu Ruoyun knitted her brows together. She never thought that the Jiang family would be so troublesome. However, as she had not come prepared with a visitation invite, she would not be able to enter the Jiang family for the time being.

    "What's going on here?"

    Just then, a kindly voice sounded from behind her.

    Gu Ruoyun jumped when she heard this voice. She then turned around to find a kindly man walking towards her.

    That man did not seem to expect to find Gu Ruoyun here. His expression turned sluggish before quickly returning to normal.

    "Young Sir Wen."

    The two guards clearly recognized the man who was as gentle as a piece of jade. They joined their fists, bowed respectfully and said, "This young lady is here to visit the Master. I was only asking her for her visitation invite."

    Wen Yan!

    Gu Ruoyun smiled calmly, she never thought that she would bump into him here!

    "Isn't that a coincidence." Wen Yan smiled. "Miss Gu is maternal grandfather's old acquaintance. They had gone their separate ways in Cloudy Wind City just a few months ago. I never thought that I would meet you here again, Miss Gu. I haven't thanked you for eradicating the Snow Jade Bandits for Cloudy Wind City that day."

    Gu Ruoyun shrugged. "I had been in a hurry that day. Taking care of the Snow Jade Bandits was just something which had happened along the way."

    "Regardless of whether it was along the way, Miss Gu, you have helped us a great deal. Are you here to see my maternal grandfather?"

    "That's right." Gu Ruoyun nodded. "Since I've arrived in Main City, I want to meet Old Man Jiang and reminiscing about the past no matter what. I don't know if Old Man Jiang is in the manor."

    "If grandfather knows that you're here, he will definitely be very happy." Wen Yan's face displayed a small smile. His smile was like a ray of sunlight, giving one a wonderfully immersive and soothing feeling. "Let's go. I'll take you to see maternal grandfather."

    As Wen Yan was now escorting her, the two guards did not stand in her way anymore. However, their eyes were filled with shock. They never thought that Gu Ruoyun would actually be acquainted with Old Man Jiang. After all, Old Man Jiang was never reasonable in the entire Jiang family. Perhaps only his biological grandson, Jiang Mozhu, and maternal grandson, Wen Yan were allowed to see him a little more often.

    When did the typically unreasonable Old Man Jiang start to have such a good relationship with a little maiden?

    Furthermore, based on what Young Sir Wen had just said, it seems that the relationship between the two was unlike the rest!

    The two guards began to feel remorse at this thought. If they had known, they would have taken the opportunity earlier on to try to curry favor with her. Perhaps, when she meets the Master, she could put in a good word for them and they would not need to stand watch at the gate anymore.

    ...

    An old, white-bearded man was seated in the middle of an unusual-looking courtyard. A chessboard was placed in front of him but he was playing the game alone.

    In contrast to their meeting a few months ago, this old man has clearly aged by a large degree. He heard the sound of Wen Yan's footsteps but did not lift his head. He only spoke indifferently, "Yan'er, you're here?"

    "Yes, I had rushed right over from Cloudy Wind City once I had received your letter. May I ask why you've summoned me back to the Jiang family residence, maternal grandfather?"
