    Chapter 1104: She's Gu Ruoyun? (7)

    "Old Master, I understand your worry. Gu Ruoyun is a pill master and even the members of Wind Valley want her favor. However, based on what I know, she had rejected Wind Valley and embarrassed the Eldest Lady of Wind Valley in front of everyone! Therefore, I don't think that her relationship with Wind Valley is a friendly one! Gu Ruoyun's power is truly great. If we want to get rid of her, we shall have to cut her off at the root. We can't give her any chances to grow any further."

    A malicious light flashed in the Great Elder's eyes as he made a chopping motion with his hand.

    That year, when the Old Master's father had wanted to hand Lan family over to the Old Master, he had been worried that the Old Master's personality was too weak so he had also formed the council of elders. In addition, he had appointed the Great Elder as the Old Master's assistant.

    Hence, amongst the Lan family members, even though the Old Master was the most powerful of all, the council of elders would only listen to the Great Elder alone. That also clearly showed the Great Elder's capital for standing by his word in the Lan family.

    "Great Elder..."

    The Great Elder cut the Old Master off gloomily when he saw that the Old Master was about to continue speaking. "I know that you've never been happy with Lan Shao's personality. You feel that Lan Shao values his own interests too much and is a scheming person! However, Lan Shao is your only flesh and blood after all and is the only one who can inherit the Lan family! Could it be that you now want to place all your hopes onto Lan Ge's shoulders? That good-for-nothing, Lan Ge, is absolutely useless. The day he becomes the Master of the Lan family will mark the end of the Lan family!"

    That year, in order to prevent exposing his identity as a demi-beast human, Lan Ge had hidden his powers and allowed everyone to think that he was a good-for-nothing! Unfortunately, while the Old Master wishes to nurture him, the council of elders had objected! As a result, the Old Master had sent Lan Ge away from the Lan family for the sake of Lan Ge's safety.

    "Besides," said the Great Elder as he glanced at the Old Master's silent old face, "I've heard that Gu Ruoyun is a vengeful person! Lan Shao has already crossed her so do you think she'll spare him? If you don't want the only son you have left to leave you, you have no choice but to agree with our decision!"

    The Old Master trembled and gently closed his eyes. When he opened his eyes again, a hint of resolution shot across his gaze.

    "I understand, we shall do as you say."

    This was for the sake of the Lan family! No matter how reluctant the Old Master felt, he could only agree with the Great Elder's decision!

    The Old Master sighed gently before slowly rising to his feet and declared indifferently, "I'm tired, I'm going to go get some rest. You can decide on what to do next yourselves. I don't want to be a part of this so don't ask for my opinion either. I am old. I may not be able to control the Lan family but I can only hope that the Lan family won't be destroyed by Lan Shao's hands."

    After he had said his piece, he stumbled out of the meeting hall.

    His shadow looked a little crooked as if he had aged ten years in that instant.

    "It seems that the old ancestor had good foresight for appointing the Great Elder to manage the council of elders." One of the elders turned towards the Old Master's departing figure and sighed exasperatedly. "Knowing the Old Master's cowardly and timid nature, how could we possibly expand the Lan family to greater heights? If the Great Elder hadn't been here, perhaps this old fellow would have given the Lan family over that the little bastard, Lan Ge! If that had happened, what right would the Lan family have to stand in this world?"

    "That's right, the Great Elder's decision is the right one! I also believe that Gu Ruoyun must die! Once she is dead, the Divine Weapon will naturally fall into our hands! If we had left it the Old Master with his exasperatingly slow personality, the Lan family can forget about any improvements in this lifetime."
