    "Bodyguard Gu, it looks like your Master is losing."

    Ye Nuo blinked as his gaze shifted from Gu Ruoyun to the two competing old men in the plaza.

    Based on their auras, Great Master Wu Yin's power was a level above Bai Zhongtian's. Based on the current situation, Bai Zhongtian was also one step away from failure.

    Gu Ruoyun did not say much. She could not understand why her Master had challenged someone else to refine pills. After all, this old man had only just started to refine pills and could not possibly be compared to an experienced pill master.

    Bai Zhongtian finally lost the battle. Sweat rolled down his forehead and he nearly collapsed.

    "You've lost!" Great Master Wu Yin eyed Bai Zhongtian as he said calmly, "Based on our agreement, if you lose, you must become my servant! From now on, you will only listen to my commands!"

    Bai Zhongtian's expression changed but he did not say anything. However, his elderly face was now an extremely ugly shade.

    Just then, a cold and clear voice chimed in from behind him, "My Master had given way to you, that's why he lost. This doesn't count. How about I challenge you in his place?"

    Bai Zhongtian's body shook when he heard that familiar voice. He turned around in disbelief before his gaze landed on Gu Ruoyun's lucid and elegant features.

    His expression changed a little bit but in the end, all he could say was, "What are you doing here, girl?"

    Besides, she has even witnessed him at his most humiliating front...

    Bai Zhongtian could not help but laugh bitterly at the thought and then sighed exasperatedly.

    "Who are you?" Great Master Wu Yin's gaze landed upon Gu Ruoyun as he asked.

    "I am Bai Zhongtian's disciple," smiled Gu Ruoyun as she replied in a calm and breezy voice, "There was actually no need for my Master to challenge you, I'm good enough."

    Wah!

    The crowd plunged into a sensation. Everyone burst into a discussion as their voices filled with shock. Some even held hints of disdain.

    "The Master lost so the disciple has to step forward. Tsk, tsk. Could it be that they really think they could defeat Great Master Wun Yin?"

    "That's right, even the Master himself could not win, what more the disciple. Even if they were to compete several more rounds, they would still certainly lose!"

    "This girl may be young but she is rather bold, she has the courage to challenge Great Master Wu Yin. I reckon that her conclusion won't be very much different from this old man."

    Gu Ruoyun ignored the disdainful voices and her gaze landed on Bai Zhongtian's face. "Master, I won't let you become someone's servant. However, can you tell me what happened? Why had you challenged this man?"

    Bai Zhongtian laughed bitterly. "I was acquainted with Great Master Wu Yin in my youth. However, he was more outstanding and talented than I. Therefore, he had arrived in the First City ten years before me. I never thought that he would have already become a pill master! Once, we had been rivals and he had always underestimated me. Today, I couldn't stand it anymore so I decided to have a competition with him. In the end, I had lost..."

    "Don't worry. Master, since you've lost, let me retrieve the venue for you." Gu Ruoyun stepped forward and patted Bai Zhongtian's shoulders. She then lifted her head to face Great Master Wu Yin who was in front of her and said, "I wonder if you have any objection to me standing in as a replacement in my Master's competition?"

    Great Master Wu Yin scoffed coldly before he replied icily, "He was no match for me so there's no use in having you step forward. However, if you insist, how can I deny you? The criteria of the challenge is that both of us will produce a pill formula each. If I can refine a pill based on the contents of the pill formula and he was unable to refine one at all, I win. If the opposite happens, he wins! If both of us manage to refine the pill, it's a tie!"
