    Great Master Wu Yin and Bai Zhongtian looked at each other and saw a solemnness mirrored in each other's eyes. How could they have forgotten about this? Knowing the Lin family's nature, why would they just let Gu Ruoyun get away? They were most likely waiting for her at the bottom of the mountain.

    "Do you need any help, Gu girl?"

    Great Master Wu Yin furrowed his brows and asked.

    "There's no need, I can take care of it on my own. " Gu Ruoyun shook her head. "However, I just can't feel at ease with Ye Nuo by my side so he should join you two. I have too many enemies. If he tags along with me, I'm afraid I won't be able to protect him."

    If she were to run into trouble, Gu Ruoyun has absolute certainty that she would be able to escape. However, if she were to bring Ye Nuo along, she would not be so sure.

    "Bodyguard Gu."

    Ye Nuo tugged Gu Ruoyun's sleeve and lifted his head pitifully to look at her. He was absolutely filled with grief, like a poor little thing which had been abandoned by his mother. "I promise that I won't make any trouble, I'll be good. Don't throw me away, okay?"

    His pretty little face stared at her anxiously and pleadingly with his big, bright eyes.

    "Absolutely not," Gu Ruoyun rejected him ruthlessly. "It will be very dangerous if you were to come with me. I have the ability to protect myself on my own. If you come along, that may not be true."

    Ye Nuo's little face looked absolutely defeated and he was completely dejected. He slowly loosened his grip while his lip had lost all color from him biting on it too hard.

    "Then... I'll wait for you here. Once you're done with your business, come back for me, okay?"

    Gu Ruoyun nodded solemnly, "Wait until I'm certain that I have enough power, I'll come back for you."

    This time, Gu Ruoyun had not brought Xiao Hei along. Instead, she had left Xiao Hei with Wei Yiyi and the others and had chosen to come to the First City on her own. She could not bring Ye Nuo. Furthermore, she has no way of sending him away when danger arrives.

    Hence, she chose to leave Ye Nuo behind.

    A light flashed in Ye Nuo's eyes and he asked with uncertainty, "Bodyguard Gu, will you really come for me once you're done with your business?"

    Staring at Ye Nuo's hopeful gaze, Gu Ruoyun nodded her head again.

    "I'll be back."

    "Alright, I'll wait for you here. You're not allowed to lie to me."

    She did not know why but when she heard Ye Nuo's words, she could not help but remember the freckle-faced maiden that she had met at Windfall Village.

    At the time, she had also promised the little maiden that she would return to teach her medicine after completing her business.

    Who would have thought that their one goodbye would be their last!

    "Master, you should hold on to these pills. You can use them in times when you need to save your life." Gu Ruoyun pulled a porcelain bottle out and placed it on the table. She then pondered for a moment. She did not feel assured so she pulled out another two middle-class spiritual weapons. "Hold on to these two spiritual weapons for now. You protect your lives in times of danger, no matter what."

    Bai Zhongtian stared blankly and unblinkingly at the spiritual weapons Gu Ruoyun had just pulled out. He looked like a big grey wolf which had run into a tasty little white rabbit and was nearly drooling.

    "Little girl, you have so many good things. Why had you not paid your respects to your Master by giving them to me earlier on?"

    In contrast with Bai Zhongtian, Great Master Wu Yin's face carried an obvious sense of shock. He seemed to be struggling with himself.

    "Gu girl, there's no gain without pain. I don't think it's a good idea for me to hold on to your spiritual weapon."

    Gu Ruoyun had her own motivation when she chose to give them the two spiritual weapons. She does not want the tragedy of Windfall Village to happen all over again. At the very least, these two old men's powers should increase greatly with the two spiritual weapons in their hands.
