    "That person is the Sacred Lady of the Secret Order!"

    The old man took a deep breath before he continued, "I heard that the Clan Elder had brought the Sacred Lady back twenty years ago. The Holy Beast of the Secret Order had bestowed the title of the 'Sacred Lady' to her! However, no one knows what the Sacred Lady looks like and neither do we know her name. All we know is that this Sacred Lady is almost forty years old now. Therefore, you must be very careful when you're outside in case you end up provoking the Sacred Lady of the Secret Order. Not even the Lord Governor can protect you then, let alone me."

    Murong Qian nodded solemnly. "I understand, grandfather, I won't ever step on the Secret Order's tail. The Secret Order simply sounds too scary!"

    "Alright, I've said all that needs to be said. You can go now." The old man waved his hand as he spoke lovingly.

    "I'll take my leave now."

    Murong Qian flashed a charming smile before she left the old man's side and made her way out of the study.

    ...

    At Overlook Town, the bustling streets were completely silenced after Gu Ruoyun's arrival.

    It was obvious that the citizens of the town had carved Gu Ruoyun's image into their minds since the competition! Now that she has made an appearance again, they could not help but glance at her with their eyes filled with longing and admiration.

    After all, Great Master Wu Yin was already powerful in the eyes of Overlook Town's inhabitants. Yet, if a person like Great Master Wu Yin could lose to her, was this not entirely shocking?

    "Are you Gu Ruoyun?"

    Suddenly, two figures appeared in front of Gu Ruoyun and blocked her way.

    Gu Ruoyun raised her brow as she stared at the two who were standing in front of her. A glint flashed in her eyes.

    Their powers are just below the rank of an exceptional state Martial Saint! She mused.

    "That's right." Gu Ruoyun nodded. "I'm Gu Ruoyun. May I ask what business do you have with me?"

    "My Sir had witnessed your competition against Grand Master Wu Yin so he's extending you an invitation."

    The man in gray was not exactly friendly but he had spoken with a hint of respect.

    A pill master was enough for cultivators at the exceptional state to lower their pride!

    Gu Ruoyun thought for a moment before she replied, "Lead the way."

    She was really curious about the identity of the person who wishes to meet her.

    A man dressed in embroidered robes was leaning against the window of an inn as he sipped quietly on his tea. His eyes were fixed on the scenery outside the window and no one could tell what he was thinking.

    The man looked rather emaciated as if he had been bedridden for a long time. His handsome face was rather pale too as if not a drop of blood was left and that his life would fade away at any moment.

    However, what made Gu Ruoyun fall silent was the fact that there was no hint of spiritual energy fluctuations in the man at all. His aura was just like a normal person's which moved up and down indefinitely without remaining steady! If those two powerful cultivators had not tagged along with him, it was easy to assume that this man was merely a common citizen.

    Nevertheless, Gu Ruoyun knows that the First City was not like the mainland. Commoners who have no cultivation abilities were virtually non-existent in the First City. The reason that this man does not emit any spiritual energy fluctuations was very simple, he must have run into an unfortunate event which had exhausted and damaged his powers!

    "Sir, I've brought the person that you've requested to meet."

    The man in gray robes approached that man and joined his fists respectfully as he spoke.

    "Mm." Upon hearing this, the man finally turned to look at Gu Ruoyun. "My initial objective for coming to Overlook Town was to send a request to Great Master Wu Yin to ask for his help with some matters. Now that I've witnessed both your performances, I'd like to ask you for help."
