    Gu Ruoyun curled the corners of her lips and stared at the man's pale face with a forced smile. "You want me to serve you?"

    "No." The man shook his head. His voice was rather frail as if he could disappear at any moment. "I want to ask for your help! I can reward you for it!"

    "May I ask what reward you're offering?" Gu Ruoyun smiled indifferently and replied in a nonchalant manner. "If the reward suits me, I might think about it."

    The man looked at Gu Ruoyun and slowly responded, "My name is Feng Yuqing."

    Feng Yuqing?

    Gu Ruoyun's gaze sharpened when she heard his name. "You're a member of Wind Valley?" she inquired. "The hedonistic, good-for-nothing Second Young Master of Wind Valley?"

    It was common knowledge that the Second Young Master of Wind Valley had a rebellious and mischievous nature. Later on, he had been stripped of his powers due to a secret plot. This was how the position of Young Master had then fallen into Feng Xiaoxiao's hands! However, based on her current observation, the Second Master of Wind Valley does not seem to be as unreasonable as the rumors say.

    Feng Yuqing smiled. "That's right, I am indeed that hedonistic, good-for-nothing Second Young Master of Wind Valley! Of course, if I had not been so naughty and mischievous, I'm afraid that Feng Xiaoxiao would have murdered me long ago! However, despite using my hedonistic ways to mask my cultivation, she had not spared me in the end!"

    "No matter what, you are the Second Master of Wind Valley. You had known of Feng Xiaoxiao's murderous intent towards you from the beginning. Why didn't you say anything then?" Gu Ruoyun knitted her brows as she asked.

    In Wind Valley, Feng Yuqing and Feng Xiaoxiao held different positions. Feng Yuqing, as the son of the first wife, was actually afraid of a concubine's daughter! Even though not many people know of Feng Xiaoxiao's birth, both their positions could not be compared on equal footing.

    Hence, Gu Ruoyun could not understand why Feng Yuqing had preferred to hide his true nature instead of exposing Feng Xiaoxiao's actions.

    Feng Yuqing shook his head and smiled bitterly. "Feng Xiaoxiao is a dark schemer, I cannot defeat her. Besides, after I had wised up to what was going on, she had already brought most of the elders of Wind Valley into submission secretly. Otherwise, she wouldn't have had so much support from the elders who had pushed for her promotion when my powers had been crippled! To avoid creating chaos in Wind Valley, I, lacking evidence, could not overthrow Feng Xiaoxiao. I haven't even spoken to my father about this."

    Even Feng Yuqing found it difficult to believe that Feng Xiaoxiao, who had only been a child at the time, had forced so many elders into submission. He had no chance to retaliate at all!

    If he had stepped forward to accuse Feng Xiaoxiao without any evidence, it would certainly start a civil war within Wind Valley! This was something that he does not wish to see! Hence, in order to cause Feng Xiaoxiao to loosen her vigilance, he had masked his true nature once he had reached adulthood by becoming the hedonistic disciple that everyone knows of today.

    However, he never thought that Feng Xiaoxiao would still launch an attack on him despite those circumstances! Even though he had managed to escape with his life, he had been reduced to a good-for-nothing!

    "If I help you, what reward will you grant me?"

    Gu Ruoyun raised her brow as her gaze landed upon Feng Yuqing's pale features.

    "Wind Valley must not fall into Feng Xiaoxiao's hands!" A murderous light flashed in Feng Yuqing's eyes. "Hence, I want to ask you to help me take back the Young Master of Wind Valley's position! I will give you half of Wind Valley as a reward!"

    Gu Ruoyun narrowed her eyes.  For the sake of the position as Young Master of Wind Valley, Feng Yuqing has given his blood and sweat!

    "There are many powerful cultivators in Wind Valley. I am only a newly-minted Martial Saint so I can't help you on my own."
