    "Stop!"

    The two guards quickly checked the portrait in their hands once Gu Ruoyun appeared. They looked at each other before turning their gaze towards Gu Ruoyun.

    "Miss, our elder wishes to see you."

    Elder?

    Gu Ruoyun frowned as she asked, "What does your elder want with me?"

    "This isn't something that we know. If you want to know the reason, come with us to meet our elder!" The guard sighed with relief. They never thought that they would find the woman in the portrait after so many days of inspection.

    This way, they could give their elder an explanation.

    "Lead the way."

    Gu Ruoyun thought for a moment before she agreed to see the elder of Wind Valley.

    She wants to find out why the elder of Wind Valley wishes to see her!

    One of the guards made a welcoming gesture and led the way. The other guard had stayed behind to watch the gate.

    At Wind City.

    An old man sipped his tea as he sat in front of a table in a guest house's room. When the room's door was pushed open, his brows moved a little and he turned his gaze towards Gu Ruoyun who had followed the guard into the room.

    "Lady Gu, I've been waiting for you."

    The old man mildly curled the corners of his lips and smiled at Gu Ruoyun who had just entered the room.

    Gu Ruoyun's expression slowly sank as she looked at the old man in front of her and asked, "How did you know that I would be here?"

    "Hehe," the old man chuckled. "Actually, I've sent men with your picture to many places other than Wind City to look for you. I never thought that I'd actually find you. Lady Gu, I've asked you to come here because I wish to discuss something with you."

    "What is it?"

    Gu Ruoyun furrowed her brows and asked.

    "Wind Valley has taken an interest in your talents so we'd like to invite you to join Wind Valley. What do you think, Lady Gu?"

    "Apologies." Gu Ruoyun smiled faintly but her eyes remained just as clear and cold as ever. "I've already rejected your offer back at the Medicine Sect! My answer remains the same, I won't join Wind Valley 1  so you better give up."

    Elder Bai's eyes sharpened as a near-undetectable light flashed through his eyes. The corners of his lips had remained fixed in a smile. "Lady Gu, think about it. Joining Wind Valley will only bring you benefits and no disadvantages! Besides, you're aware of Wind Valley's prestige. As long as you're willing to pledge your allegiance to Wind Valley, we can give you a position where no one else is above you but our Master. Furthermore, no one would have the courage to touch you in the First City."

    He paused before he continued to speak, "Furthermore, Lady Gu, your powers are at the level of an early-stage Martial Saint and there're countless powerful cultivators in the First City. You can imagine the dangers that you will face. If you agree to join Wind Valley, I assure you that no one would dare to cause trouble for you. My Lady has always appreciated talented individuals so she won't treat you unkindly."

    There was an indifferent smile on Gu Ruoyun's face. Her gaze remained clear and cold as she exclaimed, "I enjoy my freedom and I don't want to be restricted. I appreciate the Eldest Lady of Wind Valley's kind offer but I must turn it down once again!"

    "Lady Gu." Elder Bai's eyes sank. He slowly steadied his emotions and replied with a small smile. "You should stop rejecting Wind Valley's offer. I'll give you one more chance to think it over. Besides, I can assure you that Wind Valley won't restrict your freedom. You only need to supply Wind Valley with pills on a regular basis and that would be enough. Wind Valley will help you to take care of everything else. The freedom that you want? Wind Valley can give it to you."
