    Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

    The Nine Underworld Flames seemed to understand the purple-robed man's words as the flames shot instantly towards the sky before charging towards him.

    The purple-robed man's face was disdainful as he watched the Nine Underworld Flames charge towards him. He straightened his sleeves in a nonchalant manner, ready to swat the little cluster of flames away.

    However, his contemptuous face soon stiffened.

    As the small cluster of flames approached him, it suddenly began to emit a powerful force. A small crack had also suddenly appeared in the small flame, making it look like a troll which was smiling creepily as it opened its mouth...

    The purple-robed man's eyes were shocked. Before he could react, the cluster of black flames had slammed forcefully into his chest.

    At that moment, he felt as if an incomparably hard fist had landed on his chest. His body was forcefully pushed out of the way and he landed in the middle of the crowd with a loud crash. The black flames began to sear his chest.

    "Argh!"

    "Argh, argh, argh!"

    The purple-robed man rolled around in agony until the ground was alight with the black flames.

    Everyone in the palace was shocked. That cluster of flames had looked so weak and tiny, how could it possibly emit such great power?

    This... This simply was not logical!

    "Xiao You, return."

    Gu Ruoyun calmly summoned.

    The Nine Underworld Flames left the purple-robed man's body and flew swiftly back to Gu Ruoyun's palm.

    Now, the purple-robed man looked very shabby indeed in his torn and tattered clothes which were scorched by the Nine Underworld Flames. His once inky-black hair was now disheveled as he lay on the ground, gasping for breath.

    There was a constant look of fear in his eyes.

    "Are you willing to serve me now?"

    Gu Ruoyun raised her eyes as she stared at the purple-robed man icily.

    "I will."

    How could he possibly have the courage to defy Gu Ruoyun now?

    Those flames were too horrifying, he did not want to ever encounter them again in this lifetime...

    "Does anyone else have any further objections?" Gu Ruoyun swept her gaze across the rest of the people in the palace. "If you're unhappy, you can step out and challenge me now. Don't blame me for never offering you this opportunity!"

    A few members amongst the crowd looked at each other before stepping out.

    "Out of all of us, Zi Yun's power is not considered to be very strong. Instead, he is more on the weaker side. Defeating him doesn't count for much so we stand with our refusal to serve you."

    Gu Ruoyun stroked her chin before she smiled and nodded. "In that case, I'll give you all the chance to challenge me. However, this time, I'll no longer allow you three strikes! Furthermore, you can all attack in unison. I don't have the time to compete with you all one by one."

    The crowd's faces filled with rage when they heard Gu Ruoyun's provocation. They immediately drew their weapons and charged towards Gu Ruoyun.

    "Since you've allowed us all to come at you together, why shouldn't we do as you wish? However, don't you regret it!"

    These people were all at the late stage of the exceptional state.

    They were two levels of power above Gu Ruoyun. Hence, in their hearts, they had already determined the latter's fate.

    Despite the strange flames in her grasp, she could never be able to hurt them all!

    After all, they were not Zi Yun! They would never have been lenient with her!

    "Looks like all of you do plan to attack me together. This way, I'll save quite a bit of time."

    Gu Ruoyun smiled calmly before she slowly raised her hand...
