    Chapter 1355: The Secret Order's Plea (4)

    Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

    Gu Ruoyun's words caused a drastic change in the Left Emissary's expression. A sense of amazement flashed in his eyes as if he could not understand how she had found out about this matter.

    After all, when the Left Emissary had left the Secret Order, the two disciples who were guarding the Secret Order's gates had not mentioned Gu Ruoyun's appearance to him. Hence, he had no idea that Gu Ruoyun had already ascended Deity Peak. He was under the impression that she had grown afraid of the fearsome spiritual beasts in Deity Peak and had purposely stayed in the guest house to wait for him.

    "I don't know whether you had thrown us aside because of some last-minute urgent matters or if you never had any intentions of letting us enter the Secret Order." Gu Ruoyun smiled indifferently. "Since the Secret Order seems to be the type to go back on their word and would prevent the champions of the assessment from entering the Secret Order to accept the inheritance, I don't care if I don't go at all."

    The Left Emissary's eyes sank. He then laughed icily, "Gu Ruoyun, you've already received the title of champion in the assessment. If word gets out that you didn't enter the Secret Order, it would certainly affect the Secret Order's reputation. You can't take this matter lightly and you must come back with me! Furthermore, you are not allowed to speak about me leaving first. Otherwise, I will have ways to give you a hard time once we arrive in the Secret Order!"

    In the beginning, the Left Emissary had abandoned Gu Ruoyun because he was not aware of Gu Ruoyun's importance in the Secret Order.

    Hence, he believes that this woman was nothing more than a common genius and the Secret Order has no lack of geniuses. However, he never expected Elder Tianren to place such importance towards her. As a result, it was now too late for him to have regrets.

    Unfortunately, the deed has been done and he had no choice but to think of a million plans to save himself.

    He would never have dared to exercise his private rights before Gu Ruoyun enters the Secret Order but he had no choice. He had threatened Gu Ruoyun to prevent Elder Tianren from finding out about what he had done! He was hoping that she would be perceptive enough to help him cover up his lie!

    Otherwise, if Elder Tianren discovers that the Left Emissary had purposely cast Gu Ruoyun aside, it would draw the elder's ire towards him.

    After all, it was forbidden for one to use their position in public office to right private wrongs in the Secret Order. Even his Master would not be able to protect him.

    "Master." Zi Yun turned towards Gu Ruoyun and said, "This dog's barking is too annoying, let's chase him away."

    Zoom!

    As soon as Zi Yun spoke, a sharp light instantly flew towards him. That light may not be strong enough to kill him but it was enough to inflict a heavy injury.

    "Zi Yun, watch out!"

    Chu Luo's expression changed drastically and she appeared in front of Zi Yun in a flash. She then raised her longsword and blocked the oncoming light. She was pushed backward with a loud clang and a sliver of blood trickled down from the corner of her lips. Chu Luo knitted her brows as she stared at the Left Emissary.

    "Gu Ruoyun." The Left Emissary turned towards Gu Ruoyun and said, "Strangling you to death would be as simple as crushing an ant. However, I haven't attacked you on account of your status as the champion of the assessment. Now, I'm going to ask you one more time, are you going to come with me to the Secret Order?"

    Gu Ruoyun looked at the wounded Chu Luo then turned towards the Left Emissary. A murderous intent flashed in her clear and cold eyes.

    "So, it seems that the Secret Order isn't going to let me off at all. Since that's the case, Zixie, help me send our guest away."

    Zixie?

    Chu Luo and Zi Yun were in a daze. They had been following Gu Ruoyun for such a long time but they have never heard of this name before.

    Besides...

    Aside from us, there has never been another person following her!

    They simply could not understand who Gu Ruoyun was calling out to.
