    "I never had any intention of killing you, I only wanted you to follow me."

    Gu Ruoyun returned to her senses and calmly replied.

    Upon hearing this, Yun Yan sighed with relief.

    As a disciple in the Secret Order, he has his pride. This pride had driven him to issue a challenge to Gu Ruoyun. Similarly, it has also caused him to concede defeat! If he had vehemently refused to admit to it after his defeat, he would have caused the Secret Order to lose face.

    Hence, as the Secret Order's disciple, Yun Yan may have looked down on Gu Ruoyun in the beginning but he was daring to act and courageous enough to take responsibility for it!

    If Gu Ruoyun really did kill him, he would have been perfectly happy to accept death all for the sake of his pride!

    However, who would not be afraid of death in this world? Even though he had willingly accepted the punishment of defeat, it does not mean that he does not want to live!

    To be able to live was good news. Hence, once he found out that Gu Ruoyun had no intentions to kill him, his heart relaxed...

    "I can promise that aside from the Secret Order, you are someone whom I will pledge my loyalty to. However, if you ever harbor any bad intentions towards the Secret Order, I will take my word back even if I have to endure the scorn of everyone in the world!"

    In Yun Yan's heart, the Secret Order was still the most important to him! It was also a part of him that he could not live without! The reason why he had willingly conceded defeat was also because of the Secret Order's good name.

    To him, the Secret Order's dignity was far more important than his one surname!

    "Don't worry, as long as the Secret Order doesn't do anything to hurt me, I won't harm the Secret Order. Of course, if the Secret Order does try to hurt me, I won't spare you either." Gu Ruoyun smiled faintly. Her voice rang through the air and was just as light and airy as ever.

    Yun Yan pursed his lips and did not say anything more. He knows that from now on, aside from the Secret Order, he has to listen to this woman's orders!

    "Master."

    Zi Yun and Chu Luo stepped onto the stage simultaneously and walked towards Gu Ruoyun's side. They then spoke in unison, "Congratulations, Master, you've gained another subordinate."

    "Zi Yun, Chu Luo, let's go."

    Gu Ruoyun yawned, looked at the sky and said, "It's getting late. Let's go back and continue our cultivation."

    "Yes, Master."

    Zi Yun and Chu Luo joined their fists and quickly chased after Gu Ruoyun.

    A complex look appeared in Yun Yan's eyes as he stared the three departing figures...

    At the same time, a torrent of comments has risen in tournament plaza. Not a single disciple ever thought that Senior Brother Yun Yan, who was at the refined state, would lose to a woman at the late-stage of the exceptional state! If this matter were to leak out, the entire mainland would dive into a sensation.

    Of course, they would never reveal how a disciple of the Secret Order had been defeated by an outsider even if they were beaten to death. Otherwise, the Secret Order would lose face!

    Thus, the Secret Order's disciples cordially sealed off this piece of information and the people of the secular world were ignorant of the matters surrounding Gu Ruoyun in the Secret Order. As a result, news of Gu Ruoyun's arrival in the Secret Order never reached Dongfang Yu's ears...

    As for Wen Ya, there was not even a need to mention this, she would never proclaim her own enemy's rise to fame!

    ...

    At the disciple's chamber in the Secret Order.

    Yun Yan closed his eyes to regain his composure and began to cultivate the mental energy which he had used up in the day's fight. Another disciple walked in and joined his fists as he said, "Senior Brother Yun Yan, Wen Ya has requested for an audience."

    "Wen Ya, who's that?" Yun Yan furrowed his brows and asked, mildly astonished.

    "Reporting to Senior Brother, Wen Ya is the runner-up of this round's assessment. The Left Emissary had personally escorted her into the Secret Order."
