    "Gu Ruoyun!"

    Gu Ruoyun was in the midst of cultivation in the Secret Order's disciples' chambers when someone called her name. Just as she opened her eyes, the door to the chambers was pushed open and she saw a green-robed Yun Yan rushing in frantically.

    Gu Ruoyun looked at the anxious Yun Yan as she raised her brow.

    However, with this one action, Yun Yan's body stiffened and he immediately cried out in confusion, "Leader..."

    Only the heavens know how reluctant he was to address her in this manner but he had no other choice. It was his own fault for losing to this woman and making such a promise!

    The members of the Secret Order have always kept to their word so no matter how proud he was, he could never go back on his promise.

    "Is something wrong?" Gu Ruoyun's eyes swept towards Yun Yan's nervous expression as she asked indifferently.

    "Oh, it's like this." Yun Yan calmed himself down and said, "Leader, I'm afraid that your claim to the inheritance is in danger and I'm here to inform you of this matter."

    Hearing this, Gu Ruoyun's heart thumped instantly. She then furrowed her brows and asked, "Did something happen in the Secret Order again? Is someone trying to challenge me again?"

    "This is far more complicated than just a challenge." Yun Yan eyed Gu Ruoyun cautiously before he continued, "Leader, I heard that the Clan Leader has issued an order that they would be selecting the heir to the inheritance once again."

    Gu Ruoyun's heart instantly sank to an all-time low. She could not relax her furrowed brow and her elegant features were filled with a cold and distant air. Her expression was indifferent as she said, "It seems that the Secret Order has a fondness for going back on their word."

    This statement caused an embarrassed look to appear on Yun Yan's proud face. "I don't know what's going on. According to the order, only the person who can tame the clan's Sacred Beast will be allowed to accept the inheritance. Even though I don't know the truth behind all this, I understand that the Secret Order has always kept their word. If the Clan Leader has issued such an order, something must have inevitably happened in the Secret Order."

    Gu Ruoyun smiled lightly. "Since this inheritance belongs to the Secret Order, it doesn't matter how many times you do a reselection. That's your business. Of course, this doesn't mean that I will give up the inheritance!"

    Yun Yan felt embarrassed as he stared at Gu Ruoyun. He wished to say something but he did not know what. In the end, he could only silently walk away.

    Prior to this, he would probably have rejoiced when he heard about the reselection. However, he had pledged his loyalty to Gu Ruoyun with full sincerity after being defeated by her. Hence, he now felt a faint sense of dissatisfaction towards the Secret Order's decision.

    Still, he was only a disciple so how could he determine the Clan Leader's decision? Therefore, no matter how unsatisfied he felt, he had no choice but to suppress it.

    ...

    In the Clan Leader's chambers, Elder Tianren looked at the old woman, who had her eyes closed in meditation, and asked puzzledly, "Clan Leader, aren't we assessing the Gu girl? Why did you suddenly decide on selecting a new heir to the inheritance?"

    The Clan Leader laughed bitterly and opened her eyes. She then shook her head exasperatedly, "This was not my idea, it was the Sacred Beast's decision."

    "The Sacred Beast?" Elder Tianren's eyes widened instantly when he heard this. He stared at the Clan Leader's elderly face in astonishment as he asked, "Clan Leader, what did you say? Had the Sacred Beast finally spoken to you?"

    The Clan Leader gently closed her eyes. After a long paused, she opened them again and replied in a faint voice, "I don't understand what the Sacred Beast is thinking either. It had communicated with me through its soul last night and gave me several instructions. As for what it plans to do, I'm not too sure! Besides, in the Secret Order, only the Sacred Lady is allowed to communicate with the Sacred Beast without any hindrance. Since the Sacred Lady is away, I'm not too sure of what the Sacred Beast is trying to convey."
