    The crowd was in a heated discussion along the bustling street.

    Li Jie's eyes turned red as he was surrounded by the crowd and his eyes filled with anger. For anyone who does not know the situation, they would assume that Gu Ruoyun had done something intolerable to him!

    "Get out of the way!"

    Gu Ruoyun furrowed her brows as she commanded.

    After she had spoken, she circled around Li Jie and attempted to leave.

    However, the furious Li Jie has lost any sense of rationality. He grabbed Gu Ruoyun's robe as he scolded angrily, "No, you must apologize to me. If you don't apologize, forget about thinking of leaving this place!"

    Wham!

    Suddenly, a powerful force erupted from Gu Ruoyun's body and flung Li Jie's hand away. Li Jie was shocked by Gu Ruoyun's sudden surge of power when her calm, airy voice rang out once again.

    "In this world, no one is born a genius. If you want to become the center of attention, you won't find it here. You will only gain everyone's attention when you work hard in your cultivation! There's no use for you to hoot and holler here."

    Gu Ruoyun then continued to move forward without looking back after saying her piece.

    Li Jie stared dazedly at the flash of green robes and was unable to return to his senses after a long time.

    This woman had seen right through his intention with one glance!

    She had been right, he wants Gu Ruoyun to become his Master because he wants to catch everyone's eye one day! However, he never really wanted to become her disciple!

    He loves being the center of attention too much.

    If he could become the disciple of such a peerless genius, everyone on the mainland would know about his existence! By then, many beautiful women would rush into his embrace!

    "I think I know who she is."

    The storyteller who had observed Gu Ruoyun's interaction returned to his senses and exclaimed dazedly, "If I'm not mistaken, that woman was Gu Ruoyun!"

    "What?"

    The words 'Gu Ruoyun' sent the crowd into a daze and they stared at the storyteller in disbelief.

    "Are you certain that you've got the right person?" Li Jie sluggishly turned around and gulped, "She... She was Gu Ruoyun?"

    How can this be?

    According to legend, Gu Ruoyun had journeyed to the East Peak Mainland so why would she appear in the relatively mundane Azure Dragon Country?

    "That's right, she was Gu Ruoyun." The story-teller nodded. This time, his voice was full of certainty as he continued, "A good friend of mine once had the good fortune to participate in the War of Gods and Demons. He had seen Gu Ruoyun then and hung a portrait of her in his study. I had seen this portrait when I visited his study. I was just saying that this woman looked very familiar. Now, I remember who she is!"

    Boom!

    The crowd was completely stunned as if they had been struck by lightning.

    Li Jie, who had been standing in Gu Ruoyun's way, was feeling extremely shocked. His heart then filled with regret as if ants were gnawing at it.

    Nevertheless, his regret was not because he had offended Gu Ruoyun. Instead, he was regretful that he did not take advantage of the opportunity to ask her to be his Master!

    If he has such a peerless Master, how much more awe-inspiring authority would he gain from then on?

    "No, I can't leave things like this. I must make her my Master!"

    Li Jie clenched his fists and silently swore as he stared in the direction of Gu Ruoyun's departure.

    ...

    Naturally, Gu Ruoyun, who had left the Imperial City then, was ignorant of the crowd's reaction to her identity.

    At this moment, she had paused on a mountain's peak near the outskirts of the Imperial City. She then turned her gaze into the distance before calmly exclaiming, "Zixie, where's that seal you've mentioned?"
