    Gu Ruoyun gently curled the corners of her lips as she watched the scene before her while an almost undetectable light flashed across her cool eyes. However, no one could figure out what she was thinking when she looked at the Regional King's eyes.

    "Apologize!"

    When he noticed that Su Lin was not responding, the Regional King's expression sank as he berated her once again, "Apologize to her immediately!"

    Su Lin's tender figure quivered as if this was the first time the Regional King has ever spoken to her so angrily. She bit her lips as she shot Gu Ruoyun a hateful and unwilling glare!

    "I'm sorry!"

    Under the Regional King's cold and grim gaze, Su Lin finally spat her apology out reluctantly. However, her eyes were filled with humiliation while the hatred and venom in her eyes deepened.

    Gu Ruoyun, my father scolded me for the first time today because of you. One day, I will pay you back for all the humiliation I've suffered today!

    Su Lin took a deep breath at the thought of this as she balled her hands into tight fists at her side. Her nails dug deeply into her palm until thin trickles of blood flowed out. However, she did not seem to notice the pain.

    "There's no need to apologize."

    Gu Ruoyun smiled airily under Su Lin's angry glare as she replied, "Regional King, I've disturbed you enough and I won't disrupt your peace and quiet any longer. Farewell."

    She had not needed to hear Su Lin's apology.

    In fact, it was useless even if Su Lin had apologized!

    Gu Ruoyun would never forgive her!

    Also, how was this apology any different from no apology at all? Do not judge the situation simply because the Regional King was shielding her on the surface. In reality, Gu Ruoyun knows very well that this man was indeed very annoyed with her! However, he had acted on account of saving Zuo Shangchen's Master's face.

    In reality, the Regional King had another reason for shieling Gu Ruoyun as well, that was the Ancient Divine Pagoda in her hands! If Gu Ruoyun were to leave the Regional King's Mansion, it would not be so easy for him to obtain the Ancient Divine Pagoda!

    This was the true reason why he had forced Su Lin to apologize!

    "Lady Gu!" The Regional King frowned as he blocked Gu Ruoyun's way. "I've already asked Su Lin to apologize. If there's anything that you're still not happy with, please let me know and I will do what I can to fulfill your wishes. As a guest in the Regional King's Mansion, I won't allow you to suffer any grief."

    His words sounded so reasonable and fair that it would be difficult for anyone to reject his offer.

    Unfortunately, in the face of the Regional King's good intentions, Gu Ruoyun maintained her cool and indifferent smile while her eyes were like an ancient well with no sign of movement.

    "There's no need, it's inconvenient for me to stay in the Regional King's Mansion. Let's go, Fourth Prince."

    Hearing this, Zuo Shangchen shrugged his shoulders as he followed Gu Ruoyun out. His peach blossom and peerless features had carried a puzzling smile the entire time.

    "Lady Gu!"

    The Regional King was mildly incensed.  This little girl really doesn't know what's good for her. I've already lowered my status and she still insists on leaving! She's looking down at the Regional King's Mansion! Also, I've even excoriated my most precious Lin'er because of her. What more does she want?

    The more he thought about this, the angrier he felt. However, he did not let it show on his face and continued to display a mild and courteous manner.

    "If there's anything that you need, you may let me know. If you leave just like that, I'm afraid that many in the Heavenly Moon Empire will believe that I had been thoughtless in hosting you as my guest. It would certainly draw a lot of talk from others. If you stay, I can lock Lin'er away until you've completed your task!"

    Su Lin was in a daze and she could only stare disbelievingly at the Regional King while her eyes filled with questions.
