1496 The Underworlds Protector Pays A Visit 1

    Su Lin had immediately noticed Gu Ruoyun when she walked out of the forest. A sinister light flashed in her eyes but she kept quiet. Instead, she scoffed and disappeared into the opporite direction.

    No one noticed a murderous intent which had appeared in Su Lin's eyes when she had left.

    "Everyone, the elimination round has ended. Those who have successfully passed may return to get some rest! Report back to the Heavenly Moon Empire's Imperial Palace in three days. We will begin the second round of the competition then."

    An old man was standing amongst the crowd as he instructed in a steady tone.

    Once he had made his announcement, the crowd dispersed. Their experiences over the past seven days had made them very tired. They really did need to go home to get a good rest.

    "Xiao Yun'er." Zuo Shangchen paused as he watched the dispersing crowd of geniuses before he slowly turned around. His eyes landed upon Gu Ruoyun as he continued, "I won't be able to join the next part of the competition so whether we manage to obtain the Moon Soul Herb... Rests upon your shoulders."

    "That's alright."

    Gu Ruoyun nodded and a somber look appeared in her eyes.

    She has to obtain the Moon Soul Herb no matter what. Only the Moon Soul Herb can save Gu Shengxiao...


    Gu Ruoyun did not expect to receive an unexpected visitor upon returning to her guest house in the Heavenly Moon Empire.

    Standing in front of her was a woman dressed in white robes. The woman's eyes were chilly and the top of her brows carried a faintly arrogant air. She even sized up Gu Ruoyun from head to toe before asking, "Are you Gu Ruoyun?"

    Gu Ruoyun furrowed her brows as she stroked the little fellow in her arms with her finger. Her tone was aloof and calm as she replied, "That's right, I'm Gu Ruoyun. May I ask what business does the Left Protector of the Underworld have with me?"

    "I've heard about your performance in the Evil Spirit Forest! I also know that you're a genius at the late-stage of the exceptional state! I'm here to discuss a deal with you."

    The Left Protector tried her best to speak in a warm and relaxed tone, "Out of the many geniuses in this contest, you have the best chance to obtain the title of the champion! Hence, the deal I'd like to make with you is that once you've been named as the champion, trade the Moon Spirit Herb with me. As a reward, I will allow you to join the Underworld as our disciple!"

    After all, there were countless geniuses on this mainland who wishes to join the Underworld. Unfortunately, the Underworld has never tried to recruit disciples from the outside world. Therefore, these people would never be able to find out the location of the Underworld, not to mention joining the Underworld!

    This was why the Left Protector believed that this woman would never reject such an enticing condition!

    "I'm sorry." As the Left Protector was filled with confidence, Gu Ruoyun calmly replied, "My objective in joining this competition is also for the sake of the Moon Soul Herb. Hence, if I'm named as the champion, I won't give the Moon Soul Herb to anyone."

    The Left Protector's expression stiffened as if she never expected Gu Ruoyun to reject her proposal so boldly.

    Her expression turned a little uglier at the thought of this. "Little girl, are you aware what kind of place the Underworld is? It's a territory that even the Emperor of Heavenly Moon Empire would have to give way to. To become a disciple of the Underworld is an existence which will bring honor to your ancestors! Perhaps you detest the lowly position of an average disciple. How about this, if you agree to my request, I will take you in as my disciple! This is the best condition that I can promise you!"
