1537 The Dust Settles 4

    Gu Ruoyun gently pursed her lips as she slowly turned around to gaze upon the man's peerless features. Her eyes no longer carried her previously chilly air and were showing an indescribable feeling.

    "I would like to know how your life was after you had arrived in the Dark Earth Realm. Furthermore, what's the story behind the Three-Headed Hell Dragon? According to my big brother, it mentioned that you have many enemies in the Dark Earth Realm. If that was the case, how had you received the position of the Underworld's Young Master?"

    Qianbei Ye smiled, "Yun'er, this matter is very simple. The Underworld was an organization which I had created over ten thousand years ago. Because of my departure, the Underworld has merely changed Masters! However, there're a few old fellows who have lived for ten thousand years in the Underworld. These old fellows had once been my subordinates but they are now reaching the end of their days. To prevent the other organizations from finding out about this, they had used the excuse of closed-door cultivation to hide away. Not even the Underworld's Master is aware that their time was up. He believes that they will still protect the Underworld as they had done in the past."

    Gu Ruoyun was shaken, never in her wildest imagination would she have guessed that Qianbei Ye was the creator of the Underworld.

    "The Three-Headed Hell Dragon was right and I do have many enemies in the Underworld. When some of them had received news of my arrival, they had indeed tried to cause great trouble for me! Hence, those old fellows did not expose my true identity. Not even the Underworld's Master is aware that I'm the creator of the Underworld. He only allowed me to have the title of Young Master and permitted me to enter the Underworld."

    "Xiao Ye, I don't think it would be too difficult to discover your true identity." Gu Ruoyun looked at Qianbei Ye as she said, "Your silver hair is a distinctive feature. Even if you were to hide your true identity, they could determine who you are based on the color of your hair."

    Hearing this, Qianbei Ye laughed in a solemn manner. He then pulled Gu Ruoyun into his arms and rubbed his chin against her head. "Yun'er, ten thousand years ago, very few people had been able to see my true face. The number of people who know of my distinctive features is very little as well. There's no need for you to worry about this! The Three-Headed Hell Dragon had initially allowed me to enter the Dark Earth Realm with the intention of getting the others to help him deal with me. Who would have thought that I would profit from this disaster and enter the Underworld once again?"

    "Where had the Three-Headed Hell Dragon come from?" Gu Ruoyun furrowed her brows as she asked.

    Upon hearing these words, Qianbei Ye fell silent for a few seconds before he smiled. However, that smile does not carry any warmth and was instead filled with an eerie, gloomy air.

    "He had once been my subordinate. Later... He had betrayed me!"

    Gu Ruoyun did not say a word when she sensed the cold and gloomy air from Qianbei Ye. She then stretched out her arms and embraced him tightly.

    "There's one more thing. Xiao Ye, Zhuo Yu had mentioned the Master of the Underworld's daughter, what's that all about?"

    Gu Ruoyun seemed to have remembered something and questioned him as she raised her brows.

    Qianbei Ye's body stiffened all of a sudden and he eyed Gu Ruoyun cautiously, "During my absence over the last ten thousand years, those old fellows had selected a new Master for the Underworld. I, on the other hand, was selected by those old fellows to become the next Master. Hence, the current Master of the Underworld wants to marry his daughter off to me. Yun'er, I can swear to you that ever since I've entered the Underworld, I've only spoken two words to the Master of the Underworld's daughter. I've never had any unnecessary conversations with her. You... Are you angry?"

    Gu Ruoyun gently released herself from Qianbei Ye's embrace and asked with a forced smile, "Oh? What two words did you say to her?"
