1554 The Underworlds Restricted Area 2

    After a long pause, she opened her eyes and exhaled before exclaiming, "The refined and exceptional state are indeed at completely different levels. Both hold vastly different powers. Now that I've finally broken through to the refined state, I'm one step closer to becoming a powerful cultivator."

    Ten years ago, when she had reincarnated into the West Spirit Mainland, becoming a Martial Honor was considered to be the most powerful existence to her at the time.

    Later on, she understood the meaning behind the phrase 'however perfect things may seem, better ones will appear'. To a truly powerful cultivator, forget about becoming a Martial Honor, even a Martial Saint who could shout at the wind and clouds does not count for much!

    Only when one has reached the refined state could they be considered to have truly begun their journey toward becoming a great cultivator!

    Just then, footsteps sounded from outside the door. Just as Gu Ruoyun was mulling over the identity of her visitor, a luxuriant and lily-white hand pushed the door open.

    The woman who had walked into the room was dressed in yellow robes. Her light yellow robes gave her an aristocratic air while her fair, jade-like face carried a faint smile. Her figure emitted an aura with the smell of books, giving off neither a superficial nor intense sensation. It was a state which was as tranquil as water.

    As Gu Ruoyun was surveying the woman in yellow, she had also been scrutinizing Gu Ruoyun in return.

    It goes without saying that when Huang Ying had laid eyes upon Gu Ruoyun, her gaze flashed with astonishment. The woman before her does not possess a beauty which could send countries into chaos. At the most, she was delicate and pretty. However, the mesmerizing thing about her was that chilly yet aloof temperament she holds!

    A temperament like this gave off an indifferent, unselfish sensation.

    No wonder the Young Master had fallen for her.

    "Are you Gu Ruoyun?" Huang Ying smiled gently. "This can be considered our first meeting. Please accept this dagger as my gift to you for this occasion."

    Gu Ruoyun looked at the dagger which Huang Ying had placed in front of her and a sense of astonishment flashed in her eyes.

    A high-class spiritual weapon?

    Indeed, the inner workings of the Underworld could not be compared to other organizations. Even the Eldest Lady of the Underworld could gift someone with a high-class spiritual weapon whenever she wished.

    Of course, Gu Ruoyun was unaware that Huang Ying had made a huge investment in order to entice her. After all, she only has two high-class spiritual weapons in her possession.

    Unfortunately, she was fated to have her efforts go to wast...

    Based on Gu Ruoyun's power, a high-class spiritual weapon was not worth her attention. If she wanted to, she could turn an average weapon into a high-class spiritual weapon whenever she wishes.

    Therefore, Gu Ruoyun merely looked at the dagger but made no further reaction.

    "Lady Gu, don't you like it?" Huang Ying felt shocked when she noticed the lack of reaction on Gu Ruoyun's face.

    This woman had clearly been shocked when she saw the dagger which meant that she knew that this was a high-class spiritual weapon. However, why was she not accepting such an enticing present?

    "As the saying goes, no one comes to the Hall of Trinity without a reason. Speak freely, why have you come to see me?" Gu Ruoyun turned towards Huang Ying and calmly remarked, "Besides, you haven't told me your name so I don't know who you are either."

    Huang Ying looked rather embarrassed. How could she have forgotten that the woman before her has absolutely no idea who she was?

    She took a deep breath at the thought of this and said, "Lady Gu, I'm the daughter of the Underworld's Palace Lord, Huang Ying. I mean you no harm with my visit today. I merely want to be friends with you."

    The daughter of the Underworld's Palace Lord?

    Gu Ruoyun looked at the yellow-robed woman with interest before the corners of her lips curled into a thin smile.

    "Xiao Ye had mentioned you before, he says that you want to marry him?"

    Huang Ying looked even more embarrassed. She did not expect Gu Ruoyun to point this matter out so straightforwardly. Furthermore, Gu Ruoyun's tone of speaking had not shown any signs of condemnation.
