1592 Saving A Life 1

    Gu Ruoyun's lips curled into a cold smile in the face of Long Yuan's indirect threat.

    "Since you're accusing me of harming the Clan Leader, may I ask if you can produce the evidence?"

    Evidence?

    Honestly speaking, Long Yuan does not have any physical evidence. If he had the evidence, he would not be acting this way and would have probably ordered the Dragon Clan's powerful cultivators to imprison Gu Ruoyun immediately.

    Hence, he was only slightly startled and smiled coldly when he heard Gu Ruoyun's query. "Long Yan said that you had touched the detoxifying herb. Aside from you humans, who else would do something so utterly heartless? To avoid having to fight with you humans, our Dragon Clan has been forced to live in seclusion in the North Sea. I never thought that you still refused to spare us in the end."

    Long Yuan's voice trembled as he spoke. It was obvious that he thinks that Gu Ruoyun was the Wen family's accomplice.

    "Grandfather!"

    Long Ling'er noticed that her grandfather's words were going excessively overboard and could not help but stomp her foot. She then bit her lip and said, "Previously, when the Wen family members had ambushed us, it was Lady Gu who had saved Long Yan and I. We shouldn't bite the hand that feeds us. If they had been allied with those people, why would they have saved us?"

    Long Yuan fell silent. After a long time, he finally spoke, "If they can produce evidence to prove that they were not responsible for turning the detoxifying herb into poison, I will believe them."

    Even though Long Ling'er was his granddaughter, he does not believe in her words and only thought that Long Ling'er has been deceived.

    Only irrefutable evidence would convince him.

    "You want proof?" Gu Ruoyun curled her lips. "Alright, if I can cure the Clan Leader, it would be enough to prove everything!"

    Cure the Clan Leader?

    The crowd went into a daze upon hearing these words as if they did not think Gu Ruoyun would use this method to prove her innocence.

    "Do you know what you're saying? You're saying that you can cure the Clan Leader? Don't you know that the detoxifying herb from Celestial Dragon Mountain was the only thing which could have cured the Clan Leader's poison? Now, because you've substituted the detoxifying herb, the Clan Leader's condition has worsened. Even if the gods were here, he cannot be saved."

    Before Long Yuan could respond, a white-haired old man had opened his mouth and retorted furiously!

    However, Gu Ruoyun ignored the outburst and only continued to look at Long Yuan.

    Based on her observations, she has determined that Elder Long Yuan was the main decision-maker out of all the other elders in the Dragon Clan.

    He was also Long Ling'er's grandfather.

    "Grandfather." Long Ling'er was worried. Her tender features carried a sense of anxiety as she spoke, "She's Lan Ge's friend and he would never want to hurt the Clan Leader. Perhaps his friend really can save the Clan Leader?"

    "That may not be so."

    Long Yan could no longer tolerate Long Ling'er's stance in protecting Lan Ge and scoffed coldly, "Lan Ge is not recognized by the Dragon Clan so there must be some hatred in his heart towards us. He has the greatest motive to attack the Clan Leader."

    "You..." Long Ling'er clenched her fists tightly as she stared in disappointment at Long Yan. She was so angry that she could not speak.

    She never thought that Long Yan would be someone who would fail to differentiate between right and wrong!

    The Clan Leader was Lan Ge's maternal grandfather so why would Lan Ge hurt the Clan Leader?

    "Alright, be quiet both of you." Long Yuan sent Long Ling'er and Long Yan an icy glare before he turned back to look at Gu Ruoyun. "I've never trusted humans so what makes you think that I would entrust the Clan Leader's life to you so easily?"
