1598 The Clan Leaders Request 2

    "Lady Gu, Sir Qianbei."

    Lan Ge, who had been chatting with the Clan Elder, quickly rose to his feet when he saw Gu Ruoyun. His eyes were warm as he said, "I really want to thank you for this time. If it had not been for you, the Dragon Clan would never have recognized me. Now, I've received the Dragon Clan's approval and my mother can finally be at peace."

    When he thought about his long departed parents, Lan Ge's heart sank and the joy in his eyes disappeared.

    Gu Ruoyun gently nodded at Lan Ge before turning her eyes towards the Clan Leader. "What do you wish to discuss by summoning us here?"

    "Lady Gu, I've heard that you want to have the Ancient Dragon's physical body?" The Clan Leader fell silent for a moment. "That Ancient Dragon was once the king of our Dragon Clan and had passed on due to some accident. We don't know where his spirit has gone and all that's left is his physical body! We've carefully hidden his physical body away all these years but we really have no use for it. If you have need of it, Lady Gu, I can loan it to you on a temporary basis."

    The Clan leader had said 'loan' and not 'give'.

    After all, the Dragon King was still a symbol of faith to the Dragon Clan!

    "Alright," Gu Ruoyun nodded. "I will loan his body for a while, and will return it in the end."

    "Furthermore, Lady Gu, I'd like to ask for your help." The Clan Leader's voice deepened. "You should know that the Dragon Clan is now facing a grave danger. Even though my health has been restored, I can't defeat so many humans. This time, the chief culprit who has stepped forward to cause trouble for our Dragon Clan isn't the Wen family!"

    Gu Ruoyun raised her brow and waited for the next part of the Clan Leader's explanation.

    "The Wen family is only helping that person to do his dirty work. I don't know who he is, all I know is that he comes from the Dark Earth Realm!"

    The Dark Earth Realm!

    Those three words echoed in Gu Ruoyun's heart and caused it to tremble.

    Since the Three-Headed Hell Dragon has been imprisoned by Qianbei Ye, it was only logical that everyone else could now leave the Dark Earth Realm.

    However, she could not figure out who it was who has come to cause trouble for the Dragon Clan...

    "Therefore, Lady Gu, I'd like to ask for your help! That powerful cultivator has brought along too many humans. Other than the Wen family, there are other forces involved as well. Without your help, Lady Gu, the Dragon Clan will be destroyed very quickly! If it had not been for the fact that they have no way of entering the North Sea, I'm afraid that the Dragon Clan would have been eradicated long ago. Hence, they had taken advantage of my outing to poison me and force me into serving him!"

    Gu Ruoyun fell silent.

    If the Clan Leader had used the Dragon King's body to threaten her, she would certainly refuse to help and would have snatched the Dragon King's body straightaway!

    However, he had loaned the Dragon King's body to her first before asking for her help.

    The order of events was different so, naturally, the result would be different as well.

    "Alright, I can stay back and help you." Gu Ruoyun fell silent for a moment before she raised her head as her eyes filled with determination. "However, you must understand that since I had saved you, you must give the Dragon King's body to me. This is a transactional process and I don't owe the Dragon Clan anything so my willingness to help you is only for Lan Ge's sake. He's my subordinate and I can't just sit idly by when it comes to matters which concern him!"

    Lan Ge's heart shook as his blue eyes stared at Gu Ruoyun's determined yet confident features. However, his feelings were mixed.

    How could anyone not believe in anyone like her?

    It was likely that in this lifetime, he was extremely fortunate to have met her.

    She was the one who has changed his life!
