Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The little maiden has taken a liking towards Gu Ruoyun. Furthermore, the latter had promised to teach her medicine so the little maiden certainly does not wish for anything to happen to her.
Gu Ruoyun gently patted the little maiden's arm but did not console her. She then turned with a half smile in her eyes towards the Leader of the bandits. No one had sensed the accumulation of murderous intent in her eyes.
"Hmph!" The Leader of the bandits scoffed icily. His entire face hardened fiercely as he said, "What would a bumpkin like you know about today's world? Martial Kings are now at the top of the food chain in our world. Those ranks that you've just mentioned are in the past now. Do you think that after reading a few books, you can understand how the few cultivators on the mainland are ranked outside of the village? What a joke! If it hadn't been for the fact that I do not want to live my life being fawned over, I would never have come to place like this! My reputation on this mainland is something that none of you could ever imagine! I only need to show myself before the eyes of the world and those who wish to be my apprentices would cling onto me and refuse to let go! Many on this mainland are cracking their heads to find ways to become my disciple! It's just that I've yet to be impressed by anyone so I haven't accepted anyone as my disciple."
Gu Ruoyun could not help but admire this Bandit Leader for his ability to play pretend up to this degree. This was a form of technique too!
"What? Are you too shocked to reply?" the Bandit Leader scoffed complacently at the sight of the flabbergasted Gu Ruoyun who was at a loss for words.
To him, anyone who has heard of his high prestige would be so shocked that they would pee in their pants. They would then worship him like a deity. This was how he had managed to trick his little henchmen.
Of course, the reason why he had been made Bandit Leader was largely due to his powers as a Martial King.
"No," Gu Ruoyun said as she shook her head. "I was merely admiring your imagination and your eloquence in talking non-stop."
How could the Bandit Leader fail to hear the disdain in her words? His expression changed instantly and he glared at her fiercely. "Little girl, are you refusing to comply with my words? Alright then! Step forward. I'll give you a taste of a Martial King's powers!"
Gu Ruoyun curled her lips into a small smile and was just about to step forward when a hand reached out from behind her and held her in a tight grip.
"Nian Ye." Qin Hao's honest and good-natured face showed a sense of anxiety, even the tone of his voice has changed. "Don't go over there! He really does have great power. You're no match for him."
Gu Ruoyun patted Qin Hao's hand and smiled gently. The resolution in her clear and cold eyes was solid and unyielding like a rock. "The Wind Fall City has taken care of me for such a long time," she replied in a deep voice. "This time, it's my turn to repay you for your kindness."
After saying her piece, she pushed Qin Hao's large, coarse hand away with one swift move. She then turned to face the Bandit Leader.
Qin Hao was shocked as he stared dazedly at Gu Ruoyun who was approaching the Bandit Leader. However, his gaze soon slowly filled with determination.
Nian Ye is a guest of the Wind Fall Village. No matter what, I cannot let any harm befall my guest!
At that moment, he only has one thing on his mind. The hands which he had once used to wrestle a wild beast slowly clenched unconsciously. His masculine features gradually filled with resolve.
Gu Ruoyun looked at the Bandit Leader and smiled. "So, can you now give me a taste of a Martial King's power? Honestly speaking, I haven't felt the extent of a Martial King's power for a long time now."
She was telling the truth when she said that.
