Gu Ruoyun nodded gently. “Mother, I’ll be back soon.”
“Alright.” Dongfang Yu smiled tenderly. “I have absolute confidence in your powers. I’ll wait here for you to return.”
As Gu Ruoyun stared into the woman’s gentle and beautiful features, she wanted to say something more but decided not to do so in the end. She took one last look at her parents and turned to leave the residence.
Soon, she disappeared from view.
“Yu’er,” Grand Lord Hong Lian pulled Dongfang Yu into his arms. “Don’t worry, our daughter’s powers have grown so much. Besides, Xiao Ye is also with her. The two of them can’t possibly run into any issues.”
Dongfang Yu nodded but her eyes continued to stare at the direction of Gu Ruoyun’s departure.She did not turn away at all…
It was necessary to go through a large mountain first to get to the Deserted Snowlands.
At this moment on the mountain, several women were picking medicinal herbs and putting them into the wicker baskets on their backs.
Based on their robes, one could tell that these women must be from a nearby village. They were taking advantage of the abundant medicinal herbs in the large mountain and decided to pick a few herbs to sell at a nearby town before it got dark.
A woman was holding a little girl who looked to be around three years old by the hand. The little girl has delicate and adorable features. The only flaw was the freckles scattered on her face.
“Que’er, don’t fidget.”
The woman noticed that the girl was reaching out to pick a medicinal herb and quickly pulled her back.“You’ll damage the medicinal herbs. By then, I won’t be able to sell them for money.”
The other women saw the little maiden’s adorable little features and could not help but burst into laughter.
“Que’er’s mother, Que’er can already differentiate between medicinal herbs and weeds at such a young age. Perhaps you can let her learn medicine and she may even become an expert.”
When Que’er’s mother heard this, an exasperated smile appeared on her face. “If she’s to learn medicine, she needs a Master to teach her. The money needed for this is no small amount. If my Que’er can pick herbs like me, at least she can stay full and need not feel hungry.”
Just as the women were chatting, a green-robed figure slowly descended from the sky.
It was a delicate, pretty and pristine-looking woman. She has an aloof and noble aura and one could not help but feel mesmerized by it. By her side was a peerless-looking and beautiful man with silver hair and crimson robes. His looks could send all living things into a frenzy. He stood next to her with both arms crossed above his chest while his demonic red eyes gazed tenderly and lovingly at the green-robed woman.
“Fairy sister and fairy brother.”
When the freckled little maiden saw the two mesmerizing figures, she immediately waved her hands and smiled sweetly.
Gu Ruoyun lowered her head to look at the little maiden’s freckled little face. A sense of absent-mindedness flashed in her eyes as her thoughts slowly gravitated back to a few years ago, back to that little village which had been drenched in blood.
“This little girl has a natural gift for medicine.”
Gu Ruoyun lifted her hand to stroke the little maiden’s head as she smiled gently.
“Que’er’s mother, I told you that Que’er has talent in medicine but you did not believe me. Look, even this outstanding maiden has said it as well.” One of the women stared enviously at Que’er’s mother.
Gu Ruoyun and Qianbei Ye had descended from the sky. Therefore, they had determined that the couple were powerful cultivators.
A powerful cultivator like this was enough to receive the admiration of a normal citizen for a lifetime!
They would believe anything that these cultivators said without a doubt.
