The woman in the pink dress sighed. She looked at Gu Xijiu and asked, "Miss, can you let her go if I request it?"
Gu Xijiu raised her eyebrow, "Who are you?"
"We are the disciples of the Tianwen clan. My master is Count Xiaoyao. I am his first disciple Le Jiajun. She is my sister Tan Xiaoge." The woman in pink introduced all of them.
Tan Xiaoge suddenly felt proud. They were the disciples of the elders in the Tianwen clan and were quite famous in this continent. Especially Le Jiajun, as she was a pharmacist and was very good at healing. She was ranked second just after Gu Xixi.
Tan Xiaoge thought that she would be released after their prestigious identities were revealed. She even expected Gu Xijiu to apologize to them. However, Gu Xijiu did not buy it, "I dont know all of you. If you want to save her, please leave. I want to clear the field!"
She reacted differently from what Tan Xiaoge had thought. Everyone held their breath and felt nervous. It was probably the first time the woman in pink got embarrassed in public. She helplessly looked at the gentleman in silk clothing, "Prince Long"
She expected him to come forward and command the bounty hunters to give Gu Xijiu a lesson. Prince Long stared at Gu Xijiu and said, "I am Count Xiaoyao, my name is Long Moyan. May I know your name?"
Gu Xijiu shook her head, "I just want to clear the field and do not need to tell you my name!" Her voice was cold and soft but firm, "I have limited patience so I'll count to three and if you still do not want to leave, I will kill her!"
It was probably the first time Tan Xiaoge got embarrassed too. She was furious and stared at the several bounty hunters, "Are you all blind? Why dont you all give her a lesson? I am sure we can beat her down with so many of us here!"
The bounty hunters were the most rebellious ones, and they admired strong people. They did not like to gang fight, especially with a little girl!
Shan Qing spoke coldly, "We will start to fight with her only if you are killed."
Tan Xiaoge remained silent.
Prince Long looked at the Ice Shura Flowers at the cliff not far away. There were around 30 to 40 plants on the cliff. Usually, these plants grew sporadically, and it was rare to see such a quantity at one place.
He smiled and tried to negotiate with Gu Xijiu, "Miss, it was our fault just now. I apologize to you." Then, he took up his sleeve and bowed.
Gu Xijiu raised her eyebrow and looked at him but did not speak.
Prince Long continued, "I have observed that there are more than 30 plants on the cliff. Normally, it requires only two plants to make medicine. I think you may not need to use so many of them, right?"
Gu Xijiu smiled and said only three words, "Hard to tell."
In fact, she did not need that much, and it could be split into two portions for both parties. However, it was them who wanted to clear the field just now, and they were too rude to her.
Prince Long choked and felt that this girl was asking for too much. However, she could act like this because of her powers. He also understood that it was Tan Xiaoge who treated her rudely earlier. Her actions were probably revenge-seeking.
He paused for a moment, then offered some terms to Gu Xijiu, "Miss, there is something strange about this plant. It needs to be refined immediately once it is plucked or else it will lose its effectiveness. There are beasts guarding them, and once you start plucking them, they will attack you. Therefore, even if you can pluck the plants by yourself, you will miss the best timing to refine them. Why not you cooperate with us? We can split the plants - 30 percent and 70 percent. You will get 70 percent, and we will get 30 percent. Besides this, you have us to guard beside you when you refine the medicine. What do you think about this proposal?"
