Gu Shengxiao's entire face was full of exasperation.
It was a good thing that Dongfang Yu did not say anything else. She sent Gu Shengxiao a meaningful smile before she turned around and left.
Gu Shengxiao watched Dongfang Yu as she left and heaved a sigh of relief. A bitter smile then formed on his face.
"Once little sister returns, I will definitely need to find my life partner to prevent my mother from nagging me all the time..."
After mumbling to himself, he sat down cross-legged and continued to cultivate.
The next day.
Gu Ruoyun stepped out from her room and saw Wen Yue who had been waiting outside the door. She was stunned as she raised her brow and asked, "The person you should be waiting for is my big brother."
Wen Yue pursed her lips and lifted her head to look at Gu Ruoyun before asking, "Can I come with you to save that man?"
"Give me one good reason."
"I want to help Big Brother Gu." Wen Yue lowered her eyelids and replied, "That person you're going to save should be very important to Big Brother Gu so, I'd like to help him too..."
"Mm, they are sworn brothers who have been through life and death."
Zuo Shangchen had once told her that Gu Shengxiao and he had made a life and death pact. This was the type of relationship that no one could interfere with. Only when they have experienced a life or death situation would they be able to make a life and death friendship pact!
Gu Shengxiao was a straight man. He does not love Zuo Shangchen but Zuo Shangchen has always held the place of a good and important friend in his heart!
"May I come with you?"
Wen Yue blinked and stared at Gu Ruoyun with anticipation.
Gu Ruoyun shook her head. "Are you certain that you can journey to the Deserted Snowlands and not become a burden based on your current level of power?"
Wen Yue's heart clenched instantly when she heard this and her face filled wtih agony.
She knows that she was not powerful enough. Otherwise, she would not have been so powerless to help Gu Shengxiao...
"If you want to help him, it will be crucial for you to increase your power. Power is the only thing that can help him."
Gu Ruoyun's eyes landed upon Wen Yue's face.
Honestly speaking, she has a good feeling about Wen Yue. Wen Yue had helped Gu Shengxiao twice and had even decided to marry a man she does not love for his sake.
Most importantly, she had not asked for any form of repayment after she had helped Gu Shengxiao.
What kind of love would cause a woman to willingly give up a lifetime of her own happiness for the sake of a man?
Wen Yue clenched her fists tightly as her eyes filled with determination. "Thank you, I know what I should do now. I have to raise my power, only then can I stay by his side and help him."
Wen Yue then smiled at Gu Ruoyun in gratitude before turning to leave the rear courtyard.
Gu Ruoyun watched Wen Yue leave before she turned towards the man by her side and said, "This fellow is certainly very good at courting peach blossoms. First it was Zuo Shangchen, now it's Wen Yue. More importantly, they have helped him and never asked for anything in return."
Qianbei Ye raised his brow and pulled Gu Ruoyun into his arms.
"You're the same."
Could it be that this woman has no idea about how many admirers she has?
"Xiao Ye, it's getting late and we should head out. Let me say goodbye to my parents and we'll leave this place."
Gu Ruoyun yawned and headed towards the great hall.
However, she bumped into her parents before she could reach the great hall.
"Yun'er." Dongfang Yu saw Gu Ruoyun who had appeared in front of her and quickly stepped forward, "Are you leaving?" 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
