Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-886
Gu Ruoyun nodded and said nothing more.
After that, Grand Lord Hong Lian gave her a few more pieces of advice and
urged her to get a good rest before he left the room. Not long after he
had left, an elderly figure pushed the door open and walked in
“Master, it’s so late. Why have you come to see me?” Gu Ruoyun saw the
upset look in Bai Zhongtian’s gaze and raised an eyebrow as she asked
with a smile which did not reach her eyes.
Bai Zhongtian stared at Gu Ruoyun quietly, “Little girl, why didn’t you
tell me that the Grand Lord Hong Lian was your biological father in your
“You didn’t ask.”
Gu Ruoyun’s mouth twitched as she replied and shrugged her shoulders.
“Fine, fine, I’ll stop being so calculative with you over this matter. By
the way, what’s your next plan?” Bai Zhongtian’s pupils darted back and
forth as a sinister smile formed on his lips.
Gu Ruoyun took one look at the sinister smile on the old man’s face and
asked, “If you have something to say, just say it.”
“Hehe, it’s like this.” Bai Zhongtian rubbed his hands together and
grinned at Gu Ruoyun, “A few days ago, the Sect Master of the Medicine
Sect had discovered an ancient pill formula and he has invited all the
great doctors to study it. I’ve decided to ask you to come along with me.
According to the Sect Master, if anyone can successfully refine the pill
from that pill formula, the Medicine Sect will reward them with one of
Gu Ruoyun shook her head and replied, “I’m not interested.”
“What?” Bai Zhongtian nearly jumped. His mischievous smile turned into a
glare directed towards Gu Ruoyun, “Do you know which territory he’s
offering? It’s the Northern Block Territory! This territory contains
countless treasured medicinal herbs. Even famous medicinal herbs which
are sold at sky-high prices at auctions had been procured from the
Northern Block Territory! However, this Northern Block Territory is
interlaced between all sorts of powerful forces. Hence, the Medicine Sect
had not been able to take care of it very well. This was why they’ve
decided to present it as a reward this time.”
Bai Zhongtian took a deep breath before he continued, “Little Girl, I
believe in your power and with your abilities, we would certainly be able
to unify the Northern Block Territory. Besides, even if you don’t wish to
become the Lord of the Northern Block Territory, you could at least have
the freedom to collect those precious medicinal herbs from the Northern
Block Territory whenever you wish.”
Since the Northern Block Territory belongs to the Medicine Sect, one
would need the Medicine Sect’s approval before one could enter the
Northern Block Territory. Therefore, if one manages to obtain the
Northern Block Territory, they would no longer need the Medicine Sect’s
approval to enter it.
However, there were far too many powerful forces in the Northern Block
Territory. This was the reason why the Medicine Sect had not been able to
fully utilize its resources despite the fact that the land belongs to
“The Northern Block Territory?”
A glint appeared in Gu Ruoyun’s eye.
“When do we leave, Master?”
The Northern Block Territory contains the most abundant amount of
medicinal herbs on the East Peak Mainland. She still requires many rare
medicinal herbs to help heal Yu’er’s arm.
This is why I’m determined to win the Northern Block Territory!
Bai Zhongtian’s eyes sparkled when he heard that Gu Ruoyun had finally
agreed to his request. A grin bloomed on his elderly features like a
blossoming chrysanthemum as he said, “We shall leave tomorrow!”
Gu Ruoyun gently stroked her chin, deep in thought.
Initially, she had intended to break through to the rank of a high-level
Martial Honor before departing from the Drifting Wind Country. However,
it looks like she will have to change her plan. No matter what, the
Medicine Sect’s assembly was far more important! Besides, she was just as
intrigued by the ancient pill formula.
