The Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Ice Crystal?

The entire room fell silent as they heard these words.

"Ahem." The Palace Lord cleared his throat and replied in a frail voice, "The Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Ice Crystal is the township treasure of the Amethyst Underworld Palace. I've had it brought over from afar in order to use it to preserve my corpse after I've passed on. If you need it, Lady Gu, I can loan it to you for a while but I will need it back after you're done."

Elder Da's expression changed. He wanted to speak but was suddenly reminded of the debt of gratitude he owed Gu Ruoyun for saving the Palace Lord. Hence, he swallowed his words.

"Then I thank you greatly."

A sincere smile slowly brought warmth to her clear and cold eyes. Gu Ruoyun had never imagined that this mission would be resolved so easily.

The delicate-looking youth did not say a word. He fixed his clear, limpid eyes upon Gu Ruoyun with a gaze filled with absolute gratitude.

If it wasn't for them, Father might already be dead. Also, to the Amethyst Underworld Palace, one Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Ice Crystal was nothing when compared to Father's life.

...

After obtaining the Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Ice Crystal, Gu Ruoyun decided to return to the Dongfang family home. However, just as she stepped out from the gates of the Amethyst Underworld Palace, a figure appeared before her and addressed her respectfully, "Lady Gu, our Elder has extended an invitation for you to be our guest."

"Who is your Elder?" Gu Ruoyun frowned and asked.

"My Elder is the Honorable Sir Tianqi of the Spirit Sect."

The Honorable Sir Tianqi?

Gu Ruoyun was stunned. How had that guy found out that I was at the Amethyst Underworld Palace? Also, why had he come looking for me in such a rush?

"Alright, lead the way," She frowned and replied calmly.

Even if the Honorable Sir Tianqi knew about my departure from the Banished Lands, he wouldn't send another person to intercept me at the Amethyst Underworld Palace. Usually, he would visit me at the Dongfang family home.

As such, Gu Ruoyun had no idea on what was going on in the Spirit Sect.

Could it be that something has happened to Big Brother?

Gu Ruoyun's heart clenched at the thought. Even her footsteps quickened.

In this world, besides Xia Linyu, her only other brother was Gu Shengxiao! Hence, she would never allow any harm to come to him no matter what.

...

At a laboratory in the Spirit Sect, an elder examined the herbs in his hand as he furrowed and relaxed his brows over and over again. This scared the people around him from approaching him, afraid that the old man had gone into another random fit of madness and would unleash his anger upon them.

As this moment, a disciple of the Spirit Sect hurriedly walked in and announced respectfully, "Elder Tianqi, Lady Gu has arrived. She's waiting or you outside the Spirit Sect."

"What?"

The Honorable Sir Tianqi's face lit up with glee. Ignoring the herbs in his hands, he immediately threw them behind him before his elderly figure rushed out as swiftly as the wind.

In a large courtyard.

Her hair fluttered under a refreshing breeze.

The woman stood with her hands crossed. Dressed in green, she looked like a slender bamboo tree, unyielding and steadfast. Her eyes, however, were clear and cool, like something straight out of a portrait.

This woman did not have looks that could devastate nations but her features were exquisite and very easy on the eyes.

Perhaps having noticed the elder rushing towards her, the woman gently raised her eyes and lightly cocked an eyebrow. She spoke with a smile that did not reach her eyes, "Honorable Sir Tianqi, why have you summoned me in such a hurry? You've even sent someone to escort me from the Amethyst Underworld Palace."

The Honorable Sir Tianqi chuckled and rubbed his fists, "Little girl, I'm your great-uncle after all. Your maternal grandmother is my younger sister. Why are you still addressing me as the Honorable Sir Tianqi?"
