He didn’t like her current appearance. She should be blooming splendidly like the Snow Goddess Flower on Heavenly Palace Cliff, never to wither in storms or winter.
He had protected her in secret before, but somebody else had plucked her in the end.
He wouldn’t make the same mistake again.
“Don’t worry, you’ll be better soon.” Gu Yunjing touched her forehead, intense affection in his eyes.
However, Gu Bailu didn’t see it because his hand was blocking her.
“You’re here to save me?” Gu Bailu hadn’t expected Shao Di to come to her rescue.
So, somebody would come to her rescue, after all.
“I invited you here.”
Gu Bailu coughed. “I released Yin Neng.”
Although she hadn’t gone to Ice Mist Peak willingly, it was undeniable that Yin Neng had escaped along with her.
Also, the man was indeed a huge problem.
Gu Yunjing smiled. “Don’t you have him under control? There are plenty of ways to lock him up again.”
“No… I don’t want to be locked up again!” Yin Neng shouted in agitation.
The cracks in his bones were still spreading out, making him look even creepier.
Gu Bailu ignored him. Such an arrogant and foolhardy man didn’t deserve her sympathy.
However, there was someone she couldn’t leave alone. After a brief hesitation, she pulled on Gu Yunjing’s sleeve and begged, “Can you help me save the man in black?”
Gu Yunjing’s face darkened. “No.”
“He saved me just now. If it wasn’t for him, your guest would have been killed by your subordinates, which would’ve been a slap in your face… Cough…” Gu Bailu coughed in her anxiety.
“Bai Ling, save him.” Gu Yunjing covered her mouth before she finished.
Gu Bailu smiled feebly at him. “You’re a good guy, Shao Di.”
Gu Yunjing scoffed. “You didn’t thank me for saving you, but you’re praising me for saving an outsider?”
Bai Ling went over to the man in black and gave him a pill, before grabbing him. “Who are you?”
The man in black realized that he was restrained after he opened his eyes, but he didn’t panic. “Release me.”
Bai Ling was about to take off his mask, when the man in black gripped his hand. “You don’t want to find out who I am.”
“Bai Ling, let him go.”
Bai Ling returned to Gu Yunjing unwillingly.
Holding Gu Bailu in his arms, Gu Yunjing sat in a chair. “Whoever was involved, step out.”
Despite their fear, nobody dared to disobey him.
The disciples all stepped forward.
Gu Yunjing looked at Gu Bailu. “Take a look. Are they all here?”
Gu Bailu furrowed her brow. “How are you going to deal with them?”
“How do you want to deal with them?” Gu Yunjing asked back. Was she silly enough to beg on their behalf?
“You can let them go, but if you want to punish them, destroy their spiritual power.”
If they were released, they probably wouldn’t hate her.
But as punishment, she had to make sure that they would never look for trouble with her again.
“Let’s do that.” Gu Yunjing gave the order before flying to the main peak not far away from the square with Gu Bailu.
