A light breeze blew and maple leaves fell slowly from the tips of the trees.

Gu Ruoyun had just descended the mountain when a reckless figure barged into her line of sight.
It was a young lady, about sixteen years of age. Her luxurious clothes nicely showcased her perfect body. However, when her gaze made its way to her face, she had no choice but to be disappointed.

The lady’s fair skin was full of freckles, like spot stains on a clean white veil, greatly disrupting the original beauty.

Gu Ruoyun knitted her brows. She searched in her brain and recognized the lady in front of her.

However, before she could even open her mouth, Luo Yin walked hastily in front of her and scanned her from head to toe as if she did not know her.

"Gu Ruoyun, I heard that you will be dueling that rabbit bastard of the Ling family?"
Gu Ruoyun stroked her own wrists and smiled noncommittally.

"News sure travels fast. What? You think I would lose too?"

"Haha!"

Luo Yin laughed loudly while tapping on Gu Ruoyun’s shoulders. "What kind of person are you, Gu Ruoyun? I have said before that your father was the first genius of Azure Dragon Country. Alas, those whom the gods love die young and he passed away at such a young age! But your brother, he’s the current first genius! As the daughter of Gu Tian, the younger sister of Gu Shengxiao, how can you be a good-for-nothing? But, Gu Ruoyun, after being friends for so many years, you kept this secret even from me?"

Right then, word had been spreading like wildfire that Gu Ruoyun had faked her timidity all along to make everybody forget about her. But being Gu Ruoyun’s best and only friend, even she had been kept in the dark for so many years.

When she thought of this, Luo Yin was all sorts of upset.

"Luo Yin." Gu Ruoyun looked at her old friend and hesitated for a while. "I have a favor to ask."

"What?"

"Can you…lend me some gold coins?" Gu Ruoyun was a bit embarrassed to say that out loud.
In her previous life, she was the direct Young Mistress of the Xia family, so she had never fretted over these worldly objects. But because Gu Ruoyun was a good-for-nothing, her monthly allowance was a mere three copper coins. She could not afford to buy herbs.


"Alright, how much do you want?" Luo Yin agreed without even thinking.

Gu Ruoyun thought deeply for a moment, then lifted her head and looked at the freckle-faced Luo Yin steadily. "I need a hundred gold coins! In return, I will give you a reward richer than a hundred gold coins!"

She, Gu Ruoyun, had never liked to be indebted to anyone.

That’s why before she even borrowed money, she had decided to use the Qi Gathering Pills as repayment! The price of these Qi Gathering Pills was much higher than a hundred gold coins!

"A hundred gold coins?"

Luo Yin had initially thought that even if Gu Ruoyun wanted to borrow money, she would only borrow a few gold coins. She didn’t expect her to ask so much. To her, a hundred gold coins were her year’s savings.

But Luo Yin understood. If she could help it, she absolutely wouldn’t open her mouth to borrow money, knowing Gu Ruoyun’s self-esteem.

"Alright, I’ll lend you the money. Wait for me here, I’ll go fetch it! About the reward, you don’t have that many gold coins to repay me, so there’s no need to repay me."

Little did she know what the reward that Gu Ruoyun mentioned was. The moment she saw it, she would know that her friend wasn’t bragging…

The value of one Qi Gathering Pill was much higher than a hundred gold coins!
