The appearance of this Layman Futian had truly come as a surprise to Han Li.
"Were you not aware that I'm a woman, Fellow Daoist Han?" the purple-haired woman chuckled.
"Indeed, Fellow Daoist Bai Yunxin didn't mention this to me. Please forgive me for my rudeness," Han Li said as he cupped his fist in a salute toward the woman, and his expression immediately returned to normal, but there was still a hint of shock in his eyes.
"That's alright, this isn't the first time this has happened to me. After all, the title of Layman Futian is quite prone to causing misunderstandings. It's just that the past patriarchs of our Bai Family had all been referred to as such, so it wouldn't be right of me to change the title," the woman explained with a smile.
Han Li was quite enlightened upon hearing this.
There were indeed some families in which certain titles were passed down in order to improve cohesion and as a piece of heritage.
This may seem like a bit of a gimmick, but it was actually quite effective in some cases.
The purple-haired woman took a seat across from Han Li, then waved a hand to dismiss the servants in the room, all of whom obediently departed, making sure to close the door behind them.

As for the time I've spent as a devilish lord, I'm afraid you're wrong there; I only became a devilish lord several centuries ago. The only reason you're unable to ascertain my exact cultivation base is because I've cultivated a special secret technique," Han Li replied with a smile.
At the same time, he also swept his spiritual sense toward Layman Futian, only to find that her cultivation base was completely unfathomable to him as well.
It was clear that this woman either had an aura concealment treasure or had cultivated an ability of that nature. With Han Li's current level of power, there was surely no one of the same cultivation base who could possess magic power that was unfathomable to him, so that wasn't a viable alternative.
The woman's heart jolted slightly upon hearing this, and a barely detectable hint of elation appeared on her face. "The dao of slaughter? I haven't come into contact with devilish arts of that nature much,
