Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-180
“Xiao Yun’er, are you joking with me?”
Zuo Shangchen couldn’t resist smiling, displaying his utterly beautiful
visage, magnificent and peerless.
Even Gu Ruoyun had to admit that her breath was taken away by his beauty
every time they met, even though they had already known each other for
However, when a man’s beauty was this breathtaking, it made all the
women in this world seem like dirt in comparison.
“This prince would have to be crazy to send the Dark Yin Palace to
assassinate you. Furthermore, if you die, then wouldn’t that brother of
yours turn the world upside down?”
Most importantly, he had no reason to kill Gu Ruoyun. So it was
impossible that the Dark Yin Palace would attempt to assassinate her!
A cold blade rested on Zuo Shangchen’s neck. Wei Yiyi carried a
seductive smile on her lips as her eyes emanated frost: “The assassins
who came this time were definitely people from the Dark Yin Palace.
Fourth Prince, please give us an explanation!”
Upon seeing Wei Yiyi’s actions, Qingyi’s expression turned icy. She
tried to draw her sword, but Zuo Shangchen raised his hand and stopped
“Qingyi, back down.”
The smile on his face disappeared, bit by bit. His mesmerising eyes
slowly narrowed as he asked: “Xiao Yun’er, you’re being serious?”
Judging by Gu Ruoyun’s personality, she wouldn’t come looking for him
if she wasn’t absolutely sure.
Thus, it was definitely true that the Dark Yin Palace had sent people to
Rage awakened in Zuo Shangchen’s heart. Which damned bastard had done
something like this and caused him to become their scapegoat?! If he
finds the culprit, even tearing that fellow into a thousand pieces
wouldn’t be enough to soothe the rage in his heart!
“What do you think, Fourth Prince?” Gu Ruoyun smiled, “If it
wasn’t for the formation set up in my compound, my head wouldn’t be
resting on my shoulders right now! So, do you think that what we’ve
said is true?”
After hearing Gu Ruoyun call him Fourth Prince, Zuo Shangchen knew that
she was angry. However, what she had said was true. Whenever the Dark Yin
Palace attempted to kill someone, if the first attempt didn’t succeed,
then they would simply send more people, pledging their lives until the
mission was a success. With Gu Ruoyun’s current level of strength, she
wouldn’t be able to fight on the same level as the old bastards in the
Dark Yin Palace.
Thus, her anger was completely within reason. She had almost died for no
apparent reason at all, how could she not be angry?
“Xiao Yun’er, I was wronged,” Zuo Shangchen’s face was filled
with grievance, “I really didn’t know about this. If you can give me
some time, I’ll investigate this matter and report back to you.”
Gu Ruoyun stayed silent for a moment before gesturing for Wei Yiyi to
sheathe her sword, a bright smile on her face.
Upon seeing that smile, Zuo Shangchen unconsciously shivered.
“Fourth Prince, do hurry and find the culprits behind this. If this
spreads to the people by my side… Although I’m not strong enough
right now, trust me, the day will come when I sink the entire Dark Yin
Zuo Shangchen’s body shook a little. His almond-shaped eyes stared
deeply at the slender girl before him. At this moment, the girl had an
endlessly domineering aura, like a ruler looking down upon the world.
He believed that Gu Ruoyun had the ability to keep to her word.
A Qi level two good-for-nothing had reached this level in just three to
four years’ time!
There were probably only a few geniuses in the strongest sects who could
match this kind of talent.
However, compared to those geniuses, Gu Ruoyun’s spiritual ocean was
much more vast and endless; it was much harder for her to cultivate and
break through! Under those kind of circumstances, she had even advanced
so quickly in rank.
