Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-188
“Shopkeeper Zhao, help me look after him.”
From the time she arrived till now, Gu Ruoyun didn’t take a single look
at Bai Chuan. Her back stood straight and tall; it was the delicate back
of a woman, but it looked like it could carry the weight of the world.
Bai Chuan’s heart, which he had previously thought might leap out of
his chest, settled down. It felt as if everything would be fine as long
as she was around.
Shopkeeper Zhao nodded and pulled Bai Chuan off to the side. When he
looked at the figure in front of him, a deep sense of anxiety began to
gnaw at his heart.
Dressed in robes of green, her black hair fluttering in the wind, Gu
Ruoyun’s face was like sculpted stone. When her gaze landed on the
elder, that immovable image broke as she deliberately smiled at him.
“You’re from Dark Yin Palace?”
“That’s right!” Elder Liu sneered and said, “I’m an elder of
Dark Yin Palace. Someone has put a price on your life! Although our Dark
Yin Palace holds no grudge with you, since we’ve accepted our
employer’s mission, you have to die!”
On the mainland, most martial kings wouldn’t touch ordinary people,
especially if they were from a sect or a faction, as such organizations
were under the Three Great Authorities’ watch. However, the Dark Yin
Palace was an exception. As long as someone gave them enough money, they
would accept the mission! Furthermore, they weren’t within the
jurisdiction of the Three Great Authorities.
Thus, the Dark Yin Palace didn’t have to act in the shadows like the
Weapon Refining Sect. If they wanted to kill someone, they would do it in
broad daylight! They even send a Declaration of Death beforehand to let
their target prepare.
Gu Ruoyun sneered: “You don’t have any objections if I take Bai Chuan
away, do you?”
“He’s just a tool. Since he has fulfilled his purpose, he’s useless
now, but…” Elder Liu’s eyes narrowed slightly, “You, on the other
hand, cannot go with him! If you leave, I can’t fulfill my mission!”
This time, Imperial Concubine Ling had offered a good reward for this
commission. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have bothered to personally come and
complete this mission.
“Rest assured, I have no intention of leaving!” Gu Ruoyun’s smile
grew even more pronounced. However, those clear eyes of hers were full of
killing intent as she said, “That’s because I’m not done clearing
Gu Ruoyun stepped forward. The second her foot touched the ground, a
powerful killing intent burst out from her small form. In contrast to the
volcanic force of her rage, Gu Ruoyun’s face was like a layer of frost.
“Furthermore, you don’t have to explain anything. I know that this
was all done by Imperial Concubine Ling, or you wouldn’t have been at
the Ling household. In the entire Ling family, she’s the only one with
enough power to hire an assassin from Dark Yin Palace… However, you
made one fatal mistake: you didn’t come straight at me! Instead, you
went after my people! Thus, you have to die here! I’ll send both you
and Imperial Concubine Ling to an early grave!”
Bai Chuan’s eyes were caught by Gu Ruoyun’s murderous expression. His
breath caught; his heart was beating so hard it felt like it was knocking
against his rib cage.
For some reason, right then and there, he had a feeling that, just maybe,
he wouldn’t regret following her…
It was only at this moment that Bai Chuan finally, fully pledged his
allegiance to Gu Ruoyun.
“Hmph, what a wild boast!”
Elder Liu’s expression turned cold. He slammed the table, stood up, and
with a single step, leapt towards Gu Ruoyun. The force of his movements
kicked up a storm of wild winds inside the courtyard. In contrast to that
show of strength, Gu Ruoyun’s clothes merely fluttered; before her,
wind was simply wind.
Since the beginning, her expression hadn’t changed at all: Gu Ruoyun,
calm as water, was still smiling.
That smile of hers seemed to be mocking Elder Liu for overestimating his
Just as Elder Liu was about to kill Gu Ruoyun in rage, a white light
abruptly shot out from in front of her. An enraged roar rang out,
shocking Elder Liu into retreating a few steps.
“Yunyao, kill him!”
Gu Ruoyun’s eyes were cold as she commanded Elder Liu’s execution.
The White Tiger replied, turning to her prey at an unhurried pace. With a
smile full of ridicule, she began to walk towards Elder Liu, one elegant
step at a time…
