Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-210
When Old Man Gu walked out of the courtyard, the first thing he saw was a
grey-robed elder standing at the entrance. A group of young men and women
dressed in the same uniform were standing behind him. With one glance,
Old Man Gu could tell exactly which faction these people belonged to.
“Gu Qing, bring Lin’er here, quickly!”
As he gave an order to Gu Qing, Old Man Gu also cast him a pointed look.
Upon hearing this, Gu Qing recovered his senses and walked towards the
backyard using quick, hasty strides. In just a moment, he strode back
into the courtyard, this time accompanied by a handsome young man.
However, that young man had a terrible expression on his face, his
wrinkled brows speaking of his heavy worries.
“Young Master, this old man is here under the orders of the Faction
Master to receive the pill formula. Young Master, you can pass the pill
formula to me now.”
Gu Xianglin’s expression turned even uglier. He glanced at Gu Qing, who
was standing at the side, and remained silent.
“Lin’er?” Old Man Gu frowned, “Pass the pill formula to this
elder; it’ll be safer with him.”
He didn’t understand why Gu Xianglin had such a troubled expression on
his face. Hadn’t he gotten the pill formulas to curry favour with the
Cool Breeze Faction? Why was he hesitating?
“Grandfather, those two pill formulas…” Gu Xianglin finally
hardened his heart and said, “Father gave them away to someone else.”
While listening to Gu Xianglin, the visiting elder’s bright smile had
slowly began to stiffen. It finally cummulated in an instantaneous burst
of rage, welling up from the depths of his heart. From the very
beginning, he had been against letting an outsider become the Young
Master of the Cool Breeze Faction. Now that he heard that Gu Xianglin had
actually given the pill formulas away to someone else, how could he not
“Gu Xianglin, did you really think that your seat as our Cool Breeze
Faction’s Young Master was set in stone? If not for your talents and
the untimely demise of our Faction Master’s son, you wouldn’t have
gotten this position. However, when you found some treasures, instead of
giving them to the Faction Master as tokens of your filial respect, you
actually gave them away to some random stranger? Have you ever even
considered your position as the Young Master of the Cool Breeze Faction
and acted accordingly? You dare to enjoy the benefits of our faction
while giving away treasures to outsiders!”
The elder withheld nothing as he verbally flayed the skin off Gu
Xianglin’s back. With a sharp flick of his sleeves, he then said:
“Everyone, return to the faction with me! Gu Xianglin, you alone will
stay here. I’m going to report this matter to the Faction Master. You
should take care of yourself.”
After saying his piece, the elder turned and left without a single glance
Old Man Gu was completely enraged. He picked up a wooden rod and started
beating Gu Qing with the intent to kill, shouting all the while.
“You little bastard! First, you killed your brother, and now you even
forced your son to give the pill formulas away to someone else! If not
for you, how could this have happened? How could the Cool Breeze Faction
misunderstand the intentions of my Gu Family? It’s all your fault! If I
don’t beat you to death today, that’d be the real shame, you
heartless little bastard!”
Even though Old Man Gu’s vitality had taken a hit, he was still a
martial general. Under the blows of his rod, Gu Qing cried pitifully and
tried to escape anywhere he could.
However, his very own son, Gu Xianglin, watched on as if it had nothing
to do with him.
This man had just ruined his life!
How could he not hate him?
Since he was a child, he had been outshined by Gu Shengxiao in all
aspects, so he had always sworn to defeat him. All for the sake of this
goal, he had suffered many hardships in order to earn the trust of the
Cool Breeze Faction’s Faction Master and get taken in as a godson. He
had even managed to become the Young Master of a faction…
But now? All his hard work had been ruined in an instant, and he had once
again become a nobody!
“It’s gone. Everything’s all gone.”
Gu Xianglin shut his eyes, his expression wretched in agony. Even the
muscles on his face were twitching. “All my efforts over the years have
been ruined by you alone. Heh. If I had known earlier that this would
happen, I wouldn’t have listened to you that day! So this is what they
mean by losing your bride on top of losing your army!”
