Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-213
When she saw Dongfang Shaoze’s gentle expression, Second Madam Gu broke
out into cold sweat. A chill started from the bottom of her feet and
climbed all the way to the crown of her head. Undisguised panic flitted
across her bloated face as she cried: “I don’t want to die, please
let me go! I really don’t want to die!”
“If you had known of the consequences earlier, then why did you act
like that back then?”
Dongfang Shaoze sighed as he saw that Second Madam Gu had turned pale
from fright. “You have only yourselves to blame for the consequences
today. The Gu Family was already doomed when they made those mistakes
That day, the anguished wailing of Second Madam Gu could be heard all the
way from the streets. No one knew what happened, or even witnessed anyone
entering the Gu Estate, but her cries painted a vivid image of flesh
being flayed off bit by bit. Closely following her screams, the entire
estate went up in flames. The fierce fire burned for an entire day and
night, and when it finally subsided, the insufferably arrogant Gu Family
had disappeared from the mainland…
Within Hundred Herb Hall, Gu Ruoyun was listening to Elder Yu report
about the recent events. Suddenly, a burst of gentle laughter came from
outside the door. Following that, the mild voice of a familiar man
interrupted her thoughts.
“Yun’er, it has been three years since we last met. I hadn’t
expected you to grow so fast, and you’ve even done so much to make
people sit up and take notice of you.”
Upon hearing a voice she hadn’t heard in three years, Gu Ruoyun slipped
into a slight daze. Without waiting for her to speak up, Elder Yu went up
to the visitor with a look of pleasant surprise. “Young Master,
you’ve come back?”
Dongfang Shaoze nodded. When his eyes landed upon Gu Ruoyun’s face, a
soft smile spread across his handsome face.
For some reason, every time she saw Dongfang Shaoze, Gu Ruoyun would feel
a sense of kinship with him. That intimacy didn’t come from the man’s
warm smile, but… it came from within her heart.
Furthermore, if not for Dongfang Shaoze, she wouldn’t have been able to
become the master of Hundred Herb Hall, and she wouldn’t have been able
to grow this fast.
“You’ve come back?”
Gu Ruoyun asked, raising an eyebrow. There was a bit of good humor in her
Dongfang Shaoze smiled back at her, but he had a grave look in his eyes.
After muttering to himself under his breath for a while, he spoke up:
“Yun’er, there’s something that I didn’t want to tell you at
first, because I didn’t want to pull you into this dispute. But now, I
have no other choice but to tell you…”
“Young Master?” Elder Yu stiffened, “Did something happen to the
Judging by how overprotective Young Master was of Eldest Miss, he would
never reveal that matter to her unless it was a critical situation.
Otherwise, it would only bring Eldest Miss unnecessary trouble.
Thus, upon hearing the first half of Dongfang Shaoze’s words, Elder Yu
knew that something had happened to the Dongfang Family… something that
even the young master couldn’t solve.
Gu Ruoyun didn’t think too much of it and simply smiled as she said,
“Young Master, if you have anything to say, speak freely. I’m all
Dongfang Shaoze’s mind seemed to be somewhere far away as he looked at
the girl’s pretty face. “You’re really like them. Your face is
really similar to your parents’. Actually, Yun’er, you should call me
Uncle! The real name of your mother, Liu Yu, was actually Dongfang Yu.
She was the eldest miss of my Dongfang Family, and the older sister I
admired ever since I was a boy.”
What kind of genius had Dongfang Yu been? Even if she was compared to Gu
Tian, she absolutely wouldn’t have lost to him. However, as the eldest
miss of the Dongfang Family, she had been hidden away since she was
young. Except for the powers that were on the same level as the Dongfang
Family, how could anyone have known how glorious she had been?
