Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-215
“Actually, it’s nothing big. I just feel that your grandfather’s
health has been deteriorating lately, and his light is starting to wane.
In addition, the Dongfang Family is facing enemies on all sides. Not only
do we have to face the enemies from the outside, now we even have to
defend ourselves against inner struggles. He’s gradually losing his
strength. If he doesn’t break through now, he’ll probably only be
able to hold on for another one or two years.”
Dongfang Shaoze showed a bitter smile. Back then, so that the Weapon
Refining Sect would be too busy to deal with Gu Ruoyun, he had taken
pains to convince his father to do something. However, in the end, it was
the Dongfang Family that suffered the consequences.
Three years. For three whole years, the Dongfang Family and the Weapon
Refining Sect had been at war. If anything happened to Father, then the
Dongfang Family would probably be destroyed. However, he didn’t explain
this to Gu Ruoyun. No matter what, he wasn’t willing to use this debt
to ensnare her…
Gu Ruoyun sunk into silence for a while. After some time, she raised her
head and looked at the man’s mild face: “I don’t like the Dongfang
Family, because of the way they reacted to Mother’s death. However, I
acknowledge you as my uncle. You’re a member of the Dongfang Family,
so… I can’t let anything happen to the Dongfang Family!”
She was implying that she was willing to help the Dongfang Family, but
only because of him, Dongfang Shaoze, and not because of any kinship with
the Dongfang Family.
His heart warmed, but he was still filled with inerasable guilt. He
couldn’t imagine just how much difficulty this girl had been through in
the past to make her this calm. If only he had come out of his closed
door cultivation and travelled to Azure Dragon Country earlier, then
perhaps she wouldn’t have suffered so much…
No one from the Dongfang Family had helped her after so many years, so it
was understandable that she didn’t hold any goodwill towards the
Dongfang Family. If not for her good luck, who knows how many times she
would have died in the hands of the Gu Family by now?
“Uncle, based on my current abilities, I have no way to help the
Dongfang Family Head to break through yet. So let’s talk about helping
him break through later on. I have a Longevity Pill here; take this to
him and tell him to use it first. This Longevity Pill can add ten years
to your lifetime. Right now, I’m going to make a trip to somewhere
else. When I’m done with that matter, I’ll go to the Dongfang Family
to look for you.”
Gu Ruoyun could guess a little at what the Dongfang Family Head was
facing right now. Elder Yu had told her before that the Dongfang Family
was most likely the reason why the Weapon Refining Sect had not come
looking for her. Without any need to think about it, it was clear to her
that it was something Dongfang Shaoze had done for her sake…
Even though he hadn’t brought up that matter to force her into helping
the Dongfang Family, Gu Ruoyun wasn’t an ungrateful person who didn’t
repay her debts. Thus, even though she wasn’t too impressed by the
Dongfang Family, she would still do her utmost to help him…
However, upon hearing her words, Dongfang Shaoze froze in place.
Honestly speaking, he had come here to ask for a Longevity Pill. With
that pill, Father would be able to hold on for another ten years. With
those ten years, he might even be able to break through. Even in the
worst case, if Father was unable to break through, it would still give
the Dongfang Family another ten years to fight on.
But Yun’er had just said that she didn’t have any way to help the
Dongfang Family Head break through… yet? Didn’t that mean she might
have one in the future?
Thinking up to here, Dongfang Shaoze shook his head and smiled:
“Yun’er, then I’ll wait for you at the Dongfang Family. However,
could Uncle ask you something? Where are you going to next?”
Gu Ruoyun cast her gaze downwards as her lips curled into a smile.
That smile was filled with warmth, expectation, and a thread of
