Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-254
“If you wanted to protect her so much, why not show yourself to her,
instead of always hiding in the shadows?”
Zuo Shangchen, dressed in peach pink robes suddenly appeared behind the
man. His face, which was as beautiful as a peach blossom, carried a
relaxed and capricious smile. His beautiful eyes carelessly glanced at
the body of the man before him. No one had noticed it, but at that moment
a strange light flashed across his eyes.
Once he had found out that two parties from the Xia family were looking
to track Gu Ruoyun down, the man in black called upon Zuo Shangchen for
his help to squash the news of her presence in Black Tortoise Country.
This is why no news regarding the recent events at the Imperial Palace
had leaked out…
Aside from anyone who was involved in the situation, no one knew the
whereabouts of the Master of the Hundred Herb Hall.
“Xiao Yun’er…must really want to see you.”
Zuo Shangchen closed his fan and wiped off his lazy smile. His eyes now
stared seriously at the man, “No one knows how much pain and suffering
she’s endured all these years, are you really decided on never
The man was silent. The sunlight could not drive out the chill emanating
from his cold demeanor, no matter how warm it was.
At that moment, even Zuo Shangchen could feel the man’s depressive
state, his chest felt blocked with panic, his usually frivolous
expression was now more dignified – no one had ever seen him this way.
“It is still not the time yet.” The man said, shaking his head as a cold
light flashed across his dark eyes, “I cannot let anyone know of my
presence here, and no one must realize that the man locked within the
mountains is not me! Otherwise, the men who have eyed me covetously would
not let this opportunity slip by. Furthermore, with such a strong enemy
on my back, before I am powerful enough, I can only use this method to
ensure her safety.”
Zuo Shangchen was momentarily startled, then recovered himself to his
usual easy-going yet enchanting smile, his red lips curved attractively.
He unfolded his fan with a smile as beautiful as ten miles of fragrant
“You’re willing to give your all in order to protect her, then I will
use my life to ensure her safety in the future. If anything happens to
you, I will never let anyone harm even a single strand of hair on her
Zuo Shangchen may have said this with a smile, but his eyes displayed
No one could even touch a single hair on whomever Zuo Shangchen resolves
Unless they did it over his dead body!
The man replied hoarsely.
What is the meaning of being a brother? Brothers will make every effort
to protect the members of their family. While he has never mentioned this
to Zuo Shangchen, this man would be his sworn brother for the rest of his
“In the past, it was you who saved my life. If it were not for you, I
would not be alive today. So protecting her is my duty.” Zuo Shangchen
Hearing these words, the man said nothing more. His gaze fell on the pure
and beautiful young girl in the courtyard. His eye so filled with love it
could drown a person to death.
“Yun’er, do not worry. Once I’ve accumulated enough power to protect
you, I will appear before you, and guard you so that you will always live
If Gu Ruoyun had known that the news of the commotion in the palace was
squashed by that mischievous Zuo Shangchen, she would have punched him
fiercely! In fact, the reason why she had decided to make such a huge
commotion in Black Tortoise Country was to attract the attention of the
Xia family. But their good intentions put her efforts to waste.
At this moment, in the Xia household, a middle-aged man slammed his hand
on a table, glaring coldly at his subordinates, “I gave you a simple
order to find someone, and you’ve failed! If that little bastard Xia
Linyu found her first, all of you had better feed yourselves to tigers
and wolves! I’ll give you half a month more. Be sure to murder Gu
Ruoyun, and push the blame on Xia Linyu! I want to cause a rift between
Xian Linyu’s father and the Ghost Doctor!”
