Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-272
Elder Zhao had initially planned on taking advantage of Master Xia’s
momentary lapse of attention on him to slip away until he suddenly heard
the latter’s voice and instantly paused in his footsteps. His elderly
face turned very pale. In his panic, his forehead became drenched with
“Master, I was only doing this in consideration of the Xia Family.
He fiercely gritted his teeth and forcibly swallowed the information that
he wanted to convey to Xia Qi. No matter the circumstances, he was
greatly indebted to the Second Master Xia, and he cannot reveal his
“Were your intentions truly in consideration of the Xia Family, or are
you simply using our name to rain tyrannical abuse? I reckon you of all
people should be most clear on this! Elder Zhao, such a higher-up like
you can no longer stay with the Xia Family. From now on, you are no
longer a part of the Xia Family!”
Like thunder from a clear sky, Elder Zhao was thoroughly dumbfounded. He
never imagined that the Master would throw him out of the Xia Family.
This punishment was far more severe than ten great tortures. He simply
could not bear it.
Because the Xia Family has now forsaken him, he no longer has any reason
to stay on the mainland.
Elder Zhao fell onto the ground and knelt down. He cried out profusely,
“I have remained loyal and devoted to the Xia Family for so many years.
If I have no contributions, I have indeed worked hard for the family.
I’ve only made one mistake and now you want me out of the family. Master,
won’t this behavior disappoint the other members of the Xia Family?”
In that instant, a strict, cold and dignified pair of eyes turned towards
Elder Zhao, as sharp as a sword.
Master Xia’s expression remained cold. He clasped his hands behind his
back and replied, “When has anyone had the right to question my
decisions? If you’re not happy with my behavior, you can certainly leave
the Xia Family. I won’t stop you!”
He is the Master of the Xia Family. Hence, he governs everything in the
entire Xia Family, including Heaven City. He will not change his
decision. If you’re not happy? That’s fine. You can leave the Xia Family.
After all, the large Xia Family would not be bothered by the departure of
one or two members.
So don’t think that he would feel threatened with such matters!
Elder Zhao closed his eyes in despair. Suddenly, he laughed and stood up.
He stared mockingly at Master Xiao from head to toe and spoke in a voice
filled with hatred.
“Master, you threw me out of the family, all for the sake of one tiny
Hundred Herb Hall… I believe you’ll regret this one day!”
Even though the Master did indeed hold Pang Ran in great admiration, he
would not have thrown out a powerful high-level Martial King for the sake
of the insignificant Pang Ran. One should know that the number of Martial
Kings in the mainland was few and far in between, and Elder Zhao is a
high-level Martial King!
Isn’t he doing this for the sake of currying favor with the Master of the
Hundred Herb Hall? So that she would allow him to purchase a few pills?
Such greed and selfishness, how could he not regret this in the future?
“Master Xia, I hope that when the time comes, you won’t be kneeling
before me and begging for my return! By the way, Gu Ruoyun, don’t think
that this old man is sincere in helping you. Based on the fact that he is
a greedy and selfish person, why would he help you if it were not for the
fact that you have a few pills on hand? Once you’ve lost your usefulness,
you will soon die by his hand. Haha!”
Elder Zhao laughed again and retracted the murderous intent in his eyes.
He brushed his sleeves, turned around and stumbled as he left. I looked
as if he was going to slip and fall at any moment.
“Merely a jumping jester.”
Master Xia smiled coldly in disapproval. He turned and faced the young
girl behind him, and his eyes, which were initially as frosty as an
icebox, now turned warm like a blooming flower and smiled.
“Little girl, I’ve heard that you have an Azure Dragon and a White Tiger
as your spiritual beasts. Could you show them to me?”
