Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-290
On a small hill, a group of men who were drenched in blood stared
vigilantly at another group of men — emitting a strong aura of
murderous intent, who tightly encircled the young man and girl in the
middle of a formation, full of resolve and totally unafraid of death.
A few years ago, the Master had assigned them to the Little Master and
ordered them to follow him like shadows. However, in order to avoid
bothering the Little Master, they remained hidden.
Their lives belonged to the Xia Family and if the Little Master was in
danger, they will ensure his safety even if it meant sacrificing their
This was their mission!
Luo Li tightly pulled on the sleeves of Xia Linyu’s robes, her adorable
doll-like features were filled with anxiety. She stole a glance at the
young boy whose fair and delicate features remained calm. His clear and
shining eyes showed no sign of wavering.
Thinking of Xia Linyu’s calm demeanor and of her own cowardice and panic,
Luo Li forcibly steadied herself and calmed down.
As long as Brother Yu is here, I’m not afraid of anything, thought Luo Li.
“Xia Linyu, I’d like to see how you’re going to escape this time!”
A middle-aged man who led the opposing group laughed. His sharp gaze
stared past the guards and straight towards Xia Linyu, “If you would
obediently surrender yourselves, I might grant you a quick and easy
The sound of a clear, melodious laugh was heard and the corners of the
young boy’s lips curled upwards. A smile graced his handsome face while
his voice sounded like a clear spring — beautiful and moving, ringing
throughout this battle-worn hill.
“I have no hatred towards your Hundred Herb Hall, so why are you here to
kill me? You’ve even sent such a large amount of troops.”
The middle-aged man laughed, “What an ignorant little boy! It is simply
because of the fact that you are the Little Master of the Xia Family that
you must be punished with a thousand deaths! The Master of the Hundred
Herb Hall, Gu Ruoyun was my foster daughter. And she has been captured by
your Xia Family! As her adopted father, I’m going to avenge her!”
Xia Linyu’s face changed. His mind drowned out everything else in the
man’s speech, except for one particular sentence.
Gu Ruoyun is in the Xia Family Estate! She is at the Xia Family home!
Could it be that Grandfather had done something to her and caused the
Hundred Herb Hall to dispatch its forces?
Xia Linyu panicked at the thought of this, his mannerism changed
immediately, “You say that Gu Ruoyun is at the Xia Family home? Has
something happened to her? This won’t do. I need to return home!”
Yes, I must hurry home! Otherwise, knowing Grandfather’s stubborn nature,
what would happen if he raised his hand against her?
Luo Li bit her lip, feeling as if a needle had pierced into her heart. It
was extremely hurtful.
When faced with danger, he never lost his head.
Even when there was no escape, he was fearless.
But at this very moment, Luo Li could see the dread and tension in Xia
Just who is this woman they call Gu Ruoyun? I’ve known Brother Yu ever
since we were children, but I’ve never heard of her name before. How is
she able to cause such a huge reaction in Brother Yu?
The middle-aged man scoffed coldly, “Gu Ruoyun is already in the hands of
your family. Do you think we’d let you get away? You will die here today!
I’ll have my revenge and wipe up this grudge!”
By now, Xia Linyu had stopped listening to everything else. All he knew
was that Gu Ruoyun was in danger and that he must hurry back to the Xia
Family home to save her! Hence, he lost all sense of rationality.
Otherwise, he would probably be questioning the middle-aged man who has
claimed to be Gu Ruoyun’s foster father.
