Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-335
“Honorable Poison Master, you are mistaken. This is not the token of the
Spirit Sect’s elder. It’s the token of a registered elder. This means
that she would only be an elder in name, but not carry any of the
responsibilities. I know that you’ve seen through this little girl’s
innate talent. So have I. Who would refuse the opportunity to have
another powerful friend? Besides, once she’d grown stronger, she’ll
certainly bring great benefits for the mainland. Furthermore, one of the
mandatory responsibilities of the Three Great Authorities is to find
talented geniuses and provide them with opportunities to grow.”
Honorable Sir Tian Qi curled his lip and thought, from my observation,
this little girl doesn’t seem to be the kind of person who would accept
restrictions. How could I restrict her to the Spirit Sect? I will give
her absolute freedom and allow her to grow as fast as she can.
Furthermore, she would not believe that growing up in a world outside of
the Spirit Sect could be any worse than being in the Spirit Sect itself!
This was different for every individual. For example, she has been able
to grow in strength to such a degree in the outside world. Hence, this
proves that growing in the world outside suits her better.
A bird locked in a cage would turn into a canary and will never be able
to fly any higher. It can only be an object of admiration.
“Thank you very much,” Gu Ruoyun kept the tokens and seemed to remember
something. She turned to the Honorable Poison Master and asked,
“Honorable Poison Master, I have something to ask you.”
“Ask away.” The Honorable Poison Master’s eerie face broke into a smile
and his voice grew warmer.
“How are you connected to the Xia Family of Heaven City?”
It was a question that she had always wanted to ask because based on
Master Xia’s earlier reaction, she knew that the poison in Xia Zixi had
come from the Honorable Poison Master. So he’d know the person who was
responsible for poisoning Xia Zixi.
“The Xia Family of Heaven City?” Honorable Poison Master wrinkled his
brows and shook his head, “I’ve never had dealings with the Xia Family,
why do you ask?”
“Oh, nothing much… Except that the Young Master of the Xia Family, Xia
Zixi was recently poisoned and the poison which had infected him was a
parasite dragon. I’ve heard that only the Poison Master, Tian Gu would
have such a thing. So I wanted to ask you, Honorable Poison Master, to
whom did you give this parasite dragon to?”
The Honorable Poison Master paused in silence, then replied, “That
happened many years ago. I had only just broken through to the ranks of a
mid-level Martial Emperor. I was constantly being hunted as I had
offended too many people. At the time, I was seriously injured and a
young man saved my life. That young man never told me his name. So in my
gratitude, I gave him two things — one was the parasite dragon and
another… Was the soul-snatching parasite.”
The soul-snatching parasite was a kind of parasite that needs to feed on
human life to survive. This was the reason behind the previous Little
Master Xia’s poor health and inability to cultivate. After consuming the
life of its host, the soul-snatching parasite will also die (as there
would be no more life in the host for it to feed on). Hence, when Gu
Ruoyun’s brother was reborn into Little Master Xia’s body, he was able to
cultivate once more.
“Do you still remember how he looked like?” Gu Ruoyun asked as a light
flashed across her eyes.
“It was a long time ago and I’m sure that his looks would have changed.
But I should be able to recognize him, more or less.”
“Good,” Gu Ruoyun nodded her head, “Can I ask you for a favor? In half a
month’s time, please come to Heaven City and help me testify against the
culprit behind the poison!”
“I have no problem with that.” The Honorable Poison Master replied
casually. Even though the man had once come to my rescue, he thought,
I’ve already repaid him for his goodwill. And we have lost contact ever
since. So what would it matter if I testified against him?
“Then I thank you very, very much.” Gu Ruoyun joined her fists and bowed
with a smile, “I still want to explore Heaven Mountain a little more. I
won’t stand in the way of your flirtatious banter. Let’s go, Moyu!”
Upon hearing this, the faces of both old men turned extremely black. The
Honorable Poison Master screamed angrily,”Honorable Sir Tian Qi, I’m
going to kill you!”
“What… What does this have to do with me!!!”
The Honorable Sir Tian Qi was outraged, he didn’t do anything and this
guy was screaming bloody murder and threatening to kill him, can’t he
give it a rest? Forget about it, there is no way out except hiding
oneself away to escape.
The Honorable Sir Tian Qi hurriedly ran in the opposite direction at the
thought of this without even bothering to look at the Honorable Poison
Master’s ugly expression.
Three days and three nights would not be enough to finish my fight with
this Honorable Poison Master. It’s best to peep at a few young ladies in
the bathroom. That’s certainly more appealing than facing that dried-up
old tree bark!
