Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-379
At this moment in the Xia Family home, Master Xia was seated on the
Lord’s throne. After so many days, the citizens of Heaven City can
finally air their resentments! However, whenever he thought of the fact
that there was still no news of Xia Linyu, his heart would sink.
“You’ll let me in!”
At this moment, an angered voice rang from outside the meeting hall,
causing Master Xia’s expression to turn chilly. He scoffed coldly as he
said, “Let him in.”
Just then, the meeting hall’s door burst open and Xia Qi, dressed in
embroidered robes, walked in. He glanced at the elders in the meeting
hall then looked at Master Xia who sat on the highest seat. Finally, his
gaze fell onto Gu Ruoyun who was seated next to Master Xia. His sinister
eyes held an eerie and cold expression.
“Gu Ruoyun, how much longer do you plan on lying to the world?!”
Xia Qi’s sudden accusation stunned the crowd. They stared at one another
and could not seem to understand what he was talking about.
“Xia Qi, what’s the meaning of this?” Master Xia could not help but
wrinkle his brows as his eyes stared coldly back at his son, “Give a
clear explanation if you wish to speak.”
This time, Xia Qi had long discarded his mild manners and courteous
attitude. His expression was entirely cold as he rebuked, “Father, did
you not know that Gu Ruoyun was the culprit behind big brother’s
affliction? Otherwise, how was it that only she had been able to save
him? And most importantly, there were many strong cultivators by her side
so taming a parasite dragon would not be a difficult feat. Furthermore,
why was it that the Weapon Refining Sect, of all times, would
coincidentally appear not long after her arrival? Why did she make
excuses to stay in Heaven Mountain just as the Weapon Refining Sect would
arrive? Obviously, she’s looking to free herself of suspicion and you
allowed her to deceive you! You even made false accusations against the
innocent Elder Zhao.”
As he spoke, Xia Qi’s expression grew extremely indignant as if Gu Ruoyun
had committed an unforgivably wicked crime.
“What crime did Elder Zhao commit in going to the Imperial Palace of
Black Tortoise Country to capture her? She was not even a citizen of
Black Tortoise Country yet she has meddled in our affairs and even
brought harm onto an imperial concubine. Instead, you took heed of idle
chatter and chased Elder Zhao out of the Xia Family home! All of you then
witnessed Elder Zhao meeting up with the members of the Weapon Refining
Sect and have determined that he was responsible for bringing the Weapon
Refining Sect to us. Why have you all not considered that this was all
part of this woman’s plan? Her ultimate goal was to obtain the Xia
“Father, were you really going to shame our forebears and hand our family
over to an outsider? Surely the Lord Divine Beast who stands behind the
Xia Family will not allow such heinous acts.”
Xia Qi’s face was full of disappointment as if he never expected for his
own father to commit such traitorous acts against the Xia Family.
However, no one had realized the cold smile in his heart…
He understood that simply with his own strength, it would be impossible
to kill Gu Ruoyun. Now, the only way was to destroy her relationship with
the Xia Family. As long as she leaves the Xia Family home, he would have
another chance to act!
If the Xia Family were to fall into my hands, then the Lord Divine Beast
who stands behind the family will have to listen to me, he thought
gleefully. By then, killing this woman would not be a problem.
Master Xia’s expression changed greatly upon hearing Xia Qi’s
accusations. He knew that as long as Gu Ruoyun willed it, Ling Xiao will
leave with her. Without Lord Ling Xiao, the Xia Family was nothing.
“Xia Qi, if you continue spouting such drivel, you are no son of mine!”
A malicious light flashed across Xia Qi’s eyes but he quickly smiled
