Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-381
Master Xia and everyone else was utterly dumbfounded.
Especially Xia Qi, who had met the Honorable Poison Master once before.
He was so shocked upon seeing a smile on that cold, eerie, and gloomy
face that he was rendered speechless. His mouth gaped open in shock.
“Little girl, I’ve fulfilled my promise to visit the Xia Family home in
half a month.”
This was the promise he had made to her half a month ago.
So now, he had arrived to fulfill that promise.
“Little Gu Girl, you…” Master Xia’s eyes widened in shock as his gaze
swept towards Gu Ruoyun before falling onto the Honorable Poison Master.
Suddenly, he slapped his thigh and cried out in realization, “That’s
right, who else would have nurtured such a little monster besides the
Honorable Poison Master himself? Little girl, are you a disciple of the
Honorable Poison Master?”
He had long suspected that this little girl was somehow related to one of
the Three Great Authorities, otherwise, she could not possibly have
become such a genius. While the Honorable Poison Master was not a part of
the Three Great Authorities, he was a Martial Honor and would certainly
have the power to nurture a genius like herself.
The Honorable Poison Master laughed gloomily, “This honored one and that
fellow from the Spirit Sect have indeed taken an interest in this little
girl. Unfortunately, the little girl has no interest in us and had
rejected both our offers to become our apprentice.”
A sudden clap of thunder struck from the heavens, everyone was dumbstruck
by his proclamation.
What did the Honorable Poison Master say? The crowd thought in unison.
Both he and the Martial Honor from the Spirit Sect had taken an interest
in this young lady yet both were rejected by her? Heavens, how much
boldness would one have to have in order to reject an offer of an
apprenticeship from two Martial Honors?
“Honorable Poison Master, you’ve arrived just in time,” Gu Ruoyun rose
and smiled, “I would like to ask you to identify someone.”
The Honorable Poison Master cocked an eyebrow and tried his best to speak
in an extremely friendly manner, “Who would you like me to identify?”
Upon witnessing the familiar manner in speaking between the Honorable
Poison Master and Gu Ruoyun, Xia Qi’s face drained of color and turned as
white as sheet. He unconsciously stumbled a few steps back and gulped
forcefully as he looked at the young woman’s half smiling face.
“Honorable Poison Master, could you take a look and tell me if you gave
the parasite dragon and the soul-snatching parasite to this man?”
The smile on Gu Ruoyun’s face grew more pronounced but it was a smile
that did not reach her eyes.
Her eyes glared frostily at Xia Qi.
The Honorable Poison Master’s gaze slowly followed her line of sight onto
Xia Qi’s face. He gently wrinkled his brow and turned silent. Within half
a heartbeat, he seemed to have remembered something and nodded his head.
“There’s no mistake about it. Years ago, I was heavily injured and he was
the one who saved me. As a token of my gratitude, I gifted him a parasite
dragon and a soul-snatching parasite. Many years have gone by ever since
but his general appearance has not changed. I can still recognize him.”
This revelation was like a bolt of lightning which had struck from the
clear skies. The elders in the meeting hall could not believe their ears.
In their eyes, Xia Qi had always appeared cultured and refined, he
respected his older brother and loved his nephew. How could he have done
such a thing? Furthermore, the reason behind the Little Master’s
inability to cultivate was all because of him.
The soul-snatching parasite consumes human life, causing the body to
become extremely weak and unable to cultivate, ultimately resulting in
While they did not know how the Little Master had managed to recover, Xia
Qi’s actions would deserve the wrath of God and the resentment of men.
“Xia Qi, so it was you!”
Master Xia seethed in anger and he grabbed Xia Qi’s lapels in one swoop
before fiercely throwing him out. Xia Qi’s body crashed into door panel
with a loud thump. He spat out a mouthful of blood and glared
maliciously, “You’re lying! You are acquainted with Gu Ruoyun and helped
her lie so that she can take my Xia Family! Father, how can you believe
the babbling nonsense of these people who are trying to frame your own
son? Your actions will disappoint our forbears!”
