Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-389
This is where the Dongfang Family reside. Dongfang City is very much like
Heaven City and the position of the Dongfang Family was like that of the
Xia Family in Heaven City. Every kilometer surrounding Dongfang City
belongs to the Dongfang Family.
In the Dongfang Family, it’s entirely forgivable if you don’t know Master
Dongfang’s name; you will also be forgiven if you were ignorant of the
identity of the Dongfang Family’s Young Master. But there is one name
that everyone must know — the former number one genius of the Dongfang
Family who had once shocked the entire mainland; the woman who had been
highly sought after by the Three Great Authorities, Dongfang Yu!
It’s said that not only did Dongfang Yu of the Dongfang Family have a
face that could cause the downfall of cities, she had always been
exceptionally talented! Unfortunately, the heavens were jealous of her
beauty for shortly after Dongfang Yu’s disappearance, news spread that
she had met her demise. No one really knew what the Master of the
Dongfang Family really said when he addressed the crowd with the news,
all they knew was that after the meeting, the Master of the Dongfang
Family had suddenly aged ten years…
However, since the beginning of the incident, the Dongfang Family had not
made any movement. Even now, no one knew who the culprit was behind
Dongfang Yu’s death…
At this very moment, outside the tight security of the city gates, a
shock of green robes paused. A young girl stroked her chin and raised her
head to look at the grand gates with a lightly cocked eyebrow, “What
happened to Dongfang Family? Why are the guards searching the visitors so
stringently? Whatever it is, I’ll discuss this when I meet with my uncle.
Xiao Ye, let’s go.”
She then walked straight towards the city gates.
“Both of you, please show your identity tokens.”
Just as Gu Ruoyun stepped in front of the city gate, the voice of a city
official sounded in a slow, cold, and mechanical voice. But when he
raised his head towards Gu Ruoyun, a hint of surprise flashed across his
“My lady, are you Lady Gu?”
Gu Ruoyun went blank for a bit before nodding her head, “That’s right,
I’m Gu Ruoyun.”
“Lady Gu, you’ve finally arrived,” The city official wiped the sweat on
his forehead as a smile appeared on his cold expression, “I am under the
orders of the Young Master to await your arrival in his place, Lady Gu.
Seeing as you’ve arrived, then I will take you to meet the Young Master.”
Before this, the Young Master had shown Gu Ruoyun’s portrait to them.
Once she had arrived, there would be no need for them to search her and
she would be permitted into Dongfang City immediately.
This was the reason why the city official had been able to identify her
with just one look.
Just as the city official was about to escort Gu Ruoyun to meet Dongfang
Shaoze, the sound of horse’s hooves interrupted them, followed by someone
calling for the horse to stop.
The group saw a woman general, clad in armor, tightly pulling on the
reins. She wore bright red armor and looked absolutely majestic with
upwards-slanting eyebrows. She frowned as she swept her imposing gaze
towards the city official who had just been about to turn and leave. She
spoke sharply, “Zhang Li, you have not investigated their identities or
conducted a search on their persons.”
The city official, whom she had addressed as Zhang Li, stared blankly for
a bit before replying pragmatically, “Reporting to General Dongfang, this
lady is someone that the Young Master wants to meet. This was why this
subordinate would be so bold as to allow them entrance into Dongfang City
without a search.”
“Hmph, Zhang Li, you’re far too bold! With the conditions surrounding the
Dongfang Family, you’ve actually allowed entrance so carelessly! And in
the name of the Young Master! I am the General of Dongfang City. Since
the Young Master had issued such an order, why have I not heard of it?
Furthermore, under the grim circumstances of the Dongfang Family, even
the Young Master cannot use bribery or fraud! Men, search them!”
