Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-393
“Uncle, I’m tired.”
Gu Ruoyun yawned as if she did not wish to hear whatever else Dongfang
Shaoze was trying to say.
Dongfang Shaoze tried to continue but upon seeing Gu Ruoyun’s tired
pallor, he sighed, “Yun’er, someday you’ll understand him… However,
regardless what your relationship with the Dongfang Family is, you will
always be my niece.”
Gu Ruoyun only smiled and said nothing more. Her fresh and beautiful face
now held a gentle light.
Moonlight shone through the gentle brush of willow trees.
The young girl was dressed in green robes that fluttered gently in the
night breeze. She stood in front of the window, her thoughts unclear. A
familiar presence appeared from behind her and her heart could not help
but feel calmer.
“Xiao Ye, do you have relatives?”
Qianbei Ye wrinkled his brows and shook his head. Then he remembered that
Gu Ruoyun might not have been able to see his actions and said, “I don’t
know, perhaps… Not.”
“Xiao Ye, do you know that I am a person with a past life?” Gu Ruoyun
raised her head and stared out at the moonlight, as if she was seeing the
slaughter on that snow-capped mountain again, “In my past life, I had a
kind grandfather, a wonderful mother, and an adorable little brother. But
my father was the lowest of scums! Not only had he gone after my mother
for the sake of obtaining the position of the Xia Family’s Young Master;
but on the very night that he had received my mother, he allowed his
childhood lover to enter the household! If it weren’t for my
grandfather’s favoritism towards my mother, I’m afraid… My mother would
not have been able to continue living in the Xia Family home.”
Qianbei Ye did not reply, he stared quietly back at Gu Ruoyun. He knew
that this was a secret which was concealed in the deepest recesses of her
Yet she is willing to now tell him this secret, how great of a trust is
“However, everything changed when my grandfather passed away. The Xia
Family has a precious heirloom, the Phoenix Cauldron, and only the
reincarnation of the Purple Phoenix can acquire the Phoenix Cauldron.
Before he had passed on, grandfather gave the Phoenix Cauldron to me.
Hence, that bastard with no humanity destroyed my entire maternal
grandfather’s family and kidnapped my mother to use her as a threat so
that I would give him the Phoenix Cauldron! In order to prevent the
Phoenix Cauldron from falling into their hands, my mother chose to take
her own life!
Now, thinking of the memories of her past life, Gu Ruoyun still felt her
heart ache as if it were being torn into pieces!
She could never forget how her entire maternal grandfather’s family had
been exterminated and the scene of that funeral. Neither could she forget
as she witnessed her beloved mother tortured by that b*stard and
ultimately choosing to take her own life…
Gu Ruoyun gently closed her eyes, then slowly opened them again, “After
my mother died, I chose to bear the humiliation to save my skin and leave
my hometown. I entrusted my only brother, who was the only person I had
left at the time, to my childhood lover.”
Upon hearing that last sentence, Qianbei Ye felt a discomfort in his
heart. His incomparably beautiful face looked particularly ugly, and his
entire body was enveloped in an eerie aura. If that person were here, god
forbid that he would die without a whole corpse!
Gu Ruoyun obviously did not notice the state of the man behind her as she
continued speaking, “But I never thought that he would betray me! For the
sake of that Phoenix Cauldron, for the sake of a high position, he had
not hesitated to curry favor with that b*stard. He tore my brother into
pieces while he was still alive right in front of me! Hahaha, Xiao Ye, do
you know how I had felt? Even if I had died, I wanted to drag all of them
down to hell with me!”
Suddenly, a large, warm, and tender hand reached out from behind her and
pulled her tightly into an embrace.
She didn’t know why but upon feeling the man’s warm and tender chest, her
manic temperament slowly grew calm again.
