Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-40
“That was only one of the reasons why you have won Hundred Herb Hall.
Another reason was that you are very capable.” The man smiled and
rubbed Gu Ruoyun’s head, his eyes full of affection as he said, “I
really don’t know how your life was at the Gu family, that you, a
perfectly normal fifteen year old girl would actually become this mature
and cold. It hurts my heart as a close friend of your parents.”
Dongfang Shaoze sighed helplessly, but the corner of his lips held a
Elder Yu watched all of this from the side, feeling sad for his young
master. He knew that young master had wanted to meet Gu Ruoyun for a very
long time, but he had not wanted to endanger her by connecting her with
the Dongfang family, so he had always avoided meeting her.
Even when they finally met, he couldn’t acknowledge her as his niece…
“Hm? And this is?”
Suddenly, Dongfang Shaoze felt a ruthlessly fierce aura from behind Gu
Ruoyun. He turned to look at the silver-haired man standing behind her,
and upon meeting those blood-red pupils, his heart shook. How many people
did you have to kill to get such heartless and bloodthirsty eyes? The
anger exuding off his body made Dongfang Shaoze’s body tense up.
“Oh, you mean him?” Gu Ruoyun glanced at Qianbei Ye, “I picked him
up from outside.”
Picked him up?
The corner of Dongfang Shaoze’s mouth twitched, did she think that this
person was like a stray cat or dog? That you could simply pick one up off
the street? Also, just now, Dongfang Shaoze had experienced how quickly
someone could change their expression.
At the moment that Gu Ruoyun had turned around, the man that had been
looking at him unhappily had immediately switched to an aggrieved
expression. Looking at that expression, it was as if someone had bullied
“Young master Dongfang, surely you won’t mind arranging two rooms for
Gu Ruoyun’s words brought Dongfang Shaoze back to his senses. He shook
his head and smiled: “You’re the owner of Hundred Herb Hall from now
on, this place is your territory. If you want to arrange for rooms, then
you can do it yourself. I came to Azure Dragon Country this time because
I heard that you would come out of the Heavenly Spirit Formation today.
I’ll be leaving after another two days, but I’ll leave Elder Yu to
“Okay,” Gu Ruoyun nodded, “Xiao Ye, let’s go.”
Qianbei Ye glanced once more at Dongfang Shaoze before he turned and
followed Gu Ruoyun out of the inner hall.
The moment they disappeared, Dongfang Shaoze’s expression sunk bit by
“Elder Yu, investigate that man’s identity for me!”
“Young master?” Surprise flashed through his eyes, “Is there a
problem with that man? I can’t feel any spiritual power from his
Dongfang Shaoze sneered: “I have a feeling that that man is very
strong, and that even my father wouldn’t be his match!”
Elder Yu widened his eyes in shock, even the master wasn’t his match?
The master was already a martial king, if even the master couldn’t beat
him, then how strong was that man?
“I want to know why this man has appeared by Yun’er’s side! I will
never let anyone harm my sister’s flesh and blood, whether it’s this
man, or the Gu family!”
Gu Ruoyun had been beaten to death by Old Man Gu. He had no knowledge of
this until it was too late, otherwise he would not have allowed his
sister’s child to be lost.
“I don’t want to help Yun’er grow, as I want to see her true power,
but that doesn’t mean that I’ll allow others to do as they will!
Especially everything that happened in the imperial palace today! The Gu
family… can’t be touched for now, but we can create some trouble for
them. Elder Yu, help me prepare everything, I’m going to visit the Gu
