Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-404
Gu Ruoyun shrugged, “You’re calling me a ‘damned girl’ so why should I
show it to you?”
“You…” The old man’s face was ashen as he glared at her and said, “Then
what do you want? Don’t forget, I am your maternal grandfather! What’s
wrong with letting your maternal grandfather have a look at that jade
“Aih,” Gu Ruoyun shook her head and sighed softly, “I was thinking of
trying to persuade maternal grandmother to come down from the mountain
but I was born timid. If you yell and scold me like that, I would feel
scared. I don’t think I can stay in the Dongfang Family home any longer.
Otherwise, you’d scare me to death so I’ve decided to leave now. As for
maternal grandmother… I think you’d better persuade her yourself.”
The old man’s face turned from green to white, then from white back to
green, the changes were varied.
One can imagine that Gu Ruoyun had certainly angered him to a high degree.
After all, in Dongfang City, besides the person who now resides in the
back mountain, who wouldn’t see, hear and obey his words?
This damned girl dares to threaten me! He thought. And unexpectedly, this
threat was showing results!
“You’re probably the only one in this entire world who dares to speak to
their elders in this manner,” The old man was extremely furious, “Say it
then, what would you need me to do in order for you to persuade your
maternal grandmother to come down from the mountain? She’s been there for
over ten years now and I’m only allowed to see her three times a year.
Only heaven knows how much of a torment this is. The fact that I haven’t
been forced into madness was already considered good enough.”
“In the future, use a better tone of voice when you are speaking to me.”
“You are also not allowed to decide on uncle’s wedding, you are not
allowed to force him into marrying anyone he doesn’t like. And whomever
he does like, regardless of what kind of person she is, you cannot stop
“I want absolute freedom! That also means that I will not be confined
within the Dongfang Family’s restrictions. If my parents are still alive,
you must accept my father. If they are truly gone, I want them to be
enshrined in the Dongfang Family Ancestral Hall.”
“If you are able to promise these conditions, then I promise to help you
persuade maternal grandmother into descending the mountain.” Gu Ruoyun
stared at Master Dongfang with a smile.
Master Dongfang fell silent for a while before he replied, “Fine, I will
agree to your conditions but I also have a request! Number one, your
maternal grandmother’s birthday is just half a month away, I hope that
she will descend the mountain before then. Number two, on your maternal
grandmother’s birthday, I want to make an announcement to tell everyone
that you are the maternal daughter of the Dongfang Family.”
Gu Ruoyun replied without a second thought, “I will agree to your
Master Dongfang went momentarily blank. Previously, he thought, this girl
had been adamant in refusing to acknowledge me as her maternal
grandfather, yet now she’s agreeing to do so?
Actually, if it weren’t for Lan Yuge’s words and Master Dongfang’s
obvious display of favoritism earlier on, Gu Ruoyun probably would never
have acknowledged the Dongfang Family…
“You’re really agreeing to this?” The old man still dared not believe his
This girl has always been wily and mischievous, could it be that she’s
“It seems that you don’t want me to agree,” Gu Ruoyun sighed and said
helplessly, “If that’s the case, then I’ll retract my statements in case
anyone were to start thinking that I’m shamelessly sticking to your
“What? Retract? No way!”
Master Dongfang hurriedly pulled a face, “Haven’t you heard of the
phrase, ‘a gentleman never takes back his word’? One should not go back
on one’s word so it’s decided, you will now go immediately and help me
persuade your maternal grandmother to come down from the mountain. I’ve
already used up all my chances this year. I haven’t seen her is so many
months and I’ll have to wait another five to six months for the next
year. I really can’t wait any longer. I used to only envy Ze’er alone but
now you’ve appeared, you damned girl. You’ll all surely anger me to an
