Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-437
The banquet didn’t last for very long and ended soon after. However, just
as Gu Ruoyun and the others were about to retire to their lodgings at the
guest house, they were greeted by an unfamiliar guest.
Gu Ruoyun frowned as she stared at the woman who was dressed in white
robes before her, “I have never had any relations with the Medicine
Order. What business do you have with me?”
A piece of white muslin concealed the woman’s face and no one could see
her features clearly. She appeared to carry herself in a sweet, fair, and
graceful manner. Her movements were refined and it was easy to imagine
that a beautiful face was hidden beneath the white muslin.
“I’m here to ask you something, is Wei Yiyi with you now?”
Gu Ruoyun raised an eyebrow, “That’s right, Wei Yiyi is with me.”
“Really?” The woman’s voice turned joyful, “I haven’t introduced myself.
My name is Wu Yue, a disciple of Nan Xiao. Wei Yiyi can be considered as
my senior fellow student.”
Nan Xiao was the only daughter of the previous Master of the Medicine
Order and Wei Yiyi’s junior sister. Years ago, when Wei Yiyi was being
forced to surrender the Treasury of Medicine, it was Nan Xiao who had
placed her own life in danger and secretly broke her out of her prison.
If it weren’t for Nan Xiao, Wei Yiyi would probably have died at the
hands of that wretched couple.
So, upon hearing Nan Xiao’s name, Gu Ruoyun felt her heart move and
asked, “You’re Nan Xiao’s disciple? May I know why you do not dare show
your true face to me?”
Wu Yue trembled, she looked as if she was hesitating but in the end
seemed to make a decision. She slowly placed one hand on the muslin,
gently removing it.
Upon seeing the face behind the white muslin, Gu Ruoyun’s originally calm
smile changed greatly.
“This was why I did not want to meet you with my true face,” Wu Yue
smiled bitterly, “I know that you are enemies with Shi Yun of the Weapon
Refining Sect and as luck would have it, I look exactly like her.”
That’s right, if one were to overlook the great scar running through her
face, this woman basically looked just like Shi Yun.
But Gu Ruoyun knew that she was not Shi Yun!
Not only was there a vast difference between their auras, the woman
before her also did not carry that familiar sense of comfort! The martial
art that Shi Yun practices allowed her to give off a gentle and
comforting aura, but the person in front of her does not have that
“What is your relationship to Shi Yun?” Gu Ruoyun frowned as she asked.
Wu Yue smiled bitterly, “My real name is Shi Yue. It was Master who had
changed my name to Wu Yue. Shi Yun is my twin sister! However, ever since
we were young, my gifts had always been more powerful than hers. Later
on, I don’t know how it happened but she received a new technique. She
absorbed my spiritual force which ended up increasing her own powers. She
did not like having somebody who looked exactly like her and believed
that only her looks alone deserve to be considered as the number one
under the heavens. So she destroyed my face and imprisoned me in a
dungeon, telling the rest of the world that I had died. Every day she
would come and torture me. In the end, I feigned my own death in order to
escape. I was thrown into an unmarked grave. Fortunately, Master happened
to pass by and saved me.”
Gu Ruoyun fell silent.
Honestly, she was completely shocked by Wu Yue’s words. She never thought
that Shi Yun had an identical twin sister. This revelation required a
long time for her to digest.
“Does the Sect Master of the Weapon Refining Sect know about this matter?”
She asked after a long, melancholic pause.
Wu Yue shook her head indifferently, “So what if he doesn’t know and so
what if he does? That man only prioritizes benefits. Shi Yun is more
powerful than I am. Why would he seek justice for my sake? Furthermore,
the Weapon Refining Sect has now been destroyed and that man’s
whereabouts were unknown. I have no need to tell him anything. Now, I
only have my Master in my life. Lady Gu, if you happen to see senior aunt
Wei, you must tell her that Master is in a very difficult situation now.
Those people are racking their brains for ways to do something to her, I
truly hope that senior aunt Wei can lend her a hand.”
