Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-449
Just as she spoke, the young man in green who had spoken up for Linlang
hurriedly stepped forward and said, “Lady Gu, I’m willing to substitute
for Linlang and step out of the trials.”
“Dongfang Hen, thank you.”
Linlang stared in gratitude at Dongfang Hen and replied.
Dongfang Hen blushed at the sight of the girl’s grateful-looking eyes and
quickly stepped back. He shook his head and replied, “Linlang, you don’t
have to thank me. Remember to hit that Gu Ling kid hard, we’re all
rooting for you!”
He shook his fist and smiled at Linlang.
Linlang began to choke with emotion but said nothing more, placing all
her gratitude in her heart.
“Seeing as we’ve pretty much decided on the team members, then let us
welcome tomorrow’s Trials with open arms. Today, you will all go back and
train well. Linlang, come see me after this.”
As she spoke, she left the place without a second glance.
Seeing this, Linlang hurriedly followed Gu Ruoyun. Her eyes were shining
with the light of resolution.
Inside the room, a gentle breeze stirred the bed curtains, causing them
Gu Ruoyun was seated in front of a table. She gazed at the girl standing
before her and said, “All of them had obtained the weapons of their
choice during the trade fair. Only you have not. At that time, I
mentioned that I would give you a weapon that is far better than a
crippled spirit weapon. This sword has been specially prepared for you.
Have a look and see if you can wield it.”
Then, she produced a rapier before Linlang’s eyes.
Just as she presented the rapier, a strong wave of spiritual energy
flourished from the sword, giving off the sense of strong power.
Linlang was dazed and stared in shock at the rapier in Gu Ruoyun’s hands.
Her lips trembled, unsure of what to say.
A spiritual weapon! She thought in astonishment. That’s right, only a
spiritual weapon can give off such thick spiritual energy! When she told
me that she would give me a much better weapon, she wasn’t lying!
“Lady Gu, this… This is far too valuable, I…” Linlang bit her lip
fiercely and stared at Gu Ruoyun in complete gratitude, “I can’t accept
A spiritual weapon. If news of this were to get out, I’m afraid that even
the Three Great Authorities will be shaken, she thought. Yet she’s
actually giving it to me! I may never be able to return this favor, not
even if I were to use my entire life.
“You may hold on to this spiritual weapon on one condition: You must only
use it as a last resort.”
The young girl’s calm voice made Linlang’s heart tremble. She gazed at
the spiritual weapon before her and slowly took a deep breath, “Alright,
Lady Gu, this spiritual weapon is your gift to me so I shall accept it.
But I will not use it in the Trials this time, I want to rely on my own
abilities to defeat Gu Ling in the Trials!”
At this moment, a new form of determination stemmed from her heart — no
matter what, she will never use the spiritual weapon. Also, she would not
cause trouble for Lady Gu. Even if she has to rely on her own
capabilities, she will not lose!
Gu Ruoyun smiled. The reason why she had allowed Linlang to participate
in the Trials was because she could see her determination.
With such a strong resolve, perhaps Linlang will be able to change her
fortunes in the Trials!
“Make your preparations for the Trials tomorrow. Our Dongfang Family must
obtain first place in the Divine Trials no matter what!”
As she said this, Gu Ruoyun narrowed her eyes and a glint of light
flashed across them.
Big brother, wait for me. Wait for me to find you in the Spirit Sect, she
thought. When that time comes, no one in the entire Spirit Sect will dare
to lay a single hand on you!
But I don’t know where Yu’er is at the moment.
Every time she thought of Xia Linyu, a small hint of anxiety would appear
on Gu Ruoyun’s face.
They only managed to see each other for such a short period of time and
who knows when they’ll meet again! However, Gu Ruoyun believes that he
was somewhere on the mainland, alive and well. Once the Trials end, she
will find him even if she has to journey to the ends of the earth!
