Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-45
Shopkeeper Zhao did not even lift his eyes, he only kept himself busy
with the account books in his hands.
“Shopkeeper Zhao, I’m Gu Ruoyun’s second uncle, why won’t you
allow me to meet her? As powerful as your Hundred Herb Hall is, you
can’t just kidnap good citizens just like that!” Second Master Gu’s
expression turned ugly as his tone turned even stronger.
Hearing so, Shopkeeper Zhao put down the books in his hands and sneered
as he looked towards Second Master Gu: “You’re her second uncle? Then
how did I hear that all of you have already chased her out of the Gu
family at the imperial palace? You even told her not to regret it!
Judging by the current situation, your Gu Family is the one regretting
losing her, isn’t it? You’re even insulting our Hundred Herb Hall!
Our Hundred Herb Hall will never kidnap anyone no matter what! So please
leave, the person you want isn’t here.”
Business was booming at Hundred Herb Hall, so there were many people
buying herbs in the hall today.
After hearing the conversation between the two, many gazes shot towards
Second Master Gu.
Wasn’t it General Gu who had told Gu Ruoyun not to regret leaving the
Gu family! What was happening now? Was it really like Shopkeeper Zhao had
said, that the Gu family was regretting their decision?
Second Master Gu turned green, then red: “Shopkeeper Zhao, are you
really not going to release her? Gu Ruoyun’s name is still on my Gu
family’s register, she has not officially left the Gu family and is
still one of our Gu family! You’re being unreasonable for keeping
Hearing so, the guests in Hundred Herb Hall were in awe.
They had seen shameless people before, but they had never seen anyone
They were the ones who had spread that Gu Ruoyun was thrown out of the Gu
family, but now they were saying that Gu Ruoyun had never left the Gu
family. Did these people have even a shred of dignity left?
“Since Second Master Gu isn’t willing to leave, then please make
yourself comfortable. I did not kidnap Gu Ruoyun, and I don’t have
anyone to hand over to you.”
Saying so, Shopkeeper Zhao lowered his head to continue looking at the
accounts, not giving a second look to the black-faced Second Master Gu.
Are you joking? The young master had already ordered that no one from the
Gu family was allowed to meet with Gu Ruoyun! Did they dare to disobey?
However, this guy was way too shameless, he even dared to claim that they
had kidnapped the eldest miss…
The young master had given Hundred Herb Hall to the eldest miss, he
wouldn’t dare to do such a thing even if he were 100 times more daring.
They were clearly trying to trap him by accusing him of crime.
Thinking of this, the hate towards Second Master Gu in Shopkeeper
Zhao’s heart increased.
However, this was Second Master Gu’s unexpected misfortune, he could
not know that a single sentence would cause Shopkeeper Zhao to start
Seeing that pleading Shopkeeper Zhao had come to no avail, Second Master
Gu gathered up the resolve in his heart and shouted: “Gu Ruoyun, I know
you’re here, come out now! Don’t think that you don’t have to obey
your uncle just because you’ve curried favour with Hundred Herb Hall!
Don’t forget, the Gu family’s blood runs in your veins! You were born
a member of the Gu family, and even in death, your soul belongs to the Gu
family! Even if your grandfather made a mistake, can’t you forgive him
because he’s old? The Gu family will be in trouble if you don’t come
out, and you’ll be condemned through the ages! It’ll be too late no
matter how much you regret it when the time comes!”
Shopkeeper Zhao wasn’t able to react in time, he couldn’t imagine
that Second Master Gu would do something like this. After regaining his
sense, his whole face paled and he shouted: “Men! Chase him out right
It was over, he hoped that Second Master Gu’s action hadn’t startled
the eldest miss, otherwise the young master would never forgive them!
After a moment, two brawny men walked in from within Hundred Herb Hall.
They picked up Second Master Gu and threw him out into the streets under
the stares of the crowd, drawing the eyes of passersby…
