Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-48
“So you want to let your eldest miss absorb my spiritual force? Like
you’ve done to others?” Gu Ruoyun looked towards Hun Fei with a face
full of smiles. Her eyes were filled with humour, “So my observations
were right. Shiyun is cultivating a sinister art. She needs to absorb
spiritual force from others in order to extend her life or increase her
General Luo gaped in astonishment. The Weapon Refining Sect’s eldest
miss was actually doing such evil deeds to increase her power? He had
never heard of something like that before!
Hun Fei wasn’t bothered at all that Gu Ruoyun had seen through them. He
laughed in ridicule: “Eldest Miss is our Weapon Refining Sect’s
greatest genius and the hope of the entire mainland! Eldest Miss may be
the only one on this entire mainland who’s capable of defeating the
demons! No matter how many people we have to sacrifice, it’s for the
sake of the mainland so they should have sacrificed themselves anyway!
Furthermore, they had all volunteered themselves. Gu Ruoyun, if you
continue living, you’d only be wasting the resources of this mainland.
Why not make a sacrifice for the whole mainland? Not everyone has the
qualifications to become a sacrifice for the greater good. If not for my
Weapon Refining Sect, you wouldn’t have the chance to leave your mark
The meaning implied in his words was that Gu Ruoyun needed to be grateful
for the chance he had given her to become a martyr for the mainland,
otherwise she wouldn’t have been able to have such a chance at all.
“Since you’ve put it that way, then if someone wants to kill you in
the future, you have to be grateful to him as well. Grateful that he got
rid of a scourge of the mainland. Otherwise, who knows how many more
innocents would have died in the hands of your Weapon Refining Sect? Oh,
wait, maybe everyone on this mainland would be grateful to him by then.”
An enraged aura suddenly burst out from Hun Fei’s body, and he stared
at Gu Ruoyun with cold eyes. He said word by word, “Gu Ruoyun, how dare
you! You’re just a good-for-nothing. If your spiritual force helps heal
our eldest miss or even helps her breakthrough, then you would actually
have contributed something to this mainland. However, you refused to
appreciate this opportunity and you even dared to spout such drivel!
You’re just determined to become infamous in history! If you insist on
doing so, then you must suffer the condemnation of all. When the mainland
is destroyed, you’ll become the chief culprit! When that time comes,
everyone will treat you like an enemy. Your kin and descendants will be
ashamed of you! Is that what you want?”
“Haha!” Gu Ruoyun laughed out loud. A trace of mockery hung on the
corner of her lips as she said, “Could it be, that in your eyes, it’s
only natural that all the people on this earth should become sacrifices
for the sake of your Weapon Refining Sect? And those who refuse to comply
are enemies of the world?”
“Of course!” Hun Fei raised his head proudly and sneered, “Our
Weapon Refining Sect holds the responsibility of fighting against the
demons, for the sake of the peace of the mainland. The mainland will only
be able to survive if we are strong. Your sacrifices won’t be in
Even as someone who had lived two lives, it was only Gu Ruoyun’s second
time meeting someone this shameless. Of course, the very first one was
her father from her previous life. These two were nearly matched in the
extent of their shamelessness, it was such a pity that they couldn’t
become sworn brothers.
“That…” Gu Ruoyun paused for a moment before smiling as she spoke,
“Why do I have to sacrifice my life for the mainland? Do I owe them
anything? I’ve never taken pleasure in helping others. I only know that
I must do whatever is beneficial to myself. So what if everyone on this
earth dies? It’s fine as long as the people I care about survive.”
Hun Fei’s expression had been warped beyond recognition by his rage.
He had thought that this would be an easy task. There weren’t many
chances to make your mark on the annals of history, so she should be
eager to take the opportunity. What was wrong with sacrificing yourself
for the greater good? He felt that this woman was not only a
good-for-nothing, but an idiot as well!
