Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-498
“I choose the Spirit Sect.”
The young girl’s calm voice rang out as clearly as a bell throughout the
plaza, every syllable fell distinctly into every ear.
In contrast with Bai Xiangtian’s blackened face, a trace of
disappointment also flashed across Elder Jiu’s face. A girl with such
immense talent, he thought. Wouldn’t it be great if she had joined the
Courts of Hell?
A black-faced Bai Xiangtian scoffed coldly. He swept his gaze across Gu
Ruoyun’s face and exclaimed coldly, “So, you refuse to join the Immortal
Realm? You’ll regret this!”
This girl is not only valiant and talented but vicious and merciless as
well. If someone like her refuses to join the Immortal Realm then I…
have no choice but to make her disappear, to stamp out a potential
disaster in the future!
Bai Xiangtian slowly turned his attention to Zuo Shangchen at the thought
of this and spoke coldly, “Young Master of the Dark Yin Palace, I’ve long
heard news of your great talent. I hope you won’t make the same foolish
decision as her.”
Zuo Shangchen stretched out lazily on his sedan and replied with smiling
eyes, “My apologies, wherever Xiao Yun’er goes, I follow. I’m choosing
the same Authority as well.”
His face, as beautiful as a peach blossom, was filled with an enchanting
smile. His peach-blossom-pink robes fluttered against the gentle breeze
like petals in the wind.
Bai Xiangtian’s expression turned cold. Just as he was about to speak up,
the Honorable Sir Tianqi cut him off.
“Bai Xiangtian, these are the personal decisions of the young ones. Do
you still intend on forcing them?”
Bai Xiangtian scoffed coldly again, hiding the murderous intent in his
Once Gu Ruoyun and Zuo Shangchen made their decisions, the rest began
choosing the Authority they wished to join. Wei Yiyi naturally chose to
follow Gu Ruoyun and Rongyue chose the Immortal Realm, predictably.
Her choice somewhat calmed Bai Xiangtian.
Once everyone has chosen their desired jurisdiction on the spot, the
crowd slowly began to disperse. In contrast with the number of new
disciples that the Immortal Realm and the Spirit Sect had received, the
new recruits in the Courts of Hell were far and few in between…
In the guest house, a semi-conscious Linlang gently opened her eyes. She
tried to move but ended up aggravating her wounds. She gasped from the
“Linlang, you’re awake?”
Dongfang Changjin spotted Linlang’s movements from the corner of her eye.
She hurriedly approached her and coaxed gently, “Your wounds are not
fully healed. It’s best that you rest now.”
“Master,” Linlang raised her sparkling eyes, staring seriously up at
Changjin, “I did not let you down. I defeated Gu Ling. But in the end, I
Suddenly, an airy voice was heard, coming from a close proximity. The
young girl’s raven hair was like a rippling waterfall and her green robes
gave off a clear, cool glow under the moonlight, “Why didn’t you use the
weapon that I’ve given you?”
“I…” Linlang lightly bit her lip and replied, “I wanted to defeat Gu
Ling with my own strength. I did not want to use a spiritual weapon in
this sort of situation.”
Gu Ruoyun fell silent and did not pursue the matter. But when Linlang
assumed that she had gotten angry with her, Gu Ruoyun hurriedly
continued, “Don’t worry, I will make the Gu family escort your parents
back to you in a palanquin with eight carriers.”
Linlang’s heart softened as tears began welling up in her eyes. How many
years has it been since I last saw my parents? How many years have I had
to live my life, longing for them…
“Lady Gu, thank you. Truly, thank you. If it were not for you, this day
would never have come…”
“If you really want to thank me, then protect the Dongfang family with
everything you have from now on. This is the best reciprocation for me.
Alright, we should make our way back to the Dongfang family home
tomorrow. You’d better get some rest.”
