Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-500
The following day.
The light of the morning sun was shining down upon all.
Most of the participating organizations have pretty much packed up their
luggage and were ready to leave.
Gu Ruoyun had just stepped out from the guest house when a figure in
peach-pink robes blocked her from leaving.
Zuo Shangchen smiled coquettishly. Even the phrase ‘a magnificence
unmatched in his generation’ would not be enough to describe his beauty.
As a result, Gu Ruoyun sighed and lamented to herself, why is a coquette
like this stuck in the body of a man?
If he had been born a woman, even Wei Yiyi, whose looks could cause the
downfall of nations would be no match for him.
“Xiao Yun’er, why isn’t your little footman with you today?”
Zuo Shangchen gently curled the corners of his lips as he shifted his
gaze to the space next to Gu Ruoyun. His grin broadened as he did not see
the silver-haired figure in red.
Gu Ruoyun calmly shot him a glance, “This matter does not concern you,
Fourth Prince. If there’s nothing else, I’ll take my leave.”
“Xiao Yun’er, come now. How many years of friendship have we had? I only
called him a little footman and you’re acting so cruelly. It really hurts
Zuo Shangchen clutched his heart dramatically with an obviously
exaggerated broken-hearted look on his face. But when matched with that
peerlessly beautiful face that could send all living things into a
frenzy, it caused the nearby womenfolk to feel completely irritated.
However, due to Gu Ruoyun’s display of great martial prowess in the
Trials, no one dared say a single word.
“Hurt?” Gu Ruoyun rolled her eyes, “How is it that I can’t really tell
that you’re actually sad? Zuo Shangchen, I’ve tolerated your antics time
and again on account of the fact that you’re my brother’s friend, but if
you do this one more time…”
She narrowed her eyes threateningly as she spoke, and smiled curtly, “I
won’t mind turning you into an actual woman!”
Zuo Shangchen’s expression immediately turned black. It took him a while
before he could compose himself and flash a stunning smile, “Alright,
I’ll stop toying with you. Xiao Yun’er, the Dark Yin Palace and the
Dongfang family will be using the same paths. How about we stick
together? What do you say?”
“My apologies.” Gu Ruoyun rubbed her nose, “But from what I can tell, the
Dark Yin Palace and the Dongfang family’s routes are quite far off.”
“Oh, so you know the address to the Dark Yin Palace, Xiao Yun’er?” Zuo
Shangchen grinned from ear to ear as if he did not feel embarrassed that
his lie was exposed. He took two steps closer to the young girl. Even his
breath held a flirtatious air, “However, for you, Xiao Yun’er, I’d make a
“As you like.”
Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders, “Wei Yiyi, Elder Changjin, let’s go.”
Dongfang Changjin and Wei Yiyi replied in unison and the Dongfang family
members promptly made their way towards the city gates.
The smile on Zuo Shangchen’s face gradually disappeared as he gestured at
the gorgeous maidservants carrying his palanquin with a wave of his fan,
“Remember, should any dangers arrive later, your sole duty is to protect
In that moment, the man’s face no longer held that frivolous smile. A
never-before-seen seriousness clouded his alluring eyes.
Knowing the Immortal Realm, they will never let this this matter go so
If one wishes to exit the city gates of Cloud City, they will need to
pass over a barren desert. At this moment, the number of travelers in the
dessert was exceedingly rare. Aside from the Dongfang family, there were
only a few scattered members from the other forces.
“It seems that the Medicine Order has left long ago. They should be out
of the city very soon. Wei Yiyi, let’s head to the city gate, we will
meet up with Xiao Ye there.”
Gu Ruoyun spoke calmly as she raised her head and stared at the clear
