Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-559
Regardless of the situation, she has only just arrived in the Banished
lands. If she wishes to search for the Hell’s Lotus in the vast landscape
of the Banished Lands, it would be impossible for her to do it alone.
Hence, she needed to build an organization!
Murong Yan was stunned and the excitement on her face slowly disappeared.
She hesitated and seemed to be unable to make a decision.
“Lady Gu, I may be the next in line to inherit the Murong family but
Grandfather has yet to pass on. I cannot make this decision.”
If this were any other request, Murong Yan would have agreed to it in a
heartbeat. However, the implications involving this request were far too
great. In fact, it involves the entire Murong household. She could not
make this decision on her own!
“You’ve misunderstood me.” Gu Ruoyun saw right through Murong Yan and
smiled calmly, “I do not wish to take over the Murong family, the seat of
power will remain with Master Murong! I only ask for the Murong family to
follow me! Everything else will remain the same.”
Murong Yan fell silent. She had initially hesitated because she was
worried that Gu Ruoyun would absorb the Murong family into her own
organization. If that were to happen, the Murong family would cease to
Seeing as the Murong family will still be around, I will agree to this in
Grandfather’s place to save his life.
“Alright, I agree.”
Murong Yan raised her head at the thought of this and spoke with absolute
determination, “But I also have a request – the Murong family name must
This girl is far too talented, following her will only bring benefits to
the Murong family. Nothing bad could happen!
“Take me to your grandfather.” Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders, “If I
see him in time, there’s a higher chance for him to be cured. If we
prolong his affliction, not even the Gods can save him then.”
Murong Yan’s chest tightened and she nodded, “Alright, Lady Gu. Come with
She then turned and led Gu Ruoyun towards Master Murong’s bedchamber.
In a large, bright bedroom, a pale old man lay silently on his bed.
This old man had wasted away until he was so skinny that he was the
literal personification of skin and bones. If it were not for the shallow
breaths from his nostrils, no one would believe that he was still alive!
“Lady Gu, can my grandfather still be saved?”
Murong Yan asked anxiously as she stared at Gu Ruoyun with a worried look
on her face.
Slowly, Gu Ruoyun relaxed her knitted eyebrows and calmly replied, “He
has been poisoned.”
Murong Yan and Lu Shaochen looked at each other and saw shock in each
Grandfather has always remained inside the Murong family and he hardly
ever goes out. How could he have been poisoned?
“Lady Gu, are you certain that he’s been poisoned?”
Murong Yan simply could not believe this conclusion.
“That’s right, he has been poisoned by a medicine that nibbles away at
his bones. This poison causes an individual to slowly waste away, leading
to an inevitable death. In nearly half a month, the effect will be
Gu Ruoyun replied calmly.
Murong Yan still held some belief over Gu Ruoyun’s words, she could not
possibly make a mistake about this.
“Who would be so cruel to harm my grandfather? Lady Gu, can my
grandfather be saved?” Murong Yan raised her gaze as she spoke, staring
up at the girl in green with anticipation.
Gu Ruoyun paused for a moment before slowly nodding, “I can save him but
I will need to spend a bit of time. I will draw the poison from his body
with a silver needle in a moment. We would probably need about five days
for him to recover completely.”
