Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-624
“Alright.” Master Murong’s eyes shone and he chuckled, “Since the Lord
Governor will have your official residence, the organizations will be
serving at the governor’s palace and not the Murong family home once it
has been constructed. Now, I’d like to discuss the ranks of the
first-class forces, is that alright?”
Gu Ruoyun fell silent.
I can’t possibly stay in Black Rock City forever. They need someone else
to take care of things. The Three Great Authorities may have great power
but the Murong family had been following me longer than anyone else so my
feelings towards them are stronger. I’m afraid that only the Murong
family can take over this position.
As he watched the look on Gu Ruoyun’s face, Master Murong began to feel
slightly anxious. He suddenly felt as if his requests were too intrusive,
perhaps the governor feels that he was being too greedy because of this?
He would never be able to recover her previously good impression of him.
Just as Master Murong was about to change his suggestion, the woman’s
serene voice sounded, “I’ll agree with your request. If I leave Black
Rock City, you will take my place and govern Black Rock City in my stead.”
Master Murong temporarily went into a daze. He began to suspect that he
was hearing things.
After all, his power was not much of a match in Black Rock City yet Gu
Ruoyun had ignored Mei Xue and the other two who were the most powerful
cultivators of all to put Black Rock City into his care.
How much trust does she have on me to have made such a decision?
Master Murong was touched, “Lord Governor, don’t worry, I won’t let you
“I’m going to continue my cultivation. Don’t bother me unless it’s
something important. One more thing, that Mo Liyou isn’t too bad. You can
make him your right-hand man.”
To have a Martial Honor be his right-hand man — that’s something that
Master Murong would never have considered.
But now that he has that chance, how could he not feel excited?
It was also this very moment that he silently made an oath — he will
never betray Gu Ruoyun’s trust towards him.
Even if she did leave Black Rock City someday, he would work hard in
expanding its power and await her return.
The construction of the governor’s palace required several months even if
they built it in the fastest way possible.
In these few months, Gu Ruoyun had sent out numerous people to secretly
uncover news of the Hell’s Lotus. Unfortunately, nothing came of it. At
the same time, within these past few months, she has improved herself
tremendously. Even though she was unable to break through to the rank of
a mid-level Martial Honor, she was able to fully control her powers as a
low-level Martial Honor. Now, if she was to face a high-level Martial
Honor as an enemy, they would be evenly matched in the battle.
Of course, the most effective outcome was that once the disciples of
Black Rock City saw how she had shut herself in for many months and work
hard in her cultivation, it brought a huge wave of cultivation fever
To them, Gu Ruoyun’s achievements were definitely connected with her
diligent effort in making every second count during her cultivation.
If a genius like her could work this hard, what right did they have to
So, the result of Gu Ruoyun’s cultivation was to push Black Rock City
into an upgrade.
It was during the completion of the governor’s palace when she received
This news had nothing to do with the Hell’s Lotus but it was of Ye Nuo,
who was finally willing to return to the Ye family.
However, before his departure, Ye Nuo held onto Gu Ruoyun and cried until
mucus overflowed from his nostrils. In the end, Ye Lan could no longer
bear the sight of it and dragged Ye Nuo by the lapels of his robes,
resembling an eagle capturing a small chick, and dragged him out the
door. He simply could not let this guy embarrass himself anymore.
Obviously, Ye Lan’s irritation did not discourage Ye Nuo at all. As such,
the boy’s tender but distinguished voice sounded throughout the entire
“Bodyguard Gu, I’m leaving now. You must think of me and I’ll come back
for you. Wait for me to return and make you my wife!”
Gu Ruoyun’s face immediately turned dark. A ten-year-old kid is saying
that he plans on making me his wife? This feels… Simply too awkward.
