Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-651
“Alright.” Ye Lan nodded and said, “Xingtian, wait for me outside. I’ll
come out later.”
Ye Xingtian wanted to say something but he saw the determined look on his
father’s face. In the end, he could only sigh exasperatedly before
joining his fists and exiting the room.
“Bodyguard Gu, that fiancé of yours comes first. I’ll acknowledge him as
your first husband but I want to be your second husband.”
Ye Nuo raised his little chin cockily but he ultimately felt a little
worried so he continued, “I’m small so please don’t let him bully me.”
Gu Ruoyun’s face immediately turned black and Ye Lan, was next to her,
stood up before she could speak. Like an eagle catching a chick, he
picked Ye Nuo up and threw him out of the room. He then closed the door
with a loud bang.
“Little girl, don’t listen to that boy’s blind chatter.” Ye Lan looked
slightly embarrassed, “He just doesn’t want to leave you so he thinks
that if he marries you, you wouldn’t ever leave him.”
Gu Ruoyun smiled, and said, “Let’s begin the treatment now.”
Time passed slowly and the dark night gradually covered the entire sky.
Ye Xingtian had intended to go elsewhere after he had left but he could
not stop worrying about his father. Eventually, he remained outside the
room and waited at the door.
As he watched the sky turn dark, he felt increasingly anxious and began
to pace back and forth worriedly. His eyes would glance occasionally at
the tightly-shut door to the room.
Finally, the door slowly opened and a figure dressed in white emerged.
The old man stroked his beard and walked down the steps with a smile on
Ye Xingtian’s eyes lit up and he hurriedly rushed forward before asking
worriedly, “How did it go?”
“Hehe,” Ye Lan chuckled, looking very pleased indeed, “It was very
relaxing, far more relaxing than my sessions with the Hell’s Lotus!
Perhaps this girl is truly capable of curing my ailment.”
Ye Xingtian felt dazed and a wild feeling of happiness was taking over
his heart. He had not felt this excited in years.
“Ah, right. Xingtian, you mustn’t let anyone else know about this.” A
light flashed in Ye Lan’s eyes as he smiled, “Including Xinglin!”
Ye Xinglin was astonished and he stared at his father with a puzzled look
on his face.
“Why must we keep this from Second Brother?”
“Xinglin is not like you. He is far too kind and too trusting.” Ye Lan
replied exasperatedly, “Also, all these years, many people may obey me on
the surface but in reality, some of the old people in the family don’t
seem to want to wait any longer. They can’t wait for my early demise and
are plotting to take over the Ye family! However, they have forgotten
that once I’m dead, the Ye family will cease to exist as well! Therefore,
I wanted to take this opportunity to see through the intentions of one
particular person. If Xinglin finds out about this, it will easily fall
into that person’s ears.”
Ye Lan sighed exasperatedly as he spoke.
Ye Xinglin wasn’t really a bad person, his only fault was that he trusts
people too easily.
Nevertheless, this can be a deadly flaw!
This was why I’ve asked Ye Xingtian to keep this from him.
“Understood.” Ye Xingtian nodded, “I’ll obey your wishes, Father. Once
we’ve weeded out the tumors in the family, we’ll give Second Little
Brother a surprise.”
“Mm.” Ye Lan closed his eyes in exhaustion. After a long pause, he opened
them again, “Xingtian, you should leave first. I’m tired as well and I’m
going to rest now. One more thing, please provide the Gu girl with good
hospitality. She is not just Nuo’er’s friend. You never know, she might
even become the Ye family’s savior. As for the Hell’s Lotus, you don’t
have to send out a search party anymore.”
