Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-689
The Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Ice Crystal?
The entire room fell silent as they heard these words.
“Ahem.” The Palace Lord cleared his throat and replied in a frail voice,
“The Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Ice Crystal is the township treasure of the
Amethyst Underworld Palace. I’ve had it brought over from afar in order
to use it to preserve my corpse after I’ve passed on. If you need it,
Lady Gu, I can loan it to you for a while but I will need it back after
Elder Da’s expression changed. He wanted to speak but was suddenly
reminded of the debt of gratitude he owed Gu Ruoyun for saving the Palace
Lord. Hence, he swallowed his words.
“Then I thank you greatly.”
A sincere smile slowly brought warmth to her clear and cold eyes. Gu
Ruoyun had never imagined that this mission would be resolved so easily.
The delicate-looking youth did not say a word. He fixed his clear, limpid
eyes upon Gu Ruoyun with a gaze filled with absolute gratitude.
If it wasn’t for them, Father might already be dead. Also, to the
Amethyst Underworld Palace, one Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Ice Crystal was
nothing when compared to Father’s life.
After obtaining the Ten-Thousand-Year-Old Ice Crystal, Gu Ruoyun decided
to return to the Dongfang family home. However, just as she stepped out
from the gates of the Amethyst Underworld Palace, a figure appeared
before her and addressed her respectfully, “Lady Gu, our Elder has
extended an invitation for you to be our guest.”
“Who is your Elder?” Gu Ruoyun frowned and asked.
“My Elder is the Honorable Sir Tianqi of the Spirit Sect.”
The Honorable Sir Tianqi?
Gu Ruoyun was stunned. How had that guy found out that I was at the
Amethyst Underworld Palace? Also, why had he come looking for me in such
“Alright, lead the way,” She frowned and replied calmly.
Even if the Honorable Sir Tianqi knew about my departure from the
Banished Lands, he wouldn’t send another person to intercept me at the
Amethyst Underworld Palace. Usually, he would visit me at the Dongfang
As such, Gu Ruoyun had no idea on what was going on in the Spirit Sect.
Could it be that something has happened to Big Brother?
Gu Ruoyun’s heart clenched at the thought. Even her footsteps quickened.
In this world, besides Xia Linyu, her only other brother was Gu
Shengxiao! Hence, she would never allow any harm to come to him no matter
At a laboratory in the Spirit Sect, an elder examined the herbs in his
hand as he furrowed and relaxed his brows over and over again. This
scared the people around him from approaching him, afraid that the old
man had gone into another random fit of madness and would unleash his
anger upon them.
As this moment, a disciple of the Spirit Sect hurriedly walked in and
announced respectfully, “Elder Tianqi, Lady Gu has arrived. She’s waiting
or you outside the Spirit Sect.”
The Honorable Sir Tianqi’s face lit up with glee. Ignoring the herbs in
his hands, he immediately threw them behind him before his elderly figure
rushed out as swiftly as the wind.
In a large courtyard.
Her hair fluttered under a refreshing breeze.
The woman stood with her hands crossed. Dressed in green, she looked like
a slender bamboo tree, unyielding and steadfast. Her eyes, however, were
clear and cool, like something straight out of a portrait.
This woman did not have looks that could devastate nations but her
features were exquisite and very easy on the eyes.
Perhaps having noticed the elder rushing towards her, the woman gently
raised her eyes and lightly cocked an eyebrow. She spoke with a smile
that did not reach her eyes, “Honorable Sir Tianqi, why have you summoned
me in such a hurry? You’ve even sent someone to escort me from the
Amethyst Underworld Palace.”
The Honorable Sir Tianqi chuckled and rubbed his fists, “Little girl, I’m
your great-uncle after all. Your maternal grandmother is my younger
sister. Why are you still addressing me as the Honorable Sir Tianqi?”
