Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-8
Gu Ruoyun’s line of sight followed along that long robe, eventually
landing on a man’s face; and she couldn’t look away.
In the Dongyue mainland, of all the handsome men she had seen, it was Jin
Di who had been the most captivating. However, the man before her was no
less mesmerising than Jin Di, and could even be ranked higher than Jin
The man was clothed entirely in purple. His sleeves were embroidered with
golden threads, giving off a sense of nobility and splendor. A head of
inky black hair was scattered loosely on his back, and an enchanting
aroma floated by with a slight breeze. His features were so beautiful to
the point that everything else lost their colour in an instant. A light
wind set his purple clothes slightly flowing, a backdrop that added to
the devilish enchantment of the purple flame between his brows.
Suddenly, the man raised his hand and a gentle breeze passed by. When Gu
Ruoyun had recovered her senses, she had already fallen into his
“So this is the master that the Ancient Divine Pagoda selected? This
body feels too skinny, it’s not nice to embrace at all. Girl, you need
to feed yourself properly. When you grow a little fatter, come warm my
Gu Ruoyun’s face darkened instantly. She lifted her leg to kick at him;
who knew that the other had already been prepared, and even chuckled as
he caught her foot.
“Girl, you were strong in the past, but now, you’re only a little
shrimp that’s only Qi level two. Did you think that sneak attack would
work on me?”
Gu Ruoyun withdrew her leg. Looking towards the handsomely noble man in
front of her, she asked: “Who are you?”
“Girl, aren’t you too cold? I brought you here from the Dongyue
mainland, and you actually forgot who I am?” The man said in an
aggrieved manner, “I did save your life, otherwise your soul would have
been scattered to the four winds.”
From Dongyue mainland?
Gu Ruoyun startled for a moment: “You’re the Ancient Divine Pagoda.”
Upon hearing this, the corner of his mouth twitched a few times: “The
Ancient Divine Pagoda? When have you ever seen a pagoda turn into a
human? I’m the Ancient Divine Pagoda’s companion beast, Zixie!”
“Zixie? The ancient phoenix Zixie?”
The people of the Xiling mainland may not have heard of Zixie’s
existence, but in the Dongyue mainland, it was impossible to find someone
who did not know of this name.
The ancient phoenix Zixie, said to have the power to create worlds and
flatten entire empires with a single breath. His abilities were so strong
that they could make anyone’s heart stop.
However, tens of thousands of years ago, Zixie had long disappeared. Who
would have expected him to appear here…
“Girl, isn’t it shocking?” Zixie curved his lips, smiling as he
said: “You have already contracted with the Ancient Divine Pagoda when
you were fleeing for your life; as long as your soul remains intact, the
Pagoda will follow your soul forever. However, I and the Pagoda have both
been sealed. If you had lifted the seal on the Dongyue mainland, those
old monsters would have detected it, so I had no way to help you. I was
only able to lift the seal when you arrived here in Xiling…”
Gu Ruoyun nodded her head: “So that was it. This Ancient Divine Pagoda
was gifted to me by my grandfather, I didn’t even know what use it
“I can’t explain the uses of this Pagoda immediately.. However, you
know that this Pagoda was something left behind since the ancient times,
so how could a divine artifact from the ancient times be useless?
Zixie smiled and rubbed Gu Ruoyun’s head: “Didn’t you challenge
someone to a duel? With this Ancient Divine Pagoda, within a month,
I’ll raise your power to exceed his!”
He knew that Gu Ruoyun could borrow the combat experience from her
previous life, and have a 50% chance of defeating the Ling family’s
young master, but what he wanted to do, was to let her be completely
certain of defeating the enemy…
Interesting fact: Zixie (紫邪) translates to ‘purple evil’. Which
is also why he has a purple flame between his brows, and why he wears
While I’m at it, here are some extra notes for other people and place
names and their meanings.
In Gu Ruoyun’s previous life, her surname was Xia (夏), which means
‘summer’. Her current surname, Gu (顾) doesn’t have any particular
meaning by itself.
The given name of Gu Ruoyun’s brother, Gu Shengxiao (顾笙箫), means
The Dongyue mainland has the character ‘east’ in it, while the Xiling
mainland has the character ‘west’
Qinglong (青龙) means ‘green dragon’
