Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-803
Xia Ming narrowed his eyes as a cold light flashed in the corner of his
pupils before disappearing as quickly as it came. He smiled and
approached Gu Ruoyun, “Miss Gu, previously my daughter did not know any
better and had offended you. I’ve just taught her a lesson. Please, Miss
Gu, do not be calculative with a child.”
Gu Ruoyun lowered her eyes, concealing her cold smile.
It has been six years!
He still hasn’t changed at all!
Once, this hypocritical face had not only fooled the world but had also
fooled me for many years! Years ago, no matter how much Xia Ming disliked
my mother, he was still quite loving to me, his trueborn daughter.
But all of this changed when Grandfather passed away!
Gu Ruoyun contained the murderous intent in her eyes and lifted her head
to face Xia Ming’s handsome face as if nothing had happened. She smiled
and said, “I have an appointment with Mo Shangfei and I’m here to see
him. I wonder if Mo Shangfei is here today?”
“Oh?” A suspicious light flashed in Xia Ming’s eyes, “He had just got
back. I’ll send someone to inform him. Miss Gu, may I ask, whose
succession of disciples are you from?”
On the East Peak Mainland, there doesn’t seem to be a powerful family by
the surname of Gu. Since that’s the case, her family must not be very
Hence, Xia Ming wanted to find the identity of her master!
Gu Ruoyun laughed coldly, “What? Does the Xia family have a habit of
investigating the families of others?”
“Hehe,” Xia Ming chuckled in embarrassment as his eyes flashed with an
icy light, “I’m just asking. After all, Mo Shangfei is a member of the
Xia family so I must know the friends that he corresponds with. Please be
assured, Miss Gu, I harbor no ill intentions.”
Gu Ruoyun swept a glance at Xia Ming. Her voice was calm and indifferent,
“I do not belong to any sect or order. I operate alone.”
Hearing this, Xia Ming sighed with relief. Since this woman does not have
any support behind her, then everything after this would be easy.
However, just as he was about to speak, he saw Mo Shangfei escorted by
some servants into the room and swallowed his words.
These matters can be settled behind the scene, I have no need to put it
all out in the open. Otherwise, if we destroy the Xia family’s
hard-earned reputation for the sake of this woman, it would be too much
of a waste.
Mo Shangfei’s eyes lit up at the sight of Gu Ruoyun. He hurriedly stepped
forward and his face was full of excitement, “You’re really here.”
“Mm,” Gu Ruoyun nodded, “I calculated the speed of your journey and
estimated that you should reach here by today so I paid a visit to the
Xia family home to see you. I had promised you, after all.”
Actually, Mo Shangfei was worried that Gu Ruoyun would break her promise.
He never thought that she would actually show up. This has certainly
surpassed his expectations.
While this young lady was acquainted with Cousin Ruoyun, we don’t exactly
know each other and she was not obligated to help a stranger.
“Shangfei, do you and Miss Gu know each other?” Xia Ming mildly raised an
eyebrow and turned his gaze towards Mo Shangfei.
Mo Shangfei nodded, “Yes, this young lady is an old friend of my cousin.
This is how we know each other.”
Xia Ming shook and analyzed Gu Ruoyun once again.
This woman was acquainted with my disobedient and unfilial daughter?
Since that’s the case, it’s even more crucial that we do not let her off!
Xia Ming took a deep breath at the thought but his handsome face still
lifted into a smile, “Ah, is that so? I didn’t think that Miss Gu would
actually be acquainted with my poor daughter. Sigh, what a pity for my
poor daughter, a beauty who passed away at such a young age. Her enemy,
the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian, is still at large!”
As he spoke, he wiped a tear from the corner of his eye and sighed. His
entire face was filled with sorrow and pain.
