Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-817
Look here now, no matter how much this woman had previously pretended to
be uninterested, she could not help but smile when she heard that I was
willing to make her my wife! How much has she actually fallen for me that
she would be so happy once I had said those words?
“Marry you?” Gu Ruoyun smiled indifferently as her eyes filled with
mockery. She curled her lips and stared at the man before her, “You’re
willing to take me as your wife so I can’t refuse you? Are you… Even up
Lu Chen’s initially complacent expression froze in place upon hearing
those words. He could not believe his ears as he stared in shock at Gu
She has… Rejected me?
No one is this world can resist my charms! It’s absolutely impossible!
I was merely loosening the reins for a better grasp, I’ve seen a lot of
this sort of trickery from other women.
“Miss Gu, I know what troubles you. There’s no need to worry. As long as
I’m willing to take you as my wife, I guarantee that no one will dare say
that you are not worthy of me!”
Gu Ruoyun grinned. Her clear and cold gaze was filled with scorn, “Don’t
you understand what I’m saying? I’m asking if you are qualified to marry
me? Anyone who wishes to marry me must give the heavens and earth as my
betrothal gift as well as all the realms as a go-between. Yet you, I’m
afraid, will never fulfill these criteria in an entire lifetime.”
Lu Chen’s face changed drastically and a cold light flashed in his eyes.
Heavens and earth as a betrothal gift as well as all the realms as a
go-between? What a great mouthful!
Who does this woman think she is? Does she think she could disregard
everyone else just because she’s backed by the Holy Doctor? How
unfortunate, the Holy Doctor will end up dying by Supreme Jin’s hand. By
then, forget about me, not even a beggar would want to marry her!
The Little Princess, who had kept quiet entire time, shouted loudly and
shut Lu Chen up. She sent a complicated stare towards Lu Chen, pursed her
lips and said, “Big Brother Lu, since Sister Gu does not wish to marry
you, don’t force her. We’d better start off our party today. After all,
I’ve brought Sister Gu here to introduce her to all of you.”
Lu Chen steadied his emotions and smiled, “Little Princess, don’t you
worry. Yun’er has sent Miss Gu to console me. I won’t hurt her.”
The Little Princess glanced at Lu Chen before she quietly pulled Gu
Ruoyun and Mo Shangfei to sit beside her. She lowered her head and her
thoughts were concealed from everyone else.
Before the dinner party had gone on for too long, a group of young
disciples had horsed around and ended it all. Of course, through this
opportunity, Gu Ruoyun managed to grasp and understand the situation of
Drifting Wind Country.
At this time, as the sun was setting, the glow of twilight illuminated
the Imperial City of Drifting Wind Country.
In the quiet streets, the Little Princess paused in her steps as she
asked, “Sister Gu, don’t take what Big Brother Lu had said to heart.”
“I can ignore whatever he says”
Gu Ruoyun smiled but her smile carried an icy-cold aura, “However, if he
wants to provoke me, I see no reason to let him off.”
The Little Princess was momentarily stunned. She then laughed bitterly,
“I don’t know why but I feel as if Big Brother Lu has changed. He has
become strange to me, or you could say, I’ve never really known him that
well from the beginning.”
She lifted her gaze towards the magnificent sky and her fair little face
was filled with agony.
“Everyone thinks that I’m very naive. I am naive but I’m not foolish.
Previously, I’ve always thought that Big Brother Lu was a pretty alright
sort of person. However… How could one fall in love with another so
easily if he was truly in love? Xia Ruoyun has been dead for more than
six years now, it’s possible that someone can fade from his memory in six
years’ time. If he has forgotten her and is in love with Sister Chuxue, I
won’t blame him either. Not many on this mainland would remain single for
the rest of their lives for their dead lover.”
