Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-824
Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders and stared at Xia Ming with a smile
which did not reach her eyes, “You’re certain?”
Xia Ming scoffed coldly and raised his head arrogantly. A malicious light
flashed in his eyes, “A spoken agreement is not binding. Do you think
that these people would choose to believe you or me?”
“Alright. Since you’re so confident, I don’t wish to say anything else to
you. As for Lu Chen, I won’t release him now. Go back to the Xia family
home immediately. I’ll release him when I feel like it.”
Gu Ruoyun curled her lips as a glint flashed across her eyes.
“Gu Ruoyun!” Xia Ming expression sank, “Are you certain that you want to
make Supreme Jin your enemy?”
“Do you think that Supreme Jin would still come to your aid if he found
out about the truth?”
“Haha.” Xia Ming laughed as if he had just heard a hilarious joke, “I’m
Xia Ruoyun’s biological father. If he won’t help even me, why should he
help an outsider like you? Let me tell you this, Supreme Jin will aid the
Xia family forever! He would not believe you no matter how much
explanations you give! Xue’er, we’re leaving!”
Xia Ming turned his icy gaze away. However, he paused before he left and
said, “Gu Ruoyun, you better release Lu Chen. Otherwise, I’ll make you
pay for what you’ve done!”
He then left without a second look back.
Xia Chuxue watched her father’s figure and gritted her teeth. She turned
towards Qianbei Ye and said, “My Lord, I apologize to you and Miss Gu in
my father’s stead. In truth, he had also suffered greatly that year. All
of this had happened because of me. If there’s anyone you wish to hate,
hate me but please forgive my father.”
Gu Ruoyun lowered her gaze as her heart snorted with an icy laugh.
If I had not become aware of Xia Chuxue’s true nature long ago, perhaps I
would be blinded by her righteous and awe-inspiring words.
Besides, her eyes had been fixed on Qianbei Ye from the very beginning.
Her intentions cannot be concealed from the others.
Qianbei Ye furrowed his brows and an eerie light flashed in his eyes.
Suddenly, he smiled and his lips curled into a peerlessly beautiful
angle, “Then, Miss Xia, why don’t you explain the kind of hardships your
father has endured?”
This man’s smile was absolutely beautiful, so beautiful that one cannot
help but feel moved. If Xia Chuxue’s heart does not belong to that
person, she might have become deeply enchanted by him.
Each time she thought of that golden-haired man in the golden robes, she
would smile bitterly.
When will I ever be able to enter that man’s heart?
Why is it that he’s still unable to forget a dead person and never
accepted my love even after so many years? It has grown to such an extent
that my love has turned into hatred and I purposely made others spread
slanderous gossips about Xia Ruoyun so that she would disappear from
Supreme Jin’s heart.
However, Xia Chuxue had forgotten that Supreme Jin had been protecting
the Xia family for Xia Ruoyun’s sake. If he no longer misses Xia Ruoyun,
what use would he have for the Xia family?
“Father loves me far too much,” Xia Chuxue smiled bitterly and lamented
sorrowfully, “Because Older Sister had snatched away the Ancient Divine
Pagoda which was mine by right, he had gone mad with disappointment and
ended up doing all of this! That year, I had tried to reason with him but
no matter how hard I tried, I could not prevent this from happening. I’m
now filled with remorse! I hate myself for being so useless and for being
unable to help my older sister! I’ve even blamed my father deep down.
It’s only an Ancient Divine Pagoda after all, how could it be more
important than my older sister? However, he has always believed that
Older Sister was too cruel. Additionally, the Mo family had threatened my
life so he had no choice but to commit these acts.”
