Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-881
Grand Lord Hong Lian and Qianbei Ye returned to the tavern at the same
time. However, Gu Ruoyun could not help but feel shocked when she saw the
state they were in. These two men looked as if they had just fought a
huge battle. Their bodies were completely covered by the smell of smoke.
Both men also seemed to be wounded from the battle, making it very easy
for Gu Ruoyun to figure out what had happened.
From the looks of it, these two have just come out from a fight!
Grand Lord Hong Lian glanced at Qianbei Ye and scoffed coldly, “I have
something to say to my precious daughter.”
The meaning behind that sentence was very clear and he hoped that Qianbei
Ye would automatically leave.
Actually, Grand Lord Hong Lian was rather satisfied with Qianbei Ye as
his son-in-law. Besides, during their earlier fight, he could see that
Qianbei Ye had given way a little to him. Otherwise, he probably would
not have been able to hurt that fellow.
However, satisfaction was only just satisfaction. That did not mean that
he has decided to simply give his precious daughter away to him.
Qianbei Ye gently nodded and his warm, red eyes turned towards Gu Ruoyun.
His red lips curled into a smile as he said, “Yun’er, I’ll come by and
find you in a while.”
Gu Ruoyun smiled gently. Her eyes followed Qianbei Ye’s incomparably
beautiful figure as he left. She then turned her gaze towards the
handsome man standing before her.
Her mouth started to move as if she wished to say something but in the
end, she could not bring herself to speak.
In the tens of thousands of words she could have chosen, in the end, she
simply called out to him…
“Yun’er, I’ve always thought that the heavens were completely against me
by forcing me and your mother apart. However, it now seems that the hand
I was dealt was not entirely poor after all, at least they’ve sent you to
me.” Grand Lord Hong Lian smiled. His smile was filled with immeasurable
magnificence until even his grim and cold dark eyes were filled with joy.
His eyes only beheld the figure of the woman before him, “Now, with you
by my side, I’m filled with even greater motivation. One day, I will find
your mother and then our entire family will be reunited.”
Our entire family will be reunited!
This was something which had been absolutely out of reach to Gu Ruoyun in
However, she now has great confidence in that as well.
“Father, don’t worry, I’ll search for Mother’s whereabouts with you. I
believe that no matter where she is, she must be yearning for us just as
much as we’re yearning for her.”
Gu Ruoyun’s gaze darkened and a cold light flashed in the corner of her
eye, “However, can you now tell me what had happened in the past?
Including the First City as well? What is the grudge between you and the
Grand Lord Hong Lian smiled and his fingers gently caressed Gu Ruoyun’s
hair as he sighed, “Yun’er, do you know what lies above the rank of a
Gu Ruoyun paused before she answered, “A Semi-Saint?”
During her past life, she had been unable to reach this rank. Hence, she
does not have a very clear understanding of the ranks above a Martial
“No,” Grand Lord Hong Lian shook his head, “After Martial Supreme lies an
intersection, one can break through to become a Semi-Saint or immediately
reach the rank of a Martial Saint! Of course, if one was to break through
to become a Semi-Saint, then one would only remain as a Semi-Saint for
the rest of their life, never to reach the rank of a Martial Saint! The
reason why I had searched for a favorable circumstance in the snowfields
was so that I could avoid breaking through to the Semi-Saint rank.”
His meaning was obvious; if one reaches the rank of a Semi-Saint upon
their breakthrough, they would probably remain at that rank for the rest
of their life.
However, on this mainland, even a Semi-Saint was a certified powerful
cultivator that no one would dare to provoke. As for Martial Saints,
their existence could be likened to that of the feathers of a phoenix and
the horns of a unicorn, extremely rare.
“What is your current rank then, Father?” Gu Ruoyun gently raised an
eyebrow and fixed her gaze on Grand Lord Hong Lian.
