Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-909
Zuo Shangchen was shaken before he quickly regained his composure. His
forlorn eyes then stared at Gu Ruoyun pitifully, “Xiao Yun’er, we’ve
known each other for such a long time yet you don’t know what kind of
person I am? This is truly heartbreaking.”
“I’m asking about your identity.” Gu Ruoyun replied with a half smile,
“You are the Fourth Prince of Vermillion Bird Country from the West
Spirit Mainland and also the Young Master of the Dark Yin Palace, and…
There’s another Dark Yin Palace in the First City. How is that Dark Yin
Palace connected to you?”
“Xiao Yun’er, you’re overthinking things.” Zuo Shangchen placed his hands
behind his head as he directed his peach blossom gaze indolently towards
Gu Ruoyun and spoke with a smile on the corner of his lips, “The Dark Yin
Palace I belong to is on the West Spirit Mainland. The Dark Yin Palace in
the First City has nothing to do with me at all. We’ve known each other
for such a long time, how could I find the ability to expand the Dark Yin
Palace all the way to the First City?”
“Oh, really?” Gu Ruoyun’s cool gaze seemed to see through everything
clearly. She stared pointedly at Zuo Shangchen’s lazy yet evil face, “If
I remember correctly, you are only the Young Master of the Dark Yin
Palace. There is still the Palace Lord whose whereabouts are unknown and
no one in this world has ever seen him before. I wonder where this Palace
Lord could be.”
Zuo Shangchen could not help but admire Gu Ruoyun’s intellect to be able
to piece the connection between the two Dark Yin Palaces 1 together so
However, he would never admit to that connection!
This was an order from my Master! Master had once warned me to not let
Xiao Yun’er find out about anything before the time is right so I have to
hide it from her. After all, I don’t dare go against Master’s orders.
“My Master has already passed away.”
Zuo Shangchen shrugged and smiled indolently as if there was nothing
wrong with cursing his own Master.
Gu Ruoyun narrowed her eyes when she heard this and observed Zuo
Shangchen with utmost seriousness.
Honestly, when the Grand Lord Hong Lian had given the First City’s
division chart to her, she was already suspicious on whether the Dark Yin
Palace in the First City was in any way related to Zuo Shangchen. Now
that she has bumped into Zuo Shangchen in the Medicine Sect, her
suspicions have increased.
The Dark Yin Palace was one of the more powerful forces in the First
City. Even though it could not be compared to some of the best, it was
definitely not at the same level as the Lin family. In other words, a
hundred Lin families could never match up to even one Dark Yin Palace.
“Zuo Shangchen, you may deny your relationship now but one day, I’ll find
out who you really are.”
Gu Ruoyun loosened the knot between her brows and smiled mildly.
Besides, unless my guess is wrong, Zuo Shangchen’s current level in power
seems to have increased considerably…
At the elders’ chamber.
Huang Feifei hurriedly rushed out to greet Elder Huang the moment she saw
that he had returned. Her face was flushed with anticipation, “Father,
how did it go? What did he say? Has he agreed to marry me? Also, what is
his level of power?”
When Elder Huang saw the anticipation on his daughter’s face, he shook
his head and sighed helplessly.
“He has refused.”
His words were like a stroke of lightning that pushed Huang Feifei
backward. Her face turned as white as a sheet as her eyes stared
mournfully at Elder Huang.
“Father, did you say that he has refused? Does he not like me 2 ?”
Huang Feifei’s expression created a pang in Elder Huang’s heart and he
hurried soothed her, “No, no, it’s not like that. It’s just that he feels
that he is too lowly and is not suitable for you. That was why he had
rejected the offer.”
Hearing this, Huang Feifei’s expression changed for the better. However,
she still persisted, “Father, is this really true? The reason for his
rejection was not that he doesn’t like me but he thinks that he’s not
worthy of me?”
Elder Huang nodded.
He has already decided that for the sake of his daughter, he must obtain
the Sect Master’s position. By then, that man will cry and beg for the
opportunity to marry his daughter.
