Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-988
After all, if it had not been for the Dragon Blood Fruit’s existence, she
would have left them to their own devices.
“Regardless, I’d still like to thank you. To celebrate the Snow Jade
Bandits’ destruction, I’ve decided to hold a banquet tonight. I wonder if
you would be interested to join us, Miss?”
Gu Ruoyun stroked her chin. Under normal circumstances, she certainly
would not be interested at all.
However, if the Dragon Blood Fruit was here, that would be a completely
Gu Ruoyun smiled and nodded. Suddenly, her gaze shifted as she asked, “By
the way, I had overheard the Snow Jade Bandits talking about the Dragon
Blood Fruit. They had actually come here for the sake of obtaining it.
May I ask if this Dragon Blood Fruit…”
“Miss, you know of the Dragon Blood Fruit as well?” Wen Yan smiled as he
replied gently, “Actually, this Dragon Blood Fruit isn’t really of much
use to the Snow Jade Bandits. They were only looking for an excuse to
pick a fight with the Cloudy Wind City. However, this Dragon Blood Fruit
is of great use to me! An elder in my family is greatly ill and needs
this Dragon Blood Fruit as a cure. Hence, I could not give this up to the
Snow Jade Bandits no matter what!”
Gu Ruoyun simply nodded and did not say much. No one could tell what she
“Ah right, Miss, it’s getting late now. If you have nowhere to stay,
perhaps you could come with me to the governor’s palace?” Wen Yan smiled
mildly. His smile has retained its usual gentleness.
Gu Ruoyun nodded, “Alright, then I’ll have to trouble you, Governor.”
“If you had not reached out and helped today, I would not have won so
easily. Therefore, I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do.” When he had said
his piece, Wen Yan’s gaze turned somber as he ordered, “Servant, escort
Miss Gu to the governor’s palace!”
“Yes, my Lord!”
The eyes of the governor’s palace’s guards lit up. After all, this woman
was a benefactor who had saved Cloudy Wind City. She even has a powerful
spiritual beast on hand. Such a great opportunity to network with her has
been presented to them, how could they let it go?
Hence, within a short amount of time, the guards of the governor’s palace
have become extremely friendly as they quickly escorted Gu Ruoyun to the
When the crowd had dispersed, a figure appeared next to Wen Yan.
It was a delicate-looking woman. Her black hair cascaded down like a
waterfall and she had handsome brows and a snub nose. Her lips were a
natural vermillion shade. She certainly looks like a well-brought-up
daughter from a noble family.
“Master, I can tell that this woman seems to have an interest in the
Dragon Blood Fruit.”
The woman’s voice was pleasant to the ears and was as clear and moving
like a black-naped oriole. To hear her speak was a sort of enjoyment.
As she stood by Wen Yan’s side, the both of them looked absolutely
Sadly, no one was there to admire this picture perfect scene.
“The Dragon Blood Fruit?”
Wen Yan shuddered as he laughed bitterly, “She saved the Cloudy Wind
City. I can give her whatever she wants but this Dragon Blood Fruit!
After all, the Dragon Blood Fruit is connected to maternal grandfather’s
name! For my maternal grandfather’s sake, I’ve made painstaking efforts
to obtain this Dragon Blood Fruit. I will never let anyone else have it
so I had no choice but to utilize other ways to thank her.”
The woman smiled mildly. It was a sweet-tempered and dignified smile.
“Ah, that’s right. Tian Qi, it looks like maternal grandfather will come
for a visit tonight.” Wen Yan smiled before he continued, “When that time
comes, I will refer this woman to him. I can estimate that this woman’s
future will be limitless in the days to come. Since maternal grandfather
treasures geniuses so much, they will definitely find a kindred spirit in
