Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-99
It was at this moment that the gaze of the man in black landed on Gu
In that instant, all the blood in Gu Ruoyun’s body froze. It was like a
venomous snake was currently wrapped around her neck; she felt like she
was being choked, an extremely uncomfortable feeling to say the least.
“Gu Ruoyun!” Ling Yu’s gaze slowly began to cool, and she sneered
as she said, “This time, even if you hide behind Hundred Herb Hall, you
won’t be able to escape your punishment!”
This woman had to die!
Ferocity flashed across Ling Yu’s eyes as her sneer grew even more
Thinking up to here, she backed up a few steps and respectfully looked
towards the man in black behind her: “Mr. Sai, I’m leaving it to
A hoarse voice came out from the man in black; that venomous snake-like
gaze was locked onto Gu Ruoyun. Following that, an oppressive pressure
burst out from his body. Under that pressure, Gu Ruoyun’s body wobbled,
and her gaze turned to solid ice.
“Ling Yu.” Suddenly, Gu Ruoyun smiled; her expression was full of
some unknown meaning as she said, “I really admire you right now. You
managed to get a martial king here to back you up.”
Just as the sound of Gu Ruoyun’s words faded, the man in black’s gaze
narrowed. It was like his eyes became a pair of sharpened twin blades,
both trying to pierce that young girl’s body.
He had never expected that Gu Ruoyun would see through his strength.
For cultivators, it was only when you reached a certain rank that you
would be able to receive all the power behind that rank. Thus, unless Gu
Ruoyun had reached martial king, she should definitely not be able to
know what level his strength was at!
However, based on just his pressure, she had been able to see through his
rank. This was something he had never thought possible.
He had come to Azure Dragon Country in secret. If those people found out,
Thinking up to here, the killing intent exuded by the man in black
thickened, and the darkness in his eyes bled deep.
What the man in black didn’t know was that, although Gu Ruoyun’s
current strength was only at martial warrior, she had been a martial
honour in her previous life, and she had stayed at martial king for many
years. How would she be unable to understand this man’s true power?
“Martial king? Heavens, Ling Yu managed to find a martial king
“As far as I know, our Azure Dragon Country’s top expert Wuqing, the
assassin who comes and goes without a trace, is only a late stage martial
general. Now a martial king has appeared; is the world about to change?”
“It looks like the Ling family is going to rise back to power…”
Upon hearing everyone’s exclamations of surprise, an arrogant smile
surfaced on Ling Yu’s face.
Actually, she didn’t know where this man in black had come from. He had
been the one to find her, because he wanted to borrow the Ling family’s
name to kill Gu Ruoyun. However, that didn’t stop everyone from
thinking that this man before them was someone of the Ling family…
“Ling Yu, I’m rather curious how you found a martial king.” Gu
Ruoyun restrained the cold in her eyes. Instead, she spoke with a face
full of smiles.
Ling Yu was about to speak when the man in black beside her interrupted
in his hoarse voice: “Are you trying to stall for time?”
Hearing this, Gu Ruoyun’s smile grew even more pronounced.
That’s right! She was indeed trying to stall for more time.
She only had to wait for Elder Yu to finish breaking through, then he
would be able to fight off the man in front of her…
“Great, Gu Ruoyun, you’re actually trying to stall for time!” Ling
Yu reacted instantly. Raising her finger in accusation, she angrily said,
“Did you think someone would come to save you this time? Hundred Herb
Hall? Or that silver-haired man that you seduced somehow? I’m telling
you, all those people are nothing in front of a martial king expert. This
time, no one’s going to help you.”
