Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-990
Wen Yan was felt dazed and his astonished gaze fell upon Gu Ruoyun.
If I’m hearing this right, maternal grandfather is implying that this
lady has the ability to refine pills? It looks like there’s more than
meets the eye.
The delicate youth who had followed closely behind the old man also
stared at Gu Ruoyun with astonishment. A curious light then flashed
through his delicate and pretty eyes.
The old man suddenly burst into bright and clear laughter. He stared
admiringly at Gu Ruoyun as he said, “This is honestly a case of the youth
playing the hero! I’ve never admired youngsters, even those who are
considered as geniuses in the Northern Block Territory. In my eyes,
they’re not even worth mentioning! You, on the other hand, are someone
that I admire the most in my life! This grandson of mine is pretty
talented as well but, unfortunately, you have far surpassed him.”
The old man had not held back on his praises. He had even belittled his
grandson by a large margin.
Hearing this, Gu Ruoyun automatically glanced at the delicate youth.
However, she then turned away after taking one look at him.
Nevertheless, that one look was enough to cause the youth to turn very
red in the face. He lowered his head in embarrassment and no longer dared
to take another look at Gu Ruoyun.
This lady is indeed very beautiful. I’ve never seen anyone with such
exquisite features. Most importantly, based on what grandfather had just
said, it seems that she’s very powerful as well.
After all, this was the first time I’ve ever seen grandfather use such
glowing praises for any genius.
“You flatter me.”
Gu Ruoyun joined her fists. The light in her eyes glimmered as she said,
“I’ve heard the governor mention that he has an elder who is plagued by
an ailment and needs the Dragon Blood Fruit as a cure. May I ask if you
are the elder he had mentioned?”
“Haha! Actually, it’s not that big of a problem. I had once sustained an
injury which caused me to be unable to increase my powers after that. You
should understand as well that as long as a human doesn’t become a god,
their life will have certain limits. He’s just worried that I’m nearing
my limit so he had made painstaking efforts to obtain a Dragon Blood
Fruit. I, however, am more accepting of this matter. I only need to wait
until my grandchild has grown to his peak before I can leave peacefully.”
The old man waved his hand as he explained the situation with a smile.
Based on his expression, one could tell that he was really not too
bothered by that matter.
However, he still felt rather moved by the filial piety of his younger
“The Dragon Blood Fruit does indeed have rather powerful medicinal
properties. You can chance it but it may not work, so…” Gu Ruoyun’s
eyes darted back and forth, “May I try?”
If she could use this method to obtain the Dragon Blood Fruit, she would
not need to utilize other methods to steal it!
After all, be it Wen Yan or this easy-going old man, she felt a great
fondness for them both. Obviously, she does not wish to snatch the herb
from their hands! However, Xia Linyu was still of utmost importance in
her heart. She does not mind playing the villain if there was no other
choice she could make.
Still, that would only be her last resort!
At this point, she clearly has other options!
However, unbeknownst to Gu Ruoyun, this old man was not as easy-going as
she believes him to be. The reason why he had not put on any airs in
front of Gu Ruoyun was entirely due to her talent and abilities! If she
had been anyone else, she would have seen an entirely different behavior
from the old man.
“Miss Gu, do you truly have another way?”
Wen Yan’s eyes lit up and a sense of hope appeared on his warm features.
Prior to this, he might not have believed in Gu Ruoyun’s words.
However, once he had found out that this woman was able to refine pills,
the flames of hope were ignited within his heart once again.
