Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-994
As soon as the man had finished speaking, the dainty, exquisite, sweet
little woman suddenly exclaimed, “Leader, come look, there are other
people in the Nemesis Forest!”
Everyone was shocked when they heard this. They then turned to look in
the direction that the young woman had pointed towards.
Soon, two figures stepped out from within the grassy field.
It was a man and a woman! They could tell that the woman was around
twenty years of age. Her green robes set off her features beautifully.
Her eyes were clear and cool like pools of water while her fine hair
fluttered gently against the night breeze.
The man in flax-colored robes was not a lecher. Regardless of how
beautiful a woman was, it was as transient as a fleeting cloud to him and
all that beauty will ultimately return to dust upon death. What had made
him unable to turn his gaze away was the terrifying aura emanating from
that woman’s body! He found it hard to believe that such a young woman
would carry the aura of a supreme ruler!
She was a powerful cultivator!
He frowned mildly at the thought of this and quickly turned away.
Tagging along next to the woman was a crippled young man. This young
man’s features were rather delicate as well. His skin was fair and white
and he looked rather shy. His eyes were not as clear and cool as the
woman’s but were fair and limpid like water.
If the woman was stunning to behold, this young man gave off a rather
comforting feeling instead.
The sweet and pretty woman noticed Xia Linyu’s empty, fluttering sleeve
and shook her head sympathetically. Her eyes filled with pity as she
commented, “How truly unfortunate for such a beautiful young man to be
handicapped. This world is truly unfair.”
The handsome man’s expression changed immediately and he hurriedly
stopped Gu Lan before she could finish speaking. He then exclaimed with a
stern face, “Don’t be disrespectful!”
Gu Lan returned to her senses and an embarrassed look appeared on her
sweet face. After all, that young man must feel very hurt deep down
because of his handicap. Yet, she had opened the wound right in front of
him. If his temper was a little quicker, he probably would have cast away
all sense of courtesy long ago.
Xia Linyu glanced at the apologetic Gu Lan as he waved his hand and
smiled, “I’m used to it now so I don’t mind.”
Gu Lan felt even more embarrassed when she saw how the youth was not
calculative over her mistake. She blushed furiously as she spoke, “My
apologies, it was not my intention to purposely pour more salt onto your
wound. Please accept my sincere apologies. Ah, that’s right, what are the
both of you doing in the Nemesis Forest?”
Xia Linyu smiled, “My sister and I were rushing through this place after
leaving the Cloudy Wind City and are on our way to the main city. The
only way to the main city is through the Nemesis Forest but we’ve been
here for nearly ten days now. We don’t have a map so we haven’t been able
to find our way out yet.”
Gu Lan’s eyes lit up, “Little sir, we are lost in the Nemesis Forest as
well. May I ask if you are heading in the same direction? There is
strength in numbers, perhaps we may find the way out a little sooner if
we stick together.”
Xia Linyu shook his head and turned towards Gu Ruoyun who was standing
next to him. He then asked slowly, “Sister, what do you think? I’ll
follow your decision.”
Gu Ruoyun fell silent for a moment before turning her gaze towards the
crowd before her.
“How long have all of you been trapped here? How much do you know of the
The silent and handsome man finally spoke up, “We’re being hunted by an
enemy so we had been forced to enter the Nemesis Forest. We’re not too
familiar with the place and I only know one way out of here.
Unfortunately, a very powerful spiritual beast lives at the end of that
road. We can’t hope to pass by unscathed.”
