Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-997
The Nemesis Forest was vast and endless.
To this day, no one knows the full extent of the Nemesis Forest. However,
if Gu Ruoyun wants to head to the main city from Cloudy Wind City,
Nemesis Forest was clearly the fastest route! If she had followed any
other way, she would have to make a much longer journey and it might be
difficult for her to reach the main city within half a year’s time.
At this moment, under the night sky in Nemesis Forest, a group of people
were seated around a bonfire. The red flames glowed like a bright light
within the dark night.
Aside from Uncle Ying who was still suspicious of them, the rest of the
mercenaries had put aside their vigilance after interacting with them for
a short period of time and had asked Xia Linyu and his sister to drink
with them. However, Xia Linyu, who had never interact with bold and
uninhibited brutes before, only looked very awkward and wished that he
could reject their offer but was unsure of how to do it.
“Ignore them. Such is their morality and conduct. Even in battle, they
can’t be separated from their alcohol.”
Just as Xia Linyu was staring at Gu Ruoyun and silently pleading for
help, a sweet voice sounded from another direction.
He shivered. When he turned around, he came face-to-face with a pair of
large, vivid eyes.
It seems almost as if the young woman’s eyes could speak. They were
nimble and touching as a sweet smile hung on her face. She has two
dimples which also added even more lovely charm to her already
good-looking features. Even her voice sounds as though it has been dipped
in honey. Xia Linyu could not help but feel absolutely dazzled.
Still, he managed to quickly return to his senses and a clear and small
smile appeared on his face as he said, “Miss Gu.”
Gu Lan giggled, “We can be considered as peers now so you can call me
Lan’er just like the Leader does. Older Brother Yu, Older Sister Gu, what
business do you have in the main city? Coincidentally, I have an
acquaintance in the main city as well. If there’s anything that you need,
I can help you.”
Xia Linyu looked even more awkward now. He never expected Gu Lan to act
in such a friendly manner and found himself unsure of how to proceed.
“There’s no need.”
Gu Ruoyun shook her head and smiled serenely as she said, “We’re heading
to the main city for an important matter. There’s no need for your
assistance. However, if we are truly in need of aid, I’ll definitely ask
Initially, Gu Lan had felt a little bit disappointed. However, when she
heard the next part of Gu Ruoyun’s response, her eyes sparkled and curved
upwards like two crescents. It was a sweet and moving smile.
Just as she was about to say something more, a peculiar movement suddenly
appeared from somewhere up front as if thousands of soldiers on horseback
were charging towards the group.
Ye Ying quickly rose to his feet and his eyes darkened as he turned to
look towards the noise. Not too long after that, he was able to clearly
discern the scene in front of him and his expression changed.
Countless spiritual beasts were trampling through the dust. They were
like the waves of the ocean under the night sky, making it all even more
Uncle Ying took a deep breath as a stern look flashed across his face,
“We’ve been in the Nemesis Forest for nearly a month now and we’ve never
encountered any herds of spiritual beasts. Why is it that once these two
have joined our group, we’re faced with this situation? Leader, I’ve told
you before that these two do not harbor good intentions yet you have
refused to listen.”
He then turned towards Gu Ruoyun and Xia Linyu with a very ugly look on
his face. “Now,” he asked with a fierce look in his eyes, “What do you
two have to say for yourselves?”
