Evil Emperor’s Wild Consort
Chapter 28: The Cunning Ling Family Meets Danger (3)
“Gu Ruoyun, did you do it on purpose? Did you deliberately allow me to bully and suppress you previously? Then you challenged me so that you could reverse everything, by crushing me with your strength and winning? What kind of grudge or hatred do we have between us, that it was worth spending so many years painstakingly hiding yourself just to humiliate me?”
Obviously, Ling Xi was overthinking it. He thought that Gu Ruoyun had hidden her strength just to find a chance to humiliate him thoroughly.
Of course. Gu Ruoyun had always been lazy to explain herself to insignificant people, so her silence seemed like agreement to Ling Xi.
“Ahhhhhhh! Gu Ruoyun, I want to kill you!”
Ling Xi roared angrily and climbed up from the ground. He raised his arms– at that moment, a golden rune appeared in his hands, exuding a faint light, which set off the grim expression on his face.
“This is the Ling family’s only rune… The Ling family spent a lot of money to buy this from an expert for the sake of transporting my grandfather to me if I met with any danger. So, Gu Ruoyun, this time, you’re dead!”
As his words fell, Ling Xi ripped the rune in half…
A golden light flashed, immediately, Ling Yi appeared out of nowhere in front of everyone.
Seeing his grandfather appear, Ling Xi sighed in relief, before hurriedly complaining. “Grandfather, quickly save your grandson! If I hadn’t brought along the teleportation rune that you gave me, then I probably wouldn’t have lived to see grandfather ever again…”
“Oh?” Ling Yi’s expression sunk bit by bit and darkened. He asked: “Who is so bold as to dare to harm the blood of my Ling family?”
Whoosh whoosh whoosh!
In that moment, everyone’s gazes turned towards Gu Ruoyun. Following their eyes, Ling Yi’s eyes found the girl who had not moved from start to end.
The Gu family’s girl?
He frowned: “Xi-er, this Gu family’s girl is only at Qi level 3, don’t tell me that you can’t even beat her?”
“It’s not like that, grandfather, the Gu family concealed her strength. With one strike, she defeated all of us here. Her strength is definitely not just Qi level 3, it is probably at level 6 or 7, and,” Ling Xi hesitated, before sneering, “She wants to kill me. Not only does she have a grudge against me, she even wants to end our Ling family’s bloodline. Grandfather, you definitely can’t let such a crafty and vicious person live!”
Wild anger burst out from Ling Yi’s body and his eyes watched Gu Ruoyun coldly: “Girl, having such a vicious heart at such a young age, leaving you alive would only end up hurting others. For the sake of saving the innocent… this old man can only kill you now to avoid disaster later on!”
The overcast aura was not only limited to his surroundings. The people around him started to feel that the air had become thinner and that there was an external pressure pushing on them.
Gu Ruoyun’s heart sank.
With her current strength, there was no way she could contend with Ling Yi. The only choice she had left was to escape!
Thinking of this, Gu Ruoyun laughed twice. A smile spread from the corners of her lips, carrying a trace of mockery.
“So this is the Ling family? When the little ones can’t win their battles, the elders come up? This has really been eye-opening for me! Ling Yi, I, Gu Ruoyun, will remember today’s debt! There’ll eventually be a day when I come to collect it from your Ling family!”
At this moment, the girl’s thin face showed off a wild, domineering aura. A regal air that even the current emperor didn’t have. In a trance, Ling Yi felt like he was seeing a long absent and familiar face on her…
That absolute genius of ten years ago, Gu Tian! That startlingly brilliant person, the mainland’s youngest martial emperor, the current Gu Ruoyun looked so much like him…
No way, he absolutely could not let this woman continue living, it was too dangerous!
