Evil Emperor’s Wild Consort
Chapter 3: Shameless Man (3)
Her voice held heartbreaking pain as tears slid down from her eyes.
Seeming to have heard the woman’s desperate cry, the teenage boy finally moved. He opened his tired eyes, his clear pupils gazing straight at Xia Ruoyun, thin lips trembling lightly, with a weak voice: “Big sister…”
“Cough cough!” Xia Ruoyun coughed out two mouthfuls of fresh blood, her blood-soaked figure dazzling under the sun’s rays, “Let him go!”
“Let him go? Give us the Ancient Divine Pagoda and I’ll let him off!”
Lu Chen let the emotions on his face fade away, as he gazed coldly at Xia Ruoyun.
Even if women were important, they could never compare to power. With might at hand, wouldn’t he be able to have any woman he wanted?
Xia Ruoyun’s face turned even more pale. Her eyes moved towards the cold, cruel middle-aged man behind her, and she spoke one word at a time: “Yu’er is your son, the bloodline of your Xia family!”
“Haha!” Xia Ming laughed twice and callously said: “In the eyes of myself, Xia Ming, there is only Chuxue alone! A sickly, useless good-for-nothing like Xia Linyu isn’t qualified to be my son! Furthermore, it would be a worthy death for him if I can obtain the Ancient Divine Pagoda when he dies!”
Xia Ruoyun’s body trembled once more, as she slowly closed her eyes. She only opened them after a long while, a gentle gaze alighted on the teenage boy’s wounded and scarred body.
“Yu’er, are you afraid?”
Xia Linyu stubbornly shook his head: “I’m not afraid! Big sister, don’t give them the Ancient Divine Pagoda, otherwise, mother and grandfather would have died in vain… I believe that, one day, big sister will avenge my death…”
Lu Chen stomped on Xia Linyu’s chest, causing him to spit out a mouthful of fresh blood, his face turning even paler.
“Men!” Lu Chen raised his brows and without any expression: “Dig out Xia Linyu’s heart, tear his limbs off while he’s alive!”
The man’s cold voice rang like a hammer, as it knocked fiercely on Xia Ruoyun’s heart. She roared, heartbroken and angry: “Lu Chen, you bastard, I shouldn’t have entrusted Yu-er to you to protect. I’m the one who got my own precious little brother killed!”
Two men pressed Xia Linyu to the floor, as an icy sword slashed at his limbs; fresh blood splashed out, dying her pupils red…
Xia Ruoyun shouted hoarsely, with bloodshot eyes: “Let Yu’er go, if you do, I’ll…”
The faint voice was feeble, but in this quiet valley, it clearly fell on Xia Ruoyun’s ears.
“Don’t… give them… the Ancient Divine Pagoda. Only with the Ancient Divine Pagoda, can you… avenge mother, otherwise… otherwise I would rather die.”
The sword fiercely stabbed through Xia Linyu’s chest and his last words lost within his throat…
Xia Linyu laid in the pool of blood, eyes open as if wanting to say something.
At this moment, he felt his life disappearing, but his gaze full of attachment and dismay.
He can finally meet mother again, but what about big sister? He was the last of her family. If he died, how sorrowful and lonely would she feel?
Xia Ruoyun spit out a mouthful of her heart’s blood, stumbling as she ran towards Xia Linyu.
“Yu’er, it is all my fault. I trusted others and caused your death!”
“Grandpa is dead, mother is dead, even grandfather’s family has also died, you were the only one by my side…”
“Yu’er, if there’s an afterlife… I’ll give you a lifetime of peace. I’ll never let anyone hurt you again!”
