Evil Emperor’s Wild Consort
Chapter 5: Good-for-Nothing (2)
West Spirit Mainland, in Azure Dragon Country.
Within a remote backyard of the general’s mansion, a young woman crossed her legs. She held a stalk of straw in the corner of her mouth, as she sat slovenly on the bed.
“The West Spirit Mainland?”
While talking to herself, Xia Ruoyun’s lips curved up slightly.
“Looks like I’ve reincarnated from the East Peak Mainland to the West Spirit Mainland. I wonder if the heavens gave me a chance for rebirth because they couldn’t bear Xia Ming’s actions?”
There are countless mainlands in this world.
Even though the East Peak and West Spirit mainlands were right next to each other, the West Spirit mainland ranked at the bottom, as only people with a certain level of strength could step into the East Peak Mainland.
The previous Xia Ruoyun had come from the East Peak Mainland!
However, what she had not expected, was that this Gu Ruoyun was a complete and utter good-for-nothing compared to her previous level of talent! Even at the age of fifteen, she had not even reached the most basic third level of cultivation.
Even the servants in the general’s mansion had at least reached the fourth level or above.
As a result, this Gu Ruoyun had a tragic life.
Orphaned at an early age, she was a dispensable existence in everyone’s eyes. If not for the protection of her genius older brother, she would have been unable to take even a single step.
However, not long ago, her genius brother had been accepted as a disciple by a mysterious power, and was forced to leave Azure Dragon Country.
Who would have known that, just days after he had departed, the young master of Ling family would deliberately mock him in front of Gu Ruoyun, and that she would start a fight with him for the sake of her brother, only to get beaten half to death by the Ling family’s servants.
The funniest part was that her own grandfather, the great general of the this household, indiscriminately beat her to death.
Thinking of this, Gu Ruoyun’s lips formed a cold sneer: “Gu Ruoyun, since I’ve occupied your body, I will become you! Rest assured, I’ll take revenge for you, just take it as the compensation for taking your body.”
As soon as she said so, the door opened and a person stood at the doorway. When the person’s gaze met with Gu Ruoyun’s pair of deep black eyes, she was clearly taken aback.
“Gu Ruoyun, you’re not dead?”
This Gu Ruoyun, she was actually this lucky? She was still living after being beaten to that point by grandfather.
“Of course. Did you really want me dead?”
Gu Ruoyun’s thin lips curved up, smiling faintly at her.
“Hmph!” Gu Panpan snorted, “Since you didn’t die, then go to the guest hall, grandfather is waiting for you.”
After saying so, she turned her head and left.
Gu Ruoyun slightly narrowed her eyes. From going through the old Gu Ruoyun’s memories, she knew that this ever arrogant girl was Gu Panpan, her second uncle’s daughter, whose older brother Gu Xianglin was a genius second only to her own older brother Gu Shengxiao. Thus, to help Gu Xianglin, who was constantly overshadowed by Gu Shengxiao, vent his frustrations, she frequently bullied Gu Ruoyun when Gu Shengxiao was not at home.
To avoid adding to her brother’s worries, Gu Ruoyun had never told him.
In the guest hall.
Just as Gu Ruoyun walked in, she saw the old general Gu seated on the high seat, while an old man and a young man sat to his lower right. Without even needing to check her memories, the old man was clearly the head of the Ling family, Ling Yi, while the young man, was the culprit who had caused Gu Ruoyun to be beaten to her death, the Ling family’s young master.
“Gu Ruoyun, you’ve finally awakened!”
General Gu threw a piercing gaze at Gu Ruoyun and with a serious face, he said: “How dare you beat up the Ling family’s young master in the streets! Apologise to him right now!”
Since one of the highest-ranking imperial concubines sitting in the palace came from their family, the Ling family was not one that he could afford to offend. If it would appease the Ling family, what was the sacrifice of a good-for-nothing? What he did not expect was that his cowardly granddaughter would have courage of this magnitude!
Unfortunately, she was just a good-for-nothing.
If she had been a genius just like her brother, even the imperial concubine would not have dared to touch her.
TL note: The author reveals more about the cultivation levels later, but you can look at the glossary to find out how their cultivation system works! Gu Ruoyun is level 2, which is considered very weak in their world. Xia Ruoyun was previously a martial honour class.
So now Xia Ruoyun has reincarnated into Gu Ruoyun, the good-for-nothing daughter of the general…
