Chapter 19: The Stern Crown Prince (3)

As everyone knew, with the Luo family as the right general, and the Gu family as the left general, the two men had never gotten along. But the Luo family’s eldest miss, Luo Yin, somehow got along very well with the good-for-nothing Gu Ruoyun, even speaking out for her multiple times.

However, Luo Yin’s call successfully pulled everyone’s gazes towards Gu Ruoyun.

“The Gu family’s Gu Ruoyun? Isn’t that the nation-wide reputed good-for-nothing? Even if there’s a single person in Qinglong who doesn’t know of Gu Shengxiao, they’ll surely have heard of Gu Ruoyun, and I even heard that she boldly challenged the Ling family’s young master to a duel.”

“Tsk tsk, the Ling family’s young master is at least a Qi level 5, but I heard that this Gu Ruoyun seems to have been stuck at Qi level 2 for many years.”

“Although His Majesty has let all the officials bring their children to attend, but this good-for-nothing Gu Ruoyun isn’t qualified to come right?”

Hearing the mocking voices of the crowd, the old general’s face turned red, then white, hating that he could not use a single blow to slap this good-for-nothingGu Ruoyun to death, better that than to lose his face here!

Luo Yin was about to burst out in anger, but was held back gently by a hand.

She was slightly surprised for a moment, and turned her head towards the girl’s side profile, which was expressing indifference and silence.

“Don’t bother, let them say what they want, it’s not like I’ll lose anything.” Gu Ruoyun shook her head disapprovingly as she said.

For example, would an elephant care about what the ants are saying?

Gu Ruoyun was once that elephant.

“Crown Prince has arrived! Imperial Concubine has arrived!”

Just then, a thin voice sounded, instantly drawing everyone’s gazes.

Amidst the attention of the crowd, a bright yellow figure approached from afar, slowly coming into view…

It was a very handsome man, his facial features solemn and deep, with pupils that were like bottomless ink pools, shielding his thoughts from people.

And upon gazing at the girl by the man’s side, the crowd finally knew what phrases like ‘as pretty as a picture’ and ‘a beauty that causes the downfall of cities and nations’ were meant to express. Her face was extremely beautiful, yet she carried an abnormal pallor on her face, even rouge was unable to conceal her sickly posture.

But because she appeared together with the crown prince, people started to unconsciously guess her identity.

Especially since, even Imperial Concubine Ling with her high status, was walking behind the two! This made the people feel even more suspicious…

“Greetings to Crown Prince, Imperial Concubine.”

When everyone recovered their senses, they kneeled on the ground uniformly, respectfully greeting.

Therefore, the lone Gu Ruoyun standing in the midst of the crowd was abruptly exposed to the eyes of everyone…

“Gu Ruoyun, greet the crown prince and the imperial concubine, kneel down for me right now!” The old general furrowed his brows and said somewhat sullenly.

“Sorry,” Gu Ruoyun shrugged, “My knees grew some hemorrhoids so it’s not very convenient for me to kneel, if there’s a next time, I’ll definitely make it up to Crown Prince and Imperial Concubine.”

Hemorrhoids?

Old General Gu almost could not resist violently beating up Gu Ruoyun, knees growing hemorrhoids? He had already lived for over 60 years and it was the first time he heard someone could grow hemorrhoids on their knees, he was even **** learning new things here.

“Hehe,” Imperial Concubine Ling covered her smile, sharp gaze sweeping towards Gu Ruoyun, “So this is the Gu family’s Gu Ruoyun? Rumours really don’t live up to the real thing, I even heard that Gu Ruoyun wants to challenge my nephew, is that right?”

This matter was hardly a secret in Qinglong, but coming from the mouth of Concubine Ling, there was a different flavour to it.

“You’re right,” Gu Ruoyun lifted her head and looked at Concubine Ling, “I am the one who will defeat Ling Xi!”


TL Note: I’ve posted a glossary of the people and terms used in Evil Emperor’s Wild Consort since there are so many people to keep track of.

Katherine R has also created an amazing relationship diagram (direct link to download)!

    I have started a relationship diagram for this story to help keep track of all of the people. Some of the family relationships are not very clear yet. I do not read ahead just leave a “?” if I am not sure. I will update the diagram as each chapter is released.

    For example, we have not been told clearly Ling Yu’s position in her family. We only know that she calls Ling Yi grandfather. I have placed her as the “young masters” sister, but she could also be a cousin of his.

      Thank you timebun, I’m glad you like it. 🙂 I make these for most of the stories that I’m reading with a large amount of characters. I make them for myself, but it seems a waste to not share it. So I hope it helps others also. I have updated some of the names that I didn’t know from your glossary.

      I went ahead and changed my name to match what I use on Novel Updates (sorry for any confusion).

      By the way, your announcement post was not tagged with the title of of the story, so it is not showing up under the “Evil Emperor’s Wild Consort” part on the front page.
