Felt As Though His Eyes Lurking At Her Like A Predator

Gu Xijiu quickly looked at the sky and realized that it was still raining blood. Intuitively, she gripped her sword tightly in her hand.
“Lady, please do not panic. Although the laws must not be taken lightly, I was the one who made the laws. Certainly, there are ways that I can negotiate with you.”
“Hmm?” Gu Xijiu was perplexed, “How?”
Ye Ling looked at her smilingly and seductively. “If you manage to get a class-one spiritual crystal, I will make the decision to let all of you stay.”
Gu Xijiu was surprised by the offer. It was certainly achievable and rather simple. With a sigh, she agreed. “Okay!” She and Di Fuyi had found a class-one spiritual crystal before, but they had completely absorbed its power; otherwise, she could have satisfied his request immediately.
She looked up and saw Ye Ling’s intense eyes staring at her. Gu Xijiu felt as though his eyes were lurking at her like a predator. She looked him straight in the eye and said, “Governor, are you going to send us to hunt for the class-one spiritual crystal now?”
“Of course not,” Ye Ling gave her a warm smile. “You can wait until the rain stops. As long as you can get the crystal back within three days, it is fine. You and the gentleman here look like people of great talents. I am a man who appreciates the talents of others.”
He flicked his finger to summon his men. “Clear out the residential area around the south and let these people stay there. After all that they have been through, they must be exhausted.”
“Yes, Governor!” His men attended to his order quickly.
Gu Xijiu was certainly not expecting for him to grant them a chance of survival. Perhaps, the man really did appreciate talents very much. In fact, the man was found to be less annoying than she thought he would be, so she thanked the governor for his kindness.
Ye Ling gave her another gentle look in the eye and said lovingly, “You are welcome, Miss Gu. Should you require my help, you can look for me at Fang He Cottage.” He turned and stepped onto the ladies’ bodies to return to where the ship docked. “Summon the ship,” he said lazily.
The ship that had been hanging around in the air approached him slowly. Ye Ling took out an umbrella and spun the handle around with his palm. The umbrella started spinning and carried him up to the ship that was floating in the air.
He had a great body, so many of his actions were found to be very extraordinary to the ordinary people. They would cheer for him no matter what he did. Usually, the ladies could hardly keep their eyes off him.
After he landed, he took a seat at the front and looked at the people from above. Quietly, he was trying to enjoy the ladies’ attention. To his dismay, the ladies were not attracted to him this time. They were all looking at the man in purple robes standing next to Gu Xijiu.
Ye Ling then took a look at his own robes that were decorated with many complex patterns. Silver threads were used to embroider the smooth patterns of a wave. On top of the wavy patterns, there was another piece of embroidery depicting the lively shape of a dragon. It was obviously of the finest quality. He chose the best embroidery to match with the best fabrics. Every time he put on his robes, he felt like a king who was overlooking his kingdom. He also thought that he was the only one who could carry the color purple. Any other man with the same purple robes looked just like a failed impersonation. Others were definitely not born with the same grace as his, so he never actually forbade the use of purple robes among the common people.
