Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
“Thank you for your offer. Unfortunately, I already have a partner by my side, so I can’t accept your good intention.”
Ye Ling disdained. “You guys are still unmarried. Even if you cancel the marriage arrangement, no one would say anything. In this chaotic world, a woman should marry a good husband so that she can live comfortably.”
“In my heart, he is the best candidate to be my husband.” Gu Xijiu interrupted him.
Ye Ling was stunned; he sighed. “Miss Gu, you will regret it!”
Gu Xijiu stood up. “I will never do anything that I will regret. If you don’t have any other matters to discuss, I will need to excuse myself.” She then turned to leave.
“I will give you three days to consider,” Ye Ling added before she left.
Gu Xijiu did not turn back as she left the room.
Ye Ling stood there, looking at her back slowly disappearing. He smirked as he whispered to himself. “You will come back, begging!”
His eyes narrowed, and he suddenly clapped his hands. “Come!”
A shadow seemed to come down from the ceiling; two people appeared in front of Ye Ling. They kneeled and asked, “Master, what is the order?”
The blood rain was still pouring heavily. Gu Xijiu was walking alone along the street. She was still considering what to do.
Ye Ling was indeed the servant that the clan leader had in the past. According to the old patriarch, his servant was only relatively good in terms of his talent and skill. Even if he practiced for more than 100 years, he might not be able to reach a level six spiritual power. However, he was now at level nine. What had he done to have such a breakthrough?
This person was indeed sinister but would be considered as a formidable person. Despite being a lousy leader to the many heroes and talented masters that came to this city to take refuge, many of them were willing to abide by his rules. But why? He should have something unique in his hand, and that was why people let him be the city owner. What was he holding?
A gust of wind passed by, and Gu Xijiu suddenly felt a chill. She hugged her arms and contemplated that living in this place was far worse than the original village! Although she now had some spiritual power, it was only level six or seven. It was nothing compared to the other masters have resided here.Di Fuyi, on the other hand, had his spiritual power restored to a maximum of level nine, which was the same level as the city’s owner. However, some so many masters served the city’s owner. Most of them were level seven or eight. Thus, if it was not necessary, Gu Xijiu did not want to cross the man. Especially under the circumstance where she did not know the background of the city’s owner. It would make things even worse if she had a face-to-face conflict with him.
After rejecting his offer so bluntly, she was concerned that this man may lash out his anger on the innocent villagers.Gu Xijiu had a headache thinking about the many possible outcomes; she massaged her eyebrows to relieve some of the pain. She had been using her brain a lot over the past few days as compared to six months ago.
God damn it! She did not want to care so much! If the city owner really did something unfavorable to the villagers, she would try to take the villagers out of the city to find a new home.According to what Zhao Fengxing had shared to her, there should be other cities that they could go to. All the owners of the various cities couldn’t be as cruel and perverted as Ye Ling, right?
Unfortunately, it seemed that the nearest city was about 1000 miles away. The interval between the blood rain was only ten days. It would certainly be challenging to carry 100 people for ten days unless she could find other temporary shelters to see out the blood rain. Would there be shelters along the way?
She kicked a stone to the side of the road, and suddenly, there was a hand on her shoulder. “Baby, what are you thinking about? Why are you so frustrated?”
Gu Xijiu suddenly turned back and saw Di Fuyi standing behind her; he was smiling at her.
