Seated in the sedan chair was a person with a head full of inky black hair which fluttered in the wind. The man was leaning lazily against the back of the chair. He was dressed in peach blossom pink robes which did not look tacky on him at all. His beauty could be described as one of an evildoer that could enrapture an entire city.
He held a jade fan in one hand and his phoenix-like eyes were filled with smiles. The curl in his lips seemed to hold some sort of power and drew everyone to him.
His face was as beautiful as a peach blossom, his features were exceptionally magnificent!
Instantly, one thought appeared in the hearts of the crowd. The man before them was so beautiful it was almost evil; like the exceptionally breathtaking view of ten miles of peach blossoms in full bloom.
"Xiao Yun'er, long time no see. I've really missed you to death. Come, give this prince a hug."
Zuo Shangchen ignored the crowd's gloomy stares as he stretched out his hands towards Gu Ruoyun with a big smile on his face. His languid mannerism and flirtatious tone of voice caused an indignant jealousy amongst the women in the crowd. All of them glared hatefully at Gu Ruoyun, wishing that they could tear her into minced meat.
She already has one man following her around, they fumed. What right does she have to fight for the Young Master of the Dark Yin Palace's attention with us? Women like her who only know how to use their innate charm should be struck by lightning and split into two halves, they should not have an easy death!
"This mischief-maker, is there really a need to display such flirtatious behavior upon your appearance?"
Three black lines immediately appeared on Gu Ruoyun's face. She was completely at a loss for words towards the mischievous man whose arms were still opened wide.
"You're not allowed to go."
Suddenly, a hand reached out from beside her and pulled her into an embrace.
Gu Ruoyun's face was filled with surprise as she felt the warmth from that man's chest. She turned her head to look at the man's peerlessly beautiful face and blinked, "Xiao Ye, are you jealous?"
Furthermore, when had this guy arrived? She wondered. I don't recall telling him about my participation in today's Trials.
Qianbei Ye blushed and stared pitifully at Gu Ruoyun, "Xiao Yun, I don't like him. Let's ignore him, okay?"
Gu Ruoyun nodded, "Then we'll ignore this flirtatious fox."
Their conversation leaked into Zuo Shangchen's ears. As a result, his expression turned as black as the bottom of a cauldron.
Flirtatious? Fox? He fumed. Are they talking about me?
Actually, Gu Ruoyun can't really be blamed for saying this. After all, Zuo Shangchen's appearance, especially with those petals strewn all over the ground, has been far too flirtatious. It was simply a nauseating sight for her.
"Sigh. Xiao Yun'er, what a loss for me. I've thought of you day and night. I didn't think that you would have forgotten me so quickly, you're not even taking responsibility for me."
Zuo Shangchen's words were far too sensational and caused the crowd to explode into a cacophony of discussion.
Qing Ling's face was an especially ugly sight to behold. One should know that her admiration for Zuo Shangchen was not a one to two-day thing. She never expected the powerful Zuo Shangchen to turn out to be that sort of man and she had admired him greatly.
She simply could not understand what was so charming about this woman?
Feeling the stir of murderous intent from Qianbei Ye, Gu Ruoyun gently patted his arm to calm him before raising her head towards Zuo Shangchen, "I have no interests in homosexuals."
Zuo Shangchen's expression was greatly shaken but he quickly regained his composure and raised an eyebrow lazily, "Xiao Yun'er, this prince was only jesting. However, even if I have had relations with you, I won't make things easy for you in the Trials just because of that."
"Of course." Gu Ruoyun smiled, "I'll be going all out as well."
Soon, all the powerful organizations have arrived and the Trials were about to begin. But someone, it was unknown who that person was, had been sharp enough to notice the little lord standing next to Gu Ruoyun and cried out in alarm.
"A kid? How could a kid participate in this sort of competition? Is something wrong with the Dongfang Family's brains? They already had a foundation yet now they're allowing a child no more than ten years of age to join the competing team?"
