Chapter 909: Inviting Humiliation (5)
Zuo Shangchen was shaken before he quickly regained his composure. His forlorn eyes then stared at Gu Ruoyun pitifully, "Xiao Yun'er, we've known each other for such a long time yet you don't know what kind of person I am? This is truly heartbreaking."
"I'm asking about your identity." Gu Ruoyun replied with a half smile, "You are the Fourth Prince of Vermillion Bird Country from the West Spirit Mainland and also the Young Master of the Dark Yin Palace, and... There's another Dark Yin Palace in the First City. How is that Dark Yin Palace connected to you?"
"Xiao Yun'er, you're overthinking things." Zuo Shangchen placed his hands behind his head as he directed his peach blossom gaze indolently towards Gu Ruoyun and spoke with a smile on the corner of his lips, "The Dark Yin Palace I belong to is on the West Spirit Mainland. The Dark Yin Palace in the First City has nothing to do with me at all. We've known each other for such a long time, how could I find the ability to expand the Dark Yin Palace all the way to the First City?"
"Oh, really?" Gu Ruoyun's cool gaze seemed to see through everything clearly. She stared pointedly at Zuo Shangchen's lazy yet evil face, "If I remember correctly, you are only the Young Master of the Dark Yin Palace. There is still the Palace Lord whose whereabouts are unknown and no one in this world has ever seen him before. I wonder where this Palace Lord could be."
Zuo Shangchen could not help but admire Gu Ruoyun's intellect to be able to piece the connection between the two Dark Yin Palaces 1 together so quickly.
However, he would never admit to that connection!
This was an order from my Master! Master had once warned me to not let Xiao Yun'er find out about anything before the time is right so I have to hide it from her. After all, I don't dare go against Master's orders.
"My Master has already passed away."
Zuo Shangchen shrugged and smiled indolently as if there was nothing wrong with cursing his own Master.
Gu Ruoyun narrowed her eyes when she heard this and observed Zuo Shangchen with utmost seriousness.
Honestly, when the Grand Lord Hong Lian had given the First City's division chart to her, she was already suspicious on whether the Dark Yin Palace in the First City was in any way related to Zuo Shangchen. Now that she has bumped into Zuo Shangchen in the Medicine Sect, her suspicions have increased.
The Dark Yin Palace was one of the more powerful forces in the First City. Even though it could not be compared to some of the best, it was definitely not at the same level as the Lin family. In other words, a hundred Lin families could never match up to even one Dark Yin Palace.
"Zuo Shangchen, you may deny your relationship now but one day, I'll find out who you really are."
Gu Ruoyun loosened the knot between her brows and smiled mildly.
Besides, unless my guess is wrong, Zuo Shangchen's current level in power seems to have increased considerably...
At the elders' chamber.
Huang Feifei hurriedly rushed out to greet Elder Huang the moment she saw that he had returned. Her face was flushed with anticipation, "Father, how did it go? What did he say? Has he agreed to marry me? Also, what is his level of power?"
When Elder Huang saw the anticipation on his daughter's face, he shook his head and sighed helplessly.
"He has refused."
His words were like a stroke of lightning that pushed Huang Feifei backward. Her face turned as white as a sheet as her eyes stared mournfully at Elder Huang.
"Father, did you say that he has refused? Does he not like me 2 ?"
Huang Feifei's expression created a pang in Elder Huang's heart and he hurried soothed her, "No, no, it's not like that. It's just that he feels that he is too lowly and is not suitable for you. That was why he had rejected the offer."
Hearing this, Huang Feifei's expression changed for the better. However, she still persisted, "Father, is this really true? The reason for his rejection was not that he doesn't like me but he thinks that he's not worthy of me?"
Elder Huang nodded.
He has already decided that for the sake of his daughter, he must obtain the Sect Master's position. By then, that man will cry and beg for the opportunity to marry his daughter.
