Chapter 288 – My Big Wife Is Li…
How honorable is it for an Emperor to bestow a marriage?
It also happened to be Princess Lasting Peace, the most beautiful one out of all the Princesses.
She was also the one that Tang Zhanlong loved the most.
How high would one's status become?
Yet he said he was unwilling. Did shit enter Luo Tian's brains? This was something many people sought yet it would never happen even in their dreams.
He actually said the words I am unwilling.
Could it be that he doesn't understand the hidden meaning behind Tang Zhanlong's marriage bestowment?
Sea Cloud Sect was a huge and powerful existence. Wanting Luo Tian to die was a very simple matter for them since he had no background whatsoever. There's no way they would be afraid just because Tang Zhanlong spoke his words of warning. This was a world of martial cultivators where thousands upon thousands of them died for a variety of reasons.
The sudden death of a Luo Tian would be a very common occurrence.
Even if Tang Zhanlong tries to pursue this, Sea Cloud Sect could easily push the fault onto others.
If Luo Tian becomes Tang Zhanlong's son-in-law, then he would become a member of the imperial family. Sea Cloud Sect will have to seriously consider their actions with this kind of relationship involved. Since Luo Tian's status has undergone such a change, they would have to seriously consider the consequences of killing him.
With Tang Zhanlong's well-known character of being protective of his family, he would never let Luo Tian's death go so easily. He would definitely put the entire blame on Sea Cloud Sect and then everything would become a complicated mess.
The strong foundation of the Great Tang Dynasty isn't as simple as others!
Almost everyone understood the hidden intentions yet Luo Tian declined it.
Just like how Tang Zhanlong was saying: "Luo Tian was courting death!"
Tang Zhanlong became enraged.
He had favored Luo Tian so much and even gave his most beloved daughter to him. What kind of honor was this? This kid actually failed to appreciate his kindness and rejected the bestowment in front of so many people. Would a monarch of an empire have any face left after this?
The faces of the surrounding people turned gloomy.
"This kid must be sick in the head. How could he reject such a good thing?"
"Shit, if it were me in his shoes, I would immediately kneel down and call him father!"
"I bet this kid must have been scared witless by Daoist Huang Yun so his brain isn't functioning properly. How many people have dreamed of such a matter yet he rejected it? He's practically inviting death over."
Most of the people in the huge square couldn't figure out why Luo Tian would reject the offer.
They couldn't understand this no matter how hard they tried.
This was even beyond the imagination of Luo Tian defeating Nangong Hao.
Tears streamed down Tang Tang's face.
She felt extremely wronged when she looked over at Luo Tian.
She was a respectable and cultured girl with the identity of a Princess. In front of so many people, she actually professed her fondness to another man and asked her father to bestow a marriage. This was already considered throwing her face away yet she was even rejected outright.
This made her extremely sad and heartbroken.
Tears kept streaming down uncontrollably.
Qin Yue'er then softly said: "Luo Tian, what are you thinking about? Hurry up and agree to it. Tang Tang is crying her eyes out in pain. If you dare to betray her, I will definitely not spare you."
Luo Tian was neither haughty nor humble as he calmly said: "Your Majesty, please listen to my explanation."
"I would really like to see what kind of great and reasonable explanation you can give me!"
"If you aren't able to give me a reason that satisfies me, I will put you to death right here, right now! Humph!" Tang Zhanlong was angrily shouting as a father. Seeing how wronged his own daughter was, his heart was feeling irritated beyond words.
Luo Tian continued: "I have a wife already."
"Have a wife…?"
For a brief moment…
An uproar was heard in the area. His age was rather young yet he already had a wife?"
Qin Yue'er started frowning.
Tang Zhanlong looked at Qin Yue'er and said: "Is it her?"
Qin Yue'er also thought Luo Tian was talking about her but she wasn't a bit happy about it. She then softly said: "Luo Tian, what are you talking about? Don't worry about me and deal with the Princess first. Whether I have any status or not isn't an issue."
Luo Tian faintly smiled and said: "It's not like that, but you can also say it's kind of involved."
"Stop making up riddles in front of this daddy! Explain everything clearly! If you don't make everything clear today, you can forget about walking out of this imperial city!" The aura on Tang Zhanlong's body was just as fierce as before.
Luo Tian took a deep breath before looking off into the sky. His eyes contained a trace of longing before his mouth formed a faint smile. He then said: "I already have a wife, and her name is Li Xue'er…"
Without waiting for him to finish…
Tang Zhanlong's expression became stunned as he interrupted: "Li Xue'er – there are many women in this world with that name. You can't be speaking of Purple Soul Temple Violet Organization's young phoenix Li Xue'er, right?"
Luo Tian didn't try to hide things anymore.
"Damn kid, you trying to lie to me?!"
"Li Xue'er is already engaged to Shattered Sky City's Murong Wanjian! Everyone in the world knows about this yet you want to lie to me?" shouted Tang Zhanlong.
This was an impossible matter.
How highly honorable is the identity of "Young Phoenix?"
Not to mention Luo Tian meeting Li Xue'er; even if they do know each other, there's no way that the supercilious young phoenix would be attracted to Luo Tian. In other words, this was simply impossible. Young Phoenix matched with a True Dragon; now this was the blessing for the human race.
"Big brother Luo Tian didn't lie to you."
"My family's young master and sister-in-law Li Xue'er really are engaged with each other."
Feng Lei and An Chunchun stepped up to speak.
Luo Tian smiled bitterly and said: "I don't know whether this is considered an engagement or not. When I was very young back then and we were still kids, she agreed to marry me and I agreed to marry her. After all these years, she has treated this as for real and so have I."
The entire world knows the young phoenix was matched with a true dragon.
So who would bother with a little country bumpkin?
Tang Zhanlong was silent for a while as he knew Luo Tian wouldn't dare to lie to him.
A moment later…
Tang Zhanlong's heart was getting agitated with excitement. After all these years, there wasn't anything that has made him this excited like right now. "Hahaha… it looks like this is going to be a lot of fun now."
True Dragon? Young Phoenix?
Now a monkey wrench has been thrown into the mix.
With Luo Tian's personality – his wild arrogance and his refusal to yield to any opponent; this guy is practically the devil incarnate!
True Dragon, Young Phoenix, and now a Devil Incarnate. This is going to be a lot of fun!
Without waiting for Tang Zhanlong to speak…
Luo Tian then said: "Apart from Li Xue'er, there's also her."
Luo Tian looked over at Qin Yue'er.
Qin Yue'er's heart almost shattered from being so moved by Luo Tian. This guy is practically… "I'm going to give him a bunch of children!"
Luo Tian continued: "Tang Tang is a good girl with a noble identity and extremely beautiful looks. I have grown up wandering all over where life-threatening dangers may descend at any given moment. If she follows me, I'm afraid she will live a life of fear. She is a Princess – she shouldn't be following me to live a wanderer's life and should be choosing a lifestyle more suited for her."
These were the genuine thoughts inside Luo Tian's heart.
Something he had to get off his chest.
Luo Tian didn't consider himself a good person. When he saw a beautiful woman, he would give them a few extra glances and can't help wanting to possess them. But there were things he had to lay out on the table because this was one of his principles he adhered to.
"I am willing!"
"I am willing to be the little one."
"I am willing to follow you in wandering the world, and following your way of life is actually my ideal." Tang Tang cried her eyes out as she was moved by Luo Tian's words.
Tang Zhanlong smiled bitterly while shaking his head. "It's hard to keep a grown daughter at home."
An Chunchun giggled and leaped into Luo Tian's embrace. She then whispered: "Big brother Luo Tian, I am also willing."
