1807 Ancestor Takes Action, Explosion!
The two of them bowed.
“The ceremony is over!”
As the ceremonial officer’s clear voice spread through the hall, fireworks erupted on the many mountains outside Suming Peak!
Bright patterns bloomed in the sky. Even during the day, one could still see the flickering light.
36 Respected Elder Ming stroked his beard and sighed. “The Sky-Cloud Empire hasn’t been so lively in a long time…”
Now that His Highness has finally gotten what he wanted, I am relieved.
Rong Xiu held Chu Liuyue’s hand tightly, and the two of them walked side by side into the innermost part of the hall.
There was a distinguished bench. It was clearly reserved for His Grace and the princess consort.
The red train of her dress, as thin as gauze, streaked silently across the black jade floor.
As they walked, the tassels on the phoenix crown swayed gently.
The woman’s skin was smooth, and her eyebrows were like a painting. What was even rarer was that her entire body exuded an indescribable spiritual aura. Just by standing there, she had already surpassed the thousands of sceneries in this world.
Her thick and long eyelashes fluttered slightly. Her eyes moved like a gust of wind, gently stirring the thousands of stars in the night sky.
Rong Xiu looked at her with deep eyes.
At that moment, he knew all eyes were on her. In the past, he would definitely not like it. But today was different—this was his wedding with her.
From now on, she was his consort.
She was so radiant and magnificent.
She was his.
He finally held the most moving treasure in the world in his palm.
The two sat down. Only then did Rong Xiu reluctantly retract his gaze from her and look at the people in the hall.
After the ceremony, it was time for the banquet.
But before this banquet began, there was an extremely important process to go through—gifts from all families. After all, the Sky-Cloud Empire was a first-rate family in the God Residence Realm. It was famous and had a noble status.
Now that it was the wedding of the powerful His Grace, Rong Xiu, every family naturally had to prepare generous gifts to celebrate.
The richness of the congratulatory gifts was very important. On the one hand, this reflected the wealth and foundation of the person who gave the gift. On the other hand, it also showed that they were close to the Sky-Cloud Empire.
“Today is my wedding. I welcome everyone. If there’s any neglect, please forgive me.” As Rong Xiu spoke, he raised his glass in invitation.
Everyone raised their glasses.
The hall was very lively.
Sitting beside Rong Xiu, Chu Liuyue picked up the wine glass in her hand and realized that it had been replaced with clear tea.
Her lips pursed, and she took a small sip to hide the smile in her eyes. Then, she put down her glass.
Rong Xiu tilted his head. “Delicious?”
His gaze dropped to her moist, full lips, and his eyes suddenly darkened.
Chu Liuyue blinked and nodded.
It was rare for her to be so obedient and naive. It was like a cat putting away its sharp claws and turning into a soft ball, making people want to hug and tease it.
Rong Xiu rubbed his fingers gently on the wine glass and glanced at the bright and warm sunlight outside. It’s only noon…
He downed the rest of his wine. For the first time, time seemed to pass so slowly.
“Tianji Sect Leader has given you two 1,000-year-old Flying Frost Immortal Pearls!”
“The sect master of Purple Phoenix Sect has given you a pair of Night Sea Coral Screens!”
“The owner of Snow Breeze Pavilion has given you a green-colored Great Essence Pill!”
The ceremonial officer’s voice continued sounding.
Chu Liuyue raised her brows slightly. The Sky-Cloud Empire’s status in the God Residence Realm is indeed extremely high. Almost all the gifts from various families are rare treasures. Ordinary aristocratic families have probably never seen such treasures, let alone given them away. Only true aristocratic families can have such confidence and foundation.
Rong Xiu listened from the side with a faint smile and relaxed eyes.
Everyone watched from below and sighed again. It turns out that this Grim Reaper can actually smile like this, and all of this is clearly because of the woman beside him.
Time slowly trickled past.
There was a low murmur of voices in the hall.
“The people who presented the gifts earlier were all first-rate families in the God Residence Realm. It’s obvious that they’re here for the sake of His Grace, but why hasn’t anyone from Princess Consort’s side appeared to present the gifts yet?” someone asked curiously.
“You don’t know? The princess consort that His Grace married came from outside the God Residence Realm! For the sake of the wedding ceremony, he specially invited the princess consort’s father and friends. But with that background… what kind of good things can her family bring out?” Someone laughed mockingly. “After the families and sects in the God Residence Realm finish their gifts, it should be their turn, right? However, I think… there’s nothing to see!”
“Why not? I’m looking forward to what this consort’s family and friends will bring! After all, she has won the favor of His Grace, who insists on marrying her. If the gifts are all unpresentable, wouldn’t that scene be exciting? Haha!”
“Tsk tsk, you’re really sinister! I like it! Just thinking about that scene makes me feel so good! When the time comes, I’m afraid Rong Xiu won’t be able to maintain his expression anymore!”
Everyone laughed secretly.
In the past few years, Rong Xiu had been famous in the God Residence Realm.
Some people were envious and respectful, and naturally, some were jealous and resentful. There were also some who had wanted to marry into the Sky-Cloud Empire but were rejected by Rong Xiu.
Which aspect of the women in their family was not stronger than this lowly Shangguan Yue?
Although everyone present was chatting and laughing, many of them had their own plans. There were more than one or two people who wanted to watch a joke.
If this Princess Consort loses face today, it will be equivalent to losing His Grace—Rong Xiu’s face!
Although many people lowered their voices, Tongshen Palace was only so big, and most of the people present were top experts. Who could not hear them?
This was deliberately said.
On the one hand, many of the families present were also first-rate families, not much inferior to the Sky-Cloud Empire. On the other hand, they felt that they were telling the truth. If the truth was unpleasant, would they not let others say it?
36 Respected Elder Ming frowned and glanced at Rong Xiu, only to see that the latter’s expression was normal as if he didn’t care about these words.
His gaze shifted slightly, and he glanced at Chu Liuyue again. There was still a smile on this person’s face.
36 Respected Elder Ming sighed in his heart. I really can’t see through them…
At this moment, Shangguan Jing suddenly spoke. “Yue’er.”
The deep, rich voice immediately caught everyone’s attention.
The hall fell silent.
Chu Liuyue looked over. “Ancestor?”
Shangguan Jing smiled and said, “Yue’er, you and Rong Xiu have finally come to fruition today. I’m so happy! I’m used to being carefree alone and haven’t saved up much for you all these years, so I don’t have anything else to give you. Take this.”
As he spoke, he took a bronze Cosmic Ring from his hand.
Chu Liuyue’s smile bloomed like a flower. “Ancestor gave it to me, so it’s naturally the best!”
Shangguan Jing waved his hand and casually said, “It’s just six supreme Yuan instruments. What’s so good about them? In the future, I will personally forge a few more for you. At the very least, I have to make ten perfect ones!”
