Chapter 542: Ingrate

Everyone was shocked. The Purple Xiao Sword Sect has a very high status, so we thought the people who would come would be their elders. Why is it the sect master?

After some commotion, the burly middle-aged man walked over. It was Purple Xiao Sword Sect’s master, Song Luan!

Following this, all the other clans’ masters respectively appeared in front of the crowd.

Dragon Teeth Mountain’s Jian Shuye!

Sky-Soaring Clan’s Cheng Lifeng!

Chong Xu Cabinet’s Weichi Song!

All of the four biggest clans’ elites were actually gathered here.

Then, the masters of the clans ranked after the four biggest clans all appeared.

The yard had long quietened down.

The crowd silently looked at each other in private as they clearly didn’t expect such a prominent lineup today.

In no time, quite a few people became nervous. They are all the top warriors in rumors. No matter if it’s their identity, status, or individual capabilities, they are undoubtedly the most powerful existences in the entire Xi Ling, or even the entire Tianling Dynasty!

Normally, it was very rare to see even one of them. Nobody expected all of them to appear at the same time!

Chairs had already been prepared in the yard, with four chairs on both sides and two at the front.

The eight people sat down respectively, and they were a distance away from Chu Liuyue and the rest.

Chu Liuyue’s gaze landed on the two empty chairs. The people who can sit on those chairs…

“The Third Princess and her husband are here!” A sharp voice sounded!

Chu Liuyue’s heart skipped a beat, and she immediately looked up.

She saw a young woman wearing intricate and beautiful palace clothes walking over.

This woman had tied up her hair with a phoenix hairpin, and when she slowly walked over, her steps were light. She also had a faint and elegant smile on her face as her makeup made her look even more graceful.

When Chu Liuyue saw that very familiar face, her fingers trembled slightly. Shangguan Wan! More than a year has passed, and she looks like she didn’t really change. It’s as if whatever had happened didn’t leave any marks on her.

No, she has still changed. Chu Liuyue’s gaze swept past every inch of Shangguan Wan’s body.

The previous Shangguan Wan didn’t have a good life in the palace as her birth mother’s status was lowly, so she always had a flattering smile on her face. She was as weak as a cuscuta that swayed with the wind, without anything to depend on. Whoever saw her watery and deceitful eyes would pity her. Even if she did something wrong, it was very hard for people to scold her harshly. Chu Liuyue chuckled in her heart. This included the previous me.

At that time, I was born with a Tianjing Yuan meridian, and I had everything other people desired since I was young. I didn’t feel that way at the start, but Shangguan Wan always intentionally and ‘accidentally’ revealed envious expressions in front of me afterward, so I gradually thought that she was very pitiful. Not to mention that I regularly helped her, but I was also always very lenient toward her on many occasions. This extra and useless sympathy made me cut my own life short!

Upon seeing the current Shangguan Wan, I know she’s arrogant and prideful now. Her eyes have a sense of superiority, as well as harshness and ferociousness. She seems high and mighty; she doesn’t look like the previous her at all. After more than a year of being in control, she must be very happy and satisfied. Thus, she became the way she is now.

A young man followed half a step behind her—Jiang Yucheng!

He was wearing a watercolor-green cotton robe, with a piece of white jade around his waist to elongate his tall figure.

He didn’t have any other extra accessories on him, but one could see that he was elegant from head to toe with just one look at him. Whoever saw him would guess that his status was extraordinary.

Today, he wasn’t wearing his mask, and he revealed his original appearance.

His brows were sharp, and he was very handsome.

He did have his skills to be able to be called the most handsome man in Xi Ling. Compared to someone flirtatious like Jian Fengchi, Jiang Yucheng had a pair of emotional eyes.

When he looked straight into someone’s eyes, it very easily looked like his eyes were filled with love. Hence, other people mistook it as him being very gentle.

It was exactly this pair of eyes that lied to me and pushed me to my death. Looking at them again under the faint light, his eyes are very cold and vicious now. Back then, I was really possessed to have been pushed to that state by this duo. Chu Liuyue clenched her fists tightly, and her knuckles turned white.

She closed her eyes and took a deep breath. A demonically handsome face suddenly appeared in her mind.

Chu Liuyue’s heart faltered—it was Rong Xiu.

For some reason, the overwhelming anger and hatred in Chu Liuyue’s heart were gradually appeased. It was as if there was a pair of invisible hands gently comforting her.

Chu Liuyue opened her eyes, and reminiscence flashed past them. She then realized how much she missed Rong Xiu.

It’d be great if he was here… Chu Liuyue thought silently as she looked up and saw Jiang Yucheng. Now seeing this face again, he seems much more ordinary. His nose isn’t high enough, his eyes aren’t deep enough, and his lip shape isn’t good-looking enough. His bodily aura is also a few worlds apart from that of Rong Xiu.

The moment Chu Liuyue saw Rong Xiu, she knew that he was a rare beauty in this world. But with comparison, this feeling was even more intense.

Now, I truly understand what it means by ‘worlds apart.’ Thinking of this, Chu Liuyue suddenly felt much better. Not mentioning other things, but at least I won against Shangguan Wan in one thing—I have Rong Xiu!

Somewhere miles away.

The skies were blue, and the water slowly flowed as a gigantic island floated in midair.

The intense force joined together and became a white mist that spread around.

A tall and straight figure in white was walking along the water. Suddenly, he stopped and placed his hand on his heart.

“Your Highness, what’s the matter?” asked Yan Qing from behind.

Rong Xiu looked down, and his lashes trembled slightly before his thin lips curved up. “That little ingrate finally thought of me.”
