Peerless Spoiled Consort: Evil Emperor, Very Arrogant - Chapter 4
The enigmatic man arched his brows, making a conscious effort to rein in his emotions. He locked eyes with her, and her deep, obsidian gaze felt like an icy stare that could freeze him in place. He couldn’t help but wish to disrupt her composure, to see her lose her cool. This girl was truly extraordinary; how could she remain so composed in such a dire situation?
“Don’t worry, I won’t let any harm come to you,” he reassured her gently.
“Take me home,” she retorted.
Considering the extent of her injuries, the most practical course of action for him was to transport her back to her own ‘home.’
He flashed a mischievous grin, leaning down to plant a kiss right between Wan’s eyebrows.
“As you wish,” he chuckled.
The little black cat, hidden deep within Wan, was horrified; its mistress had just been taken advantage of!
Li Wan felt her surroundings slowly fade into darkness. When she finally stirred, her long eyelashes fluttered open, and she found herself lying on a comfortable, warm bed in a lavishly decorated room.
A white-haired elderly man sat by her bedside, and upon noticing her awakening, his entire face lit up as he exclaimed, “Silly girl, you’ve finally awakened! You gave your Grandfather quite a scare!”
“Silly girl, it’s just a contractual spirit. So what if you haven’t awakened yours? Who do you think I am? I am the all-powerful Wu Wang! I’ll stand by your side no matter what. There’s nothing to fear!” Li Shen stated firmly.
Wan furrowed her brow as the body’s memories flooded her mind. The old man seated beside her bed was none other than Li Shen, the Grandfather of the Azure Dragon Kingdom’s Wu Wang.
What Li Shen referred to as a “contractual spirit” was a unique aspect of this world. When a baby is born into this world, contractual spirits form a bond with their soul. These spirits slumber within the soul and only awaken at the age of fourteen. A ring appears on the right hand’s ring finger, and each spirit takes on a different form, like an evolution of the soul. Some can condense into powerful weapons, while others can transform into formidable beasts.
A few days earlier, Li Wan had celebrated her fourteenth birthday, a time when her spiritual awakening should have occurred. However, throughout the entire day, nothing had transpired.
Consequently, she had been branded as a worthless individual.
In a world where one’s future depended on the strength of their contractual spirits, those without them were deemed worthless.
Li Wan couldn’t accept this and had never faced such a profound setback in her life. She had actually been missing for a full two days! Li Shen was deeply concerned, suspecting that his proud granddaughter couldn’t cope with this devastating blow and might have considered suicide.
Li Wan remained silent.
Suicide? Not a chance.
Having inherited all the memories of this body, Wan knew better than anyone that it couldn’t have been suicide. The reason she left Wu Palace was simply that three days ago, the Third Prince had arranged to meet her.
The previous Li Wan, burdened by her lack of a contractual spirit, had readily agreed to meet her beloved Third Prince. She longed for comfort from her cherished prince.
However, upon arriving at the designated location, instead of her handsome prince, she was met by a mysterious masked man dressed in black.
