Chapter 2626: The Woman Was Absolutely Brilliant
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Starry Crescent Land had never been visited by the beings from outer space before. In fact, high up in the skies, there was a unique barrier shielding the land from any invasions by alien species. Her time-traveling experience from the future was a very rare case. Certainly, what happened with Long Fan and Long Siye was one of the rare exceptions as well.
The thought of being able to use wormholes to travel through space and time was certainly troubling to Gu Xijiu. With this revelation, she started thinking that all the so-called coincidences that she had experienced did not just happen without an apparent connection. There seemed to be someone behind the scenes, secretly controlling the sequence of every event like a puppeteer.
The Firmament Stone once told her that a Lord was not allowed to leave the Starry Crescent Land for more than six months. Otherwise, unfortunate events would unfold. This time around, the unfortunate event was the invasion of these aliens, which seemed to be some advanced species from another planet. Could the culprit behind all these plots be the man who was disguised as Zhu Duqing?
While Gu Xijiu was still deep in contemplation, the admiral still had his eyes locked on her. It was clear to him that she was baffled by what he had just shared. With that thought in mind, he started laughing out loud. “What is your name?” He suddenly asked in a rather seductive tone.
Gu Xijiu simply ignored him and continued to maneuver the warplane.
The admiral was quite impressed by her skills. “You came as a surprise to me. When people talked about you, I honestly thought that you were just a con with glorified stories.”
“What an idiot,” Gu Xijiu replied sarcastically.
“Is the Lord allowed to speak so maliciously?” He sounded surprised.
“I have a handful of spiteful remarks for you. Are you interested to hear more?”
“You are truly unbelievable.” The admiral sighed.
“That is because your brain’s capacity is too underdeveloped to see anything coming from me.”
The conversation had temporarily come to an abrupt end with that final nail in the coffin. The admiral remained silent for a while before he uttered another word.
“Where are you going?” He suddenly asked.
“I am looking for an open space so that we can have a proper fight.”
“How did you know I was coming for you?” The admiral was mildly astonished again.
Gu Xijiu merely frowned. “The only point of this conversation is so that you can track my position, right?”
The admiral was impressed. The woman was absolutely brilliant. For a moment, he looked at Gu Xijiu with a sense of admiration. “My Lord, you should know that it is hard for you to change the established order of this place alone. We have claimed the entire Starry Crescent Land as ours. You are not even a native here, so why should you risk your life for these irrelevant people? If you wish to keep your power and status in this world, I have a suggestion for you. It is one which allows you to have the best of both worlds.”
“What is it?”
“Be my woman, and I shall allow you to maintain control of this place.”
Smilingly, Gu Xijiu took out a mirror and put it right in front of the admiral. “Here, take a closer look at yourself in the mirror. Do you really think that you even worth my time?”
The admiral was completely speechless. Her rejection had shattered him more than her previous snide remarks. In fact, the admiral had always been proud of his manly charm. Many women had willingly surrendered themselves to him. Having women fight each other to get his attention was just a normal day for him. This rejection was the first time he was given the cold shoulder.
The well-traveled man had met countless women after years of wandering from planet to planet. Love affairs would certainly unfold wherever he stopped by, and he was able to charm the beautiful and the bright. He had captured the hearts of many different types of women. Some were shy and quiet. Some were bold and sexy. No matter their character, none of them had escaped his charm. Their hearts were completely surrendered to the man, and they would willingly do anything for him.
