1553 The Underworlds Restricted Area 1

    "Let's go."

    Qianbei Ye did not seem to notice the hesitation in Gu Ruoyun's eyes as he held her gently and walked through the gate into the Underworld.

    Qing Ming, who was waiting respectfully for the couple at the gate, had been there for a very long time. His eyes lit up as he quickly stepped forward and spoke with reverence, "Young Master, Young Madam, you've returned?"

    Qianbei Ye nodded in satisfaction upon hearing how Qing Ming had addressed Gu Ruoyun. "Qing Ming, what's the status of the task that I've given you?"

    "Reporting to the Young Master, I've followed your orders and punished the Left Protector. I will ensure that she suffers a fate worse than death!"

    "That's good." A vicious light flashed in Qianbei Ye's eyes. "Next, I want you to make some preparations. Yun'er will be staying in the Underworld for the time being so make the necessary arrangements immediately. She will be sleeping in my room."

    "As you command!" Qing Ming replied with reverence. "Young Master, may I ask how many handmaidens should I allocate to serve the Young Madam?"

    Qianbei Ye looked at Qing Ming stoically. However, his peerless face was just as emotionless as ever.

    His face would only show a sense of tenderness when he looked at the woman by his side.

    "There's no need. She's my wife and I'll attend to her myself."

    Qing Ming's mouth fell open in shock as if he had just heard something unbelievable.

    Was he hearing things?

    The Young Master had said that he wants to attend to the Young Madam personally?

    The Young Master was a man. How could a man serve a woman? Besides, this was the first time Qing Ming had ever seen such a tender look on the Young Master's face. Looks like the usually cruel and heartless Young Master would only show some hint of humanity in front of the Young Madam...

    ...

    It was not long before news of Qianbei Ye's return started to circulate throughout the entire Underworld, especially since the Young Master has brought a woman back with him! This fact has certainly caused a few jaws to drop.

    After all, the Young Master had never shown any interest towards women since he had entered the Underworld. Not a single handmaiden had served him and it had been Qing Ming's duty to see to his food and living arrangments! Therefore, they could not help but wonder occasionally if this Young Master was homosexual.

    Otherwise, how could they explain why he would ignore such a peerless beauty like the Eldest Lady.

    However, they did not expect that the rumored homosexual Young Master would actually bring a woman home...

    Of course, in contrast to their shock, most of it was jealousy! Regardless of Qianbei Ye's abilities, just his position as the Young Master of this Underworld was enough to make hordes of women swarm over him.

    "Is this true? Has the Young Master returned?"

    A woman dressed in yellow robes slowly rose to her feet in a fragrant room as a light flashed in her eyes.

    "Reporting to the Lady," The protector of the Underworld who had given the report looked at Huang Ying before replying carefully, "There's also a young woman who had tagged along with the Young Master in his return. Besides, the Young Master has even arranged for that woman to sleep in his chambers. After the Young Master had made the arrangements, he had then headed the rear mountain to meet the ancestral elders."

    The ancestral elders were the old fellows who have been operating in the Underworld's shadow and the ones who hold true power in the Underworld.

    Huang Ying did not reply. After a long pause, she slowly spoke, "I understand, you may leave but before you do, bring me my dagger. I will pay that young lady a visit."

    "Yes, Eldest Lady."

    The Underworld protector took his leave upon receiving the order. Very soon, a servant arrived with a tray which contained a dagger and placed it in front of Huang Ying. Huang Ying quietly picked up the blade before leaving the room.

    ...

    Gu Ruoyun was sitting cross-legged in the bedchamber as she quietly stabilized her refined state cultivation.
