1597 The Clan Leaders Request 1

    Qianbei Ye stared vigilantly at the bashful-looking Dragon Clan youth before them. He raised his brows and pulled Gu Ruoyun into his arms as a gloomy light flashed in his eyes.

    Gu Ruoyun did not comment on Qianbei Ye's actions. Instead, she smiled and said, "Please take us to see the Clan Leader."

    "Alright. Please come with me, Lady Gu."

    The young man looked even shyer and he could not stop glancing over at Gu Ruoyun incessantly from the corner of his eyes.

    As they walked to the Clan Leader's chamber, the young man described the Dragon Clan's culture and traditions to Gu Ruoyun. Gu Ruoyun did not pay much heed to the young man's friendliness and only listened absent-mindedly to him.

    "Oh, right." The Dragon Clan youth seemed to remember something and he paused before remarking shyly, "Our Dragon Clan is different from humans. In the Dragon Clan, military might reigns supreme and there's no such thing as regarding men as superior to women. The powerful female dragons in the Dragon Clan can marry more than one male dragons at a time. When it comes to reproduction, the Dragon Clan's reproduction power is very weak and powerful dragons' reproductive powers are even weaker. Hence, as long as you're in the Dragon Clan, a man can have more than one wife and a woman can have many husbands."

    This fellow's meaning was very clear in the way he continued to look at Gu Ruoyun with admiration.

    Hence, he failed to notice the gloomy expression on the crimson-robed man next to Gu Ruoyun which was so cold that it could freeze water.

    "Really?" Gu Ruoyun smiled calmly in reply. "This is the first time I've heard of such a thing. However, whether it's one husband with many wives or one wife with many husbands, this is not something which is acceptable to me."

    Though Gu Ruoyun may not have noticed the look of interest in the Dragon Clan youth's eyes at the beginning, she had immediately understood his meaning after hearing his words so she had abruptly made that remark.

    Besides, if she does not say anything, it was likely that this fellow would be torn limb from limb by the jealous next to her.

    Indeed, upon hearing Gu Ruoyun's words, Qianbei Ye's expression looked slightly better and was no longer as gloomy as before.

    The Dragon Clan youth was a little bit disappointed.

    Gu Ruoyun's meaning could not be more obvious to him. The feelings which have risen in him for the first time in so many years were extinguished by Gu Ruoyun at the budding stage...

    "Lady Gu, we've arrived at the Clan Leader's chamber and the Clan Leader is waiting for you inside. Young Master Lan Ge has also arrived a while ago."

    The Dragon Clan youth has regained his emotional balance. Even though Gu Ruoyun was not willing to accept him, it did not mar his admiration towards her.

    However, when Gu Ruoyun heard the way the Dragon Clan youth had addressed Lan Ge, she was shaken.

    Based on the situation, has the Dragon Clan accepted Lan Ge's existence?

    That was a good thing. There was no loss in having Lan Ge accompany her this time...

    Creak!

    The Dragon Clan youth pushed the door open and made a gesture at Gu Ruoyun and Qianbei Ye. He then stepped into the Clan Leader's chamber first and joined his fist respectfully, "Clan Leader, I've brought them here."

    "Good."

    The Clan Leader smiled, "You may take your leave. I have some matters to discuss with our guests who have traveled from afar."

    "Understood."

    The Dragon Clan youth left after receiving his orders.

    When he reached Gu Ruoyun's side, she looked knowingly at him. His eyes no longer carried his previously infatuated look, there was only a sense of admiration instead.

    The Clan Leader watched the Dragon Clan youth as he left as if deep in thought.
