"Everyone, don't you think the bridesmaid is pretty?" Although the wedding ceremony had yet to begin, there was already a lot of noise.
Gu Qianqian seemed like a carefree person, yet deep down she was a kind-hearted woman that understood others. Her personality allowed her to be on good terms with a lot of people. The bridesmaids were all young, beautiful women that pleased the eye.
Xi Cunrong had a faint smile on her face. She was very close to Gu Qianqian, so it was only natural that she would be a bridesmaid at the ceremony.
A hint of disdain flashed across her eyes when she saw the noisy bunch of Rising Dragon Army elite martialists.
Gu Qianqian had mysteriously mentioned to the women still looking for a partner that a first-rate bachelor would attend the party. She really hoped that her sisters would grab this opportunity.
Xi Cunrong was considered a goddess by most of the guests, so she had attracted a bunch of rowdy catcalls. There was a number of people who urged her not to miss this chance.
There was a golden bachelor at the party after all!
Deep down, Xi Cunrong felt that this was beneath her, so she just stood aside with an apathetic expression. However, despite her furrowed eyebrows and scowling expression, she still had an extremely beautiful face and accentuated figure. Words like beautiful, pretty and gorgeous weren't enough to describe her.
No matter how hard she tried to keep a low profile, she still attracted the eyes of the guests. The gazes of the young men present were particularly disgusting. She actually felt as though she was naked whenever they got close to her.
Unfortunately, Xi Curong believed that these people were way below her standards.
Therefore, although she put on a smile, her pride was running rampant beneath the surface. These men were a thousand miles apart from her.
"Hop on, hop on. The bride has already come out. Get in the car!" a loud person in charge of the wedding ceremony urged everyone amidst the boisterous ruckus.
Ever since the apocalypse, the importance that people attached to wedding ceremonies had increased. Such an amazing time period in one's life just couldn't be ignored.
"Everyone stop right there!" a stern voice shouted.
As the groom, Zhu Yan was the protagonist of the day, so he had every right to be calling out excitedly to his friends and relatives.
This day was one of the most important days of his life.
Ever since he had experienced that critical incident in Zu Long's tomb, he had been looking forward to this warm, peaceful life. That day was an extremely important day, so he hoped that his wedding ceremony would go well.
He hadn't expected that someone would come and cause trouble just when he was about to escort his bride to the ceremony. Zhu Yan was rather put off by this.
The Rising Dragon Army elite martialists who were on good terms with Zhu Yan all glared angrily in the direction of the voice. If the people who had caused this disturbance didn't give a proper explanation, they wouldn't let this matter go easily.
Luo Yunyang was a little pissed. Zhu Yan, one of his few good friends, was getting married. How could anyone actually try to cause trouble at his wedding?
"Who are you people?" A tall bulky man stepped forward. He was Ma Yaozu, a good friend of Zhu Yan's and the Rising Dragon Army elite martialist in charge of the wedding ceremony.
The man who had spoken slapped Ma Yaozu across the face. His action was too sudden, so Ma Yaozu didn't have any time to react. One thing was certain, though. That man was definitely more agile than Ma Yaozu.
Although Ma Yaozu had been hit by others in the past, he had never felt so humiliated before.
"You f*cking dare hit me?" As he bellowed, Ma Yaozu stepped forward and threw a punch.
Although Luo Yunyang thought that his punch wasn't much, an ordinary person would have thought that Ma Yaozu could bend steel and split rocks with his fist. However, this was Zhu Yan's wedding ceremony, so Ma Yaozu had tried to be lenient.
As he threw this punch, the young man who had slapped Ma Yaozu said coldly, "A grain of rice like you can't hold a candle to me!"
While he spoke, the man raised his own fist to meet Ma Yaozu's punch.
When their fists collided, Ma Yaozu was pushed back seven steps in an instant. If someone had not supported him from behind in time, he would have crashed against the ground.
Among all of Zhu Yan's friends in attendance, Ma Yaozu could be considered one of the strongest fighters. When the others saw that he couldn't even take a punch from this troublemaker, they all froze for a second.
"Who are you people? Are you doing this to provoke the Rising Dragon Army?" a Rising Dragon Army Lieutenant Colonel asked as he took a step forward.
"The Rising Dragon Army? Ha ha ha! How impressive! Hearing that name makes me tremble all over!" The young man who had attacked first laughed impudently, his disdain clear on his face.
A flash of anger glinted in Luo Yunyang's eyes as a middle-aged man in black clothes said, "Stop fooling around, Old Nine!"
His gaze then landed on Gu Qianqian. "You are part of the Gu Family, Little 17. You can never change this. Now, follow me back to your family."
Then, the man raised his head and turned to glance at the Rising Dragon Army Lieutenant Colonel.
A rather intelligent-looking man standing behind the middle-aged man stepped forward quickly and said, "I am a high-ranking executive working at the consul's office. I'm here on behalf of the consul. I will be handling this matter for Mr. Gu. I suggest that everyone leaves this place immediately."
The consul's office held the highest authority in any city in the Da Alliance. Although the man wasn't able to command the Rising Dragon Army, a high-ranking executive wasn't someone an ordinary elite martialist could compare to.
Luo Yunyang's eyebrows arched up as he stared at the middle-aged man. Although the man's reputation wasn't prominent, he was actually a top-notch martial master.
It seemed like the Gu Family had some kind of influence.
Just as Luo Yunyang was about to make a move, the high-ranking executive added, "Make no mistake. The internal issues of an ancient martial family don't involve us."
The words 'ancient martial family' confused a lot of people. However, the lieutenant colonel's expression suddenly changed. He had obviously heard about this before.
"In terms of seniority, I should probably be calling you uncle. However, my father has been disowned by the Gu Family, so I don't think we are related anymore," Gu Qianqian suddenly said loudly in a determined voice. "We have long broken off all ties. Why have you come here to interfere with my life?"
"This is impudent! How dare you speak to me this way! If you weren't so young, I would have already slapped you!" the middle-aged man said coldly. "You still have Gu blood running in your veins, so your marriage isn't something you can decide on your own. Our family has already fixed you up with a good partner."
"You shall return with me today. In three days, you will marry into the Cen Family and become their young lady. Think about it for a second. Think of what a big honor it would be."
As the middle-aged man was speaking, Luo Yunyang heard a few young Gu Family members whispering. "I never expected this wretch to be so pretty. It's such a waste that she will be marrying a fool. The beauty and the pig... What a pity!"
When he heard this, Luo Yunyang's eyes flashed with cold anger.
