Chapter 95: Forced Upon (2)
“Let me go, you rascal, you dirty scoundrel!” Gu Qingluo pounded Su Chen’s back.
She possessed an Origin Beast Bloodline, and now that it had awakened, she was very powerful, to the point that even Su Chen wasn’t her opponent. However, when Su Chen embraced her, she felt her entire body go weak, and she had no way of resisting.
Su Chen brought her into a forested area, set up a pile of stones, and propped a few pieces of straw up amongst the stone pile to serve as incense. He lit them, then said, “With the Heaven as my witness, from this day forward, I, Su Chen, take Gu Qingluo as my wife. My love for her will not change until the end of time……”
He was originally planning on saying some sentiments like “til death do us part” and “we’ll grow old together.” But when he remembered that Gu Qingluo was about to leave him and that even having an extra day would be a big favor from the Dragon Envoy, he wasn’t able to utter them. As such, he thought for a moment, before continuing to say, “A kowtow to Heaven[1. This is a common routine in Chinese weddings. It is analogous to the exchanging of vows in traditional Western weddings.]”
He brought Gu Qingluo over to kowtow as well.
Gu Qingluo twisted her head away. “Go away! I don’t want to marry you!”
Su Chen continued to hold onto her. “Qingluo, I admit that I was wrong, but are you really willing to leave me and never see me again?”
Gu Qingluo wanted to say that she was willing to do so, but as soon as she opened her mouth, Su Chen moved in and kissed her. Gu Qingluo felt like the world was spinning around her.
Su Chen’s kiss was not gentle and had a bit of forcefulness about it. Gu Qingluo, on the other hand, wasn’t a forceful person at all. Her stubbornness had been riled up due to Zhu Xianyao, but she just couldn’t compare with Su Chen. She felt herself going limp and had no strength to resist.
Su Chen led her to kowtow together.
Because none of their parents were here, Su Chen didn’t say, “a second kowtow to parents.” Instead, he took Gu Qingluo and kowtowed in Tang Lifeng’s direction instead.
Tang Lifeng was here to escort someone, but he had suddenly assumed first, the role of witness, and second, that of parental figures. He was completely speechless.
After the second kowtow came the third.
For some reason, Gu Qingluo suddenly seemed to recover. She began to yell, “I don’t want to marry you!”
She jabbed a finger at Su Chen.
This time it was an actual attack.
Su Chen shifted to the side, dodging this finger jab. Immediately afterwards, Gu Qingluo’s palm came charging towards him. Because they were so close, Su Chen wasn’t able to dodge. The palm slammed into him, causing him to cough up a mouthful of blood as he collapsed to the ground.
Gu Qingluo was frightened quite badly. She knew how powerful her strike had been; even though she hadn’t used her full strength, it wasn’t an attack that just anyone could withstand. She had attacked out of anger, and Su Chen had born the full brunt of her power. He would already be quite lucky if he didn’t die.
When Su Chen was still hale and healthy, she hated him. But when she saw him injured like this, her heart began to ache. She hugged Su Chen and said, “Su Chen, Su Chen, are you alright?”
Su Chen grabbed Gu Qingluo’s hand and spat out with some difficulty, “The husband and wife…… kowtow to each other.”
When she saw that Su Chen still intended on going through with the marriage procedure, Gu Qingluo felt like laughing, crying, and yelling at him all at the same time.
However, Su Chen held onto Gu Qingluo tightly. It seemed like there was nothing she could do but marry him. Gu Qingluo allowed him to press her head to the ground, and they kowtowed to one another.
After finishing the marriage ritual with quite some difficulty, Su Chen’s body began to sag.
Gu Qingluo hugged him tightly, her eyes filled with tears.
Su Chen, however, continued to smile. “Now you are my wife. See, even Heaven itself cannot stop us, and neither can fate.”
Gu Qingluo forced herself to turn away from him. It seemed like she wasn’t fully satisfied yet.
Su Chen thought for a moment, then said, “Right, we haven’t had our bridal chamber experience yet. Can we really say we are married if we are lacking that experience?”
Gu Qingluo was extremely embarrassed. She gave him a gentle shove and said, “What are you talking about?”
Su Chen smiled at Tang Lifeng.
He didn’t say anything, but Tang Lifeng understood. He laughed, “You two take care of your business. I will give you another evening and come back tomorrow.”
As he spoke, he turned around and left.
Su Chen leered a bit at Gu Qingluo. “Only you and I are here now.”
As he spoke, he picked up Gu Qingluo and began to carry her towards a nearby cave.
Gu Qingluo blushed hard, and she struggled in Su Chen’s arms. “Hey, don’t do this!”
But how could a little lamb resist the big bad wolf? Su Chen carried Gu Qingluo to the cave, set her down, then began to undo her garments.
Gu Qingluo was about to attack again out of shame and anger, but she saw Su Chen cough slightly as blood trickled out of his mouth.
“Su Chen, you……” She was flustered. “Your wounds are too serious. Take some time to recover first; this isn’t that urgent of a matter.”
“No worries. My lower half isn’t injured,” Su Chen replied.
Gu Qingluo felt like she was about to faint from embarrassment. She wanted to crawl into a hole and die, but she watched as Su Chen pulled off her outer robe, revealing her pale white shoulders and a rosy, dazzling bosom.
Gu Qingluo screamed out like a girl who was about to be raped, “Please, no!”
However, this only awakened the beast-like instincts within Su Chen.
He quickly took off his outer layer. Just as he was about to take off his undergarments, Gu Qingluo’s eyes lit up. “Thread Coral Robe?”
Su Chen’s heart jumped as he cursed silently.
Indeed, Gu Qingluo’s expression sank. “You aren’t actually that badly wounded, right?”
Gu Qingluo had already held back when she attacked. With the Thread Coral Robe’s protection as well, it was impossible for Su Chen to be wounded that badly.
Su Chen slammed his palm into his own chest. The cracking sound of bones breaking could clearly be heard.
“What are you doing!?” Gu Qingluo shrieked.
“Now I am,” Su Chen replied.
Gu Qingluo was dazed. “Why would you do this?”
“I’m willing to die for you. What is a wound like this? Anything is fine as long as you are willing,” Su Chen replied.
His words intoxicated Gu Qingluo.
Su Chen gently pressed her down and, ignoring the wounds on his chest, began to undress Gu Qingluo. He accidentally brushed his own wounds, causing him to almost black out from the pain.
However, he forcefully resisted the pain and swallowed the blood in his mouth. He was going to have his way with Gu Qingluo no matter what. It was a rarity for someone to be in as a hurry as him.
Even so, it seemed to be effective against Gu Qingluo.
She didn’t want Su Chen to hurt himself more, and every move that Su Chen made stirred up her lust as well. Gu Qingluo began to feel heady.
Article after article of clothing fell to the ground, and each bout of resistance was met by an even stronger attack.
The final layer of clothing was peeled off, revealing the human body in all its beauty.
Gu Qingluo’s resistance had eroded away. She was completely caught up in Su Chen’s passion, though her last remaining bit of consciousness cried out, “No!”
Su Chen responded with a violent penetration.
The slight pain caused Gu Qingluo’s heart to tremble, and she felt like her entire body was ascending to higher heights as Su Chen continued to attack.
Her gaze began to grow distant and unfocused, and she gradually began to lose herself.
She became lost in her sensations, just like that.
She became depraved just like that.
It’s fine, it’s fine. Everything might as well be this way.
No matter how much fate tried to stop it, I am now his wife.
She endured Su Chen’s attacks as her train of thought drifted off in this direction.
After the storm.
Su Chen lay on Gu Qingluo, breathing hard, after expelling the last bit of his essence.
Gu Qingluo stared up at the ceiling as if she was in a daze.
Su Chen asked her, “Are you alright?”
Gu Qingluo gritted her teeth and spat out, “Dirty scoundrel!”
