Chapter 263 – Prince Jin’s Royal Manor (14)
The veins on Su Luo’s forehead were about to explode! She tightly clenched her fists, and glared at him furiously. She simply gave up on talking sense into this evildoer!
“Why must it be me who does it? The last thing you lack at your residence are servants. In all likelihood, just one command from His Highness Prince Jin and an innumerable number of servants would crawl to wait upon him!” Su Luo sent a glare his way while speaking the truth.
Nangong Liuyun’s serene and unperturbed gaze swept the circle of servants whose heads were bowed from embarrassment. Just a light, casual sweeping glance.
However, as far as the surrounding servants were concerned, His Highness Prince Jin’s faint glance immediately gave them the feeling of an icy autumn gale sweeping away the fallen leaves, it was harsh and desolate.
“Highness, His Highness…We will first, first take our leave.” The circle of servants all kneeled with respect and trepidation. Their entire body was trembling in fear and anxiety.
“Uhm.” Nangong Liuyun had one hand raised to his forehead, and lightly hummed, seemingly in answer.
“Hey, don’t you guys leave so urgently.” Su Luo watched helplessly. When these servants left, then wouldn’t Nangong Liuyun be even more intent on wanting a mile when given an inch?
However, Su Luo’s voice to these servants was like a sign pressuring them to continue. At the beginning they were still walking, when Su Luo spoke, then practically all of them ran. In a split second, all of them disappeared without a trace.
Seeing this, Su Luo simply wanted to cry but had no tears. She said to Nangong Liuyun with a dumbfounded expression: “Does every one of your servants know the martial arts move Ling Bo Wei Bu (1)?”
It was simply too fast.
“Fleeing for one’s life at the critical juncture, their potential would naturally be unlimited.” Nangong Liuyun lightly snorted, and once again changed the subject, “Come here, beg for forgiveness for yourself.”
“Nangong Liuyun, you better not push your luck.” Su Luo stood determinedly at a distance and glared at him in displeasure.
Nangong Liuyun’s eyes drooped down, after a long time, it once again silently lifted up to glance at Su Luo: “Others say that having benefited from someone’s small favors, it should be doubly repaid. Why don’t you consider it as repaying a small favor?”
She couldn’t bear his faint sigh and dejected manner. Su Luo conceded defeat and slowly walked to in front of him, softly asking: “In the end what do you really want?”
Actually, what he said was right, when she hid under his horse carriage, indeed, she really ought to thank him. If it weren’t for him showing up just in time by chance, she wouldn’t have escaped Liu Chengfeng’s pursuit, because of the tracking imprint he had placed on her.
Nangong Liuyun raised his head to look at her, his tone had a touch of a spoiled child throwing a tantrum: “Tonight, you should stay and keep me company.”
This man was truly reaching for the mile when given an inch. He would seize such a small favor to coerce her. He had also made the use of coercion seem so righteous and proper.
However, how could she agree to stay behind? This promise would represent her making a certain degree of concession.
Her staying overnight at Prince Jin’s Royal Manor, if it were to be spread out by other people, then how would they view this? What would people think about this? How could she get back her innocence? In the future, how could she righteously and confidently pursue her own happiness?
Therefore, faced with his request, she didn’t say a word.
“Stay behind to keep me company.” He repeated again.
“This matter, I’m afraid, is not possible.” Su Luo softly replied, her gaze steadily fixed on his.
Nangong Liuyun didn’t speak. Suddenly, after quite a while, the corner of his mouth pulled slightly apart and he started to smile in a devilishly charming manner: “Foolish Luo Luo, you are simply too slow-witted. Without this king’s consent, how could you leave this royal manor?”
After all, his soft manner and humble air, pretending to be pitiful and cutely beseeching her just a moment ago, it was merely just one type of tactic. The thing he set his mind to and the person he was determined to have, he would never let go.
“Nangong Liuyun, you are shameless.” Su Luo naturally knew of this point. It was not like she hadn’t tried to go out. She simply could not exit the gate of even the Qin Palace section of the manor, she had been immediately blocked at the gate.
“Shameless huh? This king could even be a little more shameless, do you want to experience it?” Nangong Liuyun had a proud expression on his face, while smilingly watching her.
