Chapter 288 – To come knocking for a fight (5)
The muscles in Liu Potian’s cheeks jerked, would speaking nicely kill His Highness Prince Jin? Every phrase was as sharp as the edge of a sword, jabbing straight at a person’s heart.
“Your Highness! May I offer you a word of advice, it’s better that you hand over the person and crystal stone without delay. Otherwise, if this disturbance were to get to his Majesty, I’m afraid it won’t look good.” Liu Potian sat down, coldly glaring at Nangong Liuyun. He was saying this by relying on flaunting his influence.
This time, Nangong Liuyun didn’t even bother to take notice of this seventh rank expert. His phoenix eyes narrowed slightly, and in an indifferent tone, launched a question at Liu Chengfeng: “You are certain that that piece of cyan-colored crystal stone is yours?”
His Highness Prince Jin’s words were as sharp and icy as the edge of a blade. He only looked
at Liu Chengfeng understatedly, but Liu Chengfeng still felt as if he was placed into an icehouse. A whiff of icy air shot up rapidly from the soles of his feet. It spread to all four limbs and numerous bones of his body, until his entire body became so stiff that he was practically unable to move.
His Highness Prince Jin’s eyes were too bright and too clear, and with only one glance, the deepest and darkest places in his heart were nearly all illuminated. It was as if all the secrets he had were spread out in front of him.
Under the watchful and indifferent eyes of His Highness Prince Jin, Liu Chengfeng’s heart felt weak. He quietly turned his head away.
“Ahem!” Liu Potian let out a heavy snort sound. His pair of eyes were full of fire, shooting towards Liu Chengfeng.
Liu Chengfeng suddenly returned to his senses!
Right, now that Grandfather was already a seventh rank expert, he was stronger than His Highness Prince Jin’s sixth rank. At this point of time, he completely didn’t need to be
be afraid of His Highness Prince Jin, totally didn’t need to.
After providing courage to strengthen his heart, Liu Chengfeng suddenly lifted his head up. He firmly looked at Nangong Liuyun with a deadly earnest expression. Stressing each word, he said: “Yes, that cyan-colored crystal stone is mine. That day, it was cut out from a source stone I had bought at Old Chen’s place in the raw materials marketplace.”
“Who can bear witness to this?” A clear and resonate voice came from behind a screen. Taking a look after blinking, it actually turned out to be from a young man wearing a large, blue, Chinese-styled robe.
This young man’s facial features were pretty common, completely lacking any distinguishing quality. He was the kind that couldn’t be found when submerged in a crowd
a crowd of people. However, his pair of eyes flashed with a distinct, spirited manner. They were liquid-like, glossy and quick-witted, once seen, they were hard to forget.
When Nangong Liuyun saw Su Luo made up like this, he silently turned his face away. He had already guessed before that when Su Luo made him leave first, it was precisely because she wanted to disguise herself like this. Didn’t expect that he had really guessed correctly.
However, with regards to this kind of outcome, Nangong Liuyun was not at all very happy.
Why? In fact, the explanation was very simple. Su Luo appearing and choosing to use this disguise clearly expressed her desire not to expose her real identity in front of other people. And she had even concealed her true gender, preventing Nangong Liuyun from holding her hand openly and aboveboard, and thus declaring that Luo girl was his people.
He knew this girl was fond of disguising herself as a pig that could devour a tiger. He also knew that her heart had some misgivings, therefore he had indulged her all along. her all along. He had spoiled and pampered her, regardless of what choices she made, he would support her.
Completely opposite of Nangong Liuyun’s reaction, when Liu Chengfeng saw Su Luo, he was extremely happy. He jumped up and loudly shouted: “Humph! You shameless thief, you actually have the courage to show yourself. Quickly hand over the cyan-colored crystal stone!”
Su Luo smiled faintly and shot Liu Chengfeng a glance, with an innocent and perplexed expression, she said: “Why should I hand over the cyan-colored crystal stone to you? Do I owe you something?”
Although Liu Chengfeng kept on telling others that that cyan-colored crystal stone was what he got when gambling on stones. However, in his and Su Luo’s heart, they both understood that piece of crystal stone had been won from gambling by Su Luo and had nothing to do with Liu Chengfeng.
Therefore, under the gaze of Su Luo’s pair of clear black eyes, both of Liu Chengfeng’s cheeks burned hotly, and his heart had some self-doubt.
