Chapter 349 – Fright on Board (8)
Having no other alternative, Su Luo could only bite the bullet and follow by his side, enduring the crowd’s stares.
Subsequently, Beichen Ying, Anye Ming and Lan Xuan, every single one of them appeared, self-confident, unafraid and without regard for others.
Each and every one of their entrance gave the crowd an intense and awe-inspiring visual impression.
Each of them were arrogant sons of heaven, with large clans supporting behind each of them. Their statuses were exceedingly high and precious, such that should they have a mishap, very likely, the entire continent would be thrown in turmoil.
The instant he saw Su Luo, the face of a person among the crowd immediately blackened.
The Crown Prince’s pair of eyes were malicious. His complexion became gloomy enough that water could drip out from it.
Earlier, there were already rumors of Nangong Liuyun and Su Luo having an affair, initially, he did not believe it. Because Nangong Liuyun was what kind of exalted person, how could he fancy a good-for-nothing like Su Luo?
Only, he could never have imagined, that a girl he did not want to marry and personally broke off the engagement with, would in the blink of an eye, hook up with Nangong Liuyun. This was simply a slap to his face!
The Crown Prince coldly glared at Su Luo, seeing her walk past by his side, he couldn’t help but to coldly snort: “Loathsome girl, who allowed you to come here? What qualifications do you have to be in this place?”
Su Luo dismissively cast him a glance .
Oh? The Crown Prince? How could she bump into him? Really unlucky.
Without waiting for Su Luo to reply, Beichen Ying who was on the side, had already jumped out. With matters that could make it difficult for the Crown Prince, he was always the first in line.
One could see Beichen Ying with his hands folded behind his back, strutting over. He cast sidelong glances at the Crown Prince with head high and chest out: “Oh? Here I was wondering who it is. So, it turned out to be Nangong Liujue ah. What, last year, you couldn’t even catch a single fish. Did you come here to disgrace yourself again this year?”
Beichen Ying, this child’s words, were just that adorably honest. A single sentence had already made the Crown Prince choke until his face was as black as the bottom of a pot.
The Crown Prince viciously glared at him then coldly snorted a few times: “This prince is speaking with Su Luo, what are you mouthing off for!”
Beichen Ying did not mind the Crown Prince’s attitude one bit and started laughing instead: “I say, you’re such an interesting person. The other person obviously can’t be bothered with you, why are you jolting your butt so eagerly(1) to move closer? You’re even the Crown Prince, how shameless.”
The Crown Prince’s face grew livid!
Did this little brat know how to speak properly?! Why did every sentence seem to be dipped in venom, simply could poison people to death.
The Crown Prince angrily huffed and glared once more at Beichen Ying before turning his head to holler at Su Luo: “You, come over here for this prince!”
Su Luo somewhat speechlessly rolled her eyes at this Crown Prince(2).
Was this person sick? Did she have any relation to him? He really thought himself to be so desirable?
Su Luo appeared not to have heard him. She turned her head towards another direction, admiring the scenery in the distance with great interest.
Who knew that this move of hers would offend the Crown Prince completely. One could see him stomping quickly towards Su Luo, his long arm reaching out to pull her away with a tug. However, before he could even get close to Su Luo, suddenly, the tip of a sword flew towards his arms.
The Crown Prince jumped back in fright.
If he had insisted on going to pull Su Luo, then this arm would certainly be gone.
The Crown Prince’s line of sight pinned on Nangong Liuyun poisonously, before turning to glare at Su Luo: “Get over here for this prince! You as such a fickle woman, still aren’t ashamed yet?”
This line of his, simply designated Su Luo as part of his own belongings.
No matter how good Su Luo’s temperament was, she was still infuriated by him. Not to mention, Su Luo’s temper had never been good to begin with.
One only saw the corners of her lips cocking up icily as she threw a sidelong glance at the Crown Prince. Her voice became increasingly dismissive: “Nangong Liujue, open up your dog eyes wide and see clearly. We have already broken our engagement and no longer have any relationship, not even a little bit. So cease using your status as Crown Prince to disgust me.”
1) It’s been used many times in this story before, but it’s a lot funnier when you know the words we replaced with ‘eagerly’ is actually an intensifier that means ‘jolting buttocks’, like the shaking ass of a follower hurrying to keep up and please someone. So much humor is lost even when jolting buttocks is added. (sigh)
Chapter 350 – Amethyst Thorned Island (1)
Nangong Liujue simply could not have imagined, originally that meek-like-a-kitten Su Luo, who had strived very hard again and again only to obtain one glance from him, would now use this kind of mocking tone and taunting manner to speak with him.
Nangong Liujue furiously hollered: “Loathsome girl, granted, even if you are not this prince’s legal imperial concubine, you also have to become my concubine on the side. You think you can escape from this? Why haven’t you quickly crawled back to this king!”
Saying this, Nangong Liujue was about to go pull Su Luo again.
Originally, he really didn’t have any interest in Su Luo, but after hearing that this loathsome girl had unexpectedly and quietly cultivated to the third rank, she was so gifted that it simply shocked people. Even more, she was someone Nangong Liuyun fancied.
From childhood to adulthood, he and Nangong Liuyun had always been irreconcilable.
Things that Nangong Liuyun wanted, he must grab it back. Even if he couldn’t snatch it back, he must also destroy it.
Nangong Liuyun’s sword-like eyebrows knitted slightly, he faintly swept Nangong Liujue a glance.
This glance appeared to be light as a cloud or gentle as a breeze, but was overcast with a bloody ruthlessness that threatened to vent its anger violently. This gave Nangong Liujue a severe cold feeling, the temperature was like being in an icehouse.
Beichen Ying smiled faintly and raised an eyebrow. “Oh, Nangong Liujue, how did our home’s sister-in-law become your concubine on the side? You still have the nerve to say this out loud. Also, why haven’t you looked in the mirror to see what kind of revolting person you are.”
Beichen Ying had always been merciless towards the Crown Prince, never giving him face.
Nangong Liujue’s complexion was ashen, he had choked back a breath and was just about to curse out loud, when Lan Xuan stole his thunder to get there first.
Lan Xuan put on a grown-up manner, hardening his face to lecture Nangong Liujue: “You, as a person, are really something. The crown prince should have the poise and character of a crown prince. Look at our home’s Anye, proper and impressive in appearance, elegantly poised. This is the demeanor of a proper crown prince. When you have time, learn to emulate him a little more.”
Nangong Liujue, a high and mighty crown prince, as a respected elder, was reprimanded like a little brother would be. He was infuriated to the point of snarling in rage at them.
This time, he was cut off by a glance from Anye Ming: “Want to continue being the crown prince smoothly and steadily, then manage well your small piece of land. Extending your hand that far, aren’t you afraid of having it chopped off.”
These three people, each and every one of their background was not small. When speaking, each of them was fiercer and more poisonous than the other. They simply overwhelmed the Crown Prince, who was too weary to cope.
With great difficulty, he waited until the three of them finished lecturing him in a row, then the Crown Prince finally had a chance to glare at Su Luo in rage: “I’m giving you one last chance, are you going to follow this prince to walk away or not?”
Those three people, he could not afford to offend, but Su Luo was merely a tiny ant that he could pinch into a sphere or roll flat between his fingers.
Unexpectedly, this tiny ant was already not that ant from the olden days. Now, her complexion was indifferent, the words she said were even more poisonous than the three of them added together: “Nangong Liujue, you think you are the crown prince. In my eyes, you are no better than a beggar, want this lady to follow you? Your wishful thinking. In your dreams!”
“Su Luo!” The Crown Prince was ridiculed again, and was simply put in an awkward situation, unable to get out.
Originally, he still believed that Su Luo would at least give him some face. He still thought that Su Luo at least cared about him from her old affections. Back then, as long as he gave her one glance, she would almost start to fly…didn’t expect, never expected!
The Crown Prince’s expression hazed over and changed the topic of conversation with a mocking tone: “Oh, this is because you bumped into a backer, full of confidence, right? You better not think he will marry you, you are merely someone he is toying with and nothing more. After this event, will you still be crying and calling, coming over to beg for this king?”
Nangong Liuyun, who had been standing by the side since the beginning and hadn’t talked, displayed a concentrated icy intent with his body. He was cold as frost, his dark red lips slowly hooking up. An ice-cold disdainfulness flashed through his eyes as he cast frosty side glances at the Crown Prince: “You have an objection?”
