Chapter 372 – Jade Lake’s Fairy (4)
Without waiting for Nangong Liuyun to speak, she again smilingly said to Su Luo: “Miss Su, Nangong is just like this, didn’t take care of you satisfactorily before, so please don’t mind it.”
She had the posture of a main female hostess.
Su Luo indifferently cast Nangong Liuyun a glance, the corner of her mouth rising into a ridiculing arc.
It was not that long ago, that this man was determined to hold her hand and lead her walking by in front of everyone while strutting around. He had an appearance of cupping a treasure in the center of his palm. Right now, she seemed to be superfluous, no, not seeming, rather, of course she was superfluous.
Could it be she was merely there to fill in the loneliness, emptiness and coldness when the Jade Lake’s Fairy was not around?
Su Luo had this ridiculing expression as she looked at Nangong Liuyun, but this stingy guy didn’t even bother to give her a glance and directly acted as if she didn’t exist.
Men ah, truly mercurial! Su Luo’s heart was sour, and slanted her head away to look at the landscape outside.
Beichen Ying was always aware of Li Yaoyao’s gentle, soft and tender appearance on the surface, while her heart was incomparably strong. He saw Su Luo’s dramatic change, and wanted to say something to rectify this, but was broken off by Su Luo.
Su Luo smilingly said: “What taking offense? The Jade Fairy is being overly sensitive.”
Su Luo conceded to her the position of main female hostess on Nangong Liuyun’s yacht.
She had numerous words that would put the Jade Lake’s fairy on the spot, however…was it worth it?
This man’s heart, from beginning to end, only had the Jade Lake’s fairy, not a single moment would he not protect her. Again, for what reason, should she vie for him with the Jade Lake’s Fairy? What was there that was worth fighting over? Could she even manage to win it over? Even if she was able to win it over, what was the use?
However, Su Luo had not anticipated that Nangong Liuyun’s face would, in an instant, condense into frost. His pair of beautiful eyes was like a millennium-old glacier, revealing sharp, ice-cold rays of light, giving off a trace of cold intent.
The Jade Lake’s Fairy didn’t seem to be aware of it and smilingly said to Su Luo: “That’s right, is Miss Su also here to hook some Amethyst Thorned fishes?”
“Came to see the world.” Su Luo stingily and lightly replied.
The Jade Lake’s Fairy saw Su Luo’s lonely expression and smiling in a consoling manner, said: “Miss Su, you need not be so broken-hearted, Amethyst Thorned fishes are usually hard to catch. Even more so with your foundations…therefore, not catching one is reasonable. When I was five years old, it was my first time coming, and back then, I also didn’t catch a single fish. Therefore, you really needn’t be so heartbroken.”
Once these words were said, the expressions of everyone present were even stranger than before.
The Jade Lake’s Fairy was immersed in the joy of Su Luo automatically withdrawing and the blow she dealt her, that she became so careless as to not sense the peculiarity in people’s expressions. Her smile was as splendid and dazzling as a hundred flowers.
But a mocking expression flashed through Su Luo’s eyes.
The Jade Lake’s Fairy’s heart was thrown into disorder.
The person who had the so-called concerned mind was now thrown into upheaval. Such a noble, virtuous and aloof little princess from the Jade Lake Palace, because of Nangong Liuyun, let go of her womanly appearance to personally go into battle and ended up humiliating herself. It also could be considered too tough on her.
What meanings her words had, everybody was well aware of, unfortunately, her news lagged behind too much. And she still wasn’t aware that Su Luo was now a
third rank, and not a good-for-nothing waste anymore.
She held the five-year-old her in comparison to Su Luo…She really thought too highly of herself ah.
Su Luo’s eyes that could distinguish black from white was like water, so clear you could see to the bottom. Her gaze met those of the Jade Lake’s Fairy’s, and the corner of Su Luo’s eyes poked up as the corner of her mouth hooked up slightly, indifferently saying: “The Jade Lake’s Fairy, you mustn’t console me. Why is it that I feel more heartbroken the more you try to console me?”
The Jade Lake’s Fairy, this ‘giving oneself airs of consoling’, if the essence of her heart fell short just a little, then wasn’t it that the more you listen to her, the more deeply hurt you feel?
But Su Luo’s truthful sentence was like poking at a bee’s nest, one could only see the Jade Lake’s Fairy’s expression freezing, momentarily, a layer of shallow fog appeared in that pair of huge, clear eyes. She gave off an appearance of having her heart seriously wounded.
Chapter 373 – Jade Lake’s Fairy (5)
With an expression of self-blame and feeling guilty until she almost cried, she said: “Miss Su, are you in the midst of blaming me? But I am truly concerned about you, how could you say such things about me?”
Su Luo also didn’t expect that the kind of noble, virtuous and icily arrogant Jade Lake’s Fairy she had first met back then, would in a split second, change into a lovely, pitiful, delicate, white lotus flower. She couldn’t help but give her a thumbs up in her heart.
She really could act, her performance was truly great.
Look at that lovely, pitiful, little appearance, it was a much better act when compared to Lan Xuan and their performance earlier. If Lan Xuan and them had this kind of acting skills, not to say one hundred Amethyst Thorned fishes, even one thousand fishes, she would present it to them without blinking an eye.
The Jade Lake’s Fairy was still not finished, her slender fair hand tugged at Nangong Liuyun’s sleeves with an appealing-for-fairness-and-justice manner: “Third senior brother, you say, just a moment ago, what I said, isn’t it truly because I was concerned about Miss Su? I really didn’t expect that her inner heart would be this weak. I really didn’t do it on purpose.”
Nangong Liuyun merely looked at her with an indifferent smile and didn’t speak a word.
“Third senior brother, why don’t you say something? Only you can get back justice for me.” Delicate as a white lotus flower, that pair of beautiful eyes was misty with tears. If she hadn’t seen it with her own eyes, everyone would believe that she had suffered endless times of being wronged.
Su Luo raised an eyebrow, with a ghost of a smile, she cast a sidelong glance at Nangong Liuyun. She really wanted to see what kind of justice Nangong Liuyun would deal out.
Yet, Nangong Liuyun still hadn’t stepped forth to declare his position before another man, that had stood by the Jade Lake’s Fairy’s side since the beginning, stepped out. He glared threateningly at Su Luo with an imposing manner.
The double-edged sword in his hand suddenly thrust out.
“Dare to be disrespectful to Yaoyao, courting death!”
Li Aotian’s voice was proud and coldly detached, his longsword was even more sinister and bone-chilling. It showed no quarter as it thrust towards Su Luo’s throat.
Nobody would have anticipated that Li Aotian actually said he would take action, and immediately did just that. Moreover, he went straight for a killing maneuver.
Also, what kind of person was Li Aotian? He was Jade Lake Palace’s younger generation’s number two master expert, now, he was already at the sixth rank, merely one short rank below Nangong Liuyun, and nothing more.
The ice-cold long sword thrust towards Su Luo’s throat, relentlessly——
Su Luo’s eyes were as serene as water.
Nangong Liuyun, will you look on unfeelingly as I fall in a pool of blood?
The corner of Su Luo’s mouth lifted into a fireworks kind of desolate smile.
Just when the longsword was at a distance about a hand’s width from Su Luo’s throat, all of a sudden, a fine, white finger with distinct joints, abruptly appeared, and lightly flicked that longsword. Immediately, that imposing and threatening longsword unexpectedly twisted to the side, cleanly brushing pass Su Luo’s slim neck.
“Nangong Liuyun!” Li Aotian, utterly discomfited, glared at Nangong.
He didn’t expect that Nangong Liuyun would take action at the very last second.
Hadn’t Yaoyao already pulled to stop him? Wasn’t he already intimate with Yaoyao to the point that nothing could come between them?
Nangong Liuyun slowly stood up, his sideways glance meeting up with the Jade Lake’s Fairy’s gaze. The corner of his mouth was hooked into an extremely weird smile, he reached out his hands to brush his sleeves. He easily flicked away the Jake Lake’s Fairy’s hand that was wrapped around his arm with not the least bit of tenderness, directly and efficiently.
The Jade Lake’s Fairy looked in astonishment at her comforting hand that was just removed, in a daze, she stared fixedly at Nangong Liuyun: “Third senior brother…”
“Uhm.” Nangong Liuyun unhurriedly walked to Su Luo’s side and stood side by side with her. He smiled a smile that was yet not one at the Jade Lake’s Fairy. He then raised an eyebrow and smilingly said, but his tone was deeply cold: “It’s good that you still remember I am your third senior brother.”
“Third senior brother…” The Jade Lake’s Fairy took a step forward, wretchedly looking at this figure that led her soul around in a dreamlike state.
“Remember it, I will forever be your third senior brother, but it is only this single identity to you.” Nangong Liuyun held Su Luo’s hand and pulled it up.
Chapter 374 – Jade Lake’s Fairy (6)
Su Luo wanted to withdraw her hand, but he only gripped hers even more tightly. No matter how much strength she used. in front of him, it was like an ant trying to shake a tree, simply unable to move him in the slightest.
Nangong Liuyun’s eyes, without the least bit of pity, met with the Jade Lake’s Fairy’s pair of wretched eyes. Under his fluid gaze that seemed tranquil, though it hid a hawk-like, sharp, cutting edge, he firmly declared: “Look closely at her. She is Princess Jin, apart from her, there will never be another.”
“Boom——” The Jade Lake’s Fairy only felt her own head exploding, the blood flowing backwards, and waves of dizziness burst from her forehead.
Just a moment ago, they were still good, why was it that in a split second, the situation took such a dramatic turn? In the end, where did the problem come from?
The Jade Lake’s Fairy’s eyes were hazy from tears, lovely and pitiful: “Third senior brother…How could you be like this?”
Li Aotian supported the Jade Lake’s Fairy who was on the verge of collapse, his expression extremely ugly. His cold and detached gaze swept towards Nangong Liuyun.
“Nangong Liuyun, do you still remember your promise to the Jade Lake Palace?”
“Never will I forget it.” Nangong Liuyun’s gaze was sharp and abstruse. His thin, scarlet red lips hooked up apathetically.
“Since you haven’t forgotten, then how dare you treat Yaoyao in this way?” Li Aotian, with unbearable anger, loudly hollered, “Do you know how great was the price Yaoyao paid for you? How can you be this ungrateful, as to kick the teeth of your benefactor? Has your conscience been eaten by a dog?”
Nangong Liuyun’s rich black eyes were like the quiet sea under white clouds, tranquil and obscure. He unhurriedly and languidly spoke one sentence: “Don’t tell me, you think this king ought to give his heart to repay a kindness?”
“You——” Li Aotian was immediately choked off.
Demanding the arrogant Nangong Liuyun to use this way to repay a kindness, you might as well just kill him off straightforwardly.
Nangong Liuyun indifferently glanced once at the Jade Lake’s Fairy: “Yaoyao, if from now on you will be obedient, then you still will be my, Nangong Liuyun’s, little sister. If on the other hand…”
What was the meaning of ‘if on the other hand’, everyone was crystal clear about it.
“Third senior brother…don’t want….” Two rows of pure tears tumbled from the Jade Lake’s Fairy’s beautiful eyes. She movingly and sadly, gazed fixedly at Nangong Liuyun.
His rejection was just that direct and efficient, simply not giving her any leeway to delude herself.
She didn’t want it!
She had set her mind on him since childhood, all these years, she had continually waited for him to come to marry her. But then, one day, he actually informed her that the person he wanted to marry was not her. She could not accept this, was determined not to accept it!
“Why….Why, just a moment ago, we were still good, and suddenly, it all changed into the circumstances right now? Is it because of second older brother? I can apologize for it. Miss Su, I send my apologies to you. My second older brother was unintentional. He was too furious, thus ended up like this. Will you please forgive us okay…”
Such an arrogant and proud Jade Lake’s Fairy, had now thrown her self-respect to the ground for Nangong Liuyun to trample on. She even admitted to an error and apologized towards Su Luo.
Su Luo was messed up until she was at a loss because of the drastic change.
Nangong Liuyun, this shitty guy, just a moment ago, it still seemed as if he and the Jade Lake’s Fairy was in a close relationship where others couldn’t step in between them. Now, he had changed into the appearance of clearly setting down the boundary with her. He was really indeed too changeable and fickle, with indeterminate moods that went from overcast to clear!
Nangong Liuyun watched the Jade Lake’s Fairy and gave a sigh: “Yaoyao, do you really want to know? Even if this answer may injure you?”
Nangong Liuyun’s pair of eyes still had that indifferent smile, the corner of his mouth was still hooked into that nefarious, flattering arc. He had a calm and composed expression. His body gave off a completely-staying-out-of-it manner.
The Jade Lake’s Fairy’s body trembled from head to toe as she thought about it, finally, she still quietly nodded her head: “Yes, even if I die. I, Li Yaoyao, if I were to die, I want to die with clarity.”
Nangong Liuyun was never a master that had tender, protective feelings for the fairer sex. One only saw him slowly start to talk, making people respect him and feel that he was too high to reach.
