Chapter 433 – A new lease on life (5)
However, Su Luo waited for quite a while, seeing that Nangong Liuyun was still sitting there neatly, she couldn’t help but frown. Afterwards, she carefully scanned his complexion.
Before, she was too busy being mad that she didn’t get a good look. Now that she looked at him carefully, she found that his complexion was not in a good condition. He was overly pale.
Could it have anything to do with her vision being obstructed by the layer of ice? Su Luo thought with some doubts.
After another long period had passed, Nangong Liuyun finally got up.
His palm flipped over with a flying gesture, continuously forming, one after another, fiery red-colored imprints. Specks of fiery blaze landed on the ice sculpture, letting the flames melt the layer of ice.
Su Luo felt it was somewhat strange.
Normally, according to Nangong Liuyun’s strength, he shouldn’t have just produced such small flames.
He was much stronger compared to Li Aotian, Li Aotian was sixth rank while he was seventh rank. Li Aotian’s Heavenly Dance of Snowfall, as far as he was concerned, would only take a minute to undo.
But now, it had been more than an hour, Nangong Liuyun, the little flames he condensed out were still burning….making the length of time it persisted in undoing the ice excessively long.
This night…In the end, what happened to his body?
Could it be that just a moment ago when he was talking to her, it was for the purpose of stalling for time in order to restore the vital energy in his body?
There was a myriad of thoughts in Su Luo’s mind, with many huge question marks on top of her forehead. However now, she was frozen over, no matter how you said it, she couldn’t ask. She had no other choice but to wait patiently, to wait until she got out to ask.
Approximately another hour passed, suddenly, a thread of blood flowed out of the corner of Nangong Liuyun’s mouth.
Su Luo’s mind was abruptly jolted!
Nangong Liuyun was certainly injured! Otherwise, breaking a layer of ice wouldn’t injure him in this way.
She shouted loudly for Nangong Liuyun to stop, even though her voice couldn’t be transmitted out, but she still kept on mouthing the words.
Nangong Liuyun wiped away the blood at the corner of his mouth and only smiled faintly while saying one sentence: “If I was to stop now, the agreement from a moment ago would be invalid.”
Su Luo was immediately anxious.
Nangong Liuyun’s condition right now was very bad, even his body was tottering on the verge of collapse, so weak as to make a person’s heart ache in distress.
Even though all along, he had stubbornly propped himself up, but his hands trembled slightly, while cold sweat tumbled down drop by drop.
Again, another hour passed, at last, the piece of ice layer finally broke off.
All of a sudden, Su Luo’s body regained its freedom.
When Nangong Liuyun saw Su Luo come out, he finally let out a breath of relief, his Luo girl had finally come out.
Nangong Liuyun had been full of dread for a period of time, and the soles of his feet staggered slightly. Su Luo threw herself at him, wanting to support him, but now, her limbs were still stiff, and as a result, the both of them tumbled down onto the sandy shore.
Now, Nangong Liuyun could not continue to suppress it, and he uttered heavy coughs.
Along with the sound of coughing, fresh blood continuously spilled out of his mouth.
One mouthful after another, the blood sprayed out as if he didn’t want to live.
Upon seeing this, Su Luo’s heart was exceedingly distressed, but she was completely clueless and could only anxiously wait by his side.
With great difficulty, she waited for him to finish throwing up blood, and only now was Su Luo able to support him up. Her eyes were full of heartache, on one hand helping him to wipe clean the bloodstain at the corner of his mouth, while also trying to stop him: “I know that right now, you have a lot you want to say, but the timing is wrong. First, don’t speak, you should properly rest and adjust your body.”
Nangong Liuyun’s phoenix eyes blurred, he was half-unconscious and half-awake. He only looked at Su Luo while smiling, and struggled to talk: “You…promised…”
This man, even at this moment, was still concerned about that promise! Even so obviously, when he was about to die!
Su Luo was so infuriated that she glared at him: “Got it, the things I, Su Luo, promised, I will absolutely not renege on. Isn’t it just three months? I’ve memorized it all.”
This matter of swindling her into an agreement of three months of commitment, she absolutely would demand this debt back.
Chapter 434 – A new lease on life (6)
Su Luo took out a cup of Celestial Spirit Water from her space, and little by little, fed it into Nangong Liuyun’s mouth: “Come, drink this.”
At this point of time, Nangong Liuyun’s behavior was very clever and obedient, he laid on Su Luo’s lap, and following Su Luo’s hand, he drinked the water, one mouthful at a time, until it was gone.
After drinking Celestial Spirit Water, his complexion improved somewhat, his eyelids became increasingly heavy, and very quickly, he sank into a deep sleep.
Only now did Su Luo have an opportunity to size up Nangong Liuyun.
His complexion at this moment was horribly pale, the clothing on his body was also rather conspicuously bedraggled. His pair of hands had been soaked in seawater until they were swollen. Compared to that noble and arrogant His Highness Prince Jin from before, it was two entirely different people.
In fact, Su Luo really wanted to ask, in the end, did something take place in the Joyous Conjugal Room…But faced with Nangong Liuyun like this, she felt that asking him this sentence was an insult to him.
She continued to take care of him, and did not sleep for that night.
Early morning on the second day, under the first light of dawn, the two people slowly, while turning about, started to wake up.
After drinking that cup of Celestial Spirit Water, Nangong Liuyun’s mental alertness had improved somewhat. Nonetheless, his complexion was still as horribly pale as before, seemingly about to collapse from excessive blood loss.
When Su Luo opened her eyes, she saw his body leaning on its side, one hand supporting his forehead. His gaze was earnestly and seriously sizing her up, the him right now was like a gentle and tender fire.
Su Luo rubbed her eyes, and grumbled a verse: “What are you doing?”
Nangong Liuyun seemed to be a little unhappy, and as before, glared at Su Luo in a huff.
Su Luo was even more bewildered, first thing in the morning, why was it that this man was like a little child, again, what was he getting petulant about?
However, seeing that he had suffered a heavy injury, Su Luo did not begrudge his manner. She merely asked one sentence: “In the end, what are you mad about?”
Nangong Liuyun did not speak, flattened his mouth, not speaking. He used his eyes to convey his complaint.
Su Luo was simply somewhat at a loss, asking him and he won’t speak, then, what else could be done?
Su Luo helplessly stretched, rubbing her belly, she said: “Very hungry.”
Nangong Liuyun somewhat very fiercely said: “Su Luo, from now on, you are not allowed to say you are hungry to a man.”
“Eh?” Su Luo somewhat perplexedly looked at him.
“Only allowed to say it to this king!” Nangong Liuyun said, full of arrogance and with a lovable overtone.
“Such behavior.” Su Luo irritatedly snorted.
Compared to before when she was trapped like a mummy in the ice sculpture, the feeling at this moment of having her feet planted on solid ground was really great. Su Luo inhaled a deep breath of fresh and clean air and turned around to ask Nangong Liuyun: “Is your body a little better?”
“Now you know to be concerned about this king? Humph, too late.” Nangong Liuyun turned his face away.
Su Luo was made amused by his childishness.
Was it possible that he was peeved in the early morning because she didn’t seem concerned about him? Yet last night, she had clearly kept a watch on him for a night, until finally, she couldn’t remain awake and fell into a deep sleep.
Su Luo gave him a quick stare: “I was concerned about you all along, okay? Don’t be so lacking in conscience like this.”
She used a nice tone and good mood to coax him. He was still throwing a tantrum, but with Su Luo glaring at him, it had obtained an entirely different result. All of a sudden, Nangong Liuyun sat up with a happy expression across his entire face, full of conceit: “Say it, in what ways were you concerned about this king?”
“Does preparing to find food for you count?” Su Luo did not feel like competing with this childish man.
He merely looked at her with that pale face lacking any blood, don’t know why, but in the depths of her heart, pain still gripped it tightly.
“I want to eat congee!” Nangong Liuyun made a request and still seriously reminded her: “Shredded chicken congee that is boiled very thick and sticky.”
Yesterday, he was still in an unconscious state with an about-to-die appearance, today, he was immediately in great spirits?
