Chapter 443 – A new lease on life (15)
“Then…you came out, what about the Jade Lake’s Fairy?” Su Luo couldn’t help but ask.
Nangong Liuyun was perplexed for a split second, he thought for a long time before remembering: “Oh, are you talking about her? Don’t know.”
“What? Don’t know!” Su Luo was shocked, unwaveringly staring at Nangong Liuyun, the dagger in her hand distractedly sliced by, leaving a cut on his sparkling, translucent and perfectly intact skin.
Nangong Liuyun, fuming with rage between gritted teeth, strongly and hatefully glared at her: “You want to murder your husband.”
“That’s not it…You left her in the Joyous Conjugal Room, abandoning her?” Su Luo really had a hard time imagining it.
“Then, otherwise, still need to bring her to run away on the escape route? You alone as a burden on this king is enough, anymore, and I am unable to take care of them.” Nangong Liuyun said quite bluntly.
Even though Nangong Liuyun used a disdainful tone, however, Su Luo couldn’t help but say that when she heard these words, in her heart, she was so pleased that it simply made a person burst with joy.
Still remembered back then in the Sunset Mountain Range, the Jade Lake’s Fairy and Nangong Liuyun’s figures were like a pair of immortals inseparable in love. When the Jade Lake’s Fairy left, she was disdainful of her.
Su Luo’s heart was very pleased and happy, she was unable to suppress the corner of her mouth from tilting up.
When Nangong Liuyun saw it, the corner of his mouth perked up into a simple smile, and he gave voice to a soft laugh: “That made you this happy?”
“Who’s happy?” Su Luo fiercely glared at him, even she herself didn’t know, her smile carried a trace of sweet meaning.
“Exactly, wasn’t she just a foolish young woman across from me?” Nangong Liuyun lightly laughed as he looked at her.
Su Luo peevishly rolled her eyes at him: “Oh, that’s right, you still haven’t answered. Last night, the wind was high with rapid waves, in the end, how did you find me?”
After mentioning this, Nangong Liuyun once again glared at Su Luo very fiercely, itching to pounce up and eat her.
Su Luo’s heart became scared after being glared by him, in a daze, she asked: “Did I ask something wrong…?”
Seeing Nangong Liuyun grinding his teeth, didn’t know why, Su Luo’s conscience felt extremely guilty. Obviously, she hadn’t done anything wrong…
“Don’t feel like saying!” Nangong Liuyun sent a ruthless glare at her, closed his eyes and nodded off to sleep.
Fine, since you don’t feel like saying it, then don’t say it.
Su Luo concentrated on the final process of treating him.
The last blood-clotting pill was sprinkled on his wound.
The blood-clotting pill could be taken orally and applied externally to do its job.
This was the most intense medicinal pill, it was more than ten times as painful as before.
Nangong Liuyun took deep breaths continuously, his lanky body was motionless. If you didn’t look carefully, you wouldn’t find any indication of the pain he was in.
“Does it hurt?” Su Luo asked, her heart aching.
“No.” Nangong Liuyun slowly sucked in a breath, faintly sighed and released a breath of air, “Used to it.”
Suddenly, Su Luo felt her nose souring, the rim of her eyes turning slightly red. She turned her face away.
One phrase of ‘used to it’, how many years of painful suffering had he gone through? She knew he was talking about the pain in his body, that would act up once every month.
A trace of shock flashed through Su Luo’s mind.
Every month, Nangong Liuyun’s illness would flare up and ache for one night, calculating the time…
Su Luo glanced back, looking at Nangong Liuyun with a startled expression. The tears in her eyes almost tumbled
out, her voice carrying a trace of being choked with emotions: “Last night, your…illness flared up?”
Yes, that’s right, she didn’t remember it wrongly. It was precisely the fifteenth of every month that his illness would flare up!
When he heard this being said, Nangong Liuyun was almost gnashing his teeth in fury. He glared very fiercely towards Su Luo: “You are still aware of it!”
Su Luo’s heart become even weaker…
Nangong Liuyun took a few deep breaths, finally glaring at Su Luo severely. Slowly stressing each word, he grinded his teeth before finally biting out: “Last night, this king, in order to chase after you, simply…called you and still received no answer!”
Chapter 444 – Softly fragrant and romantic (1)
She could imagine that last night, he had already received such heavy internal injuries and external trauma, in addition to his illness flaring up, on top of that. Also, running into a storm surge on the ocean…so out of luck, how did he run into all these misfortunes?
As for her? What was she doing at that time?
Once Su Luo thought about this, she simply wanted to cover her face.
Last night, under such conditions of high wind and rapid waves, she…actually fell asleep.
She could imagine him with great difficulty dragging his ill body that was seriously injured to chase after her. He was risking his life, sliding through the ocean, following after the direction she went spinning towards non-stop. While she was contentedly sound asleep, having a good dream…
Thinking of this, Su Luo was feeling so guilty that she nearly kneeled down in front of him.
Nangong Liuyun raised an eyebrow, cast a quick sidelong glance at Su Luo, and the corner of his lips rose slightly: “Now you are aware of your mistake?”
Su Luo kept silent but nodded her head with all her might.
Nangong Liuyun beckoned her with his hand: “Come here.”
Su Luo eagerly, with jolting buttocks, ran over. She cleverly sat in front of him, silently watching him.
That was a cleverly cute, meek appearance that Nangong Liuyun had never seen on her body.
Nangong Liuyun reached out his hand to rub her head: “Do you know what to do now?”
“Eh?” Su Luo expressed that she didn’t understand?
Nangong Liuyun slanted her a glance. He sought a comfortable position to lean against on the bed and looked at Su Luo nonchalantly: “Now, this king is hungry.”
Su Luo’s gaze landed on his chest wound.
After sprinkling blood-clotting pill on top, the blood flow on the wound had already stopped. Moreover, it had the faint signs of healing.
Su Luo washed a fruit and handed it over to Nangong Liuyun.
Unexpectedly, he was still very picky and shook his head: “This king doesn’t eat such random stuff.”
They were stranded on this uninhabited island and he was still this picky. Su Luo speechlessly cast him a glance: “Besides these fruits, there are only oysters and Amethyst Thorned fishes.”
Nangong Liuyun very extravagantly spoke a sentence: “Just the Amethyst Thorned fish then.”
One Amethyst Thorned fish was equivalent to one green-colored crystal stone. Fetching the fish to roast, then, you basically couldn’t absorb its spirit essence.
But Su Luo now lacked other stuff, and Amethyst Thorned fish was something she had plenty of. Once she heard Nangong Liuyun say this, she promised without raising any objections.
As far as barbecuing was concerned, Su Luo was so familiar with it that she could do it with one hand tied behind her back. In a short while, she had roasted two golden-colored Amethyst Thorned fishes, so fragrant that it assailed the nostrils.
Su Luo’s barbecuing skills was extremely good, both sides of the fish were golden and not burned, it was flaky and crispy at the same time. Just smelling it would make the person eating emotionally moved.
Su Luo handed the larger one to Nangong Liuyun: “Ready to eat, take it.”
Nangong Liuyun glanced once at her, with an aggrieved expression, he said: “You aren’t showing a bit of sincerity. In any case, shouldn’t you be feeding it to this king?”
“What?” Su Luo was extremely hungry herself, she had snatched up the roasted fish and was stuffing it in her mouth, and with obstructed speech, she asked.
Heavens knows it had already been two days since she had a grain of rice. She was so famished that her bones were sticking out.
“This king is a sick person!” Nangong Liuyun acted somewhat shamelessly.
Su Luo exasperatedly rolled her eyes at him: “Nothing wrong with your hands.”
“However, this king is a sick person! So sick I’m about to die!” Nangong Liuyun angrily glared at her.
An unreasonable male was simply incredibly childish.
Afraid that him getting angry would affect the wound, Su Luo could only raise both hands in surrender: “Okay, okay, okay, feed you, then just feed you, like a disabled person.”
Nangong Liuyun obviously was still somewhat displeased and turned his face away, not looking at Su Luo.
Su Luo didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, and said: “Didn’t I say I will feed you? Why are you still mad?”
“No sincerity.” Nangong Liuyun mumbled a phrase in complaint.
“How could I not have sincerity?” Su Luo sat properly at his side, with the other hand turning his face that was panting with rage back: “Ahhh, open your mouth——”
