Chapter 448 – Softly fragrant and romantic (5)
The seven days Nangong Liuyun said, starting from the first day, there was constant catastrophe.
It was not the type of natural disaster like being blown by wind and rained upon, rather, it was what would be considered a catastrophe.
Just barely managed to make Nangong Liuyun clean, Su Luo mopped up the wet patches on the ground. Su Luo got the person in the tub out and picked up the rest to toss it outside.
Unexpectedly, pouring out the water from the tub actually attracted a person over.
Seeing that malevolent and frightening face in front of her, Su Luo detected a sense of familiarity.
This face was densely covered in scars, full of pot-holes, and one of the eyes had been blown away; he was horrible to look at.
The other party’s sole remaining eye seemed to be tempered with venom, as it unwaveringly stared at Su Luo and was unblinkingly fixed on her.
Stunned, nicely surprised, hatred, bitter resentment…All these came together within that single eyes suffused with dark green radiance.
“Li…Aotian?” It took Su Luo a long time to recognize him.
This ugly person was actually Li Aotian? It was simply too unfathomable.
She remembering the Li Aotian from a few days ago, who was covered from head to toe in a dark green embroidered robe. His appearance was clearly smart with handsome facial features. Although he fell just short of Nangong Liuyun’s looks, his appearance was still extremely outstanding.
But the him right now was so ugly as to frighten even the deity of ghosts to tears. If you glued him to the door, his looks could ward off evil spirits. If you hung him on the headboard of a bed, he could act as a type of contraception.
Li Aotian stared fixedly at Su Luo, fuming with rage between gritted teeth: “Loathsome girl! The heavens didn’t want me to die! I finally found you!”
Li Aotian’s hands were like the claws of an eagle, fast as electricity it reached for Su Luo’s shoulder!
From an extremely handsome appearance to an utterly, unbearably ugly one. All of his loss was conferred on him by the loathsome girl in front of him!
The hatred of being disfigured was like the enmity of having one’s father killed, absolutely irreconcilable. If he didn’t kill this loathsome girl today, how could he, Li Aotian, still have the face to live on this earth?
Li Aotian’s style of action was like a storm, with speed fast as lightning. There wasn’t enough time for Su Luo to dodge, she slipped on the spot, and was thus able to avoid this grab of his.
At the same time, Su Luo’s heart was very shocked!
In the end, what was going on? Li Aotian wasn’t blown dead by the spirit ball, then fine, but his martial arts cultivation had actually advanced! Moreover, it didn’t just advance a little bit!
Just when Li Aotian was about to attack Su Luo once more in rage, the light shadow of a person noiselessly appeared at the cave entrance: “Stay your hand.”
“Nangong Liuyun?” Li Aotian’s hand immediately stopped in the blink of an eye, as he stared in astonishment at Nangong Liuyun.
His mind momentarily could not return to his senses.
Wasn’t he locked in the Joyous Conjugal Room with Yaoyao? How could he have appeared here by himself? Could it be that Yaoyao was also here?
Nangong Liuyun placed his hands behind his back as he stood up, his body appeared straight and tall, as well as relaxed. His expression was unkindly cool and indifferent, with his icy eyes coldly sweeping a glance at Li Aotian: “What are you doing?”
Having been swept by his meaningful gaze, Li Aotian instinctively cowered.
Before, for many years, Li Aotian had always lived underneath Nangong Liuyun’s prestige, so he had an instinctive reverence and deferment towards Nangong Liuyun.
, Nangong Liuyun didn’t have to take action. Him merely standing there indifferently was able to make Li Aotian’s heart grow cautious, afraid he would not be able to stop his killing move.
“How is it that you are here? What about Yaoyao? What did you do to her?” Li Aotian’s gaze was cold and strict, as he shouted with deep worry and hatred.
“What did this king do to her?” Nangong Liuyun calmly stood with his hands behind his back, smiling faintly with a raised eyebrow as he cast a sidelong glance at Li Aotian, “Why don’t you ask, what she did to this king?”
Suddenly, Li Aotian’s chest become obstructed, an unnatural expression flashing through his eyes.
He had already known earlier about the matter of the Joyous Conjugal Room, and had also advised against it. A man was not like a woman, even if a relationship had taken place, it would also be unable to tie him down. However, Yaoyao had insisted on using this method to force him to marry her, as her older brother, what could he have done?
Chapter 449 – Meeting one’s foe (1)
“In the end, where did you hide Yaoyao?” Li Aotian, in a flustered manner and discomfitingly, yelled loudly towards Nangong Liuyun.
The latter merely arrogantly stood there with his hands behind his back, unhurriedly cast him a glance and once again turned his face away.
In the end, Li Aotian suddenly got angry.
But Nangong Liuyun had accumulated prestige for a long time, the many years of prestige wasn’t something he wanted to ignore and could just ignore.
Li Aotian glared at him furiously, lifted his foot and immediately rushed inside. He searched everywhere once inside, but there wasn’t a trace of Li Yaoyao.
“Nangong Liuyun! Where’s Yaoyao!” That was the younger sister he doted on the most, he absolutely wouldn’t allow her to meet with a mishap!
Nangong Liuyun cast him an indifferent glance: “You ask this king, who will this king ask?”
“Wasn’t Yaoyao locked in the Joyous Conjugal Room together with you? How can you not know?” Li Aotian shouted at Nangong Liuyun in chagrin.
Nangong Liuyun however, calmly said: “This king indeed was locked in there, she may not necessarily be.”
Li Aotian’s heart was startled.
Worthy of being Nangong Liuyun, to actually see what’s wrong so quickly.
“No matter what, you must hand over Yaoyao!” Li Aotian furiously said.
“Li Aotian, your courage got a lot fatter.” Nangong Liuyun calmly said, while standing with his hands behind his back. His phoenix eyes narrowed, as he gave a smile that was not quite one towards Li Aotian.
His gaze was as light as a feather, with a tone that was soft as a dandelion dancing in the breeze. So soft and relaxed, but full of a murderous aura.
Li Aotian immediately stared blankly as an alarmed color then appeared in his eyes.
From very young, he had known Nangong Liuyun. He had unsurpassed talent, then fine, but it so happened that his willpower was even more astonishing. Therefore, his strength had always far surpassed everyone else.
Frankly, Li Aotian had really been beaten into fearing Nangong Liuyun, therefore, whenever he faced Nangong Liuyun, Li Aotian would inevitably lack some confidence.
Now, Su Luo stood by Nangong Liuyun’s side, silently cursing unceasingly in her heart.
Nangong Liuyun could really act.
Obviously, at this time, he was so weak that he nearly lost consciousness, but only relying on a few sentences, he was able to deter Li Aotian.
Nangong Liuyun once again coldly smiled: “If you insist on finding Li Yaoyao, then return to your Li Manor, you won’t find her here.”
Having heard what was said, Li Aotian immediately let go of his worry.
Even though Nangong Liuyun didn’t explicitly say it, but his meaning was very obvious, Yaoyao was safe.
Li Aotian released a breath in relief, only now did he coldly look towards Su Luo: “Loathsome girl! Give me your life!”
Li Aotian gave a loud shout and was just about to rush towards Su Luo.
But Nangong Liuyun merely lifted his foot to stand in front of Su Luo.
If it was an ordinary person, assuredly, he would cry to the sky, rush to the ground and beg for forgiveness. But our His Highness Prince Jin took the opposite path to walk on.
One could only see him coldly stare fixedly at Li Aotian: “You want to die, then this king will help you accomplish this. But don’t blame this king for not remembering the two families’ friendship.”
“Nangong Liuyun, don’t you interfere in these muddled waters!” Li Aotian aggressively yelled towards him.
Nangong Liuyun shot him an indifferent glance, and arrogantly raised an eyebrow: “This king’s princess, if this king doesn’t protect her, then who am I to protect?”
“You——” Li Aotian was furious and anxious at the same time. He speechlessly glared at Nangong Liuyun and then very fiercely said: “Nangong Liuyun, this time, are you determined to interfere?”
Even though Nangong Liuyun and Yaoyao’s matter was empty with no fixed time set in the future, but as Li Yaoyao’s older brother, he didn’t want to be in a deadlock with Nangong Liuyun. He didn’t want to make an enemy of such an expert.
If he was to act, then Li Aotian would only lose.
Li Aotian very fiercely glared once at Su Luo: “Fine,, this time, taking Nangong Liuyun into consideration, then I’ll let you live an extra day!”
Leaving this sentence behind, Li Aotian, in a flash, became a white line and then a black dot, immediately fading away in the air.
Chapter 450 – Meeting one’s foe (2)
Nangong Liuyun’s pair of burning eyes stared fixedly at Li Aotian’s body, before his body weakly swayed a little.
Su Luo immediately went up to support him, and impatiently asked: “How are you? Still okay?”
Just now, in order to scare Li Aotian away, Nangong Liuyun had continuously hardened his body to appear as if he was never injured.
But Su Luo who stood by his side could clearly see, that under that cold and solemn expression, what kind of pain there was .
Nangong Liuyun faintly said a sentence: “Still able to hold up, let’s go in and talk.”
Su Luo nodded her head. It couldn’t be said for sure if Li Aotian was hidden in the surroundings.
She supported Nangong Liuyun to slowly enter the cave.
For a moment, neither spoke, the atmosphere around them was somewhat heavy.
Only after a long time did Su Luo force a smile to say: “How was it that Li Aotian was not blown dead by the spirit pinball?”
Nangong Liuyun had a forced smile as he looked at her, reaching out to rub her head.
“Forgot to tell you, when using the spirit pinball, actually, there is a little problem with the aftermath. For instance, there is a one in ten thousand possibility that it will allow the opponent to absorb the spirit force in the spirit pinball.”
Nangong Liuyun spread out his hands, and helplessly said: “That one in ten thousand chance was actually encountered by him.”
“Then, it can be said that Li Aotian had absorbed the spirit power in the spirit pinball?”
“It should be so. His strength is a little better than before, now, he should be seventh rank.” Nangong Liuyun said with a bitter smile.
“Seventh rank?” Su Luo could only feel the space between her eyebrows twitch.
What kind of evil had she attracted?
Before, she had wanted to take advantage of the situation to kill Li Aotian, but who would have thought that she would actually send him off into the clear sky, allowing him to break straight through the sixth rank barrier to reach the seventh rank in a whirlwind.
Now, on this uninhabited island, her own strength was lacking, and Nangong Liuyun was seriously wounded. At this point of time, it was quite obvious that Li Aotian’s martial arts was currently the most formidable.
He was not a fool. Before, Nangong Liuyun was able to scare him away, but it was hard to say whether he wouldn’t think about it and realize the truth before coming again.
Su Luo, somewhat depressed, patted her head.
The first time she used a spirit pinball, and she smashed it at a person who then absorbed the spirit power. Should it be said that her luck was extremely good or her luck was super, unequivocally bad?
“Should we still live here?” If they were to still live here as before, then it was tantamount to waiting for Li Aotian to think it through and to afterwards bring the fight to their doorway.
“If we leave here immediately, even if his head was stupid, then he would understand.” Nangong Liuyun smiled a little like the light wind and the soft earth, “Now, we can only gamble, betting that he wouldn’t realize within seven days.”
Difficult…Su Luo rested her chin on both hands and slowly shook her head.
Three days in a row passed dully without a ripple.
Finally, the fourth day.
Su Luo quietly secured Nangong Liuyun to sit down cross-legged, with both eyes closed tightly, he was immersed in restoration state. A dignified expression flashed through his eyes.
The exterior wounds on Nangong Liuyun’s body had already more or less healed completely. His internal injuries were also being methodically restored.
These last few days were the most critical time, if he was disturbed by anyone, the consequences would be too horrible to contemplate.
Li Aotian’s figure appeared in Su Luo’s mind.
Since he appeared a few days ago, afterwards, this person seemed to have completely disappeared.
Normally, it could be said that Su Luo should be happy, however in her heart, there was a faint. not-so-good premonition.
Her premonition had always been accurate.
Or perhaps, it could be said that her perception for danger was much stronger than the overwhelming majority of people.
Just when Su Luo was a touch concerned, the heavy sound of footsteps could be heard coming from outside.
The hands at Su Luo’s side clenched tightly, a worried expression flashed across her face as her gaze landed on Nangong Liuyun’s body.
At this moment, there was a faint mist hovering over his body, he was wholeheartedly immersed in cultivation and was totally unaware of the disturbance in the outside world.
