Chapter 457 – Meeting one’s foe (9)
With Li Aotian’s nature, he was merely temporarily deceived by her, when he became clear-headed, he would definitely find the clues in this ancient tree.
There wasn’t enough time for Su Luo to think further, and she climbed up the rock face of the sheer cliffs.
Aside from the waterway, she could only climb up this precipice, then she would have a chance to live.
Su Luo’s speed was extremely fast, her movements were also well-hidden, the places she jumped to was secretive and covered up. With her heart and soul, she rushed forward while Li Aotian unexpectedly hadn’t sensed her.
Li Aotian had set all his heart on top of that dead tree.
He concentrated his spirit powers onto the wood under his feet, the surrounding wind power pushed the floating wood to advance forward rapidly.
Very quickly, Li Aotian was about one hundred meters away from that dead tree.
One could see the corner of Li Aotian’s mouth hook into an ice-cold, malicious sneer. His eyes produced a sinister radiance.
“Loathsome girl! This time, let’s see where you will run to!” Li Aotian’s body sprung up, separated by a distance of one hundred meters, he directly leaped across the distance and onto that dead tree.
“Loathsome girl, roll out from there!” Li Aotian sent a heavy palm strike towards the dead tree!
In order to prevent the loathsome girl from escaping by diving into the water, he condensed almost all of his spirit power to surround that dead tree.
Now, this dead tree was trapped in an net he arranged, not even a housefly could fly out.
But what made Li Aotian despair was that after his palm smashed down, that yellow piece of skirt immediately become dust.
But he still couldn’t even see Su Luo’s shadow.
Li Aotian looked at the destroyed skirt that was now dust, and his heart immediately became infuriated!
He was once again played by Su Luo, that loathsome girl!
Evidently, that loathsome girl hadn’t been on this dead tree for a long time, but she had deliberately left pieces of her clothing behind to draw him here!
Having been repeatedly cheated and taken in, moreover, every time suffering the loss at identical places, Li Aotain was furious to the point of bursting into mad howls and cries. He was so angry, he smashed this dead tree into fine powder in just one strike.
The loathsome girl was not here, then where did she go?
As long as he thought of Su Luo, this loathsome girl, hidden on the side, watching him chase after the fake article, he would be so enraged as to want to kill someone.
Li Aotian aggressively rushed back to the path he came from.
Along the way, he seemed not to pay the slightest to his spirit power, using it extravagantly while traveling.
Under this kind of circumstances, Li Aotian very quickly found traces of the scent Su Luo left behind in that willow tree.
This place he really did walk by a moment ago, and also when he accelerated his pace was in this place.
As it turned out, at that time, that loathsome girl was actually hiding here, watching him doing something stupid. Very likely, that loathsome girl, at that moment, had even mocked him for being stupid.
Li Aotian was simply infuriated to an extreme degree.
He released his spirit force, followed Su Luo’s scent and unceasingly searched. Finally, following the road she walked past where she left behind some traces, tightly pursued behind her.
Speaking of Su Luo.
She had temporarily shaken off Li Aotian, but she still hadn’t relaxed a bit because she knew how much stronger Li Aotian was compared to her. At any time, he could catch up to her once more to kill her.
Su Luo hid her scent as much as possible as she traversed through the forest at high speeds.
She passed the fourth day unscathed.
The fifth day, half of the day had already passed.
Su Luo secretly sighed in her heart, wishing that the fifth and sixth day both would pass and arrive more quickly to the seventh day, that would be best.
Just thinking of this, suddenly, a trace of spirit force movement could be felt by Su Luo. Su Luo’s heart was delighted and her consciousness searched inside to see.
She saw the little divine dragon that had originally been lying on his back on top of the lawn, giving off little snoring sounds while sounds asleep, at this moment he had started to wake up after already being asleep for a long time.
One could only see his rotund little body sit up with his two little paws rubbing his drowsy, sleepy eyes. His little face was bewildered and innocent at the same time, with a blank and foolish appearance, simply so adorable she was about to burst.
Su Luo immediately stretched out her hands to fish him out and cheerfully poked his little head: “Hey, this time, you finally woke up. See if next time you would dare to pilfer food.”
Chapter 458 – Meeting one’s foe (10)
Recalling those several hundred pieces of crystal stones vanishing in a blink of an eye, Su Luo still felt her flesh in serious pain.
The little divine dragon, having been watched by Su Luo with such interest, somewhat bashfully covered his little face. Through the small cracks in his paws, he stealthily looked at Su Luo.
Su Luo laughingly pulled open his two little paws and poked at his head: “Having swallowed so many crystal stones, you ought to have made some progress, right?”
Once he heard this, the little divine dragon immediately became excited.
She only saw his furry little head fiercely nodding, two huge, black, slippery eyes were full of excitement, repeatedly: “Awoo,awoo——”So great, so awesome.
He was Su Luo’s contract beast, so there was no problem with them communicating mind to mind.
“In what way is it awesome?” Right now, Su Luo was in the midst of being chased all over the place while she fled in disarray. Once she heard the little divine dragon saying he was very awesome and difficult to deal with, she immediately became more spirited.
Oh God, wasn’t her luck rather too good? Over there, she was just being pursued to be killed till she was struggling at death’s door, while on this side, the little divine dragon coaxed her with a mouthful of words?
Su Luo was immersed in the boundless delusions of happiness.
The little divine dragon did not know his master was reveling in delusions, one could only see his little paws open up to count: “One, two, three, four, five——”
Seeing Su Luo ignoring him, he started again to count on the other paw: “One, two, three, four, five——”
Su Luo saw him counting again and again, still up able to go up further, she couldn’t help but to ask in surprise: “This ‘one, two, three, four, five’ what does it mean?”
Didn’t know why, but she had a faint, not-so-good premonition.
The little divine dragon had opened wide his large, limpid eyes that were innocent and adorable, as he looked at Su Luo perplexedly: “Awoooo——” Master, fifth rank, I’m a fifth rank——
“What?” Su Luo suddenly felt things in front of her eyes darken, and she nearly tumbled to the ground on the spot.
Before, she had thought the little divine dragon was really very difficult to deal with, she didn’t expect that he was only at fifth rank!
Su Luo was helpless as well as speechless, with a sad heart that ached in pain, she looked at the little divine dragon. She sighed and said ‘alas’ unceasingly.
It really was that the greater the hope, the greater the disappointment.
The little divine dragon didn’t know why, all of a sudden, Master’s mood became downcast. He somewhat anxiously and on tenterhooks tugged at her clothing.
Su Luo only smiled and rubbed his head: “Wanting to put all the pressure on your body is because your family’s owner is too useless. It has nothing to do with you.”
Su Luo somewhat helplessly sighed.
In terms of talent and opportunity, each point, she was not lacking compared to others, but her only weakness was time.
She arrived in this world too late, when she started, it was much later than others, to the extent that she must catch up to them at all cost.
A gap of ten years’ time, whereas now, she had crossed over for less than a few months.
Wanting her to cut down the gap of ten years in a short while was practically impossible.
However, she firmly believed that as long as she was given time, two years, no, only one year, her strength would absolutely be able to step on Li Aotian’s head.
The little divine dragon tugged at Su Luo’s clothing somewhat restlessly. He still hadn’t told Master about the latest skill he obtained…
Seeing his Master’s appearance of heaving deep sighs, the little divine dragon very smartly sat on the ground with his chin resting on both paws. His pair of monochrome, large, limpid, innocent eyes watched his little Master.
“Awoo——”There was a bad person!
Suddenly, the little divine dragon gave a light howling sound.
At the same time, Su Luo also felt danger approaching.
Li Aotian, this person whose influence still lingered on like a ghost, had actually once again caught up to her!
Su Luo picked up the little divine dragon and immediately turned around to run.
Now, the little divine dragon had a serious expression on his little face.
If you want to discuss danger, then his perceptiveness was still even stronger compared to Su Luo’s. Therefore, he could clearly sense the formidable strength of the enemy.
This time Li Aotian had already nearly gone berserk, his speed was several times faster than before.
