Chapter 478 – A matter of life and death (5)
The hands at Nangong Liuyun’s sides tightened slightly, his complexion condensed into frost.
Li Aotian continued to sneer: “But now, she is dead! I simply killed her! What you owe her, you will never be able to pay her back!”
A woman he was deeply in love with, and the counterpart dearly loving him back, in order to save him, she paid with her life…Nangong Liuyun, today, a seed was planted in your heart, in the future, he was not worried that it would take root and germinate! A crazy, malicious sneer flashed through Li Aotian’s eye.
Nangong Liuyun, having heard what was said, his entire body immediately became motionless.
Luo girl, she…she…impossible!
Both of Nangong Liuyun’s eyes were scarlet, full of bloodshot veins, his long arms, with one grab, ferociously pinched Li Aotian’s neck, and he furiously roared: “You are speaking nonsense! If you continue to talk nonsense, believe it or not that this king will choke you to death! Simply choke you to death!”
Nangong Liuyun completely lost all of his rationality, with his very great strength, one could only hear the sound of coughing, and just like this, a bone in Li Aotian’s neck was broken.
“Speak! In the end, where is she!”
Li Aotian tenaciously bit his mouth, refusing to yield. Nangong Liuyun was so furious that with one throw, he cast him aside, tossing him heavily to the ground.
Li Aotian’s mouth hooked into a sinister smile, one could only see him use up his last strength to pull at that piece of cut off dragonstone.
Once the cut off dragonstone was dropped down, nobody would be able to turn around this hopeless situation. After going in, she would never be able to come out.
Nangong Liuyun’s gaze suddenly turned cold.
Could it be that Luo Luo was inside the cave of flames?!
The so-called, even a fool after pondering thousands of time could also be right once, Li Aotian, before death’s door, finally became smart for once.
He openly showed Nangong Liuyun his scheme, forcing Nangong Liuyun to make a choice.
Once the cut off dragonstone dropped, the die was cast, those that go in would never be able to come out.
However, whether Su Luo was inside or not, still alive or not, he would never tell.
He merely threw this quandary of questions back to Nangong Liuyun.
If he chose not to move, then probably he wouldn’t be able to see Su Luo for the rest of his life, or perhaps her skeletal remains.
Or if he chose to rush in, then he might never come out for the rest of his life, and he would be burned to death while alive inside.
The cut off dragonstone fell with lightning speed nearly in the blink of an eye——
Nangong Liuyun’s body immediately flew up, his speed was like the attack of thunder, swift and oppressively severe, as if the space between heaven and earth were all swaying.
He ruthlessly kicked his foot towards Li Aotian’s throat, and afterwards, he borrowed the power of momentum to shoot with flying speed into the cave of flames.
The cut off dragonstone had already descended to the lowest point.
One could only see Nangong Liuyun’s body stuck flat to the surface of the ground like a bowling ball sliding inside.
Just at the time when he slid inside——
“Thump——” The cut off dragonstone smashed into the ground, producing a violent hitting sound, lifting up the countless dust particles from the ground.
Nangong Liuyun avoided the danger.
As for Su Luo.
Previously, she was slapped in by one of Li Aotian’s palm strike. Su Luo’s originally seriously injured body finally could not bear it anymore and she directly passed out inside the cave.
The little divine dragon tightly followed behind and like a spring, plunged inside.
Seeing Su Luo collapsed on the ground and remain unconscious, immediately, he was extremely worried. Hurriedly, he went up to rub against his little master.
Originally, this little master would always accompany him to play. This time, she just lay there motionlessly, as if she would never wake up again.
As he looked at the little Master’s complexion become scarlet red, the skin on her body was about to burn, the little divine dragon’s heart was extremely anxious.
His pair of monochrome, clear and limpid huge eyes was puffy and filled with tears. His eyes were very red and spun around Su Luo in circles, his little tail trembling back and forth from worry.
Very quickly, he resolutely wiped away the tears in his swollen eyes, as he puffed out a ball of white mist, sending it to envelop Su Luo’s body.
The white mist contained a touch of chilliness, it was none other than frost that had yet to condense.
Chapter 479 – A matter of life and death (6)
If Su Luo was awake, very likely, she would be amazed again.
Could it be that the little divine dragon also had all the elemental attributes?
Just from what he had shown, he already had the fire, water and lightning attribute, now, added to it, was the ice attribute…worthy to be called mother earth’s most partial to and favorite darling. This kind of gifted talent was simply in defiance of the natural order.
But in the final analysis, the little divine dragon was merely a fifth rank and had just recently left the infant phase, his strength wasn’t that strong. Also, within this cave of flames, the temperature was still somewhat threatening to him, what’s even more was that he needed to divert some attention to protecting Su Luo.
Therefore, not long after, the little divine dragon was unable to hold on. He was hanging out his little pink tongue while panting for breath.
Really tired, from birth until now, he hadn’t been this tired. The little divine dragon’s pair of eyes was puffy and full of tears. With a pitiful and wretched expression, he went to rub against Su Luo.
Why was it that the little master still hadn’t woken up? His water supply was almost depleted…
He also couldn’t enter that mystical place, unable to drink the spring water to replenish his strength…What to do, what to do? The little divine dragon was so anxious that his tail shook back and forth. He ran around Su Luo in circles non-stop.
Right away, he saw his little master’s skin turning scarlet red again. The little divine dragon had no other way, no matter how parched he was, he still condensed out a trace of white, frosty mist to envelop the little master.
Just like this, while the little divine dragon was enduring the threat from the flames on the ground, at the same time, he was still puffing out the frosty air within his body to protect Su Luo. Very quickly, the originally moist-from-water, adorable little divine dragon started to wither, looking ill as he curled up into a little ball and lay on his stomach by Su Luo’s side, staring at her.
What to do….the little divine dragon’s consciousness was starting to become fuzzy, when suddenly, a noise came from the surroundings, as if something had fallen down.
However, very sleepy, really want to sleep…the little divine dragon gradually closed his eyes.
Speaking of Nangong Liuyun.
Like a shooting star, he flew in, his speed was so fast as to be astonishing.
He had just entered when Nangong Liuyun had a kind of bad premonition.
The temperature outside was already quite high, but the temperature inside was astonishing, it was more than ten times hotter than outside.
Now, there were boiling, raging flames all around, soaring to engulf everything, even Nangong Liuyun had a feeling of skin being peeled from flesh, let alone how Su Luo would feel.
Nangong Liuyun had a deeply worried expression, as he loudly yelled in all directions: “Luo Luo——Luo girl——Luo Luo——”
Each yell was louder than the one before, each yell was more worried than before.
If Luo girl really had fallen into the cave of flames, in such a long time, only heaven would know what could have happened…
Nangong Liuyun’s fist was clenched tightly, that kind of consequences, he simply didn’t even dare to think about.
All around, the flames soared to the sky, the fumes lingered on, resulting in low visibility. Nangong Liuyun shouted until his mouth and tongue were dry, yet still didn’t obtain any response.
His heart was somewhat complicated.
How much he wished that Li Aotian was just scheming against him, and how he hoped that Su girl was not inside this cave of flames.
Nangong Liuyun hadn’t walked out for more than a few steps, when suddenly, his foot kicked something. It had also gave a tiny ‘awoo, awoo’ barking sound and firmly tried to bite Nangong Liuyun’s calf.
Nangong Liuyun’s reaction was extremely fast, without waiting for it to bite down, he had already lifted it up.
“Little puppy?!” Nangong Liuyun’s expression immediately was overjoyed. He used a lot of strength to shake the little thing: “Quick, wake up, quickly wake up, where is your master?”
This was Luo girl’s spirit pet, since it was here, then Luo girl was certainly not far away.
The little divine dragon weakly half-squinted his eyes in concentration, his little paw pointed to the floor…
The pitiful little divine dragon, after Nangong Liuyun was done using him, was tossed aside, falling to the ground. The little thing miserably covered his little butt that was sore from the fall, shouting ‘awoo, awoo’ towards Nangong Liuyun’s back, its eyes were glistening with even more tears.
Where would Nangong Liuyun still have the time to attend to it?
Chapter 480 – A matter of life and death (7)
When with one glance, he saw Su Luo on the ground, his entire heart lifted up very high, and in this split second, he nearly suffocated.
“Luo Luo, Luo Luo!” Nangong Liuyun excitedly shook Su Luo, seeing that she wouldn’t wake up, Nangong Liuyun pressed both hands to her heavenly spirit acupuncture point on her head and poured a steady flow of spirit force into her body.
In a daze, Su Luo felt her own body become light as a feather, as if her soul had flown outside of her body.
She was walking inside a steel and cement-built modern city with high-rise apartment buildings everywhere. There were cars, public transportation, a tide of people forming congestions in extreme chaos.
On this cloudy road in the mountain, rose a dagger stabbing towards her chest.
“You really believed I liked you? In fact, for so many years, I was always just monitoring you.”
These bone-chilling words, that cold overcast sneer, was like a devil, repeating over and over again in her head.
So painful…heart ached, her body also ached.
All around was very hot, so hot she was about to shed a layer of skin and her breathing nearly stopped.
She felt her entire body was like being placed inside a stove, being roasted non-stop.
Suddenly, a gentle breath slowly flowed in, like a vast and deep clear spring, extending to her four limbs and hundreds of bones. It saturated the skin that was roasted dry.
Su Luo weakly opened her eyes halfway, the image that entered her eyes was Nangong Liuyun’s extremely handsome face.
“Awake? Do you have anywhere that is uncomfortable?” Su Luo opened up her throat but could not speak.
She fished out a cup of spring water from her space, slowly drank a mouthful, then Su Luo finally was considered having woken up.
When she was drinking, the little divine dragon sat in a kneeling posture in front of her. His pair of limpid eyes, full of misery, watched her with a feeling of having been aggrieved.
Su Luo immediately laughed in spite of herself, she didn’t draw more water and directly picked up the little divine dragon, tossing him into her space.
This place was too hot, look at him, the fur on his body would very quickly be burnt from being roasted. He looked simply too pitiful.
Seeing Nangong Liuyun’s forehead covered with a thin layer of perspiration, Su Luo fetched another cup of water and handed to him: “You should also drink.”
Nangong Liuyun nodded his head, his eyes betrayed his concern: “How do you feel, still feeling any pain?”
Su Luo nodded her head, then shook her head: “ For the time being, I can still bear it. I’m afraid as more time passes, I will not be able to hold on.”
The temperature in here, for her, was really too high.
Nangong Liuyun nodded his head.
Inside the cave of flames, even the color of the flames had changed.
Inside the valley of flames that was the color of red clouds, it was still considered normal.
But after entering the cave of flames, the deeper you went in, the deeper the color of the flames became. It gave people a faint feeling of burning pain, as if the skin was being frayed from the flesh.
His Luo girl was okay for the time being, but her wounds were too grave, very likely, she would not last long in this cave of flames.
Nangong Liuyun’s brows knotted, constantly thinking of a way out.
Su Luo didn’t know that the cut off dragonstone had already dropped, and pulled at Nangong Liuyun’s sleeves, slowly saying: “We should quickly get out, now, your cultivation has already been restored, just in time to help me get back at Li Aotian who bullied me.”
Humph, humph, these few days, she was chased after running all over the place, feeling like a dog that had fallen into water. She had desperately fled in all directions, now, the time had come for the reversal of the wheel of fortune, it was her turn to be tyrannical right back.
Nangong Liuyun helplessly breathed out a sigh: “If you are speaking of killing Li Aotian, actually, there is no need, because…he is already dead.”
In the beginning, he pinched his neck until it broke, afterwards, borrowing the force of momentum, he had kicked him again. He was already thoroughly dead long ago.
Nangong Liuyun looked at Su Luo with tenderness, gently comforting her by stroking her soft hair: “Girl, don’t be afraid, this king will definitely find a way out, to take you home, do you believe me?”
Immediately, Su Luo’s heart was startled…listening to the meaning within Nangong Liuyun’s words, somehow, they couldn’t go out?
