Chapter 490 – Leaving the region of flames (7)
“You are still hiding food.” Su Luo glared at him.
The little divine dragon shrank back, and again, from his own pocket, silently, slowly, reluctantly, and after hesitating for a long time, finally, this time, handed an intact, blue-colored crystal stone over to Su Luo.
Su Luo gave a sigh: “Forget it, first put it aside, wait until there isn’t enough, and I’ll find you to try to gather the rest.”
That reluctant-to-part-with little appearance, looking at it was really too pathetic, making her seem like a female bandit, it was truly annoying.
Su Luo recalled that previously, she had placed a lot of Amethyst Thorned Fishes into her space. These days, she and Nangong Liuyun ate a few, but there ought to still be a lot left over.
Su Luo checked once through and also added the one and a half pieces of blue-colored crystal stone. After counting it over and over again, she was still a few short. As a result, she once again lifted up the little miser in front of her by the ear.
The miserly little divine dragon, with an aggrieved expression, once again took out a few pieces from his pocket and gave them to Su Luo. Afterwards, he snorted twice and turned his head away with his little mouth pouting. His tail was sticking up, clearly, he was very peeved at Su Luo.
This little thing also started to have a temper, truly rare to see.
Su Luo could only smile and coaxe him, while rubbing the fur under his chin, she promised: “Okay, okay, within the next month, regardless of what crystal stone the Amethyst Crystal Fish spits out, all will be given to you. This will make up for it, right?”
Only now was the little divine dragon happy, excitedly shaking his tail, again rushing into Su Luo’s embrace, acting cute to rub against her.
Su Luo patted his little head and thought somewhat worriedly.
This little thing was obviously the dragon race’s most respected golden divine dragon, but was raised by her to resemble a puppy more and more. Wait until the little divine dragon’s father came to retrieve him, didn’t know if he would look for her to settle this debt.
But this was not the most worrying matter. The thing that made her most depressed was after she had gathered enough crystals to activate the formation. She then discovered that she was already so poor as to have nowhere to go.
Except for the Amethyst Crystal Fish that could spit out crystal stones like a hen laying eggs, Su Luo didn’t even have a red crystal stone in her hand. She was really so poor as to have empty ringing sounds in her pockets.
The pitiful her didn’t know, that within the next month in the future, the little divine dragon’s luck was full to bursting. The Amethyst Crystal Fish gave him a lot of face, all the crystal stones it spit out was high grade, frankly making Su Luo so jealous until her eyes were red. This was something that happened later.
After scraping together enough crystal stones, Su Luo handed everything over to Nangong Liuyun.
Nangong Liuyun extracted all the energy from the Amethyst Thorned Fishes and crystal stones and placed it in the middle of the formation.
Nangong Liuyun’s phoenix eyes were tightly closed, only his hands were forming hand seals at lightning speed. He formed many seals with his hands, each and every one of them was very complicated. These seals were like characters shooting around on top of the transparent protective layer.
Time passed, little by little.
Didn’t know how much time had passed, before Nangong Liuyun suddenly opened his pair of eyes. He grabbed Su Luo by the hand, bringing her to enter the golden coffin together.
Lying inside the golden coffin, the top, with a ‘thump’, closed. All around was pitch-black.
The space inside the golden coffin was not large,
two people lying inside was somewhat crowded. Nangong Liuyun easily turned and had Su Luo’s entire body rested on his body.
Su Luo’s head just happened to bump into his chest, and she could clearly hear Nangong Liuyun’s heartbeat.
Nangong Liuyun calmly said: “If we could be born under the same blanket and die in the same coffin, then it’s also pretty good.”
Su Luo’s words dampened the mood: “I want to live well, and keep living for a very long time.”
Nangong Liuyun pinched the tip of her nose, raising his sharp eyebrows with a ghost of a smile: “That way is even better, this king will stick to you for a very long time.”
Su Luo rolled her eyes at him.
Suddenly, a strong spirit force attacked towards their forehead. Su Luo felt a burst of dizziness and shook her head. Very quickly, she sunk into a swamp-like darkness.
Chapter 491 – Leaving the region of flames (8)
When Su Luo woke up again, she found herself lying in Nangong Liuyun’s embrace.
She opened her eyes, and the first things that entered her field of vision were blue skies and white clouds. The green grass with fresh and clean air, and there was no roasting temperature. Su Luo all at once sat up from being startled.
“Bang——” Su Luo suddenly sitting up without any warning, and Nangong Liuyun, who just so happened to be leaning over to wipe her face, purely by chance their heads knocked together.
“Ouch——” She covered her face and nose, the tip of her nose and her forehead was bumped, making them extremely sore.
Nangong Liuyun laughingly helped her massage her forehead. With deep eyes that were charming, gentle and alluring, he softly asked: “How is it, does it still hurt?”
When he was massaging it, he also poured in a cool, refreshing stream of spirit power. Su Luo’s burning pain from before immediately disappeared.
“It’s much better.” Su Luo patted her somewhat dizzy head, with her pair of eyes looking around: “Is this considered as us having gotten out?”
This area, she was very familiar with. At that time, she had been hit by Li Aotian until she spit out blood, and had run all the way towards the cave of flames. Along the entire way, she had been continuously slapped till she spit out blood, how could she ever forget this road.
It was just a short time ago. Things remained the same but people had changed. Li Aotian was already dead, whereas they had walked out alive from that cave of flames.
“What day is today?” Su Luo didn’t know how long she was unconscious.
Nangong Liuyun knew the meaning of her words and said: “Don’t worry, there are still two days until the competition.”
That was to say, she had been unconscious for a whole day and night?
She still remembered that Nangong Liuyun’s luxurious yacht, from the seacoast of the mainland to Amethyst Island, took an entire day and night. Afterwards, she had drifted blindly with the waves, floating for another day and night before arriving at this uninhibited island.
Now, they didn’t even have a wooden raft, perhaps they wouldn’t make it in time.
“Must you go and participate?” Nangong Liuyun gazed seriously at Su Luo. His handsome face was as though it had been carved with a knife, with beautiful eyes that was deep and mirror-like of a lake.
According to his idea, he would just send people to directly get rid of Su Qing and it would be settled. Why go to so much trouble?
Su Luo raised an eyebrow. She looked at him with a serene expression, her tone serious: “This is my first fight in front of the public, I must show up.”
If she hadn’t exposed her strength, then it was tolerable, but since her strength had already been exposed, then she might as well confidently show it off. So as to avoid those people still trampling on her like weeds.
“Since you are determined to do this, this king will naturally help you achieve your heart’s desires.” Nangong Liuyun smilingly looked at her and picked up a block of hollow wood in passing. Then, he pulled her along to walk in the direction of the beach.
Just this block of hollow wood? Su Luo raised her head to look at Nangong Liuyun in puzzlement.
Now, his fair, handsome face, with the bridge of his nose sticking up high, its outline seemed to have been carved by nature. The corners were distinct, making his handsomeness one that could not be produced locally, a bewitching beauty that made it nearly impossible for people to shift their gaze away.
Nangong Liuyun pulled her along, his body tall and straight. His speed was as fast as flying, and very quickly, they arrived at the edge of the beach.
He conveniently tossed that block of hollow wood, which was about half a meter long and one quarter of a meter wide, towards the sea.
“Are we not going to make a wooden raft?” Su Luo thought about it and still felt it was unsafe.
“Do you trust this king?” The corner of his eyes and the tip of his brow carried a smiling expression, as he earnestly looked at Su Luo.
“I trust you.” Su Luo’s pair of eyes was as black as a dot of lacquer, glistening and shining.
“Then just firmly believe to the end, this king will prove it for you to see. How correct the choice you made is.” Nangong Liuyun held onto her hand tightly, rose very quickly and shot towards that hollow wood that had already floated far away.
Very quickly, he brought Su Luo to land steadily on top of that hollow wood.
“Let’s go.” Nangong Liuyun gave a hearty laugh towards her. Pulling on her hand, the two of them stood on the hollow wood, with one in the front and the other in the back.
Following one command from Nangong Liuyun, that piece of hollow wood bearing the weight of two people suddenly seemed to have had a heavy duty motor installed on it, and very rapidly, flew forward.
