Chapter 634 – Treasure Storage Pavilion (8)
Nangong Liuyun cast a cynical glance at him, pulled Su Luo along and just left.
“Your Highness——” Nangong Yu called Nangong Liuyun to a stop, pointing to Su Luo and said: “Miss Su must leave behind two spirit treasures, her credit wasn’t enough.”
Su Luo nodded, her credit was indeed not enough.
Nangong Liuyun however, indifferently snorted, only leaving Nangong Yu with a decisive view of his back: “This king has not selected anything.”
The implication, naturally, was to transfer his credit to Su Luo.
“Don’t you feel that you have lost out?” Su Luo looked up, her clear eyes reflected that matchless-under-the-heavens, handsome face of Nangong Liuyun’s.
Clearly, Nangong Yu had deliberately raised the price, obviously, they could have haggled over the price.
Nangong Liuyun was amused as he pinched the tip of her nose: “Being too insatiable is very bad.”
“Where am I being insatiable?” She simply didn’t want to suffer a loss.
Nangong Liuyun secretly sighed again: “You, this girl, the things in the most valuable treasure pavilion are certainly not something you want to take away, then can carry away.”
“You mean that Nangong Yu deliberately raised the price, making it difficult for me to retreat and avoid defeat?”
“You are actually not stupid.” Nangong Liuyun smilingly looked at her, his eyes were full of a pampering and spoiling expression.
Su Luo frowned slightly.
When Nangong Liuyun came out, he simply didn’t choose any spirit treasure. Perhaps, he had already anticipated from the start that Nangong Yu would demand an exorbitant price, like a lion with its mouth wide open?
Perhaps…… even forcing Emperor Jin to open the Royal Treasure storage pavilion was something he had also planned for from the beginning?
If it was like this, then Nangong Liuyun’s shrewdness was truly too deep. If you chose to be his enemy, how painfully difficult a matter would that be?
“Take good care of this spirit pinball, at a critical time, it can protect your life.” Nangong Liuyun especially pointed to the spirit pinball, soon after, he rubbed her head and exclaimed: “You, this girl, you have offended too many people.”
Furthermore, each and every one of them were stronger than her, it really made him worry endlessly.
“You already knew from the beginning, right?” Su Luo still finally asked, “You forced Emperor Jing to open the Treasure Storage pavilion, precisely to let me get this spirit pinball?”
Nangong Liuyun knew that she was a space mage, therefore, when they entered the Treasure Storage pavilion, he had given her a gentle push, pushing her into that room.
Recalling the things from before, Su Luo couldn’t help but to guess this. Moreover, the more she thought about it, the more she felt it was correct.
The corner of Nangong Liuyun’s mouth perked up into a demonically charming expression: “A girl that is too clever isn’t cute.”
“This Miss doesn’t take the cute route.” Su Luo rolled her eyes in annoyance.
Although he didn’t directly reply to her question, he indirectly gave her an answer.
“Also, only you, would defraud your own family to give me this advantage.”
“As long as you like it, then it’s fine.” Nangong Liuyun smilingly looked at her, the corner of his mouth hooked into a devilishly charming smile that could entice all living things.
Two people, talking and laughing, walked away from the imperial palace hand in hand.
After they had left, Nangong Yu put on a brave face to give the news to Emperor Jing.
“What did you say?!” Emperor Jing, who originally had his head drooping down, depressed, immediately jumped a meter high. He grabbed Nangong Yu’s collar: “Say that again to I, your daddy!”
Because of extreme anger, Emperor Jing even cursed vulgarly.
“That loathsome girl……entered the most valuable treasure pavilion……and took, took away, three spirit, spirit treasures……” Nangong Yu’s head hung low as he nervously spoke.
“Didn’t I order you to seize this opportunity to kill her? You moron! How could you do something so stupid! You still allowed her to take away three spirit treasures and withdraw safely!” Emperor Jing nearly went insane from rage!
“In the end, how did she safely enter the most valuable treasure pavilion and take away those spirit treasures? And then safely leave?”
Regarding this question from Emperor Jing, Nangong Yu was also quite suspicious: “Could it be that……that loathsome girl is……a space mage?”
Chapter 635 – Treasure Storage Pavilion (9)
There was only this kind of explanation.
It couldn’t help but be said that Nangong Yu, you hit upon the truth.
However, Emperor Jing clearly didn’t believe it.
“Utter rubbish!” Emperor Jing angrily rebuked: “If she really was a space mage, how could she have concealed it up until now? Su Zian would have already made it known loudly to all under the heavens like a cicada!”
A space mage, how distinguished was one? If they, the court, were informed, then the entire Su Manor would not be able to run away from the riches and honor.
“Then……” Nangong Yu was puzzled.
“Second child, it must be him!” Emperor Jing angrily roared, “It must be second child’s sinister plot!”
“What should we do now?”
Emperor Jing heavily slapped the table: “Dispatch people to secretly monitor that loathsome girl, find an opportunity to make her——”
Emperor Jing made a slicing off gesture.
Nangong Yu accepted the order and departed.
At this moment, it seemed as if Emperor Jing had finished venting his anger, his body slumping onto the red sandalwood chair behind him.
If it wasn’t for the Jade Lake’s Li family pressuring him so tightly, he, in fact also didn’t want to do that to Su Luo.
After all, the news reported to him regarding her, she at such a young age was already a fourth rank. Moreover, she had exceed the young talented Su Qing and force her to that stage.
This was a talent ah, what Eastern Ling lacked the most, were talented people.
However——The Jade Lake’s Li family truly pressured him too tightly, he really hadn’t expected, that the Li family would even threaten the four nations battle competition over this matter of connection by marriage.
If the Jade Lake’s Li family withdrew from the four nations battle competition, then Eastern Ling would certainly lose. Furthermore, Eastern Ling would be defeated miserably!
No, he absolutely wouldn’t allow this kind of thing to happen during his rule. Therefore, Nangong Liuyun, this time, most certainly will marry Li Yaoyao.
Emperor Jing’s heart was set on this, no matter what methods he must use, he must make Nangong Liuyun and Li Yaoyao into a couple. He wouldn’t even mind using what he hated the most, that of the rice having been cooked (1)
Emperor Jing had this kind of secretive and devious plan to break up Nangong Liuyun and Su Luo.
The Jade Lake’s Li Family also hadn’t stopped for a rest.
Since last time, after the battle between the two sisters from Su Manor, the capital entered a tranquil state.
Rather, this day, suddenly, an explosive piece of news was passed along.
The Jade Lake’s fairy had come to the Imperial Capital!
This news was like a stone dropped into a tranquil, mirror-like lake. Immediately, all the people in the entire imperial capital flared up.
How great was the Jade Lake’s fairy ah!
That was the Jade Lake’s Li family’s most distinguished little princess!
Furthermore, she was gifted since childhood with extraordinary martial arts. Even more important was that beautiful appearance of hers which was matchless under the heavens. That exceedingly refined temperament…… She was simply like a fairy from the ninth layer of heaven, above all the common people!
Momentarily, everyone in the imperial capital spread the news, and the news spread continuously, raising the Jade Lake’s fairy to the level of a myth.
Didn’t know if there was also someone adding fuel to the fire. Unexpectedly, there was a rumor that said that the Jade Lake’s fairy and His Highness Prince Jin had already been engaged since long ago.
Once this news spread, immediately, the fervent atmosphere once again was pushed up like the morning tide.
His Highness Prince Jin, the Jade Lake’s fairy.
One was unsurpassed in martial arts, the other was gifted.
One was matchless handsome, the other was devastatingly beautiful.
One was unyielding and noble, the other was pure and cold like a lotus.
Whether it was talent, appearance or temperament, both of them were the most outstanding among the younger generation.
Moreover, they were also childhood sweethearts, growing up together as brother and sister since childhood under the same teacher!
Following the rounds of information erupting, the imperial capital was lifted by bursts of frenzy.
Everyone was saying that His Highness Prince Jin and the Jade Lake’s fairy were a match made in heaven. There were none who were more well-suited than them.
Now, it seemed as if everyone had forgotten about Su Luo.
Everyone was fervently talking about His Highness Prince Jin and the Jade Lake’s fairy. They were discussing how well-matched they were, what an ideal couple they were, how they were a match made in heaven……As if they were witnesses that had given evidence to this.
1) The rice having been cooked: Otherwise known as getting pregnant, a plot for a shotgun marriage.
