Chapter 674 – At the time when leaving (6)
When Su Luo returned to Su Manor, the sky’s colour had already turned dark. At this time, Su Xi was still kneeling over there, it would be a good guess that she will not be returning tonight.
Lu Luo, in high spirits, walked up to wait upon Su Luo.
Su Luo, seeing that she was all smiles as if from lots of happy news, couldn’t help but to ask curiously: “What happened to make you this happy?”
“Miss, now outside, this was spread everywhere. They are all saying that the Jade Lake’s fairy, in order to force you to submit, did not hesitate to even poison the Madam! Outside, it is being spread as if it has grown a nose and eyes. As if everyone had seen it with their own eyes.” Lu Luo was very happy.
The corner of Su Luo’s mouth hooked into an indifferent cold smile.
After Li Yaoyao had done such things and still wanted to escape unscathed? How could it be possible?
Even if she had the Jade Lake’s Li family backing, so what? Everyone must be responsible for the things they do themselves.
Now, this had only happened in Su Manor today, and in a blink of an eye, it had spread all over the streets. Everywhere was abuzz, who was controlling this behind the scenes? The first person Su Luo thought of was Nangong Liuyun.
Middle of the night.
The night was pitch-black like ink.
Su Luo’s petite body was absorbed by the darkness, her figure was nimble and fast, dashing towards the direction of Prince Jin’s Royal Manor.
Not a single guard in Su Manor noticed that Su Luo had already taken off.
A great number of guards surrounded Prince Jin’s Royal Manor, but all of them recognized Su Luo, therefore, no one stopped her.
Su Luo entered Prince Jin’s Royal Manor unimpeded and unhindered.
She stopped the steward to ask, and found out that Nangong Liuyun was in the bathhouse.
Su Luo didn’t go in and merely sat in his sleeping palace quarters to wait.
Not long after, Nangong Liuyun walked out dressed in a white night robe.
At this moment, his black as ink hair was draped loosely behind his head. His ivory-like skin, after bathing, shone with the luster of gems. He looked extremely enticing, simply a feast for the eyes.
Without waiting for Su Luo to react, Nangong Liuyun’s long sleeves swept up. When she looked again, she was already sitting on Nangong Liuyun’s lap.
Seeing Su Luo, Nangong Liuyun was clearly in a very good mood. His handsome face that would not smile or speak casually with others was full of smiles.
Those deep eyes that were glossy and shining from being moistened by the mist of the hot spring, now, were motionless as they stared fixedly at Su Luo. Those enchanting, cinnabar-colored lips hooked into a devilishly charming and roguishly enchanting smile: “This king was just about to go look for you and you just voluntarily delivered yourself to my door. You and this king’s heart must really be linked.”
Su Luo softly caressed his face, then tapped his nose: “You want to steal into a woman’s room at night?”
“Now, it’s reversed with you sneaking in, this king will reluctantly accept the invitation.” Nangong Liuyun’s warm arms carried Su Luo and headed directly towards the large bed.
Being tossed upon the large bed, Su Luo was in the posture of facing upwards, looking at Nangong Liuyun.
This bastard’s skin was indeed so beautiful as to be otherworldly.
On that matchless handsome face, there was a pair of black as ink eyes that was as deep as the ocean. It gave many people the feeling that it would lure them to sacrifice their life and breath. It was so deep that it could suck Su Luo’s entire person inside.
His mouth hooked into a devastatingly charming smile, that smile made Su Luo’s heart beat wildly with ba-thump sounds.
“Don’t come over.” Realizing he was about to do what he wanted, Su Luo rolled away and wanted to jump up.
But now, Nangong Liuyun had already pounced towards her like a hungry wolf.
Consequently, Su Luo’s nose very unfortunately bumped into his chest, sending out a violent sound of collision.
Nangong Liuyun gave voice to a stifled laugh, and with one roll, he lied on his back on the bed. Whereas Su Luo was now lying on her stomach on top of his chest.
Su Luo covered her nose, unhappily glaring at Nangong Liuyun: “How boorish!”
Nangong Liuyun stifled a laugh, with a bitter smile, helped her to massage her nose. That attitude was like coaxing a child: “Yes, yes, this king is wrong, next time, I promise to be as gentle as water.”
Chapter 675- At the time when leaving (7)
There was still a next time? Su Luo shot him a glare then pulled him up to sit properly: “I have something to ask you. Please be serious and vow to answer what I ask.”
Nangong Liyun forced a laugh as he touched his nose: “Okay, what do you want to ask?”
Su Luo carefully swept around his body once, then finally gazed directly into his eyes. With one hand against his chest, her complexion was unprecedentedly serious: “Nangong Liuyun, tell me the truth. During this half year, did you get promoted too quickly and that’s why your state is unstable?”
Before her words had dissipated, Su Luo could feel his heart suddenly jump, although his complexion stayed the same.
Fortunately, she had already placed her palm against his chest.
Nangong Liuyun licked his lower lip. He wanted to say something, but he was beaten by the quick-footed Su Luo: “If you are thinking of an excuse, then don’t bother saying it.”
“You, this girl.” Nangong held the hand she had placed on his chest and helplessly used his other hand to rub her head, “Who said such nonsense in front of you?”
“Whether or not it’s nonsense, you understand it the most clearly.” Su Luo’s forehead knit, as she stared at him solemnly and seriously.
Her overbearing attitude finally got Nangong Liyun to raise his hands in surrender.
Because he knew, she was serious.
“It’s Leng Yan, that charlatan, again!” Nangong Liuyun groaned gloomily with resentment flitting quickly through his eyes. These flashes of resentment were naturally directed at Apothecary Leng.
Regarding Nangong Liuyun being able to instantaneously guess it was Apothecary Leng, Su Luo didn’t feel it was strange. Because these few days, the person she had been in contact with the most was Apothecary Leng.
“Whether or not it was Apothecary Leng, who said it isn’t important. The important thing is, Nangong Liuyun, you must go into seclusion to cultivate. Furthermore, this matter must be done immediately!” Su Luo looked at him with a deadly earnest expression, not giving him a choice.
“It’s not urgent.” The corner of Nangong Liuyun’s mouth rose into a demonically charming smile.
“It really follows the saying the Emperor is not worried but the eunuch is.” Su Luo scoffed twice, “Can you show a little bit of care for your own body, please?”
Nangong Liuyun merely smiled but did not promise her.
Su Luo helplessly heaved a sigh: “I know you’re worried about me. You’re afraid that after you leave, there’ll be no one to protect me, and that the Li family will secretly send a killer after me, right?”
Nangong Liuyun remained silent as before, though his very black, sharp eyebrows knotted slightly.
His Highness Prince Jin, who was arrogant and aloof, had probably never been placed in this kind of awkward position before, right?
Su Luo’s fair fingers gently caressed his forehead, smoothing out his wrinkled brows. Looking at him, she said seriously, “Do you still remember the previous time of betting with Li Aoqiong on crystal stones? That time, he lost and promised me that within one year, the Li family won’t seek to kill me. ”
“Moreover, Apothecary Leng also promised me, he will recommend me to Grandmaster Rong Yun. For all you know, when you come back, I will have already become Grandmaster Rong Yun’s personal disciple.”
“Apothecary Leng said, Grandmaster Rong Yun has a cold and eccentric temperament, hard for ordinary people to get close to. Only by becoming his disciple, can I ask him to treat your illness.” Su Luo was always worried that during the full moon, Nangong would inevitably be visited by the disease in his leg.
Yet, Nangong Liuyun was resolute, “No, my sickness must be treated by you.”
“Willful.” Su Luo pinched his face in exasperation.
“I only want you to treat it.” Nangong Liuyun insisted childishly.
Su Luo was defeated quickly: “Okay, okay, I treat it, then I’ll treat it. But if it’s like this, I really have no choice but to pay respects to Grandmaster Rong Yun as his disciple. However, once I’ve paid respects to him as my teacher, the Jade Lake’s Li family won’t be able to threaten me anymore.”
“Uh.” Nangong Liuyun lightly snorted. Just thinking that the person protecting her would not be him, he felt his chest tighten, as if a large mountain was pressing down there.
