Chapter 676 – Breaking through to advance a rank (1)
Su Luo felt his mood declining, and she rested her head on his shoulder. Her cheek was pressed against his chest that was beating vigorously and steadily, and she slowly said: “In addition, I am also very worried about you. If you don’t stabilize your state now, in the future, if you enter Recoil of Madness again, what’s to be done? If you don’t increase your cultivation speed now, when I am bullied by people in the future, what’s to be done when you are unable to avenge me?”
Su Luo used both the carrot-and-stick method while acting coquettishly, imploring. She used all kinds of reasoning simultaneously. When she said the last sentence, Nangong Liuyun finally wavered.
“Jade Lake’s Li family……I will have a good talk with Li Yaoyao.” Nangong Liuyun said with pauses gently stroking Su Luo’s soft hair while she was in his embrace.
“Ok.” Su Luo nodded her head obediently.
“Grandmaster Rong Yun’s side……I will hand it over to Leng Yan.” Nangong Liuyun tenderly rubbed the top of her head.
“Ok.” Su Luo, in his embrace, rubbed against him like a kitten.
“Father Emperor’s side, I will speak to him clearly.” The more Nangong Liuyun spoke, the more worried he was.
“Ok.” Su Luo tenderly nodded.
“If you have some problems, you can go seek Beichen.”
This night, Nangong Liuyun unprecedentedly chatted away, doing something completely contrary to his identity as His Highness Prince Jin.
He chattered on endlessly, briefing Su Luo about countless large and small matters, as if she were a child who was completely unable take care of herself.
And Su Luo continuously listened obediently, agreeing obediently, until she sunk into swamp-like darkness.
Seeing her sleeping face, beautiful like the summer flowers, Nangong Liuyun was reluctant to blow out the bedside candle. He just continuously lay on his side, motionlessly gazing at her, with tenderness and softness in his eyes.
Actually, since his sect found out he had risen two ranks within half a year, they had already sent people to ask him to return. Recently, they were becoming impatient and were about to use force.
He originally wanted to take Su Luo away with him, but recalling Li Yaoyao getting special treatment from his two senior brothers, Nangong Liuyun hesitated. When the time came for him to shut the door for secluded cultivation, leaving Luo Luo behind, what would she do?
Rather than staying with him at an unfamiliar sect, it would be better for her to stay in the imperial capital. Moreover, with Grandmaster Rong Yun there, it truly was another hopeful path.
With Leng Yan as a protective charm, indeed, no one truly dared to do anything to her.
But, at the thought that he wouldn’t be able to see her for a while, Nangong Liuyun felt a stifling panic in his chest……
Without him by her side, didn’t know whether or not little Luo Luo would be bullied by people, whether or not she would suffer grievances…… But Nangong Liuyun knew, an eagle’s chick must learn to soar on its own, Su Luo needed experience to be honed and then grow strong.
Now, letting go was the best time.
Ultimately, Nangong Liuyun still left.
“Miss, His Highness Prince Jin is about to leave, won’t you go to send him off?” Lu Luo saw Su Luo once again holding that book«The Continent’s History»and flipping through it. She was so anxious she directly stamped her feet.
Su Luo shook her head, her gaze remaining on the book.
“Miss, how can you be so calm and collected.” Lu Luo was even more anxious than Su Luo.
With His Highness Prince Jin gone, those bad characters would all again come running to create trouble. Who knows whether Miss would be able to hold on? Would the days once again return to the way they were before knowing His Highness
Su Luo didn’t even raise her head: “Your family’s Miss still hasn’t become so weak, you just relax one hundred percent of your heart.”
Su Luo didn’t dare go send Nangong Liuyun off, because she feared she couldn’t bear to part with him.
Now, being parted at this time would give her enough time to face her feelings squarely. This was also very good.
Time passed very quickly, in a flash, half a month had already passed.
In this period of time, Su Luo hadn’t stayed at the Su residence, rather, she went to Southern Mountains.
Chapter 677 – Breaking through to advance a rank (2)
Whatever Su Luo wanted to do, Su Zian had no ability to interfere because His Highness Prince Jin’s prestige could still be felt.
The spirit energy on Southern Mountains was rich and clean, naturally much better when compared to the capital.
Su Luo cultivating in this kind of environment was simply doing half the work and getting twice the result.
On this day, Su Luo was sitting at the summit cultivating, and she could faintly feel that she was about to break through. Her heart was delighted and was just about to take advantage of this spirit force to break through to the fifth rank.
But, just at this time, she felt something dangerous approaching.
She felt as if she was being secretly watched by a viper. That kind of scorching, malicious gaze that made one’s blood run cold.
Now, Su Luo was at a critical juncture in her cultivation, how could she tolerate being disturbed? If midway, something changed, the consequences were too horrible to contemplate.
As a result, Su Luo could only close her eyes tightly, pretending as if she felt nothing out of the ordinary and immersing herself only in cultivation.
The weeds that were trampled on by leather boots gave off rustling noises.
A large. tall and straight figure appeared in front of Su Luo.
One could only see a handsome face, with a proud expression. His every move had the arrogant mannerism of a young master from a powerful family.
He looked at Su Luo, his mouth hooked into an icily arrogant and malicious arc, and sneered: “ Loathsome girl, see where you can run to now!”
Li Aoqiong? The Jade Lake’s Li family? Him appearing here was absolutely not a good thing.
Su Luo secretly complained in her heart.
Did she, in a former incarnation, exterminate his entire family or dig up their ancestral tomb? Why was it that his entire family wouldn’t let her go, time and time again coming to provoke her?
Su Luo was bitterly cultivating and could not speak.
Li Aoqiong smiled sinisterly: “Loathsome girl, from the beginning, when you snatched away the happiness that should belong to Yaoyao, your fate was doomed to be hunted and killed by Li family. Don’t be upset, it’s merely a quick thing, very fast.”
Li Aoqiong neared Su Luo step by step, finally, he stood only two steps away from Su Luo.
Seeing Su Luo cultivating, Li Aoqiong’s mouth hooked into an immensely pleased, cold smile. This time, without Nangong Liuyun’s protection, see if this loathsome girl could still escape the hands of the Jade Lake’s Li family!
He extended his white, thin arm, grabbing towards Su Luo’s Lingtai.
If he could hit it, all of Su Luo’s martial arts would be wasted. Moreover, if the Lingtai was to be broken, she would never be able to cultivate again!
Just at this moment of imminent peril, suddenly, a cold light shot towards Li Aoqiong’s chest.
That cold light was fast as well as accurate, and Li Aoqiong had no choice but to quickly retreat a few steps, very dangerously avoiding the sneak attack.
“Who is it?!” Li Aoqiong’s entire body was on guard, revealing a cautious expression, both eyes looking all around.
“Li Aoqiong, your words truly sound like farts. Really losing all of Jade Lake’s Li family’s face!” A person’s figure landed from the top of an ancient tree. Shockingly, it turned out to be Beichen Ying.
From behind him, at the same time, Lan Xuan’s figure also appeared.
Lan Xuan, with hands crossed at his chest, and with not quite a smile, cast sidelong glances at Li Aoqiong, “The stately oldest son and Young Master of the Jade Lake’s Li family, the future master of Jade Lake Palace, would go back on his own words and slap himself in the face. Li Aoqiong, you are really interesting!”
Seeing these two figures, a haze flashed through Li Aoqiong’s eyes.
These two bastards who wouldn’t just die and go away!
With great difficulty, he had waited until Nangong Liuyun left, but the result was that these two sons of powerful families were guarding at Su Luo’s side. It was as if they were afraid she would be bullied, could this Su Luo, in a former life, had saved the world? So, this lifetime, she would be so lucky!
“Mind your own business, f*ck off.” Li Aoqiong’s gaze was as icy as the edge of a blade.
Beichen Ying laughed heartily, jumping out with both hands at his hips: “I won’t just f*ck off. I want to see the result of you being the butt of jokes from going back on your words. What are you going to do about it?”
Lan Xuan also laughed heartily.
