Chapter 778 – Last disciple of a master (7)
“In fact, I had known earlier that I am not your, Su Zian’s, daughter.”
“Originally, I was still tangled on how I could break away from Su Manor. I didn’t expect that you would actually wordlessly and silently act.”
“Frankly speaking, this action of yours, I really like. Because it lessened a lot of troublesome things for me.”
For every sentence Su Luo said, Su Zian’s face would darken a bit.
Until when Su Luo finished speaking, Su Zian’s face could be compared on equal terms to the darkness of night.
Su Luo stood up and smoothed out the non-existent wrinkles in her dress. Afterwards, she turned around and left.
It really was with one wave of the sleeves it dispersed, leaving without taking a bit of clouds.
The high officials and ministers with their gazes normally so high, including emperor Jing, all watched as Su Luo left.
Who would have imagined that the daughter of a concubine who was determined to be an idiot good-for-nothing, would mature to this degree in a short time frame of less than one year.
Everyone shook their heads for lack of better option.
After leaving the imperial palace, Su Luo exhaled out a deep breath.
Having been busy for so long, and concentrating at such a high degree that her mind was stretched taut. Now, it appeared that this matter had finally come to an end.
It was merely that…Su Luo could feel faintly that Fairy Yan Xia was not this simple.
In the future, they would certainly meet again.
“What are you thinking about?” Under the sunlight, an out-of-the-ordinary, handsome and bright youth lifted his hand to pat Su Luo on the shoulder.
When Su Luo turned around, she immediately saw Beichen Ying’s mouthful of pearly white teeth. That bright and cheerful smiling expression was like sunshine.
“Thinking about…where to stay tonight.” Su Luo spread out her hands.
She was expelled from the family by Su Zian, naturally, she could not go back to Su Manor.
Lan Xuan and Anye Ming came and circled around her. Lan Xuan was the first to speak: “How about stay at my place?”
Beichen Ying slanted a glance at him: “If you want to stay somewhere, it should be at my place.”
Lan Xuan was unconvinced and said: “That maid, I had taken in on Sister-in-Law’s behalf.”
“Are you talking about Lu Luo?” Su Luo frowned slightly.
After she heard she was expelled from Su Manor by Su Zian, her first worry was about Lu Luo.
This girl was faithful and devoted to her, how could Su Zian let her off easily?
“Little basket (1), this time, I need to give many thanks to you.” Su Luo said sincerely.
Lan Xuan, being so seriously thanked by her, was somewhat embarrassed at being thanked: “Sister-in-Law, you are being too much of a stranger, when Second Brother left, he especially warned us for Sister-in-law to not suffer even a bit of hardship.”
This Nangong Liuyun! Why was it that he left words to so many people!
However, recalling how arrogant and pampered he was, telling each and every one of these people, a sweet feeling bubbled up from Su Luo’s heart.
However the second day.
Before Su Luo could go look for Apothecary Leng, the latter had voluntarily come to call on her.
“Junior sister apprentice, you have stayed really calm.” Once he saw Su Luo, Apothecary Leng’s anti-social, rigid face unexpectedly perked up into a smile.
It could clearly be seen that he was in a very good mood.
“Aren’t we going to see the master three days later?” Su Luo’s face had a bewildered expression.
Apothecary glared at her in annoyance: “Your temper how is it that it’s neither fast nor slow? Do you know where Master lives?”
“Where?” Su Luo really didn’t know.
“Cloud Mist Peak!” Apothecary
Leng directly glared at her, “Where Cloud Mist Peak is, you ought to know, right!”
Su Luo was immediately struck dumb.
Cloud Mist Peak, that was the number one highest peak within the borders of Western Ling. The distance from the imperial capital in a horse carriage would require three days’ time.
Apothecary Leng almost rolled his eyes: “You didn’t think our teacher would live in the capital, right? How is this possible!”
Su Luo recalled the first time she saw Grandmaster Rong Yun.
That time, he easily and calmly walked down from the clouds as if walking down steps, as if the entire sky was within his control.
That’s right, this kind of him, how could he reside in a place like the bustling imperial capital?
After exchanging greetings with Beichen Ying and them, Su Luo then jumped up on the Dragon Scaled Horse, leaving together with Apothecary Leng.
1) Little basket refers to Lan Xuan. Because, when you take Lan Xuan’s name ‘Lan’ and add the Chinese ‘child’, you get Little basket… Same idea with Beichen Ying. Little Ying is translated as little shadows.
Chapter 779 – Cloud Mist Peak (1)
The mountain peak was very straight and precipitous, with steep rock faces and sheer cliffs, an average person would absolutely not be able to go up.
They left the horse at the foot of Cloud Mist Peak. Su Luo and Apothecary Leng, dressed lightly without baggage, directly flew up the precipice.
Worthy of being called Western Ling empire’s number one peak.
By a visual estimate, it was at least ten thousand meters or higher.
On top of that, the peak was precipitous and slippery without a foothold, there were several times when Su Luo narrowly fell down.
With Su Luo’s strength at the fifth rank, it was still very difficult to climb up Cloud Mist Peak. Clearly, normally, no one would go up to disturb Grandmaster Rong Yun.
Just merely this mountain peak, had already cut off the overwhelming majority of people seeking medical treatment and asking for medicine.
Finally, in the early morning of the second day, when the sun rose in the east above the sea and the morning lights pierced through the clouds, filling the sky with hues of dawn, Su Luo finally climbed to the peak.
So cold, she had just sucked in a breath when Su Luo felt her lungs nearly freeze.
Cloud Mist Peak was quite high above sea level, therefore, the mountaintop was covered in snow. It was bitterly cold and frozen all year round.
As far as the eye could see, it was a nice-looking white area.
The sky was white, the ground was white, even the green plants were all covered with a thick layer of white snow.
“Let’s go, Master lives just over there.” Apothecary Leng pointed up ahead, at that magnificently built manor.
The manor was located in an open area on the mountain peak. The area it covered was very huge, at one glance, you couldn’t see the end of it.
Apothecary Leng familiarly pushed open the door, while he walked inside, he also said to Su Luo at the same time: “Master has a natural disposition of liking tranquility. He dislikes being disturbed by other people, therefore, only Master and two chamberlains live here all year round.”
“When master teaches, he often teaches it only once.”
“Master doesn’t like people talking back and interrupting.”
While Su Luo was observing the surroundings, she also silently stored what Apothecary Leng was saying in her heart.
Soon afterwards, Apothecary Leng introduced Su Luo to the person in the study.
Grandmaster Rong Yun calmly sat on a circular red sandalwood chair, behind a long table with his back to Su Luo.
Before Apothecary Leng could finish speaking, Grandmaster Rong Yun had raised his right hand.
Immediately, Apothecary Leng became silent.
“You go out first.” A hint of coldness faintly penetrated through Grandmaster Rong Yun’s voice.
It seemed that Master’s mood today was not so good, Apothecary Leng looked at Su Luo with sympathy. Then, he obediently walked out and even quietly closed the thick wooden door behind him.
After Apothecary Leng left, there was a moment of silence in the study.
Grandmaster Rong Yun was dressed in a wide white brocade gown, a light headband binding up his soft, silky hair. His entire person gave off an enigmatic and cold noble aura.
Su Luo could not guess Grandmaster Rong Yun’s age, if she was to judge based on looks, he was just a bit older than Nangong Liuyun and nothing more.
Just when Su Luo was letting her imagination run wild, suddenly, Grandmaster Rong Yun turned his chair around.
His pair of meaningful deep clear eyes, were coldly staring at Su Luo. His sword-like eyebrows were pinched up, seeming to be displeased.
Su Luo was secretly puzzled in her heart, she should not have offended him anywhere, right?
Why would he be staring at her with such a disdainful gaze?
“Master being above, disciple pays her respects.”
Finished talking, Su Luo was just about to make her salutations.
However, Grandmaster Rong Yun frowned and raised his hands to prevent her from such action.
“This title, I dare not accept.” Grandmaster Rong Yun’s voice was ice-cold like frost, “I haven’t formally accepted you as my disciple.”
A thread of doubt and puzzlement flashed through Su Luo’s heart.
What did Grandmaster Rong Yun mean? Obviously, that very day in the throne room, he personally said he would accept her as his disciple. Why didn’t he acknowledge it now? Moreover, he treated her with a deliberate alienation……
According to Su Luo’s original temperament, how could she let other people admonish her while pointing at her nose?
However, facing this expert, Su Luo didn’t dare to be rash, he was worth her humbling her attitude: “Great Master……”
