Chapter 990 – Near Death (1)
Of course, in the instant when he threw her out, he used his last remaining strength to wrap a protective layer around her so that she would not be injured when she fell.
Lightning spread across Nangong Liuyun's entire body.
The already heavily injured Nangong Liuyun could no longer withstand the blow and, with a stagger, actually fell and rolled down the cliff.
Nangong Liuyun pried open his eyes with great difficulty.
Now, the howling winds and violent storm had long since stopped.
The dense dark clouds had also dispersed.
Overhead, were clear skies for thousands of miles. Below, were the battle-devastated surroundings.
"Luo Luo!" Nangong Liuyun anxiously sat up.
Because he rose too fast, the movement tore at his wounds, and Nangong Liuyun once again spit out a mouthful of blood.
This battle with Fairy Yan Xia, was the most intense battle in his life.
Adding on the collateral damage from that lightning ball at the end, Nangong Liuyun's heavy internal injuries multiplied.
But, his face showed no trace of being severely injured.
Nangong Liuyun held his chest and impatiently stood up, his gaze anxiously searching in all directions.
Although he threw her out, he had used up his remaining strength to protect her.
But his Luo Luo's body was so weak with such heavy injuries, even a mere breeze and the slight movement of a blade of grass would threaten her life.
Nangong Liuyun anxiously strode forward, however, with a slip of his foot, his already critically wounded body fell pitifully to the ground.
He carelessly wiped away the blood that had seeped out from the corner of his lips and hurriedly pushed himself up, looking around anxiously.
"Luo Luo! Luo Luo!"
Every time he shouted, he would always cough up a mouthful of blood.
But he completely paid no attention to it, walking as he shouted and shouting as he coughed.
Suddenly, he caught sight of a fragile white-colored silhouette in the distance.
She laid there motionless.
Her extremely beautiful features were stained with rainwater, and that deathly pale complexion had no trace of color.
Her eyes were tightly shut and her thin weak body seemed nearly transparent.
Nangong Liuyun's legs froze in place as if they were replaced with lead.
His throat grew tight and became dry.
Su Luo's finger moved a little.
Nangong Liuyun's eyes gleamed with a ray of hope.
That pair of legs which were rooted to the ground finally hurriedly walked over to Su Luo.
Stones scattered around, making the landscape rugged and uneven, yet Su Luo was lying upon a soft patch of grass.
Nangong Liuyun crouched before her, held her hand and nervously gazed at her.
Her face was ghastly pale as paper with a gossamer of breath, as if it would cut off in the next second…
At this moment, Nangong Liuyun could only feel great pain in his chest.
That touch of pain gradually grew more fierce, finally as strong as wine.
"Luo Luo——" Nangong Liuyun squeezed out an ugly smile. "Luo Luo, it's me. Wake up."
But his only response was Su Luo's inconsistent and disjointed breathing.
Nangong Liuyun's voice grew hoarse as he firmly held her hand tight: "Luo Luo… …"
Nangong Liuyun who have never been frantic, at this moment was shaken and confused about to lose his mind from fear.
Her breaths were very weak, very faint… almost indiscernible.
At this moment, Nangong Liuyun's eyes failed to live up to expectations and reddened. It hazed over with moisture.
"Luo Luo, sorry, I'm sorry… …" He tightly hugged her, burying his face in her shoulder and apologized continuously.
If he had not obstinately left, if he had not returned too late, then how would his Luo Luo have become like this?
Nangong Liuyun's suppressed sobs, involuntarily escaped intermittently.
But his reply, was Su Luo's tightly shut eyes and gradually cooling body.
Nangong Liuyun abruptly discovered her body's condition and his complexion turned pale as snow from fear.
"Luo Luo! Luo Luo! Quickly wake up, wake up!" Nangong Liuyun frenziedly shook her body.
