Chapter 487 – Leaving the region of flames (4)
Nangong Liuyun slanted his head, his sword-like eyebrows lifted slightly, as he smilingly looked at Su Luo: “Successful?”
“Yeah!” Su Luo burst open into a shallow, faint, smiling expression . Unfolding into a lazy stretch, she then happily said: “Heaven will not disappoint a person who tries . I finally reached the fourth rank, really not easy ah . ”
Nangong Liuyun pinched the tip of her nose, between laughter and tears: “If you consider this not easy, then won’t others be ashamed and unable to show their faces? Recall that you have just cultivated for a few days . ”
Su Luo blinked her eyes, grumbling about it: “What few days, it will soon be five months . ”
“Soon to be five months? You call this a long time?” The corner of Nangong Liuyun’s mouth perked up into a devilishly flattering smile, right now, he looked demonic yet with a sinister charm: “In less than five months, from lacking to having, from first rank to fourth rank, this speed of yours, what kind of speed is it? Since the beginning of recorded history on this continent, there was never such a speed being recorded . ”
Immediately, Su Luo’s pair of eyes shone, bright and clear with a lively expression: “Really? Then doesn’t that mean I’m the first since the beginning of recorded history on this continent?”
“Yes!” Nangong Liuyun’s naturally beautiful, devilishly handsome face had a deep pair of eyes that were like pure crystal, sparkling and translucent . He said with certainty: “The list, with regards to cultivation speed, is indeed so . ”
Su Luo was immediately very pleased . The corner of her mouth pointed up high, her sharp scissors-like, limpid, bright eyes smiled until they were curved .
Before, she was still complaining about her cultivation speed being too slow, her strength being too weak . It was to the extent that she was always fleeing from being chased by people who wanted to kill her . She simply hadn’t lived even a few peaceful days .
But hearing Nangong Liuyun’s explanation, her heart immediately became more peaceful .
Speaking of which, her cultivation speed really was very fast . If it was known, Su Xi, who was commonly referred to as a little genius but at fourteen years old was also merely a fourth rank, then what about for Su Luo?
Before, she was still showing off in front of Su Luo, but now, Su Luo was totally capable of stepping on her, having her underneath her feet .
Nangong Liuyun’s features were picturesque, as he smilingly looked at her: “If you are still able to maintain this speed afterwards, then reaching eight rank within two years is also not impossible . ”
“I’ll hold you to your words . ” Su Luo smiled without holding back her complacent expression .
Suddenly, Su Luo’s complexion changed slightly, as she stared with amazement at the stone in her hand . Then, she looked at Nangong Liuyun with astonishment, silently inquiring .
Nangong Liuyun’s gaze landed on that piece of stone, suddenly, he was also somewhat speechless .
“This…what is going on?” Su Luo pointed to that mystical stone and asked in wonder .
Just a moment ago, it was still slowly absorbing the heat in Su Luo’s surroundings, but after Su Luo was promoted to the fourth rank, this stone’s appetite seemed to have all at once increased by a lot .
If you were to say that before, the stone was delicately swallowing and slowly chewing, but now, it was devouring everything ravenously .
This stone seemed to have a mystical magic power, able to get the flames to automatically rush towards it .
After which these flames would be swallowed by it at a speed that the naked eye could see, immediately disappearing, not to be seen again .
“Have you felt that this cave of flames has changed somewhat?” Su Luo doubtfully asked .
Why was it that she felt that the temperature in this cave of flames was slightly lower than when she first entered? Was the reason because of her promotion in strength?
Unexpectedly, Nangong Liuyun’s pair of icy, deep, black eyes indicated that he agreed: “Even you are able to detect it, it has clearly lowered to the point of being obvious . ”
“Are you implying that my strength is very lacking?” Su Luo gave him a cold glare, but once again, she restrained her eyes to seriously say: “Is it really probable that this stone had absorbed it all?”
Nangong Liuyun smiled somewhat enigmatically . His pretty eyelashes were jet-black, thick, and also slightly curled upwards . His lips were like red powder, contrasting against his skin and making him even more bewitchingly beautiful .
One could only see him laughingly pat Su Luo’s head: “Girl with good luck, go steal some happiness . ”
