Chapter 49 – A strong and overbearing kiss (1)
When Su Luo and Nangong Liuyun decided on a meeting place, she obediently waited under a big tree on the outskirts of the town .
Not long after, clouds of dust rose, from far away, and one could hear the waves of sound coming from a beast’s roar .
Su Luo looked ahead .
She saw a strangely shaped horse dragging an exquisite carriage and galloping towards her in a fast, vigorous manner . In a blink of an eye, it had arrived .
The gorgeous, extravagant carriage had the curtains surrounding it were cut from real silk and inlaid with an obscure red plum blossoms embroidery .
The carriage was made from pear tree wood, and it’s two walls were engraved with golden flowers . The gilding was inlaid with jade that were formed into, exquisite carvings along with other cut gems . From the top of the carriage rows of pink tassels, that surrounded the gig, dangled and spun around in the wind creating a gorgeous atmosphere
What made more people turn around was the white horse .
This was not just any insignificant, ordinary horse .
If one looked closely, it could be seen that his body was covered in greenish-blue scales, yet its body was still like that of a horse . It looked like an unusual divine spirit horse . Furthermore it’s running speed was faster than a Thousand Li Blood-Perspiring Treasure-Horse* by several folds .
Almost in a blink of an eye, it stood quietly not moving in front of Su Luo .
The greenish-blue scales on its body gleamed . Nodding its head and shaking its tail, the horse raised both hooves and whinned toward the sky, giving off the appearance of a true divine spirit horse .
“Could this be a Dragon Scaled Horse?” Su Luo exclaimed in surprise .
These days she had been focused on studying the history and general knowledge of this continent, so she currently had some knowledge about common species .
“How could it not be?” Nangong Liuyun’s indulgent, devilish, charmingly-low voice carried a hint of laughter .
His sedan chair was obscured by a curtain of jade beads, but she could faintly see Nangong Liuyun gracefully reclined on the soft cushion inside the horse carriage . She could see that he was dressed entirely in a gorgeously flowing, soft robe made of golden silk threads It’s hem was curved like a warm cloud, twisting and turning, draped across the edge of the soft couch with layers folded upon layers . Even the flowing light dispelled all of the shadows and created a pretty flirtatious and compelling atmosphere .
Even for a moment, Su Luo found it hard to believe her own eyes .
According to her knowledge, the Dragon Scaled Horse was a type of demon beast, with extraordinary strength . Even the most ordinary, run of the mill Dragon Scaled Horse’s strength was equivalent to a person of fifth ranked martial artist .
What kind of strength was someone of a fifth rank? Take for example, Su Xi . This little genius was still only at the second rank . Su Jingyu is merely at the third rank, and, as for the grand general that protects the country, Su Zian, he had not even passed the fifth rank .
Just with this single small Dragon Scaled Horse, one could be compared to an important general that protects the country . Among all the powerful people, only Nangong Liuyun had this horse in the entire Eastern Ling Empire! Nobody else had one, ah .
Not only that, he did not raise this Dragon Scaled Horse as a battle companion but instead used it as he wished to draw a carriage .
Its use was extremely extravagant . He was indeed deserving of being called his legendary highness, Prince Jin .
“Come here . ” Nangong Liuyun beckoned with his slender, pale-white fingers from within the carriage . a hypnotic smile as intoxicating as blooming cherry blossoms in March, appeared on his face .
His words were unhurried and careless but held a kind of strength that couldn’t be ignored .
Su Luo, who wanted to test the speed of a Dragon Scaled Horse, voluntarily lifted the jade bead curtain and sat inside .
Compared to the carriage’s gorgeous extravagant exterior, the interior space was much more delicate, beautifully detailed, and refined .
The interior wall was inlaid with all kinds of gemstones:, amber, pearl, and high quality crystals that were priceless and unique . These gems emitted a faint luster, which generated the excess light that sweep away the haze and blur of any shadows .
“ Such an extravagant carriage room . You must have milked many people dry of their blood, sweat and tears . Am I right?” Su Luo while admiring the luxurious carriage interior, clicked her tongue in wonder .
Nangong Liuyun’s face was like the full moon of Mid-Autumn , pure white and sleekly smooth, were accentuated by a pair of beautiful eyes like resplendent obsidian jade . He muffled a light laugh, “ what about it? Are you going to play the part of the righteous heroine that comes to the aid of those suffering injustice?”
“I don’t have that much spare time . ” Su Luo waved her hands . She sat and, doing as she pleased, picked up the white jade teapot and gracefully poured herself a cup of fragrant tea . As she finished pouring she gave praise, “as expected of his highness, Prince Jin . you really know how to live life to the fullest . Sitting in the most ostentatious horse carriage; drinking the most concentrated and fragrant green tea . ”
“Also discovering the most obstinate woman . ” Nangong Liuyun’s lanky arms went fishing, and completely lacking any warning sign, Su Luo had already fallen into his embrace .
*Thousand Li Blood-Perspiring Treasure-Horse: A special type of normal horse raised with parasites in them . The horse runs very fast due to the parasite; they will also sweat blood around their neck thus, getting their name sake . (Chinese Li = ? of a mile)
