Chapter 74 – To subdue a foolish, adorable, pampered spirit (1)
Countless magical beasts rushed toward them in a violent surge with an imposing manner and a scathing murderous killing intent!
Two feet simply could not hope to outrun four-legged magical beasts; and even if they managed to outrun it also doesn’t necessarily mean they would come out unscathed .
The depths of Nangong Liuyun’s eyes contained a thick chill . He picked up Su Luo and whirled his body around, flying towards the nearby small wooden house on top of a tree .
Liu Ruohua and her companions imitated Nangong Liuyun one after another . Everyone of them used both their hands and feet together to quickly climb up the millennium old ancient trees . They tightly hugged the tree branches, hopping that they could escape this wave of magical beasts .
Jade Lake’s fairy turned her body around and looked toward Nangong Liuyun with a detached expression . She saw his silhouette carrying Su Luo in his arms . Her elegant and vibrantly beautiful eyes seem to be covered in a layer of watery mist, nobody understood the meaning hidden in the depth of her eyes that were as pitch-black as ink .
Her face lacked expression, and her red lips slightly opened into an arc, evoking a trace of an impassive smile . Her jade arms clenched at her thin, misty green, full-length, muslin gown that swept the floor as if it was leaving behind a trail of running water . Immediately, the light muslin danced in the breeze like fireworks that become faintly discernible before fading into nothingness .
The Jade Lake’s fairy whirled and immediately flew away in a graceful and naturally relaxed manner .
Around a dozen maidservants by her side were shrouded in icy-cold expressions as they coldly launched their gazes at Su Luo . Soon after, they too, followed her and flew away .
Su Luo’s thin eyebrows hesitantly knitted . Her intuition told her that this Jade Lake’s fairy smile was somewhat… mysterious?
Sure enough, just when she had flown a short distance away, numerous vultures suddenly surrounded them in a circle .
The vulture king seem to be fixated on the Jade Lake’s fairy, and each maneuver was filled with malicious ruthlessness .
The vulture king was a seventh ranked magical beast . It was also a flying type magical beast; compared to similarly ranked land type magical beast, it was even more difficult to handle .
At this time, Jade Lake’s fairy’s circumstances appeared to be extremely dangerous .
The vulture king was in hot pursuit of the Jade Lake’s fairy, as it followed tightly behind her . It seemed that the Jade Lake’s fairy was about to lose her life under the sharp claws of the vulture king——
Nangong Liuyun’s star shaped eyes held a complicated light, and his expression fluctuated between brightness and darkness, while being profoundly mysterious .
Suddenly, he hugged Su Luo to him, and left a passionate kiss on her bright and clean jade like forehead . His serious expression condensed into an austere stare directed toward Su Luo . “Be good . Just stay here and wait for me . Don’t go anywhere else . ”
Before the words completely left his mouth, and without waiting for Su Luo’s reply, his body had already elevated to midair . Fast as lightning, he rushed toward the place where the Jade Lake’s fairy was .
“Nangong Liuyun you keep on saying that you like me, but when all’s said and done, in your heart she is still more important . ”
The corner of Su Luo’s mouth rose into a faint and bitter laugh such that even she did not realize . A poignant and acerbic meaning was mixed within her bitter laughter .
Now Su Luo finally understood why the Jade Lake’s fairy was smiling before with such a hidden meaning .
This woman, her appearance and martial arts, were both viewed as at the top . In addition, her sophisticated shrewdness and scheming was also very deep . And on top of that her extraordinary family background… Gods were truly generous in their treatment of her, providing her with a gifted advantage .
As expected, this kind of talented person was really Nangong Liuyun’s perfect match . How could she, Su Luo, the unfavored, good-for-nothing, common woman from a Great General’s Manor be considered as something?
Su Luo coldly smiled, set aside all her negative mood and started to size up the small tree house .
The small tree house was very clean, roughly about ten square meters of space . Inside the tree house, besides the woven mat spread on the floor there was nothing else .
Su Luo motionlessly and quietly sat in the small tree house .
Perhaps it was because of the loneliness of a person being isolated in the way she was, but Su Luo’s thoughts had a strong feeling of disappointment .
In her previous life, she had been a renown assassin, who was the cause of the sentencing and the obliteration of numerous people . The vast majority of the people were just a mark to her .
But ever since having arrived in this world, she frequently felt as though she was being thwarted by the gods .
Here she was, only a member of the ordinary people . She could rely on her previous incarnation’s skills to defeat a first ranked Su Wan . However, if she were to genuinely battle it out with the second ranked Su Xi, she may not necessarily be able to win .
