Chapter 790 – Dumbstruck (5)
As a result, Su Luo could only stiffly stand there and look at the doorstep that was only one step away .
“Come back . ” Rong Yun’s voice was hoarse, dark and overcast, as if from being drunk .
“Oh . ” Su Luo once again obediently ran back to his side .
“Kneel down . ” Rong Yun pointed to the floor .
Kneel down? Su Luo’s heart was immediately startled .
She, Su Luo, with regards to kneeling, would kneel to the ground for her parents, but she didn’t have a habit of casually kneeling before a person .
However, without waiting for Su Luo to ponder, Rong Yun’s eyes unprecedentedly exploded forth with coldness: “Kneel down!”
Such a frightening master… Su Luo’s heart trembled slightly .
“Oh . ” A puzzled Su Luo obediently kneeled towards the beauty in the painting .
Was this beauty somehow related to her? Otherwise, why would Master demand that she kneel?
Su Luo wanted to ask . However, when she made contact with Beautiful Teacher’s unprecedentedly strict and cold eyes, her heart became slightly alarmed .
Now was not a good time to ask questions .
Rong Yun’s pair of deep eyes penetrated deep into Su Luo’s heart . However, he withdrew his gaze after one glance and turned to look at that painting on the wall .
Time passed, bit by bit .
The night became deeper and deeper .
Unconsciously, Su Luo had kneeled there for more than an hour .
Su Luo continued to maintain the proper back straight kneeling position .
At this moment, her gaze moved back and forth between Beautiful Teacher and the beauty in the painting . Puzzlement flashed through her eyes .
What was wrong with Beautiful Teacher?
He made her kneel down but then ignored her . He only continuously stared fixedly at the painting on the wall .
She admitted that the beauty in the painting was an incomparable beauty under the heavens, but that was only a painting ah…
“Master…: Su Luo gave a yawn, which interrupted her speech .
She had kneeled until her legs were numb . In the end, what was Master thinking?
Only now did Rong Yun return to his senses .
It seemed as if he had just seen Su Luo, his eyes wrinkled slightly, then he said coldly: “Just such a short time and you cannot bear to kneel anymore?”
Su Luo secretly snorted in her heart .
It was not because she was unable to kneel anymore, but the point was that she did not know who she was kneeling to .
Wasn’t this just kneeling for a person for no reason?
It’s not as if she was Duan Yu (1)who would kneel and kowtow whenever he saw a beautiful, fairy-like older sister .
At last, Rong Yun sighed slightly: “You can get up . ”
“Oh . ” Su Luo obediently rose and even in passing, rubbed her knees that were somewhat numb .
“Accompany your teacher in drinking a cup of wine . ” Rong Yun’s voice was faint, carrying a trace of frustration and disappointment .
Su Luo’s senses were sharp . She could detect there was something different about Beautiful Teacher’s mood . She couldn’t help but take a quick glance again at that painting with the peerless beauty .
When all was said and done, who was this mysterious female?
Who could affect the immortal-like, without desire, not-seeking-anything Beautiful Teacher to this degree?
“Is she Master’s wife?” Su Luo’s mouth was faster than her brain and directly asked .
Only after the question left her mouth did she return to her senses . She had inadvertently asked the thoughts in her heart .
Hearing Su Luo’s words, Rong Yun’s expression was clearly jolted .
His sharp pitch-black eyes flashed with a complicated radiance . He stared at Su Luo without blinking .
Master’s eyes were too clear, too bright . As bright as a sharp blade directly piercing though a person’s heart .
So bright that nearly all the darkness would have no place in front of him and would vanish .
However, this time, his eyes had a peculiar expression .
“Say what you just said once more . ” Rong Yun indifferently lowered his head to pour himself some wine .
His slender white fingers held tightly to the jade bottle . The sake was poured into the amber cup . The faint fragrance of wine prevaded through the air in the small study .
Could it be that Teacher didn’t hear what she said clearly? Su Luo had some doubts from the bottom of her heart .
However, Teacher gave a command that she dared not defy . Therefore, Su Luo obediently repeated it once again: “She is Master’s wife . ”
That’s right, this time, Su Luo used a declaring tone .
Based on her exquisite sensitivity and having watched too many melodramatic tales in the modern times, Su Luo had faintly guessed a bit of this story .
