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 .
