Chapter 102 – In enemy hands (3)
Others would not know, but she knew. The lowest level in the Tigerwolf Regiment was at the third rank. Their average strength was at fourth rank. With such a strong team entering the forest… … She hoped that Qin Ning had already killed that slut and destroyed both the corpse and the evidence. Otherwise, this affair would become problematic.
Even more infuriating to the Jade Lake fairy was that this Tigerwolf Regiment had been secretly trained with painstaking effort, personally by Nangong Liuyun. These were his secret troops and one of his greatest trump cards. She had never thought that Nangong Liuyun, because of Su Luo, would reveal these troops.
This spoke volumes of Su Luo’s position in his heart!
This discovery, almost made Jade Lake fairy grind her teeth to dust!
“Third senior brother, is there a need to launch such a large campaign? Maybe Qin Ning has already found Su Luo. After all, the Tigerwolf Regiment is formed from five years of your blood and sweat.” Jade Lake fairy had a perfect smile, similar to a warm summer breeze.
Nangong Liuyun’s pair of beautiful eyes were bright as stars, his face pallid yet resolute: “If the Tigerwolf Regiment can be exchanged for Luo girl’s safety. Don’t mention one troop, even if it’s all of them in the regiment, why would I be unwilling to part with them?”
As long as his Luo girl was safe, regardless of the price, he would pay it.
A malicious expression flashed across Jade Lake fairy’s eyes. She was only nearly able to continue maintaining her gently smiling face, except for a slight stiffening at the corners of her lips.
However, Nangong Liuyun was no longer looking at her, he had closed his eyes and started to heal his injuries through cultivation.
He had to quickly recover his strength, his Luo girl was still waiting for him.
Speaking of Su Luo’s side, she still did not know that Nangong Liuyun had already sent men out searching for her.
Being escorted by Er Huang like a criminal, Su Luo did her best to stall for time enroute, but eventually, she still needed to face the inevitable conclusion.
Seeing that they would be reaching that thousand-year-old ancient tree in another hour, Su Luo’s heart grew extremely anxious.
She guessed that the Jade Lake fairy would be at that thousand-year-old ancient tree. If Su Luo waited until she was in the Jade Lake fairy’s grasp, the situation she faced would be far different from the present. By then, it would be even harder to escape.
Su Luo’s heart was secretly worried.
Suddenly, just past the mountain peak, Er Huang’s footsteps stopped.
Her eyes coldly gazed at Su Luo, sneering: “Damnable girl, with your eyes circling around, still thinking to escape?”
Su Luo smiled sweetly and bluntly replied: “Haven’t you heard it before? Fugitives who don’t want to run aren’t good fugitives.”
“Oh? Then you must be really disappointed.” Er Huang raised the back of her blade and gestured at herself.
“What are you going to do?” Su Luo’s heart had a faint sense of dread.
“You’re not thinking about alarming everyone by shouting when we are near the camp, with the notion of attracting his highness Prince Jin’s attention, right? Say, how can I possibly give you such a chance?” Er Huang laughed treacherously. “So Miss Su, I will just have to work a little harder and carry you back.”
“Hey, I’m very heavy!” Su Luo panicked.
“No problem, I can carry you.” Er Huang laughed shadily with a measuring look.
With her words barely finished, Er Huang struck without warning towards the back of Su Luo’s neck with the blunt side of her blade.
If she were to be knocked out, she would really become fish meat on the chopping board, to be taken advantage of. Su Luo started to panic in her anxiety, but she could not come up with any solution.
Presently, both her hands were bound by a red rope made of an unknown material, with the slightest movement causing it to constrict even tighter. By now, it had already cut into her flesh. If she moved again, it would probably slice off her hand.
Extreme anxiety filled Su Luo’s heart, yet there was nothing she could do.
However, the goddess of fortune had always stood on Su Luo’s side.
Even though she let Su Luo experience numerous catastrophes, even being hunted down by countless people, she would always deliver a pleasant surprise at the very last moment. Just like right now.
