Chapter 113 – A bitter kiss (3)
She looked at Su Luo, and though her smile was broad and her voice clear as she spoke, she still chided Nangong Liuyun, “Third Senior Brother, Miss Su has yet to heal her injuries. It’s better to release her first, and let me take care of the rest.”
Nangong Liuyun’s star-like eyes held a touch of tenderness, elegant clarity and gentle kindness as he nodded and replied, “Yaoyao is right, it was this king who was too impatient.”
Yet, despite having said so, his hold on Su Luo’s hand did not loosen.
Jade Lake’s fairy was like a cold star that stared at those tight interwoven hands in front of her, a cold light flashed within her lovely eyes.
Her simple and neat complexion blossomed with a faint smile, “Oh right. Did Miss Su see any of my maids along the way?”
Su Luo looked at her with a smile full of undisguised mockery.
Jade Lake’s fairy tactic of making the first move, trying to trap her with this dilemma was very clever.
If she admitted that she had seen those maids, then, where were they now? Why did they not appear together with Su Luo?
If she did not admit to seeing them, then, when there was enough evidence to prove that she killed those maids; how would she be able to defend her stance?
Those few words were akin to placing Su Luo on a burning grill while Jade Lake’s fairy, this perpetuator of malicious acts, was simply speculating on the side as she leisurely sipped tea.
Su Luo’s heart grew vigilant. This Jade Lake’s fairy before her not only had extraordinary looks, her shrewdness in scheming was also by no means average. Otherwise, why would Nangong Liuyun trust her so or give her preferential treatment?
According to Cui Yu, the Jade Lake’s fairy had dispatched a total of four maids. The first three had all died in front of Su Luo. As for the last person, she should be the archer, but Su Luo didn’t know what had happened to her…
However, before Su Luo could respond.
Suddenly, a black-robed shadow appeared in front of Nangong Liuyun. He reverently and respectfully reported, “Reporting to Master, we found a suspect within the depression on a mountain not far from here. He was carrying this longbow.”
The black-robed killer stood with his eyes downcast. He deferentially offered the longbow to Nangong Liuyun with both hands .
This was an exquisitely handcrafted upper grade curved bow, the bow was glowing with a faint luster. One glance and you could tell that it was of considerable value.
“Detain him, and bring him here!” Nangong Liuyun’s entire body exuded a strong, imposing, august aura. The depth of his eyes broke out in rage, suffused with evil demonic radiance. His whole person had the appearance of a blood-thirsty monster, savagely cruel and cold. “
Once she saw the person lying down on the ground with eyes tightly shut, Su Luo’s eyes slightly creased.
This person turned out to be Liu Weiming.
How could it be him? Su Luo looked towards Jade Lake’s fairy with a smile that was not a smile. While the other side merely returned her look with a soft, sweet-tempered smiling expression.
It was as if she was saying that she, the Jade Lake’s fairy, was completely unaware of the situation regarding the matter of hunting her down, and it was not her doing.
“Dead?” Nangong Liuyun’s pair of icy eyes, the depths of which mesmerized people, radiated a dense killing intent.
“Yes, by the time we found him, he was already dead.” The black-robed person deferentially responded.
Nangong Liuyun stroked the longbow, probing for traces of the owner. He confirmed that the killer definitely used this bow to kill people, but….
“What could his motive have been to kill her?” Nangong Liuyun had a ferocious appearance, solemn and blood-thirsty.
Qin Ning, who had silently appeared by the Jade Lake fairy’s side, suddenly interjected. “This servant once heard Miss Liu say that they had chased Miss Su to kill her. Miss Su, was this true?”
Wasn’t this implying that only Su Luo would know the motive of why Liu Weiming would want to kill her?
