Chapter 115 – Infuriated to the point of discarding all rational thoughts (1)

Nangong Liuyun’s pair of star-shaped eyes were as cold as ice. He shot a piercing, penetrating glance at the Jade Lake’s fairy. The chilly and desolate air emitting from his body was very thick. After a long pause, the corner of his mouth lifted into a brilliant but still thinly cold smile. He merely said, “go back.”

He had already turned to leave before the sound of his words reached her.

“Third senior brother…” the Jade Lake’s fairy bit her lips and tugged on the hem of Nangong Liuyun’s wide cloak. Her eyes were misty with tears, giving off a lovely yet woeful appearance.

Nangong Liuyun’s hand covered her slender white hands and harshly dislodged them.

Without even turning his head, using large strides he departed. His figure from the back was very decisive and determined.

Concealed by her sleeves, the veins in the Jade Lake fairy’s hands violently started to burst. Her beautiful eyes also became malicious and a fierce, venomous killing intent flashed within their depths.

“Young Mistress. Tonight, do you want this servant to——?” Qin Ning whispered while making a slitting throat gesture as she quietly approached the Jade Lake fairy’s side.

The Jade Lake fairy’s eyes erupted like a volcano spewing out molten lava. Her palm directly slapped Qin Ning’s face. “The best opportunity was wasted by you. Once we return, go to the Punishment Hall to receive your penance.”

This slap contained the force of Heaven and Earth, it was so severe that it had sent Qin Ning flying. Once she tumbled to the ground, Qin Ning immediately passed out.

The Jade Lake fairy flung her sleeves then walked off with an formidable aura of death.

That same night, the Jade Lake’s fairy took her group of people and left. They decamped, leaving everything so clean and neat it was as if they had never been.

That group of black-robed people had also evacuated neatly without leaving a trace behind.

On the horse carriage that was returning, one more person had been added. The added person was Ling Feng.

He was Nangong Liuyun’s hidden bodyguard. Normally, he would stealthily protect Nangong Liuyun.

The Dragon Scaled Horse ran like the wind.

Su Luo was seated inside the carriage in a resting position with her back facing Nangong Liuyun and eyes closed.

This type of posture was a deliberate snub, rejecting all conversation.

Her expression was nonchalant, like clouds on the horizon. It was so remote and distant, making Su Luo seem unreachable.

Nangong Liuyun’s expression was brooding. as his complexion slowly darkened.

Su Luo was attempting to straighten her body when suddenly a large shadow enveloped her entire person.

She unconsciously opened her eyes.

Before Su Luo could focus, unexpectedly she was confined within Nangong Liuyun’s embrace. His slender fingers glided over her face and paused between her lips.

Her lips were exceptionally beautiful. They were light in color, moist and plump, evoking the phrase ‘suitable to be kissed’.

Nangong Liuyun leaned down. His beautiful, perfect, and thin lips kissed Su Luo’s lightly colored lips.

But, Su Luo firmly pushed him away.

“Are you still blaming this king?” Nangong Liuyun asked in a low voice, his scorching gaze fixated on her.

Su Luo was wordlessly silent.

“Angry at this king for abandoning you that day?” Nangong Liuyun’s voice was clearly cold.

Su Luo remained silent.

Within the carriage, there was a period of silence.

After what seemed to be a long time, Nangong Liuyun delivered some words in explanation. “She and this king grew up together. She saved this king’s life once. There are some matters that you don’t understand and are unlikely to understand…”

Su Luo opened her eyes and shot him an offhand glance. All of a sudden, the corner of her mouth hooked into a taunting smile and she asked in a contrary manner, “Right, how could I blame you?”

What Nangong Liuyun intended to say was choked off by her words. A look of astonishment containing complicated feelings flashed across his eyes. This prompted him to return to his frequent habit of staring at Su Luo.

Su Luo lifted her eyebrows, giving him a smile that was not a smile. “What qualifications do I have to blame you? Like you said, the two of you have been together since childhood. You are childhood sweethearts with mutual trust. You have saved each other’s lives. We are only strangers who came together by chance and have between us a few short days of friendship. Therefore, how could I blame you?”

      So…I think he realizes JLF did something, but he might’ve underestimated it to being merely threatening her to leave him instead of actually trying to kill SL.

      That said, he also have some ‘debt’ to JLF that prevents him from acting outright against her (my guess: JLF set that debt up)

      So maybe his previous ‘don’t lie’ comment was trying to hint at Su Luo to not speak the ‘truth’ out right there, since he won’t be able to do anything even if so.
      Normally she might’ve picked up that hint, but Su Luo at that was point focused on trying to decide if he really valued her over JLF, so that comment just ends up backfiring on NL instead.

      THAT SAID, I think his biggest problem right now is his way of doing things. He simply skips straight into the hug/kiss as if that’s the only way he knows to appease girls. He is always holding himself at higher position than the other, which in turn factors into why SL won’t reciprocate his feeling since what she want is someone ‘equal’.

      • Arkeus says:

        I’ve said this earlier, but an issue of NL is that prior to the series start he never had anyone who was close to as capable as he is.

        So, while he sort of thinks that Su Luo is very talented and interesting, he has a hard time internalizing that she might actually be as capable as he is, and as such he acts in ways that disregard her agency or he withold things because he doesn’t trust her.

        Thanksfully this will change.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  4. AkuyaKibito says:

    No, Nangong Liuyun, you’ve already done it, no matter what you do now, we are not gonna forgive you, f*** you 🙂

  5. AngelSanc26 says:

    Yes! Frostiness all the way!

  6. hipployta says:

    SUFFER!!!!

    So what if he suspects her…Su Luo didn’t see that.

  7. AO says:

    Thank you for the chapter!!!! You just made my day!!!!

  8. ludagad says:

    Didn’t expect a new chapter today! So happy ^^. Thank you, esteemed translators and editors~
    I’m not too mad at NL, more at the ‘fairy’, but he still needs to change his ways before I can consider him decent enough for a male lead. There are many ways into a woman’s heart, but disregarding her anger and forcing kisses on her is not one of them… Unless she’s a major pushover, which she isn’t anymore thankfully. So I’m looking forward to her improving her battle capabilities, more than the romance. NL, go away for a bit and reflect…

  9. Lord Smooze says:

    Oh Gawd, he’s going to interpret the last thing she said as her being jealous of the fairy isn’t he?

  10. libraryrocker says:

    Wow, Jade Fairy is terrible… Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!

  11. Lhie says:

    Ignore him and just play with little meng. Pls.

  12. Asu says:

    Way to nail him in the heart XD
    SL is ruthless to compassion but he deserves it for the moment.

  13. Busy Bee says:

    Thanks for the update. Glad SL has her perspective right. Give him the cold shoulder.

  14. Kaiser says:

    I love SL this cute intelligent girl. If only this cleverness should be used accordingly the world would be a better realm. Ha.
    Thank you VM

  15. Ricecal says:

    When the time comes, I hope she will also made to choose who to believe, and choose the other party instead of NL and say those kind of words to him too.
    Thank you very much.
