Chapter 1155 – Unexpected (5)
Nangong Liuyun and Su Luo stood in place, both of their complexions were somewhat unsightly.
The Nine Different Palace Halls’ master’s gaze swept over Nangong Liuyun’s face with a cunning glint in his eyes: “I can guarantee on my honor as the Nine Different Palace Halls’ master, there is definitely the Scarlet Blood Ningpo Figwort amidst the rewards!”
This sentence was simply a naked fruit to entice!
Luo Haochen and the others’ gazes when looking at Nangong Liuyun carried fear and dread.
If it’s said that previously, they had carried an extravagant hope for Nangong Liuyun’s magnanimous, benevolent, and noble warrior-like demeanor, then, after these days of interactions, this extravagant hope had already turned into despair.
They were very sure that in order to save Su Luo, there was nothing Nangong Liuyun wouldn’t do!
Thinking up to here, the fear in Luo Haochen’s heart was magnified limitlessly by himself. Magnified so much… in the end, he actually was so scared, his entire body trembled.
Nangong Liuyun quietly stood where he was.
The goose feather-like large snowflakes sprinkled down, like exquisite flowers, faintly discernible and gorgeous.
Nangong Liuyun’s sharp eyebrows raised up slightly as he cast sidelong glances at the master of the Nine Different Palace Halls.
A hint of discontent flashed through the Nine Different Palace Halls’ master’s eyes. Without waiting for him to speak, Nangong Liuyun’s voice faintly rang out, “Reportedly, the master of the Nine Different Palace Halls has two souls. Don’t know if your distinguished self is the black one or white one?”
The Nine Different Palace Halls’ master had two souls. The white palace hall master was good and frank, the black palace hall master was deceitful. However… there were very few people who knew about this matter. And out of these few people, who could be counted on one’s fingers, it was impossible to have Nangong Liuyun from the younger generation know.
The Nine Different Palace Halls’ master’s eyes narrowed dangerously and glared at Nangong Liuyun with ill will. He scoffed coldly and heavily.
“So, it turns out that your distinguished self is the black palace hall master ah. No wonder the way you’re handling this is so unreasonable and childish. How ridiculous and disgraceful.” Nangong Liuyun taunted ruthlessly.
“Loathsome boy, you dare criticize this master of the palace halls, tired of living!” The black palace hall master glared at Nangong Liuyun darkly. Then, he gave a cold and heavy scoff, “Since this is your choice, then fine, you guys walk down that set path! Hmph, I see the girl by your side won’t live for much longer anyway.”
Nangong Liuyun’s complexion was not good.
When Su Luo heard this, she immediately became angry.
She was just standing there, not saying a single word, and yet she was still unjustly ridiculed?
She coldly looked askance at that black palace hall master: “With Nangong around, I’ll definitely live longer than you! You’re so leisurely, you should be worrying about yourself instead.”
The black palace hall master immediately grew furious. He got so angry that he bellowed: “You despicable fellow and loathsome girl! The two of you who don’t know how to differentiate good from bad! Such a good shortcut and you won’t take it. You insist on challenging the most difficult route! Fine, since I have already finished saying the things I ought to say, when the time comes, regardless of whether you live or die, can’t blame me!”
Panting with rage, the Nine Different Palace Halls’ master said a whole lot of stuff in one breath. It could be seen how angry he was inside. If he hadn’t been entrusted with this task by someone, why would he do this sort of thing to instruct people using pretext for gossip? Hmph, hmph!
Actually, how could Su Luo not know in her heart that this black soul of the Nine Different Palace Halls’ master was doing this for their own good? Although she didn’t know why he was this biased, but he was very clearly biased.
However, if they really went down the route this nine palace halls’ master had arranged, she and Nangong Liuyun alone would survive, but Beichen and Zi Yan’s lives would certainly be sacrificed.
So, Nangong Liuyun and Su Luo had simultaneously decided on a different path with untold dangers and difficulties.
Nangong Liuyun had confidence in himself.
Su Luo had her friendship which she could not give up on.
At this time, how could Beichen Ying and Zi Yan not understand the meaning in the black palace hall master’s words? They looked at Su Luo, wanting to say something but hesitated.
However, Luo Haochen and the others secretly let out a sigh of relief. They thought about it for quite a while before realizing that this black palace hall master had indeed come to skew the road.
Everyone had originally been walking on that road, but this black palace hall master had insisted that Nangong Liuyun pick the shortcut. And this shortcut was to kill them all except for Su Luo.
“You two idiots!” The black palace hall master’s complexion got as dark as the bottom of a pot, “Since the two of you wholeheartedly want to court death, then this palace hall master will help accomplish it!”
This black palace hall master was clearly acting in a fit of pique!
