Chapter 1257 – A matter of life or death (1)
“What’s going on, ah?” Like a curious baby, Beichen Ying stood on the tips of his toes and looked around in all directions. When he finished doing that, he even jumped up on a tree and looked towards the east.
“It’s definitely Old Man Mo howling madly.” The corners of Su Luo’s lips raised into a complacent smile.
Consequently, Su Luo seized this opportunity to tell the others about the sinister thing she did to Old Man Mo.
Su Luo had always been an eloquent speaker. On top of that, this matter was to the satisfaction of everyone. As a result, Beichen Ying and Zi Yan listened until they were fired up, wishing they could personally go and tease Old Man Mo until he ran around in circles.
“Really fun! Simply too amusing!” Zi Yan waved her fist around excitedly, her eyes twinkling like stars, “How unfortunate. At that time, why wasn’t I at the scene? If I could personally see that Old Ancestor Mo, who always had his nostrils pointed up to the sky, eat a loss, how amusing would that be?!”
Nangong Liuyun stroked Su Luo’s head helplessly. With regards to this girl, he was simply speechless. If she wanted to play with fire, then fine. However, to think that she went as far as to set the forest on fire…
“Girl, don’t tell me you don’t know what is called playing with fire?” Nangong Liuyun’s words carried a touch of helplessness.
“Huh?” Su Luo glanced back at him in puzzlement, the bewilderment clear in her eyes.
Nangong Liuyun explained patiently while stressing each word, “The Divine Spirit Tree was dug out by you. All the elixirs inside the Central Palace’s Treasure Storage Pavilion were also all taken by you. Now, Old Ancestor Mo is ill. You say, what do you think Central Palace will do?”
Zi Yan, in a schadenfreude manner, said: “Haha, to not have spirit medicines at the crucial moment, also serves that Old Ancestor Mo right!”
Nangong Liuyun knocked Zi Yan’s head unhappily, “Spirit medicine? Right now, there’s a living spirit medicine right before our eyes.”
Very clearly, these few excited guys had forgotten about Su Luo’s situation quite thoroughly.
“Ah!!!” Beichen Ying returned to his senses and immediately shrieked, “Right now, Luo Luo is the only elixir. Then doesn’t that mean——”
Beichen Ying’s pair of bright, pure, and limpid like glass eyes, stared at Su Luo foolishly and blankly.
Su Luo immediately stiffened on the spot.
She… she… she… had actually forgotten… this… matter… entirely!
Right now, Old Ancestor Mo was ill, and Central Palace didn’t have any spirit medicine they could take out. So, wouldn’t they directly set their plans on her? Su Luo pulled her hair in annoyance.
If she had known earlier that it would be like this, then she would have left a bit of spirit medicine for treating the mind. Unfortunately, it was too late to do anything now.
“He came, he came, he came!” Beichen Ying nervously made a big fuss, “The First Elder just came over!”
Beichen Ying’s words had just finished, when First Elder appeared before everyone.
The First Elder’s expression was black, his ice-cold gaze stared at Su Luo like a viper. Traces of dark radiance flickered in his eyes.
“What do you want to do?” Beichen Ying took a step forward, blocking the completely unconcealed gaze which the First Elder used to look at Su Luo.
Su Luo felt a chill in her heart. First Elder had arrived very quickly, and seeing his appearance, there was no leeway to discuss this issue.
Su Luo was afraid Beichen Ying would get hurt by accident, so she walked out from behind him and looked at First Elder with a water-like shallow gaze. Although, in terms of strength, Su Luo wasn’t a match for this First Eder, but the expert aura she was emitting from her whole body, gave birth to a restraining fear in people.
First Elder was slightly shaken by Su Luo’s gaze. When he opened his eyes wider to take another look, that kingly power pressing down on him had vanished without a trace.
“Su girl, take a walk with this elder.” The First Elder turned around and wanted to pull Su Luo away. However, before his hand could touch Su Luo’s right arm, he was obstructed by someone.
Nangong Liuyun hooked his lips up into a smile that wasn’t a smile. His distinctly handsome appearance carried a hint of cold intent: “First Elder came here so hurriedly, don’t know what brought you here?”
