Chapter 1288 – Northern Mo Imperial Palace (1)
On the entire journey, Su Luo and Nangong Liuyun actually didn’t find a trace of the old madman. The two of them safely arrived at the Northern Mo Imperial Capital.
Before they entered the city, Su Luo and Nangong Liuyun got off the Dragon Scaled Horse and directly put it in her space.
After all, this Dragon Scaled Horse was truly too famous in the City of Criminals. No one knew, in the end, how many people would run out from the City of Criminals, whether someone would recognize the Dragon Scaled Horse. In order to be prepared for all eventualities, the two people made full preparations outside the city.
“Let’s go.” Nangong Liuyun’s eyes contained intoxicatingly soft waves. He led Su Luo and went towards the tightly-guarded north city gates.
Su Luo half-supported him and asked with deep concern: “How are your injuries?”
Using the faint light of dawn, Su Luo carefully observed Nangong Liuyun’s complexion. After going through one day and one night of recuperation and smoothing his breathing, his complexion looked somewhat better than before. It was no longer scarily pale.
“Relax, I’m in the midst of recovering step by step.” Nangong Liuyun’s lips hooked up, and he laughed. Seeing this little appearance of his Luo girl’s deeply worried expression, his mood became very good.
At that time in the Nine Different Palace Halls, Su Luo had used more than half of her blood to cover Nangong Liuyun’s body in a moment of desperation. It caused his body to change completely, therefore, his recovery speed was really fast, not inferior in any aspect when compared to that old madman.
The two people arrived on foot to the city gates and saw a long dragon-like line of people queueing there, and Su Luo frowned slightly.
This was the Northern Mo Imperial Capital. The security at the city gates was extremely tight, a diplomatic note was required for entry and exit. People without a diplomatic note would be arrested on the spot. Back then, Su Luo and Nangong Liuyun didn’t actually come through the imperial capital. Instead, they had gone across from the edges of the Dark Forest and directly entered the Snowfield Plateau.
“Should we wait till dark before going in?” Su Luo watched the stream of people as each of them was inspected, and her eyes half-narrowed.
Nangong Liuyun’s thin lips hooked into a smile carrying a hint of mysteriousness: “Silly girl, this king brought you here, so how could this king let you wait? Waiting, that’s other people’s matter.”
“Your Highness Prince Jing, such big tone. However, this isn’t the Eastern Ling. Moreover, as far as I know, Northern Mo and Eastern Ling have always had a bad relationship. There were often times of friction at the border. Who knows when a war will start up?” Su Luo smilingly hooked her arm into his. She raised her little face, her pitch-black eyes blinked, dazzling like the stars in the night sky.
“Just follow me.” Nangong Liuyun led Su Luo along, strutting towards the city gates.
This walk of theirs immediately gave rise to spirited discussions.
“Hey, you guys, line up! You can’t cut the line here!”
“Maybe they have privileges ah.”
“Privileges, my ass. Even if they’re a third-ranked high official, they still have to line up obediently, understand? This is our Northern Mo’s rule!”
“That feeble-minded pair, they must be from another place right? Strutting like that, wanting to walk the privileged route. They’ll definitely be arrested and thrown in jail.”
“What a pity ah. You guys look, the man is incomparably handsome, while the woman is a beauty that doesn’t exist under the heavens. Oh, a pity ah, a pity…”
These spirited discussion naturally reached Su Luo’s ears.
Su Luo took a look at Nangong Liuyun.
Nangong Liuyun looked ahead, with the corners of his lips hooking into a demonically enchanting smile.
Su Luo found it even more difficult to understand. The two of them were fleeing, right? This was wanting to enter the imperial palace and hide, right? If so, shouldn’t the two of them be keeping a low-profile? With Nangong Liuyun being so high-profile like this, was it truly okay?
However, seeing Nangong Liuyun’s appearance of having a hidden card up his sleeve, it was hard for Su Luo to say something.
Before long, Nangong Liuyun had led Su Luo along and came directly to a stop before the city gates.
