Chapter 1459 – Behind-the-scenes person (2)
That year, when Su Qing was saved by someone, everyone knew being that able to save Su Qing in front of everyone’s eyes, that person’s strength had reached a frightening stage. Everyone was all worried about when Su Qing would return as a king of martial arts, and give Su Luo a mortal blow.
Su Qing, hidden in the dark, was like a poisonous snake that at anytime might show its fangs and rush over. It made people feel scared and on edge all the time. Even if Su Luo herself didn’t mind, but the people at her side had always been worried about this on her behalf. Now, it’s good, Su Qing finally was disposed of.
After having settled Su Qing, this potential trouble, everybody was all smiles. They started to count box after box of the huge harvest from this time’s bet.
Besides this betting shop, they had also bet a lot of money in other betting shops. That was all at a compensation of one to five ah. It was also a very considerable amount of wealth.
“Three thousand cyan-colored crystal stones!”
“Oh heavens, there are actually ten thousand green-colored crystal stones!” Zi Yan was almost flabbergasted.
She hadn’t ever seen this many green-colored crystal stones, even in Purgatory City’s storehouse.
“Fifty thousand yellow-colored crystal stones.” Lan Xuan yelled immediately after.
“One hundred thousand orange-colored crystal stones.” Beichen Ying couldn’t finish counting by himself, and called out a number that he estimated.
“There are a countless number of red-colored crystal stones.”
“Silvers are too many to count!”
Seeing this scene, everyone was grinning from ear to ear.
“Huh, where’s Luo Luo?” Beichen Ying was the first to return to his senses from happily laughing.
“She followed Third Senior Brother to go out. Don’t you go and disturb them.” Zi Yan, in one move, grabbed Beichen Ying, who was about to take large strides to go find Su Luo.
Beichen Ying originally wanted to find Su Luo to share this good news. But he was pulled to a stop by Zi Yan, so he could only rub his nose. For the time being, he controlled the desire of his excited heart to tell everything.
Now, Su Luo was just sitting with Nangong Liuyun in the courtyard, basking in the sun.
The warm sunlight shining on people made one feel sleepy, but Su Luo’s mind was very focused.
Right now, after she finished being too happy, she had somewhat sunk into a low point.
“What are you thinking about right now?” Nangong Liuyun saw Su Luo was unhappy, his arm moved, then hugged Su Luo to his chest. Then, he pulled at her pigtails, “What’s wrong?”
Su Luo’s clear, monochrome, limpid eyes met Nangong Liuyun’s pitch-black as ink eyes. She resolutely said: “Do you think Su Qing’s matter is really finished?”
Nangong Liuyun pinched Su Luo’s nose, smiling gently and full of indulgence: “Didn’t Su Qing already die?”
‘You clearly know the person behind Su Qing….” Su Luo depressedly slapped her head, “At that time, did the person save her just because her aptitude was good? Do you think it’s true?”
Seeing that Su Luo still wouldn’t let this matter rest, Nangong Liuyun’s expression also became a bit serious: “Don’t need to think too much on it.”
“This is not a problem of thinking too much or not.” Su Luo straightened her back and firmly said, “Whether I think about it or not, this problem had existed all along. I always felt that Su Qing’s disappearance at that time wasn’t by chance.”
“Then what do you think?” Nangong Liuyun’s voice was soft and light, carrying a trace of sighing. How was it that his family’s Luo girl was so smart, unfortunately, these matters weren’t something the current her could assume.
Su Luo did not miss the light that flashed through Nangong Liuyun’s eyes. She cupped Nangong Liuyun’s exquisite, sculpted outlined features, and firmly looked into his eyes. She seriously said, “You tell me, is it because you know who the person behind Su Qing is?”
Nangong Liuyun smilingly rubbed Su Luo’s head: “This is not a problem you should be worried about right now. When the time comes, you will naturally know, okay?”
