Chapter 49 – A strong and overbearing kiss (1)
When Su Luo and Nangong Liuyun decided on a meeting place, she obediently waited under a big tree on the outskirts of the town.
Not long after, clouds of dust rose, from far away, and one could hear the waves of sound coming from a beast’s roar.
Su Luo looked ahead.
She saw a strangely shaped horse dragging an exquisite carriage and galloping towards her in a fast, vigorous manner. In a blink of an eye, it had arrived.
The gorgeous, extravagant carriage had the curtains surrounding it were cut from real silk and inlaid with an obscure red plum blossoms embroidery.
The carriage was made from pear tree wood, and it’s two walls were engraved with golden flowers. The gilding was inlaid with jade that were formed into, exquisite carvings along with other cut gems. From the top of the carriage rows of pink tassels, that surrounded the gig, dangled and spun around in the wind creating a gorgeous atmosphere
What made more people turn around was the white horse.
This was not just any insignificant, ordinary horse.
If one looked closely, it could be seen that his body was covered in greenish-blue scales, yet its body was still like that of a horse. It looked like an unusual divine spirit horse. Furthermore it’s running speed was faster than a Thousand Li Blood-Perspiring Treasure-Horse* by several folds.
Almost in a blink of an eye, it stood quietly not moving in front of Su Luo.
The greenish-blue scales on its body gleamed. Nodding its head and shaking its tail, the horse raised both hooves and whinned toward the sky, giving off the appearance of a true divine spirit horse.
“Could this be a Dragon Scaled Horse?” Su Luo exclaimed in surprise.
These days she had been focused on studying the history and general knowledge of this continent, so she currently had some knowledge about common species.
“How could it not be?” Nangong Liuyun’s indulgent, devilish, charmingly-low voice carried a hint of laughter.
His sedan chair was obscured by a curtain of jade beads, but she could faintly see Nangong Liuyun gracefully reclined on the soft cushion inside the horse carriage. She could see that he was dressed entirely in a gorgeously flowing, soft robe made of golden silk threads It’s hem was curved like a warm cloud, twisting and turning, draped across the edge of the soft couch with layers folded upon layers. Even the flowing light dispelled all of the shadows and created a pretty flirtatious and compelling atmosphere.
Even for a moment, Su Luo found it hard to believe her own eyes.
According to her knowledge, the Dragon Scaled Horse was a type of demon beast, with extraordinary strength. Even the most ordinary, run of the mill Dragon Scaled Horse’s strength was equivalent to a person of fifth ranked martial artist.
What kind of strength was someone of a fifth rank? Take for example, Su Xi. This little genius was still only at the second rank. Su Jingyu is merely at the third rank, and, as for the grand general that protects the country, Su Zian, he had not even passed the fifth rank.
Just with this single small Dragon Scaled Horse, one could be compared to an important general that protects the country. Among all the powerful people, only Nangong Liuyun had this horse in the entire Eastern Ling Empire! Nobody else had one, ah.
Not only that, he did not raise this Dragon Scaled Horse as a battle companion but instead used it as he wished to draw a carriage.
Its use was extremely extravagant. He was indeed deserving of being called his legendary highness, Prince Jin.
“Come here.” Nangong Liuyun beckoned with his slender, pale-white fingers from within the carriage. a hypnotic smile as intoxicating as blooming cherry blossoms in March, appeared on his face.
His words were unhurried and careless but held a kind of strength that couldn’t be ignored.
Su Luo, who wanted to test the speed of a Dragon Scaled Horse, voluntarily lifted the jade bead curtain and sat inside.
Compared to the carriage’s gorgeous extravagant exterior, the interior space was much more delicate, beautifully detailed, and refined.
The interior wall was inlaid with all kinds of gemstones:, amber, pearl, and high quality crystals that were priceless and unique. These gems emitted a faint luster, which generated the excess light that sweep away the haze and blur of any shadows.
“ Such an extravagant carriage room. You must have milked many people dry of their blood, sweat and tears. Am I right?” Su Luo while admiring the luxurious carriage interior, clicked her tongue in wonder.
Nangong Liuyun’s face was like the full moon of Mid-Autumn , pure white and sleekly smooth, were accentuated by a pair of beautiful eyes like resplendent obsidian jade. He muffled a light laugh, “ what about it? Are you going to play the part of the righteous heroine that comes to the aid of those suffering injustice?”
“I don’t have that much spare time.” Su Luo waved her hands. She sat and, doing as she pleased, picked up the white jade teapot and gracefully poured herself a cup of fragrant tea. As she finished pouring she gave praise, “as expected of his highness, Prince Jin. you really know how to live life to the fullest. Sitting in the most ostentatious horse carriage; drinking the most concentrated and fragrant green tea.”
“Also discovering the most obstinate woman.” Nangong Liuyun’s lanky arms went fishing, and completely lacking any warning sign, Su Luo had already fallen into his embrace.
*Thousand Li Blood-Perspiring Treasure-Horse: A special type of normal horse raised with parasites in them. The horse runs very fast due to the parasite; they will also sweat blood around their neck thus, getting their name sake. (Chinese Li = ⅓ of a mile)
