Chapter 57 – Coldly arrogant, distinctively remote, with an indomitable air that terrorized all
Miss Liu had already pushed Su Luo to the side, her small, bright, and beautiful face exuded rays of light like the luster of gems. She somewhat bashfully stared at Nangong Liuyun. “Prince Jin, is your highness also going to the Sunset Mountain Range?”
Nangong Liuyun was clothed in a azure brocade robe with the wings of golden serpents embroidered on its cloth. His pair of long, slender, white hands gracefully swirled the wine cup made of jade. From time to time, he would take a sip, with a happy and content demeanor; it was almost as if Miss Liu did not even exist in front of his eyes.
Even when Liu Ruohua saw Nangong Liuyun’s icy expression and dismissive manner, she was still not discouraged, she hurried said, “Prince Jin, your, your highness doesn’t remember me? I am Ruohua ah, Liu Ruohua. That time at the Imperial Mage school, your highness gave me pointers on how to cultivate ….”
Nangong Liuyun’s phoenix-like eyes narrowed and swept her a slight glance. Although he was smiling, the depth of his matchless eyes seem to be indifferent. After quite a while an icy voice delivered, “Are you finished speaking?”
Liu Ruohua nervously nodded her head, and prudently observed Nangong Liuyun’s expression.
According to Su Xi’s remarks, Prince Jin was the Nine Pagoda Palace’s celestial being. Even looking at him once was blasphemy. Now that she could stand, face to face in front of him, Liu Rouhua felt extremely nervous. Her heart felt like it was about to jump out of her throat.
The corners of Nangong Liuyun’s mouth curved up. His eyes were obviously laughing, but their pupils were ice-cold and indifferent. With a trace of impatience in his tone, “then scram.”
He stingily did not provide her with any superfluous word.
Liu Ruohua’s face immediately turned red. She was floundering as she stood there, not knowing what to do.
This was such a rare opportunity to get close to his highness, Prince Jin. How could she so easily let it go? By the next time they meet, who knows if there will be such a chance?
Liu Ruohua made a fist, inwardly trying to muster up some encouragement for herself. Her stiffed face squeezed out a glittering, bright and beautiful smile. “Prince Jin. Is your highness also planning on going to Sunset Mountain Range? My team is also heading there, so perhaps it would be better if we go together…..”
Nangong Liuyun’s slender white, jade-like fingers idly fiddled around with his ruby thumb ring. Having heard what was said, his eyes lifted slightly, throwing a dismissive glance her way.
This glance, coldly arrogant and distinctively remote yet also with an indomitable air that terrorized all before him; like a sharp sword’s murderous aura, strong enough to make people tremble with fear.
That glance made Liu Ruo’s eager heart shrink and clogged to the point where it felt as if a huge boulder was blocking its flow. Unfinished words were swallowed back through her throat and into her stomach. She did not dare to even speak half a phrase more.
Her ashen-white face could only feel the cold sweat flowing down, drop by drop.
Nangong Liuyun returned his gaze back to watching Su Luo; the smiling expression from the depths of his eyes was dazzling and alluring. His pale hand, smooth as jade, picked up a chopstick full of green vegetables and placed them into Su Luo’s bowl, with a smile that was eagerly attentive and fawning. “ How could you attend to the play on such an empty stomach. Now, be obedient and eat another stalk of vegetable.“
Su Luo really wanted to roll her eyes.
Thinking, she really wanted to ask. ‘Dear beloved Prince Jin were your royal highness trying to draw more enmity towards me? Did you not see, just across from me, the veins on that young lady’s pair of hands rose up, itching to strangle me?’
But Su Luo deserving to be called Su Luo, under Liu Ruohua’s dagger-shaped eyes filled with jealousy. She very calmly and collectedly picked up that stalk of vegetable; unhurriedly nibbling on it, as if it was the most delicious delicacies in the world.
When Nangong Liuyun saw that she did not refuse, his face was happy like a blooming flower. Once again he personally held a bowl while ladling the Wild King Mushroom soup into the bowl, with an integrating and saccharine smile. “ Come, you should also drink this soup. It’s tasty and nourishing, and it’s not bad.”
Opposite of them, like a lonely pestle shaped bundle of wood-pile, Liu Ruohua was so stunned that she almost fell to the floor. She simply could not believe it——
She even wanted to rub her eyes to clearly see this perfect example of male god smiling with such a silly expression in front of her eyes. Is this guy really the rumored callous prince of legend? He who dealt fatal blows to others and possessed some advanced stage of mysophobia? Can this really be his highness, Prince Jin?
There must be some kind of mistake somewhere!
