Chapter 75 – To subdue a foolish, adorable, pampered spirit (2)
Let alone daring to challenge someone as strong as the Jade Lake’s fairy.
Yes, the Jade Lake’s fairy continuously smiled at her, with an ordinary expression which lacked emotions. But from within her smile, Su Luo could clearly read her state of mind; and it showed a kind of——disdain.
She had exuded an air of contempt. As if to say, just by a slight move of her finger; she could squish Su Luo like a bug.
This type of impression made Su Luo feel extremely out of sorts.
Within her heart a raging fighting spirit had been ignited!
She, Su Luo was not a good-for-nothing; on the contrary, she was a super gifted genius with an affiliation for three elemental systems. If she was only given a chance, her future accomplishments would not be any bit inferior to others!
Su Luo made a fist!
This time, she must find dragon’s blood in order to open up her space element. This way, her wood and fire dual systems wouldn’t be firmly suppressed, giving her the opportunity to start cultivating.
Otherwise, no matter how great her innate talent, it would still be useless.
The person she was right now could be considered the richest individual under the heavens. There were mountains of gold and silver within her grasp, but, up until now, she couldn’t find the keys to open the door. She could only gaze at the ocean and lament her inadequacy (1) from outside the door.
Time passed slowly, bit by bit.
However, Nangong Liuyun hadn’t returned yet.
She was not sure what had happened, because all of the magical beasts had run away. For at this time, the surroundings were very still and quiet. The stillness was strangely eerie, like the calm before the storm.
Suddenly, the storm winds began to rise.
The powerful gale whistled and screamed with blasts that made the entire earth tremble. The small tree house swayed and tottered in the wind’s midst.
Su Luo leaned forward and looked out the window.
Laid before her was the scene, of a tornado as black as ink, moving rapidly while roaring towards her exact location
It was similar to a giant creature that extended its bloody mouth wide open like a sacrificial bowl (2), with thunderous snarls, while baring its fangs and brandishing its claws (3). It was as if both heaven and earth allowed it to do whatever it pleases. Nobody could possibly prevent it.
The tornado came hurtling past.
The small wooden house teetered on the verge of collapse.
In order to not be blown away flying, Su Luo tightly clutched a pillar.
Suddenly, Su Luo became aware that under her foot she sensed bouts of earth quaking and the mountains shaking (4). She looked out the tiny window and couldn’t help be somewhat flabbergasted.
She discovered that her entire person, oh, it should be more accurate to say the entire small tree house had actually been lifted from the ground.
Very quickly, the small tree house broke away from the thousand year old ancient tree trunk. It was uprooted and the tornado swept it up into midair
However it could be deemed fortunate that the small tree house hasn’t collapsed and fallen apart, rather it still stood firmly.
But still, Su Luo’s complexion had turned somewhat pale.
She visually estimated that her current distance from the ground was roughly about a hundred meters. If she was to fall from such a height, she would become nothing but torn body and crushed bones (5) not even crumbs would remain.
She have yet to cultivate flying techniques. If she fell down, then there was only one word…death.
Su Luo aggravatedly scratched her head.
That damned Nangong Liuyun! He only knew how to be concerned about the Jade Lake’s fairy, while leaving her as he pleased in a random spot at the original place.
And also that damned tornado! Why sweep up the small wooden house where she was? Obviously there were still other small tree houses over there….
Like this, she could also be chosen? In the end what kind of luck was this? Su Luo was hit by a moment of extreme speechlessness….
The surrounding gale of the tornado rages on; however in the eyes of the tornado the breeze was still, and waves were quiet (6). At present, Su Luo sat in the faintly fluttering small tree house, just as if she was sitting in a hot air balloon.
Now if someone was to see this, they would certainly be stupefied such that their chin would drop to the ground.
Because the people of this world had never seen a house flying in the sky….Could this be considered the first time since the beginning of history?
Just when Su Luo had became all too nervous, suddenly, a tiny spherical body was thrown into the small wooden house. It tumbled to the floor and rolled about until it finally stopped by Su Luo’s feet.
This spherical object….
Su Luo meticulously looked it up and down. In her heart a trace of misgivings flashed through, it looked like a type of egg, moreover it was a very large egg.
Could it be that even flying in the sky, she could still pick up an egg?
Was it possible for the mother bird to be flying and laying an egg at the same time?
At that moment, three black lines appeared on Su Luo’s forehead.
1) gaze at the ocean and lament her inadequacy – idiom: to feel powerless and incompetent (to perform a task)
2) bloody mouth wide open like a sacrificial bowl – idiom: ferocious mouth of beast of prey; greedy exploiter; rapacious aggressor.
3) baring its fangs and brandishing its claws – idiom: to make threatening gestures.
4) earth quaking and the mountains shaking – could also mean: tremendous battle
5) torn body and crushed bones – figuratively meaning to die horribly; to sacrifice one’s life
6) breeze was still, and waves were quite – idiom: tranquil environment; all is quiet; a dead calm (at sea)
