Chapter 94 – To come back from death’s door (7)
Every time Er Huang was close to catching Su Luo, the opponent’s movements would resemble a mud fish and slip through her fingers. Su Luo took advantage of her every careless mistake to escape, causing Er Huang to become extremely frustrated and unhappy!
Just like now, right when Er Huang was about to lock onto Su Luo, Su Luo’s entire person once again seemed to have disappeared without a trace.
Er Huang vented her anger by launching sword attacks at the swamp, the tip of her double-edged sword sparkled with golden lightning as it flipped endless pieces of mud into the sky.
Within the sword tip, spirit strength accumulated. The light that came from the sword strike was strong enough to take a life.
“Whoosh——” A band of golden rays flashed by Su Luo’s right side, striking her right arm. Su Luo felt a sudden acute pain. It was so agonizing that cold sweat broke out on her face.
At that instant, Su Luo was under the impression that her right arm had been severed.
It took another two hours before Er Huang’s deranged venting of her fury had finally ended.
Su Luo clenched her teeth while crawling out of the swamp. Her right arm was drenched in blood, the intense pain almost made her pass out.
The magnificent Jade Fairy, you did well! This hatred has been engraved into my heart!
Su Luo dragged her exhausted body forward until she found a creek to wash clean her wound. At the same time, she also washed her clothes that were covered with mud.
Due to excessive blood loss, Su Luo felt that her head was spinning, her vision was becoming blurry, and her body was about to faint. She inwardly cried about the hardships in her heart. Right now, she really could not run anymore. If things continued this way, sooner or later, she would be captured by Er Huang.
Suddenly, a light bulb went off in her head, as Su Luo remembered that she had her own treasured space.
Although there was nothing in the space, it still contained the spirit spring. This spirit spring was a sacred commodity that had the ability to heal.
Su Luo cupped her hands, drew the water from her space, and drank. The spirit spring water was like ambrosial nectar; rich, mellow, and full-bodied. Its pure aroma enticed and beckoned.
Su Luo’s previous weak mental state became a lot stronger. Her thought processes recovered completely and she no longer felt dizzy.
After drinking her fill, Su Luo again withdrew a handful of water and sprinkled it on her wounds.
Although the wounds were not healed immediately, the bleeding slowly stopped.
Su Luo released a sigh of relief. At long last, she had come back from death’s door. She had survived.
However, before Su Luo could complete her sigh of relief, she suddenly felt danger approaching from behind.
Su Luo rolled on the ground and avoided a vicious sword strike.
The attacker was not Er Huang but Nen Lu.
She was among the four people that were chasing Su Luo with the intent to kill.
“Vile girl, so you were hiding here, causing your mother to search for you for a long time! Eat my sword!” Without saying another word, Nen Lu directly thrust her sword at Su Luo.
The long double-edged sword became numerous rays of light. In a manner of hiding the sky and covering the earth (1), it launched towards Su Luo.
Momentarily, an unnatural gale which was not caused by the weather erupted.
Su Luo simply could not deflect the attack, she could only rely on her speed to dodge.
However, her body had suffered a severe injury and had also lost a large amount of blood, so she wasn’t as nimble as before.
“Slash——”Su Luo was too slow to dodge, so she was hit with a piercing blow by the double-edged sword. The sharp pain that exploded almost made her faint on the spot. The wound that she had with great difficulty stopped from bleeding, once again burst open.
Overwhelming pain washed over her.
Su Luo clenched her teeth. She bit her bottom lip so hard that blood began to seep out.
Su Luo could not fall. If she fell down now, she would definitely die!
In front of her was an overhanging cliff. The drop from the cliff was deep, so deep that you could not see the bottom. It was also surrounded by heavy fog.
Su Luo’s eyes flashed with relentless determination!
Even if she were to die, she will pull the other person down with her!
However, Su Luo did fall down….
She weakly fell to the ground, motionless as if she had died. Her body lacked even the tiniest sign of life.
A cold smile appeared in Nen Lu’s eyes. She walked to Su Luo’s body, crouched down, and sneered. “Little slut, you have the impertinence to seduce his highness Prince Jin. Even if you die a hundred times it won’t be enough! Rest assured and go. His highness Prince Jin will be well looked after by our Young Mistress.”
After saying this, she hoisted up Su Luo’s corpse and quickly threw it over the cliff’s edge.
Big sister Qin Ning had said before: destroy not only the corpse, but also the evidence.
However, at this moment, misfortune unexpectedly occurred.
