Chapter 991 – Near Death (2)
Tears encased those originally ice-cold, arrogant but now shaken and lost pair of eyes.
But no matter how he shook her, Su Luo still remained motionless with eyes tightly shut.
“Luo Luo!” Nangong Liuyun called out loudly.
What to do? What should he do?
Ever composed as the Sea Stabilizing Divine Needle (1), Nangong Liuyun who had never been frantic, in this instant, his mind was completely blank.
Sensing Su Luo’s body gradually becoming ice-cold, without another word, Nangong Liuyun quickly transferred his own spirit energy into Su Luo’s body.
Starting with such forceful spirit energy, how could the weak Su Luo endure it?
“Puft——” Su Luo violently spat forth a mouthful of blood.
“Luo Luo! How do you feel? Is it serious?” Nangong Liuyun held Su Luo’s deathly pale little face and eagerly asked.
But after Su Luo finished vomiting blood, because of the severe jolt to her psyche, she fainted once again without even opening her eyes.
“Luo Luo, I’ll definitely save you, you’ll definitely be fine, definitely!” Nangong Liuyun’s composure had already been completely obliterated.
He gathered the spirit energy into a thin strand of hot air and slowly sent it into Su Luo’s chest cavity.
Because he gave her his spirit energy, Nangong Liuyun’s originally heavily-damaged organ’s condition worsened even more.
But all his attention was on Su Luo’s body, and he didn’t even glance at his own injuries.
Nangong Liuyun maintained this posture and the delicately thin spirit energy, flowed endlessly into Su Luo’s body like a small brook.
Su Luo’s originally body that was becoming ice-cold, after accepting this strand of spirit energy, gradually began to recover.
Although the recovery was extremely slow, barely visible, but Nangong Liuyun was already ecstatic to the point of going insane.
With a trembling hand, he carefully compressed his spirit energy and send it to Su Luo in an endlessly stream.
He maintained this position for a full three days and three nights.
On this day, the skies gradually grew dark again.
Nangong Liuyun glanced at the skies and his ink-black eyebrows slightly creased.
It was about to rain soon.
He gazed tenderly at Su Luo in his arms.
Her palm-sized small face remained ghastly pale and her breathing was still weak, but compared to before when he found her, her condition was already a bit better.
Nangong Liuyun carefully picked her up, as if he were carrying the world’s most precious treasure.
Below the cliff was scattered stones and a rugged landscape, with no way out.
These few days, while treating Su Luo, Nangong Liuyun’s heavy injuries had also gradually recovered.
Nangong Liuyun carried Su Luo, with a few jumps, flew up the cliff.
Above the cliff, as far as the eye could see, was charred land.
Once, this was Swallow Cloud Mountain range’s highest cliff. Here, ancient trees reached the heavens and stood shoulder to shoulder with the sky.
Here, the skies were covered and for a long time sunlight could not be seen.
Yet, ever since that great battle and that incomparably powerful lightning ball, this jungle area had instantly become a stretch of scorched earth.
Hundreds and thousands of years of nurturing, now only ashes remained.
Suddenly, Nangong Liuyun’s eyes flashed slightly.
He actually saw a mound of scorched black earth, not far from him, move slightly.
Nangong Liuyun held Su Luo protectively to him, deeply afraid that she would suffer a tiny bit of mishap.
That very small lump of black earth was slowly lifted up, very quickly, a tiny animal drilled out from below.
One could only a pitch black body, nearly unable to discern its original appearance.
But those pair of foolishly adorable, watery, large eyes, let Nangong Liuyun recognize it with one glance.
The little divine dragon.
That small thing looked as if it was entirely smeared with ink, was actually that most precious bloodline among the dragon race —— the little divine dragon.
Little divine dragon defensively stared at Nangong Liuyun for a while, suddenly, his gaze turned towards Su Luo.
With a few bounds, the little divine dragon had already rushed towards Su Luo——
1) Sea Stabilizing Divine Needle: Ding Hai Shen Zhen is another name for Jin Gu Bang (Golden Cudgel), a weapon wielded by Sun Wukong, the monkey king from Journey to the West. It was figuratively known as a stabilizing force because before Sun Wukong, nobody could lift it in the underwater palace of the dragon king.
