Chapter 14 – Staring until the heart grew fearful

Ling Feng clenched both of his fists as he coldly measured up Su Luo with eyes full of fury but also a hint of admiration.

How precious is the existence of Prince Jin? And how extraordinary was his talent? Su Manor’s strongest elder was only a 5th step expert, but their master Prince Jin is only 18 years old and was already at the 6th step!

From infancy till now, His Highness Prince Jin had never been so ill-treated before! Yet now, somebody actually hit him! This good-for-nothing girl without a trace of spiritual power actually dared to be so arrogant and belligerent!

Nangong Liuyun stretched out his slender fingers to slowly rub the cheek that was slapped as his pair of haughty, frigid falcon-like eyes gave off a threatening air.

In the hidden depths of his eyes, there was a diabolical glint that was as smooth as a mirror, unusually cold, and unfathomable when he intensely gazed at her beguilingly.

Because of his stare, her heart grew fearful.

A sense of panic flashed across Su Luo’s heart, but quickly it calmed down. With her head held high and chest out, she meet his eyes refusing to yield.

Suddenly, Nangong Liuyun’s frighteningly handsome countenance changed when his mouth slowly begin to tilt up and burst open into a smile similar to a blooming Queen of the Night; flirtatious and magnificent.

“Clap—— Clap—— Clap——” The crisp sound of applause surrounded her until Nangong Liuyun’s used his pair of pretty hands to pull Su Luo into his arms with just a tug.

“Girl, your fierce self confidence makes it hard for people to figure out how to deal with you. Should this king applaud your courage or laugh at your stupidity?” Nangong Liuyun’s pair of devilishly enchanting eyes held a hint of frustration. “Don’t you know that in this country, attacking a 5th step expert would get you the death penalty? You have already been sentenced to death, do you understand that?”

What the heck? She can’t protest against being forcefully kissed? What kind of law is this? Why is it so biased for the strong elite?

Nangong Liuyun seemed to understand her unspoken words and vaguely smiled. “In this world that respects the powerful, the fist is law. It’s not fair right? But who told you to be a good-for-nothing.”

Su Luo clenched her fists, unwilling to let go.

Nangong Liuyun gave her a harsh lesson in reality. Gave her a clear understanding that in this world, only a powerful fist would allow someone to have the right to speak.

Nangong Liuyun slightly narrowed his eyes; his nefariously alluring eyes scanned Su Luo from top to bottom. Then, he stroked her hand and touched her head.

“What are you doing?” Did he think that she was a doll?

Under the moonlight, Nangong Liuyun’s pair of beautiful ink-black irises held a hint of mystery. He suddenly stood up, pulled on Su Luo’s hands, and charmingly said. “Let’s go, I’m going to take you somewhere.”

“Where?” Su Luo looked at him with a perplexed expression.

At this moment, his eyes shone brightly with traces of flickering excitement. It was almost like he had suddenly found an explanation to something he was puzzling over.

“The Spirit Testing Temple.” Nangong Liuyun swiped aside a fine silken strand of black hair from her forehead. His perfect jawline was clearly distinct while his charming voice forcefully compelled her, making it impossible to refuse.

“The Spirit Testing Temple? What are we going to do there?” Su Luo knew this place, because that day when she received her results from the spirit testing temple, was when her life had drastically changed.

“What do you think people do at the Spirit Testing Temple?” Nangong Liuyun suddenly released the sound of a warm chuckle. His voice was friendly and relaxed; the sound was extremely beautiful, especially in the silence of the night sky.

“But doesn’t the Spirit Temple only allow people to enter on the first of the month?”

Nangong Liuyun playfully chuckled a few times. While poking at her smooth forehead, he indulgently said. “Silly girl, you must get used to the fact that some people, like this king, were born to receive such privileged treatment.”

    Thank you for the chapter Alyschu! I guess it’s time for her to stop being a good-for-nothing….

    • Ben says:

      Wait… isn’t June translating this series not Alyschu?

      Also thanks for the chapters, its like DOP and A mistaken marriage match series which I also enjoyed – except the MC is OP right away (which is better imo).

      • alyschu says:

        I translated the first 10-11(?) then June came along and did these later chapters because she told me she loved it after reading it from the raws here~ 🙂

        Whoever’s mentioned first is the translator. I think helio means Alyschu&Co? That’s the group name because we’re a bunch of casuals who are too lazy to think up a team name.. xD..

      • heliocat says:

        Correction: Thank you Alyschu + June + co!
        Yes, i forgot the co… oops! I usually go with what it says on the project page for translator thank yous.

      • Rune says:

        No DOP isnt mistaken marriage also its better and unlike this which was supposed to be strong willed female lead it seems its more and more that the male comes and rapes the female lead and the female lead is like “okay take me handsome” I think the title is a hoax what part of this story is about strong female lead it dosent need to be physically but mentally at least but seems like shes mentally weak too.

    “In this world that respects the powerful, the fist is law. It’s not fair right?”

    No, but for some reason alllllll the xianxia authors feel compelled to create a world like this.

    (don’t mind my bitching, I enjoy this stuff in small doses and thanks for the TL. I’ll probably keep bitching though haha.)

  8. Asu says:

  9. MoonKnight says:

    Who is this “Ling Feng”?

  10. Gilson says:

    Thanks for the chapter!

    This has a rough start, doesn’t it? There’s no chemistry, but the ML instantly goes on the offensive and disregards the idea of personal space, something that he normally hates when someone steps into, himself. Acting like she’s his property and dragging her around. I hope he changes for the better. I don’t mind a little yandere, but it’s weird when it starts out obsessive instead of getting there over time.
