Chapter 433 – A new lease on life (5)
However, Su Luo waited for quite a while, seeing that Nangong Liuyun was still sitting there neatly, she couldn’t help but frown. Afterwards, she carefully scanned his complexion.
Before, she was too busy being mad that she didn’t get a good look. Now that she looked at him carefully, she found that his complexion was not in a good condition. He was overly pale.
Could it have anything to do with her vision being obstructed by the layer of ice? Su Luo thought with some doubts.
After another long period had passed, Nangong Liuyun finally got up.
His palm flipped over with a flying gesture, continuously forming, one after another, fiery red-colored imprints. Specks of fiery blaze landed on the ice sculpture, letting the flames melt the layer of ice.
Su Luo felt it was somewhat strange.
Normally, according to Nangong Liuyun’s strength, he shouldn’t have just produced such small flames.
He was much stronger compared to Li Aotian, Li Aotian was sixth rank while he was seventh rank. Li Aotian’s Heavenly Dance of Snowfall, as far as he was concerned, would only take a minute to undo.
But now, it had been more than an hour, Nangong Liuyun, the little flames he condensed out were still burning….making the length of time it persisted in undoing the ice excessively long.
This night…In the end, what happened to his body?
Could it be that just a moment ago when he was talking to her, it was for the purpose of stalling for time in order to restore the vital energy in his body?
There was a myriad of thoughts in Su Luo’s mind, with many huge question marks on top of her forehead. However now, she was frozen over, no matter how you said it, she couldn’t ask. She had no other choice but to wait patiently, to wait until she got out to ask.
Approximately another hour passed, suddenly, a thread of blood flowed out of the corner of Nangong Liuyun’s mouth.
Su Luo’s mind was abruptly jolted!
Nangong Liuyun was certainly injured! Otherwise, breaking a layer of ice wouldn’t injure him in this way.
She shouted loudly for Nangong Liuyun to stop, even though her voice couldn’t be transmitted out, but she still kept on mouthing the words.
Nangong Liuyun wiped away the blood at the corner of his mouth and only smiled faintly while saying one sentence: “If I was to stop now, the agreement from a moment ago would be invalid.”
Su Luo was immediately anxious.
Nangong Liuyun’s condition right now was very bad, even his body was tottering on the verge of collapse, so weak as to make a person’s heart ache in distress.
Even though all along, he had stubbornly propped himself up, but his hands trembled slightly, while cold sweat tumbled down drop by drop.
Again, another hour passed, at last, the piece of ice layer finally broke off.
All of a sudden, Su Luo’s body regained its freedom.
When Nangong Liuyun saw Su Luo come out, he finally let out a breath of relief, his Luo girl had finally come out.
Nangong Liuyun had been full of dread for a period of time, and the soles of his feet staggered slightly. Su Luo threw herself at him, wanting to support him, but now, her limbs were still stiff, and as a result, the both of them tumbled down onto the sandy shore.
Now, Nangong Liuyun could not continue to suppress it, and he uttered heavy coughs.
Along with the sound of coughing, fresh blood continuously spilled out of his mouth.
One mouthful after another, the blood sprayed out as if he didn’t want to live.
Upon seeing this, Su Luo’s heart was exceedingly distressed, but she was completely clueless and could only anxiously wait by his side.
With great difficulty, she waited for him to finish throwing up blood, and only now was Su Luo able to support him up. Her eyes were full of heartache, on one hand helping him to wipe clean the bloodstain at the corner of his mouth, while also trying to stop him: “I know that right now, you have a lot you want to say, but the timing is wrong. First, don’t speak, you should properly rest and adjust your body.”
Nangong Liuyun’s phoenix eyes blurred, he was half-unconscious and half-awake. He only looked at Su Luo while smiling, and struggled to talk: “You…promised…”
This man, even at this moment, was still concerned about that promise! Even so obviously, when he was about to die!
Su Luo was so infuriated that she glared at him: “Got it, the things I, Su Luo, promised, I will absolutely not renege on. Isn’t it just three months? I’ve memorized it all.”
This matter of swindling her into an agreement of three months of commitment, she absolutely would demand this debt back.
first and nice chapter
Thanks for the new chapter!
thanks a lot—!
ah, poor nangong liuyun! and he still cares about the promise, ahaha! cute!
I like Nangong Liuyun. I know a lot of readers get annoyed with him but I like this boy. His obsession with SL appears unhealthy but he hasn’t done anything directly that has harmed SL while in his goal to obtain her. So far he’s just been putting his life at risk for her and sometimes it may have come off as reckless what he’s done. He hasn’t cheated on her either and I think it’s ok that he tricks her sometimes. I’ll complain the day he cheats on her or does something equally shitty. Why did I write this? Well shucks if I know.
He directly choked her not to long ago.
He purposely endangered himself to guilt trip her.
That is just two that stuck out to me. Nangong Liuyun is a terrible person, who kills people whenever he wishes.
He obviously has a charismatic side but his attitude towards his servants/random people and their reactions show a much darker story.
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.
I don’t think Nangong Liuyun could be judged based on modern day male… Growing up in the imperial palace where everyone is trying to kill you or harm you no wonder he become a psycho who can’t bear being touched… I think I like Nangong Liuyun even more because he will overcomes this to have dream qualities of a boyfriend… Of course it takes a lot of chapters (but not that long in this world). I like redeemable characters 🙂
There is obviously reasons why a he turned out like this but it doesn’t excuse his actions.
I still like him more then dislike him though. I just dislike when people try to defend his current actions. He isn’t a nice person right now no matter how dreamy he becomes later.
I’d like to point out that the main reason SL doesn’t just kill everyone she dislikes is because she’s not strong enough to, otherwise she probably would. Honestly she’s just as terrible a person as NL.
Thanks for the chapter!
