Chapter 482 – A matter of life and death (9)
Waiting until her strength matured to the extent of being able to exterminate the Li family; it was still very far away. Then, within this short amount of time, at least she had given him a promise.
“What are you smiling about?” Su Luo saw him smiling somewhat foolishly, and she suspiciously asked.
“Laughing about you, this girl, having bitten off more than you can chew, now, don’t even know if we can leave here or not.” Nangong Liuyun, in a very good mood, flicked her forehead.
“Ouch.” Su Luo covered her forehead and rolled her eyes at Nangong Liuyun. Immediately after, she also laughed, her dimples were as beautiful as flowers.
In the previous incarnation, when she was together with Yun Qi, he was always gentle and would never tease her. The methods of interaction between them was as ordinary as water.
Originally, she thought that this was the normal way people in love would interact, but now, with Nangong Liuyun’s appearance, he had toppled her way of thinking.
Being protected and lovingly spoiled by a person turned out to feel like this…unfamiliar and strange, but making a person’s heart burst with joy.
“What are you thinking about? With this kind of very happy appearance?” Nangong Liuyun sat by her side, his palm was placed around her Lingtai meridian (1), since the start, ready at any time to protect her body.
Su Luo laughingly smiled: “Obviously I’m laughing at you.”
“Laughing at this king?”
Su Luo nodded her head seriously: “It couldn’t have been easy for you to be born so gifted and obtain everything in this lifetime. Look at you, status, innate gift, martial arts, appearance…of these items, which ones the Gods weren’t partial to you, partial to the extent of being difficult to endure. But you are such a fool, saying you would abandon it all and then just abandoning it, going so far as to come to accompany me in throwing one’s life away. There wouldn’t be another person as foolish as you in this world.”
Nangong Liuyun gave two snorts of dissatisfaction: “If this king is a fool, then you are an idiot.”
“Nonsense.” Su Luo retorted back, unconvinced.
Nangong Liuyun, with a straight face, explained to her: “Obviously lacking the strength and still pretending to be powerful. Clearly, you knew Li Aotian was itching to kill you and you still deliberately drew him away. For this king, you set aside the chance to live. You tell me, if your variety of melon isn’t an idiot (2), then what kind of melon is it? Or is it stupid?”
Mentioning this matter, Nangong Liuyun’s heart was especially complicated, with anger and sweet happiness existing at the same time.
He was itching to grab Su Luo and very fiercely smack her butt a few times, giving her a memorable lesson about making her cherish herself more from now on.
But, it was also because it showed that she cared about him, that the corner of his mouth couldn’t help but tilt up from being in a very good mood.
Setting aside her chance to live for another person? Su Luo secretly stuck out her tongue. She wasn’t that great, okay? Clearly this was the best plan, because only when Nangong’s cultivation was restored would they have a chance to win.
Seeing Nangong Liuyun with that immensely proud, self-satisfied and elated appearance, she felt too embarrassed to expose the truth.
All around were golden-colored flames, like fire snakes dancing wildly about. That roasting hot temperature could almost transform a person into ashes.
In this kind of critical situation, the feelings between the two also heated up rapidly immediately after.
Su Luo felt somewhat unwell and pushed Nangong Liuyun: “I cannot move, you go search the surroundings for another way out.”
Nangong Liuyun was definitely not reassured about Su Luo, so he shook his head: “No, this king will carry you on his back, we will go together.”
Not long ago, he had already experienced the deep pain of nearly losing her, how could he now leave her alone by herself again in this cave of flames?
Before Su Luo could react, Nangong Liuyun had already placed her on his shoulders.
Resting on his strong, powerful back and experiencing the warmth his back, all of a sudden, from out of nowhere, Su Luo felt a trace of security.
It was as if resting on his back was similar to growing underneath a large tree beneath the blue sky. The road before her had him blocking the wind and protecting her from the rain. No matter what, she did not need to worry, did not need to be afraid of anything.
In the wake of him slowly walking forward, Su Luo’s mind instantly recalled a short paragraph. It was the words Kuang Kuang (3) wrote that Su Luo once saw in a magazine.
1) Lingtai meridian – This is the acupuncture point on your back between the sixth and seventh thoracic vertebrae of the spine.
2) idiot – This entire sentence is a play on the Chinese character 瓜. The character 瓜 refers to any type of melon or gourd, while the word for idiot and fool both contains this character. Idiot in Chinese is 呆瓜 while fool is 傻瓜 (my choice of translations since both have similar meaning). Su Luo called Nangong Liuyun a fool, then he called her an idiot. Finally Nangong Liuyun is asking her to choose whether she is an idiot or stupid. Stupid also has the melon character 蠢瓜.
3) Kuang Kuang – After a google search this name is of a Japanese writer and blogger. She wrote a book and I think it was translated into Chinese. So the paragraph was lifted from her book.
Yay! Welcome back! Thanks for the chapter~! 😃 Hope you had a fun birthday!

You can feel happy about the warmth of his back in the middle of boiling hot flames? (-＿-) orz
His back is a lot cooler than the boiling hot flames in the surrounding. So it may feel better 🙂
thanks a lot!
-raises banner with the word ‘feels’ on it and sways from side to side-
ah—! so adorable! nangong liuyun being happy with su luo’s promise! su luo thinking that their interactions are nice! the two of them mutually protecting each other!
ooh, but that line about nangong liuyun feeling deep pain, and refusing to ‘eave her again! feels, so many feels—!
that was a great chapter! totally my type! into my favourites list you go—!
Question, can she put NL into her space?
Nope somehow there is a rule against that!
I am loving the sweet relationship. Good choice by Su Loa not to mention the practical reason for her actions–just let him be happy. But that choice in itself shows she cares.
When does SL start training again? It’d be dumb if she fought SQ as a 3rd rank. I want her to destroy SQ not barely win like with LC
If the little dragon is still alright?
