Chapter 28 – At this moment, time seemed to have stopped
Su Luo looked at him and raised her eyebrow: “Then thank you for your hard work, but I hope you did not labor in vain.”
While smiling, Nangong Liuyun tapped her lovable and charming upright nose. “Girl, you’re really heartless. This king personally lifted his foot to fish around for information but your expression is still neither cold nor hot. How can this be allowed? Come, give this king a kiss first.”
While Nangong Liuyu was speaking he already took the opportunity to lean into her.
Not waiting for the touch of his soft lips, Su Luo immediately pushed him away: “Nangong Liuyun. You are the dignified, stately Prince Jin, the rumored legendary outstandingly talented genius. How can you be so shamefully? Aren’t you afraid of being made fun of if this were to be leaked out?”
“Silly girl, this king only treats you like this, so how could other people know?” Nangong Liuyun happily laughed while pinching Su Luo’s pink cheeks.
This girl’s fuming expression was so adorable and so lovable, that he had to pinch her again.
Su Luo glared at him unhappily. “Sit properly, stop trying to touch me.”
But Nangong Liuyun had been running around for three days, so he didn’t have a chance to get intimately close to her then, how could he so easily let go of such an opportunity? The corner of his mouth hooked into a nefarious smile as his enticingly enchanting deep and beautiful eyes captivatingly stared at Su Luo.
Su Luo’s face had a speechless expression. Suddenly, the corner of her eyes bent slightly as it flashed with cynicism. “Nangong Liuyun, is it because you didn’t find an explanation that you are purposefully trying to distract me?”
Goading him was really useful.
“Really, clever girls are no fun.” Nangong Liuyun sighed. Although he did not win an inch while wanting a mile, he also did not plan on releasing Su Luo. He suddenly became serious, looked at Su Luo cautiously, and slowly stressed each word. “Girl, tell me, recently, do you often get dizzy spells?”
Su Luo saw a never before seen serious expression on his face and her heart faintly trembled with fear. What’s going on? The formerly harmonious smiling expression had now become this deadpan. She was still not used to such an abrupt shift .
Su Luo thought about it, nodded her head, and answered: “Indeed, sometimes I get headaches.”
Not only that, she would also get very dizzy and sleepy to the point that she really wanted to go sleep… and after falling asleep, it was hard to wake her up.
Su Luo suddenly had a feeling that it was as if she might have a serious illness.
“Does your dantian feel bloated? Does it feel hard when you touch it?” Nangong Liuyun hastily followed up with another question.
(TL: Dantian – a point below the navel where one’s qi/energy pools at.)
But he had a strange and complicated expression on his face. Su Luo had never seen this earnest and serious concentration on his face. This serious expression also seem to hold a touch of hope in it.
His large hands that were holding Su Luo suddenly tightened. It was sufficient to prove that he was anxious in his heart.
Something that could make the legendary Prince Jin anxious to this extent should not be a trivial matter. Then, what exactly is happening to her body?
Su Luo’s heart felt as if it was being pressed down upon by heavy boulders. Suddenly, it felt somewhat suffocating.
But then, she thought about it again.
How much worse could it get? She was already a good-for-nothing. At worst, she just won’t be able to practice martial arts in the future.
Su Luo slowly exhaled her muddy feelings. She calmly looked at him, casually said. “Yes, sometimes I feel bloated, what does that mean?”
Previously, she just assumed that her menstrual cycle was about to begin so she did not pay it too much thought. After all, this body was about 15 years old, getting her period was normal.
But now, it seemed to be clear that they were not related.
Momentarily, their surroundings became really quiet, quiet to the degree that a falling leaf could be heard.
At this moment, time seemed to have stopped.
Even the surrounding air seemed to contain an apprehensive stiffness.
