Nangong Liuyun's deep, beautiful eyes stared at Su Luo. He didn't speak for a long time.
His mouth opened, then closed again. It wasn't until a while later that he slowly asked another question. "Have you seen a ring? A ring with a dragon engraved on the surface?"
"The Dragon's Ring?" Su Luo immediately cried out in surprise.
Of course she had seen the Dragon's Ring. How could she ever forget it?
In her previous life, finding the Dragon's Ring was the last mission she carried out. She had also played Yun Qi for the last time because of the Dragon's Ring.
She had waved the brocade box in front of Yun Qi back then. Inside it was a wedding ring that she purchased for them to get married.
Unfortunately, however, Yun Qi had thought it was the Dragon's Ring and suffered a significant setback as a result of his negligence.
The moment before her suicide, Su Luo swallowed the Dragon's Ring then jumped off the cliff. The turbulent sea swelled and surged underneath the cliff.
She wouldn't give Yun Qi a chance to lay his hand on the Dragon's Ring even after she died.
Nonetheless, how did Nangong Liuyun know about the Dragon's Ring, and why had he asked her about it?
It was the ring that a client had spent an astonishing three billion dollars to search for at that time -- in what way was it magical?
Was it possible that the Dragon's Ring was also related to her consciousness traveling through time after death?
Su Luo was somewhat bewildered.
"You know about the Dragon's Ring?" A complicated look appeared on Nangong Liuyun's face. His eyes were fixed on Su Luo as though he was afraid of missing anything that might be revealed by her facial expression.
"I have seen it before. So what?" Su Luo replied calmly. She looked cautious.
It was impossible for her to take out the Dragon's Ring now.
Furthermore, they couldn't necessarily obtain the Dragon's Ring, even if they dissected her. After all, the body that swallowed the Dragon's Ring back then was not the one she was currently in.
"You swallowed it, didn't you?" A vague sense of excitement showed in Nangong Liuyun's eyes.
Su Luo hadn't expected Nangong Liuyun to hit the nail on the head so soon.
However, what was he thrilled about?
Su Luo looked at him warily and cracked a smile. Her arms were folded in front of her chest, and her eyes were bright and cold.
She watched him, smiling, yet didn't say a word.
"You don't have to act so nervous. Why would I ever harm you?" Nangong Liuyun chuckled while pinching her face gently.
The girl's cheeks were pink and tender. Her skin was smooth and creamy with a rosy-white complexion. Soft and moisturized, it felt amazing to the touch.
Nangong Liuyun's eyes sparkled playfully as he saw Su Luo frown. "Silly girl, what are you daydreaming about? The Dragon's Ring is protected by its spiritual consciousness. If it was swallowed by a host and they didn't explode and die on the spot, it means the Dragon's Ring has approved the host. Other people won't be able to retrieve the ring, even if they cut the host up, since the host and the Dragon's Ring have combined to become one."
Looking at Nangong Liuyun's grinning face, Su Luo shrugged. "I'm sorry. But vigilance and wariness are in my nature. I suppose it's hard to change."
"It's right to be vigilant and wary. You don't need to change at all. Besides, I happen to dig your cold and unapproachable manner." Nangong Liuyun poked her small, delicate nose affectionately.
"What is this masochistic streak of yours about?" Su Luo was beyond confused. Why would he reject women who threw themselves at him and insist on bothering her instead?
"It's you who doesn't realize how charming you are, silly girl." Nangong Liuyun's dark, inky eyes glistened. He held Su Luo's hand and said with a mischievous smile, "I will contentedly endure being tormented by you."
