32 What a Sharp Girl
"Then what does it take for my d*mn Space Element to show up?" Su Luo was confused and frustrated at the same time.
Could it mean that she might not ever be able to practice if her Space Element never appeared?
It seemed like good fortune was always followed by disaster. A person wouldn't ever truly be blessed with great luck.
Nangong Liuyun chuckled mischievously. He sounded sneaky and cunning as he said, "That is not too difficult, yet not too easy either."
"Spare me the suspense. "Su Luo's eyebrows arched slightly.
"You have to have three objects in order to initiate your Space Element. The first is the Space Grass, the second is the Heavenly Spirit Water, and the third is Dragon's Blood. You should be able to access your Space Element after having all of these things ready." Nangong Liuyun's dark pupils reflected a wicked glow, brilliant and devilish.
Su Luo's thin brows knitted tightly together. "What are they? Where do I find them?"
How could Su Luo, a concubine-born daughter who wasn't favored by anyone, manage to find the Space Grass, Dragon's Blood, and whatnot?
"I already brought the Space Grass here. Regarding the Dragon's Blood, there are Armored Ridgeback Dragons inside the Sunset Mountain. We can find a time to go slaughter a dragon. As for the Heavenly Spirit Water." Nangong Liuyun paused for a moment and cracked a playful smile. He gave her a charming and profound look as he said, "It's actually close at hand."
"Oh? Are you saying it's inside the Su Mansion?" She had no favorable impression of the Su Mansion whatsoever. However, it would be quite simple and convenient if the Heavenly Spirit Water were indeed there.
Nangong Liuyun wore a roguish and enchanting grin as he waved a fan he held. He looked dashing and handsome. "What a smart girl. You got it right on the first guess. The Heavenly Spirit Water is, in fact, in your mansion. It is also the most treasured piece in the Su Mansion."
"It's really here? Then what are we waiting for? There is no time to lose." Su Luo's eyes lit up as she smiled.
Since it was the highlight of the Su family collection, she would happily dispense with formalities and kindly accept the gift.
"You're going to go ask your father for it?" Nangong Liuyun's beautiful eyes concealed his wickedness and charm.
A gentle breeze ruffled Su Luo's shiny black hair. Her demeanor seemed meek and mild, yet her eyes and voice were cold as usual. "Ask? How am I going to ask? We'll steal it, of course."
"Actually, you don't have to do that. You could just tell your father the truth. Tell him you're Wood-Fire Double-Talented and a future Space mage on top of that. The news will naturally exhilarate him. Then wouldn't he immediately give you the Heavenly Spirit Water?"
"Are you really that stupid, or are you just pretending?" Su Luo scolded him bluntly. "I don't know if you're actually an idiot, but I'm definitely not. My father is callous and vicious, egocentric, and self-serving. Let's put aside whether he would believe me not, so what if he did? In his mind, I would merely be a tool to trade for certain benefits. As long as someone offered an attractive price, he would sell me in a heartbeat. Besides, Nangong Liuyun, don't try to trick me into doing anything. It's too dull."
"What a sharp girl." Nangong Liuyun uttered a soft chuckle. His voice was pleasant, lazy, and melodic. He tapped Su Luo's smooth forehead gently with the folding fan.
Su Luo didn't disappoint him.
If it were any other girl, the first thing she would do after being bullied for a dozen years would be to widely publicize her unparalleled talent.
Su Luo, however, was different.
Nangong Liuyun was confident that, with her tenacity and self-control, she would go far in the future.
