His arms were as strong as vice grips. He squeezed Su Luo so tight that she couldn't move.
"Let me go... mm..." As Su Luo opened her mouth, the wine that Nangong Liuyun had drunk earlier poured into it.
Drops of red wine rolled down her chin.
Nangong Liuyun had tremendous strength. He didn't budge no matter how hard Su Luo struggled.
Su Luo was puny and frail compared to him.
His passionate kiss was forceful and domineering.
Su Luo's mind went blank. She lost the ability to think straight.
Nangong Liuyun forced Su Luo to swallow the wine. Another gentle kiss landed on her lips, soft as a feather.
Their two gorgeous faces were a hairs width apart. They were so close that they could feel the warmth of each other's breath.
Everything around was silent.
Everything except for the sound of wind shrieking past as the Dragon Scale Horse ran.
Nangong Liuyun affectionately held Su Luo's small face in his hands and studied her features carefully. His eyes, dark like obsidian, were glowing with passion and desire.
The lust and intimacy in his eyes made Su Luo feel uneasy. It reminded Su Luo of the painful betrayal from her previous life.
Su Luo turned her head away coldly, but Nangong Liuyun wouldn't let her go that easily. His cream-colored, slender fingers gripped her smooth, pointed chin. He asked her slowly in a voice unusually solemn, "Do you hate me?"
His eyes were fixed tightly on her face, so he didn't miss the animosity and sadness that flashed in her eyes.
The mood turned sour immediately.
Su Luo pushed him away slowly. She looked at the distant sky through the half-opened curtains.
"Do you really hate me?" Nangong Liuyun asked again insistently, standing behind her.
Did she really hate him? Su Luo examined her own feelings. There was no doubt that Nangong Liuyun had helped her a great deal ever since she had woken up in this world. Although he could be handsy and cheeky at times, Su Luo was sure he was only being playful and that he didn't harbor any malicious intentions.
However, how could she tell him about her previous life in modern times?
The unfortunate development on the cliff, the person who had killed her and broken her heart; she honestly didn't think she could bring up again.
A twinge of sorrow crept into Su Luo's heart. She replied impassively, "My regret has nothing to do with you. Stop asking."
Unexpectedly, her response was like a fuse that ignited Nangong Liuyun's anger.
His hand pulled Su Luo to him forcefully, and he clutched her chin to force her to look him in his eyes. He asked her viciously, "If your regret has nothing to do with me, then with whom?"
He didn't comprehend the sorrow darted across her face. However, he was confident that it was definitely not good news for him.
Nangong Liuyun's reaction had stirred up Su Luo's courage and pride. She faced Nangong Liuyun with an adamant expression and said, "Nangong Liuyun, who are you to me? Don't you think you're overreaching here by sticking your nose in my business?"
Nangong Liuyun laughed rather than growing angry. His star-like eyes were as cold as ice. He held onto her chin and said clearly, "You're my wife. That will never change!"
"Have I ever said yes?" Su Luo raised her skinny eyebrows. Her eyes reflected a mocking smile.
Su Luo's long hair was blowing in the wind. She seemed emotionless, a hollow and mirthless smile on her face. Her eyes were cold and impenetrable.
Nangong Liuyun was stunned for a moment. Then his icy eyes darkened, and the corners of his mouth curled up. He stared at Su Luo confidently and said with a faint smile, "Su Luo, you must be Nangong Liuyun's wife in this life!"
"Then let's wait and see. Let's see how this will end eventually." Su Luo's glistening eyes watched him, cold and steady.
The two looked at each other without speaking for a long time. Everything was silent around the two of them!
