Chapter 257 – Nangong Hao Arrives
Everyone was shocked when they heard An Chunchun’s words.
Everyone was staring at her.
Were these words something a 7 year old was capable of saying?
Does such a young child even know what marrying someone means?
An Chunchun noticed the crowd’s shocked faces so she once again said in a serious manner: “When I, I, I grow up, I will marry big brother Luo Tian so that he will never leave me. Right, it should be like this. This is something my mother told me so it should be correct, right? Big brother Luo Tian?”
Luo Tian responded with a forced smile since he didn’t know how to reply.
It was Fatty Lei who was the first to say something as he muttered: “We’re screwed this time; one table for mahjong isn’t enough anymore!”
Tang Tang and Qin Yue’er’s expressions turned cold as they glared at Feng Lei.
Feng Lei shrunk his head down and quickly escaped to the side. He was whistling calmly with an expression like he didn’t say a thing and had nothing to do with this.
“Chunchun, he’s a smelly scoundrel so you need to keep your distance from him in the future.” Tang Tang rolled her eyes at Luo Tian before saying this gently to An Chunchun.
Qin Yue’er directly glared at Luo Tian and said: “What have you been teaching her? It can’t be that you’re not even letting a 7 year old child off right? You are truly a huge scoundrel! Humph, like hell I’m going to battle 3000 rounds with you anymore. Good Chunchun, you definitely must keep your distance from him. He’s a big bad egg!”
“What the hell did I do? I didn’t even say a word and have become a big bad egg and a scoundrel. Can this place be anymore unreasonable?” Luo Tian was complaining in resentment to himself. When he looked at those towering twin peaks on Qin Yue’er, he then quickly complained out loud: “I remember you told me that once I’ve arrived at Heavenly Sword City, you would be clean and naked waiting for me on the bed. Could it be that you’re breaking your promise? A gentleman’s words cannot be unsaid!”
Qin Yue’er harrumphed before replying: “I did say that but I’m not a gentleman, I’m just a woman with a slightly larger chest. So what if I’m going to break my promise? You gonna bite me? Bite me if you have the guts!”
Qin Yue’er perked her chests up as she said that, raising them all the way in front of Luo Tian’s face. She then had an expression of “go ahead and bite it if you dare.”
Luo Tian really wanted to take a bite.
There were too many people here.
Luo Tian gave a long sigh in his heart before saying out loud: “Oh ye great earth and heavens, how can you treat me like this? What did I do wrong? I really didn’t do anything…”
“You’re not even letting a 7 year old girl off and you ask what you’ve done wrong?” Tang Tang said with an angry pout.
Qin Yue’er immediately sided with her and said: “That’s right! An Chunchun is so innocent, cute, and beautiful, so how could we not figure out what your heart is thinking? It’s definitely filthy to the max, humph!”
Luo Tian felt like there was no convincing explanation he could use to defend himself.
He had a sharp tongue and was considered a king in debates, but he couldn’t say a single word in retort right now. Luo Tian could only sigh in his heart and wonder what kind of world this was.
An Chunchun blinked her big eyes and said: “Why are you guys calling big brother Luo Tian a big bad egg and a smelly scoundrel yet you two still like him so much?”
“We would never like a big bad egg like him.” Qin Yue’er and Tang Tang both said in unison. But their faces had turned red, obviously showing they didn’t mean what they had said.
“Chunchun, your words are too good! Finally someone is speaking on my behalf!” Luo Tian almost felt like crying in happiness.
An Chunchun giggled happily and said: “Big brother Luo Tian, you are the world’s greatest man. Mother said that if I were to marry someone, I need to marry someone like that. Big brother Luo Tian, you’re going to marry me when I grow up right?”
It was so direct that Luo Tian didn’t know how to answer.
Was this a marriage proposal?
Luo Tian swallowed a few times and said with a smile: “When Chunchun gets older and knows more things, you will find the greatest man for yourself.”
An Chunchun then became a bit sad and muttered: “Big brother Luo Tian, I miss my mother.”
Luo Tian’s heart sank a bit as he patted An Chunchun’s head: “Good Chunchun, big brother Luo Tian will definitely help you find your mother.”
The time limit for the S-rank quest only had about a month left!
Within this month, he had to think of a way to rescue An Chunchun’s mother.
This was no longer merely a quest; it was something Luo Tian had to accomplish. He promised An Chunchun that he would allow her to lead a happy life. If he couldn’t rescue An Chunchun’s mother, most likely she would be unhappy for the rest of her life.
Dao Shang Alliance!
Luo Tian’s heart turned serious as he said internally: “No matter what price I have to pay, I have to save her from that place. Whether it’s an auction or outright robbing the place, I have to complete it with all my might. This was the promise I made to An Chunchun.”
It was a pinky promise!
At this moment…
Tang Jiu came over.
Behind him was an elderly person who looked rather dejected.
Upon looking at Luo Tian and sending out his senses, he determined Luo Tian was indeed at the Profound King 3rd rank. He couldn’t help wonder to himself: “How did he breakthrough to the Profound King 3rd rank already? Did he skip some levels? In less than half a month… even if he has a heaven defying talent, there’s still no way he can be this quick!”
He couldn’t figure it out.
Wang Jinke really couldn’t figure out what kind of existence was Luo Tian.
This was still a small matter because the thing that annoyed him the most the disappearance of 10 jars of Dragon Jade Wine. This was one of the top wines of all wines, and there it disappeared into a puff of smoke.
Luo Tian walked up to welcome him and cupped his hands: “Ninth brother!”
Tang Jiu couldn’t hold back his excitement and said: “Idol!”
Tang Tang’s ears perked up when he heard the word ‘idol’ so she stared at Luo Tian and asked: “You’re the idol of my ninth brother?”
Tang Jiu realized this was something he shouldn’t have said and helplessly forced a laughter. “Breaking through to the Profound King 3rd rank in half a month… any martial cultivator would see him as an idol right?”
“So that’s the case…”
Tang Tang lightly smiled and said: “I mistakenly thought you were ninth brother’s idol, humph! I’m going to marry a man like ninth brother’s idol while you’re not the type I’m going to marry, humph!”
Luo Tian laughed out bitterly and said: “I’m still rather afraid that your ninth brother’s idol is going to beat me until my teeth scatter all over the ground.”
Luo Tian was too lazy to continue bothering with Tang Tang. He cupped his fists and said seriously: “Thank you ninth brother for your assistance.”
Right after that…
Luo Tian turned towards Chen Donglai and made a 90 degree bow and said: “Thank you senior for secretly protecting An Chunchun. Thank you!”
Tang Jiu was stunned by this and said unhappily: “What are you doing? Back then…”
He wanted to say that Luo Tian had saved him at Dark Mountain Corpse City but upon realizing Tang Tang was still nearby, he managed to stop himself. He then changed his words: “You don’t have to be so overly polite to us since it’s something we should be doing.”
Chen Donglai lightly smiled and said: “It’s just a minor matter.”
At the same time…
He was looking up and down at Luo Tian and didn’t find anything strange about him. He could only continue wondering how Luo Tian could make breakthroughs so quickly.
Wang Jinke walked over as well and started circling around Luo Tian like he was examining him. He then said with a grin: “What did a kid like you eat while growing up? Your speed in making breakthroughs is a bit too fast, causing me to be in such a miserable situation. Sigh…”
As those words were being said…
A figure in white descended like an immortal.
