The streaks of light continued to wind tighter as the golden mane bear struggled in vain . Before long, its range of movement was reduced . It’s angry cries also quietened down until it finally stopped moving, not making any sound .
Crimson blood spread on the floor, staining it and making it extra bloody and eerie .
Everyone only saw what had happened within the streaks of light when they faded away .
The strong and muscular golden mane bear had shrunk . It was covered in wounds and had been twisted in an unnatural manner . The blood on the floor came from it .
Mu Hongyu turned and gagged after she took one look .
Cen Hu barely held on, but his pale face had lost its last signs of blood .
Only Gu Mingfeng fared a little better . The corners of his eyes just twitched a little when he saw the scene . His heart was put at ease . After settling the pressing problem, they could finally be considered safe .
But… more problems were brewing quietly .
He could not help but glance at Chu Liuyue . The latter was rather calm . Other than having a pale face from exhausting all her energy, Chu Liuyue’s eyes were peaceful and calm as if she did not mind the bloody mess before her . But then again, she was the one who created it .
If she did not create that Xuan formation to kill the golden mane bear, they might be dead there and then .
What kind of person is she? She can actually… Gu Mingfeng pursed his lips . He knew long ago that Chu Liuyue was different . However, he realized that she was far more complex than he had thought after the battle today .
Chu Liuyue could finally relax after confirming that the golden mane bear was dead . When she relaxed, the exhaustion caught up with her . She didn’t even have the energy to move a single finger .
She said to Gu Mingfeng, “It’s a pity that its body is ruined, but its pearl of essence should still be there . Go get it . ”
The latter shook his head . “You killed it . Therefore, it belongs to you . ”
If I weren’t too tired, I would have picked it up myself, Chu Liuyue thought to herself .
The blood ferret from before appeared again and skipped over to the golden mane bear’s carcass . It swiped its paw and easily found the pale-red pearl of essence . It then cleaned the pearl with its tail and returned to Chu Liuyue’s side . It presented the pearl of essence to Chu Liuyue with both paws as if presenting her a treasure . Its big eyes looked at Chu Liuyue without blinking as if waiting for her to praise it .
Chu Liuyue laughed . This little fellow runs faster than anyone when we’re in trouble and returns to acts coy when the danger is over . It’s definitely smart . However, it doesn’t draw my disdain .
Chu Liuyue took the item and thought about it, planning to give it to Mu Hongyu later . At this thought, she walked over to Mu Hongyu and helped the latter up . “Hongyu, are you okay?”
Mu Hongyu thought that she was doomed, but Chu Liuyue saved her at the last second . For that, she was relieved and grateful . While bearing the pain, she wiped the blood away from her face . “I’m fine! They’re just superficial injuries . I’ll be fine in no time . If it weren’t for you…”
“We could only win because you and Cen Hu held it back . ” Chu Liuyue shook her head, and her eyes landed on Mu Hongyu’s shoulder . It looked like it was fractured . “Sit down and have a rest . I’ll set your bone for you later . ”
Mu Hongyu only realized then that Chu Liuyue had seen right through her . She laughed bitterly . “Your eyes are too formidable . ”
Chu Liuyue did not reveal that she had taken Mu Hongyu’s pulse while she had helped the latter up .
But these external injuries weren’t the most crucial ones . Mu Hongyu’s most serious wounds were her internal injuries .
After helping Mu Hongyu settle down, Chu Liuyue went to check on Cen Hu . His injuries were worse than Mu Hongyu’s . He had been injured before, and things had only become worse . His left forearm was fractured, and he had broken two ribs . Things did not look good .
Thankfully, Cen Hu was rather hardy . He could really put up with the pain . He did not even make a single sound when Chu Liuyue set his bone . He even smiled when she dressed his wounds . “Liuyue, you’re amazing . Even a fourth-grade fiend is not your match! That Xuan formation was not a stage-two one, right? To think you said that you were only a stage-two Xuan Master… You would’ve fooled us if we didn’t see it with our own eyes!”
Chu Liuyue smiled . “I really am a stage-two Xuan Master . I would not have been able to execute it without Gu Mingfeng’s help . ”
Cen Hu felt that something was off, but he could not put his finger on it . “In any case, you’re really strong! I think you’re better than those arrogant Xuan Masters on campus!”
The entire Imperial City called her a good-for-nothing . Little did they know that she was a true prodigy .
Chu Liuyue paused when she heard that . She turned and looked behind her . She had almost forgotten about the other person, Gu Mingzhu .
Upon sensing Chu Liuyue looking at her, Gu Mingzhu shuddered as she felt fear build up in her . The earlier scene was too scary . Her stomach had churned for a long time, and she had finally managed to calm it down . However, her emotions were still in a jumble .
Chu Liuyue actually created a fourth-level Xuan formation! Didn’t they say that she was still new to this? Isn’t she a stage-two Xuan Master? How does one explain everything that just happened?!
“Wh-what do you want?” Gu Mingzhu stammered .
“Nothing much . I just think we should hold you accountable now that we’ve solved the matter,” said Chu Liuyue as she looked towards Gu Mingfeng with a smile . “Gu Mingfeng, do you mind watching her for me?”
Gu Mingzhu cried out sharply . “How dare you!”
Gu Mingfeng nodded without saying a word . He walked towards Gu Mingzhu and tied her up tightly with rope . Even though Gu Mingfeng was a stage-three Xuan Master, running for her life earlier had exhausted her . She was no match for a martial artist like Gu Mingfeng in her current state .
Her face was red from anger as she continued yelling . “Gu Mingfeng, are you crazy?! You know what kind of status you have! How dare you raise a hand against me! I’ll tell Master what happened when I get home, and he’ll make you pay for this!”
Gu Mingfeng ignored her as he expressionlessly tied her hands behind her .
“You disrespectful b*stard! You…”
A loud slap cut off her string of insults . Her face was slanted to the side as her left cheek quickly swelled up .
Gu Mingfeng looked at her coldly . “I never said that I don’t hit women . Besides, you’ve got to make sure you live long enough to complain if you want to do it!”
Gu Mingzhu stared at him . The silent, lowly teenager that she could bully at will had grown up and become a dangerous man!
Chu Liuyue walked over to Mu Hongyu . She pressed down on the latter’s shoulder as she carefully set the bone . Without looking up, she calmly said, “It’s not too late to get rid of her after she has repaid what she owes us . ”
