Chapter 31: 31

“What?” Emperor Jiawen thought that he had misheard something and subconsciously asked again, “You want to enter Tian Lu Academy?”

Chu Liuyue nodded . “Yes . Tian Lu Academy recruits students annually in January, so I would like to ask Your Majesty to give me a chance . ”

Emperor Jiawen looked at her with a complicated gaze .  This Chu Liuyue is very strange . One may say that she is dumb, but she managed to solve all the problems perfectly from the beginning until now . One may say that she is smart, but she took the initiative to give up on the status of Crown Princess . She even says that she wants to enter Tian Lu Academy .  

It is impossible that she doesn’t know that Tian Lu Academy is the top academy in the entire Country Yao Chen . One has to be the best talent to enter . She does not even have a Yuan meridian . How will she accomplish it?

“This isn’t hard, but… Tian Lu Academy’s assessments are very difficult . Are you sure you want to go? You need to know that those old fellas won’t give you an easy way out just because of me . ”

Chu Liuyue smiled lightly . “I know that . I just want a chance to be assessed . ”

Emperor Jiawen stared at her and sighed after confirming that she was not joking . “Since you want it, I’ll grant you your wish . However, it’s all up to you if you can get in or not . ”

Chu Liuyue went on her knees and bowed . “Thank you, Your Majesty, for your kindness . ”

Emperor Jiawen waved his hands . “Okay . You must be tired today as well . You should return home to rest first . Chu Ning, accompany her and take care of her . ”

Chu Liuyue had no intention of staying any longer after settling the most important task, so she left with Chu Ning happily .

Only when the duo’s figures disappeared into the night sky outside the palace did the stiff and cold atmosphere in the palace start to warm up . However, nobody dared to say much after all that had happened that night .

A happy birthday party became suppressed and boring .

Rong Jin closed his eyes and rubbed his glabella . Logically speaking, he should be very relaxed after settling his marriage agreement with Chu Liuyue . However, his heart was still weighed down by a rock, making him very unhappy .

He had initially planned everything well, but he did not know how it ended up like this . He did not know how the people in the Imperial City would talk about him after today .

Although this wasn’t a big deal, the most important thing was that his father was most likely unhappy with him .

Chu Xianmin currently felt even worse than Rong Jin . She sat at her own seat with an ever-changing expression, but her entire body felt numb as her mind blanked .

Chu Liuyue’s words today had completely ruined her reputation . Who would care if these kinds of incidents were real or fake?

She did not expect that she would get herself into trouble instead of teaching Chu Liuyue a lesson .

All sorts of gazes and stares landed on her, making her very restless . She just wanted to dig a hole and hide in it .

“Ahem…” Rong Xiu coughed once again .

Emperor Jiawen knitted his brows . “Why is your cough getting worse?”

Rong Xiu waved his hands . “I’m not… ahem…”

Before he could finish his next sentence, he started coughing again, and his face became even paler .


Emperor Jiawen commanded determinedly, “Go back and rest now . It was so hard for you to get better at Mingyue Tianshan, but you’re already in this condition after coming back for a month . What will you do in the future? If your illness relapses, I’ll convict the people in your mansion . ”

Rong Xiu smiled helplessly and stood up .

Yan Qing, who was behind him, immediately helped him put on a coat .

“I’ll take my leave first . ” Rong Xiu then looked at Rong Jin . “Brother, I’ve already sent your birthday gift to your mansion . I’ll make up for the lack of company today . ”

Rong Jin forced a smile . “Seventh Brother, you’re too kind . Your health is very important . ”

Rong Xiu then turned and left .

After he left, Rong Jiu said that he had to handle military tasks and left as well .

The atmosphere that was originally weird became even more awkward and cold after the two people departed .

Before this, nobody thought that the prosperous Crown Prince’s birthday party would end up in this manner .

Rong Xiu walked through the palace doors and saw two people standing by Prince Li Mansion’s horse carriage . They were Chu Liuyue and Chu Ning .

He raised his brows lightly and walked over . “Officer Chu, Big Chu Missy, why are you here?”

Chu Ning held his hands in a fist and bowed solemnly . “Thank you, Prince Li, for your help just now . My daughter and I will definitely remember your kindness . ”

Rong Xiu’s eyes flashed slightly . “Officer Chu, you’re too kind . I didn’t help much today…”

Chu Ning shook his head repeatedly . “Apart from helping her get out of the awkward situation, you also saved her life previously . Without you, I don’t know what would happen to us… In the future, do let me know if you need me to do anything for you . ”

Previously? Save her life? Rong Xiu looked at Chu Liuyue and met with the warning glare in her sparkling black eyes . His lips curved up slightly; the corner of his eyes also looked happy . “Officer Chu, don’t mention it . It was nothing, really . I guess I’m just fated with her . ”


Chu Liuyue secretly heaved a sigh of relief . Previously, she lied to Chu Ning and said that Rong Xiu had saved her . She did not know that he would take it to heart . Now that Rong Xiu was here coincidentally, Chu Ning was determined to wait around and thank him in person .

She could not advise him otherwise and could only wait with him in the end .

Not long later, the other fellow actually continued cooperatively, “The sky is already dark . Let me send you two home . ”

Chu Liuyue immediately rejected it once she heard him . “No need!”

Who knew what he was thinking in his heart?

There was no free lunch in the world . The more he helped her, the more alert she was .

On the surface, this man looked as gentle as jade and was a humble gentleman . However, Chu Liuyue did not think that way .


Although she could not see through his eyes and guess his thoughts, her intuition told her that this was a very dangerous man . It was better to keep this type of person as far away as possible .

Chu Ning looked at her in disapproval . “Don’t be rude to Prince Li . ”

Chu Liuyue scrunched her nose .

Actually, Chu Ning also felt that this was inappropriate, but before he could speak, Rong Xiu continued, “It’s on my way back anyway . I’ll just bring you two along with me . Big Chu Missy must be exhausted from today’s events . ”

Chu Ning’s words of rejection got stuck in his throat . He was indeed worried about whether Yue’er got injured during her battle with the Golden Python .

After hesitating for a while, he finally spoke, “Then we’ll have to trouble you, Prince Li . ”

“Please . ”

Prince Li Mansion’s horse carriage was indeed very big and comfortable . There was more than enough space for the three of them .

Chu Liuyue sat beside Chu Ning and opposite Rong Xiu . Chu Liuyue was very alert at the start, but Rong Xiu closed his eyes once he boarded the carriage as if he was resting .

He sat there quietly and closed his pair of deep, seductive eyes . His features—which were like carvings on jade—looked especially gentle under the warm light .

Chu Liuyue took one look at him and immediately retrieved her gaze .

They went all the way to the Chu family’s estate without a word .

Chu Ning got off the carriage first .

Just as Chu Liuyue was about to descend, a hand pulled her back .

The hand was slightly cold, but a weird sensation shot into her heart from his hand .

Chu Liuyue was about to make a move, but a soft, gentle, and low voice sounded . “Remember to return me the item . ”


Chu Liuyue was stunned . When she turned around, Rong Xiu had already let go of her hand and closed his eyes as if nothing had happened .

She pressed her lips against each other tightly . “How petty . ”
