Chu Liuyue stared at the broken door dumbfoundedly . Just now… All I did was create a small ripple in the lake . Where did the explosive power come from?!
At this moment, a figure dashed in from outside . “Yue’er!”
Chu Liuyue instinctively followed the voice . It was Rong Xiu .
He had clearly rushed over when he heard the door breaking .
A thought flashed across her mind . My room is quite a distance from here; how did he rush over so quickly?
Rong Xiu glanced at the door before he hurried in . “Are you okay? What happened?” He realized that Chu Liuyue was okay the instant he stepped in . He was relieved, but he could not put his mind at ease .
Chu Liuyue paused . His usually lazy voice had hints of anxiety .
Upon closer inspection, one could see an indiscernible look of worry between his eyes . This was rare for Rong Xiu, who usually kept a poker face .
Chu Liuyue shook her head . “I’m fine . I just had a mishap while trying to form a pearl of essence . I didn’t control the force well . ”
“Really?” Rong Xiu looked at her suspiciously . How did forming a pearl of essence create such a big commotion?
Chu Liuyue knew that her explanation was a little preposterous . Not even a stage-three warrior could wield the amount of strength from just now!
But that was the truth…
Chu Liuyue rubbed her glabella helplessly . “I’m really fine . Please don’t worry, Your Highness . ”
Xue Xue rushed in from outside at this point and leaped over to Chu Liuyue’s side . It sniffed around as if afraid that something was wrong with Chu Liuyue .
Chu Liuyue was tickled by the fur at the top of its head, and she laughed . “Okay, okay! Xue Xue, I’m fine! I’m not hurt!”
Xue Xue blinked . When it saw that Chu Liuyue was really okay, it rubbed against her neck as if asking for attention .
Rong Xiu glanced at Xue Xue .
Xue Xue stiffened immediately . It roared deeply and obediently stepped aside, lying on the floor .
Chu Liuyue rubbed its head and looked at Rong Xiu . “Your Highness, how did you get here so quickly?” she asked strangely .
Xue Xue was a high-level fiend, and it was from the lion family, so it traveled fast . It must have started to make its way here when it heard the commotion, but it still lagged behind Rong Xiu .
“… Could it be that you were nearby?”
Rong Xiu could not help but laugh when he saw the girl’s gaze turn suspicious towards him . He pinched her face . “Don’t go imagining things . I was just taking a stroll since I couldn’t sleep . I headed over when I heard the commotion . ”
Chu Liuyue pulled his hand away, but she did not believe it .
Such a coincidence? Besides, even if you were taking a walk nearby, I still remember how fast you moved when you came over . This sickly Prince Li is masterful at hiding things…
Chu Liuyue did not continue asking and instead said, “Your Highness, it was a false alarm . Please, go back and rest . ”
Rong Xiu looked at the broken door pointedly . “You sure you won’t tear the place down if I leave?”
Chu Liuyue was speechless . There really is no way to explain this, is there?
“Just continue to form your pearl of essence . I’ll just be here, and I won’t get in your way . ” With that said, Rong Xiu sat down on a chair in the corner of the room . He picked up a book to read as if he did not intend to leave .
Chu Liuyue was speechless . One clearly can’t win if they fight this guy over the thickness of their skin?
Whatever! The lake is in my dantian . There is no way outsiders will know about it . The most they will feel is the explosive power contained within it . All that can be explained with a pearl of essence as well .
Hang on! A thought suddenly surged into Chu Liuyue’s mind, and she finally understood what the book page’s sentence meant . It was telling me to use it as the pearl of essence?!
