Chapter 465 - Gu Yue, Confess!
"Xie Xie and Lizhi, please keep what I'll be saying next in mind. The Purple Demon Eyes is an art that requires daily morning cultivation, and the cultivation is slow to say so the least. You can't rush it. I'll teach you two how to train it tomorrow morning," Tang Wulin said.
"Okay." Xie Xie brought a hand to his lips. "Then how about I teach you the Ghost Shadow Perplexing Step in the afternoon?"
"Sure!" Tang Wulin flashed a smile.
A distance away, Yue Zhengyu leaned against a wall, lips pursed and eyes glued to the trio. "They're so lucky. How come I never have such luck?"
"That's because you don't go out much. Have you hit rank 40 yet?" asked Yuanen Yehui, careful to keep a five meter space between them.
"Yeah. I did. Just wait until I get my second spirit soul… Hehe. You better watch out for your class president position."
Yuanen Yehui snickered.
Snorting, Yue Zhengyu continued, "We'll see once the next semester starts."
"Don't worry, I won't go easy on you. Don't blame me if you lose a limb or two."
Yue Zhengyu sent a heated glare her way but otherwise said nothing. He didn't have much confidence facing her.
The door to the dormitory shut behind Gu Yue with a muted click. As Ye Xinglan and Xue Xiaoyan had gone to receive their rewards from the Tang Sect, their shared room was now empty with her departure.
A bit of color returned to her pale cheeks as she breathed in the fresh air and stretched her limbs.
In the middle of practicing the Ghost Shadow Perplexing Step, Tang Wulin immediately noticed Gu Yue. Dropping everything he was doing, he broke into a jog toward her.
"How are you feeling? Doing any better?" Tang Wulin asked, concerned over her slower recovery rate.
"Yeah. A bit. Don't worry about me. I just need some more time," Gu Yue said. If Tang Wulin weren't right in front of her, he would have missed her words.
He cracked a small smile, hesitating before asking, "Can we go to your place for a minute? There's something I want to talk to you about."
"Hm?" Gu Yue tilted her head slightly, peering at him through thick lashes. Eyes bright and wide. But she nodded a moment later. "Okay. Come on then."
Watching from a distance, Xie Xie whistled and blew kisses at the couple. Standing nearby was Yuanen Yehui, who curled her lip in disgust. She made for her room without looking back.
As soon as Tang Wulin stepped into the girls' room, he was submerged in pink and softness. The beds were made and the desks stood free of clutter. He rubbed a fingertip across a window pane and stared at the clean, dust-free patch of skin. Totally different from the boys' room.
Gu Yue sat on her bed then pointed at a chair for Tang Wulin.
Although they were together every day for classes, the two rarely had time to talk alone. Especially since she at times would give him the cold shoulder.
"What do you want to talk about?" The object of her affections sitting so near, Gu Yue's heart raced.
Despite being only fourteen, Tang Wulin already carried the makings of a man, and they were becoming more and more apparent each day. Standing over 170 centimeters, he had a muscular but lean build. His face, handsome and bright, combined with large eyes framed by long lashes, brought most girls to a blush. But not Gu Yue. She was different. She was used to looking at those appealing features.
"Gu Yue, confess!" Tang Wulin demanded.
