Jiang Zhiyuan failed!
Yu Mo raised his hand and wrote something down: “Fairy Water Mound’s Jiang Zhiyuan: 43 moves!”
The number of moves she made was the highest compared to the previous women, but she still didn’t manage to make it to the end and force Rong Xiu to make a move.
The chess pieces on the chessboard instantly disappeared, and the chessboard recovered its previous appearance.
The palace was silent as the crowd’s gazes darted back and forth between that chessboard and Jiang Zhiyuan.
Jiang Zhiyuan felt like there were many knives on her back, and her face burned with fire. She looked at the chessboard before her in disbelief. How did this happen? This chessboard is so difficult. If it were someone else, they might not even make it to whereI did. Therefore, I was very confident that the game had already reached a step where Rong Xiu had to make a
No! This also means that someone has made more moves than me on this chessboardl But who could that person be? Is it the clan leader or 36 Respected Elder Ming? Jiang Zhiyuan couldn’t guess.
“It’s okay, Zhiyuan; you’re already first. Don’t think so much about the others first,” comforted Jiang Hetian.
A father knows his daughter best.
Jiang Hetian naturally knew that his daughter was currently very upset and aggrieved. She should ve wanted Rong Xiu to take action so that the two of them could play chess together. Jiang Zhiyuan took a deep breath in and forced a smile. “Thank you, Father. I
Ijust feel slightly regretful. Ive long known that Rong Xiu is extremely good at playing chess, but ir’s a pity that Ive never properly played chess with him before. Most of the time, he played with the clan leader, and I watched from the side. Every time I was tempted from watching and wanted to play chess with him to find out the eventual winner, he always used all sorts of reasons to reject me. Originally, I thought that I could use todays chance to.
Jiang Hetian softly comforted her. “His Highness is very good at this. You’re still a distance away from him today. When you go to the Sky-Cloud Empire in the future, you can just learn more from him.”
Shyness instantly appeared in Jiang Zhiyuan’s indignant and aggrieved expression. Then, she nodded seriously. “Mm, I know.”
Chu Liuyue-who was originally holding her chin and watching all of this lazily -raised her brows. Hm? In the future? Come to the Sky-Cloud Empire? Leam more from His Highness?
Chu Liuyue curled her lips into a smile. Did he plan out everything already?
Yan Qing looked at the crowd. “Is there anyone else who wants to try?
It was silent.
“Hehe. Officer Yan Qing, most of the people who want to try have already goneAlso, the best results so far have already been produced. I think this stage can end here, right?” Jiang Hetian said with a smile.
Even though he looked harmonious, his tone was persistent and didn’t give anyone space to retort.
“Hold on!” A clear and composed woman’s voice sounded and broke the silence.
Chu Liuyue’s lips curled up slightly with some smiling intent. “I also want to try.”
“You?” Jiang Hetian instinctively asked in retaliation as he looked at her doubtfully. Just now, everyone could tell how difficult this game was. If she still wants to come up now, won’t she be causing trouble for herself?
Chu Liuyue raised her brows. “What, can’t I do so?
“Yes, yes! Of course, you can!” Before Jiang Hetian could even say anything, 36 Respected Elder Ming–who was sitting above-hurriedly urged her. “Girlie, quickly go!
The crowd was speechless.
Chu Liuyue:” 36 Respected Elder Ming then seemed to realize that it wasa little inappropriate, so he hurriedly coughed and glanced at Rong Xiu. How is it? Fm doing well, right?!
Rong Xiu’s thin lips curled up, and there was a hint of a smile in his eyes.
Praises for you, Respected Elder.
Chu Liuyue turned around to glance at Dugu Mobao at the side. She squeezed his chubby face and lightly snorted. “Tll come back and discuss it with you later!
Dugu Mobao’s eyelids twitched, but for once, he wasn’t angry because his valuable face was squished.
Seeing his reaction, Chu Liuyue confimed her guesses. She collected her thoughts, tidied her clothes, and walked to the chessboard.
“Excuse me, please.” At the front, Chu Liuyue smiled politely.
Jiang Zhiyuan pressed her lips against each other and felt increasingly uncomfortable, but she still endured it forcefully and didn’t throw her temper.
Then, she walked back with Jiang Hetian.
However, her eyes had never moved away from Chu Liuyue. She wanted to see just how capable this woman was!
The gigantic chessboard glowed brightly!
Chu Liuyue stood with her hands behind her back and stood upright.
Her hair dropped down prettily, and she looked cute and cool in her sharp red outfit. Just by standing there, she could easily attract everyone’s attention.
She stared at the chessboard for a moment and placed a piece down!
A wave of red force flew out and instantly hit the chessboard!
The chessboard vibrated, and a golden chess piece instantly followed!
The sense of familiarity became increasingly strong!
Without hesitation, Chu Liuyue played another piece!
Very quickly, the crowd shockingly realized that she didn’t need to think when she was playing chess. Her actions were so fast that it sent a chill down one’s spine.
Sometimes, before the golden chess piece could even completely materialize on that chessboard, Chu Liuyue quickly followed!
“W-why is she so fast? Is she randomly playing? Quite a few people in the crowd started doubting her.
“I don’t think so. Can’t you see that the chessboard keeps on going too?
“She’s not randomly playing. She…is really good at this! Her thinking is efficient, and she is very sharp about changes… -I’m afraid that compared to Big Missy Jiang, she’s even more..”
At this point, Jiang Zhiyuan’s facial expression had long changed from the initial nonchalance to shock.
of course, she could tell that this Dugu Yue was better than her! The latter also wasn’t better by just a small margin!
Jiang Zhiyuan’s gaze was glued to that chessboard. In the beginning, she could still catch up. But as the game gradually became more complicated, she had to think for quite a while for every step.
However, that Dugu Yue didn’t stop at all!
Very quickly, Jiang Zhiyuan’s mind was in a mess.
“She’s going to make her 43rd move soon!” someone suddenly shouted. “If she makes another move, she’ll beat Big Missy Jiang!
Before the person could finish talking, Chu Liuyue flicked her wrist and landed another chess piece without hesitation!
Quite a few people suddenly took a deep breath in. Dugu Yue’s results have exceeded that of Jiang Zhiyuan!
“Oh my god! I really couldn’t tell that this Dugu Yue was so amazing! What step do you think she can get to?”
“I really can’t tell, but.. With her currently relaxed manner, she should be able to get His Highness to make a move, right”
“Even Big Missy Jiang couldn’t do it. If this Dugu Yue really does do it, then.”
Jiang Zhiyuan bit her lips tightly.
Chu Liuyue didn’t care about anything in her surroundings. She only focused on that gigantic chessboard and… Rong Xiu in front of her!
She made another move!
This time, no golden chess pieces appeared on the chessboard!
She looked up slightly at the man sitting above, and her sharp brows were slightly raised as she smiled brightly. “Your Highness, pleasel
