Zhong Xun shook his head. “I only came to the academy two years ago, so I didn’t see that person. I heard that she left after staying in the academy for only half a year, but even now, there are still many rumors
regarding her spreading around the academy.”
He grunted. “I heard that she’s a rare all-rounder.”
“Yeah. Other than the warrior, Xuan Master, and heavenly doctor aspects, she’s also good at Armory Refinement! And her abilities in all the aspects are one of the top! I heard that when she first came, there were at
least ten people who fought to be her mentor. In the end, there was no choice but to let the director personally accept her as his disciple. That’s the first disciple the director had in a hundred years.”
Chu Liuyue raised her brows slightly. He’s even good at Armory Refinement… He’s indeed deserving of the reputation of an all-rounder. What kind of talent have the elders in Ling Xiao Academy not seen? It shows just
how outstanding that person was for them to behave in this manner.
“It’s a pity she suddenly disappeared after half a year and never returned since. From then onward, the elders in the academy have never brought up her name, as if she never existed. Gradually, everyone stopped
bringing her up.” Zhong Xun sighed. “The reason why I’ve heard of these things is that I accidentally barged into her medicinal garden before, and I found out after a senior sister reminded me.”
“Medicinal garden?” Chu Liuyue found it weird. “Didn’t they say that the herbs everyone uses in the academy are from Medicinal Valley?”
Ling Xiao Academy was very spacious, and the mountains were continuous. In the heavenly doctor’s region was an area of land specifically used for planting herbs, and it was called Medicinal Valley.
With heaven and earth’s nourishment over a million years, Medicinal Valley became a treasured land to plant all sorts of precious herbs and ingredients. Most of the herbs in the academy were produced from there.
“Oh, the director specifically dug out an area of Medicinal Valley to be her personal medicinal garden. When she refined medicine, she could only use the herbs that came from her garden.”
“Why is this so? If he’s an all-rounder, he definitely needs a lot of herbs when she’s producing pills. If you do this, won’t it impede his heavenly doctor journey?”
Even if they dug out the weeds, it would be really slow to grow her own herbs! One had to know that many herbs needed a hundred or even a thousand years to reach sufficient efficacy.
“That’s not true. She could also use the herbs from Medicinal Valley, but she needed to write out a list beforehand and let the elder in charge of Medicinal Valley vet it. If the elder agreed, she could use them. If not,
hu Liuyue couldn’t help but laugh. “Why is there such a strange rule?”
hong Xun paused. “That’s because she used up the hundreds of top herbs in Medicinal Valley after a month of coming to the academy.”
hu Liuyue: “…I see.”
This shows that that person is indeed quite capable… Chu Liuyue thought for a moment and smiled lazily. “He caused so much trouble. The director and elder never hit him?”
hong Xun glanced at her strangely. “The seniors are all very respectable. How can they hit a lady?”
hu Liuyue: “…She’s a lady?!”
didn’t say it’s a man, right?” asked Zhong Xun in return.
hu Liuyue smiled shyly. “Haha… When I figured out how tor—how amazing she is, instinctively thought in that manner..”
“I heard that the director and elders doted on her very much back then, especially Elder Hua Feng. He personally taught her Xuan formations, but for some reason, she disappeared in the end, and nobody talked about
“Junior Brother Chu Yue, I’ve told you so much today; just take it as us having a personal conversation. You don’t have to take it to heart, and as for others—”
“Senior Brother Zhong Xun, don’t worry. I know what I can say and do,” said Chu Liuyue with a smile.
Chu Yue is a smart person and understands with a slight hint. I don’t need to worry about him much. Zhong Xun heaved a sigh of relief. “That’s good. You don’t have to think too much about the rest for the time being.
Just prepare yourself and handle the assessment tomorrow to get a mentor. Previously, I roughly told you about the elders. Do you know who you want?”
Chu Liuyue nodded.
Zhong Xun felt at ease as he smiled and said, “Then, I’ll wait for you to amaze me tomorrow, Junior Brother Chu Yue!”
Then, Chu Liuyue followed Zhong Xun back to their living area.
Like the other peaks, there were many individual houses sitting around. Zhong Xun stayed in one of them.
Not far away from his residence was an empty house, and Chu Liuyue now stayed there.
After bidding Zhong Xun farewell, Chu Liuyue walked into the house.
I should be able to see the others in the academy tomorrow… Chu Liuyue sat cross-legged, closed her eyes, and calmed herself down to cultivate.
On the other side, after Elder Wan Zheng was done settling the matter on this end, he returned to Qing Ming Square.
Above the clean and tidy square, the white jade stone reflected a faint light. One could vaguely see some flickering light on it.
ff there was a capable Xuan Master, they would be able to see the countless complicated, silently intersecting and overlapping Xuan formations within the light.
Elder Wan Zheng walked to Dong Huang Clock Tower.
Below Dong Huang Clock Tower was a heavy platform with a total of four doors. Every door faced toward the north, south, east, and west respectively.
Above the copper doors was a lively floating statue.
Elder Wan Zheng walked to one of the doors, took out his green plaque, and placed it on the door.
The door opened, and there was actually a living room within!
He stepped in.
“If it weren’t this urgent, we wouldn’t have called you back so anxiously.” Elder Wan Zheng walked in and quickly heard the familiar voice coming from the front.
“Everyone here is of certain importance to all the distinguished clans and families. To have you make time to come over is really—”
“Elder, you’re speaking too formally. We’re all the academy’s students. Now that the academy has trouble, we’ll definitely do our best to help.” A young man’s voice sounded. “But may I know what exactly caused the
elders to be so worried? For the past few days, the elders didn’t want to speak in detail. Now that we’re all gathered together, can you finally tell us?”
Elder Wan Zheng walked in from the dark.
Inside the room, the candle lights burned.
There were about 20 people here. Amongst them were a few elders who had the most distinguished status in Ling Xiao Academy. The remaining dozen or so people mostly looked rather young and had different auras.
They came as the academy had wanted their help, and they were all previous students from the academy and were all from top aristocratic families.
At this point, the crowd had split into two sides, and the atmosphere was a little strange.
Hearing the commotion, the crowd turned around to take a look.
Elder Wan Zheng’s expression was solemn. “I was handling some stuff earlier. I didn’t come late, right?”
“Of course not. You came right on time,” the young man who spoke earlier laughed and said.
“The Sky-Cloud Empire’s His Grace just arrived, and everyone was waiting for him, so we haven’t said anything yet.”.
