Chapter 1160: Old People Come Back
Due to her two earlier choices, Chu Liuyue was rather uneasy when she pushed open the door to enter. But after she went in, she realized that things were very different from what she had imagined.
This was because there was actually a square room before her. This room wasn’t very big, but it could definitely fit a few dozen people.
The four walls had patterns of black and white intersecting.
Chu Liuyue glanced at it. Other than forcefully recognizing that the academy’s totem seemed to be printed on the upper-left-hand corner of one wall, she didn’t understand the other patterns at all.
Overall, the lines looked messy and disorganized as if someone randomly drew on a piece of paper. Other than that, there was nothing at all.
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows and walked to the middle.
The door behind her closed automatically.
Chu Liuyue didn’t care about it. No matter what, she had to stay here for ten days.
After surveying the surroundings closely and realizing that there was nothing strange about this place, Chu Liuyue swiftly sat down, closed her eyes, and started cultivating. Not bad. Although there aren’t any windows here, it isn’t stuffy, and it’s filled with rich Heaven and Earth Force like the outside. Since I can’t do anything here, I should just cultivate.
Just as she was about to close her eyes and begin—
Something small suddenly landed on the ground—it was Tuan Zi.
Seeing the wet Tuan Zi in front of her, Chu Liuyue was dazed for a moment. I had already called Tuan Zi back earlier, and I didn’t call for it just now, so why did it come out on its own?
“Tuan Zi?” she called out.
Tuan Zi crazily flapped its wings as if it wanted to shake the water away to make itself dry.
Chu Liuyue stared at it for a while and couldn’t help but remind, “Tuan Zi, you can use your fire to dry yourself.”
Tuan Zi paused in its actions and looked at her with much desire.
Chu Liuyue’s eyes suddenly shrunk. This was because a ray of silver color quickly flashed across Tuan Zi’s eyes! That is lightning?! I knew that Tuan Zi took the chance to absorb quite a few bolts of lightning to unleash its bloodline power, but I didn’t expect such a scene to appear.
“Tuan Zi, are you okay?”
Tuan Zi shook its head and started to shake its wings crazily.
“There are many bolts of lightning swimming around in its body, but it can’t absorb them fully. If it suddenly summons fire now and burns, it might not even be able to control it,” explained the three-eyed legendary eagle coldly.
Chu Liuyue then understood as she watched Tuan Zi diligently moving on the ground, and the corners of her lips twitched slightly. “Then… How long does it need before it can fully absorb this strength?”
“It depends on itself. If it’s fast, one day. If it’s slow… three days.”
Chu Liuyue heaved a sigh of relief.
“This was because it took action when the lightning’s strength was at its greatest, so it absorbed quite a bit. But if it wants to unleash its bloodline power fully, you still need to do what I previously said.”
It was fine if it didn’t mention this, but Chu Liuyue felt her head ache once it did. I overstayed at Million Wine Mountain for the first time and was dragged to be locked up here for ten days. If it really stays there for a month…
Chu Liuyue felt that she could be expelled.
As if guessing Chu Liuyue’s thoughts, the legendary three-eyed eagle lightly said, “It’ll be fine if you don’t get discovered.”
Chu Liuyue: “…Do I look like someone who has such capabilities?”
Million Wine Mountain is guarded strictly. How am I supposed to go there continuously for a month without being discovered? Chu Liuyue looked at Tuan Zi and suddenly felt that it was doing fine. Didn’t it beat Liu Yintong’s red-tailed phoenix previously?!
“Of course, you do.” The legendary three-eyed eagle gave an affirmative reply.
Chu Liuyue was stumped. At that moment, she didn’t know if she should be happy that the legendary three-eyed eagle actually thought highly of her or if she should be worried about how to complete this ridiculous task.
She shook her head and chose to suppress her thoughts.
She closed her eyes lightly, breathed in, and started absorbing the surrounding Heaven and Earth Force.
Waves of force gathered and entered her body. This force spread across all her limbs and finally gathered within her dantian.
Time trickled past, and Chu Liuyue’s surrounding aura strengthened continuously. However, she didn’t know that the walls around her were also silently changing.
The seemingly disorganized lines seemed to be dragged by some sort of strength as they gradually moved and silently became weird patterns.
With the movement of these lines, Chu Liuyue’s surrounding space seemed to move as well. The layers of suppression rapidly overlapped amidst this movement.
At this point, Chu Liuyue had her eyes tightly shut and was completely focused on cultivation.
If she opened her eyes at this moment, she would realize that there were black cracks in the contorted space.
The terrifying ripples gradually and determinedly went toward her like waves! But just as the ripples were about to hit Chu Liuyue, they suddenly stopped.
Then, the force took a step forward. Almost at the same time, Chu Liuyue’s body glowed with a golden light—pure gold armor!
Detecting this light and aura, the aura that the force had gathered disappeared immediately!
Then, the force turned around, and the surrounding strength seemed to be affected. It gradually removed its terrifying suppression and surrounded Chu Liuyue in a seemingly doting and longing manner.
