Chapter 1172: Release Him!
Liu Zi’an’s expression instantly stiffened, and he stared at Chu Liuyue in disbelief, feeling like he had misheard something. However, the smiling eyes glowing with cold intent reminded him silently that he didn’t!
“Y-you still want to continue?” Liu Zi’an heard his stammering voice. Perhaps it was because he was severely injured or something else, but his voice was very weak and floaty. Accompanied with his current pale face, he looked like a ghost.
Chu Liuyue smiled as if she were in a very good mood. “Yeah! Aren’t these the rules of a competition?”
A competition would only end if both parties agreed! If any party wanted to continue, the competition would not stop! As long as it didn’t cost one’s life, they could do anything they wanted!
Liu Zi’an’s eyelids harshly twitched. This Chu Yue is serious!
Boundless regret and hatred overwhelmed and drowned Liu Zi’an! I shouldn’t have challenged
Chu Yue! I could’vejust taught him a lesson and casually dueled according to the initial plan, yet
I went overboard and initiated a challenge! Actually… it was already wrong when I agreed to Liu Yintong’s request to teach Chu Yue a lesson!
However, saying all of this was useless now.
“Chu Yue, I’ve already surrendered! What else do you want?” Fear, worry, and anxiety filled Liu Zi’an’s heart, and he couldn’t help but explode! Since Chu Yue has no plans ofletting me off; there is no use and meaning in continuing to beg him!
“I admit that I’ve lost to you these two times! You’ve already won, yet you’re so relentless! What must I do for you to stop?!”
Shock surfaced in Chu Liuyue’s heart. “You’re the one who initiated this challenge. Why are you blaming me now that you’ve lost?”
As she spoke, she looked at Zhong Xun at the side and sincerely asked, “Senior Brother Zhong Xun, if one wins a challenge in the academy, do they need to apologize to the losing party?” “Pfft.” Suddenly, someone among the crowd couldn’t hold it in and laughed.
It was as if this laugh had flipped a switch as increasingly more people laughed, and it became a mess in the end.
“Hahahaha! That’s right! The person who wins needs to apologize to the losing one! Junior Brother Chu Yue, you’ve beaten up your senior brother to this state, so you must apologize to him properly! Hahaha!”
“Aren’t you going to help your Senior Brother Liu up? Apologizing to him isn’t enough. You still have to give a gift, right?”
“Our academy is indeed different—the losing party can still call the shots! I also want to challenge the few people on the Qing Yun Ranking and teach them a lesson!”
The crowd burst into laughter. All sorts of mockery and teasing mixed together, and every word was as clear as day.
Zhong Xun also laughed and raised his voice. “Junior Brother Chu Yue, don’t worry. You’ve won fair and square—we all saw it! The challenge rules have been passed on for many years, and they haven’t changed before. Just do whatever you want!”
In the academy, the strong were still respected in the end!
Liu Zi’an’s face was as pale as a ghost before it rapidly turned red. He really wanted to dig a hole and bury himself!
He had been in the academy for more than a year, but he had never felt so humiliated before!
He was utterly humiliated!
Chu Liuyue stepped forward. Her step was very light, but it felt like it weighed tons as it suppressed Liu Zi’an’s heart heavily!
Liu Zi’an breathed heavily, and every part of his body was in immense pain. His lips trembled slightly, but he couldn’t say anything anymore.
Chu Liuyue raised her hand.
“Wait!” A gentle voice suddenly came!
Chu Liuyue raised her head and looked in the direction of the voice.
The crowd instinctively split from the middle as one person gradually went forward.
It was Liu Yintong! Her cheeky face was covered by a layer of frost as her entire body exuded a shocking cold intent.
The originally bustling crowd rapidly fell silent due to her arrival, and quite a few people secretly exchanged glances. There have long been rumors in the academy that Chu Yue offended Liu Yintong at Million Wine Mountain. Now, it seems like it’s true! The two of them did have some conflict!
Liu Yintong seemed to ignore all these gazes as she walked straight to the square, looked at Chu Liuyue, and coldly commanded, “Let him go.”
Her tone was very righteous and commanding. It was as if others were born to listen to her every word.
Zhong Xun knitted his brows and spoke first. “Liu Yintong, this is a challenge. According to the rules, outsiders can’t casually intervene.”
Liu Yintong glanced at him, and her face was filled with unconcealable contempt. “Since when could you discipline me?”
Zhong Xun’s face turned ugly.
The other party’s position on the Qing Yun Ranking wasn’t low, and she had her name on both the warrior list and the heavenly doctor list. Thus. she indeed was more capable than him and had higher authority.
I‘l’m not disciplining anyone. I’m just stating the facts.” Zhong Xun clenched his hands tightly and didn’t look like he was going to give in. “No matter if it is you or anyone else present, they can only spectate. The continuation of this match depends on both of them.”
To be more accurate, it depended on Chu Liuyue.
“Boring.” Liu Yintong snorted and disregarded him completely.
She retracted her gaze and looked at Chu Liuyue. This time, her voice was even more shrill and had even clear commanding intentions. “Chu Yue, I told you to let him off. This match will end here!”
Once Zhong Xun spoke, Chu Liuyue stopped him. “Senior Brother Zhong Xun, this is between Senior Sister Liu and me. You don’t have to worry about it.”
Since I’ve already offended Liu Yintong, this is nothing. However, Zhong Xun doesn’t need to be implicated because of me.
Zhong Xun was hesitant in his words, but when he saw Chu Liuyue’s gaze, he suppressed the urge in his heart and nodded slightly.
Chu Liuyue glanced at Liu Yintong and smiled. “Senior Sister Liu, long time no see. How are you doing? May I know if your red-tailed phoenix has recovered?”
It was fine if she didn’t talk about it, but once she did, Liu Yintong’s blood boiled!
“You don’t have to worry about it! There’s no use in talking about these useless things either! I’m asking you: did you hear what I told you just now?”
Chu Liuyue nodded. “Yeah!”
“Since you’ve heard it, be sensible and quickly do it!” Liu Yintong always had a fiery temper and very high self-esteem. After losing that match previously, she hadn’t come to terms with it yet and felt stifled every time she thought of it.
If it weren’t because Chu Liuyue was standing on Qing Ming Square, she would’ve rushed forward directly!
“Oh, this…” Chu Liuyue dragged her last word, and her lips curled up into a smile, looking rather nonchalant.
One of her feet stepped on Liu Zi’an’s remaining unharmed hand.
Liu Zi’an originally wanted to avoid it, but he couldn’t do so in time. When he reacted, he already felt excruciating pain spreading from his hands!
Chu Liuyue gradually pressed on Liu Zi’an’s hand harder, and the sound of bones breaking continuously sounded.
She tilted her head and smiled slightly. “It seems a little difficult because I hate other people commanding me the most. “.
