Chapter 1174: Who Taught
Even if Liu Yintong didn’t look for me, I would go and find her. I won the bet with much difficulty, so I naturally can’t give up on the stakes we set up.
“Of course, I didn’t!” Liu Yintong was so angry that her face turned pale. Go to Million Wine Mountain continuously for a month and must have the best seat… This isn’t so easily done for me! Originally, I thought Chu Yue would restrain himself a little after being locked up in Fengmin Mountain, but I didn’t expect him to be even bolder.
“Sorry for the trouble then, Senior Sister Liu. You’ll have to send me to the peak of Million Wine Mountain for the following month.” Chu Liuyue’s next sentence angered Liu Yintong further.
“What did you say?! You want me to send you personally?!”
“Senior Sister Liu, why are you so shocked?” Chu Liuyue raised her brows slightly. “I’ve also heard that the seat isn’t fixed, and one has to book it every day. Thus, I said this. If you don’t want to go with me… How can I get the seat right next to the fountain myself, am I right?” Liu Yintongs chest heaved intensely, and there seemed to be waves crashing!
As if Chu Liuyue had seen through something, she asked carefully, “Senior Sister Liu, the bet is completed. You won’t… disagree with it, right?”
Liu Yintong was so angry that she laughed. “Okay! Since you’ve said so, I’ll play with you until the end! Don’t you want to go to Million Wine Mountain? I’ll accompany you there for the next month every day!”
I want to see what tricks this Chu Yue has up his sleeves!
Liu Yintong turned around and left furiously. Her steps were much quicker than before.
The crowd hurriedly made a path for her.
After Liu Yintong’s figure disappeared, quite a few people turned back and looked at Chu Liuyue in admiration. Tsk! This Chu Yue really has gotten into a vicious cycle! From now onward, he has completely fallen out with Liu Yintong, right? He’s really… bold!
Chu Liuyue seemed to have not noticed those people’s gazes as she tidied her messy clothes and walked down from the square.
Zhong Xun hurriedly walked forward. “Junior Brother Chu Yue— I’
Seeing his rather worried appearance, Chu Liuyue smiled slightly in comfort. “Senior Brother Zhong Xun, don’t worry. I know what I’m doing.”
Seeing that young man’s determined and calm expression, Zhong Xun suddenly felt that he was much more mature and composed than he had imagined. Even he couldn’t guess what the other party was thinking.
He nodded. “Anyway, she started this incident first. It won’t be your fault no matter what.
Besides, if she really wants to do something, Elder Wan Zheng won’t agree to it.”
As the only disciple Elder Wan Zheng had accepted in the past few years, one could think with their feet and know that Elder Wan Zheng definitely doted on him very much. He wouldn’t let his disciple be bullied by others.
At this point, a voice came from the side. “Your combat skills aren’t bad.”
Chu Liuyue and Zhong Xun turned around. They saw that Luo Yanlin and the rest had come over.
The person talking was Luo Yanlin. He sized Chu Liuyue up, and his gaze flickered slightly. “Beginner stage-seven… You don’t seem like it.”
Chu Liuyue smiled and chose to reply in a more tactful manner. “I can just last a little longer.” This was the truth. After she fought with those puppets, even stage-eight warriors—let alone those of the same standard as her—might not be able to compare to her resistance!
Of course, it was the same when she hit other people—every punch was lethal!
It was all thanks to Big Baby that I could win this match easily. Thinking of this, Chu Liuyue suddenly knitted her brows. Big Baby said that he would wait for me in the academy, but he hasn’t made much noise even now.
She wondered if he was in the academy now and why he didn’t come to find her.
“Chu Yue, what’s wrong with you?” Seeing Chu Liuyue in a daze, Luo Shishi couldn’t help but ask.
Chu Liuyue recovered her senses and shook her head. “Nothing much. It’s just that I’m a little tired after suddenly fighting.”
The crowd was speechless. You have been winning since the start and didn’t suffer many injuries. Why are you tired?
Luo Yanlin suddenly said, “You seem to be talented as a warrior too. If you have time, you should talk to an elder and cultivate properly. You might not be bad at it.’
If this Chu Yue really isjust a beginner stage-seven warrior and can easily beat Liu Zi’an, it is enough to prove his potential! Even ifhis current cultivation level isn ‘t high, his future is bright!
Chu Liuyue’s lips curved up slightly. “Thank you for the advice, Senior Brother Luo. Besides, I owe you a favor for today’s incident. If there’s a chance in the future, I’ll definitely repay you.’
Luo Yanlin admired the other party even more in his heart. I didn ‘t speak because I purely wanted to help Chu Yue. However, it vvas rather smart and loyal of the other party to acknowledge my efforts.
“It was just a sentence; I don’t need you to repay me. After all, you’re Shishi’s friend, and this is just a small matter. Cultivate properly in the future and get onto the Qing Yun Ranking earlier.
Then, you won’t be bullied by anyone.”
Chu Liuyue restrained her expression and nodded seriously.
“Okay. Since this matter has already ended, you should go back and properly rest—’
“Chu Yue.” Before Luo Yanlin could finish his sentence, he heard a voice from behind.
The few of them turned around and saw Elder Wan Zheng walking out from Dong Huang Clock Tower’s door that suddenly opened.
He walked over and paused in front of the few of them for a moment.
The few of them bowed in unison. “Greetings, Elder Wan Zheng.”
Chu Liuyue quickly glanced at his expression. “Master?”
“Follow me.” Elder Wan Zheng didn’t have much of an expression, and they couldn’t tell his mood. He just left this sentence behind before he walked forward.
The remaining few people exchanged glances.
“Why do I feel that Elder Wan Zheng seems amiss?” muttered Luo Shishi.
“It’s not ‘seems,’ but he is!” Zhuo Sheng’s tone was affirmative, and his face was filled with confusion. “That’s weird… Logically speaking, your mentor, Elder Wan Zheng, should be very proud and happy that you won this match beautifully. Why—” He couldn’t pinpoint the reason, but it was just weird.
It wasn’t like he was elated or angry. He was unfathomable.
Chu Liuyue shook her head. “I’ll leave first. I’ll find you guys later.”
Then, she followed him.
“This…” Zhong Xun originally wanted to follow her, but thinking of Elder Wan Zheng’s previous expression, he stopped in his tracks.
Chu Liuyue followed Elder Wan Zheng back to his residence.
This was Chu Liuyue’s first time here on this mountain. Originally, she was supposed to formally acknowledge her mentor the day after the monthly assessment concluded, but she got into trouble at Million Wine Mountain that night. Thus, she was directly locked up at Fengmin Mountain afterward and didn’t come out.
The mountain was filled with lush greenery, and the air had a faint herbal smell.
In the academy, every elder had their own private housing, so there were only the two of them on this mountain.
There was a simple wooden house in the middle of the herbal field at the mountain.
The two of them entered the house, and Elder Wan Zheng finally stood still, turning around.
He looked at Chu Liuyue quietly but with a sharp gaze in the silence! It was as if he wanted to see through her completely!
Chu Liuyue’s heart gradually tightened—
Elder Wan Zheng stared at her and said every word carefully, “Who taught you your fist technique?”.
