Chapter 1175: Big Baby’s Identity
Chu Liuyue never thought that he wanted to ask this, so she couldn’t help but be slightly stunned. Fist technique? Actually, I didn’t think much when I took action earlier. I just instinctively hurled my fists around. Thinking about it now, it seems like they were… the fist techniques Big Baby once taught me when I fought with the puppets?
As I had spent most of my energy thinking of how to deal with those puppets, I didn’t pay particular attention to this. Why did Elder Wan Zheng suddenly ask about this? Chu Liuyue paused for a moment before replying, “I learned from a senior.”
“Which senior?” Elder Wan Zheng continued to ask.
Chu Liuyue’s brows moved slightly. Seeing Elder Wan Zheng’s appearance, could it be that he knows Big Baby? But previously, Big Baby didn’t state his specific identity, nor did he even bring up Elder Wan Zheng and the rest.
At this point, Chu Liuyue couldn’t conclude what background he had or what relationship he had with Elder Wan Zheng.
“A… senior that I met by chance,” said Chu Liuyue slowly. “I learned these few moves when I exchanged moves with him.”
“You? Exchange moves with him?” Elder Wan Zheng asked back in a strange tone.
Chu Liuyue’s heart skipped a beat, and she felt that Elder Wan Zheng’s gaze was about to see through her!
“Where is he now?”
Chu Liuyue shook her head. “I don’t know.”
She really didn’t know. Even though Big Baby said he would meet her in the academy, she hadn’t even seen his shadow yet. After she entered the academy, she also didn’t have the time to look for him. Besides, she didn’t know his identity, so she did not dare to be too outright about it.
“You don’t know?” Elder Wan Zheng clearly didn’t believe the latter, but after staring at the young man in front of him for a while, he couldn’t see anything.
This caused his originally confident answer to falter. “You really don’t know?”
Chu Liuyue sighed lightly. “I really don’t know.”
The room fell silent for a while.
Elder Wan Zheng sighed. “If he’s willing to teach you this fist technique, it shows that he thinks of you highly…”
His words have much longing to them, but he doesn’t seem to have ill intentions… Chu Liuyue thought in her heart and carefully asked, “Mentor, do you know him?”
Elder Wan Zheng was dazed for a moment and laughed bitterly. “In a way!”
Chu Liuyue was increasingly confused. 1441cqt does he mean by… ‘in a way?’
“Kid… you’re pretty lucky!” Elder Wan Zheng looked at his student with a complicated gaze, and there seemed to be something stirring in his eyes.
Chu Liuyue said in a calculated manner, “I also think that… it’s an honor to be able to receive that senior’s guidance.”
Elder Wan Zheng nodded before suddenly shaking his head and smiling. “It’s no wonder you…
could actually beat Liu Zi’an as a beginner stage-seven warrior…” With that person’s guidance, what does a mere Liu Zi’an count for?
Chu Liuyue didn’t say a word.
Elder Wan Zheng suddenly smiled helplessly. “If I knew of this earlier, I might not have taken you as my disciple back then…”
“Mentor, why would you say this?” Chu Liuyue was a little surprised.
Elder Wan Zheng looked at her with deep meaning. “You hid your talent as a warrior, right?” Chu Liuyue smiled. “Mentor, you must be jok—”
“If you’re not talented enough, that person will definitely not teach you. He has always hated stupid people the most.” Elder Wan Zheng waved his hands.
Thinking about the days she spent with Big Baby, tears surged up in her heart. That’s true! Even I couldn ‘t avoid Big Baby’s constant displeasure, let alone the rest.
“Even though I don’t know why you’re still a beginner stage-seven warrior now, your combat skills aren’t bad. You have much potential and a bright future ahead!” Elder Wan Zheng patted Chu Liuyue’s shoulders. “Don’t tell anyone about this for now. But if Elder Bo Yan and the others ask you, just answer honestly. ”
Chu Liuyue nodded. “I understand.”
“If you have the time in the future, you should go practice at the warrior’s side. Don’t lag behind. ”
Elder Wan Zheng’s reminders made Chu Liuyue feel rather strange. He means…
“Ahem, if you meet that person again and get criticized because you’re not capable enough, don’t say it’s because I didn’t give you enough time to train!” Elder Wan Zheng forcefully defended himself. IfI had known that person had his eyes on Chu Yue, I never would’ve snatched his disciple! However, I’m caught between a rock and a hard place, and this child is very talented as a heavenly doctor. I can ‘t bear to give him up if I really had to. Hence, I can only use such a method.
Chu Liuyue was speechless. I faintly feel that Elder Wan Zheng seems to respect and fear Big Baby greatly? This tone and this attitude are really abnormal.
She paused and tried to ask, “Mentor, is that person… an academy elder too?”
Elder Wan Zheng glanced at her strangely.
Why do I feel like he looked down on me…
“It’s fine if you don’t know. You have plenty of chances to learn about it in the future.” Elder Wan Zheng sighed. “Where’s your black jade plaque?”
Chu Liuyue picked up her plaque and passed it over.
Elder Wan Zheng took out his own green jade plaque. A ray of light then flew out from his plaque and was inserted into Chu Liuyue’s.
Chu Liuyue saw that another 100,000 points were added to her plaque.
“Consider this as a small greeting gift for you. These points are enough to last you for another two or three months. When you break through to become a ninth-grade heavenly doctor, I’ll have more rewards for you. Of course, the sooner you get onto the Qing Yun Ranking, the more rewards you’ll have.”
As Elder Wan Zheng spoke, he brought an ancient book over. “This medical book is filled with ninth-grade pill formulas. During this period of time, study it properly and try to break through earlier. If you’re lacking in any herbs, just use your points to exchange for them at Medicinal Valley. ”
Chu Liuyue took it with both her hands. “Thank you, Mentor.”
Elder Wan Zheng nodded and asked, “Oh, right, how did you spend your days at Fengmin Mountain?”.
