Chapter 1209: Nothing Hard

Chu Liuyue was speechless. I admit defeat! As expected, I shouldn’t have tried to win against someone else in this aspect. 

The two of them walked to Fengmin Mountain.

At this point, the crowd waiting at the far end finally noticed something.

“They seem to be going toward Fengmin Mountain? Could the elders want to lock Chu Yue up there?”

“It can’t be, right? Wasn’t Chu Yue already locked there once and just came out? Even if the elders want to punish him, it doesn’t seem very appropriate to choose this again, right…”

“What’s so inappropriate about it? He did something wrong and should be punished. Could he be absolved of the punishment just because he went there not long ago?”

“That’s true… It seems like Senior Brother Rong Xiu is in charge of bringing him there… However, why do the two of them look like they’re talking so happily…?”

“…Actually, I think so too! I think Rong Xiu even smiled just now—did you see that? I’ve heard that he has a cold personality and isn’t even willing to say a few more sentences normally, so why does he have such a good attitude toward Chu Yue…”

“Didn’t you hear? That Chu Yue blocked an attack for Senior Brother Rong Xiu previously! Could a normal person be compared to him? It isn’t strange that Senior Brother Rong Xiu would treat him like this.”

Jiang Zhiyuan looked at the two figures moving further away as she bit her lips, turned around, and left.

With her previous experience and Rong Xiu leading her, Chu Liuyue came to Fengmin Mountain very quickly.

She glanced at Rong Xiu in surprise when she arrived before the mountain. “Why do I feel like… you seem to be very familiar with this place?”

Rong Xiu’s residence was actually not near to this place, but Rong Xiu led the way in front and didn’t pause or hesitate at all. He even led her to take the fastest route.

Chu Liuyue even felt that he had come here more than once.

As expected, Rong Xiu nodded. “I came here… a few times.”

Chu Liuyue smiled. “Oh? I couldn’t tell that the outstanding Senior Brother Rong Xiu would come to this place. Did you also do something wrong and get locked up inside?”

Rong Xiu glanced at her with deep meaning. Because of someone, I did come here a few times. 

“I’ve been to most places in the academy. Fengmin Mountain is nothing. As for you… you seem like you want to come here a lot. Why? Is there something interesting about this place?”

As the elders were present earlier, Chu Liuyue didn’t tell Rong Xiu much. However, she didn’t hide it now as she nodded honestly and looked at Fengmin Mountain. “Yeah. For some reason, I just feel that cultivating here seems to be faster and more comfortable.”

Rong Xiu’s eyes were very sharp and sensitive. Even if she didn’t say anything, he could tell.

“Fengmin Mountain has a rich force and is the same as the outside world. But since you like it here… do it your way.” Rong Xiu smiled as if he had no intentions of asking further. “Go in. I’ll see you in a month.”

Yes, to hand out a severe warning, the punishment for Chu Liuyue was set to be one month long.

Elder Wan Zheng was originally very opposed to it, but Chu Liuyue managed to convince him to accept it. But because of this incident, he nagged at Elder Bo Yan for quite some time.

Chu Liuyue was a little surprised. “Will you stay in the academy for this month?

Rong Xiu nodded. “Yeah. Coincidentally, I have some things to settle.”

Chu Liuyue thought for a moment and tried to ask, “It’s… related to that supreme Yuan instrument?”

This matter was blown up, and many top-tier clans were involved. Rong Xiu even personally killed Jin Lei, so there must be a lot of battles to fight. 

Suddenly, her heart tingled, and she looked at Rong Xiu in shock. “Wait, you purposely let me stay here for a month?”

Yes, this one-month punishment period was suggested by Rong Xiu. In the beginning, Elder Bo Yan wanted to lock her up for half a month, but Rong Xiu said that this issue had severe consequences. Thus, there would be a lot of trouble later if they didn’t handle it properly.

Locking her up for a month would cause all the rumors in the academy to disappear automatically. They could even take the chance to refine Chu Liuyue’s mentality.

Elder Bo Yan felt that he made sense and agreed.

In the beginning, Chu Liuyue thought that Rong Xiu only said it because he guessed that she wanted to go to Fengmin Mountain. But it seemed like… he had planned it in advance!

“You don’t have to care about those trivial matters,” said Rong Xiu calmly. “With me around, nobody will cause trouble for you.”

Of course, Chu Liuyue would be in trouble. The crowd had racked their brains to get the supreme Yuan instrument, but it eventually landed in her hands and recognized her as its owner! If the Golden Wings Sect and the other clans really wanted to pursue this matter, she would definitely be implicated!

Something overwhelmed Chu Liuyue’s heart, but she felt that there was no need to say some things between them as both would understand.

With this man around, it was like she wouldn’t need to worry even if she caused the biggest trouble as he would handle it all. This form of security could only be obtained with him.

She suppressed these thoughts as her red lips curled up into a bright smile. “Then we’ll see each other in a month!”

Rong Xiu was influenced by her smile as his lips curled up. “Okay.”

Chu Liuyue walked up. But after she took two steps, she felt like she suddenly recalled something as she turned around to take a look. “Right, there’s something…”

Rong Xiu nodded and gestured for her to continue.

Chu Liuyue hesitated for a moment, lowered her voice slightly, and asked, “Rong Xiu, do you know the student whose name was erased from the Qing Yun Ranking?”

Rong Xiu’s hand gradually clenched behind his back, but his expression was as calm as normal. “Yes. Why?”

“Have you been to her medicinal garden?”

“Medicinal garden?”

“Yeah, the one that the director specifically left for her.” Chu Liuyue asked with some uncertainty, “Did the director do it?”

“Mm, I’ve been there before. But it was later locked up, so I didn’t go there anymore. You… went there?”

Chu Liuyue smiled and shook her head. “How could I enter that place? The elders guard it super strictly! I just unintentionally took a look at it when I went to Medicinal Valley to get herbs.”

Rong Xiu’s tense body relaxed slightly. “Actually, the herbs inside aren’t very different from those within Medicinal Valley, so it’s fine if you don’t go there.”

However, Chu Liuyue shook her head. “No, I feel that the medicinal garden seems amiss.”

Rong Xiu’s brows moved slightly, and he looked at her. “How is it amiss?”

Chu Liuyue paused for a moment. “I… saw many, many Dancing Lotuses blooming. That item is extremely precious, and it’s usually very rare to even see a stalk or two. However, there were so many there… Dancing Lotuses only bloom once every few hundred years, so it’s quite unbelievable to get so many at once.”

Rong Xiu heaved a sigh of relief. “That’s not really hard.”

Chu Liuyue was stunned and squinted her eyes. “How do you know that?”
