Chapter 1218: Rong Xiu is Waiting for Us

Walking out from that space, Chu Liuyue arrived at the hall. She stood in her spot and turned to cup her fists in the direction of the seven doors. “Thank you for taking care of me during this period, Elder.”

The other party sneered. “Don’t let me see you again next month, kid!”

Hearing the intense disdain, Chu Liuyue rubbed her nose. She originally wanted to say that she would try her best, but after some thinking, she just acknowledged it obediently. “Yes.”

“Quickly leave! Quickly leave!”

Chu Liuyue bowed and obediently left.

Walking out of the door, Chu Liuyue took a deep breath in.

The fresh and cooling air entered her lungs, rejuvenating her entire self. Not to mention others, but this place seemed even more comfortable during this month than before…

Suddenly, she focused her gaze and saw a familiar figure standing outside the barrier—it was Elder Wan Zheng.

Seeing Chu Liuyue come out, Elder Wan Zheng’s eyes lit up as he hurriedly said, “Chu Yue, I’m here! Come over quickly!”

Chu Liuyue was caught between laughter and tears. Why does this scene seem like I just came out of prison… 

But seeing Elder Wan Zheng’s overjoyed behavior, Chu Liuyue couldn’t help but be influenced as she moved her feet and quickly walked toward Elder Wan Zheng.

“Mentor, why are you here?” Arriving in front of Elder Wan Zheng, Chu Liuyue couldn’t help but ask.

Elder Wan Zheng sized her up and said, “Hehe, I have been waiting here since morning!”

A month was really a tad too long. He was worried, so he directly came over. Anyway, he’s my own disciple. If I don’t dote on him, who will? 

Suddenly, his gaze focused as he widened his eyes slightly and asked in disbelief, “Y-you seemed to have strengthened again?”

Chu Liuyue pressed her lips against each other and smiled. “I haven’t officially broken through yet.”

That means it’s soon! Elder Wan Zheng blinked, and his eyes flashed with overwhelming shock as he didn’t know what to say. Normally speaking, students who get locked up at Fengmin Mountain will mostly be exhausted when they come out. Some might even be injured. However, not only does Chu Yue look fine, but his surrounding aura even seems to be stronger than before! 

Elder Wan Zheng glanced at the pagoda suspiciously. What kind of situation is this?

“Did that old fella give you some convenience because you’re my disciple?” muttered Elder Wan Zheng softly.

Once he said that, he heard an old and deep voice. “Wan Zheng! What are you dreaming about?”

Give you face? Dream on! I might not even give Bo Yan this face if he came, let alone Wan Zheng?! 

Elder Wan Zheng looked awkward for once. “Alright, alright. If it’s a no, you can just say so! Why must you scold me!? The kid is listening over here!”

Chu Liuyue was speechless.

“Ahem, um… Disciple, let’s ignore him! It’s even better if he didn’t give you convenience on purpose!” Elder Wan Zheng arranged his collar. What does this prove? It proves that my own disciple is capable! Look at how energized he looks! Look at his gradually strengthening aura! He’s doing great! 

“Let’s go! Follow me back!”

If his abilities as a warrior have improved, perhaps his heavenly doctor skills did as well! Elder Wan Zheng wanted to see if his disciple had broken through to become a ninth-grade heavenly doctor!

Chu Liuyue nodded and surveyed her surroundings in a seemingly casual manner.

Elder Wan Zheng was dazed and asked, “Disciple, who are you looking for?”

Chu Liuyue retracted her gaze and smiled. “Nothing much. Let’s go.”

Elder Wan Zheng didn’t care about it either as his figure moved, and he left first.

Chu Liuyue followed him closely.

After journeying halfway, Chu Liuyue realized that the academy’s atmosphere was quite strange. “Mentor, what happened in the academy during this period of time?”

Elder Wan Zheng acknowledged his disciple. Then, he realized what the latter was asking and explained, “Nothing much. It was just that Wei Xiping was expelled by the academy a while ago.”

Chu Liuyue had some impression of this name. That man seems to have an honorable background and was thought of highly by the academy. If not, they wouldn’t have allowed him to go to Ancient Feather Abyss this time. Why did he suddenly get expelled? 

“What did he do?”

“Hmph. Of course, he did something he shouldn’t have.” Elder Wan Zheng coldly snorted. “At Ancient Feather Abyss back then, he purposely let Jin Lei and the rest chase us in order to deal with Rong Xiu. Expelling him is already too easy for him!”

His few sentences were very succinct and clear.

Chu Liuyue quickly understood what went on. “I see… It seems like the people in the academy already know about this?”

“Of course. When Bo Yan personally removed his name from the Qing Yun Ranking, quite a few people saw it!” Elder Wan Zheng shook his head. “In the past, I already felt that he was petty, arrogant, and someone who got jealous easily. In the end, he really did such a thing! If it weren’t because Rong Xiu left some evidence behind… We wouldn’t have even known how many times he lied to the academy!”

Chu Liuyue’s heart tingled slightly. “Rong Xiu… discovered this?”

Elder Wan Zheng nodded.

The two of them walked a distance, and Chu Liuyue then realized that the direction seemed wrong. “Mentor, this doesn’t seem like we’re going to your place?”

“Yeah! We’re going to yours!”

Chu Liuyue was dazed. I thought that Elder Wan Zheng came over early in the morning to fetch me and bring me back so that he could test my heavenly doctor standards. 

As if seeing through her thoughts, Elder Wan Zheng chuckled. “Don’t worry, kid. I do intend to test you, but I chose the venue to be at your place.”

Chu Liuyue smiled and asked, “Why did you suddenly think of going to my place, Mentor?”

“Of course, it’s because you’re going to pack your things!” Elder Wan Zheng stroked his beard. “You need to turn another bend to get to my place, so it’s more convenient if we come to yours directly!”

Chu Liuyue was confused. “Pack my things? Me?”

“Ah, yes—you don’t know about this yet!” Elder Wan Zheng hit his head. “From now on, you’re going to move to Rong Xiu’s place and stay with him!”

Chu Liuyue couldn’t react in time as she instinctively asked, “Me? Stay with Rong Xiu?!”

Why didn’t I hear of this before at all? I just made a trip to Fengmin Mountain. Why am I suddenly moving house now that I’m out? And it’s to stay with Rong Xiu… As one of the top few existences amongst the students in the academy, doesn’t Rong Xiu always stay alone? 

“Hehe, I think Rong Xiu was the one who took the initiative to talk to Bo Yan about this. He said that he planned to bring you around the academy during this period of time, so it’ll be convenient if you stay at his place.”

As long as one doesn’t snatch my disciple, I welcome them greatly, not to mention that it is Rong Xiu. If my precious disciple can learn from Rong Xiu for a period of time, she will definitely benefit greatly! 

Such an opportunity is very rare, and others couldn’t have it even if they wanted to. Why does this kid look so shocked? Elder Wan Zheng smiled and said, “Disciple, although Rong Xiu mainly specializes in the warrior aspect and the Armory Refinement aspect, he is pretty good as a heavenly doctor. This chance is rare. You must learn from him properly, okay?”

While they were talking, the duo had already reached a familiar mountain.

Elder Wan Zheng laughed out loud. “See! Rong Xiu is already waiting for us!”
