Chapter 1225: Who Are You
The last name on the heavenly doctor list is a ninth-grade heavenly doctor’s name. With Chu Yue’s current standards, it might be difficult but not entirely hopeless. He can give it a try. Coincidentally, I want to see this Chu Yue’s skills and abilities!
The moment Elder Bo Yan said that, the surroundings fell silent. The students spectating the scene were taken aback. Is he serious? Elder Bo Yan actually directly requested Chu Yue to try out for the Qing Yun Ranking?! He came to the academy less than two months ago! If he really gets on the Qing Yun Ranking, what will the other students—who have cultivated in the academy for a long time but failed to do this—feel?
Chu Liuyue shook her head. “Thank you for your guidance, Elder Bo Yan, but I know that I’m not good enough to compare to my senior brothers and senior sisters. Perhaps… I should try again when I’ve improved more.”
Elder Bo Yan was rather shocked. Chu Yue… rejected it? This is rare. One has to know that there aren’t many such chances. In the academy, many students want to come up and try, but they can only wait until the beginning of the month. Yet, this kid looks nonchalant.
“Are you sure?” Elder Bo Yan stared into Chu Liuyue’s eyes. Young people are the most hot-blooded and impulsive. In such situations, they normally should be most excited and nervous. But from Chu Yue’s pair of clear eyes, I only see calmness. It really isn’t a gaze that a young man in his teens would have.
“Yes,” Chu Liuyue replied lightly with determination.
Meeting Elder Bo Yan’s meaningful gaze, Chu Liuyue paused and added, “I know that I’m not good enough, so I’ll definitely work hard and fight for a chance to ascend the Qing Yun Ranking earlier.”
Chu Liuyue’s reply caused many people’s mouths to widen. “What is Chu Yue doing? It’s rare for Elder Bo Yan to make an exception and let him directly take the test, yet he rejected it!”
“Pfft, he doesn’t know what’s good for him! Could it be that he thinks his status has also risen with Senior Brother Rong Xiu as his backer? Thus, he can be so casual.”
“Haha, don’t say that either. Didn’t you hear him saying that he knows he’s not good enough, so he did that? Although it’s rather overboard to curtly reject Elder Bo Yan, it’s better than being humiliated after trying and failing to get onto the Qing Yun Ranking, right? It’s even in front of so many people!”
“Even if he is talented, it is hard for him to get onto the Qing Yun Ranking directly! I really don’t know what the elders and Senior Brother Rong Xiu see in him…”
The crowd partook in heated discussions in no time.
Elder Bo Yan knitted his brows tightly. Not talking about others, but Chu Yue is really outstanding. If not, he wouldn’t be admired by Wan Zheng, who has always been picky. Besides Chu Yue already being able to produce a ninth-grade pill, even his warrior skills are pretty good! Being able to beat a stage-eight warrior with his stage-seven warrior cultivation is problematic on its own.
He laughed out loud and raised his voice. “Alright, you don’t have to be nervous! No matter Rong Xiu, your mentor, or the elders in the academy, many of them think highly of you! You just have to work hard in the future!”
His words were filled with unconcealable praise and admiration.
Hearing Elder Bo Yan’s words, the surrounding people fell silent.
Elder Bo Yan rarely praised any student in public. Being able to receive his affirmation was enough to prove how outstanding Chu Yue was!
Some people shut their mouths quickly.
Chu Liuyue bowed. “Thank you, Elder Bo Yan.”
Seeing Chu Yue’s still calm and composed gaze, Elder Bo Yan liked the teen even more. I have seen too many talented young men and women, but not all of them could become top elites. Other than talent, determined will and mature mentality cannot be lacking! And Chu Yue is already behaving in such a manner at a young age. There is no need to worry!
“Okay! Okay!” Elder Bo Yan smiled and stroked his beard. “Wan Zheng really accepted a good disciple this time!”
As he spoke, he looked toward Rong Xiu. “Rong Xiu, I’ll hand this kid to you now. You must teach him well!”
Rong Xiu nodded. “I’ll definitely do my best.”
Elder Bo Yan quickly left.
Rong Xiu glanced at Chu Liuyue and said, “Let’s go back.”
Chu Liuyue nodded and turned around to look at the black wall of Dong Huang Clock Tower. The Qing Yun Ranking didn’t come out in the end, but the previous touch was enough. However, I probably cannot try to get onto the Qing Yun Ranking in the future. My name at the top of the ranking lists can probably only see daylight again when I become strong enough.
She took a deep breath and left with Rong Xiu, one after another.
After they left, the surrounding spectators found it boring and left respectively.
Chu Liuyue sat in her own room quietly.
The cold moonlight poured in.
A tiny figure silently appeared within the room, and as if sensing something, Chu Liuyue looked up.
“Although you have moved, you can’t give up on playing chess every day—” As Dugu Mobao talked, he walked toward Chu Liuyue.
But before he could finish his sentence, he saw Chu Liuyue’s gaze. He understood what happened almost instantly, and he stopped in his tracks.
However, Chu Liuyue raised her brows slightly. “Big Baby, you came at the right time. I have some things I want to ask you.”
Dugu Mobao knitted his brows gradually.
Chu Liuyue tilted her head. “Who are you?”
