Chapter 1304: Signs of Breaking Through
One night quickly passed.
The morning sunlight shone in from the windows.
Chu Liuyue squinted her eyes and lay behind. “Sigh… Big Baby is really determined this time…”
This Xuan formation was by far the most difficult one she had seen, and it was even harder than the one Dugu Mobao had previously left behind. Even now, she had yet to solve that one, so there was no need to mention this one.
Chu Liuyue rubbed her temple. After studying it for an entire night, she didn’t make much progress.
She could almost confirm that she couldn’t go out today.
A ripple was suddenly heard from her dantian. A thought popped up in Chu Liuyue’s mind, and she called Tuan Zi out.
The noise just now had just come from him.
Compared to the previous day, the number of lightning bolts flashing across Tuan Zi’s body had reduced by quite a bit. They should’ve been slowly absorbed by it, but its eyes were still tightly shut.
It didn’t show any signs of waking up.
Chu Liuyue picked Tuan Zi up and carefully looked at it.
Yesterday, Tuan Zi was completely drenched, so she couldn’t tell. But now, she realized that Tuan Zi’s feathers were much darker than before. At first glance, it seemed like a burning ball of fire—intense and fiery.
Chu Liuyue recalled that last time, Tuan Zi had only soaked in the fountain for a while and was unconscious for quite a long time. Therefore, she really didn’t know when it would wake up this time.
But by the time it wakes up, it… should be the time when its bloodline power is completely activated, right? Thinking of this, Chu Liuyue felt more comforted.
“Chu Yue! Chu Yue?” Luo Shishi’s voice came from outside.
Chu Liuyue sighed, turned around, and briefly tidied herself up before walking outside. She glanced at Luo Shishi standing outside the barrier.
“Chu Yue, it’s time to go. There are many people gathering at Qing Ming Square.” Luo Shishi waved toward Chu Liuyue.
Chu Liuyue walked a few steps forward and stood at a safe distance. “Shishi, could you help me take leave? Just say that I’m not feeling well. I’m afraid I can’t go this time.”
Luo Shishi was taken aback. “Are you sick? Is it very serious? I’ll ask an elder to come and take a look!”
Chu Liuyue hurriedly said, “No need; it’s an old illness. I’ve already taken medicine, so I’ll be fine after I rest for a while. But with my state… I definitely can’t go to the Flood-Desert Northern Region anymore. I’m so sorry.”
Luo Shishi saw that Chu Liuyue’s face was indeed rather frail and felt worried. But looking at the latter’s determined attitude, she agreed. “Then, I’ll tell the elder for you. Take good care of yourself. If you really can’t hold on anymore, you must find an elder for help.”
Chu Liuyue smiled gratefully. “Thank you.”
Chu Liuyue being sick and her sudden departure from the team shocked quite a few people. After all, such a chance was very rare, and it was a real pity to just give up on it.
Even Elder Bo Yan found it rather strange and asked more about Chu Liuyue’s condition.
Elder Wan Zheng was very worried and directly went to Jiuheng Peak himself.
Chu Liuyue could only come out and explain again. After much talking, she finally got Elder Wan Zheng to believe that she was fine.
As Elder Wan Zheng had to join the trip to the Flood-Desert Northern Region, he quickly left after confirming that Chu Liuyue was fine.
Chu Liuyue finally had some peace and quiet. Even though she was worried in her heart, the true Heavenly Square Cauldron was with her, which gave her sufficient confidence.
She started to focus on solving the Xuan formation.
The team that Ling Xiao Academy sent out this time was massive. There were a total of 30 or so elders and about 300 students going to the Flood-Desert Northern Region together.
After those people left, the entire academy became much quieter, but the cultivation atmosphere was even richer than before. Many of the students who failed the selection this time were determined to work hard and become stronger so that they wouldn’t miss such a chance again in the future.
Abilities were forever the strongest right to speak!
Everything seemed to be the same as before.
The days of studying the Xuan formation alone were very dry. If it were someone else, they would find it very hard to bear after a day or two.
However, Chu Liuyue didn’t act like this. Her attitude was great because she knew that Dugu Mobao did this mostly for her, so she didn’t grumble. She stood rooted to the spot and stared at the Xuan formation, studying it bit by bit.
When she felt tired, she would choose to flip open the Physician Medicinal Guide that Elder Wan Zheng had left behind.
Three days later, as if afraid that she would be bored, Dugu Mobao still threw a puppet over to ‘accompany’ her.
Mm, beginner stage-nine warrior.
When Chu Liuyue finally could fight with this puppet head-on, Dugu Mobao threw a second one over.
Inside the room, Chu Liuyue sat cross-legged and hugged her arm with one hand while the other held her chin. She looked very serious.
Looking at the complicated Xuan formation on the ground and the two puppets that were about to fight anytime, she fell into deep thought. Did I offend Big Baby before?
Five days later, Chu Liuyue dismissed this thought. Even though she didn’t solve the Xuan formation Big Baby gave her, she had successfully solved the previous Xuan formation during this process.
Above ninth-grade Xuan Masters were King Xuan Masters!
She faintly had an intuitive feeling that perhaps she would reach a higher stage as a Xuan Master before she broke through to become a Physician or a demigod.
During this period, Tuan Zi didn’t make much movement and was still in deep sleep. However, Chu Liuyue could clearly feel the tremendous changes that were taking place in it.
This type of change was silent, as calm as the rain flowing down. But Chu Liuyue understood that this would definitely be a shock to most people one day!
