Chapter 1307: Shock
“Haha! Why would I?” Elder Meng Ye waved his fan excitedly. “Don’t worry. I haven’t had the time to give your herbs bill from the previous month to Wan Zheng yet! It’s not too late to show him when he comes back! During this period of time, you can take whatever herbs you want!”
After he said that, he smacked his lips, squinted his eyes, and leisurely said, “All these years, he has only accepted you as a disciple. He’ll definitely dote on you like the apple of his eye. Hehe, I think he’ll want to leave all his good items for you. What does this bit of herbs count for?”
The corner of Chu Liuyue’s lips twitched as she faintly heard some hint of gloating over one’s misery.
She politely bowed. “Thank you, Elder Meng Ye.”
Then, she walked to the side and started picking the herbs seriously.
Elder Meng Ye lay back down. Thinking about Wan Zheng’s expression when he saw the bill after coming back, he couldn’t help but whistle. That scene will definitely be amazing!
Actually, Chu Liuyue didn’t lack herbs.
When Rong Xiu gave her the Cosmic Ring, it had many herbs inside. Later on, she had also obtained quite a few herbs with different means. After she came to the academy, she had come to Medicinal Valley a few times…
She definitely had enough herbs, but ever since she recalled the Xuan formations and medicinal formulas, Chu Liuyue felt that she was still lacking some. Additionally, she kept flipping through the Physician Medicinal Guide these few days, so she really had to come here and search again.
Very quickly, Chu Liuyue picked quite a few herbs again. Unknowingly, she walked to the edge.
A faint suppression came from the front.
Chu Liuyue stopped in her movements and looked up.
The barrier of Medicinal Valley wasn’t far away from her. The sky gradually darkened, and the barrier shone faintly.
Chu Liuyue suddenly felt an urge. I want to go in and see the medicinal garden!
Ever since she confirmed her identity, this thought had popped up in her mind more than once. But it was too difficult, so she hadn’t tried.
On the one hand, the medicinal garden’s location was extremely special, so it was impossible to enter without attracting anyone’s attention. On the other hand, she kept flouting the rules in the academy. If she got caught again, she would be in a lot of trouble.
However, she couldn’t completely suppress such thoughts. As time passed, they became increasingly obvious. This was especially so today—after she broke through to become a King Xuan Master, such thoughts surged to their peak!
Right at this moment, she suddenly felt a gaze land on her back. That was Elder Meng Ye’s gaze.
Chu Liuyue silently picked a few herbs from the surroundings and leisurely walked around the area for a while before packing her items and getting the bill.
The strong gaze reduced gradually.
Elder Meng Ye seemed lazy, but he was very meticulous and careful in reality.
The large Medicinal Valley was all in his control. Wanting to do anything under his watch was just courting death.
After Chu Liuyue got the bill for the herbs, she respectfully bade him farewell and left Medicinal Valley.
Looking at her departing back view, Elder Meng Ye used the fan to scratch his chin as he lay back down again.
When Chu Liuyue returned to Jiuheng Peak, the sky was completely dark. She silently cultivated in her room and adjusted her condition to the best that it could be.
Late at night.
Chu Liuyue opened her eyes, changed into a black robe, and covered herself up tightly. She then glanced outside.
The moon was round and bright, and it reflected the light coolly.
It was so quiet that she could hear the wind passing through the mountains.
She raised her hand.
The light-pink peach blossom gradually bloomed on her wrist. The next moment, her figure disappeared from the room!
At this point, when the sky was darkest, the entire academy was silent.
Chu Liuyue’s figure appeared in a dark corner. The surrounding large trees completely covered her figure.
There was nobody else around.
After staying in the academy for such a long period of time, Chu Liuyue had almost gone to all the places a student could go. She was now already very familiar with the academy’s terrain, so she could easily avoid the places where people could easily see her and take a quieter and more deserted pathway.
She surveyed her surroundings. After confirming the direction, she made up her mind and left quickly.
After a few rounds, Chu Liuyue finally entered the Xuan Master region and came to the bottom of the innermost mountain.
She looked over, and her heart seemed to be hit by something.
It’s here, Chu Liuyue said quietly in her heart.
The place that had appeared in her memories countless times and held significant meaning to her—Yu Heng Mountain!
The mountain peak was tall and sharp. One side was a road that led all the way down, and the other was a dangerous cliff.
At first glance, it seemed like someone held a sword and slashed it down from the skies, directly slashing it so that it would end up in this state.
On the cliff was an octagonal pavilion.
Chu Liuyue’s breathing stopped. The scene—which had only appeared in her mind previously—was in front of her eyes in this manner.
She clenched her fists and walked forward, but the moment she took a few steps out, she felt a vague yet strong suppression!
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows and then realized that there was also a barrier on the outside of Yu Heng Mountain. And its level was not low.
According to the scene in her memory, opposite Yu Heng Mountain was the medicinal garden with a lake in the middle. It wasn’t very possible to go over from Medicinal Valley, so this was the only way. However, she didn’t expect there to be a barrier here as well.
Chu Liuyue didn’t dare to take action casually, terrified that she would cause some commotion and attract people over. By that time, she really wouldn’t be able to explain herself.
But if she gave up right now and turned around to leave, she would be very indignant.
Just when Chu Liuyue was frustrated about what to do, she heard two people talking behind her. “Do you think the elders have reached yet?”
Chu Liuyue was shocked and hurriedly hid behind one of the gigantic stones at the side as she hid her aura at the same time.
“Considering the time, they should be there already. After all, the academy has a transportation formation that can directly bring them there. Isn’t it more convenient for them than others?”
The people talking seemed to be two young men, and they should be the academy students. However, Chu Liuyue was unfamiliar with their voices, so she felt that she shouldn’t know them.
“That’s true. Perhaps they can personally see the Heavenly Square Cauldron appear in a short while… It’s a pity that we’re not capable enough. We don’t even have a chance to go there, sigh!”
“Don’t be discouraged. We just need to cultivate diligently. Perhaps we’ll have another chance in the future!”
“We can only do that… At the end of the day, it’s still because we’re not talented enough. Do you think we’ll be stronger than we currently are if we have half of Senior Brother Rong Xiu’s talent? He actually occupied the entire Yu Heng Mountain!”
Chu Liuyue was suddenly stunned as her body fell forward uncontrollably!
Yu Heng Mountain’s barrier vibrated intensely.
