Chapter 1320: Open Day
The room instantly became quiet.
Tuan Zi guiltily averted its gaze.
Chu Liuyue pinched its small head and turned it back. “Didn’t you say you miss me very much? Don’t you want to talk to me and reminisce about the past?”
Coincidentally, Tuan Zi could directly open its mouth and speak in the future after breaking through, so it saved quite a bit of trouble.
Tuan Zi turned its head to another side.
This time, Chu Liuyue didn’t care about it anymore. Instead, she directly let go, turned around, and walked to the bedroom. “Since you don’t want to say it now, then we won’t. It won’t be too late to talk about it when you want to.”
Then, she directly walked into the room and climbed onto the bed, planning to rest.
Tuan Zi—who was abandoned—was dazed. It hurriedly looked at Chu Liuyue nervously but saw that she had already laid down as if she were going to sleep directly.
The candlelights were extinguished, and the room darkened. Only the faint moonlight seeped in like water, drawing the outline of the room.
Tuan Zi stood rooted to the spot for a while and seemed very conflicted. Its claw was about to step out, but it rapidly took it back again.
The fiend went back and forth a few times, and it felt extremely tortured. After much conflict, it finally made up its mind and flew toward Chu Liuyue.
“A’Yue.” Tuan Zi rested by Chu Liuyue’s pillow and carefully called out to her.
Chu Liuyue turned around and looked at it. “You want to talk now?”
Struggle flashed across Tuan Zi’s eyes. In the end, it nodded its small head in embarrassment.
Chu Liuyue sat up. “Let’s start then.”
After settling Chu Liuyue, Elder Hua Feng then returned to his own residence and discovered that Luo Yanming and Zhuo Sheng were still waiting for him.
“Elder Hua Feng!” Seeing Elder Hua Feng’s familiar figure, the duo—who were anxious from waiting—called out in surprise.
Zhuo Sheng was even faster, and he just rushed over. “Elder, you’re finally back! Is Chu Yue okay now? Are the both of you fine?!”
The series of questions exploded in front of Elder Hua Feng and even caused his head to hurt faintly. But thinking that the two of them were kind-hearted, he couldn’t bear to rage and patiently said, “Don’t worry. That kid is doing fine!”
Even though he is slightly injured, he obtained a red-gold heavenly phoenix! If this isn’t counted as ‘fine,’ then nobody in the world is doing fine.
Seeing Elder Hua Feng’s reaction, Zhuo Sheng and Luo Yanming finally relaxed.
“That’s good, that’s good! Elder, rest first then. We’ll go check on Chu Yue!” said Zhuo Sheng and was about to drag Luo Yanming away.
“Wait a minute!” Elder Hua Feng called the two of them.
Meeting the duo’s confused gazes, Elder Hua Feng coughed. “It’s already so late, and he should’ve gone to sleep after he went back. It’s not appropriate for you two to go over now.”
The two of them thought about it and agreed.
“Then, we’ll go again tomorrow,” said Luo Yanming to Zhuo Sheng.
Zhuo Sheng nodded.
Elder Hua Feng then relaxed. By tomorrow, everything should’ve returned to normal.
“That’s good too. Oh right, there’s something. Try not to tell other people about what happened today. Chu Yue…” Elder Hua Feng hesitated for a moment. “Recently, there have been enough rumors about him in the academy, so there’s no need to add one more. Give him some time to quietly cultivate and recuperate.”
The duo didn’t doubt anything else and agreed. “Yes!”
The next day, Chu Liuyue opened her eyes when the sky just started to turn bright.
Her eyes were slightly bloodshot, and there was a faint patch of black below her eyes. Clearly, she hadn’t slept well the entire night.
She turned around to take a look and saw Tuan Zi nestled by her side.
Hearing the movement, Tuan Zi immediately woke up. When the fiend met Chu Liuyue’s gaze, it blinked in confusion. Then, it leaned over and rubbed against her cheek.
Chu Liuyue’s heart instantly became soft, and she gently rubbed Tuan Zi’s forehead. “Okay, it’s time to go out.”
Tuan Zi glanced at it. “A’Yue, you’re not angry at me, right?”
Chu Liuyue paused, smiled, and said, “What’s there to be angry about? Didn’t you already tell me what you know?”
Tuan Zi looked down and touched her palm.
Two familiar voices were suddenly heard from outside.
Chu Liuyue stood up and carried Tuan Zi up. “Okay, you’ve just broken through and should rest properly. During this period of time, you can’t come out, okay?”
Tuan Zi nodded, and its figure instantly disappeared.
Chu Liuyue then walked outside.
The people visiting here were still Luo Yanming and Zhuo Sheng.
Even though Chu Liuyue didn’t really sleep the entire night, her wounds had pretty much healed. So at first glance, other than people thinking that she didn’t sleep well, she did not look like she had other problems.
Seeing Chu Liuyue’s current state, the duo felt more at ease.
“It’s good that you’re fine. Yesterday was really—” Zhuo Sheng had spoken halfway when he suddenly recalled that he shouldn’t talk about this incident anymore, so he hurriedly kept quiet.
Luo Yanming silently changed the topic. “Oh right. Chu Yue, today is the academy’s open day. Do you want to go out and tour around?”
The so-called open day was actually a holiday that Ling Xiao Academy had once every three months. It usually lasted for three days. Within these three days, the students could leave the academy, and the elders wouldn’t ask further.
Many students would take this chance to go out and relax. Some who lived nearer could make a trip home, while the remaining ones would tour around Fangzhou City.
Zhuo Sheng immediately became interested. “Right! We’ve come to the academy for so long, but we haven’t gone out yet! Chu Yue, let’s go together!”
