Chapter 1322: Attract

Perhaps it had been too long, so this totem was quite damaged. If one didn’t look closely, they would just think that it was a few simple lines, and they wouldn’t expect it to be a certain totem. It was also because Chu Liuyue was so familiar with this totem that she could recognize it immediately.

Chu Liuyue stared at the vendor behind the stall closely.

It was a man in his thirties wearing a washed-out gray sweater. He had a muscular build and stubble on his chin.

He seemed like a normal vendor in Fangzhou City.

“How much is this?” asked Chu Liuyue.

That man glanced at her hand and broke into a smile. “Young Master, you really have good eyesight! This item is a rare sebuckthorn wood—it’s a superior herb! If you bring it along with you, it can calm your nerves and boost your spirits! It’s very useful for cultivation! If you really want it… This price!”

He showed three fingers.

Chu Liuyue touched the wooden plaque. “Even though sebuckthorn wood is good, it can’t be considered any top or precious treasure. The price you’re asking for is too much, right? Where did you get this item from?”

When the vendor heard it, he chuckled. “Even if it’s not expensive, isn’t it a treasure since you took a fancy to it? As for where this thing came from… Heh, I don’t remember! Look, I have so many items. How can I remember where each and every one of them came from? If you genuinely want it, I’ll give you a discount. How about that?”

“Do you really think we’re fools? This item isn’t even worth half the price you mentioned!” At the side, Zhuo Sheng couldn’t help but walk over and laugh in contempt. “Chu Yue, if you want this sebuckthorn wood, the aca—we have a lot of it back home. Why must you waste the money?”

What does Ling Xiao Academy not have? I really don’t understand why Chu Yue is interested in this item. 

Chu Liuyue smiled. “It’s rare to see something I like. It’s not too bad to buy it and play with it.”

Then, she said to the vendor, “I’ll have it at half the price.”

Once the vendor heard it, he immediately looked elated. “Okay! Young Master, you’re really generous!”

Zhuo Sheng wanted to convince her further, but seeing that Chu Liuyue’s mind was already made, he could only let her be.

Chu Liuyue took out a money pouch and passed it over.

That vendor took it happily. “Young Master, if you like anything else, just take your pick!”

Chu Liuyue shook her head. “No need. I just want this.”

Then, she looked at Zhuo Sheng. “Didn’t you say that you wanted to bring us to an even more crowded place? Let’s go.”

“Yes, yes! Let’s go! It’s right over there!” Then, Zhuo Sheng walked forward first.

Chu Liuyue and Luo Yanming followed him closely.

The trio’s figures quickly disappeared around the corner.

“Chu Yue, isn’t that a wooden plaque made with sebuckthorn wood? What’s so good about it? I think that you have too much money and nowhere to spend it!” On the way, Zhuo Sheng was still thinking about Chu Liuyue buying the wooden plaque. As a Ling Xiao Academy student, especially a heavenly doctor like Chu Yue, what good things has he not seen? He came to Fangzhou City and actually bought that item. If word gets out, he will definitely be a laughingstock. 

Luo Yanming smiled faintly and said, “Zhuo Sheng, if he wants to buy it, let him do it. He didn’t spend your money, so why are you thinking so much?”

“Am I not just—hey, Chu Yue, why aren’t you walking?” Zhuo Sheng was still talking when he saw that Chu Liuyue suddenly stood still. She was sizing up the wooden plaque in her hands before she turned around and walked back.

Her two friends were dazed and thought that she was angry, so they hurriedly chased after her.

“Hey! Chu Yue, what’s the matter?” Zhuo Sheng scratched his head in embarrassment. “Did I talk too much and make you upset?”

Chu Liuyue shook her head. “No, I just realized that the wooden plaque seems to be fake. You guys can go shop around; I’ll find that person and ask for a refund. I’ll meet with you in a while.”

“Fake?” Zhuo Sheng and Luo Yanming were rather shocked, but seeing Chu Liuyue’s genuine expression, they believed their friend.

“He actually sold fake goods! We must teach him a lesson! We’re brothers; we’ll go with you!” As Zhuo Sheng spoke, he rolled up his sleeves and looked like he was about to start a fight.

Chu Liuyue couldn’t hold in her laughter and glanced at him. “I think it’s better if the two of you don’t go. If not, what should we do if the matter is made big? Don’t forget that this is Fangzhou City. If anything happens, the academy will find out instantly.”

Zhuo Sheng curtly put his sleeves back down. “Then, can you do it alone?”

What if they don’t want to admit it? 

Chu Liuyue laughed lightly. “If I really can’t handle it, there are still the academy elders in Fangzhou City guarding us.”

If something happened to the students, they would appear instantly.

“Therefore, you don’t have to worry. I’ll be right back.”

Zhuo Sheng and Luo Yanming glanced at each other and could only agree. “Okay then.”

Chu Liuyue went back the way she came on her own and quickly returned to the street she was previously at. She didn’t go forward and just stood at a corner as she glanced at the street.

That vendor had already disappeared without a trace.

There is something wrong! Chu Liuyue squinted her eyes slightly. She had left a special marking on her coin pouch. As long as the other party was within a 30-yard radius, she would be able to detect his tracks.

She turned the Cosmic Ring on her hand, surveyed her surroundings, and rushed in a certain direction.

All the streets in Fangzhou City were very crowded.

Chu Liuyue journeyed through them and looked normal, no different from the others. But in actual fact, she had been keeping a certain distance from the other party.

After walking down three streets, Chu Liuyue finally realized that something was amiss. The other party’s direction… He seems to be planning to leave the city! 

She paused in her tracks. The other party is either planning to leave directly or… purposely attracting me out of the city!

Inside Fangzhou City were quite a few Ling Xiao Academy elders and students, so it wasn’t very convenient. Once they were out of the city, it would be much easier to do things.

Chu Liuyue clutched the wooden plaque in her hands tightly, and she could clearly feel the totem engraved on its surface.

She only hesitated for a moment before she followed him!

Very quickly, she arrived at the city gate. There was nobody standing guard here, so many people were coming in and out.

Chu Liuyue took a look and didn’t see that vendor’s figure. This meant that he had already gone out!

Chu Liuyue put away the wooden plaque and walked toward the city gate.

When Chu Liuyue passed through the barrier near the city gate, she even purposely controlled her strength.

Her dantian was quiet.

She then heaved a sigh of relief and looked forward.

Outside Fangzhou City was an endless deserted space.

The sky was dark as if it were about to rain. A blurred area connected the sky and ground, and one couldn’t see it clearly.

In the deserted land, people came and went. But there were much fewer people compared to the city.

Chu Liuyue looked over and finally saw a familiar figure—it was the previous vendor!

She took a deep breath in and rapidly chased him.

The further one was from Fangzhou City, the fewer people there were. Gradually, there was nobody else in the surroundings.

“You purposely brought me out. Can we have a good talk now?” Chu Liuyue spoke clearly.
