Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Without thinking, Chu Liuyue immediately retreated! However, that scale did not disappear and kept approaching her!
It was extremely fast, and one couldn’t even see its traces. They heard a few ear-piercing sounds in the air, and black cracks appeared in mid-air!
It showed its formidability!
Chu Liuyue moved her legs and retreated again! At the same time, her body glowed with a golden light, and the pure gold armor quickly wrapped her body!
She was curvy and tall. Even though she was wearing a man’s disguise… After her figure was exposed, she didn’t intentionally cover her figure.
The previous her might seem youthful, but today, she seemed to have fully grown up as her every move and action was charming and elegant.
That scale flew over directly. Chu Liuyue bent her waist and her body instantly folded at an unimaginable angle.
The scale brushed past one inch away from her body, scarcely making through!
Chu Liuyue could even feel the terrifying aura on her face, and it hurt!
The next moment, she straightened her body, turned around, and raised her bare hand.
A red-golden fire suddenly rose from her palm, which quickly formed a fire wall around her!
The fire burned intensely, and the surrounding temperature instantly increased! It seemed like the air was burning as well!
At the same time, a clear shriek spread across the area!
A gigantic figure clad in red and gold—which contained an intense fire—appeared in front of Chu Liuyue! It was Tuan Zi!
It was as if the tremendous suppression that came from a space and time far away almost crushed this space!
Tuan Zi’s appearance finally caused the scale to stop in its actions as it just floated in midair quietly, not willing to move back at all.
It seemed to have fallen into a stalemate with Tuan Zi.
Seeing this scene, the crowd in the academy was stunned.
“T-that’s the rumored ancient legendary fiend—red-gold heavenly phoenix?”
“Those rumors are actually true… Shangguan Yue really made an agreement with a red-gold heavenly phoenix! An average person wouldn’t even be able to personally see a red-gold heavenly phoenix in their lives, yet Shangguan Yue could make an agreement with one… I can’t even be jealous of her…”
“Her red-gold heavenly phoenix seems to have broken through from a red-tailed phoenix, right? Nobody has such luck! Doesn’t Liu Yintong have a red-tailed phoenix too? However, it really can’t be compared to Shangguan Yue’s…”
“What’s with that scale? It appeared so suddenly and ferociously!”
They heard the crowd in the academy discussing softly.
The faces of Elder Bo Yan and the others in midair were filled with shock, and they took a while to react.
The scale that suddenly appeared was definitely extraordinary! It just easily broke through Rong Xiu’s barrier!
“A scale of this color… Could it be—” Elder Bo Yan suddenly thought of something and gasped!
Chu Liuyue’s eyes focused and stared tightly at the scale.
Red-gold heavenly phoenixes and great phoenix dragons were the top two ancient legendary fiends. From the past till now, these two clans had completely opposing stances, and their competition was very intense.
Of course, other clans didn’t even have the right to participate in this fight. Hence, only after Tuan Zi appeared did the arrogant and domineering great phoenix dragon scale pause for a moment.
It was fearful of Tuan Zi.
And Tuan Zi—
Chu Liuyue squinted her eyes slightly. Even if she was standing behind Tuan Zi and couldn’t see its current expression, their hearts were connected. Without any additional words or actions, they knew what each other was thinking.
She had never seen Tuan Zi this meticulous and careful.
Its personality was playful, and after it broke through to become a red-gold heavenly phoenix, it was even more carefree. Its distinguished bloodline could almost allow it to crush all the other fiends easily except… the great phoenix dragons!
“Yue’er!” Just as this place was falling into a stalemate, Shangguan Jing’s body flashed and returned. He glanced at that scale floating quietly before Chu Liuyue, and his heart sank. This item was extremely sensitive, and it could actually detect that the corpse was with Yue’er! This time, it would be hard to explain it—
Just as the crowd descended into chaos, an earth-shattering dragon roar suddenly sounded from above their heads.
Everyone was stunned and hurriedly looked up.
In the sky not far away, a few figures floated in midair.
Blocked by the academy’s barrier, they couldn’t enter, but they could see the situation within the academy clearly.
“Who is in charge of the barrier?! Who allowed them to go up!” Elder Bo Yan berated angrily.
Outside Ling Xiao Academy was a gigantic barrier. Normally, everyone came in from the main entrance at the side.
And the area above was extremely sensitive—nobody could casually approach it. The defensive powers here were basically the strongest.
Elder Hua Feng’s heart suddenly skipped a beat. “Bo Yan, I’m afraid it’s not our people who didn’t fulfill their duties, but… They’re too strong! The man at the front is… a great phoenix dragon!”
Originally, Elder Bo Yan did not discover it. Through this reminder, he immediately looked over.
With this look, his heart instantly sank. Purplish-golden scale… Dragon roar… If it isn’t a great phoenix dragon, what else could it be?! Then…
He suddenly turned around. That scale should be the great phoenix dragon’s? But why did they target Shangguan Yue?
Coincidentally, Elder Dan Qing also anxiously rushed over at this moment. His face flashed white. “Bo Yan, our people couldn’t stop them! The great phoenix dragon clan is indeed too strong, especially the person at the front, who is the famous Miao Yao!”
Actually, many people didn’t know this name. After all, it happened a thousand years ago. If one didn’t specifically go to find out about it, an average person wouldn’t know so much.
However, they knew the few words ‘great phoenix dragon!’
At this time, the crowd in Qing Ming Square was stunned beyond words. Great phoenix dragon… It hasn’t appeared in a long, long time, right? Why did it suddenly appear today?! And once it did, it rushed straight for Ling Xiao Academy!
Thinking of the series of events that happened earlier, it wasn’t hard to guess that the great phoenix dragon’s true goal this time was Shangguan Jing and Shangguan Yue.
Didn’t they just settle the aristocratic families’ problems in Fangzhou City? A day hasn’t passed yet. How did they offend this great phoenix dragon!?
Elder Bo Yan’s thoughts whirred, and he knitted his brows tightly. This great phoenix dragon came at the wrong time!
His figure flashed as he moved forward and cupped his fists toward Miao Yao and the rest in a very polite manner. “So it’s Senior Miao Yao that came a long way here. We’ve been bad hosts—please forgive us.”
Miao Yao just glanced at him lightly before looking at Chu Liuyue. A cold smile crept onto the corner of his lips. “That item is with you?”
