Chapter 1561: Rong Xiu’s DangerTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“I wonder where the remaining pages are…” muttered Chu Liuyue softly.
In order to hide it back then, she risked suppressing her God Realm, going back to Tianling, and even sacrificing her life.
Now that she had come back, she had to continue finding the remaining ones. If she could gather them, many problems could be solved.
Right at this moment, knocks were suddenly heard outside.
Chu Liuyue retracted her thoughts, stood up, and opened the door. “Rong Xiu?”
The person outside the door was indeed Rong Xiu. It seemed like he had just returned, but his expression didn’t seem right.
Chu Liuyue asked strangely, “What… happened to you?”
Rong Xiu held her hand and returned to the room. After standing in the room, he looked at Chu Liuyue and said in a low voice, “The clan leader is unconscious.”
Chu Liuyue was dazed for a moment and then realized who he was talking about after reacting. “…Clan Leader Baili?”
Rong Xiu lightly nodded. “Yu Mo personally came and delivered the news earlier.”
No wonder he wasn’t around just now… Chu Liuyue knitted her brows. “When did that happen? Why would he suddenly faint out of nowhere?”
More than a month ago, he was clearly fine in Fangzhou City. How long has it been?
Rong Xiu shook his head. “Yu Mo said that ever since he returned to the Sky-Cloud Empire, he has stayed in his room the whole time and didn’t come out. In the beginning, the subordinates didn’t notice anything amiss. Later on, Respected Elder Yu Jing had something urgent to report and kept knocking on the door, but it went unanswered. He became doubtful and forcefully barged in, and that’s when he realized.”
“Respected Elder Yu Jing then immediately told Yu Mo and asked him to come over personally.”
The matter was serious, so someone had to come and report to Rong Xiu.
Chu Liuyue’s heart sank. “That means that nobody knows when Clan Leader Baili became unconscious. And the reason… is also unknown?”
Rong Xiu paused, and his voice became colder. “This news wasn’t suppressed. Now, all the higher-ups in the Sky-Cloud Empire know about this, including the family heads of the 28 divisions.”
Chu Liuyue almost instantly understood. “Someone suspects you?”
Rong Xiu’s thin lips curled up. “Other than me, there doesn’t seem like there’s someone else who wants to do this even more?”
Even though he was smiling, the corner of his lips and his eyes were cold. “All the elders are now waiting for me to go back to the Sky-Cloud Empire, and they plan to investigate this matter properly.”
They said it was to investigate and find out the truth, but they clearly targeted him.
Everyone knew that Baili Chun and Rong Xiu had never been on good terms. Previously, they still hid it a little, but after what happened at Fangzhou City the other day, the two parties had completely fallen apart.
Now that Baili Chun got into trouble once he went back, everyone would naturally suspect Rong Xiu.
Even if Baili Chun was previously humiliated, he was still the Sky-Cloud Empire’s clan leader. If something really happened to him, it definitely couldn’t be covered easily—not to mention that someone might want to take the chance and cause some trouble.
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows tightly. “Then now, you—”
“I’ll make a trip back.” Rong Xiu hugged her, and his chin lightly touched her forehead. “Don’t worry. I’ll quickly settle the matters there and come back.”
Originally, he also planned on following her to Godly Phoenix Mountain.
Chu Liuyue took a deep breath in as the faint cold fragrance slowly spread in her chest. Her heart instantly felt more secure.
“Don’t worry. I can handle my own matters myself. As for the Sky-Cloud Empire’s side… Clan Leader Baili’s status is distinguished after all. If he didn’t set this trap himself, it means that someone else wants to frame you.”
This was largely different from Rong Xiu usurping the throne and forcefully taking power. If it was confirmed that Rong Xiu harmed the clan leader, this would become a flaw that could never be erased.
Rong Xiu could have no cares about the clan leader, and he could rid the latter of his power, but he couldn’t be tainted with the sin of killing the clan leader!
Rong Xiu nodded. He indeed had great power in the Sky-Cloud Empire, but some people still had malicious intentions.
“Some things have to be cleaned sooner or later.” Rong Xiu bent down and kissed her forehead.
Chu Liuyue hugged his waist. “Then, why don’t we make an agreement? Whoever settles their trouble first will go find the other person.”
Rong Xiu raised her face and kissed her lips. “Okay.”
Rong Xiu didn’t stay for too long and quickly left with Yu Mo.
After some simple tidying, Chu Liuyue directly left with Shangguan Jing and headed for Godly Phoenix Mountain the next day.
Originally, Nan Suhuai also wanted to follow them. But considering that Ling Xiao Academy had indeed been in a lot of trouble recently, Nan Suhuai had to take charge of the situation. Chu Liuyue also didn’t want to implicate the academy further, so she still rejected him tactfully.
After a month of recuperation, Tuan Zi’s injuries were basically healed.
Under its guidance, Chu Liuyue and the rest left the academy for Godly Phoenix Mountain.
Godly Phoenix Mountain had always been very mysterious to the people in the God Residence Realm. In recent years, they had been increasingly discreet, so everyone was naturally more curious.
Rumors had it that when the big bang happened many years ago, the great phoenix dragons and the red-gold heavenly phoenixes were born at the same time—one ice and one fire that went against each other.
Over many years, the two ancient legendary fiends’ bloodlines gradually separated and gave birth to the many legendary fiends beneath them. But no matter if it was bloodline or status, these two were still the highest. This was precisely the reason why these two clans were extremely arrogant.
Without their permission, humans couldn’t easily step into their territory.
Chu Liuyue never thought that she would go to Godly Phoenix Mountain to apologize one day. Of course, this was just a tactful way of putting it.
She knew more clearly than anyone else what awaited her on this journey.
