1724 Finish Reading

She had already forcefully memorized half of the entire song. Additionally, after she heard it so many times, the initial harsh and painful torture was unwittingly reduced.

The current Chu Liuyue could basically be said to be listening peacefully to the zither song as she flipped the music score before her.

From more than 10,000 pieces of paper to the current last three… Other than her, nobody knew what kind of torture and pain she had suffered in between.

But luckily… Everything was finally going to end!

The three transparent pieces of paper floated before her quietly.

Chu Liuyue gathered her focus and looked at them calmly. Then, she chose the one in the middle.

The moment she held it, the rays of light on the transparent paper turned. However, Chu Liuyue seemed to be used to it, as she read calmly.

She was overly focused, causing the spectating crowd to unwittingly quieten down as if they were afraid that they would disturb something.

Nan Yifan stared at her for a while. His examining and doubtful gaze darted back and forth between her and the transparent paper in her hands.

He seemed to be doubting something, but he didn’t dare to confirm it.

After much thinking, he felt his head ache, and he couldn’t help but rub his temples.

“Master.” A rather weak voice sounded.

Nan Yifan turned around.

Elder Wu Peng had silently walked behind him at some point.

When Nan Yifan saw that it was him, his expression became softer. “Elder Wu Peng, what’s wrong?”

Elder Wu Peng glanced at Nan Yiyi at the side and softly said, “Master, Second Missy didn’t purposely cause things to end up in this state…”

He had followed Nan Yifan for many years and could naturally tell that the latter’s heart ached for Nan Yiyi, but he also blamed her a little.

The original training ended up in this state. Nobody wanted to see this.

Nan Yifan thought that Wu Peng wanted to stand up for Nan Yiyi, so he knitted his brows. “Elder Wu Peng, at this point, there really is no need to say some things—”

“Master, do you know why Second Missy kept chasing after them relentlessly?” Elder Wu Peng sighed. “If it’s really because of a personal grudge… Not only you, but even I and Eldest Young Master would never agree.”

This caused Nan Yifan’s expression to change slightly. He knew Elder Wu Peng’s character clearly—the latter really wouldn’t allow Nan Yiyi to be willful.

As for Nan Yuxing? Even though his performance today was disappointing, anyone with their pearl of essence broken wouldn’t be able to calm down in such a short amount of time.

Does that mean… there is another reason behind this? Nan Yifan’s expression became much more stern. “If she has any troubles, Elder Wu Peng, do tell me.”

Elder Wu Peng paused. “The item you told Second Missy to find… seems to be with Shangguan Yue.”

Nan Yifan’s expression instantly changed.

He first glanced at his surroundings. After confirming that those people’s attention was all on Shangguan Yue, he then carefully asked, “Really?”

Elder Wu Peng nodded lightly. “I used my geomantic compass to calculate it, and Second Missy has also detected that item was aura on her, so it shouldn’t be wrong.”

Nan Yifan knitted his brows tightly and fell silent. If that is really so, it is understandable why Nan Yiyi keeps going after Shangguan Yue…

“Why would that item be with her?” Nan Yifan couldn’t understand. “I recall that you seem to have entered the God-Killing Tumulus together?”

Elder Wu Peng nodded and repeated the previous incident once.

Nan Yifan felt conflicted after hearing it.

Previously, Nan Yiyi only said that the two parties had a conflict in the God-Killing Tumulus, but she didn’t explain the beginning and the end properly. Now that Elder Wu Peng said it, he finally understood many things.

Even though Nan Yiyi did willingly provoke them at first and caused trouble for the other party, they did follow Shangguan Yue and the rest to find that item in the end. That was also the reason why they were dragged into the black wall.

The dead were dead, and the injured were injured.

In that case, he really couldn’t completely blame Nan Yiyi.

“This means that they found the item before you?” Nan Yifan’s expression was cold.

Elder Wu Peng thought for a moment and shook his head. “Actually… I think that they didn’t have much time to find the item after they entered the God-Killing Tumulus. Besides, from start to end, Shangguan Yue didn’t seem to know what exactly we were looking for…”

The words she said when she fought with Nan Yiyi in the end didn’t seem to be a lie.

Nan Yifan frowned. “You’re saying…”

Elder Wu Peng did not speak for a moment and looked up.

In the transparent wall, the figure behind the totem sat quietly and stubbornly—it was as if she were meditating. No matter how chaotic the outside world was, she wouldn’t be affected at all.

At this very moment, her heart and eyes only had the few transparent pieces of paper.

“…Perhaps, that item was originally with her!”

Chu Liuyue looked at the music score in her hands.

Rays of light turned on it and formed into music symbols that kept overlapping with the zither sounds in her mind. But in the middle, it finally got stuck again.

Chu Liuyue lightly sighed as if she had already predicted this outcome. She didn’t look disappointed as she nonchalantly threw the paper in her hands away.

There were two pieces of paper remaining. She didn’t even look at them as she directly took the one on the right.

Suddenly, she paused in her actions and looked up.

In the space that she was in… With her as the center, it was perfectly split into two parts.

The left side was thick black.

The right side was filled with light.

The waiting crowd was actually on that side. Hence, they could see her, and she could also see them.

In the darkness that wouldn’t go away hid a person and a zither.

“Senior Ah Jing.” Chu Liuyue turned her face slightly and looked toward that side. Even if all she saw was pitch black, she could still see a blurred figure at the end of the darkness.

The sound of the zither stopped.

“Hm?” A lazy and nonchalant voice sounded, and it sounded like it was even more flirtatious than the zither sound.

Chu Liuyue raised her eyebrows slightly. “It has really been hard on you. You’ve spent a lot of effort.”

Ah Jing smiled and said, “Oh? Why do you say that?”

Chu Liuyue raised her hand and held the other piece of paper. “If I haven’t guessed wrongly, no matter which piece I read first, the ending will be the same, right?”

Her lips curled up into a faint smile. “The so-called authenticity of the music score is actually controlled by your thoughts, right? It isn’t important which piece of paper I leave behind because the true music score will definitely be the last one!”

He wanted her to finish reading all the music scores!
