2058 Just Say the Word
“That’s right! You were indeed instructed by me to open the door and enter this place! However, I originally thought that you would enter by yourself. I didn’t expect you to bring so many people.” Tang Ke’s deep voice echoed in the huge space.
Everyone had different expressions when they heard this. Why do these words… sound so uncomfortable? So Tang Ke chose Chu Liuyue alone from the start, and we were able to enter because of Chu Liuyue?
This made the people who were waiting to see Chu Liuyue make a fool of herself speechless, and they felt very upset.
Anyone who heard this would probably be in a bad mood.
On the other hand, Shangguan Jing was very happy. Anyway, if Yue’er is successful, I will be proud! If Yue’er really inherits Tang Ke’s legacy in the end, I will really be happier and more excited than if I had obtained it!
Rong Xiu stood at the side with his hands behind his back.
Upon hearing this, he turned his head slightly and glanced at Chu Liuyue. His originally cold eyes carried a faint smile.
Chu Liuyue’s lips curved up slightly. “I was slow-witted and didn’t understand Senior’s intentions.”
Although she said that, her expression was relaxed, and there was no regret or frustration.
Tang Ke seemed a little surprised. “Don’t you think it’s a pity?”
“What’s a pity?”
“What a pity… Originally, you could’ve enjoyed such a great opportunity alone! Girlie, I can give you another chance now. As long as you nod your head, I can send everyone else out now, leaving you alone. At that time, all of my inheritance will be inherited by you!”
As soon as these words were spoken, everyone was shocked, and there was an uproar!
“Senior Tang Ke!” Finally, someone in the crowd couldn’t hold back and stepped forward to speak. “Senior, think twice! Although we can’t open that door, in terms of talent and ability as Armory Refinement Masters, we’re not inferior to Shangguan Yue at all. In fact, we’re even better! If you really want to choose someone to inherit the legacy, they must be the most outstanding person in the world. Shangguan Yue… might not be able to take on this role!”
“That’s right! Shangguan Yue’s cultivation as a warrior is indeed outstanding; she can fight a legendary warrior when she’s at the true god realm! But in terms of armory refinement, she might not be your best choice. You must consider it more!”
“Senior Tang Ke…”
Various voices kept coming, all of them trying to dissuade Tang Ke from making this decision.
In their opinion, if Tang Ke really chose Chu Liuyue, it would be a huge mistake without any reason.
Which one of the people present wasn’t better at refining Yuan instruments than her? In terms of strength and experience… She was the one without any competitiveness!
They really didn’t know what was wrong with Tang Ke to make such a choice!
Tang Ke asked, “Girlie, what do you think?”
Chu Liuyue scoffed in her heart. Senior Tang Ke is really not easy to deal with. If he really wanted to pass the inheritance to me he could’ve let me in alone from the beginning and rejected the rest. Why does he have to do this now?
He has already said that. If I choose to chase these people out now, everyone will point their fingers at me! To Tang Ke, this is an extremely simple matter. After all, he is the master here.
However, it would cause me a lot of trouble. Although I’m not afraid, I don’t want to take the blame for no reason.
Hence, she looked up and smiled. “Senior Tang Ke, it’s a supreme honor to be able to inherit your legacy. But since I brought them in, there’s naturally no reason to chase them out now. So…”
“So you mean that you want to keep them?” Tang Ke asked. “Do you know that if this is the case, it means that you have to compete with them again? You know how hard it is without me reminding you, right?
Chu Liuyue nodded. “I understand, and I’m willing to compete fairly with everyone. Only those with talent and opportunities can obtain your inheritance. This is the most suitable, right?”
After Chu Liuyue said that, the surroundings fell into a strange silence.
The crowd, who had been giving charity speeches just now, quietened down and looked at Chu Liuyue with different gazes.
From their standpoint, it was normal for them to say those words. After all, the opportunity was right in front of them.
They had to try to fight for it.
But if they were Chu Liuyue, they wouldn’t say such things like her.
It was Tang Ke’s inheritance! In the world, there were countless Armory Refinement Masters who dreamed of it!
Now, as long as she spoke, it would be easy for her to get it. Yet, she rejected him?
She even said that she wanted to compete with them…
Is there something wrong with her brain? Or does she think that she will definitely win?
“Peach Blossom Dock’s Master is indeed worthy of her reputation. Her style of doing things is open and honest! We really admire her magnanimity!” Wei Ze cupped fists with both hands and spoke with a smile, but his tone sounded a little shady.
“Master Yue, it seems like you’re confident that you can get first place in the end?”
Chu Liuyue glanced at him, and her eyes curved up. “Compared to my seniors, I’m still inexperienced and really not worth mentioning. It’s already a rare blessing to be able to obtain Senior Tang Ke’s recognition today and compete with my seniors.”
Her tone was rather humble.
As soon as she said this, many people’s expressions softened. Shangguan Yue doesn’t seem to be as arrogant and despotic as the rumors say? Moreover, her actions are equivalent to giving others a chance.
Everyone naturally had a better impression of her.
It was good for everyone to compete fairly and rely on their own abilities.
The tense atmosphere eased a lot.
Wei Ze cursed in his heart. Cunning! It is just a nice thing to say! If it weren’t for the fact that she’s afraid of these people and is worried that she will be surrounded when she goes out, would she have made such a choice and said such words?
However, the wind had already changed, and Wei Ze knew that it wasn’t good to keep suppressing Chu Liuyue. Thus, he could only swing his sleeves. “Then, we’ll wait and see how elegant Master Yue is!”
Tang Ke asked, “Are you sure?”
Chu Liuyue nodded. “I’ve made up my mind. Senior Tang Ke, please enlighten me!”
Hearing this, Tang Ke laughed out loud again. “Alright! Since you say so, I’ll treat everyone equally! It’s very simple to obtain my inheritance. The lightning here was accumulated by me for 10,000 years! From now on, you can think of any way to devour it! There’s no time limit for this competition! Whoever can devour the most will be the final winner!”
“Of course, if any of you explode and die because you can’t withstand the power of the lightning, I won’t take responsibility. You can control this scale yourself!”
“The final victor will be able to open these ten bronze doors and obtain my inheritance!”
