Rong Xiu took it, and the moment he touched the hammer, he raised his eyebrows and narrowed his eyes.
Seeing his reaction, Chu Liuyue was even more certain of her guess.
Rong Xiu was silent for a moment before looking up.
The two of them gazed at each other for a moment and saw through each other’s thoughts. The aura inside… is clearly very similar to…
Wei Ze stared at the two of them, his back already drenched in sweat. These two are very cunning. Could it be that they have really discovered something…
Just as he was feeling extremely apprehensive, Rong Xiu suddenly walked over with the hammer.
Wei Ze held his breath. Rong Xiu’s every step seemed to be stepping on his heart!
Soon, Rong Xiu stood one step away from Wei Ze. Then, he handed the hammer over with a relaxed expression and chuckled. “Family Head, why are you so nervous? I’ll return the item to you.”
Wei Ze looked at Rong Xiu suspiciously. After confirming that he wasn’t joking, he took the hammer.
The moment the item landed in his hand, his heart—which had been hanging in his throat—finally relaxed.
However, Rong Xiu’s next sentence immediately made him nervous. “By the way, I suddenly remembered something. Why haven’t I seen the eldest son of the Wei family along the way?”
The eldest son of the Wei family was Wei Xiping. Back then, he was expelled from Ling Xiao Academy because he colluded with outsiders and tried to frame Chu Liuyue and Rong Xiu.
Since then, Wei Xiping had never appeared again.
At this moment, when Rong Xiu suddenly mentioned it, many people didn’t even realize who he was talking about.
Wei Ze’s heart sank! He subconsciously tightened his grip on the hammer in his hand and quickly glanced at Rong Xiu.
However, Rong Xiu’s gaze was as deep as the sea, and his expression was calm and indifferent. Nothing could be seen.
Wei Ze said reluctantly, “Why… why are you suddenly asking this?”
Rong Xiu replied, “No reason. I just saw you and suddenly thought of him. I was just asking casually. Is it… inconvenient for the family head to answer?”
Wei Ze paused and said, “There’s nothing making it difficult to answer. He… has disappeared since he left Ling Xiao Academy. We also don’t know where he is now.”
Rong Xiu smiled very faintly. “He’s your son. Although he made a mistake back then, he didn’t deserve to die. I didn’t expect you to be so heartless…”
Wei Ze frowned and said coldly, “He did something wrong and humiliated the Wei family! This is what he deserves. How can we be heartless?!”
It seemed that he was still filled with anger at the mention of Wei Xiping.
“I see…” Rong Xiu revealed a trace of regret. “What a pity. I heard that you originally valued him very much to succeed the position of Wei family head.”
Wei Ze’s face was ashen, and it was obvious that he didn’t want to talk about it anymore. He turned around and left.
When he left, he put away the hammer.
Rong Xiu stared at his back view meaningfully and didn’t say anything else.
“Girlie.” Tang Ke’s voice sounded again. “Congratulations, you’ve… won!”
This immediately attracted everyone’s attention.
Chu Liuyue raised her head slightly, and her red lips curled up. “Thank you, Senior Tang Ke.”
Tang Ke said, “My inheritance is placed behind one of the ten bronze doors. You can now choose one. If you can choose the right one, everything will be yours! If you can’t choose the right one… you can only blame yourself for not being fated with me.”
The crowd exchanged glances.
They originally thought that after winning this round, Chu Liuyue would be able to directly obtain Tang Ke’s inheritance. Who knew that she would have to choose again?
Choosing one out of the ten doors was too low a chance!
However, Chu Liuyue didn’t seem surprised as she smiled and nodded slightly. “Okay.”
She had long known that Tang Ke wouldn’t give everything away so easily. It was normal for him to put this up.
Tang Ke was rather surprised to see her agree so readily. “You agreed so readily. Aren’t you worried that you’ll end up with nothing?”
Chu Liuyue shook her head and smiled in relief. “I’ve already done everything I can. As for whether I can have this opportunity or not, it’s up to fate. No matter what the outcome is, I have no regrets.”
Tang Ke paused for a moment before suddenly laughing out loud. “Hahahaha, you’re quite interesting! Alright, I’ll clear the area for you now. You can choose!”
As soon as he finished speaking, a powerful force swept over and headed straight for everyone! Right on the heels of that, the crowd felt as if they were suddenly pulled by something, and their vision instantly went dark!
Chu Liuyue turned around.
The huge space became empty, leaving her alone.
Oh no, Rong Xiu was here too.
Chu Liuyue squinted her eyes.
Tang Ke’s voice sounded again. “You’re Rong Xiu, right?”
Rong Xiu raised his brows.
“Although you didn’t participate in the competition just now, the Sharp-Edged Halberd has already recognized you as its master. After all, I personally refined it. On account of it, I’ll give you a chance. After this girl chooses, you can also choose once.”
Rong Xiu cupped fists with both hands. “Thank you, Senior Tang Ke.”
Chu Liuyue stroked her chin. Tsk, to think that I had worked so hard before and finally got such a chance. However, Rong Xiu could easily obtain it. From beginning to end, he doesn’t seem to have done anything, right? His luck is really incomparable…
“Girlie, you go first.”
Chu Liuyue retracted her thoughts and looked at the ten doors around her.
Every door was exactly the same. There was no difference.
If it were someone else, they would really have to gamble. Unfortunately, she wasn’t ‘someone else.’
With a thought, the Celestial Shield appeared in her hand.
The Celestial Shield fell to the ground, and several cracks spread!
At this moment, the entire space seemed to tremble!
