Chapter 281: Dijing Yuan Meridian

The crowd couldn’t understand Mu Qinghe’s thoughts, and all of them quietened down.

On the other hand, Chu Liuyue was very calm. She sat down as if nothing had happened, allowing all sorts of gazes to size her up.

She could roughly guess that Mu Qinghe had thought of the past, but she didn’t know where his anger came from.

After meeting him, she realized that Mu Qinghe’s personality seemed to have changed. Even though he was also quiet in the past, he wasn’t as temperamental.

Emperor Jiawen eased the situation. “Hehe, Lieutenant Mu, didn’t you say last night that you came here to pick some people to follow you back and cultivate? Is that true?”

Once this was said, everyone’s attention immediately shifted to Mu Qinghe.

Countless pairs of eyes were filled with hope and excitement.

Follow Mu Qinghe back?

Doesn’t that mean going to the Tianling Dynasty?

That’s an enormous opportunity!

The Tianling Dynasty is a very formidable existence. In the entire Country Yao Chen, only Emperor Jiawen has the right to go there. Others can’t even think about it, yet we have such a chance now!

Mu Qinghe actually came to pick people personally.

“That’s right.”

Mu Qinghe’s two simple words immediately caused the crowd’s hearts to rise.

Even though Emperor Jiawen already knew about this yesterday, he still felt very emotional when talking about it now. His pair of old and always unaffected eyes were filled with unconcealable excitement and glory.

“Almost all of Country Yao Chen’s outstanding talents are here. Do you have anyone that you like here?”

Other than the princes and princesses, important characters from aristocratic families, Tian Lu Academy’s Elder Sun, and the others were seated here.

Of course, there was also Fu Yunshan and Cheng Han.

Upon hearing Mu Qinghe’s definite answer, the two of them looked at each other, and they could see desire in the other party’s eyes.

Mu Qinghe really came here to pick people, and he wants to bring them back to the Tianling Dynasty! I really don’t know what kind of luck Country Yao Chen has! But since we’re here, we might be able to join in! After all, there are quite a few outstanding talents in our academies!

If they can be chosen… their future possibilities are endless!

Mu Qinghe’s gaze lightly swept past the crowd.

All those who were looked at by him unwittingly sat up straight and held in their breaths.

“Lieutenant Mu.” Rong Jin suddenly stood up. “May I know if I-I can recommend myself?”

Rong Jin habitually wanted to say ‘as the prince,’ but he suddenly realized that even his father didn’t dare to pull his rank in front of Mu Qinghe. Thus, he hurriedly changed his sentence.

Emperor Jiawen was also very surprised because he didn’t expect Rong Jin to suddenly take the initiative and speak up.

But from another perspective, Rong Jin was indeed the most talented at cultivation amongst his prince brothers. Hence, Rong Jin could give it a try.

If even he couldn’t gain Mu Qinghe’s approval, then the others weren’t even worth mentioning. After all, Rong Jin was the Crown Prince, and he should have some courage.

Mu Qinghe glanced at him. “Stage-four warrior?”

This kind of strong warrior just needed to glance at someone to tell their cultivation level.

Rong Jin nodded nervously. “I should be able to break through and become a stage-five warrior in another month’s time.”

The crowd looked at Rong Jin in shock.

It wasn’t that easy to break through and become a stage-five warrior. Some people would forever be stuck in front of that door for the rest of their lives.

But since Rong Jin dared to say this in public, he had to be very confident in himself.

Noticing the crowd’s reaction, Rong Jin couldn’t help but feel delighted. Even though he lost to Heng Jingchuo during the Qing Jiao Competition a few days ago and was even poisoned by him, it wasn’t completely disadvantageous.

After clearing the remaining poison in his body, Rong Jin shockingly discovered that he had signs of breaking through.

He had been diligently cultivating in the past two days, and he could vaguely touch the invisible barrier. Hence, he was certain that he could definitely break through in another month’s time.

This was also a surprise for him, and he planned to announce it when he actually broke through. However, he couldn’t care about that now.

As long as I can get Mu Qinghe’s praise, then…

“Should be? There’s no should or should not in cultivation. As long as you haven’t broken through, you’re still a stage-four warrior.” Mu Qinghe’s voice was cold, sounding as if he was very unaffected.

Rong Jin was stunned. He looked up and saw the obvious nonchalance in Mu Qinghe’s eyes.

That was the attitude of one staring at an ant!

Rong Jin was dazed. “I…”

“You should already be in your twenties, right?”

Rong Jin hesitantly nodded.

Mu Qinghe lightly grunted. “Then, how do you have the cheek to stand here and say that you want to recommend yourself? How… do you have the right?”

Rong Jin never expected himself to be humiliated by Mu Qinghe in front of so many people. His face immediately flushed red.

Mu Qinghe’s every word made him embarrassed to no end.

Rong Jin had always been talented since he was young, and he had always been praised. This was the first time someone had looked down on him.

Emperor Jiawen looked very awkward.

Rong Zhen thought for a while before she playfully smiled and said, “Lieutenant Mu, my brother is already the most outstanding one. If you don’t like him, then nobody else here can fit your standards.”

Rong Zhen smiled brightly, and her tone was upbeat as if she were talking in a coy manner.

Mu Qinghe glanced at her.

Rong Zhen’s heart beat really quickly; she was nervous yet expectant.

“What are you?” spat Mu Qinghe coldly.

Rong Zhen’s smile instantly froze.

The palace fell into dead silence.

As her lips curved up, Chu Liuyue looked down and played with the empty cup in her hands.

Mu Qinghe climbed up from the very bottom of the ladder, so he is very resilient. After he became my henchman, many women wanted to give themselves to him. Skinny, chubby, pretty, and ugly. Which has he not seen before? But even until my death, he still didn’t have a wife or concubine even though he was 27 years old.

Rong Zhen truly doesn’t meet his standards. I wonder where she got her confidence from, which made her think that Mu Qinghe would buy into her methods.

“I-I…” Rong Zhen had never been this humiliated in public, and her face—covered with makeup—became as pale as ever.

Emperor Jiawen scolded Rong Zhen harshly in his heart. How stupid! Didn’t she see that even I don’t dare to put in a good word for Rong Jin? Yet, she still dared to say that… She’s really embarrassing the entire royal family!

“This isn’t a place for you to speak!” hollered Emperor Jiawen harshly.

Tears welled up in Rong Zhen’s eyes, and she lowered her gaze.

The Empress looked behind and ordered the people behind her to pull Rong Zhen to make her sit down.

The atmosphere in the palace became even stiffer.

Mu Qinghe asked, “Who here has the Dijing Yuan meridian?”

Dijing Yuan meridian!

Every single word made everyone dazed.

How many years did it take for someone with the Dijing Yuan meridian to appear? It didn’t matter if Mu Qinghe didn’t say anything, but he made an extremely high demand once he did!

If he is finding people according to his standards, I’m afraid nobody here will pass!

“I think there isn’t any.”

Chu Liuyue’s heart fluttered, and she stood up. “I have it.”
