Chapter 331: Surveillance

This shocked Chu Liuyue. “She was looking for me?”

“Yeah! I don’t know what she wanted to do! When I unintentionally passed by your place yesterday, I coincidentally saw her pacing up and down outside your door. I asked her what was going on, but she refused to speak and left in a hurry.”

Mu Hongyu shrugged her shoulders and pouted. “Perhaps she wanted to do something secretly to harm you when you weren’t around.”

Chu Liuyue squinted her eyes, and her fingers lightly knocked on the table. It is rare for Chu Xianmin to look for me willingly. But perhaps it is because of the mastermind behind the Red Blood Gu incident. After all, I had clearly felt the unknown threat at the Qing Jiao Competition.

Chu Liuyue had a feeling that the other party was coming for her. Then, Chu Xianmin’s side…

“Did Chu Xianmin come to the academy today?” asked Chu Liuyue.

“I’m not sure, but I think she did. Do you want to go look for her?”


Mu Hongyu was slightly worried. Chu Xianmin was very scheming, and she liked to take revenge. It definitely wasn’t anything good for her to look for Chu Liuyue willingly.

Besides, the Crown Prince even wanted to marry Chu Liuyue as the Crown Princess in front of everyone. This was akin to harshly slapping Chu Xianmin across her face.

Chu Xianmin probably hated Chu Liuyue to death now!

But after much thought, Mu Hongyu felt that her worries were unnecessary. How can Chu Xianmin possibly be Chu Liuyue’s match?

“Okay, go ahead then! I’ll confirm Mother’s accommodation after she arrives here!”

Chu Liuyue nodded and stood up, prepared to leave.

Liao Zhongshu also stood up abruptly. “Liuyue, I’m about to leave as well. You don’t know where Chu Xianmin stays, right? Why don’t I bring you over?”

The two of them looked at each other.

Chu Liuyue nodded. “Sure.”

The two of them walked toward Chu Xianmin’s residence.

Liao Zhongshu sighed lightly. “Liuyue, I owe you my life. If there’s anything you need in the future, feel free to let me know.”

Chu Liuyue looked at him.

Liao Zhongshu had just recovered, and his face was still very pale. However, the gaze in his eyes was very genuine.

“Perhaps the current me can’t help you much, but just a word from you, and I’ll go to the ends of the world to complete the task.”

Chu Liuyue looked at him for a while and lightly nodded. “That’s a deal.”

Liao Zhongshu smiled in relief.

The two of them continued to walk for a distance.

Liao Zhongshu stood still and pointed at a place in front. “That’s Chu Xianmin’s residence.”

As Chu Xianmin’s grades were outstanding when she entered the academy, she didn’t stay with anyone else.

“I’ll wait here for you.”

Chu Liuyue couldn’t help thinking that Liao Zhongshu was a smart person; he knew what to do at the right time.

She smiled even more and walked in that direction.

The moment she reached the door, it was pulled open from the inside.

Chu Xianmin—who was planning to go out—was instantly stunned when she looked up and saw Chu Liuyue. “You… Why are you here?!”

Chu Liuyue sized Chu Xianmin up.

It had just been a night, but Chu Xianmin looked much more haggard. Even though Chu Xianmin had used a face veil to cover her face, one could still vaguely see the dark-green color under her eyes. Her pair of bloodshot and exhausted eyes also showed that she wasn’t in good condition.

“You were looking for me yesterday?”

Chu Liuyue’s question caused a hint of hesitation to flash across Chu Xianmin’s eyes. “N-no…”

Chu Liuyue ignored her, directly walked past her, and entered the house. She then lightly said, “You have 15 minutes.”

Chu Xianmin turned around and felt that the pair of black eyes seemed to have seen through her.

She clenched her teeth, closed the door, turned around, and stood opposite Chu Liuyue. “I… That person came again yesterday.”

Chu Liuyue raised her brows. “When?”

Chu Xianmin shook her head. “He had already visited by the time I returned to the academy after sending the Crown Prince back. I didn’t see anyone else, but he left something behind.”

As she talked, she walked to the table and opened a box.

Chu Liuyue saw it from the corner of her eyes, and she focused on it. It’s actually… a letter?

Chu Xianmin handed the letter to Chu Liuyue.

It was a letter in a red envelope with a strange pattern printed on it. There was a line of words in the middle. “Dear Chu Liuyue.”

The handwriting was strong and smooth. However, Chu Liuyue felt intense murderous intent from it.

She didn’t take the letter and looked up at Chu Xianmin instead.

Chu Xianmin immediately said, “I promise I didn’t say anything about you! I also don’t know why he directly wrote a letter to you… I really don’t know!”

She only knew that the other party purposely made her pass Chu Liuyue the letter, which clearly meant that he knew what had happened between them.

This was a warning to her!

Ever since she received the letter the day before, Chu Xianmin had been very uneasy and filled with worry.

She originally thought that the other party would directly kill her, but everything else was normal other than this letter.

This, however, made her even more petrified as she didn’t know what punishment awaited her.

After she saw the letter, she hesitated for quite some time before deciding to find Chu Liuyue. However, Chu Liuyue wasn’t in.

After returning home, she couldn’t sleep for the entire night and thought about this incident the whole time, hesitating about what she should do.

Facing Chu Liuyue’s question, Chu XIanmin instinctively denied it because she had already decided to hide the letter.

Who knew if this was a test from the other party?

But now that Chu Liuyue was right in front of her, she felt scared and still decided to pass her the letter.

Chu Liuyue took the letter.

Chu Xianmin heaved a sigh of relief for some reason and saw that Chu Liuyue was about to stand up and leave.

She was shocked. “are you not going to open it here? Aren’t you afraid that I’m lying to you?”

Chu Liuyue nonchalantly looked at her. She was too lazy to explain that there was half a Xuan formation on top of the letter.

This Xuan formation was of a pretty high level, and even the academy’s elders might not be able to form it.

Chu Xianmin knew nothing about Xuan formations, so she wouldn’t even recognize it.

To open this letter, one must fill the remaining half of the formation.

Chu Xianmin had no chance of doing anything to the letter. Besides, she didn’t have such courage at this point.

For some reason, Chu Xianmin felt like she had become much smaller and more laughable even though Chu Liuyue didn’t say a single word and just stared at her quietly.

She knowingly shut her mouth.

Chu Liuyue put away the letter and left.

Chu Xianmin suddenly thought of something and hurriedly yelled, “Oh yes! Since I’ve already been discovered and I’ve passed the letter to you, can you give me the antidote to the poison in my body?”

Once she thought of the horrifying scene of the poison acting up, her hair would stand on end, and she would be petrified for the entire night.

“I’m no longer of use to you now. P-please, let me off!”

Chu Liuyue glanced at Chu Xianmin from the side, and her gaze lightly swept past her. “You don’t have much use for me now, but… I want you to watch someone for me.”

Chu Xianmin was dazed. “Who?”

“Crown Prince Rong Jin.”
