At this point, the sunlight was just nice as it shone into the room through the wooden windows, casting a harmonious light in the room. However, Chu Liuyue’s entire person seemed to be frozen as she couldn’t move at all.
The blood in her body seemed to stop circulating at this point, and her cold limbs also became numb. It was as if someone used a gigantic hammer to smash her brain harshly, causing excruciating pain.
Chu Liuyue held that piece of paper that was light and thin, but it felt like it weighed a ton. She felt like her view had turned white, and every single word on the letter formed a sharp knife as they harshly pierced through her heart.
She almost couldn’t breathe. Shangguan Yue…
Shangguan Yue… This was the name that she had buried at the bottom of her heart, and it was the name that she didn’t even dare to mention when she had dreams in the middle of the night. However, it appeared clearly on the moon rice paper in front of her.
All along, Chu Liuyue thought that she had hidden herself very well. She could even lie to Chu Ning, who had spent day and night with the original Chu Liuyue. However, she didn’t expect someone to know about her true identity long ago.
The other party clearly knew her biggest secret, but she didn’t even know who the other party was.
Chu Liuyue felt like everything was in a whir.
She harshly bit her tongue, letting the sharp pain jolt her awake. Then, she rapidly scanned her surroundings to confirm that nobody else was around before she heaved a sigh of relief and looked at the letter.
There was only that one line on the letter, nothing else.
Chu Liuyue compared the sentence’s handwriting and the handwriting on the envelope and realized that they were written by the same person.
If she had seen such strong and forceful handwriting before, she would definitely remember it. But it was a pity that nobody within her circle—no matter in her previous life or current life—had such handwriting.
However, the other party clearly recognized her. Their status wasn’t low, and they were very capable. If not, it would be impossible for them to get their hands on the moon rice paper.
Chu Liuyue stared at the letter and was immersed in deep thought. Who can it be… I have been staying in Country Yao Chen’s Imperial City ever since I was reborn. This place is miles away from Tianling Dynasty, and I have no way of contacting people from my past. Besides, after experiencing the inhumane torture in the royal family’s ancestral hall, I have already lost all confidence in everything from the past.
Even Mu Qinghe, who I hadn’t suspected before, had betrayed me. What about the rest?
The biggest secret—my rebirth—is my greatest trump card. Originally, I thought I could become stronger step by step before going back and taking my revenge against all of those people—to get back whatever belongs to me! However, this letter suddenly made me realize that things are developing in an uncontrollable direction.
“Long time no see… Long time no see…” muttered Chu Liuyue softly as countless faces flashed across her mind. This tone seems to be rather familiar… But I can’t recall who the other party is!
At this point, she suddenly detected a weird movement in her dantian.
Chu Liuyue gathered her focus and looked inside herself. She saw the water droplet quietly floating in her dantian.
Below it, the legendary three-eyed eagle—which was apportioned by the black fire in the heavenly square cauldron—was harshly staring at…
Both fiends were fighting through the transparent heavenly cauldron. Looking at Tuan Zi’s patches of burnt fur, it seemed like they had been in a tense situation for quite some time.
Chu Liuyue held her forehead in exasperation. “Why did you guys fight again? It hasn’t been two days since we’ve left Jiuyou Tower, but you’ve already fought five times. Isn’t it enough?”
Tuan Zi still didn’t move as it shot a deadly stare at the legendary three-eyed eagle opposite it.
Even though the legendary three-eyed eagle was a legendary fiend, it had no physical body now and was left with only a bit of its soul stored in the karmic fire—which was of similar size to Tuan Zi.
The legendary three-eyed eagle’s bloody eyes were cold and nonchalant. If it weren’t stuck in this Heavenly Square Cauldron, it would’ve long rushed out and killed this brazen thing a thousand times.
Thinking back, I was a famous and respected fiend, yet I’ve ended up fighting with this mere blood ferret. How humiliating!
Looking at the two fiends that were still baring their teeth at each other, Chu Liuyue was quiet for a while before she looked at Tuan Zi and said, “Tuan Zi, I won’t stand up for you if you fight again.”
Tuan Zi shook its tail and angrily picked it up.
Chu Liuyue then realized that a portion of it was burnt. “…You’re not angry because of this, right?”
Tuan Zi harshly nodded—It is because of this! My beautiful fur has been ruined! I have never suffered such indignance before! If I don’t take revenge, how can I have the face to continue living?
Staring at its furious and righteous appearance, Chu Liuyue was a little speechless. “Isn’t this because you first infuriated it…”
Even though she didn’t constantly observe the happenings in her dantian, it didn’t mean that she did not know anything.
Tuan Zi was stumped.
Mockery flashed across the legendary three-eyed eagle’s eyes. “A mere third-grade fiend with not much power, but a lot of problems.”
Tuan Zi was infuriated!
Chu Liuyue calmly glanced at the legendary three-eyed eagle. “You’re a legendary fiend, yet you’re still stuck here and fighting it out with a ‘mere third-grade fiend.’”
The legendary three-eyed eagle was stunned and instantly felt embarrassed as it harshly flung its wings. If I weren’t stuck in this Heavenly Square Cauldron, I wouldn’t have to experience such humiliation!
Another question suddenly popped up in Chu Liuyue’s heart when she saw that the two fiends had temporarily paused their fight: Tuan Zi is indeed just a third-grade blood ferret, so logically speaking, it should respect and fear the legendary three-eyed eagle.
However, the situation is completely not the case. Tuan Zi seems to be… not as fearful and respectful of higher-grade fiends. When it was at Wan Ling Mountain, it faced the black flying python in the same manner, but the key is that the legendary three-eyed eagle is a legendary fiend! What kind of secrets is Tuan Zi hiding?
Chu Liuyue looked at Tuan Zi in deep thought before suddenly saying, “I remember that a third-grade blood ferret has a chance of breaking through and raising its grade. Tuan Zi, what about you?”
Tuan Zi still held its tail indignantly as if it didn’t care about this problem.
Chu Liuyue thought for a while and felt that her question had no meaning. Tuan Zi wanted to follow her, and she could feel Tuan Zi’s liking and dependence on her.
Perhaps this is enough. As for those mysteries… Perhaps they will solve themselves in the future.
Chu Liuyue opened her eyes and stared at the letter in her hands.
After a while, she placed the letter into the Cosmic Bag.
Si family residence, study room.
Si Ting looked at Si Ye, and his cold and handsome face had an obvious look of disapproval. “You’re saying that you want me to find Chu Liuyue and ask her about Rong Zhen’s whereabouts?”
Si Ye coughed. “I know you don’t like doing such things, but… this is a grave matter, and I will only feel assured if you do it.”
Si Ting paused for a while and coldly said, “I won’t go.”
