“Chu Liuyue seems to stay on the second floor… She’s more talented as a Xuan Master and heavenly doctor. Why doesn’t she go to the third and fourth floors?” Mo Cang muttered curiously, oblivious to Cheng Han’s reaction.

This made Cheng Han worry even more.

That’s right! If she didn’t know something, why would Chu Liuyue only remain on the second floor and not go to the other floors? Also, she started reading the other books after she found that one scroll on Earth-stage warrior techniques! She is clearly looking for something!

Cheng Han was anxious, but he couldn’t rush in and stop Chu Liuyue!

Words were still appearing on the stone tablet.

Chu Liuyue was still going through the books on the second floor at lightning speed.

Another book.

Another book.

And another book.

Cheng Han stood there unmoved. The others dared not move and waited alongside him.

After a long while, Elder Mo Cang spoke up. “…Director, Chu Liuyue is going to be in there for a while. You… don’t intend to wait here, do you?”

Cheng Han was even more frustrated. Of course, I know! That is what I am most worried about!

He didn’t expect Chu Liuyue to find and read the Jingshen Finger, but staying here would be strange and would most definitely attract a lot of people’s attention!

“Observe carefully! Record down all the books that Chu Liuyue has gone through!” With that, he turned and left.

Elder Mo Cang found Cheng Han’s reaction strange, and he turned to look at the library again. What’s the director worried about?

After Cheng Han and Elder Mo Cang left, only the two people in charge of guarding the library were left.

Given the way things had developed, they dared not let their guard down, and they continued watching her closely.

Time passed, and it was soon midnight.

However, the lights on the second floor were still lit.

One of the guards yawned and began complaining. “…When is Chu Liuyue going to read until?! It’s so late, but she’s not sleeping yet!”

The other person was affected, and they began feeling tired too. “Who wouldn’t want the chance to go into the library and browse as they wish?! Would you spend your time sleeping? Besides, she’s probably really excited about finding the Earth-stage warrior technique! I would give up sleep to finish reading it if it were me!”

“Even if that’s the case, everyone needs a break, right? Even if she’s not tired, I’m tired from all the writing I’ve done today!”

The pair waited for a while and decided to take turns to record after seeing that Chu Liuyue had no intentions of stopping.

“This isn’t it… Not this… Not this one either…” Chu Liuyue scanned through another shelf, but she didn’t find anything.

Since she found the Jingshen Finger, she increased her rate of reading, and she had gone through about one-fifth of the books here. However, she didn’t find anything on the Jingshen Finger.

It was like a needle in a haystack.

Chu Liuyue sighed. Maybe there is only one scroll here. After all, if Tai Yan Academy really had the complete edition, it would’ve caused a lot of commotion.

Chu Liuyue was about to continue when Tuan Zi appeared and looked at her disapprovingly.

She paused. “Tuan Zi, what’s wrong?”

Tuan Zi crossed its paws and put it underneath its head.

Chu Liuyue burst out laughing. “You want me to sleep?”

Tuan Zi nodded vigorously.

Chu Liuyue shook her head. “Don’t worry; I’m not sleepy now.” She was thinking of the Jingshen Finger and was indeed not tired.

Just as she was about to walk forward, Tuan Zi stopped her and shook its head vigorously.

Chu Liuyue laughed and tapped Tuan Zi on its head. “Okay, stop shaking. I’ll go rest.”

It was only then that Tuan Zi rubbed itself against her face.

Perhaps it was because she had exhausted herself, but Chu Liuyue quickly fell asleep.

Chu Liuyue woke up early the next morning and picked up from where she left off.

The two keepers of the library had visible dark circles beneath their eyes from staying up all night. They couldn’t even remember what time Chu Liuyue had stopped last night, but she had begun again.

They were upset, but they resigned themselves to their fate of recording.

Cheng Han didn’t sleep well all night. The terrifying images in his mind didn’t disappear, even after he woke up.

They were all related to Chu Liuyue and… the Jingshen Finger.

Cheng Han felt uneasy and intended to go check on the library again, but he was stopped by someone.

It was the people who were investigating Yang Jianqing and Heng Jingchuo. The families of the two had been brought over, and they were to be interrogated by people from the three academies.

Cheng Han had no choice but to follow them.

The matter with the library was thus set aside.

Country Yao Chen, the palace.

The Empress couldn’t help but ask the two people before her, “Is there really no news?”

The pair nodded. “Your Majesty, we’ve searched the entire Imperial City quietly, but we haven’t found any traces of the Fourth Princess.”

The Empress limply leaned back into her chair as if all the energy had been sucked out of her.

It had been a few days, and they hadn’t received any news of Rong Zhen.

The two people were both from the Si family. If they said there were no signs, it really meant that they couldn’t find anything.

The Empress closed her eyes weakly.

They had intended to have Si Ting get information from Chu Liuyue, but he refused. Before she could find a replacement, Chu Liuyue had left for Tai Yan Academy.

She was really out of options now.

“I understand. You all head back first.” The Empress waved and dismissed the two.

Everyone in the palace knew they were from the Si family. They claimed that they were sending things on behalf of the Si family, so they naturally couldn’t stay for long.

The Empress remained on her seat after the two people left. She did not utter a word.

“What are you worried about, Empress?” A familiar voice suddenly came from the door.

The Empress was stunned, and she looked up to see Emperor Jiawen standing there! She jumped up before she hurried to greet him. “Greetings, Your Majesty!”

Emperor Jiawen walked over and helped her up. “Don’t stand on ceremony, Empress.”

The Empress smiled before she looked toward the servants. “His Majesty arrived, but none of you announced his arrival! You all…”

“Empress, don’t get mad at them. I told them not to.” Emperor Jiawen shook his head.

The Empress adjusted her expression and smiled. “Since you said it, Your Majesty, then I have no reason to chastise them. However, it’s been a long while since you’ve been here; I’m very flattered.”

Emperor Jiawen replied, “I’ve been a little cold towards all of you recently. I came to take a look since I heard that you’ve been in a bad mood. Oh right, I haven’t gone to see Zhen Zhen in a while. Why don’t you accompany me there?”
