Chapter 480: Acknowledge You as Owner!

But Hong Yao quickly landed on Chu Liuyue’s shoulders and retracted its wings.

The soldier who was leading the way did not notice this abnormality.

The other shoulder sank slightly, and it was Tuan Zi that came out.

It crossed its arms and glared at Hong Yao. Just when Chu Liuyue thought it was going to cause trouble for Hong Yao, Tuan Zi curled its tail and sat on her shoulders obediently.

Chu Liuyue heaved a sigh of relief. It’s rare to see the two of them not fight.

Chu Liuyue looked at the soldier in front and saw that he was looking at her in shock.

“Is there something on my face?” asked Chu Liuyue.

“Ah? No—nothing!” That soldier suddenly recovered his senses and hurriedly lowered his head, but the turmoil in his heart couldn’t be appeased. Hong Yao is actually so close to this Ms. Chu! One has to know that other than Lieutenant Mu, others can’t even touch it. I wonder how Ms. Chu did this…

All the soldiers who entered Mu Residence were all trained and disciplined.

Even though he was very shocked and curious about this, his expression quickly returned to normal. “Ms. Chu, please head here—”

Chu Liuyue followed him to a small yard at the Mu Residence’s back.

“Lieutenant said that when you come, you’ll stay in Feng He Garden first. The interior and exterior have been cleaned and tidied, so you can just live here without any worries. During this time, I’ll be in charge of everything related to you.”

Chu Liuyue slightly nodded and smiled. “Thank you… May I know how I should address you?”

“I’m Duan Ziyu, Black Guard military officer!” said Duan Ziyu confidently with his back straight.

“Thank you, Officer Duan.”

“You’re welcome, Ms. Chu!”

Chu Liuyue pointed toward the inside. “Then, I’ll go in first?”

Duan Ziyu said, “Go ahead.”

Chu Liuyue then walked toward Feng He Garden. Without turning around, she also knew that Duan Ziyu was standing outside the garden.

Actually, she could feel that quite a few people were hiding in all directions of Feng He Garden, not just Duan Ziyu.

Chu Liuyue didn’t care if they were protecting her or watching her. Either way, she had a lot of things to do since she was at Xi Ling.

She walked into the room, closed the doors and windows, sat down, and went to examine Hong Yao.

She let Hong Yao hug her obediently.

Chu Liuyue pulled open its wings and saw a light wound as expected.

The bloodstains had dried, and the wound just formed a scab. It looked like it was a recent wound, but it was lucky that it wasn’t lethal.

But the key point was: Hong Yao was a high-level fiend itself, and everyone knew that it was Mu Qinghe’s fiend. Who would be so daring as to injure it?

“Who?” asked Chu Liuyue shortly with knitted brows.

But Hong Yao just hugged her hand and leaned its forehead close to her palm. Its clear ruby eyes had a rare tinge of sadness and melancholy.

A hot tear silently dropped.

Chu Liuyue felt pain in her heart. She always doted on Hong Yao and couldn’t bear to see it this sad.

“What’s the matter? Who bullied you?” Chu Liuyue gently wiped its tears and gently asked. In Xi Ling, Hong Yao is known as the number one bully. There really aren’t many people who dare to bully it…

Hong Yao just shook its head.

Chu Liuyue pondered for a moment. If it got injured because of normal fighting, it definitely wouldn’t have this reaction. It seems like it has more to do with… Mu Qinghe.

“Where’s your Master?” asked Chu Liuyue.

Hong Yao did not move and did not say anything.

Chu Liuyue was helpless and could only pat its head lightly. Mu Qinghe’s situation shouldn’t be great…

Hong Yao quickly fell asleep in her hands. Chu Liuyue then carefully put it down.

Tuan Zi squatted beside it, a rare occurrence.

Chu Liuyue felt slightly more relaxed, glanced at the bracelet on her wrist, and hesitated for a moment before taking it off.

She sat cross-legged, and her hands were on her knees. She gently closed her eyes and started to cultivate.

Everything happened too suddenly when she broke through and became a stage-three warrior, so she didn’t have the time to check her condition properly.

Now, she finally could calm down.

In her dantian, the three lines on the water droplet quietly floated.

The transparent fire in the Heavenly Square Cauldron kept burning, and the soul trapped within it was on its last breath.

Chu Liuyue knew that it still had to burn for some time, so she didn’t care much about it.

“Purplish-gold Buddha leaf,” said the legendary three-eyed eagle suddenly.

Chu Liuyue was dazed. “What?”

“If you want to recover my physical body, you need purplish-gold Buddha leaf. The garden that you went to today had this thing,” explained the legendary three-eyed eagle.

Chu Liuyue frowned. “Xin Li Garden? There isn’t such a thing there.”

“Yes, there is. My instincts won’t be wrong.”

“No—” Chu Liuyue instinctively wanted to deny it. She had personally taken care of many of the herbs in Xin Li Garden, so she naturally knew what they contained. At the very least, the garden definitely didn’t have any purplish-gold Buddha leaf when she was around.

This was because this herb was only a rumored existence in the entire Tianling Dynasty.

Besides, the purplish-gold Buddha leaf was a very rare herb. Rumors had it that the leaf’s fragrance could travel for hundreds of miles. If Xin Li Garden really had it, why couldn’t she smell it?

“Did you get it wrong?” asked Chu Liuyue.

The legendary three-eyed eagle’s voice was kind of cold. “The purplish-gold Buddha tree is a legendary tree in my clan. Why would I recognize it wrongly?”

Chu Liuyue instantly couldn’t retort. The legendary three-eyed eagle really has no need to lie to me. Then… Did someone put it there after my death? But do Shangguan Wan and Jiang Yucheng have the ability to get a purplish-gold Buddha tree?

“Then, do you know where the purplish-gold Buddha leaf is?”

“I know the rough position, but… There’s a challenge apart from that. Besides, the thousand-year purplish-gold Buddha leaf has its own spiritual energy. Not only is it very good at defense, but it can also hide itself very well. Even if normal people see it, they won’t be able to recognize it, much less get it. Based on your current abilities… Dream on.”

Chu Liuyue was speechless. What’s the use of you telling me that?!

She slowly said, “So you’re telling me this to insult me?”

“Of course not. I don’t have that luxury.”

Can’t you talk properly then?!

“An average person can’t even get close to a purplish-gold Buddha leaf, let alone take it. But you have my aura, so all of this isn’t a problem.”

Chu Liuyue frowned. “You’re in my dantian. As long as there’s no need to hide, my body has your aura. Isn’t this enough?”

“Of course not.” The legendary three-eyed eagle paused for a while and said, “My physical body is now ruined, and only my legendary soul is left, which has nothing to do with you. Even though my aura can exude from your body, it has nothing to do with your aura on its own.”

Chu Liuyue asked, “What should we do then?”

The legendary three-eyed eagle did not speak for a long time.

Just as Chu Liuyue thought it wasn’t going to speak, its voice finally sounded. “If I acknowledge you as my Master, you can take the purplish-gold Buddha leaf!”
