Gradually, a strange pattern appeared on the circular plate.
Suddenly, Chu Liuyue felt a tremendous yet weird aura in her body. This is… the legendary three-eyed eagle!
Following this, the surrounding Heaven and Earth Force started flowing toward her suddenly and silently.
The speed of absorption was much faster than when she was cultivating herself.
Chu Liuyue was slightly shocked, but she still instinctively absorbed the strength and converted it inside her body.
After some time, this commotion finally stopped.
That circular plate suddenly became a ray of light, and together with the legendary three-eyed eagle’s black apparition, it entered Chu Liuyue’s body.
Chu Liuyue could clearly feel that something was different—another wave of Heavenly Dao was in her body.
She slowly lowered her head and looked at her hands. In this short amount of time, her capabilities had strengthened by quite a bit, and she almost reached the wall of stage-four warriors.
“If an average stage-three warrior makes a pact with a legendary fiend and accepts the Heavenly Dao, they would at least break through and become a peak stage-four warrior, or even directly advance to the fifth stage. You actually didn’t even cross the boundary to become a stage-four warrior…” said the legendary three-eyed eagle suddenly.
Chu Liuyue was caught between laughter and tears and shrugged her shoulders. I originally thought that I had improved by quite a bit, but I did not expect… But my body does have such a problem, and I’m basically used to it.
“This is good. Even though one can quickly increase their cultivation level by counting on external forces to break through, it might not completely be a good thing.”
Now, she really hoped to fight with some people to test her foundation. The Wan Zheng Competition… is indeed an extraordinary chance!
The next morning, Chu Liuyue simply packed some items and left.
Duan Ziyu was waiting outside the yard.
Seeing him, Chu Liuyue then remembered that she was busy with the legendary three-eyed eagle yesterday and had actually forgotten about Mu Qinghe.
She asked, “Is Lieutenant Mu back?”
Duan Ziyu respectfully said, “Lieutenant came back at night yesterday, but he had already left an hour ago.”
“He left? What’s so urgent?” Chu Liuyue was puzzled. What can Mu Qinghe be busy with? He shouldn’t have recovered from his injuries yet, right?
“I don’t know about this. Lieutenant told me to bring you to participate in the Wan Zheng Competition.”
Chu Liuyue smiled. “Sorry for the trouble then, Officer Duan.”
When she woke up, Hong Yao had already left. It must’ve gone to find Mu Qinghe.
Actually, she wanted to see him once, but it most likely couldn’t happen now. Thus, she could only wait. “The next time Lieutenant Mu comes back, kindly let me know, Officer Duan. I have some things to discuss with him.”
Due to Hong Yao, Duan Ziyu was more polite toward Chu Liuyue. “Don’t worry, Ms. Chu.”
Both of them then left for Xuan Ji Square.
People were already bustling to and fro on the streets. Most of the people were walking in the same direction.
Chu Liuyue and Duan Ziyu followed the crowd.
Although Duan Ziyu was wearing the black armor, there were many Black Guards around the entire Xi Ling. Hence, he didn’t draw much attention.
On the other hand, Chu Liuyue had attracted quite a few gazes. At any place, her devastatingly beautiful appearance would be in the spotlight.
“Who is that girl? Why have I never seen her in Xi Ling City before?”
“She definitely won’t be a nobody with such an appearance. I think she came from outside Heaven’s Canopy and is here to join the Wan Zheng Competition.”
“Ah, I recognize her! She’s the woman that won against Wu Zhao yesterday! I think she’s called… called… Ah, yes—Chu Liuyue!” Someone suddenly said this, and it caused quite the commotion amongst the crowd.
As a beginner stage-five warrior, Wu Zhao was beaten by a stage-three warrior at Ping Liang Square. He even had to give the other party ten white crystals before he could leave.
This incident had already spread throughout Xi Ling City.
Actually, a battle of such standards normally wouldn’t attract much attention since strong warriors could be found everywhere here, but the difference between the duo’s cultivation levels was too big. Yet, the weaker one won in the end, which would naturally make the crowd curious.
They did not expect it to be her…
Chu Liuyue was long used to such gazes and comments, so she ignored all of them and continued walking forward.
On the other hand, Duan Ziyu couldn’t help but look at her a few more times. Actually, he had already heard of this the day before. But thinking of it now, I’m still in disbelief. Especially when I interacted with Chu Liuyue, the feeling she gave off was gentle and elegant, nothing like that harsh character… But someone that Lieutenant picked personally is definitely not ordinary.
Besides, I can clearly feel that Chu Liuyue’s surrounding aura is much stronger than the day before. This woman might actually have some tricks up her sleeves…
Xuan Ji Square was the second biggest square in the entire Xi Ling, and it was big enough to contain 100,000 people at the same time.
Chu Liuyue reached the square with the crowd and saw the ever so familiar square-shaped square.
It was surrounded by circular stairs, and there were already quite a few people waiting there, obviously wanting to join in on the commotion.
After all, all the people who participated in this Wan Zheng Competition were Dijing Yuan meridian warriors, so one could just imagine how incredible the competition would be.
The arena was surrounded by Black Guards wearing black armor, who held long spears while standing tidily in lines.
There were quite a few pockets of people standing around the square. A rough estimate would be at least 200 to 300 people.
Many people kept going up repeatedly. These people were clearly Dijing Yuan meridian cultivators.
Chu Liuyue narrowed her eyes. There are actually a few familiar faces out of these people. This Wan Zheng Competition doesn’t seem to be only prepared for cultivators with Dijing Yuan meridian from outside Heaven’s Canopy. Some of the younger talents in Xi Ling City have also arrived. What are Shangguan Wan and the rest doing?
“Ms. Chu, I can only send you until here,” said Duan Ziyu softly. “I’ll be waiting for you there.”
Chu Liuyue slightly nodded and walked forward on her own.
Walking to the edge of the square, two soldiers stopped her. “Show us your identity.”
A thought popped up in Chu Liuyue’s heart as she raised her hand and showed the bracelet on her wrist to the two of them.
The two of them confirmed it and backed off. “Please…”
The moment Chu Liuyue went up, she heard whispers from the side.
One of the voices was extra familiar.
Chu Liuyue turned and looked. She saw a few people standing together, who were pointing and talking about her.
The person in the middle was Zhao Yunzhi, who she had a grudge against the day before.
Noticing that Chu Liuyue looked over, Zhao Yunzhi didn’t feel guilty. She even sneered and raised her voice. “There, it’s her.”
The few people beside her revealed looks of disgust. “You’re really just a stage-three warrior?! Where did she get the guts to offend our Sky-Soaring Clan?”
“She looks young, but she’s very arrogant.”
Delight flashed across Zhao Yunzhi’s eyes, and she walked to Chu Liuyue. “Chu Liuyue, I want to challenge you. Do you agree?!”
