Chu Liuyue was dazed. “What?!”
Seeing her reaction, Shangguan Jing immediately touched his nose guiltily. “Uh… The great phoenix dragon is an ancient legendary fiend… If they discover this skeleton’s aura, they will chase it back no matter what…”
A bad omen filled Chu Liuyue’s heart. “They won’t think that I did it, right?”
“Of course not! This great phoenix dragon has already died for more than thousands of years, and they can check this! However…” Shangguan Jing paused, and his voice floated through the air. “But it did die to the Long Yuan Sword back then, and you’re this Long Yuan Sword’s owner now…”
Chu Liuyue’s eyelids twitched. This means that this great phoenix dragon skeleton will most likely bring me a lot of trouble! It’s fine if it’s ordinary trouble, but that’s the great phoenix dragon clan! Once they come, they will definitely push the blame to me! By then, I will be dead!
Without saying anything, Chu Liuyue immediately turned around and retracted the Heavenly Square Cauldron. Can I not want the remaining half?!
But at this point, the half of the skeleton within the Heavenly Square Cauldron also seemed to detect the other half’s aura as it started to float outside.
Chu Liuyue hurriedly controlled the transparent fire.
“Back when I split the Long Yuan Sword into two, I managed to forcefully nail the two halves of the skeleton to the ground respectively. But now that they’re so close to each other… Actually…” There’s not much use.
Shangguan Yue tactfully didn’t say the remaining words when he met with Chu Liuyue’s vengeful gaze.
Chu Liuyue took a deep breath in and swiftly put away two halves of the skeleton into the Heavenly Square Cauldron.
The skeleton’s two halves merged together, and the transparent fire immediately enveloped it.
This commotion was then appeased.
The legendary three-eyed eagle also flew back in, and a voice sounded within Chu Liuyue’s heart. “The Heavenly Square Cauldron isn’t an ordinary object. If nothing goes wrong, it can completely cover the great phoenix dragon skeleton’s aura. Even if they had detected the aura earlier, they might not be able to find you.”
Chu Liuyue then felt reassured. Since things have already happened, I could only accept it as it is. Besides, perhaps I can better help the legendary three-eyed eagle restructure its body with this skeleton.
Thinking of this, Chu Liuyue took a deep breath in and stored the Heavenly Square Cauldron again.
She slowly looked at her ancestor. “Ancestor, there’s nothing else you’ve forgotten, right?”
Shangguan Jing had ruled the world, and millions obeyed and were loyal to him. However, he had never expected himself to be this embarrassed and guilty in front of a teenage girl.
He coughed heavily. “Nope! Nope! Right, I helped you place the items over there into the Long Yuan Sword! In the future, all of these things are yours! Y-you can spend them however you like, okay?”
Chu Liuyue looked at her ancestor’s meticulous face and finally couldn’t help but laugh.
Before this, I never imagined that the ancestor that had only existed in legends and scrolls would try to coax me so stupidly and genuinely.
Originally, she wasn’t really angry. Upon seeing the ancestor’s current reaction, her heart melted into goo.
Seeing that Chu Liuyue smiled, Shangguan Jing also heaved a sigh of relief.
For some reason, this girl seems to be my natural nemesis. I liked her a lot once I saw her, but I also feel terrible when I see her a little upset.
He was finally assured when he saw her relaxed expression.
Chu Liuyue suddenly thought of something and asked, “Oh right. Ancestor, after I take this Long Yuan Sword away… What happens if your descendants find out about it after I leave?”
If Shangguan Wan knows about this, she will definitely slaughter me more than a hundred times. Now that my status is unclear, it would be unsuitable if this gets exposed.
Shangguan Jing thought for a while and also knew Chu Liuyue’s considerations as he said, “If you don’t want anyone else to know… You can leave a strand of sword aura here. Even though the Heavenly Dao within this Minor Chiliocosm Small World has already disappeared, it can still last for many years. An average person wouldn’t be able to detect this change.”
Chu Liuyue smiled brightly. “Thank you, Ancestor!”
As she spoke, a thought popped up in her mind.
Two strands of sword aura flew out, respectively going in two different directions.
Very quickly, two gigantic Long Yuan Swords appeared between the burly heaven and earth.
At first glance, it really looked the same as before.
Only she and the ancestor knew about the secret behind this Minor Chiliocosm Small World. Even if Shangguan Wan and the rest came in, they wouldn’t suspect anything when they saw this.
Yet, Shangguan Jing looked at her dazedly.
Chu Liuyue touched her face. “Ancestor, did I do something wrong?”
Shangguan Jing recovered his senses and shook his head. “Nothing much.”
Her previous smile and face… really look quite similar…
Xuan Ji Square.
After Ning Jiaojiao was eliminated, only five names were left on the board.
It was already evening, but there were still many people waiting in the square.
“Ning Jiaojiao had already been ousted today. There won’t be anyone else eliminated, right?”
“Most likely… But this competition is going to end soon. Let’s wait a while longer!”
They had already waited for so many days, so what was this last bit of time?
Suddenly, a figure rushed out of the transportation formation and fell onto the ground in a disheveled manner.
The crowd erupted into an uproar. Originally, many people didn’t have much hope, and they thought that the next person would only be eliminated the next day.
They didn’t expect someone else to come out now.
“Quickly, look! Who is that?”
“It’s another woman!”
“Woman? Is it Chu Liuyue?”
Quite a few people fought to look at the woman on the ground. Her situation was actually even worse than Ning Jiaojiao’s.
She was covered in injuries, and there was a very clear and bloody hole on her back. It was obvious that someone pierced her with a sword.
She looked like she was on her last breath. It was as though she would stop breathing at any moment.
At this point, a name slowly faded from the black marble board.
“It’s Yang Qin’er?!”
“That woman is Yang Qin’er!”
“Everyone else in Purple Xiao Sword Sect has already been eliminated, leaving this one brought in from outside Heaven’s Canopy. I didn’t expect her to last until fifth place.”
“Pfft, I wonder who was so harsh… If that wound was tilted a little more, it would be her heart…”
“It’s a competition after all…” The crowd was discussing heartily.
Elder Duanmu Chun went up to check on her and indeed saw that Yang Qin’er was in a half-conscious state, so he called people to bring her away.
Yang Qin’er could hear the surrounding voices, but she couldn’t open her eyes. Her throat was dry and burning as well, so she couldn’t say anything either. Long Yuan Sword… That person…
“Another person came out!” Someone within the crowd gasped.
Two figures were transported out one after another.
The entire square burst into commotion. Two people were actually eliminated at once!
Yuwen Jinghong put down his arms in shock. “Both of them are men!”
This meant that there were only two people left in the Tianling God Realm!
Chu Liuyue… was one of them!
