Chapter 596: Back of the Mountains

“You suggested this yourself just now. Why do you disagree with it now?” asked Chu Liuyue with raised brows.

Jian Fengchi was stumped. “I was only casually talking just now…”

“Oh… I thought so too. How is it possible for Young Master Jian to calculate this amount of money with us, right?” said Chu Liuyue with a smile.

Jian Fengchi almost spat out blood. Chu Liuyue wants to snatch her away without paying a single cent!

At the side, Shui Liu’er finally couldn’t watch on and helped Jian Fengchi say, “At the auction, quite a few people have seen Hongyu. We were also seen by some people when we brought Hongyu out. The news of Young Master Jian bidding for Hongyu must’ve spread throughout Xi Ling now…. If Hongyu joins Chong Xu Cabinet, people will inevitably overthink.”

Jian Fengchi heaved a sigh of relief.

Chu Liuyue looked at Mu Hongyu. “Hongyu, Sister… Little Liu’er, makes sense. What do you think?”

Mu Hongyu was conflicted. She had heard them talk so much, and she was generally clear that these two options would result in different consequences.

In her heart, she naturally wanted to choose Chu Liuyue. But if this would bring the latter trouble… it wouldn’t be good.

Shui Liu’er smiled slightly and softly said, “Ms. Chu, you also might not like what I’m going to say next, but I still need to. Chong Xu Cabinet is still one of the top four clans in Xi Ling on the surface, but everyone knows what their actual situation is. You and Qiang Wanzhou have your own reasons for joining Chong Xu Cabinet, but this might not be the best choice for Mu Hongyu.”

Chu Liuyue didn’t get angry and nodded instead as if she agreed with this.

Shui Liu’er relaxed a little and continued, “Mu Hongyu now has the Faint Yuan Body, which is a top cultivator body. She’s one in a million—compared to other cultivators, she’s much stronger. The more this is so, the more she needs a famous mentor to guide her along. She also needs an optimal environment… Dragon Teeth Mountain is the most appropriate one!”

No matter what area it was, Dragon Teeth Mountain was completely better than Chong Xu Cabinet.

“Mu Hongyu’s abilities will definitely attract many people’s contempt. Even though she has already left Yu Xiang Hall, there still might be people who will attack her in the future. But if she joins Dragon Teeth Mountain… it will indubitably be much safer. At the very least, people will have to take an extra layer of consideration into account.” Shui Liu’er spoke gently and curtly and analyzed all the pros and cons very clearly.

After Mu Hongyu heard this, she lowered her head in deep thought for quite some time before looking at Chu Liuyue. “Liuyue, I plan to go to Dragon Teeth Mountain. As long as I become a strong warrior, I won’t be your burden anymore. I can even help you instead.”

Chu Liuyue’s heart felt warm. “Since you’ve already thought of it, just do it.”

Mu Hongyu nodded seriously and revealed a gloomy smile. “It’s good if I stay here, but… What about Yao Chen? My parents don’t know where I am now, and they don’t know my current situation. They’ll definitely be super anxious.”

Chu Liuyue asked, “Do you have a way to contact them?”

Mu Hongyu’s expression darkened. “I originally did, but I escaped the whole way here and have long dropped everything on me…”

Chu Liuyue pondered for a moment and agreed. “I’ll help you send the news back later.”

Mu Hongyu then relaxed.

The few of them talked for a while longer, and Chu Liuyue briefly explained her experiences in this period before telling Mu Hongyu about the many situations in Xi Ling. This was so that the latter paid more attention in case she attracted trouble.

In the end, Mu Hongyu left with Jian Fengchi and Shui Liu’er reluctantly.

Luckily, Jian Fengchi had good medical skills, so Chu Liuyue wasn’t worried about her friend’s injuries.

As long as Dragon Teeth Mountain could protect her, nothing else mattered.

After sending the few of them away, Chu Liuyue sat down and started to write the letter.

Normally, people couldn’t casually exit Heaven’s Canopy. So if one wanted to send letters, the safest and most convenient method was to pay money to someone to send the letter. But this was a little pricey, and normal people could not afford it.

However, this wasn’t a problem for Chu Liuyue. After she finished writing, she sent the letter out.

This letter was for Qi Han, who was still at Yao Chen.

This kind of business valued trust the most, so Chu Liuyue wasn’t worried that someone would open her letter halfway. Besides, even if one opened it, nobody else could understand it except the Thirteen Yue Guard.

After doing all of this, Chu Liuyue returned to Chong Xu Cabinet.

At the mountain entrance, she met Ye Ranran.

Before Chu Liuyue could speak, Ye Ranran asked, “Liuyue, why did you only come now?”

Chu Liuyue looked at her amiss expression and asked, “What, did something happen?”

Ye Ranran walked to her side, and her small, round face was filled with worry. “Cabinet Master just returned, and he looked a little weird. He then went to the back of the mountains alone and stayed there for a very long time… You might not know, but the Cabinet Master’s son is buried there… Actually, Cabinet Master rarely goes there, but I don’t know what’s with him today…”

Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly. Weichi Song should’ve seen something in the zither room today and realized that my death back then had something to do with Jiang Yucheng. Thus, he had such a reaction. But I can’t expose my identity now, so I can’t advise him. There is no use in convincing him at this point, so I can only wait until he gets over it himself.

“Mentor said that you left with Cabinet Master today. Do you know why?” asked Ye Ranran again. Cabinet Master was still much more energized the day before because of the medicinal garden’s happenings. But only this amount of time has passed, and he became like that… We worry so much about him.

Chu Liuyue pressed her lips against each other. “I’m not too sure either, but… I think he became like this after I accompanied him to Xin Li Garden.”
