Chapter 673: Very Worth It!
The last treasure was successfully connected, and the fifth star finally appeared in the water droplet.
Almost at the same time, Chu Liuyue heard something cracking.
It was the barrier to become a stage-five warrior finally breaking.
It was as if a gate opened and water rushed out. The winds howled and brought along countless waves.
Chu Liuyue retrieved her hands, and the two balls of fire swiftly returned to her body.
A strong aura then spread from her body as the fifth line gradually appeared on the water droplet.
Chu Liuyue suddenly widened her eyes. Within them, there seemed to be two balls of fire burning intensely.
They sparkled more than ever.
A true stage-five warrior! She extended her hand and drew a wave of force with her hands.
Five stars vaguely appeared in her palms.
Within that force was an extraordinarily strong aura—her abilities had improved by a few times compared to before.
This… is the ability of a stage-five warrior that has connected all five treasures. Even the calm and composed Chu Liuyue couldn’t help but be excited. She never thought that not only could she reincarnate, but she could even cultivate to this extent once again.
Even if she still couldn’t compare to her previous self, Chu Liuyue could still clearly feel that she was reaching her previous self step by step as her abilities strengthened.
One day, I will return to the peak again! I will take back everything that belongs to me!
When the surrounding ripples gradually faded away, Chu Liuyue took a deep breath in to calm herself down. She then stood up and walked outside.
When the door opened, a few gazes shot over in unison.
Chu Liuyue followed those gazes and looked over.
She first saw Rong Xiu—the person behind him was Yan Qing. Beside him was a white-haired elder in a light-green robe, and he was smiling at her happily.
This is… Chu Liuyue was wondering who he was when Rong Xiu waved his sleeves, and the silver barrier silently went away.
Chu Liuyue then realized that he seemed to have set up a barrier outside the room. Is he… guarding for me? That’s true. I did cause quite a commotion earlier, and it would be troublesome if I attracted some other people over. I’ve been in Xi Ling’s limelight too much recently, and there are many pairs of eyes watching me openly and secretly. Even though I’m not afraid, I understand that it’s harder to guard against a secret sword than one out in the open. Thus, it’s better if I’m more careful. Besides… If the news of me connecting all five treasures as a stage-five warrior gets out, it will cause another storm to occur.
Thinking of this, a smile surfaced on her face as she was about to walk over.
However, that elder had already stepped toward her. “You’re Little Prin… Little Liuyue, right?”
Even though the elder’s face was wrinkled, his eyes were very clear, and he looked very energetic.
When he walked over, it was silent as if he didn’t move much, but he was already in front of her. Besides, his body had no movement of any force.
Chu Liuyue’s heart tingled. This elder’s abilities… are probably much better than I had predicted.
At this point, he was smiling happily at Chu Liuyue with a curious and concerned face.
Chu Liuyue glanced at Rong Xiu. Seeing a smile in his eyes, it was obvious that he was on good terms with this elder, so she obediently smiled and bowed. “Greetings, Senior. I’m Liuyue.”
36 Respected Elder Ming looked at the girl in front of him elatedly. Her face is porcelain white, her gaze is clean, and there is a faint elegance in her eyes. How likable! Not bad, not bad! Rong Xiu indeed has good taste! I liked her once I saw her!
“You don’t need to be this polite! I’m referred to as 36 Ming at Mingyue Tianshan. You can just call me 36 Resp—Elder!”
Oh, so he’s an elder from Mingyue Tianshan. Chu Liuyue understood and obediently called him.
“36 Elder came to Xi Ling this time for something important, and he took the chance to come over and take a look,” explained Rong Xiu when he walked over.
Chu Liuyue nodded and said apologetically, “Sorry for being unable to host you properly after you’ve traveled such a long time to get here. Please forgive me, 36 Elder.”
“It’s fine, it’s fine! I know that you were cultivating just now! I always come and go in a carefree manner, and I don’t care about such formalities! Besides, Rong Xiu is here! Also, it’s more important for you to break through!” As he spoke, his eyes shone with admiration. “Little Liuyue, your talent is indeed outstanding…”
It seems like he already knows about what happened earlier. A thought popped up in Chu Liuyue’s head. It’s hard for a strong warrior of such standards not to know when he was literally standing here. Besides, given Rong Xiu’s behavior, it seems like he is on very good terms with this elder and should trust him a lot. Then, there is nothing for me to hide.
“Thank you for the compliment, 36 Elder. I’m just a little lucky.”
36 Respected Elder Ming chuckled. “Some people might not even be able to do this even if they used up all their luck in the world. Little Liuyue, you don’t have to be humble! It’s this kid—Rong Xiu’s blessing to be able to find you!”
Rong Xiu raised his brows. Hm? It seems like someone jumped sides?
Chu Liuyue’s face reddened slightly. It’s the first time I’ve heard such words from an outsider… It feels strange…
36 Respected Elder Ming already disregarded Rong Xiu at this point, and he only cared about Chu Liuyue.
He had no family members his whole life, and he had no children. In the past, he had always treated Rong Xiu as family. Not only did he help him a lot, but he also regularly thought and planned for the other.
One could say that without him, Rong Xiu wouldn’t be able to sit at his position as Your Grace stably.
But there was one point—he had high expectations of Rong Xiu, so he always treated him stricter.
But once he saw Chu Liuyue, his entire heart melted. Such an adorable and pretty girl must be doted on!
“Little Liuyue, you’re already a stage-five warrior now, and you connected all five treasures. Therefore, you must now train your foundation well and stabilize your growth. I coincidentally have some Earth-grade warrior skills with me. Why don’t you come and choose what you like?” Then, 36 Respected Elder Ming waved his hand.
Many jade boxes instantly dropped out of the Cosmic Ring.
Those jade boxes were crystal clear, and they had a faint aura to them. It was obvious that extraordinary things were contained within them.
He coughed. “Elderlies’ things are messier—please bear with it. Take your pick! You can take whatever you like! If you don’t like them, I still have some here!”
Chu Liuyue was dazed for a moment. W-what does this mean… Why would there be a person who casually gives out Earth-grade warrior skills to a person they just met?
But seeing Chu Liuyue’s expression, 36 Respected Elder Ming misunderstood and thought that she didn’t like any of them.
He paused for a moment, pulled Chu Liuyue’s wrist to the side, lowered his voice, and said, “Little Liuyue, if you don’t like any of these… Then… I actually have better ones, but those can only be passed down to those in the same clan. I’m afraid I can only give you those after your wedding with Rong Xiu…”
Chu Liuyue’s brows twitched harshly.
He means that… If I marry Rong Xiu, he’ll give me Heaven-grade warrior skills?
