Chapter 719: Just Lucky
A red light then flashed in front of it, and Little Nine’s giant figure quickly changed. Eventually, it became the size of a palm.
Its entire body was presented in red, especially its tail. It looked like a burning fire—very passionate and intense.
The pair of watery eyes was very brilliant like precious gemstones—dazzling and charming!
Chu Liuyue stretched out her hand, and Little Nine quickly flew to her palm.
She didn’t even blink, and her eyes were filled with elation and emotions. Even though I’m not clear about how exactly Little Nine escaped the hunt and don’t know how it became Tuan Zi and found me… This isn’t the most important thing! It’s still around, and it came back to my side. This is already enough!
Chu Liuyue pondered for a moment and thought to herself, “Little Nine, I’m afraid I can’t call you this next time. Why don’t I continue calling you Tuan Zi?”
The Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant’s identity was already very sensitive. If she continued addressing it as Little Nine, it would be too blatant.
Anyway, she had already called it Tuan Zi for a very long time, and it had always used this name beside her. Thus, it was the most appropriate thing to continue calling it the same way.
Little Nine nodded seriously, and its head gently rubbed against her palm.
It was furry to the touch, and its obedient appearance made Chu Liuyue’s heart very soft.
Chu Liuyue lightly said, “Tuan Zi, I’ll bring you home.”
When everyone below saw the gigantic red-tailed phoenix turn into a palm-sized one in midair, they were all stunned.
Then, when they saw it fly to Chu Liuyue’s shoulders and the human and fiend came down, the crowd was even more in a mess.
In the end, everyone was stunned when they saw Chu Liuyue dotingly pat the red-tailed phoenix’s head as the latter rubbed against her neck lovingly, except for Lei Laosi’s group of two that was guarding all along.
W-what’s going on? Where’s the ferocious legendary fiend? What about the harsh and sharp red-tailed phoenix? Why did it suddenly become this little thing?! The key point is: Why is it so close to Chu Liuyue?!
Seeing Chu Liuyue standing in the middle and the ball of red on her shoulders, the surroundings fell into an eerie silence.
A light breeze blew over, and they could only hear the sound of the leaves rustling.
Chu Liuyue surveyed her surroundings and laughed. “What’s wrong with you all?”
This voice was like a stone dropping into a peaceful lake, instantly causing many ripples.
“Liuyue?! Y-you… What’s going on?” Mu Hongyu widened her almond-like eyes and shockingly asked, “I-isn’t this a legendary fiend?! Why did it become so small, and why is it on y-your…”
After stammering for half a day, Mu Hongyu still couldn’t complete her sentence.
Chu Liuyue blinked. “Oh, this? I think it’s only this big when it’s not in combat mode… But I’m not very sure either…”
Before Chu Liuyue could even finish talking, Tuan Zi nodded its head forcefully. Of course, it’s like this! If not, it’ll be troublesome to be so big! It’s easier for me to stay with Master like this!
Chu Liuyue turned around to glance at it and seriously said, “Oh, it seems like I didn’t guess wrongly. See? Even it says this too.”
The crowd was speechless. What did it say?! No, that’s not the crux of the issue!
“Liuyue, I-I’m not asking about this—” said Mu Hongyu with much difficulty as she looked conflicted.
At the side, Ye Ranran took the initiative to explain softly, “Liuyue, Hongyu wants to ask… What’s with you and this red-tailed phoenix? Wasn’t it very fierce toward you just now? Now, why…”
Everyone clearly saw what had happened.
This red-tailed phoenix was initially very rude toward Chu Liuyue at the start. There were even a few times where it seemed like it was going to kill Chu Liuyue!
Why did this human and fiend suddenly become so close in the blink of an eye?
Chu Liuyue suddenly realized something. “Oh, you’re asking about this…”
She smiled, and her eyes curled up as they dazzled like stars. “Because it has already become a fiend I made an agreement with.”
Because it already became a fiend you made an agreement with?! Everyone looked taken aback.
“W-what did you say?” This time, the person who spoke wasn’t Mu Hongyu or Ye Ranran but Jiang Yucheng. After a temporary daze, he was filled with shock and just blurted out this sentence.
Chu Liuyue lightly glanced at him in a seemingly smiling manner. “Did I not make myself clear just now? I said that this red-tailed phoenix is my fiend now.”
Her tone was very nonchalant as if she were saying something unimportant, but it sounded like thunder to the crowd.
Red-tailed phoenix! This legendary fiend actually made an agreement with Chu Liuyue?!
At the side, Elder Qiuxi finally recovered his senses as he stared at the small ball on Chu Liuyue’s shoulders dazedly. His old skin harshly shook. “Impossible! This is definitely impossible!”
There are so many people around, so why does it have to be Chu Liuyue?
“The red-tailed phoenix is a legendary fiend. How can it choose you?!”
Even though this sounded bad, it was very direct and voiced the suspicion in the others’ hearts.
If the red-tailed phoenix really wanted to find a human to make an agreement with, why did it choose Chu Liuyue out of all the people here?
Chu Liuyue slightly raised her chin and revealed the scratch on her neck. At this point, the bloodstains were still forming a scab.
“When it swallowed Tuan Z just now, I wanted to save it. But I didn’t expect an accident to happen in between, and this red-tailed phoenix’s claw scratched my neck, so I made an agreement with it for some reason… I just found out about it too.” Chu Liuyue explained the matter with a sincere tone, and she looked quite innocent. “It swallowed my fiend, so I can only take it to repay its debt.”
The crowd was speechless. That’s the legendary fiend everyone has been harping on about for ages, and you just took it as your own in such a ridiculous manner? And you even used a third-grade fiend to exchange for a legendary fiend!
The crowd fell into an eerie silence again. There’s no way. This is too shocking!
This was the first time they had seen a legendary fiend, and before they could even see it clearly, Chu Liuyue stepped ahead and obtained it first!
The key was that this entire matter was so coincidental that one couldn’t even intervene!
Everyone had personally seen Chu Liuyue’s blood ferret being swallowed by the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant, so it was also reasonable that Chu Liuyue wanted to save it.
And the Nine-Colored Heavenly Pheasant also should’ve attacked her. If not, there wouldn’t be a scratch on Chu Liuyue’s neck.
Normally, it was fine if it killed one person or even a hundred, but the key was that it was breaking through!
In the end… they made an agreement just like that?!
Mu Hongyu stuck out her thumb in admiration.
Ye Ranran also looked very excited. “Liuyue, you’re amazing!”
Chu Liuyue raised her brows slightly and smiled very humbly. “No, no. I’m just a little lucky.”
