Chapter 924: Trying to Murder Your Husband
Chu Liuyue’s heart turned into goo as she looked up and gently pecked his lips.
Slightly cold and soft.
“Rong Xiu, I’ll be your family in the future, okay?” She moved half an inch back, stared into his eyes, and said it ever so seriously.
Even without Rong Xiu voicing it, she could still feel his lonely aura as if it was exuded from his bones. His hand was cold, and so were his lips, but she felt that his heart was warm.
If he is alone in this world, I’m willing to accompany him forever as the love of his life and his closest kin.
She didn’t want to ask further; she only knew that he was him.
Everything else had nothing to do with them. No matter if he were Country Yao Chen’s Seventh Prince or Your Grace from a certain aristocratic family, it didn’t matter. What mattered was that they belonged to each other.
Rong Xiu looked at her and suddenly hugged her tightly with one hand. His other hand held her face as he kissed her.
One of his hands was very forceful as if he wanted to smash and merge her with his own bones and muscles, while his other hand was ridiculously careful as if it was holding a rare treasure, afraid that it would hurt her.
Within the endless uproars, he had a tinge of love and restraint.
A slurred syllable came out from his lips and teeth. “…Okay.”
Rong Xiu defeated Zhao Zicheng, and the resulting influence was much greater than they had expected. This was because other than Zhao Zicheng, there were quite a few handsome and talented lads in Xi Ling City that originally had an interest in Chu Liuyue.
No matter if it were her status, appearance, or talent, the current Chu Liuyue was definitely considered one of the top.
When she was still the Princess last time, countless people admired her. Now that she had retaliated against Jiang Yucheng and Shangguan Wan and even ascended the throne to bring honor back, she naturally attracted many people to bend their backs for her.
However, Rong Xiu’s appearance interrupted these people’s plans. With Zhao Zicheng falling in front until his head broke and blood spurted everywhere, the remaining few people naturally calmed down and thought about it carefully.
Even an eighth-grade Xuan Master could lose to Rong Xiu, which showed how strong he was!
It was impossible to say that they weren’t afraid. But at the same time, quite a few people had doubtful attitudes. Zhao Zicheng is a famous talent in Xi Ling City and can even be considered an elite amongst the younger generation. How could he lose to a mere prince from Country Yao Chen? But this news indeed came from the palace, and rumor has it that quite a few people personally witnessed it…
In no time, the crowd partook in heated discussions, and many people were curious about Rong Xiu.
Countless people wanted to personally see what kind of character this Rong Xiu was!
Chu Liuyue originally planned on confessing everything to Rong Xiu honestly and then proceeding on with their wedding after she settled everything on the Tianling Dynasty’s side. However, she didn’t expect Chu Ning to be abducted.
With this matter in the way, their wedding definitely couldn’t proceed.
Even though she knew that the note said that the other party wouldn’t casually hurt Chu Ning, Chu Liuyue was still very worried. From the start to the present, the other party knew my identity like the back of his hand. This means that he clearly came for me, but I don’t know anything about the other party at all.
After much thinking, she still asked Rong Xiu.
This time, Rong Xiu didn’t hesitate and directly nodded.
He knew where the note came from, but when Chu Liuyue wanted to ask further, Rong Xiu didn’t continue answering and just said that she currently wasn’t suited to know all of this.
Chu Liuyue was confused by this answer. “Then, when can I know?”
Rong Xiu paused. The current Chu Liuyue is only a stage-six warrior. Even if she knows about all of this, she can’t do anything about them. It would only add to her burdens.
“If you break through and become a stage-seven warrior a month later, I’ll tell you about it.”
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly. It’s not hard for me to break through to become a stage-seven warrior, but it’s hard to achieve it in a short one month’s time!
One had to know that she had just come back from the Red Moon Desert not long ago and that she just became an intermediate stage-six warrior!
This speed was already very fast. If she continued to break through to become a stage-seven warrior, it would be terrifying!
As if seeing through her considerations, Rong Xiu smiled and said, “If you trust me enough, I’ll be your training buddy for this month, okay?”
When Chu Liuyue saw his calm and composed smile, her heart suddenly burned with fighting desire. “That’s a deal.”
In the backyard of Shaoyue Palace was also a training arena. It was even bigger and of better quality than the previous one at Yuan He Palace.
This was the place where Chu Liuyue used to train.
Other than the very hard marble floor, the entire training arena was surrounded by a ninth-grade Xuan formation to guard it and ensure that any aftershocks caused on the training ground wouldn’t spread outside and harm others.
Chu Liuyue and Rong Xiu stood opposite each other.
As the former had already given her orders earlier, nobody in the palace was serving them in the surroundings. Only the two of them were on the vast training ground.
Chu Liuyue looked at Rong Xiu opposite her and couldn’t help but feel excited when she thought about how the two of them hadn’t really fought each other before despite knowing one another for so long.
I’ve long known that Rong Xiu is very strong, and I’ve finally waited until today, where I have recovered a portion of my power. Perhaps… I can go against him? When Chu Liuyue thought of this, her eyes lit up.
Seeing her excited manner, Rong Xiu raised his brows slightly. I do miss this familiar scene…
“Rong Xiu, don’t let me off easy later. Just attack!” Chu Liuyue believed that she wouldn’t be Rong Xiu’s match as a Xuan Master, but… It might not be the case for the warrior path!
After all, even though she looked like she was only an intermediate stage-six warrior, her combat skills had actually reached that of a stage-seven warrior!
The torturous training she previously experienced at the Red Moon Desert wasn’t for nothing!
Rong Xiu smiled and answered: “Okay.”
When Xue Xue—who was lying on the floor—heard this, it glanced at his own master with much contempt. You didn’t even blink when you lied. Pfft!
Detecting Xue Xue’s gaze, Rong Xiu glanced at it coldly. Not talking about the past, but Yue’er hasn’t even fully recovered now. If I really attack her without holding back, I’ll also be the one who suffers when she gets hurt. I can only dote on the wife I found for myself.
At this point, Chu Liuyue’s figure moved, and she went straight for Rong Xiu.
She was extremely fast.
The aspect that Chu Liuyue improved the most in after continuously fighting those puppets in the Red Moon Desert was her close-combat skills! Hence, even her speed had increased by quite a bit!
Now that she had already recovered her identity, she didn’t need to hide the many skills she had learned before. Due to this, it was naturally much more convenient for her.
In the blink of an eye, the slim and tall figure had already rushed to Rong Xiu! She clenched her bare fists and sent out a punch!
But before she could see Rong Xiu’s movements clearly, his figure had already disappeared before her!
Chu Liuyue’s punch landed on empty air, and she sent a side kick without even thinking.
Rong Xiu held her ankle easily.
Chu Liuyue was shocked, and she immediately took the chance to spin in midair.
Rong Xiu quickly let go of her and avoided her attack. “Tsk! Yue’er, are you trying to kill your husband?”
