Chapter 1135 Have an Appointment with a Lady
Wei Xiping was first shocked, and when he reacted, his expression was ugly. He clenched his teeth and didn’t speak a word as his surrounding aura became cold and stiff.
His hands in his sleeves gradually clenched tighter. Rong Xiu… He didn’t waste his time these past few years and even improved?! How exactly did he do it?!
Wei Xiping wasn’t the only one curious about this.
Yan Shuli wanted to know even more. He stared at Rong Xiu closely and said carefully, “You’ve already—” “No.” As if predicting what he would say, Rong Xiu’s lips curled up slightly as he flung his arm and threw the spear back. “But it’s enough to go against you.” Yan Shuli grabbed his spear, stared at Rong Xiu with furrowed brows, and felt complicated. I suspect that Rong Xiu has already formed his Holy Body, but since the latter denies it, he shouldn’t have done so yet. But judging by the previous scene, he does have such signs.
Without a doubt, the gap between the duo had widened once again! Yan Shuli originally thought that he could close the gap between him and Rong Xiu after practicing so hard these few years or that he could even overtake the latter! However, he didn’t expect that Rong Xiu would improve even faster than him!
He held the spear tightly and looked down.
Bloodstains started to expand on his chest.
If Rong Xiu wanted, he could totally take my life! Yan Shuli took a deep breath in, and when he looked up at Rong Xiu again, the sense of defeat and shock in his eyes had already disappeared. “Today, I lost to you because I am weaker and have admitted defeat. However, there will be a day where I’ll beat you!”
Rong Xiu raised his brows. Yan Shuli always says this after he loses, and I’m already used to it. However, I won’t give him such a chance.
The duo had already ended their battle in the sky. However, the surrounding spectators hadn’t recovered their senses yet. I-it ended just like that?! From start to end, only one move was made?!
The entire process looked enraging, but the more this was so, the more it proved how capable Rong Xiu was!
Nobody doubted that Yan Shuli wasn’t strong enough. Of the top three people on the warrior list, he was the only one still in the academy the past few years. Even so, nobody dared to challenge him.
How could someone win against a 25-year-old legendary warrior so easily?!
To many students, Yan Shuli was the epitome of a talented warrior! They could only look up to him but not reach his standard!
However, even such a person couldn’t play out more than one move under Rong Xiu.
Rong Xiu’s strength… Was unimaginable!
“Senior Brother Rong Xiu is indeed formidable! He actually agreed to Senior Brother Yan Shuli so easily!”
“Previously, there were rumors that he was the top talent in the academy for so many years, and it’s not outrageous to say that he was a legendary existence! In the beginning, I thought that it was just an exaggeration, but who knew… After personally witnessing him, I realize that everything is true!”
“It’s a pity that Senior Brother Rong Xiu hasn’t been in the academy for the past few years, and it’s hard to even see him once. This time, he shouldn’t stay for long, right…”
“I wonder what kind of woman would this man like-“
“Do you still need to ask? Of course, it’s Jiang Zhiyuan! Her Fairy Water Mound is the strongest division in the Sky-Cloud Empire, and the two of them have known each other much long ago. They can even be considered childhood sweethearts!”
“Huh? Don’t you know? Rong Xiu has just selected his princess consort a while back!”
“I heard that his princess consort is someone from outside the realm… Anyway, it has nothing to do with that Jiang Zhiyuan…”
Quite a few girls discussed softly.
Some people started to look for Jiang Zhiyuan’s figure quietly. When the gazes landed on her, Jiang Zhiyuan felt many daggers at her back. She used an enormous amount of strength to control her urge to turn around and run away!
Even though Rong Xiu coincidently left the academy when she came and the duo didn’t spend much time in school together, other than the new students that just came, more than half of Ling Xiao Academy knew that she liked Rong Xiu. Amongst these people, some of them even tried to matchmake her.
Of course, this was also part of her plan.
Jiang Zhiyuan was pretty and talented, so she was naturally everyone’s treasure-like existence in the academy. Quite a few senior and junior brothers had a good impression of her, and some even tried to chase after her passionately. However, they were all rejected by Jiang Zhiyuan.
In the beginning, nobody knew why she did this. But later, there were rumors that although she was born in Fairy Water Mound, she grew up in the Sky-Cloud Empire from a young age as the clan leader loved her.
It wasn’t too much to say that she was the Sky-Cloud Empire’s Big Missy that was doted on since she was young. In such a way, everyone naturally associated her with Rong Xiu.
Some even secretly came to find out some news from her.
Jiang Zhiyuan didn’t admit it, but she did not deny it either. Hence, everyone gradually knew of this matter.
Quite a few people secretly felt that Jiang Zhiyuan would end up with Rong Xiu, but who knew that a woman would suddenly come out of nowhere and become Rong Xiu’s princess consort?!
Now, there were people who pitied Jiang Zhiyuan, mocked her, or watched her become a laughingstock.
How could Jiang Zhiyuan not know this? Hence, those gazes and discussions made her feel even more terrible.
She wanted to leave, but she couldn’t bear to. Thus, she could only stand around and be tortured.
Chu Liuyue had also heard such discussions, and she raised her brows slightly and felt quite incredulous. Rong Xiu can be considered a famous character in Ling Xiao Academy…
“Chu Yue? Chu Yue?” A familiar voice sounded.
Chu Liuyue turned around and was slightly shocked to see the incoming person. “Ms. Luo, why are you here?” She should be at the warrior side. Why did she suddenly come to the heavenly doctor’s side?
“You… came to find me?” Chu Liuyue tried to ask.
Luo Shishi’s cheeks flushed red slightly as she looked at Chu Liuyue with sparkling eyes. “Yeah, I came to congratulate you! Congratulations on becoming Elder Wan Zheng’s disciple! I heard that he has very high standards! You’re the only one that has succeeded in these few years!”
So it was because of this. Chu Liuyue’s eyes curved up, and she smiled. “Thank you. Congratulations to you as well. Your mentor is Elder Wen Xi, right?”.
“Yes!” Luo Shishi nodded and was clearly elated.
Elder Wen Xi was one of the top few elders in the academy, and he had a good personality. Luo Shishi also felt very lucky to be able to become his disciple.
“Brother Sheng is also Elder Wen Xi’s disciple, like me. Fifth Brother is following Elder Hua Feng. Originally, he wanted to follow Qiniang like Fourth Brother, but Qiniang has already accepted many students. Thus, Fifth Brother chose Elder Hua Feng in the end.”
Actually, these two elders were equally capable. As long as one focused on cultivation, it wouldn’t be very different.
Chu Liuyue smiled. “That’s great. Congratulations.”
The youngster smiled kindly, and his eyes were clear. His smile made everything in the surroundings lose its color.
Luo Shishi was momentarily dazed. For some reason, she blushed slightly. “We’re going to celebrate at night. Do you want to come?”
When Rong Xiu looked down, he coincidentally saw this scene-a handsome young man standing opposite a pretty girl. That young woman blushed slightly, and her eyes sparkled in a shy and happy manner. That young man then looked down slightly as if he were thinking of something before he looked up and smiled at that young woman.
Rong Xiu’s brows moved slightly in a seemingly smiling manner, but there seemed to be hints of frost in his eyes. She just came, but… she already has a date with a lady?
