“Sure,” said Chu Liuyue with a smile.
She had just come to the academy, so she didn’t know many people here. Probably because they entered on the same day and all passed the assessment at the beginning of the month to officially become Ling Xiao Academy’s students that they felt closer.
Even though Zhuo Sheng wasn’t polite toward her at the very beginning, Chu Liuyue realized that he didn’t have any bad intentions after getting to know him. It was just that he was quite hot-tempered and loud. In actual fact, the few of them had good personalities.
Besides, Chu Liuyue now knew that the few of them came from the Luo family at Ming Sha Ocean, which was a true distinguished family. Even if it was compared to the Sky-Cloud Empire, the Luo family was still on par with it.
It was quite rare for one to be born in such an aristocratic family but not have a wilful personality.
Chu Liuyue wanted to get to know them better, so she agreed to Luo Shishi’s invitation.
Hearing Chu Liuyue’s affirmative reply, Luo Shishi was also elated. ‘Then, we’ll see you tonight at Million Wine Mountain!”
Million Wine Mountain was a mountain inside Ling Xiao Academy, and it faced the northwest direction. It was at the intersection between the heavenly doctor area and the Armory Refinement Master area.
The reason why Million Wine Mountain got its name was that it had an extremely magical fountain. The water that flowed out of the fountain had a natural alcohol fragrance, and it tasted very similar to wine but wasn’t intoxicating.
Hence, the students in the academy loved to go there. It could be considered as a popular place for leisure and relaxation in the academy.
Chu Liuyue naturally nodded in agreement. “Okay.”
Receiving Chu Liuyue’s affirmative reply, Luo Shishi then secretly heaved a sigh of relief and felt happy.
Chu Yue was clearly three years younger than her, but for some reason, she always felt nervous when she stood in front of him. His body seemed to have a natural elegance that caused others not to dare treat him casually.
Detecting the solid gaze from above, Chu Liuyue raised her brows slightly and looked up.
Noticing her gaze, Luo Shishi looked up as well.
“Senior Brother Rong Xiu is really amazing.” Luo Shishi sighed sincerely. “It’d be great if I could have the chance to duel with him.”
Chu Liuyue turned back to look at her and smiled. “What, you like Rong Xiu too?,
This ‘too’ was naturally said in comparison with the other surrounding women who were crazy about him.
Luo Shishi hurriedly shook her head in denial. “Why would l?! I just feel that he’s quite amazing. After all, he’s someone who has topped the ranking for a few consecutive years. I believe every student in the academy wants to be like him, right?”
With Yan Shuli as a painful example in front, Luo Shishi didn’t even dare to mention ‘overtaking’ Rong Xiu. The facts showed that it was already very difficult for them to catch up with him.
MB-besides, Senior Brother Rong Xiu already has a princess consort!”
Perhaps it was because of the unknown nervousness in her heart, but Luo Shishi didn’t notice that the youngster in front of her didn’t say ‘senior brother’ when he talked about Rong Xiu and that his tone and attitude were very calm and normal. It was completely different from the other academy students who respected, envied, or were jealous of Rong Xiu.
“That’s true.” Chu Liuyue nodded thoughtfully. At the very least, I really want to fight with him at this moment.
As Luo Shishi and Chu Liuyue stood at the side and talked about this, it looked like the two of them were coupled together and were spending a merry time from above.
“Rong Xiu, Rong Xiu?” Elder Bo Yan called Rong Xiu twice before the latter recovered his senses. “‘What are you looking at?”
Rong Xiu silently retracted his gaze and smiled slightly. “Nothing much.” Then, he jumped up and flew back to Dong Huang Clock Tower.
Yan Shuli said he would battle him another day and quickly turned around to leave.
Nobody stopped him.
Anybody who lost so badly in public wouldn’t be able to stick around. Besides, Yan Shuli had already waited a very long time for this battle. Without a doubt, this matter had a tremendous impact on him.
However, Yan Shuli had a positive trait—the more he failed, the braver he got.
If other people lost, they would inevitably be upset and unmotivated. If they failed multiple times, the situation might be worse, and they might feel very defeated.
However, Yan Shuli definitely didn’t have such a problem. This defeat would only spur a stronger fighting desire to rise.
From this aspect, his competitive nature had benefits as well.
This match started suddenly and ended unexpectedly. Before the crowd could recover their senses, everything had ended.
Quite a few people were hesitant. “Sigh, what a pity! Originally, I thought I could see an amazing fight. I didn’t expect
“He countered his enemy in one move, and the person was even Yan Shuli! I’m afraid only Senior Brother Rong Xiu can do this in the entire academy, right?” “I wanted to take the chance and learn from observing him, but I had no chance at all! If only I had come to the academy a few years earlier. Perhaps I could’ve seen Senior Brother Rong Xiu fight more„_”
“Haha, you’re overthinking things! Everyone in Ling Xiao Academy knows that Senior Brother Rong Xiu never ever fights someone for the second time.”
Hearing the discussions below, the crowd standing in Dong Huang Clock Tower exchanged gazes of unspoken mutual understanding as they all smiled.
To most people, Rong Xiu really didn’t have the patience to fight the people he had defeated for the second time. However, Yan Shuli couldn’t be considered as the only exception.
From beginning to end, the only one who Rong Xiu would make an exception for was only one person. Those n•vo people would have a ‘friendly match’ once every few days, and they had fought countless times.
In the beginning, that person would always lose. However, Rong Xiu seemed to have limitless patience and tolerance for her as he would accede to her every request.
But that was something that happened much earlier on___
Ever since that person left the academy or ‘disappeared,’ Rong Xiu returned to the Sky Cloud Empire not long after and rarely came back to the academy ever since.
All sorts of scenes that happened in the past couldn’t really be seen now either.
“What? Do you have any junior sisters or junior brothers that you think are capable?” Elder Bo Yan asked in a joking manner.
Rong Xiu thought for a moment and actually nodded. ‘There’s one that’s not bad.”
“Oh?” Elder Bo Yan was originally teasing him, so he couldn’t help but be surprised when he heard Rong Xiu’s words.
He looked down. “Which one?”
Rong Xiu smiled. “You clearly know it, so why ask?”
Elder Bo Yan widened his eyes slightly. “_..lt’s really.. Chu Yue?”
Rong Xiu raised his brows slightly and nodded. “She has some natural talent as a heavenly doctor.”
“That’s true.” After Elder Bo Yan was shocked, he quickly accepted Rong Xiu’s thinking. “That child isn’t bad.”
Ifnot, Elder Wan Zheng wouldn’t have accepted him. Even though he can’t be compared to that person from back then, they are quite similar.. Elder Bo Yan glanced carefully at the youngster standing below, stroked his beard, and said seriously, “If we properly nurture him, his future will definitely be bright!”
