Chapter 223: Someone She Liked
Chu Liuyue was actually successful in her challenge!
Sun Zhongyans words were like thunder that struck beside the crowds ears, causing all of them to wake up in shock.
Oh yes! She challenged Situ Ziyu—who was in first place—so she will naturally rank first now that Situ Ziyue has surrendered.
Even though they had seen the match personally, the crowd still could not believe the scene in front of them.
Not only did Chu Liuyue win, but she had even broken through in the middle of the battle!
This incident—which sounded like a fairytale—had actually unfolded before their eyes, and they had to believe it!
Even Tian Lu Academys people were shocked, and their mouths were agape.
They were unable to recover their senses for a long time.
Chu Liuyues lips slightly curved up as she left the arena.
However, she did not directly go back to her seat and went to Chu Ning instead.
Upon seeing her come down, Chu Ning hurriedly walked forward and grabbed her arm with his hand.
He then scrutinized her body as he nervously asked, “Yueer! Are you okay”
The previous match was very intense, and he was terrified when he watched them from the side.
Chu Liuyue stretched her arms wide open and smiled happily.
“Youre a stage-five warrior.
Cant you tell if Im injured”
Chu Ning personally checked Chu Liuyues body and realized that she did not have any particularly severe problems other than force exhaustion.
Only then did he relax.
Upon hearing her words, he could not help but laugh.
“So what if Im a stage-five warrior My Yueer can actually beat an advanced stage-four warrior! In no time, even I wont be your match!”
He was worried, but he was equally proud and elated.
The previous match was indeed very risky.
Chu Ning knew very clearly that if it werent for Yueer successfully breaking through in the end, she wouldve lost this match.
Luckily, it was just a farce.
Chu Liuyue winked playfully.
“How is it the same Father is always the strongest person in my heart! However, you can finally relax now, right”
After the Wan Ling Mountain incident, even though Chu Ning did not say anything, she knew that it had left him with trauma.
Even when both of them were at home, he would frequently call out her name.
If he did not see her for a period of time, he would start to get anxious and scared.
After experiencing the feeling of losing his daughter once, Chu Ning became extremely fearful.
Chu Liuyue intended to assure him, so she did not play any unnecessary tricks in the arena today.
She had put in her best effort instead.
Now that she won against Situ Ziyue, Chu Ning was clearly pretty reassured.
How could Chu Ning not know her intentions His heart was full, and tears started welling up in his eyes.
He held Chu Liuyues shoulders, and his lips moved, but something seemed to be stuck in his throat.
After a while, he said, “… Yueer is naturally the best!”
Chu Liuyue smiled obediently.
“Then, Ill go back first.
Maybe someone might even challenge me later on.
You should go back and take a seat too.”
Chu Ning acknowledged her words and rushed her to get some rest.
The two of them separated and went back to their respective seats.
However, Chu Nings eyes never left Chu Liuyues body.
He saw her walk back.
He saw the Tian Lu Academy crowd enthusiastically cheering for her, and he saw how everyone looked at her with much envy and surprise…
Chu Ning sighed deeply.
His eyes also turned red as he could not help but laugh. My Yueer is no longer the cowardly young girl who can be bullied by anyone.
The current her is like the sun in the sky, shining and dazzling brightly.
Chu Liuyues return was once again welcomed by the academys people.
However, she sensitively noticed that the atmosphere seemed different from the day before.
How should I put it It seems like everyone is kind of… respectful to me out of fear No matter if it is their behavior or their way of talking, they seem more restrained than before.
They are also looking at me with weird gazes.
Chu Liuyue touched her face.
“Is there something on my face”
The crowd was silent for a while.
Si Yang stuck out his thumb.
“The glory of a genius.”
Chu Liuyue was speechless.
She really could not expect anything else from a hog but a grunt with Si Yangs glib tongue.
She decisively looked at Mu Hongyu.
“Whats with them”
I just went to compete in a match, but why does everything seem weird after I returned
Mu Hongyu hugged the golden mane bear cub, looked at Chu Liuyue, and swallowed her saliva with much difficulty.
“Liuyue, d-did you hide your abilities previously”
Thats Situ Ziyue! She actually won! She even made him vomit blood!
Just think about how arrogant he was before.
In the blink of an eye, he was thoroughly taught a lesson!
Chu Liuyue pondered for a moment.
Mu Hongyu was at a loss for words. W-when
“Take it as if I didnt ask.” She closed her eyes. Im really dumb for asking such a question.
Ever since Chu Liuyue entered the academy, every single incident has proven her outstanding talent and abilities.
To think I still believed the difference between us wasnt that big!
“Ill diligently cultivate in the future!”
Cen Hu strongly nodded.
Gu Mingfeng looked at Chu Liuyue with deep meaning.
Chu Liuyue was speechless.
She returned to her seat and sat down.
Her surroundings gradually quietened down, but the curious and surprised gazes did not decrease.
She did not really care about them and wanted to close her eyes to meditate.
However, Si Ting suddenly spoke.
“That crystal barrier… Is it from that person”
Chu Liuyue looked at him strangely.
Si Ting squinted his eyes.
“The person you like.”
Chu Liuyue paused for a while and gently nodded.
Si Ting was silent for a moment.
“It seems like you really like him.” Then, he turned around.
Chu Liuyue was taken aback. Why are Si Tings words so strange I just used a crystal barrier.
But she did not ask any further as it seemed like Si Ting did not plan on continuing the conversation.
She took out the small silver ball and started playing with it in her hands.
Si Ting sighed in his heart. I can finally put her down at this point.
Originally, I thought she was just saying it as a courtesy.
I didnt expect it to be true.
Perhaps even she doesnt realize how mesmerizing her instinctive smile is when she talks about that person.
I wonder who is so lucky to win her heart.
