“Chu Liuyue seems to stay on the second floor… Shes more talented as a Xuan Master and heavenly doctor.
Why doesnt she go to the third and fourth floors” Mo Cang muttered curiously, oblivious to Cheng Hans reaction.
This made Cheng Han worry even more.
Thats right! If she didnt know something, why would Chu Liuyue only remain on the second floor and not go to the other floors Also, she started reading the other books after she found that one scroll on Earth-stage warrior techniques! She is clearly looking for something!
Cheng Han was anxious, but he couldnt rush in and stop Chu Liuyue!
Words were still appearing on the stone tablet.
Chu Liuyue was still going through the books on the second floor at lightning speed.
And another book.
Cheng Han stood there unmoved.
The others dared not move and waited alongside him.
After a long while, Elder Mo Cang spoke up.
“…Director, Chu Liuyue is going to be in there for a while.
You… dont intend to wait here, do you”
Cheng Han was even more frustrated. Of course, I know! That is what I am most worried about!
He didnt expect Chu Liuyue to find and read the Jingshen Finger, but staying here would be strange and would most definitely attract a lot of peoples attention!
“Observe carefully! Record down all the books that Chu Liuyue has gone through!” With that, he turned and left.
Elder Mo Cang found Cheng Hans reaction strange, and he turned to look at the library again. Whats the director worried about
After Cheng Han and Elder Mo Cang left, only the two people in charge of guarding the library were left.
Given the way things had developed, they dared not let their guard down, and they continued watching her closely.
Time passed, and it was soon midnight.
However, the lights on the second floor were still lit.
One of the guards yawned and began complaining.
“…When is Chu Liuyue going to read until! Its so late, but shes not sleeping yet!”
The other person was affected, and they began feeling tired too.
“Who wouldnt want the chance to go into the library and browse as they wish! Would you spend your time sleeping Besides, shes probably really excited about finding the Earth-stage warrior technique! I would give up sleep to finish reading it if it were me!”
“Even if thats the case, everyone needs a break, right Even if shes not tired, Im tired from all the writing Ive done today!”
The pair waited for a while and decided to take turns to record after seeing that Chu Liuyue had no intentions of stopping.
“This isnt it… Not this… Not this one either…” Chu Liuyue scanned through another shelf, but she didnt find anything.
Since she found the Jingshen Finger, she increased her rate of reading, and she had gone through about one-fifth of the books here.
However, she didnt find anything on the Jingshen Finger.
It was like a needle in a haystack.
Chu Liuyue sighed. Maybe there is only one scroll here.
After all, if Tai Yan Academy really had the complete edition, it wouldve caused a lot of commotion.
Chu Liuyue was about to continue when Tuan Zi appeared and looked at her disapprovingly.
“Tuan Zi, whats wrong”
Tuan Zi crossed its paws and put it underneath its head.
Chu Liuyue burst out laughing.
“You want me to sleep”
Tuan Zi nodded vigorously.
Chu Liuyue shook her head.
“Dont worry; Im not sleepy now.” She was thinking of the Jingshen Finger and was indeed not tired.
Just as she was about to walk forward, Tuan Zi stopped her and shook its head vigorously.
Chu Liuyue laughed and tapped Tuan Zi on its head.
“Okay, stop shaking.
Ill go rest.”
It was only then that Tuan Zi rubbed itself against her face.
Perhaps it was because she had exhausted herself, but Chu Liuyue quickly fell asleep.
Chu Liuyue woke up early the next morning and picked up from where she left off.
The two keepers of the library had visible dark circles beneath their eyes from staying up all night.
They couldnt even remember what time Chu Liuyue had stopped last night, but she had begun again.
They were upset, but they resigned themselves to their fate of recording.
Cheng Han didnt sleep well all night.
The terrifying images in his mind didnt disappear, even after he woke up.
They were all related to Chu Liuyue and… the Jingshen Finger.
Cheng Han felt uneasy and intended to go check on the library again, but he was stopped by someone.
It was the people who were investigating Yang Jianqing and Heng Jingchuo.
The families of the two had been brought over, and they were to be interrogated by people from the three academies.
Cheng Han had no choice but to follow them.
The matter with the library was thus set aside.
Country Yao Chen, the palace.
The Empress couldnt help but ask the two people before her, “Is there really no news”
The pair nodded.
“Your Majesty, weve searched the entire Imperial City quietly, but we havent found any traces of the Fourth Princess.”
The Empress limply leaned back into her chair as if all the energy had been sucked out of her.
It had been a few days, and they hadnt received any news of Rong Zhen.
The two people were both from the Si family.
If they said there were no signs, it really meant that they couldnt find anything.
The Empress closed her eyes weakly.
They had intended to have Si Ting get information from Chu Liuyue, but he refused.
Before she could find a replacement, Chu Liuyue had left for Tai Yan Academy.
She was really out of options now.
You all head back first.” The Empress waved and dismissed the two.
Everyone in the palace knew they were from the Si family.
They claimed that they were sending things on behalf of the Si family, so they naturally couldnt stay for long.
The Empress remained on her seat after the two people left.
She did not utter a word.
“What are you worried about, Empress” A familiar voice suddenly came from the door.
The Empress was stunned, and she looked up to see Emperor Jiawen standing there! She jumped up before she hurried to greet him.
“Greetings, Your Majesty!”
Emperor Jiawen walked over and helped her up.
“Dont stand on ceremony, Empress.”
The Empress smiled before she looked toward the servants.
“His Majesty arrived, but none of you announced his arrival! You all…”
“Empress, dont get mad at them.
I told them not to.” Emperor Jiawen shook his head.
The Empress adjusted her expression and smiled.
“Since you said it, Your Majesty, then I have no reason to chastise them.
However, its been a long while since youve been here; Im very flattered.”
Emperor Jiawen replied, “Ive been a little cold towards all of you recently.
I came to take a look since I heard that youve been in a bad mood.
Oh right, I havent gone to see Zhen Zhen in a while.
Why dont you accompany me there”
