The surroundings fell silent.
Chu Liuyue curved her eyes, retracted her gaze, and looked at the crowd.
“Everyone, youve waited long enough.
Whatever you want to ask, do ask.
Ill definitely answer honestly and tell you everything I know.”
Her straightforward and honest manner caused the crowd to be dazed for a moment. Shes really direct…
Quite a few people secretly exchanged glances. There are so many questions.
Which one should we ask first, and… who should ask
Chu Liuyue was still smiling as if she were very patient.
She didnt plan on wasting her time with these people.
The hesitation at this moment was just because they had their own plans.
But in actual fact, their targeting and doubts toward her wouldnt lessen because of this.
“Chu Yue, I have something to ask you!” The first person to stand up was actually Liang Xiaoxiao.
Liang Yiye was also taken aback and hurriedly gave his daughter a look.
However, Liang Xiaoxiao seemed to have spoken determinedly, and nobody could stop her.
Chu Liuyue nodded lightly.
“Senior Sister Liang, please ask.”
Liang Xiaoxiao stared at Chu Liuyue closely as if she wanted to dissect her from inside to out.
“Let me ask you this—in the Flood-Desert Northern Region, how did my Third Brother die!”
“Xiaoxiao!” Liang Yiye couldnt help but yell at her. She could ask such a question privately.
Why must you ask it in public There are people from Ling Xiao Academy present! Isnt this purposely putting them in a spot
Everyone knows that Ling Xiao Academy has a neutral stance toward such matters.
They definitely wont reveal a single word about this! If the people from Ling Xiao Academy misunderstand—
Chu Liuyue shrugged her shoulders and looked helpless.
“Sorry, Senior Sister Liang.
You should know the academys rules.”
“Of course, I know them!” However, Liang Xiaoxiao didnt look disappointed as she took half a step forward and continued questioning her fellow schoolmate.
“I received news that my Third Brother asked you for help back then.
The elders originally planned on helping, but you stopped it! Is this matter… true or false!”
Once she said this, the crowd was stunned, and they all looked at Chu Liuyue in unison. If this is true, then… Chu Yue has an undeniable responsibility for Liang Shaokangs death.
Even Liang Yiye had a look of suspicion. This news… Where did Xiaoxiao hear it from Why didnt I know about it But since she has already asked, then… There might be such a possibility!
Jiang Zhiyuan—who was standing behind Baili Chun—still hung her head low, but she was very energized.
She heard every single word clearly.
She pressed her lips against each other and squeezed the corner of her clothes with her hands, twisting them unintentionally. She asked… Liang Xiaoxiao really asked! It seems like it wasnt useless to ask Father to send a secret message over! I knew that Liang Shaokang and Liang Xiaoxiao had a good relationship.
Additionally, Liang Xiaoxiao is impulsive.
Once she is agitated, she can do anything.
Now, this cannon is finally pointed toward Chu Yue!
Chu Liuyue smiled and had a calm expression, with no ripples in her eyes.
“Senior Sister Liang, Im just an ordinary student.
What right do you have to command an elder Isnt this too much of an overestimation Besides, I dont know your Third Brother.
Why would I do this”
“Ordinary student” Liang Xiaoxiao chuckled in disdain as if she had heard some joke.
“You actually have the cheek to say that youre an ordinary student After entering the Flood-Desert Northern Region, you were trapped again and again.
Didnt you all manage to escape successfully because you helped to plan and strategize Back then, even a few elders seemed rather dependent on you, and they listened to your plans, right”
Quite a few people looked shocked.
Even though they knew that Chu Liuyue received an opportunity in the Flood-Desert Northern Region, they didnt know anything about what Liang Xiaoxiao said.
Now that they suddenly heard it, they were taken aback. The elders… all listened to a teen This seems ridiculous! However, Liang Xiaoxiaos strong questioning doesnt seem like she is lying.
As if detecting the doubts in the surroundings, Liang Xiaoxiao coldly grunted and said, “Everyone, you might not know, but Jiang Zhiyuan accidentally killed a nine-tailed green crow back then and caused the whole group of nine-tailed green crows to pursue them! In their panic, they had no other choice and no way to escape.
Finally, they followed Chu Yues escape route.
In the end, they successfully reached that gully and thus escaped safely!”
“And my Third Brother mightve been killed in that gully!”
“Under such circumstances back then, Chu Yue, your opinion was definitely important and could even affect the elders decision! Do you dare to admit it!” Liang Xiaoxiao was agitated, and her face was red.
There seemed to be an angry fire burning intensely in her eyes.
However, the crowd was taken aback by her cannonball-like questioning and couldnt recover their senses for a long time.
“Liang Xiaoxiao, you mean… Chu Yue brought them to the gully back then” asked a middle-aged man suddenly.
Everyones hearts rose. If this is true, does that not mean that… Chu Yue knew the gullys location from the start! This involves too many matters!
Instantly, countless questioning gazes landed on Chu Liuyue!
Elder Hua Feng and the others looked tense.
In actual fact, they had been very curious about this.
At that time, Chu Yues performance did seem like… she was very familiar with the Flood-Desert Northern Region.
But as Chu Yue didnt say much, they didnt ask further.
Who knew that Liang Xiaoxiao would actually bring this up and point the arrow at Chu Yue!
How would she know so much in detail! Someone must have told her about it!
Chu Liuyue was also thinking of this question.
Facing Liang Xiaoxiaos furious interrogation, Chu Liuyues reaction was much calmer.
She tilted her head and knitted her brows slightly as if she were in deep thought.
Liang Xiaoxiao sneered.
“What Are you guilty You cant make things up”
Chu Liuyue shook her head and smiled.
“No, I was just wondering—werent you chasing after Jiang Zhiyuan previously Why do you believe in her words so much now”
“W-what” Liang Xiaoxiaos expression froze, and she didnt react in time.
Chu Liuyue blinked and smiled as she patiently explained, “Only a few people know about that situation, and even fewer would be willing to tell you about this.
Senior Sister Liang, you might not know, but we were following what Jiang Zhiyuan said back at the Flood-Desert Northern Region.”
“We had just arrived at the Flood-Desert Northern Region back then, but we met trouble again and again.
After much struggle, we had nowhere to go.
Luckily, we met Jiang Zhiyuan later on.
She had coincidentally just escaped from a perilous situation and had run for a very long time, so she knew which way was the safest.
Hence, we directly chose to follow the path that she led.”
As she spoke, Chu Liuyue looked at Shi Ruier.
“Senior Sister Ruier, what do you think”
Shi Ruiers lips curled up.
Even though I dont like Jiang Zhiyuan normally, she was the most experienced one then, so we all chose to listen to her so that we could escape from the Flood-Desert Northern Region.
Jiang Zhiyuan was basically the one who led us all the way.
I dont know how… the leader actually became Junior Brother Chu Yue”
