At this moment, a silver ray of light flew in from outside and turned into a huge barrier that contained the pill!
At the same moment, a strong arm wrapped itself around Chu Liuyues slender waist and brought her away from the square cauldron!
The immense energy collided with the barrier and made a loud, deep sound!
A ripple appeared on the barrier and spread across it, quickly muting the loud noise before it disappeared.
The room was silent again, as if nothing had happened.
Chu Liuyues heart was still beating wildly, and a low laugh came from the side of her ear.
“Are you trying to make everyone vie with me over you with all this commotion” Only Rong Xiu could appear that quickly in that short amount of time.
As she leaned against Rong Xius warm and broad chest, Chu Liuyues wildly beating heart strangely felt calmer.
She heaved a sigh of relief as she watched the silver barrier contain the square cauldron and pill.
The loud commotion from the pill formation was bound to attract attention.
Once people found out…
Chu Liuyue closed her eyes.
Rong Xiu noticed that her voice sounded strange.
Hence, he turned to look at her, only to find that her face was especially pale.
His eyes were gloomy. She is clearly fatigued from exhausting all the energy in her body when she formed the pill.
Is this worth it for an unrelated person
“What were you going to do if I didnt show up”
Chu Liuyue paused as she looked up at him, only to see that Rong Xius expression was a little unreadable.
He seems… upset Chu Liuyue blinked and instinctively grabbed the front of his shirt.
“Your Highness really wont show up”
The surroundings were dim, but her eyes were bright.
It was like they were filled with stars.
Chu Liuyues tone was normal, but her voice moved Rong Xiu more than anything that he ever heard.
The trace of unhappiness at the bottom of his heart disappeared, making space for the immense joy he felt.
“You have me in your clutches, huh”
Chu Liuyue curled her lips and scoffed before she left his embrace.
But todays matter counts as you making up for your mistakes.”
“Making up for my mistake What mistake”
“Your Highness, you know it better than I do.
Do you really need me to point it out” Chu Liuyue did not notice it initially, but she felt something off a few days later.
What kind of person was Rong Xiu If he did not want to be disturbed by those girls, he naturally had a way for them not to appear before him.
However, Yan Qing was the one who asked them to leave that day.
There was nothing wrong with it, but it was not how Rong Xiu operated.
She had figured it out after thinking for a while.
Rong Xiu did not deny it. She has always been the smartest.
“I havent seen you in a while, and I see Yueer has been thinking about me.”
Chu Liuyue glanced at him, but she did not say anything since Rong Xius skin had always been the thickest anyway.
She walked over to the square cauldron and stared at the barrier.
“Your Highness, you have a lot of good stuff.
This crystal barrier is worth a lot.”
A crystal barrier was a special Yuan instrument that could be activated with just a little force to form a strong defense.
It was quite useful in times of crisis.
It managed to silence a fourth-grade pill instantly.
Rong Xiu raised his hand, and the silver light on the barrier disappeared to form a small, longan-sized, silver sphere.
“If you like it, its yours.”
Chu Liuyue walked over to the square cauldron and held the pill in her hands.
The energy wave from just now had been contained by the crystal barrier.
Now that everything was calm, it was safe.
She placed the pill into a box on the side and paused when she heard Rong Xius words.
She wanted to turn him down, but a crystal barrier was indeed very useful for her right now.
She could already form pills, so there was no way she could keep something like this under wraps if the same thing happened in the future.
Most importantly, she suspected that her ability to form pills was related to the water droplet in her body.
She did not have complete control over the water droplet, so she was not sure what kind of commotion she could cause in the future.
She thought about it and looked towards Rong Xiu.
“Then… name me a price, Your Highness!”
Rong Xiu raised his brows and walked over.
He held her hand and placed the crystal barrier in her hand.
“I said that Im gifting it to you, so its a gift.”
But Chu Liuyue refused to take it.
“Your Highness, I cant take things from you for nothing.”
“You owe me a lot anyway, so its just once more.” Rong Xiu tightly held her palm as he spoke.
Chu Liuyue did not know what to say…
That really does seem true… Other than these valuable treasures, I still owe Rong Xiu for saving my life multiple times…
“Theres nothing I want right now, so just save it for next time.
You can pay me back in the future when I think of something.”
Chu Liuyue took a deep breath and accepted the item graciously.
“Then thank you, Your Highness!”
Rong Xiu stared at her before he suddenly asked, “Oh right, I heard youre joining the Qing Jiao Competition”
Chu Liuyue was not surprised that he found out about it and nodded.
Rong Xiu narrowed his eyes.
“Ill leave the academy tomorrow and be back after a while.
Be careful while youre alone.”
Chu Liuyue asked strangely, “Leaving the academy Where are you going”
The instant the words left her mouth, she felt that it was inappropriate.
Rong Xiu was mysterious and strong.
He was not as simple as he looked, and she really did not have the right to ask what he was doing.
But Rong Xiu seemed happy to receive the question.
He curled his thin lips into a smile and pinched her face.
“This matter is rather serious.
Ill tell you about it when I return.”
A strange feeling flashed across Chu Liuyues heart.
Rong Xiu behaved like a husband talking to his wife before he left home.
She looked away and murmured an acknowledgment.
“Since Im leaving tomorrow, Yueer does not have any problems with me sleeping here tonight, right”
Chu Liuyue was speechless. I should not have let my mind wander just now! To think that I was even worried! It seems entirely unnecessary now!
There was no way Rong Xiu would be bullied! It was usually more the other way round.
